This Privacy Statement applies only to Deloitte in Lao PDR (“we”, “us” or “our”), which includes Deloitte (Lao) Sole Company Limited and its related entities in Lao PDR.
What does this Privacy Statement cover?
We are a privacy conscious global organisation. This Privacy Statement explains how we collect, use, store and disclose and transfer personal information when you use “this Website” or provide personal information to us through “this Website”.
When we refer to “this Website”, we are referring to specific webpages associated with Deloitte Lao PDR. This includes:

Are all areas of this Website covered by this Privacy Statement?
Certain areas of this Website may have separate privacy statements that apply to personal information collected via those pages (e.g., recruitment). A separate statement may be necessary because of the nature of the personal information being collected (for example, information collected during the recruitment process) and to provide additional detail about how we handle information collected via those pages.
What about the privacy policies of other Deloitte network firms?
The Deloitte member firms, and their related entities, are located all over the world and are subject to the privacy laws of the particular country or countries in which they operate. As a result, other entities within the Deloitte Network may have their own privacy statement governing the handling of any personal information they collect. Importantly, the websites of other Deloitte member firms or their related entities, as well as other websites that may be linked to this Website, are not governed by this Privacy Statement.
We encourage visitors to review each of these other website's privacy statements before disclosing any personal information.
