Spamming is where advertisements or marketing related materials are communicated to you either orally or in writing in an unsolicited manner and without your consent.

Nestlé websites give you the option to receive marketing information by e-mail. Every e-mail sent by Nestlé will give you the option to stop receiving any form of marketing materials at anytime.

If for some reason you believe you have received SPAM from a Nestlé Malaysia company please inform us immediately. For contact details please see Question 6.
