Non-Subscribers Can Seek Justice and Compensation Following the 23andMe Data Breach
The recent data breach at 23andMe has raised concerns and questions for many individuals, especially for those who are not subscribers of their DNA testing services. While subscribers were directly impacted by the breach, non-subscribers may also have been affected due to their family members using the company’s services.
How Non-Subscribers May Have Been Impacted
Even if you have never used 23andMe, your personal and sensitive genetic information could have been compromised through their data breach. This is because the company collects and stores genetic information not only from their subscribers, but also from individuals who have used their services through family members.
For example, if your sibling or parent used 23andMe, their genetic information would also contain a portion of yours. Therefore, if their data was breached, it could potentially expose your personal information as well.
Your Rights as a Non-Subscriber
As a non-subscriber of 23andMe, you may feel helpless in the face of this data breach. However, it is important to know that you have rights and options for seeking compensation. Non-subscribers whose relatives’ genetic information was affected by the breach may be able to take legal action against 23andMe for their negligence in protecting personal data.
