    Just a wee question regarding e-mails i receive daily and too be honest it is quite a mountain on a weekly basis.
    How do Affiliates manage to get hold of not just my e-mail but also my name?
    I have never signed up for a casino through one so i just cannot understand how i keep getting the damn things.
    Are casino's allowed to pass this information on ?

    No, but gamblers' e-mail addies are worth a packet. Some casinos use clauses of 'offers of interest from associated businesses' to get sister sites or other sub-licensees to spam you. No doubt databases are illegally sold or traded by bent employees or ex-employees. Once they get into the hands of spamming affiliates usually operating out of reach of prosecution, they are used to exhaustion then passed/sold on to other groups of spamming affiliates. Rogue casinos may pay lip service to stopping illegal spam but 'money talks' and they will do little about it. You may also have your e-mail passed on by other non-gambling related entities such as newsletters etc.

    Agree with everything dunover said.

    Also SO many gambling sites have been hacked over the years (neteller as well) that you have to assume your email address and name is being sold on some Russian kiddy hacker forum as we speak. Even if the perpetrators did not go after payment details as dunover said an active email address/address/name of a gambler is worth a bunch and some just take this to sell on. I also suspect many companies themselves of selling details or passing them onto others.

    Sometimes you do give consent to "select business partners" when you join a casino.

    And it's not only casinos, you might agree to terms in an app or game. Or a contest at the local pizza parlour for a car.

    Or there are spambot programs. If you email address remotely resembles a name or word, with various numbers attached, you'll get some.

    There are a quite a few "how to make a gazillion dollars from home" that sell mailing lists that are harvested from other online sites.

    You can almost never unsubscribe, unsubscribing just shows you are someone that actually reads them.

    It doesn't take as much effort to scroll by them as recycle the junk mail that comes by post.

    Thanks all.

    I must admit i have tried the unsubscribe part but all that happens is a new one on the block arrives soon after.
    My huge concern i suppose is if this information is being passed on i wonder if the more sensitive information ie bank details are ever passed on also.

    Do not get me wrong i know many of the casinomeister members are affiliates and i have looked at their websites and they have put in a lot of work so they deserve customers and good luck to them and as far as i am aware i have never had an e-mail from anyone on this site promoting their goods so fair play to them.

    I looked back a few days ago and of 19 junk e-mails i received 17 were from affiliates.
    I only play at 5 casino's and i have not joined a new casino in a long long time.

    If you are a domain owner, you are usually registered under whois. If you dont hide it, anyone can figure out who you are.

    You must register/login in order to see the link.

    1. Go buy a domain name for $4.99
    2. Don't purchase WHOIS privacy protection.
    3. Wait 24 hours and see what happens.

    Your e-mail address will be bombarded with 'web development' offers, SEO offers and arseholes trying to sell you WHOIS at double the price you could have paid when you registered the domain. You'll then receive bogus invoices that you 'must pay to avoid cancellation of your registration' both e-mail and by snail mail. Then brilliant offers will start arriving on your mobile phone and your landline will suddenly inform you about an 'accident' you never knew you'd had.

    So unless you are remarkably naïve you would always use privacy.

    There are shitehawks and vultures poised ready to spam you literally as soon as a new domain is registered. They trawl them.:(

    It's not always a great idea to click the 'unsubscribe' links - this sends a signal that the email account is active and makes it worth a lot more and it's now considered an 'active' lead. It depends who the mailing client is, but most gambling/porno/pharma mails aren't getting sent out by reputable mailing clients and as such you want to be careful.

    I certainly have not bought any domain or entered any competition on line or have infact done anything that would attract shitehawks as you would say. i accept i will receive junk but i really hate it when i see they have my full name attached to it.
    I will just keep deleting as usual.

    No, I didn't, but about 11 years ago I did buy one and made the mistake of not including privacy settings. I've no reason to believe it'll be any different nowadays.

    As for Mr Bigs, I never said you had bought a domain but was explaining WHY the owners hide their details - not because they are bent but because too many bent people will abuse the info. :what:

    Sorry, that's Mr Wild I meant not theBigs!

    I've got a recent domain i didn't put privacy on as my registrar said companies are legally not allowed to use privacy services.

    I wanted to go on a rampage in india with all the calls i was getting. Even from casino affiliate groups who keyword searched the domain and got in touch >_<
