Information Momentum Collects 

We do not collect any Personal Information about Clients on Our website, unless the Personal Information is provided to Momentum voluntarily or derived from website navigation and usage of the Momentum website and online platforms.  Momentum collects, retains, and uses information from Clients including but not limited to the following: 

  • information that is required when You sign up for Momentum’s website;

  • contact information including but not limited to name, address, telephone number, email address, and emergency contact information;

  • information You share with Momentum during clinical visits and other communications with Momentum; 

  • “Public Information" which means the information You choose to make public and information that is publicly available;

  • information gathered about a user of Momentum’s website through cookies and similar technologies including but not limited to information regarding usage of Our website, domain name, the number of hits, pages visited, previous/subsequent websites visited and length of user session.  

 

Uses of the Collected Data

Momentum uses non-personally identifying information to better design Our website and to use in research and trend analysis. For example, We may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on Our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out a website survey or form, but We would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals. We provide data to Our partners, if any, after We have removed Your name and any other personally identifying information from it or have combined it with other data in a way that it no longer personally identifies You. 

 

From time to time, We may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in this Privacy Policy. If Our information practices change at some time in the future, We will notify You before We use Your data for these new purposes and to provide You with the ability to opt out of these new uses.

 

Momentum stores data only for as long as it is necessary (as determined by Momentum) to provide products and services to Clients and for legal protections or as required by applicable laws and regulations.

 

Momentum may disclose and/or use Clients’ Public Information that has been shared with Momentum through its website or through the services provided by Momentum.

 

We will provide Clients with access to a description of information that We maintain about them upon request. MomentumRI.org uses industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged with Our website. 

 

Momentum uses cookies and similar technologies to track usage of the website and to address security issues. We may also use cookies to store Your preferences relating to use of Our website. A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to Your computer, tablet, phablet, cell phone or other electronic device (a "device") browser from a website's computer and is stored on the device's hard drive. Each website 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 the cookies it has already sent to You, not the cookies sent to You by other websites. Cookies record information about Your preferences and allow Momentum to tailor the website to Your interests. During the course of any visit to the website, the pages You see, along with a cookie, are downloaded to Your device. Many websites do this because cookies enable website publishers to do useful things such as finding out whether the device (and probably its user) has visited the website before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking for the cookie left there on the previous visit. Information supplied by cookies can help Momentum analyze the profile of Our visitors so We can provide You with a better user experience.

We do not share Personal Information about Clients except in the following circumstances:

  • disclosure is required or permitted by law;

  • during an emergency circumstance as determined by Momentum in its discretion;

  • You have authorized Momentum to disclose the Personal Information;

  • to computer services consultants and technicians or other security consultants, in order to ensure the confidentiality and security of Clients’ records;

  • to financial service providers or consultants to carry out requested services, and/or to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud, unauthorized transactions, claims, or other liability;

  • to independent auditors or consultants in order to carry out institutional risk control;

  • to government or regulatory agencies, including self-regulatory organizations and to comply with a legal summons, court order, subpoena or a similar legal process, audit or investigation;

  • to swap data repositories; and

  • to third parties responsible for processing Your information (for example, credit card payment providers). 

 

How We Protect Personal Information

Momentum does not sell any Personal Information and takes the following measures to protect Clients’ Personal Information:

  • restricting access to Personal Information to only those personnel for whom the Personal Information is deemed necessary by Momentum in its discretion;

  • prohibiting third-parties from using the Personal Information for their own business purposes other than the purpose for which Momentum has engaged the third-party;

  • maintaining physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with relevant laws and regulations; and

  • using firewall barriers and digital certifications to maintain the security of Clients’ online sessions and Personal Information.
