As part of Meridian’s mission to become one of the globally most customer-centric companies, we are committed to building a sustainable business for our employees, customers, and communities. We are driving toward a net-zero carbon future where the people that support our entire value chain are treated with dignity and respect.

Our commitment to a sustainable future depends upon the people who support our value chain every day— from retail shops where our products are sold to customers, all the way to the suppliers and business associates. We are committed to ensuring our employees, workers, and communities are treated with dignity and respect. While these fundamental values have been long-held at Meridian, in 2021, we codified them into a Corporate Code of Conduct, reaffirming our commitment to human rights and outlining our approach across all aspects of our business – meaning a zero-tolerance policy towards malpractice, harassment or misconduct of any kind.

Our responsible sourcing program especially focuses on Meridian’s suppliers. That is why we engage in robust supplier due diligence and prioritizing mechanisms that drive continuous improvement in backup checks. We are committed to working with our suppliers to remedy issues and establish systems to prevent future issues. We expect our suppliers to consistently monitor and enforce our standards in their operations and supply chain as well as make improvements to meet or exceed our expectations and standards. We use independent auditors to verify supplier compliance with our Supply Chain Standards through regular on-site inspections and confidential worker interviews.

We are committed to building trusted relationships with customers, regulators, local communities, and sports organizations alike and maintain constant dialogue across jurisdictions and different stakeholders for all matters of sports betting integrity – national sports associations and law enforcement agencies, UEFA Integrity Platform, FIFA BKMS System and Interpol.

Betting is all about fair sports competitions – that is why we provide background checks and detailed reporting on both organizations and individuals to help sports governing bodies, clubs, anti-doping organizations, law enforcement agencies by finding weak spots, potential integrity red flags, issues, and threats to their sport and business.

Proactivity is the most responsible gambling policy

Responsible gambling is a much broader concept than simply tackling problem gambling issues. According to more than 200 studies in the EU and the UK, a maximum of 2% of gaming and betting consumers are prone to developing some form of harmful and problem gambling. Consequently, responsible gambling means defining policies and setting out a practice that prevents negative aspects of gambling from even showing up.

Fair and credible product and services

Our paramount objective is to deliver gambling services responsibly. We are fully committed to fostering a safe, reliable, and transparent context in which the gambling is taking place, by implementing strict corporate standards, and organizing conferences, debates, and informal dialogue with all the industry’s stakeholders.

Security of players

 We particularly emphasize the protection of privacy (data protection), responsible processing of payment data, fairness, and the random nature of the products offered which is monitored closely by independent authorities. These principles are particularly referred to upon advertising of new offers and promotions, as we promote only such services we can deliver.

Security of the game

 Meridianbet strictly monitors any issues that may signal potential fraudulent behavior. Manipulation of bets and money laundering are crimes, not a game. Our Company is fully compliant with the national and EU AML Directives. In that respect, our Company conducts regular training courses for the employees in charge of money transactions and check-ups.

Protection against gaming addiction

Betting should be considered a game and pastime, not a way to make money. However, we are aware betting can lead to problems for a small group of customers. All the user data related to responsible gaming is dealt with by a dedicated support team within the customer support department., which provides the customers with the recommendations to preserve a responsible approach to enjoying our offer.

Meridianbet has participated in the design of the project “It is possible to quit”. With more than 3,000 employees involved, this project took place in coordination with worldwide national health organizations in charge of problem gambling. The project’s main objective was to organize preventive training programs for employees in our betting shops and customer support departments, bearing in mind they are in regular, daily contact with the customers, both in shops and online.

This approach proved to be the most efficient in treating negative issues of gambling as it both relies upon the expertise of medical staff and suggests all the employees contribute by behaving and reacting without any prejudice when faced with potential problem gamblers.

Protection of minors

As a zero-tolerance principle, Meridianbet implements the policy of absolute exclusion of minors from getting in touch and involving in either retail or online offer. Written confirmation of the age (date of birth as stated in the ID document) is, therefore, a mandatory procedure upon registration, as well as upon the first withdrawal of funds initiated by the customer.

Our customers are strongly advised to install software that enables them to block and filter web traffic to prevent minors from reaching betting and gaming websites.

Deposit and Loss Limits

For all the customers, Meridianbet offers a variety of self-protection measures to make sure the user experience remains responsible.

All our customers have the opportunity to reduce their deposit limit to an amount below the standard limit. Any request to increase personal deposit limits can only be processed after the lapse of 24 hours at the earliest whereas a request to reduce the limit will be implemented immediately.

Customers can also set the limit of the funds available for deposit and bet for the 24 hours, week, or month period

Time-out feature

Meridianbet offers to all the customers the possibility of the Time-Out feature, be it for 24 hours, 7 days, or six weeks. During the Time-Out, customers are only permitted to withdraw any remaining funds from the account balance.

Self-exclusion

Our customers can exclude themselves from further interaction with the services in our shops/website from one day up to 5 years or indefinitely.

Self-exclusion can be extended as many times as deemed necessary by the customer. During self-exclusion, the customer’s remaining account funds are at disposal for withdrawal at any time, the customer is removed from our marketing database and is strongly advised to consider self-exclusion from all other gambling operators they may have an account at
