TRP Surveys is an online survey that helps the media industry understand the opinion and viewing habits of the public.
Please read the following Terms and Conditions carefully.
The Terms and Conditions should be read with the Privacy Notice which gives details on how we collect, store, use, share and protect your personal data and the Cookie Notice. By joining TRP Surveys you agree to these Terms and Conditions and confirm that you have read, understood and agree to the Privacy Notice and Cookie Notice. If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions and the Privacy and Cookie Notices, do not sign up for TRP Surveys.
We reserve the right to amend these Terms and Conditions and/or the Privacy and Cookie Notices at any time. If we do this we will send you an email to let you know. If you do not agree to any of the changes that we make you must unsubscribe from TRP Surveys (please see the section titled “Leaving TRP Surveys”). Otherwise we will assume that you have accepted and agree to the changes made.
By signing up for TRP Surveys you agree to receive survey invites by email when a survey that you are eligible for becomes available. TRP Surveys does not guarantee that you will receive a certain amount of surveys in a set time frame or when you will receive your first survey. There is no upper limit on the number of surveys that you might receive. You may take part in as many or as few surveys as you want to.
1. Signing up for TRP Surveys
There is no charge for taking part in TRP Surveys. Any personal data that you provide will only be used as described in our Privacy and Cookie Notices and in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
To be accepted as a member of TRP Surveys you must:
- Have only one account (multiple sign ups will not be accepted).
- Sign up as yourself and not pretend to be any other person.
- Be an individual – not a corporation or any other type of entity.
- Complete the sign up form honestly and accurately ensuring that all information requested is complete.
- Provide a valid email address so you can receive our surveys. This needs to be unique to you and cannot be shared with another member of TRP Surveys.
- Be living in the UK and provide a residential UK address.
- Be over the age of 16.
- NOT work in market research or the media industry.
- NOT have a partner / immediate family member who works for TRP Research Ltd.
It is important that you check your details carefully when signing up for TRP Surveys. Don’t forget to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book to ensure that you don’t miss out on any surveys. We cannot be held responsible if you do not receive our surveys.
We monitor all member sign ups and survey records as part of our quality checks. If we find out / suspect that you have signed up for TRP Surveys multiple times we reserve the right to immediately remove any or all of the accounts without notice and to refuse any future sign ups from you. If you are removed you will lose any credits you have left in your account and you will no longer be sent surveys, receive credits or get any rewards that are due.
2. PureSpectrum Surveys
You need to be accepted as a member of TRP Surveys and have opted in to the PureSpectrum surveys in order to be able to take part in these extra surveys. You will be sent an email from TRP Surveys on a daily basis containing 5 unique links which can be used to access surveys from PureSpectrum on their marketplace. These links will be unique to you, contain your basic demographic information and must not be shared with anyone else or changed.
Each link will allow you to complete 1 survey on PureSpectrum’s marketplace, meaning that you will be able to complete up to 5 extra surveys a day, in addition to the surveys from TRP Surveys. It’s your choice if you want to take the PureSpectrum surveys.
PureSpectrum will decide which surveys you see / are able to take part in based on the broad demographic information provided in your survey link. This means that the surveys you see may be different to the surveys that other people see.
As with TRP Surveys, you will receive credits towards your chosen reward for every PureSpectrum survey you complete. Each survey you complete through the PureSpectrum links will be worth half a credit, which will be automatically added to your account within a week of the survey being successfully completed. As always, credits are not transferable between accounts, have no cash value and can only be used to pay out your chosen reward. Please see section 4 “Rewards” for more information on how your reward is paid out.
As these surveys are provided by an outside company and we have no control over the questions, content or quotas, we are not able to help with any problems or issues relating to the survey itself.
If you unsubscribe from TRP Surveys or are removed for any reason, you will automatically be unsubscribed from the PureSpectrum surveys at the same time and will no longer receive any surveys to complete.
The Terms and Conditions specified below relating to TRP Surveys also apply to PureSpectrum. In particular, please pay attention to sections 8 (Filling in surveys) and 9 (Confidentiality) and make sure you comply when completing your surveys. If we have reasonable grounds to suspect that the data you provide is untrue, inaccurate or that you are not filling in the PureSpectrum surveys properly we will stop sending you these extra surveys and may end your membership with TRP Surveys without notice.
