Persuasion Products and
Services for Modern Campaigns.
Using our software and support, campaigns, non-profits, and brands have been able to increase the effectiveness of their messaging by up to 500%.
Understand your target audience
Who do you need to persuade? Demographics alone tell you very little about what motivates your audience, your voters, or your customers. Grow Progress has built predictive models to identify the values and personality traits that motivate each person you need to reach.
Fuel your creative process
How do you know if your message resonates with the values and identity of your target audience? The Grow Progress platform enables teams to quickly test and optimize content within the context of the creative process. Grow Progress can also advise clients on how to build messages that work and can run customized tests that can bring analytics to the message creation process without ruining your flow.
Power Your Communications
with the Science of Persuasion.
Grow Progress gives campaigns, social good advocates, and companies the power to persuade more effectively. Our product enables customers to predict their audience’s personality traits so that they can get the right message to the right people.
Data That Works As Hard As You Do.
Right now, most campaigns create messages to appeal to different demographic groups based on age, gender, or race. But the key to persuading voters isn’t how they look — it’s how they think.
Predictive modeling has revolutionized how corporations message and advertise to audiences — and our algorithm brings that innovation directly to campaigns and progressive organizations.
That’s why Grow Progress improves efficacy by enabling campaigns to tailor their messages to match voters’ different values and personality traits.
Persuade audiences previously thought immovable with Grow Progress' personality-based segmentation.

2. Proprietary Rights and License
2.1 "Proprietary Information" means any information disclosed by one Party to the other, which, (i) if in written, graphic, machine readable, or other tangible form is marked "Confidential" or "Proprietary" or which, if disclosed orally or by demonstration, is identified at the time of disclosure as confidential; or (ii) by the nature of the circumstances surrounding the disclosure, ought in good faith to be treated as confidential. Proprietary information includes, but is not limited to, knowledge, data or information of a Party, its affiliated entities, customers and suppliers, including but not limited to information relating to products, processes, know-how, designs, formulas, methods, developmental or experimental work, improvements, discoveries, inventions, ideas, source and object codes, data, programs, other works of authorship, and plans for research and development.
2.2 Company shall own and retain all right, title and interest in and to (a) the Company Proprietary Information used by Company to deliver the Services, and all improvements, enhancements or modifications thereto, (b) any software, applications, inventions or other technology contained within the Work Product, and (c) all Proprietary Information related to any of the foregoing. Customer shall own all right, title and interest in and to the Proprietary Information supplied by the Customer to Company. "Work Product" means any products, information or results delivered pursuant to the Services.
2.3 Company grants Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, license to use the Work Product solely in relation to Customer's activities on behalf of the Customer's clients, and subject to the Purpose and the terms of this Agreement. Customer grants to Company a non-exclusive, limited, world-wide, fully-paid, royalty-free license to view, use and copy the Customer Proprietary Information (i) to the extent necessary to support the purposes of this Agreement; and (ii) for improving the Company Services.
2.4 Customer agrees that Company may feature the results of Work Product in a publicly available case study or list Customer's name (including the display of any Customer trademark) for the purpose of identifying the business relationship between the Parties on Company's website and in other marketing and advertising collateral.
3. Confidentiality and Non Solicitation
3.1 Each Party (each a “ Receiving Party”) agrees that it (i) shall use and reproduce the Proprietary Information of the other Party (the “ Disclosing Party”) only for purposes of exercising its rights and performing its obligations under this Agreement and only to the extent necessary for such purposes; (ii) shall restrict disclosure of such Proprietary Information to the Receiving Party’s employees, consultants, funders, or advisors who have a bona fide need to know for such purposes; and (iii) shall not disclose such Proprietary Information to any third party without the prior written approval of the Disclosing Party. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Receiving Party shall exercise at least the same degree of care used to restrict disclosure and use of its own information of like importance, but not less than reasonable care. All third Parties to whom the Receiving Party discloses Proprietary Information must be bound in writing by obligations of confidentiality and non-use at least as protective of such information as this Service Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, it shall not be a breach of this Service Agreement for the Receiving Party to disclose Proprietary Information if compelled to do so under law, in a judicial or other governmental investigation or proceeding, provided that, to the extent permitted by law, the Receiving Party has given the Disclosing Party prior notice and reasonable assistance to permit the Disclosing Party a reasonable opportunity to object to and/or limit the judicial or governmental requirement to disclosure.

3.3 The Receiving Party agrees that a breach of this Section 3 may result in immediate and irreparable harm to the Disclosing Party that money damages alone may be inadequate to compensate. Therefore, in the event of such a breach, the Disclosing Party will be entitled to seek equitable relief, including but not limited to a temporary restraining order, temporary injunction or permanent injunction without the posting of a bond or other security.

5.2. Unpaid amounts are subject to a finance charge of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is lower, plus all expenses of collection and may result in immediate termination of Service.

Customer acknowledges that Customer shall be responsible for all transaction taxes levied on Customer’s use of the Work Product or receipt of the Work Product, including without limitation any sales tax, use tax, excise tax, value added tax (VAT), goods and services tax (GST), consumption tax, business tax, service tax, product sales tax and similar taxes.

