This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to your participation as a member of the Veeble Softtech (P) Ltd. [hereafter referred to as "Veeble"] Affiliate Program.
a) Affiliates are paid recurring/one-time referral fee for each hosting/vps/server account referred to our services. A referral is counted when a unique customer first clicks on an affiliate tracking link and within 90 days completes the signup process(with payment) and stays active for 60 days. A referral is also counted when a unique customer uses coupon code issued by the affiliate and completes the signup process(with payment) and stays active for 60 days.
b) Affiliates will not earn a commission on the purchase of personal hosting accounts/servers.
c) Affiliate accounts must be active at the time of the referral. No referral fee will be given to your affiliate account for sales that occurred before you joined the affiliate program.
d) Affiliate Payouts are processed with 7 days after you submit Affiliate withdrawal request. In the event we are unable to verify the order during this time frame, we may, at our sole discretion, hold your referral fee or cancel the order. Cancelled referral fees will not be reinstated.
e) Affiliates must earn a minimum of $50 before the affiliate account is eligible for payment.
f) Affiliates are responsible for ensuring that all payee information is up to date in the affiliate system. We are not responsible for lost/stolen payments. The affiliate is responsible for keeping all information up to date including postal and email addresses, name, payment information, tax information or any other personal information that will impact the ability to issue a valid payment. Failure to provide current information may result in forfeiture of any referral fees due to you. Referral fees that are left unclaimed or are returned for invalid or insufficient address information or for other reasons may be forfeited as well.
g) Affiliates are responsible for making sure they are able to accept payments.
h) Affiliates are responsible for any and all fees, taxes, exchange rates, surcharges and other expenses incurred in order to receive their referral fees.
i) Referral Fees may not be paid for a Referred Customer that has transferred from any of our partners or subsidiaries.
j) Because of the high frequency of credit card fraud and cancellation rates, we reserve the right to hold referral fees for up to 60 days for verification. We also reserve the right to cancel referral fees in the event that we are unable to collect funds, the order is fraudulent, the customer cancels within the first 30 days, or if we learn that the referral fee was earned improperly for any other reason.
Referrals that issue a chargeback or are found to be fraudulent (false information, fake/stolen credit cards, selling counterfeit goods etc.) will be reversed regardless of the amount of time that has passed since the signup occurred.
a) Referrals that cancel before you have met the $50 payout minimum will be reversed.
b) Customers using non-standard rates (rates not available through the affiliate program) are not eligible for affiliate referral fees. Non-standard rates include but are not limited to: sales, promotions, email offers, prepaid accounts and discounted pricing offered for educational, government, non-profit and charity organizations.
3. Advertising Compliance:
a) Affiliates MAY NOT offer cash back, rewards or other incentives to drive traffic/sales via their affiliate tracking links.
b) Affiliates MAY NOT use traffic that is generated by pay to click, pay to read, banner exchanges, click exchanges, CPV advertising, pop-up/under, SPAM, purchased traffic or similar methods.
c) Affiliates MAY NOT use cookie stuffing techniques that set the tracking cookie without the user actually clicking on the referral link (for example a 1x1 pixel iframe).
d) Affiliates MAY NOT bid on or use trademark, trademark +, or misspelled keywords for the purpose of PPC on the search engines (Google, Yahoo, MSN, Ask etc.).
e) Affiliates are responsible for ensuring their tracking code is working properly before sending traffic to our servers. Any modification to the links is the sole responsibility of the affiliate. Referral fees will not be paid for tracking errors caused by editing, masking, redirecting or tampering with your links.
f) The use of redirected pages and links to send a user to our site is prohibited. Example: you may not have a PPC link on a search engine that redirects the user to our site.
g) Domain forwarding is prohibited - you may not purchase a domain and set it to forward directly to our site using your affiliate link.
h) Affiliates MAY NOT copy our website or portions of it and display them on their own site or subdomain.
i) Affiliates MAY NOT engage in the advertisement of business-opportunity sites or use marketing practices that attract fraudulent or short-term customers (customers with low retention and renewal rates).
j) Affiliates shall not create, publish, transmit or distribute, under any circumstances, any bulk electronic mail messages (also known as "SPAM").
k) Affiliates are not permitted to provide refunds or credits to their customers and Veeble will not pay referral fees if the Referred Customer has joined a business-opportunity program that is managed or participated in by the Affiliate.
a) Affiliate accounts may be deactivated at any time without warning or notice. Your account WILL BE DEACTIVATED and referral fees set to $0 for failure to comply with the Affiliate Terms and Advertising Compliance contained herein.
b) Any false or misleading advertising or suspected fraudulent activity associated with your affiliate account will result in immediate deactivation.
c) Affiliate accounts generating a large number of fraudulent accounts will be deactivated.
d) Affiliates may not resell hosting. All clients must provide their own payment method and contact information to be eligible for affiliate referral fees.
e) If you would like to discontinue your affiliate status, simply remove your affiliate links and no longer promote them. For accounting purposes your account and personal information will not be removed from our system.
