Introduction

In using this website you agree to your information being used as described in this Privacy Statement.

Information collection

As a visitor, you do not have to submit any personal information in order to use the website. This website collects personal information only if it is specifically and voluntarily provided by visitors. Such information may consist of, but is not limited to, your name, current job title, company address, email address and telephone and fax numbers.

This website may also collect content that you provide, including but not limited to postings on any blogs, forums, wikis and other social media applications and services that we may provide.

We do not usually seek sensitive information (e.g., data relating to race or ethnic origin, religious beliefs, criminal record, physical or mental health or sexual orientation) from visitors. We will, where necessary, obtain your explicit consent to collect and use such information.

Log information, cookies and web beacons

This website collects standard Internet log information including your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring website addresses. To ensure that our website is well managed and to facilitate improved navigation, we or our service provider(s) may also use cookies (small text files stored in a user’s browser) or web beacons (electronic images that allow the website to count visitors who have accessed a particular page and to access certain cookies) to collect aggregate 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.

Information use

At times, you may choose to register or create a user profile on this site e.g., to gain access to specific content, attend a hosted event, respond to a survey or request communications about specific areas of interest. In such cases, the information you submit may be used to manage your request; to manage our relationship with you; or to customize or improve this website.

We may also use your personal information for marketing purposes, or to send you promotional materials or communications regarding services provided by us or other members of the Deloitte Network that we feel may be of interest to you. We may also contact you to seek feedback on our services or for market or other research purposes. Your personal information may also be used to protect our rights or property and that of our users and, if necessary, to satisfy legal proceedings.

You may at any time request that we discontinue sending you emails or other communications generated in response to your registration on this website.

Disclosing of information to third parties

We may provide your personal information to other members of the Deloitte Network in order to provide you with information that could be of interest to you and conduct market or other research. Personal information may also be disclosed to members of the Deloitte Network and other third parties in order to respond to your requests or inquiries; as part of a corporate transaction (such as a sale, divestiture, merger or acquisition); or where those parties handle information on our behalf.

Although we may provide visitors’ information to service providers that process this information for us, we do not usually share this information with third parties or other parts in the network for secondary or unrelated objectives, unless they have otherwise been introduced during the collection process.

Nevertheless, personal information may be sent across the border to other parts within the network or to third parties for the objectives as described above. All of these disclosures may involve the transfer of personal information to countries or regions without data protection rules similar to those in effect in your area of residence. Nevertheless, in this respect we will always take appropriate measures for any situations in which such transfers of information take place, to ensure such transfers of information are always safeguarded by an “adequate level of protection”.

By providing information through this website, you are consenting to the disclosures described above.

This website may host various blogs, forums, wikis and other social media applications or services that allow you to share content with other users (collectively Social Media Applications). Any personal information or other information that you contribute to any Social Media Application can be read, collected and used by other users of that Social Media Application over whom we have little or no control. Therefore, we are not responsible for any other user’s use, misuse or misappropriation of any personal information or other information that you contribute to any Social Media Application.
