This agreement will be governed by the
following rules and conditions:
- This agreement will be governed by the
laws of the State of California, within the United States.
- The Classified Club will give you (the
'reseller') a commission (variable rate; currently set at 33%)
on the sale price of all memberships sold through a direct referral
from any banner, icon, or other link displayed or used on the
sponsor's web site or other advertisement.
- This agreement is purely for giving a
commission on sales generated through referrals by the banner
or advertisement from the the sponsor. The term, 'sponsor', does
not imply any formal association with The Classified Club, and
the Partner does not have any right to our products, logos or
- The Partner is not permitted to represent
themselves as a direct employee of the Classified Club. The
Partner may, advertise or write independent product reviews for
any particular product listed in the Club in order to increase
the effectiveness of the banner or other advertisement. Spamming
is strictly prohibited, and may result in your account being
terminated and commissions forfeited.
- Although we fully intend to keep this
rate as it stands, we reserve the right to alter the rate of
commission at any time without notice. Any credit accumulating
after such change will be at the new rate. i.e. the Partner is
not guaranteed to have the same rate as the one started with.
This is not a loophole to defraud you, but a way for us to prepare
for anything unforeseeable. As we see it now, such change should
never be necessary.
- We reserve the right to change the product
prices from time to time which may have an effect on the commissionable
- The commission will be credited only when
the payment for the sale is cleared. If the buyer requests a
refund at a later time, the original commission credited will
be deducted from future commissions.
- This system is dependent on a cookie being
placed in the web surfer's computer, in addition to a cross reference
check of server logs. We will not be responsible for any cookie,
or log failure that may result in the user's clicks going unregistered,
although most of the small errors are corrected by a cross reference
to our log files. Some web-surfers have disabled cookies on their
web browser (a very small percentage). We do try to capture ALL
click throughs by cross referencing all sales with our log files.
Although some " Non Capture" of click throughs is a
very small percentage, there are certain cases like this.
- The commission will be paid monthly when
resellers commission amounts to US$100.00 or more, and such payment
will be through a check written from a US bank account in US
dollars. We will not be responsible for a sponsor's inability
to cash the check or a loss of amount due to exchange rates.
- We will not accept responsibility for
clearing the check at your financial institution.
- A minimum of $100 in commissions is required
before a check will be disbursed. Any commissions which do not
meet the minimum requirement will be rolled over into the following
month until the minimum is achieved.
- Resellers wishing to "cash out"
prior to the minimum will be honored. A $15.00 processing fee
will be deducted from any outstanding commission owed in order
to manually generate a "cash out" check.
- We reserve the right to evaluate your
site and terminate individual agreements after notification through
E-mail. In such situations, our sole responsibility ends at issuing
a check corresponding to the outstanding amount in your credit.
No explanation for the termination will necessarily be given.
- Under this program, you are only entitled
to commissions for memberships sold at The Classified Club.
- We reserve the right to cancel the whole
Partner program without notice. As in the previous case, if it
happens all sponsors will be issued with a check corresponding
to any outstanding amount in their account.
- The Partner is not under any obligation
to keep the banners on their web site. Removal of the banner
may not result in an immediate cessation of credit accumulation.
No correspondence regarding the removal of banner is required
or will necessarily be answered by The Classified Club.
- Any correspondence relating to loss of
the check in mail, or inability to cash the check, must be notified
within a reasonable time to let us decide on alternative payment
- Any tax liability on the amount of commission
received will be the sponsor's responsibility. You are not employed
by us nor are you entitled to any benefits normally found in
an employer/employee relationship. You are required to claim
the commissioned earned from us on your tax return.
- While it is up to the Partner to choose
where the banner or advertisement should appear, it must not
be placed on a page/position that could be defamatory or counter-productive
to the Classified Club. If requested by us such banner links
must be removed.
- It should clearly be understood that a
direct correlation between 'click-throughs' (verifiable through
query form) and sales may not exist. All operations are automatic
(or semi-automatic) and hence no valid sales referred by you
will go unrecorded with the exception of the rare instances listed
- We will periodically send out a newsletter
addressing ideas for increasing sales and other issues.
