Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, Glow has the right (though not the obligation) to, in Glow’s sole discretion (i) refuse or remove any Content that, in Glow’s reasonable opinion, violates any Glow policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (ii) terminate or deny access to and use of the Glow system to any individual or entity for any reason, in Glow’s sole discretion. Glow will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid in these circumstances.
If you wish to purchase any product or service made available through the Platform Service (“Purchase”), you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your Purchase including, without limitation, your credit card details, your billing address, your shipping information and your location. You represent and warrant that:
- You have the legal right to use any credit card(s) or other payment method(s) in connection with any Purchase; and that
- The information you supply to us is true, correct and complete. By submitting such information, you grant us the right to provide the information to third parties for purposes of facilitating the completion of Purchases.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order at any time for certain reasons including but not limited to: product or service availability, errors in the description or price of the product or service, an error in your order or other reasons. We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order if fraud or an unauthorised or illegal transaction is suspected.
2.2 Triggered Payments
Survey responses (“Survey Transactions”) captured on the Platform Service accrue as a unpaid charges (“Unpaid Usage”) on the User’s account at the time of consumption in order to reduce the payment frequency for the user. Survey Transactions continue to accrue until either the account billing threshold (“Billing Threshold”) is reached or the monthly subscription usage cycle (“Monthly Billing Cycle”) occurs – whichever happens first. The Monthly Billing Cycle commences on (or around) the date on which user’s subscription commences. When one of these events occurs an invoice is generated and, for accounts with credit cards associated with them, a credit card payment equal to the total services accrued is immediately triggered (“Triggered Payment”). The amount that is currently accrued on the account is visible to users by looking at the Upcoming Invoices tab in the Billing part of the Glow account menu.
2.3 Payment processing by Platform Service Type
There are several types of Platform Service (“Service Types”) that may be purchased. These are currently:
- Plan Subscriptions – Subject to a minimum subscription period of 1 calendar month, unless indicated separately at the time of Purchase. These are processed for Payment at the start of each Billing Cycle.
- Response Transactions – Survey responses (and associated settings) are indicated to have fees associated with their use. These include channels such as Glow’s integrated consumer panel. Where a user selects these channels or settings, the usage will accrue until the Billing Threshold is met or a new Billing Cycle commences, at which point a Payment will be triggered (account managed clients excepted).
- Research Support – Some Users may access paid Research Support services through the platform through their Plan. Research Support is charged to the account immediately the service has been delivered.
- Service Bundles – From time to time Glow makes Service Bundles available for Purchase via the platform. When purchased, the user’s account is credited with the balance displayed in the Service Bundle at the time of purchase.
- Publications – Glow hosts a store containing publications, some of which are available for purchase. Publication purchases are available to users with a credit card, and will be charged in full at the time of Purchase.
2.4 Credit Balance
If your Glow account receives a Credit, it will be visible in your Account > Billing section of the Glow Platform. This credit (“Credit Balance”) can be acquired in three ways:
- Through the purchase of a Service Bundle on the platform (or via your account manager)
- Through Plan Subscription credit applied to your account through a monthly billing cycle
- By a manual override initiated by our support team (in the case of refunds or rebates)
The following Service Types can be consumed by your account Credit Balance:
- Response Transactions
- Research Support
When these Service Types are consumed any existing Credit Balance will be debited before further charges are processed for payment. Credit Balance may not be transferred for other currencies or cash at any time.
2.5 Account Credit Rollover and Expiry
Glow will roll your Account Credit from one Billing Cycle to the next as long as your paid Plan is maintained continuously. We may, without refund or reimbursement, cancel some or all of the Credit Balance on your account immediately if:
- You are in breach of our Terms and Conditions
- You allow your paid Plan to lapse to a free plan (for example, if your Credit Card details are not kept up to date)
- You elect to downgrade your subscription to a free Plan
2.6 Service Pricing, Promotions and Availability
Glow reserves the right to change the price of Platform Services at any time before a purchase is made. Where possible we will contact you in advance of changes to changes in Platform Service pricing. We agree not to change the price for services for which service delivery has commenced, such as during Response Transaction data capture or Research Support provision. If we do elect to change our published pricing we will do so in such a manner that allows you to review updated Service Pricing before purchasing services.
The pricing charged for all Platform Services will be the current price published on the Glow platform at the time of purchase.
2.7 Payment & Refunds
By selecting a Purchase you agree to pay Glow the fees indicated for that service. Payments will be charged on a pre-pay basis, unless agreed separately, on the day of Purchase and will cover the use of that service as indicated at the point of purchase. Purchase fees are not refundable.
2.8 Subscription Purchases and Plans
Certain Purchases are subject to a minimum subscription term (“Billing Period”). The minimum subscription period is one calendar month, unless separately indicated at the time of Purchase.
Glow’s Platform Services offer differing levels of feature access (“Plans”). Glow reserves the right to add, remove and change the features that are available to users of different Plans at different times.
By selecting a Plan, or instructing us to modify, downgrade or upgrade your plan, you agree that:
- You will fully pay the Plan fees relating to the Billing Period (usually monthly or annually)
- You will not be eligible for refunds for partial Billing Periods, or for not using the Platform Services sufficiently during any Billing Period
- You will pay your outstanding balance for any other services that you have elected to use during any Billing Period, including (but not limited to) response services and support services.
Failure to settle your outstanding balance on your Glow account for any BIlling Period may result in:
- Your account being suspended or downgraded
- Data and Content stored on your account being made unavailable to you to access
- Permanent loss of information on and relating to your account
By adding the details of a Company or entity, you accept that the Company or entity in question will be liable and bound by law to settle outstanding balances relating to your usage of Platform Services and and other services that you may order from Glow from time to time. Glow reserves the right to pursue unpaid balances relating to your account through:

