This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to your participation as an affiliate with the TheButterflySwaddle.com Affiliate Marketing Program, and the establishment of links from your Website to TheButterflySwaddle.com
As used in this Agreement, “we,” “us” or “TheButterflySwaddle.com” means Butterfly Swaddle Inc., and “you,” “your” or “Affiliate,” means the affiliate. “Website” individually and collectively means your website and/or e-mail communications and/or software applications. “Affiliate Marketing Program” means the program managed by or on behalf of TheButterflySwaddle.com by which participating entities place links on their Website that connect to the TheButterflySwaddle.com website and for which a referral fee is earned.
Term and Termination
The term of this Agreement (the “Term”) will begin upon our acceptance of your site in the TheButterflySwaddle.com Affiliate Marketing Program and your acceptance of this Agreement and will end when terminated as described herein. Either you or we may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause. You are only eligible to earn commissions on sales occurring during the Term, and commissions earned through the date of termination will remain payable only if the product orders are not canceled. TheButterflySwaddle.com may withhold final payment for a reasonable time to ensure against cancellations.
TheButterflySwaddle.com will make available to you, or you will create, subject to our approval, a variety of graphic and textual links (the “Links” collectively, or “Link” individually) in order to link to TheButterflySwaddle.com. You and we will cooperate in good faith to develop and implement such Links. Each Link will permit recipients to navigate directly to a page on the TheButterflySwaddle.com website designated by us via a special tagged link format. No Link will be placed on any page or screen that contains content that: advocates discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age; promotes or engages in illegal activities, violates intellectual property rights of third parties; or contains or promotes deceptive information.
You will be responsible for integrating the Links into your site to properly enable sales tracking, and we will not be responsible for your failure to do so, including to the extent such failure may result in any reductions of amounts that would otherwise be paid to you under this Agreement.
You will earn Referral Fees equal to 10% of Net Proceeds, or any other specific amount agreed upon by both parties at time of approval, received by TheButterflySwaddle.com during the Term.
TheButterflySwaddle.com will pay you referral fees (“Referral Fees”) equal to a percentage of the aggregate Net Proceeds received from the sale of Qualifying Purchases actually made from TheButterflySwaddle.com. The term “Qualifying Purchases” will mean all products that are purchased by users during a visit to TheButterflySwaddle.com immediately following navigation to the designated URL through a hypertext link from you under this Affiliate Marketing Program. Referral Fees will not be payable on sales otherwise made from TheButterflySwaddle.com, even if the customer previously made a Qualifying Purchase. The term “Net Proceeds” will mean the gross proceeds received by TheButterflySwaddle.com from the sale of Qualifying Purchases on TheButterflySwaddle.com, less costs and expenses attributable to taxes, shipping and handling, fraud and bad debts, duties, gift wrapping and credit card processing.
Referral fees will be payable within thirty (30) days from the end of each month. If during any calendar month of the Term your referral fees do not exceed twenty-five dollars ($25.00), then you will not receive payments or reports until following the calendar quarter during which your aggregate referrals fees equal or exceed said amount or until the termination of this agreement, whichever occurs earlier.
Reports and Audit
Payments hereunder can be accompanied by reports of sales for which Referral Fees are payable, if requested by Affiliate. You will have the right to have a certified public accountant, acceptable to us, examine our applicable books and records as are necessary to verify the accuracy of payments made to you under this Agreement. You are entitled to conduct such an audit only during normal business hours, at your expense, upon reasonable notice, no more frequently than once per calendar year, and no later than thirty (30) days following the end of the Term or termination of this Agreement.
