By participating in the Data Collection you confirm: (a) you are over eighteen (18) years old; and (b) participating in the Data Collection will not violate any agreement with a third party or create a conflict of interest.

Voluntary Participation.

Your participation is completely voluntary. If you choose not to participate or if you choose to withdraw, there will be no adverse consequences. If you wish to withdraw from this Data Collection, see Section 7 (“Questions”) of this agreement. You may not benefit directly from this Data Collection and you will not be compensated.

Data Collection, Retention, Use, Sharing and Risks


As part of the Data Collection, you will be asked to provide interactions, annotations, feedback and observations on certain images and data presented to you regarding an upcoming video game. This may include, but is not limited to, (i) how long the image was on the screen, (ii) your session length, (iii) recordings of your interactions with the images and the times you made such interactions, and (iv) your input drawing or modifications to the images (all data set forth in this paragraph, the “Data”).


Data will be retained for as long as needed to fulfill the Purpose, which shall not exceed 10 years.


Data may be used for the Purpose. Google may: (a) remove personally identifying information to create an anonymized data set; (b) aggregate the Data with information from other participants in this Data Collection or related Google studies; or (c) use any other reasonable method to disassociate the Data from the personally identifying information of Data Collection participants. Google may retain, use, or share non-personally identifying or aggregate data without limitation for any purpose.

Data Transfer.

You consent to Google processing Data outside the country or region where the data is originally collected or where you are located, including in countries where you may have fewer rights in respect of your information than you do in your country of residence. Data may be processed by Google LLC in the United States or Google affiliates and service providers acting on Google’s behalf outside of your country of residence.

Sharing with Third Parties.

Google may share the Data with third parties such as affiliates and contractors who agree to meet our standards for protecting the information including vendors who analyze and annotate the Data.

Termination and Requests for Deletion

Termination by Google.
