1. Description of the Affiliate program
The Affiliate Program offers individuals and organisations the opportunity to earn income from referrals to our services from your website, social media, or other user-created media. When a person or entity enters our website through your affiliate link and purchases one of our products or services, you will receive a commission payment.
2. Agree to all terms
Any person or entity that joins our Affiliate Program must accept this Agreement without change and in its entirety. By registering for or using the Affiliate Program, you indicate that you agree to and accept this Agreement in full.
3. Defining the parties
My Emissions offers this Affiliate Program to persons and entities, giving them the opportunity to earn income through successful referrals of our services. Any reference to “we”, “us”, or “our” refers to My Emissions.
The “Affiliate” refers to the person advertising products and services on behalf of My Emissions, and who will receive commission payments for successful referrals through their affiliate link. In this Agreement, any reference to “you” or “your” refers to the Affiliate.
A ‘referred customer’ is any person or entity that is referred to My Emissions by the Affiliate, and who becomes a paying customer of My Emissions. The Affiliate is not a party to the agreement between My Emissions and the referred customer, which is a matter exclusively to those parties; the affiliate must not purport to act on behalf of My Emissions and must pass any questions or requests about our product and services by the referred customer to us.
4. Full compliance required
You must comply with this Agreement to participate in the Program and receive commission payments. You must promptly provide us with any information that we request to verify your compliance with this Agreement.
If you violate this Agreement, we reserve the right to permanently withhold and cease payment of any and all commission income otherwise due, whether directly or not directly related to the violation, and to remove you from the program. This is in addition to any rights or remedies available to us in response to the breach.
5. Affiliate link and cookies
My Emissions will provide you with a personalised affiliate link for use on your website, social media, and other user-generated content. This will place a cookie on the user’s site (see below), which will indicate when a user has been referred to us by an Affiliate.
You may not indirectly send users to our site through your affiliate link, for example through a redirection.
When a user enters our site using an affiliate link, a cookie is placed on their browser, which will last for 7 days. When a user contacts us through our inquiry form, if there is a valid and un-expired cookie from an Affiliate the Affiliate will be indicated in their form submission, informing us about the referral.
The Program uses first-click attribution, meaning a cookie is not placed on a person’s computer if there is already a valid and active cookie on that person’s device. In those circumstances, the inquiry is attributed to the first Affiliate.
7. Other referrals
A person or entity may otherwise inform us that they were referred to us by an Affiliate, for example when filling out our inquiry form or during on-boarding. In those circumstances, although we have no obligation we may nevertheless decide to award you a commission payment.
8. Commission payments
Where a person or entity (the ‘referred customer’) is referred to My Emissions by an Affiliate, the Affiliate is entitled to a commission payment totaling 5% of any amount paid by the referred customer in the first year of their subscription with us. This time starts from the moment the customer first contacts us directly, for example when submitting an inquiry form through our website.
A commission payment will be awarded even where a customer starts on a free package but, within a year, upgrades to a paid subscription.
Commission will not be awarded for any amounts that are returned to the referred customer through a refund or otherwise.
You are not entitled to any commission for any payments made by a referred customer after the termination of this Agreement.
Payments of the commission will be made within 90 days of us receiving payment from a referred customer.
There are no limits to how many persons or entities you can refer to us, or the income you can receive from each referral.
9. No warranty as to income
We do not warrant to you the amount of income you can expect from commission payments and through participation in the program. We will not be liable for any actions or expenses incurred based on your hopes or expectations from the program.
At any time, both parties may terminate this Agreement, with or without cause, through written notification. This includes if we decide to end the entire Affiliate Program.
Amongst other things, we may terminate this Agreement if you are in material breach with this agreement, fail to cure a breach to this Agreement in a timely manner, or we conclude that your continued participation in the Program would harm My Emissions’ brand and goals.
11. Changes to Terms
We reserve the right to change or modify the Affiliate Terms at any time and without prior notice or consent. You will be notified of any change by email, and your continued participation in the Program indicates your acceptance of the new Terms.
If you do not accept the modifications to these Terms, you must then cease participating in the Program.
12. Governing law
This agreement shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the law in England and Wales. Both parties agree that any dispute shall only be settled in the courts of England and Wales.
