1. Panelist Registration Requirements
Before being able to participate in the Program, you must register as a panelist of Opinion-Central (a “Panelist”) by providing Opinion-Central.com (hereafter “Opinion-Central”) with accurate, complete and updated registration information as required by the Panelist registration form. A Panelist may not (i) activate or use more than one Panelist account; (ii) use a name subject to rights of another person without authorization from that person; (iii) use a false or misleading name, address, or email address to activate or use a Panelist account; or (iv) present or supply false or misleading information to any entity involved in the Program. Opinion-Central reserves the right to reject any applicant as a Panelist for any reason whatsoever.
Panelists must keep all registration information current at all times. Panelists may update their registration information by visiting the Update Profile section of the Site and entering the information requested. An account cannot be used or accessed by multiple persons. Any duplicate accounts are subject to cancellation, and all Points accumulated will be forfeited.
Opinion-Central reserves the right to periodically monitor Panelist's use of the Program and the Site and may request at any time that a Panelist provide proof in order to verify the accuracy of the account information provided by the Panelist at the time of registration or any time thereafter.
The Program is open only to legal residents of the United States (including the District of Columbia) and Canada, who are at least 13 years old as of date of entry and who are registered Panelists. Employees of Opinion-Central, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates and suppliers connected in any way to the Program or the operations of the Site, and those domiciled with such employees or their immediate family, are not eligible to participate. Employees of competitors of Opinion-Central, market research professionals, clients of Opinion-Central and their respective immediate family members or others living with them, are also not eligible to participate. Participation in the Program is void where prohibited or restricted by law.
Opinion-Central will not be responsible for supplying any hardware or software necessary to access the Program, or for any charges associated therewith (including, but not limited to telephone and internet provider charges).
Each Panelist is limited to one account.
2. Panelist Termination
Panelists may terminate their membership at any time by emailing Opinion-Central at carnold@Opinion-Central.com. Any Points previously earned by the Panelist will be forfeited if not redeemed prior to termination.
Each Panelist agrees not to abuse the Program by conduct which is detrimental to the interests of Opinion-Central, including without limitation attempting to accumulate Points or redeem Points in a manner that is in breach of or inconsistent with this User Agreement. Without limiting the foregoing, Panelists shall not: (a) activate or use more than one account; (b) use an automated system, device or program or other similar method to accumulate Points; (c) manipulate or interfere with the Program or any affiliated program in any way to wrongly accumulate or redeem Points; (d) present false or misleading information to Opinion-Central; (e) use or redeem Points which are obtained in violation of these Terms and Condition or which are erroneously credited to a Panelist's account; or (f) assist another individual or entity in conducting fraudulent, abusive, manipulative or illegal activity. Any Panelist suspected of engaging in any fraudulent, abusive, manipulative or illegal activity may have their account terminated and all Points cancelled in Opinion-Central’s sole discretion, and the Panelist may be referred to appropriate law enforcement agencies if such action is deemed warranted by Opinion-Central.
Panelists must not do any of the following: (a) restrict or inhibit any other Panelist from enjoying the Program or the Site; (b) send messages that contain viruses, worms or any other destructive elements; (c) send messages that are libelous, defamatory, obscene, threatening, abusive or hateful; or (d) interfere with or infringe the copyrights, trademarks, service marks, logos or confidential information of others.
Panelists may only access those portions of the Site specifically made available to Panelists. Under no circumstances are Panelists permitted to use or attempt to use the Site or any portion thereof to violate its security or the security of systems accessible through it.
Opinion-Central may, in its sole discretion, terminate or suspend any Panelist's participation in or access to all or part of the Program and the Site for any or no reason, or if a Panelist has failed or refused to respond in a timely fashion to Surveys, or has otherwise been inactive as determined by Opinion-Central, and the Panelist will thereafter have ninety (90) days in which to redeem his or her Points after which any remaining Points will be forfeited. Opinion-Central may also, in its sole discretion, terminate a Panelist’s participation in or access to all or part of the Program and the Site for breach of these Terms and Conditions, or for abuse, fraud or other improper use of the Program and the Site, and in such event all Points held in the Panelist’s account will be forfeited immediately. Opinion-Central will be the sole judge in cases of suspected abuse, fraud, or breach of these Terms and Conditions. Any decision Opinion-Central makes relating to termination or suspension of any Panelist's account (including the cancellation of Points) shall be final, binding and conclusive.
3. Accumulation of Points
Once you have become a Panelist, you can begin earning Points by undertaking various online activities. The activities that will allow you to earn Points may change from time to time, in Opinion-Central' sole discretion, and will be set forth either in this User Agreement or on the Site. The current activities that will allow you to earn Points are as follows:
Online Surveys: Panelists may earn Points by completing Surveys and/or online market research activities (collectively, “Surveys”)
Sweepstakes: Opinion-Central may, from time to time, conduct contests or events offering Points as prizes (hereafter referred to as “Sweepstakes”). Any rules and regulations applicable to the accumulation of Points through a particular sweepstakes will be published on the Site concurrently with the announcement of that Sweepstakes. Such rules and regulations shall be binding upon all participating Panelists and shall have the same force and effect as though they were fully incorporated herein.
