Easyspace Affiliates Terms & Conditions
This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to an individual's or entity's participation in the Easyspace Affiliates programme (the "programme"). As used in this Agreement, "we" means Easyspace Ltd., "you" means the applicant, and "services" means those specific services that Easyspace recognise as part of the affiliate programme which may be amended at the sole discretion of Easyspace.
"Site" means a World Wide Web site and, depending on the context, refers either to Easyspace's site or to the site that you will use to link to our site. "Link" means an HTML form or link or banner provided by Easyspace which directs the customer's web browser to our site. "new and unique" refers to a purchase where that customer's details and credit card have not previously been used to purchase services from Easyspace.
To register for the programme, you will complete online registration via our site.
We may reject your application if we determine (in our sole discretion) that your site or application is unsuitable for the programme.
2. LINKING TO EASYSPACE
You may not alter product images, descriptions or pricing. We provide all banners, buttons, links and HTML code which must be used exactly as provided.
Brand bidding and advertising the easyspace.com web address via Pay-Per-Click (e.g. Google AdWords, Yahoo Search, MSN AdCentre) is not permitted unless express permission has been given by Easyspace to do so. Sales generated via Pay-Per-Click adverts (either linking to easyspace.com or using the easyspace.com address) will not be recognised and commissions will not be paid.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you will be paid commission for each new and unique customer referred from your site through the Easyspace link on your site who successfully purchases services on the Easyspace site.
If it is later determined by Easyspace that the customer is not a unique individual, or if that customer's purchase is refunded either directly by Easyspace or through "chargebacks" made to Easyspace's bank account by the credit card service supplier to Easyspace, we retain the right to withhold any payments to you resulting from that individual's purchases.
4. COMMISSION SCHEDULE
You will earn commission based on a percentage of the gross revenue after sales tax received by Easyspace from new and unique customers' purchases where that customer was referred from your site.
The percentage or commission will be 25% for each service sold. This may be amended at any time at the sole discretion of Easyspace.
5. COMMISSION PAYMENT
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you will be paid the commission each month provided that the commission earned is more than £5. If your due monthly commission does not reach £5, commissions will role over to the following month, and so on until the £5 minimum has been met.
Commission will be paid by Bank Transfer only. You must provide bank details for commission payments, otherwise commissions will be stored until such times as bank information exists.
Commissions will not be paid on sales where products have been purchased for the affiliates own use, whether generated by clicking on Easyspace affiliate banners or links on their own site or by clicking on Easyspace affiliate banners or links on other websites.
Due to the nature of the products, commissions will not be paid for sales of Gift Vouchers or for sales of .co domain names extensions during pre-registration period.
6. POLICIES AND PRICING
Customers purchasing services from Easyspace through this programme will be deemed to be customers of Easyspace.
