PwC is strongly committed to protecting personal data. This privacy statement describes why and how we collect and use personal data and provides information about individuals’ rights. It applies to personal data provided to us, both by individuals themselves or by others. We may use personal data provided to us for any of the purposes described in this privacy statement or as otherwise stated at the point of collection.
“PwC” (and “we”, “us”, or “our”) refers to PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, the limited partnership registered in England under registration no. OC303525 and with its registration address at 1 Embankment Place, London, WC2N 6RH, and such other PwC member firm in the UK and their subsidiaries (such as PwC Legal ME LLP) that: (1) is a contracting party for the purposes of providing or receiving services, (2) posted a position for which you are applying, or (3) you have a role or relationship with. Each member firm in the PwC network is a separate legal entity and a separate controller for personal data. For further details, please see www.pwc.com/structure. (Please note this privacy statement does not cover the activities of Embankment Place Primary Healthcare Ltd (“the Clinic”), which is not included within the definition of “PwC”, “we”, “us”, and “our”).
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable living person. When “you” or “your” are used in this statement, we are referring to the relevant individual who is the subject of the personal data. PwC processes personal data for numerous purposes, and the means of collection, lawful basis of processing, use, disclosure, and retention periods for each purpose may differ.
When collecting and using personal data, our policy is to be transparent about why and how we process personal data. To find out more about our specific processing activities, please go to the relevant sections of this statement.
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 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 as appropriate 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 United Kingdom.
We will carry out such transfers only where we have a lawful basis to do so, including to a recipient who is: (i) in a country which provides an adequate level of protection for personal data; or (ii) under an agreement which covers the UK or EU requirements governing contracts for the transfer of personal data to processors outside the UK or EU as appropriate.
Where there is a transfer of EU citizens’ personal data to us, and no other appropriate safeguard or exemption applies, those transfers will be carried out in accordance with the controller to controller model contractual clauses in Commission Decision 2004/915/EC, or the controller to processor model contractual clauses in Commission Decision 2010/87/EU, or any successor model contractual clauses that the European Commission or the UK issues to replace them, as appropriate.
