3. Disclaimed liability

Some information we ask you for directly, but other information is collected automatically. All information collected automatically is stored in an aggregate form and can not be used to identify you as a specific individual. To provide additional functionality on our websites, answer your enquiries, and improve our products, we occasionally ask you to provide us with information that can at times be personally identifiable and sensitive.

As a result, information gathered by us can be divided into two main categories: personally identifiable and sensitive information, and aggregated visitor statistics.

We do not link aggregated visitor statistics with personally identifiable and sensitive information.

4. Links to other websites

When you visit one of our websites, we automatically collect general information about your computer and its location, as well as where you came from. This information can not be used to identify you as an individual. This information is only used in aggregate form to tell us where our visitors come from, what they look at, and where they spend the most time. This allows us to improve our websites to create a better experience for you.

Information we gather automatically:

  • Your referrer (i.e. where you came from, e.g. Google)
  • Date and time of your visit
  • Your regional and language settings (to determine which country you are in)
  • Operating System (Windows, OS X, Linux etc.)
  • Browser & Browser Version (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Safari etc.)
  • Screen Resolution (1280x1024, 1024x768, etc.)
  • JavaScript support
  • Java support
  • First party Cookie support (Whether you allow us to place a cookie on your computer)
  • Visitor ID (Provided by a cookie we place on your computer when possible, helps us measure how many visitors return to our websites)
  • IP address (Your computers address on the internet)
  • The title of the page you are viewing
  • The URL of the page you are viewing

5. Alterations

At times, we need to collect more personal information about you. Some of our websites might require you to register in order to log in, in which case you will be required to provide personal information about yourself to us. We might also collect your name and email address to enter you into a prize draw for a survey that you fill out on our site. We might ask you for information such as your age and occupation to better understand our visitors, and to improve your visitor experience. Typically, the information we ask for includes some of the following, but this list is not exhaustive:

  • Contact details, such as your name and e-mail/ postal address
  • Basic information about you, such as age and gender
  • Health and Treatment data
  • Other information may also be asked, when relevant, and could include information about lifestyle or the household you live in as these impact aspects of managing medical conditions.

In any case, whenever we ask you for any personally information that can be used to identify you as an individual, we will always provide an explanation as to why we gather the information, how we gather it, how we store it, and how we plan on treating and using it.

We will only gather this information if you specifically agree to ‘opt-in’, i.e. you explicitly give us your consent to collect this information from you. We will not gather any personally identifiable information from you unless you specifically agree to provide it to us.

We will only gather and store personally identifiable information for the purpose stated during the gathering process. When we finish processing your information for the stated purpose, we will erase and destroy it to ensure your privacy.

There is always a lot of information that a company can ask you for, but Novo Nordisk will only ask for information where there is a clear and necessary need for that information, which is clearly and adequately explained to you. You will always have a choice as to what information you provide. Also, you can write to us and ask for a summary of information we have that relates to you or, if the site does not provide the opportunity for you to directly edit information you provided, contact us to have information deleted or modified. How we gather information

6. Copyright and use of content

There are three main ways in which we gather information. They will be explained below.

7. Privacy and use of questions and comments

As with most other web sites, our servers keep logs over which files were downloaded, and which computers downloaded those files. Information gathered by our servers can be analysed and used to create aggregate visitor statistics which we use for evaluating and improving our sites.

8. Governing Law

We use a javascript based visitor tracking solution called ClientStep developed by a Danish company called Instadia . This software uses cookies on your computer together with small javascripts on our pages that are executed every time you click somewhere on our site. We use this software for tracking clickstream data and analysing various patterns of user behaviour, which is vital to our understanding of our visitor's needs and interest, and our ability to improve our sites.

Aggregate visitor information is sent by your computer to secure servers owned by Instadia and located in Denmark. Only Novo Nordisk and Instadia are allowed to access this data. Sale or transfer of any data to a third party is strictly forbidden.
