Your privacy is important to YourSayPays. This privacy statement provides information about the personal information we collect, and the ways in which we use it.
When you join the panel you give your consent for YourSayPays to invite you to take part in YourSayPays surveys. You can withdraw your consent at any time by deactivating your account on the YourSayPays settings page. We need to process the information that you provide to us in order to provide you with an account on YourSayPays, which allows you to earn money for completing surveys.
What information do we collect?
When you join YourSayPays we will ask you for some information such as your name and email address so that we can invite you to take part in surveys. We will also ask for other information such as age, gender and your location. This information helps us to analyse results to show opinions by groups of people, for example people aged 18 to 24 years old compared to people aged 65 years and older. Without this additional information about you, we would be unable to use all the feedback we collect in a meaningful way.
We may also store your details if you e-mail us directly with a query or suggestion for improvement. There is also the option to include your mobile telephone number on your YourSayPays profile. This is only used to send survey invitations via text message, and will never be used for any marketing or sales purposes. We will never share this number with any third party. You can add and remove your phone number at any time in your profile section.
