Affiliate Program Terms of Service

Affiliate Program Operating Agreement

Updated: January 2021

This Affiliate Program Operating Agreement (this “Agreement”) contains the terms and conditions that govern your participation in the Affiliate Program (the “Program”). “We,” “us,” or “our” means GoAffPro.com and its Partner Site. A “site” means a website. “Partner Site” means the e-commerce/retail partner using the GoAffPro.com affiliate tracking software. “Your site” means any site(s), any software application(s) and any Mobile Application (as defined hereinafter) that you link to the Partner Site. "Advertising fees" means commissions earned for a successful and verified sale of a Product on the Partner Site by a customer using your referral link. 

Any person or entity that participates or attempts to participate in the Program (such person or entity, “you”, “your” or an “Affiliate”) must accept this Agreement without change. By registering for or using the GoAffPro.com, you agree to this Agreement, including the Program Policies (defined in Section 20), which are incorporated by reference. Please read them carefully.

1. Description of the Program

The purpose of the Program is to permit you to advertise Products on your site and to earn advertising fees or commissions for Qualifying Purchases (defined in Section 6) made by your end users. A “Product” is any item sold on the Partner Site, other than any products that are explicitly defined as excluded products herein (collectively, “Excluded Products”). In order to facilitate your advertisement of a Product, we may make available to you data, images, text, link formats, widgets, links, and other linking tools, and other information in connection with the Program ("Content"). Content specifically excludes any data, images, text, link formats, widgets, links, and other linking tools, and other information or content relating to products offered on any site other than the Partner Site.

2. Enrollment

To begin the enrollment process, you must submit a complete and accurate Program application. You must identify your site in your application. We will evaluate your application and notify you of its acceptance or rejection. We may reject your application in our sole discretion, including if we determine that your site is unsuitable. Unsuitable sites include those that:

(a) promote or contain sexually explicit materials;

(b) promote violence or contain violent materials;

(c) promote or contain libelous or defamatory materials;

(d) promote discrimination, or employ discriminatory practices, based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age;

(e) promote or undertake illegal activities;

(f) include any trademark of GoAffPro, its Partner Sites or its affiliates, or a variant or misspelling of a trademark of GoAffPro, its Partner Sites or its affiliates, in any domain name, subdomain name, or in any username, group name, or other identifier on any social networking site; and

(g) otherwise violate intellectual property rights.

If we reject your application, you may reapply at any time. However, if we accept your application and we later determine that your site is unsuitable, we may terminate this Agreement at any time at our sole discretion.

You will ensure that the information in your Program application and information otherwise associated with your Program account (“Account”), including your email address, contact information and any information related to your site, is at all times complete, accurate, and up-to-date. We may send notifications (if any), approvals (if any), and other communications relating to the Program and this Agreement to the email address then-currently associated with your Account. You will be deemed to have received all notifications, approvals, and other communications sent to such email address.

3. Links on Your Site

After you have been notified that you have been accepted into the Program, you may display Special Links on your site. “Special Links” are links to the Partner Site that (A) you place on your site in accordance with this Agreement, (B) properly utilize the special “tagged” link formats that we provide and (C) comply with any other Program linking requirements. Special Links permit accurate tracking, reporting, and accrual of advertising fees.

You may earn advertising fees only as described in Section 7 and only with respect to activity on the Partner Site occurring directly through Special Links. We will have no obligation to pay you advertising fees if you fail to properly format the links on your site to the Partner Site as Special Links, including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction of advertising fees that would otherwise be paid to you under this Agreement.

If you wish to include Special Links in a software application designed and intended for use on computers, mobile phones, tablets, or other handheld devices (“Mobile Application”), you must include the name of the Mobile Application and the link to your Mobile Application in your Program application. The suitability and other requirements of this Section 3 and the Mobile Application Policy will apply to Mobile Applications. We will evaluate your application and notify you of its acceptance or rejection. A Mobile Application that is accepted will be an "Approved Mobile Application" for the purposes of this Agreement.

Special Links displayed in Approved Mobile Applications may be served by the Affiliate API or Partner API (“Affiliate API”) or the Product Advertising API, including any Special Links displayed within an integrated web browser and must use the Affiliate ID we have assigned to you expressly for your Approved Mobile Applications.

