Immersive Labs User Research Participation Terms & Conditions

If you do not agree to any of these terms and conditions, please do not accept the invitation or otherwise participate in user research for Immersive Labs.
1. User Research Process
Immersive Labs (we, us, our) asks the users of our Platform (you, your) to participate in user research. We do this so that we can identify unmet customer needs, evaluate design concepts and solicit feedback.
We will ask you to participate in user research via email communication. The email will set out the nature of the research and what we require from you. We provide incentives for research participation in the form of cash and non-cash benefits, the details of which will be set out in the email. The incentive options available include (but are not limited to) VISA pre-paid cards, PayPal, retail gift cards and charitable donations (each a Reward). Each Reward will be a maximum value of £50 (or the equivalent in other available currencies).
If you respond to the email to participate, we will direct you to a third-party tool called Calendly for you to let us know your availability to schedule the research session (Session). Your name and email address will be shared with us and Calendly for these purposes.
The Session will be conducted using a video conferencing tool (usually Zoom) and will last around 45 minutes. Our experts will ask you a series of questions relating to your experience on the Platform and the Session will be recorded.
Following the Session, we will pass your name and email address to our third-party partner, Tremendous. Tremendous facilitates the provision of Reward(s) issued by third-party providers.
