Kit contact is not the person tested?

If a researcher buys and sends a kit to a person that the buyer wants tested, and the testee doesn't want the be the contact person for matches, which person's information should be entered in the personal information fields for that kit?

I usually recommend to list the test taker's name on the account. Since this can help at least use the surname as a basis for comparison. If they don't want the name listed they can use a first initial with their surname. I have also seen some list the test taker's name as the first name and c/o of the person managing the account as the surname.
