This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions which apply to your participation as a member of the Mallcom Affiliate Program (hereinafter called the "Affiliate Program"). As used in this Agreement, "you" or "your" means the applicant/participating member.
THIS IS A LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND THE AFFILIATE PROGRAM. BY SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION FOR ENROLLMENT IN THE AFFILIATE PROGRAM YOU ARE AFFIRMATIVELY STATING THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SET FORTH HEREIN AND ARE AFFIRMATIVELY INDICATING YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THIS AFFILIATE PROGRAM AGREEMENT AND THAT YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS HEREOF. YOU CANNOT BECOME A MEMBER OF THE AFFILIATE PROGRAM UNLESS YOU HAVE ACCEPTED EACH AND EVERY TERM HEREOF.
1) Enrollment in this Program.
To begin the enrollment process, you must submit a completed application through our website: http://www.Mallcom.com.
In order to enroll and participate in the Affiliate Program, you must be over the age of eighteen (18) years, or over the age of majority if you reside and/or conduct business in states, provinces or countries where the age of majority is greater than eighteen (18) years. You may not participate in the Affiliate Program in any way if you are not of the age of majority in the state, province or country where you reside and/or conduct business.
We will evaluate your application in good faith and will notify you of your acceptance or rejection. We may reject your application if, in our sole and unfettered discretion, we determine that your site(s) are unsuitable for the Affiliate Program for any reason.
As a participating member in the Affiliate Program you will receive a monthly payment for the commission of sales that we receive from your affiliateID# (assuming that your store has been setup properly as provided by our wizard). Your percentage will be decided by us when we receive your information and depending on the number of sales that we receive from you. Your commission percentage may be subject to change at any moment if our terms are not followed and your commission check will be forfeited.
Commission rates are subject to change from time to time, upon email notice to you and/or notice posted on our site. Note that a commission will only be paid if the visitor to an Affiliate Program approved site can be tracked by the system from the time of the click on your link to the time of the sale. No commission will be paid if the visitor's payment to the Affiliate Program cannot be tracked directly to your site by our system or if full payment for services is not made to us by the customer.
3) Commission Payment.
Commissions due and owing to you under the Affiliate Program will be paid to you directly by the Affiliate Program. Checks are sent out on the 15th of every month for sales from the prior month, as long as your account has accrued the minimum payout amount of $75. If the amount is less it is carried over from month to month until you have accrued the minimum payout amount.
Payments will be sent via regular mail to the address on file. You have the option of being paid by wire or cable transfer pending special approval. Please contact the Affiliate Program administrator via firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for this service.. If the payment is due to be made on a non-business day (Sat., Sun., or US observed holiday), the payment will be made on the next business day.
Our log files will prevail in determining amount of commission sales.
4) Responsibility for Your Site.
While we will review your site(s) for suitability in the Affiliate Program, you will be solely responsible for the development, operation and maintenance of your site(s) and for all materials that appear on your site(s). We shall have no responsibility for the development, operation and maintenance of your site(s) and for any materials that appear on your site(s).
