Terms of Service

Last Updated: June 25, 2019

These terms (this ‘Agreement’) constitute a legal agreement between the Company and Customer. This Agreement governs Customer use of the Software and Service (as defined below). By signing an Order Form, Customer agrees to all terms and conditions of this Agreement. If Customer is entering into this Agreement on behalf of a company or other organization, Customer hereby warrants and represents that it is authorized to enter into this Agreement on behalf of such company or other organization.

Definitions
For purposes of this Agreement, the following terms are defined as:

‘Commissions’ means fixed monetary payments made to Customer in relation to qualified referrals by Customer of Consumers to Sportsbook Operators.
‘Consumer’ means a user of the Applications of Customer, that is referred to a Sportsbook Operator via the Service and/or interacts with Sportsbook Operator by signing up for a new account, meeting the monthly deposit requirement, and placing a bet in the amount to satisfy the requirements of being a Qualified Referral.
‘Sportsbook Operator’ means a state licensed sportsbook that provides online gaming services to users twenty-one (21) years and older and which has an affiliate program or other means of communicating to the Company the associated Commissions.
‘Service’ means the provision to Customer of the Software that provides connected access to Sportsbook Operators.
‘Software’ means the Company software that facilitates the automated and online referral by Customer of a Consumer to a Sportsbook Operator and records the registration and account activity between such referral and Sportsbook Operator.
‘Qualified Referral’ is defined as the terms by which a Consumer referred by Applications is counted by the Sportsbook Operator for purposes of paying Commissions to the Company. Consumers who have pre-existing accounts with the Sportsbook Operator will not qualify as a Qualified Referral.

The above language is intended for illustration purposes and should not be interpreted to restrict the scope of destinations that the Company deems monetizable (e.g. Sportsbook Operators) nor the forms of monetizing (e.g. Commissions for Qualified Referrals from Customer’s Consumers).

Registration
In order to use the Software and Service, Customer must sign an Order Form with the Company. Upon execution of an Order Form, the Company will provide Customer with a unique user ID and a piece of JavaScript code that Customer will add to the Applications in order to enable the Software on the Applications. For purposes of this Agreement, the term ‘Website’ means the website or websites upon which Customer install the Company’s code; the term ‘Application’ means the mobile application or applications upon which Customer install the Company’s code; collectively, both Website and Application constitute ‘the Applications’. The Company’s software may only be used on Applications for which Customer has the authority to modify. The use of the Company’s Software and Service in conjunction with browser toolbars, proxies, or other intermediate software to modify websites or affiliate clicks Customer does not control is specifically prohibited. The Company will deny or cancel service for any Applications at its discretion.

License
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Company grants Customer a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sub-licensable license to use the Software and Service on the Applications during the term of this Agreement. Customer will not and will not permit any third party to (i) reverse engineer, decompile or otherwise attempt to discover the source code of the Software, (ii) interfere with the operation of the Software or Service; or (iii) use the Software or Service in any way other than as expressly set forth herein. The Company retains all right, title and interest in and to the Software and Service, all improvements and derivative works thereof, together with all Intellectual Property Rights embodied therein. Customer will have no rights with respect to the foregoing except for the limited license expressly set forth herein.

Responsibility for the Applications
Customer will be solely responsible for all matters related to the content, operation, and maintenance of the Applications, including, but not limited to: (i) creating and posting Sportsbook Operator descriptions and links on the Applications and linking to Sportsbook Operator websites; (ii) the accuracy and appropriateness of all materials posted on the Applications (including, but not limited to, all information regarding Sportsbook Operator and Sportsbook Operators’ products and/or services); (iii) ensuring that all materials posted on the Applications do not infringe or misappropriate any third party intellectual property rights; and (iv) ensuring that all materials posted on the Applications are not defamatory or otherwise illegal.

Customer represents, warrants, and covenants that Customer shall comply with applicable laws, ordinances, rules, regulations, orders, licenses, permits, judgments, decisions, and other requirements of any governmental authority or state gaming commission that has jurisdiction over Customer, including without limitation laws (federal, state, or otherwise) that govern marketing email (e.g., the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003), as well as any applicable Sportsbook Operator terms and conditions and policies, in each case to the extent applicable to Customer operation of the Applications and use of the Service and Software, including, without limitation, those regarding the disclosure of a material relationship inherent in the links on the Applications. Customer acknowledges that it is responsible for replying to any requests from state gaming commissions in a prompt and truthful manner and that Company is not accountable for any errors, omissions, or regulatory issues that arise therefrom.