4. Responsibility for Your Site

You will be solely responsible for your site, including its development, operation, and maintenance and all materials that appear on or within it. For example, you will be solely responsible for:

  • the technical operation of your site and all related equipment;
  • displaying Special Links and Content on your site in compliance with this Agreement and the Program Policies and any agreement between you and any other person or entity (including any restrictions or requirements placed on you by any person or entity that hosts your site); 
  • creating and posting, and ensuring the accuracy, completeness, and appropriateness of, materials posted on your site (including all Product descriptions and other Product-related materials and any information you include within or associate with Special Links); 
  • using the Content, your site, and the materials on or within your site in a manner that does not infringe, violate, or misappropriate any of our rights or those of any other person or entity (including copyrights, trademarks, privacy, publicity or other intellectual property or proprietary rights);
  • using the Content, your site, and the materials on or within your site in a manner that is not harmful, disparaging, harassing, blasphemous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, pedophilic, libelous or otherwise in any manner whatsoever;
  • accurately and sufficiently disclosing on your site, either through a privacy policy or otherwise, how you collect, use, store, and disclose data collected from visitors, including, where applicable, that third parties (including us and other advertisers) may serve content and advertisements, collect information directly from visitors, and place or recognize cookies on such visitors’ browsers; and
  • any use of the Content and the GoAffPro Marks permitted by this Agreement.

5. Order Processing

We will process Product orders placed by customers who follow Special Links from your site to the Partner Site. We reserve the right to reject orders that do not comply with any requirements on the Partner Site, as they may be updated from time to time. We will track Qualifying Purchases for reporting and advertising fee accrual purposes and will make available to you reports summarizing those Qualifying Purchases.

6. Advertising Fees

We will pay you advertising fees on Qualifying Purchases in accordance with this Section 6 and Section 7. In the event any excess payment has been made to you for any reason whatsoever, we reserve the right to adjust or offset the same against any subsequent advertising fees payable to you under this Agreement. Subject to the exclusions set forth below, a “Qualifying Purchase” occurs when (a) a customer clicks through a Special Link on your site to the Partner Site; (b) during a single Session, such customer adds a Product to his or her shopping cart and places the order for that Product no later than 24 hours following such customer’s initial click-through; and (c) the Product is shipped to, and paid for by, the customer. 

A “Session” begins when a customer clicks through a Special Link on your site to the Partner Site and ends upon the occurrence of any of the following: (x) 24 hours elapses from such click; (y) such customer places an order for a Product; or (z) the customer follows a Special Link to the Partner Site that is not your Special Link.

Qualifying Purchases exclude, and we will not pay advertising fees on, any of the following:

  • any Product that, after expiration of the applicable Session, is added to such customer’s shopping cart, or is streamed or downloaded by such customer, even if such customer previously followed a Special Link from your site to the Partner Site;

  • any Product purchase that is not correctly tracked or reported because the links from your site to the Partner Site are not properly formatted;

  • any Product purchased through a Special Link by you or on your behalf, including Products you purchase through Special Links for yourself, friends, relatives, or affiliates, including but not limited to, orders for personal use and orders placed by you for or on behalf of any other person or entity;

  • any Product purchased for resale or commercial use of any kind;

  • any Product purchased after termination of this Agreement;

  • any Product purchase where a cancellation, return, or refund has been initiated; and

  • any Product purchased by a customer who is referred to the Partner Site through any of the following:

    • a Prohibited Paid Search Placement;

    • a link to the Partner Site, including a Redirecting Link, that is generated or displayed on a Search Engine in response to a general Internet search query or keyword (i.e., organic and/or unpaid search results), whether those links appear through your submission of data to that site or otherwise;

    • any Product purchased through a Special Link in a Mobile Application that was not an Approved Mobile Application or where the Special Link in an Approved Mobile Application was not served by the AMA API, Product Advertising API or other linking tools that we make available to you;

    • any Qualifying Purchase outside the United States;

    • the mobile application of the Partner Site that is pre-loaded by the original equipment manufacturer ("OEM") on the device or tablet (if any);

    • the mobile application of the Partner Site installed through a maintenance release, firmware update or firmware based notification sent by the OEM or the notification partner; or

    • the mobile application of the Partner Site installed from a source other than Google Play store or iOS App Store.

