Welcome to our official Terms of Use.

A few highlights: We strive to create a transparent fair playing field for all 99tests users. That’s why we insist that all users (customers and testers alike) use valid email addresses, use their real names, and agree to never disclose information about other 99tests users. For example, testers are not permitted to share information about 99tests customers, their applications or any testing results of 99tests web properties (e.g., our private tester forums or our platform). This means no talking on Facebook™, Twitter™, blogs, forums, media or any other digital media about 99tests customers or their apps. Likewise, customers cannot share information about testers via 99tests media.
