Thank you for using SurveyHero. SurveyHero is a service provided by Switzerland-based company enuvo GmbH, later referred to as "SurveyHero", "enuvo", "we", "our" and similar.
These "General Terms and Conditions" (GTC) contain the terms and conditions under which SurveyHero and its affiliates provide their services to you and describe how the services may be accessed and used.
If you will be using the Services on behalf of an organization, you agree to these Terms on behalf of that organization and you represent that you have the authority to do so. In such case, "you" and "your" will refer to that organization.
Fees and Payments
Fees for Services
You agree to pay to SurveyHero any fees for each service you purchase or use, in accordance with the pricing and payment terms presented to you for that service. Where applicable, you will be billed using the billing method you select through the payment process in your account.
Some of our Services are billed on a subscription basis (we call these "Subscriptions"). This means that you will be billed in advance on a recurring, periodic basis (each period is called a "billing cycle"). Billing cycles are typically monthly or annual, depending on what subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription. Your Subscription will automatically renew at the end of each billing cycle unless you cancel auto-renewal within your account, or by contacting our customer support team. You may cancel auto-renewal on your Subscription at any time, in which case your Subscription will continue until the end of that billing cycle before terminating. You may cancel auto-renewal on your Subscription immediately after the Subscription starts if you do not want it to renew.
Unless otherwise stated, you are responsible for any taxes or duties associated with the sale of the Services, including any related penalties or interest (collectively "Taxes"). You will pay SurveyHero for the Services without any reduction for Taxes. If SurveyHero is obliged to collect or pay Taxes, the Taxes will be invoiced to you.
SurveyHero may change the fees charged for the Services at any time, provided that, for Services billed on a subscription basis, the change will become effective only at the end of the then-current billing cycle of your Subscription. SurveyHero will provide you with reasonable prior written notice of any change in fees to give you an opportunity to cancel your Subscription before the change becomes effective.
Right of Withdrawal
If you are a consumer, starting from the date your paid Subscription first starts, you have 14 days to exercise your right of withdrawal without cause, provided that you have not benefited from or started to use the Services before the end of that 14-day period. The consumer must notify our support team by email within the specified period. It is up to the consumer to prove that their notification was sent and received within deadline.
You are considered to have benefited from or started to use the Services if, starting from the moment of your paid upgrade, at least one survey has collected at least one new answer (meaning that you have shared your survey and collected new answers) or if you have used your newly acquired privileges to process or export your collected responses.
Any external costs that SurveyHero had to bear during the initial payment (e.g. credit card fees) will be deducted from the refund amount. Additionally, the cost of reimbursement as well as a proportionate handling fee may be charged to the consumer.
When using our Services, you may submit content such as your personal data, personal data of others, as well as many different types of content.
We understand that by using our Services, you are trusting us to treat your content appropriately. The protection and confidentiality of your data has always been very important to us. We have and will never sell your data to third parties.
We will treat your Content as confidential information and only use and disclose it in accordance with these Terms. However, we may disclose your Content when required by law or legal process, but only after SurveyHero, if permitted by law, uses commercially reasonable efforts to notify you to give you the opportunity to challenge the requirement to disclose.
We will store and process your Content in a manner consistent with industry security standards. SurveyHero has implemented appropriate technical, organizational, and administrative systems, policies, and procedures designed to help ensure the security, integrity, and confidentiality of your Content and to mitigate the risk of unauthorized access to or use of your Content. At reasonable intervals, SurveyHero tests and evaluates the effectiveness of these technical and organizational measures for ensuring the security of the processing.
By requesting the Services and agreeing to these Terms, you are providing us with instructions to process any personal data collected by you through the Service, on your behalf.
You shall ensure and hereby warrant and represent that you are entitled to transfer personal data to SurveyHero so that SurveyHero may lawfully process and transfer the personal data in accordance with these Terms. You shall ensure that relevant data subjects have been informed of, and have given their consent to, such use, processing, and transfer as required by all applicable data protection laws and have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality and legality of personal data processed by SurveyHero in the provision of the Services.
