PricewaterhouseCoopers has redesigned its Global Web site, including the Privacy Statement. The new Privacy Statement provides:

  • Continued emphasis on our privacy mission.

PricewaterhouseCoopers is a privacy conscious global organization and is strongly committed to your right to privacy. The Privacy Statement follows the guidelines set by the Online Privacy Alliance and is in accordance with local and international data protection legislation. By submitting identifying data, a visitor to our web site is agreeing to PricewaterhouseCoopers’ use of such data as described in this Privacy Statement. Should you have questions, however, feel free to direct these to our privacy office at privacy@pwc.com.

The PricewaterhouseCoopers Privacy Mission

Generally, PricewaterhouseCoopers only collects identifying information that is specifically and voluntarily provided by a visitor to our site. A visitor to our site may choose to provide this information to register for certain areas of the site, apply for a job, or order a publication. When a visitor provides this type of identifying information to us we use it solely for the purposes for which it was provided. We recognize that your information is valuable and we take all reasonable measures required by law to protect your information and avoid loss, adulteration, treatment or unauthorized access while it is in our care. Notwithstanding, the visitor should be conscious that Internet security measures are not impregnable. Information will be kept confidential at all times except where its disclosure is required by court order or when it is vital to public security, national defense or public health. However, should a visitor apply for a job, his identifying information may be used by PricewaterhouseCoopers personnel, by third parties hired for data management, or by persons in charge of personnel recruitment, who will treat this information as strictly confidential. We use small text files called cookies to improve the overall site experience; however, these are not used to track individual visitors to our site. The use of cookies is now standard operating procedure for most web sites; however, if you are uncomfortable with the use of cookies most browsers now permit users to opt out of receiving them. Our full privacy policy is accessible through the left-hand navigation bar. The policy clearly states our commitment to creating a safe and enjoyable online experience for visitors to our site.

PricewaterhouseCoopers is a global leader in the development and implementation of privacy assurance and third-party verification services. Our leadership is established not only by the range of experience we have in the development and assurance of privacy policies, but also by our own example. Because the web site has areas where individuals can provide identifying information, we have developed our PricewaterhouseCoopers Privacy Statement to inform web site visitors of our policies and practices regarding such information.

Our commitment to the privacy protection of consumers both online and offline is continued, for example, through our involvement in the following US privacy initiatives:
  • PricewaterhouseCoopers Privacy Audits and e-Assurance
  • Online Privacy Alliance
  • TRUSTe
  • Privacy and American Business
  • BBBOnline
  • AICPA’s CPA WebTrust

PricewaterhouseCoopers encourages all visitors to review these web seal initiatives, investigate the programs, and actively seek a web seal in all sites that you visit and provide personally identifying information. PricewaterhouseCoopers may modify the present commitment to tailor it to any legislation changes or jurisprudence that could arise. Under these circumstances, PricewaterhouseCoopers will inform visitors of these changes reasonably in advance.

Visitors to this site may exercise access rights, correction or suppression of identifying data provided by them, in accordance with current legislation.
