YouGov Location Data Trial Panellist Terms and Conditions

  1. Terms of participation
    1. These terms & conditions (“Terms”) govern your participation in YouGov’s trial of the use of anonymised location data (“Trial”). Any capitalised expressions not defined in these Terms shall have the meaning given to them in our Terms and Conditions of Use.
    2. The location data we obtain from your participation in the Trial will be processed by YouGov in accordance with our Privacy Policy and in accordance with condition 2.1 below.  
    3. By clicking “Accept and Join” below, you are agreeing to participate in the Trial.  YouGov will provide a Credit with a value of 100 points if you share your location data in a calendar month.  In order to do so,  when prompted by the YouGov app:
      1. As an IOS user, you should click “accept location data sharing even when App is closed” (it is important that this location data is shared even when the YouGov app is closed); or
      2. As an Android user, you should click “allow” for the sharing of location data.

  1. Information shared with YouGov
    1. By participating in the Trial and following the location data sharing prompt referred to in condition 1.3 you will permit the sharing of anonymised location data from your device with YouGov. This data will be processed on our behalf by a third party provider. The third party provider will not be able to use the data for any purpose other than processing and returning cleaned data back to YouGov. The third party provider will delete the location data following completion of the Trial. YouGov will solely use the location data for the purposes of anonymised statistical analysis.

  1. Duration and Cancellation
    1. The Trial is intended to operate for a two month period but YouGov may choose to extend the Trial period. YouGov will notify you by email in this event. YouGov may choose to conclude the Trial at any time and will notify you of its decision to do so by email.  Upon the conclusion of the Trial the YouGov app will cease to collect your location data.  This will not affect in any way your membership of the YouGov Panel or participation in any other YouGov Activities.
    2. You may choose to cease your participation in the Trial at any time by ceasing the sharing of location data to the YouGov app through your device’s app settings.  If you choose to do so then you may not receive your Credit for the month in which you withdraw from the Trial.

  1. General
    1. All notices given by YouGov to you will be sent to your designated email address provided by you during the YouGov Registration Process described in our Terms and Conditions of Use.
    2. These Terms, our Terms and Conditions of Use, our Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy constitute the entire agreement between you and YouGov and supersedes any prior agreements, arrangements, statements and understandings between YouGov and you.
    3. A person who is not a party to these Terms shall have no right under these Terms. For the avoidance of doubt, any legislation in any relevant jurisdiction giving rights to third parties is hereby excluded.
    4. These Terms shall be governed by the laws of England and Wales and you agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
