Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy explains how Quanta Services and/or its affiliate (“we”) collects, uses, discloses, and secures personal information through our website or any social media page we maintain that contains a link to this Privacy Policy (“Website”) and through other interactions with individuals who reach out to us directly by email or telephone. As used in this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means information that identifies, relates to, or describes an identified or identifiable natural person.

California residents should also see the Supplemental California Privacy Notice and Rights section below. Website visitors in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) should review our EEA Privacy Policy Provisions for EEA data controllers and additional information applicable to them.

 

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 personal information from you to evaluate and respond to your request, and we may also use the information to improve our Website or other aspects of our services. For example, we may collect the following personal information from you:

  • personal identifiers, such as your name, email address, and telephone number;
  • professional or business-related information, such as your job title and company name; and
  • message content.

Email subscriptions. When you subscribe to receive email messages from us, we collect personal identifiers (such as your name and email address) and any related details you submit through the Website. We use that information to send you email messages containing news and other updates relevant to our business.

Job applications. Job application information may be collected by us directly through a Website or by email, or job application information may be collected on our behalf by our contracted third-party administrator(s) for applicant tracking purposes and by background check providers. For example, we currently contract with iCIMS, Inc., Newton Software, and Industry People Group d/b/a BirdDog HR. 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 through your communications with us by email or phone, and we process this information to respond to you and in the normal course of our business operations. For example, we may receive the following personal information from you:

  • personal identifiers, such as your name, email address, and telephone number;
  • professional or business-related information, such as your job title and company name; and
  • message content.

Social media. If you post information on our webpage on a social media platform, we may use the information to respond, to promote our business and services, and in the normal course of our business operations. We may collect personal identifiers, such as your social media username, and other personal characteristics that you have made publicly available on the social media website. 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 websites , we and our third-party partners, such as content feed providers (e.g., Twitter, Vimeo, and YouTube), Google Maps, and analytics providers including Google Analytics, collect information by automated means. Such means include the use of cookies, web beacons, and web server logs.

We may use such technologies to collect personal identifiers (such as your IP address), information about your device (such as your browser characteristics, device IDs and characteristics, operating system version, and language preferences) and information concerning your usage of our Website, (including the link you used to reach a given webpage). We use 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, to improve our marketing activities, and to enforce our website service terms and prevent malicious conduct.

In some cases, our third-party partners may process information collected by cookies and related technologies that we permit them to use on the Website. 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 automated 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/.

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.

 

INFORMATION SHARING

We may share any of the categories of personal information listed above for our business and commercial purposes as described below.

Affiliates. We share information, including personal information, with our affiliates in the Quanta Services family of companies, and any successors thereto in the normal course of our business operations, such as to communicate with you and to promote and provide our services. In this regard, personal information may be shared with one of our affiliates for use in providing a service to us.

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 with law enforcement, the courts, our advisors, attorneys, and others who participate in the legal process, 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 with the other parties and advisors involved 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 to the other parties.

 

DO-NOT-SELL DISCLOSURE

We do not sell your personal information for money or other consideration. We also 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.

The laws of some states suggest that we should provide you with the opportunity to opt-out of future “selling” (as defined by those laws) of personal information, even though we do not currently intend to sell your personal information. You may opt-out here.

 

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.

 

PRIVACY RIGHTS

Certain jurisdictions have specific legal requirements and grant privacy rights with respect to personal information, and we will comply with restrictions and any requests you submit as required by applicable law. For example, you may have the right to review, correct, and delete personal information we have about you, or to consent or withdraw consent to certain uses or sharing of personal information. If you are a California resident, see our California Privacy Notice and Rights section below, and if you are located in the EEA, see our EEA Privacy Policy Provisions below for additional information as to how to exercise rights under the laws of those jurisdictions. If you are located outside those jurisdictions and seek to exercise your rights under the law of another jurisdiction, please contact us by emailing here.

Please note that, when you make a request, we may require that you provide information and follow procedures so that we can verify your identity (and the applicable jurisdiction). The verification steps we take may differ depending on your jurisdiction and the request. Where possible, we will attempt to match the information that you provide in your request to information we already have on file to verify your identity. If we are able to verify your request, we will process it. If we cannot verify your request, we may ask you for additional information to help us do so.

We will respond to your request within the time period required by applicable law. However, we may not always be able or required to comply with your request, in whole or in part, and we will notify you in that event.

 

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.

 

Effective Date: January 1, 2020

 

SUPPLEMENTAL CALIFORNIA PRIVACY NOTICE AND RIGHTS

This Supplemental California Privacy Notice and Rights section provides additional information pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), applicable to California consumers whose personal information we collect as described in this Privacy Policy.

A California consumer has the following rights: to request additional information about our data collection, use, disclosure, and sales practices in connection with the consumer’s personal information; to request the specific personal information collected about the consumer during the previous 12 months; and to request the deletion of the personal information we have about the consumer. A California consumer may not be discriminated against for exercising the consumer’s California privacy rights.

Under the CCPA, California consumers may use an authorized agent to make privacy rights requests. We require the authorized agent to provide us with proof of the California consumer’s written permission (for example, a power of attorney) that demonstrates authorization to submit a request for the California consumer. An authorized agent must follow the process described below to make a request, and we will also (a) require the authorized agent to verify the agent’s own identity and (b) confirm the agent’s authority with the California consumer about whom the request was made.

To make a request, you may email us at privacy@quantaservices.com. In most cases, you will be required to provide your name and email address so that we can verify your request, and in some cases additional information may be required.

As stated above, we do not sell personal information, and we have not sold personal information since January 1, 2020, the date the CCPA went into effect.

Please see our Cookie Policy for information about the collection and use of personal information by third-parties who process information collected by cookies and related technologies that we permit them to use on the Website.

California residents who use job application features of the Website should see our California Job Applicant Notice of Collection, which may be posted on the job application webpage(s) and is also available here. Please note that job applicants do not currently have the rights described above under the CCPA.
