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 Tasha’s Tax Talk. 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 Tasha’s Tax Talk. You must ensure that each of the links between your site and the Tasha’s Tax Talk prop­er­ly uti­lizes such spe­cial link for­mats. Links to the Tasha’s Tax Talk 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 Tasha’s Tax Talk 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 being pro­mot­ed.

Referral fees/commissions and payment

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 http://www.tashastaxtalk.com and com­plete an order for a prod­uct dur­ing that ses­sion.

We will only pay com­mis­sions on links that are auto­mat­i­cal­ly tracked and report­ed by our sys­tems. We will not pay com­mis­sions if some­one says they pur­chased or some­one says they entered a refer­ral code if it was not tracked by our sys­tem. 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 $20 in affil­i­ate income. If your affil­i­ate account nev­er cross­es the $20 thresh­old, your com­mis­sions will not be real­ized or paid. We are only respon­si­ble for pay­ing accounts that have crossed the $20 thresh­old.

Identifying yourself as a Tasha’s Tax Talk 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 Tasha’s Tax Talk 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).

You may not pur­chase prod­ucts through your affil­i­ate links for your own use. Such pur­chas­es may result (in our sole dis­cre­tion) in the with­hold­ing of refer­ral fees and/or the ter­mi­na­tion of this Agree­ment.

Payment schedule

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

Customer definition

Cus­tomers who buy prod­ucts through this Pro­gram will be deemed to be our cus­tomers. 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. Because price changes may affect Prod­ucts that you have list­ed on your site, you should not dis­play prod­uct prices on your site. We will use com­mer­cial­ly rea­son­able efforts to present accu­rate infor­ma­tion, but we can­not guar­an­tee the avail­abil­i­ty or price of any par­tic­u­lar prod­uct.
