Privacy Violating COVID Tests
A good lesson in reading the fine print:
Cignpost Diagnostics, which trades as ExpressTest and offers £35 tests for holidaymakers, said it holds the right to analyse samples from seals to “learn more about human health”—and sell information on to third parties.
Individuals are required to give informed consent for their sensitive medical data to be used but customers’ consent for their DNA to be sold now as buried in Cignpost’s online documents.
Of course, no one ever reads the fine print.
