Merchant provided Terms of Agreement:
Hubcaps.com Affiliate Agreement This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to an individual’s or entity’s participation in the Hubcaps.com Affiliate Program (the “Program”). As used in this Agreement, “we” (and “us” and “our”) means Hubcaps.com, affiliated web sites and companies, and “you” (and “your”) means the applicant. “Site” means a World Wide Web site and, depending on the context, refers either to our site at http://www.hubcaps.com and http://www.hubcaps.org, or to your site. Save for our obligation to pay referral fees under Section 4, 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 on our behalf. 1. How Do I Enroll in Your Affiliate Program? To begin the enrollment process you must submit a completed Affiliate Program application. Upon receipt of your application we will evaluate it and notify you of its acceptance or rejection. Although we hope your application will be successful, we reserve the right to reject or cancel applications for any or no reason. For example, we may reject or cancel your application if we determine that your site is unsuitable for the Program, including if it: A. Promotes sexually explicit materials B. Promotes violence C. Promotes discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age D. Promotes illegal activities E. Incorporates any materials which infringe or assist others to infringe on any copyright, trademark or other intellectual property rights or to violate the law F. Includes “Hubcaps.com”, “Hubcaps.org” or variations or misspellings thereof in its domain name G. Is otherwise in any way unlawful, harmful, threatening, defamatory, obscene, harassing, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable to us in our sole discretion. H. Purchase or bid for placement of any of Hubcaps.com’s trademarked company names. These names include: (Hubcaps.com – Hubcaps.org) and/or any variation of our trademarked names, service marks or copyrighted terms and logos. I. Contains software downloads that potentially enable diversions of commission from other affiliates in our program. J. Utilizes Pop-Up, Pop-Under, or automatic Redirects to link to our site. Any method that automatically plants an affiliate cookie is strictly prohibited. The use of our Full Page Creative is fine, however, any method that automatically redirects the customer to Hubcaps.com’s web site by execution of an affiliate link is in violation of the Affiliate Program Agreement. The customer must click on a Hubcaps.com affiliate link to set the affiliate cookie. K. You may not create or design your web site any other web site that we may operate, explicitly or implied in a manner which resembles our web site nor design your web site in a manner which leads customers to believe you are Hubcaps.com or any other affiliated business. Our vendors, consultants and employees are not eligible to become Affiliates. Resellers may not purchase products under this program and are not eligible to become Affiliates. 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 (at our sole discretion) to be unsuitable for the Program, we may terminate this Agreement. Affiliates who are terminated from the Program are forbidden to reapply at any time in the future. Any such attempts to do so will result in commissions not being issued. 2. Links on Your Site We grant you a revocable, non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free license for the duration of the term of this Agreement, solely for purposes of facilitating referrals from your site to our site, to establish and maintain lists, links and search boxes as detailed below: Product Links: You may promote any product in the Hubcaps.com product offering. It is the responsibility of the affiliate partner to ensure these links are up to date at all times. Offers may be withdrawn at any time. This agreement does not include any other type of product or products located in any other part of our site or any products not fulfilled directly by Hubcaps.com – unless a specific program is in place with the fulfillment partner. You may display on your site a short description, review, or other reference for product promotion. You will be responsible for the content, style and placement of these references. Suggested graphics and descriptive texts may be made available to you and you are encouraged to use them. You will provide a special link (as defined below) from the Product reference on your site to the corresponding Hubcaps.com entry. Each link will connect directly to a single item or product category in the Hubcaps.com online catalog, using a special link format that we give you (a “special” link). You may add or delete Products (and related links) from your site at any time without our approval. The content and embedded images from the Hubcaps.com web site may be used for reference purposes only. Partners are not allowed to spider the Hubcaps.com site to obtain our content and contextual images. Any affiliate who attempts to do so will be revoked from the program and any outstanding commissions will also be forfeited. Only materials provided via our affiliate services area may be used for product promotion. The primary product image from the Hubcaps.com web site may be used as well. General Link to Hubcaps.com Homepage: You may provide a general link on your site to our homepage. We will provide you with guidelines and graphical artwork to use in linking to the Hubcaps.com homepage. Except for the license granted under this Section 2, you do not obtain any rights under this Agreement in any intellectual property, including, without limitation, any intellectual property with respect to the Special Links, link formats, technical specifications, guidelines or graphical artwork referenced above, or with respect to the Hubcaps.com domain