You must not, in the use of the service, violate any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws).
-You may not use ASO Services Affiliate Program to earn money on your own.
-To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and referral fee accrual, we will provide you with special link formats to be used in all links between your site and the ASO Services.
You must ensure that each of the links between your site and the ASO Services properly utilizes such special link formats.
-You will earn referral fees only with respect to sales on a ASO Services product occurring directly through Special Links; we will not be liable to you with respect to any failure by you or someone you refer to use Special Links or incorrectly type your affiliate code, including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction of amounts that would otherwise be paid to you pursuant to this Agreement. Affiliate links should point to the page of the product being promoted.
Referral fees/commissions and payment
Let’s say Affiliate A refers a new affiliate, Affiliate B. Affiliate A would be the parent-affiliate of Affiliate B. Commission levels are set to Level 1 = 10%, Level 2 = 5%. Now when a sale is made through Affiliate A, Affiliate A get’s 10% of the sale and Affiliate B gets nothing. When a sale is made through Affiliate B, Affiliate B gets 10% and Affiliate A gets 5%.
For a product sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must click-through a Special Link from your site, email, or other communications to http://appstoreoptimizationservices.com and complete an order for a product during that session. The session ends once someone closes their web browser, navigates away from the http://appstoreoptimizationservices.com, or otherwise leaves http://appstoreoptimizationservices.com without ordering a product before leaving the site. If they leave the site, come back later on their own, and then purchase a product, you will not earn a commission.
We will only pay commissions on links that are automatically tracked and reported by our systems. We will not pay commissions if someone says they purchased or someone says they entered a referral code if it was not tracked by our system. We can only pay commissions on business generated through properly formatted special links that were automatically tracked by our systems.
We reserve the right to disqualify commissions earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods.
Payments only begin once you’ve earned more than $20 in affiliate income. If your affiliate account never crosses the $20 threshold, your commissions will not be realized or paid. We are only responsible for paying accounts that have crossed the $20 threshold.
Identifying yourself as a ASO Services Affiliate
You may not in any manner misrepresent or embellish the relationship between us and you, say you develop our products or say you are part of ASO Services.
You may not purchase products through your affiliate links for your own use. Such purchases may result (in our sole discretion) in the withholding of referral fees and/or the termination of this Agreement.
As long as your current affiliate earning are over $20, you’ll be paid each month. If you haven’t earned $20 since your last payment, we’ll pay you the following month after you’ve crossed the threshold.
Customers who buy products through this Program will be deemed to be our customers. Accordingly, all of our rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service, and product sales will apply to those customers. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. For example, we will determine the prices to be charged for products sold under this Program in accordance with our own pricing policies. Product prices and availability may vary from time to time. Because price changes may affect products that you have listed on your site, you should not display product prices on your site.
