AFFILIATE TERMS & CONDITIONS

AFFILIATE TERMS & CONDITIONS

Please read the following terms and conditions for the Motorsport Tickets affiliate scheme, which covers www.motorsporttickets.com. You must agree to these terms and conditions which we will deem accepted by your continuation of affiliation unless you otherwise express to us via email to partners@motorsporttickets.com

Terms of use

These Terms and Conditions contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to an individual's or entity's participation in BookF1.com Limited' Motorsport Tickets Affiliates Scheme (the "Scheme"). As used in these Terms and Conditions, "we" means BookF1.com Limited, "you" means the applicant, and "services" bookings offered by BookF1.com Limited. Your participation in the Scheme constitutes your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions and creates a binding agreement between you and BookF1.com Limited.

Enrolling as an affiliate

To begin the enrolment process, you will submit a complete scheme application via our site or by an email application. We may reject your application if we determine (at our sole discretion) that your site is unsuitable for the Scheme.

Linking to our site

After you have enrolled as an affiliate, you can provide one or more links from your site to our site. We will provide you with special link formats (“Approved Links”) designed for tracking and reporting for all links between your site and our site. You will be solely responsible for properly utilising the link formats. We do not accept any responsibility for the incorrect use of the special links / link formats and therefore we shall not be accountable for any loss of fees as a result of your errors.
You are not permitted to attempt to obtain leads by competing/bidding on our brand name(s) or website domain(s), or by any other means than by utilising the links unless you have received our prior written approval.

It is in our interest to keep the site up as much as possible. However, inevitably there will be maintenance windows or other downtime. You accept that we are not obliged to inform you of these periods and that you will be unable to earn commission during downtime and as such no claims for fees can be made.

Paid Search limitations

Do not bid on any keyword, term or domain name containing the terms, misspellings or derivatives of any of our company brands. This includes MOTORSPORT TICKETS, BOOKF1, BOOKMOTO, SPORTSTADION or any additional brand names MST may acquire. You will also not bid on any keyword term that combines a product we sell with the word 'tickets.' This includes any keyword, term or domain name containing the syntax variation, misspellings or derivatives of FORMULA 1 TICKETS, MOTOGP TICKETS, BTCC TICKETS, CGT TICKETS, DTM TICKETS, FORMULA E TICKETS, WEC TICKETS, GRAND PRIX TICKETS or any other product that is being sold through our brands'.

Commission

You will earn an affiliate referral fee as specified in the 'Your Details' section of the online affiliate portal. Staggered commission schemes are sorted by booking date unless a booking has not been confirmed when the affiliate's payment is due (see Commission Schedule for more information on payment). We reserve the right to adjust commission levels (higher or lower) at our discretion with 30 days notice to you, notice of which will be provided via email to the email address that you used to enroll in the Scheme.

All bookings which do not have British Pounds as their original booking currency will be translated in to British Pounds on the date of the booking for commission purposes. Such bookings will be translated into British Pounds using the exchange rates used by the European Central Bank. The current rates can be provided to affiliates on request.

Subject to the terms and conditions of these Terms and Conditions, you will be paid commission for each customer referred from your site through the Approved Link on your site who successfully purchases from the MotorsportTickets.com*. The affiliate scheme relies on cookies to track customers. If for whatever reason, the customer isn't using cookies, or the cookie expires or the customer deletes the cookie, they cannot be tracked and you will not earn commission for any sales that customer may make. Our cookies are set to expire after 30 days.

*Please note: If a user visits our website from a non-affiliate source e.g. Google, and does not have an existing affiliate referral cookie, then a 3-day non-affiliate window will occur. What this means is that if during the 3 days, the visitor clicks through to our site from an affiliate site, no affiliate referral cookie will be recorded. If the visitor initially visits us from an affiliate site then they will have the affiliate referral cookie and the scheme works as normal. The aim of this is to promote fairness by rewarding affiliates for new customers and minimising commission payable for visitors that motorsporttickets.com have already obtained from non-affiliate sources.

If it is later found that the customer's purchase was refunded, we retain the right to withhold any payments to you, or debit the amount from future commission payments resulting from that individual's purchases. Similarly, if you are on a staggered commission scheme, refunded or cancelled bookings may not count towards your monthly booking total.

If at any time the commissions owed to you become less than the total deductions due to refunds as mentioned above, the difference shall be immediately payable to BookF1.com Limited. If a booking changes after it has been paid then the affiliate commission will not be withdrawn and equally no extra commission offered unless it is deemed by BookF1.com Limited to be a material amount. Currently BookF1.com Limited deems materiality to be above or below 15% of the original successful transaction value. Commission may not be paid to an affiliate if the details we hold for that affiliate are not accurate. It is the affiliate's responsibility to make sure that BookF1.com Limited is notified of any change in their details such as email or postal address. We also reserve the right to cancel commission payments if we believe that there have been any fraudulent attempts to use the service.

You accept that commission data provided to you by BookF1.com Limited is accurate and cannot be disputed without substantial reason. Any disputes must first be placed with BookF1.com Limited for investigation. If a genuine error has been made on our part, we will adjust figures and payments as necessary but will not be held liable for any damages relating to the error.

Commission Schedule

Commissions are payable to you on the first day of the second month after which the booking is confirmed. For example, payment for the month of March is due on 1st May. This allows bookings from the period to be settled and minimises the possibility of deductions from cancelled bookings. Any bookings that remain unconfirmed for this period are not due for commission payment and will be re-evaluated on the next payment cycle.

To receive payment the commission owed must be more than GBP £50.00. If you have not reached this minimum payment level, the amount will roll over to the following month, and so on until the GBP £50.00 threshold limit has been reached. If required, the affiliate may contact partners@motorsporttickets.com to ask for the threshold limit and/or the payment period to be increased.

BookF1.com Limited and its affiliates are not liable for any damages relating to late payment of commission.

Payment of Commission

BookF1.com Limited will make commission payments available by the following means. The affiliate must choose a payment means on commencement of this contract. BookF1.com Limited will allow changes from the original selected means of payment upon receipt of a signed letter of authority from the affiliate that they wish to amend their payment means. Affiliates may only amend their payment means to a means that is currently in operation at the time of such a requested change.

1. Bank Transfer

Commissions due can be made by electronic bank transfer. The total amount payable will be the commission due less a transfer fee for this facility on the scale below (which will be deducted from the commission payment):

  • UK and European bank account transfers will attract no transfer fee
  • All other countries will attract a transfer fee of GBP £15.00 to cover the cost of bank charges for this facility
2. Payment by PayPal

Commissions due can be made by issuance of a PayPal payment. There will be no issuance fee for this service.

Please note that your bank or Paypal may charge an additional fee to those listed above to receive payments. It is your responsibility to check on this prior to accepting this method. BookF1.com Limited is not liable for any extra fees incurred.

All payments that are requested not to be in made in British Pounds will be translated to the required currency by BookF1.com Limited using the official exchange rate provided by the Barclays Bank Plc in England on the date that the payment is made. This will be based on the previous working day for payments made at weekends.