name. 3. Order Processing We will process Product orders placed by customers who follow Special Links from your site to the Hubcaps.com site. We reserve the right to reject orders that do not comply with any requirements that we periodically may establish. We will be responsible for all aspects of order processing. Among other things, we will prepare order forms; process payments, cancellations and returns; and handle customer service. We will track sales made to customers who purchase Products using Special Links from your site to our site and will send you reports summarizing sales activity. The form, content and frequency of the reports may vary from time to time at our discretion. To permit accurate tracking, reporting and fee accrual, you must ensure that the Special Links between your site and our site are properly formatted. We will not be liable for paying referral fees on purchases that are not correctly tracked and reported because the links between your site and our site are not properly formatted. 4. Referral Fees For a product sale to generate a referral fee, the customer must follow a Special Link (in the format specified by us) from your site to the Hubcaps.com site; purchase the Product on the Hubcaps.com site using our automated ordering system; accept delivery of the Product at the delivery destination and remit full payment to Hubcaps.com. We will pay referral fees during the cookie session life of 60 calendar days, unless the customer comes to the Hubcaps.com site through another affiliate or link tracked directly by Hubcaps.com marketing, advertising, or search engine optimization. Further, we will not pay referral fees on any Products purchased from any site operated by us other than the Hubcaps.com site. In addition, Products listed in the Hubcaps.com catalog or in search results as “out of print”, “hard to find”, “special order” (or other words to similar effect indicating that a product is not readily available for delivery) are not eligible for any referral fees. Gift certificates are not eligible to earn referral fees. You can however still be credited for commissions from sales that originated from your site via phone, fax, and/or mail orders as long as the customer specifies that they found us through your web site. Failure of the customer to accurately disclose this information will release us of the liability to pay out those particular commissions. Products that are entitled to earn referral fees under the rules set forth above are hereinafter referred to as “Qualifying Products”. In addition, you may not directly or indirectly offer any person or entity any consideration or incentive (including, without limitation, payment of money or awarding of any benefits) for using Special Links on your site to access our site (e.g.: by implementing any “rewards” Program for persons or entities who use Special Links on your site to access our site). If we determine, in our sole discretion, that you have offered any person or entity any such consideration or incentive, we may (without limiting any other rights or remedies available to us) withhold any referral fees otherwise payable to you under this Agreement. “Session” shall mean the period beginning upon a visitor’s entry to our site via a Tagged Link (regardless of whether the visitor leaves and then returns to the site) and ending 60 days thereafter if the visitor accepts “cookies” from our site (see explanation below). Any Session in progress will automatically terminate upon the expiration or termination of this Agreement or upon the visitor deleting our cookie. Note regarding Net Sales – Net Sales include only “shipped” sales. Orders entered for which the product does not ship are not reported as sales. Note regarding “Cookies”: To keep track of the Session, we use a small text file called a “cookie” that is placed on the hard drive of the visitor’s computer. Some web browsers permit users to elect not to receive cookies. Only visitors who accept cookies can be tracked for referral fees. You understand that no referral fee can be paid for any purchase made by a visitor who does not accept “cookies” or who has deleted our “cookies” during a session. 5. Fee Payment We will pay you referral fees on a monthly basis when you have met the minimum requirement of $50.00. Approximately 30 days following the end of each calendar month, we will send you payment for the referral fees earned on Qualifying Products that were dispatched during that month, less any taxes that we are required by law to withhold. However, if the fees payable to you for any calendar month are less than $50.00, we will hold those fees until the total amount due is at least $50.00 or (if earlier) until this Agreement is terminated. If a Product that generated a referral fee is returned by the customer, we will deduct the corresponding fee from your next payment. If there is no subsequent payment, we will send you an invoice for the fee. Commissions will be paid for new customers only. If customers return to our web site through any other links, other affiliates web pages, or on their own they will be considered our customer and any commissions will not be accrued. A New Customer is defined as a Hubcaps.com customer who has never previously purchased at our site, as determined by us in our sole discretion based on a comparison of our existing customer database with each customer’s name, e-mail address, billing address, credit card number and such other factors as we may determine. Our determination of whether a customer qualifies as a New Customer and the amount of the commissions payable to you will be final and binding upon you. A. We will pay you 10% of all sales. The category names listed in Section 5 point A; when used in this agreement have special and specific connotation and have no relation