Personal Information

In this Privacy Policy, "Personal Information" means information about an identifiable individual. Personal Information may include, but is not limited to, your name, mailing address, e-mail address, Internet Protocol address, unique personal identifiers, geolocation data, account name, social insurance number, medical information, health insurance information, commercial information, and telephone number.

Personal Information also does not include information that has been anonymized or aggregated in such a way that there is no serious possibility it can be used to identify an individual, whether on its own or in combination with other information.

How we Collect your Personal Information

Typically, we collect your Personal Information in one or more of the following circumstances (or in such other purposes with your consent):

  • Internet Protocol (IP) Addresses

When you access the Internet using your computer, your Internet service provider assigns you an IP Address. Generally, every time you connect to the Internet from a different device, your IP Address changes. In some circumstances (i.e., with some broadband connections) your IP Address may not change in which case, it can be associated with your particular computer. In order to identify your device or certain preferences for your use of the Services we may collect your IP Address and other information. Examples of the type of information that can be collected using your IP Address include your type of internet browser, the type of operating system you are using and your general geographic area. Insulet, or its authorized agents, may also use your IP Address to collect and report aggregate information on how the Services are being used and ways in which the Services can be improved.

  • Web Log Information

We may also collect web log information which is non-Personal Information that is collected by the server that hosts the Services, including, but not limited to, the date and time you visited the Services, the type of Internet Browser you are using, technical and device information about your use of our Services and the type of computer operating system you are using. Weblog information may be collected and used by Insulet or its authorized agents in aggregate to assess how the Services are being used and how to improve the Services.

  • Cookies

Our Services use or enlist third-party services which use a technology known as "Cookies". A Cookie is a token that a server gives to your browser when you access a website on the Internet. Cookies are capable of storing many types of data. Your use of the Services constitutes your consent to our use of Cookies. Cookies (which term also includes, for purposes of this Privacy Policy, other technologies such as web beacons and pixels that serve similar functions) help provide additional functionality to the Services, save your preferences for use of the Services or help us analyze the Services usage more accurately. For instance, our server may set a Cookie that keeps you from having to enter a password more than once during a visit to the Services. In all cases in which Cookies are used, we will not collect Personal Information without your consent. The use of Cookies is a common practice adopted by most major sites to better serve their users. You may review Insulet’s Cookie Policy, which contains information on how the Services use Cookies.

You should be aware that operators of third-party websites and services linking to or linked from the Services may also collect your Personal Information through the use of Cookies. Insulet, its affiliates and any directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, subcontractors or agents of the foregoing shall not be responsible for how such third-party operators collect, use or disclose your Personal Information. You need to contact these operators directly for information on their data collection, use and disclosure policies. Your navigation to a third-party website or service is entirely at your own risk and subject to the terms and conditions of such websites or services.

Withdrawal of Consent

You may withdraw your consent to our collection, use or disclosure of your Personal Information at any time by contacting our Privacy Officer, whose contact information is provided below.  In some cases, withdrawal of your consent may mean that we will no longer be able to provide certain Services to you.

Transfer of Personal Information to Service Providers

Insulet may have service providers perform services relating to the development, operation and maintenance of the Services or relating to other services including but not limited to e-commerce providers, payment card processors, telephone and technical support providers, order fulfillment, hosting, data storage and processing service providers, and research and analytics providers. ("Service Providers"). These Service Providers may have access to your Personal Information, as is reasonably necessary, for the purpose of providing their services to Insulet.

If we provide your information to Service Providers, then we require that the Service Providers maintain the confidentiality of your Personal Information and keep your Personal Information secure.  We also require that they only use your Personal Information for the limited purposes for which it is provided.  In some circumstances, we may permit our Service Providers to retain aggregated, anonymized, or statistical information that does not identify you.  We do not authorize the Service Providers to disclose your Personal Information to unauthorized parties or to use your Personal Information for their direct marketing purposes.  If you would like more information about our Service Providers, please contact us using the contact information set out below.

Retention of Personal Information

We retain your personal information in our offices and servers located in Oakville, Canada, as well as in the United States.  We may also retain your personal information in the servers of our Service Providers which are located in the United States.

As we are a U.S.-based entity, your Personal Information may be transferred outside your country of residence, including to the U.S. As a result, your Personal Information may be subject to the laws of those foreign jurisdictions, and may be subject to disclosure to the governments, courts or law enforcement or regulatory agencies of that other country, pursuant to that country’s laws. 

We will use, disclose or retain your Personal Information only as permitted or required by law.

Information Security

We have implemented physical, organizational, contractual and technological security measures with a view to protecting your Personal Information and other information from loss or theft, unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.  We have taken steps to ensure that the only personnel who are granted access to your Personal Information are those with a business ‘need-to-know’ or whose duties reasonably require such information.

Despite the measures outlined above, you must be aware that transmissions over the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be completely secure and such transmission or information storage is not 100% secure or error-free. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any information that you provided to us has been compromised), please contact us immediately using the contact information set out below.

To the maximum extent permissible under applicable law, Insulet, its affiliates and any directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, subcontractors or agents of the foregoing do not represent, warrant or guarantee that Personal Information will be protected against misuse, loss or modification, nor do such parties accept liability for the security of a user's Personal Information submitted on or via or in connection with the Services.

Access to and Correction of Personal Information

We will take steps to ensure that your Personal Information is kept as accurate, complete and up-to-date as reasonably necessary.  However, we will not routinely update your Personal Information, unless such a process is necessary. 

If we hold Personal Information about you, you may make a written request to access, change and update your Personal Information at any time. You may also challenge the accuracy or completeness of your Personal Information in our records. If you successfully demonstrate that your Personal Information in our records is inaccurate or incomplete, we will amend the Personal Information as required.

We may require that you provide sufficient identification to fulfill your request to access or correct your Personal Information.  Any such identifying information will be used only for this purpose.
