Nestlé respects your right to privacy in the area of online communications when you use our Websites and communicate with us electronically. We take every measure needed to ensure the security of the personal data you transmit to us.
We describe below the data protection principles applied by Nestlé in France, governing the use of the Internet and other electronic communications networks. These principles apply to all processing of the data of the various companies belonging to the Nestlé group in France.
Nespresso France SAS is responsible for the processing of your personal data for the site http://www.nespresso.com.
We have reflected on a number of essential questions concerning the personal data you entrust to Nestlé to which, in our opinion, you would like an answer. The answers will inform you of your rights concerning the personal data that you transmit and with respect to the measures taken by Nestlé to ensure its confidentiality and security. We hope that you will find this information useful.
For any question concerning your personal data or the method used to process it, please contact Nespresso France SAS at the address indicated below in Question 4.
Q1 What personal data does Nestlé collect through this site and how does it do this?
R We only collect the personal data that YOU are willing to communicate to us and that we need in order to offer you our services and to improve them. We collect direct personal data, such as the name, address and email address, as well as indirect data, such as cookies and data associated with the connection and systems.
You will communicate to us your email address, your name, your telephone number, etc., in order to receive further information on our products, to participate in our contests and our surveys, or simply, to be notified of the most recent news concerning our brands.
We also keep the data that you communicate to us concerning the nature of your orders, in order more effectively to adapt our selections or our recommendations to your preferences or needs.
We warrant to you that Nestlé takes every measure required in order to preserve the confidentiality and security of the personal data that you transmit to us.
Q2 How do the Nestlé group companies in France ensure the security of my personal data?
R Nestlé takes every measure required to preserve the confidentiality and security of your personal data. These data can only be consulted by the employees of the Nestlé group in France, the personnel of the subcontractor companies (suppliers of hosting services), or the authorised employees of our business partners (who have undertaken contractually to preserve the security of all information). All employees of Nestlé in France who have access to your personal data are bound to comply with the Nestlé policy on the protection of personal data and all our sub-contractors’ employees who have access to these data are similarly bound. In addition, a contract has been entered into with the sub-contractor companies that have access to your personal data, so as to ensure the security of these data. To ensure the protection of your personal data, Nestlé maintains a secure computer environment and applies appropriate measures to prevent unauthorised access (hacking).
See question 3: "Does Nestlé disclose my personal data and why?"
Q3 Does Nestlé disclose my personal data and why?
R Nestlé will never share your personal data with any third-party (outside the Nestlé Group), that could potentially use it for the purposes of direct response advertising, unless you have expressly authorised us to do so.
Please refer to questions 4 and 7 regarding Nestlé's policy on (1) direct response advertising by email, (2) your right to ask Nestlé at any time NOT TO contact you by direct response advertising email and (3) your right to the rectification or deletion of your personal information in our files.
The Nestlé company responsible for data processing can communicate your personal data to other companies belonging to the Nestlé Group. You can also send your personal data to third parties, but only in the following circumstances, which are strictly limited:
We may transmit your personal data to third parties (in particular to our hosting providers) who help us to manage our site. Certain of these third parties may be located outside France. Please refer to question 5 - "To which country will my personal data be sent and why?” Regardless of the circumstances, these third parties must ensure at all times the same level of security of your personal information as provided by Nestlé France and, if applicable, they are bound by a contract, enforceable by law, to preserve the confidentiality and security of your personal information and to process this information only in accordance with the specific instructions of Nespresso France SAS.
We may also communicate your personal information to official entities or agencies, if: we are required to do so by law, or if we believe, in the best possible faith, that such an action is reasonably necessary within the scope of legal proceedings; to respond to any complaint or legal action; or to protect the rights of the Nestlé group or those of its clients and consumers.
In exceptional circumstances we may communicate your personal information to potential purchasers of a Nestlé business. In this case, we shall obtain contractual assurance that this information will be kept confidential and secure under conditions consistent with applicable local laws.
Q4 How can I ascertain, verify, modify or delete the personal data that I have communicated?
R You have the right to ask the Nestlé group companies in France to provide you with all the information they keep on you. You can also ask for your personal data to be deleted, modified or corrected, by sending:
a letter to:
Nespresso France SAS
Service Données Personnelles
1 Boulevard Pasteur
by calling our Customer Service Department,
on 0800 55 52 53 (free call if made from a fixed line)
by email, in the “Contact” section on http://www.nespresso.com
Q5 To which countries will my personal data be sent and why?
R Nestlé is an international group and your personal data may be transferred abroad, in particular, to companies of the group located in different countries. This may be to countries that have laws that ensure a level of data protection that differs from the level ensured by the laws of the country in which you communicate this data. Nestlé takes appropriate measures to maintain the security of personal information during the transfer and at the time of receipt of this information.
The servers that enable the sites of our brands to operate can be located outside the country from which you access them. Our main hosting provider is located in the United States (except for Nespresso France SAS, whose hosting company is located in Switzerland). This provider is bound by a contract that ensures a high level of confidentiality of data protection and requires (among other clauses) that it will only act on the instructions of Nestlé and that it will continuously implement all the necessary technical measures to maintain the security of personal data.
The server that provides access to the site http://www.nespresso.com is located in Switzerland. Our hosting services provider is bound by a contract that provides for this same high level of personal data protection.
Q6 COOKIES (Tracking technique) – How and why does Nestlé use these?
R Nestlé uses "cookies" tracking technology to collect information such as the type of browser and operating system, reference page, path followed on the site, the name of the Internet access supplier, etc., in order to gain a better understanding of our visitors and their use of our site. Cookies help us to modify our site based on your needs.
Nestlé keeps the information collected by cookies in a format that does not enable personal identification. This type of information will not be disclosed outside the Nestlé group. It will not be used for unsolicited communications.
The cookies registered on your computer do not contain the name, but rather, an IP address. Once the user session has been interrupted, the information contained in the cookies is no longer available to Nestlé.
We recommend that you ensure that your computer asks you whether or not you wish to accept cookies. You can configure your computer in order for it to notify you prior to accepting cookies, or you can simply reject these. If you do so, you will not be able to have access to all the functionalities of the sites for which you rejected these. You do not need cookies to browse through most of this site or the other Nestlé sites. Remember that if you use different computers in different places you must ensure that each browser is suitably configured to reflect your preferences for cookies.
Q7 Electronic marketing - What is SPAM and what is Nestlé's position on this point?
R SPAM is defined as the sending of emails that contain advertising or commercial information without your consent.
Nestlé does not send SPAM emails; moreover, we use anti-SPAM tools to protect our employees. Sending emails without peoples’ consent is illegal in France (the French Act 2004-575 of 21 June 2004, “Trust in the Digital Economy”/ “Pour la Confiance dans l ‘Economie Numérique"). Nestlé will not use your personal data (including your email address) for direct marketing communications or for other purposes, unless you have given us your express permission to do so. This is what is called an OPT-IN consent (save for a legal derogation for the use of Op-Out).
Nestlé does not share your personal information with an outside company that could use it for SPAM emails.
The Nestlé sites enable you to receive information from our company by email. Each email sent by Nestlé offers you the option to stop the sending of these emails at any time.
If you think that you have received a SPAM email from Nestlé, please inform us of this immediately at the following address: http://www.nespresso.com, in the “Contact” section.
Q8 For how long are my personal data kept?
R We remind you that you have the right to have your personal data deleted at any time. Please refer to question 4 – “How can I ascertain, verify, modify or delete the personal data that I have communicated?”
If you have not requested the deletion of your personal data from our servers, Nestlé can keep the personal data that you have communicated to us via our website in its database. Your personal data will be kept only for the time that is reasonably necessary to reply to a question, resolve problems, supply new services, or improve existing services and to satisfy applicable legal requests. This means that we can keep your personal data for some time after you have ceased using a Nestlé service or the Internet site. Thereafter, your personal data will be deleted from all the Nestlé databases.
Q9 What is Nestlé's policy on children using and communicating with our Internet sites?
R We believe that it is extremely important to protect the privacy of children accessing the Internet and we encourage parents or guardians to spend time with them in order to participate in and manage their online activities.
We do not intentionally collect the personal data of children below the age of 13, except as regards our Websites intended for children of this age. Personal data are registered on these sites in accordance with laws and regulations in force. If parents or guardians give their consent for the child to provide his or her personal data, we will only ask what is necessary in order for the child to participate in the programme for which (s)he is registering.
Internet Sites designed for children
Message for children under the age of 18
If you are under the age of 18, we advise you to speak with your parents or guardian BEFORE providing personal information on the Nestlé sites. If you are not sure you have understood everything on this page, you should ask one of your parents or guardian to help you.

