The Affiliate will ensure that marketing communications, particularly in relation to free bet and bonus offers do not amount to or involve misleading actions or misleading omissions. Marketing communications that include a promotion must provide as such information about significant conditions as practicable within the advert itself, and with sufficient prominence. Where the advert is genuinely limited by space (banner advertisement) significant conditions must be displayed no further than one click away from the advert itself. Examples of free bet or bonus offers which may not comply with legislation include: the promotion does not provide supporting information on the terms and conditions of the offer or provides it with insufficient prominence for example only visible once scrolled down; when clicked, advertising banners take a customer direct to the join or login section of the website, without providing terms and conditions of the offer; significant information may only be available 'below the fold' on a web page or email and a customer may only be aware that terms and conditions apply if they actively scroll to the end of a webpage or similar. The above requirements are applicable to all forms of marketing communication, including social media and other forms of advertising such as newspapers. We reserve the right to terminate the Agreement if, in our reasonable opinion, you have breached the gambling advertising rules as defined by Committees of Advertising Practice (CAP and BCAP) and upheld by the Advertising Standards Authority.
6.6 For the purpose of the services to be delivered under this Agreement, it is understood that the Affiliate shall not have access to any Personal Data.

6.6.2. The Affiliate and any Sub-Affiliate shall comply with all the applicable Gaming laws and regulations and all the Data Protection laws and regulations, including but not limited to the European Directive 2002/58/EC, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 (as amended or updated from time to time) and any legislation and/or binding regulations implementing or made pursuant to them ("Data Protection Requirements").

7.1 The Company agrees to pay the Affiliate the Commission. The Commission shall be deemed to be inclusive of value added tax or any other applicable tax. The Affiliate shall be entitled to receive the Commission exclusively in respect of New Customers.
7.2 The Commission is calculated at the end of each month and payments shall be made by the 30th of the following calendar month, provided that the amount due exceeds €100 (the "Minimum Threshold"). If the balance due is less than the Minimum Threshold, it shall be accumulated and carried over to the following month and shall be payable when the total Commissions collectively exceeds the Minimum Threshold.
7.3 Payment of Commissions shall be made in accordance with the payment method chosen by the Affiliate in the Affiliate Application. If an error is made in the calculation of the Commission, the Company reserves the right to correct such calculation at any time and will immediately pay out underpayment or reclaim overpayment made to the Affiliate.
7.4 In the calculation of Commission where Net Revenue is negative due to Customer winnings and/ or administration fees and/ or cash items and/ or progressive contributions the said balance will be set to zero. A negative balance due to fraud costs will however be carried over.
7.5 Furthermore, if the Affiliate does not generate any New Customers for a period of 6 months, the Company, in its sole discretion, may introduce negative carry over.
7.6 High Roller Policy; Negative Commissionable revenue generated in any given month by any Players who the Company, in its sole discretion, determine to be "High Rollers" will be carried forward and offset against future commissionable revenue generated by Players referred by the Affiliate until such negative commissionable revenue is cleared. The determination of the criteria to categorize a Player as "High Roller" shall be in the Company's sole discretion, and the Company's sole responsibility in this regard shall be to advise the Affiliate of the categorisation of any Players referred by the Affiliate as the same by way of amendment to these terms and conditions. Current criteria for determining the High Roller policy are:
7.6.1. if in any given month a player generates negative commissionable revenue of at least €5,000, and the aggregate commissionable revenue in that month (for the casino) for that Affiliate is negative, then such Player shall be deemed to be a High Roller;
7.6.2. if both of the above criteria are met (7.6.1) 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;
7.6.3. the negative balance carried forward cannot be set-off against other players' positive commissionable revenue;
7.6.4. the negative balance carried forward cannot be greater than the total aggregate negative commissionable revenue for the affiliate, for that month;
7.6.5. if there is more than one High Roller, the negative balance carried forward will be split proportionally between them;
7.6.6. The negative balance of a High Roller will be reduced by future positive commissionable revenue that they generate in subsequent months;
7.7 In case of overpayment, the Company reserves, without prejudice to any other rights, the right to request that the Affiliate refunds the difference, or deduct the corresponding amount of overpayment to the Affiliate from the following month's Commission, and each month thereafter, until the debt is repaid in full.
7.8 In case of underpayment, the Company reserves, without prejudice to any other rights, the right to add the corresponding amount of underpayment to the Affiliate's Commission in the following calendar month.
7.9 The Affiliate's acceptance of the payment of the Commission shall be deemed to constitute the full and final settlement of the balance due for the relevant period.
7.10 If the Affiliate disagrees with the balance due as reported, it shall notify the Company within thirty (30) days from the date of payment and state the reasons of the disagreement. Failure to notify the Company within the prescribed time limit shall be deemed to be considered as an irrevocable acknowledgment of the balance due for the period indicated.
7.11 The Company may in its sole discretion withhold the payment of any balance to the Affiliate for up to one hundred-and-eighty (180) days if the Company needs to investigate and verify that the relevant transactions comply with the provisions of the Agreement.
7.12 No payment shall be due if the Company has reasons to believe that the traffic generated by the Affiliate is illegal or is in breach of any of the provisions of the Agreement.
7.13 The Affiliate agrees to return all Commissions received based on fraudulent or falsified transactions and indemnify the Company for all costs and losses incurred in relation to such transactions (including, but without limitation, legal fees and costs).
7.14 The Company reserves the right to set limits for a minimum level of activity on Affiliate's accounts. Such minimum activity levels will be continuously reviewed and the Company reserves the right to terminate any agreement not reaching the limit. Such limit shall not be unreasonably high and basically reflect the intention of avoiding accounts where the revenue does not cover the Company's internal costs for maintaining the account and the payout procedure.
7.15 The Affiliate shall have the sole responsibility to pay any and all taxes, levies, fees, charges and any other money payable or due both locally and abroad (if any) to any tax authority, department or other competent entity as a result of the compensation generated under this Agreement.

