To be able to tailor our website to provide you with a more personalized experience and to ensure that the communication we send to you are as relevant as possible we do basic profiling where we match your activity on our homepage to your marketing preferences if you accept cookies and sign up to receive communication from us. Please note that you have the right to object to the profiling but this would result in us not being able to personalize our communication to you. To object to the profiling you have to manage your cookie preferences and unsubscribe from our email communication, as it is not possible for us to send these emails without tracking enabled. 

In connection with one or more purposes outlined in section 1, your personal data may be disclosed to and shared with the following recipients: Our client; public authorities; our professional advisors (e.g. auditor and legal advisors); service providers; IT-providers including cloud services; insurance and pension companies (if part of our services to our client) and other Deloitte entities.

We may also need to disclose your personal data to authorities and/or to other third parties if required to do so by law, a regulator or during legal proceedings.

Please note that some of the recipients of your personal data referenced above may be based in countries outside of the European Union whose laws may not provide the same level of data protection. In such cases, we will ensure that there are adequate safeguards in place through EU’s standard contractual clauses to protect your personal data that comply with our legal obligations.

We will hold your personal data on our systems for the longest of the following periods:

  • as long as is necessary for the relevant activity or services;
  • any retention period that is required by law (for example in audit, we have a legal obligation to retain data for 10 years after the end of the calendar year in which the audit was concluded); and
  • the end of the period in which litigation or investigations might arise in respect of the services.

We use a range of physical, electronic and managerial measures to ensure that we keep your personal data secure, accurate and up to date. These measures include:

  • education and training to relevant staff to ensure they are aware of our privacy obligations when handling personal data; 
  • administrative and technical controls to restrict access to personal data on a ‘need to know’ basis;
  • technological security measures, including fire walls, encryption and anti-virus software; and
  • physical security measures, such as staff security passes to access our premises.

Although we use appropriate security measures once we have received your personal data, the transmission of data over the internet (including by e-mail) is never completely secure. We endeavor to protect personal data, but we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to us or by us.

In case of a data breach, we have special measures set to limit the risk of information dissemination. We will of course follow the guidelines and requirements specified by the regulatory authority for incident reporting.
