Monetize Your Online Data
Every day you hear about companies that are leveraging your data to make money. We want to do the same, but we tell you up front and we give you a nice incentive for your participation. Unlike other sites, we aren’t using this data to sell you anything or to show you ads. We use it to provide research and analysis on what people like you do on the internet, which helps create a better online experience for everyone.
How It Works
Installing SavvyConnect sends us information on where you go and what you do on the Internet. We aggregate that data to provide behavioral metrics, such as what TV shows people watch online, where people shop online, what people search for, and other similar insights.
What Do I Get?
Having SavvyConnect installed and active on your computer or mobile devices makes you part of the SavvyConnect panel in the SurveySavvy community. Our clients conduct additional research opportunities with the SavvyConnect panel, offering more paid incentives for qualified participants.
But What About Privacy?

Protecting all of our members' and non-members' privacy is our top priority but we encourage parents or guardians to supervise minors while surfing the web.

What are you tracking about me?
We are tracking simple usage statistics about your browsing habits online. You simply browse the internet the way you normally would and we track things like how long you spend on a webpage. This data is collected, synthesized, and stored in an aggregated format.
Is my privacy protected and who is looking at the information collected about me?
We take your privacy very seriously. With that in mind, all data SavvyConnect collects is referenced in an aggregated format and no personally identifiable data or content is provided to third parties.
You mention the word "aggregate," what does that mean?
In a nutshell, looking at what a single person does or thinks is too specific. We want to look at thousands of people and identify trends based on the bigger picture, such as the demographic breakdowns for who's visiting which websites and how often.
What if I want to participate but want to keep some things private?
Our PC/Mac software respects Private Browsing modes. While enabled, no data is collected from the current browsing session. However, please note that extensive use of the private browsing modes may affect your participation status within certain research studies.
For instructions on how to enable private browsing mode, select your browser from the dropdown:
Will this change my preferences and/or settings?

Help! I installed SavvyConnect but am receiving a notice stating my SavvyConnect is inactive or not currently sending data. What's going on?
For PC: if SavvyConnect is already installed and you have been actively browsing the internet using a supported browser, the most likely scenario is that a browser extension is disabled.
For IOS/Android: if SavvyConnect is already installed, there might be an issue with your internet or VPN connection.
