Privacy Policy

Last Updated: March 30, 2016

Introduction. Your privacy is important, so IDbyDNA, Inc. (“IDbyDNA”) has created the following Privacy Policy to let you know what personally identifiable information (“PII”) we collect when you visit (the “Website”) and use the IDbyDNA service (the “Service”) that is operated at the Website, why we collect it and how it is used. This Privacy Policy does not cover use of biological data including biological sequence data that you may upload through the Service or through the Website (“Biological Data”). The Biological Data is not PII and is instead covered by your agreement with IDbyDNA for use of the service, which is the Terms of Service if no other agreement is in place.


This Privacy Policy explains the PII collection and use practices of the Service, as provided on the Website; it does not apply to other IDbyDNA sites, products or services. The terms “you,” “your,” and “yours” refer to a natural person using the Website, as well as any legal person the user is acting on behalf of, such as an employer. The terms “IDbyDNA,” “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to IDbyDNA, Inc. and its subsidiaries and affiliates. This Privacy Policy operates in conjunction with our Terms of Use, although in the event of a conflict between this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use or any other contract between you and IDbyDNA, the Terms of Use or other contract shall prevail. By using the Service or the Website, you consent to the data practices prescribed in this statement. We may periodically make changes to this Privacy Policy that we will include on this page. It is your responsibility to review this Privacy Policy frequently and remain informed about any changes to it, so we encourage you to visit this page often.


What Information Is Collected? “PII” is any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, home or other physical address, an email address, phone number or other contact information, whether at work or at home. IDbyDNA collects the following Personally Identifiable Information from you when you use our Service or Website: your first and last name, your email address, and optionally your phone number or other contact information. IDbyDNA also automatically records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, cookie information and the page you request. You may be able to choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features.


How The PII Used? IDbyDNA uses PII to provide customers with production information, support the Services, to notify users of technical updates or changes in policy or to deliver services. IDbyDNA may provide third parties with access to your information in the course of providing these services.


Is PII Shared or Disclosed? IDbyDNA does not rent, sell, or share Personally Identifiable Information it collects about you to or with third parties, except for such sharing as is necessary to provide the Services. Personally Identifiable Information collected from you is only used to complete and support your use of the IDbyDNA Service and to comply with any requirements of law. IDbyDNA may disclose Personally Identifiable Information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (1) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on IDbyDNA or the Website; (2) protect and defend the rights or property of IDbyDNA; or (3) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of IDbyDNA, its Website or the public.


In the event that IDbyDNA merges with or acquires another company, or sells all or substantially all of its assets or transfers operation the Service to another company (including any such transfer or sale that may happen in bankruptcy), we may sell or transfer the information you provide to us on this Website or the Service to a third party or share your Personally Identifiable Information with that Company.


Choice. Please be aware that this Privacy Policy and the choices you make on this Website or the Service will not necessarily apply to PII you may have provided to IDbyDNA in the context of other, separately operated, IDbyDNA products or services.
