Terms and Conditions

Code of Conduct

The Tool Talk community was created to allow members the ability to have their voices and opinions heard by major companies. The goal of the community will always be to improve the various products and services our members purchase or use on a daily basis through the opinions provided per each survey or research activity. To remain an active member of the Tool Talk community, you agree to abide by all of the following rules:

  • Always provide honest answers. Providing false answers on a survey or in a research activity may lead to the forced forfeit of your reward points and/or the permanent removal of your Tool Talk account.
  • Take your time participating in our surveys or in our research activities. If you are not taking the appropriate time to properly read the question and all of the possible answers, this means you are not providing the most accurate answer possible. Doing so may lead to the forced forfeit of your Reward points and/or the permanent removal of your Tool Talk account.
  • Provide the most appropriate answers as possible in our surveys or in our research activities. Communications or survey responses that are deemed vulgar, harmful, insulting, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libelous, untrue, or misleading may lead to the forced forfeit of your reward points and/or the permanent removal of your Tool Talk account.
  • You may not access any service or area of this Site where you are not authorized or have the privilege to access.
  • You may not misrepresent your affiliation with any Tool Talk member, employee or entity, including framing, copying, or mimicking any portion of this Site to make it resemble that you have a personal or business relationship with Tool Talk or that we have endorsed you in any way.

  • You may not impersonate any individual or entity, including, without limitation, a Tool Talk employee, agent, or client, or other Tool Talk members.

Tool Talk reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify from the Rewards Program any member it finds to be tampering with this Site, the Rewards process, or the operation of the Rewards Program, or to be acting in violation of these Terms and Conditions or in a disruptive manner, and may void all Reward Points associated with such member.

Failure to comply with the Tool Talk Member Code of Conduct will result in the forced forfeiture of all Reward Points and the immediate termination of your membership account.

Rewards Program Modifications and Termination

Tool Talk may modify any of the Terms and Conditions governing the Rewards Program including, but not limited to: the methods by which Reward Points may be earned, the number of Reward Points required to redeem for a Reward, the value of Rewards offered, the identity of the vendors providing Rewards, and/or conditions under which Rewards may be forfeited at any time, with or without notice, even though these changes may affect a Participant's ability to redeem Reward Points already earned.

If Tool Talk does provide notice of changes, it may do so by email, regular mail, or by general posting on the Rewards web page or this Site.

The Rewards Program has no predetermined termination date and may continue until such time as Tool Talk decides to terminate the Rewards Program. Tool Talk may terminate the Rewards Program at any time, with or without notice. Those Participants with a sufficient number of eligible Reward Points for redemption will have thirty (30) days from the date the Rewards Program termination is announced to redeem any Reward Points remaining in their accounts or such Reward Points will be void.

Every effort has been made to ensure that the information in these Terms and Conditions and on the Rewards Page is accurate and complete.
