    Terms spidered on March 27th, 2013 08:46 AM





    SUMMARY: This is a terms change requested by the AGD team









    Affiliate Obligations



    3. Rights and Obligations of the Affiliate


    3.1 The Affiliate shall perform the services actively, by effectively advertising, marketing and continuously using its best efforts to promote the Website as widely as possible. For the avoidance of doubt, the Affiliate understands and accepts that the Company shall in its sole and absolute discretion determine whether potential New Customers (as defined below in Clause 4.1) shall be accepted or not. The Company shall also in its sole and absolute discretion be entitled to determine whether to close New Customer's account if it, in the sole opinion of the Company, is necessary to comply with the Company's policy and/or to protect the interest of the Company and/or Mr Green.


    3.2 The Affiliate will at all times abide with any guidelines of the Company as may be forwarded from time to time (as may be amended from time to time at the Company's sole and absolute discretion). Notices to the Affiliate concerning any such amendments shall be made in writing and will take effect fourteen (14) days' after such notice is deemed to have been received under this Agreement according to 8.1 Written notification may be given by email and/or by pop-up message according to 8.1.


    3.3 The Affiliate agrees to only use links, promotion, advertising or marketing material provided within the scope of the Affiliate Program, and no other material relating to the Company and/or Mr Green, unless specifically authorized in writing by the Company. The Affiliate understands and acknowledges that it shall market and refer potential players to the Website at its own cost and expense.


    3.4 The Affiliate operates the Affiliate Sites under its own name and risk and is responsible for the development, operation, and maintenance of them as well as for all material appearing on the Affiliate Site(s).


    3.5 The Affiliate shall at all times conduct its business in a manner that reflects favorably upon the high quality image of the Company and/or Mr Green. The Affiliate shall engage in good business practice and comply with all applicable laws and regulations. In specific, all of the content of the Affiliate Sites and the Affiliate's marketing activities must be professional, proper and lawful under applicable laws, and in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.


    3.6 The Affiliate may not purchase, attempt to register, or register keywords, search terms or other identifiers for use in any search engine, portal, sponsored advertising service or other search or referral service and which are identical or similar to any of the Company's and/or Mr Green´s trademarks or otherwise include the word "Mr Green" or variations thereof, or include metatags on the Affiliate Site(s) which are identical or similar to any of the Company's and/or Mr Green´s trademarks and/or the Website.


    3.7 The Affiliate may not use any framing techniques or technology on the Website, or encourage any third party to do so, unless specifically authorized in writing by the Company.


    3.8 The Affiliate shall not perform any act which is libelous, discriminatory, obscene or otherwise unsuitable or which contains sexually explicit, pornographic, obscene or graphically violent materials. Further, the Affiliate Site(s) shall not use the Company's and/or Mr Green´s trademarks in any way that may harm Company and/or Mr Green, or their trademark(s), goodwill and/or branding. It is essential that the Affiliate Site(s) reflect positively upon the Website.


    3.9 The Affiliate agrees that it shall not generate traffic to the Website by illegal or fraudulent means, particularly but not limited to sending spam, cookie spam or registering as a player. Further, the Affiliate agrees that it shall not make deposits directly or indirectly to any player account through his tracker(s), or in any other way attempt to artificially increase the commission payable or to otherwise defraud the Company. Violation of this provision shall be deemed to be fraud.


    3.10 The Affiliate agrees that it will not present the Affiliate Site(s) in such a way that it might give rise to confusion with the Website and/or Mr Green and/or the Company.


    3.11 The Affiliate shall not promote the Company, Mr Green or the Website and/or create pages using Mr Green trademarks, brands or slogans in any social media. 3.12 The Affiliate shall not target any person who is under the legal age for gambling, nor target any jurisdiction where gambling and the promotion thereof are illegal.


    3.13 The Affiliate shall indemnify and hold harmless the Company, Mr Green and each of its affiliates, directors, officers, employees, shareholders, attorneys, agents and partners (the ''Indemnified Party'') from and against any and all losses, demands, claims, damages, costs, expenses (including without limitation consequential losses and loss of profit, reasonable legal costs and expenses) and liabilities suffered or incurred, directly or indirectly, by the Indemnified Party in consequence of any breach, non-performance or non-observance of this Agreement or any applicable law by the Affiliate and/or any claims related to Affiliate Site(s) or links.








    SUMMARY: The certification team will re-review Mr. Affiliate and I expect their certification to be restored after the final vote.

    Good catch, that. You do this stuff so that we don't have to. I've got page-change monitors on lots of casino pages, notifying me of bonus/t&c changes at casinos, but there's no way I'd catch everything. You need a PayPal donate button.

    It's a chore... but more for going through the spider and picking out minor from major modifications (i.e., tons of programs have things like Tickers, Dates, and other auto-updating content that trip up a spider). I chose a couple of years back to scrape the whole page instead of *just* the terms after a couple of programs caught me off guard (not purposefully) with changes made that were not detected.

    There are about 100 of those to go through daily. :)

    Donate button... I have thought about it, but I am ok with sponsors for now. I have affiliate site sponsors on the homepage which helps coding costs (another feature coming out shortly, btw). Other than that I just have to get my affiliate earnings back up. That's more important to me since I *have* to try to do well as an affiliate to be able to give advice out to others :)

    Mr. Affiliate is now Re-Certified

    Good to see Mr Affiliate is re-certified. It's one of my favourite affiliate programs, Jonas and Gemma are the best.

    Bit later, I will send you a PM re. the rest, Andy.
