Terms and Conditions
Following are the complete terms and conditions of this agreement for you to become a member of the Golden Euro Affiliate Program.
1.1. Once you've signed up to the program, and downloaded any marketing material or placed banners on your site, you fully agree and bind yourself to the terms and conditions of the Golden Euro affiliate program, as set out in this agreement
1.2. Your participation in the Golden Euro affiliate program is indicated by accessing and utilizing any of the Golden Euro affiliate program marketing material/s, or accepting of any reward/s, bonus/s or commission/s whether contained in this agreement or elsewhere on our web site.
1.3. If you do not wish to accept all the terms and conditions of this agreement please do not create an affiliate account. Please do not enrol if your site is unsuitable, as we will immediately terminate the agreement. See Clause 8 for further details on this.
1.4. The agreement provides you with the non-exclusive right to direct users from your site or sites to the Golden Euro website, in return for the payment of commissions and referral bonuses as specified in clause 6 of this agreement.
2.1 “Golden Euro Affiliate Program” means the company that manages and promotes the affiliate program of Golden Euro online casino.
2.2. “Visitor” means a person or entity that follows a link from your site, e-mail or however directed, to Golden Euro.
2.3. “Customer” means a person or entity that follows a link from your site, e-mail or however directed, to Golden Euro and opens an account here.
2.4. “Golden Euro Online Casino” refers to the company that manages the Golden Euro online casino. We are in the business of offering online casino games. This service is accessed through the use of a personal computer with internet access.
2.5. “You”, “Webmaster”, “Affiliate” refers to the other party to the contract formed by the acceptance of these terms and conditions.
2.6. “This Agreement” means this agreement between you and the Golden Euro affiliate program in respect of which you shall become a member of the Golden Euro affiliate program.
2.7. When referring to “free money”, this includes but is not limited to, complimentary money, incentives and bonuses awarded to players. Seeing that players did not purchase these amounts, we cannot pay commission thereon.
2.8. When referring to “Charge Backs”, it means a credit card holder claims that transactions have been made with his/ her credit / debit card without their authorization. At their request these charges are then reversed by their bank.
2.8.1. In cases of charge backs, the commission generated by you will be deducted from the total revenue due to you for that month. Should the charge back balance be negative, you will need to compensate for this by accumulating further commission until such time when your balance is positive again.
2.8.2. This negative carry-over only applies to negative balances arising from customer charge backs.
2.8.3. Unlike with a player making a big win, which only lasts one month (No Negative Carry-over), a Chargeback will stay due until the revenue generated by your other players has covered the amount due. We understand that this might be frustrating to the affiliates, but it has to be made clear our customers can only pay out a percentage of their profits, not fraudulent revenue.
3. Grant of License
3.1. By this agreement, we grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to advertise market and promote the Golden Euro website, in accordance with the terms and conditions of this agreement
3.2. We reserve all other rights and licenses not expressly granted to you herein.

You will have no authority to make or accept any offers or representations on our behalf. You will not make any statement, whether on your site or otherwise, that reasonably would contradict anything in this clause.</span></p>
