According to our standards we only collect personal data necessary for our specified purposes, and we encourage our customers to only share personal data where it is strictly required for those purposes.
If, as part of the professional services provided to customers, we also need to process the data of individuals with whom we do not have direct communication (for example, members of the client's family), we ask our customers to provide the relevant data subjects with information about the use of their data. Our customers may use the relevant sections of this privacy statement or refer to this privacy statement in their communication with these data subjects if they deem it appropriate.
PwC may process the following personal data:
name and surname;
contact information (e.g. email address, phone);
position or information about economic activity;
salary information and other financial information;
information on investments and other financial holdings.
Generally, we obtain personal data from our customers or third parties acting on instructions of that customer. For some of our services, such as conducting due diligence on an acquisition transaction on behalf of a customer, we may obtain personal data from the target company's management and employees or third parties acting on the target company's instructions.
