3. What type of cookies does Nescafé Dolce Gusto use?

The following types of cookies are used on Nescafé Dolce Gusto website.

Necessary cookies

These are cookies that are strictly necessary for the operation of a website. Without these cookies, this website won’t work properly. Accordingly, we are not asking you for your specific consent for those cookies. For all other cookies your informed consent is required.

 

Session cookies

Session cookies 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.

 

Functional/Persistent Cookies

These are cookies which are set up to improve the functionality of the website. For example, cookies that remember the content you previously viewed on this website or the email address and password you provided when registering during an earlier visit to this website. Cookies may also remember items you have previously placed in your shopping cart while visiting a Nescafé Dolce Gusto website. 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 this website or try to access certain member-only sections. On some website, cookies enable us to store your favourite recipes, activities, points or high scores. We may also use Cookies to lockout underage users from certain activities.

 

Cookies that send information to us

These are the cookies that we set on a Nescafé Dolce Gusto Site and they can only be read by that site. This is known as a "First Party" cookie.

We also place cookies on brand ads which are placed on other website 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 the brand is placing a “Third Party” cookie. The brand may use the information obtained by these cookies to serve you with advertising that is relevant and of interest to you based on your past online behaviour.

 

Cookies that send information to other companies

These are cookies that are set on a Nescafé Dolce Gusto Site by our partner companies (e.g. Facebook or advertisers). They may use the data collected from these cookies to anonymously target advertising to you on other website, based on your visit to this Website. For example, if you use a social widget (e.g. the Facebook icon) on the Website, it will record your “share” or “like”. Facebook (as the company setting the cookie) will collect the data. This is known as a “Third Party’’ cookie.

 

Demographics and Interest Reporting

Some of our website use Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to improve advertising. Some common applications are to target advertising based on what’s relevant to a user, to improve reporting on campaign performance, and to avoid showing ads the user has already seen. This is done using something called the DoubleClick cookie. If you don’t want your information collected in this way, you can:

  • use Google’s Ad Settings to opt out of Display Advertising; or

DoubleClick cookies contain no personally identifiable information. Sometimes the DoubleClick cookie will contain an additional identifier that is similar in appearance to the cookie ID, and is used to identify an ad campaign to which a user was exposed previously.

We will not use any information reported by Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to identify any individual user of our site.
