‘Genetic Information’ means information about the structure of proteins, encoded as a base sequence of nucleotides according to the genetic code. We use this to refer both to your personal genetic information and the collected genetic information of your gut microbiota i.e. all living organisms (for example, bacteria, viruses, bacteriophages, fungi, parasites, etc.) that inhabit your gut and that are represented in your Sample.

Your sample will be tested within test laboratories that are accredited to International Standards (CAP, CLIA, and DIN EN ISO 15189:2014) by the German notified body, DakkS. A Notified Body is a body appointed by a national or international government or other authority to assess conformity with regulatory or other standards.
Depending upon what Samples you provide and the Service you subscribe to, using your Samples, Unseen Bio may do any of the following types of tests and analysis, at our certified laboratory or using a third-party service, if needed, as part of the Service:
Unseen Bio does not perform the following types of tests and analysis as part of its Services
Unseen Bio will provide you with Test Results, and personalized recommendations on diet, lifestyle and healthcare derived from the application of Unseen Bio's proprietary technology and methodologies in the analysis of your Sample Data, Test Data, and other information such as Self-Reported Information you provided. You may choose to follow these recommendations as little or as much as you wish, or you may choose not to follow these recommendations at all.
Biological Samples are processed by Unseen Bio in an irreversible manner and they cannot be returned to you once submitted for testing and analyzed by Unseen Bio. Data from your Samples will be saved on Unseen Bio secure servers with industry standard privacy and security safeguards. Unseen Bio plans to retain your Samples for at least three (3) months, and data for at least eleven (11) years, but may, in its sole discretion, retain such Samples and data for a longer period of time. Unseen Bio may also use Test Results for improving its data analysis methods and an artificial intelligence engine.
Situations may arise in which the laboratory is not able to process your sample, or the analysis of said sample may result in errors. It may not be possible to analyse your microbiome's genetic information due to insufficient volume of stool, or in the event that the processing of your genetic material fails to pass our quality control. Should your sample fail the initial processing for any of these reasons, Unseen Bio will process your sample a second time for no additional fee. In the case that the second processing of your genetic material fails, you will receive another kit for sample collection from Unseen Bio at no additional fee. If the processing fails again upon reception of the second sample, you (or the person who is the recipient of the kit) will not receive another sample collection kit from Unseen Bio. A full refund of the total amount paid to Unseen Bio will be offered upon request from you (or the person who is the recipient of the kit)
In the event that a refund has already been provided for the purchase of a kit, you are not permitted to submit a sample in the future. No refund will be provided to users that breach these terms and conditions by submitting a future sample for processing if the processing of this future sample is unsuccessful.
Due to the nature of genetic sequencing technology used, it is not possible to interpret the microbiome's genetic information provided without errors, although these will comprise a small percentage of the results. As such errors cannot be predicted in advance, Unseen Bio does not offer a refund or other compensation with respect to them.
The above clauses delineate the conditions of Unseen Bio’s sole responsibility for situations when the processing of your Genetic Information is not possible.
Research into the influence of the microbiome on health and disease risk is ongoing. Unseen Bio’s technology is designed to analyse hundreds of thousands of data points in your microbiome's genetic information. However, only a small fraction of these are known to influence health conditions and physical traits. Research into the microbial and genetic basis of health is progressing rapidly and Unseen Bio is dedicated to supporting the investigation into these interactions.
Only a portion of ethnic groups, ethnic diets and specific dietary trends around the world have been sufficiently studied from a microbial and genetic perspective. For this reason, Unseen Bio can only provide information arising from published studies on the topic. Therefore, it is possible that some interpretations may not be applicable to a user who is genetically descended from genetic ethnic groups, or is consuming an ethnic or specific diet that has not been sufficiently studied as of the present time.
Advances in scientific research may influence the interpretation of your microbiome's genetic information, including the possibility that previous published studies upon which the interpretation is based are discovered to be incomplete or inaccurate.
Your microbiome's genetic information is a matter of personal privacy. Should you choose to share it with others, it may have consequences that go against your interests. For this reason, it is important to think before sharing your microbiome's genetic information. Even though it is not common for businesses or insurance companies to ask for your genetic data, this may happen in the future.
Before sharing your microbiome's genetic information, consult a legal specialist regarding the legal protection of this information in your country.
Your microbiome's genetic information shared with a GP may be included in your medical record, which may indirectly make it available to other healthcare providers or insurance companies in the future.
Should you choose to make your microbiome's genetic information available to relatives, friends or employers, you accept sole responsibility in the case that this information is used against your interests. Genetic Information will likely gain greater value as technology and the body of research on genetics grow.
The Services provided by Unseen Bio are destined for informational, research and educational purposes only. The results of any Unseen Bio Test do not constitute a diagnosis, nor medical advice. Please consult your general practicioner or a professional diet counsellor with any questions you may have about the outcomes and recommendations of our Services
Unseen Bio is not responsible for action, resources, diagnosis, treatment, mitigation or other avenues associated with your microbiome's genetic information. You are solely responsible for situations arising from the consultation of or use of diet plans, pre- and pro-biotics, supplements, drugs, biologics, medical devices, procedures, medical opinions and other information following the reception of your microbiome's genetic information through the use of Unseen Bio Tests, online platform and other Services.
Should the use of Unseen Bio Services, including tests, Self-Reported Information and referring scientific literature, indicate areas of concern for your health; it is for informational purposes only. Consult a general practicioner or a professional diet counselor regarding your concerns.

