Links/graphics on your site, in your emails, or other communications

Once you have signed up for the Affil­i­ate Pro­gram, you will be assigned a unique Affil­i­ate Code. You are per­mit­ted to place links, ban­ners, or oth­er graph­ics we pro­vide with your Affil­i­ate Code on your site, in your emails, or in oth­er com­mu­ni­ca­tions. We will pro­vide you with guide­lines, link styles, and graph­i­cal art­work to use in link­ing to Augen­medi­z­in­welt. We may change the design of the art­work at any time with­out notice, but we won’t change the dimen­sions of the images with­out prop­er notice.

To per­mit accu­rate track­ing, report­ing, and refer­ral fee accru­al, we will pro­vide you with spe­cial link for­mats to be used in all links between your site and the Augen­medi­z­in­welt. You must ensure that each of the links between your site and the Augen­medi­z­in­welt prop­er­ly uti­lizes such spe­cial link for­mats. Links to the Augen­medi­z­in­welt placed on your site pur­suant to this Agree­ment and which prop­er­ly uti­lize such spe­cial link for­mats are referred to as “Spe­cial Links.” You will earn refer­ral fees only with respect to sales on a Augen­medi­z­in­welt prod­uct occur­ring direct­ly through Spe­cial Links; we will not be liable to you with respect to any fail­ure by you or some­one you refer to use Spe­cial Links or incor­rect­ly type your Affil­i­ate Code, includ­ing to the extent that such fail­ure may result in any reduc­tion of amounts that would oth­er­wise be paid to you pur­suant to this Agreement.

Affil­i­ate links should point to the page of the prod­uct being promoted.

Referral fees/commissions and payment

For a Prod­uct sale to be eli­gi­ble to earn a refer­ral fee, the cus­tomer must click-through a Spe­cial Link from your site, email, or oth­er com­mu­ni­ca­tions to and com­plete an order for a prod­uct dur­ing that session.

We will only pay com­mis­sions on links that are auto­mat­i­cal­ly tracked and report­ed by our sys­tems. We will not pay com­mis­sions if some­one says they pur­chased or some­one says they entered a refer­ral code if it was not tracked by our sys­tem. We can only pay com­mis­sions on busi­ness gen­er­at­ed through prop­er­ly for­mat­ted spe­cial links that were auto­mat­i­cal­ly tracked by our systems.

We reserve the right to dis­qual­i­fy com­mis­sions earned through fraud­u­lent, ille­gal, or over­ly aggres­sive, ques­tion­able sales or mar­ket­ing methods.

Pay­ments only begin once you’ve earned more than $20 in affil­i­ate income. If your affil­i­ate account nev­er cross­es the $20 thresh­old, your com­mis­sions will not be real­ized or paid. We are only respon­si­ble for pay­ing accounts that have crossed the $20 threshold.

Identifying yourself as a Augenmedizinwelt Affiliate

You may not issue any press release with respect to this Agree­ment or your par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Pro­gram; such action may result in your ter­mi­na­tion from the Pro­gram. In addi­tion, you may not in any man­ner mis­rep­re­sent or embell­ish the rela­tion­ship between us and you, say you devel­op our prod­ucts, say you are part of Augen­medi­z­in­welt or express or imply any rela­tion­ship or affil­i­a­tion between us and you or any oth­er per­son or enti­ty except as express­ly per­mit­ted by this Agree­ment (includ­ing by express­ing or imply­ing that we sup­port, spon­sor, endorse, or con­tribute mon­ey to any char­i­ty or oth­er cause).

You may not pur­chase prod­ucts through your affil­i­ate links for your own use. Such pur­chas­es may result (in our sole dis­cre­tion) in the with­hold­ing of refer­ral fees and/or the ter­mi­na­tion of this Agreement.

Payment schedule

As long as your cur­rent affil­i­ate earn­ing are over $20, you’ll be paid each month. If you haven’t earned $20 since your last pay­ment, we’ll pay you the fol­low­ing month after you’ve crossed the threshold.

Customer definition

Cus­tomers who buy prod­ucts through this Pro­gram will be deemed to be our cus­tomers. Accord­ing­ly, all of our rules, poli­cies, and oper­at­ing pro­ce­dures con­cern­ing cus­tomer orders, cus­tomer ser­vice, and prod­uct sales will apply to those cus­tomers. We may change our poli­cies and oper­at­ing pro­ce­dures at any time. For exam­ple, we will deter­mine the prices to be charged for prod­ucts sold under this Pro­gram in accor­dance with our own pric­ing poli­cies. Prod­uct prices and avail­abil­i­ty may vary from time to time. Because price changes may affect Prod­ucts that you have list­ed on your site, you should not dis­play prod­uct prices on your site. We will use com­mer­cial­ly rea­son­able efforts to present accu­rate infor­ma­tion, but we can­not guar­an­tee the avail­abil­i­ty or price of any par­tic­u­lar product.

Such ter­mi­na­tion of the Ser­vice will result in the deac­ti­va­tion or dele­tion of your Account or your access to your Account, and the for­fei­ture and relin­quish­ment of all poten­tial or to-be-paid com­mis­sions in your Account if they were earned through fraud­u­lent, ille­gal, or over­ly aggres­sive, ques­tion­able sales or mar­ket­ing meth­ods.

You will have no author­i­ty to make or accept any offers or rep­re­sen­ta­tions on our behalf. You will not make any state­ment, whether on your site or oth­er­wise, that rea­son­ably would con­tra­dict any­thing in this Section.
