PRIVACY STATEMENT
Last revised: February 2013

Introduction

Deloitte LLP and its subsidiaries (the “Deloitte U.S. Entities,” also referred to below as “we,” “us” and “our”) is a privacy conscious organization. This privacy statement explains how we protect visitors’ information gathered via the Web pages of the Deloitte.com website that are designated as “Global>United States” in the upper left hand corner (such Web pages referred to herein as the “Deloitte U.S. Website”). By using the Deloitte U.S. Website you agree to the use of such information in accordance with this privacy statement.  

The Deloitte.com website also includes Web pages of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (“DTTL”), which are designated as “Global,” and Web pages of other DTTL member firms, which are designated as “Global>[Country].” These Web pages are provided by the designated entities and are not the responsibility of the Deloitte U.S. Entities. Such Web pages, as well as other websites that may be linked to the Deloitte U.S. Website, are not governed by this privacy statement. We encourage visitors to review the applicable privacy statements before disclosing any personal information.

This privacy statement may be supplemented or amended from time to time by privacy statements that are specific to certain areas of the Deloitte U.S. Website [(e.g., recruitment). For more detail about the online recruitment process, please review the specific statement governing that area.]

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this privacy statement, please contact webmaster services using the contact us link.

As used in this privacy statement, “Deloitte Network” means DTTL and its member firms and their affiliates and related entities.
