Suisse Life Science Privacy Statement and Disclosure of Information

In order to use the Services, you must first acknowledge and agree to the Privacy Statement.

You may not use the Services if you do not accept the Privacy Statement.

Security
Suisse Life Science takes seriously the trust you place in us.

Suisse Life Science uses a range of physical, technical, and administrative procedures to protect the privacy of your personal information, including your genetic data.

  • Each starter kit comes with an unique code to protect your identity. Nobody knows your real name.
  • Your DNA sample will be destroyed right after the analysis.
  • All data traffic runs entirely over encrypted SSL (https). Sensitive data that would normally reside on our servers is disconnected entirely from our organization. Data is then split on server in different continents with redundancy, and they are never linked to your name for an extra level of confidentiality.

All your data is managed by DeepMind Ventures Ltd. We (or our contractors) store and process your User Info on computers in North America, Asia, Europe and elsewhere in the world, also with decentralized blockchain technology. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, to maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of information, Suisse Life Science uses a range of reasonable physical, technical, and administrative measures to safeguard your User Info, in accordance with current technological and industry standards. In particular, all connections to and from our Site are encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

Please recognize that protecting your User Info is also your responsibility.
We ask you to be responsible for safeguarding your password, secret questions and answers, and other authentication information you use to access our Site. You should not disclose your authentication information to any third party and should immediately notify Suisse Life Science of any unauthorized use of your password. Suisse Life Science cannot secure User Info that you release on your own or that you request us to release.
Your User Info may be transferred to – and maintained on – computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction.
Even though Suisse Life Science has taken reasonable commercial steps and efforts to prevent your Genetic Data, Participant Content and other User Info covered by this Privacy Policy from being accessed, used, intercepted or disclosed by unauthorized individuals in violation of this Privacy Policy, you should know and you acknowledge that Suisse Life Science cannot fully eliminate security risks associated with your information. You expressly acknowledge and agree that uploading, posting, providing, storing and/or using your Genetic Data, Participant Content and other User Info on or into the Site or other Services, and the use of all such Services, are all done at your sole risk and responsibility. You expressly acknowledge that Suisse Life Science is not liable for any special, indirect, consequential, incidental or punitive damages, costs, or liabilities whatsoever arising out of or resulting from your use of the Site or other Services, including from your uploading, posting, providing, storing and/or using your Genetic Data, Participant Content and other User Info and any loss, disclosure or use thereof.

Children’s Privacy
Suisse Life Science is committed to protecting the privacy of children as well as adults. Almost all services of Suisse Life Science are currently not designed or intended for use by children under the age of 18 – otherwise it will be specified.

You acknowledge and agree that Suisse Life Science has the right to monitor any use of its systems by its personnel at any time and maintain copies documenting such monitoring. Our Privacy Statement sets forth the only expectations of privacy any individual should have in Terms of Use of the Suisse Life Science Services, website, or other systems.

Suisse Life Science may also include your information in Aggregated Genetic and Self-Reported Information disclosed to third-party non-profit and/or commercial research partners who will not publish that information in a peer-reviewed scientific journal. Suisse Life Science will never release your individual-level Genetic Information and/or Self-Reported Information to any third party without asking for and receiving your explicit consent to do so, unless required by law. Further, you acknowledge and agree that Suisse Life Science is free to preserve and disclose any and all Personal Information to law enforcement agencies or others if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with legal process (such as a judicial proceeding, court order, or government inquiry) or obligations that Suisse Life Science may owe pursuant to ethical and other professional rules, laws, and regulations; (b) enforce the Suisse Life Science TOS; (c) respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third parties; or (d) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Suisse Life Science, its employees, its users, its clients, and the public. In such event we will notify you through the contact information you have provided to us in advance, unless doing so would violate the law or a court order. You understand that the technical processing and transmission of the Services, including your Personal Information, may involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks, or devices. Finally, Suisse Life Science may, in its sole discretion, restrict access to the website for any reason.

Please do not submit any unsolicited materials in any form to Suisse Life Science or any of its employees.
“Unsolicited materials” include, for example, confidential information, unsolicited ideas, original creative artwork, and other works, documents, and communications. This policy is intended to avoid potential misunderstandings if any Suisse Life Science products or marketing strategies seem similar to ideas submitted to Suisse Life Science. Any unsolicited materials received by Suisse Life Science will be deemed NOT confidential and will NOT be treated as confidential. Suisse Life Science has no obligation to read, consider, or keep confidential any unsolicited materials sent to Suisse Life Science. Suisse Life Science will have no obligation to you of any kind with respect to such unsolicited materials. By sending any unsolicited materials to Suisse Life Science, you grant to Suisse Life Science an unrestricted, irrevocable, world-wide, royalty-free license to use, copy, reproduce, perform, modify, create derivative works from, transmit, upload, display, post, publish, and distribute the unsolicited materials and their contents for any purpose, without compensation of any kind.

Business Transitions
In the event that Suisse Life Science – or DeepMind Ventures Ltd. – goes through a business transition such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your User Info will likely be among the assets transferred and disclosed to the acquiring or successor entity. In such a case, your information would remain subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy.
