The terms and conditions contained in this agreement (the “Agreement”) represent the legally binding agreement that governs your participation in the ParlayPlay Affiliate Program (the "Program"). By clicking "I Agree", you are indicating your acceptance of this Agreement and all of its terms and conditions. References to "you" and "your" in this Agreement mean you, as the applicant to the Program.
The "ParlayPlay Site" means the site that has its primary home page identified by the URL 'www.ParlayPlay.io’
"Your Site" means the site that you listed in your Program application and on which you will place our ads to link to the ParlayPlay Site.
3. Enrollment in the Program
To begin the enrollment process, you must submit a complete Program application via the ParlayPlay Affiliate Site. We will evaluate your application in good faith and will notify you of its acceptance or rejection. We may accept or reject your application in our sole discretion, including if we determine that Your Site is unsuitable for the Program. Unsuitable sites include but are not limited to those that:
By participating in the Program you agree that you will not engage in any of the activities listed above, or any other illegal activities. If we reject your application, you are welcome to reapply to the Program at any time. You should also note that if we accept your application and Your Site is thereafter determined (in our sole discretion) to be unsuitable for the Program, we may terminate this Agreement immediately and without any liability to you or any third party.
4. Links on Your Site
If and when you have been notified that Your Site has been accepted into the Program, we will provide you with the appropriate ads that you may add to Your Site.
We will provide you with guidelines and graphical artwork to use in linking to the ParlayPlay Site home page. To permit accurate tracking and reporting, we will provide you with special "tagged" link formats to be used in all links between Your Site and the ParlayPlay Site. You must ensure that each of the links between Your Site and the ParlayPlay Site properly uses such formats. Links to the ParlayPlay Site placed on Your Site pursuant to this Agreement and which properly use such special link formats are referred to as "Affiliate Links". You will earn Referral Fees only with respect to activity on the ParlayPlay Site occurring directly through Affiliate Links. We will not be liable to you for any failure by you to use Affiliate Links, including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction of amounts that would otherwise be paid to you under this Agreement.
In addition, you acknowledge and agree that we may crawl or otherwise monitor Your Site for the purpose of ensuring the quality and reliability of Affiliate Links on Your Site (for example, to detect links that are broken or non-functional, links to products that are out of stock or otherwise unavailable, etc.). You hereby agree that: (a) we may take such actions and that you will not seek to block or otherwise interfere with such crawling or monitoring; and (b) we may use technical means to overcome any methods used on Your Site to block or interfere with such crawling or monitoring.
Further, you acknowledge and agree that you will: (a) use any data, graphics, images, text, or other information or material obtained by you from us or the ParlayPlay Site in connection with this Agreement (collectively, the "Content") only in a lawful manner and only in strict accordance with the terms of this Agreement and any other instructions we may give you in relation to the Content; (b) not modify or alter any Content that consists of a graphic image, other than to resize it (provided you retain the original ratios); (c) not edit any Content that consists of text; (d) not sell, redistribute, sublicense or transfer any Content; (e) not use any Content in a manner intended to send sales to any site other than the ParlayPlay Site; and (f) promptly delete or otherwise destroy any Content that is no longer displayed on the ParlayPlay Site or that we notify you is no longer available for your use.
5. Disclosure of Marketing Strategy and Placements
Either at the time of enrollment in the Program or at the request of ParlayPlay, all sources used for promotion of the ParlayPlay brand and user acquisition efforts must be disclosed in full. In the case of media buying, lead generation, and/or affiliate networks, a complete itemized breakdown of all sources used to promote ParlayPlay must be disclosed. This includes weekly updates and calls with an Affiliate Manager. Updates will include any new sources, as well as a count of registrations from each source. If you fail to disclose this information, we may (in our absolute discretion) withhold any Referral Fees otherwise payable to you under this Agreement and/or terminate this Agreement.
6. Order Processing
We will process registrations and deposits submitted by customers who follow Affiliate Links from Your Site to the ParlayPlay Site. We reserve the right to reject registrations or deposits that do not comply with our applicable rules and policies from time to time. We will be responsible for all aspects of customer registration and deposit and payments to you under this Agreement. We will track payments made by those who follow Affiliate Links from Your Site to the ParlayPlay Site and will, from time to time, make available to you reports summarizing such sales activity. The form, content, and frequency of these reports may vary from time to time in our absolute discretion.
