Limitations on the scope of our services:
We may contact you via email for support and counseling and are able to communicate in English only. The technical advances in DNA analysis are proven to be continuous. If you’d like your previous sample reanalyzed at a later date (prior to the sample being destroyed by us), we will provide any possible service pending on technological limitations and capabilities.
Description of Service:
Our service provides an analysis of genetic data associated with various traits. SNP Analysis will be used to learn what your DNA says about your personal traits and genetic makeup. We do not provide medical advice.

A sample must be submitted to Company for our DNA analysis. Instructions will be included in the kit that we will mail you, or you may review the website for such instructions. Please read and follow these instructions carefully, as failure to do so may result in contamination of your sample. Company takes responsibility for your sample only upon arrival at our premises.
Company will confirm receipt of your specimen by email notification, and will confirm when the analysis is completed. Samples are reviewed usually within 3-4 weeks, but occasional delays may result due to unexpected backlog. All reasonable efforts will be made to process your sample in a timely manner.
Your sample will be kept at Company for a limited processing time and will be destroyed upon completion of the analysis, unless you enter into our annual storage program. Samples will not be returned to you for any reason.
It is very important that you read and follow the kit instructions. If sample collection is not completed properly, there may not be enough DNA to process or it may get contaminated upon collection. In such case, if retesting is required, you will be required to provide a new sample.
Company reserves the right to refuse service to any one for any reason. Company may refund you if service is refused, but will not issue refunds for any refusal of service due to violations caused by you.
