TERMS AND CONDITIONS
This disclaimer contains a copy of the Pillcheck® website (“Site”) and any related services (“Service”) that are provided subject to these Terms and Conditions (“Terms”). Your use of our site or ordering of any testing or consulting services will indicate your understanding of indicated conditions and limitations, and your agreement to be bound by these terms. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not use our Site or any of the Services.
PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE ANY MEDICATIONS, DISCONTINUE OR CHANGE DOSAGE WITHOUT A CONSULTATION WITH YOUR PHYSICIAN.
You warrant that any biological samples (cheek swab) that you submit to us for processing as part of the Service are your own, that you have followed the cheek swab collection instructions provided by us, and that you are 18 years of age or older. In the case when you submit a sample for your child or parent for whom you are a legal custodian, you take the responsibility to ensure that the sample is lawfully collected with the informed consent of your dependant. We do not take any responsibility for ensuring the identity of biological samples collected independently, and GeneYouIn Inc, the owner of the Pillcheck trademark, does not guarantee completeness of genetic data.
The Pillcheck service available on our Site includes genetic tests that are performed in certified testing laboratories according to Good Laboratory Practices, and are made available to you as a part of Your Report of drug response and drug-gene interactions. Only specific, well-identified DNA variations related to drug response are analyzed by Pillcheck. The results are used to generate a personalized report listing your body’s predicted response to all Pillcheck-covered medications. Pillcheck does NOT assess any genes related to disease risk or disease diagnostics and is only a tool to assist you and your healthcare providers to optimize your medications. By ordering these tests, you are acknowledging that you are aware of the nature of the test and the provided Service.
Drug response and dose estimates provided by Pillcheck reflect current clinical guidelines and require adjustment by your attending physician based on your age, gender, weight, kidney or liver function. The clinical guidelines, as well as knowledge of genetics, change from time to time; therefore, be aware that the quoted dose estimates in Your Report are expected to change without notice or permission. GeneYouIn, Inc is under no obligation to contact you or your physician or any other care provider regardless of the severity of implications revealed in Your Report or health data. You are responsible for maintaining up-to-date contact information on our Site in order to get access to the Report updates.
Your genetic and health data will be stored in Your Account, and you appoint GeneYouIn as a custodian of your genetic and health data. GeneYouIn complies with applicable legislation relating to the protection of Personal Information or personal data, including PIPEDA. By accepting these Terms you agree that your anonymized genetic and health data can be used for process improvement purposes.
PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE ANY MEDICATIONS, DISCONTINUE OR CHANGE DOSAGE WITHOUT A CONSULTATION WITH YOUR PHYSICIAN OR PHARMACIST.

All biological samples and DNA will be destroyed after 30 days following the obtaining of the test results; however, the information of your genetic code will be stored in Your Account, and you appoint GeneYouIn, Inc as a custodian of your genetic and health data.
