  • operators will be held fully accountable for the actions and behaviours of third parties, including affiliates;
  • operators will be required to comply with consumer law, particularly in relation to online promotions and the withdrawal of customer funds;

  • operators will be required to ensure that they don’t spam UK consumers by electronic means.
