Your happiness is key to us and we always strive to do our utmost to ensure your Toluna experience is enjoyable. Over the last year, as you may have noticed, we have been making quite a few changes. We are trying new things to create a better experience for you. With each new feature, we have eagerly awaited your feedback and taken it into to make sure ensure your satisfaction.
Thanks to this new approach, we are constantly identifying areas of improvement and will continue to do so during the upcoming months.
Starting today we are excited to announce a brand-new daily Toluna lottery! Drum roll please…
Who wants to be a Toluna Millionaire?
Yes! You read that right! We will be giving one lucky Influencer 1,000,000 Toluna points every single day!
How will this work?
- Simply continue to answer our surveys to collect sweepstake entries*
- The more entries you have, the more chances to win (if you would like to top up, you can also purchase extra sweepstake entries from our rewards centre)
- There is no limit to the number of sweepstakes entries you can collect.
This new method will allow us to reward our most active and loyal influencers on a daily basis.
How often will the winners be announced?
- The winners will be announced every work day
- Weekend winners will be announced on Monday along with the winner of that day
How can we be sure that only the most active influencers will be selected?
- Winners must have answered at least 1 survey in the 30 days preceding the draw
- Winners must be active in the community and have created content in the last 30 days (including but not limited to topics, polls or comments) – this allows more transparency as the winners will be users that are known in the community
- Users must have a profile picture
*Sweepstake entries are only valid during the month of the draw. This means that the tickets you win in June can only allow you to win in June. Entries expire at the end of each month so to qualify for the following month, you must have earned at least 1 ticket during said month.
Winners will be drawn randomly from all existing Toluna communities.
We hope you enjoy participating in this new sweepstakes, we can’t wait to hear more from you!
Keep Influencing Your World,
The Toluna Team
With the rise in personal information being hacked or stolen, it is more important than ever to keep your data safe.
At Toluna we take this very seriously and treat your data with the utmost care.
However, despite all our efforts, we can’t keep your data safe alone – we need your help! With this thought in mind, we have pulled together the top 5 tips for keeping your data safe.
1) Update your password on a regular basis by following these simple steps.
Please make sure your password is:
– at least 8 characters – at least 1 uppercase character (A-Z)
– at least 1 lowercase character (a-z) – at least 1 digit (0-9)
– at least 1 special character (including punctuation and spaces)
– no more than 3 identical characters in a row (e.g., 1111 not allowed)
– not identical to your email.
Please make sure your new passwords are unique (not something you use for other accounts) and only you know it; please do not share it with anyone
Update your Toluna password today.
2) Your password isn’t always as strong as you think!
Surprisingly you aren’t the only one to think of using “password” as a password, 12345678 is also not that hard to guess. Make sure you don’t use your name or birthday as a password either. Use uppercase, lowercase, numbers and if you can, add in special characters to create a strong secure password.
3) Don’t use the same password everywhere!
As tempting as it is to use the same password for everything, it also increases your chances of being hacked, and across multiple accounts too.
4) Check to see if your data has been compromised
Yes, this amazing (and free) service lets you check if your details have been compromised just by entering your email address. Visit https://haveibeenpwned.com today to find out.
5) Don’t send the King of Nigeria’s son any money…
And make sure you don’t open any attachments in his emails either. In fact, don’t open any emails, links or attachments from unknown sources.
Oh, and we almost forgot, that long-lost cousin who just needs your bank account details to wire you a fortune probably doesn’t exist.
Keep your data safe and keep Influencing Your World!
