VISIT TERMS OF SERVICE.
If you are an individual requesting the Test for yourself, Pro-GeneX recommends you speak with your physician or other qualified healthcare provider regarding any questions you may have about how your genes may impact how you process or respond to certain medications. Pro-GeneX’s Test can only be ordered by an authorized healthcare provider. You understand and agree that the Test is an informational test and not a diagnostic test, and that Results are intended solely for use by a healthcare provider. You should not make medical decisions or changes to medications or dosages without consulting a healthcare provider. Pro-GeneX does not provide medical services, diagnosis, treatment, or advice. Nothing contained in the Results or made available through the Service(s) (e.g., consults with genetic counselors or clinical pharmacists) is intended to constitute medical advice, the practice of medicine, or the provision of medical care or to otherwise create a patient-healthcare provider relationship between Pro-GeneX and you. The information provided by the Test (MyBestMed®) or Service is not a substitute for the advice of a personal physician or other qualified healthcare provider who can consider your Results in the context of broader medical management.
If you are a healthcare provider obtaining a patient sample or submitting an order for your patient, you represent and warrant that: (i) you are authorized in your jurisdiction to order the Test on behalf of your patient; (ii) you have advised your patient of the benefits, risks, capabilities, and limitations of the Test(s) and Service; (iii) you have obtained consent from your patient to share patient health information with Pro-GeneX, as required under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, as amended, and any other applicable data privacy requirements; (iv) you have confirmed that your patient has signed or will sign the Informed Consent, either in paper form or upon activating their MyBestMed® Test Kit; and (v) you will notify Pro-GeneX of any changes in patient information and consent status (e.g., changes in consent regarding sample storage or participation in optional research).
If you are an individual providing a biological sample yourself, please create an account and activate your MyBestMed® Test Kit to associate your sample with your account. During the account creation process, you may be required to provide us with some information about yourself (such as your email address or other contact information). You agree that the information you provide to us is accurate and that you will keep it accurate and up-to-date. Individuals setting up an account for themselves will be asked to create a password. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password. We will never request your password in a phone call, email, or chat. However, when you contact our customer support, genetic counselors, or clinical pharmacists, we may ask you to confirm certain PII (as that term is defined below) to verify your identity and help keep your account information secure. Please note that we cannot guarantee the security or privacy of information you send to us via the internet or wireless connection (for example, via email messages) until that communication reaches our information systems. You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or under your control. You will not permit or enable someone else to access the Services using your account username, password, or other security information. If you access your account from a public or shared computer, you should exercise caution to ensure your account information is not saved or retrievable on the shared device. You may not impersonate someone else or provide an email address other than your own. If you have reason to believe that your account or information you shared with us is not secure, then you should promptly change your login information and notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
deletion, or amendment.
Pro-GeneX reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate your account at any time, and to prohibit your access to the Portal and/or the Services, for any reason or no reason and without notice to you. If Pro-GeneX discovers that you are using the Services for non-personal or commercial purposes, or that you have provided false information related to a Test, for example, by misrepresenting information you share with it or providing another person’s sample and not correctly identifying the source of the sample, Pro-GeneX may immediately terminate your account. Any unauthorized use of the Portal and/or the Service can lead to your prohibition from the Portal and potential civil and/or criminal prosecution.
While you are not required to provide your PII, certain PII is necessary for Pro-GeneX to provide the requested Services and failure to provide such information will make it impossible for you to use the Service.
For example, the relevance, accuracy, and usefulness of the medication information provided in connection with the Test depends, in part, on you providing us with up-to-date, complete, and accurate information concerning the medications you are taking. By activating your account and submitting your PII, you are agreeing that we may store and maintain it in connection with the Service. Pro-GeneX also uses third-party vendors to facilitate the requested Service. The storage and use of PII is necessary for Pro-GeneX to carry out our healthcare operations in providing the Services you’ve requested. Pro-GeneX will retain your PII for as long as is necessary to carry out the function for which the information is being used and to comply with applicable laws and regulations, and as set forth in the Informed Consent. By taking a Test, you specifically agree to allow your PII to be securely communicated to your ordering provider, any other provider you select, as well as Pro-GeneX’s genetic counselors and clinical pharmacists, in connection with our Service. If you want to review or amend information Pro-GeneX holds about you, you may modify (as applicable) your account settings or your health history information, or contact Pro-GeneX at support@Pro-GeneX.com.
