1. AFFILIATE OBLIGATIONS
1.1 The Affiliate shall promote Safe Ride 4 Kids products in accordance with the current promotional opportunity set forth in Appendix “A,” attached hereto and incorporated herein by this reference. In consideration of such referrals, Safe Ride 4 Kids shall pay to the Affiliate the Commission (as used in this Agreement, the terms “bonus” and “commission” are interchangeable and each shall include the other) set forth in Appendix “A.” Must be 18 years of age or older to participate in the Affiliate Program.
1.2 The Affiliate shall promote and market Safe Ride 4 Kids products using only promotional materials supplied by, or purchased from, Safe Ride 4 Kids. The Affiliate acknowledges that such Safe Ride 4 Kids materials are the intellectual property of Safe Ride 4 Kids and are protected by trademark and/or copyright, and may not be reproduced without the express, written consent of Safe Ride 4 Kids. The Affiliate shall submit for approval of Safe Ride 4 Kids, prior to use, any marketing or promotional materials not provided by Safe Ride 4 Kids. Safe Ride 4 Kids shall not unreasonably withhold its approval of such materials, but Safe Ride 4 Kids shall have the exclusive right to determine the acceptability of such materials. Affiliates may purchase Safe Ride 4 Kids materials for their use in marketing using the tools provided by contacting our marketing manager. In the event of use of unauthorized marketing materials, or misuse of Safe Ride 4 Kids approved marketing materials, Affiliates shall, upon demand being made by Safe Ride 4 Kids, promptly correct or remove any and all unauthorized marketing materials from their use, in any format. Failure to comply with Safe Ride 4 Kids approved marketing may, in the discretion of Safe Ride 4 Kids, result in removal of the Affiliate from this program and forfeiture of any commissions earned.
1.3 Videos promoting the Safe Ride 4 Kids tangible products which provide/outline safety procedures, or advice/instructions on using the products, must be produced and/or authorized explicitly by Safe Ride 4 Kids.
1.4 Safe Ride 4 Kids shall be held harmless for any product liability claims made by a client against the Affiliate or Safe Ride 4 Kids where the Affiliate did not use authorized promotional materials to promote Safe Ride 4 Kids products.
1.5 Product data feeds (i.e. XML, CSV) of Safe Ride 4 Kids available products are not offered at this time.
1.6 Affiliate will be responsible for integrating the Links into their web site(s) to properly enable sales tracking, and Safe Ride 4 Kids will not be responsible for Affiliate failure to do so, including to the extent such failure may result in any reductions of amounts that would otherwise be paid to Affiliate under this Agreement.
1.7 The Affiliate shall maintain a current e-mail address through the Affiliate website. The Affiliate shall be responsible for the accuracy of all Affiliate information entered into the website system. Safe Ride 4 Kids shall not be liable for errors in the entry of Affiliate information by Affiliates or by referred clients when registering for Safe Ride 4 Kids reports or product purchases through the Affiliate website link.
1.8 The Affiliate agrees to file and remit any and all applicable federal or state tax returns and payments due on Commissions paid, and shall hold Safe Ride 4 Kids harmless from any claims or demands for failure to report or remit taxes due by them for Commissions paid under this program. The Affiliate agrees to abide by the Safe Ride 4 Kids Terms and Conditions, Privacy and Anti-Spam Policies as posted on the Safe Ride 4 Kids website, and as modified from time to time.
2. COMMISSIONS & PAYMENT
2.1 Affiliates shall be compensated for any referrals registered under the Affiliate where the referral was not already a Safe Ride 4 Kids client. No commissions shall be considered earned for any referrals made prior to Affiliate’s participation in this program. No commissions shall be considered earned for any personal purchases using Affiliate’s own code.
2.2 All Affiliate commission payments shall be made in US dollars.
2.3 Affiliates shall receive commissions for all paid-in-full sales made through the Affiliate’s ID (unique URL). Sales are tracked to the referring Affiliate through the use of computer “cookies.” Affiliate “cookies” are in effect for 60 days. In such event that a client uses a different Affiliate link within the 60 day period, the First Referring Affiliate will receive the commission. After the 60 day period, if the client returns to the website without clicking an Affiliate link to reactivate the cookies, no credit will be given. Client shall remain a referral of the original referring Affiliate once the client has either opted in to receive a free report or service, or completed the purchase of a product. Registrations for email opt-in, free reports or services (e.g., web- or tele-cast presentations) are not commissionable; however, a subsequent product sale to that client is commissionable. Affiliates may also receive credit for email, website purchases or phone sales not originating from an Affiliate “cookie”, IF the client identifies the Affiliate as the referrer prior to the sale. If you were given a unique discount code, referrals cannot be tracked based on discount code usage alone.
2.4 Referral credit will not be given retroactively after a client has opted in to receive a free report or service, or completed the purchase of a product and did not identify the Affiliate prior to completing said actions.
3. SAFE RIDE 4 KIDS RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS
3.1 Safe Ride 4 Kids reserves the right to modify the terms of this Agreement from time to time. The Affiliate shall be notified by email of any material changes to the Agreement. Safe Ride 4 Kids reserves the right at any time, and in its sole discretion, to terminate this Agreement with regard to any individual Affiliate and the right to terminate the Internet Affiliate program in its entirety.
3.2 We will refuse all applications from affiliates which we believe participate in spyware, adware, spam or parasiteware techniques for driving traffic. We reserve the right to research and investigate affiliates and their activities and, at our own discretion, determine whether or not these practices are in place. Affiliates found in violation of this policy will be immediately terminated from the program and will forfeit all commissions.
3.3 Any questionable behavior or conduct which is out of integrity with the Affiliate program policies and procedures, or which is determined to be intended to undermine or avoid application of such policies and procedures, will be flagged and reviewed by Safe Ride 4 Kids staff and the Affiliate program management. If such Affiliate behavior is found to be suspicious activity, in violation of our Agreement or conflicting with our terms, the Affiliate will be immediately removed from the program and commissions will not be issued.
4. TERM AND TERMINATION
