    • Text Message Frequency. The DHC Program’s message frequency will vary depending on your individual selections. Please be aware that Novo Nordisk brands and services may have separate text messaging programs.

    • Cost. You will not be charged any fee from Novo Nordisk or its partners in connection with the DHC Program to receive coaching text messages.

Alerts sent via text message may not be delivered if the mobile phone is not in range of a transmission site, or if sufficient network capacity is not available at a particular time. Even within a coverage area, factors beyond the control of the wireless carrier may interfere with message delivery, including the customer's equipment, terrain, proximity to buildings, foliage, and weather. Novo Nordisk will not be held responsible for any delays in the receipt of any text messages as delivery is subject to effective transmission from your mobile service provider or network operator. You understand and acknowledge that network services, including but not limited to mobile network services, are outside of Novo Nordisk’s control, and Novo Nordisk is not responsible or liable for issues arising from them. Note that there may be data or message fees imposed by your carrier or service provider if you choose to receive text messages from your DHC Program coach.

    • Novo Nordisk cannot guarantee the security of any personal health information transmitted via SMS text message. SMS text messages are not encrypted or protected. These communications and, possibly their content, may be stored on servers where mobile carrier employees, governments, or other unknown third parties might be able to view or access them.

During the course of the DHC Program, you may be asked for additional details about your condition, lifestyle, diet, exercise, or other information in order to tailor the DHC Program to best suit your needs and to improve the DHC Program. You are not required to provide this additional information, but not doing so may make your experience less personalized. Your information will be shared between Novo Nordisk and its service providers who support the DHC Program in accordance with applicable laws. Novo Nordisk and its service providers may share information that does not individually identify you without restriction in accordance with applicable laws. Novo Nordisk understands and values the importance of your privacy. In accordance with these Terms of Use, Novo Nordisk may use your information for program improvements, quality monitoring, data and analytics for Novo Nordisk commercial purposes, and future Novo Nordisk marketing communications (including branded or unbranded emails, text messages, or direct mail).
