You must read the following terms and conditions BEFORE signing up for our affiliate program. By signing up for our affiliate program, you agree to all of the term and conditions below.
Purchasing with Own Affiliate Link
You may use your affiliate link to purchase one copy of the product you are promoting, thereby earning a commission. We allow this because we are sure you will want to get familiar with its features and benefits. Any subsequent purchases by you or your immediate family using your link will not be eligible and will be viewed as a breach of contract.
Joining our affiliate program constitutes your promise to honor this agreement. We do not manually approve each applicant to this program. When you sign up with at e-junkie.com, you will likely be automatically approved, but if we later determine that your site is not suitable as an affiliate for EnglishConversations.org, we reserve the right to terminate it—the agreement, not your site.
What We Do Not Allow
- Promoting anything in connection with our products that is sexually explicit, violent, unlawful, harmful, threatening, defamatory, obscene, harassing, or otherwise objectionable, as decided by us.
- Promoting discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age.
- Violating laws pertaining to conducting business on the Internet.
- Infringing on ours or others’ copyrights, trademarks, or intellectual property. “I didn’t know it was copyrighted” is not an excuse for such violations.
- Using a domain name that includes the exact terms “English Conversations” or “Interactive Stories.” Of course, you are free to use the individual words since they are pretty common….
- Designing your web site in a way that implies it is an official part of “EnglishConversations.org”
- Hijacking or intercepting other affiliates’ commission tracking cookies.
- Basically just being a jerk!
Methods of Promotion
You must make sure that people do not think that your site is endorsed or created by us. Therefore, you must be careful that your promotion methods do not violate our standards and that you make it very clear to visitors that your website is independent from EnglishConversations.org.
Spamming is strictly forbidden. We hate spam and it damages our reputation. This includes sending unsolicited e-mail, posting on blogs or forums that do not allow commercial advertising, or using any other tactic commonly considered to be spamming.
If you email a list of people, it must be an opt-in list and people must have the option of unsubscribing at any time.
If we catch you spamming, not only will we terminate our relationship with you, but we will also withhold any earnings that you have accrued through our program by means of such unethical and/or illegal methods.
We feel that our products speak for themselves and stand on their own merits, so there is no reason to mislead people about the nature and purpose of our educational products. If we feel that your advertisements are not in harmony with our spirit and image, then we may ask you to adjust your methods.
If you are ever in doubt about whether your promotional methods are in harmony with who we are and what we represent, then you should contact us and ask before acting.
Orders and Customer Service
We fulfill all orders that arise as a result of your referral. These customers are viewed as “belonging” to EnglishConversations.org, so we reserve the right to reject certain orders or refund other orders. This only happens on occasion, but it means that you will not receive payment for these particular customers in such cases. All information about customers is sole property of EnglishConversations.org. You do not and cannot have access to it.
Limitations of Liability
You are solely responsible for all development, operation, and maintenance of your site and its contents. It is up to you to make sure nothing on your site is inaccurate, misleading, libelous, or illegal. That’s beyond our control and therefore beyond our liability. We’re not responsible for any expenses or damages resulting from the way you operate your site or conduct business. At worst, our liability will be limited to the commissions payable.
We cannot guarantee that our site will never be down or never have errors. That’s just not realistic. We are not liable for any consequences, such as lost sales, that may result to you in those instances. You can be sure we don’t want interruptions in service any more than you do, so we will be working quickly to fix anything that arises. We appreciate your help in that regard; if you notice something amiss with our site, please alert us.
Changes to Our Program
From time to time we may make changes to our affiliate program to adapt to changing circumstances. If we make any changes, we will try to give you advance notice and will notify you by email of any change made.
By participating in our affiliate program, you become an independent contractor. You are not in any way an employee or an official representative of EnglishConversations.org in any sort of partnership or joint venture. You merely serve as an independent referral agent.
Should any dispute arise over our relationship, you agree to be bound by the SPIRIT of this agreement as could be perceived by an objective, third party with no ties to either participant.
Terms of Agreement
This agreement is in force from the time you sign up for our affiliate program and will end when one of us says it’s over. Either party may terminate this agreement at any time, for any reason, by giving written notice to the other party by either e-mail or snail mail.
If we agree to end the relationship, you will immediately remove all links to our site as well as any promotional materials provided to you by us. Any sales that may come from your site after the date of the written notice will not be eligible for commissions.
Any abuse, fraud, or dishonest manipulation of the terms of this agreement will result in your immediate termination from this program without notice. Any fraudulent sales will not be eligible for commissions, no matter when the sale occurred. In other words, there is no statute of limitations for fraud in this contract. Commissions you shouldn’t have earned can be rescinded at any point.
This agreement supersedes all prior oral or written agreements between us and you.
Please print a copy of this contract for your records.
BY JOINING OUR AFFILIATE PROGRAM, YOU ARE AGREEING THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND ACCEPT THEM AS LEGALLY BINDING UPON YOU.
