Where do I login to take a survey?
If you have been asked to participate in an Online Survey, you should have been provided with a PSWD or a direct link. If you have only been given a PSWD, you can access your intended survey by going to the site and typing in your PSWD.

Why am I getting the message "The PSWD ##### has been used already. Please check the correct entry of the PSWD."
The PSWD you have received is unique and can only be used once. Surveys cannot be retaken or resumed after quitting or unexpectedly closing.
