    Default Leo Vegas Terms Affiliate fines

    For some reason decided to have a good look at the terms.

    Term
    10.4 Contractual penalty
    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, in case of Your material breach or threatened material breach of any of the provisions of this Agreement or Affiliate Programme as well as any direct violation thereof, You shall be liable to pay a penalty of fifty thousand Euro (50,000) to Us for each such individual material breach or threatened material breach of this Agreement as provided herein (hereinafter referred to as Penalty).

    My question is, is this usual in all operator terms??

    Cheers

    UK gambling commission is fining to get casinos in line and this is the first casino threatening affiliates with a fine. Leovegas maybe tries to prevent fines caused by bad affiliate advertising. Happened recently in the UK.

    Haven't read this one before either. Thanks for sharing!

    I understand the need to make sure affiliates are not messing around which can lead to brand fine in the UK, but in my opinion this term is not so good and I dont think this is the way to attract affiliates, you need to work with affiliates close as they are partners, review and approve their activity etc'.. if after all that the affiliate is doing something wrong so they can terminate the agreement, no need to fine, the affiliate will lose his account and this is a big lose already

    OOh...tough stance, although it's one thing having the fine, applying it may be a bit more tricky, especially if they succeed = goodbye lots of affiliates! I for one would not want to work under such a risk.

    Affiliate Progams need to police their affiliates. Over the many years I have been in the industry ( Since 2000 ), the vast majority of affiliate programs have turned a blind eye to their affiliates activities. As long as it brought them players.

    I am pleased the UKGC is getting tough on programs and operators. 888 were very deserving of their record 7million plus fine for instance, concerning allowing self excluded players to sign up to other sites within their operation. As were the other operators such as BGO who felt the UKGC and ASA's wrath.

    Hopefully, when the dust settles, all the hackers, spammers, black hat, negative seo individuals etc will have left the UK space.

    However, this term by Leo Vegas is a joke quite frankly and I doubt if they tried to take such action against an affiliate it would have as much chance in the courts as Gibraltar winning the Football World Cup.

    Don't forget about this term too

    You shall permit LeoVegas (or a person on LeoVegas’ behalf) to audit Your books, records, systems, data, marketing communication consents and other materials to ensure compliance with this Agreement.

    They will just deduct it from your commission I guess. That's not something that is legally correct of course, but if you want to do something against it, you should take action against them.

    I appreciate that programs are trying to control their affiliates, but this kind of clauses I do not.

    So, using the wrong advertising materials is considered "threatened material breach "??
    Kind of severe considering they have very limited control over what thrid party sites publish.

    €50,000 fine? I question the lawfulness of that. Its not that if both parties agree on contract to an unfair condition it means that no court can over-rule it.

    Basically, it's unlawful, because they have to go to court to be able to collect this fine. I guess they will deduct it from your commission, which means you have to take them to court to fight against that.

    Dirty term of Leo Vegas.
