Affiliate Program Terms Of Service
Last updated: May 25, 2022
Terms and conditions
Please read this affiliate program agreement carefully.
This is a contract between you (the “Affiliate”) and us (“ContentStudio”).
It describes how we will work together and other aspects of our business relationship. It is a legal document so some of the languages are necessary “legalese” but we have tried to make it as readable as possible.
The ContentStudio Affiliate Program Agreement applies to your participation in ContentStudio Affiliate Program (the “Affiliate Program”). These terms are so important that we cannot have you participate in our Affiliate Program unless you agree to them.
ContentStudio reserves the right to update these terms periodically. ContentStudio also reserves the right to replace these terms in their entirety if, for example, the Affiliate Program changes, ends, or becomes part of an existing or new program, including our partner programs.
If ContentStudio updates or replaces the terms of this Agreement, we will let the Affiliate know via electronic means, which may include an in-app or in-account notification or by email.
If the Affiliate does not agree to the update or replacement, you can choose to terminate as we describe below.
1. Affiliate partner application approval
The approval or rejection of ANY Affiliate Program Application is upon our sole and absolute discretion. You will have no legal recourse against us for the rejection of your Affiliate Program Application.
2. Commissions and payment
All sales happening in a given month are released after 45 days. Commissions are paid once a month. For you to receive commission against a referral, the account must remain active for – days.
You will not receive commission against your own account nor can you refer yourself. There is a limit of one commission per referral. If someone clicks the link on your site and orders multiple accounts, then you will receive a commission on the first order only.
Payments will be made only against those transactions that have been successfully completed. Chargebacks or refunds will not be paid out. In order to receive payment under this Agreement, you must have: (i) agreed to the terms of this Agreement (generally completed through the Affiliate Tool); (ii) completed all steps necessary to create your account in the Affiliate Tool in accordance with our directions, (iii) have a valid and up-to-date payment method in the Affiliate Tool with such account (iv) completed any and all required tax documentation in order for the Affiliate Tool to process any payments that may be owed to you.

You can use the text or graphics provided by us or create your own version of promotional material as long as they do not violate point No. 3
5. Pay per click (PPC) policy
PPC bidding is NOT allowed without prior written permission. Any affiliate found running campaigns on ContentStudio’s branded keywords will be terminated immediately.
6. Acceptance and validity
You will only be eligible for a Commission payment for any Customer Transactions that are derived from Affiliate Leads generated by the Affiliate Link that we make available to you and are accepted by ContentStudio. An Affiliate Lead will be considered valid and accepted if, in our reasonable determination: (i) it is a new potential customer of ours, and (ii) is not, at the time of submission or sixty (60) days prior, one of our pre-existing customers, or involved in our active sales process. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may choose not to accept an Affiliate Lead in our reasonable discretion. If an Affiliate Lead does not purchase the Subscription Service within the time period described on the Affiliate Tool (or if applicable, in the Program Policies) of their first click on the Affiliate Link, you will not be eligible for a Commission payment, even if the Affiliate Lead decides to purchase after the time period has expired. An Affiliate Lead is not considered valid if its first click on the Affiliate Link is after this Agreement has expired or terminated. Engagement with Prospects. Once we have received the Affiliate Lead information, we may elect to engage with the prospect directly, regardless of whether or not the Affiliate Lead is valid. If an Affiliate Lead is not valid then we may choose to maintain it in our database and we may choose to engage with such Affiliate Lead. Any engagement between ContentStudio and an Affiliate Lead will be at ContentStudio’s discretion.
You grant to us a nonexclusive, non-transferable, royalty-free right to use and display your trademarks, service marks, and logos (“Affiliate Marks”) in connection with the Affiliate Program and this Agreement.

You must: (i) only use the images of our trademark that we make available to you, without altering them in any way; (ii) only use our trademarks in connection with the Affiliate Program and this Agreement; and (iii) immediately comply if we request that you discontinue use. You must not: (i) use our trademark in a misleading or disparaging way; (ii) use our trademark in a way that implies we endorse, sponsor or approve of your services or products; or (iii) use our trademark in violation of applicable law or in connection with an obscene, indecent, or unlawful topic or material.
