Privacy policy

The information we collect

We collect information that can help us improve our websites. Some information we ask you for directly, but other information is collected automatically. All information collected automatically is stored in an aggregate form and cannot be used to identify you as a specific individual. We occasionally ask you for information that can at times be personally identifiable and private.

As a result, information collected by us can be divided into two main categories:

  • Aggregated visitor statistics
  • Identifiable personal information

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

Aggregated visitor statistics

When you visit our website, we automatically collect general information about your computer and its location as well as the website you came from, if applicable. This information cannot be used to identify you as an individual. This information is only used in aggregate form to inform us where our visitors come from, what they look at and act on, and where the most time is spent.

Information we collect automatically:

  • 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)

Identifiable personal information

At times, we need to collect more personal data about you. Some areas/parts of our website might require you to register in order to log in; we might ask you for information such as your age and occupation to better understand the purpose of your visit and to improve your visitor experience.

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

How information is used

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

Novo Nordisk does not intend to collect personally identifiable information from children (a child is defined as being under the age of 18) without permission of the parent or legal guardian.
