When you access a Ginkgo product or one of our Partner’s products, we will share the needed information with the Partner so that the Partner can fulfill your order. We enter into a written agreement with each Partner that requires the Partner to do the following:
● maintain the confidentiality and security of the Account Information and Self-Reported Information shared with them; and
● use the Account Information and Self-Reported Information only for the specific purposes that you have authorized.
We may disclose Account Information, Self-Reported Information, and information about your usage of our Services in the following circumstances unless otherwise legally compelled:

● If we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of Ginkgo, our users or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
We may also disclose your personal information:
We may publicly share descriptive statistics about aggregated data set/s, de-identified and aggregated Self-Reported Information, and usage of our, and/or Partners’ Services.
In case of your death or incapacitation, we may provide access to your account with us, including test results therein, to your verified executor or legally authorized representative. If you are seeking such access, you may contact us and/or the Partner you accessed the Services through.
Other than as described above, we will never provide your information to anyone for any purpose under any circumstances.

We strive to provide you with choices about the information you provide to us and our Partners. We have the following mechanisms to give you the following controls over your information:
Advertising Networks. We work with advertising service providers that collect non-personally identifying information from you when you visit the Site and other websites, to show ads for our Services that we think may be of interest to you after you visit our Services. If you do not wish to receive our personalized ads, you can visit the opt-out pages of the Network Advertising Initiative (https://www.networkadvertising.org) or the Digital Advertising Alliance (http://www.aboutads.info) to learn about how to opt out of receiving personalized ads from their member companies.
Google Analytics and/or Facebook and other advertising platforms We may work with Google Analytics and/or Facebook and/or other advertising platforms to better understand our audience and users, to improve our marketing campaigns, and to enhance our services. You can learn more about Google Analytics’ and/or Facebook’s privacy choices or opt out at any time.
If we have sent you a promotional email or other informational email not related to your order or account, the email will have an “unsubscribe” feature that will allow you to opt-out of receiving future email distributions.
8. How Do You Access, Correct, or Remove Your Information?
In General. You may contact us to request access to, correct, or remove any personal information that you have provided to us and/or our Partners. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal obligation or requirement or cause the information to be incorrect. Information that has already been de-identified and/or aggregated (including aggregated data set/s) may not be retrievable or traced back for correction or removal from any database.
Account Closure. You may also close your account with us (“Account”) by contacting us or through your account settings. After closure of your account, you will not be able to access any Services from us without creating a new account.
After you close your Account, we retain some Account Information in your account related to your Service history. This enables us to provide ongoing support regarding your prior Services, and is also necessary for accounting, audit, and compliance purposes. We may also retain backup copies and archival files of your information to satisfy our state and federal legal obligations or regulatory requirements. However, we will not share your information with any Partner or third party, except for information that has already been shared with your consent.
9. How Do We Keep Your Information Secure?
We limit access to your information to our employees and contractors who we believe need access to it to provide Services to you or to do their jobs. In addition, we put in place industry standard physical, technical, and procedural safeguards designed to secure your Account Information, Self-Reported Information, and any other personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure.
