www.researchopinions.co.uk is a website operated by Research Opinions (“We”).Our offices are, 3 Canal St, Manchester, M1 3HE.
Should you be accepted as a member, you will be sent surveys by e-mail, and may be invited to participate in other surveys (e.g telephone or focus groups). Members are free to complete as many or as few surveys as they want.
The accuracy and integrity of Research Opinions surveys and the data collected is reliant on the honesty of registered panellists in matters such as the personal information they provide in respect of their accounts and their responses to the questions in the surveys they complete. We will close the account, without notice, of any member who we believe, knowingly provides false information or provides information carelessly or incompletely. Any payments due in respect to that member will be forfeited at the date of closure of that account. Any member who creates one or more duplicate accounts or provides inaccurate information in order to earn additional rewards, will also have all active accounts closed. We reserve the right to take any further legal action necessary and allowed in respect of deliberate non-compliance by members. For the avoidance of doubt, any member found contravening these terms will be prevented indefinitely from becoming a member of any online access panel or offline research owned or run by us.
Any payments to members will be agreed in advance and will be paid via the members personal Paypal account or in amazon vouchers-members can specify which. Where we pay money to members, and such rewards are normally subject to taxation, all such costs are the sole responsibility of the person receiving the money. We will not be held liable for any taxation, or related costs, resulting from any payments made to members, and you indemnify us fully against such liability.
You may cease to be a member of the website at any time. Should you wish to do so, your account will be closed and any monies due to the date of termination will be sent. After the date of termination, no further monies will be payable. All members are free to complete as many or as few surveys as they wish. However, if members consistently do not participate in relevant surveys over a significant period of time, Research Opinions reserve the right to cancel membership, having established that the member is no longer an active member of the panel.
