We reserve the right to require the Site to refuse new Players or to close the accounts of existing Players if necessary in our sole discretion in order to comply with any requirements we may periodically establish, including without limitation with regard to Fraud, unlawful activity, breach of the respective Site’s terms and conditions of use, or otherwise.
Payments.We will make payments to you in accordance with the applicable payment plan, as set forth in detail below.

We will verify your identity through the information provided by you and by obtaining information from public sources and data. We will make our best efforts to reasonably ensure that we know the true identity of any of our affiliates. Where we consider it necessary, we may utilize the services of external agencies to assist us with conducting related due diligence on participants in the Mansion Poker Affiliates Program and you agree, as a condition to your on-going participation, to co-operate in such a process and furnish us with any information we request for this purpose and enter into any additional consent that may be required.

9. Payments and Fees
Revenue Share Payment Plan.Under the Revenue Share payment plan, we will calculate your Revenue Commission on a monthly basis according to your Net Revenue in Poker, as defined in the Revenue Share Table below.
Revenue Share Table
Number of New Real Money Players
Minimum Activity Qualification. Your Revenue Commission will decrease to a rate of 12.5% following a 3 month period of Affiliate Inactivity.
Final and Binding Data and Calculations.All calculations in connection with the amount payable to you will be made by us and based solely on our systems’ data and records, and our calculations will be final and binding.
Change of Payment Plan.We reserve the right to change your payment plan upon notice to you. Any such change will take effect only from the date of such notice. For the avoidance of doubt, any change to your payment plan shall only apply to Players you introduce to the Site after the date of such notice, unless otherwise agreed in writing.
Business by Other Persons.You shall have no claims to Revenue Commission or other compensation on business secured by or through persons or entities other than yourself.
Your Losses as a Player.If you are also a player in the Site, we reserve the right not to include your losses or rakes as a player in the Revenue Commission due to you.
Exit Traffic.Exit Traffic will be considered for the purpose of calculating your Revenue Commission (if applicable).
Payment Procedure.An account balance statement will be sent no later than the 12th of each month. You will have 48 hours to review the statement and notify your affiliate manager of any discrepancies. If you do not submit an amended statement within this 48 hour period, the original will be deemed as approved and you will be paid accordingly. Payments are issued by the 15th of each month, provided the amount payable to you is not less than $250. If this minimum amount is not reached in a particular month, we will be entitled to withhold payment and carry the amount due to you to the next calendar month and so on, until the minimum amount is reached. All payments will be due and paid in Euro or in any other currency in our discretion. We will transfer funds only to the designated account appearing in your application form. Third party wire transfer is prohibited by us.
Taxes and Other Charges.You are fully responsible for all taxes, fees and other costs incidental to and arising from any payments made to you under this Agreement, including without limitation processing fees. You will indemnify and reimburse us for any costs, expenses or losses that may be caused to us as a result of any claim or demand made by any governmental or other authority, with regard to tax withholding obligations or similar obligations to which we may be subject in connection with making payments to you. We will be entitled to withhold or set-off any such amounts from the payments made to you.
Processing Fees.Processing fees of 4 % are applicable on all Players’ Deposits and Withdrawals, and will be deducted from the calculations of your Revenue Commission.
Negative Carry-Over.We have a negative carry-over policy, meaning that any negative balance in your account will be carried over to subsequent months and will be set-off against the payments due to you in the subsequent months, until the full negative balance is thus set-off.
A negative balance in your account is relevant to Revenue Share payment plan and means that the total of all bets generated on your Trackers is less than the total of all winnings plus bonuses generated on your Trackers (i.e. your Revenue Commission is negative).
Right to Withhold Amounts.We reserve the right to withhold all amounts due and payable to you under this Agreement if we believe that any Fraud has taken place or is contemplated which involves you, whether or not the withheld amounts relate to the event in question. If we believe that a Fraud has taken place or is contemplated by any Player without your knowledge, we will be entitled to withhold any amounts due to you in connection with such Fraud. We will also be entitled, in the foregoing events, to set-off from future amounts payable to you any amounts already received by you which can be shown to have been generated by Fraud. We will also have the right to withhold any amounts payable to you in the event that you pay any of your Players any rake-back or other payment or financial incentive.
We do not support nor give hand to any kind of content stealing or copying (site scraping), and we reserve the right to close your account with us if you will be proven to use such methods, and/or to transfer the amounts payable to you to the original content creator.
We reserve the right to delay or withhold payments if any supporting documents are not provided to us upon request.
If we determine, in our sole discretion, that you have engaged in any activity forbidden in this Agreement, including without limitation activity that involves Excluded Territories, Competing Marketing or that you have otherwise breached any of your representations, warranties or undertakings in this Agreement, we (without limiting any other rights or remedies available to us) (i) may terminate this Agreement immediately; and (ii) withhold any amounts due and payable to you hereunder, whether or not generated by such forbidden activity or breach.
Chargebacks and Credits.All Chargeback and credit amounts will be deducted from your payment or the reserved funds. Chargeback and credit fees will be paid to the credit card companies and will be administered by us. If a Chargeback or any form of credit to the Player occurs during the fee payment-processing period (usually 12 business days), we reserve the right to deduct such amounts and the associated fees from the amounts due to you under the Revenue Share plan.
11. Term and Termination
Term and Termination.The term of this Agreement will begin when you submit your affiliate application form located here and will continue until either party notifies the other party that it wishes to terminate the Agreement, with or without cause, in which case this Agreement will be terminated immediately.

You must also immediately disable any links from your site to any Site, and immediately stop any activity relating to Promotion Mails. All rights and licenses given to you in this Agreement shall immediately terminate.
If you have failed to fulfill your obligations and responsibilities, we will not pay you the Revenue Commission otherwise owing to you on termination or thereafter, if applicable.
We may withhold your final payment for a reasonable time to ensure that the correct amount is paid and that there are no debts or liabilities owing from you to us. We will be entitled to deduct from any payments due and payable to you, any such debts and liabilities due to us, if any.
