5. Commissions and Payment
5.1. The commission is based on the Revenue generated by New Customers, as defined below in this Clause, who access the Website via clicking the tracking links on the Affiliate Sites. “New Customers” shall mean customers of the Operator who do not yet have, and have not had an account with the Company and who access the website via clicking the tracking links on the Affiliate Sites, properly register and then make real money transfers at least equivalent to the minimum deposit into their website account.
5.2. The commission granted by the Company to the Affiliate will be calculated as a percentage share of the Net Revenue generated from the New Customers referred by the Affiliate Sites. Net Revenue is the revenue generated from New Customer’s real money bets less real money won during that same calendar month less any applicable taxes, bonus costs, jackpot contributions and other administrative costs.
5.3. The size of the commission (the Affiliate’s percentage share of the Net Revenue) for each month depends on the Net Revenue generated by New Customers referred to the certain Company’s website by the Affiliate during that same calendar month as specified in the commission structure as set out below:

Payment of commissions shall be made by the payment method chosen by the Affiliate in the application process. The minimum payout level is 50 EUR, 50 GBP, 50 USD, 450 SEK. If the commission is lower than the minimum payout level, the commission will be transferred to the following month.
5.9. The Affiliate may, at the sole discretion of the Company, be provided with the opportunity to restructure its commission structure. Examples of alternative commission structures could include a Cost Per Acquisition (CPA) model. However, and for the avoidance of doubt, only one type of commission structure for the same product may be applied at the same time. Therefore, once an Affiliate accepts the Company’s offer to apply a new commission structure, different to the standard Commission Structure detailed in this Agreement, the Affiliate hereby agrees and understands that the new proposed commission structure shall replace his existing commission structure in its entirety. Notwithstanding the above, the Affiliate’s obligations assumed under this Agreement will still continue to apply to the Affiliate even if a new commission structure is applicable.
5.10. The Company reserves the right to set limits for a minimum level of activity on Affiliate’s accounts. Such minimum activity levels will be continuously reviewed and the Company reserves the right to reduce the Affiliate’s Commission/change the Affiliate’s Reward Plan or even terminate any agreement not reaching the limit. Such limit shall not be unreasonably high and reflect the intention of avoiding accounts where the revenue does not cover the Company’s internal costs for maintaining the account and the payout procedure.
5.11. If the Affiliate disagrees with the balance due as reported, it shall within a period of fourteen (14) days send an email to the Company at [email protected], [email protected] or such other email address as notified in writing by the Company to the Affiliate and indicate the reasons of such dispute. Failure to report within the prescribed time limit shall be deemed an acknowledgment of the balance due for the period indicated.
5.12. The commission is inclusive of any and all taxes, including but not limited to value added tax. The Affiliate is solely responsible for the payment of any and all taxes, fees, charges and any other money payable or due both locally and abroad to any tax authority and/ or any other authority as a result of the revenue generated under this Agreement.
5.13. The Affiliate, acting in a private capacity, further undertakes to self-pay any applicable social security contributions on the remuneration received under this Agreement.
5.14. The Affiliate, acting within a business activity, is required to provide proof of company registration such as a VAT-number to Company as further specified from time to time by the Company at its sole discretion. Otherwise, the Affiliate is considered acting in a private capacity.

The Affiliate is responsible for all obligations and costs in connection with the performance of this Agreement.
6. Force Majeure
6.1.
