Changes to this policy
Unless the purposes for collecting personal information are obvious and a person voluntarily provides his or her personal information for those purposes, Clementia will communicate about the purposes for which we collect and use personal information, the types of non–agent third parties to which Clementia discloses that information, the choices and means, if any, Clementia offers individuals for limiting the use and disclosure of personal information about them, and how to contact Clementia. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when individuals are first asked to provide personal information to Clementia, or as soon as practicable thereafter, and in any event before Clementia uses or discloses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected. Where Clementia receives personal information from its subsidiaries or affiliates it will use and disclose such information in accordance with the notices provided by such entities and the choices made by the individuals to whom such personal information relates.
We may collect, use or disclose personal information without your knowledge or consent in the following limited circumstances:
When the collection, use or disclosure of personal information is permitted or required by law;
In an emergency that threatens an individual’s life, health, or personal security;
When the personal information is available from a public source;
When we require legal advice from a lawyer;
To investigate an anticipated breach of an agreement or a contravention of law.
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under age 13 through our Website. If we learn that an individual under the age of 13 has volunteered personal or health-related personal information on the Website, or if you become aware that your child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us at the contact information listed below and such personal information will be deleted.
In order to better serve you, we may automatically collect certain technical information from your computer when you use the Website, such as your IP address, your browser type, your operating system, the sequence or duration of your visits to each Website page and the domain names of our users. We may aggregate this information in order to analyze trends and statistics; however, the aggregated information is not linked to any personally identifiable information that can be used to identify any one individual.
Clementia will not process personal information about individuals for purposes other than those for which the information was originally obtained or subsequently authorized by the individual unless the individual affirmatively and explicitly consents (“opt-in”) to the processing, or unless an exception applies.
Clementia also provides individuals with the opportunity to withdraw consent at any time (“opt-out”), in which case their personal information will not be further processed. In addition, you may opt out, at any time, in the event that you no longer wish to receive emails from Clementia by unsubscribing from our email list. There are certain limitations on the right to opt-out, such as those that apply in the clinical research situation. In that situation, Clementia can continue to rely upon personal information already provided by clinical research participants who choose to discontinue participation in a clinical trial, to the extent needed to protect the integrity of the study, but cannot collect any additional personal information about that individual once the written request to withdraw participation is received.
Clementia will use or disclose personal information only in ways that are necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is relevant to its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.
Clementia will obtain assurances from third party business partners (agents) that they will safeguard personal information consistent with Clementia’s policies. In instances where data is transferred to third parties, Clementia will release the minimal amount of identifying data that is necessary for the third parties to complete their responsibilities.
Clementia will retain personal information only as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which such information was collected or as required under applicable laws.
Clementia will make reasonable efforts to ensure that personal information is accurate and complete where it may be used. Upon request, Clementia will grant individuals reasonable access to personal information that it holds about them, subject to permitted exemptions. In addition, Clementia will take reasonable steps to permit individuals to correct, amend, or delete information that is demonstrated to be inaccurate or incomplete, except when the burden or expense of providing access, correction, amendment or deletion would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual’s privacy, or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated.
Clementia is committed to ensuring the security of personal information in order to protect it from unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modification or disposal or similar risks; however, some risk is involved when information is transmitted over the Internet. Clementia cannot guarantee that the Website is completely safe from illegal tampering and you should also recognize that your use of the Internet and this Website is solely at your own risk.
Clementia uses encryption practices to help insure the integrity and privacy of some of the personal and health-related personal information you provide to us. All personal and/or health-related personal information is kept physically behind firewalls that prevent intruders from gaining access. As an added security precaution, Clementia deploys various methods of protection to maintain the integrity and confidentiality of data. Although we will make reasonable efforts to protect personal and/or health-related personal information from loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties, you should be aware that there is always some risk that an unauthorized third party could intercept an internet transmission, or that someone will find a way to violate our security systems.

Clementia is making available an automatic translation service that uses state-of-the-art technology, not human translators, to translate text instantly into different languages (“Translation Function”). By providing these translations, Clementia hopes to make essential information available to the diverse populations that visit our Website every day. However, please be aware that, since translations are done by machine, they may not always be perfect. Please see our legal disclaimer at the bottom of this page for additional information.
Translated text may not display property in a particular language if your browser does not have the applicable language pack installed. To download appropriate language packs, visit the website for your browser. If your device is not powerful enough, it is possible that the Translation Function may cause your browser to freeze.
Automatic translation detects patterns in documents that already have been translated by human translators. Using those patterns as a guide, automatic translators are able to make intelligent guesses as to what an appropriate translation should be. Because the translations are generated by machine, not all translations will be perfect. If you encounter a translation that doesn’t seem right, click on the phrase in question – and sometimes the Translation Function will have alternative translation available.
Clementia provides this link to the Translation Function as a courtesy to visitors to its Website. Clementia does not own, manage or control any aspect of the Translation Function, and is not responsible for the translations provided by the Translation Function. Clementia does not make any promises, assurances, or guarantees as to the accuracy, reliability, or timeliness of the translations provided. Clementia can only verify the validity and accuracy of the information provided in English and, because of this, the English version of our website is the official text. Viewers who rely on information through the Translation Function on our Website do so at their own risk. Clementia shall not be liable for any inaccuracies or errors in the translation and shall not accept liability for any loss, damage, or other problem, including without limitation, indirect or consequential loss or damage arising from or in connection with use of the Translation Function. By using the Translation Function you understand and agree to this disclaimer. If there are any concerns regarding the accuracy of the information presented within the translated versions of our Website, please refer back to the official English- language Website.