- You, personally, if acting independently
You can see the current balance of your Glow account, along with details about your plan through the ‘account’ menu in the Glow platform.
2.9 Automatic Renewal of Subscription Purchases
Unless you notify Glow before the end of the applicable Billing Period that you want to cancel or modify your subscription, your Plan or subscription will automatically renew for a further period. You authorise us to collect the then-applicable annual or monthly subscription fee for such Purchase (as well as any taxes) using any credit card or other payment mechanism we have on record for you.

It is provided to you on an anonymous basis when you request it to be captured from your audience with relation to Survey Content. Glow is under no obligation to provide Standard User Profiles to Glow users and may, at its absolute discretion, remove this Content from the Platform and Survey Response Data for any reason and at any time without notice.
5.2 Survey Content
Definition: The questions, images, user flow, logic and other copyrighted materials relating to the structure of surveys that are undertaken on the platform by Glow public users.
This Content belongs to the Glow Account by which it was created. If you created the Survey Content, you may use it freely for as long as you have a Glow account. If your account lapses, Glow may delete your Survey Content after 90 days. If you purchase or use other people’s Survey Content you agree not to copy, reverse engineer, misrepresent, sell or claim the content to be yours. If your Content contains abusive, pornographic, illicit data, malware, viruses, malware or any other content that Glow believes is in contravention to these terms we may remove it permanently and without warning without compensation.
5.3 Survey Response Data (“Response Transactions”)
Definition: The question responses, images, private messages and other data provided through the platform by Glow public users in the course of using Survey Content.
The data captured, analysed and stored in your Glow account falls under a separate pricing model from your Plan subscription. Response Transactions comprise a combination of responses captured:
- Using links sent to your own databases (“Self-Targeted”) databases
- Through Glow’s APIs with third party (“Panel”) response providers.
Every Response Transaction (Self-Targeted and Panel) captured in Glow is charged at a standard rate based on the type, length of survey and other configuration settings that are selected before capturing data. You can review the price for any response prior to capturing data on the Platform Service, and are asked to confirm before cost is incurred on your account. Data that is captured through Glow is billable as part of the Billing Cycle into which it falls. You can see current usage in the billing section of your account, using our support widget or by asking your Account Manager for a usage summary.

Glow offers options for exporting your Survey Transactions at any time (automated). You may export your data on demand but agree that, in cases where you have captured any data that is deemed ‘personal data’ that you will adhere to the privacy and data storage laws, guidelines and standards that apply to you. Glow accepts no responsibility for abuse or misuse of personal data relating to your account. If you purchase or use other people’s Survey Transactions you agree not to copy, reverse engineer, misrepresent, sell or claim the content to be yours without prior written permission to do so.
Glow takes no responsibility for the quality, implied opinions, statistics, or use of data that is captured through its platform. By using the platform you agree that Content provided by survey respondents is captured at your own risk.
5.3.2 Using Panels in Glow to capture Response Transactions (“Panel Integrations”)
Glow builds and maintains Panel Integrations with a number of third party panel providers to improve the value provided to users of its Platform Service. In some cases Glow provides a simple interface that enables users to target respondents based on the personal information help by these third party Panels.
Glow accepts no responsibility on behalf of our third party providers for any shortfall in the number of responses that are captured through its Platform Service. Our pricing is based on the number of responses (or partial responses or screen outs) that you receive. If you experience any difficulties in capturing responses through a Glow Panel please contact us through the Chat widget and our team will do their best to assist you with your issue.
When you use Glow’s Panel Integrations you agree that, unless you have express written permission from Glow to do so, you will not:
- Attempt to capture any personal information from a respondent to your survey, including name, email, phone number, address, social media profile or any other personally identifiable information (PII)
- Attempt to invite, advertise or encourage a survey respondent to any other service or platform during or after completion of the survey
- Insert links that take the respondent out of Glow’s survey experience
- Engineer or attempt to engineer any user experience bypasses that may result in Glow’s survey experience being interrupted or corrupted

Please contact your local office to discuss the sale of proprietary Published Content on Glow.
5.5 Other Intellectual Property

Deliberate and repeated failure to provide quality information in relation to any of our Services will result in possible restrictions of access to our Services.

Any users deemed in breach of this Term will be subject to a Fair Usage review process that may result in account restriction, removal and a ban from access to our Services, and your details may be passed to the relevant authorities if deemed appropriate.
Rewards may be offered by Glow, its users, charity partners and rewards partners at any time to you through the Services. When such rewards are made available to you Glow will act as the intermediary for such rewards.
