Keeping data secure and private are a top priority at Molecular You. Only you have access to both your personal information and your health data, unless you have specifically chosen to share your data with someone else.
Here is how we classify your information:
Your personal information is any piece of information that can be used to identify you. This includes your name, contact information, address, and date of birth. Your personal information is never shared with anyone outside of Molecular You, and only necessary associates within Molecular You have access to your personal information (such as the Customer Service team).
HEALTH DATA (DE-IDENTIFIED)
Your health data is your de-identified health results including all your biomarker values and genetics. Molecular You uses this health data to create your report. Only necessary associates within Molecular You have access to your de-identified health data (such as our Data Science Teams and Action Plan Builders) and we only use aggregate de-identified health data for scientific and commercial research purposes where it is never linked to your personal information.
Linking your personal info and health data
Sophisticated controls for data de-identification and audit logging for compliance reporting are employed to ensure that your personal information is linked to your de-identified health data on our secure servers only by your unique MYID. You may choose to destroy this link at anytime by contacting us in writing at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sharing health data and personal info with others
Even if you purchased your test through your employer, or through one of our partner clinics, Molecular You will never share your report with anyone outside Molecular You without your consent (See how to share your report here).
However, there are risks when you choose to share your report with others. Any data that you voluntarily share with others in any way, could be used against your interests. For example, data that you choose to share with a Physician or other Third-Party Practitioner may become part of your medical record and those medical records could potentially become accessible to third parties including insurance agencies. Data that you share with family, friends or employers may also be used against your interests. Even if you share data that have no or limited meaning today, that information could have greater meaning in the future as new discoveries are made. As a result, you should be careful about sharing your health data with others.
Refer to your informed consent form for more information about how we protect, use, and store your de-identified data and personal information.