3. Updating personal data
You are responsible for making sure that your personal data including your contact details are accurate and up to date. Your contact details will be used to send you surveys, rewards and to communicate with you about TRP Surveys. We may end your membership with TRP Surveys without notice if you fail to keep your personal data accurate and up to date. If this happens you will lose any credits you have left in your account and you will no longer be sent surveys, receive credits or get any rewards that are due.
We cannot be held responsible for lost vouchers that were sent to an old address because your address was not updated. Please email email@example.com to let us know about any changes to your contact details.
4. Receiving credits and rewards
You will receive credits towards your chosen reward for every survey you complete. Each credit that you earn will be automatically added to your account. Credits are not transferable between accounts, have no cash value and can only be used to pay out your chosen reward. Once you have been sent your reward it cannot be returned or exchanged. You will be rewarded for taking part in our surveys with shopping vouchers, charity donations or you can raise money for a community group.
All rewards will be managed by TRP Research. You should email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a change of reward. We will continue to send you rewards as long as you remain a member of TRP Surveys. We will let you know how many credits each survey is worth when we send the survey out and in the survey itself. Our surveys vary in length and may not include the same questions each time.
For more about the rewards we offer please visit www.trpsurveys.com/reward/. Rewards are subject to change at any time.
- If your reward choice is a shopping voucher you will be notified by email and sent a £5 voucher on the Tuesday after you have reached 20 credits. We will let you know how many credits you have each week in Wednesday’s email.
- If your reward choice is a charity donation we will automatically pay £5 to your chosen charity and notify you by email on the Tuesday after you have reached 20 credits. We will let you know how many credits you have each week in Wednesday’s email.
- If your reward choice is a community group we will automatically pay £50 into the group’s nominated bank account once the group has reached 200 credits, unless an alternative agreement has been made with your group. This payment will usually occur within a couple of weeks after the group has reached the payment threshold, where we have the group’s bank account details. This gives us time to process any credits that are due and pay into the group’s account. We will send you and other members of the group an email once the group has been paid.
5. Community groups
In order to raise money for a community group through taking our surveys you will need to name the group when prompted in the sign up form. A community group could include sports teams, choirs, societies, community volunteer groups etc. We reserve the right to decline specific groups entry onto TRP Surveys for any reason including dishonesty and groups that do not exist. If your group has not been accepted for any reason we will let you know.
Each individual community group needs to have between 3 and 20 members to qualify for the scheme. If you chose a community group when you signed up but haven’t been able to get the 3 members needed to qualify, we may contact you to see if a recruiter can visit to encourage more sign ups or ask you to change to a different reward. If your group reaches 20 members, the maximum group size allowed, we reserve the right to refuse any further sign ups to your group without notice.
Once your group has collected enough credits we will ask for the group’s bank account details so we can pay £50 into the account. If your group has not been paid before we will verify your group before we agree to set up any payments. See section 3 for more details on paying out rewards.
6. Referring friends
Current members can refer their friends to TRP Surveys by completing the refer a friend form when we are looking for more members. You must be a current member of TRP Surveys to be able to refer friends and receive rewards. In addition the friend must meet any extra criteria stated in the refer a friend emails/surveys to qualify for the scheme and receive the reward.
You must provide your friend’s name and email address so that we can send them an invite – make sure you check their details carefully. We will not send out an invite to your friend if we are missing any details in the refer a friend form.
Where needed we will also ask for your name and email address as part of the refer a friend survey so that we can link the referral back to you and reward you with the extra referral credits/reward. If the details you provide do not match our records we will not be able to send your friend an invite.
Your name will also be included in the email inviting your friend to join TRP Surveys. We may limit the number of friends you can refer at one time and we will only send each friend a maximum of two invites. It is their choice whether or not they want to sign up for TRP Surveys.
In order to receive the refer a friend credits/reward your friend needs to sign up for TRP Surveys (see section 1) and you and your friend need to meet the criteria set out in the specific refer a friend email/survey. The criteria may not always be the same so please make sure you read the details carefully to make sure you know what you need to do in order to get the refer a friend credits/reward. Rewards will be given once the details have been checked and no later than one month after the criteria have been met as long as you are both still members of TRP Surveys. In addition, your friend must:
- Have never been a member of TRP Surveys in the past.
- Use the referral link included in the email to sign up for TRP Surveys.
You should only refer your friends if they are happy for you to give us their name and email address so we can send them an invite to join TRP Surveys. If we receive a complaint from your friend as a result of the email we have sent inviting them to join TRP Surveys we may end your membership with TRP Surveys (see section 17).
