it could say that more than the test was purchased unless it is clearly
spelled out in the agreement and that agreement is public.  It is sort

Paying a third party to beta test a product hardly guarantees it's
independency, however it is a recognised and acceptable alternative that
supposedly avoids compromising the integrity of the tests.
