What are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites and/or applications that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites and/or applications work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the website and/or application.

How and why do we use Cookies?

We use Cookies to improve the use and functionality of our websites and/or applications and gain a better understanding how visitors use our websites and/or applications and the tools and services offered on it. Cookies help us tailor Nestlé websites and/or applications to your personal needs, to improve their user-friendliness, gain customer satisfaction feedback on our websites and/or applications (through designated partners) and to communicate to you elsewhere on the web. We do not use Cookies to collect personal information such as your name; however, we may link information contained in a Cookie to personal information collected from you by other means (e.g., general website and/or application registration).

How can you change your Cookie settings?

Please ensure that your computer/mobile device setting reflects whether you are happy to accept Cookies or not. You can set your browser to warn you before accepting Cookies, or you can simply set it to refuse them, although you may not have access to all the features on our websites and/or applications if you do so. See your browser 'help' button for how you can do this. You do not need to have Cookies on to use or navigate through many parts of our websites and/or applications. Remember that if you use different computers in different locations, you will need to ensure that each browser is adjusted to suit your Cookie preferences.

What types of Cookies are used?

The following tables categorise and describe the various Cookies used within our website and/or applications:

Functional Cookies  

These are Cookies which are set up to improve the functionality of the website and/or application. For example, Cookies that remember the content you previously viewed on the website and/or application or the email address and password you provided when registering during an earlier visit to the website and/or application. Cookies may also remember items you have previously placed in your shopping cart while visiting a Nestlé Online Store. Using Functional Cookies, therefore, may allow us to serve you content tailored to your interests and save you the time of having to re-register or re-enter information when you re-visit a website and/or application or try to access certain member-only sections. On some websites and/or applications, Cookies enable us to store your favorite recipes, activities, points or high scores. We may also use Cookies to lockout underage users from certain activities.
