These Terms and Conditions govern the Affiliate Program that is made available by Torch Paste - The Original Wood Burning Paste® ("Torch Paste®", "we" or "us"). These Terms and Conditions represent the whole agreement and understanding between Torch Paste - The Original Wood Burning Paste® and the individual or entity who participates in the Affiliate Program (the "Affiliate", or "you").
Please read this agreement carefully as it represents a legally binding agreement between you and Torch Paste®. By your use of the Affiliate Program, you agree to comply with all of the terms and conditions set out in this Affiliate Agreement. Torch Paste® may terminate your Affiliate Account at any time, with or without notice, for conduct that is in breach of this Affiliate Agreement, for conduct that Torch Paste® believes is harmful to its business, or for conduct where the use of the Affiliate Program is harmful to any other party. Torch Paste® may terminate or amend the terms of the Affiliate Program at Torch Paste® sole discretion.
2. REFERRAL CODE
Torch Paste® will provide the Affiliate with a specific Referral Code. Torch Paste® will track users who have used the referral code. Only users who make a purchase using the Affiliate's specific Referral Code will be considered referrals of the Affiliate and recorded as such.
The Affiliate is not authorized to modify or alter the Referral Code in any way. Torch Paste® is not responsible for any tracking or reporting errors that may result from any modifications to the Referral Code.
When the Referral Code is used, the user will receive a set percentage off their order. We reserve the right to adjust the discount percentages at any time.
3. AFFILIATE FEES, PAYOUTS AND W9
You MUST fill out a W9 form in order to participate in our Affiliate Program.
You MUST provide your PayPal email address as commission is paid via PayPal only.
It is free to join our Affiliate Program. Every time the Affiliate's Referral Code is used, the Affiliate will be credited with a commission. The monthly commission will be paid out the first week of the following month. There is a minimum payout of $100. If your account balance is below $100 (on the last day of the month), your earnings will roll over month-to-month until the minimum payout amount is reached.
A referral will become eligible for payout ("Eligible Referral") at the end of the next calendar month if it meets all of these criteria:
- The referral makes a qualifying purchase using the Referral Code and has paid in full
- The referral's account remains active and in good standing
- The referral's account has not had any of its payments refunded, charged back or otherwise reversed
- The referral's account balance is at least $100
In the event of any activity deemed suspicious, Torch Paste® may delay the payout by up to 6 calendar months to verify the relevant transactions. Torch Paste® reserves the right to recalculate, void, or disqualify any referral purchases in the event of any fraudulent, deceptive or otherwise illegal activity.
Referrals for purchases made through Torch Paste® promotional or special offers are not eligible for payout.
Torch Paste® hereby grants the Affiliate a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited license to use the Torch Paste® logos for the sole purpose of promoting our service within the context of the Affiliate Program. This license will expire upon termination of the Affiliate's participation in the Affiliate Program.
The Affiliate may only display advertisements that contain Torch Paste® logos or other marketing materials in good taste. The Affiliate may not use Torch Paste® logos in a manner that, at Torch Paste's sole discretion, fails to meet brand standards.
The Affiliate will be solely responsible for its own marketing activities. All marketing activities must be professional and in full compliance with all applicable laws.
Torch Paste® may, without prior notice, require the Affiliate to remove or modify any advertisements at Torch Paste's sole discretion.
The Affiliate may terminate the Affiliate's participation in the Affiliate Program with immediate effect by giving Torch Paste® a written notice of termination.
Torch Paste® reserves the right to terminate the Affiliate's participation in the Affiliate Program at any time for conduct that is in material breach of this Affiliate Agreement or for conduct that Torch Paste®, at its sole discretion, deems to be harmful to its business.
