You and AffiliateSlots and Our electronic cash provider, suppliers, contractors, agents, their directors, officers, employees, and representatives shall be released from all obligations and liabilities to each other occurring or arising after the date of such termination, except with respect to those obligations that by their nature are designed to survive termination, as set out in this Agreement. Termination will not exculpate You from any liability arising from any breach of this Agreement, that occurred prior to termination and shall not affect or limit in any way Our rights pursuant to Clause 10 hereof. You will only be entitled to unpaid Fees (if any) earned by You on or prior to the date of termination. However, if You have committed a breach of this Agreement, You shall not be entitled to any unpaid Fees generated after the breach occurred, irrespective of whether this Agreement has been terminated or otherwise, until such breach is remedied. Upon termination of the Agreement, You will not be entitled to any Fees generated relating to any Referred Players directed to AffiliateSlots and Brands, and all monies earned by AffiliateSlots and Brands from such Referred Player shall be retained in whole by AffiliateSlots. AffiliateSlots may withhold the final payment for up to three (3) months to ensure that the correct amount has been calculated and paid. If We continue to permit activity (generation of revenue) from Referred Customers after termination, this shall not be construed to constitute a continuation or renewal of this Agreement or a waiver of termination.
7. Relationship of Parties
We are independent contractors, and nothing in this Agreement shall form a legal partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative, employment relationship, or data controller-processor relationship between us unless we both agree in writing. You will not be able to make or accept any offers or representations on Our behalf. You shall not make any statement that is inconsistent with this Clause, whether on Your site or otherwise.
For the avoidance of doubt, You are solely responsible for the acts of any sub-contractors or other third parties with whom You deal, as well as the actions of Your Affiliate Networks and the monitoring of Your Affiliate Networks to ensure compliance with this Agreement’s requirements. If Your subcontractors or Affiliate Network infringe the terms of this Agreement, You will be held completely accountable, and We will be entitled to take any action against You allowed under this Agreement or at law in response to such violation.
8. Representation of AffiliateSlots
You shall not make any claims, representations, or warranties in connection with AffiliateSlots or the Brands, and You shall have no authority to, and shall not, bind Us to any obligations outside of this Agreement, unless agreed to in writing by Us.
9. Indemnity, Disclaimers and Limitation of Liability
Without prejudice to Our rights under Clause 10.4., You shall defend, indemnify, and hold AffiliateSlots and Our electronic cash providers, suppliers, contractors, agents, their directors, officers, employees, and representatives harmless from and against any and all liabilities, losses, damages, and costs, including reasonable attorney’s fees, resulting from, arising out of, or in any way connected with:
- Any breach by You of any warranty, representation, or provision contained in this Agreement;
- The performance of Your duties and obligations under this Agreement;
- Your negligence;
- Any injury caused directly or indirectly by Your negligent or intentional acts or omissions, or the unauthorised use of Our banners, copies and link or this Affiliate Programme;
- All claims, damages, and expenses (including and not limited to, attorneys’ fees) relating to the development, operation, maintenance, and contents of Your site;
- Any proceedings, penalties, or sanctions imposed by the relevant authorities, as well as any legal fees and costs incurred in connection with, arising out of, or resulting from any breach or non-compliance, non-performance of this Agreement or any part thereof, or non-compliance with Applicable Law.
We make no express or implied warranties or representations with respect to the Affiliate Programme, AffiliateSlots or payment arrangements (including, without limitation, their functionality, warranties of fitness, product-ability, legality, non-infringement, or any implied warranties arising out of a course of performance, dealing, or trade usage). In addition, We make no representation that the operation of Our Websites (including service and tracking) will be uninterrupted or error-free. We will not be liable for the consequences of any such interruptions or errors.
9.3 Limitation of Liability
Your liability, whether under contract, tort or otherwise (including any liability for negligent act or omission), shall not be in any manner excluded or limited and shall include, without limitation, also any liability for any indirect and consequential damages incurred by AffiliateSlots or the Brands including loss of profits, revenue, business, contracts, anticipated savings.
For the avoidance of doubt, You shall also be solely liable towards Us for breaches of this Agreement by Your Affiliate Networks or any sub-contractors or third parties You engage.
We will not be liable for any damages whatsoever, including direct, indirect, special, punitive or consequential damages or for any loss, of any nature whatsoever, arising from or in connection with this Agreement or the Affiliate Programme, even if We have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
Our obligations under this Agreement do not constitute personal obligations of Our directors, officers, employees, representatives, consultants, agents or shareholders.
