SampleStream LLC terms and conditions
 

SampleStream LLC respects the privacy of every online blog, website or respondent who participates in our research. These terms and conditions outline information SampleStream LLC may collect and how we may use that information. This Statement also specifies how blogs, websites or respondents can verify the accuracy of their Personal Information (defined below) submitted to SampleStream LLC and how to update or request deletion of Personal Information.

In addition to these Terms and Conditions we invite you to read our Privacy Policy in order to understand those principles. We've developed our terms and conditions and privacy policy from industry guidelines and standards, and local, national, and international laws and requirements. SampleStream LLC adheres to the mandated CASRO Code of Standards and Ethics for Survey Research. You may visit CASRO, and view the CASRO Code, at www.casro.org.

Personal and Demographic information
During the SampleStream LLC registration process, we collect personal information such as name, address and other personally identifiable information in order to manage your account and affiliate payment terms. SampleStream affiliates and sample buyers are in control of the Personal Information and Demographic Information provided to SampleStream LLC. We rely on our affiliates and buyers to provide updates to their Personal Information and Demographic Information through their online profiles.

Operating information
When an affiliate first joins SampleStream LLC., it is required they participate in an online property audience assessment survey as a condition of registration and final approval. This initial assessment garners no pay or payment terms for the affiliate property whatsoever. Rather this survey is used to build a site and audience profile for the member affiliate in order to qualify the online property for future surveys where payment is given. SampleStream has the right to reassess the site free of charge as required to keep the audience profile up to date.

As a matter of operations SampleStream LLC will recruit respondents for surveys on third-party sites who in turn, gather various types of information ("Survey Information"). SampleStream will recruit respondents from our affiliate sites via a bid process that only after accepted will ask respondents to take surveys which ask questions about interests, needs, and attitudes.

SampleStream will only pay affiliates according to an accepted bid that clearly states the terms of the bid and the amount SampleStream LLC will pay per respondent. SampleStream only pays affiliates when a respondent fully completes a survey. Any situation where the respondent does not fully complete a survey will not be paid. E.g., respondent terminates before end of survey, respondent clicks through invitation but abandons survey. SampleStream has up to 45 days after the close of a survey to pay associated commissions

Personal and Demographic information
Respondents recruited through the SampleStream LLC network may be asked for Personal and Demographic Information in order to pre-qualify members or households for surveys that target specific groups. We also use this information to ensure that our data accurately represent a website population as a whole. SampleStream LLC uses Personal Information and Demographic Information solely in the conduct of its sample-research business. Personal Information or Demographic Information may be combined with information collected about respondents by SampleStream LLC or third parties with their express permission, with information that is collected from public records, or with information that SampleStream LLC may acquire from third parties that have a legal right to provide such information to SampleStream LLC. We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