to their everyday use. The category names pertain specifically to those products chosen and categorized at will by Hubcaps.com. The use of such chosen names does not indicate that products that would generally pertain to these categories will be included in the category. Product and category allocation is at the full discretion of Hubcaps.com and may change at will without any prior notification. To receive a copy of our product to category association please e-mail [email protected] B. In addition Hubcaps.com pays “Special Incentives” and bonuses from time to time. 6. Policies and Pricing For the avoidance of doubt, customers who buy Products through this Program will be customers of Hubcaps.com. Accordingly, all Hubcaps.com rules, policies and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service and Product sales will apply to those customers. Such policies and operating procedures may be changed at any time. For example, Hubcaps.com will determine the prices to be charged for Products sold under this Program in accordance with its own pricing policies. Product prices and availability may vary from time to time. Because price changes may affect Products that you already have listed on your site, we recommend you do not include price information in your Product descriptions. Hubcaps.com will use commercially reasonable efforts to present accurate information, but we cannot guarantee the availability or price of any particular Product. 7. Identifying Yourself as an Affiliate We will make available to you a small graphic image that identifies your site as a Program participant. You must display this logo or the phrase “In association with Hubcaps.com” somewhere on your site. We may modify the graphic image from time to time. In addition, we encourage (but do not require) you to include a link to the Hubcaps.com homepage at http://www.hubcaps.org. You may not make any press release with respect to this Agreement or your participation in the Program without our prior written consent, which may be given or withheld in our sole discretion. You may e-mail [email protected] if you wish to get written consent. 8. Limited License We grant you a nonexclusive, revocable right to use the materials described in Section 2 and such other images for which we grant express permission, solely for the purpose of identifying your site as a Program participant and to assist in generating Product sales. You may not modify the icon or any of our images in any way. We reserve all of our rights in the icon, any other images, our trade names and trademarks, and all other intellectual property rights. We may revoke your license at any time by giving you written notice. 9. Responsibility for Your Site You will be solely responsible for the development, operation and maintenance of your site and for all materials that appear on your site. For example, you will be solely responsible for: the technical operation of your site and all related equipment; creating and posting Product descriptions on your site and linking those descriptions to the Hubcaps.com catalogue using Special Links and special link formats provided by us; the accuracy and appropriateness of materials posted on your site (including, among other things, all Product-related materials) ensuring that materials posted on your site do not breach or infringe upon the rights of any third party (including, for example, copyrights, trademarks, privacy or other personal or proprietary rights; ensuring that materials posted on your site are not defamatory or illegal. We disclaim all liability for these matters. Further, you will indemnify and hold us harmless from all claims, damages and expenses (including, without limitation, legal fees) relating to the development, operation, maintenance and contents of your site. 10. Term of the Agreement The term of this Agreement will begin upon our acceptance of your Program application and will end when terminated by either party. Either you or we may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause, by giving the other party written notice of termination. You are only eligible to earn referral fees on sales of Qualifying Products occurring during the term and fees earned up to the date of termination will remain payable only if the related orders are not canceled or returned. We may withhold your final payment for a reasonable time to ensure that the correct amount is paid. Upon termination of this Agreement, you must promptly return to us, or at our request, destroy any and all of our intellectual or proprietary property, information and/or materials in your possession and, subject to receiving written consent to the contrary from us, remove all hypertext links to our site from your site. 11. Modification We may modify any of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, at any time and at our sole discretion, by posting a change notice or a new agreement on our site. Modifications may include, for example, changes in the scope of available referral fees, fee schedules, payment procedures and Program rules. IF ANY MODIFICATION IS UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU, YOUR ONLY RECOURSE IS TO TERMINATE THIS AGREEMENT. YOUR CONTINUED PARTICIPATION IN THE Program FOLLOWING OUR POSTING OF A CHANGE NOTICE OR NEW AGREEMENT ON OUR SITE WILL CONSTITUTE BINDING ACCEPTANCE OF THE CHANGE. 12. Relationship of Parties You and we are independent contractors and nothing in this Agreement will create any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative, or employment relationship between the parties or our respective affiliates. You will have no authority to make or accept any offers or representations, guarantees or warranties on our behalf or our affiliates’ behalf, including with respect to our or our affiliates Products or services.
