Privacy Statement

At Gonidio, we are committed to protecting your privacy. All genetic test results and any personal information are maintained under a strict policy of confidentiality.

 

Your DNA Sample

Your DNA sample will not be used for any other genetic testing besides those ordered by you. After your test has been completed and verified your DNA sample will be stripped of all personal identifiers and may be used as controls in future assays. Alternately if you prefer, you may submit a written request to have your DNA sample destroyed after completion and verification of your test.

 

Your Genetic Information

Your genetic information will not be directly associated with your personal information collected from the Intake Form, but will be stored in our secured database, maintained to facilitate client’s requests for replacing lost reports. Under no conditions will this information be released to third parties in a way that discloses personal information, except with your permission, unless required by law.

 

Your Personal Information

Your personal information will not be disclosed to anyone outside of Gonidio nor within Gonidio except as needed by those conducting the genetic screening and by those assembling your report, except with your permission, unless required by law.
