YOU ARE ENTITLED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM ON CONDITION THAT YOU ACCEPT THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AFFILIATE AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ACCEPT AND ABIDE BY THIS AFFILIATE AGREEMENT, YOU SHOULD NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM.
Company reserves the right, in its discretion, to change, terminate or modify all or any part of the Program or this Affiliate Agreement at any time, effective 30 days after notice to you via email or via other contact information contained in your account settings or by posting a new version of this Affiliate Agreement on the Company Website. Your continued participation in the Program after such notice constitutes your binding acceptance of the terms and conditions in this Affiliate Agreement, including any changes or modifications made by Company as permitted above. If at any time the terms and conditions of this Affiliate Agreement are no longer acceptable to you, you should immediately cease participation in the Program.
As part of the Program, we will make available to you a graphic image or text link that identifies your website as a Program participant (the “Link”). The Link will link visitors back to the Company Website, where visitors will be able to purchase our digital infrared conversion services and related product offering (collectively, the “Products”). You must prominently display the Link on your website. We may require you to modify the Link from time to time. We grant you a nonexclusive, nontransferable, revocable right to use the Link solely for the purpose of identifying your website as a Program participant and to assist in generating Product sales. You may not modify the Link in any way. We reserve all of our rights in the Link, any other images, our trade names and trademarks, and all other intellectual property rights. You agree to comply with Company’s published trademark guidelines made available from time to time. We may revoke your license at any time by giving you written notice via email or other contact information contained in your account settings.
You also agree not to use the Links in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair the Company Website or any other site, create spam or any other unwanted solicitation, or interfere with any other party’s use and enjoyment of the Company Website, their own website or other location of Links. You agree that you will not paste, copy or otherwise impose the Company Website graphic images or Links anywhere without the consent of Company. You agree not to use any of our trademarks or intellectual property or make any representations, warranties or other statements concerning Company, the Company Website or any of our Products, services or policies, except as detailed in this Affiliate Agreement.
You agree to make reasonable commercial efforts to promote the sale of the Products and the Company Website. You agree that you will comply with all applicable laws and regulations in promoting your website and the Company Website. You may not include price information in your descriptions of the Company Website, because our prices may change from time to time. You may not make any press release with respect to this Affiliate Agreement or your participation in the Program.
For each Successful Referral (defined below) Company will pay to you a referral fee (the “Referral Fee”) of 5% of the net amounts (defined below) received from purchases of Products made by referred users through the Company Website. The “net amounts” means the gross amount of payments received from the purchase of Products less amounts charged for shipping, handling, packaging, insurance, and sales or similar taxes, refunds, credits, payment processing charges, and reversals. The Referral Fee rate is subject to change at any time or from time to time, in our sole and absolute discretion. You will be notified of any change in the Referral Fee in the manner indicated above for modifications to this Affiliate Agreement. No Referral Fee will be payable or paid if the referred user to the Company Website cannot be tracked by Company’s system.
A “Successful Referral” is one that we determine satisfies each of the following criteria:
– the referred user must not be a current or past customer of Company;
– there must be a bona fide purchase by the referred user of Products for which payment is received by Company and is not reversed or otherwise set aside as a potentially false transaction;
– the referred user must reach the Company Website by clicking on a Link received by you through the Program, and not be a result of you creating spam or doing anything that would bring the Program or Company into any kind of disrepute;
– the referred user must have cookies enabled on their browser when clicking on your link to the Company Website, when reaching the Company Website, when completing the registration, and when purchasing Products (otherwise we cannot track it);
– when coming to the Company Website and making the required purchase, the referred user must still have the cookie enabled that was placed on their computer when clicking on your website link to the Company Website; and
– the purchase must be within 7 days of clicking the Link and it must be an online purchase and payment (phone and mail orders will not qualify). Our cookies are automatically deleted after this 7 day period.
Note that if a user previously visited the Company Website via the Link on your website and then later returns to the Company Website via a link from another party’s website, then Referral Fees will be paid to the party which most recently referred the user.
Company will make payment of Referral Fees to a third party payment account (PayPal), other payment method as determined by Company from time to time. Payments are made once per month for the month prior to last in order to allow time for returns, changes and order cancellations. You must have a minimum of a $0.01 account balance before we will make a payment to you. All payments will be in U.S. dollars. In all cases, payment of Referral Fees to the Affiliate will be net of: (i) applicable taxes or other withholdings required by applicable law; (ii) bad debts or other uncollectible sums; (iii) legal and other reasonable fees incurred in enforcing this Affiliate Agreement; (iv) fees payable to financial institutions for the processing of any credit card, debit card, e-check or alternative payment method; and (v) any amounts owing by the Affiliate to Company under this Affiliate Agreement or otherwise. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Company is entitled to set-off against any amount owing to Affiliate, all amounts to which Company is or may be entitled under this Affiliate Agreement or otherwise at law, including withholding amounts as security for any pending or threatened claim relating to any matter which is the subject of a representation, warranty or indemnity of Affiliate under this Affiliate Agreement. If Products that generated a Referral Fee are returned by the customer, we will deduct the corresponding Referral Fee from your next payment. If there is no subsequent payment, we will send you a bill for the fee, which bill must be paid upon receipt.
We will track the volume and amount of sales generated by you and will make unaudited reports, summarizing this sales activity available to you through the Program in your account. Through your account, you can check your sales, traffic, account balance and see how your Links are performing. To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and fee accrual, you must ensure that Links between your website and the Company Website are properly formatted.

The Program or any aspect of it or your participation in it can be discontinued by either you or Company at any time in your or our discretion upon notice.

We reserve the right to withhold your final payment for a reasonable time to ensure that the correct amount is paid by the referred user to us.
