1. Data security
Macrogen Europe takes the confidentiality of client projects and data seriously. Our client data is housed within Macrogen's data system, which is protected by comprehensive security measures. These include multiple firewalls, appliance-based intrusion prevention systems and layered antivirus filtering systems. In addition, client data is stored on servers that are protected by electronic access control and video surveillance.
2. Data confidentiality
To ensure a high level of data confidentiality, all our client projects are encoded and all samples are marked with barcodes. Our scientists and technicians handle client samples only by these codes, and would not be able to obtain identities of clients or the associations with their samples. After completion of a project, we either return unused samples or destroy the samples on-site.
3. Data ownership
We do not seek any ownership of either the samples or the data generated from our clients’ projects. Our clients have full ownership of all samples sent to us and full ownership of the data generated. It is not required to add Macrogen Europe employees to the list of authors in publications or share their any intellectual property with us as part of a project.
