Get started today by requesting an invite and registering!

After I request an invitation how long will it take to hear back from you?

Since receiving a top ranking by Survey Police, we have been inundated with applicants, each of which must be processed and verified in order to preserve the integrity of our data. Due to the high volume of new member requests, it may take up to a few days and in some cases up to a week for us to get back to you. If you are unsure about the status of your membership request, there is no need to resubmit your information. Instead please visit the Contact Us page and enter any questions or concerns you may have.

If I request an invitation will I be guaranteed a spot on the Darwin’s Data panel?

Since receiving a top ranking by Survey Police, we have been inundated with applicants, each of which we must process and verify in order to preserve the integrity of our data. Your application will be placed in a queue and we will notify you if and when a spot becomes available based on the information you provided.

Why do you ask for my address if Darwin’s Data surveys are taken online?

We ask for your address during the invitation request process so that we can ensure we have a geographically representative sample. Specific identifying information such as your name, home address, etc. is for our internal use only, is treated as confidential and is never shared with third-parties.

Will I be asked to provide personal information through emails?

Darwin’s Data will never ask for any personal information through emails or any other “unsecure” form of communication. In addition, Darwin’s Data will never ask panel members for any type of payment information, such as bank account or credit card numbers, for participating in our surveys. The privacy and security of panel members are our top priorities!

Do you share my information with any third parties?

We do not sell, trade, or rent members’ personal identification information to others. All information provided is treated as confidential.

Do I have to participate in all the survey offers I receive?

No. You may participate in as few or as many surveys as you would like. If you do not participate in a survey for which you received an invitation, you may participate in the next. You will not be penalized for inactivity. However, the more surveys you complete, the more rewards you will earn.

How long do the surveys take to complete?

Each online survey takes approximately one (1) hour to complete. You may not stop and start mid-survey. You must complete the survey beginning to end in one sitting, so please make sure you have time to complete the entire survey before you start.

How often will I receive surveys?

You will receive surveys as often as we have a survey that fits your profile.

I have not received a survey in a while, am I still a member?

Upon completing your online profile you are an active member of Darwin’s Data and are eligible to complete additional surveys. If you have not received a survey in a while it simply means that we have not had a survey that matches your profile. As soon as a survey, that matches your profile, becomes available we will send you an email invitation to participate.

Are multiple accounts allowed?

No. Membership is restricted to one (1) account per person and you may only complete surveys assigned to your profile.

How do I change the email address or profile information I provided when I signed up?

To change your email address or profile information please complete the Profile Update form.

I followed the link to the survey and was told that the “session expired,” what happened?

If you receive this message after clicking on the survey link it means that the survey is closed and is no longer active. Our surveys are only available until we reach our targeted number of completed surveys. You are still eligible for future surveys so please watch for email invitations.

I’m having trouble viewing the video embedded in the survey.

If the video embedded in the survey is buffering it means that your bandwidth is a bit slow. If you wait a bit it might improve. If you are using Windows 8 and receive the following message, “video format or MIME type is not supported” you will need to update Flash (if you are using Firefox) or switch to Chrome or Internet Explorer.

I’m experiencing technical difficulties during the survey.
