General information collection

Novo Nordisk collects non-personally identifiable information in aggregate form to track data such as the total number of visits to our website, the number of visitors to each page of our website, the general geographical areas from where those visitors accessed our website and the domain names of our visitors' internet service providers.

Use of IP Addresses

An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a set of numbers that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you log on to your internet service provider or through your organisation's local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN). Web servers automatically identify your computer by the IP address assigned to it during your session online.

Novo Nordisk, or third-party companies acting on behalf of Novo Nordisk, may collect IP addresses for the purposes of systems administration and to audit the use of our website. We do not ordinarily link a user's IP address to personally identifiable information of that user, which means each user's session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us. However, we may use IP addresses to identify users of our website when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with the website's Terms of Use, or to protect our service, website or other users.

Novo Nordisk is not responsible for the content of any such referenced web sites or for the availability of access to such websites.
