CHANGES TO THE SODEXO PRIVACY STATEMENT
Sodexo treats your information as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorized access. We employ information security techniques to appropriately protect confidential information from unauthorized access by visitors inside and outside Sodexo. During order processing your information will be securely managed in an area where we ask you for such information as name, address and credit card number. We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. As outlined above, Sodexo will adopt reasonable measures necessary to protect the security of personally identifiable information. Notwithstanding our efforts to protect your information, no security system is completely impenetrable, so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that information you supply to us will not be intercepted while in transit to us over the Internet. Sodexo is not responsible for unauthorized access to such information by hackers or others who have obtained such access through illegal measures.

Please note that if you link to a third-party site from this Web Site, any information you reveal on that site is not subject to the Sodexo Privacy Statement.
