The Stealth Code Ltd. (“Stealth Code” or “Company” or “we”) affiliate program (the “Affiliate Program”) is designed to help you generate income in exchange for referring new clients to SEO Autopilot Software. These Affiliate Program Terms (the “Affiliate Agreement”) are a contract between Stealth Code Ltd. and you (the “Affiliate” or “you”), and it governs the terms and conditions of your participation in the Affiliate Program.
BY REGISTERING AS AN AFFILIATE YOU ARE AGREEING TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE AFFILIATE PROGRAM.
1. Payment Requirements:
a. As a Stealth Code Ltd. affiliate, you may accrue up to 30% referral commission for each license purchase of a SEO Autopilot Software Plan that you refer to Stealth Code Ltd. (See “Commission Rules below) that meets the definition of a “Qualified Purchase”. A “Qualified Purchase” is the purchase of a SEO Autopilot Software Plan by a new and unique customer who: (i) clicks on an affiliate tracking link, (ii) completes the subscription purchase process within one hundred eighty (180) days of clicking on the affiliate tracking link, (iii) maintains an active account with Stealth Code Ltd. for a minimum of thirty (30) days.
b. Affiliate accounts must be active at the time of the referral. No referral fee will accrue for sales that occurred before your participation in the Affiliate Program.
c. You are solely responsible for keeping all information up to date including postal and email addresses, name, payment information, tax information and any other personal information that will impact the ability to issue a valid payment.
d. Affiliates are solely responsible for ensuring that all payee information is accurate and up to date in the affiliate system. Stealth Code Ltd. is not responsible for any lost or stolen payments.
e. Missing or untracked affiliate referrals must be reported during the current referral period (either between the 1st and the 15th of the month or between the 16th and the end of the month) and will be credited to your account at our sole discretion, provided that such credit has accrued pursuant to the terms contained herein. Referrals that are not reported during the current referral period will not be credited to your account.
f. The affiliate referral fees are determined 30 days after the Qualified Purchase is recorded. Minimal commission amount earned by affiliate to include it to payout report is $100. Payments are then processed and sent to Affiliates the 15th of the month. EXAMPLE: A Qualified Purchase recorded in June 20th will be sent to the Affiliate commission on August 15th.
g. Payments are sent using the Paypal mass payment system. Stealth Code Ltd. pays for the transaction fee associated with the mass payment system. You are required to supply a Paypal address to receive payments. For Super affiliates with balances of over USD$10,000 per month, Stealth Code Ltd. offers a wire transfer option. To update your payment information, please contact the affiliate department.
h. In the event that Stealth Code Ltd. re-issues any payment, a USD$35 charge will apply and be deducted from the Affiliate’s earnings.
i. Affiliates are responsible for making sure they are able to accept payments. Please ensure that your bank or Paypal account can accept payments.
j. Affiliates are responsible for any and all fees, taxes, exchange rates, surcharges and other expenses incurred in order to receive their referral fees. Please check with your local banking institution or Paypal to find out if any of these apply for your account.
k. Because of the high frequency of credit card fraud and cancellation rates, Stealth Code Ltd. reserves the right to hold referral fees for up to two (2) additional months for verification. At Stealth Code Ltd. sole discretion, we reserve the right to cancel referral fees in the event that we are unable to collect funds, the order is fraudulent, the customer cancels within the first thirty (30) days, or if we learn that the referral fee was earned improperly for any other reason.
