When you use our website, data may be stored for various security purposes. This data may include the name of your internet service provider, the web site that you used to link to our site, the web sites that you visit from our site and your IP-Address. This data could possibly lead to your identification, but we do not use it to do so. We do use the data from time to time for statistical purposes, but maintain the anonymity of each individual user so that the person cannot be identified.

Our distributors may share with us personal data that you provide to them when you buy an Ascensia product or otherwise contact them following a purchase. We also collect personal data from you if you apply to work at Ascensia Diabetes Care Holdings AG or at any of our Ascensia group of companies, and we use your personal data to process your application.

Ascensia Diabetes Care AG and or its affiliated companies may disclose personal data as required by law, regulation, court order, or regulator or law enforcement agency, or in respect to a criminal investigation or for tax reporting purposes. In some instances, we may also be required to disclose certain information to regulatory or governmental authorities. We may also disclose personal data when we believe it is reasonably necessary to protect our rights, property, or the safety of others and ourselves.

Our security procedures are regularly reviewed, and we update our procedures to take account of new technological developments. While we take reasonable steps to protect personal data, please be aware that no internet transmission is 100% secure.
