No other pages may be called up that could interfere with the tracking process.

  3. as an alternative, the member can use the prepared browser extension, thanks to which after successful login, the available cashback program will be automatically detected and then assigned to the corresponding member. If the extension is not supported by the affiliate's website, the member is obliged to use the affiliate link.
