Opinodo Publisher agreement

This agreement is between Opinodo ApS, Nørrebrogade 56 D, 2200 Copenhagen N, CVR DK32339735, A Limited Liability Company based in Denmark (from here Opinodo) and the Publisher.

Rights to use the Opinodo system

Opinodo grants a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use the Opinodo System for the management of the Publisher’s online customer and other survey panel(s) (such panel, being a collection of information on private individuals with specific characteristics and qualifications used for customer and other surveys, a “Panel” and “panelists”) and to market and sell access to the Publisher’s Panels through the Opinodo System.
The Publisher undertakes not to use the Opindo System for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by this Agreement.

The Publisher’s panels

The Publisher shall incur any expenses deemed necessary for marketing or advertising the Publisher’s Panel(s) to their members and potential members for recruitment efforts.

The Publisher agrees to allow Opinodo to keep the panel as available for the execution of surveys.

The Publisher agrees to keep recruited panelists in the Opinodo System as long as the panelists wish to be a part of the Panel, but has the full rights to use the data of the panelists for other purposes if the Publisher wishes to do this.

From time to time, Opinodo may change the status of the Publisher’s panelists to not available for surveys due to any noted quality issues, survey conflict with the audience, or any other reasons deemed necessary to ensure best practices are in place for the utilization of the panel. This is to ensure quality of the Panel(s).

From time to time, Opinodo or any third party may execute surveys, tracking studies and other data capture methods providing greater detailed information on the panellist(s) utilizing the Publisher’s Panel(s), from which the result will include information on the relevant Panels’ demographics and other relevant characteristics and data with respect to the members thereof, however on an aggregate level. The parties agree that the results and data from such surveys may be used for the purposes of assessing the Publisher’s Panel(s) demographics etc. and that such data may be used by Opinodo, matched to other data and databases as well as shared with third parties, always, however, only to the extent permitted by applicable laws and regulations.

Remuneration

Opinodo determines, in its sole discretion, what the Basic Price shall be when marketing the Publisher’s Panel(s) towards purchaser of surveys within the Opinodo System on various markets and will register the Basic Price in the Opinodo System; where “Basic Price” means the price for conducting a basic survey on the relevant Panel.

Should Opinodo sell access to the panel the fee for a specific survey executed with the use of the Publisher’s Panel(s), as calculated by the Opinodo System on the basis of the Basic Price, is paid by the purchaser of the survey directly to Opinodo, whereby the Publisher shall be entitled to a remuneration from Opinodo, after deduction of incentive fees (and excluding VAT, if any). If the remuneration payable by Opinodo to the Publisher is subject to VAT, such applicable VAT is included in the aforementioned remuneration to the Publisher.

Remunerations will be calculated by the Opinodo System based on complete interviews (completes) with a “buy price” adjusted per country every 15th and 1st of any month. Any false completes (from speedy or fraudulent behavior from the panelists) will be deducted from the amount invoiceable.

Invoicing and payout to Publisher

Opinodo will every month create a self-bill invoice with the earned amount from the month. This will be the final statement for the earnings. This invoice will be made available 7 days after the end of every month.

Opinodo will show expected earnings and completes updated on a daily basis (updated every night). This is a tool for the Publisher to see estimated earnings, but not a tool to see finalized earnings.

Opinodo will automatically pay out the invoiceable amount sixty (60) days after the final statement of the earnings from a month has been made available.

Example: The earnings from January will be finalized as an self-bill invoice by February 7th. The payment will be made by April 7th.

It is the sole responsibility of the Publisher to supply Opinodo with a correct IBAN, Swift and bank name number in the backend of Opinodo in the “Information” tab under Bank info.

Payment will be done with local bank transfer (not international bank transfer) using Opinodo’s payment partner Paysera.com. This is an advantage for the Publisher since there are no international bank fees to be paid.

Opinodo will only pay out amounts larger than 60 €. If the Publisher has earned less than 60 €, the earned amount will be transferred to next month until the payment threshold has been reached and the payment will be made.

All earnings in Opinodo will be shown in euro (€) for any country.

Incentives administration

Panel members responding to a survey may be incentivised by way of so called “Incentives”. Any such Incentives earned by Panel members are and shall be valid and redeemable for a period of twenty-four (24) months after being earned and the Publisher shall ensure that this is, mutatis mutandis reflected in the terms for the participation in the Publisher’s Panel(s) by the members thereof and in all survey invitation.

The payment and handling of the incentives will be done by an external company, Cint AB, directly to the Panelist.

It is not possible for the Publisher to get incentives paid out directly. Incentives are solely reserved for panelists. Any incentives not claimed by panelists will belong to Cint AB.

Support

Opinodo offer as a part of our service the Publisher to give support to Panelists regarding questions over surveys and incentives payment through the email support@metroopinion.com.

Support for the Publisher will be done through the email support@opinodo.com. This is only for questions regarding the business relationship between Opinodo and the Publisher, not for questions from panelists or users.

Surveys

Upon the execution of a survey, the Panel Members chosen for the survey will receive an invitation to participate in such survey. Opinodo and it’s partner Cint AB undertakes to (i) ensure that any such invitation to participate in a survey does not contain any unethical elements or any material violating laws of US, Asia or North America, and (ii) use its reasonable efforts to monitor that the surveys executed on the Publisher’s Panel(s) do not contain any unethical elements or any material violating laws. Opinodo agrees, when uncertain of the permissibility of certain material contained in a survey, to contact the Publisher for its opinion before such survey is dispatched.

If any Panel Member responding to an invitation to participate in a survey at that time no longer qualifies for that specific survey or if that specific survey has been terminated, Opinodo may redirect such Panel Member (route such Panel Members response) to another survey at the time being executed within the Opinodo System.

Marketing tools

Opinodo offer the Publisher a set of marketing tool for the use of recruitment.

All marketing tools are build around the panel MetroOpinon.com and can be found inside Opinodo.com under “Panels”. These tools include:

The MetroOpinion.com link: A unique link that tracks any traffic sent to MetroOpinion.com to your account.
A popup script to place on your site to in an efficient way show a message to your visitors with the panel. You can find information on how to implement the script in the resources section of Opinodo.com.
Download emails: With this option you can download a .csv file of your recruited panelist and import it into your emailing system or CRM.
Create Panel: This option is for creating a new panel in a country. You can – if you wish – add a permission to be shown in the Privacy Policy for the panelist upon recruitment so you have legal rights to contact the panelist.
