Last Updated on June 18, 2019
As a MASK Tactical Affiliate, You have the opportunity to earn money from (i) commissions for training courses that You sell to other people, and (ii) various other products and services that we provide. This Agreement sets forth Your rights and obligations as a MASK Tactical Affiliate. By clicking “I Agree” You indicate by enrollment as an affiliate that You have read and understood this Agreement and You will be bound by its terms and also understand that it is periodically updated and continued promotion and use of our program confirm your agreeance to any future changes. Any time changes are made MASK Tactical will notify you via email as well as updates in any private affiliate groups.
1. PARTIES. All references to “You” and “Your” mean and refer to that MASK Tactical Affiliate who has executed this Agreement by clicking “I Agree.” MASK Tactical and You are each referred to herein as a “Party,” and collectively as the “Parties.”
2. INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR. You are an independent contractor of MASK Tactical. It is the express understanding and intention of the Parties that no relationship of master and servant or principal and agent shall exist between MASK Tactical and You by virtue of this Affiliate Agreement.
3. TERM AND TERMINATION. Your contract with MASK Tactical begins when You click “I Agree,” and will continue month-to-month until either:
A. MASK Tactical cancels Your account due to Your breach of any of the terms of this Agreement. In the event this Agreement is canceled due to Your breach, You forfeit all Commissions and Bonuses owed to You or that may in the future be owed to You.
B. MASK Tactical or its successors or assigns, in its sole and absolute discretion, cancels Your Affiliate Agreement. In the event that MASK Tactical or its successors or assigns cancel Your Affiliate Agreements, You will first receive thirty (30) days’ written notice, sent to the e-mail address you provided MASK Tactical and that is associated with your Affiliate profile.
A. COMMISSIONS. After You click “I Agree” to the terms of this Agreement, You will receive a unique Affiliate URL, which You will use to advertise MASK Tactical & It’s products & Services. When another person (a “Prospect”) clicks through that URL, a cookie (or similar tracking technology (hereinafter “Cookie”)) will be set in the Prospect’s browser. When the Prospect purchases a MASK Tactical affiliate eligible product or service by using Your Affiliate Link, the Cookie on the Prospect’s browser, corresponding to Your unique URL, registers a “Sale,” and each such account is a “Sold Account.” In the event that a Prospect has multiple Affiliate Cookies, the most recently-acquired Cookie will determine which Affiliate is credited with a Sale. You will be paid a commission for each Sold Account. The Commission amount varies per product/service and is outlined in clear detail within the affiliate program information for each product/service. Commission payments will be made to You instantly or delayed based on the particular product sold. For some products/services, there is a “cool down” period for refunds in which we do not pay out until the customer has cleared this period. We can only pay commissions when a person passes the eligible refund period. If the customer purchases, and requests a refund during this period, you will not earn a commission for that sale. For certain products, we have a zero-refunds policy in place, and on those products, you will typically receive an instant commission depending upon your payout method, as well as the customer’s payment gateway. It will never take longer than 45 days for you to be paid a commission unless special uncontrollable circumstances dictate a further delay. Such as software technical difficulties, or customer transaction disputes, which are slightly different than refund requests.
B. TAXES. Before You can be paid any Commission or Bonuses, You must provide MASK Tactical a completed W-8 or W-9, as instructed by MASK Tactical. You will be deemed to have permanently waived all rights to Commissions or Bonuses that were earned more than 120 days before submitting a completed W-8 or W-9 to MASK Tactical. You are responsible for any and all tax liabilities, including without limitation income tax liabilities that arise from or in any way relate to any commissions or bonuses You receive from MASK Tactical. If You are not a resident of the United States, MASK Tactical may withhold tax (including without limitation VAT) where required to by applicable law. Where MASK Tactical is required to withhold tax, MASK Tactical will document such withholding.
C. COMMISSION AND BONUSES PAID FOLLOWING LEGITIMATE SALE. Commissions and Bonuses are paid only for transactions that actually occur between MASK Tactical and a Sale. If the transaction does not actually occur, or if payment from a Sale is not actually received by MASK Tactical, You will not be paid a Commission or Bonus on the transaction. If payment for a Sold Account later results in a refund or charge-back, and if a commission or bonus was paid to You for that Sold Account payment, then the commission or bonus will be deducted from Your future commissions. If MASK Tactical determines, in its reasonable discretion, that any Sale was procured fraudulently or as a result of any violation of this Agreement, no Commission or Bonus will be paid for such Sale. If any Commissions or Bonuses are paid for a Sale that was produced fraudulently or as a result of any violation of this Agreement, and the fraud or violation is discovered by MASK Tactical after payment, such payment amounts shall be deducted from Your future commissions and bonuses.
D. U.S. DOLLARS. All commissions are paid in US Dollars via PayPal or check.
E. COMMISSION PAYMENT REQUIREMENT AND FORFEITURE. Active paid Tribe Memberships are required to receive a commission payout. In the event of your membership being canceled for any reason, all commissions, and credit for any sales while the membership is inactive will be voided/forfeited. You will not earn commissions for sales made while your tribe membership isn’t active and in good standing. Credit for any recurring sales made prior to the cancelation of membership will continue to be credited to your account but will be automatically forfeited until we have an active paid tribe membership in good standing. If your membership is reactivated, we will resume any recurring commission payments for past sales from the moment the membership is back in good standing. In short and simpler terms… For you to get paid, you must be an active tribe member. For you to promote us, you must be an active tribe member. If you cancel, your affiliate links will cease to track and credit you for sales, and you will forfeit any commissions that come in from recurring sales made prior to your membership cancelation. You will still be credit for these sales, you will just forfeit any commissions generated while your membership is inactive. We do not hold these commissions. They are immediately forfeited due to you not having an active tribe membership. To ensure you never have issues with this, do your best to always keep your tribe membership in good standing and never let it cancel. We do not wish to withhold or keep your commissions for any reason, but having an active tribe membership is a requirement of our affiliate program and we enforce this to be fair to all of our affiliates.
F. COMMISSION PAYOUTS & THRESHOLDS. The minimum amount of commissions accumulated must be equal to or greater than $100 to qualify for a payout. MASK Tactical reserves the right to withhold commission payments until the minimum total payout amount is $100 or greater. If you receive a commission payment of a lesser amount it is done so only at MASK Tactical’s discretion. MASK Tactical makes commission payments on the 1st and the 15th of the month. If either of those dates falls on a weekend, it will be conducted on the first following business day. MASK Tactical reserves the right to make payouts on any day of the month but will generally try to stick to this payout schedule. Payouts will only occur for transactions that have cleared any applicable refund periods. Refund periods vary product to product and are visible for you to see through the affiliate platform.
