We (“PwC”, “us”, or “our”) are strongly committed to protecting personal data. This transparency notice describes why and how we collect and use personal data and provides information about individuals’ rights. We may use personal data provided to us for any of the purposes described in this transparency notice or as otherwise stated at the point of collection.
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 clients and potential clients as part of the registration process. The personal data may be provided directly to PwC by potential client/client or by his/her employer depending on the training provided by PwC.
The information we process include standard information necessary for your registration and relating to the specific training. 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.
Your personal data may be used for the following purposes:
The processing of personal data takes place in order to perform a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract, as well as on the basis of our legitimate business interests as a data controller. Our legitimate business interest is related to direct marketing of our services or providing information which we think will be of interest to recipients, as well as to maintain our Learning Platform and security management of the platform.
Your personal data will be retained on the PwC’s Academy Learning Platform as well as local PwC Academy database.
We retain the personal data processed by us for as long as is considered necessary for the purpose for which it was collected (including as required by applicable law and regulation), equivalent with the period of having an account on the platform.
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.
Personal data held by us may be transferred to:
The data controller is PricewaterhouseCoopers Slovensko s.r.o. or such PwC member firm, listed at https://www.pwc.com/gx/en/about/office-locations.html, that is a contracting party for the purposes of providing or receiving services or the entity you have contacted.

Individuals have certain rights over their personal data and data controllers are responsible for fulfilling these rights. Where we decide how and why personal data is processed, we are a data controller and include further information about the rights that individuals have and how to exercise them below.
You have a right of access to personal data held by us as a data controller. This right may be exercised by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To update personal data submitted to us, you may email us at email@example.com or, where appropriate, contact us via the relevant website registration page or by amending the personal details held on relevant applications with which you registered.
When practically possible, once we are informed that any personal data processed by us is no longer accurate, we will make corrections (where appropriate) based on your updated information.
In case we process personal data based on consent, individuals have a right to withdraw consent at any time. We do not generally process personal data based on consent (as we can usually rely on another legal basis). To withdraw consent to our processing of your personal data please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or, to stop receiving an email from a PwC marketing list, please click on the unsubscribe link in the relevant email received from us.
You have the right to restrict or object to the processing of your personal information at any time, on reasonable grounds relating to your particular situation, unless the processing is required by law.
In such case, we will no longer process or restrict the processing of the personal data, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
This transparency notice is intended to provide information about what personal data we collect about you and how it is used. As well as rights of access, amendment and restriction or objection to processing referred to above, individuals may have other rights in relation to the personal data we hold, such as a right to erasure/deletion and the right to data portability.
If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please send an email to email@example.com.
We hope that you won’t ever need to, but if you do want to complain about our use of personal data, please send an email with the details of your complaint to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will look into and respond to any complaints we receive.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the Data Protection Office of the Slovak Republic. For further information on your rights and how to complain to the Data Protection Office of the Slovak Republic, please refer to the https://dataprotection.gov.sk/uoou/.
