Processing of personal data

Your privacy is important to us, and we strive for a high level of protection in all processing of personal data. Within the UK, the Data Protection regulations apply.

In accordance with applicable data protection legislation, Skanska is the data controller for the processing of this data because it determines the why and how the data is processed. If you have any questions about this information, or if you wish to exercise any of your rights as set out below, please contact Skanska via the contact details listed under Contact information below.

Collection and processing of personal data

The term 'personal data' refers to such information which, directly or indirectly, may refer to you as an individual. Examples of such data are name, image, personal ID number, contact details, selections made, behaviour or IP address. Personal data processing refers to any action that we or a third party that we have engaged take with the personal data, such as collection, registration and storage.

Personal data may only be processed for specified and explicitly stated purposes and may not be subsequently processed for any purpose that goes beyond these purposes.

At Skanska, we process personal data that you have given us for the purposes of responding to enquires, administering agreements with you, as well as providing information and services in connection with such inquiries and agreements.

Your personal data may also be used for marketing and follow up as well as for our sales and product development with the aim of improving our products and services. If you do not wish to receive marketing and/or any offers, please contact us via the contact details listed under Contact information below.

When you visit our offices or sites, all visitors are required to sign in and out of the location, therefore your name and business details will be collected by our reception team or a digital visitor management system depending on the location. CCTV systems are also in operation at our offices and sites. 

Finally, personal data is also processed for statistical purposes to see how users use the website and to analyse search behaviour, as well as to display content customised for you. Such data is, however, only processed in aggregated form or in a form that cannot identify you as an individual. Data is also processed indirectly in connection with the development, testing and administration of the IT systems underlying our website.

When using features on our website that allow you to post information or other material on it, please note that such information may also contain personal data. If your information contains data about other individuals, you may only post such data which you have received their consent to provide.

Legal basis for processing and storage period

Skanska processes your personal data when necessary for the performance of an agreement with you, to manage a business relationship or respond to enquires/requests. Skanska also processes personal data for other legitimate and justifiable reasons, such as maintaining secure and safe working environments, an interest in marketing ourselves to visitors to our website or an interest in developing our website or our products and/or services and complying with legal obligations. If we were to process your personal data for any purpose which, according to applicable legislation, requires your consent, we will obtain your consent before commencing with such processing.

The data we collect in accordance with the above is deleted when the purposes of the processing have been completed.

Security for the protection of personal data

Skanska safeguards your personal data with a high level of security and has to this end taken appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data from unauthorised access, amendment, dissemination or destruction.

Restrictions on the disclosure of personal data

We may appoint external partners to perform tasks on our behalf, such as providing IT services or helping with marketing, administration of press releases, data analysis or statistics. The performance of these services may mean that our partners, both within and outside the UK, are able to gain access to your personal data. Companies that process personal data on our behalf must always sign an agreement with us so that we are able to ensure a high level of protection of your personal data even with our partners.

Special safeguards are taken regarding partners outside the UK, such as signing agreements that include the International Data Transfer Agreement for data transfers adopted by the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) and which are available on the ICO’s website.

Skanska may also disclose your personal data to third parties, for example the police or other public authorities, if it concerns criminal investigations or if we are otherwise required to disclose such data by law or public authority decision. Skanska will not disclose your personal data to any extent other than described in this section.

Additional information for recruitment applicants

When applying for a role you will share a range of recruitment related personal data with Skanska. Your personal data may be shared with us directly by you, or via a third party such as your recruitment agency, to enable the recruitment process. Candidate profiles on our recruitment system will be removed after one year of inactivity. Successful candidates will have selected recruitment data transferred to their employee personnel file which will be retained in line with our retention policy. Employees should refer to the Employee Privacy Notice for more information.  

External links

This information about processing of personal data applies to data about you that Skanska processes within the scope of our website. Our website may sometimes contain links to external websites or services that we do not control. If you follow a link to an external website, you are encouraged to review the principles for processing of personal data and information about cookies that apply to the website in question.

Your rights and the right to lodge a complaint

In accordance with data protection legislation, you have the right to request access to the personal data which are processed about you. You also have the right to request rectification of your personal data, to request that we cease processing (withdrawing consent) and/or to request deletion of your personal data, to request that the processing of your personal data is limited, to exercise your right to data portability and to object to the personal data processing.  These rights are not absolute, and restrictions may apply.
