Questions about Surveys

Surveys are conducted because businesses, governments, public bodies, and similar organisations 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.
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 customised 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.
Unfortunately there is no other way to take part in these online surveys, you need to complete them over the Internet.

Questions about Privacy

No. We do not sell the personal information of our members and we will never try to sell you a product or service.
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 programmes and fulfill your requests for incentives; (v) to facilitate your entry into our prize draw and communicate with you regarding prize draw entries; and (vi) to update our records.
It is possible that someone made a typing error and accidentally submitted your e-mail address while asking to become a member of OpinionWorld. It's also possible that someone has used your e-mail address without your permission. If you don't want to join, simply ignore the e-mail and the reminder that will be sent. Your details will not be included on our members' list and you will not be contacted again.
