RSP may impose reasonable restrictions on the frequency and amounts that can be cashed out of Your Affiliate Cashier Account for administrative convenience and/or to protect the security of Your account. Further, if the amount due is negative in any particular month, then that negative amount will carry over and be deducted against the following month. In the event, the balance carried over does not exceed US $50 within a consecutive three (3) month period, then the amount due will be voided and cancelled, and RSP has the right to terminate the affiliate agreement in this case.
6.5 HOLDOVER FOR FRAUD TRAFFIC: In the event that, in RSP’s sole discretion, RSP suspects any Fraud Traffic, then RSP may delay payment of the Affiliate Accruals to You for up to one hundred and eighty (180) days while RSP investigates and verifies the relevant transactions.

6.6 METHOD OF PAYMENT: All payments will be due and payable in United States Dollars or such other currency as RSP will determine. Payment will be made in whatever fashion RSP decides; however, RSP will use reasonable endeavors to accommodate Your preferred payment method.

For the avoidance of doubt, RSP has no liability to pay any currency conversion charges or any charges associated with the transfer of monies to Your Affiliate Cashier Account.
6.7 PLAYER TRACKING: You understand and agree that potential Real Money Players must link through using Your Tracker ID or use Your sign-up bonus code in order for You to receive Affiliate Accruals. In no event is RSP liable for Your failure to use Trackers or for potential Real Money Players failing to properly enter valid sign-up bonus codes. Notwithstanding any other provision herein, RSP may at any time and in RSP’s sole discretion alter RSP’s tracking system and reporting format.
6.8 DISPUTES: If You disagree with the monthly reports or amount payable, You must NOT accept payment for such amount and immediately send RSP written notice of Your dispute. Dispute notices must be received within thirty (30) days of RSP making available Your monthly report or Your right to dispute such report or payment will be deemed waived and You shall have no claims in such regard. Further, deposit of payment check, acceptance of payment transfer or acceptance of other payment from RSP by You will be deemed full and final settlement of Affiliate Accruals due for the month indicated. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any overpayment is made in the calculation of Your Affiliate Accruals RSP reserves the right to correct such calculation at any time and to reclaim from You any overpayment made by RSP to You.

13.5 PRESS: You may not issue any press release or other communication to the public with respect to this Agreement, RSP Marks or Your participation in this Affiliate Network without RSP’s prior written consent, except as required by law or by any legal or regulatory authority.
13.6 DEFAULT INTEREST: Subject to Section 9.2, if RSP fails to pay You by the due date any amount payable by RSP under this Agreement, You shall be entitled but not obliged to charge RSP interest on the overdue amount, from the due date up to the date of actual payment, at the rate of 6 per cent per annum.
13.7 THIRD PARTY RIGHTS: Except insofar as this Agreement expressly provides that a third party may in their own right enforce a term of this Agreement, a person who is not a party to this Agreement has no right under local law or statute to rely upon or enforce any term of this Agreement but this does not affect any right or remedy of a third party that exists or is available apart from under that local law or statute.
13.8 OTHER: The failure of RSP to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms and Conditions shall not constitute a waiver or relinquishment of such right or provision, or any other right or provision. If any part of the Terms and Conditions is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Terms and Conditions shall continue in effect.
14. VIOLATIONS: Please report any violations of the Terms and Conditions to Affiliates@redstarpoker.com.
