You are contracting for services with Stickybeak.

Survey respondent prize draws
We run a monthly prize draw for the equivalent of NZ$200.
Survey respondents who who opted to be part of the prize draw (and provided contact details) are included.
Winners are notified by email and will be asked for their preferred method of payment.Winners who do not reply within seven days of being contacted will forfeit the prize and a new winner will be drawn.
Winners may have their first name, photo, and quotes used on the Stickybeak website.

If you would like your contact details removed from the prize draw, you can contact us directly at: info@stickybeak.co.

Poor response rates
Any survey in progress may be suspended or cancelled if Stickybeak determines it receives a lower response rate than average after it has been launched. Low response rates can indicate a problem with the design of your survey and we will ideally provide you with tips on how to update it to improve response rates.

Political Polling
Currently Stickybeak is not recommended for use as an official political polling platform. We work with partner companies for political research work when appropriate. If you’d like to discuss this you can contact us on support@stickybeak.co

You agree to pay the stated prices for the various services offered via the Stickybeak website. Where you are paying by credit card, you must be authorised to use that card, and the details you provide must be correct. Fees paid are non-refundable.

When you upgrade your account you will gain access to new functionality immediately and you will be charged the price difference between your current plan and the plan from which you are upgrading. This new subscription tier will be billed on a recurring basis until cancelled. There is no prorating for downgrades during a billing cycle.

Some Stickybeak services are provided on a subscription basis, and billed monthly or annually - this period is typically referred to as your “billing cycle”. Your subscription will automatically renew at the end of each billing cycle unless cancelled prior. If cancelled prior, your subscription will still continue until the end of your existing billing cycle.

Enterprise customers
Some customers will choose to enter into an “Enterprise” arrangement with Stickybeak. While the standard terms of use of the platform remain applicable to these customers they will instead be billed at a pre-arranged sum, detailed in a separate contract for services. This agreement will specify the length of agreement, cost to them, support hours to which they are entitled, and list all services provided under the enterprise arrangement.

Price changes
Stickybeak is permitted to alter prices on all services and offerings. Any changes will apply only to new subscriptions and prices accepted at the time of subscription purchase will remain until the end of the billing cycle. Changes to prices will be notified to users in advance of billing where relevant.

Please see our Privacy Policy.

Stickybeak will store and process data in accordance with industry standards. In the unlikely event of a security breach we will notify you within 72 hours of becoming aware of it.

The limits of our liability
Stickybeak and anyone connected to it, is not liable for any direct or indirect damage, loss, harm, or disadvantage resulting from the use of, reliance on, or in connection to, our services, outputs, or website.

Services are provided “as is”, and as such, neither Stickybeak, nor anyone connected to us, is liable or otherwise responsible for the reliability, accuracy, usefulness, or availability of any information transmitted or made available, and shall not be responsible or liable for any error or omissions in that information.

Results provided via our services are not intended to be a substitute for robust academic research. While we have confidence in our methodologies as a way to provide quick, affordable, indicative answers to questions, we do not have full control over the survey design, form of the questions asked, specification of the respondent sample, nor the interpretation of the results arising. For all of these reasons we accept no responsibility for results or actions arising from results - reliance is at your own risk.

We will do our best to keep the site up, but we are not responsible for website and service outages.

Stickybeak has no obligation to monitor or review content being published on our platform but we will undertake reasonable efforts to ensure that these Terms of Use are being complied with. This includes publicising these Terms prominently on the site at the sign-up stage, and acting promptly on notice of potential violation.

In the event of any award of liability, that amount is not to exceed the charges incurred by the user in the past 12 months’ use of the platform, or US$500, whichever is the smaller.

Survey timing
We understand that some of the work conducted on the Stickybeak platform will be time-dependent. Please leave plenty of time for your survey to run. We are not responsible for the speed at which your survey is answered. Surveys that do not complete when expected will still incur full charges. If you’d like to discuss any of this or a related issue please contact:support@stickybeak.co
