    Default Chat Bots

    Whoa! The chatbots are getting smarter! Hello customer retention!

    E.g., we notice you do not have any money. If you promise to make a deposit tomorrow, I can add $10 no deposit right now.

    Or, how about this:

    "If you send me an email of one of your friends who is not registered, I will give you $5. If they register and make a deposit, I will give you a $100 bonus."

    In my opinion that is a disgusting practice....

    They "pay you" to give them email addresses of others, to which you do NOT have the recipients permission to do so, and they CLEARLY do not have the recipients permission to add them to a spam list....

    Permission of the "actual" recipient, is neither given nor implied...

    Agreed.

    However this practice, along with others such as selling; trading; exchanging etc., etc., both affiliate and player personal data, including emails and mobile numbers, is more the norm for the 'online gambling industry', than it is an exception.

    A couple of months ago, was contacted by an AM I didn't know. I responded, asking how he got my details. Apparently a colleague, who had worked at another program, was now working with this guy (at a new aff program), and gave him my details...

    Furthermore, since the AU GIA came into force, I've been literally inundated with sms txt messages from clip joint casinos. Wonder where they got both my mobile number and my name from. The sames goes for emails too.

    Unless I, or anyone else, provides their actually expressed permission to receive 3'rd party contact, then don't share this data, period.

    It's your right to be treated honestly: fairness for all igaming affiliates - doch.news - no sponsors. Hence no conflicts of interest!

    Yes Dave,

    I too often ask FIRST where they got my contact details, and if they can not answer that TRUTHFULLY, I usually have little to no interest in dealing with them.

    Most of them think it is ok to solicit without permission, but then ask affiliates to agree to contracts and terms they will only use "permission based marketing" although they never seem to follow their own terms.

    This is really slick, a easy way to build a massive mailing list at a relatively low cost(Assuming they do pay you) and sell it off to legit advertising companies.

    It is actually a bad practice, but sometimes it works in the "soft" casinos and sportsbooks.
