Please read these terms of use carefully. If you use the C&G baby club website at https://www.cgbabyclub.co.uk/ (the “Site”) then you are agreeing to these rules, including our House rules for our Forums and C&G baby club Friends (the “Terms and Conditions”).

General

  1. This Site is produced by Nutricia Limited t/a Danone Nutricia Early Life Nutrition, Newmarket House, Newmarket Avenue, White Horse Business Park, Trowbridge, Wiltshire, BA14 0XQ (registered company number 00275552) (“Nutricia”), for your information, education and communication. One of our brands is Cow & Gate who provide Cow & Gate baby club and in these terms and conditions we refer to ourselves as “C&G baby club”.
  2. The Site and its contents are designed to comply with UK laws and regulations and are intended for use by UK residents only. The C&G baby club makes no representation that any information contained in this Site is relevant or appropriate to other locations. If you are calling from outside the UK we advise that you speak to your local healthcare professional if you have any questions regarding your pregnancy or baby.
  3. This Site offers you the option of viewing information about Cow & Gate products. If you choose to view this information, you are accepting that Cow & Gate is supplying this information at your individual request for information and education purposes.

Members of C&G baby club

  1. As part of your registration with the C&G baby club, you will receive information and offers from Cow & Gate, relating to their products, in the way you requested which may be by post and/or email.
  2. The C&G Baby Club asks for your email address, first name, surname, postcode, and due date (or baby’s birth date) as mandatory details when you sign up to the C&G baby club. This is to help ensure that we can identify you. This also allows us to tailor our communications to your needs and also means that if you contact us with queries about your registration details, it makes it possible for us to identify you, answer your query, or amend your details for you. If you would like to give us your telephone number, we may use it to follow up on the service you have received via the Careline or to conduct market research.
  3. Registration with the C&G Baby Club gives you a ‘single sign-up’ that you can also use to access our sister site Cow & Gate. This will not register you for the 5-step Weaning Plan. If you’d like to sign up for the 5-step Weaning Plan, please register here https://www.cowandgate.co.uk/registration.
  4. If you have agreed, your personal details may be shared internally across the Danone Group of companies.
  5. 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).
  6. Once you have completed the registration process, you will have specified your email address (which we use as an ID to uniquely identify you) and a password. We won’t send you any emails without your express permission. You must ensure that you keep your username and password in a safe and secure place and that you do not disclose them to anyone. You will be fully responsible for all activities which occur under your username and password. It is your responsibility to immediately notify us of any unauthorised use of your username and password or any other breach of security as soon as you become aware of it. We reserve the right to require Users to amend usernames and passwords if necessary for security reasons. The username and password that you log in with are personal to you and are not transferable.
  7. All accounts must be registered with a valid personal email address that you access regularly so that, at least, emails about any important changes or information can be sent to you. Accounts registered with someone else’s email address, or with temporary email addresses may be closed without notice. We may require Users to re-validate their account if we believe they have been using an invalid email address. We reserve the right to close accounts if any User is seen to be using proxy IPs (Internet Protocol addresses) in order to attempt to hide the use of multiple C&G baby club accounts, or if a non-UK User pretends to be a UK User, or disrupts any of our services in any way.
  8. Nutricia maintain a “single customer view” of your account which spans CGBabyClub, Cow & Gate, nutrimum, and Aptaclub, whichever you may choose to register with. Consequently, if you alter your details with one brand, we will change those details in your other registrations too. This allows us to make sure that your post and emails don’t go astray, and means you only have to remember to change one of your accounts.
