The Webmaster will receive an email notification when the activation is completed.
  • It is the Webmaster’s obligation to keep the login details safe and not share the password with anyone to prevent unauthorized access to the account.
  • Upon request, the Webmaster will provide verification of the requested information (which includes, but is not limited to: legal age, domain ownership, licenses held (if applicable)) within reasonable time. It is in the Company’s sole discretion to accept/reject certain documents for verification purposes and/or to request additional verification, should an authorized Company representative decide to do so in order to verify the Webmaster’s data and/or identity.

Use of Services

  • Upon successful registration, Company grants Webmaster the non-exclusive, non-transferable, and non-sub-licensable right to use its Services.
  • Company reserves the right to decline or discontinue service to a Webmaster at any time, without provision of reason.
  • Webmaster has no right on service from Company.
  • Webmaster may use Company’s services only on and/or for online assets/domains that are in Webmaster’s duly possession and/or under Webmaster’s duly control.
  • For widget implementation, Webmaster needs to create a widget from within the Webmaster account on widgets.oddspedia.com. Each widget has to be matched to a domain and may be used only on this particular domain.
  • Webmaster can create multiple widgets in case placement on multiple domains is desired.
  • Webmaster can customize the widget based on the available customization options given in the Webmaster account on widgets.oddspedia.com.
  • Webmaster may not make Company’s services further available to any other (third) party.
  • Webmaster can select from a range of available operators, which operators to be displayed in widget on Webmaster’s domain. Webmaster needs to accept and has to obey at all times the requirements of all operators included in the made selection. For this, Webmaster has to obey to the respective Terms and Conditions of those operators or other agreement in place with those operators, as the case may be. In case Webmaster caters to clients from multiple jurisdictions, Webmaster has to ensure compliance with all operator requirements for all of the countries served individually. It is Webmaster’s own responsibility to ensure compliance at all times.
  • The widget may not be modified at all by the Webmaster, besides the configuration options made available in the account.
  • Widget always has to be displayed in full, may not be cut off in form, and nothing may be used to overlay the widget.
  • It is Webmaster’s sole responsibility to ensure that any data and/or information displayed is fully compliant with all local rules and regulations applicable in each jurisdiction in which the Webmaster makes its domain(s) accessible. The Company does not take any responsibility for use of its Services, and cannot be held liable in any way for information displayed on a domain which is not in line with any applicable rules and regulations as they might be locally applicable.
  • Company reserves the right to change widget appearance and functionality at any time as it deems reasonable.

Obligation of Webmaster from Use of Service

  • Webmaster will instantly and for as long as the service is used on any (sub-)page, place a sitewide, visible “No-Follow link” to https://oddspedia.com in the Footer which contains the Oddspedia Logo + easily readable and visible text "Data powered by Oddspedia" which has to follow the design as embedded in the iframe.
  • The Oddspedia logo for Footer implementation can be downloaded from the media repository section of the Company’s website under https://widgets.oddspedia.com/img/static/Oddspedia_logo.svg
  • The Webmaster shall place at least 1 Dofollow link to www.oddspedia.com, linked from any URL inside the domain. The link text must, if possible, be "Oddspedia" or in appropriate relation to the Company's services. The Webmaster has 14 days upon widget activation to comply with this agreement. Read more.

Tracking

  • The widget contains an identifier unique to the Webmaster-domain combination. This is used to track where the Company’s services are used by the Webmaster.
  • Company reserves the right to block certain domains or subdomains from using their services.

Redirection of traffic

  • The widget contains referral links to operators, which are the Company’s referral links, by default. That is, clicks will initially be treated as generated by the Company when generated through the widget.
  • For each operator, Webmaster can add own referral links to the widget (“Webmaster referral links”, henceforth), after which all clicks on links to those operators with an added Webmaster referral link, will be randomly split by the Company upon generation. The split of those clicks will be 50-50 between the Company and the Webmaster. This means that any generated click will be forwarded using randomly the unique identifier of the Company or the Webmaster, respectively, each with a probability of 50%. Each click will be treated as a distinct event and is seen independent of the previous click and allocation.
  • All revenues generated from clicks are for their lifetime attributable to the Company or the Webmaster, as it was initially assigned. Should the Webmaster not have added a Webmaster referral link to a particular operator, all clicks on links leading to that particular operator are fully attributable to the Company and will use the Company’s referral links.
  • To obtain Webmaster referral links, the Webmaster might need to create accounts at and enter into service agreements with operators and/or affiliate platforms. Those agreements are completely independent of this Service Agreement and are solely concluded between the Webmaster and operator. The Company is not at all involved in those agreements between Webmaster and operator and cannot be held liable in any form for any right and/or obligation arising out of such external agreement.
  • Webmaster referral links for a particular operator will be used for all widgets implemented by the Webmaster.
  • Should the Webmaster have added a single Webmaster referral link for a particular operator to the widget, this Webmaster referral link will be used for all clicks randomly attributable to the Webmaster towards the particular operator. The Webmaster will have the option to add more Webmaster referral links, for particular geolocations. In that case, the Webmaster shall define a default Webmaster referral link, which will be used for the random split in case no Webmaster referral link is specifically added that fits the geolocation where the click originated from. In case no default Webmaster referral link is specified, the first Webmaster referral link will be used as the Webmaster’s default referral link.
  • It is prohibited to add incorrect Webmaster referral links. Any link that does not lead to the correct landing page of the clicked on operator is considered incorrect. Incorrect links will be removed and treated as non-existent. Thus, until a correct Webmaster referral link is inserted, all clicks will use the Company’s referral links to that particular operator. Webmaster is responsible to ensure correctness and maintain proper functioning of the Webmaster referral links.
  • Webmaster referral links can be added in the Webmaster account under setup affiliate links.
