Subject to applicable law, California residents have the following rights:
- Right to Know: You have the right to submit a verifiable request for copies of specific pieces of your personal information and for information about Company’s collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information. Please note that the CPRA’s right to obtain “specific pieces” does not grant a right to the whole of any document that contains personal information, but only to discrete items of personal information. Moreover, California residents generally just have a right to know categories, for example, categories of external recipients to which personal information is disclosed, but not the individual recipients.
- Right to Delete: You have the right to submit a verifiable request for the deletion of personal information that you have provided to Company.
- Right to Correct: You have the right to submit a verifiable request for the correction of inaccurate personal information maintained by Company, taking into account the nature of the personal information and the purposes of processing the personal information.

- Call (877) 516-3385
- Or you via Skanska Online Data Privacy Inquiry Form
c) How We Will Verify Your Request
If you submit a request through an adequately secure password-protected account that you created before the date of your request, we will use the authentication mechanisms in the account to verify your identity. Otherwise, we match personal data that you provide us against personal data we maintain in our files. The more risk entailed by the request (e.g., a request for specific pieces of personal data), the more items of personal data we may request to verify you. If we cannot verify your identity to a sufficient level of certainty to respond securely to your request, we will let you know promptly and explain why we cannot verify your identity.
d) Authorized Agents
If an authorized agent submits a request to know, correct, or delete on your behalf, the authorized agent must submit with the request either (a) a power of attorney that is valid under California law, or (b) document signed by you that authorizes the authorized agent to submit the request on your behalf. In addition, we may ask you to follow the applicable process described above for verifying your identity. You can obtain an “Authorized Agent Designation” form by contacting us at .
