Conditions of participation

The Footprints Panel is a market research portal operated by intervista AG (“intervista”, “we”, “our”, “us”). These conditions govern participation in the Panel, use of the Footprints Research App (the "App", the "Software") and the Project Web Site (the "Web Site").


As a member of the Footprints Panel, location data of your smartphone will be transmitted to intervista at regular intervals for research purposes and you have the opportunity to participate in market research activities, including mobile surveys.

To participate in the Footprints Panel, the app "Footprints Research" must be installed. The app requires access to location data and Bluetooth. You will be invited to short surveys via push notifications and email. In general, you will be informed about the expected duration of the survey and the reward.

Some surveys are aimed at members who are at a specific location or at members with specific characteristics, such as drivers, students or professionals. This means that not all members can participate in all surveys and therefore there is generally no entitlement to participate in certain surveys.

Participation in the panel is of course voluntary and can be terminated at any time. You can unsubscribe by email or simply uninstall the app (in which case you will receive two more emails informing you that no data has been sent for some time).

We reserve the right to terminate your participation at any time and without giving reasons if no data is transmitted for a longer period of time, if you have been inactive for a longer period of time or if you violate these conditions of participation.


Once you have installed the app and participated in the research project for one month, you will receive a bonus of 50 intervista bonus points credited directly to your account. You will then receive an additional 20 bonus points for each additional month in which you have installed the app. If we invite you to take part in a survey via the app, you will receive additional bonus points for each survey.

Only members who regularly submit data during a month will receive the reward provided for that month.
