a) PlayUKinternet 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 that 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 themselves.
c) Products and/or services represented by LottaRewards may be canceled or reversed at the sole discretion of the respective provider of said service or product at any time and for any lawful 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 and/or reversed by the respective provider as aforesaid.
d) The final payout of commission is subject to a formal audit and thus figures paid may vary from the figures seen on the LottaRewards website.
e) Commission is paid for the lifetime of all referred players’ purchases provided the referring affiliate account is active. To remain active an affiliate needs to continue promoting the products and/or services of PlayUKinternet.
f) An inactive account is considered to be any affiliate account that has not met any one of the following minimum requirements within a rolling 3 month period:
1. Generated 100 banner impressions; or
2. Generated 10 clicks on any form of tracking link (banner or contextual); or
3. Generated 1 signup.
No commission will be payable after an account has been deemed inactive. An account can be reactivated by way of meeting one of the above requirements and thereafter requesting reactivation with an affiliate manager. If the account is reactivated, commission becomes payable from the month in which reactivation took place. No commission will be retro-actively paid out for months of inactivity and commission will not carry over when an account is in the inactive state.
8. Commission owing to a member will be calculated at the end of every calendar month by LottaRewards, subject to clause 7 (above). Payments will be made by bank transfer, Moneybookers transfer, Neteller transfer, EFT or Wire in either US, Euro or Pounds to the member within 15 (fifteen) days after the last day of the calendar month during which sales were made.
9. LottaRewards will provide the member 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.
10. Should a member dispute any aspect of a statement or the amount of commission to be paid, such dispute will be referred to arbitration.
11. Should commission earned for any given month not exceed the sum of £50, €75 or $90, 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.

In this instance any sub-affiliate commission due to the referring member will no longer be applicable.
14. 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.

16. This commission will be 10% of the commission earned by the sub-affiliate and will be calculated monthly. Commission figures will appear under the 'TOTAL INCOME FROM REFERRAL AFFILIATES' section of the general report at the beginning of each month for the previous month’s commission or any equivalent section within the member’s area.
17. Affiliates do not have automatic access to their sub-affiliates details but they may request certain details directly from the LottaRewards program manager.
