We undertake to obtain your consent and/or allow you to object to the use of your data for certain purposes, as soon as necessary.


In all cases, you will be informed of the purposes for which your data is collected via this policy, and the various online data collection forms.

In order to ensure the security and confidentiality of the Personal Data transferred in this way, we take all necessary measures to ensure that such data is adequately protected, such as signing with the recipients of your Personal Data the European Commission's Standard Contractual Clauses ("SCCs") or any other valid transfer mechanism. To this end, we carry out, in accordance with the recommendations of the European Data Protection Board, a risk assessment of the transfer of data.




Sodexo is committed to facilitating the exercise of your rights in accordance with applicable regulations. Below is a table summarising the different rights you have:




You may request a copy of the Personal Data we hold about you. You may also request the rectification of inaccurate Personal Data, or the completion of incomplete Personal Data.







Your right to be forgotten allows your Personal Data to be erased when:


(i)         they are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected and processed;

(ii)       you decide to withdraw your consent (in cases where your consent has been collected as a legal basis for the Processing). This withdrawal does not impact the lawfulness of the Processing before its implementation;

(iii)     you object to the Processing of your Personal Data;

(iv)    your Personal Data has been unlawfully Processed;

(v)       your Personal Data must be erased to comply with a legal obligation;

(vi)    Their erasure is mandatory to ensure compliance with applicable legislation.

(i)         you dispute their accuracy;

(ii)       they are no longer necessary for the purposes of the Processing;

(iii)     you have objected to the Processing for legitimate reasons;

(iv)    The processing of this data is unlawful and you prefer the restriction of its use rather than its deletion.







Where applicable, you may request the portability of the Personal Data concerning you that you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You have the right to transmit such Personal Data to another Controller without hindrance from Sodexo, where:


(i)         the Processing of your Personal Data is based on your consent or on an existing contractual relationship; and

(ii)       the Processing is carried out by automated means.


You also have the right to have your Personal Data transmitted directly to another Controller (where technically feasible).




You have the right to object (right of "withdrawal") to the Processing of your Personal Data (including profiling or commercial communications). Where we process your Personal Data on the basis of your consent, you may withdraw it at any time.


You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated Processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you.


In application of the French law on the protection of Personal Data, you can also define guidelines on the exercise of your rights provided for in this section after your death, (in particular on their storage period, their deletion and/or their


communication) as well as designate a person responsible for the exercise of these rights.



You may decide to lodge a complaint with the Commission Nationale de l'Informatique et des Libertés (CNIL) [The French Data Protection Authority] via the address, without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.


You may, at any time, exercise any of the rights listed above or contact us with any questions or concerns related to the protection of your Personal Data via our Online Form.


We may ask you for additional information in order to identify you and be able to process your request.




We implement all technical and organisational measures to ensure the security and confidentiality of the Processing of Personal Data.


As such, we take all necessary precautions, with regard to the nature of the Personal Data and the risks presented by the Processing, in order to preserve the security of the data and, in particular, to prevent them from being distorted, damaged or accessed by unauthorised third parties (physical protection of the premises, authentication processes with personal and secure access via confidential identifiers and passwords, logging connections, encrypting certain data, etc.).


However, you are also responsible for ensuring the security and confidentiality of your Personal Data. We therefore invite you to remain vigilant, especially when using an open system such as the Internet.




As part of the provision of certain services, the Portal may redirect you to mobile applications and/or websites managed by third parties (hereinafter the "Platforms"). These third parties are responsible for creating and administering any account(s) that allow you to access the Platforms. These platforms operate independently of our Portal and are not under our control. These platforms have their own privacy notice or terms of use, which we invite you to read.


If you have any questions about the conditions under which your Personal Data is collected and processed by these third parties and to know in particular what your rights are (access, rectification etc.) and how to exercise them, please consult the privacy policies available on their Platforms.




You may also at any time ask us to stop receiving notifications by contacting us directly and free of charge, or by using the unsubscribe link included in the email alert email we may send you or via our Online Form. This opposition is without prejudice to the legality of items sent made before its implementation.





We may update or modify, from time to time, this Privacy Policy. In this case, the changes made will only be applicable after the expiry of a period of 30 working days from the modification. Check this page periodically if you want to monitor for changes.
