Program Terms and Policies for Pogees Affiliates
In consideration of participating in the Program, You agree to the following terms:
BASIC INFO: HOW MUCH, BEGINNING/END DATES & WHEN PAID
The affiliate program pays 35% per total customer purchase through your unique referral code to click through and buy any Pogees listed products. This program begins on October 1, 2016, and will continue until December 25, 2016. Pogees reserves the right to cease affiliate marketing operations at any time for any reason with one or all affiliates. Although not explicitly followed as a matter of policy, if Pogees ceases any affiliate operations, we will provide fair and ample termination notice and individually evaluate existing affiliate campaigns to determine exact end dates on a case-by-case basis.
Payouts will not occur until after each referral’s 30 day return period expires to ensure such purchases are genuine.
Under no circumstances shall You send commercial electronic mail messages as defined in the new Federal spam law, the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 [the “Act”], concerning Pogees Program. For clarification, this does not prohibit you from sending transactional or relationship messages as defined in the Act. Pogees reserves the right to collect, withhold, or cancel any and all compensation related to the content an affiliate sends via commercial electronic mail messages if marketing methods are unethical or otherwise unprofessional from a marketing campaign perspective. If marketing campaigns are found to be below the standards of Pogees's preferred marketing tact, we may request that You alter marketing methods to continue a business relationship with Pogees.
The tools, products and creative assets (collectively, “Assets”) that is provided to You by Pogees, Refersion and Shopify provide valuable information vital to the success of the Program, including information that helps make sure transactions generated by You are properly attributed to You for Payout calculations. Thus, each of these Assets must be used in their intended manners as instructed by Refersion. You agree that You will not corrupt, modify or disable the tracking functionality provided to You related to the Program.
Promotion on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Reddit, and other social media platforms is permitted, following these general guidelines:
You ARE ALLOWED to promote offers to your lists; more specifically, you’re welcome to use your affiliate links on your social media pages.
FTC DISCLOSURE REQUIREMENTS
You shall include a disclosure statement within any and all pages/posts where affiliate links for our affiliate program are posted as an endorsement or review, and where it is not clear that the link is a paid advertisement. This disclosure statement should be clear and concise, stating that we are compensating you for your review or endorsement. If you received the product for free for review, this also must be clearly stated in your disclosure.
REVERSAL & COMMUNICATION POLICY
Pogees reserves the right to reverse orders due to order cancellations, duplicate tracking, returns, disputed charges, and program violations as outlined in these terms and conditions.
Additionally, if we ask you for clarification or more information on any orders or clicks that we suspect may be in violation of our terms and conditions, we expect that you will respond in a timely and honest manner. Below are violations of our communications policy:
You are not forthcoming; you are intentionally vague, or you are found to be lying.
You are not responsive within a reasonable period and after multiple attempts to make contact using the information listed in your network profile.
You cannot substantiate or validate the source of your traffic to our program with clear and demonstrable proof.
If any of the above apply, then we reserve the absolute right to suspend you from the program, reverse orders, modify affiliate payouts, set your commission to 0%, or immediately terminate your participation in our affiliate program. We know that many violations are a result of automated processes; however, it is incumbent upon each affiliate to ensure that it has the appropriate checks and balances in place to pro-actively address these issues and adhere to our program rules.
Your participating website(s) may not:
Infringe on our or any anyone else’s intellectual property, publicity, privacy, or other rights.
Violate any law, rule, or regulation.
Contain any content that is threatening, harassing, defamatory, obscene, harmful to minors, or contains nudity, pornography, or sexually explicit or adult-related materials.
Contain any viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots, or other computer-programming routines that are intended to damage, interfere with, surreptitiously intercept, or expropriate any system, data, or personal information.
Contain software or use technology that attempts to intercept, divert, or redirect Internet traffic to or from any other website, or that potentially enables the diversion of affiliate commissions from another website.
PROHIBITION AGAINST SOLICITATION FOR RESIDENT AFFILIATES IN SELECT STATES
