Why do I have to verify my work email?

There are two types of audiences for studies on Respondent:

  • General Population
  • Industry Professional

In order to qualify for Industry Professional studies (those targeted towards participants in a specific set of industries with specific skills), participants are required to have a verified work email on their account.

Please note: You will still be able to participate in General Population studies without a work email.

Requirements

  • An email with a professional domain must be entered in the "Work Email" field on the third page of your account set up (Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, and other generic domains will not be accepted for verification purposes) 
  • The email must be verified by clicking the link in the verification email and logging into your account on Respondent directly from that link. 

Why is this required?

The Email provided is used for Respondent verification purposes only and helps Respondent to deliver participants who are who they say they are to researchers. 

This information will not be provided to any researcher without your consent. You can read more about Respondent's Data Security and Privacy Policy here.

Can I still participate in Studies?

    Hi I am a department head but we do not have our own emails at school.

    We use one email for all purposes as the email comes from the school..

    Please advise what I should do because if I need to participate in any studies the system wont aloow me to do so because my work email is not verirified.

     

    regards

    Hi, i do freelance work and is self employed - busy enough that I don't have to advertise with a webpage or domain registration to get a professional email address. Work from home only email address i have and use is my Gmail account. Very interested in your research and hope to be appart of it.

    Thanks

    Work email address is personal data protected by privacy laws including GDPR. It should be handled with care. Not only Respondent.io, some other online applications also require users to provide their work email addresses. We run the following review which gives suggestions as to what should and should-not do with the provided work email address: https://blog.usejournal.com/requesting-work-email-address-to-verify-employment-best-practices-3202118379ca Hope the admin would find it useful.

    This whole thing is bullshit. They say it’s locked for a month and even they can’t correct a mistake? What kind of fucking dipshit IT dept do you fools have that doesn’t allow for a correction for a MONTH. Meanwhile you hold my information hostage and won’t delete it either. Garbage.

    G Soujanya I completely agree on this topic Work email id verification but this is not from respondent but it is mandatory from their clients or researchers so I think the respondent representatives cannot do more to have this function away.  Indeed some sort of verification is necessary. I also don't have email ID of work as of now but I get project. Until the start in December 2019 I got two projects and completed it successfully, also received payments.

    Sthaheem896: First they will verify your projects after checking your screeners it takes time depends on the researcher. They will only contact the best fit for the project it absolutely depends on the client or researcher we cant demand we should be taken for the same.Update your profile and regularly check project you will get project invitations.

    eith Putzier: I understand the issue but please do update your profile and do regularly check project your will get the projects. If you don't have a work email Id still you can participate and earn that is not an issue but for certain specified project it wont be possible. This is not implemented by respondent but by the client or researcher.
