Survey Panel Group Scam or Spam?

Survey Panel Group (surveypanelgroup.com) APPEARS to be a paid survey site. However, if you look closely, you probably will realize that they are NOT a real market research paid survey site.They are more likely a paid offer site or an email harvesting site, and you might get spam emails, because:

1. Just by looking at their “How It Works” page (http://www.surveypanelgroup.com/howitworks.php):

“Survey Panel Group is designed to provide consumers with high quality offers in exchange for valuable market research information.”

Yes – you are provided/paid with those “high qualify offers” by giving your opinion.

2. Based on their Privacy Policy (http://www.surveypanelgroup.com/privacy.php?&lp=1&al=1):

How is User information used?

A. Information that you provide SurveyPanelGroup does not send unsolicited or “spam” e-mail. We use User information in a number of ways, including:

1) to send personalized, targeted information to the User in the form of e-mail messages and/or direct mail;
2) to send targeted advertising that allows us to provide our service at no or little cost to the Users;
3) to send promotions and coupons based on their interests;
4) to contact Users for feedback and surveys;
5) to monitor and improve its internal operations, as well as to ensure that it properly performs the services requested and bills properlywhere appropriate; and
6) to send Users other information about SurveyPanelGroup and/or its products.

When you register with SurveyPanelGroup, you may receive offers from us or our marketing partners. Our marketing partners may use this information to make offers to you in your areas of interest or other offers. Our marketing partners wishing to contact you either give their e-mail message to us and we deliver it to you, or we provide your contact information to them so they can deliver messages directly to you. It is solely at your discretion if you choose to provide additional personally identifiable information to a marketer by making a purchase, requesting additional
information, or communicating directly with the company or organization after using its website. We may also use outside companies to execute the marketing campaigns on our behalf or on behalf of some of our marketing partners.

We will share your e-mail name & other information that you give us that is necessary for these third parties to provide these services. These third parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purposes of providing these services.

Obviously Survey Panel Group is not a legitimate paid survey/market research company. The most important reason is that a legitimate market research company ALWAYS protects members privacy and will NOT send any kind of advertising, promotions and offers to survey panel member, and will NEVER share member’s personal information with ANY third partners.

The bottom line is Survey Panel Group is not a real paid survey site, but a paid offer site. I am not sure if they pay or not but I won’t recommend them since you probably will not receive any legitimate market research paid surveys, but paid offers and spams.
