The PricewaterhouseCoopers Privacy Mission


Generally, PricewaterhouseCoopers only collects identifiable information that is specifically and voluntarily provided by a visitor to our site. A visitor to our site may choose to provide this information to register for certain areas of the site, apply for a job, or order a publication. When a visitor provides this type of identifiable information to us, we use it solely for the purposes for which it was provided. Our policy is not to share personally identifiable information with third parties, unless required by law, or unless explicitly requested by a visitor. We recognise that your information is valuable and we take all reasonable measures to protect your information while it is in our care. We use small text files called cookies to improve the overall site experience, however, these are not used to track individual visitors to our site. The use of cookies is now standard operating procedure for most Web sites, however if you are uncomfortable with the use of cookies, most browsers now permit users to opt-out of receiving them. Our full privacy policy is accessible through the left-hand navigation bar. The policy clearly states our commitment to creating a safe and enjoyable online experience for visitors to our site.

PricewaterhouseCoopers is a global leader in the development and implementation of privacy assurance and third party verification services. Our leadership is established not only by the range of experience we have in the development and assurance of privacy policies, but also by our own example. Because our web site has areas where individuals can provide identifying information, we have developed our PricewaterhouseCoopers Privacy Statement to inform web site visitors of our policies and practices regarding such information.

Our commitment to the privacy protection of consumers both online and offline is continued for example, through our involvement in the following US privacy initiatives:

  • PricewaterhouseCoopers Privacy Audits and e-Assurance
  • Online Privacy Alliance
  • TRUSTe
  • Privacy and American Business
  • BBBOnline
  • AICPA's CPA WebTrust

PricewaterhouseCoopers encourages all visitors to review these web seal initiatives, investigate the programs, and actively seek a web seal in all sites that you visit and provide personally identifiable information.
