This license cannot be sub-licensed, assigned or otherwise transferred by you. Your right to use the marks is limited to and arises only out of this license to use the banners.

8. Confidential Information
8.1. During the term of this Agreement, you may be entrusted with Confidential Information relating to the business, operations, or underlying technology of our Clients and/or the affiliate program (including, for example, referral fees earned by you under the program). You agree to avoid disclosure or unauthorized use of the Confidential Information to third persons or outside parties unless you have our prior written consent and that you will use the Confidential Information only for purposes necessary to further the purposes of this Agreement. Your obligations with respect to Confidential Information shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
9.1. You will earn referral fees based on Net Revenue, calculated according to the percentages reflected in the Fee Schedule below. Only credits actually purchased by a Real Player (in the case of Casino Clients) will be eligible for payment.
9.2.1. Net Revenue is defined as gross bets less payouts (calculated using the Client's software) less (i) progressive contributions (progressive games only); (ii) sign-up bonuses and/or promotions that may have been taken up; (iii) Charge backs and discretionary returns.
9.2.2. Net Rake (in the case of poker players) is defined as the total contribution made by each of the players you refer less (i) sign-up bonuses and/or promotions that may have been taken up; (ii) chargebacks and discretionary returns
9.3. Fee Schedule
Monthly Net Revenue
$1 - $15,000
Monthly Net Revenue
$15,001 - $30,000
Monthly Net Revenue
$30,001 - or more
9.4. We retain the right to change the fee schedule and method of calculation of fees.
9.5. If the account is in a negative position (e.g. because total customer winnings have exceeded total customer losses) a balance of zero will be carried over until the following month.
9.6. Referral fees will be based upon our good faith calculation based on our statistics.
9.7. 2nd Tier Affiliate Program - You shall be entitled to a referral bonus of 2%, with respect to monthly Net Revenue generated by visitors who arrive from other Affiliates that are referred to us, directly by you. Please note that negative carry over is applicable to 2nd tier earnings.
9.8. We retain the right to pass on any financial costs to your account that we may incur due to fraudulent activity actioned by players that you get to sign up at the casino.
9.9. A charge back is when a credit cardholder discovers irregular transactions made on his/her Credit/Debit Card that were not authorized by him/her. The credit card holder can request his/her bank to reverse these charges. Charge backs relate to fraudulent use by a third party of the credit card holder's card or card number.
9.10. Should the player process a charge back, the accumulated revenue generated by yourself for the charge back period from that player will be forfeited and therefore deducted from the total balance due to you for the current month. With regards to Charge backs, because the amount charged back by the player affects the revenue of the casino, it affects what we pay the Affiliate as well, as the agreement states that the Affiliate is only paid on the net revenue that he/she generates.
9.11. Should the deduction of the charge back amount exceed your current amount due, your balance will then revert to a negative balance, and you will have to work your way back to zero before you can start earning revenue again.
9.12. Unlike with a player making a big win, which only lasts one month, a charge back will stay due until the revenue generated by your other players has covered the amount due.
9.13. We understand that this might be frustrating to the Affiliates, but it has to be made clear that the casino can only pay out a percentage of their profits, not fraudulent revenue.
10.1. We will pay you referral fees on a monthly basis, within the first 5 working days of each month for any fees earned by you in the previous month.
10.2. For affiliates using either check or ACH as the payment option; balances of less than $100 outstanding will be withheld until such time as the balance exceeds $100 at the end of the month.
11.1. You shall defend, indemnify, and hold our Clients and their electronic cash provider, their directors, officers, employees, and representatives harmless from and against any and all liabilities, losses, damages, and costs, including reasonable attorney's fees, resulting from, arising out of, or in any way connected with :
a) any breach by you of any warranty, representation, or agreement contained in this Agreement,
b) the performance of your duties and obligations under this Agreement,
c) your negligence or
d) any injury caused directly or indirectly by your negligent or intentional acts or omissions, or the unauthorized use of our banners and link or this referral program.
12.1. We make no express or implied warranties or representations with respect to the referral program, Vegas Partner or referral fee payment arrangements (including, without limitation, their functionality, warranties of fitness, merchantability, legality, non-infringement, or any implied warranties arising out of a course of performance, dealing, or trade usage). In addition, we make no representation that the operation of our site will be uninterrupted or error-free and will not be liable for the consequences of any interruptions or errors.
13. Limitation of Liability
13.1. We will not be liable for indirect, special, or consequential damages (or any loss of revenue, profits, or data) arising in connection with this Agreement or the referral program, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Further, our aggregate liability arising with respect to this Agreement and the Program will not exceed the total referral fees paid or payable to you under this Agreement.
13.2. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to provide any rights, remedies or benefits to any person or entity not a party to this Agreement. Our obligations under this Agreement do not constitute personal obligations of our directors, officers or shareholders. Any liability arising under this Agreement shall be satisfied solely from the referral fee generated and is limited to direct damages.
14. Assignability and Enurement
14.1. You may not assign this Agreement, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. Subject to that restriction, this Agreement will be binding on, inure to the benefit of, and enforceable against you and us and our respective successors and assigns.
15.1. Our failure to enforce your strict performance of any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of our right to subsequently enforce such provision or any other provision of this Agreement. NO MODIFICATIONS, ADDITIONS, DELETIONS OR INTERLINEATIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT ARE PERMITTED OR WILL BE RECOGNIZED BY US. None of our employees, officers or agents may verbally alter, modify or waive any provision of this Agreement.
16.1. Our rights and remedies hereunder shall not be mutually exclusive, i.e., the exercise of one or more of the provisions of this Agreement shall not preclude the exercise of any other provision. You acknowledge, confirm, and agree that damages may be inadequate for a breach or a threatened breach of this Agreement and, in the event of a breach or threatened breach of any provision of this Agreement, the respective rights and obligations of the parties may be enforceable by specific performance, injunction, or other equitable remedy. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall limit or affect any of our rights at law, or otherwise, for a breach or threatened breach of any provision of this Agreement, it being the intent of this provision to make clear that our respective rights and obligations shall be enforceable in equity as well as at law or otherwise.
17.1. Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such a manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law but, if any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such provision will be ineffective only to the extent of such invalidity, or unenforceability, without invalidating the remainder of this Agreement or any provision hereof. No waiver will be implied from conduct or failure to enforce any rights and must be in writing to be effective.
