"click" is a partitioned table, but the child tables are all the same.
Here is the current partition:

dev=# \d click_current
     Column     |            Type             |                     Modifiers
 id             | bigint                      | not null default
 idaffiliate    | integer                     | not null
 idsite         | integer                     | not null
 idoffer        | integer                     | not null
 idcreative     | integer                     | not null
 idoptimizer    | integer                     |
 clickgenerated | character varying           | not null
 subid          | character varying           |
 datetime       | timestamp without time zone | not null
 date           | date                        |
 ip             | inet                        | not null
 xip            | inet                        |
 referrer       | text                        |
 countrycode    | character varying           |
 timestamp      | timestamp without time zone | not null
    "click_current_pk" PRIMARY KEY, btree (id)
    "click_current_clickgenerated_idx" btree (clickgenerated)
    "click_current_date_idx" btree (date)
    "click_current_idoffer_idx" btree (idoffer)
    "click_current_massive_idx" btree (date, idaffiliate, idsite,
idoffer, idcreative, idoptimizer, subid)
Check constraints:
    "click_current_date_chk" CHECK (date > '2008-12-29'::date)
