On Device Research Ltd
Terms and Conditions for Survey Respondents
These terms and conditions (this “Agreement”) governs the relationship between On Device Research limited (“ODR”, “we”, “our” or “us”), registered in England and Wales under company number 07329573, and you (“Respondent”, “you” or “your”). concerning any surveys and polls that are made available to you by us or on our behalf (each a “Survey”), including through our Curious Cat app or on a website that we make available (the app and those websites together are the “Sites”) or through a third-party site.
Provision of the Sites and Responding to Surveys
- ODR or its clients shall issue Respondents with a Survey. Respondents will be invited to complete the survey and may, at the discretion of ODR or the applicable client of ODR, receive an incentive in exchange for completing the Survey fully and in accordance with the requirements of the Survey and this Agreement (an “Incentive”). Incentives may include entry to a prize draw, a direct financial incentive or some other incentive which ODR deems appropriate. Any financial Incentives shall be paid by us to you via Paypal, Moneygram or such other method as we permit within a reasonable period of time after the completion of the relevant Survey (or, if different, at the time we specify for the relevant Incentive); you agree to provide to us upon request with details that will allow us to make any relevant payment through Paypal, Moneygram or such other method as we permit.
- ODR reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify, suspend, or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, a Survey or the Sites or any part thereof, or Respondent’s access to any of them, including where an Incentive has been offered.

- freeze Respondent’s account with ODR;

Limit on Liability
- We do not exclude our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
- The material contained in Surveys, displayed on our Sites or otherwise supplied to you is provided without any guarantees, conditions or warranties as to its accuracy. We do not warrant that the functions contained in the Sites or any materials or content contained therein will be uninterrupted or error free, that defects will be corrected, or that the Sites or the servers that deliver the Sites will be corrected, or that the Sites or those servers are made available free of viruses or other harmful components.
- We are not obliged to provide you with Surveys to participate in or contribute to, and we have the absolute right to exclude you from participation in any Survey.
- Our maximum liability to you in respect of any Survey is the particular Incentive that we agree to provide to you for your participation in that Survey. Only properly and fully completed Surveys that meet the requirements of this Agreement and the relevant Survey will qualify for such an Incentive. The Incentive will be subject to all availability and other qualifications that we notify to you at the time.
- We will not be liable to you if we are delayed in or prevented from complying with our obligations under this Agreement by anything you should do or should have done, or as a result of events or things that we cannot reasonably control.

Jurisdiction and Applicable Law

Severability and Waiver

ODR may assign this Agreement at any time to the successor in interest in connection with a merger, consolidation or for any corporate reorganisation of ODR, but will not do so in such a way as to reduce any guarantees you are given under this Agreement.
- This Agreement is intended to contain your entire agreement with us relating to Surveys and Sites; we believe it to be fair and reasonable. It replaces all earlier agreements and understandings with you relating to them, except for any fraud or fraudulent representation by either of us.