Additional Requests
If Customer wishes to use the Company products for any additional Applications, then Customer may request that such Applications are added to Customer account by notifying the Company at info@metabet.io. The Company may approve or reject each Website domain request or Application at its discretion. If the Company decides to reject a Website domain request or Application, it is not obliged to provide Customer with its reasons for doing so. If the Company approves a Website domain request or Application, it will notify Customer by email, and Customer may begin using the Company products in relation to such additional Applications. Should the additional Website domains be added without Company approval, the Company can at its discretion reverse all commissions earned.

Sportsbook Operators
Customer acknowledges and agrees that (i) the Company uses its sole discretion in determining which Sportsbook Operators the Applications will be affiliated with, as well as the number of Sportsbook Operators (if any) the Application will be affiliated with; (ii) the Company may (through the Software and with Customer permission) rewrite links on the Applications from one Sportsbook Operator to another in order to obtain the best value for Customer; (iii) Sportsbook Operators set their Commission structures and may change their Commission structures (generally or solely with respect to Customer) or terminate their involvement in the Service (generally or solely with respect to Customer) at any time and the Company will have no control over or liability in connection with any Sportsbook Operator’s decision to do so; and (iv) Sportsbook Operators may at any time send the Company notice requesting that Customer remove links or references to Sportsbook Operators’ brands, products, services or trademarks and the Company will communicate this notice to Customer.

Commissions and Payment
The Company will be the ‘publisher of record’ for all Sportsbook Operator affiliate programs, and will collect all Commissions received from Sportsbook Operators on account of referrals from the Applications. The Company will pay Customer a Commission equal to (i) a fixed dollar amount (the “Applicable Fee”) that the Company receives from Sportsbook Operators on account of referrals from the Applications (“Sportsbook Operator Revenue”) minus (ii) any Chargebacks (as defined below) and any other commission cancellations, reversals or deductions administered or by determination of the Company with respect to any referrals from the Applications (collectively, “Deductions”), provided that Customer use the Company tracking. The Applicable Fee may be revised by the Company from time to time without notice. Payment will be issued to Customer at the end of each month for all Commissions earned by Customer that correspond to Sportsbook Operator Revenue that the Company has received up to that point. The Company will collect all relevant details for tax purposes as necessary and specified by the tax code. A Sportsbook Operator may determine, in its sole discretion, that any Qualified Referral was not a bona fide transaction, whether the registration by Consumer was fraudulent or otherwise (a ‘Chargeback’), and may make a Chargeback claim requesting certain Commissions be cancelled or reversed to reflect the fact that the Sportsbook Operator’s business never benefited from the transaction. Chargebacks are communicated to the Company as they occur. Sportsbook Operator Revenue is typically paid by Sportsbook Operators, and Chargebacks are typically determined, within thirty (30) days but can fall outside of this, from the end of the month in which the applicable Qualified Referral occurs; however, Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Company is not required to pay any Commission to Customer until the Company has actually received the corresponding Sportsbook Operator Revenue, and that Customer will be solely responsible and pay the Company for (and the Company may deduct from any Commission payments to Customer) the full amount of any Chargebacks and other Deductions, regardless of when such Chargeback or other Deduction is claimed by the Sportsbook Operator. Commissions earned are solely the result of Sportsbook Operator’s evaluation and approval of referrals from the Applications and the Company has limited say and visibility into how these referral transactions are evaluated and approved, nor why a referral transaction was disallowed or not paid on. Customer agrees that different Sportsbook Operators use different Sportsbook Operator Revenue calculations based on pre-negotiated, fixed amounts per Qualified Referral, CPAs “cost per actions” (without limitation). Customer is encouraged to review all Sportsbook Operator affiliate program terms and conditions. Any and all requests and appeals for payment or rationale behind click affiliation are NOT the responsibility of the Company, nor does the Company have any duty to help Customer solve the issue of affiliate payments. While the Company offers to cover the cost of some payment types, Customer is solely responsible for any fees charged by Customer bank or other provider for receiving payments from the Company. Further, should payments be returned or rejected, the Company will assess fees directly or deduct against Customer account balance.

