As a Participant in any APS Survey, you will have the voluntary opportunity to participate in market research activities including online and mobile surveys, product tests, focus groups, and more.

These Terms are subject to change. For more information on how we use the data you provide, please see our Privacy Policy.

These APS Customer Research Panel Survey Terms & Conditions (these “Terms”) include a class action waiver and a waiver of jury trials and require binding arbitration on an individual basis to resolve disputes.

APPLICABILITY; AGREEMENT. These Terms govern and apply to all APS Surveys including any Survey website and/or mobile applications, participation in any Survey or related service that is offered, provided, hosted or administered by or through APS, and your eligibility for, and/or redemption of, rewards, incentives and prizes offered for certain actions and activities, including, but not limited to, successfully completing Surveys.  By registering for, accessing, using, and/or participating in any Survey, you hereby expressly agree to comply with and be bound by these Terms. By agreeing to become a Participant, you agree to receive invitations to participate in Surveys. Additionally, APS may provide Participants with the opportunity to communicate with other Participants or APS.

Your participation in any Survey, focus group, telephone or other research (“Research”) is based on your desire to share opinions and provide feedback. Such participation in the Research is voluntary for you, without control or direction of APS, and you shall exercise independent judgment and discretion while doing so.

ELIGIBILITY. Each Arizona Public Service Company (“APS”) Customer Research Panel Survey (the “Survey”) is open only to Participants. In order to be a “Participant” you must be: (i) a legal resident of the United States; (ii) 18 years of age or older; (iii) a current customer of APS; and (iv) selected by APS to participate in the Survey. Employees, officers, directors, or agents of APS, as well as same household members of any such employee, officer, director, or agent, are not eligible to participate. Your participation in any Survey and related services are only for personal, non-commercial use.

Each Participant is only allowed to create one Survey account and all of the feedback you give via the Survey must be your own. Each Participant is required to truthfully provide all information.  Each Participant will create his/her own account username and password. Participants are solely responsible for the security of their usernames and passwords and will be solely liable and responsible for any use, whether authorized or unauthorized, of their accounts. APS strongly recommends against the use of a social security number, financial account number or any other identification or account number, as a username or password. Please do not disclose your password to anyone else; you are responsible for keeping it safe. We will not be liable for any unauthorized use of your account, which includes unauthorized use of your email address, password and prize redemption.  Participant status is specific to the individual who registers for the Survey and is not transferrable.

SURVEY POINTS AND PRIZES. If you complete a Survey, you will receive between 100 and 500 points. The number of points you receive for each Survey will be specified in the Survey invitation. 100 points is equivalent to $1 in e-gift card rewards. Points are awarded “as is” with no warranty or guarantee, either express or implied by APS. Points are non-transferable and have no cash value.

Once 500 points have been accumulated, Participants may redeem them for an e-gift card of their choice from a selection of popular retailers. There is no maximum number of points that can be earned, but Participants must redeem their points once they accumulate 500. Points will be forfeited if they are not redeemed within ninety (90) days. Each e-gift card will be subject to separate terms and conditions for redemption of those gift cards, which terms and conditions will be stated upon selection. Participants can direct questions about the accumulation and redemption of points to CustomerPanelSupport@apsc.com.

The number of points given to a Participant for a Survey may be changed at any time, before, during, or after a Participant completes a Survey. Survey points will be credited to your account within one week after successfully completing a survey.

PRIVACY. In order to participate in a Survey, APS must collect demographic information from Participants such as, but not limited to name, email address, zip code, employment status, annual salary range, age, gender and ethnicity. Such demographic information will be aggregated and used to identify how APS can better serve its customers. Your individual personal information will not be shared outside of APS. In some instances, your personal information may be used to respond to your inquiries or concerns or to connect you to relevant APS programs or information. All data APS collects will be protected in accordance with APS’s Privacy Policy located at https://www.aps.com/en/Utility/Regulatory-and-Legal/Privacy-Policy

APS may change, restrict, modify, block access to, or terminate Participants’ access to Surveys at any time for any reason in its sole discretion.

If APS terminates your access to Surveys due to your breach or violation of these Terms: (i) you forfeit all rights, title and interest in and/or to all unredeemed rewards, incentives and/or prizes, effective immediately upon termination; (ii) your Participant status will immediately be cancelled; and (iii) your access to, participation in and use of the Surveys and related services will immediately cease.
