Juno Diagnostics Research may be sponsored by, conducted on behalf of, or in collaboration with third parties, such as non-profit foundations, academic institutions or pharmaceutical companies. Juno Diagnostics Research may study a specific group or population, identify potential areas or targets for diagnostic or therapeutics development, conduct or support the development of drugs, diagnostics or devices to diagnose, predict or treat medical or other health conditions, work with public, private and/or non-profit entities on genetic research initiatives, or otherwise create, commercialize, and apply this new knowledge to improve health care.

Your De-identified Genetic and Self-Reported Information may be used for Juno Diagnostics Research if you have consented to this use by completing a Consent Document.
Your Genetic Information and/or Self-Reported Information will be used for research purposes, but it will be de-identified and will not be linked to your Registration Information
Juno Diagnostics may use individual-level Genetic Information and Self-Reported Information internally at Juno Diagnostics for research purposes.
Juno Diagnostics may share summary statistics, which do not identify any particular individual with our qualified research collaborators and select third party research collaborators for Juno Diagnostics Research purposes.
Withdrawing your Consent. You may withdraw your consent to participate in Juno Diagnostics Research at any time by changing your consent status within your Juno Diagnostics Account Settings. Juno Diagnostics will not include your Genetic Information or Self-Reported Information in studies that start more than 30 days after you withdraw (it may take up to 30 days to withdraw your information after you withdraw your consent).

Information we share with third parties
General service providers.
We share the information described above in Section 2 with our third-party service providers, as necessary for them to provide their services to us and help us perform our contract with you. Service providers are third parties (other companies or individuals) that help us to provide, analyze and improve our Services. While Juno Diagnostics directly conducts the majority of data processing activities required to provide our Services to you, we may engage some third-party service providers to assist in supporting our Services, including, but not limited to, in the following areas:
Order fulfillment and shipping. Our payment processor processes certain Registration Information, such as your billing address and credit card information, as necessary to enable you to purchase a Juno Diagnostics kit from the online store. Our distribution centers ship your kit(s) to you, and in some cases help return your kit safely to us or to our third-party laboratory so your sample can be processed.
Our CLIA-certified genotyping lab. To use our genetic testing services, you must purchase a Juno Diagnostics Service testing kit, and ship your blood sample to us or our third party laboratory. Once delivered, receiving personnel at the laboratory remove and discard kit packaging, which in some cases may contain “sender information” (e.g., name, address), before testing personnel receive the samples for processing. Receiving personnel do not perform testing, and testing personnel handle blood samples that are only identified by a unique barcode. For samples processed by our third-party genotyping laboratory, when the laboratory has completed their analysis, they securely send the resulting Genetic Information to us identified by your unique barcode.
Cloud storage, IT, and Security. Our cloud storage providers provide secure storage for information in Juno Diagnostics databases, ensure that our infrastructure can support continued use of our Services by Juno Diagnostics customers, and protect data in the event of a natural disaster or other disruption to our Service. Our IT and security service providers assist with intrusion detection and prevention measures to stop any potential attacks against our networks. We have these third-party experts perform regular penetration tests and periodically audit Juno Diagnostics’ security controls.
Marketing and analytics. When you use our Services, including our website or mobile app(s), our third-party service providers may collect Web-Behavior Information about your visit, such as the links you clicked on, the duration of your visit, and the URLs you visited. This information can help us improve site navigability and assess our Marketing campaigns.
NOTE: Our service providers act on Juno Diagnostics’ behalf. We implement procedures and maintain contractual terms with each service provider to protect the confidentiality and security of your information. However, we cannot guarantee the confidentiality and security of your information due to the inherent risks associated with storing and transmitting data electronically.
For individuals located in the Designated Countries: Where personal data are transferred to a third country or to an international organization, Juno Diagnostics implements appropriate safeguards, such as contractual obligations, relating to the transfer.
“Targeted advertising” service providers
We may share Aggregate Information with third parties. This Information is different from “Individual-level” information and is not Personal Information because it does not identify any particular individual or disclose any particular individual’s data. Juno Diagnostics will ask for your consent to share Individual-level Genetic Information or Self-Reported Information with any third party, other than our service providers as necessary for us to provide the Services to you.
