Disclosure of Your Information
We may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process (such as a judicial proceeding, court order, or government or regulatory inquiry), (ii) to law enforcement authorities or other government officials based on a lawful disclosure request, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of our company, our customers or others.

We may disclose aggregated, de-identified information that does not identify any specific individual (e.g., aggregated trends about the use of our Services) without restriction.
With your consent, we may include your anonymized genetic information and results in our research database in order to support further research in genetics. With your consent, we may also use your de-identified sample and genetic information in our research efforts. We may engage in research with public, private and/or non-profit third parties to study a specific group or population, to identify potential areas or targets for genetic testing development, or to validate or improve existing technologies or processes. You can opt out of our research database and/or third party research by updating your Account settings or by contacting us directly. If you notify us that you wish to opt out of the research database and/or third party research, please note that we may not be able to recall anonymized or de-identified data that has already been released to the database or third parties. We will promptly update your information following an opt out request to exclude your information from any subsequent research related disclosures.
How We Protect Your Information
We have implemented a variety of measures designed to secure your information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure.
Your information is stored behind secured networks and is only accessible to a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology or other encryption technology, or will use our third party payment processors, who will use appropriate security procedures. We use regular Malware Scanning and implement a variety of other security measures when a user places an order, enters, submits, or accesses their information to maintain the safety of your Personal Information.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. You are responsible for keeping your Account username, password, or other security information confidential. You should not share your password with anyone. When accessing your account from a public or shared computer, you should use particular caution so that others are not able to view or record your password or other information.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted to our Site. Any transmission of information to us is at your own risk. We are not responsible for the circumvention or breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. In the event of a data breach, we intend to comply with all applicable federal and state reporting requirements. You agree that we are not liable for the unauthorized release of your information, unless such release was the result of gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of Stratify Genomics.

You may also send us an email at email@example.com to request access to, or to correct or delete any Personal Information that you have provided to us. We may not be able to delete your Personal Information except by also deleting your Account. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect. In addition, we may be required to maintain certain information to comply with legal and regulatory requirements. If we delete your information from our active databases, some or all of your information may remain archived in back-ups for compliance with legal, regulatory, and other requirements. In addition, information that has already been de-identified, anonymized, and/or aggregated may not be retrievable or traced back for destruction, deletion, or amendment.
