Frequently asked questions

+Do I have to buy or subscribe to anything?

No. We conduct legitimate public opinion polls and surveys. You will never be asked to buy or subscribe to anything.

+How much time does a survey take?

Most surveys consist of 20 to 30 questions and should only take you about five to seven minutes to complete. Occasionally, there will be longer surveys or suveys with more complex questions, however, these surveys also carry a higher incentive, recognizing the time and effort required.

Data from our surveys are used by newspapers, television networks, marketers, news magazines, public affairs groups, scholars, and political campaigns to reveal and analyze public opinion on important social, political and commercial topics.

SurveyU's owner, Ypulse Inc., conducts and facilitates surveys for a diverse group of clients including MTV, VH1, and Macy's in order to help them better understand public views. Rest assured that your privacy is secure, and your responses do make a difference.

+Will the information I provide be confidential?

Yes. Your responses will be used only for statistical tabulations, such as “90% of students own an iPod®” or “60% percent of college women voted Democrat.” Your individual answers will never be revealed to anyone in a manner that reveals your identity. Please see our Privacy Policy for complete details.
