ACCESS AND USE OF THE PLATFORM
The Platform is accessible from any computer device (computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.) to Users, which also include therapists ("Member Users") and insurers.
The Platform requires Member Users to choose a password to log into their personal area on the Platform ("Member Area"). As long as the password is entered correctly, RITMA assumes that the Member User is the person giving the instructions and making the payments. It is the Member User's responsibility to choose a secure password that is not easily guessed, to keep the password secret, and to ensure that the password is not stored in such a way as to allow others to access it or impersonate the Member User. In addition, if you disclose the password to any other person and permit that person to access the Platform, you become responsible for that person's access, use and disclosure of your password to that person.
It is the Member User's responsibility not to unsubscribe from RITMA's mailing lists dedicated to Member Users so that RITMA can continue to communicate with them. Otherwise, the Member User will have to contact RITMA to be reinstated to the Member User mailing list and the Member User will not hold RITMA responsible if he/she did not receive relevant information contained in the communications sent to the Member User mailing list.
