4. Referral fees/commissions and payment
4.1. Fees and Commissions:
The commission received by a partner is 40% of the customer's fee. The commission will be paid to the partner for every recurring payment received by Corset Academy as long as the customer remains a Corset Academy member.
In other words – a partner will receive a monthly (or yearly) 40% commission for every customer that signs up for Corset Academy Membership through his/her affiliate link.
Corset Academy pays affiliates via a PayPal account, provided to us when a member joins. If the PayPal email changes, it is the responsibility of the affiliate to notify the Affiliate Program to ensure proper commission payments. We will not resend payments returned due to incorrect payment email addresses.
4.3. Payment Conditions
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 https://corsetacademy.net and complete an order for a product during that session. The session ends once someone closes their web browser, navigates away from the https://corsetacademy.net, or otherwise leaves https://corsetacademy.net without ordering a product before leaving the site. If a user comes to the website via an affiliate link and purchases something within 11 days, the affiliate who referred the user will receive commission for it. We will only pay commissions on links that are automatically tracked and reported by our systems. 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 $50 in affiliate income.
4.4. Payment schedule
As long as your current affiliate earning is over $50, you'll be paid at the first business day of each month. If you haven't earned $50 since your last payment, we'll pay you the following month after you've crossed the threshold.
5. 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 Corset Academy. 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 Corset Academy. You must ensure that each of the links between your site and the Corset Academy properly utilizes such special link formats. Links to the Corset Academy 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 Corset Academy 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 (or course) being promoted.

You may not issue any press release with respect to this Agreement or your participation in the Program; such action may result in your termination from the Program.

9. Promotion Restrictions
9.1. You are free to promote your own web sites, but naturally any promotion that mentions Corset Academy could be perceived by the public or the press as a joint effort. You should know that certain forms of advertising are always prohibited by Corset Academy. For example, advertising commonly referred to as "spamming" is unacceptable to us and could cause damage to our name. Other generally prohibited forms of advertising include the use of unsolicited commercial email (UCE), postings to non-commercial newsgroups and cross-posting to multiple newsgroups at once. In addition, you may not advertise in any way that effectively conceals or misrepresents your identity, your domain name, or your return email address. You may use mailings to customers to promote Corset Academy so long as the recipient is already a customer or subscriber of your services or web site, and recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings. Also, you may post to newsgroups to promote Corset Academy so long as the news group specifically welcomes commercial messages. At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your web sites as independent from Corset Academy. If it comes to our attention that you are spamming, we will consider that cause for immediate termination of this Agreement and your participation in the Corset Academy Affiliate Program. Any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.

However, we reserve the right to expel any trademark violator from our affiliate program without prior notice, and on the first occurrence of such PPC bidding behavior.
