About this policy
The Global Health Network (“TGHN”) is a collaborative project involving research organisations from all over the world, each of whom is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.
The University of Oxford (the “University”) is currently acting as the coordinator for the site infrastructure, but each community of practice is coordinated by a TGHN collaborator. A list of the current TGHN collaborators and the communities of practice they are coordinating is available here.
Any subsequent reference to the University in these terms shall include the TGHN collaborators from time to time involved in the project. However, unless expressly provided otherwise, the liability of TGHN collaborators in connection with TGHN or the site shall be several and extend only to any loss or damage arising out of their own acts and omissions.
