HEALTH & GENETIC INFORMATION
Your health and genetic information is confidential and we make sure all information is stored in Biotracker. The primary use of genetic information is to assess your genetic predisposition and report this to you (please note that your health history is not used in this report). Following your genetic counseling , we prepare an action plan to achieve your health goals - this report utilizes your health history and genetic information.
De-identification of data
Before your blood/saliva/other sample enters our lab, we make sure it is assigned a unique ID and de-identified, so that your personal information is not accessible to all. Only authorised personnel from our team have access to this information. Throughout the processing, your sample is tracked by Biotracker.
Considering the importance of genetic and health information in research, we use this information without any personal identification for further analysis, with customer’s consent. During sample collection, we send out a consent form to all customers.
We do not share any information with unaffiliated parties, except where required to provide you or your organization the ability to use the product as desired or where required to do so by law. If your sample has come to us from a channel partner or a healthcare provider, they may have access to your reports and other information. Mapmygenome will not be held responsible for any violation of privacy in such cases.
In the future, Mapmygenome may sell business units, product lines, or other assets. In such cases, customer information may be one of the transferred business assets. Also, if Mapmygenome or substantially all of its assets were to be sold, customer information would be one of the transferred assets.
