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 will process your personal data based on our legitimate business interests or the consent, if you were requested to express one. We have an interest in marketing our services or providing communications which we think will be of interest to recipients.
Your personal data will be retained on the PwC CRM (Customer Relationship Management) system for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out above or till your consent withdrawal.
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.

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 email@example.com or using a dedicated form accessed here.
To update personal data submitted to us, you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Where 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 email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com. 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/.
