Who we are
At Paternity For Life, we recognise that DNA testing can be a highly emotional process for everyone involved and the results from a DNA test can be life changing. Therefore, we offer a personalised service, with laboratory scientists handling your case and communicating with you throughout the entire process. From the initial contact, to arranging sample collection and through to explaining your results, know that you are in the safe hands of our highly experienced staff who know the ins and outs of DNA testing.
Because of how significant the outcomes of DNA testing can be, we recognise that it is important you select a reliable provider to complete your testing. At Paternity For Life, our management have years of experience in DNA testing and work directly in this field. Their experience has allowed us to establish strong relationships with embassies and consulates worldwide, meaning we can facilitate DNA testing no matter where you may be located.

How we protect your data
- SSL to encrypt data : Implementing an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate is one smart move to secure the admin panel. SSL ensures secure data transfer between user browsers and the server, making it difficult for hackers to breach the connection or spoof your info.
- Using strong password for database : A strong password for the main database user is a must since this password is the one WordPress uses to access the database.
- Protect the wp-config.php file : The wp-config.php file holds crucial information about your WordPress installation, and it’s the most important file in your site’s root directory. Protecting it means securing the core of your WordPress blog.
What data breach procedures we have in place
Upon becoming aware of a security incident, “Paternity for life” shall notify its customers, users and newsletter subscribers without undue delay and shall provide timely information relating to the security incident as it becomes known or as is reasonably requested by customers, users and newsletter subscribers.
