Benefits, Risks, and Limitations as written in the agreement that one clicks before purchasing.

"Benefits
We intend for the Geno 2.0 Next Gen Helix Product to allow you to benefit from learning personal insights through your DNA. By using the product you will:
Discover the migration paths your ancient ancestors followed hundreds—even thousands—of years ago, with an unprecedented view of your ancestral journey.
Learn what percentage of your genome is affiliated with specific regions of the world.
Find out if you have Neanderthal ancestry.
Risks
There are some risks associated with using the Geno 2.0 Next Gen Helix Product. There is a risk that you could learn something about yourself that you did not want to know. This could include finding out that your relatives are not related to you by blood. Since Genetic Information is inherited, these learnings could also impact your family.
We take a number of commercially reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical steps to safeguard information in our possession from loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification. However, no method of transmitting or storing electronic data is ever completely secure, and therefore we cannot warrant or guarantee that such information will never be accessed, used or released in a manner that is inconsistent with the applicable privacy policy.
Limitations
Because women do not carry a Y chromosome, this product will not reveal direct paternal deep ancestry for female participants. Women will learn other information about their paternal side of the family, such as regional and Neanderthal percentages."