Where SurveyHero is processing personal data on your behalf, it will:
- only do so on your documented instructions and in accordance with applicable law, including with regard to transfers of personal data to a third country or an international organization, and the parties agree that these terms and the SurveyHero privacy policies constitute such documented instructions;
- ensure that all SurveyHero personnel involved in the processing of personal data have committed themselves to confidentiality;
- where applicable to you and where it is technically feasible, make available information necessary for you to demonstrate compliance with your obligations under Article 28 of the GDPR, where such information is held by SurveyHero and is not otherwise available to you through your account and user areas or on SurveyHero websites, provided that you provide SurveyHero with at least 14 days’ written notice of such an information request;
- promptly notify you of all requests received directly from a data subject in respect of that data subject's personal data submitted through the Services; and
- upon deletion by you, not retain personal data from within your account other than in order to comply with applicable laws and regulations and as may otherwise be kept in routine backup copies made for disaster recovery and business continuity purposes.
SurveyHero uses trusted partners in facilitating certain elements of our Services ("sub-processors"). By agreeing to these Terms, you provide a general authorization to SurveyHero to engage onward sub-processors, subject to compliance with the requirements set out here.
SurveyHero will be liable for the acts and omissions of its sub-processors to the same extent SurveyHero would be liable if performing the services of each of those sub-processors directly under these Terms, except as otherwise set forth in these Terms and SurveyHero ensures that all sub-processors on the sub-processor list are bound by contractual terms that are in all material respects no less onerous than those contained in these Terms.
Data Processing Agreement (DPA)
We offer our customers the opportunity to enter into a Data Processing Agreement with us for processing their personal data. This agreement complies with all requirements and regulations of the GDPR and nFADP.
You can preview the agreement here: Data Processing Agreement (DPA)
To sign and execute the agreement, simply visit the following page within your account: Sign and execute the DPA
If SurveyHero becomes aware of any unauthorized or unlawful access to, or acquisition, alteration, use, disclosure, or destruction of, personal data ("Security Incident"), SurveyHero will take reasonable steps to notify you without undue delay, but in any event within 72 hours of becoming aware of the Security Incident. SurveyHero will also reasonably cooperate with you with respect to any investigations relating to a Security Incident with preparing any required notices, and provide any other information reasonably requested by you in relation to any Security Incident, where such information is not already available to you in your account or online through updates provided by SurveyHero.
You Retain Ownership of Your Content
You retain ownership of all of your intellectual property rights in your Content. SurveyHero does not claim ownership over any of your Content. These Terms do not grant us any licenses or rights to your Content except for the limited rights needed for us to provide the Services, and as otherwise described in these Terms.
We may identify you (by name and logo) as a customer on our website and on other promotional materials.
The Services display content provided by others that is not owned by SurveyHero. Such content is the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available. Correspondingly, you are responsible for your own Content and you must ensure that you have all the rights and permissions needed to use that Content in connection with the Services. SurveyHero is not responsible for any actions you take with respect to your Content, including sharing it publicly. Please do not use content from the Services unless you have first obtained the permission of its owner or are otherwise authorized by law to do so.
You acknowledge that, in order to ensure compliance with legal obligations, SurveyHero may be required to review certain content submitted to the Services to determine whether it is illegal or whether it violates these Terms (such as when unlawful content is reported to us). We may also modify, prevent access to, delete, or refuse to display content that we believe violates the law or these Terms. However, SurveyHero otherwise has no obligation to monitor or review any content submitted to the Services.
Keep Your Password Secure
You are responsible for safeguarding your password and any other credentials used to access your personal SurveyHero account. You are responsible for any activity occurring in your account, whether you authorized that activity or not. If you become aware of any unauthorized access to your account, you should notify us immediately. Accounts may not be shared and may only be used by one individual per account.
