The terms of this Agreement shall also apply to any second-tier affiliate, and you shall be liable for all acts and omissions of that second-tier affiliate to the same extent you would be liable if such acts and/or omission that is carried out through such second-tier affiliate was performed directly by you.

We do not allow anyone under the age of 18 to register with or play on our Sites. Our Sites are not designed to attract children or adolescents, and we take certain measures to block underage persons from registering with the Sites.

- Affiliate Earnings & Payments
4.1. Please note that credit shall not be issued to any affiliate.
4.2. On joining the Affiliate Program your account will be set to our default commission of 20% of the monthly Net Gaming Revenue generated from new players qualifying as FTDs referred by you. For the purpose of this Agreement, “Net Gaming Revenue” means: games bets minus games winnings minus bonuses minus chargebacks minus processing fees minus third parties fees (including but not limited to licensing fees and royalties) minus gaming taxes (including VAT where such tax is used as an equivalent to gaming tax) and any tax, charge, levy or tariff levied or charged on gaming turnover minus other adjustments required to make the calculation of the Net Gaming Revenue reflect the appropriate revenue generated.
4.3 Should you elect to receive cost per acquisition (CPA) instead, your earnings are per new players qualifying as FTDs and subject to actual playing for real money after depositing for the first time without chargeback, where withdrawal without playing or disproportionate chargeback by Affiliate’s referred players may, at our sole and absolute discretion, disqualify entitlement to CPA earnings.
4.4 Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, you will not be entitled to, and will not receive, any commission, whether CPA based, revenue share based, a combination of the two or based on any other calculation, in respect of any player that (i) has made any chargeback or a refund request, regardless of the time in which the player made such a chargeback or refund request ; or (ii) in any form or manner, in any jurisdiction and/or vis-à-vis any operator and/or us, self excluded himself/herself and/or placed any other limitation on his/her gameplay during a period of one month commencing on the date in which he/she makes his/her first deposit after first opening an account as required for qualifying as an FTD (each of (i) or (ii) – “Ineligible FTD”). Where you have received a commission in respect of an Ineligible FTD prior to that player performing the action making him/her an Ineligible FTD, you will return all of the commissions received in connection with such player, according to a calculation provided by us; alternatively, at our sole discretion, we shall deduct such sums from your future commission(s).
4.5 Your earnings are personal, and you shall have no claim in connection with any earnings or other compensation on business secured by or through persons or entities other than yourself. You cannot withdraw payments for or on behalf of a third party.
4.6 We reserve the right to change any earnings structure (or any part thereof) from time to time, for any reason we deem fit.
4.7 All earnings payments will be paid to your affiliate account designated in your affiliate sign up form in the currency of our choice.
4.8 Any charges for conversion, processing and delivering payment to you will be deducted from your earnings. For the avoidance of doubt, we have no liability to pay any currency conversion charges or any charges associated with the transfer of monies to your designated account In addition, we charge a monthly administration fee as shall be determined by us, taking into account the various costs and expenses related to the applicable activities; such administration fee will be deducted from your monthly Net Gaming Revenue commission (where applicable).
4.9. In the event that we determine any activity to constitute fraud traffic, or to otherwise be in contravention of this Agreement, then in our sole discretion we may: (i) recalculate the earnings in light of such suspected fraud traffic or contravention, (ii) delay any payment of earnings due to you while we investigate and verify the relevant transactions or (iv) forfeit any earnings due to you in connection with this Agreement.
4.10. If you disagree with the reports or amounts payable, do NOT request or accept payment for such amount and immediately send us written notice of your dispute. Furthermore, deposit of payment check, acceptance of payment transfer or acceptance of other payment from us by you will be deemed full and final settlement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any overpayment is made in the calculation of your earnings, we reserve the right to correct such calculation at any time and to reclaim from you any overpayment made by us to you.
4.11. If we suspect the terms and conditions of this Agreement have been breached or the occurrence of fraud traffic, we may hold any payment requests for the duration of the investigation and your account will be frozen until we can validate that there has been no breach of this Agreement. If your account remains frozen as a consequence of this clause 4.11 for a continuous period of 90 days, then in the absence of: satisfactory explanation; or evidence to prove legitimate dealings, funds remaining in your account will be forfeited and your account will be closed.
4.12. You shall be responsible for paying any taxes in connection with your earnings under any and all applicable laws.
4.13. If you wish to offer any incentives to potential players, you are required by us to receive prior written approval from us, before commencing any such activity. In the event that you do not receive such approval but offer such incentives, we reserve the right to cancel your participation in the Affiliate Program, and refuse payment of any previously earned, but unpaid, commissions.
4.14. Unless agreed in advance in writing with us, any fees due to you at the end of each month can never be negative. All negative amounts will be carried over to the following months until any net loss is recovered from net revenues generated in those succeeding months.
4.15 Customized affiliates that agreed with Us on no-negative carryover: Subject to section 4.16, in case your balance under a revenue share payment plan in any given month is negative due to customer winnings and/or non-cash items and/or cash items and/or progressive contributions said balance will be set to zero. A negative balance due to Fraud costs will be carried over.
4.16 Without derogating from any other provision of this Agreement, any player that his or her sum of bets minus winnings in a single month is lower than EUR (-10,000) shall be quarantined, and provided that the Net Gaming Revenue in that month is a negative number, then the Net Gaming Revenue associated with that player shall not be taken into account when calculating your Net Gaming Revenue commission, until the total sum of bets minus winnings generated by that player is zero or a positive number.
4.17. “Inactive Account” means an account where no traffic of any new registered players qualifying as First Time Depositors (FTDs) are generated within 180 day period or more.
4.18 If your Inactive Account is deemed as dormant, your account will be terminated with our right to freeze the commission on it and any funds remaining in your balance may be forfeited and your participation in the Affiliate Program will automatically terminate (“Dormant”).
4.19 If you decide, for whatever reason, to cease promoting our brands and/or you do not generate traffic of any new registered players qualifying as First Time Depositors (FTDs) within 180 day period or more, your account will be deemed as Inactive Account. It is your responsibility to notify us of this fact, withdraw your remaining funds and request to deactivate your account. If you fail to do so, we reserve the right to tag your Inactive Account as Dormant.
4.20 If your account is deemed as Inactive Account, in respect of either CPA deal or revenue share deal (as applicable), a notification will be issued alerting you that the account is now deemed Dormant due to inactivity. We will then give you a further 30 days in which to respond and confirm that you wish to stop promoting our brands and close your account, or to work with us to reactivate your account and start promoting and earning money again.
4.21. If no response is received to our attempts to contact you during those 30 day period, your account will be closed and earnings remaining in your balance may be forfeited.
4.22. Due to Anti Money Laundering concerns, accounts that have not made a withdrawal for 180 continuous days will be asked by us to withdraw the funds in their account. We reserve the right to close accounts that refuse to comply with this request within 30 days, and any remaining balances may be forfeited.
4.23. In the event that the commission to be paid to you in any calendar month is less than $300 (the “Minimum Amount”), we shall not be obligated to make the payment until such time as the commission is equal to or greater than the Minimum Amount.
5.1. We will track and report player activity for purposes of calculating your earnings. The form and content of the reports may vary from time to time in our sole discretion. Generally, you can, at your own initiative and timing, generate your own reports regarding the qualified acquisitions signed up in a particular period and/or the total amount due to you after any deductions or set offs that we are entitled to make under this Agreement. We hereby exclude any and all liability for the timeliness, accuracy or completeness of any such reports.
