Affiliate Agreement

This agree­ment (“Agree­ment”) describes the terms and con­di­tions for par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Tell­Grade Affil­i­ate Pro­gram. The terms “Affil­i­ate,” “you,” and “your” are refer­ring to you, the per­son who is apply­ing to par­tic­i­pate in our affil­i­ate pro­gram. “We” and “our” refer to Tell­Grade Affil­i­ate Pro­gram.

You and we are inde­pen­dent par­ties and you agree that this Agree­ment shall not cre­ate any form of part­ner­ship or employ­er-employ­ee rela­tion­ship between us. If you are accept­ing this Agree­ment on behalf of anoth­er per­son or a com­pa­ny, you agree that you have author­i­ty to bind them.


To be eli­gi­ble to par­tic­i­pate as an affil­i­ate, you must be at least eigh­teen (18) years old, and have a valid tax ID or social secu­ri­ty num­ber. If you are in the Unit­ed States you must com­plete a W9 form or its equiv­a­lent in your coun­try. Dur­ing the reg­is­tra­tion process you may be asked to pro­vide cer­tain infor­ma­tion. In pro­vid­ing this infor­ma­tion you rep­re­sent and agree that all infor­ma­tion is, and will remain, truth­ful and cur­rent.

We reserve the right to deter­mine whether you are eli­gi­ble or ter­mi­nate your par­tic­i­pa­tion with us at any time, with­out notice. We reserve the right to ter­mi­nate your account at any time with­out notice or rea­son, but specif­i­cal­ly we may do so if you or your site vio­lates any term of this Agree­ment or any applic­a­ble law. Ter­mi­na­tion of your account for breach or vio­la­tion of law may include for­fei­ture of any com­pen­sa­tion owed and dis­gorge­ment of any already paid.


This Agree­ment will begin upon our accep­tance of your affil­i­ate appli­ca­tion and will end when ter­mi­nat­ed by either par­ty, but we may ter­mi­nate this agree­ment at any time, with­out notice, for your breach or vio­la­tion of law.

Ter­mi­na­tion may occur at any time, with or with­out cause, by giv­ing the oth­er par­ty writ­ten notice of the ter­mi­na­tion in accor­dance with this Agreement.Once the Agree­ment is ter­mi­nat­ed, you will imme­di­ate­ly cease your par­tic­i­pa­tion with the site, remove any offers, con­tent, links or cre­ative that has been pro­vid­ed to you by us or our adver­tis­ers. Once ter­mi­nat­ed you will for­feit any rights to any com­pen­sa­tion from the date of ter­mi­na­tion.

We may also reject any appli­ca­tion if you are from a state that cur­rent­ly impos­es a tax on the sale of goods or ser­vices by affil­i­ates (i.e. nexus tax) and the adver­tis­er does not wish to pro­mote its prod­ucts in that state through you.


We may mod­i­fy any of the terms and con­di­tions with­in this Agree­ment at any time and at our sole dis­cre­tion, regard­less of the dis­sim­i­lar­i­ty that may occur between the amend­ed ver­sion of the Agree­ment and the orig­i­nal ver­sion. These mod­i­fi­ca­tions may include, but are not lim­it­ed to, changes in the scope of avail­able refer­ral fees, fee sched­ules, pay­ment pro­ce­dures and rules relat­ing to our affil­i­ate pro­gram. If any of the mod­i­fi­ca­tions are unac­cept­able to you, you must imme­di­ate­ly ter­mi­nate this Agree­ment and noti­fy us of such noti­fi­ca­tion; you must not con­tin­ue par­tic­i­pat­ing in the affil­i­ate pro­gram. By con­tin­u­ing to par­tic­i­pate in the pro­gram fol­low­ing the post­ing of a Change Notice or amend­ments to this Agree­ment, you are indi­cat­ing that you accept the mod­i­fi­ca­tions and agree to com­ply with them.


The sched­ule for you to receive com­pen­sa­tion is based on the occur­rence of a valid event, which is gov­erned by the terms of the offer and its require­ments. We reserve the right, in our sole dis­cre­tion, to deter­mine the valid­i­ty of any event that would lead to com­pen­sa­tion to you. Fur­ther­more, we will have no oblig­a­tion to pay for invalid actions or if the advertiser(s) fails to remit pay­ment.

Depend­ing on the par­tic­u­lar offer, your com­pen­sa­tion may be based on upto 25% of the gross rev­enue or $5 per sale as a com­mis­sion from the par­tic­u­lar valid action that would trig­ger com­pen­sa­tion to you (i.e. orders placed through your Affil­i­ate Site). You will only be paid for legit­i­mate com­pen­sa­tion that was earned, which is deter­mined by us in our sole dis­cre­tion. Pay­ment will be made by an approved method that will be post­ed on the site, and in U.S. Dol­lars unless oth­er­wise agreed to by both par­ties in writ­ing. You will be paid only once you have reached a pay­ment thresh­old of at least $50.00USD (or anoth­er num­ber agreed in writ­ing by both par­ties) and paid on terms of a sched­ule of 15 days after the last day of the cal­en­dar month or anoth­er time frame which has been agreed upon in writ­ing by both par­ties.

(Word This Para­graph to Your Par­tic­u­lar Affil­i­ate Pro­gram)

For a sale to gen­er­ate a com­mis­sion to an Affil­i­ate, the cus­tomer must com­plete the order form, remit full pay­ment for the ser­vice ordered, and have their instal­la­tion com­plet­ed. You will receive upto 25% (depend­ing on prod­uct) for orders placed through the Affil­i­ate Sites of those sub-Affil­i­ates which you have spon­sored into the Tell­Grade Affil­i­ate Pro­gram. Affil­i­ate com­mis­sions will only be paid on sales which are made through qual­i­fied Affil­i­ates.

Com­pen­sa­tion can only be earned between the accep­tance of the Affil­i­ate appli­ca­tion and notice of ter­mi­na­tion. Fees will be paid on the first day of each month by Tell­Grade Affil­i­ate Pro­gram. Any returned checks, charge­backs, or fees from a returned order will be adjust­ed in the fol­low­ing fee pay­ment. If no fee pay­ment is due, a billing invoice for the amount will be issued.

Affil­i­ates must have an active link on their web­site. In order to qual­i­fy for com­mis­sions on sub-affil­i­ate sales in any giv­en month, an affil­i­ate must per­son­al­ly sell at least one order dur­ing that month. Affil­i­ate will also be respon­si­ble for all tax­es and fees that they may incur.


Tell­Grade Affil­i­ate Pro­gram will be sole­ly respon­si­ble for pro­cess­ing every order placed by a cus­tomer on the Affil­i­ate and sub-affil­i­ate sites. Cus­tomers who pur­chase prod­ucts and ser­vices through the Tell­Grade Affil­i­ate Pro­gram will be deemed to be cus­tomers of Tell­Grade Affil­i­ate Pro­gram. Prices and avail­abil­i­ty of our prod­ucts and ser­vices may vary from time to time. Tell­Grade Affil­i­ate Pro­gram poli­cies will always deter­mine the price paid by the cus­tomer. We reserve the right to reject any order that does not com­ply with our rules, oper­at­ing pro­ce­dures and poli­cies.


As stat­ed above, your eli­gi­bil­i­ty to par­tic­i­pate depends on sev­er­al things includ­ing how you pro­mote the prod­ucts or ser­vices. Tell­Grade Affil­i­ate Pro­gram reserves the right, in its sole dis­cre­tion and with­out expla­na­tion to you, to reject your par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Tell­Grade Affil­i­ate Pro­gram based on site con­tent.
