We would sincerely like to thank you for your interest in taking part in our surveys! We would like to share with you more about our policies on privacy, which we review on a regular basis and update on this page as necessary.

Be assured that we are not trying to sell or promote anything. Please note also that you will never be asked to pay for becoming or for being a member of Opinio Quest. We are simply interested in hearing about what you think of products and services, what you are familiar with, what you may use or not use, and the like. No personal information is sought from or about you, without your prior knowledge and agreement.

We will communicate with you and collect data only as is reasonable concerning the conduct of research or the administration of survey activities. For example, we require that you answer a number of profile questions prior to becoming our member so that we can provide you with invitations to surveys that are likely going to apply for you. Also, we need to know your address information to be able to process money transfers to you when you reach your preferred points level threshold.

Please note that we conduct marketing research studies (post-survey) using scientific methods and we promise that, in obtaining your cooperation, we will not mislead you about the general nature of the research or the use that will be made of the findings nor regarding the average time we expect that it will take to complete a survey.

Confidentiality of data:

The answers you give us will be treated as confidential unless, in rare cases, where we ask for and you explicitly give your specific consent to the contrary. Should we ask you for permission to pass data on in a form that allows you to be personally identified; we will ensure that the information will be used only for the purposes that you have explicitly approved of.

Neither we nor any partnering company of ours will send you unsolicited e-mail that does not either relate to a given research project, the administration of your account or data, or information that will be helpful to you as a panel member. As with all forms of marketing and opinion research, your cooperation is voluntary at all times. You are entitled at any stage a given research project, or subsequently, to ask that part or all of the record of your interview be destroyed or deleted. Wherever reasonable and practical we will carry out such a request.

Privacy Policy:

Opinio Quest takes the privacy concerns of everyone seriously. For further information about how we use information collected from you, please review our "Privacy Policy".

Membership eligibility:

Opinio Quest is open to individuals who are 18 years of age and older and a resident of one of the countries were we have survey panels. Membership is specific to one individual with a unique e-mail address. A person may not appear as a member multiple times (e.g. under multiple identities) within the Opinio Quest membership.

Becoming a Panel member:

While some Site content is available to anonymous online visitors, other services and content may be restricted to use by members of the site. In order to become a member, an individual must provide truthful information when registering with the site and may not use any aliases or other means to mask his or her true identity. If an individual provides any materially relevant information during sign-up that is found to be untrue, inaccurate, is not reasonably current nor complete, or Opinio Quest and/or one of its agents has reasonable grounds to suspect such information is untrue, inaccurate, not reasonably current or complete, Opinio Quest and/or its authorized agents have the right to terminate that individuals membership and refuse any and all current or future access to, or use of the Site, and may also, upon its sole discretion, declare any accumulated rewards or prizes in any amount otherwise creditable to the individual to be considered null and void.

Initiating and maintaining Panel membership:

In order to access the member's area for Opinio Quest, each visitor during registration will be required to set up a user name. A password will be sent to you via email. You are responsible for the security of your password and will be solely liable for any use or unauthorized use under such a password.

Frequency of survey invitation and participation by members of Opinio Quest:

In their personal information contained in their online profile, members may indicate the maximum number of surveys they would like to complete in a month. Members may receive invitations to complete surveys frequently up to the self-imposed quotas they indicate or panel members may receive no invitations at all. After completing a given survey, a member may experience a gap of some number of days before another survey invitation is offered. While every attempt is made to send each member survey invitations frequently up to the desired frequency, due to various factors, a given member may not receive as many invitations to participate in surveys as they would like. Note that Opinio Quest is under no obligation to offer any specific or minimum number of survey invitations whatsoever.

As long as members keep their account in good standing (i.e. profile information is updated, a reasonable level of participation of offered survey invitations is achieved, etc.) earned money will be maintained without expiration. The points do become inactive on the account if the panelist has not been active for a certain amount of time. A record of the points is still there, they just do not show on the balance. To reactivate the points, you must send an email to us.

Unauthorized use:

An individual may not use any technological devices such as spiders, robots or other automated data mining techniques to catalog, download, store or otherwise reproduce or distribute content available on the Site. Neither is an individual permitted to manipulate the results of any panel, poll, survey or prize draws on this Site or in the context of any activity engaged in as a consequence of panel membership. You may not take any action to interfere with the Site or any other user's use of the Site, including, without limitation, via means of overloading, "flooding", "mailbombing" or "crashing" the Site. You may not send unsolicited email, including promotions and/or advertising of products or services. You may not frame portions of the Site within another website or alter the appearance of the Site. Opinio Quest will fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order, within the limits of any applicable law, requesting or directing Opinio Quest to disclose the identity of anyone posting any such information or materials.

Inactivity and termination of account by Opinio Quest:

If a member does not participate in any survey during a selected extended time period, Opinio Quest may elect, in its sole discretion, to terminate his or her membership without notice. Other grounds for termination without notice include but are not limited to inadequate or untruthful survey responses and the panel member having undeliverable e-mail addresses or mailboxes that are full after multiple attempts to contact the member. In addition, Opinio Quest may, in its sole discretion, consider any other fact or condition as sufficient grounds for membership termination. After membership is terminated, the terminated individual will stop being sent invitations to participate in surveys as a member. Opinio Quest may or may not at its discretion communicate notice of termination to the panel member. If through not receiving survey invitations or through some other means, a panel member suspects that their membership has been terminated in the site, they may contact Opinio Quest using the contact information available in the "Contact" tab of this Site. In general, in cases where terminations are due to inactivity, outstanding rewards (i.e. if beyond redemption threshold levels) may be claimed for 90 days following the date of termination. After that period, the individual’s ability to claim an award will expire. As a condition of membership, you hereby waive and release any and all claims against Opinio Quest and its affiliates arising from or related to such termination.
