Who we are

We provide websites (“Sites“) where visitors and other members of our community (“Visitors“) may 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 taking part in such Tests (“Contributors“) to perform and record Tests. In connection with the Site, Platform, and Services, UserTesting may collect, record, and analyze information about Visitors, including its Customers and Contributors, which may include individually identifiable information that would allow UserTesting to determine the actual identity of 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 laws, such as the GDPR, differentiate between “controllers” and “processors” of personal information. A “controller” decides why and how to process personal information. A “processor” processes personal information on behalf of a controller based on the controller’s instructions.

For Visitors, the Company is the controller, to the extent that we collect or you provide your Personal Data.

For Contributors, the Company is the controller of the personal information collected from you by the Company, except for the information collected by our Customers through a Test.

For Customers, you are the controller of the data collected as part of a test you create using our Platform or Services, except for the IP addresses used to access  the Platform, which we control.
