These terms and conditions (“Affiliate Agreement”) constitute a legal agreement between the person or entity (“Affiliate” or “you”) whose name and address appear in the application (“Application”) to participate in the Advanced Bionutritionals LLC Affiliate Program (the "Program"), available through the Affiliate Program. Subject to the terms specified herein, Affiliate may receive compensation for promoting the products of Advanced Bionutritionals LLC (“AB” or “Advanced Bionutritionals”) by using advertising messages including, but not limited to, testimonials, endorsements, blogs, demonstrations, web sites, banner ads, links, and search engine optimization tools (collectively, “Ads”).

  • 1. Your Responsibility

  • a.

    You shall promote AB’s products using promotional materials, content, messaging, ads, graphic files, and similar media supplied or approved in advance by Advanced Bionutritionals (“Creative”). You agree that the Creative constitutes AB’s intellectual property and shall not be reproduced without AB’s express, written consent. In performing services under this Agreement, you shall not use any marketing or promotional materials not provided by AB unless you first receive AB’s prior written consent. Advanced Bionutritionals shall have the exclusive right to determine the acceptability of such materials. You shall not edit, alter, or make any changes to the Creative, without prior written approval from AB. If Affiliate changes the Creative without AB’s prior written consent, Affiliate shall forfeit all payments under the Agreement and AB may terminate this Agreement. AB may change or remove any Creative for any reason, with or without notice. You shall discontinue use and dissemination of the Creative within two (2) business days of AB’s request.

  • b.

    Pricing: You are prohibited from offering discounts, coupons, and bundle offers to third parties for AB’s products.

  • c.

    Links on Your Site: You may select one or more of AB’s products to list on your site and shall display on your site an approved description, banner, or other reference. You will be provided a special dedicated link from each product reference on your site, which will connect the user to AB’s site and will track and attribute any sales made through your site. To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and fee accrual, you must ensure that these tracking links are properly formatted and functioning. You shall not alter, modify, eliminate, conceal, or otherwise render inoperable or ineffective any site tags, source codes, links, pixels, modules or other data provided by or obtained from AB that allow AB to measure performance of Affiliate and calculate payments. The tracking cookies expire 120 days after the prospective customer first visits AB’s site, after which the referral’s purchases on AB’s site will no longer be attributable to you. You agree to promptly make any changes to your references or links to our products that we may request.

  • d.

    Referral Fees:

  • New to File Names: When you refer a name with an email address that is new to the AB list of names (“New to File”), you will receive 35% commission on the first sale (less cost and shipping) and you will receive 15% referral commission from any subsequent purchases (less product cost and shipping) that the customer associated with such name makes during the 120 days after the initial sale. If your referred name with email address returns after the 120 day initial sale period and makes an additional purchase using your affiliate qualified product link, that sale will be treated as an existing name transaction and subject to the below terms.

    Existing Names: If your referred name with email address is already in our list of names, we will award a one-time bonus of 15% for the sale (less cost and shipping). You will not receive any commission fees for any subsequent orders that this name makes. Commission fees on this purchase will be paid after the 90-day guarantee period has expired. “Sales” means the then-current sale price listed on our website and excludes costs of goods, cost of shipping to the end user, and cost of any returns. You are not eligible for commission fees from names that place an order by phone or mail.

  • e.

    Fee Payment: We offer customers a 90-day return policy, and our Affiliates shall not be entitled to referral fees for any products that are returned within 90 days of the purchase date. We will pay you commission fees on the 1st of the month 30 days after the month in which the sale was executed. For example, if sales are made in the month of October, your referral fees would be paid on December 1st. Minimum commission amount must reach One Hundred and 00/100 U.S. dollars ($100 USD) to be paid. If a sale that generated a referral fee is returned by the purchaser, or if there is a chargeback for such sale, the corresponding fee shall be deducted from your next payment. You shall be responsible for paying taxes on your earnings derived from this relationship. Commission may be less if any taxes are required to be withheld under applicable law.

    If you wish to dispute AB’s sales reports, you shall contact affiliate manager at affiliates@AdvancedBionutritionals.com within thirty (30) days of the date of the disputed report. AB will work with you in good faith to resolve any such dispute; however, AB shall make the final determination as to resolution of all disputes. Unless otherwise arranged with AB and confirmed in writing, payments to you will be made via the PayPal account you provide to AB. U.S. Affiliates MUST complete a W9 before receiving any commissions. AB affiliate program is available to U.S. Affiliates only.

  • f.

    Access Sales Reports: Affiliates may access sales reports attributable to their referrals, including conversion data, campaign links, banners, email assets, and commissions earned, by logging into AB’s affiliate portal. You agree that AB owns all such information, and you shall not rent, sell, loan, share, barter or otherwise transfer or disclose such information to any third party without our prior written consent.

  • g.

    Personal Use of AB Products: The Program is intended for commercial use only, and you shall not purchase products through the Program for your own use or for you to give or sell to others. Such purchases may result, in our sole discretion, in the withholding of referral fees or the termination of this Agreement.

  • h.

    Responsibility for Your Site: You shall be solely responsible for the development, operation, and maintenance of your site and for all materials that appear on your site. For example, you shall be responsible for: the technical operation of your site, the accuracy and appropriateness of materials posted on your site, ensuring that materials on your site do not violate or infringe upon the rights of any third party (such as copyrights, trademarks, privacy, or other personal or proprietary rights), ensuring that materials posted on your site are not libelous or otherwise illegal, and ensuring that you link to AB’s site in the format specified by us. In addition, you agree that you shall not directly or indirectly disparage AB’s brand or products, or take any action that threatens our brand integrity (in our sole discretion).