Prohibited Paid Search Placement” means an advertisement that you purchased through bidding on keywords, search terms, or other identifiers (including Proprietary Terms) or other participation in keyword auctions. “Proprietary Term” means keywords, search terms, or other identifiers that include the word “goaffpro,” Evolve Mala, or any other trademark of GoAffPro, Evolve Mala or their affiliates, or variations or misspellings of any such words. “Redirecting Link” means a link that sends users indirectly to the Partner Site via an intermediate site or webpage and without requiring the user to click on a link or take some other affirmative action on that intermediate site or webpage. “Search Engine” means Google, Yahoo, Bing, or any other search engine, portal, sponsored advertising service, or other search or referral service, or any site that participates in any of their respective networks.

7. Advertising Fee Payment and Taxes

We will pay you advertising fees on a monthly basis for Qualifying Purchases shipped, streamed, or downloaded (as applicable) in a given month, subject to any applicable withholding or deduction described below. We will pay you approximately 60 days following the end of each calendar month, but we may accrue and withhold advertising fees until the total amount due to you is at least $20 USD.

The advertising fee payable to you is inclusive of all taxes including applicable service tax or goods and services tax or any other tax or levy that you may be required to remit in connection with such services under applicable law(s) and regulations. You agree to comply with any applicable tax law(s) or regulations. 

We may deduct or withhold any taxes that we may be legally obligated to deduct or withhold from any amounts payable to you under the Program. From time to time, we may request tax information from you. If we request tax information from you and you do not provide it to us, we reserve the right (in addition to any other rights or remedies available to us) to hold the advertising fee payable to you until you provide such information or otherwise satisfy us that you are not a person from whom we are required to obtain tax information.

8. Evolve Mala Customers

Our customers are not, by virtue of your participation in the Program, your customers. Customers who buy products through this Program are customers of the Partner Site with respect to all activities they undertake in connection with the Partner Site. Accordingly, as between you and us, all pricing, terms of sale, rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service, and product sales set forth on the Partner Site will apply to those customers, and the same may be changed at any time. You will not handle or address any contacts with any of our customers, and, if contacted by any of our customers for a matter relating to interaction with the Partner Site, you will state that those customers must follow contact directions on the Partner Site to address customer service issues.

9. Warranties

You represent, warrant, and covenant that (a) you will participate in the Program and create, maintain, and operate your site in accordance with this Agreement, (b) neither your participation in the Program nor your creation, maintenance, or operation of your site will violate any applicable laws, ordinances, rules, regulations, orders, licenses, permits, guidelines, codes of practice, industry standards, self-regulatory rules, judgments, decisions, or other requirements of any governmental authority that has jurisdiction over you (including all such rules governing communications, data protection, advertising, and marketing), (c) you are lawfully able to enter into contracts (e.g. you are not a minor or otherwise legally prevented from contracting), (d) you have independently evaluated the desirability of participating in the Program and are not relying on any representation, warranty, guarantee, or statement other than as expressly set forth in this Agreement, (e) you will not participate in the Program or use any other Service Offerings if you are the subject of U.S. sanctions or of sanctions consistent with U.S. law imposed by the governments of the country where you are using any Service Offering; (f) you will comply with all U.S. export and re-export restrictions, and applicable non-US export and re-export restrictions consistent with U.S. law, that may apply to goods, software, technology and services, and (g) the information you provide in connection with the Program is accurate and complete at all times.


We do not make any representation, warranty, or covenant regarding the amount of traffic or commission income you can expect at any time in connection with the Program, and we will not be liable for any actions you undertake based on your expectations.

You will not make any statement, whether on your site or otherwise, that contradicts or may contradict anything in this section.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, nothing in this Agreement will, or will be interpreted or construed to, induce or require any party hereto to act in any manner (including taking or failing to take any actions in connection with a transaction) which is inconsistent with or penalized under any U.S. laws, regulations, rules or requirements that apply to any party to this Agreement.

