1. These terms are here to explain the parameters of the Wp Favs affiliate program and the legal terms associated with them.
2. The basic idea is that when you refer a user to Wp Favs and they become a paid member, we will share some of that revenue with you.
3. These affiliate terms are an add-on to the general site terms of service which you have already agreed to if you are in fact using this site.
4. When we say 'you' in these Affiliate Program Terms we are referring to you, the affiliate. All other words defined or explained in the site terms of service have the same meaning here. If there's any inconsistency between what we say in these Affiliate Program terms and what is in the site terms of service, what we say in these Affiliate Program terms prevail.
5. Read on for details about your responsibilities, how it all works and the process of earning referral income with us.
6. All members can act as affiliates by following the steps outlined in these terms. Just remember that if you want to actively participate in the Affiliate Program there are few things you'll need to keep in mind which are explained below.
7. Refer new users to Wp Favs and you'll receive a percentage of their purchases.
8. Referral code: Every member automatically has a referral code which is generated automatically. This referral code is available on the affiliates page.
9. Simply paste a link or image button on your site using that code. If a new user clicks your referrer link and proceeds to sign up an account, that user becomes tagged to you forever. If in the future they purchase a premium account we pay you a referral fee for that purchase.
10. Referral program percentage: We will pay you a percentage detailed here of the earnings generated from the payments from your referred users during the first year of said user's initial registration. So if you refer somebody and they sign up on March 22, 2015. A percentage of all income we receive from that user, up until March 21, 2016 will be shared with you. If the user does buy a subscription within that amount of time, you will not receive any revenue share. If the user purchases 3 months after their initial registration date, you will receive a share of all revenue generated for the next 9 months.
11. More details: Here are a few important points about how it works:
12. We will pay your Affiliate Program earnings from the Affiliate Program in line with the payment rates into your members' statement. In order for us to do this, you authorise us to collect payments for your new user referrals, to credit your members' statement with your earnings, and to distribute your earnings to you.
13. To avoid any confusion, only your earnings from referrals will be payable to you. Any subscription fees you pay yourself as a user are not able to be withdrawn or refunded.
14. Thresholds: We'll make payments of your earnings based on certain minimum threshold amounts. We can change this amount any time.
15. Earnings payment timing and methods:
16. Payment errors: We will continue to hold your earnings if we're not able to pay your earnings to you for whatever reason, including if:
17. Currency conversions: Whenever we make a payment to you as an affiliate, you are responsible for all costs of converting the amount of the payment from Dollars into your preferred currency. Your financial institution does the currency conversion and may charge you additional fees (we don't control either the conversion rates or your financial institution's fees).
18. Refunds and chargebacks: If a transaction by one of your referred users is subject to a refund or chargeback, we can at our discretion, withhold that portion of your Affiliate Program earnings.

If we decide that your participation in the Affiliate Program does not comply, we can based on our reasonable discretion withhold your earnings and may disable your account.
21. We will make the final decision about whether or not your use of the Affiliate Program is in breach of any applicable laws or these Affiliate Program Terms (acting reasonably, of course).
