5.8 In the event that the Amount Due for a calendar month is a negative amount, the Company will not carry forward or set off such negative amount against Amounts Due for future months which would otherwise be payable to you. If the Amount Due for a particular calendar month does not exceed 100 EUR or the equivalent in any other currency, the Company will be entitled to withhold and carry forward such amount to the end of the next calendar month in which the Amount Due (including any sums carried forward in this way) exceeds 100 EUR or the equivalent in any other currency, at which time payment shall be made in accordance with Clause 5.9.
5.9 Subject to Clause 5.8, Azure Affiliates makes every effort to ensure that Amounts Due to you in respect of a calendar month will be paid by the Company, the Company Subsidiaries and/or Azure Affiliates (as authorised by the Company) within 30 days of receipt of your invoice for the amount due. Azure Affiliates and/or the Company shall have the right to dispute any invoices issued by yourself and may request the submission of additional information to verify the Amounts Due. The aforementioned 30-day period starts running upon confirmation of acceptance by the Company and Azure Affiliates.
5.10 Unless otherwise agreed, all payments made to you by the Company, the Company subsidiaries and/or Azure Affiliates (as authorised by the Company) under this Agreement shall be:
5.10.1 deemed exclusive of any VAT or other tax payable;
5.10.2 paid in Euros
5.10.3 paid either:
184.108.40.206 by bank transfer (SEPA/SWIFT), where a 2% processing fee will apply for payments via SWIFT; or
220.127.116.11 by being credited to an electronic wallet (Neteller/Skrill). Payments via Neteller/Skrill are subject to Neteller/Skrill's acceptable jurisdictions. Payments to restricted countries as per Neteller/Skrill's restricted jurisdictions will not be processed, and an alternative acceptable Affiliate Payment method must be provided by the Affiliate before the processing of payment for the invoiced period; or
18.104.22.168 via Crypto payments, where a 2.5% processing fee will apply. The conversion rates from FIAT to Crypto will be based on a conversion rate within four (4) hours from the time of the conversion to the time the payment has been processed.
5.11 You are required to enter your payment information in your Affiliate account on the Affiliate Program Site to ensure that Affiliate Payments are processed on time (only Affiliates are responsible for such information and the validity of it).
Provided that, in the event that Affiliate Payments are successfully processed and then rejected by the Affiliate’s recipient bank, the Affiliate must provide alternative bank details for receiving the Affiliate Payments, reflecting the same Affiliate details of the Affiliate's account.

you will not be entitled to receive any Affiliate Payments in respect of such Customer. In the event that any such payment has already been made to you in respect of such Customer you will promptly repay the amount paid on receiving notice from Azure Affiliates. Azure Affiliates will be entitled, but not obliged, to set-off any amount owed as a result against future Affiliate Payments.
5.13 Moreover, Azure Affiliates and the Company shall apply the last paid click attributional model in determining whether a Customer is attributed and assigned to the Affiliate for Affiliate Payment purposes. According to this model, the end-user qualifies as a Customer and is attributed to the Affiliate based on the Affiliate’s Tracking Link being the last one the end-user clicked and subsequently successfully confirming him/her as a Customer based on the below timeframes.
5.13.1 The above is determined thanks to cookies recording and confirming the Customer’s last paid click affiliation, which cookies shall have the following duration based on the Customer’s browser.
22.214.171.124 7 days in the case of Safari web;
126.96.36.199 30 days for other browsers.

6.1 In addition to Affiliate Payments to be made under Clause 5 above, where a new Affiliate registers for the Affiliate Program for the first time via the Tracking Links (a “Sub-Affiliate) you will be entitled to a payment equivalent to the percentage notified to you via the Affiliate Program Site on an ad hoc basis, of any payments made to such Sub-Affiliate under its affiliate agreement with Azure Affiliates. Provided that you shall only be entitled to such payments if the Sub-Affiliate submits an Application that is approved by Azure Affiliates.
6.2 Sub-Affiliates may not be directly or indirectly owned or controlled by you or your Immediate Family and you shall not be entitled to any payment under this Agreement in relation to such a Sub-Affiliate.
6.3 In the event that any Affiliate Payment to a Sub-Affiliate is reclaimed under the terms of its agreement with Azure Affiliates or payments are made to you in breach of Clause 6.2 above you will promptly repay the amount paid on receiving notice from Azure Affiliates.

7.2 Nothing in this Agreement is intended to transfer any title, right or interest in such IPR to the Affiliate. Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, any and all rights in and to any of the IPR that may have been granted to or procured for the Affiliate under this Agreement shall terminate automatically.
7.3 Nothing in this Agreement purports to grant a licence, provide any warranty or offer any indemnity in respect of any data that is not owned by Azure Affiliates or a Group Company. In the event that you require access to any such data, you agree that you will give Azure Affiliates an opportunity to secure rights to the same and (if it becomes necessary to do so) you will pay the costs of securing a licence to the same from the relevant third party data owner or either party may terminate this Agreement immediately.
7.4 The Affiliate understands and agrees not to purchase or register/bid keywords, search terms or other identifiers for use in any search engine, portal, sponsored advertising service or other search or referral service which are identical or similar to any of the Property Sites. Azure Affiliates will, when available, provide lists of such keywords, nevertheless the Affiliate is solely responsible to carry its activities diligently.

The Affiliate shall not include the brand name or any word similar to the name/domain name of the Property Sites or any other websites or applications owned and/or operated by the Company or any brand that the Affiliate is promoting through Azure Affiliates. In the event that we determine that you have engaged in any form of such or similar behaviour, we reserve the right to take any action we may deem necessary, including, but not limited to, withholding and forfeiting of Affiliate Payments due under this Agreement, and/or terminating this Agreement with immediate effect without right of recourse or compensation for the Affiliate.
