Please know you may always opt-out of receiving both Standard and Optional Messages from Novo Nordisk or its partners at any time by sending a reply text stating “STOP,” texting “STOP” to 21848, or visiting www.rc-optout.carespeak.com. You may also opt-out of receiving Optional Messages by following the below instructions.

        • To stop receiving daily medicine reminders only, either send a reply text stating “OFF,” or text “OFF” to 21848 to stop receiving medicine reminders only.

  • Your Mobile Telephone Number. You represent that you are the account holder for the mobile telephone number and you opt-in to receive text messages for the PROGRAM.

  • Eligibility. To receive text messages or calls for the PROGRAM, you must be a resident of the US and 18 years of age or older. Novo Nordisk reserves the right to require you to prove that you are at least 18 years of age.

  • Access or Delivery to Mobile Network is Not Guaranteed. Delivery of information and content to a mobile device is not guaranteed and may fail due to a variety of circumstances or conditions. 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.

  • Privacy & Security.

    • Since Novo Nordisk appreciates the value of your private personal health information, Novo Nordisk wants you to understand that it 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 the content, may be stored on servers where mobile carrier employees, governments, or other unknown third parties might be able to view or access them.

    • Novo Nordisk understands and values the importance of your privacy. Please be aware that the data obtained from you in connection with this SMS message service may, among other things, include your cell phone number, carrier name, and message date, time, and content. We may use this information to contact you and to provide the services you request from us. In addition, your responses to any survey questions in this PROGRAM will be combined with the responses from other participants in this PROGRAM and shared with Novo Nordisk and its PROGRAM partners. However, the information shared with Novo Nordisk and its PROGRAM partners will not include your name, date of birth, or cell phone number or cell phone carrier. For more information on how we collect and use your information, please read our full Privacy Statement. If you opt out (as explained above) from receiving PROGRAM text messages, any future data collection from you will end. You also understand that a significant portion of the PROGRAM is conducted via text messaging. These text messages may contain health information. Standard text messaging is not encrypted, and a third party could read these messages.

  • PROGRAM Terms of Use. This PROGRAM does not substitute medical advice from your health care provider. You will have to contact him or her directly about issues, questions, or concerns. (See NOT MEDICAL ADVICE below.) You further understand that this PROGRAM is not a means to communicate product issues or negative side effects to Novo Nordisk. You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA at www.fda.gov/medwatch, or by phone at 1-800-FDA-1088. Novo Nordisk is not responsible for monitoring or recording text messages that may constitute an issue or negative side effect. However, if you are using a Novo Nordisk Product as treatment, and some of your entered responses can be interpreted as a side effect of the medication, Novo Nordisk reserves the right to contact you for more information by phone or written communication. For additional information about your medication, please call Novo Nordisk Customer Care at 1-833-457-7455.

  • Changes to Terms of Use and Conditions. Novo Nordisk may revise, modify, or amend the PROGRAM’s Mobile Terms of Use & Conditions for text messages and calls at any time. Any such revision, modification, or amendment will take effect when such changes are circulated to PROGRAM participants via text message. Novo Nordisk encourages you to thoroughly review any changes to Terms of Use and Conditions should you receive them.

  • Termination of Text Messaging. Novo Nordisk may suspend or terminate your receipt of Novo Nordisk text messages if Novo Nordisk believes you are in breach of these Mobile Terms and Conditions for SMS Messages.
