WHY AM I RECEIVING A BREACH NOTICE FROM DNA DIAGNOSTICS WHEN I NEVER RECEIVED TREATMENT FROM THEM OR HAD ANY RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM?
It’s likely that you did not have a direct relationship with DNA Diagnostics Center even though DNA Diagnostics Center possessed your personal, sensitive information. The reason for this is because DNA Diagnostics Center acquired a genetic testing organization system in 2012 that previously held your information. DNA Diagnostics Center then came into possession of your information through its acquisition of the genetic testing company that previously controlled your personal, sensitive information. This does not alleviate DNA Diagnostics Center from its obligation to reasonably safeguard your private information, including your Social Security Number.
