The right to information does not exist, or exists only to a limited extent, if and to the extent that the information would disclose information requiring secrecy, e.g. information subject to professional secrecy.

Right to restrict processing: You have the right to request that PwC restrict the processing of your personal data.

Right to data transferability: You have the right to receive from PwC the data you provide in a structured, common and machine-readable format and the right to have this data transferred to another responsible party. This right exists only if

  • you have provided us with the data on the basis of a consent or on the basis of a contract concluded with you;
  • the processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures.

Right to object to processing: If the processing of your data by PwC is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f) DSGVO, you can object to the processing by PwC at any time.

Description of the data processing on the website and legal basis for the processing

When you visit our website, we collect the data that is technically necessary to display this website. These are the following personal data, which are automatically transmitted to our server by your browser:

These personal data are processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 letter f) DSGVO. The website cannot be accessed and offered to users without the use of this data, there is a legitimate interest in making it technically possible to access and use the website. In addition, the data is stored to technically secure the website. The person responsible has an interest in the security and availability of this website.

The information in the log files is stored for 90 days and then deleted.

During a session between the user and the chatbot, the following data must necessarily be stored to enable functionality:

  • Status of the conversation for analysis and response by the bot.

This data is deleted as soon as the session is terminated.

Once a conversation has been completed, the user is given the option of sending the chat history as a file attachment by e-mail to a PwC employee. The following data is transferred:

  • Chat history of the current session
  • Unique key for caller assignment

This will help you to establish better contact with your PwC advisor.

This website is hosted by a service provider [Microsoft Ireland Operations Limited, One Microsoft Place, South County Business Park, Leopardstown, Dublin 18, Ireland] and the data collected on our website is therefore stored on the service provider’s servers. The servers are located in Germany and in other EU countries.

Data is transferred abroad, but only to countries of the European Union or the European Economic Area.
