NBR® Education (Big Money Stylist LLC) may offer you an opportunity to become an independent NBR® Affiliate (“Affiliate”), wherein you have the chance to earn additional money for NBR® Education Products, Memberships, Software, Services, Programs, and Accounts that you sell. NBR® Education reserves the sole and exclusive right to determine the amount of remuneration each Affiliate will receive in exchange for the Affiliate’s efforts. Affiliate commission is further discussed herein. See also NBR® Education’s Terms of Service, which apply to you in your role as an Affiliate unless otherwise expressly provided.
This Affiliate Agreement (“Agreement”) governs Your application for, and any subsequent participation in, NBR® Education’s Affiliate Program. By clicking the “I Accept and Agree to the Affiliate Agreement” checkbox when registering for the affiliate program and/or when completing your Payout settings, You thereby accept the terms of this Agreement; you indicate that You have read and understood this Agreement and agree that its terms bind you.
SECTION 1: PARTIES
All references to “NBR® Education” herein mean and refer to Big Money Stylist LLC, doing business as NBR® Education. All references to “You” and “Your” mean and refer to the person or entity who has executed this Agreement. NBR® Education and You are each referred to herein as a “Party,” and collectively as the “Parties.”
SECTION 2: APPLICATION
You agree to provide all information requested by NBR® Education in connection with Your Affiliate Application, and You affirm that all information that You provide is truthful and accurate. You understand and agree that NBR® Education retains sole and exclusive discretion to determine whether You qualify for participation in NBR® Education’s Affiliate program. Not everyone who applies for NBR® Education’s Affiliate program will qualify to participate.
SECTION 3: CONSENT TO BE CONTACTED
You expressly consent to be contacted at the email address and the phone number You provide in Your application about Your application and the Affiliate program, including through automated dialing systems, texts and artificial or prerecorded messages. This consent is a material condition of this Agreement and may not be revoked except in writing by both Parties.
SECTION 4: COMPENSATION
If Your application to become an Affiliate is approved by NBR® Education, You will receive a unique Affiliate ID. The Affiliate ID will be incorporated within each URL which You will use to advertise NBR® Education. You will have the opportunity to receive a commission for each sale (“Sale”) that is registered using Your Affiliate ID.
In the event that a prospect (“Prospect”) has multiple Affiliate cookies (“Cookies”), the most recently-acquired Cookie inside a window of 90 days will determine which Affiliate is credited with a Sale. At that point, the Prospect becomes a Customer who will be associated with the credited Affiliate for 180 days, as identified by the Customer’s email address. This means the credited Affiliate will continue to be credited for all future sales of qualifying products occurring inside that window of 180 days made by that Customer’s Account.
Provided that the Sale remains in good status within thirty (30) days from the Sale, meaning there are no refunds or returns of the product(s) sold, You will be paid a commission for each Sale that generates a payment to NBR® Education in a month (“Commission”).
Except as otherwise provided herein, Commission payments will be paid on the 20th of each month following NBR® Education’s receipt of payment for the Sale, subject to the other terms of this Agreement. In the event the 20th of each month falls on a holiday, Commission payments will be paid on the business day preceding the holiday. All Commission payments are based on the amount of fees received by NBR® Education, less sales taxes.
Acceptance into the NBR® Education Affiliate Program grants you access to promote select NBR® Education Offers and Earn Commissions as specified below for as long as you are compliant with the Affiliate Agreement:
From time to time, you will get the opportunity to earn Extra Commissions when you get credited for a Sale of Specific Offers. This will not add to the Commissions you are already entitled to, but it will replace that Commission Rate IF the Special Commission Rate is higher.
All Commissions and Potential Sales Bonuses are paid in U.S. Dollars (USD). Some payment methods may incur processing fees that may be deducted from Your Commissions. Your combined Commission must equal or exceed One Hundred and 00/100 Dollars ($100.00) (USD) before You receive a payment from NBR® Education. If Your combined Commissions and Potential Sales Bonuses in a 120-day period do not exceed $100.00 (USD) Your Commissions will not be paid and will be forfeited.
