No. Only the person tested has the right to contribute their results to science. Even if you paid for the test of a friend or relative, they need to be the one to consent to the donation. This is in keeping with the policies governing the NCBI GenBank database.

Although we at Family Tree DNA appreciate your enthusiasm, we ask that you practice ethical testing and kit conservatorship. You may, of course, help explain the donation process to the person who tested.
