BY LINKING TO EARN UNITED CASINO CLIENTS, YOU ARE DEEMED TO HAVE AGREED TO BE BOUND BY ALL THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SET OUT IN THIS AGREEMENT.
1. Our Rights and Obligations
1.1 Register your Customers
We will register your customers and will track their play through our client's data technology transfers. We reserve the right to refuse customers (or to close their accounts) if necessary to comply with any requirements we may periodically establish. ("Customer" means your customers that use the link from your site to any one of our clients and open an account with them. By opening an account with one of our clients, they will become a Customer and, accordingly, all Earn United rules, policies, and operating procedures will apply to them.)
1.2 Track Customers' Play
We will track players play and will provide you with remote online access to reports of customer activity and the referral fees generated.
1.3 Pay a Referral Fee
We will pay you referral fees on the NET GAMING REVENUE (defined below) or CPA, that our client's earn from players directed from your site after they open an account with them and wager for real money.
We may modify any of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, at any time and in our sole discretion, by posting a change notice or a new agreement on our site which we will notify you of. Modifications may include, for example, changes in the scope of available referral fees, fee schedules, and Profit Sharing 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 (WHICH WE WILL NOTIFY YOU OF) WILL CONSTITUTE BINDING ACCEPTANCE OF THE CHANGE.
2. Your Rights and Obligations
2.1 Linking to the casino clients
By agreeing to participate in this affiliation Program, you agree to create a unique link from your site to one of the Casino clients. You may link to any of our clients with one of their provided banners or with a text link. With our written permission, you may link directly to an available client downloadable .exe file. These are the only methods by which you may advertise on our behalf, unless otherwise noted in our Marketing Tools section. We will terminate this agreement immediately if there is any form of spamming or if you advertise our casino in any other unauthorized way. You shall not make any claims, representations, or warranties in connection with us and you shall have no authority to, and shall not, bind us to any obligations.
2.2 Agency Appointment
By this Agreement, we grant you the non-exclusive right to direct customers to our client's sites and services, in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. This Agreement does not grant you an exclusive right or privilege to assist us in the provision of services arising from your referrals, and we obviously intend to contract with and obtain the assistance from others at any time to perform services of the same or similar nature as yours. You shall have no claims to referral fees or other compensation on business secured by or through persons or entities other than you.
2.3 Approved Layouts
Without our prior written approval, you will only use our approved banners and offers and will not alter their appearance. The appearance and syntax of the hypertext transfer link are designed and designated by Earn United and constitute the only authorized and permitted representation of our client's sites or softwares. You may only use banners from Earn United that have been uploaded to your server, unless otherwise provided for in our Marketing Tools section.
2.4 Good Faith
You will not knowingly benefit from known or suspected traffic not generated in good faith whether or not it actually causes us damage. We reserve the right to retain all amounts due to you under this Agreement if we have reasonable cause to believe that such traffic has been caused with your knowledge. Even if you have not knowingly generated such traffic, we reserve the right to withhold referral fees with respect to such traffic.
2.5 Responsibility for Your Site
You will be solely responsible for the development, operation, and maintenance of your site and for all materials that appear on your site. For example, you will be solely responsible for ensuring that materials posted on your site are not libelous or otherwise illegal. We disclaim all liability for these matters. Further, you will indemnify and hold us harmless from all claims, damages, and expenses (including, without limitation, attorneys' fees) relating to the development, operation, maintenance, and contents of your site.
2.6 License to use Marks
We hereby grant to you a non-exclusive, non-transferable license, during the term of this Agreement, to use Earn United and its client's intellectual-property marks (licensed, in turn by us, from their owner) solely in connection with the display of the banners on your site. 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. You shall not assert the invalidity, unenforceability, or contest the ownership of the marks in any action or proceeding of whatever kind or nature, and shall not take any action that may prejudice our or our licensor's rights in the marks, render the same generic, or otherwise weaken their validity or diminish their associated goodwill.
2.8 Confidential Information
During the term of this Agreement, you may be entrusted with Confidential Information relating to the business, operations, or underlying technology of Earn United and/or the Profit Sharing 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.
3. Commission Fee Schedule
3a. Revenue Share
Affiliates will earn revenue sharing referral fees based on the NET GAMING REVENUE of the client for your affiliate account's referrals. NGR is calculated as follows: WAGER LOSSES - WAGER WINNINGS + Poker RAKE = NET WIN - [PLAYER BONUSES + FEES + CHARGEBACKS]. Earn United pays a standard 25% to 40% referral fee on NGR generated by the affiliate. There no other fees or deductions are made on to the affiliate commission. Processing fees and security reserves are absorbed by Earn United.
