Survey Participation Notes


RONIN surveys are opinion-based with no right or wrong answers, and there will be no sensitive information asked to you. All your answers will be reported anonymously, and data will be treated confidentially. In any case, if there is anything that you do not feel comfortable to answer, you can withhold information as you see fit. You can also withdraw your consent to take part at any time during the process. 

Data will be treated confidentially. All information provided will not be passed on to third parties and your answers won’t be linked to your name or your organisation. We conduct all studies in accordance with the MRS Code of Conduct. Please visit for more information.

Please provide your email address to take part in RONIN surveys. Your name and email address will only be used to send you the survey link and the reward for completing this survey. In case you don't receive the survey in your inbox, please kindly check the junk/spam folder or contact us, quoting your reference number.

Before a survey starts, we will ask you a few quick questions to confirm your professional profile and experience, to make sure the survey is relevant to you.

RONIN survey rewards will be paid for fully completed surveys / research interviews.

For online Quantitative surveys, on completion, you will be redirected to the RONIN Rewards website. Please click “next” and you will be redirected momentarily.

If you experience any issues setting up your Rewards account, our Rewards team ([email protected]) will be in touch within 14 working days of completion to set up your RONIN Rewards account manually. 

For Qualitative studies and telephone studies, our Rewards team ([email protected]) will be in touch within 14 working days of completion to set up your RONIN Rewards account manually. After receiving their emails, please make sure to log into the account and select the reward preference, so that the RONIN Rewards team can make the payments accordingly as soon as this project is fully closed. 

The rewards can be redeemed via PayPal, Amazon voucher, or donated to a charity supported by RONIN (British Red Cross and UNICEF). Different reward options are available for different countries, please see below table for more details. For countries / regions where local Amazon vouchers are not available, you can choose to receive Amazon gift card from another country in a different currency (please contact us at [email protected]). 

Payments will be made at the end of the entire project subject to satisfactory quality checks. Fieldwork timeline differs for each project, but in most cases reward payments will be made within 4-8 weeks. 

RONIN International reserves the right to withhold awarding incentives to a participant if, in RONIN International’s judgement, (1) a respondent’s survey question responses are untruthful or invalid; (2) a survey was completed too quickly; (3) open text answers are nonsensical or copy-pasted; (4) insufficient attention was given in answering survey questions; or (5) there is any evidence that the survey was completed by the same participant multiple times.
