SECURITY & PRIVACY MEASURES
LunaDNA takes the security and privacy of your data very seriously. LunaDNA uses all reasonable technical, physical, and administrative controls to protect member Personal Information, Genomic, and Health Data from unauthorized access or disclosure and to ensure the appropriate use of this information.
All Genomic and Health Data is anonymized (or de-identified) so that the information does not identify you based on individual pieces of information or combinations of information. Your Personal Information is removed, such that you cannot be reasonably re-identified as an individual. Each type of data is uniquely tagged with a sequence of characters that is determined by a one-way hash function, designed in such a way that it is incredibly difficult to reverse engineer the given value. This disaggregated data is stored across separate private, cloud storage sites, which increases the barriers for anyone trying to access any member’s complete data profile. LunaDNA leverages Amazon’s HIPAA compliant infrastructure and has a business associate agreement (BAA) with Amazon cloud services based on the Office of Civil Rights guidance.
We maintain a high level of data protection via safeguards such as data backup, audit controls, access controls, and data encryption. Our site and application program interfaces (APIs) use Secure Socket Layer / Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) technology to encrypt all connections to and from our site and APIs to enhance security of electronic data transmissions. Additionally, we use the latest standards and processes for securing and encrypting all member information at rest.
The member is in control of the selection and safety of their own password, but LunaDNA has put measures in place to assist. Additionally, LunaDNA requires two-step verification for members creating their LunaDNA account, and provides an optional two-factor authentication for member's to enable.
Children's Privacy. LunaDNA is not designed for, intended to attract, or directed toward children under the age of 13, and does not accept contributions of any information or data from children under the age of 13.
California Privacy Rights. California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 permits users of our Website that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
