Nestlé Middle East FZE (“Nestlé”) is committed to safeguarding
your privacy and ensuring that you continue to trust Nestlé with your personal data.
When you interact with us, you may share personal information with us which allows
identification of you as an individual (e.g. name, email, address, telephone number).
This is known as “personal data”.
This notice (“Privacy Notice”) sets out:
This Privacy Notice applies to the personal data that we collect about you for the purposes of providing you with our products and services we offer.
By using Nestlé Sites (as defined below) or by giving us your personal data, you accept the practices described in this Privacy Notice. If you do not agree to this Privacy Notice, please do not use Nestlé Sites (as defined below) or give us any personal data.
Nestlé reserves the right to make changes to this Privacy Notice at any time. We encourage you to regularly review this Privacy Notice to make sure you are aware of any changes and how your personal data may be used.
Nestlé may collect personal data about you from a variety of sources, including through:

Nestlé does not knowingly solicit or collect personal data from children below the age of 12. If Nestlé discovers that it has accidentally collected personal data from a child below 12, it will remove that child’s personal data from its records as
soon as reasonably possible. However, Nestlé may collect personal data about children below the age of 12 years of age from the parent or custodian directly and therefore with their explicit consent.
Nestlé collects and uses personal data only as necessary for the purposes for which it was obtained. Nestlé may use your personal data for some or all of the following purposes:

5.2) Service providers
Nestlé may engage service providers, agents or contractors to provide services on its behalf, including to administer Nestlé Sites and services available to you. These third parties may come to access or otherwise process your personal data in the course of providing these services.
Nestlé requires such third parties, who may be based outside the country from which you have accessed the Nestlé Site or service, to comply with all relevant data protection laws and security requirements in relation to your personal data, usually by way of a written agreement.
5.3) Partners and joint promotions
Nestlé may run a joint or co-sponsored program or promotion with another company and, as part of your involvement in the activity, collect and use your personal data.
Your personal data will only be shared with another company if you have opted in to receive information directly from that company. Nestlé encourages you to read the privacy notice of any such company before sharing personal data. If you do not want your personal data to be collected by or shared with a company other than Nestlé, you can always choose not to participate in such activity.

Nestlé may disclose your personal data if it is required to do so by law or if, in Nestlé’s good faith judgment, such legal disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with legal processes or respond to any claims.
In the event of a full or partial merger with, or acquisition of all or part of Nestlé by another company, the acquirer would have access to the information maintained by that Nestlé business, which could include personal data.

We may use the following types of cookies on Nestlé Sites:
Session cookies - These are temporary cookie files which are erased when you close your browser. When you restart your browser and go back to the site that created that cookie, the website will treat you as a new visitor.
Persistent cookies – These cookies stay on your browser until you delete them manually or until your browser deletes them based on the duration period set within the cookie. These cookies will recognize you as a return visitor.
Necessarycookies - Necessary cookies are strictly necessary for the operation of a Nestlé Site. They enable you to navigate around the site and use our features.
Cookies that send information to us - These are the cookies that we set on a Nestlé Site and they can only be read by that site. This is known as a “First Party” cookie.
We also place cookies on Nestlé advertisements which are placed on other websites owned by third parties (e.g. Facebook). We obtain information via those cookies when you click on or interact with the advertisement. In this situation Nestlé is placing a “Third Party” cookie.

based on your visit to the Nestlé Site. For example, if you use a social widget (e.g. the Facebook icon) on a Nestlé Site, it will record your “share” or “like”.
