The links may, at our discretion, contain a specific Ad ID (an “Ad ID”) (containing reference to your Aff ID) that may be changed by us from time to time. An Ad ID can be created during a given campaign (for example, during a specific parent Betano campaign); In this case, a link will be established via the link.
4.2 Subject to your compliance with all terms and conditions of this Agreement, Betano will use reasonable endeavors to ensure that whenever a customer passes through the links to the Betano Sites, registers with the Betano Site and/or subsequently places a bet with Betano, the relevant customer is identified as coming from your side. Betano is not liable to you in any way if Betano is unable to identify a customer as being from your side. In particular, please note that we will not be liable to you for the actions of end users or customers if you do not meet the requirement to obtain consent prior to tracking, or if a customer refuses such consent.
4.3 If you provide Betano with personally identifiable information, Betano will fully comply with all of its obligations established under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003, as amended and in force from time to time, as well as the EU Data Protection Policy for Electronic Communications (Directive 2002/58 / EC as amended by Directive 2006/24 / EC and Directive 2009/136 / EC and its subsequent amendments).
5. Payments, money laundering and your identity
5.1 In this paragraph 5, the following words have the following meaning:
“Net Revenue” means all gross amounts that Betano receives during the term of the Agreement from Customers acquired during the same term through Your website, less the following:
(a) amounts paid out as profits to customers;
(b) amounts paid in the form of taxes, duties or levies or other statutory deductions or payments to the approval authorities;
(c) fees charged by electronic payment services or credit card organizations;
(d) bad debts;
(e) amounts of fraudulent activity;
(f) refunded missions;
(g) Provisions for transactions returned at the direction of the cardholder’s bank (so-called chargebacks);
(h) the cost of bonuses, ‘free bets’ or ‘free spins’ provided to customers as an advertising or marketing campaign;
(i) refunds to customers; and
(j) any royalties to third parties or jackpot contributions that Betano must pay to customers or to our providers.
“Third Party Royalties” means any royalties or royalties that Betano has to pay to third parties to legally use technology or other products used on the Betano Site from time to time; and
“Customer” means visitors to your site who access the Betano Site via the links and who register with Betano (including providing a valid email address and other information Betano may require) and open an account when such visitors arrive, comply with the terms and conditions of the Betano site, and/or make a first deposit and/or thereafter make a bet with Betano or one of its affiliates on the particular product or service that is the subject of our agreement with you (for example, if our agreement applies to sports betting, only completed sports betting will be counted and no bets on other types of games of chances, etc.). For the avoidance of doubt, this excludes any end-users who are at that time existing or former customers of Betano or another Betano Group company.
The Net Revenue on which the affiliate payouts are based are calculated using the following formula:
Net Gaming Revenue (“NGR”) = Gross Gaming Revenue (“GGR”) – (taxes + bonus payments + chargebacks)
5.2 Betano will pay you (as specified in paragraph 5.6) the currently published percentage (as indicated on the commission page of your Betano Affiliate account) of the Net Revenue generated during the term of the Agreement in relation to the relevant Betano Pages. For the avoidance of doubt, you are not entitled to any royalties on any revenue generated by customers after termination of this Agreement. Betano.pt standard/default revenue share is 25% of NGR per affiliate account. No additional administrative fees are charged in the affiliate program.
5.3 Betano may, from time to time, introduce other target-based fees with respect to some or all of the Betano Sites, in addition to or independently of any agreement for commission payment based on percentage of Net Revenue generated during the term of the Agreement. Such payments may be listed on the commission page of your Betano Affiliate account. Betano reserves the right to make changes to your commission page, such as the amount of commissions you are entitled to, and these changes will take immediate effect upon the change on your commission page.
5.4 Betano has the right to reduce or terminate the affiliate’s share of Net Revenue and to terminate affiliates whose performance is considered below average. We will notify you by e-mail if such reduction or termination occurs.
5.5 Betano will provide you with billing information that can be accessed via affiliates.betano, listing the number of customers and, if applicable, the revenue generated by these customers that you received during the previous calendar month. At the end of a calendar month, Betano, if applicable, will quote your total Net Revenue share for the previous calendar month. If your share of Net Revenue does not exceed € 100, Betano is entitled to withhold this sum and to carry it forward by the end of the first calendar month in which your share of Net Revenue (including the transferred sum) exceeds € 100; at that time, the payment shall be made in accordance with paragraph 5.10. For the avoidance of doubt, you will only receive a payout in any month if there is a credit balance greater than € 100.
5.6. Negative Commission carryover. Betano’s affiliate program has (by default) a negative commission carryover every month. If there is a negative commission amount at the end of the month, the negative amount for that month is transferred to the next month and the calculation for the new month starts with this negative amount as the starting point for the commission.
Example: Commission September 2020: -1000 €. Commission October 2020: 3000 €. The final paid commission for October 2020 is 2000 €.
5.7 You hereby consent to Betano issuing sales invoices on your behalf for the transactions covered by this Agreement until the Agreement is terminated in accordance with paragraph 12. You may not make sales invoices for the transactions covered by this Agreement.
5.8 You must notify Betano immediately if you:
(a) change your VAT status, for example, if you register for VAT purposes or if your VAT number changes;
(b) you are no longer registered for VAT purposes; or
(c) you sell your business or parts of your business.
5.9 You agree to notify Betano within 14 days of the invoice being issued if the invoice is incorrect.
5.10 You agree that the VAT (if any) shown on the invoice for the transactions under this Agreement that we issue on your behalf is the tax owed by you to the relevant tax authority.
5.11 Unless otherwise agreed in writing, Betano’s corresponding Net Revenue share to be paid to you at the end of each calendar month will be paid within 35 days after the end of the relevant calendar month and upon the issuance and delivery of respective invoice and pursuant to paragraph 5.5. This share of Net Revenue will be paid in Euros, including VAT, if applicable, at the discretion of Betano.
5.12 You must indemnify us against any and all losses, claims, damages, costs, expenses (including, but not limited to, consequential damages and loss of profits, reasonable legal costs and any applicable VAT) and any liability whatsoever directly or indirectly incurred by us as a result of any breach of this paragraph 5.11 by you or as a result of your differing VAT status from what you have provided to us.
5.13 We make every reasonable effort to make payments due to you in a timely manner. However, we are not liable for any delays or delays that we have no control over. For example, changes to your contact or bank details that you have notified may cause a delay of up to 60 days in making any outstanding payments. If you find that your payments are overdue, please contact us immediately and we will try to resolve the matter as soon as possible.
5.14 We make every reasonable effort to make payments to you based on the payment details you have provided. However, in certain circumstances, for reasons beyond our control, we may not be able to make payments to you (for example, if the bank details provided are incorrect or incomplete). In this case, for a period of up to six (6) months, we will use reasonable efforts to contact you via the contact details you last provided in writing to Betano to obtain alternative payment information. If, after this period of time, we are still unable to complete the payments, we may close or suspend your account without further notice, forfeiting your right to payment.
5.15 If a mistake has been made in calculating your share of Net Revenue, Betano reserves the right to correct this calculation at any time and to recover from you any amounts overpaid by Betano (including, without limitation, the occasional reduction in future payments that would otherwise be payable by us to you).
5.16 It is a principle of Betano to seek to prevent and report to competent authorities, money laundering and other illegal activities that actively support money laundering or the financing of terrorist or criminal activity, if that is within its sphere of influence. Betano reserves the right to try to verify your identity through the information you provide, by obtaining information from official sources, or by any other means the Company reasonably deems necessary.
5.17 You must provide us with any supporting documentation (e.g. any of the following for natural persons: copy of a valid passport, copy of a valid driver’s license, copy of a utility bill, bank statement, or for legal persons: copy of a charter of incorporation; Owner of the company and the identity of the directors of the company) that we request and you are aware that payments may be delayed if the supporting documents are not provided.

