This agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to your participation as a member of the Perfmatters affiliate program.
Enrollment in this program
To begin the enrollment process, you will submit a completed application through our website. Your account will be manually approved as we want to keep the quality high for our plugin. You should receive a response within 24 hours.
We may reject your account if we determine in our sole discretion that your site is unsuitable for the program for any reason, including, but not limited to, if your site incorporates images or content that is unlawful, defamatory, obscene, harassing, or otherwise objectionable, such as sites that facilitate illegal activity or promote violence or promote or assist others in promoting copyright infringement, or if your site is or promotes business opportunity program (collectively, “content restrictions”).
Utilizing links on your site
As an affiliate website of Perfmatters, you may use any form of promotion you choose, consistent with the terms of this agreement. You may use banner advertisements, button links, and text links to our site; however, you cannot spam. Any activity by you or on your behalf that we determine or reasonably suspect to be the result of an unsolicited bulk e-mail program will result in your immediate termination from the program and your forfeiting of monies otherwise due to you hereunder.
Allowable promotional links may contain Perfmatters trade names, service marks, or logos for display on your affiliate site. Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, you are granted a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and download such links and other designated promotional materials for placement on your affiliate site for the sole and exclusive purpose of promoting websites owned, operated, or controlled by Perfmatters. In utilizing the links, you agree that you will cooperate fully with us in order to establish and maintain such links. A link may only be visually modified with our consent.
Pay-per-click (PPC) advertising
As an affiliate, you are allowed to use PPC advertising to promote Perfmatters. However, you cannot place or bid on keywords or phrases containing our brand name (“Perfmatters”). This includes any variations, abbreviations, or misspellings.
We will pay you a commission based on the below structure:
Commission rates: 20% per referral/sale (includes all plans)
Example: If you send us 25 sign-ups for our “unlimited license plan” in any month, you will get $25.00×25 = $625.00
Besides the one-time commission, we also pay 10% recurring commissions for the lifetime of the customer.
The commission rate is subject to change from time to time upon e-mail notice to you and commencing the 30 days following such notice.
Commissions deemed due and owed to you under the program will be paid to you directly by Perfmatters. Payments are sent on the 15th of every month for eligible commissions 30 days after the sale.
For example, if you referred a user on April 14th, you would receive the payment on May 15th. If you referred a user on April 18th, you would receive the payment in the following month, on June 15th.
No commission will be paid for signups by you, your household, or anyone within your organization. Perfmatters reserves the right to only pay for referrals that have paid upon signup.
Sales that are found not to be valid according to our TOS requirements at the time of the additional sale and earnings will be marked as invalid and not payable. This includes if an order was refunded.
Minimum payment threshold
Affiliates must earn a minimum affiliate account balance of $25 or more before their account is eligible for payment. All sales still pending due to the minimum payment threshold must remain active and in good standing according to our TOS requirements in order to be eligible for payment. Sales that are found not to be valid according to our TOS requirements at the time of the additional sale and earnings will be marked as invalid and not payable.
We may modify any of the terms and conditions contained in this agreement at any time and at our sole discretion. Notice of any change by e-mail to your address on our records or the posting on our site of a change notice of a new agreement is considered sufficient notice for notifying you of a modification to the terms and conditions of this agreement.
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.
If any modification is unacceptable to you, your only recourse is to terminate this agreement. Your continued participation in the affiliate program following our posting of a change notice or new agreement on our site will constitute binding acceptance of the change.
Limitation of liability
We will not be liable for indirect, special, or consequential damages or any loss of revenue, profits, or data arising in connection with this agreement or the affiliate program, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Further, our aggregate liability arising with respect to this agreement and the affiliate program will not exceed the total commissions paid or payable to you under this agreement.
