Notice of Privacy Practices
GeneticaLens does not knowingly collect personal information provided from children under 13 through any GeneticaLens web portal.

Collection of your Personal Information
GeneticaLens receives and maintains personally identifiable information provided by registered users, such as your email address, name, home or work address or telephone number.
GeneticaLens also receives and maintains anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites. When using the GeneticaLens Service, you are likely to access health-related information about you that is stored with GeneticaLens, and such information will then be available to GeneticaLens.
We may collect information about your interaction with the Websites. For example, we will use web site analytic tools on the Websites to retrieve information from your browser, including the site you came from, the search engine(s) and the keywords you used to find the Websites, the pages you view within the Websites, and your browser’s width and height. We will also use technologies, such as cookies and web beacons to collect information about the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take on the Websites. Additionally, we collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every web site you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring web site addresses.
Use of your Personal Information
GeneticaLens collects and uses your personal information to operate the GeneticaLens websites and deliver the services you have requested. GeneticaLens does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. GeneticaLens may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, or provide customer support. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to GeneticaLens, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
GeneticaLens does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
GeneticaLens Websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on GeneticaLens or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of GeneticaLens; and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of GeneticaLens, or the public.
Becoming a Registered User and Subscription
In order to access certain areas on our Websites you must first complete certain steps to become either a registered user or a subscriber. During these steps, you may be required to provide us with information (including Personally Identifiable Information) such as name, zip code and email address. This information is used to help us understand who uses our Websites, to operate and improve our Websites, and to deliver the services or carry out the transactions you have requested. The only information that GeneticaLens maintains about you is information that you provide on our Websites, which you may access at any time.
The GeneticaLens website uses "cookies" to ensure the integrity of the registration process and to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The cookie tells the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize GeneticaLens pages, or register with a GeneticaLens Web site or services, a cookie helps GeneticaLens recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on.
When you return to the same GeneticaLens Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the GeneticaLens features that you customized. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the GeneticaLens services or Websites you visit.
Use of web beacons
GeneticaLens web pages may contain electronic images known as web beacons--sometimes called single-pixel GIFs--that may be used to assist in delivering cookies on our sites and allow us to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services.
GeneticaLens may also employ web beacons from third parties in order to help us compile aggregated statistics and determine the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns. We prohibit web beacons on our sites from being used by third parties to collect or access your personal information.
Security of your Personal Information
GeneticaLens is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. GeneticaLens secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information is transmitted by GeneticaLens to other websites, it is protected through GeneticaLens’s use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Information Transferred As a Result of Sale of Business
As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets and, depending on the transaction, your personally identifiable information may be one of the transferred assets. In the event that we are acquired by another company, your personally identifiable information may be part of the assets transferred to the acquiring party. If this occurs, you will be notified if there are any material changes to the way your personally identifiable information is collected or used.
