Genavli Biotech Privacy Policy

(Effective January 01, 2018)

This privacy policy governs your use of the DNA ancestry test ("Test") provided by Genavli Biotech Private Limited ("Genavli"). The Test is aimed at generating a reference genotype panel representing the diverse ancestral populations of South Asia.

Genavli ("we" or "us" or "our") values the privacy of the customers. This Privacy Policy describes our information practices, how we collect and use the Personal Information that we gather for the Test.

By agreeing to buy the Test, the participant ("you", "your") are consenting to our use of your information as set forth in this privacy policy, now and as may be amended by us.

What information will be collected

Genavli Biotech will collect your saliva ("sample") by shipping you a saliva collecting kit. DNA will be extracted from your sample followed by ultra-low coverage whole genome sequencing. You will be asked to optionally provide personal information to us while registering for the Test. We will collect the following information from you: full name, email address, your native language and your geographical State, Division or Province.

how will your information be used

After receiving sequencing data for your sample, we will provide you with the ancestry estimates for the sample you provided. The results you see will be an estimate of your ancestry based on our current knowledge. These estimates will get more and more accurate as we sequence more individuals from India. Genavli will also use your anonymized data (data that is stripped of all personal information) to perform aggregate analysis across multiple samples using statistical genetics algorithms to improve the accuracy of our ancestry estimates. 

Control and sharing your DATA

You own your data. Genavli will not share or sell your individual level data with any third-party without your prior consent and knowledge. We will use your anonymized data for our own research purpose and future use for other projects. This anonymized data is stripped of all personally identifiable information (your name, postal address, email address, payment information).

what information will you receive

You will receive the ancestry estimates derived from analysis of the sample you provided. The results that you receive will be based on the current state of knowledge regarding the genetics of Indian population. You will receive lifetime updates to the ancestry estimates as we improve the accuracy of our algorithm.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
