Mighty Networks Affiliate Program Agreement

Last updated: November 27, 2019

 

This Mighty Networks Affiliate Program Agreement (“Agreement”) applies to each affiliate’s (“Affiliate,” “you” or “your”) participation in the Mighty Networks Affiliate Program (the “Program”), which is operated by Mighty Software (“Mighty Software”, “our”, “us” or “we”) to promote its Mighty Networks products and services. This Agreement does not change in any way any other agreement you may have with us. This Agreement incorporates by reference our Site Terms of Use at https://mightynetworks.com/terms-of-use (“Terms of Use”). In the event of any conflict between the Terms of Use and this Agreement related to the Program, this Agreement will control.

Each Affiliate is responsible for assuring that its employees, agents, and contractors comply with this Agreement. The “Site” refers to the Mighty Networks website at https://mightynetworks.com/ and “Your Website” refers to any websites on which you place links to our Site.

  1. Enrollment

To enroll in the Program, you must (1) complete the registration process at affiliate.mightynetworks.com and (2) provide a valid PayPal account for receiving payment.  We may grant or deny your enrollment in our sole discretion.  We reserve the right to terminate this Agreement and your participation in the Program at any time with or without notice.  You may not apply if you reside in countries currently under sanction by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”); see the current list at http://www.treas.gov/offices/enforcement/ofac/programs.

  1. How the Program Works

Once you are accepted into the Program, we will grant you access to the affiliate website, where you will be able to set up your affiliate account and browse tools. These tools include unique links to our Site for placement on Your Website (“Links”). We will also give you access to our brand guidelines (“Brand Guidelines”) and materials that you can use to promote the Site to potential Mighty Networks Hosts (“Licensed Materials”). You earn Affiliate Fees and Referral Fees when someone you promoted Mighty Networks to becomes a Host.

  1. Earning Fees

When visitors to Your Site click on a Link to our Website, and become a Host within 60 days of clicking on the Link, you will earn a commission on the amount paid by the Host for three (3) years from the date they first became a Host (“Affiliate Fee”), provided that they purchase one of our Premium Plans, not including the Mighty Pro Plan. The Affiliate Fee for all Premium Plan referrals (not including the Mighty Pro Plan) is 25% of the amount the Host paid for the Premium Plan. For example, if someone you refer through the Link is on a monthly payment plan for $98 a month, you will receive an Affiliate Fee of $24.50 for every month they are an active, paying customer.

For all new Mighty Pro Plans successfully launched due to a Qualified Introduction you make, we will pay you a one-time referral fee of $3000 (“Referral Fee”), approximately fifteen (15) days after we receive payment from the referred Mighty Pro Host. A Qualified Introduction is an emailed introduction by an Affiliate personally introducing a potential host to a Mighty Software employee who is also a Mighty Pro account manager, provided that the potential Host has not already been introduced to anyone at Mighty Software. Whether a prior introduction has occurred is determined solely by Mighty Software.

You will not receive an Affiliate Fee or Referral Fee (collectively, “Fee(s)”) for any refunded or returned transactions. If a refund is issued after the Fee has already been approved and paid, a negative balance will be created on your account and will be deducted from future Fees.

The Affiliate Fee will go to the last Link that the person making the purchase clicked before completing their transaction, provided that they become a Host within 60 days of the Link being clicked. For example, if Customer A clicks on a Link provided by Affiliate X, but then clicks on a Link provided by Affiliate Y and then becomes a Host, Affiliate Y will receive the full Affiliate Fee for transactions related to Customer A. Affiliate Fees will not be split or transferred.  For clarity, clicks on Links are valid for 60 days, so if a customer becomes a Host more than 60 days after clicking the Link, you will not receive an Affiliate Fee for such transaction.

  1. Program Restrictions

    a) Compliance with Law: You represent, warrant, and covenant that, in connection with your participation in the Program, you, Your Website(s), and your use of the Licensed Materials, will not violate any law, regulation, or regulatory rules or guidelines, including the Federal Trade Commission’s endorsement disclosure requirements pursuant to Section 5 below.

  1. FTC Disclosure Requirements

Where it is not expressly clear that the Link is a paid advertisement, paid advertising, or otherwise promotional in nature, and/or that you are receiving compensation from Mighty Software in connection with the Program, you must include a disclosure statement within any and all pages, blog posts, social media posts, or any other content where you include a Link or otherwise advertise or endorse the Site or Mighty Networks in connection with the Program. This “material connection disclosure” statement should be clear and concise, stating that we are compensating you for your participation in the Program. Also, any statements you make about Mighty Software and its Mighty Networks must reflect your honest opinions, beliefs, or experiences and must not be false, misleading, or unsupported. You must follow these guidelines in making your material connection disclosures:

  • Disclosures must be made as close as possible to the claims.
  • Disclosures should be placed above the fold; scrolling should not be necessary to find the disclosure. (e.g. Disclosure should be visible before the jump).
  • Pop-up disclosures are prohibited.

For more information about FTC disclosure requirements, see the FTC’s “Dot Com Disclosures” Guidelines at http://www.ftc.gov/os/2013/03/130312dotcomdisclosures.pdf; and the FTC’s Endorsement Guidelines at http://business.ftc.gov/advertising-and-marketing/endorsements.

  1. Payment of Fees

Only transactions made by the referred individual that are completed after last using your Link will result in Affiliate Fees. You will not receive Affiliate Fees for transactions that are canceled, returned, charged back, or refunded. Affiliate Fees typically take 30-60 days to process in order to account for any refunds. Affiliate Fees will be approved on or about the 1st of every month with payouts on or about the 2nd of every month (excluding holidays and weekends, which will be approved or paid on or about the next business day). For example, if you earn an Affiliate Fee on August 5th, it, along with all August Affiliate Fees, would likely be approved by October 1 and paid on October 2.

If the Host that you refer pays monthly, you will receive payment of Affiliate Fees monthly. If the person that you refer pays annually, you will receive one payment of Affiliate Fees for the year, within approximately 60 days after the person pays for their annual purchase (provided the person does not obtain a refund).

We reserve the right to exclude transactions and to not pay Affiliate Fees for them, if we deem it necessary, in our sole discretion, to prevent abuse of the Program, or to reject orders that do not comply with any requirements that we periodically may establish. If we ask you for clarification or more information on any orders or clicks that we suspect may be in violation of this Agreement, or any other terms and conditions that we publish on our website at mightynetworks.com/affiliate-program-agreement, we expect that you will respond in a timely and honest manner. A failure to be forthcoming, responsive, or provide requested substantiation may result in your termination and removal from the Program.

You are responsible for all taxes and reporting requirements related to your Affiliate Fees.

A statement of activity is available to you through your affiliate interface.

  1. Audits/Records

You will maintain accurate and complete records relating to your conduct under the Program. Upon request, which may be made no more often than once a year, you will enable Mighty Software or its designated service provider to audit your records and other materials to verify your compliance with the Agreement. In addition, you will promptly provide such records and other materials, and provide other cooperation and assistance, as requested by Mighty Software.

If we make changes, we will post the amended Agreement to www.mightynetworks/affiliate-tos and update the “Effective Date” above. We may also attempt to notify you in other ways, including via email.

If you do not agree to the amended Agreement, you must stop participating in the Program.
