Terms of Service
Evogenom Oy is a Finnish biotechnology company whose goal is to promote health and well-being through genetics. As a company we are committed to provide services which support ethical and good practices in all of our activities. We do not promote nor do we take part in activities which lead to discrimination or inequality. Our goal is to help our customers understand about their genome through genetical analysis and give them information about their inherited strengths, risks and opportunities.
The genetic information we provide to our customers include for instance information about their diet, exercise, information about their health risks, medication and recovery. We base our analysis on scientific research and there is a scientific reference for every part of our analysis. When you read the analysis, you must be aware that the information provided to you may upset you. But this is unlikely due to the nature of the analysis. Also keep in mind that, for example, in the health-related genetic information, the gene analysis is not a medical diagnosis, but rather a report of your genetic tendencies. If you want, you have the option not to include health risk related information in your gene analysis.
The analysis is based on scientific research. The researchers and their institutions are solely responsible for the reliability of the scientific research used in the analysis.
The purpose of the service provided by Evogenom Oy is to provide you with genetic information. To offer you our service, we will provide you with a sampling kit. The sample is easy to take. You just have to provide us with your saliva sample in the sterile test tube which we deliver for you. Send your sample back to us with the Evogenom return kit. The postal fee has been paid for you. We will deliver you the sampling kit and instructions after you have ordered the test (our delivery takes on average 2-5 business days).
When producing the service, Evogenom is responsible for ensuring that our analysis and production processes comply with the Finnish Personal Data Legislation. Your personal genetic data will not be stored. Your sample will be destroyed at the latest when the final analysis is delivered to you. Evogenom also never gives genetical data to third parties. The sample and the data are only used to produce genetic information for you.
Final genetic analysis includes your personal gene analysis. Gene analysis is sent to you as written and saved on a memory stick.
For security reasons, data for you is not on the Internet and your gene analysis is not processed on a computer connected to the Internet.
If you have any questions you can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are happy to answer any questions you have related to our services. You are also always welcome to visit us at our offices.
