TERMS OF USE

Effective date: August 21, 2020

These terms (the “Terms of Use”) govern your use of the website support@angusreidusa.com  and all applications owned or controlled by the Angus Reid Forum Inc. (the “Angus Reid Forum”), its subsidiaries and affiliates (together “we” or “us”) (collectively, the “Services”).

Please read the Terms of Use carefully before you start to use the Services. By using the Services, you accept and agree to be bound and abide by these Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy found at https://www.angusreidusa.com/en-us/Privacy-Policy incorporated herein by reference. If you do not agree to these Terms of Use or the Privacy Policy, you must not use or access the Services.

CHANGES TO THE TERMS OF USE

We may revise and update these Terms of Use from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them, and apply to all access to and use of the Services thereafter. Your continued use of the Services following the positing of revised Terms of Use means that you accept and agree to the changes.

REGISTRATION & ELIGIBILITY

To join the Angus Reid Forum USA, you must be at least 18 years of age and currently residing in America. You must first register and create an account with an email address and password on the website support@angusreidusa.com, complete a short registration form, and subsequently, confirm your email address.

At any time, you may update your email address and/or other registration information by logging into your account.

You may not register multiple times to the Angus Reid Forum USA with different accounts - only one account per member. You may not use a false or misleading name, address, or email address to activate or use an account or provide any false or misleading information.

The registered member is the only individual authorized to use his/her account. Any use of the account by individuals other than the member is considered unauthorized use and may be grounds for termination and forfeit of points.

Angus Reid Forum USA reserves the right to suspend or terminate membership if a member violates these rules or any other rules of membership.

REWARDS: POINTS & SWEEPSTAKES

The surveys you can expect to receive will be comprised of a combination of short "fun" surveys, and longer "paid" surveys.

The Angus Reid Forum USA will reward members for completing surveys in different ways. The longer, "paid" surveys you are invited to and complete will earn you points equivalent to dollars. All active members will obtain a points account in which they will be eligible to earn points from completing some of the surveys they are invited to participate in. Each time you complete a longer "paid" survey your account will be updated and credited. The number of points received for each survey may vary between the equivalent of $0 and $5, and will be announced prior to each survey.

When your account reaches the points equivalent to a minimum balance of $25 (or 2500 points), you can redeem your points (in $25 increments); your account will be debited and a gift card will be e-mailed to you in that amount. Redeeming points in amounts less than $25 is not permitted.

Points never expire as long as you continue to be an active member of the Angus Reid Forum USA and as long as the points program remains in effect. However, if you unsubscribe from the Angus Reid Forum, or if your membership is terminated, your points account will be closed and all points will be forfeited.

You are responsible for ensuring that your account balance is accurate and we will not be held liable for any errors or omissions concerning points balances. In the event of an error, we reserve the right to make adjustments to a member's points account.

Points may not be sold, transferred, pooled or assigned to or with any other person or account under any circumstances. Points have no monetary value and cannot be used for any purpose other than redeeming them.

We reserve the right to suspend, terminate, revalue or modify, without liability or the provision of advance notice to Angus Reid Forum USAmembers, all or part of the points value structure and offers.

TERMINATION

You may terminate your participation and account with the Angus Reid Forum USA  at any time by sending an email with the subject line "remove me" to support@angusreidusa.com, or by clicking unsubscribe in any email communications received from the Angus Reid Forum.

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to terminate or suspend any member's access to all or part of the community, including points earned. Termination could be the result of allowing your account to become inactive after not responding to any surveys in the last 6 months, or due to breach of the Terms listed. In any case of termination, all points will be forfeited.
