terms of service - Raw Food World

By filling out the signup form you acknowledge that you have read the terms and conditions below for The Raw Food World AFFILIATE Program, understand, and agree with them.

Coupon based websites that attempt to give coupons to our customers are not permitted.

1. Joining the Program

By filling out the signup form you will automatically become an AFFILIATE and are bound by the terms of this agreement. Your participation in the program is solely for this purpose: to legally advertise our website to receive a commission on products purchased by your referral individuals.

2. Payment Schedule

  1. a. Eligible payments - all AFFILIATE monies due for orders generated as a result of AFFILIATE links/Web Site will be held for 30 days after the Shipping Date of an order. Orders are typically shipped 1-7 days after an order is placed. This allows us ample time to compensate for returns, exchanges or canceled orders. Payments will be calculated and checks sent out to AFFILIATE during the last week of any given month according to the terms and conditions of this document.
  2. b. AFFILIATE Payments - payment to AFFILIATE will not be rendered for amounts less than $50.00 USD unless requested by AFFILIATE. When your account total reaches $50.00 or more you will be sent a check provided all orders associated meet the conditions set forth in (a) above.
  3. c. Store Credit can be issued upon request in lieu of payment by check to AFFILIATE.

3. Revocation of AFFILIATE Status

Your AFFILIATE application and status in the program may be suspended or terminated for any of the following reasons:

  • Inappropriate advertisements (False claims, misleading hyperlinks)
  • Spamming (mass email, mass newsgroup posting, etc...)
  • Advertising on sites containing/promoting illegal activities
  • Violation of intellectual property rights.

    4. AFFILIATE Links
  • You may use graphic and text links both on your Web Site and in emails. The site may also be advertised "offline" in classified ads, magazines, and newspapers. You may use the graphics and text provided to you by us, or you may create your own as long as they are approved by us first.

    5. AFFILIATE Tracking

    When a web surfer clicks through your AFFILIATE link, a cookie is set in their browser that contains your AFFILIATE username. Also, their IP address is tracked in the database along with your AFFILIATE name. When this person decides to buy a product, the script will look for this cookie and/or try to match their IP address to identify the AFFILIATE who will be awarded the commission. Visitors sent through your AFFILIATE link may make a purchase later in time and the commission will still be awarded if the cookie is present in their browser and/or they are using the same IP address as the one logged in the database.

    6. Terms of the agreement

    These terms will begin upon your signup with the AFFILIATE program and will end when your AFFILIATE account is terminated. The terms of this agreement may be modified by us at any time. If any modification to the terms is unacceptable to you, your only choice is to terminate your AFFILIATE account. Your continuing participation in the program will constitute your acceptance of any change.

    7. Liability

    We will not be liable for indirect or accidental damages (loss of revenue, commissions) due to AFFILIATE tracking failures, loss of database files, and any results of "intents of harm" to the program or our website. We do not make any expressed or implied warranties with respect to the AFFILIATE program and/or products sold at this site. We make no claim that the operation of the AFFILIATE program and our website will be error-free and we will not be liable for any interruptions or errors.

    Affiliate further agrees and warrants that it will comply with all local, state and federal laws (including, but not limited to, the "CAN-SPAM" Act, effective January 1, 2004) regarding the sending of e-mails.

    AFFILIATE shall indemnify and hold The Raw Food World harmless from any and all legal actions, damages or liabilities incurred from the day-to-day operations of AFFILIATE. Under no circumstances will The Raw Food World be liable whether in tort, contract or otherwise for indirect, incidental, consequential, special or exemplary damages (including but not limited to damages for any loss of revenue, profits, business interruption, loss of business information or data, loss of goodwill, work stoppage, hardware or software failure, or other pecuniary loss) arising from or relating to any provision of this Agreement or the program. Without limiting the foregoing, The Raw Food World aggregate liability arising with respect to this Agreement will not exceed the total fees paid or payable to AFFILIATE under this agreement.

    The Raw Food World will own all right, title and interest in and to all information that is created or collected in the operation of The Raw Food World Web site and reserves the right to amend or terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without notice to AFFILIATE.

    The laws of the State of California shall govern this Agreement. Should there be any legal dispute between the parties, then both parties agree to take the matter before arbitration/mediation in Placer County, CA should The Raw Food World request arbitration/mediation in lieu of formal legal process. Both parties mutually agree that the sole legal venue for all disputes shall be in the Placer County General District Court, CA.

    8. Commission Rate

    5% of the entire order (before shipping costs and after coupon deductions) gets credited to your affiliate account. When your credit reaches $50, you will be issued a check.

    9. Commission Process

    Once you have an affiliate account, you have access to a back administration area specifically for your account. The marketing tools in the back admin area teach you how to create a link on YOUR website/blog/email to connect a customer to OUR website. Any customer who enters OUR store from YOUR link is automatically registered as your customer through the "cookie" system on their computer. This means that even if they leave our website and return, they are still registered as your customer and you will receive commission for their purchase. This cookie system lasts 24 hours... after that, they would have to once again enter from YOUR link to OUR website for you to earn commission on their purchase.

    If you receive an affiliate commission where a coupon code has also been used for a discount on the order, we reserve the right to adjust your affiliate commission on that order.

    No affiliate of 'The Raw Food World' is permitted to advertise using the following key word terms on any CPC site or any other advertising channels:
    - The Raw Food World
