Panel Rules



YourKynetec is a closed market research community.

In order to become a member of our panel and to participate in yourkynetec surveys, you can either apply for a membership here, or you can be invited by another panel member (this function might not be available all the time).

In the registration form, please note that you must enter an email address at which you can be reached regularly. Please also note that one registration per member is permitted in order to prevent a falsified sample. If we notice that you have registered under more than one email address (e.g. under a false name), you will no longer be a member of yourkynetec and your points will expire without any claims.

Once you have submitted the registration form, one of our community administrators will review your application, and will get in touch with you to continue the registration process.

However, we are not obliged to accept you as a member.



As a member, you are obliged to complete the surveys without the influence of third parties. Furthermore, the questionnaire is intended exclusively for you as a member, i.e. the content of the survey is intended only for you and not for third parties.

YourKynetec determines who is allowed to participate in which studies, since it is possible that you do not fit into the target group due to certain selection criteria. If the number of community members that could participate in the survey is too large, the choice which community members can participate in the survey will be done randomly.

Surveys usually include a short screening section before the actual interview starts. We are and will do our best to keep this section as short as possible.

Even if you might not qualify for the actual survey you are not wasting your time completing these questions, as answering these questions will help us to further improve our pre-survey respondent selection process (we will know in advance whether you qualify for a specific study or not – this will improve over time).

Points & Rewards

Points & Rewards

In return for participating in our surveys, you will receive points from us.

The amount of points you receive from us varies from study to study, depending on how long the survey is and how difficult the survey topic is to answer. You can then redeem these points in YourKynetec rewards.

You can currently choose between 3 different reward types:
  • E-Gift cards from different companies
  • Digital debit cards that you can use to pay for your purchases in online stores
You can redeem your rewards yourself on our rewards page. You can access the rewards page by either logging into your personal community page, or we automatically redirect you to your personal community page after completing each survey.

All of these rewards are distributed electronically and will automatically be sent to the email address stored in your member profile after you redeem your points.

For most surveys, the points that you have collected by completing the survey will automatically be added to your account. For some surveys this process is not automatized yet, and it might take a few days for the points to show up on your account balance. We are constantly working on this automatic update process and hope that all of our surveys will automatically update your community points.

If a member’s account is inactive for twenty-four (24) consecutive months, all points in that member’s account will be forfeited at that time, but the member’s account will remain open (with the ability to earn new points thereafter) unless the member’s account is otherwise terminated in accordance with these Terms. Under no circumstances will forfeited points be reinstated. Active members can remain active in YourKynetec by (i) receiving points via authorized means, (ii) redeeming points.
