  6. Providing the Products
    6.1 The costs of delivery are included in the service.
    6.2 We will begin the services on the date we accept your order. The estimated completion date for the services is as told to you during the order process.
    6.3 We will deliver the products to you as soon as reasonably possible and in any event within 14 days after the date on which we accept your order.
    6.4 If our supply of the sampling kits is delayed by an event outside our control, then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any services you have paid for but not received.
    6.5 It will be your responsibility to keep the sampling kit safe from the time it is delivered to you.

If you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying our services late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the correct information.
    6.8 We may have to suspend the supply of a service to update the product on our website to reflect changes in the provision of the services.

  12. Our Responsibility for Loss or Damage Suffered by You
    12.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
    12.2 You are responsible for using the products relating to our service safely and as directed. You must behave sensibly so as not to hurt or injure yourself or others. In the absence of any negligence or other breach of duty by us, the use of our products is entirely at your own risk.
    12.3 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products including the right to receive products which are: as described and match information we provided to you and any sample or model seen or examined by you; of satisfactory quality; fit for any particular purpose made known to us; supplied with reasonable skill and care; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
    12.4 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products online for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
    12.5 If, while the returned sampling kit is in our possession, it becomes damaged or unviable, we will send you another sampling kit for you to provide an additional sample to us. All costs will be covered by us.
    12.6 The data we provide is for information purposes only. We cannot be held responsible for any loss that may occur as a result of actions you take based on the data provided from the genetic testing. You will remain liable for any decisions made based on the data provided to you by us.
  13. How we May Use Your Personal Information
    13.1 We will only use your personal information as set out in our Privacy Policy on our website.
  14. Publication of Data
    14.1 We shall be entitled to publish information relating to the data collected as part of the provision of our services to you. All data published will be restricted to data relating to the samples processed and will be anonymised to remove any personal data. By accepting these terms and conditions you consent to the use of data collected under these terms in future publications, and to further the aims of our business.
  15. Other Important Terms  
    15.1 We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will contact you to let you know if we plan to do this. If you are unhappy with the transfer, you may contact us to end the contract within 7 days of us telling you about it and we will refund you any payments you have made in advance for products not provided.
    15.2 This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
    15.3 Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
    15.4 If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
    15.5 These terms are governed by Scots law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the Scottish courts. If you live in England or Wales, you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish courts or the courts of England and Wales. If you live in Northern Ireland, you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts. Nothing in these terms and conditions, including this clause, affects your rights as a consumer to rely on any mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which you are resident.
