Various specific sections discuss how we handle data pertaining to different state laws.

Additionally, Onward’s Sites have links to external internet pages, including social media platforms, job application platforms, and other websites.

Onward has no control over the privacy or security practices of external websites. It is important that you read and understand the policies of all websites with respect to these practices. 


This Privacy Policy is in addition to, and does not replace, Onward’s HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices, which explains how we use and disclose our patients’ protected health information (“PHI”) and your rights to access and amend your PHI under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”).

Information We Collect


Information You Provide Us Directly
Onward may collect certain information from you, such as your name, address, phone number, email address, or other demographic information when you request additional information, search and apply for a job with Onward, fill out a contact form, submit feedback to Onward, attend a Onward event, or otherwise engage with us. We may retain any messages you send us through the Sites pursuant to our retention policies. We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide you a superior website user experience as well as provide you information about Onward.


If you apply for employment at Onward, you may provide information about yourself as well as information regarding your education, employment history, demographic/equal employment opportunity data, educational history, degrees, certifications, credentials, references, locations, and other information included in your resume and in the application for employment that you submit.


Information We May Receive From Third Parties


We also may collect information regarding how you interact with our Sites and other websites, such as Onward pages and content on social media platforms. For example, if you “like” a photo on one of our social media sites, we may collect information related to that interaction. In some cases, we may receive information about you from third parties. Onward may receive information about you that you directly provided to a third party. For instance, Onward may use a third party to manage event registrations. The third party would provide Onward registrants’ data to facilitate the event.


Analytics Information


Onward may use website analytics to provide you the best possible experience with our web platforms, Sites and offerings.  For example, when we send you emails, we may use technologies to determine whether the email has been opened and whether the links contained in it have been clicked on. We may combine this data with other information collected to measure your interest in Onward, improve our offerings to audiences, or our marketing campaigns, as well as tailor our interactions with you.
Some of our Sites may use website analytics vendors to better understand usage of our Sites or for offerings to audiences or general marketing campaigns. These tools collect information sent by your browser or mobile device, including the pages you visit and other information that assists us in improving our Sites and offerings. 

 

Cookies

Onward uses two types of cookies: "session" cookies and "persistent" cookies. Onward uses Meta Pixel and GA4 for cookies.
A session cookie is temporary and expires after you end a session and close a Web browser. We may use session cookies to help customize visitors' experiences on our Sites, maintain a signed-on status while exploring the Sites, and track which Web pages visitors view on our Sites.
