Privacy Policy

by Philip Shaddock

I respect the privacy of others. I will not share any information about you or your DNA results with a third party unless I have your explicit consent.

It is the nature of genetic genealogy to determine paternal ancestry by comparing one person's DNA results with another. In my DNA results spreadsheet, on the Shaddock DNA Group facebook page and on this website, I publish and discuss publicly the DNA results of my genetic cousins using their names and sometimes the location of their families (town or county). As a member of our facebook group, as a member of the Shaddock - Shattuck DNA project at Family Tree DNA, as a member of the subscriber email list providing DNA results updates, you express your consent to discussions of your DNA results that include your name and sometimes sample DNA kit numbers.

Those who have tested under the free DNA test program can have their DNA sample destroyed at any time. The DNA results can be voided upon reimbursement of their purchase cost.
