14. Referral system 
Please note that these Rules are in addition to the Terms of Use governing your use of DonkHunter’s website as well as any agreement (if one exists) between you and DonkHunter or any of its subsidiaries and affiliates related to your interactions with DonkHunter.


14.1 Who is eligible to be a referrer/inviter?

Anyone may be a referrer/inviter who (a) is a legal resident of his/her country, (b) is of legal age where they live, and (c) has an Donkhunter account in good standing. Referrers/inviters can be any type of DH user.

14.2 Who is eligible to be a referee/invitee?

Your friends, family, and other people you know (but not yourself) may be eligible to be referees/invitees. To determine eligibility, keep in mind the following stipulations:
Eligible referees/invitees for those who uses DonkHunter services:
To receive a Referral Reward for referring someone who orders services through an DonkHunter, your referee/invitee must (a) be a new DH user of that service, (b) meet the conditions DH has for using its services, and (c) complete the actions required by the specific referral program.

If you are providing DH with the contact information for your referees/invitees, you represent that you have the right to provide that information.


DonkHunter wants you to refer your friends and earn Referral Rewards, but this must be used only for personal and non-commercial purposes. This means that you can refer people that you know. You agree that you will not:

Try to get referees/invitees by spamming, bulk emailing, or sending large numbers of unsolicited emails. The only people you should be emailing are people you know personally;

Use, display, or manipulate DH intellectual property (such as DH's logos, trademarks, and copyright-protected works) in any way, except as to identify yourself as an DH user, DH referrer/inviter, or referrer/inviter for DH;

Create or register any (i) businesses, (ii) URLs, (iii) domain names, (iv) software application names or titles, or (v) social media handles or profiles that include the word "Donkhunter" or any of Donkhunter's other trademarks or any words that are confusingly similar to Donkhunter's trademarks.

Use DH’s trademarks as your social media profile picture or wallpaper or use any of DH's copyright-protected works (such as graphics, photos, images, drawings, and screenshots from DonkHunter's website or app) without DH's express written permission;

Purchase keywords (including, but not limited to Google AdWords) that contain any of DH's trademarks;

Make misleading claims about DonkHunter, use offensive/abusive content, create fake websites/webpages/social media profiles/apps, misrepresent your connection to DonkHunter, or otherwise make any false or misleading statements to get a referee/invitee to use your code; or

Use your referral code in any manner that violates the law or the rights of anyone else.

Remember, when you share your referral code, you should explain that you are an DonkHunter referrer.

14.3 How do I earn my Referral Reward as a referrer/inviter?

As long as you and your referee/invitee follow these Rules and the Terms of Use governing your use of DonkHunter’s services, you should receive your Referral Reward after your referee/invitee collects rake in any poker room in our offer after signing up to said room using our referral code and completes the requirements for the particular Referral Reward. 

You’ll receive your rewards monthly as based on the rake collected by the player you referred. The rates for these rewards may vary according to the room the player chooses to play. These payments are due 30 days after we have received from the poker room (usually 15th~20th of the next month).

Referrer receives lifetime monthly payments ( % or rake paid by customers referred by him in any Poker room*). If room closes, shaves, terminates its affiliate program or if referrer doesn’t comply these T&C the deal can be terminated.

Minimal amount of monthly rake of referrers players is $200. Minimal payment to referrer - $5.

Percent for referred players is counted according to the deal in place for the poker room select (Gross or Net revenue). Please contact us to clarify it.

The decision of the site administration in disputable situations is always final.
Referral Rewards are discretionary and the amount of a Referral Reward and the requirements to get it can vary both by poker room and within a poker room. As a result, if your referee/invitee signs up in a poker room that is different from yours, they may receive a different referral offer than the one stated in our website. That means you might end up with a different Referral Reward than you thought. 

The requirements for receiving, and the amounts of, Referral Rewards are subject to change at DonkHunter's sole discretion. Referral Rewards in the form of DonkCoins are not transferable, have no cash value, and may expire.
14.4 Termination and changes

DonkHunter reserves the right to change, end, or pause, in whole or in part, any referral program, as well as any referrer/inviter's or referee/invitee's ability to participate in any referral program or receive Referral Rewards at any time for any reason, including suspected fraud (including by either the referrer and/or referee/invitee), abuse, or any violation of these Rules. If DonkHunter ends any referral program, any unused or unredeemed DonkCoins may be forfeited at that time, provided we give you 14 days of notice to use or redeem your DonkCoins.
DonkHunter may update these Rules at any time. If DonkHunter makes an update, DonkHunter will post the update on the donkhunter.com website and provide you notice of the update. Continued participation in any referral program after any update will mean that you have agreed to the update.

Cookies are small text files that your internet browser stores on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification of the user. Should the user visit certain pages of the website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the website can tell that the user clicked on the ad and proceeded to that page.

Each Google AdWords advertiser has a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked using the website of an AdWords advertiser. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for the AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page.
