    2. The objective of promoting the Online Gambling Operators, as described in clause 3.1 above, shall be to drive, direct or refer Players to the Online Gambling Operators, using Your unique URL as the hyperlink thereto. By directing Players in such manner You will be ‘tagging’ or claiming such Players as your own referrals and which will therefore be assigned to You/Your account.
    3. Only properly ‘tagged’ Players will be assigned to an Affiliate. Should Your tag be improperly inserted into any marketing material or not properly received by the Online Gambling Operator servers, the resulting Player registration and purchases will not be assigned to You. It is wholly Your responsibility to ensure that all referred Players are properly tagged.
    4. The Online Gambling Operator assumes ownership of potential Players at point of first official contact with such party referred by You. In this regard, You act only as a referring agent for the Online Gambling Operators. The Online Gambling Operators reserve the sole, unfettered and exclusive right to refuse Players (or to close their accounts) if necessary, for example, but not necessarily limited to, to comply with any requirements which the Online Gambling Operators either may establish, from time to time, or pursuant to any applicable legal instrument . In the event that any Players’ account/s are suspended, or closed, by the Online Gambling Operator, and then is/are subsequently re-activated , then such Player/s will be reassigned/retagged to You, and You will be entitled to earn referral fees in terms of this Agreement.
    5. You shall also be entitled to register Second-Tier Affiliates with Us, provided that such Second-Tier Affiliate is a genuine arms-length person/entity and that You therefore derive no financial benefit whatsoever from Commissions paid by Us to a Second-Tier Affiliate. In the case of juristic corporate persons or entity, the Affiliate shall not be entitled to register as a Second-Tier Affiliate, any entity in which the Affiliate has any shareholding, financial interest or benefit whatsoever. For further information regarding Second-Tier Affiliates and any commission payable in this regard, please contact support@fortuneaffiliates.com.
    6. In the event that you refer a Second-Tier Affiliate to the Affiliate Programme, You will have 90 days in which to confirm that they are tracked to You through one of Your banner tags. After this period, We will not map any untracked Second-Tier Affiliates back to You, and You will not be eligible for any earnings from such Second-Tier Affiliates. In the event that You are unsure if a Second-Tier Affiliate is tracked to you, it shall be Your responsibility to contact Your relationship/account manager, within the aforementioned 90 day period.
    7. You must ensure that you comply with any relevant data protection laws in the jurisdiction in which You are domiciled and any jurisdictions in which You operate.
  4. Marketing Materials
    1. Any content which You choose to display/use on Your sites, or for Your marketing purposes, and in all communications published or disseminated by You relating to any of the Online Gambling Operators, must first be approved by Us. Any display and/or use of content upon Your website or in Your communications that We, in our sole discretion, deem unsuitable may result in this Agreement being terminated immediately and the loss of all future Commissions to You. Without derogating from the generality of the foregoing, content that we deem unsuitable includes, but is not limited to, content aimed at children; and/or containing sexually explicit materials; and/or promoting violence, discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age; and/or promoting illegal activities; and/or or violating the intellectual property rights of any third party including, but not limited to the intellectual property belonging to the Online Gambling Operators.

    4. Affiliates may not modify any banners or other creative material supplied by Us without Our prior written approval. The appearance and syntax of the hyperlinks shall be designed and designated by Us and constitute the only authorized and permitted hyperlinks that may be used in connection with the websites of the Online Gambling Operators.
    5. In the giving of effect to this Agreement You may not, either directly or indirectly, be a party to the generation, processing, dissemination or the like of Spam.
    6. Any form of Spam will result in Your account being placed under review and all funds owed to You being withheld, pending an investigation. If Our Merchant incurs expenses and/ or damages in dealing with Spam generated mail or being blocked by third party Internet Service Providers these same expenses and/ or damages will be deducted from Your account should Our Merchants seek recourse against Us. If this occurs the amount of such expenses and/or damages as determined by a Merchant will be deemed fair and final and acceptable to You. Should these expenses and/or damages not be covered by funds in Your account we have the right to investigate other alternative means for obtaining payment, for example: should Your account have generated purchasing accounts we will hold payment of commission for these accounts until such a time as the account for expenses and/or damages has been cleared.

