The Threlkeld One-Name Study does not collect personally identifying information about individuals, except when specifically and knowingly provided by such individuals. This information is used only for internal purposes, either to provide access to participant-only areas of the website, to respond to e-mail inquiries generated from our site, or to compile traffic analyses for our site. Furthermore, real names and e-mail addresses are never disclosed to any third party for any purpose.
We also do not store or provide DNA data. For the convenience of the Study's participants and at their option, we will make available links to DNA testing or comparison/matching websites where certain types of DNA data might be found.
Technology on the Internet is developing at a rapid pace, and we need to maintain our flexibility in the online arena. If we need to change our policy in the future, we will post these changes as soon as they go into effect.
