Services and Right to Use Services

Centiment can be hired to assist with any and all of the following services: questionnaire development, survey programming, data collection, and data analysis/interpretation (“The Services” or singularly, “the Service”). The Company also provides a project manager to assist with questions regarding the Service. Your dedicated project manager will test through all survey builds, whether programmed by the Researcher or Centiment. Unless Centiment is hired to program a survey project, you agree that Centiment is not responsible for any build or setup errors.

The Services are designed to provide clients with access to an online platform permitting a client to create surveys or request that the Company create surveys on the client’s behalf and to request that the Company create certain survey questions, solicit certain survey responses, and deliver a target number of such Survey responses and related data from a targeted audience. In short, Centiment introduces targeted respondents to a third-party survey tool as dictated by the Researcher via that tool’s survey URL. Centiment passes variables through the Survey to identify respondents that have entered and redirect them back to our platform with those same variables to account for who has completed the Survey in its entirety. All collected data is housed within the survey tool itself.

Centiment grants to client a nontransferable, nonexclusive, worldwide right to permit those individuals authorized by client or on client’s behalf, and who are client’s employees, agents or contractors, to access and use the services subject to the terms of these Terms of Use. Unless otherwise expressly authorized herein or in the services, you agree not to display, distribute, license, perform, publish, reproduce, duplicate, copy, create derivative works from, modify, sell, resell, exploit, transfer or transmit for any commercial purposes, any portion of the services, use of the services, or access to the services.

Payment for Services

You agree to pay to Centiment any fees for each Service you purchase or use, in accordance with the pricing and payment terms presented to you for that Service. Centiment will provide an invoice post-data collection, but may request an initial deposit at our sole discretion. Existing clients are required to pay any outstanding invoices within net 30 days from the date their invoice was delivered. New clients may be required to prepay ahead of services being rendered.

Centiment accepts credit card, ACH, and check payment. If you elect to pay Service fees by credit card, you represent and warrant that the credit card information that you provide is correct and you will promptly notify Centiment if any changes to the credit card information occur. Fees paid by you are non-refundable, except as provided in these Terms of Use or when required by law.

Proprietary Information from Researchers

We will keep confidential the subject and research goals of all Survey projects in addition to keeping confidential any and all proprietary information contained within the Survey, or as outlined in communications with the project manager.

You, as the Researcher, retain ownership of all of your intellectual property rights in your content. Centiment does not claim ownership over your content, the data we collect for you, or any data analysis/interpretation work. The Terms do not grant Centiment any rights or licenses to your content except for the limited rights needed for us to provide the Services, and as otherwise described in these Terms.

In order to provide Services to you, you hereby allow Centiment a worldwide, royalty free license to use, reproduce, distribute, modify, adapt, create derivative works, make publicly available, and otherwise exploit your content, but only as permitted by Centiment’s privacy policy. This limited license continues even after you stop using our Services, with respect to de-identified, aggregate data derived from your content and any residual backup copies of your content made in the ordinary course of Centiment’s business. This license also extends to any trusted third parties we work with to the extent necessary to provide the Services to you. If you provide Centiment with feedback about our Services, we may utilize your feedback without obligation to you.

Data Collection

Centiment connects Researchers and their third-party survey tools to anonymous survey panelists who have signed up for the panel to provide their feedback against closed-ended survey questions for quantitative studies. Because feedback and opinions can change, you agree to hold harmless Centiment for any decisions made based on the results of using our Services.

When respondents are onboarded, Centiment profiles them with the sole intention of connecting qualified respondents with the correct surveys. Centiment does not retain any data related to your survey; the data collected is retained by the third-party tool used to conduct the Survey and is subject to that tool’s security measures.

Researchers using Centiment’s Services may not collect personally identifiable information (“PII”) from our respondents. Your project manager will ask you to remove any questions requesting PII from your survey prior to collecting any data from paid respondents.

All data collected will be the sole property of the Researcher and will be delivered, at minimum, via an Excel output. These Terms do not grant Centiment any rights or licenses to your data or proprietary intellectual content, except for the limited rights needed for us to provide our Services and as otherwise described in these Terms.

Security

Centiment uses a technology called fingerprinting that combines IP address, device type, screen size, and cookies to ensure only unique panelists enter your Survey. Centiment maintains a fraud score on each respondent based on historical completions (completion time as a percentage of stated LOI + any flagged poor completes) and consistency in responding to demographic questions, then ban those that breach a certain level. Centiment also use invisible ReCaptcha to defend against bots.

Centiment does not store any project data once results have been delivered. Please note that, if the Researcher is using a third-party survey tool such as Qualtrics, Survey Monkey, Survey Gizmo, etc., then the third-party tool may store your data and is subject to each individual companies’ encryption/security set-up. 

Centiment uses TLS (transport layer security) for the security/encryption of all transmitted data. It may sometimes be referred to as SSL or HTTPS. As such, respondents do not encounter the less-secure HTTP links anywhere in Centiment’s data collection process with properly configured surveys.

Centiment only uses data centers present in the United States. All of Centiment’s servers are secured by firewalls and have DDoS preventive measures enabled.

Centiment is GDPR and CCPA-compliant. Any respondent or researcher can request to have their account closed and have all associated profile information deleted.
