THIS IS A LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND WEALTHTENDER. BY SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION TO PARTICIPATE IN THE WEALTHTENDER AFFILIATE PROGRAM, YOU ARE AFFIRMATIVELY STATING THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS AGREEMENT AND UNDERSTAND THE TERMS SET FORTH HEREIN AND ARE AFFIRMATIVELY INDICATING YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT. YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS HEREOF. YOU ARE ALSO AGREEING TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THE AFFILIATE SERVICE AGREEMENT REQUIRED BY ANY OTHER AFFILIATE ADMINISTRATOR UTILIZED BY WEALTHTENDER.
1. Enrollment in the Wealthtender COACH CONNECT Affiliate Program.
To begin the enrollment process, you will submit a completed Affiliate Application by applying to join the Wealthtender Coach Connect Affiliate Program. Once your application has been approved, you will receive your affiliate code and referral links to allow you to start marketing the Wealthtender Coach Connect services. We may reject your application for any reason, or no reason at all, and in our sole discretion.
2. Using Our Links.
“Link” means a hyperlink to the Wealthtender website that is copied and pasted from your individual password-protected Affiliate administration area used for the Wealthtender Coach Connect Affiliate Program. If the link or HTML code you copy from the Affiliate administration area is altered in any way after copying from that web page, we take no responsibility for you receiving credit for any referral to Wealthtender. Any change you make may cause the tracking to no longer function correctly.
We may make available to you banners, button links to our site, and/or text links to our site containing the Wealthtender logo and words identifying Wealthtender. In using the links, you agree that you will take full responsibility in maintaining all such links. All Affiliate Sites (hereinafter defined to include use in connection with your website, social media profile, email address, phone conversation or any other medium you use to promote an Wealthtender service) shall display such banners or links prominently throughout your site as you see fit and with our consent. You shall not alter, modify or expand the banners or links in any way; however, a banner or link may be modified and/or expanded with our written consent. Each banner or link connecting users of your Affiliate Site to our site will in no way alter the look, feel or functionality of our site. We have the right in our sole discretion to monitor your Affiliate Site at any time and from time to time to determine if you are in compliance with the terms of this Agreement.
You are allowed to use the prices of the Wealthtender services on your website but you are responsible for keeping your information on pricing up-to-date as Wealthtender from time to time may post specials, discounts or change product and/or service pricing at our sole discretion.
You are strictly prohibited, absent prior written consent of Wealthtender, from placing links to Wealthtender in third party newsgroups, message boards, IRC postings, unsolicited email and other types of spam, link farms, counters, chatrooms, or other guest books, or forcing clicks.
You acknowledge that you are the owner and operator of your Affiliate Sites and have no ownership interest in Wealthtender or any of its property, intellectual or otherwise. In order to avoid consumer confusion as to source and affiliation, you must include an affiliate disclosure on web pages where you place your Wealthtender affiliate link. Your affiliate disclosure must, at a minimum, include the following:
a. Disclose that links on your site may be affiliate links.
b. Disclose that you earn commissions from links on your site.
3. Order Processing.
We will process orders (generally coaching packages and gift certificates for coaching packages) placed by customers who follow the links you copy from your Affiliate administration area from your Affiliate Site(s) to the Wealthtender site. We reserve the right to reject orders that do not comply with certain requirements that we periodically may establish, and you will not be eligible for commissions on orders we reject. We will be solely responsible for all aspects of order processing and fulfillment, including order entry, payment processing, customer onboarding, cancellations, returns and related customer service. We will track the volume and amount of sales generated by your site and will make unaudited reports available for your review from time to time at our discretion.
Commissions are only available on trackable sales of coaching packages and gift certificates, subject to certain exclusions, according to the commission type, rate and terms described inside your Affiliate administration area.
Wealthtender affiliates earn a commission for all referrals who purchase coaching packages and gift certificates using their link. We reserve the right to reverse commissions due to refunded payments and erroneous subscription crediting.
The Commission Rate is subject to change at any time or from time to time, in our sole and absolute discretion. You will be notified of any change in the Commission Rate by email notice to the email you use on your account in your affiliate area. Commissions will also be reduced for amounts due to credit card fraud, bad debts, cancellations, charge backs and credits for returned goods.
A commission will only be paid if the visitor to our site is tracked by the system from the time of the link to the time of the sale. No commission will be paid if the visitor to our site cannot be tracked by our system, which may include a visitor returning to our site.
Our cookies may expire, so repeat visitors that do not come directly from your site may not count towards your commissions if the cookie has been removed by the user or otherwise. In the event a visitor comes from two different affiliates, the later cookie shall govern for the calculation of commissions.
5. Commission Payment.
Commissions on eligible orders are paid consistently solely with the criteria in the “Commissions” section above. If a commission has been paid for orders that were deemed ineligible, the commission will be deducted from future commissions. The Commission Rate is subject to change at any time or from time to time, in our sole and absolute discretion. All commission payments are made via the options which are made available through the Affiliate administration area.
You agree that you are solely responsible for all tax obligations due to all taxing authorities arising from or in connection with your participation in our Affiliate Program. Wealthtender shall not withhold any taxes of any kind from your commission payments.
Wealthtender shall pay commissions on a monthly basis, within 45 days following the end of each calendar month.
No commission will be paid if you violate the terms of this Agreement or the law.
6. Reports of Sales & Audits.
Using your login to the Affiliate administration area, you will be able to run reports showing the orders you referred to Wealthtender.
You agree that Wealthtender may, at any time, upon giving ten (10) days prior written notice to you, inspect and audit your books and records, including all financial documentation related to sales and requested commissions and all materials, including your Affiliate Site, used in order to generate such sales, to determine whether you have complied with this Agreement.

If you see logos, trademarked items or text content that is not in the materials available to affiliates in the marketing section and you wish to use on your site, you may not use them without prior written permission.

The rights granted to you pursuant to this section shall terminate upon the effective date of the expiration or termination of this Agreement.
Additionally, we reserve the right to secure the highest position in pay-per-click and pay-per-position search engines and advertising sites by submitting a bid for URLs or other search terms considered as trademarks, sales marks, service marks, registered trademarks, or registered URLs (or any variations or abbreviations of same) of Wealthtender.
You explicitly agree not to adopt or use in any manner any trade name, trademarks, service marks, URLs or other intellectual property that is the same or similar to that of Wealthtender, including, without limitation, the Wealthtender logo service marks. At no time shall you advertise on search engines utilizing keywords containing, in whole or in part, the same, or anything confusingly similar to Wealthtender’s marks. If you are found to have placed ads for any of the preceding types of keywords all of your commissions may be voided at the sole discretion of Wealthtender.

Modifications may include, but are not limited to, changes in the scope of available commission fees, commission schedules, payment procedures, and Affiliate Program rules. All such modifications shall take effect 48 hours after we serve notice as provided above, unless we indicate otherwise.
