ii. “Tracking Mechanism” means the unique hyperlink or other InterPartners approved linking tool for referencing the Sites.
iii. Casino Referral Fees, in relation to any casino Site, shall be calculated as follows:
Casino Referral Fees are calculated, using the percentage fee method and rate(s) applied by InterPartners from time to time, as a percentage of the monthly Net Casino Revenue (as defined below) generated from Referred Users.
If Net Casino Revenue is in a negative position for any reason other than fraud and/or chargebacks, that negative amount will NOT be recovered from you and at the beginning of each month any negative position will be set at zero.
InterPartners has and reserves the right to charge any fraud costs to your account.
“Net Casino Revenue” means Gross Gaming Revenues less (i) promotional cost, (ii) jackpot provision, (iii) licensing fees, (iv) administration fees, (v) chargebacks and fraudulent transactions, and (vi) any other tax, levy or duty that may arise;
“Gross Gaming Revenues” means all money wagered by Referred Users less winnings of Referred Users;
You shall be entitled to a one-off commission based on a number of new depositing players directed to our brands who have successfully met minimum deposit, wagering and/or other requirements as per prior agreement. These amounts are at the discretion of InterPartners and we reserve the right to change these amounts with prior written notice at any time.
InterPartners decision with regards to this will be considered final and no further correspondence will be entered into. Right of admission to the CPA program will be reserved at all times and for any reason. If we determine, in our sole discretion, that you are enrolled in the CPA program to benefit from it by referring players that we deem not legitimately interested in our products or services or of a similar average value to our current players, we reserve the right to terminate your participation in the program with immediate effect. Should this occur, from the moment of your notification, your CPA payment generated on existing or new referred players will be forfeited and considered null and void with no further correspondence entered into.
v. Poker Referral Fees, in relation to any poker Site, shall be calculated as follows:
Poker Referral Fees are calculated, using the percentage fee method and rate(s) applied by InterPartners from time to time, as a percentage of the monthly Net Poker Revenue generated from Referred Users.
If Net Casino Revenue is in a negative position for any reason other than fraud and/or chargebacks, that negative amount will NOT be recovered from you and at the beginning of each month any negative position will be set at zero.
InterPartners has and reserves the right to charge any fraud costs to your account.
“Net Poker Revenue” means the total fees taken by a Property from a Referred User, including poker game rake and poker tournament fees less (i) promotional cost, (ii) licensing fees, (iv) administration fees, (v) chargebacks and fraudulent transactions, and (vi) any other tax, levy or duty that may arise.

12 Payment of Referral Fees
i. You will be required to open an account with an InterPartners approved payment solution provider (the “Payment Account”).
ii. You must provide InterPartners, in writing or email, with such information as it may require in relation to such Payment Account so as to facilitate the transfer of the Referral Fees to your Payment Account with such information as InterPartners may require from time to time. Once a transfer has been completed, it may not be terminated or reversed; provided that InterPartners reserves the right to terminate or reverse a transfer if in our sole discretion it is necessary to do so.
iii. Referral Fees will be transferred to your Payment Account within the first seven working days of the month for activity during the previous month. All payments of Referral Fees into your Payment Account will be made in the currency of your Payment Account. InterPartners may accrue Referral Fees until such amount equals at least $50 (or the equivalent in the applicable currency units.) InterPartners shall be entitled to forthwith reclaim any overpayment.
iv. Acceptance of payment transfer will be deemed full and final settlement of all Referral Fees due for the month (or other payment calculation period) indicated unless you sent us notice of disagreement with the amount payable within twenty (20) days from the date payment is made. The failure to timely send such notice irrevocably waives your right to contest any fees due for the relevant time period and any prior time period.
v. From 1 April 2011 you may no longer use any “ECash” branded electronic cash account as your Payment Account. An Affiliate with an ECash branded Payment Account (“legacy account”) must provided updated Payment Account details to InterPartners by 1 October 2011 and any unclaimed Referral Fees remaining in the legacy account shall be transferred by InterPartners to such updated Payment Account. If you do not claim Referral Fees from your legacy account by 1 October 2011, and if you fail to respond to our reasonable attempts prior to 1 October 2011 to contact you, such remaining unclaimed Referral Fees in the legacy account will be forfeited by you. “Reasonable attempts to contact you” means that we have sent 3 or more emails to you at the email address provided by you to us.
If at any time we detect a level of chargebacks in relation to your Referred Users that is higher than the average level of chargebacks (as compared to other users) within a month, we reserve the right to freeze your Affiliate Account and withhold all Referral Fee payments pending our investigation of such chargebacks. In the event that we determine that you have engaged in any form of unauthorized advertising or promotion, or engaged in any unlawful or bad faith activities (regardless of whether you had knowledge of the same) which have resulted in such chargebacks, we reserve the right to take various actions including, but not limited to, withholding and forfeiting of Referral Fees, charging you for the amount of chargebacks and/or immediately terminating this Agreement
InterPartners may in its sole discretion, with or without notice, use any available means to block or restrict certain Referred Users and/or users, sign ups, deposits or play patterns so as to reduce the number of fraudulent, unprofitable transactions or for any reason whatsoever, including but not limited to daily or monthly purchase limits, address verification or negative and positive credit card databases. InterPartners does not guarantee or warrant the success of such fraud prevention efforts.
14 No Liability
InterPartners will have no liability whatsoever for any claims, damages or expenses which you or any third party may incur or suffer as a result of:
i. the processing, reversal or adjustment of any transfer;
ii. InterPartners’ failure or refusal to process, reverse, or adjust any transfer; and/or
iii. any delay (regardless of the cause) in the processing, reversal or adjustment of any transfer.

Where it has been deemed by us that there has been collusion between affiliates, we reserve the right to take various actions with respect to each of the affiliates in question, including but not limited to, withholding and forfeiting of Referral Fees, charging you for the amount of costs or liabilities incurred in relation to such actions and/or immediately terminating this Agreement. Collusion entails an agreement which occurs between two or more parties to deceive, mislead or defraud others or gain an unfair advantage.

In the event that we determine that you have engaged in any form of unauthorized advertising or promotion, or engaged in any unlawful or bad faith activities (regardless of whether you had knowledge of the same), we reserve the right to take various actions including, but not limited to, withholding and forfeiting of Referral Fees and/or immediately terminating this Agreement. The use of domain names or any bid made by you to any Internet search engine, on keywords related to the Properties including, without limitation, CryptoLogic, WagerLogic InterPartners VIP Casino, InterCasino, InterPoker or Parbet trademarks or words that are confusingly similar, shall be considered to be a breach of the good faith provisions contained in this clause.
