1. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
1.1. PERSONAL INFORMATION
When you register with us for access to the Site, Platform or Services, and successfully complete the account registration process, you will become a “User” of the Company’s services. As a User, you will have the opportunity to create a profile (“Profile”) and to add information, data, and connections to the Platform including genetic information (“Platform Data”). At the time that you register, create a Profile, and at other times, we collect information that you provide and that may include information that personally identifies you, your company, or other entity, such as your name, address, telephone number, e-mail addresses, as well as other information that you provide to us or that you include in your Profile or account (together, your “Personal Information”). In providing Personal Information, Platform Data or other information as part of the Site, Platform or Services, you should not include health-related information such as medical conditions, names of providers, treatments and other care information, regarding yourself or any third party (such as a patient or research subject), particularly if such data can be used to link Platform Data to a particular individual. Certain uses of the Site, Platform or Services may require that you provide certain requested information, and if you do not provide such information you may not be able to use the Site, Platform or Services.
We recommend that you protect the private and sensitive information contained within your Profile and any Platform Data provided and consider carefully whether to permit any third party to access your Profiles or Platform Data. All Users are responsible for monitoring the Profile content and Platform Data, whether uploaded by the User or by a third party. Please note that you, and not the Company, are responsible for maintaining and protecting all Profile content and Platform Data. From time to time, we may check for updates to your data and/or require that you provide additional or new information or update information.
1.2. USAGE DATA
1.3. ACTIVITY DATA
When you or a third party or others provide, or we collect, information, or carry information, we may process and store such data and other related information (“Activity Data”) in order to provide the Platform or Services to you. Some Activity Data may be retained or not completely deleted. Accordingly, we cannot and do not guarantee that the Activity Data will be completely deleted, and therefore any Activity Data that you send or allow to be accessed is sent or provided at your own risk.
1.4. STATISTICAL DATA
We may use aggregated or pseudonymised genomic data, genomic data or metadata that you process on the Platform for statistical and research purposes (e.g. to create aggregated statistical data and results) and for purposes of product improvement.
2. COOKIES AND DO NOT TRACK
Additionally, your browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and across different websites. Our Site does not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means that we collect information about your online activity while you are using our Site. We do not collect online activity after you leave our Site.
3. HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND WHEN WE MAY SHARE THAT INFORMATION
4. SUPPORT SERVICES
Company may use your Personal Information to contact you regarding our services. For example, we may message you or provide a notification through an application to let you know about new releases, patches and other updates to the Site, Platform or Services.
From time to time, we may establish business relationships with other businesses that we believe are trustworthy and who have confirmed that their privacy practices are consistent with ours (“Service Providers”). For example, we may contract with Service Providers to provide certain services, such as hosting and maintenance, customer relationship management and data storage and management. We provide our Service Providers with only the information necessary for them to perform these services on our behalf. Each Service Provider must agree to use reasonable security procedures and practices, appropriate to the nature of the information involved, in order to protect your Personal Information and Activity Data from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Service Providers are prohibited from using Personal Information or Activity Data in any manner other than as specified by Company.
We may also work with third party marketing and advertising companies. These companies may collect and use information about your use of services in order to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you or for direct marketing campaigns. Advertisements may be shown via the Site or third party websites. These companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on your computer or device or use other similar technologies.

8. BE CAREFUL HOW YOU SHARE YOUR OWN INFORMATION
Please remember that any content you or any user uploads to the Site, along with any Personal Information or content that you or any user voluntarily discloses online or through the Platform or Services in a manner other users can view (a “Public Disclosure”), becomes publicly available to these other users, and can be collected and used by these other users, and transferred or made public without our consent. In particular, be careful not to include in, or attach to, any Platform Data any identifiers including, for example, labelling a file with an individual’s name, identifier, date of service or other similar information. You agree that any use or further disclosure of a Public Disclosure or any other content by another user of our services is not a use or disclosure by us. We do not control the policies and practices of any other third party site or service.
Additionally, when you share information with third parties, using the Site or otherwise, that information may be passed along or made public by others. Therefore, anyone with access to such information can potentially use it for any purpose, including sending unsolicited communications.
Company is committed to protecting the security of your Personal Information. We employ reasonable security measures designed to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access in accordance with accepted industry practices. Regardless of our efforts, no data transmission over the Internet or other network, including any of Company’s services such as the Platform Data, can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Accordingly, we cannot and do not guarantee the security of any information you or any user transmits on or through the Site, Platform or Services, and any information you transmit is sent at your own risk.