Once a Commission of $100 (USD) or more is earned, You will need to register with our third-party payment provider to receive payment of Commissions. This means You are authorizing third party companies to contact You. Before You can be paid any Commission or Potential Sales Bonuses, You must provide NBR® Education a completed W-8 or W-9 tax form, as instructed by NBR® Education, as well as any supporting documentation requested by NBR® Education or its third-party payment provider. You will be deemed to have permanently waived all rights to Commissions or Potential Sales Bonuses that were earned more than 120 days before submitting a completed W-8 or W-9 tax form or any ancillary supporting documentation that is requested to confirm the information on your tax form. If You are not a resident of the United States, NBR® Education may withhold tax (including without limitation VAT) where required by applicable law. You are solely responsible for complying with all tax laws in Your respective jurisdiction(s) including, but not limited to, the payment of all required taxes, and filing of all returns and other required documents with, the applicable governing body(ies).
Affiliates will not be paid any Commissions or Potential Sales Bonuses for payments made on Affiliate’s own user account(s). Affiliates are not permitted to open a NBR® Education account under the name of another person or entity, under a fictitious name, or under any name merely for the purpose of obtaining Commissions, Potential Sales Bonuses or any other compensation. Affiliates may not pay for another person’s or entity’s account. Affiliates are not permitted to offer cash rebates or other monetary incentives to obtain Sales or Potential Sales Bonuses.
Commissions and Potential Sales Bonuses are paid only for transactions that actually occur between NBR® Education and a Sale and in which payment is received by NBR® Education. If payment for a Sold Account later results in a refund or chargeback, and if a Commission or Potential Sales Bonus was paid to You for that Sold Account or Sales Bonus payment, then the Commission or Sales Bonus will be deducted from Your future Commissions and/or Potential Sales Bonuses.
If NBR® Education determines, in its sole and exclusive discretion, that any Sale or Potential Sales Bonuses was procured fraudulently or as a result of any violation of this Agreement or applicable law, no Commission or Sales Bonus will be paid for such Sale and, for past sales, such payment amounts shall be deducted from Your future Commissions and Potential Sales Bonuses, and NBR® Education may terminate this Agreement immediately without NBR® Education having any liability to You.
SECTION 5: TERM AND TERMINATION
The term of this Agreement will begin the moment (i) when You click “I Accept and Agree to the Affiliate Agreement” and submit; or (ii) Your participation in the Affiliate program is approved. Your participation in the NBR® Education Affiliate program will continue month-to-month until terminated. Either Party may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause, by giving the other Party thirty (30) days written notice of termination. If in our sole discretion, You fail, or we suspect that You have been unable to comply with any term or provision of the Agreement or the Terms of Service, or violated any law, whether in connection with Your use of NBR® Education’s Products, Softwares, Products or otherwise, we may terminate the Agreement or suspend Your access to the Affiliate website (“Website”) at any time without notice to You. In addition, if, based on our data, you have a dispute rate greater than 10%, we may terminate this Agreement or suspend your access to the Website at any time without notice to You. In such an instance, and in our sole discretion, we may also for the aforementioned reasons, terminate our relationship and suspend any accounts owned/controlled by You. For the avoidance of doubt, and without limitation for purposes of the foregoing, any violation of the required disclosure will be deemed a material breach of this Agreement. See Appendix A, Section 2, Disclosure. In the event this Agreement is canceled due to Your breach, You immediately forfeit all Commissions, Potential Sales Bonuses, and any other payments owed to You or that may in the future be owed to You without any further liability by NBR® Education to You. This Agreement will terminate automatically if You earn no (zero) Commissions over a 12 month period.
If this Agreement is terminated or canceled, then all provisions that, by their nature, should survive will survive, including, but not necessarily limited to, all limitations of liability, disclaimers of warranties, indemnity obligations, mandatory arbitration, and class action waiver provisions, and exceptions to arbitration. All representations and warranties undertaken by You shall also survive termination or cancellation of this Agreement and/or Your NBR® Education account.
SECTION 6: ADDITIONAL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES
In addition to Your other representations and warranties herein, You further represent and warrant that there are no prior or pending government investigations or inquiries of, or prosecutions against You by the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”), any other federal or state governmental agency, or any industry regulatory authority, anywhere in the world, nor any prior or pending private lawsuits against You which relate to alleged intentional torts or alleged violation of any consumer protection or advertising laws. Suppose You become the subject of such an investigation, inquiry, prosecution, or lawsuit any time after this Agreement is executed. In that case, You are required to notify NBR® Education of the same within 24 hours.
