2. RESPONSIBILITIES AND REPRESENTATIONS OF PARTIES
1. Sign up as an Affiliate
You must submit an Affiliate Program application from our website. You must accurately complete the application to become an affiliate (and provide us with future updates) and not use any aliases or other means to mask your true identity or contact information. After we review your application, we will notify you of your acceptance or rejection to the Affiliate Program, generally within two (2) business days. We may accept or reject your application at our sole discretion for any reason.
2. Obligations of both Parties
Subject to our acceptance of you as an affiliate and your continued compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, advertviser agrees as follows:
I. We will make available to you via the Affiliate Program graphic and textual links to the Program Web Site and/or other creative materials (collectively, the "Links") which you may display on web sites owned or controlled by you, in emails sent by you and clearly identified as coming from you and in online advertisements (collectively, "Media"). The Links will serve to identify you as a member of our Affiliate Program and will establish a link from your Media to the Program Web Site.
II. We will pay Affiliate for each Qualified Action (the "Commission"). A "Qualified Action" means an individual person who (i) accesses the Program Web Site via the Link, where the Link is the last link to the Program Web Site, (ii) is not a computer generated user, such as a robot, spider, computer script or other automated, artificial or fraudulent method to appear like an individual, real live person, (iii) is not using pre-populated fields (iv) completes all of the information required for such action within the time period allowed by advertviser and (v) is not later determined by advertviser to be fraudulent, incomplete, unqualified or a duplicate
III. We will pay you any Commissions earned monthly, provided that your account is currently greater than $100. Accounts with a balance of less than $50 will roll over to the next month, and will continue to roll over monthly until $100 is reached. We reserve the right to charge back to your account any previously paid Qualified Actions that are later determined to have not met the requirements to be a Qualified Action.
IV. Payment for Commissions is dependent upon Clients providing such funds to advertviser, and therefore, you agree that advertviser shall only be liable to you for Commissions to the extent that advertviser has received such funds from the Clients. You hereby release advertviser from any claim for Commissions if advertviser has not received such funds from the Clients.
V. advertviser shall automatically generate an invoice on behalf of Affiliate for all Commissions payable under this Agreement and shall remit payment to Affiliate based upon that invoice. All tracking of Links and determinations of Qualified Actions and Commissions shall be made by advertviser in its sole discretion. In the event that Affiliate disputes in good faith any portion of an invoice, Affiliate must submit that dispute to advertviser in writing and in sufficient detail within thirty (30) days of the date on the invoice. If Affiliate does not dispute the invoice as set forth herein, then Affiliate agrees that it irrevocably waives any claims based upon that invoice. In the event that Affiliate is also tracking Qualified Actions and Affiliate claims a discrepancy, Affiliate must provide advertviser with Affiliate's reports within three (3) days after 30th day of the calendar month, and if advertviser and Affiliate's reported statistics vary by more than 10% and advertviser reasonably determines that Affiliate has used generally accepted industry methods to track Qualified Actions, then advertviser and Affiliate agree to make a good faith effort to arrive at a reconciliation. If the parties are unable to arrive at a reconciliation, then advertviser numbers shall govern.
VI. If Affiliate has an outstanding balance due to advertviser under this Agreement or any other agreement between the Affiliate and advertviser, whether or not related to the Affiliate Program, Affiliate agrees that advertviser may offset any such amounts due to advertviser from amounts payable to Affiliate under this Agreement.