3b. Cost per Acquisition (CPA)
Affiliates will earn a fixed referral fee based on each new depositing customer of $100 or more. All CPA accounts remain on probation for the first three (3) consecutive, active months and are subject to revert reactively to Revenue Share accounts and/or to account termination with the probation period. No other fees or deductions made on affiliate commissions. All processing fees and security reserves are absorbed by Earn United.
Note: Earn United does not automatically make commission payments less than $100 per payment. If $100 in Affiliate Commissions are not achieved in any given month, the earned amount will be carried over to the next calendar month and continue to accumulate until $100 is generated. Any affiliate that wants to receive payments under $100, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request your payment via NETeller (only) within +/- 72hrs of the first day of each month.
A chargeback is defined as uncollectible receivable usually, but not limited to, VISA/MASTERCARD as a result of customer non payment or fraudulent credit card use. Fraud is defined as an uncollectible credit card charge because of fraudulent activity. Earn United now absorbs all costs and fees associated with chargebacks and fraud.
3.2 Multiple Accounts
Affiliates are allowed to have multiple reseller accounts. The total amount payable will be the mathematical sum of the individual accounts. (E.g. if one account carries a negative balance it will be deducted from total payable.)
4. Fee Payment
We will pay you referral and bounty fees on a monthly basis, by the 15th day of each month. All payments will be due and paid in United States dollars. If the account is in a negative position (e.g. because customer winnings have exceeded customer losses) the negative position will be carried over into the following month(s).
5. Term and Termination
5.1 The term of this Agreement will begin when you create a unique link to our site and will be continuous unless and until either party notifies the other in writing that it wishes to terminate the Agreement, in which case this Agreement may be terminated immediately. TERMINATION IS AT WILL, FOR ANY REASON, BY EITHER PARTY. For purposes of notification of termination, delivery via e-mail is considered a written and immediate form of notification. If in any given consecutive 3 months you send neither new visitors nor new deposits to Earn United, your account will be automatically terminated. No email notification will be sent.
5.2 Upon termination:
You must remove all of our client's banners/icons from your site and disable the link from your site to our client' sites. All rights and licenses given to you in this Agreement shall immediately terminate.
You will be entitled only to those unpaid referral fees, if any, earned by you on or prior to the date of termination. You will not be entitled to referral fees with respect to play occurring after the date of termination.
If you have failed to fulfill your obligations and responsibilities, we will not pay you the referral fees otherwise owing to you on termination. We may withhold your final payment for a reasonable time to ensure that the correct amount is paid.
If client's continue to permit play from customers after termination, this will not constitute a continuation or renewal of this Agreement or a waiver of termination.
5.3 Confidential Information
WE MAY TERMINATE THIS AGREEMENT IF WE DETERMINE (IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION) THAT YOUR SITE IS UNSUITABLE. Unsuitable sites include those that: are aimed at children, display child pornography or other illegal sexual acts, promote violence, promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age, promote illegal activities, violate intellectual property rights.
5.4 Commercial Use Only.
This Marketing opportunity is for commercial use only, and you, your family members, friends, associates may not make purchases, directly or indirectly, through your Tracker for your own personal use or to fraudulently increase the Marketing Fees payables to you. If you wish to make test transactions to evaluate the system, including Purchases, please contact email@example.com prior to the transaction, so we can record and refund the charges once you have completed your testing. Transactions made in violation of this provision will be deemed Fraud Traffic and we will deduct such Purchases or traffic from your Marketing Fees.
6. 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 paragraph.
You shall defend, indemnify, and hold EarnUnited.com, 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 client's banners and link or this Profit Sharing Program.
We make no express or implied warranties or representations with respect to the Profit Sharing Program, Earn United 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 or our client's sites/softwares will be uninterrupted or error-free and will not be liable for the consequences of any interruptions or errors.
9. 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 Profit Sharing 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. 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. Any liability arising under this Agreement shall be satisfied solely from the referral fee generated and is limited to direct damages.

YOU HAVE INDEPENDENTLY EVALUATED THE DESIRABILITY OF PARTICIPATING IN THIS PROFIT SHARING PROGRAM AND ARE NOT RELYING ON ANY REPRESENTATION, GUARANTEE, OR STATEMENT OTHER THAN AS SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT.

None of our employees, officers or agents may verbally alter, modify or waive any provision of this Agreement.

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.
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.
