Sharing Information with Third Parties
At LabTestingUSA, we take the privacy and security of your personal information seriously. We never sell, rent, or lease your personal information to third parties, nor do we give your information to third parties for their own marketing purposes.
However, in order to provide you with the best possible service, we do share your personal information with trusted third-party lab partners and healthcare providers who medically review your lab test results. Rest assured that we only share your personal information with these parties for the purpose of providing you with the services you requested. We also work with trusted third-party service providers who help us run our website and perform other operational tasks. In each case, we carefully restrict all third-party recipients from using your personal information for any purpose other than providing services to LabTestingUSA, and require them to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
In certain circumstances, we may be required by law to share your personal information with government agencies or law enforcement authorities. For example, if we receive a subpoena or similar legal process or government request, or if we believe in good faith that disclosure is legally required or necessary to protect our rights or the safety of others, we may be required to share your information.
If your test results indicate that you may have a disease or condition that we are required by law to report to state or municipal health departments, we may also need to share your personal information with them. However, we will always notify you of this fact when we notify you about your test results.
Finally, in the event of a merger or other restructuring of our company, we may need to transfer your personal information to a third party. Rest assured that we will always do our best to ensure that your personal information remains secure and protected.

Please be aware that we do not send text messages or physical mail to your address unless required by a state or municipal health department or a medical professional who reviews your results. Additionally, we do not use the chat feature on our website to communicate with our customers or account holders, as it only provides factual, non-personalized information in response to customer queries.
Apart from crucial messages regarding your test results or other transactional information, we may send occasional emails about products and services that may interest you. You can opt-out of such advertising messages at any time.

At our company, safeguarding your Personal Information is our top priority. We employ multiple measures to protect your data from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, or alteration, as well as unauthorized access or disclosure.

Rest assured that whether you place an order online or call one of our counselors, we ensure that your information remains safe and confidential throughout the entire process. However, while these measures are considered effective, we cannot guarantee 100% confidentiality or security since no data transmission over the internet can be completely secure. Thus, we advise you to exercise caution when creating and protecting your account password. Please do not share your credentials with anyone and avoid reusing passwords across different sites. If you have any concerns about your password's integrity or confidentiality, please contact us to reset it and choose a new one.
We only hold onto your Personal Information for as long as it serves the purposes for which it was collected, or as required by law. This may include resolving disputes or enforcing agreements. When determining how long to retain your information, we consider factors such as the type of information we collected, how long it's needed to provide our services, and any legal or contractual obligations to retain the data. Examples of such obligations include mandatory data retention laws, government orders to preserve relevant data for investigations, or retaining data for litigation or disputes.
