3 Why do we process your personal data?

We process your personal data for the purpose of delivering the newsletter you subscribed to on the Truth About weight website. When you choose to receive the newsletter from your local country, we may also share your email address with Novo Nordisk's affiliate in your country, in the event that the affiliate establishes its own local newsletter account. This enables the affiliate to send you their local newsletter instead of the one from Truth About Weight website. You are not required to provide us with your personal data. If you do not want Novo Nordisk to use your personal data, we will not be able to send you the newsletter.

4 What personal data do we process about you?

For the purposes described above in Section 3, we may process the following types of personal data:

  • Email address

5 Why are we allowed by law to process your personal data?

Our processing of your personal data requires a legal basis. By law, we are allowed to process your personal data described above in Section 4 based on the following legal bases:

  • The processing is necessary for our legitimate interests. The legitimate interest is to be able to send you the newsletter you have subscribed to on the Truth About Weight website.

6 How do we share your personal data?

We may share your personal data with:

  • Suppliers or vendors that assist our company (e.g., consultants, IT service providers, financial institutions, law firms, license partners)
  • Other Novo Nordisk entities (e.g., Novo Nordisk affiliates in other countries)

7 When do we transfer your personal data outside the eu/eaa?

For the purposes described above in Section 3, we transfer your personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA). The level of data protection in certain countries outside the EEA does not conform to the level of data protection for personal data currently applied and enforced within the EEA. 

We therefore use the following safeguards, as required by law, to protect your personal data in case of such transfers:

8 How long will we keep your personal data?

If you have subscribed to the Truth About Weight newsletter, Novo Nordisk will keep your email address to send you such newsletters until you unsubscribe.  You may at any time unsubscribe from the newsletter service by using the unsubscribe function available in every newsletter forwarded to you. Once you unsubscribe, your personal data will be deleted within 30 days.
