1. Notice of Personal Information Collection and Use
Moss Adams collects personal information for various business purposes. You may provide us with personal information, such as your name and contact information, directly or via our service providers by submitting your resume or work history information, subscribing to publications, joining our mailing lists, participating in surveys, registering for events (e.g., webcasts or seminars), requesting access to specific content, submitting requests to meet with Moss Adams representatives, or by submitting requests through our “Contact Us” or “Submit RFP” mailboxes. In some instances, we or our service providers may automatically collect certain types of information using online identification technologies, such as cookies and beacons, when you visit our sites or through the emails we exchange. We may use the personal information you submit through the site to respond to your requests, send you information about our services or events, send you administrative information or notices, advertise our services to you on other sites or social media platforms, provide a more personalized experience, improve our site, and for our internal business purposes. If you no longer wish to receive promotional communications from us, you may request at any time that we discontinue sending you such materials by contacting us using the contact information listed below.
We do not seek “sensitive personal information” or “sensitive data” as defined under applicable privacy law on this website. If you choose to apply for a job through our careers site, we may collect information such as your name, address and other contact information, work and educational experience, licenses and certifications, and other personal information, which may include sensitive personal information. Your decision to submit such information is entirely voluntary. We may use this information to process and evaluate your application for employment and to communicate with you about employment opportunities. We may also retain and use this information to identify, and communicate with you about, future potential employment opportunities with us. If we elect to make an offer of employment, this information may become part of the employee file and may be used for other employment and work-related purposes.
In connection with providing services, we enter into contracts with our clients that describe the scope of services for which information is collected and used. We may obtain your personal information in the course of providing professional services to our clients. A client that provides us with third-party personal information is responsible for obtaining from such third parties the consents that may be required by law or regulation to allow such production. Individuals who engage Moss Adams may need to provide their personal information for us to perform the services requested.
We do not use profiling or make decisions based solely on the automated processing of your personal information. We retain personal information for only so long as necessary for the intended purpose for which it was collected, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law or our document retention policies based on professional standards and best practices. We may also store your name, email address, and other contact information such as company, title and industry in a customer relationship management tool and use it to manage our relationship with you and/or your company.
Moss Adams makes the following disclosures with respect to “consumers,” as defined under applicable privacy law, regarding categories of personal information, categories of sources of personal information, purpose of processing personal information, and categories of third parties to whom personal information may be disclosed:

2. Your Rights and Choices
Applicable laws and regulations provide certain individuals with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section summarizes your rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
2.1 Right to access and data portability
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable request, we will disclose to you:
- The categories of personal information we collected about you
- The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you
- Our business or commercial purpose for collecting that personal information
- The categories of persons to whom we disclose that personal information
- The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called data portability)
2.2 Right to correct or delete
You have the right to request that we correct or delete your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. After we receive and confirm your verifiable request, we will correct or delete (and direct our service providers to correct or delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your correction or deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:
- Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you
- Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities
- Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality
- Exercise free speech, ensure the ability of other individuals to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law
- Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information's deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research's achievement, if you previously provided informed consent
- Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with expectations based on your relationship with us
- Comply with legal and regulatory obligations
- Make other internal and lawful uses of the information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it
2.3 Exercising your rights to access, correct, or delete
To exercise the access, data portability, correction, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable request to us one of the following ways:
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable request related to your personal information.
You may only make a verifiable request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative of such person
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
2.4 Response timing and format and appeal
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable request within 45 days of receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily usable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
You may appeal our decision with regard to your request by contacting us 1-844-962-1482, or submitting an appeal here.
2.5 Sales of personal data
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights. Unless permitted by law, we will not engage in any of the following activities in response to your exercise of rights described in this section:
- Deny you goods or services
- Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties
- Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services
- Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services
3. Disclosures and Transfers
We may disclose personal information to our affiliated companies, professional advisors, insurers, benefit providers, legal or regulatory authorities, state or national boards of accountancy, and contractors and various third party service providers who are engaged to provide support of our internal operations or assistance with the services we provide. For example, we engage service providers to assist with IT administrative support services, such as identity management, security, hosting, back-up, and data analysis, and for support services related to storage and secure disposal of hard copy files. Such entities may be located within or outside the United States. We require all service providers to protect the information we entrust to them and to use such information only for specified business purposes.
4. Data Security
The security of your personal information is very important to us. We use reasonable and appropriate safeguards to protect your information, which include physical (e.g., secure office entry), technical (e.g., password protection, network firewalls, laptop encryption, authentication mechanisms), and administrative (e.g., confidentiality agreements, training, procedures that limit access to and use of data) measures. However, no method of transferring data over the internet or storing electronic data is entirely secure, so while we strive to use reasonable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee security against all threats.
5. International Users
If you are visiting the website from outside the United States, please be aware that Moss Adams is based in the United States, and the information we obtain through the website will be transferred to, processed in, and stored on our servers in the United States and other countries where our service providers operate. The data protection laws and regulations applicable to your personal information transferred to the United States and such other countries may be different from the laws in your country.
We understand the importance of protecting children’s online privacy. Our sites are not directed to children under the age of 13, and Moss Adams will never knowingly collect or maintain personal information through our sites from anyone under the age of 13. If we learn that we have received information directly from a child who is under the age of 13, we will delete such information as soon as possible.
