California Law provides consumers with specific rights regarding their personal information. The following section describes your California Law rights and explains how to exercise those rights. Your California Law rights include the:
Right to Know or Access Specific Information and Data Portability Rights
You have the right to request that we disclose to you your personal information that we collected, used, disclosed, shared, and sold. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Your Rights), we will disclose to you:

Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Your Rights), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us (or our service provider(s)) to:
- Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
- Help ensure security and integrity to the extent the use of your personal information is reasonably necessary and proportionate for those purposes, including to detect security incidents that compromise the availability, authenticity, integrity, and confidentiality of stored or transmitted personal information; protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity and help prosecute those responsible for that activity; or ensure the life and physical safety of natural persons.
- Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
- Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise his or her free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.

- Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
- Comply with a legal obligation (including complying with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.)).
- Otherwise use your personal information, internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided the information.
Right to Correct Inaccurate Personal Information
You have the right to request that we correct any of your personal information that we maintain about you that is inaccurate.
Right to Opt-Out of Sales or Sharing of Personal Information
We do not sell your personal information for direct, monetary profit. However, as described above, we may engage in certain information disclosure activities that may be considered “sales” or “sharing” under California Law. If Kilroy sells your personal information to or shares it such information with third parties, you may have the right to opt-out of the sale or sharing of such information.
To exercise the right to opt-out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us by visiting the following Internet Web page link: https://kilroyrealty.com/privacy-request-form
Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information
If you have an opt-out preference signal enabled (e.g., the Global Privacy Control), you will automatically be opted out of the sale or sharing of your information, but we may ask you to confirm your preference if you have previously consented to the sale or sharing of your Personal Information. Please also note that that if you have an account with us, but are not logged into your account, we may not be able to associate the browser or device information connected to your opt-out preference signal with you. If you would like for us to make this connection, you may submit additional information to us through the interactive webform linked above and in the “Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information” link at the bottom of our website.
To download and use a browser supporting the opt-out preference signal, please visit https://globalprivacycontrol.org/orgs. If you choose to you the opt-out preference signal, you will need to enable it for each supported browser or browser extension you use.
Right to Non-Discrimination
We will not discriminate against you for choosing to exercise any of your rights. If you exercise certain rights, understand that you may be unable to use or access certain features of the Platform. Unless permitted by applicable law, we will not: (i) deny you goods or services; (ii) charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties; (iii) provide you a different level or quality of goods or services; or (iv) suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
Exercising Your Rights
To exercise the rights described above, please submit a consumer request to us by:
- Calling us at 833-319-2998
- Emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Sending us a request through our online request portal
To exercise your right to know, access, delete, or correct your personal information as described above, we need to verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Only you, your parent, guardian (if you are under 13 years or age), conservator, a person to whom you have given power of attorney pursuant to California Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465, or an authorized agent may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may, however, make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child if necessary. We will only use personal information provided in your consumer request to verify your identity or authority to make the request. Your verifiable consumer request must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative. We cannot respond to your request if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request. You may only make a verifiable consumer request for your right to access twice within a 12-month period.
Response Timing and Format
Once we have verified a request from a California consumer, where required, we will confirm receipt of the request within 10 days and explain how we will process the request. We will make our best effort to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. We may require an additional 45 days (for a total of 90 days) to process your request, but in those situations, we will provide you a response and explanation for the reason it will take more than 45 days to respond to the request. Our responses will include required information under California Law. For right to access requests, we will select a format that is readily usable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance. We do not charge a fee to process your verifiable consumer request unless it is manifestly unfounded or excessive.
We may retain all categories of your personal information described above for as long as needed to carry out the purposes described herein or as otherwise required by applicable law. Unless we are required or permitted by law to keep your personal information for a longer period of time, when your personal information is no longer necessary to carry out the purposes for which we process it, we will delete your personal information or keep it in a form that does not permit identifying you. When determining the retention period, we take into account various criteria, such as the nature of the use of the Platform, your general relationship with us, the impact on our ability to provide you the Platform if we delete your personal information, mandatory retention periods provided by law and the statute of limitations, and our use of your personal information for aggregated market research.
Other California Privacy Rights
California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our Platform that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, send an email to email@example.com or call us at 833-319-2998.
