4.Fees, Payments, Reports
4.1 Choosing of a plan. Affiliates may choose one two plans: revenue participation (“Revenue participation”) or cost per action (“CPA”).
4.1.1 Revenue participation option:
The revenue participation option is calculated based on the Sportsbook’s total NGR (Net Gaming Revenue), which represents the total company’s gross profit in games, minus the processing costs, chargeback, bonus, and taxes. This option is based on the number of new Real Money Customers/Players referred per calendar month in relation to betcris.com
|Level||Number of Real Money Players||Commission|
4.1.2. CPA Option
Request your CPA agreement over e-mail. This option is based on the number of new real money clients/players who have met the plan’s requirements, referred on Betcris.com’s calendar month basis. Payment for new clients will be negotiated with each Affiliate. New clients must comply with the requirements defined on such negotiation.
4.2. Reports. We will track and report Player activity for purposes of calculating your Fees based on your chosen payment plan. The form, content and frequency of the reports may vary from time to time in our sole discretion. Generally, you may log in to your Affiliate Account and view reports related to the number of new Real Money Players that signed up that month per Tracker and/or the total amount due to you after any deductions or set offs that we are entitled to make under this Agreement. Additional reports may be available online for you to view new Real Money Players per Tracker. We hereby exclude any and all liability for the accuracy or completeness of any such reports.
4.3. Raising Sales Invoices. You agree that we will raise sales invoices for the transactions covered by this Agreement on your behalf until this Agreement terminates in accordance with Section 5 of this Agreement. You will not raise sales invoices in respect of the transactions covered by this Agreement.
4.4. Payments in Timely Fashion. We shall make reasonable efforts to make any payments due to you in a timely fashion. However, we shall not be liable for occasional delays or delays outside of our control. For example, any changes in the contact or banking details provided by you may give rise to a delay of up to sixty (60) days in making any payments due. Where you become aware of any overdue payments due to you, please contact us immediately and we will seek to resolve the matter as soon as possible. All Affiliates are required to have a minimum of ten (10) Active Clients (real money) per month in order to withdraw the commission payment. If not, the payment will be carried over to the next month.
4.5 Payment methods. All payments shall be paid in U.S. American dollars, or any other currency we determine, regardless of the currency used to play by each client/player assigned to your tracker. Payment will be made via bank transfer, electronic wallet, through the player’s Betcris account, bitcoins, or any other method that we decide at our sole discretion; however, we will make every reasonable effort to accommodate your preferred payment method. Transfer fees for check courier will be covered by the client and deducted from your fees. To avoid confusions, we have no liability on payment charges for currency conversions or charges associated to the transfer of funds to your Affiliate payment account.
4.6. Deductions for CPA Plan. In any event of a Chargeback, credit, or Player not reaching the age of majority in his or her jurisdiction, such Player shall not be considered for the purpose of the CPA plan, and any CPA payment made to the Affiliate with respect to such Player shall be deducted from future payments to the Affiliate. If a Chargeback or Credit occurs during the fee payment-processing period, we reserve the right to deduct such amounts and the associated fees from the amounts due to the Affiliate under the Revenue Share plan. Any Chargeback or Credit to a Player in respect of which the Affiliate has chosen the CPA reward plan will disqualify such Player and the Affiliate will not be entitled to any payment with respect to such Player.
4.7. Right to Withhold Amounts. We reserve the right to withhold all amounts due and payable to the Affiliate under this Agreement if it believes that any fraud has taken place or is contemplated which involves the Affiliate, whether or not the withheld amounts relate to the event in question.

We will also be entitled, in the foregoing events, to set-off from future amounts payable to the Affiliate any amounts already received by the Affiliate which can be shown to have been generated by fraud. If we determine, at our sole discretion, that the Affiliate has engaged in any activity forbidden in this Agreement, including without limitation activity that involves Restricted Territories, or that the Affiliate has otherwise breached any of its representations, warranties or undertakings in this Agreement, we may (without prejudice to any other rights or remedies available to us) withhold any amounts due and payable to the Affiliate hereunder, whether or not generated by such forbidden activity or breach and further suspend or terminate the Affiliate’s account at its discretion.
4.8. Intellectual Property Rights. We do not support any kind of content stealing or copying (site scraping) or any breach of any intellectual property rights, and we reserve the right to suspend and if necessary terminate the Affiliate’s account if it is proven that the Affiliate is responsible for using such methods, and/or to transfer the amounts payable to the Affiliate to the original content creator and/or intellectual property rights holder.

Any negative balance in Affiliate’s Account will be carried over to subsequent months and will be set-off against the payments due to the Affiliate in subsequent months, until the full negative balance is set-off.

8.1. Identity Verification. It is our policy to prohibit and actively prevent money laundering and any activity that facilitates money laundering or funding of terrorist or criminal activities. We will verify the Affiliate’s identity through the information provided by the Affiliate 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 all of our Affiliates. Should we be unable to adequately satisfy ourselves of the Affiliate’s identity, we shall not be obliged to provide the Affiliate with any information as regards the reasons for such failure to identify the Affiliate. For the avoidance of doubt, the Affiliate agrees that we may use any personal information provided by the Affiliate for the purposes of verifying its identity in accordance with Section 9.1.

For a company, supporting documentation may include a copy of the company’s certificate of incorporation; articles of association (or equivalent document); duly approved corporate resolution; a certificate of good standing; power of attorney; and information regarding the identity of the beneficial owner of the company and the identity of the directors of the company.
