Let’s get the unpleasant stuff out of the way:
You are not allowed to use spamming to promote our products.
You are not allowed to offer cashback bonuses to promote our products.
You are not allowed to buy stuff through your own affiliate link (and it doesn’t work, either).
You are not allowed to claim that any of our products or promotional materials were authored by yourself.
You are not allowed to use Google AdWords to promote our products.
If we catch you doing either of the above, we reserve the right to deactivate your account at any time.
We do everything in our power to support and help all friendly, non-cheating affiliates in any way we can. We will not share any of your data with anyone. The data we collect is used for us to keep in touch with you and make sure you get paid. Nothing more.
There is no minimum payout.
Payments are made twice a month to your PayPal account, with a 30 day delay. 30 days is the refund period for our products. The 30 day delay in payments ensures that you get all of the non-refunded commissions for your referrals.
If you have any questions about any of this, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now, all that and more in more detail:
AFFILIATE AND MERCHANT RIGHTS
All affiliate signups are subject to approval by the owners of SwissMadeMarketing and whitesquare IM (referred to as “SMM” in the following). SMM reserves the full rights on all products and tools offered inside the affiliate program. The promotional tools are not to be considered PLR material.
SMM retains the right to reject any affiliates at any time, for any reason and regardless of any previous conditions. Any attempts to use unethical or illegal promotion methods as well as any attempts to decieve SMM and the operators of the affiliate program will lead to immediate closure of the affiliate’s account as well as the blocking of any further attempts of that same affiliate or proxies of that same affiliate to sign up.
By signing up to the SMM affiliate program you agree that:
– You are of legal age and there is no legal reason that would prevent or disallow you from promoting products as an affiliate and earning commissions from these promotions.
– Any website/newsletter/video or other content (further referred to as “content”) is originally created by you and/or licensed to you.
– Your promotional content and/or website is not in conflict with any laws.
– Your promotional content is not defamatory and does not violate any entitie’s rights.
– Your promotional content does not infringe any copyrights.
– You never do any kind of unsolicited promotions anywhere (commonly known as spamming).
– You will not use any fraudulent methods to generate impressions, clicks and commissions
– You are an overall awesome person with a knack for doing things ethically and legally.
SMM respects the privacy of all it’s affiliates and partners. We will not share or sell any of your information with any 3rd party without your explicit permission. All of your personal information is securely stored and is only used for SMM to keep you up to date on our affiliate system, our offers for you to promote and to send you notifications as you specify in your dashboard settings.
AFFILIATE PAYMENTS AND REFUNDS
All approved SMM affiliates can generate commissions by referring customers through their individual affiliate links, accessible in the affiliate dashboard.
Commission amounts vary depending on the products and campaigns promoted. SMM reserves the right to change affiliate commission amounts at any time (you will be notified in advance if this happens and the changes are never retroactive).
It is the affiliate’s responsibility to ensure that their affiliate links and promotional banners are placed within their promotional material correctly.
All approved, non-refunded commissions are paid out twice per month, with no minimum payment threshold unless one is defined by the affiliate.
The only accepted payout method is via PayPal. All affiliates can create a free PayPal account and must enter their correct payment address in their dashboard to be eligible for payments.
SMM does not approve purchases of affiliates through their own affiliate links.
All commissions are paid out twice monthly, after a 30 day delay, to ensure that any refunded purchases can be deducted from the commissions.
