3.2 User testing of Huddly’s video conference experience
In order to better understand what makes a good experience, we will invite testers to participate in a real-time video conference.

When the video conference has ended, we will ask you questions face to face regarding your experience of the recordings, for which we will process your answers.

We limit the access to personal data that is processed in relation to the User Testing to personnel who have a need for access in order to carry out their tasks. We have mechanisms for access control so that personal data is only available for personnel with a justifiable need.
We delete personal data when there is no longer a need to retain these for the purposes for which they were collected, see section 3.
If you have registered for the User Testing but are not picked to be a participant, we will inform you of this through e-mail and subsequently delete your personal data. This also applies if you receive an offer to become a participant but decline such offer.

In addition to this, Huddly will retain video recordings on their serves indefinitely. Such recordings are necessary in order for our current and future products to function throughout their lifetime and for us to provide our customers with the best user experiences.
