Affiliate Program Terms and Conditions
In exchange for promoting Barn2 Media’s products and services, Barn2 Media will pay the Affiliate a percentage Commission of the price (excluding tax) of any WordPress plugins sold to a third party who accesses barn2.co.uk through a referral link on the Affiliate’s website. The current percentage Commission is 30% and is subject to change by Barn2 Media at any time. Barn2 Media will notify the Affiliate via email or any change to the Commission percentage.
Commission will be paid for the initial 1-year payment to purchase a license for one of Barn2 Media’s plugins. It does not apply to future renewals of the license.
No commission will be paid for transactions that are later subject to refunds or chargebacks. If Barn2 Media has already paid Commission for a transaction which is later refunded or charged back then the Commission already paid will be deducted from a future payment.
No commission will be paid for purchases made by the affiliate – for example, if they buy the plugin for their own use.
Barn2 Media will keep accurate and up-to-date records of the data used to calculate the Commission owed to the Affiliate. The relevant totals will be made available to the Affiliate via the Affiliate Area of barn2.co.uk.
Barn2 Media will pay any Commissions for January in the first week of March; February during the first week of April; and so on throughout the year. Payment will be made to the PayPal account associated with the payment email address which the Affiliate provided during registration (which can be updated via the Affiliate Area).
Barn2 Media is not responsible for any taxes that the Affiliate owes as a result of their relationship with Barn2 Media. The Affiliate is responsible for their own tax affairs.
The cookies used to track usage of the referral links are stored for 365 days. If a customer purchases a plugin after the cookie has expired then no commission will be paid.
License & intellectual property
Barn2 Media agrees for the Affiliate to use the referral links and banners provided via the Affiliate Area to promote Barn2 Media’s products and services.
Barn2 Media retains all rights, ownership, and interest in these materials, and in any copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property. Nothing in these Terms grant the Affiliate any rights, ownership or interest in these materials, or in the underlying intellectual property, other than the rights to use them as granted under these Terms.
Relationship of Parties
Registering as an Affiliate does not create any employment relationship, agency relationship or partnership between Barn2 Media and the Affiliate. The Affiliate will promote Barn2 Media’s products as an independent party. The Affiliate will have no authority to bind Barn2 Media into any agreement, nor will the Affiliate be considered to be an agent of Barn2 Media in any respect.
Affiliate’s representations and warranties
The Affiliate represents and warrants that:
- They have the legal authority to enter into an agreement under these Terms.
- They will not distribute any unsolicited bulk emails or spam in relation to their promotion of Barn2 Media’s products or services.
- They will not use Barn2 Media’s name or any of its products or services for any misleading purpose. This includes implying that Barn2 Media’s products or services are the Affiliate’s own; and using a domain name or other branding that is confusing similar to Barn2 Media’s name or its plugins.
- Their website does not contain any materials that are sexually explicit, obscene or pornographic; offensive, hateful, threatening, libelous or discriminatory in any way; graphically violent; or solicitous of any unlawful or misleading behaviour.
The Affiliate indemnifies and holds harmless Barn2 Media for any claim, damage, lawsuit or other consequences arising out of any breach of the Affiliate’s warranties under these Terms; or any other cost arising out of the Affiliate’s promotion of Barn2 Media’s products or services.
These terms will take effect as soon as the Affiliate submits the registration form for the Affiliate Program. Either party may terminate the agreement at any time and for any reason. No notice is required of termination. The Affiliate will receive commission for any transactions made through the referral link up until the date and time of the termination.
After termination, the Affiliate may continue promoting Barn2 Media’s products and services (unless Barn2 Media specifically requests that this stops), however they will no longer receive commission for any transactions made through the referral link.
Removal of online information
The Affiliate is expected to promote Barn2 Media’s products and services in an accurate, ethical and responsible way.
Barn2 Media reserves the right to request that any online material the Affiliate has published relating to the products and services is removed from the Internet. The Affiliate must comply with any removal requests within 2 working days.
Limitation of liability
Barn2 Media shall not be liable for any loss of profits or costs, or for any other direct or indirect damages arising out of any loss, suspension or interruption of service, termination, or any other performance of services under these Terms.
If any part of these Terms is held unenforceable or invalid for any reason, the remainder of these Terms will continue in full force and effect.
