Questions about Surveys

  • Why are surveys conducted?

    Surveys are conducted because businesses, governments, public bodies, and similar organizations are interested in the views and attitudes of the people who use their products and services. The more they know about what customers and citizens think, the easier it is for them to improve and adapt what they supply.

  • How often will I be asked to take surveys?

    We send out survey invitations on a regular basis, but cannot say who or when any member will receive invitations. This is because each survey is customized and based around the research goals for each individual client. Depending on your profile, we may ask you to complete surveys more or less often. For this reason, we ask you to keep your profile as up to date as possible. Please note some firewalls may prevent delivery of our survey invitations.

    Generally, personal information is used: (i) to communicate with you regarding panel membership and survey participation; (ii) to tailor survey opportunities to you; (iii) to comply with legal obligations, including, without limitation, complying with taxation requirements; (iv) to administer and manage our incentive programs and fulfill your requests for incentives; (v) to facilitate your entry into our sweepstakes and communicate with you regarding sweepstakes entries; and (vi) to update our records.
