Hi Everyone,

We wanted to make you aware of some changes we have made to the way we store your log in information. Your privacy and security is of the utmost importance to us which is why we have made some enhancements to the way we store your details, ensuring that they are saved securely and safely. Recent changes include the encryption of your password which means that we have encoded your information in such a way that, should hackers ever try to access our database, they would be unable to read it.

These changes should not effect you in any way, unless you have multiple accounts that you log in to using the same email address. We have taken the decision to no longer allow multiple accounts using the same email address in order to make sure that your details are available to you and only you. If you have multiple accounts that you would like to continue using, you are able to do so, but you will have to choose which account you want to use each time you log in. If you would like to close down one of your accounts, please contact and they will be able to do this for you.

These changes will take effect on Tuesday next week.

The Genes Team