Please note that any changes you make will be reflected in active user databases within a reasonable period of time.
To receive the Services, you must provide a buccal swab sample in accordance with Pro-GeneX’s collection procedures. Your sample and PII will be transferred to Pro-GeneX’s laboratory in Georgia, USA, for processing. DNA will be extracted from the submitted sample and sequenced. Sequence data includes information about genes and regions relevant to the ordered Test, as well as other regions up to and including the entire genome. All sequence data may be used for regulatory compliance, and de-identified for internal quality control, validation studies, and internal research and development purposes. Analysis and reporting on genes and regions beyond those relevant to the ordered Test will not occur unless you consent to future products or services (e.g. Pro-GeneX Discovery), or unless you opt into third party research and Pro-GeneX’s research database. Only high-quality variant calls within the reportable range of an ordered Test will be considered part of the designated record set. Data that has not been analyzed and reported on will not be returned.
You may be asked to submit health history or genetic information about your relatives to Pro-GeneX. By sharing your PFHI or other personal or genetic information about your relatives (living and/or deceased), you (a) represent and warrant that you have obtained the express consent of your living relatives to submit their personal and medical information or reports, (b) waive any claims for privacy or data protection with respect to any and all such information and reports disclosed to Pro-GeneX, and (c) agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Pro-GeneX for any claims for privacy or data protection related to any and all such information
Clients who live outside of the US in certain jurisdictions may have the option of requesting that their personal information be accessed, updated, and/or removed at any time from our active databases, subject to the applicable laws and regulations of such jurisdictions. Such clients may also have the right to object to Pro-GeneX’s processing of their personal information and/or request that Pro-GeneX provide their personal information to another third party. Pro-GeneX may require that such request be provided in writing subject to applicable laws and regulations with respect to transfer of medical information. If you would like to access, update, object to processing, request provision to a third party, and/or request removal from Pro-GeneX’s active databases of your personal information, please contact support@Pro-GeneX.com. Any such requests will be honored within one month. If you believe Pro-GeneX’s processing of your personal information is inappropriate, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority or contact Pro-GeneX’s Privacy Officer at email@example.com.
You may be required to pay a fee to receive the Services. All fees are in US Dollars, and all payments will be processed by a US bank. If you pay with a credit or debit card, Pro-GeneX may seek pre-authorization of your account prior to your purchase to verify that the account is valid and has the necessary funds or credit available to cover the fees. We may also engage third parties to assist us with billing and collection efforts. The purchase and sale of the Services shall be deemed to occur in Georgia, US.
Pro-GeneX’s clinical Tests are physician-ordered. In the event that your ordering physician decides that the requested testing is not appropriate for you, you will receive a full refund. If you decide that you no longer want the Services, please contact us immediately. If you have selected the self-pay option, we will be unable to process a refund if more than 30 days has passed since the Test was purchased, or if our lab has received your sample. If the Services can be refunded, you will receive a refund on the purchasing card, if applicable, less shipping and handling fees and a $25 cancellation fee to cover the cost of the Test Kit if the Test Kit has already been shipped to you.
Please return your buccal swab sample as soon as possible, but in no event later than twelve (12) months after you receive your Test Kit. A timely return will help ensure that your sample is received before the expiration date of the swab and that the Results will reflect up-to-date PFHI that you provided. Your failure to timely provide a sample may result in the expiration of the Test Kit or any of its components. In such case, we would require a new sample for processing, and you may incur a replacement kit fee, plus shipping and handling fees.
On rare occasions, Pro-GeneX may be unable to process your sample either because of an issue with the sample you submitted or due to an issue at our lab. If this occurs, we will first attempt to process your sample at no charge to you. If we are still unable to process your sample, we will send you another Test Kit (at no charge to you) so that you may submit another sample for our lab to process. If your second sample cannot be processed, please contact support@Pro-GeneX.com to discuss your options.
If you require a replacement kit for any other reason, please contact support@Pro-GeneX.com to receive assistance regarding a replacement kit, and to determine whether replacement fees apply given your particular situation.
