Complete the "Online Request Form" to create a new Consumer Request.
Contact by telephone: 1-877-219-4035 for assistance with the Online Request Form.
You may designate an authorized agent to exercise your right to know, your right to delete and request updates by submitting to us a completed “Authorized Agent Designation” form. You can obtain the designation form by writing to:
If an authorized agent submits a request 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) a 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.
The processes that we follow to provide access to our "Secure Online Portal" and verify the identity of the person making a request to know, update or delete data about whom we have collected personal information are described below.
All consumer requests require multiple verifications to confirm both the email of the consumer making the requests and the "Secure Online Portal" access requested.
For each new request via our "Online Request Form", a consumer will receive an email requesting confirmation of their email address to enable access to our "Secure Online Portal". Once the "Secure Online Portal" is accessed, we will require that you re-authenticate yourself by completing a "Request an Access Code" process and entering the code sent to enable access to the "Secure Online Portal" and two-way communication with the Manpower Group Privacy team.
You are responsible for protecting the security of your credentials and codes for the "Secure Online Portal" so please do not share your access credentials or codes with anyone. If we suspect fraudulent or malicious activity on or from your account, we will not respond to any request until we have been able to confirm, through further verification procedures, that you made the request.
As an additional access point, a phone number is available for any assistance you may need in making your request via the "Online request Form" and "Secure Online Portal"
All Consumer Requests require verification of a consumer’s identity to confirm they are who they say they are and additional documentation if you are submitting requests on behalf of someone else.
Under the CCPA, a business is only required to respond to requests that are "Verifiable Consumer Requests". A verifiable consumer request is defined as a request that is made by a consumer, by a consumer on behalf of the consumer’s minor child, or by a natural person or a person registered with the Secretary of State, authorized by the consumer to act on the consumer’s behalf, and that the business can reasonably verify to be the consumer about whom the business has collected personal identifiable information.
All Consumer Requests for Personal Information:
Consumer will need to provide one of the following to verify their personal identity: Scanned Driver License, Birth Certificate, Utility Bill or Passport when making a request for themselves.
Consumer will additionally need to provide a scanned Power-Of-Attorney if the consumer request is on behalf of someone else for any reason.
All Consumer Update Requests To Personal Information also require:
Consumer will additionally need to provide proof of the changes requested.
We have implemented the following additional procedures when verifying the identity of Consumers making requests:
If we cannot verify your identity based on the processes described above, we may ask you for additional verification information. If we do so, we will permanently delete the verification information that you provide promptly after we have completed the verification process. We will not use that information for any purpose other than verification.
If we cannot verify your identity to a sufficient level of certainty to respond to your request, we will let you know promptly and explain why we cannot verify your identity and process your request.
California Consumers have the right not to be subject to discriminatory treatment by Company for exercising their privacy rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act, and Company will not discriminate on that basis. However, Company may charge a California Consumer a different price or rate or provide a different level or quality of goods or services if the difference is reasonably related to the value provided to the California Consumer by the Consumer’s Personal Information. If Company does so, it will provide Consumers with any legally required notice.
