Participation in the ETI Affiliate Programme
Websites that possess content relative to the use of ETI products will qualify to participate in the ETI Affiliate Programme. However, we reserve the right to reject applications for any reason. We will evaluate your registration form and notify you whether or not your website or blog is accepted for participation in the ETI Affiliate Programme. We may reject your application after initial approval if we determine (at our sole discretion) that your website is unsuitable for the programme. Once your participation is approved you will be given a unique affiliate code to use in your links to ETI products and a log-in and password to enable monitoring of your sales/commissions.
We do not work with sites that:
This Master Agreement ("Agreement") is made between ETI and you ("Affiliate").
Terms and Conditions
The Terms of this Agreement will begin upon our acceptance of the affiliate application and will end when terminated by either parties. Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause, by giving the other party written notice of termination. Upon termination of this Agreement, any and all licenses you have with respect to content will automatically terminate and you will immediately stop using the content and ETI site, all ETI marks, all other content, and any other materials provided or made available by or on behalf of us to you under this Agreement or otherwise in connection with the programme. We may withhold accrued unpaid advertising fees for a reasonable period of time following termination to ensure that the correct amount is paid (e.g. to account for any cancelations or returns). No termination of this Agreement will relieve either party for any liability for any breach of, or liability accruing under, this Agreement prior to termination.
Relationship of Parties
All parties are independent contractors, and nothing in this Agreement or the operational documentation will create a partnership, joint venture, agency franchise, sales representative, or employment relationship between you and us. You will have no authority to make or accept any offers or representations on our behalf. You will not make any statement, whether on your site or otherwise, that contradicts or may contradict anything in this section. If you authorize, assist, encourage, or facilitate another person or entity to take any action related to the subject matter of this Agreement, you will be deemed to have taken the action yourself.
Links to Your Site
After you have signed the Agreement, you may display special links on your site. "Special Links" are links to the ETI site that you place on your site in accordance with this Agreement, that properly utilize the special "tagged" link formats we provide, and that comply with the linking requirements. Special links permit accurate tracking, reporting, and accrual of commission fees. You may earn commission fees only with respect to activity on the ETI site occurring directly through special links. We will have no obligation to pay you commission fees if you fail to properly format the links on your site to the ETI site as special links, including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction of commission amounts that would otherwise be paid to you under this Agreement.
We will pay you commission on qualifying purchases only. Subject to the exclusions set forth below, a "Qualifying Purchase" occurs when (a) a customer clicks through a special link on your site to the ETI site; (b) during a single session that customer adds a product to his or her shopping cart and places the order for that product no later than 30 days following the customer's initial click-through (Products that sit in a customer's cart for longer than 30 days will no longer be considered qualifying purchases.)
A "Session" begins when a customer clicks via a special link on your site to the ETI site and ends upon the first to occur of the following: (1) 24 hours elapses from the customer's initial click-through; (2) the customer places an order for a product. Excluded qualifying purchases wherein commissions will not be paid include, but are not limited to the following:
Commission Payment Schedule
During each calendar month, you may earn commission fees for qualifying purchases. Commission fees are calculated as a percentage of qualifying revenues. "Qualifying Revenues" mean amounts we receive from customers' qualifying purchases, excluding shipping, handling, and gift-wrapping fees, taxes, and service charges, and less any rebates, credit card processing fees, returns, and bad debt. The programmes standard commission fee structure is (10%) for ALL ETI products. ETI reserve the right to vary this rate depending on the number of products that are shipped in a given calendar month that constitute qualifying purchases.
We will pay you commission on a monthly basis for qualifying purchases shipped in a given month, subject to any applicable withholding or deduction described above. We will pay you approximately 30 days following the end of each calendar month using the payment method you choose from the following available options. If you have not selected one of the payment methods below, we will withhold any unpaid accrued commission fees until you have done so.
Payment by direct deposit. If you select payment by direct deposit, we will directly deposit the commission fees you earn into the bank account you designate, but may accrue and withhold commission fees until the total amount due to you is at least £10. If you select this method of payment, you must provide us with the name of your bank, bank account type, IBAN/SWIFT number, account number, and the name of the primary account holder as it appears on the account.
Payment by cheque. If you select payment by cheque, we will send you a cheque in the amount of the commission fees you earn, but we may accrue and withhold commission fees until the total amount due to you is at least £100.
