Reports & payments

4.1

Reports — We will track and report Player activity for the purpose of calculating your Affiliate Commissions. The form, content and frequency of the reports may vary from time to time, at our sole discretion. Generally, you will receive a monthly report with your payment, indicating the total amount payable to you after any deductions, holdback or set offs that we are entitled to make. In addition, daily reports will be available online, allowing you to view information pertaining to the acquisition of new Players via your Referral link.

4.2

Affiliate Commissions — Affiliate Commissions are calculated (i) based on the amount of funds deposited by Players who are recognized to have been registered with the Website via your Referral link (Revenue Share), or (ii) based on the number of Players, recognized to have been registered on the Website via your Referral link (Commission per acquisition), or (iii) a combination of (i) and (ii).

  1. The Revenue Share Affiliate Commission model is calculated as a percentage, which will be published by the Operator in the Affiliate Commission related section of the Website, based the amount of funds deposited by referred Players into their Accounts. The Affiliate Commission is payable to the Affiliate as long as the following conditions are met:

    • At least 60 new Players register on the Website via your Referral link during a period of 3 consecutive calendar months.
    • The Players use at least 60% of their funds deposited onto their Account within a period of 3 calendar months starting from the day upon which they made their deposit of funds into their Account.
  2. The Commission per Acquisition Affiliate Commission model is calculated as a one-time flat fee for each Player referred, published by the Operator in the Affiliate Commission related section of the Website. Such Affiliate Commission is payable to the Affiliate if the Players use at least 60% of the funds deposited onto their Account within a period of 3 calendar months starting from the day upon which they made their initial deposit of funds into their Account.

The percentage and flat fee for calculating the Affiliate Commission decreases in the second and third year of the Player’s registration by 50%, in each case compared with the preceding year. During the following years, the percentage and the flat fee remain unchanged in comparison to the amounts applicable in the third year.

Unless otherwise agreed, and subject to the terms of the Agreement and your full compliance with your obligations thereunder, Affiliate Commissions accrued in any calendar month will be paid to you, less any deductions, holdback or set offs, by the twentieth day of the following calendar month.

If we determine that you have engaged in any of the acts or omissions outlined in Section 3.5 hereof, we may (without limiting any other rights or remedies available to us) withhold any Affiliate Commissions.

We are not obligated to pay Affiliate Commissions in respect of Players whose identity could not, at our sole discretion, be properly verified, who have not provided sufficient information and/or proof that the Account is held in their name and that funds have been deposited onto their Account from a payment method held in the Player’s name, or who are otherwise involved in Fraud Traffic. In the event that we determine any activity to constitute Fraud Traffic, or to be otherwise incompliant with the Agreement and/or these Terms and Conditions, then at our sole discretion we may: (i) pay the Affiliate Commissions in full, (ii) recalculate the Affiliate Commission in view of such suspected Fraud Traffic and/or (iii) claim back any Affiliate Commission relating in any way to Fraud Traffic and/or (iv) forfeit your future Affiliate Commissions in respect of Fraud Traffic (as appropriate).

4.3

Minimum Payment and Time of Payment — If the total amount payable for any calendar month is less than or equal to 100 Euro, the balance will be carried over and added to the next month’s Affiliate Commissions, until the total amount payable, less deductions, holdbacks and set offs, is more than 100 Euro. Further, if the amount payable is negative in any particular month, then that negative amount will be carried over and deducted / set off against future Affiliate Commission.

4.4

Holdback — We reserve the right to withhold 10% of each of your Affiliate Commissions for the duration of 6 months from the day the relevant Affiliate Commission has been paid out to you.

4.5

Holdback for Fraud Traffic — In addition to the previous provision, we reserve the rights to delay payment of the Affiliate Commissions to you, for the duration of our investigation, which shall generally not be longer than one-hundred-and-eighty (180) days, in the event of us suspecting any Fraud Traffic.

4.6

Method of Payment — All payments are payable in Euro or such other currency as we will determine. Payment will be made by wire transfer or any other method as we decide at our sole discretion; however, we will make reasonable endeavours to accommodate your preferred payment method. Charges for transfer of Affiliate Commissions and any currency conversion charges are borne by the Affiliate and deducted from the Affiliate Commissions.

4.7

Player Tracking and Active Players — You understand and agree that Players must register onto the Website using your Referral link and make deposits onto their Account in order for you to receive Affiliate Commissions. In no event are we liable for your or a Customer’s / Player’s failure to use the Referral links. Notwithstanding any other provision herein, we may at any time and at our sole discretion alter our tracking system and reporting format.

4.8

Disputes — You must report any inconsistencies within the monthly reports or your Affiliate Commission amount to us within 15 days of receiving the relevant monthly report. Until such discrepancies have been settled, we may withhold or claim back any Affiliate Commission. Reports, Affiliate Commissions and/or parts thereof, which remain undisputed over the period of 15 days outlined above are deemed to have been accepted by the Affiliate. The Operator reserves the right to reconcile the Affiliate Commissions within a period of 12 months, and in such cases in which we establish that any overpayment has been made, we may reclaim any such overpayment and/or settle the overpayment using Affiliate Commissions accrued previously or thereafter.

4.9

Money Laundering — You shall comply with all applicable laws and any policy notified by us through our Website or otherwise in relation to money laundering and/or the proceeds of crime.

4.10

Chargebacks — If a Player requests a chargeback, we may decide (i) to deduct (set off) the amount of Affiliate Commission relevant to such chargeback from the Holdback, (ii) claim back the amount of Affiliate Commission relevant to such chargeback, if the Holdback is insufficient, (iii) deduct (set off) the amount of Affiliate Commission relevant to such chargeback from any future Affiliate Commission and/or (iv) a combination thereof, as appropriate.

No-one who is, or seems to be under 25 years old may be featured in gambling marketing. No-one depicted or featured in your communications to people in the UK may behave in an adolescent, juvenile or loutish way.

  2. In the case of remote gambling, provided that the images appear in a place where a bet can be placed directly through a transactional facility such as a gambling operator’s own website. In such cases the individual depicted may only be used to illustrate specific betting selections in which they are the subject of the bet offered. The image or other depiction used must show them in their context as the subject of the bet, and not in a gambling context.

5.3

Marketing of offers in the UK — Notwithstanding any other requirements placed upon the Affiliate’s marketing activities relevant to the Agreement in the UK, any marketing communications, advertisements, and invitations to purchase our products and/or the Services, including ‘free bet’ offers, do not amount to or involve misleading actions or misleading omissions.

Any marketing activities relating to ‘free bet’, ‘bonus’ or similar offers must state significant limitations and qualifications, as such are available within the relevant content of our Website, where qualifications may clarify but must not contradict the claims that they qualify.

Marketing activities that include a promotion and are significantly limited by time or space (for example banner advertisements) must include as much information as may practicably be included and as is available within the relevant content of our Website, and must direct potential Players clearly to an easily accessible alternative source (for example to the content of our Website relevant to the promotion) where all the significant conditions of the promotion are prominently stated.

The terms relating to the understanding of a ‘free bet’ offer and of the commitments that potential Players have to make in order to take advantage of such an offer should generally be stated in the advertisement itself. Where the advertisement is limited by time or space (for example a banner advertisement), significant conditions which are available within the relevant content of our Website and are likely to affect a potential Player’s decision to participate in promotions should be displayed no further than one click away from the advertisement itself, otherwise the advertisement will be seen as misleading.

No advertising or other marketing information, whether relating to specific offers, promotions, or to us, the Website and/or the Services may appear on any primary web page/screen or micro site that provides advice or information on responsible gambling.