Additional Activities: From time to time, Opinion-Central may offer additional opportunities for Panelists to earn Points. In the event that any such additional opportunity is offered, Panelists should consult the rules and regulations applicable to that particular opportunity, as well as this User Agreement, to review all terms and conditions of the opportunity.
Rules governing the method for earning Points when a Panelist participates in special promotions are subject to the specific terms and conditions of the particular promotion, as specified in the terms and conditions for any such promotion.
4. Opinion-Central Point Activities and Values
Panelists will be awarded Points for responding to each Survey based upon the estimated time to complete the Survey and any special need for responses from Panelists with particular characteristics such as age, residence, educational level or other criteria. The Points to be awarded for each Survey will be specified by Opinion-Central at the time each Survey is posted on the Site.
Panelists can view their total number of Points online by visiting the Members section of the Site. The Members page is restricted to Panelists, and Panelists must enter their username and password in order to view the Members section.
Opinion-Central reserves the right to suspend, terminate, revalue or modify, without liability, or notice to Panelists, all or part of the Points value structure and offers. Opinion-Central reserves the right to resolve all Points discrepancies in its sole discretion, and the Panelists agree to abide with any such determination. Opinion-Central reserves the right to change Point awards or other incentives granted for any particular Survey. In the event the Program is terminated, panelists will be notified and given 90 days in which to redeem their Points.
Points will be posted to a Panelist's account balance no later than 10 days after completion of a qualifying Survey, and will be available for redemption as soon as they are posted to the Panelist's account. Opinion-Central will use reasonable care to ensure that Points are accurately deposited in Panelists' accounts. However, Panelists are responsible for verifying that their Points are properly deposited, and Opinion-Central will not be liable or responsible for any errors regarding Points.
Opinion-Central may change or remove any of the Points earning activities currently recognized, at any time, with or without notice to Panelists. The Points that Panelists earn are not considered to be property and cannot be sold, transferred, or otherwise assigned to any other person, under any circumstances, without Opinion-Central's written permission.
5. Points Redemption
Panelists may redeem Points for merchandise as described on the Site and potentially for gift cards or certificates (collectively, “Rewards”). Rewards will require certain minimum Points. Completion of individual Surveys may not grant sufficient Points to meet these minimums.
All Points must be redeemed online.
Merchandise pictured on the Site may not necessarily reflect exact colors or models of actual Rewards due to printing variations and/or manufacturer's updates.
Information about products, services and/or activities on the Site is accurate to the best of Opinion-Central’s knowledge. Opinion-Central is not responsible for errors and/or omissions with respect to such information.
To redeem Points, Panelists must log onto their account and select the award within the Panelist website. The Members section is restricted to Panelists, and Panelists must enter their user name and password to view it. The value of a selected Reward cannot exceed the number of Points in the Panelist's account. Selecting a Reward of lesser value is permitted, and any unused Points will remain in the Panelist's account for future use. Opinion-Central reserves the right to change merchandise offers on its Site at its discretion and without notifying Panelists.
Any items received as a result of redemption of Points may not be exchanged, returned or redeemed for cash value (if Reward is a gift certificate or merchandise).
A Panelist may not redeem Points with a value in excess of $600 in any calendar year.
Points are non-negotiable and may only be redeemed through Opinion-Central in exchange for Rewards. Once a Panelist redeems Points, the appropriate number of Points will be deducted from the Panelist's account. Opinion-Central reserves the right to modify at any time the number of Points required to redeem any item or to participate in any activity.
The Points associated with each Reward include all charges associated with the Reward and its delivery. The Panelist will not be responsible for any other charges.
Panelists may not transfer or assign to any other person or permit anyone to make use of their membership in the Program, accumulated Points, privileges or access to the Site.
Other Opinion-Central Point redemption methods may be added or substituted in the future in Opinion-Central's sole discretion.
At no time will interest be paid on any amounts credited to your account, nor will you be entitled to any such interest.
6. Rewards Delivery
Merchandise Rewards will normally be shipped within 8 to 10 weeks. Items may arrive sooner or later due to high demand and backorders from the manufacturer. Please note that delivery time may also be longer around the holidays. Panelists will have the opportunity to verify and, if needed, change their first and last name and mailing address before the merchandise is awarded. Merchandise can only be shipped to approved U.S. and Canadian shipping locations. All merchandise Rewards are subject to availability, and some merchandise Rewards may have limited availability. Opinion-Central reserves the right to substitute unavailable merchandise with merchandise of equal or greater value.
Gift cards or certificates from participating merchants may be included as potential Rewards. Any such redemption of these is subject to such rules, requirements and limitations as the issuing merchant may impose. Cards or certificates may be sent via email (from the certificate vendor) to the email address that the Panelist is currently using on the Opinion-Central Panel.
