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, UX Mining may collect, record, and analyze information about Visitors, including its Customers and Contributors, which may include individually identifiable information that would allow UX Mining 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 we collect from you for us to provide you with access to our Platform or Services, except for the IP address you use for access to the Platform, which we control.
How we collect and use your data
How we collect Personal Data depends on how and why you use our Sites, our Platform, and/or our Services.
We collect Personal Data directly when you submit it to us, as a Visitor, Contributor, or Customer, as well as indirectly, such as through the use of automated technologies or from third parties. To help keep our databases current and to provide you the most relevant content and experiences, we may combine information provided by you with information from third-party sources, in accordance with applicable laws. For example, the size, industry, and other information about the company you work for (where you have provided company name) may be obtained from sources including professional networking sites and information service providers. We provide more information about how we collect Personal Data below.
UX Mining uses your Personal Data for certain legitimate business purposes, including the following:
- to provide you access to and use of the Platform and Services, including registering as a Customer or a Contributor,
- to deliver Services to our Customers, including Recordings created by Contributors,
- to improve and enhance your experience with the Platform and Services, including the content and general administration of the Platform and Services,
- to retain records as may be required for tax, legal, and financial purposes,
- to understand how you access, use and interact with the Services in order to provide technical functionality, develop new products and services, and analyze your use of the Services,
- to communicate with you,
- to provide you with customer support in connection with your use of the Services,
- to detect fraud, illegal activities, or security breaches,
- to receive and make payments, and
- to provide information to regulatory bodies when legally required.
In the sections below, we are more specific about the purposes for which we use each category of data.
Data provided by or collected from our Visitors ("Visitor Data")
When Visitors use or browse one of our Sites, we collect their IP addresses and usage information such as page views, clicks, and browser type.
If a Visitor submits a request for a trial 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 information or materials requested, including marketing materials, newsletters and other related content, perform analytics on how the Site, Platform, and Services are used, improve the use of the Site, Platform, or Services, and for other legitimate business purposes.
Data provided by or collected from our Contributors ("Contributor Data")
When a Contributor creates an account with UX Mining, we will collect the Contributor’s name, username, and password, zip code, and email address.
We may also ask each Contributor to provide us with additional information necessary or helpful for UX Mining to be able to determine which Tests are best directed to that Contributor. Examples of information we may collect are: 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 provided on a voluntary basis and only collected as permitted by applicable law; devices owned (e.g. computer, smartphone, tablet); and computer operating system.
UX Mining uses Contributor Data to provide and improve its Services, pay Contributors, provide information on how to use our Platform and Services to our Contributors, and for other legitimate business purposes.
As a Contributor takes part in a Test, we make a recording of the Contributor’s activities, which may include recordings of the Contributor’s voice, 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").
Intellectual property rights in the Recordings, which may include Personal Data and face Recordings, are assigned by Contributors to UX Mining under the terms of the Contributor Terms of Service in consideration for Contributors’ use of the Platform and Services. Face Recordings are owned by and controlled by the Customer or UX Mining, as applicable.
UX Mining uses Recordings to provide Services to Customers, to market its products and services, to protect against fraudulent or illegal activity, to improve the UX Mining Platform and Services and for other legitimate business purposes.
Privacy for Minors
From time to time, UX Mining’s Customers seek feedback from minor children (ages 18 and younger) using the Platform for Tests specifically designed for children. To facilitate those Tests, we require that a parent or legal guardian consent prior to a child engaging in a Test through their parent’s or legal guardian’s Contributor account. Our Customers are required to ensure that Tests which are specifically designed for children are for age-appropriate products and services and the Recording is limited to only captures the child’s voice. No other information is to be collected about the child by the Customer. The child’s responses may be used for the same purposes and subject to the same obligations, restrictions and conditions as any other similarly-situated Contributor response. By accepting and authorizing a Test for a child, the parent or legal guardian (as applicable) is consenting to such child’s participation in the Tests through the Platform for the benefit of the Customer. We may require that Customers sign additional terms for testing with children. In the event a parent has a reason to believe that their child is participating in a Test administered via the Platform without authorization, or wishes to exercise any of the parental rights set forth in this section or applicable law, such parent may contact UX Mining at email@example.com.
