a. Definitions. For the Purposes of this Agreement:
(i) “Referral” shall mean a Platform User that is directed to the Platform through the Affiliate Accounts through the use of a hypertext transfer link residing on the Affiliate Accounts that automatically connects any person who clicks on said link to the Platform, and which link has been supplied to you as part of the Program and after having been directed to the Platform through the use of the link supplied to you as part of the Program then opens a valid account and makes a $10.00 deposit with OwnersBox on the Platform, and enters one paid Contest (defined below) on the Platform. For a referred customer to be eligible to earn the Affiliate a Referral Fee, the referred customer must clickthrough an Affiliate Link to the Platform and must (1) deposit and enter a minimum of $10.00 of entry fees and (2) enter one paid Contest, in real money Contests on the Platform. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a person shall not be deemed a "Referral" entitling you to a commission or "Referral Fee" if that person leaves the Platform after having been directed there through the link which has been supplied to you as part of the Program without opening a valid account with OwnersBox and making a deposit with us on the Platform, even if at some later time that same person returns to the Platform on his own or via a third party link and at that later time opens a valid account and makes a deposit with us on the Platform.
(ii) “Referral Fee Period” shall refer to the period starting on the Platform User Start Date and expiring on the twenty-four (24) month anniversary of the Platform User Start Date.
(iii) “Contest” shall refer to any skill-based fantasy sport contest offered on the Platform.
(iv) “Platform User” shall refer to Platform account holders who create an account using an Affiliate code provided by OwnersBox to Affiliate, or an account holder tied to a UTM code appended to a URL provided by OwnersBox to Affiliate in order to track mobile and desktop traffic.
(v) “Platform User Start Date” shall refer to the day upon which a Platform User first places an entry fee on the Platform.
b. Referral Fees. OwnersBox shall pay Affiliate “Referral Fee(s),” in United States Dollars (“USD”), as follows:
(i) $10.00 USD for referrals of new Platform Users per month;
(ii) 2% of handle for referrals of Platform Users per month.
c. Payment Terms. Referral Fees will be reported and paid monthly, provided that the total Referral Fees for a given month meet the Referral Fee Threshold (defined below).
d. Referral Fee Clawback. If a referred new Platform Users player files a dispute regarding his/her original deposit or an entry fee paid, any Referral Fees concerning such disputed amount shall become frozen until the dispute is settled. If the dispute is settled in OwnersBox’s favor, any associated Referral Fees will become payable to you. If the dispute is settled in the referred player’s favor, any associated Referral Fees shall not be paid to you and if Referral Fees have already been paid out to you, the amount of such Referral Fees on the disputed charges shall be deducted from your account.
e. Referral Fee Threshold. Referral Fees shall only be made to Affiliate provided the fees owed have reached a minimum of fifty dollars ($50.00) (“Referral Fee Threshold”) in accrued Referral Fees. If Affiliate has accrued Referral Fees below the Referral Fee Threshold, those Referral Fees shall continue to roll over to the next payment period until an amount equal to or greater than the Referral Fee Threshold has been met.
f. Tracking Discrepancies. You acknowledge that our internet tracking services are subject to factors beyond our reasonable control that may cause discrepancies in matching qualifying links to subscribers. Without limiting the foregoing, this includes the inability to track users that have disabled “cookies.” For example, we are not able to track transactions involving customers with browsers set to disable "cookies" and who browse other websites owned or operated by other program affiliates before completing their purchase of a subscription. You acknowledge that such discrepancies are unavoidable with internet tracking and will not constitute a breach of this Agreement.
g. Taxes. Affiliate shall be responsible for paying any and all applicable taxes (if any) due to all taxing authorities arising from, or in connection with, Affiliate’s services hereunder. OwnersBox may require Affiliate to provide a W-9, or similar tax identification information, as a condition precedent to receiving any Referral Fee payments.
h. Termination. Upon termination of this Agreement, OwnersBox shall pay all Affiliate Referral Fees earned, even amounts below the Referral Fee Threshold, during the next payment period. OwnersBox shall not pay Affiliate any Referral Fees that arise (1) before Affiliate executes this Agreement, or (2) after termination of this Agreement.
i. Fraud. You also acknowledge and agree that you shall not be entitled to a commission or Referral Fee for any player which we determine is the result of possible fraudulent activity. You further acknowledge and agree that we shall have the right, in our sole and exclusive discretion, at any time to expand or modify what it determines to constitute possible fraudulent activity. Without limiting the foregoing, possible fraudulent activity shall include without limitation, the following circumstances or activities: (i) Where the player has used or attempts to use a credit card number which is in a negative data base; (ii) Where there are multiple players from a single IP address within a short period of time; (iii) Where there are sequential or multiple players under different names, or variations of the same name using the same credit card number, or sequential names or patterns of names using different credit card numbers; (iv) Where there has been an attempt to put through a credit card with a bin number that is listed in a negative bin number database; (v) Where there have been sequential or multiple attempts to register or subscribe from a credit card using the same bin number and sequential or multiple number strings to complete the credit card number.
