You don’t have to look very far in the affiliate marketing industry to find complaints from affiliates regarding network representatives ‘stealing’ or hijacking’ their profitable campaigns.
You see, there is an inherent dilemma with the affiliate-to-network relationship in that network representatives can access the performance data of affiliates and then relatively easily identify where money is being made. So, what is stop that person (who should act ethically due to being placed in a position of trust), going home after a day of watching others building profitable campaigns and attempting to do the same?
At Clickthroo, we consider ourselves to be an honourable, ethical, and trustworthy bunch, but how do our users know that? We guarantee user privacy (providing users abide by our content T&C’s), meaning that any breach of this trust placed in us by users could be very damaging to Clickthroo should it be made public.
So, we decided offer our users a cast-iron privacy guarantee , and to build a number of features into Clickthroo that would give them a little peace-of-mind…
1. The Admin-Lock
This feature allows users to lock administrators out of their campaign pages, meaning that you do not authorize any representative of Clickthroo to acces your campaign or report pages at any time (there are of course a few exceptions, but any access would be notified with a full explanation).
2. The ‘Access Footprint’ (login history)
This feature allows you to see a record of all account log-ins to include timestamp, i.p and whether that person has accessed your account as an admin or not.
This way, if anybody accesses your account, you will be able to detect the login.
These features are intended to provide a degree of transparency from a user perspective, and should go some way to reassure users that their campaigns are safe with us!
