Adult Check Restructures, Introduces Hybrid Product
Source: Adult Check
by: Company Press Release
Effective as of November 16, 2003, Adult Check, the World's Largest Adult Entertainment Network, will replace its current AVS system with an innovative hybrid product, designed in conjunction with its top-producing Webmasters. This hybrid, a first in the adult industry, will enable Adult Check to comply with recent and future regulatory changes and remain the most successful, profitable business of its kind for years to come.
Based on specific and objective criteria, select Adult Check vendors have been asked to help create a new program that integrates the marketability of an AVS with the accountability of a paysite. These 100 select vendors, known as "Tier 1," entered into a contractual relationship with Adult Check to supply adult content to Adult Check's end-users. An additional 250 webmasters have been given the opportunity to participate as a "Tier 2" affiliates, driving traffic to the Adult Check system.
By entering into a contractual relationship, Adult Check and its vendors have confirmed a long-term commitment, and each has assumed greater accountability for the product's success. By forging tight bonds with a select group of content providers, Adult Check has dramatically reduced its liability, and can assume tighter control of the end user experience, assuring quick compliance with any card association and governmental regulations.
Effective as of November 10, 2003, content belonging to Webmasters who are not members of Tier 1 will be removed from the Adult Check links list. On or about November 16, 2003, these sites will be deactivated, and neither sales from nor authentication for these sites will function.
While Tier 2 affiliates will no longer be allowed to manage content in the system, Adult Check will continue its business relationship with them, accepting new signups through affiliate tours and paying out existing and future rebills to all Tier 2 affiliates who remain in good standing with program requirements. Adult Check will terminate its relations with and financial commitments to Webmasters not in Tier 1 or Tier 2 on November 15, with final payments paid out pursuant to existing accounting policies for any sums due and payable prior through that date.
Adult Check, which created the AVS model in 1996, has always been at the creative forefront of adult ecommerce. This latest innovation will allow Adult Check to remain the most forward-thinking, secure, compliant platform for its partners and ensure its continued success in the future.
