    I just received this bs in my inbox. This is apparently affecting many affiliates.
    Inter, what are you thinking? None of this was stipulated in the original terms and conditions:

    Just a ploy to get affiliates to promote them - they are doing it the wrong way though!

    I have an InterCasino review up but I haven't sent them a handful of players over the last couple of years - wouldn't affect me at all if they shut my account :)

    Me too.
    Since they pulled out of the USA and didn't try to compete with the likes of MG & Rival they became a waste of web-space.

    It is a terrible shame to see the way things went for what was the worlds Number 1 internet casino (and my personal favourite too) up until 2006 - but they have only themselves to blame.
    Sad :(

    Yes, back in the days Inter were doubtlessly one of the very top casino establishments. As they are planning to switch software providers I was intended to promote them again... until today.

    It is a shame that they are now deciding to apply retroactive terms and confiscate players after having maintained a very decent reputation for more than a decade.

    Bloody hell, looks like they're doing a 'Roxy'. Bad move.

    I guess I had a player last month. Haven't logged in there in a real long time.

    Inter eventually decided to keep my account open but this email took my trust. Again... There has not been any quota in their terms by the time the account was opened. I also do not see any logical reason to implement this quota at all.

    Hi all,

    Apologies for the delayed response – I had been speaking to “CygX1” and wanted to sort that out before publically commenting on this thread.

    As we said in our original email - we are contacting a handful of affiliates that fell into the criteria of the InterPartners Terms and Conditions stated to discuss a reactivation / rejuvenation strategy. Our goal is always to reactivate rather than terminate accounts.

    When looking at the criteria, we checked contact details and website as well as current statistics etc and found in this case that the site we had listed was no longer in existence and the affiliate had no active players (no new traffic since 2009). It is part of our current terms and also those of PartnerLogic, that it is the affiliate’s responsibility for the development, operation and maintenance of their websites.

    After discussion via email, the above is to remain open, and a reactivation strategy is to be discussed. This would be the same procedure for any affiliate contacted.

    We apologise if the wording of the email has been miss-construed, as I have said each and every affiliate that fell in this category was looked at separately and in great detail. We do not take such communication lightly and definitely do not want to create an air of mistrust about the programme within the affiliate community.

    I would welcome any comments, please contact me at katy@interpartners.com

    Thanks

    Katy

    Yes, Katy did contact me. However, I still do not see any term in the Partnerlogic t&c that would permit them closure of accounts due to missing traffic. The Partnerlogic term Katy is referring to is term 3.6. This term merely stipulates that any affiliate is responsible for their website(s) and that Partnerlogic cannot be held accountable for any content or website which is not theirs.

    Anyway, as Inter intends to keep my account open, I will let this go the time being and will see how their casinos and affiliate program are going to develop over the coming months.

    I agree that term 3.6 does not allow closing of accounts for non-traffic.

    Katy, is this the term you are relying on, when closing account?

    Hi all,

    Our goal is and always will be to maintain long-standing and mutually beneficial partnerships with our affiliate base. We endeavour to do what we can to keep our relationships moving forwards. The purpose of this initiative was to try to reactivate affiliate accounts classified as inactive.

    As discussed with senior management, we have made the decision that the stated term will apply to affiliates that joined the program post May 2011 and as such agreed to said terms and conditions on registration.

    It was never our intention to negate long standing relationships and we are committed to maintaining the trust and integrity of the InterPartners program.

    If any of you would like to discuss this in more detail, please feel free to PM me or indeed email me at katy@interpartners.com.

    Thanks

    Katy

    I signed up my account long before 2011 and should have never been sent this email. Actually I was very much looking forward to see the new Playtech Casino and had good trust in your company.
