  6. Commissions for Qualified Revenue Referrals who created an account before August 25, 2016.
    1. Users who have earned commissions for referrals who created an account before August 25, 2016 will continue to earn commissions based on the real money activity of those referrals who have been credited to you as Qualified Revenue Referrals (as defined below). Commissions for Qualified Revenue Referrals are a percentage of the revenue generated from that player's entry fees after all costs that can be attributed to a specific player have been deducted (\"Generated Net Revenue\"). Deductions include, but are not limited to, contest prizes, bonuses, cost of promotions, FDP spending and other transactional costs associated with the referred players' accounts.
    2. Commission Thresholds - As long as users have at least 5 active Qualified Revenue Referrals, users will earn a higher percentage of Generated Net Revenue as the Generated net Revenue from a referral increases. Each new commission percentage will be applied to Generated Net Revenue at or above the threshold amount required for each percentage.

      Generated Net RevenuePercentage Earned
      < $1,00020%
      $1,000 - $1,999.9925%
      $2,000 - $4,999.9930%
      $5,000+35%

      By way of example, if the Generated Net Revenue from a user's 4 Qualifying Revenue Referrals is $900, the user will earn a 20% commission. If the Generated Net Revenue from a users 4 Qualifying Referrals is $1500, the user will still earn a 20% commission. But if the Generated Net Revenue from a user's 6 Qualifying Referrals is $1500, the user will earn a 25% commission. Commissions are capped at $1000 per active Qualified Revenue Referrals per month.

    3. Qualified Revenue Referral - A Qualifying Revenue Referral is a person, other than the referrer, who was new to FanDuel and created a FanDuel account on or before August 24, 2016 by clicking the referring user's unique referral link and meets FanDuel's eligibility requirements. If a referred player has zero paid plays for three (3) consecutive months the referral will lose their status as a Qualified Revenue Referral. There is no way for a player to regain status as a Qualified Revenue Referral, even if the player starts to play again at a later date.

    4. Commissions for Qualified Revenue Referrals will be paid in FanDuel Points (\u201cFDP\u201d) at a rate of 2,400 points for every $1 of commission earned.

  7. Distribution of Commissions and Rewards.Determination of whether a FanDuel user successfully obtained any Qualifying Referrals, and the distribution of awards will occur at least once per month, generally within ten days of the end of each month. Payment will be made directly into the user's FanDuel account or FDP account, depending on the type of commission earned.

  8. Additional Terms Applicable to All Referrals.
    1. Tracking Referrals - Referrals will only be credited if they create a FanDuel account after clicking on a referral link. Referral links are available in the FanDuel Referral Center, and can be provided via an email generated from the Referral Center, shared via Facebook or Twitter from the Referral Center, or via a system generated challenge link for a specific contest. If a player signs up without using a referral link, we will not be able to manually credit a user for the referral.

    2. Disqualifications. Users will not receive credit for referring themselves, or any member of their immediate family or household. Qualifying Referrals cannot have an existing FanDuel account. An account established for the primary purpose of collecting referral fees will not receive credit for referrals. Payment and withdrawal information may be reviewed in order to ensure that the referrer is not funding the referred in order to take advantage of the referral program. Referrals determined not to follow these rules may have payments suspended at any time. Commissions earned from referred players who have not followed program rules may be retroactively removed from user accounts, and user's violating program rules may face suspension from the FanDuel referral program. If one of your referrals is deemed (through the use of a promo code or other tracking) to have been introduced to FanDuel via another source, we will not pay referral fees to you for that user. All referrals and accounts are subject to review. FanDuel reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to suspend or disqualify an account from the referral program or nullify the payment of certain referral credits if it determines such referrals to be inconsistent with the proper spirit of the FanDuel Referral Program.

    3. Taxes - You are responsible for paying any sales, use or other taxes related to any commissions awarded to you in connection with the Referral Program. FanDuel reserves the right to withhold taxes from commissions, as appropriate.

    4. Marketing - All marketing activities conducted as part of your recruiting efforts for the FanDuel referral program must meet the following requirements:
      1. Follow all applicable laws.
