SECTION IV: AFFILIATE PROGRAM TERMS
Participants in Starloop’s Affiliate Program have the opportunity to earn a commission on the customers they refer to Starloop provided they properly promote Starloop products and services and play by the rules. By accepting these terms on signup, Affiliates and potential Affiliates agree to the following:
4.1. Affiliate Role and Responsibilities.
Affiliate is appointed as an authorized non-exclusive independent representative to promote and sell all services provided by Starloop. Affiliate shall devote such time, energy and skill on a regular and consistent basis as is necessary to sell and promote the sale of Starloop’s Services during the term of this Agreement. Affiliate’s sales and promotional efforts shall be directed toward small business owners and small business marketers broadly, inclusive of local brick-and-mortar businesses, professional service providers, marketing consultants and other appropriate customers for Starloop’s services. Affiliate shall not have exclusive right nor be restricted in its sales and promotional efforts by the geography, specialty, size or number of its customers. Affiliate shall represent itself to customers only as an independent entity operating under its own name, never as a subsidiary, owner, employee, or other relationship to Starloop. Affiliate shall periodically, or at any time upon Starloop’s request, submit documentation of any and all sales and promotional efforts performed or to be performed pursuant to this Agreement.
Starloop shall pay Affiliate a commission equal to a percentage of billing on Services sold or arranged by Affiliate according to current commission rates. Because Starloop’s Services are available for purchase online in an open market, Affiliate’s sales must be verified as belonging to Affiliate. To verify a sale, the customer must enter Affiliate’s code at the time of purchase. Commissions will be paid on fees for services sold or arranged by Affiliate and shall not include freight, supplies, vendor services and other charges incidental to the performance of said services. Commission paid shall be subject to withholding in the event it appears a chargeback or refund shall be claimed under a previously-paid commission.
4.3. Independent Contractors.
For all purposes of this Agreement each party shall be and act as an independent contractor and not as partner, joint venturer, employer, employee or agent of the other and shall not bind nor attempt to bind the other to any contract. Starloop shall not be required to withhold any amounts for state or federal income tax or for FICA taxes from sums becoming due to Affiliate under this Agreement. Affiliate shall not be considered an employee of Starloop and shall not be entitled to participate in any plan, arrangement or distribution by Starloop pertaining to or in connection with any pension, stock, bonus, profit sharing or other benefit extended to Starloop’s employees. The rights and duties of Affiliate under this Agreement may not be assigned or delegated without prior written consent of Starloop. Affiliate is not authorized to extend any warranty or guarantee or to make representations or claims with respect to Starloop’s services without express written authorization from Starloop.
Starloop may terminate its Affiliate Program or any individual Affiliate agreement at any time at its sole discretion.
