TERMS FOR PURCHASED SERVICES
General Information about Nebula’s Purchased Services
Nebula’s purchased services are genetic testing services involving the purchase of a DNA collection kit to allow the user to collect a DNA sample , analysis of the sample by Nebula or its affiliates as described in Nebula’s genetic testing services FAQs, continued offering of similar or associated tests, and state-of-the-art genetic reports that include ancestry information and non-diagnostic or treatment-related health information (“Purchased Services”).
By purchasing the Purchased Services, you are indicating your acceptance to be bound by these Terms. These Terms form a legal contract for the purchase of the Purchased Services and can only be amended with Nebula’s written consent. Any purchases that you make are subject to these Terms.
A copy of these Terms will be provided to you when you receive confirmation of acceptance of your order as described below. You are advised to print a copy of these Terms for reference.
As a user of Nebula’s Purchased Services, you understand and agree to the submission of a sample for DNA extraction, DNA sequencing, and storage of your sample.
As part of the Purchased Services, Nebula offers three Whole Genome Sequencing products. In order to obtain your Genome Sequencing data, you must choose one of the three below products (“Nebula Product”) and one of the Subscriptions (discussed in the following section). Purchasing the Nebula Product allows us to process your DNA sample and extract the DNA. However, you must also select one of the three Subscriptions to then process that extracted DNA data and obtain your genetic data. Except as discussed in these Terms, all Nebula Product purchases are final, but all Subscriptions can be cancelled at any time.
|Product||Amount of DNA Decoded||DNA sequencing depth||Ancestry reports||Accuracy of DNA sequencing and reports|
|Basic||Decodes the most important parts of your DNA||
Generates over 2 gigabytes of DNA data
|Basic ancestry reports based on autosomal DNA||Medium|
|Deep||Decodes 100% of your DNA||
Generates over 100 gigabytes of DNA data
|Deep ancestry reports based on Y chromosomal and mitochondrial DNA||High|
|Ultra Deep||Decodes 100% of your DNA with ultra-high accuracy||
Generates over 300 gigabytes of DNA data
|Deep ancestry reports based on Y chromosomal and mitochondrial DNA||Ultra-high|
SUBSCRIPTIONS FEES AND REFUNDS
We give our customers a choice of three different Products, which are described above. We then charge a Subscription fee to enable our users to benefit from the almost daily new scientific studies that advance our understanding of human genetics. Your purchase of a Product will allow us to collect, process, and extract your DNA and genetic data, and the Subscription allows you to continue to have that data used and re-processed on continuing basis to show you new results based on the our evolving understanding of the human genome. We do not provide a minimum guarantee for the number of new reports you will be provided, as the frequency of these will depend on the speed in which the science in this field develops.
A Subscription is required to complete your order and receive your first genetic report, but it can be cancelled at any time. All three subscriptions offer the benefits that come with the Product you chose to purchase. The only difference in the Subscriptions is frequency with which the subscription is billed (monthly, annually or one-off).
All of our prices include all sales and other value added taxes but do not include delivery and other handling charges, which will be displayed to you prior to your purchase and added to the total amount due. Import taxes (if applicable) charged by national authorities on your DNA collection kit are your responsibility.
|Subscription Type||Price||Duration||First billing date||Auto-Billing Date||Cancellation & Refund (unless otherwise stated in these Terms)|
|Quarterly||$19.99/mo.||Quarterly||After you register your sample and when your report is ready||30 days after date of purchase||Cancel anytime; non-refundable|
|Annual||$9.99/mo. (billed annually)||Annual||After you register your sample and when your report is ready||1 year after date of purchase||Cancel anytime; pro-rated refund for the unused months|
|Lifetime||$200 (billed at the time of purchase)||Lifetime||At the time you order your Product||N/A||Cancel anytime; pro-rated refund if cancelled within the first 10 months only|
Please see our Refund and Cancellation Policy for more information on your right to a refund.
General Information Regarding Nebula’s Genetic Testing Services
Nebula’s Services are based on current state-of-the-art genetic research and DNA sequencing technology. As the research progresses and available technology evolves, Nebula will continue to innovate to provide the best possible experience and information to its users. Accordingly, you acknowledge and agree that Nebula may update its technology, analysis, and reporting at its sole discretion, without prior notice to you. You also acknowledge that you may need to update third-party software from time to time in order to continue using the Services and Purchased Services, including accessing reports.
Details about Nebula’s processing of samples
Nebula or one of its third-party partners will store your sample and/or the extracted DNA after your sample has been processed. Having your sample stored allows your sample to be analyzed again when new and updated tests become available. Nebula will never process your sample without your explicit, specific consent. If you would like your sample permanently destroyed, you may contact us at email@example.com and request your sample to be destroyed. Destroying your sample is irreversible and will limit your access to tests offered in the future.
Nebula and its affiliates may not be able to process your sample if your sample does not contain a sufficient amount of DNA or is contaminated. If this occurs, Nebula will contact you to notify you and ask you to provide a new sample. In the rare case that we are also unable to process your second sample, we will contact you and offer a refund (less shipping and handling), provided that you do not submit any other sample to us after receiving a refund.
Your contract with us for Purchased Services
If you are placing an order through www.nebula.org, the technical steps required to create a contract between you and Nebula are as follows:
- You place an order for Purchased Services on www.nebula.org. You will be guided through the process of placing an order by the instructions on www.nebula.org.
- Please take the time to read and check the details entered at each stage of the order process.
- After you place an order, you will receive an email from Nebula acknowledging that your order has been received. Nebula’s acceptance of your order will take place when you receive an email that confirms that your Product has been dispatched.
