Affiliate Agreement

To be an authorized affiliate of MindPerk, you agree to abide by the terms and conditions contained in this agreement.

Please read this agreement carefully before enrolling and using the MindPerk service as an affiliate. As a part of the sign-up process, you will be required to indicate that you have read and that you accept this affiliate agreement, and its terms and conditions.

MindPerk Affiliate Agreement

This agreement describes the entire terms and conditions for participation in the MindPerk Affiliate Program. In this agreement, the term “Affiliate” refers to you (the applicant). Wherever the agreement refers to “you” or “your”, it means “the Affiliate”; “we” or “our” refers to MindPerk, Inc.

Affiliate URL link

Once your account is approved, MindPerk will create a unique URL link for you. This is the URL for your unique Affiliate account. You can also log onto your online interface and generate custom URL links that direct visitors to specific pages within MindPerk.com.

Commissions

You will receive a percentage of the revenue as a commission from qualified orders placed at MindPerk.com by a customer who entered our website by clicking on your Affiliate link on your website. This commission starts at 7% and increases by 1% for each 10 sales you generate up to a maximum total commission of 10%. For a sale to generate a commission to an Affiliate, the customer must enter MindPerk.com from that Affiliate’s website, by clicking on the affiliate’s unique affiliate link, and remit full payment for the service ordered. You will also receive 10% of a sub-Affiliate’s commission from orders placed through the Affiliate sites of those sub-Affiliates that you have sponsored into the MindPerk Affiliate Program. Commissions will only be paid on sales that are made through qualified Affiliate Sites. Sales will be posted to the Affiliate’s online account approximately 4-6 weeks of the actual order placement. This delay insures that all orders posted to the account have been shipped and received by the customer.

Payment

MindPerk will pay the affiliate for commissions within approximately 15 days after the end of each calendar month in which the sale is approved, providing the commissions owed exceed $30. We prefer to send commission payments via PayPal. However, affiliates may choose to have commission checks sent by mail. Amounts less than $30 will be carried forward to future months until the amount owed exceeds $30. If the customer returns any order that generated a commission, or if there are any returned checks or charge backs, the commission amount will be deducted from your next monthly payment. If there is no subsequent payment, you will be invoiced.

Order Fulfillment

MindPerk will be solely responsible for processing every order placed by a customer through an Affiliated Site. MindPerk reserves the right to reject any order that does not comply with our rules, operating procedures and policies.

Customers

Customers who purchase products and services through the Affiliate Program will be deemed to be customers of MindPerk. Accordingly, all MindPerk rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders and service will apply to those customers. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. Prices and availability of our products and services may vary from time to time. MindPerk policies will always determine the price paid by the customer.

Qualification for Commissions

Affiliates must have an active affiliate link from their website to MindPerk.com to qualify for commissions. To verify the validity of your affiliate link, link samples may be sent to contact@mindperk.com, so that they can be verified and the Affiliate’s active status confirmed. Affiliate links may not be used in pay-per-click advertising. When a visitor clicks on one of your affiliate links our system tracks all orders placed by that visitor for up to 50 years. To qualify for commissions, the customer must enter our site through the affiliate’s site using the affiliate link. Or, after clicking on the affiliate’s link, the customer must return by navigating directly to MindPerk.com. Affiliates will not receive credit for customers who click through to our site using another affiliate’s link, pay-per-click advertisements, free search engines, or from any other source not directly attributable to the affiliate, even though the customer may have clicked on the affiliate’s link in the past. If, a visitor enters our site through your affiliate link, then subsequently returns through a different affiliate’s link, the most recent affiliate will receive credit for the sale and future qualifying sales of that customer.

$10 Sign-up Bonus

Sign-up bonuses will be awarded only after the affiliate has reached their first $30 in earned commissions. At this point, they will be paid their earned commissions, plus the sign-up bonus. Affiliates who do not earn $30 in commissions, will not receive a sign-up bonus.

Non-Qualifying Affiliates

MindPerk reserves the right to reject any Affiliate Application based on site content and/or Affiliate location. Existing affiliate accounts that do not qualify (based on the criteria below) may be immediately terminated and any pending commissions will be forfeited. If an otherwise qualifying Affiliate has multiple websites, the Affiliate agrees that the Affiliate will not receive commissions generated from non-qualifying websites. Non-qualifying accounts include those in which the Affiliate or the Affiliate’s website:

promotes or contains nudity, obscenity, sexually explicit or otherwise suggestive materials
promotes consumption of alcoholic beverages, smoking, or use of recreational drugs
promotes violence
promotes discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, or age
promotes illegal activities
violates intellectual property rights
is located in countries from which we do not accept orders
is located in states that consider marketing affiliates as an established physical presence in their state (for the purpose of collecting sales tax)
is under construction or otherwise incomplete.

Unsolicited Commercial Email

MindPerk in no way participates in mass unsolicited emailing (i.e. spamming), and all Affiliates are expected to adhere to this policy as well. Violation of this policy will result in the termination of this contract and immediate dismissal from the MindPerk Affiliate Program, with no refund.

Scumware

Scumware is the use of Pop-up banners that hide banners that are displayed on a site, placement of icons beside keywords found in text that if clicked will take the visitor to an unrelated site, etc. MindPerk as a company promises it will not use such predatory advertising methods. Further, affiliates using such methods will have their account terminated.

Relationship of Parties

You and we are independent contractors, and nothing in this Agreement will create any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative, or employment relationship between the parties. You will have no authority to make or accept any offers or representations on our behalf, nor do you have permission to represent yourself as an authorized representative of MindPerk, Inc. You will not make any statement, whether on your website or otherwise, that reasonably would contradict this statement.

Termination or Suspension

Either party shall have the right to terminate this Affiliate Agreement without cause, at any time, by giving written notice to the other party not less than thirty (30) days prior to the effective date of such termination. If an Affiliate is deemed to be in violation of this agreement, we may, at our option, temporarily suspend the account in order to give the Affiliate time to correct the violation.

If the violation is corrected within the allotted time, the account will be reinstated to active status. If not, it will be terminated.

Accounts may be terminated without notice if they become inactive, which is defined as an account for which we receive no traffic or no sales for a consecutive period of 6 months. We will not be liable to you for any damages or losses of any kind whatsoever, including incidental or consequential damages, whether directly or indirectly sustained or caused by negligence, by reason of any suspension or termination of this agreement and your affiliate account.
