Genetic data

Your saliva sample will be sent to laboratory for analysis. The laboratory will not have access to your personal information. A unique GenePartnerID will allow us to link data derived from your sample to your account. After analysis, the remaining DNA sample will be destroyed.

User accounts

Once you place your order, we will send a buccal swab kit to your address. In your welcoming letter you will find your unique GenePartnerID number and your password. You will be able to change your password when you login to your account for the first time. Your GenePartnerID number is fixed and cannot be changed.

You will use your GenePartnerID to run a matching program. It is your responsibility to keep your GenePartnerID and your password safe. In case of a lost password and/or GenePartnerID, you can request a password and/or GenePartnerID recovery. We will send an email to your address with your GenePartnerID and provisionary password.

GenePartner needs your email address to contact you, but you can change your email address once your account has been created. Email addresses cannot and will not be used to identify users.