9.4 Contractual penalty
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, in case of Your breach or threatened breach of any of the provisions of this Agreement as well as any direct violation thereof, You shall be liable to pay a penalty of fifty thousand US Dollars ($50,000) to Us for each such individual breach or threatened breach of this Agreement as provided herein (hereinafter referred to as ‘Penalty’). The payment of the Penalty to AffiliateSlots shall be without prejudice to AffiliateSlots’ right to claim compensation for any damage (including without limitation any indirect or consequential damage, loss of profits or any expenses incurred in relation to the breach or threatened breach) that exceeds the Penalty, which right shall not be affected nor limited by the payment of the Penalty. Furthermore, without prejudice to the Penalty, We shall be entitled to seek any equitable relief as a remedy for such breach, including injunctive relief concerning any threatened or actual breach of any of the provisions of this Agreement as well as any direct violation thereof.
The Penalty becomes due as of the moment of the occurrence of the breach or the moment of threatened breach, and if this is not paid on the first demand, the late payment interest in the maximum amount allowed shall accrue.
Our rights and remedies in these Terms and Conditions shall not be mutually exclusive, i.e., the exercise of one or more of the provisions of this Agreement shall not preclude the exercise of any other provision.
You acknowledge that if You have committed a breach of this Agreement, or if We are not satisfied with the information You are required to provide to us in terms of this Agreement, We may, without prejudice to any other right available:
immediately suspend Your membership of the Affiliate Programme; and/or
in Our absolute discretion, not pay You any funds due to You as Fees.
Additionally, if Your account is not active or generating profit through Fee payments, We shall have the right to demand payment of the Penalty as well as any additional payment from You.
We further reserve the right to report You to the relevant authorities should We, in Our absolute discretion, determine that We are obliged to do so in compliance with Applicable Law.
You acknowledge, that damages or a Penalty may be inadequate for a breach or a threatened breach of this Agreement and, in the event of a breach or threatened breach of any provision of this Agreement, the respective rights and obligations of the Parties may be enforceable by specific performance, injunction, or other equitable remedy.
Nothing contained in this Agreement shall limit or affect any of Our rights at law, or otherwise, for a breach or threatened breach of any provision of this Agreement, it being the intent of this provision to make clear that the enforcement of Our respective rights and obligations shall not be limited in any way.
The rights and remedies outlined in this Clause, and in this Agreement, may be exercised against any or all of Your multiple accounts in Our sole discretion.
10. Mutual Support
Both Parties shall give each other their mutual support in the giving of effect to the spirit, purpose and object of this Agreement.
You shall comply with, inter alia, all legislation, obligations and requests, as required by Us or by any authority in accordance with applicable legislation in the jurisdiction in which You or We are domiciled or operate in.
You warrant that You will co-operate with Us fully and promptly in the event that We request information on Your practices and You agree that We may reasonably monitor such practices to ensure compliance with applicable legislation. Should AffiliateSlots discover non-compliance with any applicable legislation, AffiliateSlots reserves the right to take any action which it deems necessary, including but not limited to terminating this Agreement with immediate effect, immediate closure of Your Affiliate Account and withholding all funds due to You. You agree to indemnify AffiliateSlots for any damages suffered as a result of a breach of this Clause and this Agreement and AffiliateSlots further reserves the right to take any action to which it may be entitled, in the event that it suffers any damage whatsoever due to Your non-compliance with this Clause or this Agreement.
11. Third Parties
This Agreement shall not be considered to grant any rights, remedies, or benefits to any person or entity who is not a party to it. This Clause does not apply to Affiliate Networks for the avoidance of doubt.
12. Assignability and Inurement
AffiliateSlots may, without Your prior written consent, assign this Agreement to any company forming part of AffiliateSlots or otherwise. You may not assign this Agreement, by operation of law or otherwise, in whole or in part, without Our prior written consent. Subject to that restriction, this Agreement will be binding on, inure to the benefit of, and enforceable against You and Us and Your and Our respective successors and assigns.
Our failure to enforce Your strict performance of any provision of this Agreement will not constitute nor be construed as a waiver of Our right to subsequently enforce such provision or any other provision of this Agreement.
Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such a manner as to be effective and valid under Applicable Law but, if any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such provision will be ineffective only to the extent of such invalidity, or unenforceability, without invalidating the remainder of this Agreement or any provision hereof. No waiver will be implied from conduct or failure to enforce any rights and must be in writing to be effective.
15. Force Majeure
Neither Party shall be liable to the other for any delay or failure to perform its obligations under this Agreement if such delay or failure arises from a cause beyond its reasonable control, including but not limited to, labour disputes, strikes, industrial disturbances, acts of God, acts of terrorism, floods, lightning, utility or communications failures, earthquakes or other casualty. If such event occurs, the non-performing Party is excused from whatever performance is prevented by the event to the extent prevented, provided that when the force majeure event ceases, such non-performing Party shall inform the other and resume its obligations pursuant to this Agreement.
Any and all notices which You send to AffiliateSlots pursuant to this Agreement and/or which are related in any manner whatsoever to Your role as an Affiliate, shall be considered valid solely if:
