McKinsey Solutions Privacy Statement

This Privacy Statement explains how McKinsey & Company, Inc. United States and its affiliates (collectively, “McKinsey” or “we”) processes personal data to perform benchmarking, research, development or related activities, in connection with certain of our proprietary data- and analytics-driven tools and solutions, including those described at (the “solutions”). This Privacy Statement supplements any notice you may receive from a client to which McKinsey is providing professional services (for instance, your employer), and concerns only McKinsey’s use of information for its own purposes as described in this Privacy Statement.

In connection with the use of McKinsey’s solutions by or on behalf of our clients, we may collect information about our clients’ personnel, either directly from the relevant client or via surveys or questionnaires or other information gathering tools supplied by the client or by McKinsey. This information may include, without limitation, business contact information, identification information such as employee ID, job role and reporting line, demographic and other professional and biographical information such as work history and education, finance-related information such as compensation and benefits, performance ratings, technical information related to client personnel and their systems such as IP address information and account information, and other personal data.

In addition to performing services on behalf of McKinsey clients, where agreed with our clients we may compile some of the information collected via the solutions into our own benchmarking databases, analyze the information for research purposes, including within and across clients utilizing the solutions, and/or use the information to further develop and improve solution usage, performance, and functionality. Prior to being retained for this purpose, the information will be stripped of any unique identifiers that may have been collected as part of providing the solution (for example, name or email address), and McKinsey will not seek to identify or re-identify individuals with such information in connection with any such activities.

McKinsey uses this information on the basis of our legitimate interests for the purposes of benchmarking, research and/or development in connection with solutions, as described in this Privacy Statement. Our clients are not granted direct access to any of this information constituting your personal data, and the information will only be shared externally where permitted by applicable law (for example, with our service providers, with your consent, or in the event of the sale or transfer of the relevant McKinsey affiliate).

McKinsey is a global organization, and so information collected via the solutions may be transferred to our affiliates worldwide, including to countries which may have different data protection laws than those in your country of residence. McKinsey will implement safeguards to protect your information across McKinsey’s global operations.
