This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to an individual's or entity's participation in the eGrabber Affiliate Program (the "Program"). As used in this Agreement, "we", "us", or "our" means eGrabber or any of our affiliate companies, as the case may be, and "you" means the applicant. "egrabber.com site" means the site that has its primary home page identified by the URL www.egrabber.com, and "site" means a World Wide Web site. "Your site" means any site that you will link to the egrabber.com site (and which you will identify in your Program application). Save for our obligation to pay referral fees under Section 6, which may be performed solely by us, we may cause any of our obligations under this Agreement to be fulfilled by any of our Affiliates (defined below), on our behalf.
Enrollment in the Program
To begin the enrollment process, you will submit a complete signup form. We will evaluate your application in good faith and will notify you of its acceptance or rejection. Your participation in the program is solely for this purpose: to legally advertise our website to receive a commission on products purchased by your referral individuals.
We may reject your application if we determine (in our sole discretion) that your site is unsuitable for the Program. Unsuitable sites include, but are not limited to, those that:
By participating in the Program you agree that you will not engage in any such activities. If we reject your application, you are welcome to reapply to the Program at any time. You should also note that if we accept your application and your site is thereafter determined (in our sole discretion) to be unsuitable for the Program, we may terminate this Agreement. Participation in the Program is limited to parties that lawfully can enter into and form contracts under applicable law. For example, minors are not allowed to participate in the Program.
Revocation of Affiliate Status
Your affiliate application and status in the program may be suspended or terminated for any of the following reasons:
You may use graphic and text links both on your website and in emails. You may use the graphics and text provided to you by us, or you may create your own as long as they are deemed appropriate according to the conditions in 1 & 2.
When a web surfer clicks through your affiliate link, a cookie is set in their browser that contains your affiliate username. Also, their IP address is tracked in the database along with your affiliate name. When this person decides to buy a product, the script will look for this cookie and/or try to match their IP address to identify the affiliate who will be awarded the commission. Visitors sent through your affiliate link may make a purchase later in time and the commission will still be awarded if the cookie is present in their browser and/or the are using the same IP address as the one logged in the database.
Signup Bonuses / Credits
Upon signing up with our program, you may or may not receive signup bonuses or credits to your affiliate account. These can amount to some form of cash equivalent. These signup bonuses or credits will only be paid out when you have reached the minimum payout amount designated by our Affiliate Program. You cannot redeem these credits for anything else other than what they are, and will not be dispersed until you have generated enough commissions that is equal or greater than the minimum payout amount. If you do not generate any commissions at all within a period of 1 year, our company reserves the right to revoke and cancel any signup bonuses credited to your affiliate account due to lack of performance.
