Triaba Review

Triaba is a multicountry survey site rewarding survey participants with points which can be exchanged into real rewards. Nothing is really unique about Triaba as their panel is just another white-labelled version of Cint’s survey platform. Over a period of 10 weeks, we tested Triaba to check user experience, compensation level and how difficult it is to qualify for surveys and redeem rewards.

Andrew: Andrew is one of our reviewers who’s been with HuginX the longest. With a background in membership support at one of the largest survey companies, Andrew has a lot of inside knowledge of the Market Research industry and has helped us refine our reviewing criteria. When Andrew is not working with reviews, he likes to go hiking with his dog Charlie. 

Is Triaba a legit survey site?

While Triaba is an independently owned domain by a Norwegian company, the panel is hosted and managed by the Swedish market research provider Cint Group AB. We couldn’t find much information about Triaba, but Cint is a legit market research company listed on the Stockholm stock exchange. By working with communities such as Triaba, Cint is facilitating access to millions of survey-takers worldwide. Cint also runs its own panel sites such as SurveyRewardz and Points2Shop on the same platform.

Data Privacy: Is Cint or Triaba responsible?

Since the website and the panel platform are operated by two different companies, it can be confusing to understand which company is responsible for controlling your data. We had a look at the privacy policy to find out if Cint or Triaba is the data controller.

First of all, you’ll need to read two separate terms and privacy policies: One set of policies from Triaba and one set from Cint. Quite confusing for the user in other words.

triaba privacy policy

While Triaba’s privacy policy mentions Cint as their responsible partner for managing profiling and survey information, it’s not clear from their policy what entity is the data controller. Checking Cint’s privacy policy on the other hand, it states quite clearly that the panel owner (Triaba) is the data controller. Excerpt from Cint’s privacy policy:

“Cint’s Panel Owners and Partners who direct participants to surveys or other market research programs are Data Controllers who determine the purposes and means for processing Person Data. Cint will only process your Personal Data acting as a Data Processer, at the request of a Data Controller.”

We were surprised about this. We would have thought that Cint was the data controller, taking into account that they control all aspects of the survey platform such as where your data is stored, shared and managed.

Why is this important for you? If you have questions or concerns related to how your data is handled, it’s important to know which entity is responsible.  As an example, if you have questions related to how your personal data is shared or if you would like to delete your data, the website is obliged to inform you how to proceed with this under GDPR regulations. While Cint’s privacy policy seems “GDPR-compliant”, Triaba’s privacy policy is missing key points when it comes to how they are handling personal data.

How to get started

Registering on Triaba is straightforward and is open for everyone to take surveys as long as you meet the minimum age. The minimum age for taking a survey varies from country to country, generally from 14 to 18 years. Once you have confirmed your membership by clicking on the email invitation, you’ll be asked several profiling questions. These questions aim to pre-match you with survey opportunities tailored to your demographic profile.

By filling out your profile, you’ll increase your chances of qualifying for surveys and getting invitations to surveys that better match your profile. Our advice is, to be honest when submitting your profiling information, keeping in mind that this data will be matched with answers you’ll later when taking surveys. You could risk getting blacklisted if Cint discovers inconsistencies in your data.

What about the survey experience?

Triaba’s survey platform Cint is a so-called survey exchange which connects thousands of market research buyers with millions of survey takers. This means you’ll be exposed to a broad range of survey topics such as healthcare surveys, professional business surveys and surveys about your shopping habits.

Sometimes you’ll be matched with a really interesting survey which is spot-on in terms of your profile, while other times, you’ll get screened out without being able to complete the survey (and get paid). This is completely normal when it comes to surveying sites, and in our experience, Cint is quite average when it comes to being able to match you with surveys.

How much can you make on Triaba?

You won’t make hundreds of dollars per day taking surveys on Triaba, but you’ll be able to earn some extra money if you persistently take surveys on a regular basis. How much depends on your profile and how frequently you take surveys. You’ll earn from $0.50 to around $5.00 per survey, with most surveys paying closer to $0.50 on standard consumer topics.

Will anything prevent me from cashing out on Triaba?

If the company suspects that you are just providing gibberish answers, they have the right to dismiss your survey entries, and you could also be suspended from taking surveys entirely. You’re also only allowed to create one account, and survey sites have become quite advanced in detecting duplicates these days. Last, but not least – don’t try to be clever by filling out your profile with a false identity. When redeeming your payment you’ll be flagged if your PayPal profile is not matching with your profile on Triaba.

Disclosure – How we make money

We built HuginX around our core principles of openness, honesty and transparency. Your trust is of the utmost importance to us, which is why we’ll always be straight-up about how we review sites.

When it comes to running our website, we want to be entirely upfront about how we operate, how we make money, and how we keep the site a free resource for our millions of visitors. We don’t accept payment to provide positive reviews, and providers will never have a say in how we choose the best sites. Our aim is to put you, the reader, first and foremost at all times. 

A list of practices we never engage in:

  1. We will never accept money to review a product
  2. We will never accept money to change a product review
  3. We will never accept money to turn a blind eye to an issue or flaw
  4. We will never accept money to bias our research or investigations

So, how do we make money? We receive fees from some of the sites we refer subscribers to. These fees are also known as affiliate commissions. When you click on a link or a button that takes you to a provider’s website such as a survey site, we may receive compensation for having referred a new sign-up.

Referral fees are only negotiated after we’ve fully conducted our review, meaning that money plays no factor in the process. Referral fees do not impact our review ratings and recommendations.The compensation we receive may, however, influence how, where, and in what order products appear in our paid search comparison pages, which are separate from our editorial content. These contain ad listings, and can only be accessed via search engine advertisements.
