Who are we
We offer websites ("Sites") where visitors and other members of our community ("Visitors") can learn about our offerings, view Site materials, and/or access our platform ("Platform") and related services ("Services") that enable (i) businesses, including current and prospective customers (collectively "Customers") to solicit feedback ("Tests") on any brand, design, content, or current or potential offering, and (ii) individuals participating in such Tests ("Testers"). Userpeek may collect, record, and analyze information about Visitors, including its Customers and Testers, in connection with the Site, Platform, and Services. This information may include personally identifiable information that would allow Userpeek to determine the actual identity or contact information of a specific individual, billing information, account settings, and other data ("Personal Data").
Who is my data controller?
Certain data protection and privacy legislation, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), distinguish between "controllers" and "processors" of personal data. A "controller" determines why and how personal information is processed. A "processor" processes personally identifiable information on behalf of a "controller" in accordance with the controller's instructions.
For Visitors, the Company is the controller insofar as we collect or you supply Personal Information.
Except for information obtained by our Customers through a Test, the Company is the controller of the personal information it collects from Testers.
Customers own the data acquired as part of a test they generate using our Platform or Services, with the exception of the IP addresses used to access the Platform, which we control.
How we gather and use your information
The manner in which we gather Personal Data depends on how and why you use our Sites, Platform, and/or Services.
We acquire Personal Data directly when you provide it to us as a Visitor, Tester, or Customer, as well as indirectly, via automated technologies or from third parties. In line with applicable regulations, we may combine the information you submit with information from third-party sources in order to keep our databases up-to-date and offer you with the most relevant content and experiences. For instance, the size, industry, and other information about the firm for which you work (where you have supplied the company name) may be gathered from sources such as professional networking sites and information service providers. Below is further information on how we gather Personal Data.

If a Visitor submits a trial request on our Site, chats with us for support, requests to watch a webinar, subscribes to our blog or other news, submits a request through our Contact Us form, or requests to download a whitepaper or other content, we may also collect the Visitor's name, title, email, phone number, company name, country, and IP address.
We use this Visitor Data to provide the Visitor with the requested information or materials, such as marketing materials, newsletters, and other content, to perform analytics on how the Site, Platform, and Services are used, to enhance the use of the Site, Platform, or Services, and for other legitimate business purposes.
Contributed or gathered information from our Testers ("Tester Data")
When a Tester opens a Userpeek account, we gather the Tester's name, username, password, zip code, and email address.
Userpeek may additionally request that each Tester supply any extra information required or useful for determining which Tests are best suited for that Tester. Birth year; gender; household income range; country; web expertise; presence of children (including gender and birth years); employment status, industry; company size; job role seniority; gaming genres; web browsers; social networks; languages spoken; race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and other sensitive personal data, which may be voluntarily provided and only collected as permitted by applicable law; devices owned.
Userpeek utilizes Tester Data to deliver and enhance its Services, to pay Testers, to instruct Testers on how to use our Platform and Services, and for other legitimate business objectives.
As a Tester participates in a Test, we record the Tester's activities, which may include voice recordings, screen content, face recordings, screen recordings, browser content, screen interactions including mouse movement and clicking, text input, device configurations, and any background audio or video content ("Recordings"). The Recording may include any personal or health information that shows on a Tester's screen or is referenced in the audio. If one of our Customers asks for sensitive data from a Tester as part of a test, we need the Customer to include a notification specifying the sensitive data to be requested before the test begins. The Tester will then have the option to continue or refuse the exam.
Testers grant intellectual property rights in the Recordings, which may include Personal Data and face Recordings, to Userpeek under the Tester Terms of Service in exchange for the use of the Platform and Services. The Customer or Userpeek, as applicable, owns and controls the recordings.
Userpeek utilizes Recordings to deliver Services to Customers, promote its products and services, guard against fraudulent or unlawful conduct, enhance its Platform and Services, and for other legitimate business objectives.
Information supplied by Our Customers ("Customer Data")

How we share your private information
Subprocessors and Data Processors
Userpeek shares Personal Information with our third-party agents, contractors, and service providers that are engaged to execute services on our behalf. These providers may run or support certain features of the Services, and in some circumstances may collect data directly. The following is a list of functions for which we may use third-party service providers:
Customer support services such as Agile-CRM and Fastspring Billing services and payment gateway providers such as PayPal Hosting and content delivery network services such as AWS.
Unless both you and the Company have agreed otherwise, we do not receive or keep your payment information directly. We utilize a third-party payment processor, such as PayPal, in order to conduct transactions, such as paying Testers. While our administrators are able to view and track actual transactions via the customer portal of the third-party payment processor, we do not have access to or process your credit card information, with the exception of the last 4 digits of your credit card, credit card type, zip code, and expiration date.
You acknowledge and consent that, to the extent that you give your Personal Data as part of Recording, such Personal Data will be shared with the Customer who created the Test.
We may acquire websites, applications, subsidiaries, and other businesses or business divisions as we continue to expand. We may share your information within our business group. Alternatively, we may sell businesses or business units, merge with other corporations, and/or sell assets or shares, in some instances as part of a reorganization or liquidation in bankruptcy. As part of these transactions, we may transfer your Personal Data to a successor entity in the event of a merger, consolidation, or other corporate reorganization in which Userpeek participates, or to a purchaser or acquirer of all or a portion of Userpeek's assets, including in the event of Userpeek's bankruptcy.

How we save your information
We maintain your Personal Information in line with your instructions, including those in the applicable terms of service that you have approved and any rules controlling your use of the Platform and Services. We may also retain your Personal Information if we have a valid business need to do so.

In such a circumstance, the anonymised data cannot be coupled with other data in order to identify you.
If you ask Userpeek to delete specific Personal Data and we are the data controller, we will comply by deleting or anonymizing the data, unless doing so would prevent us from carrying out essential business functions, such as providing and billing for our services, calculating taxes, conducting required audits, and fulfilling contractual obligations to our Customers, Testers, or others.
