At Ballpark, participant testers may be known or unknown to you. Known participants could be members of your own team, your customer base, or anyone you individually invite to participate.
Where the participants are unknown to you, and sourced using our recruitment feature, we take privacy and the maintenance of participant anonymity seriously.
Personally identifiable data
You must not attempt to identify participants, or collect any data that could allow a member of your team to personally identify them through a data search. Personal data that you must not ask for as part of your research includes:
First name/ Last name
Date of birth
Full post code
Video & audio recordings
You can choose to make video / audio a requirement of your test, however the control always lies with the participant tester. They may choose not to proceed with the test if this is a required step.
Video and audio recordings would be considered Personal data, and if you will be collecting that from your participants, it is important to bear in mind your obligations as the data controller.
More information can be found in the article Personal data - who is responsible for it?
Your obligations when collecting data
You must comply with all Applicable Data Protection Laws relating to the protection of Personal Data which apply to your business.
Within your Ballpark project, you can use the Legal Question step to add a consent form, privacy notice or legal terms to your study.
