California supplementary website privacy notice

This privacy notice for California residents supplements the information contained in our Website privacy notice and applies to visitors to our website. This privacy notice will help you understand the types of personal information we collect, why we need to process your personal information, how we use it, who we share it with and the rights you have over it as a California resident.

Personal information we collect and process

The Website privacy notice already describes the information we collect and the sources of information. This section organizes that information around the personal information categories set out in the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”)

We have collected the following categories of personal information about you:


Name, online identifier, Internet Protocol (IP) address, and email address

Personal information categories listed in the California Customer Records statute (Cal. Civ. Code §1798.80(e))

Name, email address, telephone number, education, employment, location (country)

Internet or other similar network activity

Browsing history, search history, interaction with a website or application, language used, device ID, cookies, pixels

Geolocation data

Data such as IP addresses from which we can determine your general location

Professional or employment-related information

Information relating to your current position (for example, job title, employer and seniority level) and your membership with any professional bodies/institutes

Who we share your personal information with

Mott MacDonald has disclosed the following categories of personal information for a business purpose to the following third parties:

  • We have disclosed your internet or other network activity information to IT support to detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, and to identify and repair website errors.

  • We have disclosed your identifiers and internet or other network activity information to our data analysis providers (for example, Google Analytics and Siteimprove) to maintain and enhance our website and to better understand how you engage with our website.

Please note that we do not sell your personal information as defined under the CCPA.

How long we keep your personal information

We only keep your personal information for as long as is necessary. Here’s what we consider when we establish retention periods:

  • If we need it to respond to your queries or manage our relationship with you. For example, respond to a query you submitted using our online webform.
  • How long we need to retain the information to comply with certain legal obligations. For example: a legal request or obligation including obligations of Mott MacDonald companies; or to comply with applicable law or a legal claim, complaint, litigation or regulatory proceedings.
  • If we need it for other legitimate purposes, such as to promote security, and integrity, or protect our legal rights, property, or assets.

In some instances, and for specific reasons, we’ll keep information for an extended period of time. For example, if it’s needed in relation to a legal claim, complaint, litigation or regulatory proceedings, or for safety, security and integrity purposes.

When your personal information is deleted or destroyed, we ensure that it is safely and permanently disposed of in accordance with relevant California laws and regulations.

Your California rights and choices

The CCPA grants certain rights to California residents. To the extent the CCPA applies to our processing of your personal information, you have the following rights over your personal information:

  • Right to access and request what personal information we have collected, used, and disclosed about you.
  • Right to correct the personal information we hold about you. This enables you to ask us to amend or update any incomplete or inaccurate personal information.
  • Right to request the deletion of personal information about you unless an exception applies. We may deny your request, for example, to detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity or prosecute those responsible for such activities or to comply with a legal obligation.
  • Right to transfer personal information about you to another party. You can ask us to send (or “port”) your personal information to another organization.

You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment if and when you exercise your rights under the CCPA.

Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to your request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.

Authorized Agents

If you are a California resident, only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a request related to your personal information. If you are an authorized agent making a request on behalf of another individual, you must provide us with signed documentation that you are authorized to act on behalf of that individual.

Do not track

We do not respond to browser initiated Do Not Track signals, as we do not track individuals over time and across third-party websites to provide targeted advertising.
