MORE INFORMATION FOR INDIVIDUALS FROM THE EEA AND SWITZERLAND 

 

Transfers outside the EEA 

We might transfer your personal data to countries outside the EEA (e.g. other Nespresso/Nestlé entities or ad-hoc in-country partners) including to countries which have different data protection standards to those which apply in the EEA. Where information is transferred outside the EEA, and where this is to a country that is not subject to an adequacy decision by the EU Commission, data is adequately protected by EU Commission approved standard contractual clauses, an appropriate Privacy Shield certification or a vendor's Processor Binding Corporate Rules. A copy of the relevant mechanism can be provided for your review on request to the contact details set out above. 

 

What rights do I have? 

Where provided by law, you, your successors, representatives and/or proxies have the right to access, review and request a physical or electronic copy of information held about you to correct, delete or restrict (stop any active) processing of your personal data. You also have the right to request information on the source of your Personal Data. These rights can be exercised by sending us an email to Application.SustainabilityHQ@ch.nestle.com or writing to us at Nespresso, Avenue d’Ouchy 4, 1006 Lausanne, Switzerland, attaching a copy of your ID or equivalent details (where requested by us and permitted by law). If the request is submitted by a person other than you, without providing evidence that the request is legitimately made on your behalf, the request will be rejected.

In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal data in some circumstances – in particular, where we don’t have to process the data to meet a contractual or other legal requirement, or where we are using the data for sending you direct marketing such as the Newsletter of Information about our programs. 

These rights may be limited, for example if fulfilling your request would reveal personal data about another person, where they would infringe the rights of a third party (including our rights) or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law to keep or have compelling legitimate interests in keeping. Relevant exemptions are included in both the GDPR and in its implementing legislation. We will inform you of relevant exemptions we rely upon when responding to any request you make. 

To exercise any of these rights, or to obtain other information, you can get in touch with us using the details set out above. If you have unresolved concerns, you have the right to complain to an EU data protection authority where you live, work, or where you believe a breach may have occurred.
