Information We May Collect From You

Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data). When you visit our Platform or correspond with us in person or by phone, e-mail or otherwise you may give us information that would be classed as personal data about you and others you are acting on behalf of. The information we collect from you will be dependent on your relationship with Momenta Newcastle Ltd and whether you are an organisation, Medical Practitioner, Academic, participant on our programmes and/or end user of our Platform. We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you when you do so which we have grouped together follows: 

We may collect Special Categories of Personal Data (as defined in the GDPR) about you. This may include details about your health, race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life or sexual orientation. Our health systems do not collect 3 

any information about criminal convictions and offences. (Separately, if you accept a job offer with us it will normally be conditional on us obtaining a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check for you – this does require us collecting information about criminal convictions and offences. It is dealt with under a separate Privacy Policy for staff and employees). 

Where we need to collect personal data under the terms of a contract we have with a health organisation we have and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you. In this case, we may have to cancel a service you have asked us to provide but we will notify you if this is the case at the time. 

It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and up to date. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us. 

Keeping Your Data Secure

We know that data security is important to you and it is therefore important to us. We have put in place appropriate technical and organisational security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed, including up to date virus software and personal protection on our computers and devices. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions in accordance with this policy and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. 

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
