The following general terms and conditions will apply to all Reward Plans  for a CPA (unless otherwise agreed to with the Affiliate’s account manager in writing and part of Affiliate’s Reward Plan):

(1)          In any event of a Chargeback, Credit or suspected underage gambler (proven or not verified to be over 21), such an Affiliate Customer will not be considered for the purpose of the Reward Plan for a CPA , and any CPA Payment made to the Affiliate in respect of such Affiliate Customer shall be deducted from future payments to the Affiliate.

All calculations in connection with the amount payable to the Affiliate under the Reward Plan, will be made by the Operator and based solely on its systems' data and records, and its calculations will be final and binding. As part of the monthly payments process, the Operator will carry out a data reconciliation process to ensure data accuracy and correct billing for the previous month. This process may take up to ten (10) business days and may include without limitation: a) the detection of Fraudulent player activity that will be excluded from the Affiliate’s payment; and b) failed transactions that will be credited to the Affiliate’s account. The Operator shall begin the reconciliation process at the start of every calendar month.

  • Business by Other Persons

You shall have no claims to CPA Payment or other compensation on business secured by or through persons or entities other than yourself.

  • Payment Procedure
    • At the start of every calendar month, the Operator will make available to the Affiliate in his or her CSAP account a statement showing any balance due to the Affiliate (if any) in respect of the previous calendar month. Such statement of account will be deemed to have been accepted and agreed by the Affiliate if the Operator does not receive any comments as to the accuracy of the statement within two weeks of the date of such statement. After the Affiliate has accepted the statement of account, the Affiliate shall invoice Operator for the balance due. Operator shall then have forty-five (45) calendar days to remit payment to Affiliate by way of the Affiliate’s chosen currency and payment method (where available), provided the amount payable to the Affiliate is not less than (a) US$5 (or equivalent amount in the relevant currency) where the Affiliate is using a system and/or other e-payment system made available by the Operator; and/or (b) not less than US$200 where the Affiliate is paid by wire transfer. If these minimum amounts are not reached in a particular calendar month, the Operator will be entitled to withhold payment and carry the amount due to the Affiliate to the next calendar month and so on, until the minimum amounts are reached. Where the Affiliate has requested to be paid by wire transfer or any other payment method subject to a charge or fee, the Operator shall deduct any and all fees and charges from the balance due to the Affiliate. All payments will be due and paid in U.S. Dollars or in any other currency at the Operator’s discretion.

The Operator will be entitled to withhold or set-off any such amounts from the payments made to the Affiliate.

  • Chargebacks and Credits

Any Chargeback or Credit to an Affiliate Customer will disqualify such Affiliate Customer and the Affiliate will not be entitled to any payment with respect to such Affiliate Customer.

  • Right to Withhold Amounts
    • The Operator reserves the right to withhold all amounts due and payable to the Affiliate under this Agreement if the Affiliate does not hold the Required Gaming Approvals to receive such payment. It is the Affiliate’s responsibility to ensure it has received such Required Gaming Approvals and keep the Operator updated on any changes, including obtaining, renewal, suspension or termination, in the Affiliate’s Required Gaming Approvals.
    • The Operator reserves the right to withhold all amounts due and payable to the Affiliate under this Agreement if it believes that any Fraud has taken place or is contemplated which involves the Affiliate, whether or not the withheld amounts relate to the event in question.

  • Negative Balance Carry-Over
    • The Operator has a negative carry-over policy, meaning that any negative balance in the Affiliate’s Affiliate account will be carried over to subsequent months and will be set-off against the payments due to the Affiliate in the subsequent months, until the full negative balance is thus set-off.

        • that the Affiliate has not complied with its data protection obligations under clause 16 below;
        • that there is no activity in the Affiliate’s account for a continuous forty-five (45) day period, in which case this Agreement will be deemed to have been terminated by the Affiliate without notice.

        • The Operator may withhold the Affiliate’s final payment for a reasonable time to ensure that the correct amount is paid and that there are no debts or liabilities owing from You to it. The Operator will be entitled to deduct from any payments due and payable to the Affiliate, any such debts and liabilities due to Operator, if any.
        • Any continued access and use by Qualifying Customers or Affiliate Customers of any of the Sites following the termination of this Agreement (if any) shall not constitute continuation or renewal of this Agreement or a waiver of its termination.

        • Notwithstanding deemed termination pursuant to clause 1.3.9, any account unused for withdrawals, or otherwise inactive, for a period of at least six (6) consecutive months will be an “Inactive Account”. The Operator shall notify the Affiliate that its account is an Inactive Account and that the Inactive Account Fee will be deducted if the Affiliate does not reactivate its account (“Inactive Account Notice”). The Operator shall be entitled to retain fifty (50) percent of the total balance remaining on the Inactive Account (“Inactive Account Fee”) after 14 days have elapsed from the date of the Inactive Account Notice.

      • would violate any applicable anti-corruption laws, including the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the UK Bribery Act 2010, as well as any other applicable law prohibiting public or commercial bribery, extortion, kickbacks, or other unlawful or improper means of conducting business or regulations applicable to either Party;

      • is made to or for a public official with the intention of influencing them and obtaining or retaining an advantage in the conduct of business; or
      • a reasonable person would otherwise consider to be unethical, illegal or improper.
    • If either Party fails to comply with the provisions set forth in this clause, the breaching Party shall indemnify and defend the non-breaching Party, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents and employees from and against any and all claims, fines or damages of any kind (including, without limitation, court costs and legal fees) resulting from such breaching Party’s failure to comply with the provisions of this clause. Breach of this clause shall constitute an event of default hereunder and shall entitle the non-breaching Party the right to immediately terminate this Agreement without incurring any liability to the breaching Party.
  • Workplace Discrimination or Harassment

The Parties mutually agree that they do not tolerate workplace discrimination or harassment, including, without limitation, sexual harassment, committed by any person within their organization, including, without limitation, an owner, manager, employee or independent contractor, or by any person outside their organization, including, without limitation, a customer, client, vendor, contractor, consultant, or other person that does business with the organization (each a “Representative”). Any form of workplace discrimination or harassment, including sexual harassment, which violates federal, state or local law, including, but not limited to, discrimination or harassment based on an individual’s race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, or national origin, or any other protected status in accordance with the requirements of all federal, state and local laws is a violation of this clause. Affiliate shall adopt and implement written policies and procedures prohibiting workplace discrimination or harassment. In the event the Affiliate becomes aware of a violation of this clause or any violation of workplace discrimination or harassment laws, Affiliate shall notify the Operator informing Operator that a Representative is not adhering to the anti-discrimination/anti-harassment policy of the Parties or applicable law. Operator shall investigate such allegation, and in the event the Operator determines such Representative is not adhering to the anti-discrimination/anti-harassment policy of the Affiliate or applicable law, the Operator may terminate this Agreement with immediate effect.
