Affiliate Programme Terms & Conditions

MadPools Affiliate Program. The terms "Affiliate," "you," and "your" are referring
to you, the applicant. "We" and "our" refer to MadPools.
We are independent parties and this agreement will not form any partnership.
This agreement will begin upon our acceptance of your affiliate application
and will end when terminated by either party.
Termination may happen at any time, with or without cause, by giving the
other party written notice of termination.
By posting a Change Notice or a new agreement on this site, we may modify any
of the terms and conditions within this Agreement at any time and at our sole
discretion. These modifications may include, but not limited to changes in the
scope of available referral fees, fee schedules, payment procedures and Program
rules. If any of the modifications are UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU, your only recourse
is to terminate this Agreement. If you CONTINUE PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM
following the posting of a Change Notice or new agreement, it will be considered
as your acceptance of the change.
COMMISSION FEES AND COOKIE DURATION
Our standard commission rate is 5%. We are keen to encourage and
reward our biggest and most successful affiliates and to this end we are considering offering a bonus to any "super" affiliates. To qualify as a "superaffilate" your site must
generate a minimum of £1,500 in sales (or a minimum of £75 in commissions) in
any one month.
Our tracking systems will keep paying you commissions from customers you have
referred for 1 year after the initial referral.
For a sale to generate a commission to an Affiliate, the customer must
complete the order form and remit full payment for the service ordered. We must
process the order and mark it with a delivered status, which we do when our
systems show the items should have been delivered.
Referral fees can only be earned between the acceptance of the Affiliate
application and notice of termination. Fees will be paid by MadPools. Any returned
cheques, chargebacks, or fees from a returned order will be adjusted in the
following fee payment. If no fee payment is due a billing invoice for the amount
will be issued.
Affiliates are paid monthly by BACS or cheque subject to:
(i) a £25 minimum accrued payment (unless otherwise agreed)
(ii) commission earned is rolled over until the minimum payout limit has been