Keep Your Details Accurate
SurveyHero occasionally sends notices to the email address registered with your account. You must keep your email address and, where applicable, your contact details and payment details associated with your account current and accurate. Accounts are controlled by the entity whose email address is registered with the account.
Remember to Backup
You are responsible for maintaining, protecting, and making backups of your Content. To the extent permitted by applicable law, SurveyHero will not be liable for any failure to store, for loss of or corruption of your Content.
If you are an individual, you may only use the Services if you have the power to form a contract with SurveyHero. If you do not have the power to form a contract, you may not use the Services. If you are not an individual, you warrant that you are validly formed and existing under the laws of your jurisdiction of formation, that you have full power and authority to enter into these Terms, and that you have duly authorized your agent to bind you to these Terms.
You represent and warrant that you will comply with all laws and regulations applicable to your use of the Services.
You are responsible for your conduct, Content, and communications with others while using the Services. You must comply with the following requirements when using the Services:
- You may not purchase, use, or access the Services for the purpose of building a competitive product or service or for any other competitive purposes.
- You may not misuse our Services by interfering with their normal operation or attempting to access them using a method other than through the interfaces and instructions that we provide.
- You may not circumvent or attempt to circumvent any limitations that SurveyHero imposes on your account (such as by opening up a new account to conduct a survey that we have closed for a Terms violation).
- Unless authorized by SurveyHero in writing, you may not probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of any SurveyHero system or network.
- Unless authorized by SurveyHero in writing, you may not use any manual or automated system or software to extract or scrape data from the websites or other interfaces through which we make our Services available.
- Unless permitted by applicable law, you may not deny others access to, or reverse engineer, the Services, or attempt to do so.
- You may not transmit any viruses, malware, or other types of malicious software, or links to such software, through the Services.
- You may not engage in abusive or excessive usage of the Services, which is usage significantly in excess of average usage patterns that adversely affects the speed, responsiveness, stability, availability, or functionality of the Services for other users. SurveyHero will endeavor to notify you of any abusive or excessive usage to provide you with an opportunity to reduce such usage to a level acceptable to SurveyHero.
- You may not use the Services to infringe the intellectual property rights of others, or to commit an unlawful activity.
- Unless authorized by SurveyHero in writing, you may not resell or lease the Services.
- You may not register accounts by "bots" or other automated methods.
Suspension and Termination of Services
You can terminate your account at any time from within your SurveyHero account. Such termination will result in the deactivation or disablement of your account and access to it, and the deletion of content you collected through use of the Services. Terminations are confirmed immediately, and you will not be charged again for any running subscription unless you purchase a new one. If you terminate a Subscription in the middle of a billing cycle, you will not receive a refund for any period of time you did not use in that billing cycle unless you are terminating these Terms for any of the following reasons: (a) we have materially breached these Terms and failed to cure that breach within 30 days after you have so notified us in writing; or (b) a refund is required by law.
SurveyHero may limit, suspend, or terminate the Services to you: (a) if you fail to comply with these Terms, (b) if you use the Services in a way that causes legal liability to us or disrupts others’ use of the Services; (c) if we are investigating suspected misconduct by you; or (d) if we receive an illegitimate chargeback request from a payment provider for Services we have already delivered to you. Also, if we limit, suspend, or terminate the Services you receive, we will endeavor to give you advance notice and an opportunity to export a copy of your Content from that Service. However, there may be time sensitive situations where SurveyHero may decide that we need to take immediate action without notice. SurveyHero will use commercially reasonable efforts to narrow the scope and duration of any limitation or suspension under this Section as is needed to resolve the issue that prompted such action. SurveyHero has no obligation to retain your Content upon termination of the applicable Service.
If SurveyHero stops providing the Services to you because you repeatedly or egregiously breach these Terms, SurveyHero may take measures to prevent the further use of the Services by you, including blocking your IP address.
