Hagen Hosting Affiliate Program Terms of Service
By signing up as an affiliate or referrer (hereinafter "Affiliate"), I hereby acknowledge that I have read and agree to all of the following terms and conditions of the Hagen Software Affiliate and Referral Programs (hereinafter "Affiliate Program"). The Hagen Software Affiliate and Referral Programs encompass all Hagen Software products and services, including but not limited to products and services sold by Hagen Software, e-Classifieds, Hagen Hosting, and Active Web Suite Technologies.
1. Affiliate agrees to use only the authorized logos and links provided to Affiliate by Hagen Software and to use such logos in a non-disparaging manner that is consistent with the purposes of referring customers to Hagen Software in exchange for a share of the revenues generated by sales of such Hagen Software products or services.
2. Hagen Software shall pay Affiliate commissions for sales generated by customers who were sent to Hagen Software's web sites after clicking through the affiliate links on Affiliate's web site or e-mails. These commissions shall be in the amount of ten percent of the sales price or US$10, whichever is greater, for affiliates, and fifteen percent of the sales price or US$15, whichever is greater, for referrers.
3. Affiliate agrees that no commissions shall be valid and payable until at least 60 days have passed since the date that the commission was generated as a result of a sale received by Hagen Software, or if the end customer cancels his or her account prior to the expiration of this 60 day period, or if Hagen Software is unable to collect payment for the original sale that generated the commission because of a bad credit card, bad check, or for any other reason. Prior to the end of this 60 day period, the commission shall be considered to be "pending". After this 60 day period, and prior to the date that Hagen Software pays Affiliate for this commission, the commission shall be considered to be "completed". Once Hagen Software has paid Affiliate for this commission, the commission shall have a status of "paid".
4. Affiliate agrees that no commissions shall be paid until at least $100 in new and payable ("completed") commissions have been generated since either Affiliate's signup as a member of this program or the date of the last commission payment.
5. Hagen Software shall pay affiliates quarterly by mailing a check in the amount of the sum of all commissions that are due and payable under the provisions of these Terms and Conditions to the mailing address that the affiliate has listed on his or her affiliate account with Hagen Software. Hagen Software shall pay referrers by posting credits to the referrer's Hagen Hosting account automatically as such credits become due under the provisions of these Terms and Conditions.
6. Affiliate understands and agrees that this program is intended to reward affiliates who refer outside customers to Hagen Software, and is not intended to be used for Affiliate's own purchases of Hagen Software products and services. Affiliate agrees that Hagen Software shall be the final arbiter of any disputes regarding the eligibility of a particular sale for an affiliate commission.
7. Affiliate agrees that the above terms and conditions may be modified at any time by Hagen Software. Hagen Software agrees that, in the event of any modification of these terms and conditions, it will make reasonable attempts to inform affiliates of these changes by updating this page and other applicable pages on its web sites.
8. Affiliate agrees that in the event of any disputes over the validity of commissions earned by Affiliate, the timing or amount of any commission payments made by Hagen Software to Affiliate, or any other issues as governed by these Terms and Conditions or otherwise, Hagen Software shall be the ultimate arbiter of such disputes. Hagen Software reserves the right to refuse or discontinue Affiliate's membership in this program at any time if, in the sole discretion of Hagen Software, Affiliate has violated these terms and conditions in any way.
