If you have elected to participate in the Asana Research Panel or an individual Asana Research Project, then you agree to the following Research Terms of Participation (these “Terms of Participation” or “Terms”):

General Requirements

You must be at least eighteen (18) years of age to be a member of the Asana Research Panel or to participate in any individual Asana Research Project.

How Our Research Panel and Research Projects Work

The Asana Research Panel - The Asana Research Panel operates on an ongoing basis and is designed to solicit general feedback about Asana’s products and services through certain activities including but not limited to surveys and telephone and/or video interviews. If you are a member of the Asana Research Panel, then we may reach out to you from time to time, using the email address you provided when you registered for the panel, to invite you to participate in individual studies (each a “Study’ and together the “Studies’). We will notify you in advance if your participation in an individual Study requires you to use a telephone, computer or other device. Participation in each individual Study is voluntary and you may accept or decline to participate as you wish. Declining to participate in an individual Study does not automatically terminate your participation in the Asana Research Panel. If you would like to terminate your participation so that you are no longer notified about upcoming Studies, please follow the instructions under “Cancellation/Termination” below.

Individual Asana Research Projects - Individual Asana Research Projects are formed from time to time to allow us to focus a bit more deeply on a particular aspect of our product offering. These are “one time’ research projects and participants are not necessarily part of the ongoing Asana Research Panel. We will notify you in advance if your participation in an Asana Research Project requires you to: (1) use a telephone, computer or other device; and/or (2) attend in person and, if so, the location of such in-person event.

Beta Programs - You may be given access to an unreleased version of Asana’s software (a “Beta Version’) for the purpose of evaluating potential enhancements, improvements or updates. Unless you have received our express written permission in each instance, you may not publish or otherwise publicly disclose information related to the Beta Version. You may not copy, modify, disassemble, decompile, reverse engineer, or otherwise attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Beta Version or any portion thereof. Beta Versions are experimental in nature, and all Beta Versions are provided on an “as is’ basis without warranties of any kind (express or implied) and may be discontinued or modified at any time. Beta Versions are for evaluation and testing purposes, not for production use, not supported, not subject to availability or security obligations, and may be subject to additional terms. Asana shall have no liability for any harm or damage arising out of or in connection with Beta Versions. Asana is under no obligation to publicly release a Beta Version and access to a Beta Version may be withdrawn at any time at Asana’s sole discretion.