Changes and Updates
Changes to Terms
SurveyHero may change these Terms at any time for a variety of reasons, such as to reflect changes in applicable law or updates to Services, and to account for new Services or functionality. The most current version will always be posted on the SurveyHero website. If an amendment is material, as determined in SurveyHero’s sole discretion, SurveyHero will notify you by email. Notice of amendments may also be posted to SurveyHero’s blog or upon your login to your account. Changes will be effective no sooner than the day they are publicly posted. For certain changes to become effective, applicable law may require SurveyHero to obtain your consent to such changes, or to provide you with sufficient advance notice of them. If you do not want to agree to any changes made to the terms for a Service, you should stop using that Service, because by continuing to use the Services you indicate your agreement to be bound by the updated terms.
Changes to Services
SurveyHero constantly changes and improves the Services. SurveyHero may add, alter, or remove functionality from a Service at any time without prior notice. SurveyHero may also limit, suspend, or discontinue a Service at its discretion. If SurveyHero discontinues a Service, we will give you reasonable advance notice to provide you with an opportunity to export a copy of your Content from that Service. SurveyHero may remove content from the Services at any time in our sole discretion, although we will endeavor to notify you before we do that if it materially impacts you and if practicable under the circumstances.
Downgrading your account plan may cause the loss of content, features, functionality, or capacity of your account.
Disclaimers and Limitations of Liability
While it is in SurveyHero’s interest to provide you with a great experience when using the Services, there are certain things we do not promise about them. We try to keep our online Services up, but they may be unavailable from time to time for various reasons. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN THESE TERMS AND TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE SERVICES AND ANY GUIDANCE OR RECOMMENDATIONS THEREIN ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND SurveyHero DOES NOT MAKE WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING THOSE OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OR ANY REPRESENTATIONS REGARDING AVAILABILITY, RELIABILITY, OR ACCURACY OF THE SERVICES.
Exclusion of Certain Liability
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, SurveyHero, ITS AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS, AND LICENSORS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR (A) ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, OR (B) LOSS OF USE, DATA, BUSINESS, REVENUES, OR PROFITS (IN EACH CASE WHETHER DIRECT OR INDIRECT), ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES AND THESE TERMS, AND WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, EVEN IF SurveyHero HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND EVEN IF A REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
Limitation of Liability
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF EACH OF SurveyHero, ITS AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS, AND LICENSORS ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES AND THESE TERMS WILL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO SurveyHero FOR USE OF THE SERVICES AT ISSUE DURING THE 12 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY.
We acknowledge that the laws of certain jurisdictions provide legal rights to consumers that may not be overridden by contract or waived by those consumers. If you are such a consumer, nothing in these Terms limits any of those consumer rights.
If you are a business, you will indemnify and hold harmless SurveyHero and its affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from all liabilities, damages, and costs (including settlement costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of a third-party claim regarding or in connection with your or your end users’ use of the Services or breach of these Terms, to the extent that such liabilities, damages and costs were caused by you or your end users.
Who you are contracting with
Unless otherwise specified in relation to a particular service, the Services are provided by, and you are contracting with, enuvo GmbH, Switzerland.
For any Service provided by enuvo, the following provisions will apply to any terms governing that Service:
- Contracting Entity. References to "SurveyHero", "we", "us", and "our" are references to enuvo GmbH, Switzerland.
- Governing Law. Those terms are governed by the laws of Switzerland.
- Jurisdiction. Except if prohibited by applicable law, each party submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in Switzerland.
These Terms (including the Additional Terms) constitute the entire agreement between you and SurveyHero, and they supersede any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, terms and conditions, written or oral concerning its subject matter. Any terms and conditions appearing on a purchase order or similar document issued by you do not apply to the Services, do not override or form a part of these Terms, and are void.
The use of the terms "includes", "including", "such as", and similar terms, will be deemed not to limit what else might be included.
A party’s failure or delay to enforce a provision under these Terms is not a waiver of its right to do so later.
To the extent any conflict exists, the Additional Terms prevail over this GTC with respect to the Services to which the Additional Terms apply.
If any provision of these Terms is determined to be unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, that provision will be severed, and the remainder of terms will remain in full effect.
