    got the email today. answered quite some questions and i finally got the privacy invasion thing up and running.

    go to www.screenwisetrends .com to sign up. it will install a Chrome extension that is constantly collecting your data. you will get an initial $5 gift card and then a gift card every 3 months, for at least 1 year while the extension is running.

    a few things to note:
    you need to have Chrome.
    it will collect information even if you are using incognito window.
    you can pause information collection by clicking the "Pause" button of the extension.
    people under 13 years are required to "Pause" information collection while browsing.

What we learn from you, and others like you, will help us improve Google products and services and make a better online experience for everyone.

    We do want to let you know that the rewards for participation have changed. You will now receive a gift when you sign up and download the Google Screenwise browser extension. Then you’ll get an additional gift every three months for staying with it.* It's our way of saying "Thank you." We hope that you will still be interested in joining the panel.

    Gift selections include:

    1. $5 Barnes & Noble Gift Card
    2. $5 Papa John's Gift Card
    3. $5 Rixty Card
    4. $5 Sephora Gift Card
    5. $5 Walmart Gift Card
    6. $5 Zappos.com Gift Card
    7. $25 Expedia Hotel Card

    Rewards

    Screenwise Trends panelists ("you") will receive a gift once you sign up and install the Google Chrome extension that allows you to take part in the study. The instructions for how to redeem your gift will be emailed to you within approximately 24 hours after you download the extension. When you receive the email, go to the Reward page URL and enter your phone number to receive a verification code via SMS text* message. This code will unlock the gift redemption page. If you do not have a phone number capable of receiving SMS text messages, you can choose to have the verification code sent via postal mail.* Only 1 code will be sent to each phone number, and a maximum of 2 codes will be sent to each postal address. If more members of the household participate and don’t have a unique way to receive the redemption code, they will NOT be given the initial incentive, but they will still be eligible for future incentives.

    After the initial incentive, KN will send you another gift every three months for at least one year (as long as the Panel is still running), as long as you are still actively participating in the panel and are in compliance with the Terms and Conditions. For example, if you downloaded and installed the Google Chrome extension on June 1st, You would receive a gift then, and then another gift on September 1st, and then on December 1st, and so on. You must be an active panelist during the entire three-month period to be eligible for the reward for that period. You will be notified via email when these rewards are available. Please note that You may choose a different gift card at each redemption time.

    Current gift choices:

    $5 Barnes and Noble Gift Card
    $5 Papa John's Gift Card
    $5 Rixty Card
    $5 Sephora Gift Card
    $5 Walmart Gift Card
    $5 Zappos.com Gift Card
    $25 Expedia Hotel Card
    $25 Grocery Savings Program Membership
    Child ID Kit
    Magazine Subscription
    After one year, the rewards will continue, but the gift choices may vary, until the Screenwise Trends panel ends, or until You decide to stop taking part in the program. See Terms and Conditions for more details.

    * Phone number and/or address information is not required for participation in the panel, only for initial gift redemption. This information will be collected by Google’s panel management partner, Knowledge Networks, and will be shared with their reward vendor, All Digital Rewards for the purpose of reward delivery and support. For additonal information see Knowledge Networks Privacy Policy here.

    For people going to sign up for multiple accounts: you can get 1 account per phone number (that is able to receive SMS message) and additional 2 accounts per household address. see terms 3.7 [screenwisepanel.com]. they do seem to allow multiple accounts per computer.


    member portal [screenwisepanel.com] (for downloading the extension again, redeeming reward, etc). log in with your google account used in initial sign-up

    That made the headlines a few weeks ago and I gotta say: a very "generous" program from the original "dont be evil" douchebags. Hmm think most bh'ers should pass ;) Lol

    All of you who are griping on Google should notice this isn't an official Google program and rather a 3rd party..

    Yeah I personally think they do.. I mean just when you first start google chrome you see how they pretty much already know everything such aas your login info for every site you go on before you ever even first type it into chrome... google is evil and they will rule the world even more than they do now

    If they are using Chrome to collect the data, then its a sure bet that its Google that is buy this data from Screenwise.

    This is smart on Google's part, let a third party catch any flack/privacy complaints for a collection/service fee paid to Screenwise.

    I am not a conspiracy theorist, but I can't help but think that this whole operation is definitely being bankrolled by Google. This is golden information, and with the economy the way it is, a LOT of people are going to sign up for this.

    Now WE have to come up with a way to get multiple payouts... :)
