WHAT ARE COOKIES?
When visiting Nestlé websites, both the site being viewed and third party sites will store small text files on your computer called Cookies.
Although these files are invisible to most users, we want to be transparent in communicating why they exist and why they are of benefit. We feel it’s important to inform you which cookies our sites use and how we use the data they hold.
WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES MAY BE USED ON NESTLÉ SITES?
Nestlé is committed to protecting your privacy. We never store personally identifiable information in a Cookie, but we use them for the following purposes:
1. To give you a better experience.
2. To keep you secure.
Cookies play an important role in helping keep our website secure. We use them to prevent other people from impersonating you or causing other fraudulent and disruptive activity.
3. To integrate with social media.
In order to connect our websites to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other social networks, those third party websites store cookies through our site. These allow you to do things like Tweet about a video or see which of your Facebook friends have liked a page.
4. To help us understand our audience.
We want to provide our visitors with the most relevant content and to do that we need to know who they are, where they are, and the pages they view most. We use third party systems including Google Analytics which gather anonymous information to help provide us with this data. These third parties don’t provide us with your personal information but rather, they give us anonymous information about our visitors.
