Privacy Policy

Mission Gait respects the privacy of our donors, both online and offline, and the privacy of all other visitors and users both online and offline. This Privacy Policy describes the types of personal information we collect on our Website and/or offline communication means, how we may use that information, and with whom we may share it. Our Privacy Policy also describes the measures we take to protect the security of the information we collect. In addition, we describe the choices you can make about how we use the information you provide to us. Finally, we will tell you how you can reach us to update your contact information, remove your name from our mailing lists, or answer and questions you may have about our privacy practices.

Information We Collect and How We Use It

Mission Gait does not collect personally identifiable information from individuals unless they provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly. We do not require you to register or provide information in order to view public areas of our site. You may choose to provide personal information (such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address) on this Web site. Here are the ways you may provide the information and the types of information you may submit. We also tell you how we may use the information.

E-mail Communications

When you ask us to send you e-mail, you may provide us with certain information like your full name and e-mail address so we can fulfill your request. You may choose to provide additional information as well, such as your postal address and phone number.


When you make a donation through our Web site, we may ask you to submit certain personal information (such as credit card information) so we can process your donation. We use the credit card information you provide only to fulfill the transaction you requested. If we have trouble processing your payment, we may use this information to contact you. We maintain your contact information in our records so we can contact you to provide Mission Gait program information and information on additional giving opportunities.

Contact Mission Gait

You may choose to contact us through our Web site. We use the information you provide to respond to your inquiries.


When you visit our Web site, your browser automatically sends us certain Internet-related information (such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you’re using). We also may use cookies to better understand how visitors use our site.

Cookies are small text files that Web sites often store on the computer hard drives of visitors to their sites. A cookie contains a unique code, which is used to recognize your computer when a user of your computer returns to a Web site that was visited previously. We use cookies to enhance the online experience of our visitors and to better understand how our site is used. Cookies may tell us, for example, whether you have visited our site before or whether you are a new visitor.

The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable existing cookies. Remember, though, without cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all of Mission Gait’s Web site features.

Google Analytics

Mission Gait uses Google Analytics to collect information about the use of this site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies.

Information We Share

Mission Gait does not sell, rent, trade or otherwise disclose personal information obtained via our Web site or offline communications means, except as described here. We share information provided by our Web site and offline donors with the service provider that we have retained to process donations. This service provider is not authorized by us to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements. To most efficiently use the resources you entrusted to us, we may disclose to select third parties information regarding donation history. Information of this kind is used to enable Mission Gait to identify others like yourself interested in partnering with us to help children and their families. Information provided in donation history may include statistics such as total number of donations and value of donations for a set period of time. This information disclosure is done very carefully to ensure that your personal information is protected.

In addition, we may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law, (ii) in response to a request from law enforcement authorities or other government officials, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.

Mission Gait is dedicated to improving rehabilitation for patients and rehabilitation professionals alike. Sometimes we share information about the successes and experiences of our patients, partners, or others through such means as blog posts, videos, case studies, or other media or publications. Prior to sharing your information, we will contact you and you will be asked to sign a release of information either electronically or with written signature. If you choose not to sign the release, Mission Gait cannot publish any personally identifiable information about you. Once you have signed the release, Mission Gait has ownership of your information and can publish it for their purposes. We make every effort to ensure that the information included on our site is accurate.

We reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to direct the transferee to use personal information you have provided through this Web site in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Links to Other Sites

Occasionally we provide links to other Web sites for your convenience and information. These sites operate independently from our site and are not under our control. These sites may have their own privacy notices in place, which we strongly suggest you review if you visit any linked Web sites. We are not responsible for the content of these sites, any products or services that may be offered through these sites, or any other use of these sites.


We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized disclosure, use, alteration or destruction of the personal information in our possession. When you provide credit card information to make a donation, we use the industry standard for Internet security — Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology — to help protect the information you provide. This Internet encryption standard scrambles data as it travels from your computer to our server. Please note, however, that perfect security does not exist on the Internet. You’ll know that you’re in a secure area of our Web site when a “lock” icon appears on your screen and the “http” portion of our URL address changes to “https.” The “s” stands for “secure.”
