Your membership of WagerDrive and your participation in the affiliate programs will be temporarily revoked and any pending commissions will be withheld, pending a review, if you are caught spamming. Spamming is not allowed and will not be tolerated! You need to be aware that merchants on WagerDrive are liable to incur expenses in dealing with spam-generated mail and these same expenses will be deducted from your account should recourse be sought. In this instance, compensation will be determined fairly in good faith. Such amount is collectable by law and deemed to have been accepted by you as fair and reasonable and as agreed to by registration as an affiliate of WagerDrive. We do not allow leads/sales from spamming or listing on newsgroups, or any other fraudulent method. In the event any of the above conditions exist, we will invalidate all current traffic and terminate your account without notice.
Should these expenses not be covered by funds in your account we reserve the right to investigate alternative means for obtaining payment including recourse to file a claim against you for unpaid amounts. Should you require further information regarding our spam policy, or wish to report an incidence of spam, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
