SECTION 3. COMPENSATION
If Applicant is approved by Laptop Freedom to become an Affiliate, Applicant will receive a unique Affiliate ID. The Affiliate ID will be incorporated within each URL which Applicant will use to advertise Laptop Freedom. Applicant will have the opportunity to receive a commission for each sale (“Sale”) that is registered using the Applicant Affiliate ID.
If an Affiliate brings Laptop Freedom a new user (Sold Account) and that new user remains in good standing for thirty (30) days after the Sale, the Affiliate will be paid a commission for each Sold Account that generates a payment to Laptop Freedom in a month (“Commission”). Except as otherwise provided herein, Commission payments will be paid on the 1st and 15th of each month following Laptop Freedom’s receipt of payment for a Sold Account, subject to the other terms of this Agreement. In the event the 1st or 15th of each month falls on a holiday, Commission payments will be paid on the next business day following the holiday. All Commission payments are based on the amount of fees received by Laptop Freedom, less sales taxes.
All approved Affiliates with receive a 50% commission for the Sold Accounts that remain in good standing for thirty (30) days after the Sale. All Commissions will be paid in U.S. Dollars (USD). Some payment methods may incur processing fees that may be deducted from Your Commissions payment.
In order to receive Commissions, the Affiliate will need to register with PayPal to receive payment of Commissions. This means You are authorizing third party companies to contact You. Before You receive any Commission, You must provide Laptop Freedom with a completed W-8 or W-9 tax form, as instructed by Laptop Freedom, as well as any supplemental information requested by Laptop Freedom or its third-party payment provider. You will be deemed to have permanently waived all rights to Commissions that were earned more than 90 days before submitting a completed W-8 or W-9 tax form or any supplemental documentation that is requested to confirm the information on your tax form. If You are not a resident of the United States, Laptop Freedom may withhold tax (including without limitation VAT) where required by applicable law. You are solely responsible for complying with all tax laws in Your respective jurisdiction(s) including, but not limited to, the payment of all required taxes, and filing of all returns and other required documents with the necessary governing bodies. Additionally, if You believe there is a missing or inaccurate credit for a commission You earned, You must claim it by notifying us within 15 days from the date of purchase.
Affiliates will not earn Commission on payments made on Affiliate’s own user account(s). Affiliates are not authorized to open an Laptop Freedom account under the name of a fictitious person, another person, or another entity for the purpose of obtaining Commissions. Affiliates may not pay for another person’s or entity’s account in order to earn Commission. Affiliates are not authorized to offer cash incentives to acquire Sales.
Commissions are only paid for confirmed transactions, which occur when Laptop Freedom obtains payment for a Sale. If payment for a Sold Account later results in a refund, and if a Commission was paid to You for that Sold Account payment, then that Commission will be deducted from Your future Commissions. Additionally, any money owed to Laptop Freedom by an Affiliate for the program itself will be deducted from Affiliate’s commission compensation if Affiliate fails to make a timely payment to Laptop Freedom for the program they chose.
If Laptop Freedom determines that any Sale was procured by misrepresentation, fraud, or as a result of a violation of this Agreement or an applicable law, no Commission will be paid for such Sale, and Laptop Freedom may terminate this Agreement immediately without Laptop Freedom having any liability to You.
