Our services offer Participants the opportunity to take part in market research and express their opinions on a broad range of topics. Our clients and research partners depend on this information to make many decisions that affect the products and services in the global marketplace. Any data that we collect for a study is reported only in aggregate, and specific information regarding individuals is never viewed or published. All information gathered by SaySo/RFG is provided the highest level of security.
This is an opt-in program. Participants may choose to participate or not participate at their discretion.

By submitting information to the SaySo website or via the SaySo Offerwall or SaySo iFrame, Participants consent to such transfers taking place.
- What We Gather: In order to participate in surveys, Participants need to provide demographic and general consumer information as well as limited personal information. This information is used to help identify the types of studies most in line with a person’s buying habits, interests, or product usage.
- Personally Identifiable Information (PII):From time to time Participants may be asked to provide personally identifiable contact information (phone or mobile number, email address or physical mailing address). Sharing this information with RFG through the SaySo online properties is completely voluntary and optional. Opting to not share this information may prevent a Participant from participating in specific market research opportunities, but every effort will be made to offer that Participant alternate survey opportunities which do not require PII.

We do not collect or process sensitive data such as social security numbers.

Unless you provide consent, personally identifiable information that is shared with our Sponsors, Reward Partners, Recruitment Partners, Marketing Partners, Clients and other third parties will not be transmitted to further parties and will not be used in conjunction with sales and/or marketing communications or promotions.
- We do not share, sell, rent or trade personally identifiable information with third parties for their promotional purposes.

- In the event that RFG goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, Participant’s personally identifiable information will likely be among the assets transferred. Participants will be notified via e-mail or prominent notice on our website for thirty (30) days of any such change in ownership or control of personal information.
