General conditions Bureau Fris with regard to recruitment respondents

We are happy to think along with you about the recruitment of respondents. Especially in the preliminary phase we like to give our input, so that together we can achieve a good result. You can request our expert advice at no cost in all respects regarding recruitment of respondents. 1. Bureau Fris communicates by telephone and e-mail and only makes promises by e-mail.

2. Recruitment from our own database.

3. Quotation
Prior to the project, Bureau Fris will, after discussing the application, draw up an offer and send it by pdf. The offer is valid until 1 month after the quotation date. The quotation is drawn up on the basis of the criteria discussed. Should it appear after the agreement that these criteria deviate from the criteria discussed in the quotation phase, the account manager will send an adjusted quotation. The rate per respondent starts at 75.00 p.p. (General Dutch Public). Should other criteria be asked whether it concerns a difficult target group, the rate may differ per respondent. 4. Accept project
A project is accepted by us after receiving the signed offer or confirmed in writing (by e-mail) by one of our employees. We can not make any commitments by phone.

5. We only take a selection definitively after we have received a final briefing. We can not make any commitments based on "provisional" criteria.

6. Recruiting time project
The desirable recruitment time for a project with respondents from our own database is 2 weeks after receiving the final screener (unless otherwise agreed in writing).

7. Project management fee, start-up costs, emergency costs, incentives and rates per respondent

Project management fee
These costs are charged if it concerns a project with
– A high degree of difficulty
– Long-term project (like online community of 1 month)
– Managing a project more time than regular

Start-up costs
When providing respondents at an external location (ie not at one of the offices of Bureau Fris) start-up costs are calculated from 150.00 per project. These costs are calculated because Bureau Fris spent extra time explaining the external location to its respondents.

Rush rate
This rate is calculated if a project goes through with speed. This means that Bureau Fris has less than 6 working days to start the project and to recruit the respondents.

Bureau Fris offers its respondents a minimum incentive of 30.00 per hour. The respondent will receive this on the account within 2 weeks at the latest. For the processing of the incentives a handling fee of 10% of the total amount will be charged. If the client himself wants to transfer the incentives to the respondents, this must also be on the account of the respondent within 2 weeks.

Rates per respondent
Bureau Fris provides customization and therefore uses 'from' prices per respondent. The minimum price per respondent is 7 5.00.

Cancel and changes to recruitment

1. Interim changes
If we have to call respondents as a result of a change in criteria, we will pass on the agreed price per respondent, for other changes we will charge administration costs (10.00 p.p.).

2. Cancellation costs
If we have to call respondents as a result of canceling a project, we will charge the agreed price per respondent for the respondents already recruited.

3. Respondent who does not comply
It is up to the client to send the respondent home if it appears that it is not satisfactory. Bureau Fris is not present during the interview to assess the respondent and therefore can not take the cost of the incentive on her.

4. If someone ultimately fails to meet the other criteria, but meets the basic criteria (demographically) and participates in the entire interview, we do not compensate the incentives. We can then accommodate you in the recruitment costs, this of course always in consultation.

5. If a respondent does not (fully) meet the predetermined criteria and the interview is terminated early, the incentive is not reimbursed to the respondent and not charged on. Unless the customer wishes otherwise. If this is the case, the incentive will be passed on.

6. Project postpone
If we have to call respondents as a result of the postponement of a project, we will pass on the agreed price per respondent. If we can move respondents to the new date, we will not pass on the recruitment costs of this respondent again. We will however charge administration costs of 10.00 per respondent. The new date is discussed in advance and if there is no new date the project will be canceled within 1 month.

7. Cancel within 48 hours
If we have to call respondents within 48 hours before the start of the study (on behalf of the client), we will compensate the respondent for the full reimbursement. We calculate this.
