    How safe is sending raw data to someone?

    Hello all,

    I am interested in getting G25, but I was wondering how safe it is. Davidski seems to be reputable, but how do we know he doesnít sell the data afterwards or something? I know that that sounds extremely stupid, especially considering that someone who wants to buy DNA data would have an easier time with a bigger company, but Iím still curious. Does raw data from commercial companies even have enough data to identify someone?

    Also, does anyone have an estimate for how many people have had G25 done?

    Sorry for the dumb questions, and thanks in advance.

    if he was doing something shady with other people's raw data it would be known by now.

    its been used to link murderers and rapists to crimes.

    I do not but every amateur model made on this site with G25 data gets pages of people seeing how they line up with it.