You can verify, modify or delete your child’s personal data at any time. You can also request the deletion of the data concerning your children by sending the request by email/letter/fax to the address given in the contacts indicated in question 4-"How can I ascertain, verify, modify or delete the personal data that I have communicated?"
Q10 Does Nestlé create links to other sites (outside Nestlé) and in this case, what happens to my personal data?
R Nestlé creates links to other sites to give you the option of obtaining interesting information that is often related to Nestlé. These sites are not under our control and are not covered by our personal data processing policy. If you go to other sites by using these links, the persons responsible for these sites can request your personal data. Make sure that their personal data protection policy is acceptable to you prior to providing any personal information. To the full extent possible we attempt to ensure that the sites to which we link have equivalent protection measures, although we cannot provide a guarantee regarding their activities, and their personal data protection policy.
Q11 What happens to my personal data when I send an email from Nestlé to someone else?
R Certain of our Websites can offer you the option to send the address of a Web page by email to another person. In order for this function to be activated, it is possible that we will have to obtain your email address or the email addresses of the persons to whom you wish to send the Web page. The email addresses obtained in this way are only used in order to reply to your request. They are not stored and are deleted immediately after your request has been satisfied.
Q12 What happens to my personal data if I participate in an online survey organised by Nestlé on its site?
R From time to time, we can ask visitors to our Websites to respond to a survey. In general, these surveys concern the content of the Website, our products, or product categories. It is possible that we may ask you for your age or for your age bracket, your gender, as well as other information that cannot be used to identify you. For these surveys, we may add to your answers the information obtained via cookies, although you will not be asked to provide any information enabling you to be identified.
The personal data collected are not associated with the personal data that you may have already supplied to us. The personal data collected during online surveys and studies are reserved for Nestlé's internal use, although the overall information collected (without identifying the person) may be shared with other companies.
Q13 What is the single registration?
R In order to facilitate the registration process, we use a single registration tool on many Nestlé websites. With this tool, when you register, the information that you have communicated to us can be automatically included in other Nestlé Websites. Your personal data are protected and in all instances we ask you, prior to adding your name to a mailing list, for your express or "active" (OPT-IN) consent to send you information on the Websites of the Nestlé group companies in France, other than the Nestlé company responsible for this site’s data processing. Please refer to question 16 – “Which terms have a legal meaning in this personal data protection policy?"
Q14 Can Nestlé modify the conditions of this personal data protection policy?
R Nestlé may occasionally make modifications and corrections to this personal data protection policy. Please consult this Policy on a regular basis in order to be informed of the modifications made and how this may concern you.
Q15 What is the address at which I can contact Nestlé if I have other questions concerning my personal data?

