Trial Participant’s Agreement

Virgin Media (hereafter “Virgin Media”, “VM”, “us”, “we”, “our”) is running a trial of our new Virgin Media App Lab (the VM App Lab”) (the “Trial”). The purpose of the Trial is to identify and validate mobile app features that drive engagement.

This Agreement governs your participation in the Trial. Only a selected number of Customers will be chosen to participate in the Trial. In consideration of Virgin Media providing you with the VM App Lab on a Trial basis, you agree to the terms of this Agreement. You also agree and warrant the following; that all the information you submitted in the Trial recruitment survey and application process is accurate and complete, that you have disclosed to us any employment or relationships that might affect your eligibility, and that you will inform us immediately if you no longer meet the eligibility requirements set out in clause 2.

For the purpose of the VM App Lab, Customers will only be able to see a limited amount of data regarding their account information. This means that if a Participant has multiple Virgin Media products or services, only some of them will be displayed in the VM App Lab. If Customers wish to view their complete account information, they must access their account through the traditional Virgin Media channels.

If you have any questions about your eligibility, the Trial, or this Agreement, please contact the VM App Lab team at . Any problems with the VM App Lab should be notified to this address for resolution rather than to our normal customer care channels.
