Among these visits, a fraction is made by Internet users connecting via mobile networks (GSM) in France and worldwide (hereinafter: the MOBILE TRAFFIC), while the PUBLISHER's website has perhaps not been optimised to process effectively this type of traffic.

All purchases or actions made by the customer during this session for this SERVICE shall then be calculated in the commission to the PUBLISHER. In the case of a purchase of a recurring subscription, renewals related to this purchase shall give rise to a commission to LinkReward. Purchases made during another visit (and therefore another session) shall not result in commission being paid. Similarly, we will no longer be able to pay transactions whose actual date of purchase by the end customer exceeds one year (i.e. 365 days after purchase) and still have not been invoiced.

10.2. LinkReward formally prohibits any WEBMASTER from engaging in any SMS or email SPAM campaign that sends out a large amount of messages containing an URL directing towards LinkReward services.


11.       Ethics regulations and the fight against fraud

Following numerous abuses, operators are seeking to involve all parties in the fight against the fraudulent promotion of mobile services and to strengthen consumer protection. Because the fight against fraud is something that concerns us all and at the risk of incurring penalties, we ask each of our PUBLISHERS to ensure proper compliance with the following rules for managing their website or that of their network of affiliates/sponsored parties:

11.1.   LinkReward forbids the PUBLISHER from implementing any SMS or SPAM campaigns (email and/or SMS) with a mass URL distribution leading to LinkReward's services. 

11.2.  Protection of minors

It is forbidden to promote adult/X-rated services on mainstream sites. By mainstream sites, we mean that none of the traditional websites should include messages or visual references to adult or X-rated material. 

Specific example: In Belgium, mainstream sites that sometimes promote adult services, like Twitter for example, may be used provided that the nature of the service behind the communication is sufficiently clear and unambiguous.

11.3.   No false or deceptive promotion is tolerated. The Publisher respects the regulations in force and, in particular, must not mislead Users about the content, rates, options or procedures for delivering the Service offered in the promotional material for the Service. 

It is not possible to use misleading words such as "Free" or "No charge" on services that are payable.


France/Belgium : Generic banners (like "Play", "Download", "You have a message" etc.) are not permitted for the promotion of services. This is associated with deceptive banners, too vague to truly reflect what the customer will find on the LinkReward service.

In BELGIUM, it is however possible to use "Play" or "Download" banners to promote LinkReward's Mainstream services ("You've Got Mail" or "Free" remain strictly prohibited)

In France : It is not possible to promote LinkReward's services through textual or visual content belonging to the "Restricted to Adults" category, or referring to a pornographic domain (examples: "Porn video" "X-rated film")

In France: There must be consideration of the context in which the banner appears: The Publisher is forbidden from fostering confusion between its internet communication media, whatever form these might take (banners, click to action, etc.) and the context in which they appear - both in their formulation and their position on the page where they appear. For example, the process of positioning a button on or near a video on a video streaming site, suggesting that the user will be able to watch this video while this button redirects towards the LinkReward service is prohibited. 

To guard against this, LinkReward forbids the PUBLISHER from using banners and ad banners not supplied by LinkReward, redirecting to LinkReward services. Within the scope of redirection by banners, traffic can only be sent to LinkReward services via banners produced, certified and supplied by LinkReward. LinkReward takes no responsibility if a PUBLISHER uses unapproved banners on any carrier towards LinkReward services

11.4.   No forced redirection is tolerated. It is not possible to launch an automatic action without the explicit consent of the end consumer. It is not possible to initiate the path with a pop-up that offers no option to exit from the sequence for the User and that redirects them aggressively to the LinkReward Service

The use of the WhatsApp platform to promote links to LinkReward services is prohibited.

11.5.   So-called "Content-locking" pathways are strictly prohibited: This implies that the delivery of content or access to a service other than that of LinkReward cannot be packaged, linked to or conditional upon subscription to a LinkReward Service. Thus, procedures that lead the User to subscribe to a LinkReward service, to obtain a service other than that of LinkReward in return (participation in a draw, finding out winnings, finding out test results, winning a phone, obtaining anti-virus software, etc.) are prohibited.

In addition, the following processes based on unfair, aggressive and/or misleading communication, are prohibited: 

It is not possible to make the User think that a problem has been detected on their phone (viruses detected, app needing to be updated, etc.) 

It is not possible to psychologically condition the User to automatically click on the action and payment buttons and/or automatically enter their phone number.

11.6.   All web and/or mobile traffic sent by the PUBLISHER to LinkReward services must comply with the ethical requirements of each country and the operators of the countries from where the traffic originated. These regulations are presented on the Affil4you platform, in the general T&Cs, and on all official sites of the mobile market's regulating bodies:

Any use of LinkReward banners must respect these rules of conduct.

11.7.   To limit the risk of fraud linked to many cascaded providers, the positioning of a tracker identifying sub-affiliates may be required.

11.8.   In case of suspicion, LinkReward reserves the right to analyse any information relating to past transactions retrospectively.

11.9.  In case of verified fraud or non-compliance with any of the above rules by the PUBLISHER, LinkReward has the right to apply sanctions commensurate with the gravity of the offence: call to order, blocking of the campaign, non-payment of the corresponding pay-out, closure of the affiliate account on the platform or legal prosecution. LinkReward also reserves the right to forward to the PUBLISHER any fines and complaints due to breaches of its obligations and may also claim for damages to compensate for any harm suffered.

Of course, our entire team is at your disposal should you have any questions. 

12. Warranties - Limitation of Liability

In particular, LinkReward gives no guarantee in respect of the forecast amount of the commissions that shall result from the partnership with the PUBLISHER.Moreover, LinkReward does not guarantee that the Services shall be free of errors or that they shall operate in an uninterrupted way.

12.2.

13. Force majeure

13.1. Circumstances or events beyond the control of the parties which prevent the normal execution of the contract shall be considers as events of force majeure.
