Mars Home page

Mars’ websites may feature information on our pet food,food and other products, promotions, sweepstakes, contests, entertainment and other features, information about our Company, or opportunities to apply for jobs or to shop online. Most of our websites are intended primarily for adult consumers. In fact, under our global food marketing code, Mars has confirmed its intent to direct marketing messages for confectionery and food products primarily to adults and, where brand-appropriate, to teens. Our food products are not advertised in other media in an effort to interest children under 13 in our websites. However, Mars has also implemented reasonable methods to restrict the ability of children under 13 to download screensavers and games or access other features on certain sites, consistent with our commitment to direct our messages primarily to adults or teens. 

Different jurisdictions define a "child" somewhat differently for privacy and other purposes, based on their own laws On websites where we may collect information from children, as defined by local law, and consistent with our marketing and other policies, we incorporate special notices urging them to get parental permission before providing any information or ordering products. We may ask visitors to enter a birthdate to restrict those who are underage from accessing certain sites, areas or features, and use cookies to prevent them from changing their age.  We may ask them to provide a  parent's e-mail address so that we can contact the parent to notify them of our privacy policy, and/or obtain parental consent where required.We also urge you to monitor and supervise your children's Internet activities. 

Please review our Privacy Policy for detailed information on our information collection and handling policies.
