Cookies Policy


This Cookie policy applies to the global organ­iz­a­tion of Sodexo entit­ies (here­in­after referred to as “Yachts de Paris” or “we”, or “our”) for all dimen­sions and activ­it­ies, in all geograph­ies where we oper­ate. Where local legis­la­tion requires a higher level of protec­tion than this Policy for Personal Data includ­ing data collec­ted via Cook­ies, the local legis­la­tion will always take preced­ence over this Cookie policy.

Sodexo is the data Control­ler who collects and processes the personal inform­a­tion you provide on our differ­ent websites, portals, applic­a­tions, and plat­forms (“Our Site”).

Our Cookie policy aims to show you how we respect the privacy of all visit­ors and users of Our Site.

Cook­ies are small files, down­loaded on your device when you access Our Site, with the aim to recog­nize your device or to store inform­a­tion about your pref­er­ences or past actions. They are used to help you navig­ate effi­ciently and perform certain func­tions on all our differ­ent Sites.

Other track­ing tech­no­lo­gies, such as pixel tags or web beacons, may also be used on your device to collect unique iden­ti­fi­ers asso­ci­ated with it and other data such as your IP address. Pixels tags or web beacons are small images placed on a web page or in an email. The web beacon oper­ates as a tag that records a user’s visit to a partic­u­lar web page or view­ing of a partic­u­lar e-mail.

Some track­ing tech­no­lo­gies are specific to mobile applic­a­tions such as the SDKs (Soft­ware Devel­op­ment Kit). SDKs are pack­ages of tools that help our apps func­tion on an iOS or Android envir­on­ment. SDKs help us under­stand how you inter­act with Our Site and collect certain inform­a­tion about the device and network you use to access, it also helps our applic­a­tions commu­nic­ate with third parties through what is called an applic­a­tion program­ming inter­face, or API (e.g. when shar­ing content on Face­book). SDKs may then collect and send data back to the third party that provides them (e.g. Google or Apple, Face­book etc.), which may be used to build your profile as the applic­a­tion user, which can then be used for targeted ads.

These track­ing tech­no­lo­gies use data in the same way as cook­ies and as such are subjec­ted to this policy.
We use the term “Cook­ies” in this docu­ment for all the differ­ent kinds of track­ing tech­no­lo­gies, as a facil­it­ator for the global under­stand­ing on all Our Sites.


The types of Cook­ies that we use may be:
•    Session Cook­ies: such Cook­ies allow Our Site to link your actions during a session and are auto­mat­ic­ally deleted when you close your session on Our Site.
•    Persist­ent Cook­ies: such Cook­ies remain stored in your device until it reaches a defined expir­a­tion date which can be days or minutes. They may be used for a vari­ety of purposes includ­ing remem­ber­ing your pref­er­ences and choices when using a Site or for targeted advert­ising.
•    First party Cook­ies: such Cook­ies are stored by the Site you are visit­ing, with the purpose to improve your exper­i­ence and are set by a Site owner (us).
•    Third party Cook­ies: such Cook­ies are set by a tech­no­logy provider, such as an analyt­ics company, advert­ising network or social media plat­form that is inde­pend­ent from us.

More specific­ally, the Cook­ies used on Our Site are categor­ized as follows:
•    Strictly neces­sary cook­ies;
•    Func­tional cook­ies;
•    Audi­ence meas­ure­ment cook­ies;
•    Target­ing cook­ies (which can also include social network Cook­ies)



Strictly neces­sary Cook­ies are Cook­ies that must be present for the Site  to provide the basic func­tions and without which the Site and its func­tion­al­it­ies would not work correctly.

They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy pref­er­ences, logging in or filling in forms (e.g., to register to events or to provide feed­backs). They can also main­tain your session open when you identify your­self on the Site. 
Your consent is not neces­sary for these Cook­ies accord­ing to the applic­able regu­la­tion but you should be informed of their use. 

More inform­a­tion on the differ­ent Strictly neces­sary Cook­ies used on Our Site, includ­ing the data reten­tion period, purpose and third parties if any, can be found in the cookie settings and in Sections 3 and 4 of this policy. 



Func­tional Cook­ies help us to remem­ber the settings which you have selec­ted or assist with other func­tion­al­ity when you use Our Site. This helps us remem­ber your pref­er­ences when you return to Our Site.
These Cook­ies enhance func­tion­al­ity and person­al­iz­a­tion. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to Our Site. You can set your browser or cookie settings to block these Cook­ies, but be aware that, in that case, some or all of these func­tion­al­it­ies may not func­tion prop­erly and that some parts of Our Site may not work. 

You can manage your consent and find more inform­a­tion on the differ­ent Func­tional Cook­ies used on Our Site, includ­ing the data reten­tion period, purpose and third parties if any, can be found in the cookie settings and in Sections 3 and 4 of this policy. 



