Affiliate terms and conditions
Enrolment in the programme
You agree that all information in your application is true and accurate and understand and accept that any false information may result in the termination of your application. We may reject your application or terminate your participation in the affiliates programme if we determine (at our sole discretion) that your site contain objectionable material or not fit our affiliate strategy. If your application is terminated for this or any other reason after it has been accepted, you automatically and immediately forfeit all commissions earned that have yet to be paid to you from the time of termination or decline.
Linking to our site
We will provide you with guidelines regarding linking to our website. We will provide you with "tagged" affiliate links to permit accurate tracking, reporting, and commission fee accrual. You are responsible for ensuring that any link used is error free. Any errors in links and subsequent mistracking of commissions are your sole responsibility and you will not be compensated for them by MCanvasPrints in any form. You agree to promptly implement any request from us to remove or modify any links to us that is being used by you.
You may only place affiliate links on sites owned and operated by you. Any website you wish to use for our affiliate programme must be declared when you sign up. You may modify this list of websites once you have been approved for the affiliate programme. This means that you MAY NOT post your affiliate link to message boards, forums, news readers or online groups. It is also against your affiliate agreement to advertise the affiliate link via E-mail unless you have received written permission by MCanvasPrints to do so.
Use of banners, images and other promotional material
Promotional material will be provided to you in our affiliate section. You may not copy any other content, neither text nor images, from MCanvasPrints without permission. You are not permitted to use our advertising material for any purpose other than the promotion of our products. We grant you a non-exclusive, revocable right to use the promotional material provided to you for advertising our site. You may not under any circumstances change the appearance of or modify our banners and images in any way without our written permission.
We will process product orders placed by customers who follow affiliate links from your site to our site. We will be responsible for all aspects of order processing and fulfilment. We will track sales made to customers who purchase products using affiliate links from your site to our site and will make available to you reports summarising this sales activity.
We will pay you commission fees on product sales to third parties. For a product sale to be eligible to earn a commission fee, the customer must follow an affiliate link from your site directly to our site, select and purchase the product using our automated ordering system, remit full payment to us and accept delivery of the product at the delivery destination. We agree to pay you a commission of 15% on qualifying revenues. Qualifying revenues shall mean the amount invoiced to the customer minus discounts, refunds, delivery charge and credit card fraud. You will earn this commission unless we tell you otherwise.
Commission fee payment
We will pay you commission fees on a monthly basis. Within 31 days following the end of each calendar month, we will pay you the commission fees earned on our sales of qualifying products that were delivered during that month, less any taxes that we are required by law to withhold. Commission will be payable monthly into the affiliate's nominated PayPal Account. It is the affiliate's responsibility to keep MCanvasPrints informed of any changes to their PayPal account. However, if the commission fees payable to you for any month are less than £10.00, we will hold those commission fees until the total amount due is at least £10.00 or (if earlier) until this agreement is terminated. If the customer returns a product that generated a commission fee, we will deduct the corresponding commission fee from your next monthly payment. If there is no subsequent payment, we will send you an invoice for the fee.
Term of the agreement
The term of this agreement will begin upon our acceptance of your programme application and will end when terminated by either party. Either you or we may terminate this agreement at any time, with or without cause, by giving the other party written notice of such termination to the other party via E-mail. Upon the termination of this agreement for any reason, you will immediately cease use of, and remove from your site, all images, logos and any other materials that may have been provided by us.
We may modify any of the terms and conditions contained in this agreement, at any time and in our sole discretion, by posting a change notice or a new agreement on our Site. Modifications may include, for example, changes in the scope of available referral fees, commission fee schedules, payment procedures, and programme rules.
If any modification is unacceptable to you, your only recourse is to terminate this agreement. Your continued participation in the engagement following our posting of a change notice or new agreement on our site will constitute binding acceptance of the change.
I. We make no representation that the operation of our site will be uninterrupted or error-free, and we will not be liable for the consequences of any interruptions or errors.
II. MCanvasPrints assumes no responsibility for paying taxes on behalf of affiliates. By participating in the programme, affiliates assume complete and sole responsibility for any taxes owed as a consequence of participation in the programme.
