By signing up to be an affiliate in the AuthorityLabs Affiliate Program (the “program”, “Affiliate Program”) you are agreeing to be bound by the following terms and conditions (“Terms of Service”). Please ensure that you read them carefully before signing up. These Terms are a legal agreement between AuthorityLabs, LLC (“AuthorityLabs”, “we”, “us”) and You (the “affiliate”, “you”).
AuthorityLabs reserves the right to update and change the Terms of Service from time to time without notice. Any amendments, modifications, enhancements or changes to the program, including the release of new tools and resources, shall be subject to the Terms of Service. Continued use of the program after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes. You can review the most current version of the Terms of Service at any time at http://authoritylabs.com/affiliates/terms/.
Any violation of these terms may result in, among other things, termination or suspension of your rights to be an affiliate and forfeiture of any outstanding affiliate referral fee payments earned during the violation. You agree to use the Affiliate Program at your own risk.
Joining the Program
By filling out the signup form, applying to be an affiliate, and upon acceptance, you will become an affiliate and are bound by the terms of this agreement. Your participation in the program is solely for the purpose of legally advertising our website to receive a commission on services purchased by your referred individuals.
You must be a human. Accounts registered by “bots” or other automated methods are not permitted.
You must provide your legal full name, a valid email address, and any other information requested in order to complete the signup process.
You are responsible for all content posted and activity that occurs under your account.
You may not use the Affiliate Program for any illegal or unauthorized purpose. You must not, in the use of the service, violate any laws in your jurisdiction.
Affiliates may not use the Affiliate Program to earn money from their own AuthorityLabs accounts or accounts of companies employing the affiliate (self referral).
You will be solely responsible for the development, operation, and maintenance of your site and for all materials that appear on your site. For example, you will be solely responsible for:
- The technical operation of your site and all related equipment
- Ensuring the display of special links on your site does not violate any agreement between you and any third party (including without limitation any restrictions or requirements placed on you by a third party that hosts your site)
- The accuracy, truth, and appropriateness of materials posted on your site
- Ensuring that materials posted on your site do not violate or infringe upon the rights of any third party (including, for example, copyrights, trademarks, privacy, or other personal or proprietary rights)
- Ensuring that materials posted on your site are not libelous or otherwise illegal
Every customer who buys a service through this program is deemed to be a customer of AuthorityLabs. Accordingly, all of our rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning pricing, customer orders, customer service, and product sales will apply to those customers. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. AuthorityLabs is not responsible for any representations made by the affiliate that contradict our rules, policies or operating procedures.
Pricing & Availability
We will determine the prices to be charged for services sold under this program in accordance with our own pricing policies. Services prices and availability may vary from time to time. Because price changes may affect services that you have listed on your site, you should not display service prices on your site. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to present accurate information, but we cannot guarantee the availability or price of any particular service.
Identifying yourself as an AuthorityLabs Affiliate
You may not issue any press release with respect to this agreement or your participation in the program; such action may result in your termination from the program. In addition, you may not in any manner misrepresent or embellish the relationship between us and you, say you develop our products, say you are part of AuthorityLabs, LLC, or express or imply any relationship or affiliation between us and you or any other person or entity except as expressly permitted by this agreement.
You may not purchase products through your affiliate links for your own use. Such purchases may result in the withholding of referral fees and/or the termination of this agreement.
Recurring Commissions and Cookie Duration
The commission is a percentage of the fee(s) that the customer pays to AuthorityLabs. Commissions are only earned on paid accounts. If a customer cancels or does not pay for an account within the trial period, no commissions will accrue.
For a signup to be eligible to earn a commission fee, the customer must sign up for AuthorityLabs within 30 days of coming to a page on AuthorityLabs through an affiliate link from your site, email, or other communications.
Affiliates who refer customers and are eligible for commission will be entitled to a commission percentage for all fees that AuthorityLabs collects from that customer for the life of the customer’s account. If at any time the customer account is cancelled or suspended, the referring affiliate will become ineligible to receive commission on any future fees collected from the customer.
