Furthermore, each Offer may have additional terms and conditions on pages within the Affiliate Program and are incorporated as part of this Agreement. By submitting an application or participating in an Offer, you expressly consent to all the terms and conditions of this Agreement and of our Privacy Policy.

Obligations of the Parties Subject to our acceptance of you as an affiliate and your continued compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, ArabClicks agrees as follows: 2.1 We will make available to you via the Affiliate Program graphic and textual links to the Program Web Site and/or other creative materials (collectively, the “Links”) which you may display on web sites or physical shops owned or controlled by you, in emails sent by you and clearly identified as coming from you and in online or offline advertisements (collectively, “Media”). The Links will serve to identify you as a member of our Affiliate Program and will establish a link from your Media to the Program Web Site. 2.2 We will pay Affiliate a commission agreed by the parties, calculated based on the amounts actually received by us from Clients (less any chargebacks, bad debts, refunds, returns, credits, VAT or any similar tax, fees paid to any Client, and any deductions made by the Clients for any reason whatsoever. etc.) (“Net Revenues“) for each Qualified Action as further specified below (the “Commission”). A “Qualified Action” means an individual person who (i) accesses the Program Web Site via the Link, where the Link is the last link to the Program Web Site, as evidenced in ArabClick’s or the Third Party’s records (ii) is not a computer generated user, such as a robot, spider, computer script or other automated, artificial or fraudulent method to appear like an individual, real live person, (iii) is not using pre-populated fields, (iv) completes all of the information required for such action and (v) is not later determined by ArabClicks to be fraudulent, incomplete, unqualified or a duplicate.

Accounts with a balance of less than $200 will roll over to the next month, and will continue to roll over monthly until $200 is reached. We reserve the right to charge back to your account any previously paid Qualified Actions that are later determined to have not met the requirements to be a Qualified Action. 2.4 Payment for Commissions is dependent upon Clients providing such funds to ArabClicks, and therefore, you agree that ArabClicks shall only be liable to you for Commissions to the extent that ArabClicks has received such funds from the Clients.
