GLOBAL ONLINE PRIVACY POLICY

 

This Privacy Policy explains how Quanta Services and its affiliates (“we”) collect, use, disclose, and secure personal information through our website and/or any social media page we maintain that contains a link to this Privacy Policy (“Website”). As used in this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. See our EEA Privacy Policy Provisions for EEA data controllers and additional information applicable to website visitors in the European Economic Area.

 

INFORMATION COLLECTION AND PROCESSING

We collect and process personal information for our internal and Website-related purposes.

Contact submissions. When you use a Website contact form, we collect the information you submit, such as your name, email address, title, company name, and any message. We process this information to evaluate and respond to your request, and we may also use the information to improve our Website or other aspects of our products and services.

Email subscriptions. When you subscribe to receive email messages from us, we collect your name, email address, and any related details you submit. We use that information to send you email messages containing news and other updates relevant to our business, such as information about events, our work, pertinent industry developments, SEC filings, and press releases.

Job applications. Job application information may be collected by us directly, or job application information may be collected on our behalf by our contracted third-party administrator(s) for applicant tracking purposes. For example, we currently contract with iCIMS, Inc., 101 Crawfords Corner Road, Suite 3-100, Holmdel, NJ 07733 USA and Workable Software Limited, 535 Mission St, Suite 1567, 14th floor, San Francisco, CA 94105 USA. These third-party administrators are permitted to process the information you provide only for purposes of providing services to us. We process the information to review your job application and for other employment-related purposes consistent with applicable law, including to contact you regarding your application and/or to contact you about other job openings that we believe may be of interest to you.

Communications. We receive information generated or received through your communications with us.  For example, we may receive your name, email address, address, telephone number, job position, and other work-related contact information, as well as the content of your communications with us and/or interactions with our pages on social media. We process this information to respond, and in the course of our normal business operations.

Social media. If you post information on our pages on social media, we collect that information as well as associated details such as your social media username. We may use the information to respond, and in the course of our normal business operations. Note that the third-party operators of social media websites also receive such information, and their use of your personal information is governed by their own privacy policies.

Automatic data collection: Cookies and related technologies. When you visit our webpages (other than social media pages), we and our third-party partners, such as content feeds (e.g., Twitter, Vimeo, and YouTube), Google Maps, and analytics providers including Google Analytics, collect information by automated means, such as the use of cookies, web beacons, and web server logs. The information collected in this manner includes IP address, browser characteristics, device IDs and characteristics, operating system version, language preferences, referring URLs, and information about the usage of our Website and emails. We may process this information to determine how many users have visited particular webpages, viewed particular videos, or opened messages or alerts, and we may also use such information to improve the performance of the Website and to prevent fraud. In some cases, our third-party partners may process information collected by such cookies. Please see our Cookie Policy for more details. With respect to any social media pages that we may use, please see the privacy policies and any cookie policies of the applicable social media providers as to their automatic data collection practices.

As indicated above, we, like many other website operators, currently use Google Analytics to collect and process certain Website usage data. To learn more about Google Analytics and how to opt out, please visit www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.

Our third-party partners may collect and combine information collected on the Website with other information about your online activities over time, on other devices, and on other websites or apps, if those websites and apps use or share data with the same partners. You may be able to change a web browser’s settings to block and delete cookies when you access the Website through that web browser. However, if you do that, the Website may not work properly; also, we will still receive basic information (such as last URL visited) when you navigate to the Website. Note that the Website does not respond to browser do-not-track signals.

We do not rent, sell, or share “personal information” as defined by California Civil Code §1798.83 about you that we collect on the Website with other people or unaffiliated companies for their direct marketing purposes.

 

INFORMATION SHARING

Affiliates. We share information, including personal information, with our affiliates in the Quanta Services family of companies, and any successors thereto.

Vendors and service providers. We share information, including personal information, with vendors and service providers that process such information to perform services for us in connection with the Website or our other business operations.

Legal and similar disclosures. We may share personal information if we believe doing so is required or appropriate to: comply with legal requirements and law enforcement requests (such as a court order or subpoena); comply with legal process (such as discovery); or protect your, our, or others’ rights, property, or safety.

Merger, sale, or other asset transfers. If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, financing due diligence, reorganization, bankruptcy, receivership, sale of company assets, or transition of service to another provider, your personal information may be shared under an obligation of confidentiality in connection with the negotiation of such transaction, and your personal information may be sold or transferred as part of such a transaction.

 

INFORMATION SECURITY

We strive to process your information securely, in accordance with this Privacy Policy, and in accordance with information security requirements imposed by applicable law. We cannot, however, be responsible for Internet communications that are inherently not completely secure.

 

INTERNATIONAL DATA TRANSFERS

You understand that we may transfer your personal information to the United States and around the world, to the extent permissible under applicable law. By providing your information and through your use of the Website, and to the extent permissible under applicable law, you consent to such international data transfers and processing in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable law. Website visitors located in the EEA should refer to our EEA Privacy Policy Provisions for additional information.

 

LINKS TO THIRD PARTY WEBSITES

The Website may contain links to third-party websites. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of such other websites, and we are not responsible for the actions and privacy policies of the third parties that operate or interact with those websites.