Audi­ence meas­ure­ment Cook­ies, which include analyt­ics tech­no­lo­gies, help us with the perform­ance and design of Our Site. This func­tion allows us to meas­ure how many times a page has been visited, to know which pages and func­tion­al­it­ies are the most and least popu­lar and see how visit­ors move around the Site to improve your exper­i­ence. Those Cook­ies might also count visit­ors who have come to Our Site after having viewed a Sodexo banner ad on a third-party site.

If you do not accept these Cook­ies, or with­draw your consent, we will have no support­ing inform­a­tion to improve Our Site or to determ­ine how well it is received by our end users.  These Cook­ies basic­ally allow you to let us know how well Our Site is doing. The inform­a­tion collec­ted by these Cook­ies could also be aggreg­ated. Our Site analyt­ics metrics, reports and stat­ist­ics, if used alone, do not allow us or our providers, to identify an indi­vidual User. In this case, the Cookie may not be subject to your consent. 



Target­ing, and or “advert­ising” Cook­ies are installed on Our Site by us and our advert­ising part­ners to present advert­ise­ments that are relev­ant to you and better reflect your interests instead of generic advert­ise­ments that might not interest you. These cook­ies can include social network Cook­ies that allow you to share content on social networks and to improve the user-friend­li­ness of our content thanks to the shar­ing buttons, in partic­u­lar towards Face­book, Twit­ter and LinkedIn. 

The social networks that provide the shar­ing buttons may identify you through this process only if your account on the relev­ant network was activ­ated on your terminal. Sodexo does not have control over the process used by social networks to collect inform­a­tion about you. 

Target­ing Cook­ies uniquely identify your browser and/or your device. If you do not allow these Cook­ies, you will not exper­i­ence our targeted advert­ising across differ­ent plat­forms. It is possible however that you may still see our non-targeted advert­ise­ments on these plat­forms.

These Cook­ies collect inform­a­tion relat­ing to the origin of your visit, where you were exposed to Sodexo advert­ising, what advert­ising feature you saw, whether you arrived directly or indir­ectly to Our Site, the device you used to visit Our Site and which down­loads you performed.

In addi­tion, we also use Cook­ies on certain parts of Our Site to commu­nic­ate with third party data providers to extra­pol­ate your digital beha­viour. This helps us under­stand your beha­viour and provide more relev­ant advert­ising in the future.

You can manage your consent and find more inform­a­tion on the differ­ent Target­ing Cook­ies used on Our Site, includ­ing the data reten­tion period, purpose and third parties if any, in the cookie settings and in Sections 3 and 4 of this policy.



Specific inform­a­tion regard­ing inter­na­tional trans­fers. The use of some of these Cook­ies may lead to inter­na­tional trans­fers of your Personal data to third parties located in third-parties coun­tries that do not offer the same level of protec­tion of Personal data as within the European Union, namely in the United States of Amer­ica essen­tially. Formal data processing agree­ments have been concluded with those third parties, but they are not considered as provid­ing appro­pri­ate safe­guards by the super­vis­ory author­it­ies, in accord­ance with article 46 of the GDPR. 

Indeed, the risks asso­ci­ated with those inter­na­tional trans­fers of Personal data are that, since the third parties concerned can be qual­i­fied as a provider of elec­tronic commu­nic­a­tions services, local admin­is­trat­ive and govern­mental author­it­ies might have access to your Personal data in accord­ance with applic­able national surveil­lance laws.

Nonethe­less, accord­ing to the GDPR, those kinds of inter­na­tional trans­fers of Personal data are possible if you expli­citly consen­ted to the proposed trans­fer, after having been informed of the possible risks of such trans­fers for the data subject due to the absence of an adequacy decision or altern­at­ive appro­pri­ate safe­guards. 
There­fore, if you consent to audi­ence meas­ure­ment cook­ies through the cook­ies banner or the cookie settings, please be aware that you consent to those trans­fers, and accept the risks described above. 

You can manage your consent to the cook­ies and to the trans­fers of Personal data, and find more inform­a­tion on the differ­ent Audi­ence meas­ure­ment Cook­ies used on Our Site, includ­ing the data reten­tion period, purposes and inform­a­tion regard­ing inter­na­tional trans­fers of Personal data to third parties if any (type of data trans­ferred, secur­ity meas­ures imple­men­ted so that the trans­fers can be carried out in a secure way for the data subjects, recip­i­ents), in the descrip­tion of the cook­ies in the cookie settings and in Sections 3 and 4 of this policy. If you refuse to consent it will have no consequence on your use of the Site.



Session Cook­ies are auto­mat­ic­ally deleted when you close your session.
Persist­ent Cook­ies will be stored on your device for a maximum dura­tion of 13 months unless you clear the Cook­ies using your browser settings and erase your browser cache.
