Solely for your convenience, we present a summary of your rights and obligations, that does not construe as the binding agreement:
First, TestFairy shall retain all your personal information and all your end users' personal information in strict confidence.
TestFairy shall not disclose any personal information without the explicit consent of each data subject.
Notwithstanding, TestFairy may use aggregated, non personally identifiable information, as long as such information cannot be re-identified.
Second, TestFairy is an application meant for testing purposes. If you wish to test your app, you will be required to upload the relevant files to TestFairy’s servers, where TestFairy shall modify them to add the specific monitoring and testing features as you requested. Following this, you shall be granted access to TestFairy’s monitoring and reporting dashboard, where you shall receive relevant information.
You are solely responsible for distributing your app to others. Meaning, don’t add viruses, don’t trick users to install these apps, don’t wrap other people’s apps in TestFairy’s testing application and never, I mean never, use the TestFairy service to harm others.
Third, when you use the service, TestFairy shall retain some information about your users and yourself; such information may be available to yourself, but TestFairy may use it, in an aggregated, non-personally identifiable, manner, and distribute it to selected partners and clients (such as to identify system-wide bugs, or to create better services).
Fourth, while TestFairy employs best efforts to keep all information secure, and shall employ means to prevent unauthorized access,
some of your information is sent or hosted by 3rd party services, such as Zendesk CRM, Google Apps, and Amazon S3, and therefore TestFairy cannot be liable in any case the information was breached.
Fifth, TestFairy provides the service on an AS-IS basis, and it shall not be liable to any damage of any sort.
Lastly, use the services carefully, and notify your testers on exactly what will you be doing with their information.