Commissions will become void for customers who ask for refunds or credits during the month the refund or credit are issued. We reserve the right to disqualify commissions and terminate affiliate accounts for affiliates that repeatedly refer customers that ask for refunds or credits.
Commission structure is subject to change at our discretion. We will notify all Affiliates 30 days prior to a commission structure change. Commissions earned under the previous structure will be paid under the previous structure. Commissions under the new structure will be paid under the new structure.
We reserve the right to disqualify commissions earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods.
All accrued affiliate commissions will be paid via PayPal upon request on or before the 15th of the month they are requested unless after the 15th of the month, in which case they will be paid the following month.
Trademark and Search Engine Marketing
Affiliates are prohibited from bidding on trademarked/branded terms, as well as misspellings/variations thereof, including, but not limited to: AuthorityLabs, authoritylabs.com, www.authoritylabs.com, and Authority Labs. Use of trademarked/branded terms in longtail keywords is also restricted, but may be allowed with permission. For inquiries or to request permission, please contact us at email@example.com.
Affiliates may not use authoritylabs.com or www.authoritylabs.com as the display URL in any search ad. The use of AuthorityLabs.com or any variation is allowed in the display URL in search ads ONLY after the root URL (Example:www.affiliatesite.com/authoritylabs).
Affiliates must not use any illegal, deceptive or misleading claims in ad copy. Affiliates are also prohibited from including the phrase “Official Site”, official language, or trademark symbols in ad copy. Affiliates may not include AuthorityLabs or any misspelling or variation in ad copy.
Website Content and Domain Names
Affiliates may not register or purchase domain names including the term AuthorityLabs or any misspellings or variations. Affiliates promoting AuthorityLabs in this manner will immediately be removed from the AuthorityLabs Affiliate Program and all associated transactions will be reversed. AuthorityLabs may not be used as a subdomain (Example: authoritylabs.example.com), however, it may be used as a directory of your domain (Example: www.example.com/authoritylabs).
Affiliates may not promote AuthorityLabs on websites that contain any form of misleading, defamatory, obscene, adult, bigoted, illegal, software, spiderweb marketing or any other content deemed offensive by AuthorityLabs. AuthorityLabs will also not accept applications that include non-working websites, blogs without content, or parked domains.
Use of Software
AuthorityLabs defines software as downloadable, opt-in software monetised through affiliate links such as, but not limited to: toolbars, applications, browser plug-ins and extensions, adware, spyware, loyaltyware and widgets.
AuthorityLabs prohibits the use of any downloadable software for the promotion of AuthorityLabs services. Use of such software by Affiliates shall result in the termination of Affiliate’s account and all associated commissions will be reversed.
As a condition to your participation in the affiliate program, you agree that while you are a program participant you will comply with all laws, ordinances, rules, regulations, orders, licenses, permits, judgments, decisions or other requirements of any governmental authority that has jurisdiction over you, whether those laws, etc. are now in effect or later come into effect during the time you are a program participant. Without limiting the foregoing obligation, you agree that as a condition of your participation in the program you will comply with all applicable laws (federal, state or otherwise) that govern marketing email, including without limitation, the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 and all other anti-spam laws.
Term of the Agreement
These terms will begin upon your signup with the affiliate program and will end when your affiliate account is terminated. The terms of this agreement may be modified by AuthorityLabs at any time. If any modification to the terms is unacceptable to you, your only choice is to terminate your affiliate account. Your continuing participation in the program will constitute your acceptance of any change.
Upon the termination of this agreement for any reason, you will immediately cease use of, and remove from your site, all links to any product site, and all of our trademarks, trade dress, and logos, and all other materials provided by or on behalf of us to you pursuant hereto or in connection with the program. AuthorityLabs reserves the right to end the program at any time. Upon program termination, AuthorityLabs will pay any outstanding earnings.
AuthorityLabs, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the program, or any other AuthorityLabs service, for any reason at any time. Such termination of the service will result in the deactivation or deletion of your account or your access to your account, and the forfeiture and relinquishment of all potential or to-be-paid commissions in your account if they were earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods. AuthorityLabs reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.