7. Referral Fees
We reserve the right to review all Referral Fees for possible fraud on your part or on the part of any Referred Customer. If we reasonably consider that Referral Fees have been generated in whole or in part due to fraudulent practices, we shall be entitled to withhold those Referral Fees or offset an appropriate amount from future payments of Referral Fees (in our sole discretion). For the purposes of these terms and conditions, "fraud" shall include, but shall not be limited to: (i) acts made in bad faith; (ii) a Referred Customer’s collusion with any other player on the ParlayPlay Site; (iii) you or any third party offering or providing any unauthorized incentive (financial or otherwise) to potential customers (including, without limitation, the sharing by you of any Referral Fees earned by you through your promotion of the ParlayPlay Site); or (iv) the creation of multiple user accounts (including those to be used by you or your friends, relatives or associates) in order to abuse the Referral Fee mechanism.
In addition, you may not:
(a) directly or indirectly offer any person or entity any consideration or incentive (including, without limitation, payment of money (including any rebate), or granting of any discount or other benefit) for using Affiliate Links on Your Site to access the ParlayPlay Site (e.g., by implementing any "rewards" program for persons or entities who use Affiliate Links on Your Site to access the ParlayPlay Site);
(b) read, intercept, record, redirect, interpret, or fill in the contents of any electronic form or other materials submitted to us by any person or entity;
(c) in any way modify, redirect, suppress, or substitute the operation of any button, link, or other interactive feature of the ParlayPlay Site;
(d) make any orders or subscription requests, or engage in other transactions of any kind on the ParlayPlay Site on behalf of any third party, or authorize, assist, or encourage any other person or entity to do so;
(e) take any action that could reasonably cause any customer confusion as to our relationship with you, or as to the site on which any functions or transactions (e.g., search, order, browse, and so on) occur;
(f) post or serve any advertisements or promotional content around or in conjunction with the display of the ParlayPlay Site (e.g., through any "framing" technique or technology or pop-up windows), or assist, authorize, or encourage any third party to take any such action;
(g) attempt to circumvent the Referral Fee calculation or artificially increase your Referral Fees (e.g. by intentionally featuring, purchasing or requesting or encouraging any third party to purchase registrations offered on the ParlayPlay Site for the purpose (as determined by us) of exceeding any Referral Fee Threshold);
(h) attempt to intercept or re-direct (including, without limitation, via user-installed software) traffic from or on, or divert Referral Fees from, any site that participates in the Program;
(i) seek to purchase or register any keywords, search terms or other identifiers that include the word "ParlayPlay" or variations thereof for use in any search engine, portal, sponsored advertising service or other search or referral service;
(j) work with, in any capacity, a site dedicated to promoting coupon codes, promotional codes, discount codes, bonus codes, etc. This includes promotion of codes distributed to you by your point of contact at ParlayPlay in relation to the Program, as notified by us to you from time to time (the "Affiliate Manager");
(k) optimize for search results including any individual or combination of the terms: “bonus,” “promo code,” “coupon code,” and/or any similar terms and/or their variations. This includes using the aforementioned terms and variations in URL names, webpage and article titles, backlinks, and meta-descriptions; or
(l) publish content considered to be improper, adverse to the integrity of ParlayPlay contests, or in any way detrimental to ParlayPlay users. This includes, but is not limited to, offering complete ParlayPlay lineups for sale.
If we determine, in our sole discretion, that you have engaged in any of the foregoing activities, we may (without limiting any other rights or remedies available to us) withhold any Referral Fees otherwise payable to you under this Agreement and/or terminate this Agreement.
8. Referral Fee Payment
We will pay you the Referral Fees (if any) on a monthly basis. Approximately 10 days following the end of each calendar month, we will send you a payment for the Referral Fees earned in that month, if any, except that we will accrue and withhold Referral Fees until the total amount due is at least $100. You may request that payment of amounts over $250 be made by check. You may request that payments of amounts over $1,000 be made by wire transfer. Payments of $5,000 or more must be made by wire transfer or check.
9. Policies and Pricing
Customers who become customers of the ParlayPlay Site through the Program will be deemed to be our customers. Accordingly, all of our rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service, registration and contests will apply to those customers. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. For example, we will determine the prices to be charged for registration, if any, under the Program in accordance with our own pricing policies. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to present accurate information, but we cannot guarantee the availability or price of any particular contest.

You may not in any manner misrepresent or embellish the relationship between us and you, or express or imply any relationship or affiliation between us and you or any other person or entity except as expressly permitted by this Agreement (including by expressing or implying that we support, sponsor, endorse, or contribute money to any charity or other cause).
