Giving Ancestry Website Your DNA Could Cost You Life Insurance
Sending a swab of saliva in the post to discover your genetic background sounds simple, but Ancestry.com has come under fire for its terms and conditions, which grants the company “perpetual” license to keep and use your DNA – however way it likes.
The clause is included in the company’s terms and conditions, which also outlines how the information could later result in a customer being denied insurance due to diseases in their DNA – should you fail to opt out of one of its 'informed consent' options.
Submitting DNA to the site gives Ancestry “a perpetual, royalty-free, worldwide, sublicensable, transferable license to host, transfer, process, analyze, distribute, communicate, and display your submission for the purposes of providing Ancestry’s products and services, conducting Ancestry’s research and product development, enhancing Ancestry’s user experience, and making and offering personalized products and services.”
