McDuffie DNA Surname Project Privacy Statement
As Administrator of the McDuffie project we give priority to protecting your privacy and to the confidentiality of your personal data. In particular, we will not publish your name, e-mail address or other contact details, or share this information with any other project member of other person or organization without your specific written approval.
The only personal data we hold is that relevant to meeting the published goals of our Project, and which has been made available to us by DNA testing companies, in the same format as they make it available to you, or which you have given us direct by e-mail or post.
We hold this data indefinitely or until you request its deletion, and publish anonymized data on our Project website at (https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/mcduff/about) where you may see its current status.
We will be pleased to correct any errors in your personal data that you bring to our attention.
At your request at any time we will promptly remove your data from our project files. However, we cannot retrieve any data that has been previously posted in the public domain.
In our administration of this project we endeavor to comply with the most recent guidance issued by ISOGG (https://isogg.org/wiki/ISOGG_Project_Administrator_Guidelines) and by FTDNA (https://www.familytreedna.com/learn/project-administration/gap-guidelines-ftdna-projects/), and with the Genetic Genealogy Standards (http://www.geneticgenealogystandards.com).
We endeavor to respond promptly to any queries or complaints you may make about our handling of your personal data for this Project. However, you should be aware that some of your concerns may be better forwarded direct to the relevant DNA testing company.
Administrator of the McDuffie surname project
