We (“PwC”, “us”, or “our”) are strongly committed to protecting personal data. This transparency notice (i) describes why and how we collect and use personal data in our recruitment processes, and (ii) provides information about rights of individuals applying for a job at PwC.
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable living person. When collecting and using personal data, our policy is to be transparent about why and how we process personal data.
We take the security of all the data we hold very seriously. We adhere to internationally recognised security standards and our information security management system relating to client confidential data is independently certified as complying with the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001: 2013. We have a framework of policies, procedures and training in place covering data protection, confidentiality and security and regularly review the appropriateness of the measures we have in place to keep the data we hold secure.
We collect personal data from job applicants as part of our recruitment process. The personal data may be provided directly to PwC by an applicant or via third party, i.a. recruitment agency, depending on a particular recruitment process.
The information we process include standard information regarding your education, employment history, other work-related information and any other information provided to us on your CV or application letter or in any other recruitment forms you are asked to fill in as part of the process.
You are asked not to provide us with any information regarding the so called “special category of personal data”, including race, ethnic origin, politics, religion, trade union membership, genetics, biometrics (where used for ID purposes), health, sex life or sexual orientation.
We use information held about you in the following ways:
PwC holds and processes your data based on a lawful basis i.e. provisions of the Labour Code if you apply for an employment contract at PwC and a contractual basis if you apply for a position under a civil contract. We may also process some of your data in pursuit of our legitimate interest in recruiting you as a candidate. Where you consent to our use of your data for specific purposes we will process the data based on your consent.
In case of unsuccessful recruitment process we will hold your data based on your consent.
If your application is successful your data is saved for the implementation of the employment or contractual relationship, complying with statutory regulations.
Application documents of unsuccessful candidates are deleted after six months at the latest after the recruitment process is closed. We ask for your consent before
retaining your application documents in our applicant pool for a longer period.
We will only share personal data with others when we are legally permitted to do so. When we share data with others, we put contractual arrangements and security mechanisms in place to protect the data and to comply with our data protection, confidentiality and security standards.
We are part of a global network of firms and in common with other professional service providers, we use third parties located in other countries to help us run our business. As a result, personal data may be transferred outside the countries where we and our clients are located.
In respect of personal data being regulated by EU legislation please note that: cross border transfers may include countries outside the European Economic Area ("EEA") and to countries that do not have laws that provide specific protection for personal data. We have taken steps to ensure all personal data is provided with adequate protection and that all transfers of personal data outside the EEA are done lawfully. Where we transfer personal data outside of the EEA to a country not determined by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data, the transfers will be under an agreement which covers the EU requirements for the transfer of personal data outside the EEA, such as the European Commission approved standard contractual clauses. The European Commission approved standard contractual clauses are available here.
