Lost Colony DNA Project Test Use Policy Statement
It has come
to the attention of the project administrators that DNA participants that
attended the Lost Colony Symposium this past September (and perhaps others) have
been contacted by an individual and/or the Lost Colony Center for Science and
Research in effect speaking for The Lost Colony DNA Project (TLCDNAP) and saying
(paraphrased) the following:
Lost Colony DNA Project is issuing the following statement regarding membership
in TLCDNAP and the use of test results obtained through the Project using the
testing services provided by FamilyTreeDNA (FTDNA):
solely owned by the projectís registered founder (Roberta Estes) and test
results and project activities (including the project website) are exclusively
copyrighted by FTDNA and/or TLCDNAP as applicable under law and according to the
contract/s between FTDNA and the projectís registered owner.
any other organization and/or the approval or participation of any other
individual or organization is NOT a prerequisite for participation in TLCDNAP.
No fees are
required for membership in TLCDNAP and no fees are required for testing services
other than those charged by FTDNA for its services.
project test results belong to FTDNA and TLCDNAP, as applicable, rights to see
and use test results cannot be assigned or restricted except with the written
consent of FTDNA and TLCDNAP, or both.
own their own results and may transfer into (if tested outside the project) or
out of the project at any time. However, persons who match non-participants may
still be able to see their matches even though project administrators may not.
may share their results with other participants and non-participants as they see
fit, but such sharing is of no affect to and is not binding upon FTDNA and
sending money to any other individual or organization does not entitle anyone to
the services of FTDNA or TLCDNAP or to the test results.
test results are available only to the testees, persons with whom they match in
accordance with FTDNA policy and others with whom testees share access to their
ALL tests within the project and matters related thereto are available only to
FTDNA, the TLCDNAP founder and her designated co-administrators.
received several contributions in support of its activities. However, to date
TLCDNAP has not solicited funds from any source. Additional revenue will be
necessary if TLCDNAP is to achieve its stated goals Ė especially research in
England and elsewhere abroad. TLCDNAP is exploring the possibility of applying
for state and federal tax-exempt status so that future contributions to TLCDNAP
will be tax-exempt.
