1. Partnerwerks Referral Partner Agreement
This agreement describes the terms and conditions for participation in Partnerwerks, Inc. Referral Partner Program for The Leadership Gift Program.
Partnerwerks will work in a collaborative and mutually supportive manner. We expect you to also. We’re serious about this Win/Win/Win/Win (Us/You/Prospects/Customers) spirit.
We take a positive, permission-oriented, value-based approach to marketing and sales. We expect you to do the same. Exploring boundaries and experimenting are fine, however shady or “spammy” practices and win/lose exploitation of each other, the prospect, or the customer are not fine.
We do our best in this agreement to describe the essence of our expectations for each party. We won’t spell out every possible detail and boundary. In the event of violations or conflicts, Partnerwerks is the sole arbiter of who will be approved or terminated as a Referral Partner.
We may change any of these terms and conditions as we see the need. We will let you know if and when we do. Your continued participation in the program demonstrates your acceptance of the change.
To enroll in the Referral Partner Program, you must submit a Referral Partner application and be approved.
5. Referral Partner URL
We will create a Referral Partner account for you in our secure online portal. You will be issued a custom URL unique to you. You use your custom URL to promote The Leadership Gift Program to your prospects.
When your prospects click your URL, their browser will be directed to our sales page. Their browser is cookied and their Internet Protocol (IP) address is recorded in our system. This is for tracking so that when they complete and submit a web-form on that page—either immediately or up to a year later—our system creates a customer account for them and assigns you as their referral partner to whom we owe commission.
You will receive 30% of revenue from orders placed through your properly coded custom URL. Word of mouth referrals will not generate a commission. It is your responsibility to supply your prospects with your properly coded custom URL so they can be tracked in our system.
Partnerwerks pays referral partners quarterly by check, PayPal, or wire transfer (for international only). Partnerwerks will coordinate the payment method with each referral partner.
Customers who purchase products and services through the Partnerwerks Referral Partner Program will be deemed to be customers of Partnerwerks. If they were pre-existing customers of yours, they will still be your customers for your products or services. However, Partnerwerks will be solely responsible for processing and servicing every order placed by a customer via referral partner URLs.
9. Qualifying Entities
Qualifying referral partners operate in the positive spirit noted in paragraph two:
- Do not promote sexually explicit materials, violence, foul or abusive language, discrimination, or illegal activities.
- Do not list promo codes or discounts that were not officially provided directly to you as a referral partner by Partnerwerks. (Want to promote a promo code? Contact us and we can work with you.)
- Do not infringe or otherwise violate any copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property rights of Partnerwerks or any other entity.
- Do not use the terms “Partnerwerks”, “Christopher Avery”, or “Leadership Gift” or “Responsibility Process” in any variation in their site URLs (for example, partnerwerks.net, leadershipgift.net, christopheravery.brand, partnerwerkscouponcodes.com, leadership-gift.com, “responsibility-process.org”, etc.). We will not use your names or marks in any variation in our site URLs.
Referral partners may not use their referral partner URL for, or earn commission on, their own membership in The Leadership Gift Program. We encourage you to use The Leadership Gift Program spouse and family discount for families. For corporations, contact us about our corporate program.
11. Anti-Spam Policy
Let’s stay permission-oriented and value-based. Don’t use spam e-mail and other forms of abusive marketing.
Report violations to Partnerwerks. We will be the sole arbiters of what is spam and reserve the right to terminate Referral Partners.
12. Relationship of Parties
Referral partners are independent contractors and nothing in this Agreement will create any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative, or employment relationship between the parties. Neither party has the authority to make or accept offers on behalf of the other (although kind words, promotion, references, endorsements, and praise are always welcomed).
13. Term and Termination
The term of this Agreement will begin when you and we each accept, and will end when terminated by either party. Either Partnerwerks or you may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause.
14. Limitation of Liability
Partnerwerks will not be liable for indirect, special, or consequential damages (or any loss of revenue, profits, expenditures or data) arising in connection with this Agreement or the Program. Further, our aggregate liability arising with respect to this Agreement and the Program will not exceed the total commissions paid or payable to the referral partner under to this Agreement.
We make no express or implied warranties or representations with respect to the Referral Partner Program or a referral partner’s potential to earn income from the Referral Partner Program. In addition, we make no representation that the operation of the websites or the Referral partner links will be uninterrupted or error-free, and Partnerwerks will not be liable for the consequences of any interruptions or errors.
If any of the provisions of this Agreement are determined by a court to be unenforceable, they shall be severed from this Agreement and the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect.
By signing up with the Partnerwerks Referral Partner Program, you acknowledge that you have read this agreement and agree to all its terms and conditions. You have independently evaluated this program and are not relying on any representation, guarantee, or statement other than as set forth in this agreement.