 

UPDATE YOUR INFORMATION OR POSE A QUESTION OR SUGGESTION

If you have questions about this Privacy Policy, or if you would like to request that we update or correct any information that you have provided to us, please send an email to QuantaLCE@quantaservices.com.

 

POSTING OF A REVISED PRIVACY POLICY

We may make changes to this Privacy Policy from time to time, and the revised version will be effective when it is posted and will apply to personal information received after that date. If we make any material changes, we will provide notice of such changes on the pertinent Website for a reasonable period of time (which we estimate will be approximately two weeks). We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy periodically, especially if you don’t visit the Website regularly.

3. Information Sharing and Transfers

In addition to the details provided in the Information Sharing section of the main text of our Global Privacy Policy:

  • We share personal information with our affiliates as necessary in preparation for or performance of an employment contract, for compliance with a legal obligation, or for the purposes of our legitimate interest in facilitating efficient and productive internal processes (such as executive functions, accounting functions, human resources and benefits functions, tax management functions, procurement services, marketing, and legal). To the extent that any personal information is transferred outside the EEA to a country as to which there is no adequacy decision by the European Commission, such transfers are made pursuant to intercompany agreements to abide by the applicable EU Standard Contract Clauses.
  • We share personal information with vendors and service providers based on our legitimate interests to provide quality goods and services and to maintain, improve, and grow our business and our workforce. To the extent that any personal information is transferred outside the EEA to a country as to which there is no adequacy decision by the European Commission, we will ensure an adequate level of data protection through appropriate safeguards, e.g., EU Standard Contract Clauses, EU-US Privacy Shield Framework, or Binding Corporate Rule certification. If you would like further information regarding the applicable safeguard(s) used for such data transfers in connection with any personal information that we maintain about you, please contact us as set forth in Section 1 above and specify the category of vendor or service provider or the type of personal information as to which you seek such further information.

4. How long we process personal information

As a general matter, we will delete or anonymize your personal information when it is no longer necessary to process the data for the purpose(s) for which it was collected. When personal information needs to be retained, we apply appropriate security controls to prevent the unauthorized accessing, use, or processing of the data and take appropriate measures to prevent accidental loss, destruction, or damage to the data. We conduct periodic reviews to ensure that personal information is securely deleted consistent with our policies and applicable law.

Note that we may retain the personal information for a prolonged period of time for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes, or statistical purposes, including if retention of the personal information is necessary to fulfil legal obligations (including under legislation or regulations, to defend or assert legal claims, for fraud prevention, or for litigation hold purposes). In addition, we may delete personal information if a data subject appropriately invokes the right to be forgotten as to such personal information.

 

Your Rights as a data subject

As a data subject in the EEA you have certain rights in relation to our processing of your personal information:

  • Right to information. We will provide you with information about how we process your personal information. The purpose of our Global Privacy Policy (including these EEA Privacy Policy Provisions) is to fulfil this obligation.
  • Right to access. You may request that we confirm whether we process personal information concerning you, and if we do process such information, to give you access to such information and more detailed information about the associated processing activity.
  • Right to data portability. If personal information processing is carried out by automated means and the legal basis for the processing activity is consent or performance of a contract, you may be entitled to request that we provide you with a subset of your personal information in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format. In certain circumstances, you may also ask us to send the subset of your personal information directly to another data controller (e.g., another company).
  • Right to rectification. We seek to ensure that the personal information we are processing is accurate and up-to-date. If you discover that the personal information we process about you is inaccurate or incomplete, you may ask us to rectify or complete the personal information.
  • Right to erasure. You may request that we delete your personal information in the following situations:
    • the processing is based on your consent and this consent is withdrawn (and there is no other legal basis for the processing);
    • you object to the processing and there are no overriding legitimate interests for continuing the processing;
    • the personal information was unlawfully processed; or
    • the personal information has to be erased in order to comply with a legal obligation.

The right of erasure does not apply if further retention of the personal information in question is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation (e.g., bookkeeping obligations), or for the establishment, exercise, or defence of legal claims.

  • Right to restriction. You may request that we (temporarily) restrict the processing of your personal information in certain situations – e.g., if you contest the accuracy of your personal information which we process or you are of the opinion that we do not have a sufficient legitimate interest for a processing activity.
  • Right to objection. In certain circumstances (e.g., where the legal basis for processing is a legitimate interest or if we are performing direct marketing), you may object to continued processing for those purposes. If you do so, we will re-evaluate our legitimate business interests and your data protection interests. We will only continue the processing activity if (i) there are compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or (ii) the processing is necessary to establish, enforce or defend legal claims.
  • Right to lodge a complaint. We prefer to resolve any data protection concerns directly with you. However, if you are of the opinion that we do not comply with the data protection obligations set forth in the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to submit a complaint with a supervisory authority in the EEA country where you reside, work, or suspect an infringement has occured.

If you would like to assert your rights as a data subject or have questions concerning our processing activities, please contact us as set forth in Section 1 above. For additional information from the European Commission concerning data protection and your rights, see: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/reform/rights-citizens_en.
