This CorpNet Partner Program Affiliate Agreement was last updated on October 15, 2020.
This CorpNet Partner Program Affiliate Agreement (the “Agreement”) is made by and between CorpNet, Incorporated, a California, USA corporation (“CorpNet” “we”, “us”, “our”), and you, (“you”, “your”, “Affiliate”) as a participant in the CorpNet Partner Program.
You agree to abide by the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement in order to participate in the CorpNet Partner Program. Please read this Agreement carefully signing. By signing up for the CorpNet Partner Program, you indicate your acceptance of this Agreement and its terms and conditions.
All terms and conditions herein are subject to change. By accepting this Agreement, you also accept any future modifications that CorpNet may make to this Agreement. Any such modifications shall be posted to the website: www.CorpNet.com/Partners/.
Reseller: An eligible and approved individual or business entity who provides services to his/her clients under the reseller’s own name or brand, with the services fulfilled by CorpNet, Incorporated (CorpNet) on a discounted or custom-pricing basis, as approved by CorpNet.
Enterprise Client: An eligible and approved individual or business entity with high volume of business, who provides services to his/her clients under the reseller’s own name or brand, with the services fulfilled by CorpNet on a discounted or custom-pricing basis, as approved by CorpNet.
Referral Partner: Any eligible and approved individual or business entity who refers a customer to CorpNet, through a link on the Referral Partner’s website (a “Link”), with each referral designated either as entitling the Referral Partner to a Commission, or entitling the referred client to a discount on CorpNet’s services and with the client thereafter directly serviced by CorpNet.
CorpNet Partner or Affiliate: An individual or business entity participating in one or more of the Reseller, Enterprise Client, or Referral Partner programs.
Commissions – Referral Partners Only
CorpNet will pay you a commission (the “Commission”) on fees received and retained by CorpNet (“Referral Revenue”) from clients referred by you as a Referral Partner via your website Link, all subject to terms, conditions, and limitations stated herein. The Commission rate will be determined by CorpNet. Commissions also may be paid on telephone orders, where the customer specifically names you as the referral source.
“Referral Revenue” is defined as gross revenue received and retained by CorpNet, less:
- Federal, state, county, city, and governmental fees
- Discounts, coupon codes, returns, chargebacks, and credits
- Fees payable to third parties
- Certain variable operating costs associated with a given order
- Disputed amounts
Commissions are paid on the twentieth (20th) day of each month, when the amount of accrued and unpaid Commissions owed (your “Account”) is $50 or more for the previous transactions. Unpaid amounts credited to your Account do not accrue interest. All payments will be made by QuickBooks BillPay or such other method as CorpNet may designate in its sole discretion, and your participation in the Referral Revenue program is contingent on your agreement to accept payments by that method.
You understand that CorpNet may change the $50 minimum payout amount at any time. You are responsible for determining if the minimum payout amount for a Link you have placed on your site has been changed, altered, or discontinued.
If CorpNet pays a Commission on a transaction for which payment subsequently is reversed for any reason, CorpNet may deduct from your Account the Commission previously credited. If your Account balance is less than the deducted Commission, the amount owed will be deducted from your future Commissions. You will never be asked to send money to CorpNet.
An approved Affiliate must be active and in good standing with CorpNet to be eligible to receive Commissions.
Commissions may be earned only on purchases of our products and services for the full retail price. Where a purchase is made under any discount or savings program, no Commission shall be paid. If a client referred by you chooses to become a CorpNet Partner, no commissions will be paid on purchases by that client after becoming a CorpNet Partner.
Each Affiliate may have multiple sources, web properties, or channels for purposes of marketing CorpNet services, but each Affiliate may have only one Affiliate Account for purposes of calculating and paying Commissions.
Self-referrals for Affiliate accounts are allowed.
All Affiliates must maintain a business address within the United States. Affiliates with foreign business addresses may not participate in the CorpNet Partner Program.
If multiple Affiliates refer or may have referred one particular order, the Commission will be paid based on the referral that is last in time (as determined by the Affiliates’ Links). Commissions are never split between Affiliates.
Referral Revenues and Commissions are calculated by CorpNet, and its decision will be final.
All disputes regarding Commissions must be communicated to us within 60 days from the date of the sale on which you claim a Commission is owed. Disputes must be communicated via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Affiliate Accounts that are left inactive will be removed from our system, if the balance is $50 or less. An Account is considered “Inactive” where no user has logged in to the account for six months AND no transactions have posted to that account for six months.
CorpNet Links and Banners
You may place CorpNet Links and banners anywhere on your website, in your discretion, or within email campaigns where users have opted in to receive email from you.
