TO PROVIDE YOU WITH SERVICES:
We will process your Information to provide you with our Services, creating your account, dispatching your kit, processing your payment, analysing your Biological Sample and providing your DNAfit results.
PROCESSING OF YOUR SENSITIVE PERSONAL INFORMATION:
We will only Process your Sensitive Personal Information with your prior, written and express consent in order to provide you with the Services in terms of the agreement entered with you.
On receipt at the returns centre, your sample will be validated against your online activation to ensure we have your consent before any laboratory processing begins. Samples returned without activation will be securely held at the returns centre until activation is successful, or for no longer than 3 months when the sample will be securely destroyed.
At the lab, Blood samples are securely destroyed as soon as the analysis is complete due to the limited life of the sample quality. Saliva samples may be retained for a maximum of 4 weeks should any necessity arise to re-analyse during that time, after which the sample is then securely destroyed.
Sensitive Personal Information processed by our lab and further stored on the DNAfit database is maintained in a Pseudonymised format.