If you have purchased the testing kit from one of our resellers, we will inform you by email and we will refund you the price you have paid. To find out more about refunds, please see Section 15.
We only sell to certain countries. Our Website and Apps are solely for the promotion and sale of our Services in the European Union (Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden) including Monaco, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, we do not accept orders from or deliver to addresses outside these countries.
How to purchase our Services. You can purchase our testing kits on our Website by filling in and submitting the online order form. You do not need to register for an account with us for purchasing, but you will need to do that for receiving the Service.
How we will accept your order. Unless you have ordered our testing kit from one of our resellers, all orders are subject to acceptance by Unseen Bio and your acceptance of these terms and conditions. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract of delivery will come into existence between you and us. This contract of delivery ends when we deliver the product(s) to the address you supply.
If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the Service.
Your order number. Where we supply the testing kit(s), we will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
Where we supply the testing kit(s), we will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is within our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part, we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Website.
This section 12 only applies in the case where you intend to purchase or have purchased a testing kit directly from Unseen Bio’s Website.
Where to find the price for the Testing Services. The price of the Testing Services (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Testing Services advised to you is correct. However please see clause 12.4 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Testing Services you order. All amounts due under these terms and conditions shall be payable in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as required by law).
We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the Testing Services, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the Testing Services in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
What happens if we get the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the Services’ correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Services’ correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any Services provided to you.
What payment options do we support We receive payment with Dankort, Visa, MasterCard and Mobilepay. Payment fees are not charged on private credit card payments. The amount is deducted when the order is shipped If you have ordered multiple items and one of the items is in backorder, we will deduct payment for this item when the item is shipped.
Clauses 13.3, 13.4 and 13.5 only apply in the case where Unseen Bio directly handles the delivery of your order.
Delivery costs. The costs of delivering the testing kit to you, and those of you sending your samples to us for analysis, are included in the price of the Testing Services which will be as displayed to you on our Website or if ordered through another reseller, on their respective website. If you decide to return your kit (see section 18) then you are entitled to a refund of the price of the kit less the charges incurred through delivery and return of the product.
If you are not at home when the testing kit is delivered. If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the testing kit cannot be posted through your letterbox, you will receive a notification informing you of how to re-arrange delivery or collect the testing kit from a local depot.
If you do not re-arrange delivery. If, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect your order from a delivery depot, we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract for delivery (see clause 19.2).
When you become responsible for the testing kit. Where we supply the testing kit, it will be your responsibility from the time we deliver it to the address you gave us until we receive it back from you. This is also the moment, when our contract for delivery ends.
Expected time of delivery. Unless otherwise indicated, we deliver in Denmark within at least 1-3 working days of your purchase, but possibly up to a week after your purchase. Unless otherwise indicated, in EU countries that are not Denmark, we deliver within 5-8 working days, but possibly up to two weeks after your purchase.
What happens when you post your sample back to us. As soon as we receive your sample a contract of service for Testing Services between you and Unseen Bio will come into existence at this point. To find out more about how to go about ending the contract of service, please see section 15.
When we will start providing the Testing Services. We will inform you immediately upon receiving your sample that we will begin to provide the Testing Services to you. This will be visible in the test overview section in your user account on our website.

We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the Testing Services is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we give notice of said delays, we are not liable for such events. Should substantial delays arise (in excess of six weeks after receipt of the sample), you may contact us to cancel the contract and receive a refund for any Testing Services you have paid for but not received.

Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
We are not responsible to you for loss and damage caused by your breaking this contract. We are not responsible for loss and damage caused by:
We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so.

If a court finds part of this contract illegal or unenforceable, the rest will continue in force. Each clause of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining clauses will remain in full force and effect.
Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the Services, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
