The Operator will verify the Affiliate’s identity through the information provided by the Affiliate and by obtaining information from public sources and data.

  18. 5.1.2For the avoidance of doubt, the Affiliate agrees that the Operator may use any personal information provided by the Affiliate for the purposes of verifying its identity in accordance with clause 17.1.

  19. Minimum Player Quota

    * Note that the percentage of Net Gaming Revenue for 0 new Players will only be payable where the Affiliate has, in any previous calendar month, introduced one or more unique depositing Players. As such, an Affiliate will continue to receive the minimum Revenue Share in respect of previously-introduced Players for such time as those Players continue to bet, or play, on the relevant Site

    * At any time where 3 calendar months have passed without the Affiliate directing any Customers to the Operator’s Sites, the default Revenue Reward set out in the table above and any other Revenue Reward agreed by the parties in writing at any time shall no longer apply and instead shall be set at 5% of all Online Gaming Products and Sportsbook.


    6.7Payment Procedure At the end start of every calendar month, the Operator will  send make available to the Affiliate in his AUAP account a statement of account showing any balance due to the Affiliate (if any)any) in respect of the previous calendar month.  Such statement of account will be deemed to have been accepted and agreed by the Affiliate if the Operator does not receive any comments as to the accuracy of the statement within two weeks of the date of such statement. The Affiliate will be paid its relevant payment under its Payment Plan Reward plan on a calendar monthly basis by way of the Affiliates chosen currency and payment method (where available), provided the amount payable to the Affiliate is not less than (a) US$5 (or equivalent amount in the relevant currency) where the Affiliate is using a MoneyBookers, Web Moneyor , PayPal, Neteller system and/or other e-payment system made available by the Operator; and/or (b) not less than US$200 (or equivalent amount in the relevant currency) where the Affiliate is paid by wire transfer.  If these minimum amounts are not reached in a particular calendar month, the Operator will be entitled to withhold payment and carry the amount due to the Affiliate to the next calendar month and so on, until the minimum amounts are reached. All payments will be due and paid in Euros or in any other currency at the Operator's Operators discretion. The Operator will transfer funds only to the designated account detailed on the Affiliates application form. Third party wire transfers are prohibited by the Operator.

    Security Reserve Funds

    6.10 A rolling security reserve of 8% of all amounts due to the Affiliate may be withheld for up to 6 months from the payment due date.
