Personal Data is information about a living person that affects that person’s privacy and identifies them, whether by itself or together with other information that we possess or of which we are likely to come into possession.
Before you provide us with any Personal Data or otherwise browse our Site, you should read through this Privacy Notice completely and make sure that you are comfortable with our privacy practices.
Please note this Site may contain links to other third party websites. We are only responsible for the privacy practices and security of the information we collect. We recommend that you check the privacy and security policies and procedures of each and every other website you visit.

We may also collect information about you from third party sources, such as from your use of other websites which we operate and from related third parties such as sub-contractors.

We may also match Personal Data that you provide to us directly with other information about you obtained from third party sources (such as social media networks and data brokers).

- to administer our Sites and help improve our products and services;
- to detect and prevent fraud;
- to comply with applicable laws and regulations;
Data protection law requires us to have a legal ground before processing any Personal Data about you. The legal grounds for us processing your Personal Data for the above purposes will typically be because:
• you have provided your consent;
• it is necessary for the performance of a contract with you or to decide whether to enter into a contract with you;
• the processing is necessary for our compliance with a legal or regulatory obligation; and/or
• the processing is in our legitimate interest as a leading personal care corporation.
4. Who We Share Your Personal Data With
We may share information about you with third parties in certain circumstances including in the following situations:
- Sharing Your Information with Partner Companies;
We may ask your permission to share your information with carefully selected outside companies when we believe their products or services may interest you and only to companies we trust and that pass our internal checks, in order to keep your information secure. You may “opt out” of partner offers and programs at any time by updating your User Profile, contacting us or calling 0800 626 008 [(UK Residents) 1800 626 008] [(ROI Residents)] or completing the online form: https://www.pottytraining.co.uk/contact / https://www.pottytraining.ie/contact. Our partners are prohibited from using your contact information for purposes other than presenting relevant offers and programs, and they are required to maintain your contact information in confidence.
- Sharing Your Information with Service Providers;
We may share information with companies or individuals, if necessary, that provide us with services. These services may include, among other things, helping us to provide services that you request, to create or maintain our databases, to research and analyse the people who request products, services, or information from us, to prepare and distribute communications, or to respond to enquiries.
- Law Enforcement and Legal Process;
We may report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we reasonably believe to be unlawful, or that we reasonably believe may aid a law enforcement investigation into unlawful activity (including, notably, when we receive a fair, reasonable and legal request from a law enforcement or regulatory body). In addition, we may release your information to law enforcement agencies if we determine, in our sole judgment, that either you have violated our policies, or the release of your information may protect the rights, property, or safety of Kimberly-Clark, or another person.
- Sharing Your Information as Permitted by Law;
We may share your information with others as required by, or permitted by, law. This may include sharing your information with government entities, or third parties in response to subpoenas, court orders, other legal process, or as we believe is necessary to exercise our legal rights and/or to protect the property or safety of our customers or others (this includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction), to defend against legal claims that have been brought against us, or to defend against possible legal claims that we determine in our sole discretion might be brought against us.
- Blogs, Online Postings, and Testimonials;
We may decide to allow users to share comments, postings, testimonials, or other information. If you choose to submit such information to us, the information that you submit may be available generally to the public. Information that you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them.
- Business Transaction;
In the event that we, or any portion of our assets, are acquired or we undertake a business or asset acquisition or prospective acquisition process, your information may be transferred to the acquiring company or other entity surviving such a transaction.
- Interest-Based Advertising;
Kimberly-Clark participates in interest-based (online behaviour) advertising. This means that a third party may use technology, such as a cookie on your browser or a web beacon, to identify you on our website so that they can provide advertising about products and services tailored to your interest. You may see advertising on our website tailored to how you browse or shop, or you may see advertising for Kimberly-Clark products on other websites based on your browsing behaviour across websites. Kimberly-Clark voluntarily participates in the Digital Advertising Alliance self-regulation program. As part of this self-regulation program, Kimberly-Clark supports deployment of the Advertising Option icon (“Ad Choices”) in partnership with Evidon. For information on how to opt-out of interest-based advertising, please see our ‘Cookie Notice’ at paragraph 12 below.
- Other Third Parties;
We may share non-Personal Data with other third parties that are not described above. When we do so we may aggregate or de-identify the information so that a third party would not be likely to link data to you, your computer, or your device. Aggregation means that we combine the non-Personal Data of numerous people together so that the data does not relate to any one person. De-identify means that we attempt to remove or change certain pieces of information that might be used to link data to a particular person.
5. Managing Your Privacy Through Your User Profile

7. Transfer of Personal Data
Your Personal Data may be transferred outside of the country from which it was originally provided and may be shared with our trusted third parties located in jurisdictions outside European Economic Area (EEA) and the UK which have no data protection laws or laws that are less strict compared with those in Europe. Whenever we transfer Personal Data outside of the EEA or the UK, we take legally required steps to make sure that adequate safeguards are in place to protect your Personal Data and to make sure it is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Notice. If you are located in the EEA or the UK, you can contact us https://www.pottytraining.co.uk/contact / https://www.pottytraining.ie/contact for a copy of the safeguards which we have put in place to protect your Personal Data and privacy rights in these circumstances.

