THIS PRIVACY POLICY WAS LAST UPDATED ON JANUARY 15, 2013. IF YOU HAVE NOT REVIEWED IT SINCE THAT DATE, PLEASE DO SO. YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE ANY OTHER NOTICE OF CHANGES TO THIS STATEMENT.

By using this Website and the Services you consent to the collection, use, storage and disclosure of your personal information by AncestryDNA in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Collection of Personal Information

AncestryDNA may collect the following information when you use the AncestryDNA website:

  • Personal Information. If you sign up for an AncestryDNA account, you are asked to provide personal information such as your name, email address, and an account password.
  • Cookies. AncestryDNA may set up or access cookies on your computer. Cookies save user preferences (such as the most recent search) and maintain a signed-in status. You can erase or block cookies from your computer if you want to (your help screen or manual should tell you how to do this), but certain AncestryDNA services may not work correctly or at all if you set your browser not to accept cookies.
  • Your Use of the Website. While you use the Website, AncestryDNA may collect information based on your interaction with the Website or from the devices or computers you use to access the Websites, including web log information, page views, IP addresses, geographic location (if detectable from a mobile device) all on an anonymized basis. This information will be used to manage the website, track usage, and improve website services.

You may decline to provide any personal information to AncestryDNA, although this may prevent AncestryDNA from being able to offer certain services to you. AncestryDNA offers several services that do not require registration for a user account, including searching the databases and browsing educational material.

Use of Personal Information

AncestryDNA does not share personal information submitted by you for the purpose of creating an AncestryDNA account with any third party. This information may be used internally to conduct research regarding current or future AncestryDNA services.

As our business continues to grow, we might buy or sell subsidiaries or business units. In these transactions, personal information is often one of the transferred assets. Also, in the event that AncestryDNA, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, personal information will, as a matter of course, be one of the transferred assets.

Security

AncestryDNA places great importance on the security of all personally identifiable information associated with its members. Accordingly, AncestryDNA takes appropriate precautions to reduce the risk of unauthorized access of personal information. These security measures include both electronic and physical security precautions.

Accessing Account Information

You are able, at any time, to edit your personal information or mailing list preferences. You may also delete your account. When an account is deleted, all information associated with that account is removed from the AncestryDNA system.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

This policy may be updated by AncestryDNA at any time. Changes to the privacy policy will be posted to the website.
