How We May Disclose Personal Information
We may disclose your Personal Information for the following reasons and to the following categories of third parties:
We refer to cookies, web beacons (also known as pixel tags and clear GIFs) and other similar technology as “Data Collection Technology.“
A cookie is a small text file that is sent to or accessed from your web browser or your computer’s hard drive. A cookie typically contains the name of the domain (internet location) from which the cookie originated, the “lifetime” of the cookie (when it expires), and a randomly generated unique identifier. A cookie may also contain information about your computer, such as user settings, browsing history and activities conducted while using the Services.
A web beacon (also called a pixel tag or clear GIF) is a piece of computer code that enables us to monitor user activity and website traffic.
To learn more about cookies and web beacons, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
How We Use Data Collection Technology: Data Collection Technology helps us improve your experience of the Services. In particular, we use analytics cookies to compile statistics about the use of the Services, help us analyze technical and navigational information about the Services and detect and prevent fraud. We also may use Data Collection Technology to collect information from the computer or device that you use to access the Services, such as your operating system type, browser type, domain and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone in which your computer or device is located.
Additionally, we use analytics services, such as Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager, which use Data Collection Technology to analyze your use of our Website. For more information on Google’s privacy practices for Google Analytics, please visit https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245. You may prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on our Website by deleting or disabling the relevant cookies. For more information, see Section 5, “Your Choices”.

Cookies and web trackers: Regular cookies generally may be disabled or removed using tools available as part of most commercial browsers, and in some instances blocked in the future by selecting certain settings. The choices available, and the mechanism used, will vary from browser to browser. Some web browsers (including some mobile web browsers) provide settings that allow you to control or reject cookies or alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer or device. You may also be able to reject mobile device identifiers by adjusting the appropriate setting on your mobile device. Such browser settings are typically found in the “options,” “tools” or “preferences” menu of your browser. You may also consult your browser’s “help” menu. For more information, please visit www.allaboutcookies.com.
Please note that tools from commercial browsers may not be effective with regard to Flash cookies (also known as locally shared objects), HTML5 cookies or other tracking technologies. For information on disabling Flash cookies, visit https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/disable-local-shared-objects-flash.html. Please be aware that if you disable or remove these technologies, some parts of our Website may not work and when you revisit our Website your ability to limit browser-based tracking technologies is subject to your browser settings and limitations.
Although you are not required to accept cookies or mobile device identifiers, if you block or reject them, you may not have access to all features available through the Services.
Our Policy on Do Not Track Signals: Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” (“DNT“) or similar feature that signals to websites that a user does not want to have his or her online activity and behavior tracked. If a website that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain Personal Information about the browser’s user. We follow the DNT signals we receive from your browsers.
California residents have the privacy rights listed below with respect to their Personal Information.
California’s “Shine the Light” Law
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits individual California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of certain categories of Personal Information to third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This request may be made no more than once per calendar year. We reserve the right not to respond to requests submitted other than to the email address above, or to the mailing addresses specified at the end of this notice.
California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”)
The CCPA grants California residents additional privacy rights with respect to their Personal Information. Please note that the CCPA provides certain exceptions with respect to the Personal Information of California employees, job applicants, owners, directors, vendors, suppliers and contractors. If you are a McDermottPlus California employee, job applicant, partner or independent contractor or a vendor or supplier of McDermottPlus, you may not have any or all of the privacy rights listed below in connection with Personal Information we have about you in the context of that relationship with you.
The CCPA privacy rights include:
Please note, in response to a request to know, we are prohibited from disclosing your Social Security number, driver’s license number or other government-issued identification number, financial account number, any health insurance or medical identification number, an account password or security questions and answers.
Request to Delete: You have the right to request that we delete the Personal Information that we collect from you. We may deny your request under certain circumstances, such as if we need to comply with our legal obligations or to complete a transaction for which your Personal Information was collected. If we are unable to fulfill your request for deletion, we will let you know the reason why.
Exercising Your Rights Under The CCPA
To make a request to know or request to delete, please contact the Privacy team for McDermott and its affiliates, including McDermottPlus, at 1-888-598-1660 or submit a consumer request at our web portal: https://www.mwe.com/legal/california-privacy-requests/.
Only you or your authorized agent may submit a consumer request. You may submit a consumer request on behalf of your minor child. In order to respond to your consumer request, we will take steps to verify your identity before processing your request. To the extent possible, we will use our existing account authentication practices to verify your identity. Where necessary, we may request additional information about you so that we can verify your identity. Where we did not already hold that information, we will use it only for the purpose of verifying your identity and to process your request. If we cannot verify your identity based on the information provided, we will let you know that we are unable to fulfil your request.
Please note that if we maintain your Personal Information on behalf of a third party, we may need to refer you to that third party in order to respond to your request. If we cannot comply with your request, or with part of your request, we will explain the reasons in our response.
You may use an authorized agent to submit a request to know or a request to delete. When we verify your agent’s request, we may verify both you and your agent’s identity and request a signed document from you that authorizes your agent to make the request on your behalf. To protect your Personal Information, we reserve the right to deny a request from an agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized by you to act on your behalf.
We take reasonable precautions intended to help protect the Personal Information that we collect and store; however, no system or online transmission of data is completely secure. We cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted to or through the Services. Any transmission is at your own risk. Please use security measures to protect your Personal Information.
The Services are not directed to or intended for use by minors. Consistent with the requirements of the US Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, if we learn that we have received information directly from a child under age 13 without his or her parent’s or legal guardian’s verified consent, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child (or his or her parent or legal guardian) to inform the child that he or she cannot use the Services. Subsequently, we will make commercially reasonable efforts to delete such information.
