In the event the Company uses a third party for the (partial) roll-out of its affiliate marketing strategy, (including contract negotiation, day-to-day management of the Technical Platform, payment processing, marketing or other activities, this irrespective of the legal capacity of the intermediary, whether as agent, subcontractor or other), the Company is and remains exclusively responsible for the execution of the Agreement.

1.2. The Affiliate acknowledges that promoting or soliciting bets is subject to legal restrictions in some countries and may even be prohibited.  Such restrictions may vary from time to time. The Affiliate shall not enter into this Agreement if it targets any markets where gambling is illegal or where the promotion, marketing or advertising of gambling is illegal. The Affiliate shall be exclusively liable for such actions and shall hold the Company harmless and shall fully indemnify the Company for any liability incurred by the Company If it doesn’t comply with the provision above.

1.3. The Affiliate further confirms that it operates the Site, where the Content will be placed, under its own name and that it is fully and without restrictions authorised to dispose thereof.

This tracking code will identify any New Customers referred by the Affiliate. It is the Affiliate’s responsibility to ensure that any tracking code generated by the Technical Platform is used correctly.

2.2. If a New Customer creates an account with a different brand not promoted by the Content used by the Affiliate, the account will not be linked to the Affiliate.

2.3. Any additional advertising material (of any kind whatsoever) created by the Affiliate and related to the Company shall require the Company’s prior written approval.

6.13. Payments shall be made approximately 10 to 15 Working Days following the end of the month in which the Affiliate’s Commission was earned.

6.14. Affiliates registered for VAT in Malta shall invoice the Company before the 10th Working Day of the month following the month for which the Commission was earned. Failure to submit a valid invoice by this date will possibly result in delay of payment. Invoice payments will only be made via bank transfer.

If the Affiliate does not provide an invoice, the Company will generate self-invoices through the Technical Platform to organise the payment.

These self-invoices can, if required, be accessed by the Affiliate directly in the Technical Platform.

6.16. The Affiliate shall invoice Unibet Services Limited, mentioning the purchase request number provided by their Affiliate Manager and send invoices by email to Invoices_ULL-USL@kindredplc.com.

In this instance, any negative Commission balance will be set to zero at the beginning of each month.

6.19. Unless agreed in writing by the Company’s Head of Affiliates, any changes to an Affiliate’s Reward Plan will only be applicable to New Customers and not previously referred  customers.

6.20. The Affiliate is responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the payment details in its account and/or as specified on its invoices. Any payment(s) made via the payment details listed in the Affiliate Account will be considered as payment made by the Company. Any cost incurred by the Company resulting from incorrect payment details provided by the Affiliate will be deducted from the Commission due to the Affiliate in the next monthly payment cycle in which there is a payment due to the Affiliate.

6.21. If for any reason the Affiliate has been overpaid, the Company reserves, without prejudice to any other rights, the right to request that the Affiliate refunds the difference, or deduct the corresponding amount of overpayment to the Affiliate from the following month’s Commission, and each month thereafter, until the debt is repaid in full.

1. GENERAL SCOPE AND OBJECTIVE
1.1 Unibet requires third party advertising space to promote and increase its business, notably via increasing the number of New Depositors, and will, from time to time in cooperation with third parties, negotiate, sign and carry out its affiliate marketing strategy. In the event Unibet uses a third party for the (partial) roll-out of its affiliate marketing strategy, including contract negotiation, day-to-day management of the Technical Platform, payment processing, marketing or other activities, this irrespective of the legal capacity of the intermediary, whether as agent, subcontractor or other, Unibet is and remains exclusively responsible for the proper execution of the Agreement.
1.2. Unibet expressly states that the promoting or soliciting of bets is subject to legal restrictions in some countries and may even be prohibited in some cases. These restrictions may vary from time to time. The Affiliate acknowledges that – should the promoting or soliciting of bets or the participation in prize games be prohibited under the rules and regulations of its country of domicile or be permissible only under certain preconditions not met – it may not enter into this agreement and shall, consequently, also not be entitled to post the link on its website. Should any harm or loss whatsoever arise for Unibet or the Affiliate due to the Affiliate’s disregard of the relevant prohibitions in the country of domicile of the Affiliate, the Affiliate shall be exclusively liable for such disadvantages and shall hold Unibet harmless and full indemnify it for any such liability incurred by Unibet.
1.3 The Affiliate further confirms that it operates the website, where the affiliate link will be placed, under its own name and that it is fully and without restrictions authorised to dispose thereof.
1.4 Unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Parties, each Party shall remain exclusively responsible for all and any expenses (including investment and/or running costs) incurred in respect of the obligations it undertakes in terms of this Agreement and will have no right of recourse against the other Party in respect thereof.

2. THE AFFILIATE’S INTEGRATION IN THE UNIBET AFFILIATES NETWORK
2.1 Upon conclusion of the Agreement, a unique tracking code (often in the form of a URL) is assigned to the Affiliate, and the Affiliate is integrated in the Technical Platform. By means of the tracking code, New Customers acquired via the Unibet Content on the Affiliate’s Site and the bets placed during such sessions are registered and/or can be further tracked.
2.2 The Technical Platform will track New Customers to the Unibet Brand promoted by the Unibet Content used by the Affiliate. If a New Customer decides to create a new player account by signing up to either:
a different brand operated by the Unibet Group not promoted by the Unibet Content used by the Affiliate, or;
a new domain which Unibet is unable to migrate players to due to legal, regulatory and/or technical reasons,
the account will not be linked to the Affiliate.
2.3 Any additional Advertising material (of any kind whatsoever) created by the Affiliate and related to Unibet shall require Unibet’s prior written approval.
2.4 A change to the URL of the Affiliate Site shall not constitute a change to the Agreement and shall not affect the rights and obligations of the Affiliate arising from this agreement.
2.5 It is the Affiliate’s responsibility to ensure that any tracking code pulled from the Affiliate platform is used correctly.

