Consent & Release Form
Fridig Surname DNA Project
Consent & Liability Release
In the handling of your personal DNA profile results, it is the intent of the Fridig Surname DNA Project Coordinator to ensure to the best of his ability the strict confidentiality of the specific identity of the participant in conjunction with the participant's personal Y-Chromosome DNA results. However, the individual DNA data for each participant will be posted on the Friday International web site, and possibly other future literary expressions (books, etc.) in the manner prescribed below.
Unfortunately we live in a time when an individual, who chooses in good faith to expend the significant personal resources necessary to coordinate such a project, also potentially exposes himself to unwarranted liability. Thus, based upon advise and counsel, I have included the following waiver of liability form that will be required to be executed by all Fridig Surname DNA Project participants before the Project Coordinator will integrate your DNA Profile data into the Fridig Surname Haplotype Database and post it at the public Friday International web site. The form is shown below for your review and approval.