- The contract between you and Nebula will only be formed when you receive the confirmation of dispatch of the Product. The contract with us for the Purchased Services will continue in effect until you exercise your right to cancel or change your mind (if applicable in your territory). Your obligations under the contract will cease when the contract ends.
If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the Purchased Services.
If you wish to make changes to the Purchased Services, you have ordered please contact us using the contact information below. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the Purchased Services, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract.
The purchase of Purchased Services is subject to availability. Nebula will inform you as soon as possible if the Purchased Service you have ordered is not available and Nebula will not process your order. If you have already paid for Purchased Services, you will be refunded in full if your order cannot be fulfilled. Nebula reserves the right to impose ordering restrictions on the number of Purchased Services that can be ordered and the interval at which these Purchased Services can be ordered.
Nebula is required by law to ensure that Purchased Services ordered from Nebula comply with the Terms of Nebula’s contract with you. In particular, any Product that Nebula supplies to you must correspond with any relevant description included on the Nebula website, must be of satisfactory quality and must be fit for their intended purpose as described by Nebula.
Nothing in these Terms will affect your legal rights in your country of residence. If there is a conflict between these Terms and your legal rights in your country of residence, your legal rights will prevail.
Please see our Refund and Cancellation Policy for information about delivery times.
You are responsible for the Products when they are delivered to you.
Nebula will deliver directly to the address specified in your order.
Nebula is not engaged in the practice of medicine, and information learned through Nebula’s Services and Purchased Services is not intended and should not be used for diagnostic or medical use.
Our Services and our Purchased Services are not intended to be interpreted by users for the purposes of making any decisions regarding parentage or diagnosis or treatment. The information you learn through our Services and Purchased Services does not constitute medical advice, and you should not change your health behaviors solely on the basis of the provided genetic information. The Services and Purchased Services are not intended to be used by the customer for any diagnostic purpose and are not a substitute for professional medical advice. You should always seek the advice of your physician or other health care provider with any questions you may have regarding diagnosis, cure, treatment, mitigation, or prevention of any disease or other medical condition or impairment or the status of your health.
BY USING NEBULA’S GENETIC TESTING SERVICES, YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT USE ANY INFORMATION PROVIDED BY NEBULA’S SERVICE OR PURCHASED SERVICES FOR DIAGNOSTIC OR HEALTH RELATED DECISION MAKING BEFORE SEEKING PROFESSIONAL ADVICE FROM A PHYSICIAN, GENETIC COUNSELOR, OR SIMILARLY QUALIFIED HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL REGARDING ANY PARENTAGE OR HEALTHCARE DECISIONS BASED ON GENETIC TESTING RESULTS PROVIDED BY NEBULA.
Rather, Nebula’s Services and Purchased Services are for research, information, and educational use only. In short, many of the health-related information learned from the provided genetic testing results have not been clinically validated and the technology Nebula uses, although used in research, is not broadly used in healthcare settings. Clinical validity refers to how well a specific genetic variant is related to the presence, absence, or risk of a specific disease or condition.
Nebula encourages you to talk to a genetic counselor or a healthcare professional prior to submitting a sample collection kit or to aid you in understanding your results.
Nebula disclaims to the maximum extent permitted by law all liability for any loss or damage suffered by you or any person, be it directly or indirectly as a result of or in connection with your use of the Services and Purchased Services or any treatment or healthcare decisions that you make based on genetic testing results provided by Nebula. However, Nebula does not exclude or limit its liability for death or personal injury resulting from its negligence or to the extent it cannot limit its liability under applicable law.
Nebula accepts most major credit cards for payment. The accepted methods of payment are displayed on the Nebula website. Paypal can also be used as a payment method for certain Purchased Services.
Payment for your Product and all applicable delivery and handling charges is in advance of receiving your Product. You will be charged for the Product when your order of the Product is dispatched to you by Nebula. The Product will be owned by you when your payment has been processed in full.
Payment for your Subscription will depend on the type of Subscription you have chosen (see Subscription table above).
You confirm that you own the credit card that is being used to make your purchase.
All credit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by Nebula. If Nebula believes that the card used to pay for your order is being used fraudulently, this will be reported to the relevant authorities and all orders cancelled. Two-factor authorisation may be required to process some payments.
If your card issuer refuses to authorise payment for your order, Nebula will be unable to dispatch the Product to you and will not be responsible for any delay or non-delivery. Nebula will not be informed of the reason for refusal and therefore, is unable to inform you of the reason that your card issuer has refused payment.
Nebula is not responsible for any card or bank charges issued by your card issuer as a result of processing payment for your order, unless local requires us to be responsible for such payments.
Your account will record that payment has been taken by Nebula Genomics, Inc.
Right to change your mind (UK and EU customers only)
Change your mind prior to dispatch
If you change your mind about your purchase and decide to cancel the contract prior to the Purchase being dispatched, you should notify Nebula immediately and reject any orders dispatched..
Change your mind after dispatch
If you decide that you do not wish to keep the Product that you ordered and only the delivery packaging of the Product has been opened, you are entitled to change your mind without giving any reason within fourteen (14) days from which you acquired, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquired, physical possession of the Products. [Unopened Product must have their tamper seals intact. If the Product is opened or the tamper seal is not intact, you lose your right to change your mind].
If you change your mind in these circumstances, you must send the Product back to Nebula at your own cost within fourteen (14) days of notifying Nebula that you have changed your mind. Nebula will reimburse you all payments received from you for the Product once the Product has been returned. We will also reimburse the cost of standard delivery of the Product to you (if any) but will not be responsible for any delivery costs above the standard delivery cost. If you change your mind about the Product in these circumstances, we will refund any Subscription fees you have already paid, or, if you have not yet paid for a Subscription, we will not take any payments from you.
