Dexcom Cookie Policy

LAST REVISED: May 2018

This Cookie Policy describes the different types of cookies and similar technologies that may be applied on the websites that link to this policy (the “Dexcom Site”) provided by Dexcom and its affiliates (“we,” “us,” “our”).  We may change this Cookie Policy at any time.  Please take a look at the “LAST REVISED” legend at the top of this page to see when this Cookie Policy was last revised.  Any changes in this Cookie Policy will become effective when we make the revised Cookie Policy available on or through the Dexcom Site.

For a general view of our approach to the privacy of the personal data you pass to Dexcom, please see our Privacy Policy.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a data file, which often includes a unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a web server and is then stored on the hard drive of the device you are using to browse the website. Each website you visit can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but to protect your privacy your browser only permits a website to access cookies it has already sent to you, not cookies sent to you by other sites.

Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. Each browser is different, so check the ‘Help’ menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences. Please be aware that blocking cookies may affect the functionality of the website.

How we use cookies

You can find more information about the types of cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them in the table below:

Category 1: Strictly Necessary Cookies

These are required for the operation of a website. Examples are cookies used for online shopping baskets or to protect against fraud.

 

Notice for users:

 

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, like shopping baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided.

Category 2: Analytical/ Performance Cookies

These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website (for example, as part of Google Analytics or Omniture)

Notice for users:

 

These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance, which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information that these cookies collect is aggregated and, therefore, anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.

Category 3: Functionality Cookies

These are used to recognise users when they return to a website. They remember user choices and enable the personalisation of content.

Notice for users:

 

These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Category 4: Targeting Cookies

These cookies record a user’s visit to a website, the individual pages visited and the links followed. This collection of browsing habits is used to deliver more relevant adverts to the user.

Notice for users:

 

These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.

Category 5: Social Media Cookies

These cookies allow you to share what you’ve been doing on the website on social media such as Facebook and Twitter.

Notice for users:

 

These cookies are not within our control. Please refer to the respective privacy policies for how their cookies work.