17. Disclaimers

THE PROGRAM, GOAFFPRO.COM, ANY PRODUCTS AND SERVICES OFFERED ON THE PARTNER SITE, ANY SPECIAL LINKS, LINK FORMATS, CONTENT, THE PA API, PRODUCT ADVERTISING CONTENT, OUR AND OUR AFFILIATES’ DOMAIN NAMES, TRADEMARKS AND LOGOS (INCLUDING THE GOAFFPRO MARKS), AND ALL TECHNOLOGY, SOFTWARE, FUNCTIONS, MATERIALS, DATA, IMAGES, TEXT, AND OTHER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS, INFORMATION AND CONTENT PROVIDED OR USED BY OR ON BEHALF OF US OR OUR AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS IN CONNECTION WITH THE PROGRAM (COLLECTIVELY THE “SERVICE OFFERINGS”) ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE”. NEITHER WE NOR ANY OF OUR AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS MAKE ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY, OR OTHERWISE, WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICE OFFERINGS. WE AND OUR AFFILIATES AND LICENSORS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICE OFFERINGS, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF ANY LAW, CUSTOM, COURSE OF DEALING, PERFORMANCE, OR TRADE USAGE. WE MAY DISCONTINUE ANY SERVICE OFFERING, OR MAY CHANGE THE NATURE, FEATURES, FUNCTIONS, SCOPE, OR OPERATION OF ANY SERVICE OFFERING, AT ANY TIME AND FROM TIME TO TIME. NEITHER WE NOR ANY OF OUR AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE OFFERINGS WILL CONTINUE TO BE PROVIDED, WILL FUNCTION AS DESCRIBED, CONSISTENTLY OR IN ANY PARTICULAR MANNER, OR WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, ACCURATE, ERROR FREE, OR FREE OF HARMFUL COMPONENTS. NEITHER WE NOR ANY OF OUR AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR (A) ANY ERRORS, INACCURACIES, VIRUSES, MALICIOUS SOFTWARE, OR SERVICE INTERRUPTIONS, INCLUDING POWER OUTAGES OR SYSTEM FAILURES OR (B) ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR ALTERATION OF, OR DELETION, DESTRUCTION, DAMAGE, OR LOSS OF, YOUR SITE OR ANY DATA, IMAGES, TEXT, OR OTHER INFORMATION OR CONTENT. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION OBTAINED BY YOU FROM US OR FROM ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY OR THROUGH THE SERVICE OFFERINGS WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS AGREEMENT. FURTHER, NEITHER WE NOR ANY OF OUR AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY COMPENSATION, REIMBURSEMENT, OR DAMAGES ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH (X) ANY LOSS OF PROSPECTIVE PROFITS OR REVENUE, ANTICIPATED SALES, GOODWILL, OR OTHER BENEFITS, (Y) ANY INVESTMENTS, EXPENDITURES, OR COMMITMENTS BY YOU IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM, OR (Z) ANY TERMINATION OR SUSPENSION OF YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM. NOTHING IN THIS SECTION 17 WILL OPERATE TO EXCLUDE OR LIMIT WARRANTIES, LIABILITIES, OR REPRESENTATIONS THAT CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.

18. Governing Law and Dispute Provisions

Any dispute relating in any way to the Program or this Agreement will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law and the laws of the state of Washington, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern this Agreement and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and us.

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of this Agreement as a court would.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent, Registered Agents Inc., 5900 Balcones Woods Dr. Suite 100 Austin, TX 78731. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $1,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, we will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.

We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, we may seek injunctive or other relief in any state, federal, or national court of competent jurisdiction for any actual or alleged infringement of our or any other person or entity’s intellectual property or proprietary rights. You further acknowledge and agree that our rights in the Content are of a special, unique, extraordinary character, giving them peculiar value, the loss of which cannot be readily estimated or adequately compensated for in monetary damages.

19. INDEMNIFICATION

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR ANY MATTER DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY RELATING TO THE CREATION, MAINTENANCE, OR OPERATION OF YOUR SITE (INCLUDING YOUR USE OF ANY SERVICE OFFERING) OR YOUR VIOLATION OF THIS AGREEMENT, AND YOU AGREE TO DEFEND, INDEMNIFY, AND HOLD US, OUR AFFILIATES AND LICENSORS, AND OUR AND THEIR RESPECTIVE EMPLOYEES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AND REPRESENTATIVES, HARMLESS FROM AND AGAINST ALL CLAIMS, DAMAGES, LOSSES, LIABILITIES, COSTS, AND EXPENSES (INCLUDING ATTORNEYS’ FEES) RELATING TO (A) YOUR SITE OR ANY MATERIALS THAT APPEAR ON YOUR SITE, INCLUDING THE COMBINATION OF YOUR SITE OR THOSE MATERIALS WITH OTHER APPLICATIONS, CONTENT, OR PROCESSES, (B) THE USE, DEVELOPMENT, DESIGN, MANUFACTURE, PRODUCTION, ADVERTISING, PROMOTION, OR MARKETING OF YOUR SITE OR ANY MATERIALS THAT APPEAR ON OR WITHIN YOUR SITE, (C) YOUR USE OF ANY SERVICE OFFERING, WHETHER OR NOT SUCH USE IS AUTHORIZED BY OR VIOLATES THIS AGREEMENT OR APPLICABLE LAW, (D) YOUR VIOLATION OF ANY TERM OR CONDITION OF THIS AGREEMENT (INCLUDING ANY POLICIES  POLICY), (E) YOUR TAXES AND DUTIES OR THE COLLECTION, PAYMENT, OR FAILURE TO COLLECT OR PAY YOUR TAXES OR DUTIES, OR THE FAILURE TO MEET TAX REGISTRATION OBLIGATIONS OR DUTIES, OR (F) YOUR OR YOUR EMPLOYEES' OR CONTRACTORS’ NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT. WE OR OUR NOMINEE MAY TAKE LEGAL ACTION AND PERFORM ANY PROCEDURAL ACT ON BEHALF OF ANY PARTY, INCLUDING THROUGH SPECIAL MANDATE, TO EXERCISE OR DEFEND A LEGAL CLAIM OR FOR THE PROTECTION OF RIGHTS, INCLUDING FOR THE PURPOSE OF ENFORCING THIS SECTION.

