Normal website usage

In general, you can browse the Gavi website without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information. The only information we gather during general browsing is from standard server logs. These include your Internet Protocol (IP) address, domain name, browser type and operating system, and information such as the web site that referred you to us, the files you download, the pages you visit and the dates and times of those visits.

Collection of personally identifiable information

If you register for a newsletter, log on to certain Gavi sites, provide feedback or apply for a job, you will be asked to provide personal information such as your name, postal address and e-mail address. This information is collected only with your knowledge and permission, and is kept in various Gavi databases and mailing lists.

Gavi sites with specific requirements to collect personal information may publish a privacy policy specific for that site. In these cases, the site-specific policies will be complementary to this general Gavi privacy policy, and will give additional details for that particular site.

For certain Gavi sites, registering or supplying personal information sets a cookie (see below). By doing this, Gavi will remember your details the next time you visit, so you do not have to re-enter the information. This helps us to provide you with a better service.


Normal website usage

The information gathered during general browsing of the Gavi sites is used to analyse trends and usage of the sites and to improve their usefulness. It is not connected with any personal information.

Personally identifiable information

Gavi may use the personal information you provide to:

  • contact you – either in response to a query or suggestion, or to send newsletters, documents, publications etc to you;
  • manage and process your job application;
  • “remember” your online profile and preferences; and
  • conduct statistical analysis.


Providing personal information on the Gavi sites is optional. If you choose not to provide personal information, you can still browse and use the sites, but you will not be able to carry out certain actions such as register for a newsletter or apply for a job.


At any time, you can cancel or modify your information by returning to the web page where you first provided the information, or contacting us here for further information.


Cookies are small pieces of information sent by an organisation to your browser. They are stored on your device to allow that website to recognise you when you visit it again. Gavi uses cookies for its own internal purposes, to track how users navigate through our website.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. The “Help” or “Internet Settings” functions within your browser should tell you how. Please be aware that opting to refuse or restrict cookies may impact on the functionality of our website.
