Intended use & Privacy

Intended use

The BedSense can provide insight into the mobility and activity of persons in bed, both in the current situation and over time. Based on these insights, the BedSense can also support the caregiver in following protocols aimed at injury prevention. The caregiver defines these protocols. Following the protocols is supported by visualizations and notifications on the BedSense or external devices (e.g. a computer, mobile device, nurse call system) or both.

In order to properly conduct our business activities, it is necessary to process personal data of our (website) visitors (, hereafter: "Website"), users of the mobile application ( and, hereafter: "App") customers and other relations.

At the bottom of this document you will find our contact details, should you have any questions or wish to exercise your rights.

Momo Medical is firmly committed to the protection of your personal data and respect for your privacy. Personal data are treated with the greatest possible care. We consider it important that the processing of personal data is done in a way that is consistent with the existing safeguards for the protection of privacy. In this regard, we follow the legal rules for the protection of personal data, namely the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and related applicable laws and regulations, as well as this privacy statement.

  • Device ID of the mobile device


  • Contact details of (the contact person at) the customer respectively relation (name, position, e-mail address, telephone number).

How does Momo Medical obtain your personal data?

Momo Medical may obtain your personal data in a number of ways. First, you or your employer may have provided this personal data through our Services or by sending an email. In addition, Momo Medical may obtain your personal data through the use of cookies or similar technologies (for more information on cookies, see further below).

Without these personal data, we cannot (among other things) sign and/or fulfill agreements with you nor contact you. Without cookies or similar technologies, some parts of our Services may not be available. The purposes of our processing operations are described in more detail below.

On which grounds and for which purposes does Momo Medical process your personal data?

We process personal data for the primary purpose of executing our agreement with customers or on the basis of our legitimate interest to be able to approach you as a relation and to conduct a relationship management. In particular, we do so for the following purposes and only to the extent necessary for those purposes:

  • To enter into and perform agreements with customers;
  • To follow up on your responses via the online Demo request form (available through any of the Services) or your email;
  • To allow the Services to function properly.

Exchange of personal data with third parties

Momo Medical may make personal data available to third parties who are involved in the processing of personal data in relation to the stated purposes. Momo Medical has made arrangements with these third parties so that there are sufficient safeguards for the careful processing of your personal data, in accordance with the law and Momo Medical's internal privacy policy and this Momo Medical Privacy Statement.

Third parties to whom we may provide your personal data are for example our software vendor, who maintains our systems. We have made agreements with our software supplier regarding the processing of your personal data. For more information about (the agreements with) this software supplier, please contact us using the contact details below.

In some cases, we may also have to provide personal data to (other) entities, such as the judicial authorities, on the basis of a legal obligation. In doing so, we always assess how we can respect your right to privacy as much as possible.

In principle, we do not share your personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA). If we wish to transfer your personal data outside Europe, for example because a data center of our software supplier is located there, we will only do so under the conditions set by law, for example by means of a contract to which the EU Model Clauses apply.

Distinction between the role of controller versus processor

To the extent that our client (for example, a healthcare institution) or other relationship itself determines the purposes and means of data processing of its patients' or clients' personal data, the healthcare institution is the controller of the personal data it handles. You can read more about what these healthcare institutions do with your own If applicable, Momo Medical will then process this personal data on behalf of its client as a 'processor' within the meaning of the GDPR. This is the case, for example, if the healthcare institution also purchases software from Momo Medical that tracks the use of the BedSense. As a processor, Momo Medical will ensure to the best of its ability that appropriate technical and organizational measures are in place to secure the personal data against loss or any form of illegitimate processing. In the event that Momo Medical is a processor, Momo Medical will enter into processor agreements with the relevant customers regarding the processing of personal data.

However, in cases where Momo Medical processes your contact details or other personal data of you as a website visitor, App user or customer, Momo Medical is the data controller.

Security of personal data

Momo Medical handles personal data with the utmost care and, together with any processors, takes appropriate organizational and technical security measures to protect our (website) visitors, App users, customers and other relations against unauthorized access or modification, disclosure or destruction of personal data. In addition, the use of the Services and the information exchanged, collected and analyzed is encrypted with an SSL certificate. For the website, you can recognize this by the padlock in the URL bar.

In the event that, despite the security measures, a security incident occurs that is likely to have an adverse effect on your privacy, we will inform you of the incident as soon as possible. We will also inform you about the measures we have taken to limit the consequences and to prevent repetition in the future.

Retention periods

Momo Medical will not retain personal data for longer than is necessary for the purpose for which they have been processed, unless we are required to retain your personal data for a longer period under a legal regulation or if longer retention is necessary for the performance of our activities or the settlement of the agreement or, for example, a dispute. In principle, we apply the following retention periods:

  • If you fill out our Demo request form through one of our Services, we will keep the form and any personal data contained until we have completed the request in the form. The data will be retained for a maximum of one year for the purposes of any subsequent contract discussions.
  • If you send us an email with a question, we will in principle only keep this email until your message or the matter in hand has been dealt with.
  • Data of our contact persons with our clients and other relations (incl. data suppliers) we keep for a maximum of two years after the end of the cooperation or other type of relationship (as far as necessary and subject to legal obligations).
  • Data relating to (geo)location is kept as long as necessary for the aforementioned purposes.
  • Data relating to payment, we are obligated under tax legislation to retain the data for 7 years after payment.

Our Services use cookies. Cookies are simple text files stored by your browser on your computer, tablet or smartphone that contain information about general visit data, such as most requested pages, browser type, date and time of your visit etc. The Website or App instructs the browser you use to view websites to store these cookies on your computer or mobile device.

    • we have taken measures which ensure that only a very limited part of your IP address is provided to Google;
    • we have taken measures which ensure that your personal data will not be shared with Google and may not be processed by Google for its own purposes or used to show you targeted ads;
    • we have taken measures which ensure that Google does not have the possibility to combine your surfing behaviour from different devices and multiple sessions;
  • we do not use other Google services in combination with Google's analytical cookies ( apart from what is mentioned herein).

When you use our App, it is optional to share (geo)location data with Momo Medical. The App may collect your location data based on GPS, the distance to a bluetooth beacon and the wifi name with the corresponding signal strength to which your mobile device is connected.

Your rights with regard to the processing of personal data

You have the following rights with regard to the processing of your personal data:

  • You may request access to or information about the personal data we process about you. This means that you can request which personal data of you are registered and for which purposes that personal data is used.
  • You can object to the processing of your personal data, for example if you believe that the use of your personal data is not necessary for the performance of our activities or to comply with a legal obligation.
  • You can request us to have your personal data amended/corrected and/or to restrict the processing of your personal data;
  • You can also ask us to remove your personal data from our systems.

Requests and other communications regarding the exercise of the aforementioned rights can be submitted in writing using the contact details below. We ask you to motivate your request, provide a signature, attach your address details, file number and a copy of a valid identification document and request that you cross out all unnecessary information, including in any case your Citizen Service Number (BSN) (for example by uploading via the KopieID app). You will receive a response within four weeks after receipt of your request.

We will comply with your request, unless we have a compelling legitimate interest not to remove the personal data, which outweighs your privacy interest or if complying with your request is not legally required and we would then no longer be able to fulfill our legitimate interest. If we have deleted the personal data, we may not be able for technical reasons to immediately remove all copies of the personal data from our systems and backup systems.

We may further refuse to comply with the above requests if they are made unreasonably frequently, require unreasonably heavy technical effort, or have unreasonably heavy technical consequences for our systems or jeopardize the privacy of others.
