Changes to the service and terms and conditions

We may update these Terms and Conditions at any point, and it's your responsibility to review this page regularly. These changes are legally binding. However, any such changes won't affect studies you're already involved in or any rewards you're already due.

Major changes to these Terms and Conditions will be communicated to you in advance, where possible. If you disagree with any changes, you should stop using our site and services. Continued use after changes are implemented means you accept those changes.

Our services

The services offered are outlined on our site and application, primarily focused on creating tailored surveys and studies for B2B clients, derived from client databases for quantitative research insights.

You acknowledge that you are solely accountable for how you engage with our services.

Once you have registered and set up an account, you may begin participating in our studies. Unlike multiple-choice formats, our studies are designed around quantitative research methods. We may reach out to you for new opportunities or to remind you to complete an ongoing study, in line with our Privacy Policy. To participate, simply follow the instructions displayed on-screen. You have the option to save a study and return to it later. Clicking the "Submit" button will send your answers to us.

Our studies can be specific, and it's crucial that you have sufficient knowledge or experience in the topic to provide valid answers. We may include preliminary questions to gauge your expertise. If you're found ineligible for a particular study, you will be informed and no rewards will be issued.

By submitting any answers (referred to as "study responses"), you grant us and our affiliated companies a perpetual, irrevocable, global, non-exclusive, royalty-free right and license to use, modify, publish, create derivative works from, distribute, display such study responses, as described in our Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy. You also waive any rights to be identified as the author of such study responses. This agreement extends to any personal data included, and you must secure consent from any other individuals involved before submission.

We reserve the right to retain your study responses for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which they were collected.
