1. Acceptance of Terms
2. Description of the Services
The Services include access to our website, mobile application, and personal genotyping services, including the collection, processing, and analysis of your DNA sample. Each new feature, unless explicitly stated otherwise, that augments or enhances the current Services shall be subject to the Terms of Service. You acknowledge and agree that the Services provided are based on the current state of the art genetic research and technology in use by Genecorp at the time of the purchase or viewing and are provided “AS-IS”. You acknowledge and agree that the Services which Genecorp provides may change from time to time and that Genecorp may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing some Services (or any feature within the Services) to you or to users generally at Genecorp sole discretion, without prior notice to you.
3. Considerations Regarding Genecorp Services
Genecorp does not intend to provide you with specific medical advice, but rather to provide you with information to help you and your healthcare provider better understand the health risks and benefits associated with your genotype. The services which Genecorp provides are for informational purposes only and cannot be used as a substitute for professional medical advice or for diagnostic purposes. The information provided to you does not identify an existing medical condition and is not a genetic diagnosis of disease. If you have specific concerns about your health status or genetic testing, you should consult with a physician or other healthcare provider.
If we provide to you on our website, mobile application, or any other channel, any recommendations that identify for you potentially actionable information (based on your Genetic and Self-Reported Information and scientific literature or research), this information is intended for informational purposes only and for discussion with your healthcare provider. Any information or opinion provided on the fitlife platform, including but not limited to information provided via Genecorp health coaches, is intended for information purposes only and not to be acted upon without discussion with your physician or other healthcare provider.
Genecorp does not provide medical services, diagnosis, treatment or advice and any information provided should not be used as a substitute for the advice of a qualified healthcare provider.
While Genecorp attempts to keep all the information in the Services up-to-date, the science and knowledge in the genetic testing area changes quickly, and the Services should not be considered error-free. Analysis of results is based on currently available information in the medical literature and scientific databases.
Genecorp makes no warranties or representations, either express or implied, as to the content of the Services, and assumes no responsibility for any consequences relating directly or indirectly to any action or inaction you take based upon the information you receive.
You must accept the Privacy Statement in order to use the Services. If you do not accept the Privacy Statement, you may not use the Services. Please refer to the Privacy Statement. If you have questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
Risks & Limitations
Risk of Laboratory Error or Technical Problems
Genecorp operate our own laboratory and have put in place stringent international quality standards for handling samples and DNA test processes. We have had external validation completed by the Core Facilities-Genome Sequencing Laboratory which are NABL Accredited. Based on CFGSLs external validation, our proven genotyping accuracy is 99.9%
Though Genecorp take the most stringent measures in the industry and preventive measures for sample handling and process, nonetheless, laboratory error can occur, that may affect tests results.
Technical problems may occur despite following best practices. An example of an error that may arise is failure to obtain an interpretable result for a particular SNP. It is sometimes not possible to obtain a testing result for a particular variation due to circumstances beyond Genecorp control, in which case it may not be possible for Genecorp to conclusively report on a genetic change that might be predictive of a condition. As with all medical laboratory testing, there is a small chance that the laboratory could report false positive or false negative results. A false positive result means that a genotype is reported as being present when it is actually not present. A false negative result means that a genotype is not reported as being present when it actually is present.
Some individuals may find that their results are not consistent with Genecorp selected peer-reviewed scientific research. The association between genetic variations and the information within this report is an active area of scientific research, and future scientific discoveries might alter our understanding.
