Privacy notice


In this Privacy Notice, Roche informs you about the processing of your personal data when you give us your consent to use your video submission for advertisement purposes as described below (“Purpose”). Controller for the processing of your personal data for the Purpose is:

(hereinafter referred to as: “we”, “us” or „ROCHE“)

1. Purpose

For our #DiabetesSquad Challenge we call out to you to submit a video of yourself nominating your personal diabetes hero. Out of all submissions we will select specific videos or parts thereof and put together a chain video. We will post this chain video worldwide on our websites and on our social media accounts on World Diabetes Day (November 15, 2021) to celebrate and recognize diabetes heroes together with the whole diabetes community. ROCHE wishes to further utilize this chain video exclusively for the purpose of promotion and marketing purposes. This may include electronic publications, video, audio, adverts, press releases, photo galleries, news media, social media, and any other media form. Besides your submitted video, none of your personal details you submitted separately to us, including your name, will be published by ROCHE. If you provide us with your social media preference, we will use this information to analyze participant’s social media preference on an aggregated level.

2. Personal Data collected

For the Purpose, we will collect the following personal data:

  •  First and last name;
  •  Contact details: e-mail;
  •  Your video as submitted by you; and
  •  Preferred social media account (optional).

3. Purpose and Legal Basis for Processing your Personal Data

ROCHE processes your personal data exclusively for the Purpose. ROCHE will use your contact information only to contact you for the Purpose and to answer any questions you may have. The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is your consent. You may withdraw any consent you have given at any time. Withdrawing your consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing until withdrawal. The withdrawal can be declared via e-mail to [email protected]. After withdrawal of your consent, ROCHE will no longer process your personal data unless ROCHE is legally entitled or obliged to do so. Yet, please be aware that it might not be possible for ROCHE to limit the use of the submitted video by third parties once published on the internet. If you provide any personal data of other persons in your video (such as name, image or their live appearance in your video submission), you have to make these persons aware of this privacy policy and obtain their upfront consent as required under applicable law.

4. Data Transfer

As ROCHE is a global company, for specific purposes your data may also be transferred to other companies of the Roche Group and to service providers in so-called third countries where the data protection level may not meet the European standards. The list of companies of the Roche Group is included in the current version of the Roche Group Annual Report, which is available on the website www.roche.com. Data protection outside of the EU or the European Economic Area, e.g. in the USA, where there may not be a comparable level of data protection, may be ensured by adequacy decisions of the EU Commission (as it is the case e.g. for Switzerland) or EU standard contractual clauses and, where applicable, further measures. You may obtain further information on this via the above-mentioned contact details. Please note that if the recording is published on online platforms and social networks, it can be accessed worldwide. For a detailed presentation of the respective forms of processing and the opt-out options, please refer to the privacy statements and information provided by the operators of the respective networks.
