California lawmaker introduces genetic privacy bill

A proposed California law would prohibit DNA testing companies like Ancestry and 23andMe from sharing customer DNA information with outside parties without their consent.

The California Consumer Privacy Act already protects consumer DNA information by requiring companies to disclose to the consumer what information is being collected and the purpose for which it will be used, as well as the right to opt out of the sale of that information to a third party.
