We use this information to determine the general physical location of the device and to know in which geographical areas visitors are located. 

Statistics

The website uses Google Analytics to generate statistical reports. These reports tell us, for example, how many users consulted the website, which pages were visited and in which geographical areas website users are located. The information gathered via the statistics may include, for example, your IP address, the website from which you arrived at our site and the type of device that you used. Your IP address is hidden on our systems and will only be used if necessary to resolve a technical problem, for website administration and to gain insight into our users’ preferences. Website traffic information is only accessible to authorized staff. We do not use any of this information to identify visitors and we do not share this information with third parties.

Social networks create a friendlier atmosphere on the website and assist in promoting the website via sharing. Video sharing services enrich the video content of our website and increase its visibility.

If you do not want us to have access to your personal information published in the public spaces of your profile or your social accounts, then you should use the procedures provided by the social networks in question to limit access to this information.

 

PURPOSES FOR WHICH WE USE PERSONAL DATA

We use your personal data specifically for the following purposes:

 

LEGAL BASIS FOR THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA

We process your personal data as part of the performance and management of our contractual relationship with you, in our legitimate interest to improve the quality and operational excellence of the services we offer to you or in compliance with certain regulatory obligations.

Your personal data may also be processed based on your prior consent in the event that under certain circumstances, your consent would be requested. 

 

DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL DATA

The security and confidentiality of your personal data are of great importance to us. This is why we restrict access to your personal data only to members of our staff who need to have this information in order to process your orders or to provide the requested service.

We will not disclose your personal data to any unauthorized third parties. We may, however, share your personal data with entities within the Sodexo group and with authorized service providers (for example: technical service providers [hosting, maintenance], consultants, etc.) whom we may call upon for the purpose of providing our services. We do not authorize our service providers to use or disclose your data, except to the extent necessary to deliver the services on our behalf or to comply with legal obligations. Furthermore, we may share personal data concerning you (i) if the law or a legal procedure requires us to do so, (ii) in response to a request by public authorities or other officials or (iii) if we are of the opinion that transferring these data is necessary or appropriate to prevent any physical harm or financial loss or in respect of an investigation concerning a suspected or proven unlawful activity.

 

STORAGE PERIOD OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

We will store your data only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected and processed. This period may be extended, if applicable, for any amount of time prescribed by any legal or regulatory provisions that may apply. 

 

SENSITIVE PERSONAL DATA

As a general rule, we do not collect sensitive personal data via our website. “Sensitive personal data” refers to any information concerning a person’s racial or ethnic origins, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, union membership, health data or data relating to the sexual life or the sexual orientation of a natural person. This definition also includes personal data relating to criminal convictions and offenses.

In the event that it would be strictly necessary to collect such data to achieve the purpose for which the processing is performed, we will do so in accordance with local legal requirements for the protection of personal data and, in particular, with your explicit prior consent and under the conditions described in this Confidentiality Policy.  

 

PERSONAL INFORMATION AND CHILDREN

The website is for use by adult persons who have the capacity to conclude a contract under the legislation of the country in which they are located.

Children users under the age of 16 years or without legal capacity must obtain consent from their legal guardians prior to submitting their data to the website. 

The 16-year age limit may be reduced to 13 years depending on the local legislation in your usual place of residence.

 

TRANSFER OF PERSONAL DATA 

As Sodexo is an international group, your personal data may be transmitted to internal or external recipients that are authorized to perform services on our behalf and that are located in countries outside the European Union or the European Economic Area which do not offer an adequate level of personal data protection. 

To guarantee the security and confidentiality of personal data thus transmitted, we will take all necessary measures to ensure that these data receive adequate protection, such as signing standard European Commission contractual clauses or other equivalent measures.

Sodexo is committed to ensure protection of your rights under applicable laws. You will find below a table summarizing your different rights:

To this end, we take all necessary precautions given the nature of the personal data and the risks related to its processing, in order to maintain data security and in particular to prevent distortion, damage or unauthorized third-party access (physical protection of the premises, authentication procedures with personal, secured access via identifiers and confidential passwords, a connection log, encryption of certain data, etc.).

 

CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIP MANAGEMENT DATABASE (“CRM DATABASE”)

We use a database to manage and monitor our relationships with existing and potential customers.

These websites are run by third parties with their own confidentiality recommendations or terms of use which we strongly advise you to read. We do not accept any liability with regard to the content on these sites, for the products and services that may be offered there or for any other use thereof.
