1.Term Of The Agreement:
This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to an individual's or entity's participation in the Strategic Betting Affiliates Program (the 'Program'). As used in this Agreement, 'We' means Strategic Betting. 'You' or 'Affiliate' means the applicant. 'Sub-affiliate' means an affiliate recruited by you using a link to our site. 'Services' means the services offered by Strategic Betting. 'Site' means a website and depending on the context, refers either to a Strategic Betting site or to the site that you will link to our site. 'Link' means a link provided by Strategic Betting, which directs the customer's web browser to our site. 'New and unique' refers to a purchase where that customer's details and paypal account have not previously been used to purchase a particular service or product from Strategic Betting.
The term of this Agreement will begin upon our acceptance of your Affiliate application and will end when terminated by either party.
Either you or we may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause, by giving the other party written notice of termination. You are only eligible to earn referral fees on sales occurring during the term. Your site is subject to periodic review. If we determine at any point after acceptance into our Program that your site is not suitable for the Program, we may unilaterally end the status of your site as an Affiliate.
2. Modification Of The Agreement:
We may modify any of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, at any time and at our sole discretion, by posting a change notice or a new agreement on this site. Modifications may include, for example, changes in the scope of available referral fees, fee schedules, payment procedures and Program rules.
If any modification is unacceptable to you, your only recourse is to terminate this agreement. Your continued participation in the program following our posting of a change notice or new agreement on our site will constitute binding acceptance of the change.
3. Limitation Of Liability:
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 Program, or the purchase of products or services by customers referred to us by you, 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.
4. Independent Investigation:
You acknowledge that you have read this agreement and agree to all its terms and conditions. You understand that we may at any time, directly or indirectly solicit customer referrals on terms that may differ from those contained in this agreement or operate web sites that are similar to or compete with your web site. You have independently evaluated the desirability of participating in the program and are not relying on any representation, guarantee or statement other than as set forth in this agreement.
5. Referral Commissions and Payments Procedures:
The amount of referral commissions due to affiliates for successful 'new and unique' customers purchases where that customer was referred from your site or the site of one of your sub affiliates will be as follows:
- Membership Referral Rate
- Full Service Monthly Commission Rate 25% of recurring monthly subscription
- Full Service Quarterly Commission Rate 25% of recurring quarterly subscription
- Full Service Annual Rate £150.00 of recurring annual subscription
- Sub Affiliate Referral Rate
- Monthly 25% of the referring affiliates recurring commission amount
- Quarterly 25% of the referring affiliates recurring commission amount
- Annual 25% of the referring affiliates recurring commission amount
Any changes to the above commission rates will be emailed to you and will apply immediately.
Commissions are inclusive of VAT where applicable.
A commission will only be credited to an affiliate after the customer has made full payment to us. If it is later determined by Strategic Betting that the purchase was not 'unique' or If a customer later requests a refund or a charge back is issued by the credit/debit card company whose card was used to pay for that customer's purchase then any commissions that were credited to both first tier and second tier affiliates will be deducted from the next monthly payment. If there is no next monthly payment due and commissions owed to you become less than the total deductions due to refunds as mentioned above then the affiliate will be billed and hereby agrees to be bound by law to reimburse us in full immediately for any such commissions. Payments will be issued via Pay Pal only and made payable to the affiliate in the name the affiliate submits in his or her online registration, and emailed to the email address provided by the affiliate. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you will be paid your commission at the end of each month. Affiliates must have accumulated commissions of at least £51 for a given payment period before a payment will be issued. If commissions are less than £51 for a given month, the commissions will be held over till the next month. This will continue until the commissions accumulate to more than £51.
6. Tracking of Sales:
We are solely responsible for tracking sales using special software that communicates with the specially encoded URLs assigned to affiliates. We will endeavour to do our best to ensure accurate tracking of referrals made by affiliates. Affiliates will themselves be solely responsible for ensuring that these special URLs are formatted properly, a necessary prerequisite to accurate tracking of referral sales. Notwithstanding the above statement of responsibility by us to track sales, affiliates hereby acknowledge and accept that the tracking system employed by us is not 100% fail-safe and that there may on occasion be instances of referral sales made that are not credited to an affiliate for any number of possible reasons, some of which might be: Failure by the affiliate to use the proper format of the specially assigned URL in promotions, web page links, banner ads, and so on; deliberate or accidental actions by customers to circumvent an affiliate's special URL so that our software is unable to accurately track that sale; bugs, glitches or crashes of the tracking software that render it unable to accurately track sales for a period of time; acts of a nature that cause irretrievable data loss on the computers and back-up disk media that store the commission information. As such, affiliates will not hold us liable to compensate for any claimed commissions that were not tracked and recorded by the tracking software. We will pay referral fees on any future sales after the customer has re-entered our site through the use of a cookie placed on the end user computer. If, through no fault of ours, the cookie is removed or not allowed by the end user, that customer's purchase may be tracked only if customer enters our site directly through a link from your site.
The cookie will expire at the end of 3 years.
7. Relationship of Parties:
You and we are independent contractors, and nothing in this Agreement will create any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative, or employment relationship between the parties.
You will have no authority to make or accept any offers or representations on our behalf. You will not make any statement, whether on your site or otherwise, that reasonably would contradict anything in this section.
