Great news, and fast on the part of LivingDNA.
Yesterday, I wrote about indemnity language required when downloading your raw data file from LivingDNA.
LivingDNA said last night that the verbiage did not really reflect their intentions.
Today, they have modified their terms going forward and retroactively, according to David Nicholson, Managing Director of LivingDNA, and have simplified the content.
Below is the new download verbiage, as provided by David.
I am greatly relieved. The indemnification language is gone and is replaced by you agreeing to, in essence, be responsible for yourself and release LivingDNA from anything bad that happens resulting from your download. (Caveat – I am not a lawyer. This is only my personal opinion.)
As always, please read all language and be sure you understand the verbiage and ramifications to your own situation, with LivingDNA and all vendors. Seek legal advice if you have questions or concerns with any legal document.
Thanks, LivingDNA, for listening to the community and addressing our concerns so quickly.
I receive a small contribution when you click on some of the links to vendors in my articles. This does NOT increase the price you pay but helps me to keep the lights on and this informational blog free for everyone. Please click on the links in the articles or to the vendors below if you are purchasing products or DNA testing.
Thank you so much.
