By ticking the box below, Partner agrees to the terms of this Agreement, and warrants and represents that:
– if Partner is an individual, it has the capacity and authority to enter into this Agreement; or
– if Partner is an organization, that this Agreement is executed by a person having the authority to enter into such agreement on Partner’s behalf.

(a) accepts no responsibility for the content of the Campaign Description; and

- not less than 18 months from the date that the self bill was raised, Affjumbo shall send a letter to the address provided by Partner in the Platform granting Partner 30 days to provide the information Affjumbo requires to enable payment;
- if the information is not provided to Affjumbo within 30 days of the date of the letter, then Affjumbo shall be entitled to retain such unclaimed Commission for Affjumbo’s own account, and Partner shall forfeit any claim in respect of it.

i) not less than 18 months from the date that the funds are available for Partner to raise a self bill for, Affjumbo shall send a letter to the address provided by Partner in the Platform granting Partner 30 days to raise a self bill and ensure the correct details are in the Platform for payment to be made;

5.5 Without prejudice to any other remedy Affjumbo may have in respect of Partner’s participation in Unethical Activities, Affjumbo reserves the right to claim back any funds paid in respect of any related Approved Transactions which are determineda to be as a result of or related to Unethical Activities.
