Affiliate Agreement

See the program overview for higher level details.

This Affiliate Agreement ("Agreement") is made between PrestoPhoto, Inc. ("Company") and you ("Affiliate"). An "Affiliate Program" ("Program") is where a person, entity, affiliate or its agent uses promotional methods to drive traffic to Company's web site to earn financial compensation ("Commissions") for "Qualifying Sales" (as defined by the Company) referred by such "Affiliate" via an action made by a "Visitor" (any person or entity that is not the "Affiliate" or the Affiliate's agent) through an Internet connection ("Link") to www.company.com via an authorized promotional method used by "Affiliate". Company compensates the "Affiliate", in accordance with this Agreement and the Program Payout specifications.

Terms and conditions

In consideration of the promises set forth below, we agree as follows:
  1. Affiliate's Responsibilities.
    1. Affiliate will link its site to areas within Company's site using URLs with an embedded URL Affiliate Code (the "Required URLs"). Affiliate may post as many links to the Required URLs and the rest of Company's site as it likes on Affiliate's site. The position, prominence and nature of links on the Affiliate's site will be in the discretion of Affiliate. You may not place Required URLs where advertising is forbidden, such as in newsgroups, message boards, blogs, unsolicited email and other types of spam, link farms, counters, chatrooms, or guestbooks.
    2. Affiliate agrees not to make any representations, warranties or other statements concerning Company, Company's site, any of Company's products or services, or Company's site policies, except as expressly authorized by Company. Affiliate agrees to represent Company's services in a manner consistent with all Company.com site messaging. Affiliate agrees not to make any press releases or promotional activity with respect to this Agreement or its participation in the Program without Company's prior written consent, which may be given or withheld in Company's sole discretion. Affiliate agrees to use ethical and legal business practices. Any conduct suspected as fraudulent, abusive or otherwise illegal activity by Affiliate as determined by Company is grounds for immediate termination of this Agreement and deactivation of Your Account. In such an event, any earned Commissions will not be payed. Affiliate shall not cause any Qualifying Sales to be made that are not in good faith, including, but not limited to, using any device, program, robot, Iframes, or hidden frames. Multiple Leads from the same individual, entity or IP address may be considered a non-bona fide "Qualifying Sale". Affiliate shall not earn Commissions for non-bona fide Qualifying Sales. Affiliate represents that it will not directly or indirectly offer any person or entity any financial incentive (including, without limitation, payment of money) for using "Required Urls" on its site to access Company's site or read, intercept, record, redirect, interpret, or fill in the contents of Company's electronic registration form submitted to Company by any person or entity.
    3. Affiliate is responsible for notifying Company of any malfunctioning of the Required URLs or other problems with Affiliate's participation in the Engagement. Company will respond promptly to all concerns upon notification by Affiliate.
  2. Commissions.
    1. For all Qualifying Sales made by each Visitor within sixty (60) days of clicking on Required URL, Company shall pay Affiliate five dollars ($5.00) for the Initial Purchase (defined below) and a 5% share of product revenue generated by additional Qualifying Sales within the same sixty (60) day timeframe. Product revenue means the amounts actually received by Company for print products delivered less shipping and handling costs, amounts collected for sales taxes, gift certificates, charge-backs, coupons and other discounts, rebates or credits.
    2. For purposes of this Agreement, "Initial Purchase" means an end user who (a) Registers as a member on www.company.com through a Qualifying Link (defined below) (b) is not then and has not been a registered member of Company (c) has entered new and unique information in each of the first name, last name, and email address fields on Company's registration form (d) accepts the Company site terms and conditions and (e) places an order for a product of their own making within 60 days of registering at Company. If a print product order is placed through a different Qualifying Link than the registration Qualifying Link then the Affiliate hosting the print product order Qualifying Link is paid.
    3. A "Qualifying Link" is a link from Affiliate's site to www.company.com using one of the Required URLs.
    4. For all Purchases made 60 days prior, Commisions will be paid to Affiliate within forty five (45) days after the end of each calendar month during the term of this Agreement. If the Commission payable to Affiliate for any calendar month is less than twenty-five dollars ($25), Company may hold payment until the total amount due and accruing over subsequent calendar months is at least twenty-five dollars ($25) or (if earlier) until this Agreement or the Engagement is terminated.
    5. Company shall have the sole right and responsibility for processing all registrations of end users. Affiliate acknowledges that all agreements relating to the registration of end users shall be between Company and the end user and that Company has the right to reject any registrations that do not comply with any requirements it may establish.
    6. All determinations of Qualifying Links and Initial Purchases and whether a Commission is payable will be made by Company in good faith and will, absent manifest error, be final and binding on both Company and Affiliate.
    7. Company may apply a debit to Affiliate Account in an amount equal to a Commission previously credited to Your Account in circumstances of : (i) product returns; (ii) duplicate entry or other clear error; (iii) non-bona fide Qualifying Sales; (iv) non-receipt of payment from, or refund of payment to, the Visitor by the Company; or (v) Affiliate fails to comply with Company's Program terms or other agreement with Company ("Charge-back").
