As of June 6th 2018
This agreement describes the terms and conditions for participation in the Shibari Academy affiliate program. In this agreement, the term "Affiliate" refers to you (the applicant). In this agreement, “Shibari Academy” refers to Shibari Academy, LLC, a Massachusetts Limited Liability Company, with whom you are entering this agreement. By applying to the Shibari Academy affiliate program you are confirming that you have read the agreement and agree to the terms and conditions.
For a sale to generate a commission to an Affiliate, the customer must complete the order form and remit full payment for the product. Commissions will only be paid on sales that are made when the customer clicks through qualified, correctly structured Affiliate links. Properly coded links are the sole responsibility of the affiliate. Commissions can be viewed on the Affiliate Dashboard.
The Affiliate will continue to accumulate commissions for each paid transaction by the customer for as long as the customer remains a paying customer.
An Affiliate can request a payment when their balance reaches a minimum balance of $25 USD. Payments can be requested every 30 days. Payment processing can take up to 30 days from the request date. Payments will generally be paid out via PayPal.
In the event a customer requests a refund for a transaction for which the Affiliate has earned commissions, any commissions earned on the refund amount will be deducted from the Affiliate’s balance.
Usage and Obligations
Affiliates are permitted to use the Shibari Academy brand and marketing resources available in the Affiliates section of the Shibari Academy application. Logos and other assets cannot be modified. The Affiliate does not gain any trademark, copyright or any other rights to these materials.
The Affiliate will never imply that they are acting on behalf of Shibari Academy and will never advertise Shibari Academy products directly. The Affiliate will never bid for advertisements that compete with Shibari Academy.
The Affiliate will never represent themselves, Shibari Academy or their relationship with Shibari Academy in a false or misleading way.
The Affiliate will not engage in the distribution of an unsolicited bulk email (spam) mentioning or referencing Shibari Academy.
Term and Termination
Either party has the right to terminate the agreement immediately without prior notice.
If the Affiliate terminates the agreement, no further commissions from Shibari Academy will be paid for any past or future customer transactions.
If Shibari Academy chooses to terminate the agreement, any balance greater than $25 USD will be paid to the affiliate within 60 days of termination. Balances that are smaller than $25 will be forfeited.
Shibari Academy will not be obligated for any future payments after termination.
This Agreement shall be governed, construed, and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Massachusetts.
All claims and disputes arising under or relating to this Agreement are to be settled by binding arbitration in the State of Massachusetts. An award of arbitration may be confirmed in a court of competent jurisdiction.