Grow Progress Platform Code of Conduct
(“Code of Conduct”)
Effective Date: September 3, 2020
1. Grow Progress Platform Standards.
Grow Progress, Inc. (“Grow Progress”) operates the Grow Progress Platform (“Platform”). Grow Progress grants access to the Platform for conducting Opinion Measurement.
These standards are incorporated by reference into all contracts between Grow Progress and Customers, except where the parties to a contract expressly agree on derogations or other terms. These standards do not create any rights or obligations for Grow Progress or any Customer except when incorporated into a particular contract by reference. When incorporated into a particular contract, these standards create rights and duties only for the contracting parties and no beneficiary rights for any third parties. If there are inconsistencies with this Code of Conduct and stricter provisions within another written agreement, the stricter provisions will control.
Capitalized terms used throughout this Code have the same meanings as the same terms defined in Grow Progress’s Terms and Conditions.
2. Ethical Standards.
Customers engaged with the Grow Progress Platform must respect the customs, rules, and practices that apply to our industry, some of which are described in this Code of Conduct.
Protection of Human Rights. Customers shall protect the human rights of its employees and comply with all Applicable Laws, as well as all ethical standards applicable in the countries in which they operate.Corruption and Bribery. Our Customers shall not engage in corruption, extortion, embezzlement, money laundering, or bribery.Child Labor and Forced Labor. Customers shall prohibit and refrain from child labor within their organizations.
3. Children and Minors.
Customers must obtain verifiable parental consent for the collection of any data collected from minors and children, as required by Applicable Laws. If Customers exclude minors from Opinion Measurements, they must ask about birth dates in neutral ways (e.g., “when is your birthday?”) and not in ways that could induce minors to overstate their age (e.g., “are you 18 or older?”). If a Customer knows a minor completed a survey, the Customer must confirm and verify parental consent in accordance with the Applicable Laws protecting such minor.
Minors cannot act as Customers on the Grow Progress Platform. Grow Progress contractually obligates Customers to comply with parental consent requirements under Applicable Law, and Grow Progress does not allow minors under the age of 13 to complete Opinion Measurements.
4. Data Privacy Law Compliance.
Customers are responsible for compliance with data privacy laws that apply to their collection and use of data via the Grow Progress Platform or Survey Question Platforms. Customers must determine whether they need to obtain consent under Applicable Laws (often, a conspicuous and easy-to-understand opt-in notice is sufficient and more appropriate where Respondents actively volunteer data).
Grow Progress collects data on behalf of Customers for purposes of performing Grow Progress’s contractual obligations. Customers’ instructions to Grow Progress for the processing of Personal Data shall comply with Data Protection Laws and Regulations.
Personally Identifiable Information (PII), as generally defined under data privacy laws in the United States, is prohibited within the Grow Progress Platform.
5. Data Residency or Localization.
Customers are responsible for compliance with data residency and localization laws that require certain categories of data collected from individuals in such jurisdictions must be processed on primary systems in such countries. This may require additional technical steps in the context of the data collection, but does not typically preclude use of the Grow Progress Platform, because data residency or localization laws do not entirely prohibit a transfer of redacted survey responses, aggregated data (statistics), or a copy of an individual record so long as the original data processing occurs locally within the jurisdiction. Grow Progress operates the Grow Progress Platform on servers in the United States and does not maintain local presences outside the United States to satisfy data residency or localization requirements.
6. Data Security.
Customers are responsible for compliance with applicable data security laws and must meet or exceed the following technical and organizational data protection measures that Grow Progress applies to its operation of the Grow Progress Platform:
Security Access Control: Implement suitable measures in order to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to data processing equipment and premises; limit access to employees and service providers with a legitimate need to know and subject to adequate written confidentiality and data security agreements.Transmission Control: Implement SSL for Internet transmissions and other measures to reduce the risk that data is read, copied, altered or deleted by unauthorized parties during the transmission thereof or during the transport of the data media.Data Handling: Have adequate security protection, procedures and protocols in place to ensure data is used, stored, maintained, protected, transferred, deleted or archived, as necessary and required by Applicable Laws.Data Access, Correction, and Deletion: Disclose, correct, delete, or redact data on request from data subjects, where required by Applicable Laws.
7. Restrictions Applicable to Customers.
Processing of PII is prohibited on the Grow Progress Platform. Customers shall not create custom questions on the Grow Progress Platform intended to derive answers containing PII or other sensitive data.
On the Grow Progress Platform, Customers shall not:
Share User IDs, passwords, and/or API keys with any unauthorized third party.Use survey farms, bots, or scrapers for any purpose.Ask or answer questions using vulgar, abusive, or inappropriate language or content.Fundraise, advertise, or make solicitations.Ask or answer leading questions that are intended to coach, guide, or bias specific responses.Use copyrights, trademarks, or any other intellectual property without proper ownership or license.Download, submit, or otherwise save sensitive content on the Grow Progress Platform. Sensitive content includes survey content of an offensive or especially personal nature.Ask or answer questions about sensitive content in ways that do not conform with industry guidelines or Applicable Laws.Ask or answer questions about sensitive financial information, including but not limited to, bank account and credit cards, and government-issued identification numbers.Ask minors to answer questions without obtaining parental consent, as defined under Applicable Laws.Solicit Respondents to take fraudulent or otherwise illegal surveys.
Failure to adhere to these restrictions shall be considered a material breach of the terms and conditions between Grow Progress and its Customers.