Indemnity
Customer will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the Company and its officers, directors, shareholders, employees, and agents from and against any and all liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements) resulting from or based upon (i) any claim that the Application infringes or misappropriates any third party intellectual property rights; (ii) Customer breach of any representations or warranties made by Customer in this Agreement or of any other obligation of Customers set forth in this Agreement or (iii) any claim by any Consumer or other third party arising from Customer use of the Service or Software, unless due to the Company’s negligence or willful misconduct. The Company will have no liability for these matters or for any of Customer end users’ claims relating to these matters, and Customer agrees to defend, indemnify, and hold us, our affiliates and licensors, and our and their respective employees, officers, directors, and representatives, harmless from and against all claims, damages, losses, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) relating to (a) Customer Applications or any materials that appear on Customer Applications, including the combination of Customer Applications or those materials with other applications, content, or processes; (b) the use, development, design, manufacture, production, advertising, promotion, or marketing of Customer Applications or any materials that appear on or within Customer Applications, and all other matters described in this Agreement; (c) Customer use of any Content, whether or not such use is authorized by or violates this Agreement, or applicable law; (d) Customer violation of any term or condition of this Agreement; or (e) Customer or Customer employees’ negligence or willful misconduct.

Privacy
The Company will protect all information collected from Customer use of the Software and the Service in accordance with the Company Privacy Policy. Customer shall disclose to users of the Applications the Customer privacy practices and policies in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations, including, without limitation, the Federal Trade Commission guidelines regarding disclosure of native advertising, and Customer acknowledges and agrees that as between Customer and the Company, it is solely Customer responsibility to do so. Customer shall disclose on Customer Applications accurately and adequately, either through a privacy policy or otherwise, how Customer collects, uses, stores, and discloses data collected from visitors, including, where applicable, that third parties may serve content and advertisements, collect information directly from visitors, and place or recognize cookies on visitors’ browsers.

Disclaimer of Warranties
THE SOFTWARE AND THE SERVICE ARE PROVIDED ‘AS IS.’ THE COMPANY DOES NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES IN CONNECTION WITH THE SOFTWARE, THE SERVICE, THE SPORTSBOOK OPERATORS ACCESSIBLE THROUGH THE SERVICE, THE OPERATION OF THE SOFTWARE OR THE SERVICE BEING UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, OR OTHERWISE WITH RESPECT TO THIS AGREEMENT. THE COMPANY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL EXPRESS, IMPLIED AND STATUTORY REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ERROR-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED OPERATION, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. TO THE EXTENT THAT THE COMPANY MAY NOT, AS A MATTER OF APPLICABLE LAW, DISCLAIM ANY SUCH WARRANTY, THE SCOPE AND DURATION OF SUCH WARRANTY WILL BE THE MINIMUM REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

Limitation of Liability
IN NO EVENT WILL THE COMPANY BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER OR ANY THIRD PARTY (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY CONSUMER) FOR ANY LOST PROFITS OR LOST REVENUE, OR FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SOFTWARE, THE SERVICE OR OTHERWISE WITH RESPECT TO THIS AGREEMENT. IN NO EVENT WILL THE COMPANY’S LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES OR ALLEGED DAMAGES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, EXCEED THE COMMISSIONS PAID TO CUSTOMER BY THE COMPANY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT DURING THE SIX (6) MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING SUCH CLAIM, OR FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($500.00), WHICHEVER IS LESS.

Term and Termination
This Agreement will commence upon its execution and will continue until terminated by either Customer or the Company upon at least ten (10) business days prior written notice to the other party. In the event of termination of this Agreement for any reason other than Customer breach of this Agreement, the Company will pay outstanding Commissions due to Customer in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, Customer will immediately cease use of, and promptly remove from the Applications, all instances of the Software and the Service and promptly return to Company, or at Company’s request destroy, any and all copies of the Software, Service or other information relating to the intellectual property of Company in Customer’s possession. Sections 1, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 will survive termination of this Agreement for any reason.

Miscellaneous
In the event that any portion of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, then such portion will be construed in accordance with the applicable law as nearly as possible to reflect the original intentions of the parties, and the remainder of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect. The paragraph headings herein are provided only for reference and will have no effect on the construction or interpretation of this Agreement. No waiver will be effective unless in writing. This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York. Any dispute relating in any way to the The Company Program or Agreement will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that Customer may assert claims in small claims court if Customer claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law and the laws of the state of New York, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern any dispute of any sort that might arise between Customer and Company. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of this Operating Agreement as a court would. The parties agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial.

The Company reserves the right to update or modify this Agreement at any time and from time to time. When the Company makes changes to this Agreement, the ‘Last Updated’ date at the top of this Agreement will be revised. If there are material changes to the Agreement, Company will notify Customer of any such modifications by posting a message on the Company website. Customer should periodically review this Agreement. Customer’s continued use of the Software and Service after any changes or revisions to this Agreement will indicate Customer agreement with the terms therein. Customer may not assign this Agreement without the prior written consent of the Company. This Agreement contains the entire agreement of the parties concerning the subject matter hereof and supersedes all existing agreements and all other oral, written, or other communication between the parties concerning its subject matter.
