User Representations and Warranties
By using this Website, you represent and warrant to SelfCollect that you have read these Terms and that you comprehend, understand, will comply with, consent to, and agree with the following statements, requirements and conditions in order to use this Website and all services available through the Website from SelfCollect:
- It is your sole responsibility, if necessary, to obtain advice, diagnosis, and/or treatment from a qualified healthcare provider based on the results of this testing and other related circumstances or possible pre-existing conditions.
- If you receive a positive result (that is, not negative, and not indeterminate), it is your sole responsibility to seek a qualified health care provider immediately for advice and treatment, if necessary. You and no other persons associated with you have any expectations of receiving any medical care, treatment, or follow up from SelfCollect.
- When providing personal requested information to this website under any circumstance, you are being truthful, accurate and that any and all mail-in kits that you purchase and their contents will only be used by you for your own personal use.
- SelfCollect does not test for HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) at this time.
- If you decide to check-out anonymously, your name will not and cannot appear on the results page and SelfCollect will not be able to place your name on the results page even upon your subsequent request. You also understand that a medical professional may not accept the results without a name appearing on the report.
- SelfCollect reserves the right to refuse provision of kits and testing service, to eliminate or terminate accounts, modify content, or cancel requests in its sole discretion.
- This Website represents a previsionary source for individuals who request testing but neither the Website nor its owners provide medical therapy. You understand that SelfCollect is not a medical practice and does not provide interpretive medical advice, clinical diagnoses, or recommend treatment. It is your responsibility to seek interpretive medical advice, clinical diagnoses, or recommended treatment from qualified healthcare providers who understand your specific circumstances.
- You understand and clearly comprehend that SelfCollect’s association with you will not extend beyond the scope of the testing in consideration and is limited to the electronic provision of testing results.
- You understand that every effort will be made to have your testing results returned to you in a timely manner after at home collected specimens are received for processing. You understand that at times the results may be delayed or repeated and/or a repeat sample may be necessary if the sample is indeterminate.
- Notification of availability of your results will take place in a reasonably timely manner assuming no unexpected delays in receiving or processing the samples. You understand that if you have not been notified about your results, you cannot assume that the test results were negative, indeterminate or positive. It is your responsibility to email customer support at info@SelfCollect.com for instructions about receiving your results should there be any question.
- You understand that you will be tested only for the tests that you select and from the body sites that you select and purchase, and that you will not be tested for every possible STD/STI or body site. You also understand that testing one body site does not imply or verify that other body sites are comparably positive, negative or indeterminate for the same test analyte.
- Because there is a certain latent period after exposure to STD/STIS but before the test results will be positive or before symptoms arise, you understand the need for repeat or multiple testing at periodic intervals ranging from monthly to annually when latent infections may be present but are asymptomatic. At times a person could be infected with an STD/STI and the test be negative (false negative) or the person could be free of the condition (STD/STI) and the test be positive (false positive). These events are rare but well established in laboratory testing. The only remedy is repeat testing either with the same or another test method.
- Some states have regulations that require laboratories to report certain STDs and/or other infectious diseases along with whatever demographic information is available. You understand that the Website will protect your privacy and the security of all of your personal health information as defined by HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability And Accountability Act of 1996) and the American Recovery And Reinvestment Act of 2009 and comparable laws in other jurisdictions.
- By accepting the test results ordered from SelfCollect.com, you voluntarily assume any risks associated with the collection and screening process. In addition you hereby release, indemnify and hold harmless the laboratory performing the testing and any other persons or entities associated with this collection and screening process from any and all claims, rights and causes of action arising from any real or perceived adverse effects or consequences in any way connected with the collection, testing, and reporting of test results or services provided.
- The test results, provided by SelfCollect.com, have been generated using double stranded DNA Nucleic Acid Amplification Techniques (NAAT) and performance characterists of this test were determined by West Coast Pathology Laboratories. Some testing methodologies used may not be cleared by the US Food and Drug Adminstration (FDA). The FDA does not require certain tests to go through premarket FDA review. This test is used for clinical purposes. It should not be regarded as investigational or for research. This laboratory is certified under Clinical Laboratory Improvements Amendments (CLIA) as qualified to perform high complexity clinical laboratory testing.
- You understand that it may be necessary for you to seek care from a qualified health care provider and/or to seek further information or counseling of any form if needed. You understand that there is extensive and ample information available for me to review about all STDS/STIS at various web sites including the following:
- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website at http://www.cdc.gov
- the American Social Health Association at http://www.ashstd.org
- The testing that you have personally and voluntarily chosen may reveal a treatable bacterial infection requiring treatment by a qualified health care provider. In certain states, and under certain circumstances, treatment such as Expedited Partner Therapy (as defined by the CDC) may be extended or offered by a qualified health care provider to your partner/partners.
- You understand that the results of this testing and all associated collection materials including written materials are for informational purposes and not a substitute for medical care or examination, treatment, or follow-up.
- We do not email your test results to you. Your test results will be available to you on line only through the Website and it is your responsibility to either download, or print these results should you desire to retain a physical or electronic copy.

You acknowledge and agree that there is a 50% cancellation fee if you cancel after the kit has been shipped. If you do cancel prior to shipping, you will receive a 100% refund. Once testing has been complete, there are no refunds available.
