Your healthcare provider will facilitate the collection of a blood sample and will provide the sample and your information to BillionToOne for the purpose of providing laboratory testing services (the Service). BillionToOne will process your blood sample; DNA will be extracted from the submitted sample and sequenced. BillionToOne will store your genetic sequencing and related data as required by applicable laws and regulations. All sequence data may be used for regulatory compliance or healthcare operations, and de-identified for internal quality control, validation studies, and internal research and development purposes.
BillionToOne will retain your sample (blood and/or extracted DNA) only for the maximum duration permitted under applicable law or regulation, after which point it will be destroyed. Until such time that your sample is destroyed, BillionToOne may de-identify your sample and use or store it for regulatory compliance purposes; internal quality control; laboratory validation studies; or internal research and development.
