Tipster Terms

Welcome. Hi, we are TipstersGate and welcome to our portal! We are happy to have you here and hope you enjoy it. The TipstersGate website is provided to you by F-MARKO s.r.o ("we", "us" or "TipsterGate"), a company registered in the Czech Republic under number 25337904

Imagine making passive income from the comfort of your own home. Start your day doing what you love, analyzing matches, choosing your Tips and adding them to your account. Imagine how your client list will grow thanks to your knowledge and success rate. Some of our Tipsters sell their tips in their free time as a hobby, some do it to get their name out there, and some are able to make it their full time profession. If you want to get involved in our community as a Tipster, find out how here.

Acceptance of Terms
Becoming a Tipster is easy. These additional terms for Tipsters (‘Tipster Terms’) are an extra part of the TipstersGate Terms of Use that apply specifically to Tipsters on the TipstersGate. When we say ‘you’ in these Tipster Terms we are referring to you, the Tipster. All other words defined or explained in the Terms of Use have the same meaning here. If there’s any inconsistency between what we say in these Tipster Terms and what is in the Terms of Use, what we say in these Tipster Terms prevails.

Registering as a Tipster, making or selling Tips, or otherwise, acting as Tipster in any way, means that you agree to these Tipster Terms. If you do not completely consent to these Tipster Terms, you must stop acting as a Tipster immediately.

From time to time, we may update these Terms, the Seller Terms, the Privacy Policy our rates, or other aspects of our business without prior notice. It is your responsibility to review these Terms from time to time, and to become aware of and understand any changes. After any such update, your continued use of this Site or any of our services means that you agree with the updated Terms.

Read on for details about your Tipster responsibilities, the process of selling your Tips on TipstersGate and how you can earn money with us.

Becoming a Tipster
No Charge. Becoming a Tipster and putting your Tips up on TipstersPortal is free. There are a few things you promise in exchange for the right to be a Tipster, which are outlined in these Tipster Terms.

Process. Each membership account, by default, allows you to act as both buyer and seller of Tips. This means that when you have created your account and agreed to the Terms of Use, Tipster Terms and Privacy Policy, you can start posting Tips at any time.

Warranty. By posting Tips, a Tipster represents and warrants to the Site and Buyers that he has the capability to analyze sporting events and identify advantageous odds available from gaming sites. He also warrants that he will post only bona fide Tips, which Tipster honestly believes are truthful and accurate.

Disclaimer. The Site makes no promise or warranty that any Buyers will buy any of your Tips or find any of your Tips acceptable. The Site has no control over any Buyers or how they may rate your Tips.

Independent Contractor. Tipster is an independent contractor. Tipster is not an agent, broker, employee, partner or representative of the Site. Tipster selects his Tips entirely at his discretion and posts them at any time of his choosing. Site has no control over Tipster’s means, manner or method of formulating Tips. Neither Tipster nor the Site may bind the other party to any obligation.

Review of Tipsters. The Site allows Buyers to post review and feedback on Tipsters. You acknowledge and accept that we have no control over user reviews. You accept the possibility that Clients may rate you negatively. While we exert best efforts to moderate reviews, it is possible for users to post material about you that is derogatory, obscene, invades privacy, or libelous. You absolve us of any responsibility relating to user reviews. You acknowledge and accept that any reviews are solely the opinion of the users involved and that the same are not endorsed by the Site in any way.

III. Selling Tips

Subscription Plans.
Your account comes with several default subscription plans. Each Tipster starts with them. However, you have the right to create your own subscription plans following some brief guidelines as provided in the Rate Schedule.

When subscriptions to your Tips are sold on TipstersPortal, you will earn the Tip’s listed subscription price minus our Tipster Fee. The ‘Tipster Fee’ is what we charge you for the use of our platform and the services we provide you. Please consult the Rate Schedule for the current Tipster Fee. We may reserve the right to change the Rate Schedule from time to time. Any changes to these rates will take effect on and from the date on which notice of the variation is posted by us on TipstersGate.

Payment of Earnings
These sections explain how earning an income works on the TipstersPortal and important information about payments to your account, and withdrawals and deductions from your account. Take a close look!

We will pay you the subscription plan price less the Tipster Fee (‘your earnings’ or ‘earnings’). In order for us to do this, you authorise us to collect payments for your tips, to credit your TipstersGate account with your earnings, and to distribute your earnings to you.

You can request payments of your earnings when they have reached the minimum thresholds mentioned in the Rate Schedule.

Timing and Methods. You may ask us to hold the balance of your earnings until you request a payment. In this case, we will continue to hold your earnings until we receive a request for withdrawal, unless for some reason we decide to pay you your earnings without a request.

We reserve the right to pay your earnings to you, at any time, at our discretion. When we get a request for payment, we’ll pay you within the period stated in our Rate Schedule. You must provide us with the correct details and payment method when you request your earnings. We may require you to bear some or all expenses incurred by us in paying monies to you.

Potential Deductions. Note that we rely on third party payment solutions to transfer money between you and Buyers. Payment solutions have their own standard terms and conditions regarding refunds, chargebacks, fees and unauthorised transactions (which we don’t control). If a TipstersPortal transaction on a subscription plan is subject to payment agents’ refunds, chargeback, fees and unauthorised transactions, we may automatically deduct those amounts from your TipstersPortal account.

We may also decide to refund a buyer in certain circumstances involving issues with your Tips, or transactions may be reversed for other reasons. If that happens, we reserve the right to deduct from your TipstersGate account any amount that would otherwise be payable to you.

Payment Issues.
We will continue to hold your earnings if we’re not able to pay your earnings to you for whatever reason, including if:

we do not have the correct payment details; we can’t contact you using the contact details that you have supplied; you have not made a request for payment; or you are asking for payment to be made to a person, an institution or a country that we’re legally prohibited from making payments to, or where there are limitations in the banking systems.

Currency Conversions. Whenever we make a payment to you as a Tipster, you are responsible for all costs of converting the amount of the payment into your preferred currency. Your financial institution does the currency conversion and may charge you additional fees (we don’t control either the conversion rates or your financial institution’s fees).

Holding Earnings.

Safety Hold.
We impose a standard safety clearance period of 14 days after the order is marked as complete. Your revenues are only made available for withdrawal from the Withdrawal page following the end of the safety period.
High Risk.
If we have reasons to think that any of the payments made for your Tips are fraudulent or high risk, we can at our discretion hold any earnings on that subscription for at least 180 days. We may release those held earnings during that period if we are satisfied that any dispute or issue about your sale has been resolved. Compliance. If we decide that a payment for any of your subscription plans does not comply with our rules or guidelines, including the TipstersGate Terms of Use and these Tipster Terms, or if we have reasons to believe that you are involved in any illegal activities, we can at our discretion disable your membership. We may also hold any earnings on that subscription for any reasonable period, and may release those held earnings during that period if we are satisfied that any dispute or issue about your sale has been resolved.

We may use the whole or part of your Tips, member profile or services to promote the TipstersGate. This promotional use may include use in public relations, emails, on a features page, or on other sites (e.g. social networks). No compensation is payable for these uses.

Tip Removal.
We have the right to remove any Tip for any reason, using our reasonable discretion.

Personal Information.
In order to facilitate a transaction on TipstersPortal, we may provide you with the name of the Buyer, and also may provide buyers with your relevant information (for example for invoicing). You agree that you will keep the Buyer’s name confidential and only use this information for that TipstersPortal transaction.

We’re very glad you’ve made it to the end of this important document. You can head over and read the Tipster Guide which will run through all the practical and operational stuff you’ll need to know.

We wish you all the very best in selling your Tips on TipstersGate.
