- Payments Made by Researchers to Us
- Payments Made by Researchers to Participants via the Service
- Payment Processors
- Cash Rewards and Payouts Received by Participants This section applies to Participants of the Service, including Researchers participating in studies as participants of other Researchers.
Payments may include, but not limited to, fees paid to us by researchers to obtain subscription plans, fees charged for paying participants via the Service in studies offering cash compensation, and fees charged for downloading participant data from sessions (together, "Fees").
Fees and other charges do not include federal, local, foreign, or similar transaction taxes ("Taxes") now or hereafter levied, all of which shall be your responsibility. If we are required to pay Taxes on your behalf, you shall be invoiced for such Taxes and shall reimburse us for such amounts as described herein.
Payments may also include the cash payouts transmitted on behalf of researchers to participants in studies offering cash rewards. This section applies to Researchers of the Service.
Fees. We charge a flat fee per participant reward (see https://www.findingfive.com/pricing or https://eu.findingfive.com/pricing for fee schedule). This fee is withheld from your account at the same time your session is launched, along with the actual reward amount. We reserve the right to change, modify, or add to our fees for any reason.
Deposits. You must make a deposit into your account and have the requisite funds before launching a study session with cash rewards. When a new study session is scheduled, a predetermined amount of funds, covering both the rewards and fees will be withheld from the researcher’s account immediately. Deposits do not earn any interest.
Payments to Participants. When a Participant completes all phases of a study and makes it to the final submission screen, they will automatically be approved for the cash reward (if any); Researchers are not required to approve participant work. Rejection of Participant work on the basis of quality is not permitted on our Service. You may decide to exclude certain Participants' data from analysis, but they still must be paid. You may terminate a research study at any time, but terminating a study does not resolve your obligation to pay Participants who have submitted studies for rewards.
Bonuses. Bonuses can be granted to participants who complete your studies. Fees are calculated per bonus.
Excess Balance and Refunds. If fewer Participants complete a study than the number of participants requested by you at session launch, the difference in the amount initially charged at the launch of a study session and the actual cost will be returned to your account balance within 24 hours. Excess funds in your account can be withdrawn by contacting our Researcher support team ([email protected]) and may be subject to processing fees.
Incomplete Participation. In the event of any technical issues preventing participants from successfully completing a study, including but not limited to participants using a non-preferred browser, study programming errors, computer crashes, or any other technical issues leading to participants losing connection to the study at any point during participation, you are entirely responsible for determining whether to offer partial payment to Participants who submit partial responses due to any technical issues. We will not be involved in resolving disputes between Researchers and Participants over claims of cash rewards in cases of incomplete participation.
Disputes. Should there be any disputes regarding cash rewards between you and Participants, you should make reasonable efforts to resolve these disputes through direct contact with participants.If a mutually agreeable solution is not possible, we may, but are not obligated to, assist in negotiating an acceptable agreement. If a mutually acceptable agreement cannot be reached within 30 days after our intervention has initiated, we reserve the right to make the final decision, which may require researchers to issue additional rewards to Participants. You agree to abide by such final decisions in all cases. Repeated and excessive disputes may lead to suspension of researcher accounts on the Service.
Act of God. In the case of situations beyond our control (e.g., natural disasters) that interfere with the processing of a cash reward transaction, We may, at any time, without liability, and in our sole discretion, stop or delay that transaction.
To collect and/or process Fees and rewards, we use third parties such as PayPal, Square, and other services to process payments (each a "Payment Processor"). The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the applicable Payment Processor in addition to this Agreement. We are not responsible for any errors made by the applicable Payment Processor. You agree to provide us accurate and complete information about you and your chosen Payment Method. You authorize us to share such information as well as transaction information with the Payment Processor. We reserve the right to correct any errors or mistakes that the Payment Processor makes even if it has already requested or received payment. You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use any credit card(s) or other payment means used to initiate any transaction.
Granting Rewards. For studies offering cash rewards, the reward amount is always automatically granted to Participants upon completion of the study.
Disputes over Rewards. All questions or concerns about rewards for participation in a study must be directed to the specific Researcher or research team responsible for the study. We will not moderate any disputes between Participants and Researchers regarding payment amount, processing, distribution, or any other payment related concerns.
Incomplete Participation. In the event of failing to complete a study due to technical issues, partial payment options are generally not available. In rare cases, the Researcher of the study may be able to offer you partial compensation. You will need to communicate with the researcher in cases of partial or incomplete participation. We will not be involved in directing individual Researcher policies about partial payment or in settling disputes over payment in cases of technical issues during the study.
Redeeming Rewards for Payouts. Current participation reward balance in your account can be redeemed as a single Payout, in the form of a PayPal transfer or various gift card options through the gift card vendor we use at the time. The redemption process will be subject to the terms and services of PayPal and/or the vendor that we use for distributing gift cards. You are solely responsible for providing accurate account and personal information as required by PayPal or third-party gift card vendors in order to receive the Payout.
Reward Expiration. Any Cash Rewards must be redeemed within 12 months after it is reflected on your account. A reward that has been granted to you more than 12 months ago will expire if left unredeemed. You will be alerted before any portion of your reward balance expires.
Payouts Fraud Prevention. You acknowledge that automatic fraud prevention algorithms used by us, PayPal, and/or our gift card vendors may flag your reward redemption request as fraudulent at any time. Fraudulent redemption requests will be stopped and terminated with no notice to you. If you believe your reward redemption request is incorrectly flagged as fraudulent, you can make an inquiry by emailing [email protected]
Undeliverable or Misdelivered Payouts. In the event of an undeliverable or misdelivered Payout due to inaccurate email address or other identifying information, the Payout will be forfeited.
Taxes. Cash rewards earned via study participation, in the form of either a PayPal transfer or gift card redemption, is generally considered income under tax laws. Paying federal, local, foreign or similar income taxes shall be your responsibility.
Act of God. In the case of situations beyond our control (e.g., natural disasters) that interfere with the processing of a reward redemption request, we may, at any time, without liability, and in our sole discretion, stop or delay all requests.
