For the avoidance of doubt, the Marketing Partner will not be entitled to receive any commission for revenues generated by any players not generated via the Marketing Partner’s tracker URL, or already registered on the Operator’s Website(s) except as set out in the payment plans the Marketing Partner has chosen for the Operator’s Website(s) and which form part of the AdmiralBet Partners Programme. Furthermore, any acquisition of players generated via fraud traffic (as defined in Section 7.), if so considered at the Programme Partner’s sole discretion, will be not taken into account for the purposes of the commission.
8.5. The Operator reserves the right to change a Marketing Partner’s commission payment plan as regards future referrals, and if existing user referrals are needed, for justified reasons including, but not limited to:
iii. suspicious fraudulent activity;
provided that this change is notified to the Marketing Partner via the provided contact e-mail address.
8.6. The Marketing Partner understands that when it chooses the Revenue Share Payment Plan, the revenue per user is the amount that each referred player’s account is debited with as consideration of the referred player’s participation in the games, minus the amount of bonus money that the respective user has converted into winnings when wagering such amounts in games or tournaments on the Operator’s Website(s). The flat fee percentage as “Handling fee” (in particular chargebacks, service costs, transaction costs, taxes due on the offering of games, licence costs, fees to be paid to third parties’ software and service providers, marketing costs, etc.) is deducted from such an amount. The remainder is considered as the commission base and is the basis for calculation of the revenue share.
8.7. Revenue share payment plans may include an expiry period, meaning that a period of time will be stipulated in the Revenue Share Payment Plan during which the actions of the referred users will be included in the commission. Any actions by the referred user after the stipulated expiry period will not form part of the Revenue Share Payment Plan. The stipulated expiry period starts from the date of the user’s registration under the Marketing Partner’s referred tracker. For the avoidance of doubt, the expiry period, if stipulated, is mentioned in the commission visible in the AdmiralBet Partners Programme Software.
8.8. In the event that suspicions are raised as to the use of fraudulent elements in order to raise a particular commission, the Programme Partner may withhold payment of that commission and all future commission until it is satisfied that no fraudulent methods were used. Where fraudulent methods have in fact been used, payment of such commission shall not therefore take place and the Marketing Partner’s agreement shall be terminated immediately.
8.9. The commission shall be paid to the Marketing Partner by the Programme Partner and shall – if possible – be credited via the chosen payment method of the Marketing Partner within fifteen (15) days from the Commission Calculation Date. If the payment method or the Marketing Partner company information (including, but not limited to, Company legal name, VAT number, address) is changed by the Marketing Partner within a period of 24 hours before the Commission Calculation Date, the payment will be delayed and made on the next Commission Calculation Date. The Programme Partner shall not be held liable for any delay caused by technical reasons and events which are beyond the Programme Partner’s and/or the Operator’s reasonable control.
8.10. The commission can only be paid out if the credit has reached a minimum amount of fifty euros (EUR 50.00-). If this requirement is not met, the commission shall be carried over until a total of fifty euros (EUR 50.00-) has been accumulated.
8.11. General clarification as to the minimum amount and commission: if a Marketing Partner is awarded a hybrid plan, or covering the duration of the Marketing Partner participation, and the Marketing Partner had multiple deals of standalone CPA plans and revenue share plans, the Marketing Partner’s commission total is based on the totals of the CPA component of the payment plan and the revenue share components of the payment plan collectively.
8.12. Negative revenues will be balanced to zero and will not be carried over to the next period of commission calculation (no negative revenue carry over), with the exception of bonus money and other deductions.
8.13. All taxes due in connection with any payments to the Marketing Partner shall remain the Marketing Partner’s sole liability at all times. The Marketing Partner is responsible for complying with any rules governing the registration for and payment of income tax and similar taxes in respect of the Marketing Partner’s income from this agreement and for collecting and paying the income tax and social security contributions in respect of the Marketing Partner’s staff, if the Marketing Partner has any staff. If Value-Added Tax (VAT) or any other sales tax, gaming tax or turnover tax is chargeable, the Marketing Partner is responsible for complying with any rules for registering for tax and collecting and paying tax in the country where the services are provided and the Marketing Partner acknowledges that the payments that it receives shall be deemed to include all VAT or sales tax or turnover tax.
8.14. The Marketing Partner shall comply with all applicable laws and any policy notified by the Programme Partner through the Operator’s Website or otherwise in relation to money laundering and/or the proceeds of crime.
8.15. The standard commission is to be paid based on self-billed invoices. Should a Marketing Partner activity statement instead be required and, upon such request, be accepted by the Programme Partner, payment may only be made upon presentation of the invoice no later than 15 days after the specific Commission Calculation Date. Upon approval by the Programme Partner, the payment will be credited after fifteen (15) days and paid according to the payment method stated on the invoice.
8.16. Bank charges for international money transfers are settled on a shared cost basis. The Programme Partner will pay the fees for the payment order, while the Marketing Partner will pay the charges of any intermediary bank (and those of their own bank, if any). The intermediary bank fees are deducted from the amount transferred to the Marketing Partner.

