For purposes of clarity, the terms "we" and "us" refer to Matchbook Affiliates and "you" and "Member" refers to the other party to the contract formed by the acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.

“With respect to any Visitors located in the UK, you acknowledge the licensing objectives of the Gambling Commission and understand that the Merchant is bound by these objectives. These licensing objectives are:

·         prevent gambling from being a source of crime and/or disorder, or from being associated with crime or disorder and/or from being used to support crime.

·         ensure that gambling is conducted in a fair and open way.

·         protect children and other vulnerable persons from being harmed and/or exploited by gambling.

To enrol please read this Agreement and then submit a complete Matchbook Affiliates Member Account application to us via our website: . We will evaluate your application and notify you whether your application was accepted. Your application will be rejected if we determine, in our sole discretion, that your site is unsuitable for any reason, including but not limited to, sites that are under construction, aimed at children, promote sexually explicit materials, promote violence, promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age, promote illegal activities, or violate intellectual property rights.


During the term of this Agreement, you shall be entitled to display banners or links provided by Matchbook Affiliates on your site(s) (the "Member Site") as a hyperlink to direct Visitors from the Member Site to the Merchant's Sites, using distinct URLs supplied by Matchbook Affiliates exclusively for linking (the "Supplied Banners").

The Merchant's banners shall be displayed at least as prominently as any other sales link on the Member site, and if the Member displays or makes accessible to Visitors descriptive information regarding any vendors whose banners are displayed on the Member Site, the Member shall, subject to Matchbook Affiliates’ prior written approval of the content thereof, include similar descriptive information regarding the Merchant's Site.

The relationship specified in this Agreement is non-exclusive for both parties; therefore, the Member shall be entitled to display the banners of, and provide links to, sites of other companies through the Member Site, and Matchbook Affiliates shall be entitled to make the Merchant's banners available through online and other services than the Member Site.


As a Member, you will have access through Matchbook Affiliates’ Site to a variety of graphic and textual links (each of these links sometimes being referred to herein as "Links" or, individual, as a "Link".) Matchbook Affiliates and the Merchant hereby grants to the Member the non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-assignable (except as provided below) rights, during the term of this Agreement, to use (which shall include the right to copy, transmit, distribute, display and perform both privately and publicly) Matchbook Affiliates' and the Merchant's banners, name, site name, and other related textual and graphic material which are made available by Matchbook Affiliates and/or the Merchant to the Member for the express purpose of inclusion on the Member's Site from time to time (collectively, the "Merchant's Material") and for the specific purposes authorised above.

Matchbook Affiliates and the Merchant authorise the Member to advertise and promote their respective promotional material. The copywriting of promotions may not be modified nor misrepresented by the Member. Matchbook Affiliates and the Merchant also authorises the Member to refer, in the Member's advertising and promotions, to the fact that the Matchbook Affiliates and Merchant's Site are accessible through the Member Site, provided that any such statement:

(a) does not include any trademarks, service marks, design marks, symbols and/or other indicia of origin of Matchbook Affiliates or the Merchant other than Matchbook Affiliates or the Merchant's Site(s) name and/or site names in a non-distinctive typeface (specifically, not the typeface used in the logo design of any of Matchbook Affiliates' or the Merchant's mark)

(b) does not state, suggest, or imply, by the wording or prominence of such statement or otherwise, that the Merchant sponsors, authorises, and/or is the source or origin of the Member site; and

(c) does not disparage or criticise Matchbook Affiliates or the Merchant, its products, services, or members.

All use of the Matchbook Affiliates’ or Merchant's Materials hereunder shall inure to the benefit of the Merchant and shall not create any rights, title or interest in them for the Member. No other use of the Matchbook Affiliates or Merchant's names, trademarks, service marks, design marks, symbols and/or other indicia of origin or other designations confusingly similar to any of the foregoing may be made by the Member for any purpose without the prior written approval of Matchbook Affiliates or the Merchant.

As between the Merchant and the Member, the Merchant owns, and shall continue to own exclusively, all right title and interest (including without limitation, all rights provided under the law of copyright and trademark) in and to the Merchant's Materials and all names, trademarks, service marks, design marks, symbols and/or other indicia of origin therein throughout the world and in perpetuity, subject to the permissions granted in this Agreement.


You agree to fully cooperate with us in order to establish and maintain the Links between the Member Site and the Matchbook Affiliates Site or the Merchant's Site(s). The maintenance and updating of the Member Site will be your responsibility. The graphics and/or text associated with the Links to the Matchbook Affiliates Site or the Merchant's Sites will be updated periodically and it will be necessary for you to update the content of the Member Site accordingly on a regular basis. Please be aware that we have the right to monitor the Member Site at any time to determine if you are following the terms and conditions of this Agreement and to notify you of any changes to the Member Site that we feel should be made.


By signing up to Matchbook Affiliates you agree to receive a variety of material from Matchbook Affiliates. If you choose to opt out of our communications, Matchbook Affiliates and its Merchants will not be responsible for any damages that may occur from members opting out of communications.


