Nestlé UK Details

The following tables categorise and describe the various cookies used within Nestlé UK websites:

Necessary Cookies

Cookies which have been judged to be absolutely necessary for the running of a website. These cookies are exempt from EU regulations.

Name Purpose Websites
ASP.NET_Sessionid Nestlé web sites use one specific cookie which is essential for its software (ASP.NET) to work properly: ASP.NET_SessionId. This cookie is used to create a session ID for the user, so that the system itself can identify the user as a unique and individual user, distinct from anyone else looking at the website. This information is not used or stored outside Nestlé systems, and is held only temporarily while the user is accessing account pages and other pages which require unique and secure access. Without this cookie, such access could not remain secure, so it is very important.
Cookie Law implementation: nimconsent This cookie is used to remember cookie preferences.

Privacy Policy change alert: nimprivacy This cookie is used to alert the user to changes to the website master privacy policy. The cookie counts how many times the alert has been displayed, to a maximum of 5 times.


Functional Cookies

Cookies which are set up and managed by the website itself to improve the functionality of the site. No third party is involved.
