The privacy of all patients is protected under United States HIPAA laws. Federal law prohibits the release of patient records to unauthorized entities or individuals. In 2008, President Bush signed the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) that protects Americans against discrimination based on their genetic information when it comes to health insurance and employment.
At Gene2Know, you are entrusting us with your most personal information: your Genetic Code.
- From the beginning, your sample is identified by a barcode, not your personal biographical information. The only link between you and your genetic data is this barcode.
- We will never share your individual data without your explicit consent.
- Your genetic information is protected from your employer and insurance companies by the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA), which prohibits discrimination based upon genetics.
- Our internal policies and procedures are compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996, which prohibits the unauthorized disclosure of patient information.
- We will never provide your information to law enforcement unless we are compelled to do so by valid subpoena or court order.
- You may, at any time, delete your account, which will purge your personal information from our database.
