Mediastats provides consumer and marketing information and insights to companies operating within the Media and Telecommunication industries. We have been a leader in media research for over 35 years. The Mediastats Panel Survey (MSPS) is a product launched by Mediastats to collect information regarding contemporary media usage patterns.
Panelists must be 18 years or older to participate in the Mediastats Panel Survey (MSPS). At this time, MSPS is only seeking panelists who speak Chinese, Filipino, Hindi, Indonesian, Korean, Japanese, Malay, Persian, Urdu and/or Vietnamese based in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax.
In order to become a panelist with MSPS, panelists must undergo a simple, 2-step verification process. Immediately after creating an account with MSPS, new panelists will be contacted by the panel via email to complete this process. Verification does not require panelists to share any sensitive information and will only relate to demographic data given at the time of signing up with MSPS.
MSPS is designed to collect data about modern media trends. Mediastats reserves the right to disqualify panelists submitting fraudulent logs. Fraudulent logs include, but are not limited to, excessive repeat logs, logs with conflicting time stamps, logs that do not reflect actual titles, and incomplete logs.
Panelists are accountable for their own logs. Although MSPS's data is checked regularly, it is not the responsibility of MSPS to alert panelists of fraudulent activity. MSPS reserves the right to cancel accounts that submit fraudulent logs at any time. Panelists will not be rewarded for fraudulent logs.
Panelists are rewarded $40 for each month they participate in MSPS. In order to become eligible for rewards with MSPS, panelists must fill out the survey for at least half the days in a calendar month. Panelists' logs must reflect media use across at least 3 different platforms. Panelists must also submit at least 80 logs in order to be eligible for their monthly reward. Panelists may participate in MSPS for two months in a row.
Panelists agree to hold only one account at a time with MSPS. Any panelist suspected of holding a duplicate account may be asked to prove their identity with supporting documentation. MSPS also limits the number of accounts allowed per household to 2. A household is defined by accounts sharing the same IP address, phone number, and/or postal code.
Panelists can only be rewarded once a month with MSPS.

This requires you to select a username and give us contact information (e.g. e-mail address) and demographic information (e.g. zip/postal code, date of birth, income level). Mediastats also records your IP address when you register. Mediastats does not collect your mailing address during our registration process.

Personally identifiable information means any information that may be used to identify you, such as your name, phone number, postal code, or e-mail address. Mediastats will not disclose your personally identifiable information to any third party unless you consent in advance, or for any of the following reasons:
MSPS surveys collect a wide variety of information on a diverse range of media usage behaviors. Your participation as a panelist is always voluntary. However, once you have completed a log entry on the MSPS site, the information provided cannot be recalled or altered. This information collected is used only for statistical and classification purposes in aggregated or summary form and is NOT shared, sold or used on an individual basis. The information we collect is stored and processed in our data processing facility, which is currently located on a secure server in Ontario, Canada. It is also stored on our hosted server.
Panelists who are legal Canadian or American residents at the time of enrolment are eligible to receive rewards from Mediastats. Your contact information is used by the administrator to determine your reward preference or to communicate program information. To receive your reward, you will be required to submit and/or verify certain information to the administrator (e.g. name and mailing address). This information is used only to ensure that you receive your reward. When claiming rewards, panelists may also complete an online affidavit, which gives Mediastats permission to post winners’ names and state country of residence on the company website.