20. Miscellaneous

We may send you emails relating to the Program from time to time. In addition we may (a) monitor, record, use, and disclose information about your Site and users of your Site that we obtain in connection with your display of Special Links and the Content (for example, that a particular customer clicked through a Special Link from your Site before buying a product on the Partner Site),(b) review, monitor, crawl, and otherwise investigate your Site to verify compliance with this Agreement, and (c) use, reproduce, distribute, and display your logo and implementation of the Content displayed on your Site as examples of best practices in our educational materials. For information on how we process personal information, please see the relevant Privacy Notice as set forth on the Partner Site.

You acknowledge and agree that (a) we and our affiliates may at any time (directly or indirectly) solicit traffic on terms that may differ from those contained in this Agreement, (b) we and our affiliates may at any time (directly or indirectly) operate sites or applications that are similar to or compete with your Site, (c) our failure to enforce your strict performance of any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of our right to subsequently enforce such provision or any other provision of this Agreement, and (d) any determinations or updates that may be made by us, any actions that may be taken by us, and any approvals that may be given by us under this Agreement can be made, taken, or given in our sole discretion and are only effective if provided in writing by our authorized representative.

You may not assign this Agreement, by operation of law or otherwise, without our express prior written approval. Subject to that restriction, this Agreement will be binding on, inure to the benefit of, and be enforceable against the parties and their respective successors and assigns.

This Agreement incorporates, and you agree to comply with, the most up-to-date version of all policies, appendices, specifications, guidelines, schedules, and other rules referenced in this Agreement and any other policies that apply to tools, subprograms, and features made available to you under the Associates Program (“Program Policies”), including any updates of the Program Policies from time to time. In the event of any conflict between this Agreement and any Program Policy, this Agreement will control. In the event of a conflict between this Agreement and your agreement with a GoAffPro affiliate under a separate affiliate marketing program that agreement will control with respect to such separate program. This Agreement (including the Program Policies) is the entire agreement between you and us regarding the Program and supersedes all prior agreements and discussions.

Whenever used in this Agreement, the terms “include(s)", “including”, and “for example” are used and intended without limitation.

Any information relating to us or any of our affiliates that we provide or make accessible to you in connection with the Program that is not known to the general public or that reasonably should be considered to be confidential is our “Confidential Information” and will remain our exclusive property. You will use Confidential Information only to the extent reasonably necessary for your performance under this Agreement and ensure that all persons or entities who have access to Confidential Information in connection with your Account will be made aware of and will comply with the obligations in this provision. You will not disclose Confidential Information to any third party (other than your affiliates bound by confidentiality obligations) and you will take all reasonable measures to protect the Confidential Information against any use or disclosure that is not expressly permitted in this Agreement. This restriction will be in addition to the terms of any confidentiality or non-disclosure agreement between the parties and will apply for the term of the Agreement and 5 years after termination.

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 you and us or our respective affiliates. You will have no authority to make or accept any offers or representations on our or our affiliates’ behalf. If you authorize, assist, encourage, or facilitate another person or entity to take any action related to the subject matter of this Agreement, you will be deemed to have taken the action yourself.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, nothing in this Agreement will, or will be interpreted or construed to, induce or require any party hereto to act in any manner (including taking or failing to take any actions in connection with a transaction) which is inconsistent with or penalized under any U.S. laws, regulations, rules or requirements that apply to any party to this Agreement.
