The Foundation for the National Institutes of Health to Launch the Baby Connectome Project with Support from Wyeth Nutrition
Florham Park, NJ (June 11, 2015) – Wyeth Nutrition, a global leader in infant nutrition, and the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) today announced a five-year partnership that will provide significantly more detailed views of the brains of healthy children 0 - 5 years old. The Baby Connectome Project (BCP), a research initiative of the National Institutes of Health, will lead to better understanding of how the brain develops from birth through early childhood and will uncover factors contributing to healthy brain development. The findings will be published for the scientific community, providing an unprecedented view of how a healthy brain develops and works. Click here to find out more...
Prior to the turn of the twentieth century, women who could not breastfeed did not have nutritionally suitable alternatives for their infants. Dr. Henry John Gerstenberger, a dedicated pediatrician, identified the need for change and in 1915 he began a quest to develop a formula that could be easily prepared while fully meeting the nutritional needs of infants.
This quest kicked off the history of Wyeth Nutrition, and Dr. Gerstenberger’s visionary spirit lives on today. For 100 years, we’ve been at the forefront of innovation as modern infant formula has evolved. Our past is distinguished by scientific milestones in the advancement of nutrition for infants, children, and expecting mothers all over the world.
Wyeth Nutrition and Foundation for the National Institutes of Health recently entered into a landmark five-year partnership called the Baby Connectome Project (BCP), which aims to better understand how the brain develops from birth through early childhood and uncover contributing factors to healthy brain development.
The Wyeth Nutrition Science Center shares science-based information with healthcare providers to advance global nutrition science and enhance the nutrition of mothers and children while improving future health outcomes.

However, Nestlé may collect personal data about children below the age of 12 years of age from the parent or custodian directly and therefore with their explicit consent.

Interest-based advertising - to serve you advertisements tailored to your interests. One way Nestlé does this is to match activities or information collected on Nestlé Sites with data collected about you on third party sites (i.e. data-matching).

- Website viral features
Nestlé may use your personal data to offer you website viral features, such as a tell-a-friend program, where you can share certain news, product information, promotions or other content with family and friends.

5.3 Partners and joint promotions

Your personal data will only be shared with another company if you have opted in to receive information directly from that company. Nestlé encourages you to read the privacy notice of any such company before sharing personal data. If you do not want your personal data to be collected by or shared with a company other than Nestlé, you can always choose not to participate in such activity.

7.1 What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the website.
7.3 What types of cookies may be used on Nestlé Sites?
We may use the following types of cookies on Nestlé Sites:
Session cookies - These are temporary cookie files which are erased when you close your browser. When you restart your browser and go back to the site that created that cookie, the website will treat you as a new visitor.
Persistent cookies – These cookies stay on your browser until you delete them manually or until your browser deletes them based on the duration period set within the cookie. These cookies will recognize you as a return visitor.
Necessary cookies - Necessary cookies are strictly necessary for the operation of a Nestlé Site. They enable you to navigate around the site and use our features.
Cookies that send information to us - These are the cookies that we set on a Nestlé Site and they can only be read by that site. This is known as a “First Party” cookie.
We also place cookies on Nestlé advertisements which are placed on other websites owned by third parties (e.g. Facebook). We obtain information via those cookies when you click on or interact with the advertisement. In this situation Nestlé is placing a “Third Party” cookie. Nestlé may use the information obtained by these cookies to serve you with advertising that is relevant and of interest to you based on your past online behaviour.
Cookies that send information to other companies - These are cookies that are set on a Nestlé Site by our partner companies (e.g. Facebook or advertisers). They may use the data collected from these cookies to anonymously target advertising to you on other websites, based on your visit to the Nestlé Site. For example, if you use a social widget (e.g. the Facebook icon) on a Nestlé Site, it will record your “share” or “like”. Facebook (as the company setting the cookie) will collect the data.
7.4 Other similar technologies
Nestlé Sites also make use of other tracking technologies including IP addresses, log files and web beacons, which also help us tailor Nestlé Sites to your personal needs.
An IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer every time you log on to the Internet. We may record IP Addresses for the following purposes: (i) troubleshoot technical concerns, (ii) maintain website safety and security (iii) better understand how our websites are utilized, and (iv) to better tailor content to your needs depending on the country you are in.
We (or a third party on our behalf) may collect information in the form of logs files that record website activity and gather statistics about a user’s browsing habits. These entries are generated anonymously, and help us gather (among other things) (i) a user’s browser type and operating system, (ii) information about a user’s session (such as the URL they came from, the date and time they visited our website, and which pages they've viewed on our website and for how long), and, (iii) other similar navigational or click-stream data (e.g. site traffic reporting and unique visitor counts).
We may use web beacons (or clear GIFs) on the Nestlé Sites. Web beacons (also known as “web bugs”) are small strings of code that provide a method of delivering a graphic image on a web page for the purpose of transferring data back to us. We use web beacon information for a variety of purposes, including information as to how a user responds to email campaigns (e.g. the time the email is opened, where the user links to from the email), site traffic reporting, unique visitor counts, advertising and email auditing and reporting, and personalization.
7.5 Manage your cookies/preferences
You should ensure that your computer setting reflects whether you are happy to accept cookies or not. You can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, or you can simply set it to refuse them. You do not need to have cookies on to use or navigate through many parts of Nestlé Sites although you may not have access to all the features on Nestlé Sites if you do so. See the 'help' button on your browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox) for how you can do this. Remember that if you use different computers in different locations, you will need to ensure that each browser is adjusted to suit your cookie preferences.
As a web beacon forms part of a webpage, it is not possible to ‘opt-out’ but you can render them ineffective by opting out of the cookies they set.
Additionally, where available, you can exercise your choice in allowing for cookies to be placed on your computer or to opt-out of cookies by visiting the following sites and selecting which company’s cookies you would like to opt out of:http://www.aboutads.info/choices/#completed or http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/
In order to keep your personal data secure, Nestlé has implemented a number of security measures, including:
Please note that these protections do not apply to personal data you choose to share in public areas such as on community websites.
Nestlé will only retain your personal data for as long as it is necessary for the stated purpose, taking into account also our need to answer queries or resolve problems, provide improved and new services, and comply with legal requirements under applicable laws.
This means that we may retain your personal data for a reasonable period after your last interaction with us. When the personal data that we collect is no longer required in this way, we destroy or delete it in a secure manner.
Nestlé acts as “data controller” for the personal data it processes in the framework of this Privacy Notice. If you have any questions or comments regarding this Privacy Notice or Nestlé’s personal data collection practices, please contact us by:
