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.
