6. General Conditions

1. Definitions

1.1 “Associated Surveys” means surveys conducted in South Africa that serves the same aims as those conducted by SAARF, that can add value to SAARF surveys, do not compete with any SAARF survey, do not duplicate any part of a SAARF survey and are conducted as far as is possible in South Africa by South Africans to support, develop skills and grow the local marketing research industry.

These surveys should share SAARF’s resolve to support BEE, be affordable and preferably be not for profit and in the public domain. They must be done in a transparent way, using commonly acceptable methodologies and analysis that are open to scrutiny by SAARF and its stakeholders and could be done under the auspices of SAARF if this is regarded as desirable by SAARF.

1.2 “Commercial Surveys” means any survey that is done with the purpose of being sold for profit.

1.3 "Data Integration" includes any data integration technique such as statistical fusion, multibasing, fusion on the fly, and any other technique in which data from different databases are combined or related in any way.

1.4 “Private Surveys” means surveys conducted or arranged by SAARF Stakeholders for their own use, are not sold to other parties, and do not compete with or duplicate any aspect of any SAARF survey. Private surveys are mostly conducted to gain further information on media audiences or specific products or brands.

1.5 “SAARF Surveys” means any of the surveys conducted by SAARF from time to time such as AMPS®, RAMS®, TAMS® and the SAARF Outdoor Measurement Survey (SOMS)

2. Policy Objectives with respect to integration of data from two SAARF surveys with each other

2.1 The main objective is to integrate data from one SAARF survey with another such as in the case of Branded AMPS with TAMS, thereby creating more value for SAARF stakeholders.

3. Policy Objectives with respect to integration of data from SAARF surveys with certain associated surveys

3.1 The objective is to allow survey data from certain associated surveys to be integrated with SAARF survey data to enable SAARF stakeholders to add additional value to industry surveys by adding facets that are currently not covered by SAARF.

4. Policy Objectives with respect to data integration of SAARF surveys with certain private surveys

4.1 The objective is to allow survey data from certain private surveys to be integrated with SAARF survey data to enable SAARF stakeholders to gain additional value from industry surveys by adding facets from SAARF surveys to their data or visa versa.

5. Policy Objectives with respect to data integration of SAARF surveys with commercial surveys

5.1 It is not SAARF’s policy to allow data from SAARF surveys to be integrated with commercial surveys. It is not a function of SAARF to support or promote commercial products as commercial products unlike SAARF products, are not accessible to all stakeholders. Commercial products are also normally not open to scrutiny and often contain “black box” elements.

5.2 It is not SAARF’s policy to allow data from commercial surveys to be integrated with SAARF surveys except where cost and other considerations make it necessary or desirable.

6. General Conditions

6.1 When allowing data from associated surveys to be integrated in any way with a SAARF survey, it must be the aim of SAARF to facilitate this in such a way that the resulting product is preferably in the public domain as SAARF’s main aim is to provide currencies to the industry. If this is not possible, SAARF must endeavour to make the resulting products as affordable and as widely available as possible.

6.2 Where a survey is classified as an associated survey by SAARF, SAARF must ensure that its stakeholders have a say in the content and form of the survey and that it is submitted to the necessary scrutiny where required.

6.3 Associated surveys are not funded by SAARF or its stakeholders.

6.4 SAARF could agree to allow the publication of results from an associated survey to be done under the auspices of SAARF if it is felt that it is in the interest of the industry.

6.5 It is unfortunately true that people might try to give credibility to their own surveys by having it associated with SAARF and its surveys. In allowing the integration of associated surveys and private surveys with SAARF data, SAARF must thus take due cognisance that this practice could possibly lead to the undermining of the central role of SAARF’s own surveys. It must therefore be SAARF’s stated objective to meet all legitimate needs of stakeholders first and only to resort to such data integrations where the necessary funding is not forthcoming or the specific need is not regarded as part of joint industry research and therefore not necessarily part of an industry currency.

6.6 It is not SAARF’s aim to use data integration to generate additional income. Rather it is to leverage the investment already made in SAARF’s surveys thereby adding value for stakeholders.

6.7 SAARF’s surveys are mainly behavioural surveys as past and present behaviour are the best predictors of future behaviour. However, these surveys do contain attitudinal, lifestyle and other features as required and agreed upon by SAARF stakeholders. These aspects can easily and cost effectively be expanded upon if required by stakeholders, but where funding is not forthcoming, it might be in the industry’s interest to allow integration of psychographic and/or other non-behavioural information from associated surveys with SAARF data.

6.8 In general, data integration must add value to the SAARF survey and not the other way round.
