Privacy Commitment

The Global Pertussis Initiative (“GPI”) will collect information through its websites that can identify you (if provided by you), such as your name, address, phone number, email address, company name, and position. GPI may use this information to respond to your requests for information, products, or services. GPI may also collect information that will usually not allow us to identify you, such as information gathered through “cookies” (see below).

When you contact GPI via its website to request or to access information, you are asked to provide your personal information. By providing your personal information to GPI via its website, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and to receive communications from GPI.

The information you provide to us will be available to GPI, its subsidiaries, and third parties working with or on behalf of GPI. Access to your information and the equipment processing it is at all times restricted to appropriate staff. Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy, GPI will not trade, sell, release, share, or transfer your personal information for use by any business outside of GPI or Sanofi Pasteur SA without your consent, or in a form other than what was disclosed to you at the time the information was collected, unless permitted or required by law.

GPI reserves the right to disclose all information collected to the extent required by law or to respond to judicial process. GPI may also provide any or all collected information to a third party in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of the business of the particular website to which the information relates if such third party agrees to treat all such information substantially in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

GPI takes reasonable measures to maintain the confidentiality of your personal information regardless of the country where such information is stored or transferred to.
