We use the hCaptcha security service (hereinafter "hCaptcha") on our website. This service is provided by Intuition Machines, Inc., a Delaware US Corporation ("IMI"). 

hCaptcha is used to check whether user actions on our online service (such as submitting a login or contact form) meet our security requirements. To do this, hCaptcha analyzes the behavior of the website or mobile app visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website or mobile app visitor enters a part of the website or app with hCaptcha enabled. For the analysis, hCaptcha evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, how long the visitor has been on the website or app, or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis will be forwarded to IMI. hCaptcha analysis in the "invisible mode" may take place completely in the background. Website or app visitors are not advised that such an analysis is taking place if the user is not shown a challenge. Data processing is based on Art. 6(1)(b) of the GDPR: the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the website visitor is party (for example, the website terms) or in order to take steps at the request of the website visitor prior to entering into a contract. Our online service (including our website, mobile apps, and any other apps or other forms of access offered by us) needs to ensure that it is interacting with a human, not a bot, and that activities performed by the user are not related to fraud or abuse. In addition, processing may also be based on Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR: our online service has a legitimate interest in protecting the service from abusive automated crawling, spam, and other forms of abuse that can harm our service or other users of our service. IMI acts as a "data processor" acting on behalf of its customers as defined under the GDPR, and a "service provider" for the purposes of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).

Can my Personal Data be sold?


As a matter of respect for our principles, and unless otherwise specified, GEODIS does not sell your personal data.



How GEODIS protects your Personal Data?


Information Security is a key aspect of GEODIS’ overall IT solution. Data security controls and measures are in place throughout the enterprise and integrated in processes and procedures used in everyday operations. Several methodologies are used to govern and protect access to GEODIS’ system resources and data.

These include physical security measures (security of access to premises, badges, etc.), organizational security measures (training, procedures, etc.), as well as IT security measures (antivirus, password security, backup, etc.). Measures are also in place to ensure that only authorized recipients have access to data, under appropriate security conditions



What are Your rights and how can You exercise them?


Depending on the contractual relationship, we may collect and process Personal Data on behalf of a particular customer in order to provide the services for which that customer has engaged us, in accordance with our contract with such customer.  If you would like to exercise your rights with respect to your Personal Data that we hold as a service provider for a particular customer, you should contact that customer directly.

For data processing where GEODIS is qualified as Data Controller under the GDPR or Service Provider under the CCPA or any equivalent quality defined by applicable data protection regulation, Users are entitled to request access, rectification and/or erasure of Personal Data concerning them. Users also have the right to request that we restrict the processing of their personal data and the right to give instructions regarding the use of their personal data after their death.  Each User is entitled to request the provision of their Personal Data to them or to a third party in machine readable format. Please note that, where We rely on consent for the use of your Personal Data, you can withdraw at any time Your consent. In the event of difficulties relating to the management of your personal data, or if you consider that your rights have not been respected, you can address a complaint to the competent supervisory authority.
