Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy 

GPI USA, Inc. ("GPI", “we”, “us”), is committed to protecting the privacy and security of your personal information. This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) describes how we collect, use, and otherwise handle personal information about you (“User”, “you”) and is directed to our current and prospective customers, partners, and suppliers, employees, job candidates and applicants, end users of any Products (defined below), and Users of our Sites (defined below). As used in this Policy, ‘personal information’ or ‘personal data’ mean information that relates to an identified or identifiable individual. 

GPI provides blood donor management software (“Products”) to blood donation centers, health care facilities, and other organizations handling blood donations or interacting with blood donors. Typically, our Products are used by our customers on their own premises and in their own environments and we generally do not have access to the information processed by the Products unless we are providing configuration services, customer support or success services, quality assurance, testing or other professional services, or for administrative purposes. When we do have access to personal data of individuals, it is typically as a service provider or supplier to our customers and partners, with limited exceptions, such as, for example when we collect information: 

  • Through our websites https://www.gpiusa.com/https://www.hemasoftusa.com/, related sub-sites and other websites and mobile applications that we provide (the “Sites,” which are included in the Products). 

  • For our advertising, marketing, promotion, industry outreach and educational efforts (which are primarily in a business-to-business context versus direct to individual consumers). 

  • In our relationships with employees, contractors, applicants and administrative and operational vendors and suppliers. 

Additional terms may apply for specific Products. If such terms apply, they will control over any conflicting terms in this Policy to the extent permitted under applicable law.
