In late 2012, the Tribunal adjudicated against interactive competition services operated by the Level 2 providers Amazecell (29 September 2012, case reference 08341) and M.E. Media Market Limited (25 October 2012, case reference 09826). The services operated by both providers were promoted using affiliate marketing. There was evidence, from both consumers and internal monitoring, that some of the affiliate promotions for the services were misleading.

The Level 1 provider in both cases was Netsize UK Limited. During the course of the investigations against both of the Level 2 providers, the Executive had concerns regarding the Network operator's assessment of risk and the adequacy of the continuing steps taken to control risk in relation to the promotion of both services.
