Terms & Conditions

Informed consent

Advanced Genetic Diagnostics Pty Ltd, trading as Advanced Genetic Tests (AGT), provides an expert gene interpretation service that assesses your genetic profile and produces personalised reports based on your DNA. These AGT reports provide insights that enable you to make more informed health and wellness decisions.

By submitting your DNA sample for testing, you agree and consent to the following:

  • You are at least 18 years of age, and any sample provided is either your own, or that of a person for whom you are a parent or legal guardian, or of a person from whom you have obtained legal authorisation to provide their sample to AGT.
  • AGT will extract your DNA from the saliva sample you provided. An additional sample may be required if the volume or quality of the sample is not adequate.
  • AGT will securely store your DNA sample indefinitely. You can formally request at any time for your sample to be destroyed.
  • AGT will interpret your results and provide a personalised report only for the AGT test(s) requested by you and/or your doctor.
  • This report will be available for you to download from your account on our secure online portal.
  • In the future, as new genetic discoveries become available, AGT may communicate with you to offer you the opportunity for further report(s) at a reduced cost. You will be able to opt-out of receiving further genetic information at any time.
  • Your reports and genetic data will be treated as your property and will never be disclosed or shared with third parties including your insurance company and employer.
  • Your health insurance (e.g. extras and hospitals) won’t be affected in any way. By law, health insurers aren’t allowed to use risk assessments to determine whether or not to cover you.
  • Likewise, no other form of insurance, like car insurance or home insurance will be affected, as those have little to do with your health profile.
  • Life insurance companies may request that you provide them with copies of any genetic test results you know. From 1 July 2019, you won’t have to disclose the results of your genetic test if your life insurance benefit amount falls below a certain threshold ($500,000).
  • For evaluation, research and marketing purposes, AGT may analyse results of your DNA but if so will only do this after any personal identifiers have been removed.
  • The AGT report’s accuracy may be affected by medications/nutritional supplements that you may be taking and by other non-genetic factors.
  • All data and any results generated are held confidentially under a secure data protection protocol.
  • Your information and results will be kept in strict accordance with the relevant laws of Australia and the AGT Privacy Policy.
