Anyone have any information on the Samsung Insights Program for the Galaxy S10 models? I sent them an email a week ago requesting to be invited to the program and they sent me a short survey to complete. In the past (I have never been selected) it asked a lot of questions about how I use my phone and what features I like etc... This time it just asked a few questions such as what phone I currently use and contact information.
PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THROUGH THE PROGRAM TERMS & CONDITIONS
Samsung Device Insights Participant Agreement (the "Agreement")
PARTICIPANT AGREEMENT TERMS & CONDITIONS
Program: Participant agrees to take part in the Samsung Device Insights program (the "Program") by allowing Samsung Electronics America, Inc. and its affiliates ("Samsung") to access and retrieve specified categories of data from Participant's use of a Samsung device (the "Device") as Participant's "Primary Device" (as described below) to better understand usability, performance and other technical aspects of the Device ("Program Analysis"). The duration of the Program is one calendar year from the date of Participant's enrollment in the Program. If Participant agrees to complete all Program requirements as set forth in the Agreement, Samsung will give each Participant the opportunity to purchase one (1) Device at a discounted price from the https://www.samsung.com/us/ site (see DISCOUNT, below). By participating in the Program as set forth above, I agree to the terms set out in this Agreement.
Application & Use of Device: As a condition to participating in the Program, Samsung will access certain data (as set forth in the Samsung Device Insights Program Privacy Notice) through the use of the Samsung Device Insights application (the "Application") that is pre-installed on Participant's Device. In the event that Participant transfers the Device to another person during the term of the Program, Participant must contact Samsung to receive instruction on deactivating and removing the Application from the Device, allowing the Device to be factory-reset to its original software configuration, in order to remove all personal data from the Device. Participant may not transfer the Device to another person without removing the Application. Information collected through the Application will allow Samsung to gain insight into how customers use smart phones and allow Samsung to make improvements to products and services. As a part of the Program, Participant is required and hereby agrees to activate the pre-installed Application on the Device. Samsung will use KNOX Configure to simplify activation of the Application (see below for details).
At the conclusion of the Program, Samsung will notify Participant that the Program is complete and will provide Participant with information about how to deactivate the Application. After Participant deactivates the Application, Samsung will no longer obtain data from the Device for the purposes of operating the Program, as specified in these Terms.
Samsung is not liable for, nor will replace any, lost or stolen Devices. Participants are fully responsible for costs for repairs not covered under the standard manufacturer warranty, as such may then be in effect.
Primary Device: Participant agrees to use the Device provided under this Program as their Primary Device. To qualify as a Primary Device, the Device must be used regularly, with no break in daily usage lasting for more than two (2) weeks at any time during the term of the Program. In addition, the total daily use of the Primary Device must average a minimum of (i) seventy-eight (78) minutes, and (ii) access to the Device fifteen (15) times. Samsung will have sole and final authority to determine the status of a Device as a Primary Device.
In addition, Participant represents and affirms that Participant is 18 years old or older; Samsung reserves the right to terminate this Agreement for anyone who is not at least 18 years old.

You may not make the Application available over a network where it could be used by multiple computers or mobile devices at the same time. You may make one copy of the Application in Machine‑readable form for backup purposes only; Provided that the backup copy must include all copyright or other proprietary notices contained on the original.

You acknowledge that the Application is subject to export restrictions of various countries. You agree to comply with all applicable international and national laws that apply to the Application, including all the applicable export restriction laws and regulations.

In such event, the transfer must include all of the Application (including all component parts, upgrades, and this Agreement) and you may not retain any copies of the Application. The transfer may not be an indirect transfer, such as a consignment.
Participant Fees & Charges: The Application collects information from your Device and transmits it to Samsung servers at various times. Samsung attempts to make sure there is minimal device interruption during this process. While the amount of data being transmitted is relatively small, it could require some fees based on the type of plan you have with your service provider.