Our decision in this regard will be final and no correspondence will be entered into. We reserve the right to retain all amounts, or a portion thereof that we deem fit, (including those legitimately generated) due to You under this Agreement, if We have reasonable cause, in our sole discretion, to believe that such traffic has been generated with Your knowledge.
    4. For the purposes of this Agreement, ‘advantage’ play and ‘incentivised’ Player traffic will not be included in determining any Commissions due to You. If you have any questions as to what constitutes ‘advantage’ or ‘incentivised’ play, You are urged to contact your relationship manager.

      1. If You become either Dormant or Inactive at any time during this Agreement, We reserve the right, in Our sole discretion, to either restructure, on an individual basis, the Commission calculation model applicable to Your account, including in respect of any Commissions due, or to terminate this Agreement.

      3. Any non-cash incentives or expenses involved in retaining Players may be deducted in Our sole discretion from Your Commission. Examples of non-cash incentives may include, but not be limited to, gifts, travel and other expense involving VIP hosts and the like.
      4. In the calculation of Commission where the Net Revenue 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 and Applicable Taxes will be carried over.
      5. Negative Commissionable revenue generated in any given month by any Players who We, in our sole discretion, determine to be “High Rollers” will be carried forward and offset against future commissionable revenue generated by Players referred by You until such negative commissionable revenue is cleared. The determination of the criteria to categorize a Player as “High Roller” shall be in our sole discretion, and Our sole responsibility in this regard shall be to advise you of the categorisation of any Players referred by you as the same by way of amendment to this Agreement. Current criteria for determining our High Roller policy are:
        1. if in any given month a player generates negative commissionable revenue of at least €10,000, and the aggregate commissionable revenue in that month (for the casino) for that Affiliate is negative €2,000 or greater, then such Player shall be deemed to be a High Roller;
        2. if both of the above criteria are met (7.1.4.1.) then the negative commissionable revenue generated by the High Roller will be carried forward and offset against future commissionable revenue generated by that High Roller;
        3. the negative balance carried forward cannot be set-off against other players' positive commissionable revenue;
        4. the negative balance carried forward cannot be greater than the total aggregate negative commissionable revenue for the affiliate, for that month;
        5. if there is more than one High Roller, the negative balance carried forward will be split proportionally between them;
        6. The negative balance of a High Roller will be reduced by future positive commissionable revenue that they generate in subsequent months. A negative balance will not be increased by future negative commissionable revenue unless the High Roller meets the qualifying criteria stipulated in 7.1.4.1 above, in subsequent months;
    2. We will provide a monthly report to each Affiliate detailing total number of Players referred by such Affiliate, activity generated and Commissions payable to such Affiliate and any High Roller balances. We may, from time to time, make available such further statistics as we deem to be necessary to enable Affiliates to better promote the Online Gambling Operators. We will enable Affiliates to access the report contents online.
    3. For the purposes of calculating Commission earnings, the Affiliate Programme month end is the last day of the month. Commission calculations for the purposes of determining the preceding month's balance are finalized by the 5th day of each month. Payments of Commission for the previous month are made by the 20th day after the close of the month
    4. Commission payments shall be effected by one of the payment methods found here. It is the responsibility of the affiliate to log in to his Fortune Affiliates’ account and within the “Payment Options” section select the method of payment and then complete all details for that selected method. Payment shall be made by Us to You by way of the selected method but only in the currencies found here, at the market exchange rate.
    5. Should a Player’s account be locked at their own request, and not for delinquent activity, the revenue of such Player will be added back to Your account and the impact may be positive or negative towards your overall earnings, dependent on such Player’s wins or losses.
    6. Commission Calculation
      1. Commission for Casino, Multi-Platform Gaming and Poker will be calculated in accordance with the calculations below, and as a percentage thereof:

        *Tiers are based on new acquisitions within the month. To qualify players must have registered, purchased and wagered in that order for the first time

        .

  8. Ring Fencing and Affiliate funds
    1. If, in any given month, Your Account reflects a negative Net Revenue balance for one brand and a positive Net Revenue balance for another brand, then the positive Net Revenue balance will be offset against the negative balance for that given month.