3. UNIBET CONTENT
3.1 Throughout the Term, the Affiliate shall use its reasonable endeavours to display the most up to date Unibet Content provided by Unibet, on the Affiliate Site in a manner and location agreed between by both Parties.

3.7 Neither the Affiliate nor the Affiliate’s friends or relatives are eligible to become New Depositing Customers and the Affiliate shall not be entitled to any remuneration from Unibet in relation to such relatives or friends.

(n) apply for a new Affiliate account if it previously had an account closed due to breach of the Unibet Affiliates Terms and Conditions;
(o) incentivise or indicate how sports betting arbitrage, “sure betting”, “safe betting” or similar could be used at Unibet and/or other betting options that statistically prevent the spirit of the Affiliate partnership from being profitable for both parties. If 50% or more of an Affiliate’s referred customers are betting on a single outcome in relation to Sportsbook, this shall be considered as a breach of this Agreement.
(p) promote Unibet and/or create pages using Unibet Brands in any social media (such as, but not limited to, Facebook, Google +, Twitter etc.).

i. the Affiliate commits a breach of its material obligations under these Terms and Conditions and in the case of a remediable breach, fails to remedy it within 30 days of the date of receipt of notice from the other;

After such payment, the Affiliate will no longer be entitled to receive any other Commission.
13.6. For any and all termination notices, delivery via e-mail is considered a written and immediate form of notification.

14. GENERAL
14.1 Unless otherwise provided for, these Terms and Conditions shall constitute the entire agreement and understanding – superseding any previous agreement – between the Parties. Each Party acknowledges and agrees that by entering into this Agreement, it does not rely on, and shall have no remedy in respect of, any statement, representation, warranty, understanding, promise or assurance (whether negligently or innocently made) of any person (whether Party in this Agreement or not) other than as expressly set out in these Terms and Conditions. Nothing in this clause shall operate to limit or exclude any liability for fraud.
14.2 In no event will any delay, failure or omission (in whole or in part) in enforcing, exercising or pursuing any right, power, privilege, claim or remedy conferred by or arising under these Terms and Conditions or by the law, be deemed to be or construed as a waiver of that or any other right, power, privilege, claim or remedy in respect of the circumstances in question, or operate so as to bar the enforcement of that, or any other right, power, privilege, claim or remedy, in any other instance at any time or times subsequently.
14.3 The Affiliate shall not, without Unibet’s prior written consent, assign at law or in equity (including without limitation by way of a charge or declaration of trust), sub-licenses or deals related to this Agreement or any other rights under it, or sub-contract any or all of its obligations under it or purport to do any of the same. Any purported assignment in breach of this clause shall confer no rights on the purported assignee.
14.4 If any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall be found by any court or administrative body of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, such invalidity or unenforceability shall not affect the other provisions of this Agreement which shall remain in full force and effect.
14.5 Any notice given or made to Unibet under these Terms and Conditions shall be sent via email to affiliates@unibet.com and marked for the attention of the Affiliate Account Manager (or as otherwise notified by Unibet). Unibet shall send the Affiliate any notices given or made under these Terms and Conditions to the email address supplied in the Affiliate’s account within the Technical Platform. Any notice shall be deemed to have been received within 24 hours of delivery.
If the receipt occurs before 9.00 a.m. CET on a Working Day, such notice shall be deemed to have been received on that specific day. If such receipt occurs after 5.00 p.m. CET on a Working Day, or on any day which is not a Working Day, the notice shall be deemed to have been received at 9.00 a.m. on the following Working Day.
14.6 Each party undertakes that it will not at any time hereafter use, divulge or communicate to any person, except to its professional representatives or advisers or as may be required by law or any legal or regulatory authority, any confidential information concerning the business or affairs of the other Party or of any member of the group of companies to which the other Party belongs which may have or may in future come to its knowledge. Each of the Parties shall use its reasonable endeavours to prevent the publication or disclosure of any confidential information concerning such matters.
14.7 Nothing in these Terms and Conditions is intended to or shall operate to create a partnership between the Parties, or to authorise either Party to act as agent for the other. Neither Party shall have the authority to act in the name or on behalf of the other Party or otherwise to bind the other Party in any way (including but not limited to the making of any representation or warranty, the assumption of any obligation or liability and the exercise of any right or power).
14.8 Neither Party shall make any announcement relating to these Terms and Conditions nor its subject matter without the other Party’s prior written approval, except as required by law or by any legal or regulatory authority.
14.9 The validity, construction and performance of these Terms and Conditions (and any claim, dispute or matter arising under or in connection with it or its enforceability) shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the substantive laws of New South Wales and each party irrevocably and unconditionally submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of New South Wales.

15. SEVERABILITY
Should one of the contractual provisions be or become ineffective, said ineffective provision will be replaced by one which shall come as close as possible to the commercial purpose of the void provision.
