How We Secure Your Data

We have implemented appropriate security practices to prevent unauthorized access to and disclosure of customer information, maintain data accuracy, ensure the appropriate use of information, and otherwise safeguard your information, including industry standard encryption methods.

If You Purchase Our DNA Collection Kit
  • Your DNA sample is secure when you mail it to us because there is no personally identifiable information attached to the kit itself.
  • Your DNA sample is de-identified when it reaches our lab and your personal and registration information is stored separately from any genetic information.
  • Your DNA data is then encrypted and transferred by our lab to generate your essential nutrition report. This direct transfer of your data remains de-identified, involves no third parties, and is encrypted at all times.
  • If you choose not to opt-in to biobanking, your DNA sample is destroyed after it is analyzed.

Whether you use our DNA collection kit or upload your existing DNA data file from AncestryDNA or 23andMe, your DNA data is stripped of personal details (like your name and contact information) so that you cannot be identified as an individual in our system.
