02 Feb Fallout from Use of DNA Testing Kits Can be “Life Changing”, Lawyer Says
In a recent interview, Halifax privacy lawyer David Fraser said that the implications from using readily available DNA testing kits can be life changing, and not all users may be ready for the fallout.
Fraser points out that most users readily agree to the terms and conditions and privacy settings of DNA testing companies without even reading, which could lead them to be subjected to unexpected, and even unwelcome information that can get exposed in the event of a breach.
With this, Fraser urged users to ensure that they are signing up for the right kind of service with adequate privacy protections. However, this can be a big challenge as most DNA testing companies have privacy and cookie policies 15 to 45 pages long.
