To be eligible to earn the Referral Fee, the Referred User must click-through the Affiliate Link provided to you, must deposit a minimum of ten U.S. Dollars ($10.00) and enter a minimum of one real-money contest on the HOFr app. We will pay Referral Fees only on eligible Referred Users, and then only after reaching a Fee Payment Floor of Fifty U.S. Dollars ($50.00), and provided there has been no subsequent cancellation or chargeback.
In addition, you will be eligible to earn a Referral Fee of 30% based on the Net Revenue* generated from the Referred Users attributed to you in any calendar month during the Term. The maximum Referral Fee you may earn from any individual Referred User is $200 during the Term.
We reserve the right to reject registrations or deposits that do not comply with our applicable rules and policies. 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 Website and/or Social Media Accounts and will 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.

This includes weekly updates and calls with our 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.
We reserve the right to review all Referral Fees for possible fraud on your part or on the part of any Referred Customer in order to abuse the Referral Fee mechanism including but not limited the creation of multiple user accounts (used by you, your friends, relatives or associates), the use of unauthorized incentives, financial or otherwise, the collusion with other HOFr customers, the sharing of any Referral Fees earned by you. 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.
Referral Fees shall not be due or payable in relation to revenue generated by the Affiliate’s own play.
Referral Fees are payable in U.S. Dollars and will be due no later than thirty (30) days following your receipt of documentation evidencing the number of Referred Users who registered with HOFr during the preceding month and whose account creation is attributable to you.
