We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This policy (together with our terms of use terms and conditions and any other documents referred to on it) sets out the basis on which any information we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us.

Your profile

You are in control of how much information appears on your profile according to the preferences you set when completing the registration form. The site has features which enable you to modify or remove any information that appears on your profile at any time.

We recommend that you take time to consider which information you want to appear on your profile so that you do not share any information with other users of the site that may allow them to contact you outside of the site.


If you are under the age of 18, we will need your parent or guardian to consent to us collecting personal information from you. We will collect personal information from your parent or guardian and will store, use and process this information in the same way as we store, use and process information collected from you, but only for the purpose of seeking their consent to the collection of personal information from you.

If you are under the age of 18 we cannot make payments for participation in our clients’ market research activities to you directly, but we can make these payments to your parent or guardian. In these circumstances we will collect, store and process your parent or guardian’s financial information for the purpose of making payments only.

We recommend that children using the site take extra care when posting information either on their profile or on the site in general. Children’s profiles have a privacy setting of “private” as their default, which means that their information can only be shared with other site users that are actively chosen to have access to such information.

    Where we store your information

    The information that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the processing of your bank details and the provision of support services. By submitting your information, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

    All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted.

    Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted to our site. Therefore, any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. We limit access to personal information about you to employees and third parties who we reasonably believe need access to that information to provide products or services to you.

    Uses made of your information

    We use information held about you in the following ways:

    • To display such information on your profile according to the settings you choose when setting up your profile;

    • To evaluate your suitability for participation in the various user groups or’ research activities accessible through our site;

    • To verify your identity;

    • To facilitate payments made by or to you;

    • To ensure that content from our site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer;
    • To provide you with information, products or services that you request from us or which we feel may interest you, where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes;

    • To carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us;

We do not disclose information about identifiable individuals to our advertisers and clients, but we may provide them with aggregate information about our users (for example, we may inform them that 500 men aged under 30 have rated a particular product as “excellent”). We may make use of the information we have collected from you to enable us to comply with our advertisers’ and clients’ wishes by displaying their advertisement to that target audience.

This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
