Cookies are used on this website. By using our website, you agree that cookies are to be placed on your device as further explained below.
Cookies are small pieces of data that the website you are visiting sends to the web browser you are using. Mainly, cookies enable you to navigate between pages easily, to remember your preferences, and eventually to improve the user experience. These cookies may then be stored on your machine to identify your computer.
Cookies used on this website can be either set up by our website or by a third-party website. Moreover, these cookies can be “session” or “persistent” cookies: a session cookie is a cookie that is automatically deleted when the user closes the browser, whereas a persistent cookie is a cookie that remains stored in the user’s machine until it reaches its expiry date. Cookies used on the Capgemini website have a maximum lifetime of 12 months.
A. Types of cookies
The different types of cookie we use on this website are divided into the four categories found in the 2012 International Chamber of Commerce UK Cookie Guide.
For more information on the different cookies we use on this website, see the list of cookies below.
Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are necessary for moving around the website and making full use of its features, including access to secure areas. Without these cookies, services you have asked for cannot be provided.
Strictly necessary cookies used on the Capgemini website:
• Registered visitor cookies.
These cookies allow a website to remember choices you make and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local information by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, font and other parts of the web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. These cookies cannot track your browsing activity on other websites and do not gather any information that could be used for advertising.
Functionality cookies used on the Capgemini website:
• Registered visitor functionality cookies.
• Social plug-in content sharing cookies.
These cookies are used to collect information about how visitors use our website—for instance, which pages visitors go to more often, and whether they get error messages from web pages. All information collected by means of these cookies is anonymised, aggregated and only used to develop and track traffic patterns on our website and to improve how it works. This information is for Capgemini’s exclusive use and is not shared with any third party or connected to any other information.
Performance cookies used on the Capgemini website:
• Unregistered visitor cookies.
• Analytic cookies.
Targeting cookies are used to measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign by delivering advertisements that are targeted to be relevant to users. They are also used to limit the number of times a user sees an advertisement. They are usually placed on a website by advertising agencies with the website operator’s permission. These cookies remember that a user has visited a website, and this information is then shared with other organisations (such as advertisers). At the request of the other organisation, these cookies will quite often be linked to a website functionality.
As our website does not have third-party advertising, we do not use targeting cookies.
We use third parties to gather information about our website's advertising audiences and to deliver targeted advertisements on third-party sites. Havas Media does this for us and you can find more information on their website.
We may use Personal Data collected from our cookies to identify user behaviour and to provide content and offers based on your profile.
The performance cookies used on this website do not collect Personal Data.
Other cookies can collect Personal Data (including information from cookies placed via our advertisements on third-party websites):
• If a user is a registered user;
• If we send you a targeted email which includes web beacons, cookies or similar technologies, we will know whether you open, read, or delete the message;
• When you click a link in an email you receive from us, we will also use a cookie to log what pages you view and what content you download from our websites, even if you are not registered at or signed into our site.
Here is a list of the main cookies we use on our website:
|Registered visitor cookie||Cookie given to each registered user.|
|Registered visitor functionality cookie||Cookie used to remember the unique identifier given to each registered user.|
|Social plug-in content sharing cookies.||Cookie set by services such as Facebook Connect or Twitter Button, which allow social networks users to share the content of our websites on social networks.|
|Unregistered visitor cookie||Cookie used to give to unregistered visitors a unique identifier in order to recognise them and to analyse how they use the website.|
C. Other tracking technologies
Capgemini also uses technologies that perform functions similar to cookies, such as web beacons or other technologies that may be included in marketing email messages or newsletters, in order to determine whether messages have been opened and links clicked on. Web beacons do not place information on your computer, but may work in conjunction with cookies to monitor website activity.
D. “Do-not-track” signals
If you do not want to receive cookies from our website, you may set your browser to refuse them or to notify you when you receive one, which you may then accept or refuse upon such notice. You can also set your browser to turn off cookies. To understand how to do this, please consult your browser’s “Tools” section, or any other similar heading.
We recommend that you leave the cookies active. Bear in mind that if you block, turn off or otherwise reject our cookies, some web pages may not display properly or you will not be able to use certain website services that require you to sign in.
If you object to having cookies placed on your machine, you need to disable them. In order to do this, please follow the relevant instructions below depending on your browser:
• If you use Internet Explorer.
• If you use Firefox.
• If you use Safari.
• If you use Google Chrome.
Capgemini is a global organisation. Whilst we have distinct legal entities (e.g. country subsidiaries) in many parts of the world, our internal processes and infrastructure are international. Accordingly, you should be aware that we may share your Personal Data inside Capgemini and transfer it to countries in the world where we have data centres or otherwise do business, including those located outside the European Union. Not all of these countries have specific Privacy laws and they may, as a result, provide only minimal legal protection for your Personal Data. In these instances, Capgemini will process your Personal Data in the manner described by this Policy and in accordance with applicable law.
Like many organisations, we use third-party suppliers to collect, use and otherwise process Personal Data on our behalf. Our practice is to require such third parties to handle Personal Data in accordance with Capgemini’s commitments regarding confidentiality and security.
Like many organisations, Capgemini may reorganise its business operations around the world from time to time, whether by buying new businesses or selling or merging existing businesses. This may involve us disclosing Personal Data to prospective or actual purchasers of parts of our business, or receiving Personal Data from potential sellers. It is our practice to seek appropriate confidentiality protection for Personal Data disclosed in these types of transactions.
Sensitive Personal Data
As a general rule, Capgemini does not collect “Sensitive Personal Data” through its website. “Sensitive Personal Data” means Personal Data concerning racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade-union membership, or concerning health or sexual orientation. By volunteering unsolicited sensitive Personal Data to us (e.g. by submitting your CV or a job application online), you expressly consent to your Personal Data being used as described in this Policy.
Accessing, correcting, updating and deleting Personal Data
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this Policy, or would like to request a copy of your Personal Data, then please fill in this form. Also, if you consider your Personal Data to be incorrect or wish to have it deleted, then please either sign in and update, correct or delete your profile on our website or fill in the form previously mentioned so that Capgemini may make any necessary updates, corrections and/or deletions.
Data security and integrity
Capgemini uses various technological and procedural security measures in order to protect the Personal Data we collect, use or transfer from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. However, you should be aware that, due to the open structure and lack of security on the Internet, Capgemini cannot be held responsible for the security of transmissions of Personal Data over the Internet.
Capgemini websites may provide links to third-party websites. Capgemini does not make any representations or warranties with respect to such third-party websites. You should be aware that the owners and operators of such third-party websites might collect, use or transfer Personal Data under different terms and conditions than Capgemini. Upon linking to a third-party website, you should familiarise yourself with the privacy policies of such third-party websites.
