Whether it is to learn more about their ancestry or their predisposition to disease, every day, U.S. citizens send their genetic information to testing services. But
many U.S. citizens are unaware of what happens to their genetic information after they send it in. Services that conduct genetic tests on consumers receive a wealth of genetic information that includes both intimate and personally identifiable information.
These services are then able to sell their consumers’ data to third parties without their consent.
