Your participation in the Investintech program constitutes your specific and unconditional consent to and authorization for Investintech access to, receipt, storage, use, and disclosure of any and all such information, consistent with the policies and procedures set forth in the Investintech Privacy Notices.

Identifying Yourself as an 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, 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 Investintech supports, sponsors, endorses, or contributes money to any charity or other cause).

Referral Fees

We will pay you (in accordance with Sections below) referral fees on certain Product sales to third parties. For a Product sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must click-through a Special Link from your site to our site, and add the Product to his or her shopping cart.

You may not purchase products during sessions initiated through the links on your site for your own use, for resale or commercial use of any kind. This includes orders for customers or on behalf of customers or orders for products to be used by you or your friends, relatives, or Affiliates in any manner. Such purchases may result (in our sole discretion) in the withholding of referral fees or the termination of this Agreement. Products that are eligible to earn referral fees under the rules set forth above are referred to as "Qualifying Products."

In addition, you may not:

(a) directly or indirectly offer any person or entity any consideration or incentive (including, without limitation, payment of money (including any rebate), or granting of any discount or other benefit) for using Special Links on your site to access our site (e.g., by implementing any "rewards" program for persons or entities who use Special Links on your site to access our site); (b) read, intercept, record, redirect, interpret, or fill in the contents of any electronic form or other materials submitted to us by any person or entity;

(c) in any way modify, redirect, suppress, or substitute the operation of any button, link, or other interactive feature of our site;

(d) make any orders or subscription requests, or engage in other transactions of any kind on our site on behalf of any third party, or authorize, assist, or encourage any other person or entity to do so;

(e) take any action that could reasonably cause any customer confusion as to our relationship with you, or as to the site on which any functions or transactions (e.g., search, order, browse, and so on) are occurring; or

(f) post or serve any advertisements or promotional content around or in conjunction with the display of our site (e.g., through any "framing" technique or technology or pop-up windows), or assist, authorize, or encourage any third party to take any such action. If we determine, in our sole discretion, that you have engaged in any of the foregoing activities, we may (without limiting any other rights or remedies available to us) withhold any referral fees otherwise payable to you under this Agreement and/or terminate this Agreement.

Referral Fee Schedule

You will earn referral fees based on Qualifying Revenues according to referral fee schedules to be established by us. "Qualifying Revenues" are revenues derived by us from our sales of Qualifying Products, excluding costs for shipping, handling, , taxes, service charges, credit card processing fees, returns and bad debt. The current referral fee schedule is 30% of Qualifying Revenues from each sale of Investintech's products.

Payment

All Affiliate payments will be made in U.S. dollars. If a sale is cancelled or refunded, any paid commission will be deducted from a subsequent payment. Affiliate commissions will not be paid based upon amounts that are attributable to credit card fraud, credits given to customers, bad debt right-off and returned goods. Company reserves the right to deduct in subsequent months, any commission paid for a product or service that is subsequently returned or refunded, or for any reason where the previous monthly commission was overpaid or later subject to reduction.

Affiliate is solely responsible for ensuring that their Affiliate Link is set up properly to have sale tracked and recorded to qualify for commissions. Company is not responsible for the failure to assign any sale or commissions to Affiliate if the same results from the improper formatting of any affiliate link.

Due to a 14 day Money back guarantee, all Affiliate payments will take place on the 15th of the following month, for the previous month.