7.16 The Affiliate is responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the payment details in its account and/or as specified on its invoices. Any payment(s) made via the payment details listed in the Affiliate Account will be considered as payment made by the Company. Any cost incurred by the Company resulting from incorrect payment details provided by the Affiliate will be deducted from the Commission due to the Affiliate in the next monthly payment cycle in which there is a payment due to the Affiliate.
8. Affiliate Website(s) and the Links
8.1 The Affiliate expressly acknowledges and agrees that the use of the Internet and the Affiliate Program is at the Affiliate's own risk. The Company makes no guarantee in relation to the accessibility of the Website(s) at any particular time or any particular location.

8.5 The Affiliate Website shall have at least an opt-in facility for the Customers to subscribe to the receipt of Advertising Material from the Affiliate via SMS or email. This is preferably done on a double opt-in basis. Should this facility be missing from the Affiliate's end, any Advertising Material sent to the Customers would be considered as spam. In the event that PlayFrank receives any complaints from Customers about spam, the Affiliate may be required by the Company to provide proof that the opt-in function has been provided to the Customer. Without prejudice, the Company reserves the right to freeze the Affiliate's account as provided under article 6.2(g) of this agreement.

15.8 Neither party shall be liable to the other for any delay or failure to perform its obligations under this Agreement if such delay or failure arises from a cause beyond its reasonable control, including but not limited to labour disputes, strikes, industrial disturbances, acts of God, acts of terrorism, floods, lightning, utility or communications failures, earthquakes or other casualty. If such event occurs, the non-performing Party is excused from whatever performance is prevented by the event to the extent prevented provided that if the force majeure event subsists for a period exceeding thirty (30) days then either Party may terminate this Agreement with immediate effect by providing a written notice.
15.9 Unless otherwise expressly agreed, this Agreement shall constitute the entire agreement and understanding superseding any agreement between the Parties. In case of conflict between this Agreement and any other Agreements entered into between the Company and the Affiliate, the contents of this Agreement shall prevail. Each Party acknowledges and agrees that by entering into this Agreement, it does not rely on, and shall have no remedy in respect of, any statement, representation, warranty, understanding, promise or assurance (whether negligently or innocently made) of any person (whether Party in this Agreement or not) other than as expressly set out in this Agreement. Nothing in this article shall operate to limit or exclude any liability for fraud.