5.21 In accordance with the terms and conditions of the competent Gaming Authority’s licensing and other terms and conditions, Betano is committed to ensuring that third parties fulfill the following conditions, and you therefore: (a) agree to do so on behalf of Betano behave as if you were bound by the same license terms and rules of conduct as Betano, for example by supporting Betano in displaying information or providing links (for example, a link to the competent Gaming Authority’s website) that the competent Gaming Authority may request; (b) comply with all technical standards for online gambling systems that the competent Gaming Authority may determine; and (c) provide Betano with the information that Betano reasonably may require, so Betano will be able to fulfill its information and other obligations to the competent Gaming Authority; (d) Betano may terminate this Agreement with immediate effect if you have infringed Betano’s reasonable opinion against paragraph 5.20 or otherwise acted in a manner contrary to the competent Gaming Authority’s licensing and other requirements.
5.22 You are solely responsible for your own marketing and promotional activities and you must conduct such activities in a responsible manner and in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and promotional codes. In particular, you must: (a) apply appropriate data protection and security measures; and (b) fulfill your obligations under paragraphs 5.18 (b) and 3.7. You must promptly comply with Betano’s claims with respect to paragraph 5.21. If you do not, Betano reserves the right to terminate this Agreement with immediate effect.

5.24 Nothing in this Agreement shall create or be construed as a partnership or relationship between a party and agent or employer and contractor between you and us.

6.2 In the case of gross errors in payments made (for example, if a payment made differs materially from previous or comparable payments / periods and / or the payment is obviously wrong in all circumstances) the amount paid will be balanced in the appropriate amount. If you are credited with incorrect amounts, you are responsible, and you agree to notify Betano immediately about the error. You agree to fully cooperate with Betano to correct any errors, including the repayment of any overpayments. Betano may offset any payment obligations you may have to us from future payment obligations owed to you under this Agreement.

7.1 Betano reserves the right to seek criminal or other sanctions being imposed against you if we suspect that you have been involved in any fraudulent, unfair or criminal activity and we will disclose this information to the appropriate authorities or other relevant third party if this is required in this regard. Fraudulent acts include actions that are conducted in bad faith and/or acts intended to trick Betano or a member of its group of companies.
