This Agreement will accordingly take effect from the moment of approval of an applicant’s application and will have an indefinite duration, unless terminated as set out hereinunder.
Without limitation, approval of an applicant’s application shall be subject to the following:
4.1 Registration is free of charge;
4.2 The applicant must provide true and complete information upon application / sign- up;

6. MRGO will track all sales* of the Merchant’s products and/or services that are generated by referrals from the Member's website and/ or other sources using the Tracking Link. That Member will earn a commission, in the currency that is used by customers referred by the Member.
In general, Members must note the following:
a) MRGO may offer tickets, products or services to players at a discounted rate from time to time. Where applicable, a Member's commission will be calculated on the discounted rate and not on the original price of that ticket, product or service;
b) Commission will not be paid on tickets purchased by Members personally or by a Member’s officers, directors, employees or shareholders;
c) Members may not register player accounts through their own affiliate account;
d) Products and/or services represented by MRGO may be cancelled at the sole discretion of a Merchant at any time and for any reason, including, but not limited to, sales arising from fraudulent credit card transactions. Commission will not be paid on any ticket, product or service sales which have been cancelled by the respective provider as aforesaid;
e) The final pay out of commission is subject to a formal audit and consequently the amount paid may vary from the figures viewed on a particular Affiliate Program website;

g) No commission will be payable after an account becomes an inactive account.

No commission will be retro-actively paid out for months during which the account was inactive and commission will not carry over when an account is inactive.

Payments will be made by bank transfer, Moneybookers transfer, Neteller transfer, EFT or Wire in either US Dollars, Euro or Pounds to the Member within 15 (fifteen) days after the last day of the calendar month during which sales were made.
8. MRGO will provide a Member with access to an online statement setting out the total number of sales, the rate of commission and the total commission earned for any given month. All information contained in a statement will be deemed to be correct unless written objection is received from the member within 14 (fourteen) days of the date of such statement.
9. Should a Member dispute any aspect of a statement or the amount of commission to be paid, such dispute will first be referred to dispute resolution, failing which, to arbitration (as set out hereinbelow).
10. Should commission earned for any given month not exceed the sum of £50, €75 or $90 (as applicable), depending on which currency is attracted by the Member, it will be carried over to the next month or until the total commission payable exceeds this amount.
11. Any person or entity who is introduced to the Affiliate Program by a Member via the correct MRGO Sub-Affiliate tracking links will, pending their submission of an Affiliate application and Our subsequent approval of them as an Affiliate, be labelled as that Member’s Sub-Affiliate.
12. All Sub-Affiliates will be considered as regular Affiliates within the Affiliate Program in their own right and as such will operate under and subject to these Terms & Conditions.

If this occurs any Sub-affiliate commission due to the referring Member will no longer be paid and shall be forfeited to MRGO.
13. A Member may not refer themselves as a Sub-Affiliate nor other persons or entities that were registered as our Affiliates in the past or that are currently registered, and any such persons or entities will not be considered Sub-Affiliates under this Agreement. Furthermore, referred affiliates may in no way be related by means of a commercial enterprise to Affiliates that referred them.
14. Members will be rewarded for referring Sub-Affiliates. In addition to paying the Sub-Affiliate (as a regular Affiliate of the Affiliate Program) the applicable commissions , MRGO will also pay the referring Member an additional commission based on the commission earned by the Sub-Affiliate on all sales.
15. The commission referred to hereinabove at 15 will be 10% of the commission earned by the Sub-Affiliate on all of the Affiliate Program websites and will be calculated monthly.
