Affiliate Agreement Terms & Conditions

Parties

This Agreement is between A.C.N. 658 868 092 PTY LTD (Business) and you, the Affiliate set out in the Affiliate Registration form provided to you (Affiliate) with these Terms and Conditions (Terms).

Affiliate arrangements

By agreeing to these Terms, the Affiliate agrees to be an affiliate for the Business and join the affiliate program of the Business (Affiliate Program).

The Affiliate Program involves the issue of a unique code provided the Affiliate (Code). The Code will be provided either manually or via an affiliate software program at the discretion of the Business and be notified to the Affiliate by the Business. The Code may entitle the user of the Code to a discount, but that will be entirely at the discretion of the Business.

Where the Business has sales made with your Code at the end of each calendar month, the Business will report those relevant sales to the Affiliate and request the Affiliate send an invoice to the Affiliate in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.

Sales

Term

This Agreement takes effect on and from the date the Business informs the Affiliate that they have been accepted to the Affiliate Program (Start Date) and continues until terminated by either party in accordance with this Agreement.

Process

During the term of this Agreement, the Affiliate will use reasonable commercial efforts, where appropriate, to send customers to the Business by providing their Code to prospective customers for purchase of products from the website of the Business (Website).

The Affiliate is under no obligation to send customers to the Business and does so at its own discretion.

The Affiliate understands and agrees that the Business may restrict certain services or products from the Affiliate arrangement. The Business will use reasonable commercial endeavours to let the Affiliate know which products and/ or services are excluded from their Affiliate Program.

Affiliate Fee

If a sale is made on the Website using the Affiliate’s Code, the Business will record 5%  of that sale (Affiliate $99.50) and each subsequent sale. At the end of each calendar month (Monthly Due Date), the Business will report to the Affiliate notifying them of all relevant sales using the Code (Affiliate Fee).

Promptly following each relevant Monthly Due Date

The Business must provide the Affiliate with a report setting out each sale using the Code during that period and the funds received by the Business from each sale (Monthly Report).

Upon receipt of the Monthly Report, the Affiliate must promptly and within 30 days issue a tax invoice requesting payment of the Affiliate Fees payable in respect of the Monthly Report (Tax Invoice). If the Affiliate does not issue a Tax Invoice within 60 days after the Monthly Report for the month that the Tax Invoice relates to, the Affiliate will forfeit the entitlement to the Affiliate Fee relating to the Monthly Report to which it relates.

Upon receipt of the Tax Invoice, the Business must pay the Affiliate Fees to the Affiliate within 30 (thirty) Business Days.

The Business is only liable to pay one Affiliate Fee per Code.  If a third party makes a claim for an Affiliate Fee (or part of an Affiliate Fee) in respect of a Code, then the Business may apportion the Affiliate Fee under this Agreement among the claimants for that Code at its sole discretion.  Any decision it makes regarding the apportionment is final.
