Data privacy and security are foundational principles at Songbird Life Science. Keeping client information safe is at the heart of everything we do.
Information we collect
We collect information about clients when they submit a query through our website, place an order for products or services, and through the course of providing them with products and services.
The types of information we collect about clients includes:
Account data that clients provide when requesting information about our products and services. This may include first and last names, email addresses, locations, contact telephone numbers, job titles, place of employment, etc.
Data about selected products and services that clients are interested in or have purchased, as well as information about their application or deployment of these products and services.
Cookies and analytics
We are continuously improving our website and services with analytics tools, such as Google Analytics, to help us understand how visitors use our websites, products, and tools, as well as what they like and dislike, and where they may have problems. While we maintain ownership of this data, we do not share this type of data about individual users with third parties. You can prevent your data from being used by Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.
We do not require any personally identifiable information (PII) for our testing solutions. Users of our products are required to label samples only with opaque identifiers that provide no information linking samples to any person.
We may periodically spot check our database to ensure that users are properly labeling samples.
The PCR tests processed on the Hyris bCUBE are genetic tests. While samples collected from people do contain human DNA, no information about human DNA is collected or stored. Only information about the presence or absence of specific genetic markers from pathogen DNA is collected.
Operators are required to dispose of samples using appropriate biohazard procedures after testing is complete.
