Agreement

By signing up to be an Affiliate in the YAMweb® eStore Affiliate Program (“Program”) you are agreeing to be bound by the following terms and conditions (“Terms of Service”).

YAMweb® eStore reserves the right to update and change the Terms of Service from time to time without notice. Any new features that augment or enhance the current Program, including the release of new products and resources, shall be subject to the Terms of Service. Continued use of the Program after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes.

Violation of any of the terms below will result in the termination of your Account and for forfeiture of any outstanding affiliate commission payments earned during the violation.

Account Terms

  • Fundraising Affiliates MUST be a public/private school, educational organization or an approved alternative education program to participate.
  • You must provide your school/organization full name, a valid contact email address, and any other information requested in order to complete the Affiliate registration process.
  • You are responsible for maintaining the security of your Fundraising Affiliate account. The YAMweb® eStore cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with this security obligation.
  • You may not use the Affiliate Program for any illegal or unauthorized purpose. You must not, in the use of the Program, violate any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws).
  • You may use the Affiliate Program to earn monetary resources only on the approved school/organization web site.

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 the YAMweb® eStore. 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.

We will provide you with a special link format for use between your school’s site and the YAMweb® eStore. You must ensure that the link between your site and the YAMweb® eStore properly utilizes such special link format. Links to the YAMweb® eStore 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 payouts only with respect to sales on a YAMweb® eStore 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 incorrectly, 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 YAMweb® eStore Landing Page ONLY!

Fundraising Payment

For a Product sale to be eligible to earn a payment, the customer must click-through the Special Link from your site to https://yamweb.org/estore and complete an order and payment for a product during the visit.

We will only make payments on links that are automatically tracked and reported by our system. We will not pay commissions if someone says they purchased from the site and that payment is never recorded. We reserve the right to disqualify payments earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive or questionable/unverified sales.

Payments to Fundraising Affiliates begin once earnings more reach $100 in affiliate income. If your affiliate account never crosses the $100 threshold, and is closed/terminated, the balance will be issued to you at closing.

Identifying yourself as a YAMweb® eStore Affiliate

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. In addition, you may not in any manner misrepresent or embellish the relationship between us and you, say you develop our products, say you are part of YAMweb® eStore or express or imply any relationship or affiliation between us and you or any other person or entity except as expressly permitted by this Agreement (including by expressing or implying that we support, sponsor, endorse, or contribute money to any charity or other cause).

Payment schedule

As long as your current affiliate earning are over $100, you’ll be paid each month. If you haven’t earned $20 since your last payment, we’ll pay you the following month after you’ve crossed the threshold.

Accordingly, all of our rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service, and product sales will apply to those customers. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. For example, we will determine the prices to be charged for products sold under this Program in accordance with our own pricing policies. Product prices and availability may vary from time to time.
