Roche doesn’t collect any personal identifiable information about you during your visit to our website unless you choose to provide it to us. We do, however, collect information from visitors who read, browse, and/or download information from our site. We do this so we can understand how the public uses the site and how to make it more helpful.
Roche never collects information for commercial marketing or any purpose unrelated to our purpose, mission or goals.
We will request that you provide data and information about yourself which includes sensitive personal information (hereafter referred to as ‘Personal Data’). This is to enable us and to ensure that we manage diabetes patients efficiently with proper analysis and management of their glucose and to facilitate diagnosis and tracking and/or information about you that has been or may be collected, stored, used and processed by Roche Diagnostics (M) Sdn. Bhd. from time to time for the effective delivery of our services to you and/or client relationship management and quality improvement services to ensure holistic health care solutions, diagnostics and treatment options.
When you browse through any website, certain information about your visit can be collected. We automatically collect and temporarily store the following types of information about your visit:
Roche uses a variety of Web measurement software tools. No personally identifiable information is collected by these tools. Roche staff analyses and reports on the collected data from these tools. The reports are available only to Roche employees and Web teams, and other designated staff who need this information to perform their duties.
Roche also uses an online survey to collect opinions and feedback. This online survey appears on the bottom left of many pages on the site. You don’t have to answer these questions. Please don't include any personal identifiable information in comments you make. We analyse and use this information to improve the site’s operation and content.
If you choose to provide us with personal identifiable information through an email message, request for information, paper or electronic form, questionnaire, survey, etc., we will maintain the information you provide only as long as needed to respond to your question or to fulfil the stated purpose of the communication.
If in order to contact you we store your personal information in a record system designed to retrieve information about you by personal identifier (name, personal email address, home mailing address, personal or mobile phone number, etc.),
We will safeguard the information you provide in accordance to PDPA 2010. The Personal Data Protection Act 2010 (PDPA) was passed by the Malaysian Parliament in May 2010 and received Royal Assent on 2 June 2010. The PDPA came into force on 15 November 2013 by way of notification in the Government Gazette, with a three month sunrise period which ended on 15 February 2014. The law is aimed at providing minimum standards relating to the collection, use and protection of personal data.
You have several choices regarding your use of our Web sites. You could decide not to submit any personally identifiable information at all by not entering it into any forms or data fields on our sites and not using any available personalized services. If you choose to submit personal data, you have the right to see and correct your data at any time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Certain sites may ask for your permission for certain uses of your information and you can agree to or decline those uses. If you opt-in for particular services or communications, such as an e-newsletter, you will be able to unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions included in each communication. If you decide to unsubscribe from a service or communication, we will work to remove your information promptly, although we may require additional information before we can process your request.
As described above, if you wish to prevent cookies from tracking you anonymously as you navigate our sites, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.
Roche uses technology and security precautions, rules and other procedures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, improper use, disclosure, loss or destruction. To ensure the confidentiality of your information, Roche uses also industry standard firewalls and password protection. It is, however, your personal responsibility to ensure that the computer you are using is adequately secured and protected against malicious software, such as trojans, computer viruses and worm programs. You are aware of the fact that without adequate security measures (e.g. secure web browser configuration, up-to-date antivirus software, personal firewall software, no usage of software from dubious sources) there is a risk that the data and passwords you use to protect access to your data, could be disclosed to unauthorized third parties.
Roche, including the subsidiaries, divisions and groups worldwide and/or the companies we hire to perform services on our behalf will use any personally identifiable information you choose to give us to comply with your requests. We will retain control of and responsibility for the use of this information. Some of this data may be stored or processed at computers located in other jurisdictions, such as the United States, whose data protection laws may differ from the jurisdiction in which you live. In such cases, we will ensure that appropriate protections are in place to require the data processor in that country to maintain protections on the data that are equivalent to those that apply in the country in which you live.
The information, which is also used for different HR purposes (Performance Management, Succession decisions or Development actions), will be helpful for us to better understand your needs and how we can improve our products and services. It helps us also to personalize certain communications with you about services and promotions that you might find interesting. For example, we may analyze the gender or age of visitors to sites about a particular medication or disease state, and we may use that analysis of aggregate data internally or share it with others.
Roche shares personally identifiable data about you with various outside companies or agents doing technological maintenance or working on our behalf to help fulfill business transactions, such as providing customer services, sending marketing communications about our products, services and offers. We may also share personally identifiable data with our company's subsidiaries and affiliates. All these companies and agents are required to comply with the terms of our privacy policies.
We may also disclose personally identifiable information for these purposes:
No Third-Party Direct Marketing Use. We will not sell or otherwise transfer the personally identifiable information you provide to us at our Web sites to any third parties for their own direct marketing use unless we provide clear notice to you and obtain your explicit consent for your data to be shared in this manner.
E-mail a Friend or Colleague. On some Roche sites, you can choose to send a link or a message to a friend or colleague referring them to a Roche Web site. E-mail addresses you may provide for a friend will be used to send your friend information on your behalf and will not be collected or used by Roche or other third parties for additional purposes.
Our sites contain links to a number of Web sites that may offer useful information to our visitors. This Privacy Statement does not apply to those sites, and we recommend communicating to them directly for information on their privacy policies.
Our Web sites are directed at an adult audience. We do not collect any personally identifiable information from anyone we know to be under the age of 18 without the prior, verifiable consent of his or her legal representative. Such legal representative has the right, upon request, to view the information provided by the child and/or to require that it be deleted.
If a Web site has particular provisions relating to privacy that differ from those stated here, those provisions will be disclosed to you on the page on which personally identifiable information is collected.
If you have a business or professional relationship with Roche, we may use information you submit on our sites, including sites intended specifically for business and professional users, to fulfill your requests and develop our business relationship with you and the entities you represent. We may also share such information with third parties acting on our behalf.
