Casinomeister, the advocate of fair play, has finally launched its Code of Conduct for affiliate webmasters. With over 1500 affiliate webmasters who are members of Casinomeister, Casinomeister has a significant reach.

Affiliate webmasters who decide to join the “Webmeisters” will abide by the following Code of Conduct:

  • The webmaster will not promote casinos that habitually prey on problem gamblers.
  • The webmaster will do his or her due diligence and ensure that the casinos they promote are using properly licensed software (i.e. no pirated copies of games, etc.)
  • The webmaster will not violate or infringe on other’s copyrights, trademarks, or any intellectual property.
  • The webmaster will not cheat affiliate programs by sending bogus traffic – complaints submitted from affiliate managers concerning this activity will be accepted.
  • The webmaster will not promote casinos in an unethical manner.

Bryan Bailey, director of Casinomeister stated, “This is long overdue. There are many upstanding affiliate webmasters who are continuously coming up with amazing websites, and unfortunately there are the bottom-feeders who threaten the livelihood of these entrepreneurs by association. For years, we have seen some affiliates promoting nefarious websites that intentionally target problem gamblers, or that use unlicensed pirated software. Additionally, there are a number of misguided affiliates who are exploiting the isolation of players with bad marketing techniques. I am hoping that we can reward affiliates who are promoting online casinos responsibly with being associated with Casinomeister. These affiliates will be listed at Casinomeister, and we will be linking to their sites. They will be identified by a Casinomeister Webmeister seal of approval.”

"Dear affiliate,

We would like to inform you that, due to changes in our current Business strategy, we have decided to proceed with the termination of all our activity in the German market.

As such, we ask you to, please, remove any brand communication, banners, textlinks and similar, for the above-mentioned brand and market.

As per clause 3.7.1 of our Terms and Conditions, “(…) we will pay commissions on all Active Player activity, up to the point the player account is closed. Once the player account is closed, there will be no further activity and you will therefore not earn any further Commission Fees on these specific players(…)”. The accounts closure will take immediate effect on the 15th of April.

As stated however on clause 3.7.1., “In the event that we terminate all promotional activity in a particular jurisdiction solely for business reasons (and without change in applicable laws or policy), and are unable to supply required 30 days’ notice the provisions of Clause 9.2. shall apply”, therefor, and in this particular case, “(…)you shall nevertheless be entitled to compensation for a thirty (30) day period from the date of notice of termination(…)”.
