A webmaster friend of mine received this today:
The team at Grand Privé Casinos is proud to announce the re-launch of Grand Privé Affiliates. The new program is now live and offers our affiliates a smoother, more efficient system that features accurate and reliable statistics, guaranteed uptime and complete transparency.
It has been more than two years since GrandPrive had to take the decision to close down the affiliate program. We were forced to take this step due to the fact that the Microgaming affiliate system was unreliable. The numerous inconsistencies in tagging and errors in resulting earnings affected the trust you placed in us and embarrassed us as an operator. This situation was also intensified by other factors beyond our control.
Once we closed the old program, GrandPrive was understandably lambasted by both forums and individuals, and at the time we were only able to make limited comment and unable to fully defend ourselves and present the true facts. However, we are no longer bound by any constrictions and can, for the first time say, to all our valued affiliates, we profoundly regret the deterioration of our relationship, and we fully understand the anger and hostility expressed towards us. If we had an alternative course of action open to us, we would gladly have taken it. The fact is we had no alternative and had to remain silent in the face of intense criticism. That time is now over and we can move ahead with confidence.
As you are well aware, GrandPrive was one of the earliest casino groups on the internet. It was one of the first to be regulated by credible regulators; one of the first groups to be approved by PWC for casino reviews, and we were in the first batch (of four) casinos to receive the eCOGRA seal of approval. For 10 years GrandPrive casinos have won rave reviews and the respect of players and forums.
To continue our tradition of excellence, we have selected the best software available in the market place. We are proud to introduce our new affiliate program, which offers the unique opportunity for you as an affiliate to work directly off the gaming server. As you know, no other program in the online casino world is able to offer you this. This revolutionary feature ensures that our affiliate system is one of the most efficient on the internet, giving you the most accurate and reliable statistics, guaranteed uptime and complete transparency.
We have moved your account across to the new GrandPrive affiliate system and have tagged all players ever associated with you to your account. Since 1 April 2010 all your players have been tagged to the new system and your payments from April 2010 up until now will be activated on 3 March 2011.Where players have already migrated to the new software, you are being credited with the appropriate revenue. In instances where a player may only in future move to the new software, you will automatically be credited with the associated revenue when this occurs.
We invite you to log in to the new site at www.grandpriveaffiliates.com, update your details and ensure that your vital information, such as payment method, is correct.
