In addition to the information you choose to disclose to us, we collect your name, email address, employment details such as company, title, role and position, your IP address, data from social media if publicly available and details on how you use our products and services, and details on how you interact with us. We collect this information for the following purposes:

  • to manage and improve our Website
  • to tailor the content of our Website to provide you with a more personalised experience and draw your attention to information about our products and services that may be of interest to you, e.g. events or newsletters
  • to manage and respond to any request you submit through our Website including your enrolment to a Deloitte event
  • to improve your experience on our Website based on the preferences you yourself define on and your behaviour on our Website, e.g. which areas of our services you show interest in.
  • to facilitate a Deloitte event, including planning and evaluation of the event.
In connection with Deloitte’s processing of your personal data for the above purposes, profiling may take place, for example to tailor the content of our Website to provide you with a more personalised experience and to improve your experience on our Website based on the preferences you yourself define. Please be informed that you are entitled to object to the profiling. In such case, we may not be able to provide you with our services. Please see relevant contact details in clause 9.

We collect your personal data from you directly, and indirectly when you use our Website. For example, to improve your experience, when you use our Website and to ensure that it is functioning effectively, we (or our service providers) may use cookies (small text files stored in a user’s browser) and Web beacons, which may collect personal data. Additional information on how we use cookies and other tracking technologies and how you can control these, can be found in our cookie notice. Furthermore, we may collect data from your profiles on social media, provided that they are publicly available.

Please note that the other country and regional websites available within are provided by other entities within the Deloitte Network. Such websites, as well as other websites that may be linked to, are not governed by this privacy notice. We encourage you to review the privacy statements on these other websites, before disclosing any personal information.

In most situations Deloitte will be the controller of the data collected. Thus, we are required by law to set out in this privacy notice the legal grounds on which we rely in order to process your personal data.

We collect and process your data based on the following articles of GDPR: 

  • Art. 6 paragraph 1 (a) your consent to our collection and disclosure of your data
  • Art. 6 paragraph 1 (b) performance of a contract with you
  • Art. 6 paragraph 1 (c) legal obligation to which Deloitte is subject, and
  • Art. 6 paragraph 1 (f) the legitimate interests of Deloitte.

The legitimate interests pursued by Deloitte include the following purposes: Provision of effective delivery of our services to you; coordination of marketing activities towards registered persons in our CRM system, including sending and tracking invitations for events and newsletters; provision and administration of our website; compliance with legal and regulatory obligations, to which we are subject; compliance with internal policies and documentation requirements. These purposes are necessary for the effective operation of our business and require collection and processing of your personal data.

In connection with one or more purposes outlined above, your personal data may be disclosed to and shared with the following recipients: Public authorities, our professional advisors (e.g. auditor and legal advisors), service providers; event speakers; participants in Deloitte events (elaboration of list of participants); IT-providers including cloud services providers; and other Deloitte entities.

If you do not want your name, title or any employment details to be included in a list of participants to be disclosed to speakers and other participants to a Deloitte event, for which you have signed up, please contact Deloitte.

Our Website hosts various blogs, forums, wikis and other social media applications or services that allow you to share content with other users (collectively “Social Media Applications”). Importantly, any personal information that you contribute to these Social Media Applications can be read, collected and used by other users of the application. We have little or no control over these other users and, therefore, we cannot guarantee that any information that you contribute to any Social Media Applications will be handled in accordance with this privacy notice.  

Transfer of personal data to data processors 
We may transfer your personal data to other Deloitte entities. We may also transfer your data to IT providers, including cloud service providers, or to external service providers, who process and/or store the personal data on our behalf.

Transfer of personal data to recipients in countries outside the EU/EEA 
We may transfer your personal data to recipients located in countries outside the EU/EEA for the purposes listed in section 1. In such case, the legal basis for the international transfer will be EU’s Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC), or other applicable legal basis. 

We will hold your personal data on our systems for the longest of the following periods: (i) as long as is necessary for the relevant activity or services; or (ii) any retention period that is required by law. In relation to our newsletter, you may require deletion of your personal data in our systems at any time by applying the opt-out facility on k.

Subject to the conditions set out in the applicable data protection legislation, you have the following rights:

  • The right to request access to your personal data
  • The right to rectification of your personal data
  • The right to erasure of your personal data
  • The right to restriction of processing of your personal data
  • The right to data portability
  • The right to objection to the processing of your personal data
