When you register via this website to take part in paid marketing research opportunities, your contact information is entered into our panel of participants. Based on the information you provide by filling out your Personal Profile, you may receive email invitations that contain a screener link to determine your eligibility for that particular research study. If you complete the screener successfully, you may receive a phone call from one of our marketing research recruiters, who will ask you some more questions. If you complete the screener but are not called, this means that the research segment you fall into, called a "quota," has already been filled. There is no guarantee that you will be selected for any particular study.
YOU GIVE YOUR PERMISSION TO RECEIVE EMAILS, PHONE CALLS, INCLUDING YOUR CELL PHONE, AND TEXT MESSAGES FROM CONFIDE WITH REGARD TO PARTICIPATION IN MARKETING RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES.
YOUR ABILITY TO PARTICIPATE IN ONLINE SURVEYS AND/OR IN-PERSON GROUPS WILL VARY DEPENDING ON THE REQUIREMENTS AND OBJECTIVES PROVIDED BY OUR CLIENTS. WE WILL REVIEW THE INFORMATION YOU PROVIDED UPON REGISTRATION TO SELECT PANEL MEMBERS WHO MEET THE CRITERIA AND/OR PROFILE REQUIRED FOR THE SPECIFIC RESEARCH PROJECT. IF YOU DO NOT MEET THE CRITERIA AND/OR PROFILE FOR THE SPECIFIC PROJECT, YOU WILL NOT BE SELECTED TO PARTICIPATE. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT REGISTERING DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL QUALIFY AND/OR BE SELECTED FOR ANY ONLINE SURVEYS OR IN-PERSON GROUPS, AND WE HAVE NO OBLIGATION TO PROVIDE YOU WITH SURVEY OR FOCUS GROUP OPPORTUNITIES.
In order to register, you must provide all required information in our enrollment survey, which includes personal information. You will also be asked to answer a series of profile-building questions that will help us determine if you are eligible for online surveys and in-person groups. You may only sign up for one registration or account with us. Creation of more than one unique profile will result in immediate removal from our participation panel. Registration is required to be eligible to participate in online surveys and in-person groups. There is no charge for signing up with us.

Effective - September 3, 2020
Thank you for your interest and willingness to participate in our studies. We strive to collect quality and robust data through research that will improve everyday products and services for consumers like you.
It has come to our attention that there are some individuals who provide false data, refer to themselves as ineligible individuals, and/or create multiple entries so that they may receive incentives. This diminishes our ability to accurately collect data. Legally, this behavior constitutes fraud.
We hope that similar events will not occur in future efforts. It is only through the honesty, integrity, and willingness of participants that we can help our clients better their products and services for you.
Moving forward, we will require each participant to verify their name and location if selected to participate in a study. We will report all fraudulent activity to the Internet Crime Complaint Center - a section of the FBI that deals with Internet crimes, as well as the office of the Inspector General.
We thank you for your understanding.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at email@example.com.
