Before starting a maze (i.e. a survey created in Maze), you may occasionally see the following warning in the initial screen:
I understand that all personal data shown on-screen and data I enter will be viewable by the test creator
In order to start the survey, you must agree to that condition. To do so, click the I understand checkbox.
Why do I see this warning?
This warning appears for mazes that include a website test. In this type of test, the creator of the maze is asking you to complete a task on their website. For instance, find an article on their blog.
This means that you will interact with a real website for the duration of the test. During the test, a testing window will pop up. While you’re on that testing window, your actions and any data you enter in the website being tested will be recorded and shared with the creator of the maze.
For instance, if you log in to a personal area on that testing window (e.g. an account dashboard), the creator of the survey may see any information in it.
We show the warning so that you’re aware of the privacy implications of your actions when testing the website.
Enabling screen, audio, and camera recordings
Sometimes, the test creator may also ask to capture your audio, camera, and screen, so they can follow along as you go through the website test.
In those cases, Maze will ask for permission to record. In order to continue with the test, you need to allow or deny it.
If you allow recording, you will have the option to either mute your audio or pause the recording altogether anytime during the task.
How can I control which data is visible to the creator of the maze?
After starting the website test, there will be a Stop task button at the bottom left corner of the screen. This is the button you’ll press to conclude the test.
You are free to stop the test anytime.
You can also get in touch with the creator of the maze and ask them to delete your testing session data.
