We want to gain insight into the current challenges of the transformation of the CFO function and understand the rationale behind the current processes of enterprises. Therefore, we contact our clients of our target and managed accounts. The results of this survey will be published in an aggregated form in the 2021 CFO 4.0 whitepaper and no details concerning individual responses are disclosed.  

BearingPoint collects only the user data that is required to make our survey work. For example, we collect information such as a user’s IP address and operating system and device details to deliver the best possible experience to you regardless of how and  from where you take the survey.  

BearingPoint used an individual token per sent out invitation which is linked to a contact from BearingPoint's CRM contact list. Each token is a unique code which does not reveal any personal information. This token allows us to send individualized emails, categorize unfinished questionnaires, track response rates, and send out reminders if necessary. Surveys with tokens are closed to the public. 

We respect your trust and protect your privacy and we will not share your personal data with any third party. We store all data including individual and company related data until April 2022 (end of study) for operational and evaluation purposes. Thenceforward the data is anonymized and saved in aggregate form from which no personal trace-backs to individuals or companies will be possible anymore.

You have the right to access data relating to you, to be informed about the existence and the extent of data processing, to rectify incorrect personal data as the case may be and to oppose further processing on serious and legitimate grounds.
