The only personal information we will ever have is what you have voluntarily given to us.
Why do we request personal information?The main reason we ask for, process, and store your personal information is so we can reply to questions you have for us, via the Contact Us page, when you request a 5 Step Weaning Plan, or to provide a service you directly request.
Cow & Gate or our service providers will collect and store your personal information for purposes which may include:
- To directly provide any services you have requested
- To reply to your questions
- To enable third parties to process and manage your information so we can provide the services you have requested
- For security, administrative and legal purposes
- To update and enhance our website and the services we provide.
- Where you have consented, sharing this information within the Danone Group
- Information may also be shared with external third parties for marketing analysis (in which case information will only be shared for matching purposes and results will be returned on an anonymous and aggregated basis) or for behavioural targeting (in which case information will only be shared on an anonymous and aggregated basis).
Whenever we ask for your personal information we’ll tell you how we intend to use it. We’ll also ask for your explicit consent. Except as set out above, we will not disclose, sell or rent your personal information to any third party unless you have consented to this. If you do consent but later change your mind, you may contact us and we will cease any such activity.
You may opt in to receive marketing communications when you register with the website and you may withdraw that opt-in at any time. Once you have opted in, we will provide the services you have requested by post or e-mail as appropriate. Should you wish to opt out of receiving marketing communications for goods similar to those you have previously purchased from us, please let us know.
Your consentIf you do not wish to communicate with us electronically, you can use any of the other methods described on the Contact Us page.
Any personal information you give us will be used strictly in accordance with current data protection legislation.
