I don't see how it can be legal to access the data of non-US people who have not given their consent to law enforcement. If this is how US authorities treat non-Americans, expect to see a dramatic decrease in the number of non-US people in US databases (which is all of them except Living DNA, IIRC).

Myheritage is Israeli.

Regardless, I have NOT given consent for law enforcement to use my data. If they did, I would likely have grounds to sue them.

This is a legal clusterscrew waiting to happen.

MyHeritage is Israeli, but I believe they use FTDNA's lab service, so there may also be an American database with customer info.
