ALPHADETAIL's Site and Services are created specifically to interact directly with a panel of select users who have a high level of therapeutic expertise and/or experience in certain healthcare areas. These interactive sessions between ALPHADETAIL and the panel members will occur via the Internet, and be presented in the form of interactive presentations concerning the healthcare products and services manufactured, distributed or offered by clients of ALPHADETAIL ("Clients"), with embedded market research questions for you to respond to (“Online Sessions”). Each Online Session will be identified as to its form, purpose and intent.
Online Sessions are designed to: (1) show panel members Client-generated product or service materials and/or seek their input and opinion regarding such product, service, and/or materials. We may use this input and these opinions to tailor subsequent content for each panel member based on his/her interests and needs. We also may provide such input and opinions only to our Clients who may use such information to shape future Online Sessions or for other purposes; and (2) gain an understanding of treatment practices, opinions about therapeutic choices, etc. We may use members' responses to tailor subsequent content, and match the needs of the ALPHADETAIL panel members with the needs of our Client sponsors for future events.
Your opportunity to participate in an Online Session will be sent to you by email. In some cases you may be required to complete the Online Session in order to receive an honorarium. In these cases you must complete the Online Session on or before the expiration date indicated therein in order to receive an honorarium. An Online Session will be considered completed only after you have answered all of the questions, submitted your answers in accordance with the instructions in the Online Session, and received a confirmation from us that your Online Session responses have been received. You agree that your participation in an Online Session is personal, and you will not assign or delegate any responsibilities for completing an Online Session to any other person or entity, including without limitation employees, agents, or family members.
ALPHADETAIL panel members may receive an honorarium from us in compensation for their time and/or for the feedback and opinions they provide when completing Online Sessions. Funding for the honoraria may be derived in whole or in part from payments we receive from the Clients whose products or services are the subjects of our Online Sessions. Prescription or any other use of the Client's product or service is Not a condition of participating in an Online Session or of receiving a compensatory honorarium. The form of the honorarium available for each Online Session will be specified in the terms and conditions of that Online Session. Honoraria, the value of which will be commensurate with our estimation of the fair market value of your time and expertise in responding to the market research questions in the Online Session, may include cash, non-cash items, and charitable donations on behalf of panel members. If you have registered with ALPHADETAIL as a healthcare professional, by accepting honoraria, you agree to use said honoraria to further your medical practice.
