With the following data protection information we inform you about the processing of personal data on the Atlas websites of KPMG as well as about the rights of data subjects.
General data protection information on the processing of personal data within the framework of our general business activities and services (e.g. assessments/events) that can be commissioned via Atlas can be accessed here.
In order to fulfil the purposes listed under the abovementioned regulations, these following personal data may be disclosed:
Legally standardized data protection contracts are agreed with all service providers which we use as processors pursuant to Article 28 EU GDPR and the service providers first undergo an IT security assessment.
Personal data may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) only if there is an appropriate level of data protection within the meaning of Art. 44 et seqq. GDPR.
Each member firm of KPMG International has undertaken to adhere to the minimum standards of data protection. Their main obligations in this regard are contained in the KPMG Data Protection Guidelines and in the contractual clauses on data protection (Inter Firm Data Transfer Agreement – IFDTA) of KPMG International. The IFDTA includes in particular also all modules from the current EU standard contractual clauses (EU Model Clauses), which were published by the European Commission on June 4, 2021, pursuant to Art. 46 (2) lit. c GDPR. The IFDTA obligates the corresponding KPMG member firms around the world to observe these rules in the case of non-EU/EEA data transfers.
Also in the case of KPMG-external service providers (including the usage of cloud services) outside of the EEA, the appropriate level of data protection required pursuant to EU data protection law is ensured by complying with the requirements set forth under Article 45 et seqq. EU GDPR, normally by agreeing standard data protection clauses (EU model clauses) within the meaning of Article 46 (2)(c) EU GDPR.
