PwC is the brand under which the member firms of PricewaterhouseCoopers International Limited operate and provide professional services. Together, these firms form the PwC network.

The PwC network and each of the individual PwC firms are strongly committed to protecting the privacy of personal data that they maintain about PwC clients, employees and other individuals. As part of this commitment to privacy, PwC regularly reviews its data protection practices to comply with applicable laws, industry standards and best practices. As a result, of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which came into effect on 25 May 2018, and due to other territorial regulations impacting privacy, a comprehensive global programme -- the Network Data Protection Programme or NDPP -- has been established to provide a basis for, and a consistent approach to, data protection compliance across the PwC network and within each member firm.

An overarching goal of the NDPP is to promote a vision, practices and standards across the PwC network that achieve a robust level of protection and appropriate use of the personal data of PwC member firms’ people, clients, vendors and other stakeholders. All member firms are now in the process of implementing the requirements of the NDPP through their own individual firm programs, building upon existing confidentiality and security processes and standards. These new programme requirements are extensive and cover multiple functional areas and aspects of our business, all in pursuit of accountability and transparency in how PwC collects, processes, protects and disposes of personal data.