Any form of spam will result in your account being closed and we reserve the right to withhold all funds held by us or due to you. You need to be aware that our Merchants are liable to incur expenses in dealing with spam-generated mail and these same expenses will be deducted from your account should our Merchant seek recourse. In this instance the amount determined by the relative Merchant will be fair and deemed final and acceptable based on good faith and such amount will be collectable by law and deemed to have been accepted by you as fair and reasonable and as agreed to by registration as an affiliate of Matchbook Affiliates. Should these expenses not be covered by funds in your account we reserve the right to investigate other alternative means for obtaining payment including recourse to file a claim against you for unpaid amounts.


You will not knowingly benefit from known or suspected traffic not generated using accepted Internet marketing practices whether or not it causes Matchbook Affiliates or the Merchant harm. Should fraudulent activity, knowingly or otherwise, arise from a person directed to Merchant's Site via your link, we retain the right to retract the commissions paid to you at any time. Our decision in this regard will be final and no correspondence will be entered into. 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.


You understand and accept that the Merchant may refuse to accept any potential customer and may close any player’s account if, in its sole discretion, it deems it necessary to do so in order to comply with its internal policies or the rules of its regulatory authority or any other applicable law and/or in order to protect its reputation and commercial interests.

Unsuitable sites may include those that: are aimed at children, promote sexually explicit materials, promote violence, promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age, promote illegal activities, or violate intellectual property rights.

For purposes of notification of termination, delivery via e-mail is considered a written and immediate form of notification. Upon termination:

·       - We may withhold your final payment for a reasonable time to ensure that the correct amount is paid.

Termination will not relieve you from any liability arising from any breach of this Agreement which occurred prior to termination.


Neither party will be liable to the other party (nor to any person claiming rights derived from the other party's rights) for incidental, indirect, consequential, special, punitive or exemplary damages of any kind - including lost revenue or profits, loss of business, or loss of data - arising out of this Agreement (including without limitation as a result of any breach of any warranty or other term of this Agreement), regardless of whether the party liable or allegedly liable was advised, had other reason to know, or in fact knew of the possibility thereof.


Except as expressly provided herein, neither party warrants that their respective websites will perform in the manner expected or without interruption, error, or defect, or that any revenue to either party will result from the activities contemplated by this Agreement.

Several sites may be registered to the one account; however, the placement of any site banner on a new site, under the Matchbook Affiliates Members Program, MUST be reported by the Member and cleared by the Matchbook Affiliates Support Team beforehand, and failure to do so may result in the termination of the Member's account. The Member will also forfeit all rights to commissions and referral bonuses.


Matchbook Affiliates and the Member are independent contractors under this Agreement, and nothing herein shall be construed to create a partnership, joint venture, or agency relationship between Matchbook Affiliates and the Member.

In this Schedule 1, the following definitions are used:

“Net Betting Commission” means total commission generated by Matchbook from Referred Customers’ exchange betting activities less adjustments made for any credit card charge-backs or any other reversal of a payment, fraudulent or otherwise voided or modified transactions, bad debt, the cost of any promotional offers (including any sign up bonuses “Bonus Costs”), payments to any sporting bodies (including any football governing bodies or any similar body in any jurisdiction) and liability to any betting duty or licensing fees for data or other duty, tax or expense that may arise;

“Referred Customers” means genuine, bona fide, individual customers referred to the Merchant by the Member’s Site and whose contribution towards Net Revenue will commence at the point where the customer first generates revenue for the Merchant and shall continue for the lifetime of that customer.Affiliates are not permitted to sign up for a Matchbook account via their own affiliate links/banners.

Matchbook Affiliates does not process your payments for commissions; this is the responsibility of the Merchant

The Merchant will pay sums due to the Member, within the industry standard 30 days. For example, Net Betting Commission earned throughout September 2012 will be paid by the end of October 2012.

A Member must generate a minimum of $50 in Net Betting Commission before they will be eligible for a payment via e-wallets Moneybookers(Skrill) and Neteller. A member must generate a minimum of $200 in Net Betting Commission before they will be eligible for a payment via Electronic Transfer. Members will be paid monthly, provided the minimum net commission level is reached. If the minimum level is not reached, the Net Betting Commission that has been earned will carry over into the following month(s) until the point at which the minimum criteria has been fulfilled.

The affiliate acknowledges and agrees that:

·       For new affiliates the commission structure will begin from the date the account has been approved by the Affiliate manager;

·       The affiliate must actively promote Matchbook Casino and/or the Exchange to be eligible to receive revshare across Casino and/or Exchange revenue.

·       In the event the affiliate does not refer 6 or more new depositing players during a period of 6 consecutive months their revshare will decrease to an amount of 5% Net Gaming revenue until such time when they begin to refer 6 or more players in any subsequent month.

·       In the event that the Amount Due for a calendar month is a negative amount, Matchbook may (at its sole discretion), carry and set off such negative amount against Amounts Due for subsequent months that would be payable to you.