An individual is a natural person who uses the Products for his or her own personal needs and those of his/her family and friends.
A. PROVISIONS COMMON TO ALL SALES
1.1 The Products are offered for sale within the limits of available stocks.
1.2 The minimum quantity per order of coffee in a store is set at one case of 10 capsules.
1.3 Nespresso retains ownership of the Products delivered until full payment of the invoices and it reserves the right to suspend delivery in the event of a late payment, until the entire amount owed has been paid.

2. Right to return (withdrawal)
2.1 Regardless of the distribution channel used, you have 14 days from the receipt of the Product in which to notify us of your wish to return it to us if it does not suit you, and then 14 days as of this notification to return it, without the need to indicate the reason for the return.
2.2 As a health and safety measure, only the following Products will be taken back: products that have not been used, that are properly protected, in their original packaging, intact and in perfect condition, in condition to be resold, accompanied by any accessories, user manuals and documentation, as well as the corresponding invoice. These conditions are cumulative.
2.3 Subject to the above, Nespresso will reimburse you by bank transfer for the price of the Products returned and the dispatching expenses invoiced (on the basis of standard delivery expenses), if these have already been paid, within 14 days following the date on which you exercise your right of return. You must pay return carriage.
3. Price, invoicing and payment
3.1 For any information concerning the prices of the Products, their characteristics and carriage costs, you can contact the Nespresso stores and ask us questions by mail, by telephone, or via the Nespresso site, on the numbers and at the addresses mentioned Article B.2 below.
3.2 The invoiced prices, which include all taxes but not delivery costs, corresponding to the Products that you order, are those in force on the date of the purchase, if the latter takes place in a store, or on the date of the transmission of the order, in the case of a remote sale . Invoices are payable at the time of purchase.
3.3 In the event that the amounts due are not paid by the due date, a contractual late payment compensation of 10% of the amount of the sums due shall be demanded, with a minimum of €15 per amount owed. This compensation may not exceed €40, regardless of the total amount still due.
4. Delivery costs
Costs for delivery in metropolitan France are those in force on the date of the transmission of the order, as these appear on the rates applicable on this date. Unless otherwise indicated, they shall be paid by you and included separately in the invoice. With respect to capsules, the fixed delivery fee is valid for a dispatch of up to 500 capsules per dispatch. Above this figure, Nespresso will send you an estimate.

5. Delivery conditions
Nespresso will endeavour to make its deliveries in metropolitan France within 2 working days of receipt of the order, to the address of your choice, or to one of the drop-off points available during the business hours of the merchant selected. Nespresso offers a quick delivery option, in 24 hours (on business days) by special dispatch or by courier in certain areas in metropolitan France and during certain time slots, subject to the payment of an additional fee. You may be asked for proof of your identity. If you ask for a delivery method that is different from the one used normally by Nespresso, you will be invoiced for the additional cost. The risks of loss or damage to the Products are transferred to you at the time of delivery.
6. Inspection of the Products
It will be your responsibility to verify the number and condition of the Products at the time these are received, and, in the event of damaged or missing items, to express the customary reservations to the carrier and to inform Nespresso of these reservations, within 7 days of receipt (in which case you must keep the invoice and the signed delivery slip). Nespresso will then send you identical replacement products or it will reimburse you.

In order to comply with the contract, the product must be fit for the use normally expected of a similar product. The action resulting from the non-conformity is limited to two years from the delivery of the product good."

Any dispute regarding the execution of an order and/or the interpretation of these standard terms shall be governed by French law. In the event of a dispute regarding the interpretation or performance of the agreements entered into between you and Nespresso, an amicable solution shall be sought prior to the initiation of any legal proceedings. The prior search for an amicable solution shall not interrupt the time limits for application of the warranty. In the absence of an amicable agreement, the competent court shall, depending on the applicant's preference, and in accordance with the law, be the court of the place in which the defendant is located, or the court of the place of the effective delivery of the Product(s), or the court of the place where the service is rendered.
