3. Registration and Participation
By participating in a Research Project, you are registering as a participant. Registration requires that you receive occasional emails pertaining to the Research that you are participating in.

As part of the Research, Tetra Insights may capture or record your name, image, likeness, performance, voice, personal characteristics, statements, testimonials, activities, other indicia or biographical information (collectively, “Likeness”), whether in the form of audio, video, photography, or another medium (“Recording”).
All Feedback and Recordings will be owned exclusively by Tetra Insights. You agree that Tetra Insights and its clients may use your Feedback and Recordings for any lawful purpose whatsoever, including without limitation research, development, and commercialization of technology, products, and services, without any further obligation to you of any kind other than the incentive that may be applicable to the particular Research Project, if applicable.
You hereby grant Tetra Insights all right, title and interest in and to the Feedback and the Records, including without limitation, any copyright (including moral rights), and waive any and all rights and claims of any kind that you may have with respect to the Feedback and the Recordings, and Tetra Insights’ and its clients’ use of the same.

You understand that you will not receive any payment or compensation of any kind for use of the Feedback or Recordings except as specifically stated herein.
The probability and magnitude of harm or discomfort anticipated in the Research are not greater in and of themselves than those ordinarily using a computer or smartphone in daily life or during the performance of routine psychological examinations or tests. Any fatigue related to using a computer or smartphone device can be relieved by taking a break. The Research does not involve greater than minimal risk, and children and other protected populations will not be enrolled as participants. The nature of the questions may be perceived as personal. You are not obligated to answer all of the questions. If you feel uncomfortable in any way, you can stop any Research interview at any point.
On an individual study basis, incentives to participants may be provided in exchange for completed and validated surveys and research exercises. Incentives will be earned once a response is verified as eligible, accurate, and honest.
The incentive earned for each completed and validated research exercise will vary based upon the nature and length of the survey. By registering and participating in surveys, you agree that Tetra Insights may contact you to conduct a brief validation of your eligibility and responses as necessary. Tetra Insights may require additional validation procedures to certify your eligibility and qualification as a research exercise participant.
All terms and conditions regarding your ability to receive incentives for participation in surveys and payments to you may be changed or modified at any time with or without notice at the sole discretion of Tetra Insights. Respondents are responsible for any taxes due as a result of payments they receive for participating in a research study. We are required by law to issue an IRS Form 1099 to any participant who is paid $600.00 or more annually for participation in research studies.
You hereby agree, when requested, to provide all information necessary for Tetra Insights to comply with tax reporting requirements.
Guaranteed incentives will be referenced at the beginning of any survey ore research exercise. These will be awarded after responses and contact information have been verified. All responses must be honest and accurate. Any information that is deemed misleading or untrue can result in a disqualification. Certain surveys or studies will have an incentive limit, and once reached, the study will be closed. It is possible a participant will inadvertently complete a study when the incentive is no longer valid. We will remedy such situations on a case-by-case basis.
Incentives may also include the inclusion in a drawing for a reward. In this case, once a research study is completed (determined at the discretion of Tetra Insights), all eligible participants will be entered for a random selection. This selection may be done digitally or physically within 90 days of the completion of the research study. For certain studies, the quality of responses or referrals to additional responses may increase the number of opportunities a participant has to win a drawing. These terms will be mentioned during the course of a research study.
