Do respondents see the poll results?
No. Respondents do not have access to the poll results. Additionally, all respondents on the PickFu Panel agree to a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) before answering your poll. They are told to "Keep all information and assets confidential - do NOT record, copy, save, share or discuss these materials anywhere."
Who has access to view my poll results?
When you build your poll, there is a section where you can toggle your poll results to "public." In doing so, your poll results will be displayed in our poll gallery and may be used in our marketing material. If you wish to keep your results private, leave the toggle set to private.
Please note: If you share the URL of the poll results with anyone, they will then have access to the results.
The U.S. Patent Office requires that applied for appearance patents must be unpublished. If I run a poll, will it be recognized as a way of patent publicity?
Our position is that the poll would not constitute a public disclosure; however, PickFu cannot give legal advice, and you should seek your own legal counsel.
If I run a poll, is there any risk of leakage for my trademark and/or appearance patent?
PickFu cannot give legal advice, so we encourage you to seek your own legal counsel on this matter.
