Hereditary Cancer Quiz

Hereditary Cancer Quiz Results Service

Patient Terms of Use/Privacy Policy

To facilitate communication between healthcare providers and patients, Myriad Genetic Laboratories, Inc. ('MGL') has developed a service to make available an online Hereditary Cancer Quiz, and facilitate sending a patient’s results of the Hereditary Cancer Quiz to their healthcare provider (together the “Hereditary Cancer Quiz Results Service” or “Service”). This document sets forth the terms of use for patients using the Service, as well as our privacy policy regarding information a patient may provide to us under the Service (the “Terms”).

References below to 'we', 'us' and 'our' are references to Myriad Genetic Laboratories, Inc. References below to 'Myriad companies' are references to Myriad Genetics, Inc. and its affiliates (including, but not limited to, Myriad Genetic Laboratories, Inc.).

We take the privacy of individuals and the security of their personal information very seriously. One purpose of these Terms is to set forth the principles governing our use of any personal information which you give to us, or we obtain about you, via the web. By using this Service, you agree to our use of your information as explained below.

Another purpose of the Terms is to clearly limit MGL’s obligations and liability to you in providing the Service. You should read these Terms carefully. Any dispute which may arise will be subject to these Terms and the laws of the State of Delaware, U.S.A.

We may change the Terms from time to time. You should check these Terms occasionally, in particular every time you use the Service, to ensure that you are aware of the most recent version, which will apply for each time you access the Service while it is in force. We will notify you of any changes where we are required to do so.

The Service

As part of the Service, your healthcare provider will send you a web link (“Link”). When you click on this Link, you will be forwarded to a website which provides the Hereditary Cancer Quiz. If you enter all of the relevant information, you will be provided with a Hereditary Cancer Quiz Result (“Results”). MGL will attempt to send the Results to your healthcare provider.

Sending Results to your healthcare provider

MGL will attempt to send your Results to the healthcare provider that provided the Link to the Hereditary Cancer Quiz. You agree and authorize MGL to do so. The healthcare provider that provided the Link to you provided an email address to us. MGL will make reasonable efforts to forward your Results to the email address provided by the healthcare provider.

Because the email address is given to us by your healthcare provider, we cannot ensure the accuracy of this information. As such, it is possible that your results could be sent to an individual besides your healthcare provider. Although we may require that doctors agree to provide an email address that is only accessible by authorized individuals, we cannot guarantee the confidentiality or privacy of the information that is sent (See “Limited obligations/liability” below).

Also, it is your sole responsibility to ensure that your doctor receives your Results. For many reasons, an email may not reach or be opened by its intended recipient; therefore we cannot guarantee that your doctor will receive your Results by email. Follow up with your doctor soon after sending your Results (See “Limited obligations/liability” below).

Finally, because the Link is specific to a particular healthcare provider in the context of a patient relationship, you agree to not forward the Link to anyone else. A generic Hereditary Cancer Quiz (that does not forward Results) may be found at: www.hereditarycancerquiz.com
