“Customers” shall mean visitors from your Site who enter an Argyll Partners Site via the Links and who validly register (to include the provision of a valid email address and such other information as Argyll Partners’ Sites may require) and open an account with an Argyll Partners’ Site and where such visitor complies with the terms and conditions of the Argyll Partners Site and places a bet with an Argyll Partners’ Site or any of its partners on the particular product or service the subject of our agreement with you (for example, if our agreement with you relates to sports betting, only bets placed on sports betting will be counted, and not stakes wagered on games etc.). For the avoidance of doubt it shall exclude any end user that is at that time an existing or previous customer of any Argyll Partners’ Site or any other company within the Argyll Partners Group.
“Gross Revenues” shall mean all gross monies staked by Customers on Argyll Partners’ Sites during the term of the Agreement less monies paid out to Customers as winnings.

- void or returned stakes
- monies paid in the form of UK point of consumption tax;
- the cost of bonuses, ‘free bets’ or ‘free chips’ provided to Customers as a promotional or marketing activity;
- any Third Party Royalty or jackpot contributions which Argyll Partners’ Sites must pay in respect of any Customers or any of our suppliers

- Argyll Partners shall pay you (in accordance with the provisions of Clause 6.6) the currently published percentage (as detailed on the commission page of your Argyll Partners Affiliate account) of Net Revenues received during the term of the Agreement in connection with any applicable Argyll Partners’ Site. For the avoidance of doubt, you shall not be entitled to any revenue share in respect of revenues generated by Customers following the termination of this Agreement.
- Other target-based payments may be introduced by Argyll Partners from time to time in relation to some or all of the Argyll Partners’ Sites either in addition to or in place of the above Net Revenue based payment. Any such payments will be detailed on the commission page of your Argyll Partners Affiliate account. Argyll Partners reserves the right to make changes to your commission page, including to the levels of commission due to you, and any such changes shall take effect immediately on their being changed in your commission page.
- Argyll Partners has the right to reduce the revenue share of affiliates, or to terminate this Agreement and remove such affiliates, who do not deliver at least one new Customer in a given calendar month. We will notify you by email where such a reduction or termination will occur. Accounts that are inactive for a longer period (e.g. where you have failed to deliver at least one new Customer in the last six months) may also incur an administrative fee but no such administrative fee will be deducted from your account prior to our having made reasonable efforts to contact you via the contact details last provided by you to Argyll Partners. The administrative fee will be applied against the payments (including future payments) that would otherwise be payable to you. If you have any queries regarding inactive accounts, please contact us for further information.
- Argyll Partners shall provide you with statements accessible via your affiliate account detailing the number of Customers and the revenues generated from those Customers, if any, which have accrued to you over the course of the previous calendar month. At the end of a calendar month, Argyll Partners shall record your total share of Net Revenues, if any, during the previous calendar month. In the event that a revenue share in any calendar month is a negative amount, Argyll Partners shall be entitled but not obliged to carry forward and set off such negative amount against future revenue shares which would otherwise be payable to you. However, Argyll Partners shall also be entitled but not obliged to zero the negative balance that would otherwise be carried forward. If a revenue share does not exceed GBP£50.00, Argyll Partners shall be entitled to withhold and carry forward such sum until the end of the first calendar month in which the revenue share (including any sum carried forward) exceeds GBP£50.00, at which time payment shall be made in accordance with Clause 6.10. For the avoidance of doubt, you will only receive a payout when there is a positive balance and it is greater than GBP£50.00 in any given month.
- You agree that Argyll Partners will raise sales invoices for the transactions covered by this Agreement on your behalf until this Agreement terminates in accordance with Clause 12. You will not raise sales invoices in respect of the transactions covered by this Agreement.

- You agree that the VAT (if applicable) shown on the invoice for the transactions covered by this Agreement which we raise on your behalf is your output tax due to the relevant tax authority.
- Unless otherwise agreed in writing, at the end of a calendar month, the relevant revenue share payable by Argyll Partners to you shall be automatically raised and paid out (in accordance with Clause 6.5) within 60 days of the end of the relevant calendar month. Such revenue share shall be paid in pounds sterling, inclusive of VAT if applicable, or in such other currency that Argyll Partners may determine from time to time in its sole discretion.
- You shall indemnify on demand and hold harmless us from and against any and all losses, demands, claims, damages, costs, expenses (including, but not limited to, consequential losses and loss of profit, reasonable legal costs and expenses and VAT thereon if applicable) and liabilities suffered or incurred, directly or indirectly, by Argyll Partners in consequence of any breach by you of this Clause 6.11 or as a result of your VAT status being different from that notified to us.
- Argyll Partners may engage the services of a third party (currently “Income Access”) to provide both the affiliate platform and system maintenance. We have service levels in place and expect these to be upheld but ultimately we do not have total control over these services and therefore cannot be held responsible for any failures arising from such third party services. You shall cooperate with us, and to the extent necessary our third party service providers, to give effect to the terms and spirit of this Agreement.
- 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. 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.
- We shall use reasonable endeavours to make payments due to you using the payment details provided to us. However, in certain circumstances we may be unable to make payments to you for reasons outside of our control (for example where the bank account details provided are inaccurate or incomplete). Where this occurs, we shall make reasonable efforts for a period of up to six (6) months to contact you via the contact details last provided by you to Argyll Partners to obtain alternative payment details. If we are still not in a position to make the payments after this period, we may close or suspend your account without further notice and you shall be deemed to have forfeited any entitlement to payment.
- If an error is made in the calculation of your share of the revenue share, Argyll Partners reserves the right to correct such calculation at any time and to reclaim from you any overpayment made by Argyll Partners to you (including, without limitation, by way of reducing future payments which might otherwise be due to you from us from time to time).
- It is the policy of Argyll Partners to actively prevent, to the extent within its control, money-laundering and any activities that facilitate money-laundering or funding of terrorist or criminal activities. We reserve the right to use third party verification services to authenticate your account information and identity, and to conduct any necessary checks relating to potential fraud or to ensure compliance with our anti-money laundering protocols and obligations, and you expressly acknowledge and agree that we may confirm the accuracy of any information you submit against government-issued ID.
- Argyll Partners reserves the right to request satisfactory identification documents from you for verification purposes. You shall provide us with any supporting documents (e.g. any or all of the following for individuals: valid passport copy; valid driving licence copy; a copy of a utility bill; a bank statement, or in the case of a corporation: a copy of the company’s certificate of incorporation; constitutional documentation; information regarding the identity of the beneficial owner of the company and the identity of the directors of the company) requested by us and you understand that payments may be delayed if supporting documents are not provided.
- You warrant and represent that you shall at all times:
- comply with all laws, rules and regulations which are applicable to your compliance with our obligations in this Agreement;
- comply with the Data Protection Act 1998 and all other applicable data privacy rules, laws and regulations anywhere in the world.

Argyll Partners reserves the right to correct any obvious errors and to void any payments (to include the right to be reimbursed where payments have been made in error) where such have occurred.
- In the case of any blatant errors in payments made (including for example where the payment made is materially different to previous or comparable payments/periods and/or the payment is clearly incorrect, depending on all of the circumstances), the amount paid will be rebalanced at the appropriate rate. Should you be credited in error, it is your responsibility, and you undertake, to notify Argyll Partners of the error without delay. You hereby undertake to provide your full cooperation to Argyll Partners to correct any such errors, including by way of the return of any over-payments. Argyll Partners may set off any payment obligation due to us from you against any future payment obligation owed by us to you under this Agreement.
