We have compiled some frequently asked questions about situations regarding disclosing information you are privy to as a tester.
- Can I talk about a uTest customer or app?
No; uTest's terms and conditions prohibit talking about any uTest project by name (customer name or application name) on any media outside of uTest's platform, Forums, or Real-Time Chat.
- Can I talk about a customer or app that I am testing on Twitter, Facebook, blogs or message boards?
No; our customers require absolute privacy relating to past, current, and future projects. For this reason, uTest's terms and conditions prohibit talking about any uTest test cycle by name (customer name or application name) on any media outside of uTest's platform, Forums (private sections only,) or Real-Time Chat. This includes personal sites, blogs, forums, message boards, or social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. We don't do this to be harsh or stifle our testers, but rather to protect the all-important privacy of our customers.
- Can I talk about the fact that I am a uTester or that I am working on a uTest project?
Yes; you can state less specific details like the following: that you're testing a "uTest project", a "web application through uTest", or even "an iPhone app on uTest". These examples are fine as long as you leave out specific customer or application names.