From time to time, Pro-GeneX may, at its sole discretion, make available promotional offers that may only be available to certain qualifying recipients (each, a “Promotional Offer”). Such Promotional Offers are only available to US residents and are void where prohibited. Unless otherwise expressly stated by Pro-GeneX, Promotional Offers may not be combined and may not be resold, forwarded or otherwise transferred to any third party other than the intended recipient, and may not be applied to Services or Tests paid for by insurance (private or government reimbursed). Pro-GeneX reserves the right to modify or discontinue Promotional Offers at any time, or to deny Promotional Offers used in breach of the Terms. If a Promotional Offer is provided to a recipient who is not eligible to receive or use a Test or Test Kit, the Promotional Offer will be null and void. Pro-GeneX is not responsible if any Promotional Offer is lost, stolen, or destroyed, or if a Promotional Offer is used without the intended recipient’s permission. Pro-GeneX also reserves the right to void Promotional Offers and close customer accounts if it suspects that a Promotional Offer is obtained, used, or redeemed fraudulently, unlawfully, or otherwise in violation of the Terms, or any applicable law, rule, or regulation.
IN THE EVENT A PROMOTIONAL OFFER IS NON-FUNCTIONAL, YOUR SOLE REMEDY, AND PRO-GENEX'S SOLE LIABILITY, WILL BE THE REPLACEMENT OF THAT PROMOTIONAL OFFER. IN NO EVENT WILL PRO-GENEX BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO YOUR USE OF A PROMOTIONAL OFFER, OR YOUR INABILITY TO USE A PROMOTIONAL OFFER, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STATUTE OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, WHETHER OR NOT PRO-GENEX HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.
When you redeem a Promotional Offer, you agree that the laws of the State of Georgia, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms and any dispute that may arise between you and Pro-GeneX related to your use or receipt of a Promotional Offer. Pro-GeneX reserves the right to end any Promotional Offer program at any time at its sole discretion. Promotional Offers are not eligible for a refund. Promotional Offers shall expire at the conclusion of the promotional period associated with such Promotional Offer. If no such period is specified, then such Promotional Offer shall expire twelve (12) months after its first offering or availability.

Your Results are based on currently available information in the medical literature and scientific databases, as well as laboratory informatics and algorithms that may be subject to change. You understand and agree that Pro-GeneX may, at its sole discretion, amend or modify your Test report based on any such changes. This may result in a change in your risk assessment; the reclassification of a variant; a change or update to a previously reported pharmacogenomic genotype or allele; or a reclassification of a reported diplotype. You hereby irrevocably waive any and all claims against Pro-GeneX for any amendment or modification of the Test report in accordance with Pro-GeneX’s standard operating procedures.
12.1 Generally. You agree that any and all legal action, proceeding, or disputes arising in connection with these Terms, your use of the Service and/or Portal, and your acceptance and use of the Results shall be resolved by binding arbitration governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. Any arbitration hearings will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Hall County, Georgia. Our agreement to arbitrate disputes includes, but is not limited to all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, the Service, the Portal, and the Results, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether the claims arise during or after the termination of these Terms. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse Pro-GeneX for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND PRO-GENEX ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, AND INSTEAD ARE ACCEPTING THE USE OF ARBITRATION. You understand and agree that this agreement to arbitrate binds you and anyone else who may have a claim arising out of or related to all products and services provided to you by Pro-GeneX, or persons employed or engaged by Pro-GeneX.
12.2 Exceptions. Notwithstanding subsection 14.1, Pro-GeneX and you agree that nothing herein will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our right to: (i) bring an individual action in small claims court; (ii) pursue enforcement actions through applicable federal, state or local agencies where such actions are available; (iii) seek injunctive relief in a court of law; or (iv) to file suit in a court of law to address intellectual property infringement claims.
12.3 No Class Actions. YOU AND PRO-GENEX AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Pro-GeneX agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
12.4 Modifications. In the event that Pro-GeneX makes any future change to this arbitration provision, you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) days of the change in which case your account with Pro-GeneX shall be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject shall survive.
12.5 Enforceability. If the entirety of this Section 15 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 15 shall be null and void and, in such case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 17 shall govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms.
