We prefer to avoid legal cases that don't involve the company
Embark stands behind the science and accuracy of our product. However, Embark does not actively support dog breed legislation and would prefer to avoid involvement in legal cases. If compelled, Embark can provide an expert witness to speak to our sample submission process, DNA analysis, and breed determination process. Use of DNA results for legal purposes varies by jurisdiction—please consult your lawyer for legal advice.
Some local communities in the U.S. have put restrictions on ownership of various breeds (like Pit Bulls), and we encourage owners to be fully aware of local laws, which vary across the country. Results on your public profile can always be made private in the settings page.
Does Embark provide data to regulatory/animal control officials?
Not without your prior expressed written consent.