As required by law
Under certain circumstances your Personal Information may be subject to processing pursuant to laws, regulations, judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants, or orders. For example, we may be required to disclose Personal Information in coordination with regulatory authorities in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. Juno Diagnostics will preserve and disclose any and all information to law enforcement agencies or others if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with legal or regulatory process (such as a judicial proceeding, court order, or government inquiry) or obligations that Juno Diagnostics may owe pursuant to ethical and other professional rules, laws, and regulations; (b) enforce the Juno Diagnostics TOS and other policies; (c) respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third parties; or (d) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Juno Diagnostics, its employees, its users, its clients, and the public.
In the event that Juno Diagnostics goes through a business transition such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets your Personal Information will likely be among the assets transferred. In such a case, your information would remain subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Statement.
Access to your account
We provide access to your Juno Diagnostics data within your Juno Diagnostics account. You can access and download data processed by Juno Diagnostics within your Juno Diagnostics Account Settings and within applicable Reports, Tools, and features. If you lose access to your Juno Diagnostics account, in certain circumstances, we may require that you submit additional information sufficient to verify your identity before providing access or otherwise releasing information to you. If you choose not to submit the required documentation, or the information provided is not sufficient for the purposes sought, Juno Diagnostics will not be able to sufficiently verify your identity in order to complete your request.
You may access, correct or update most of your Registration Information on your own within your Juno Diagnostics Account Settings. You may also review and update your consent to Juno Diagnostics Research. Please note that you may not be able to delete User Content that has been shared with others through the Service and that you may not be able to delete information that has been shared with third parties.
As noted in Section 3.g. you may be asked to opt-in to receive product and promotional emails or notifications when creating your Juno Diagnostics account or when using our Services. You may view or update your notification preferences for marketing communications by visiting your Juno Diagnostics Account Settings, opting out at the browser or device level, or by contacting our Privacy Administrator at email@example.com. You can also click the “unsubscribe” button at the bottom of promotional email communications, as applicable.
Sharing outside of the Juno Diagnostics Services
You may decide to share your Personal Information with friends and/or family members, doctors or other health care professionals, and/or other individuals outside of our Services, including through third party services such as social networks and third-party apps that connect to our website and mobile apps through our application programming interface (“API”). These third parties may use your Personal Information differently than we do under this Privacy Statement. Please make such choices carefully and review the privacy statements of all other third parties involved in the transaction. Juno Diagnostics does not endorse or sponsor any API applications and does not affirm the accuracy or validity of any interpretations made by third party API applications.
In general, it can be difficult to contain or retrieve Personal Information once it has been shared or disclosed. Juno Diagnostics will have no responsibility or liability for any consequences that may result because you have released or shared Personal Information with others.
If you no longer wish to participate in our Services, or no longer wish to have your Personal Information be processed, you may delete your Juno Diagnostics account and Personal Information within your Juno Diagnostics Account Settings.
Juno Diagnostics implements physical, technical, and administrative measures to prevent unauthorized access to or disclosure of your information, to maintain data accuracy, to ensure the appropriate use of information, and otherwise safeguard your Personal Information. Our team regularly reviews and improves our security practices to help ensure the integrity of our systems and your information. These practices include, but are not limited to the following areas:
Encryption. Juno Diagnostics uses industry standard security measures to encrypt Personal Information both at rest and in transit.
Limited access to essential personnel. We limit access to Personal Information to authorized personnel, based on job function and role. Juno Diagnostics access controls include multi-factor authentication, single sign-on, and strict least-privileged authorization policy.
Your Responsibility. Please recognize that protecting your Personal Information is also your responsibility. We ask you to be responsible for safeguarding your password, and other authentication information you use to access our Services. You should not disclose your authentication information to any third party and should immediately notify Juno Diagnostics of any unauthorized use of your password. Juno Diagnostics cannot secure Personal Information that you release on your own or that you request us to release.
