“Educational and Informational Purposes. The Soccer DNA Test is primarily for educational and informational purposes. The general consensus within the scientific community is that genetic tests have not been found with certainty to assist in talent identification; Soccer Genomics is aligned with this position given that soccer is a multifactorial sport and genetics alone cannot determine the future talent of a soccer player. It is also the general consensus within the scientific community that genetic tests have not been found with certainty to assist in isolating specific training for an individual in order to maximize his/her performance. Soccer genomics acknowledges no one can prove performance maximization solely with the use of scientific data. Soccer Genomics and its affiliates do not claim that DNA tests are capable of predicting sports performance or identifying talent; however, results illustrate an athlete’s genetic blueprint which may serve as a valuable reference to be utilized at the discretion of the player and/or coaches. “

Once you obtain your results from your DNA test, the knowledge is irrevocable. You should not assume that any information we may be able to provide to you will be welcome or positive. We encourage you to talk to a genetic counselor or a health professional, prior to collecting your sample for testing to learn more so you can make an informed decision about whether testing is right for you. A genetic counselor also can help you understand your results and options.

SG Products are for research, informational, and educational use only. We do not provide medical advice and cannot guarantee a particular outcome as a result of you taking any specific course of recommended action or advice outlined by your results. Although we take a strong evidence-based approach, the information we provide is based on a small subset of genetic markers and as a result is only one part of a much larger picture. There may be additional genes, unknown genetic interactions, environmental factors, or lifestyle choices that are more important predictors. You should not change your health behaviors solely on the basis of information from SG. Make sure to discuss your results with a physician or other health care provider before you act upon such results. Please be advised that you are solely responsible for the way information in your results is interpreted and acted upon and any recommendations you follow you do so at your own risk.

Results you share with others could be used against your interests. You should be careful about sharing your genetic information with others. Currently, very few businesses or insurance companies request genetic information, but this could change in the future. While the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act was signed into law in the United States in 2008, its protection against discrimination by employers and health insurance companies for employment and coverage issues has not been clearly established. In addition, GINA does not cover life or disability insurance providers. Some, but not all, states and other jurisdictions have laws that protect individuals with regard to their genetic information. You may want to consult a lawyer to understand the extent of legal protection of your genetic information before you share it with anybody.

Furthermore, genetic information that you choose to share with your physician or other health care provider may become part of your medical record and through that route be accessible to other health care providers and/or insurance companies in the future. If you are asked by an insurance company whether you have learned genetic information about health conditions and you do not disclose this to them, this may be considered to be fraud. You take responsibility for all possible consequences resulting from your sharing with others access to your genetic information and your self-reported data.
