Exceptionally, in infrequent and highly specific situations, we may also process your information:
In certain cases, we use your information to pursue our and others' legitimate interests, which include:
We use the information we have to help us operate, provide, improve, understand, customize, support, and market our Services. We use the information we have about you in the following ways and for the following purposes:
We do not collect or compile information for dissemination or sale to outside parties for consumer marketing purposes, or host mailings on behalf of third parties.
Where we act as a controller, information which has been submitted to PricewaterhouseCoopers Ireland can be legitimately disclosed to other member firms in the PricewaterhouseCoopers network of firms. Your information will also be transferred to third party service providers who process information on PwC's behalf, such as providers of information technology, identity management, website hosting and management, data analysis, data back-up, security and storage services.
Your information is not shared with any member firms in the PricewaterhouseCoopers network of firms, or shared with any third party, for any secondary or unrelated purposes, unless otherwise disclosed to you. If there is an instance where such information is sought to be shared, we will notify you in advance.
Your information may be transferred outside the country where you are located in connection with the provision of the Services. This includes countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and countries that do not have laws that provide equivalent protection for your information.
We have taken steps to ensure all information is provided with adequate protection and that all transfers of information outside the EEA are lawful. We will only transfer information outside of the EEA to a recipient who (i) is located in a country determined by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of protection for information; (ii) is subject to an agreement, derogation or other legal act which allows for the lawful transfer of information outside the EEA, such as the European Commission standard contractual clauses or the EU-US Privacy Shield.
We recognise that your information is important to you and we take appropriate measures to protect your information while it is in our care. We have implemented appropriate technical and organisational security measures in order to protect your information from unauthorised or unlawful disclosure, loss, misuse, alteration, destruction damage to such information.
Individuals have certain rights over their information and controllers are responsible for fulfilling these rights. As outlined, in certain circumstances, we act as a controller of your information. We have therefore provided information below about the rights that individuals have and how to exercise them.
We like to keep your information accurate and up to date. If you would like to access or update your information, or you would like details of the information which you have submitted to us, please do so via the original registration page or please email us.
If we are informed that any information we hold is no longer accurate, we will make appropriate corrections based on the updated information provided.
You can request that we restrict, rectify or limit our processing of your information by contacting us. You can also request that we delete your information.
If we process your information based on our legitimate interests explained above, or in the public interest, you can object to this processing in certain circumstances. In such cases, we will cease processing your information unless we have compelling legitimate grounds to continue processing or where it is needed for legal reasons.
If you no longer want to receive our marketing emails, you can always opt out by contacting us or by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the relevant email which you have received.
Where we've asked for your consent to process your information, and you want to withdraw that consent, you can do so at any time. To withdraw consent to our processing of your information please email us.
In certain cases, we may continue to process your information after you have withdrawn consent if we have a legal basis to do so or if your withdrawal of consent was limited to certain processing activities.
We hope that you won't ever need to, but if you do want to complain about our use of your information, please send an email with the details of your complaint.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the Data Protection Commission (DPC), the Irish data protection regulator. For further information on your rights and how to complain to the DPC, please refer to the DPC website or contact the DPC using the following details:
