Processing of business contact data
In line with the requirements of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation), hereinafter referred to as "GDPR", we would like to inform you that Deloitte entities in Poland (whose details are available here) process personal data of business nature concerning the contact persons and representatives of prospective, current and former Clients, as well as of other contractors of Deloitte Poland, including specifically the first name, surname, identification and contact data of the entity represented, business phone number, business e-mail address, position/ role within the structure of the represented entity as well as information about the existing relations and contacts with Deloitte Poland ("business contact data”).
In case the business contact data is not collected directly from the individual concerned (e.g. if a representative of Deloitte Poland has received a business card with such data), they could have been provided by the entity represented or obtained from publicly available sources, such as public records and registers (e.g. National Court Register).
Business contact data are processed primarily for the purposes of maintaining and developing business relationships with the entity represented by the given individual and for other purposes which constitute the legitimate interests of Deloitte Poland, pursuant to Article 6.1(f) of GDPR (such as taking the necessary activities to conclude or to perform the contract with the entity represented by the given individual, internal control and risk management, internal reporting, evaluation and optimisation of service quality within the Deloitte Network as well as assessment and development of sales opportunities), and for the purposes of fulfilling legal and regulatory duties imposed on Deloitte entities in Poland in connection with their business activity (inter alia, the purposes of issuing invoices, documenting service performance, proper identification of the represented entity, as well as prevention of fraud and corruption).
Deloitte Poland can also process business contact data on the basis of the consent granted separately by the given individual (e.g. to receive marketing materials ordered from Deloitte). In such situations, the business contact data provided when giving consent are processed on the basis of that consent, within the scope and for the purpose indicated therein.
Business contact data will be processed for a period required to fulfil the purposes described above (e.g. conclusion and delivery of the contract between Deloitte Poland and the entity represented by the individual - for a period until the end of the procedure of conclusion or delivery of the contract, and thereafter for a period and to the extent required by the regulations of the law or for the exercise of legitimate interests of a controller by Deloitte Poland).
Deloitte entities in Poland (other than the one that originally obtained the business contact data), other entities of the Deloitte Network, their personnel and suppliers of support services, including IT services, may become the recipients of the personal data. Additional information about personal data processing within Deloitte CE and their due protection can be found here.
In order to exercise your rights as the business contact data subject (in particular, the right to access the data, obtain its copy, the right to rectification or erasure of data, the right to restriction of data processing, and the right to object to data processing), you need to contact the controller using this contact form.
If you believe that the processing of business contact data by Deloitte Poland is in breach of the law, you can submit a complaint to the competent supervisory authority (Prezes Urzędu Ochrony Danych Osobowych).
