From Marketplace :
And that same company, GEDmatch, was recently purchased just last year by a company that has close ties to a policing agency . And this company is not just about finding long-lost relatives, but they save they’re primarily for forensic analysis. Whether it’s Etsy or whether it’s Ancestry.com, we have to really think about what happens to that data.