Data provided by our Customers ("Customer Data")
During a Customer’s use of the Platform and Services, Customer’s employees are asked to provide information such as name and contact information, including email address, address, telephone, or other relevant Personal Data.
Customer Data is used by UX Mining to identify each Customer and provide them with access to the Platform and Services, to bill Customers, and to meet UX Mining’s contractual obligations. We also use Customer Data to improve our Platform and Services and to provide Customers with notices about improvements and best practices in using the Platform and Services, as well as other legitimate business purposes.
It is the Customer’s responsibility to ensure that collection and processing of Recordings from a Test it has created is handled in accordance with applicable laws. For Customers in the EEA, please see our GDPR Notice. For Customers in California, please see our CCPA Notice.

UX Mining uses this information to improve the Site, Platform, and Services, as well as to prevent fraud and secure information.

Automated decision making
UX Mining may use automated decision making using a variety of signals derived from account activity to help identify and suspend accounts sending spam or engaged in other abusive or fraudulent activity or who have not engaged with the us for an extended period of time. Holders of accounts suspended under these circumstances are notified of the suspension and given an opportunity to request human review of the suspension decision.
How we share your personal data
Data Processors and Subprocessors
UX Mining discloses Personal Data to our third-party agents, contractors, or service providers who are hired to perform services on our behalf. These providers may operate or support certain functions of the Services, and in some cases collect information directly. Below is an illustrative list of functions for which we may use third-party service providers:
- Analytics services
- Customer support services SaaS platform
- Billing services and payment gateway providers
- Hosting and content delivery network services
- Job application/fielding service providers,
Unless you and the Company have agreed otherwise, we generally do not directly collect your payment information and we do not store your payment information. We use a third-party payment processor which collects payment information on our behalf in order to complete transactions such as to pay Contributors. While our administrators are able to view and track actual transactions via the third-party payment processor’s customer portal, with the exception of the last 4 digits of your credit card, credit card type, zip code and expiration date, we do not have access to or process your credit card information.
As we continue to grow, we may purchase websites, applications, subsidiaries, and other businesses or business units. We may share your data among our corporate group companies. Alternatively, we may sell businesses or business units, merge with other entities, and/or sell assets or stock, in some cases as part of a reorganization or liquidation in bankruptcy. As part of these transactions, we may transfer your Personal Data to a successor entity upon a merger, consolidation or other corporate reorganization in which UX Mining participates, or to a purchaser or acquirer of all or a portion of UX Mining’s assets, bankruptcy included.
Legal Obligations and Security
If we are required to disclose Personal Data by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena, warrant, or other judicial or administrative order, our policy is to respond to legal mandates that are properly issued.
Note that if we receive information that provides us with a good faith belief that there is an exigent emergency involving the danger of death or serious physical injury to a person, we may provide information to law enforcement trying to prevent or mitigate the danger (if we have it), to be determined on a case-by-case basis.
How we store your data
We retain your Personal Data in accordance with your instructions, including those in the applicable terms of service accepted by you and any terms governing your use of the Platform and Services. We may also retain your Personal Data where we have an ongoing legitimate business purpose for doing so. We must retain information when it is needed for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims (also known as a "litigation hold"). In this case, we retain the information as long as needed for exercising respective potential legal claims.
We use the following criteria to determine our retention periods: the amount, nature and sensitivity of your information, the reasons for which we collect and process your Personal Data, the length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide you with access to our Services, and applicable legal requirements.
If you have questions about, or need further information concerning, our data retention periods, please send an email at Contact@uxmining.com.
At UX Mining’s option, we may delete Personal Data one year after our business relationship ends, subject to our document retention policies and practices. When we have no ongoing legitimate business purpose to process your Personal Data, we may either delete or anonymize it. Deletion may not be possible if your Personal Data was anonymized. In that case, the anonymized data will not be able to be combined with other data to identify you.
If you ask UX Mining to delete specific Personal Data of yours, and we are the data controller, we will honor your request by deleting or anonymizing the data unless deleting that information prevents us from carrying out necessary business functions, such as delivering and billing for our services, calculating taxes, or conducting required audits and fulfilling contractual obligations to our Customers, Contributors or others.
How you can control your data
Visitors, Contributors, and Customers who wish to request access to or correction of Personal Data for which UX Mining is the data controller should contact UX Mining at Contact@uxmining.com.