9.1. Intellectual Property Rights means rights to all existing and future patents, trademarks, design rights, service marks, trademarks, trade or business names (including domain names), registered designs, copyright (including rights in computer software), moral rights, database rights, format rights and topography rights (whether or not any of these is or are registered, and including applications for registration), know-how, trade secrets and rights of confidence and all rights and forms of protection throughout the world of a similar nature or with similar effect to any of these for the full unexpired period of any such rights and any extensions and/or renewals thereof, including the words “ADMIRALBET” (in any capitalisation, font or format) and/or any logo, mark, domain name or trade name that contains, is confusingly similar to or comprises the Operator’s marks (or parts thereof), or any other name or mark owned from time to time by the Operator or any third party.

Termination of the agreement will end the Marketing Partner’s participation in the AdmiralBet Partners Programme as a whole. Immediately upon termination:

11. Policies and Confidentiality
11.1. The Programme Partner hereby grants the Marketing Partner a non-exclusive, revocable, non-transferable licence, during the term of this agreement, to use any IP with regards to the approved marketing materials for the display on the Marketing Partner Website and for the sole purpose of the agreement.

11.6. When a Player opens an account on the Operator’s Website, that person will become the Operator’s customer and, accordingly, all website terms and conditions will apply to them.
11.7. The Marketing Partner may receive confidential information from the Programme Partner, including confidential information as to the Operator’s marketing plans, marketing concepts, structure, payments and other information relating to the Operator’s business operations. This information is confidential to the Operator and constitutes part of the Operator’s proprietary trade secrets.

The Marketing Partner irrevocably agrees that, except as provided for below, the courts of Malta shall have exclusive jurisdiction to determine any claim, dispute or matter arising out of, or in connection with, or concerning this agreement or its enforceability, and the Marketing Partner waives any objection to proceedings in such courts on the grounds of jurisdiction or on the grounds that proceedings have been brought in an inconvenient forum. Nothing in this clause shall limit the right of the Programme Partner to take proceedings against the Marketing Partner in any other court of competent jurisdiction, nor shall the taking of proceedings in any one or more jurisdictions preclude the taking of proceedings in any other jurisdictions, whether concurrently or not, to the extent permitted by the law of such other jurisdictions.
12.7. Severability. Whenever possible, each provision of this agreement will be interpreted in such a manner as to be effective and valid under the applicable law. However, if any provision of these T&Cs 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 other provision hereof.
12.8. Entire Agreement. This agreement and the Marketing Partner sign-up form embody the complete agreement and the parties’ understanding with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes any prior or subsequent oral or written agreement or understanding between the parties in relation to such subject matter, except regarding modifications to this agreement provided by the Programme Partner to the Marketing Partner in accordance with Section 3 above. Each of the parties acknowledges and agrees that, in entering into this agreement, it has not relied on any statement, representation, guarantee or warranty, understanding, undertaking, promise or assurance (whether negligently or unknowingly made) by any person (whether party to this agreement or not), other than as expressly set out in the agreement. Each party irrevocably and unconditionally waives all claims, rights and remedies that, but for this clause, it may otherwise have had in relation to any of the foregoing. Nothing in this section shall limit or exclude any liability for fraud.

12.10. The Marketing Partner shall defend, indemnify and hold AdmiralBet Programme Marketing Partner and the Programme Partner’s officers, directors, employees and representatives harmless, upon request, from and against any and all claims, demands, liabilities, losses, damages, costs and expenses (including reasonable legal fees) resulting or arising (directly or indirectly) from the Marketing Partner’s breach of this agreement.
12.11. The Programme Partner’s obligations under this agreement do not constitute personal obligations of the owners, directors, officers, agents, employees, vendors or suppliers of the Operator’s Website(s) or services, other than as provided under this agreement. Other than as expressly provided in these T&Cs, in no event will the Programme Partner be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential or punitive loss, injury or damage of any kind (regardless of whether the Programme Partner has been advised of the possibility of such loss), including any loss of business, revenue, profits or data. The Programme Partner’s liability under this agreement, whether contractual or for breach of statutory duty, or in any other sense, shall only be for direct damages and shall not exceed the revenues generated and payable to the Marketing Partner in relation to the Operator’s Website(s) forming the object of the dispute to over the previous twelve (12) months, at the time that the event giving rise to liability arises. However, nothing in this agreement will function to exclude or limit either party’s liability for death or personal injury arising as a result of that party’s negligence or for fraud.
These constitute all the stipulated clauses of the Terms and Conditions for the AdmiralBet Partners Programme. Should there be any queries, please contact us.
