Our Privacy Policy  




Privacy Policy

GeneDetect.com Limited has created this Privacy Policy in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy and to the protection of your information. 

As part of the normal operation of services, we collect and, in some instances may disclose information about you. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To protect your information we have implemented the most advanced e-security measures available today. The means by which we secure your information are also explained in detail. 

1. Information GeneDetect.com Ltd collects. 

Our "Customer Account" set up form requires users to give contact information (like your name and email address), unique identifiers (like your password), and demographic information. Certain information, such as passwords and e-mail addresses are collected in order to, among other things, verify your identity and for use as logins, passwords and account numbers in our record system ("Contact Information").

Our website GeneDetect.com uses a cookie to temporarily store information on your computer. The cookie we deposit allows our shopping basket software to "remember" the contents of your shopping basket as you move between pages within our site. This cookie is removed from your computer as soon as you finish shopping with us. Therefore it can not be used by other sites to track your shopping habits or to identify you. 

If you decide to purchase any products or services we offer, then we may need to collect certain financial information, such as your credit card number, credit card expiration date, and billing address ("Financial Information"). Financial Information that is collected is used to check your qualifications for registration, to bill you for products and services, and for other purposes. 

We do not share your Contact or Financial Information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to provide you with the products and services offered on our site. 

2. Our Use of Your Information. 

If you give us your permission, we may use customer "Contact Information" from the "Customer Account" setup form to send you information about GeneDetect.com and updated promotional material from us and in some cases some of our partners. You will always be able to "opt out" of these mailings. 

3. Our Disclosure of Your Information. 

We never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described in this Privacy Policy without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses. 

GeneDetect.com will never willfully sell or rent for consideration any personally identifiable information about you or your business (including associated email addresses) to any third party without first receiving your permission. 

However GeneDetect.com cannot ensure that all of your personally identifiable information will never be disclosed in ways not described in this Privacy Policy. For example, we may be required to disclose personally identifiable information to the government or by court order under certain circumstances, or other situations may arise requiring such disclosure. In addition, you authorize us to disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate. 

Our sites may contain links to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other Web sites. 

4. Security.

In order to maximize protection of your information, GeneDetect.com uses state of the art technology to protect your "Contact and Financial Information" from use, misuse or alteration by unauthorized third parties. 

Securing your "Contact and Financial Information": 

Every time you send us your "Contact and Financial Information" we use industry-standard 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology to prevent the information from being "read" by an interested third party as it is transmitted over the Internet. When implemented correctly SSL does not prevent your data being intercepted, rather it ensures that should it be intercepted it is unreadable by the third party. 

In Netscape Navigator versions 4.0 and higher, the padlock on the menu bar will change from open to closed indicating an SSL-secured session. In earlier versions of Netscape, the key in the lower left hand corner of the browser window will change from being "broken" to being solid.

In Internet Explorer 3.x, 4.x, 5.x and 6.x SSL is indicated by displaying a padlock in the lower-right corner of the browser window. 

Secure Sockets Layer, SSL, is the industry standard security technology for creating an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between our web server and your browser remain private and integral. SSL is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers. In order to be able to generate an SSL link, a web server requires an approved and validated SSL Certificate. Our certificate was issued by Equifax (www.geotrust.com) the world's second largest secure Certificate Authority (CA).

Securing your "Credit Card details":

To ensure that your credit card details are even more secure, we never actually store your unencrypted (readable or plaintext) credit card number, name and address on our server. Rather your card details are sent encrypted directly to our credit card processing partner, WorldPay Ltd (www.worldpay.com).  WorldPay is one of the longest established companies in eCommerce world wide today. By using Thawte 2048 bit digital signatures for authentication and 128 bit SSL at the browser level for encryption you can be assured we have implemented the most advanced electronic security measures available today to keep your credit card details secure. 

5. Disclaimer.

Of course, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and GeneDetect.com does not warrant that your information will be absolutely secure. Any transmission of data on or through the use of the GeneDetect.com site is at your own risk. 

6. General. 

If you have any questions about this privacy statement or the practices of this site, please send an email to Security@GeneDetect.com 

Or, you can send mail to the following postal address: Suite 4/209 Taylor Street, Auckland, New Zealand.