Data protection law gives rights to individuals in respect of Personal Data that organisations hold about them. You may:

12. Cookie Notice
Like many companies, Kimberly-Clark uses “cookie” technology on our Site. Cookies are information stored on your computer by your browser while you are visiting a particular site. When you log in, the cookie tells us whether you visited us before or are a new visitor, and it enables us to learn which advertisements bring users to our Site. We do use the cookie to help us identify Site features in which you have the greatest interest so that we can provide more of what you may want. If you choose, you can set your browser to reject cookies or you can manually delete individual cookies or all of the cookies on your computer by following your browser’s help file directions. However, if you do not enable cookies to be received by your web browser, you may have trouble accessing some of the pages and certain features on this Site.
Please note that some web browsers and devices permit you to broadcast a preference that you not be “tracked” online. At this time we do not respond to these requests or modify your experience based upon whether such a signal is broadcast.
We also use web beacons on our website to collect certain data. A web beacon is an electronic file on a website page that allows us to count and recognize users who have visited that page. Among other things, a web beacon can be used in HTML-formatted email to determine responses to our communications and measure their effectiveness – for instance, if you get an email from us and click on a link in that email to go to our Site. You can generally avoid web beacons in email by turning off HTML display and displaying only the text portion of your email.
As you enter our Sites, we capture and retain the IP address of the device you are using, such as a personal computer or a mobile device, plus your log-in information, browser type and version, operating system and platform and any plug-ins you are using.
You may also choose to download mobile applications offered by Kimberly-Clark. If you use our mobile applications, the mobile application may collect certain information automatically, such as the type of mobile device you use, the temporary or persistent unique device identifiers (sometimes called UDID) and information about the way you use the applications. The mobile application may also collect certain information you voluntarily provide, such as product information when you scan a bar code, and transactional information, such as when you make a purchase or respond to an offer. Our mobile applications may collect precise information about the location of your device, such as when you search for a store. However, you must first provide permission through your device before the application obtains such location information from technologies like GPS, Wi-Fi, or cell tower proximity. Mobile service providers may collect device-specific information, such as a unique device identifier, when you use our Site or one of our mobile applications.

Huggies® Pull-Ups® and our makers Kimberly-Clark are committed to making our products more sustainable. And we’re proud of what we have achieved so far; for instance, Kimberly-Clark has been named as one of the ‘World’s Most Ethical Companies’ by the Ethisphere Institute for 2 years in a row.
Disposable potty training pants provide a safe, convenient and hygienic way of helping parents to enjoy day-to-day life with their toddlers, while ensuring that they receive great skin care in the most comfortable way. And, although reusable and disposable nappies have been shown to have an equivalent environmental performance, it’s important for us to continue to work on reducing the impact of our Huggies® Pull-Ups® products on the environment.
Here are just some of the ways we are working towards making this happen:
Huggies® Pull-Ups® aims to reduce carbon emissions and cut waste by using lightweight materials, increasing manufacturing efficiency, reducing packaging and transport impacts and using certified natural or recycled materials where possible.
Huggies® Pull-Ups® training pants are made from around one quarter natural materials and Huggies® wipes are made from two thirds natural materials.
The fluffy absorbent fibres in Huggies® Pull-Ups® training pants and wipes are made from wood pulp sourced only from suppliers with a sustainable forestry certification - nothing comes from forest areas requiring protection such as primary tropical rainforests.
Huggies® Pull-Ups® has been working towards reducing carbon emissions, increasing energy efficiency, and cutting out waste since 1995 when Kimberly-Clark launched its first environmental vision programme.
We are working hard to reduce our environmental impact by partnering with a number of European environmental organizations in order to measure and lower our footprint.
All the brown boxes used to transport Huggies® Pull-Ups® nappies and wipes from our plants to retailers are made from 80% recycled material.
Huggies® Pull-Ups® manufacturing sites all aim to send no manufacturing waste to landfill. We met this goal in our European mills in 2012.
Kimberly-Clark has and will continue to design its Huggies® Pull-Ups® products to be compatible with all major waste streams.
 Study by the UK Environment Agency, Department of Environment Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and Waste Resource Action Programme (WRAP) (update released in October 2008) - "An updated lifecycle assessment study for disposable and reusable nappies" – concluded that overall no system clearly had a better or worse environmental performance.