From time to time, Roche may revise this online Privacy Statement in accordance to the amendments that could be made to PDPA 2010. Any such changes to this Privacy Statement will be promptly communicated on this page. Continued use of our sites after receiving notice of a change in our Privacy Statement indicates your consent to the use of newly submitted information in accordance with the amended PDPA Notice. This Privacy Statement was last updated on and is effective as of 15 February, 2014.

In connection with your use of the Diabetes Assistant Program, Roche Diagnostics is granting you a non-exclusive, personal non-commercial license to use its proprietary RDWeb software. The RDWeb software allows your ACCU-CHEK Meter to transfer data to the Diabetes Assistant Program. Your license includes the right to use the RDWeb software and any associated media, printed materials, online or other electronic documentation or other materials associated therewith (the "Licensed Product"). The term Licensed Product shall include all subsequent RDWeb software downloads and/or installations, regardless of the manner of installation, and the terms and restrictions set forth herein shall extend to such subsequent acquisitions of software regardless of the date on which they occur.
By checking the box marked "I have read and agree to the Terms" you are also agreeing to be bound by the terms of this license to use the Licensed Product. If you do not agree to these license terms, you should not check this box and you will have no rights to install, copy or otherwise use the Licensed Product.
You may use the Licensed Product to allow your ACCU-CHEK blood glucose meter to communicate with the Diabetes Assistant Program. The license only extends to the downloading of test result information from your ACCU-CHEK blood glucose meter to Roche Diagnostics software (including the Diabetes Assistant Program). You may not use the Licensed Product to allow access to or perform call up routines to non-Roche Diagnostics software or to alter your blood glucose meter functions in any way. You agree to only allow this software to be installed on machines for which you are authorized to install software.
You may not alter, reverse engineer or disassemble the Licensed Product. You may not copy the Licensed Product except as necessary to (i) read the Licensed Product into the memory of a computer solely for the purpose of executing it on a single machine or (ii) create an archival copy. Any copies that you make of the Licensed Product must contain the same proprietary notices that appear on and in the Licensed Products. Copying, duplicating, selling or otherwise distributing the Licensed Product is expressly forbidden.
Your license to use the Licensed Product extends to non-commercial use only. This license agreement extends to all subsequent RDWeb software downloads and installations. Non-commercial use means that you are using the Licensed Product for personal use only, and are not using the Licensed Product in any manner intended to provide either direct or indirect remuneration to you, whether now or later. Whether a use is commercial or non-commercial use will be determined by Roche Diagnostics in its sole discretion. Use of the Licensed Product to develop any commercial use software product or program which is intended to be used in conjunction with, incorporates or requires use of the Licensed Product will be considered a commercial use, even if the Licensed Product is not a direct part of this commercial use and remains in the possession of a non-commercial user.
Any use by you of the Licensed Product for commercial use will constitute a breach of the license and will entitle Roche Diagnostics to terminate your use and to seek all available legal and equitable remedies. In addition, Roche Diagnostics may elect to instead convert your license to a license for commercial use, to be deemed effective as of the first date on which you made commercial use of the Licensed Product, and impose reasonable royalties upon you for your commercial use (including past due royalties for such use, with interest).

accu-chek.com collects a variety of information in several ways.
Generally, you can visit our site without revealing any personal information about yourself. At times, though, we may need information about you in order to process a request, such as warranty, or to provide an appropriate response, such as with the meter selection tool. You will have a choice as to whether or not to provide such data to accu-chek.com. Please be aware, however, that if you elect not to provide that information, you may not be able to use some of the features on the site.
If you choose to provide us with personal information, we will use such information in strict adherence to the terms of this policy. If you ask us to not use this information as a basis for further contact with you, we will respect your request.
Several places on our site require personal information if you choose to use them, such as the warranty tool and the meter selection tool. At these places, we ask you to give us contact information (name, address, telephone number, e-mail address), and demographic information (like birth date, gender, information on your diabetes care program).
We may use contact information to send you information about our company, such as new products, special offers or diabetes information, or to contact you regarding your warranty. As stated below, you may opt out of being contacted in the future and receiving information of this sort. We may use unique identifiers to verify your identity, for use in our record system, and for marketing purposes. We may use demographic and profile data to tailor your experience at our site. This data allows us to show you content that we think you might be interested in and to display content according to your preferences. We may perform statistical analyses of your behaviors and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site.
Our site recognizes information about your computer, such as the browser, operating system, IP address, and the home server from which you access the Internet. We keep track of the domains from which people visit our site. Your IP address is used to help identify you, gather broad demographic data, identify trends and statistics, help diagnose problems with our server, and administer our website. We may use your IP address information when compiling and reporting aggregate information about our website. We normally do not link IP addresses to any personally-identifiable information; however, we may disclose visitor information when subpoenaed, for government investigations, and when we otherwise believe in good faith that the law requires it.
Most browsers today allow users to set cookie preferences to accept all cookies, warn users before accepting cookies, or always reject cookies set by Web servers if a user prefers. Furthermore, browsers such as Netscape and Internet Explorer allow users to cleanse existing cookies from their hard drive.
When you visit our website, accu-chek.com assigns a unique visitor ID to a cookie file stored on your computer. This code is generated at random to enable us to "remember" you the next time you visit. This technique enables us to better serve you by providing content that is tailored to your specific interests and needs, and to facilitate quicker and easier log-in for you by remembering your password. Cookie information is neither connected to external data sources nor passed on to any outside party that is not connected with accu-chek.com.
While cookies allow an enhanced user experience, they are not necessary to use our site - except where strict security access controls are in place. Access to our site will not be interrupted if users choose not to accept cookies, but certain features may not be available.
