The Survey Process From time to time, registered members will receive emails from inviting them to participate in a survey currently being conducted. Surveys are conducted for the benefit of A. J. Baron Communications and its clients who have requested online research for a particular topic, product or service within a particular demographic segment or segments of the population. Since many clients will require their surveys to focus on specific demographic groups, not all registered panelists will be invited to participate in every survey and not all respondents to an email survey invitation will be allowed to complete each survey. Invitations to participate in surveys will be sent out based upon the demographic criteria provided by members during the registration process. Registered panelists who agree to participate in a survey for which they have received an email invitation may access the survey by clicking on the link provided in the email invitation. The respondent member will then be linked to a server containing a series of screening questions designed to ensure that a representative population of members meeting the client's survey criteria are included in the survey process. The screening questions are not a part of the actual survey. The number of screening questions asked prior to the start of each survey will be limited in number but will vary by survey. Unless a particular survey has already received a sufficient number of responses or has otherwise been closed, those respondents that answer all the screen questions and meet all of the client requirements for the survey will be linked to the survey. Those panelists who then complete the survey and whose completed survey results are validated by A. J. Baron Communications will be entitled to be entered into that month's drawing for a $50 gift card. A. J. Baron Communications does not compensate members for answering screening questions, or for partially completed survey responses. A. J. Baron Communications only receives compensation from its survey clients for completed and validated survey responses. Should a particular survey receive a sufficient number of responses prior to your completion of  such survey, that survey may be closed to further participation. A. J. Baron Communications reserves the right to close a survey at any time.

Monthly Drawings offers registered panelists, in exchange for completed and validated surveys, entry into a monthly drawing for the month a completed, validated survey is submitted by the panelist. Registered panelists may earn one entry per completed, validated survey. However, if the registered panelist qualifies for and completes multiple, unique surveys in a given month, the registered panelist will earn that number of entries into the monthly drawing (e.g., the registered panelist completes 4 unique surveys, he or she will earn 4 entrees into the monthly drawing once survey responses are verified and validated by A. J. Baron Communications). Registered panelists may only complete a new survey once. Any attempts to circumvent this rule will result in the registered panelist's account being de-activated and removed from the database. The registered panelist will also be permanently banned from future participation in surveys. A. J. Baron Communications research and that of our clients depends on honest, forthright, complete and UNIQUE survey responses in order to yield useful, actionable, impactful data.

Member Privacy The privacy of our registered panelists and the confidentiality of the personal information they provide us are A. J. Baron Communication's top priority. Personal information will never be included with the survey response information we provide to our clients without the panelist's consent, nor will we ever sell any of your personal information to any third party. Please refer to our Privacy Policy for further details on the steps we take to ensure your privacy.
