a. Referral fees will be paid to the applicant based on a percentage of sales made to users who access NOTIQ's site through the applicant's site. Referral fees will be calculated based on the sales price, excluding any shipping and handling, sales tax, special service fees such as gift wrapping or packaging, late charges, collection costs, imports/export duties, and any other payment made to NOTIQ that is not the purchase price for the merchandise. Referral fees will not be calculated based on amounts that are attributable to credit card fraud, credits given to customers, bad debt write-offs, and returned goods. NOTIQ reserves the right to deduct any referral fee paid to the affiliate for merchandise that is subsequently returned or refunded or for any other reason if the previous monthly referral fee was overpaid or later subject to reduction.

b. This Agreement currently sets forth the percentages to be paid as referral fees. NOTIQ reserves the right to change and amend the referral fee rate structure at any time, with a calendar fifteen-day advance notice, in NOTIQ's sole discretion.

c. Referral fees will be payable only on sales that are tracked through NOTIQ's online tracking system that indicates the applicant's website's link as the source, which sale occurred within 30 calendar days of the most recent visit to NOTIQ's site through the applicant's website. There is no right to a referral fee if (i) a user makes a purchase outside of such 30-day period or (ii) a user later returns to NOTIQ's site through another link or source other than through the applicant's website and makes a purchase. All sales made within 30 calendar days of the most recent visit to NOTIQ's site through the applicant's website will (i) be tracked in NOTIQ's online tracking system provided by an independent third-party app and (ii) count towards referral fee calculations.

d. NOTIQ will pay a referral fee only upon collection by NOTIQ. The applicant has the right to referral fees once the applicable customer has paid NOTIQ in full. Currently, only purchases made through NOTIQ's online shop process for non-subscription products will count toward referral fee calculations.

e. Referral commissions will be paid once a month, after the 15th of the following month, if your commission balance exceeds a $25 threshold. If your commission balance in a given month does not meet the $25 threshold, your account balance will be carried forward to the next month. Please note that due to holidays, weather events, or office closures, we cannot guarantee an exact date of referral fee calculation or payment. However, we will make sure that payment is made after the 15th of the following month. All payments will be made via PayPal payments for goods and services to the PayPal email address that you provide on the application. To comply with IRS regulations, PayPal will also provide any relevant end-of-year tax forms.

f.  If the applicant discovers a potential error in the calculation of referral commissions or payments, applicant may contact NOTIQ for clarification or resolution. NOTIQ will work with the applicant to provide a prompt resolution or clarification to applicant's concerns.

 

10: CUSTOMERS' PROVENANCE

All parties who make purchases through NOTIQ's website, regardless of whether they may have reached NOTIQ's website through the link from the applicant's website, are deemed to be NOTIQ's customers and not the applicant's customers relative to NOTIQ's merchandise and services. NOTIQ will have the right to contact these customers and send future marketing offers to them. The applicant will have no right to referral fees on subsequent purchases that may be made by these customers, except for subsequent purchases that may be traced at the time of purchase through a link from the applicant's website. Additionally, all such customers and purchases will be subject to NOTIQ's policies, procedures, rules and regulations, and the applicant has no right or authority to amend or offer any different offers relative to the purchase of merchandise from NOTIQ's website. NOTIQ, however, reserves the right to amend any of its terms, conditions, policies, procedures, pricing, payment policies, collection policies, and all other items relative to NOTIQ's business and sale of merchandise at any time in its sole discretion.

 

11: TRADEMARKS AND COPYRIGHTS

a. The applicant will have a non-exclusive, limited-term license to use the trademarks, logos, and copyrighted material that NOTIQ provided to the applicant for use solely on the applicant's website and any owned social media accounts, email programs, and other marketing campaigns associated with said website or websites that the applicant indicates on the application. The applicant may only use the images that NOTIQ makes explicitly available to Affiliate Program members in the area of NOTIQ's website or affiliate portal that are specifically designated as approved images. The applicant may not distribute, reproduce, modify, or amend these images in any way. The applicant may use these images only to promote NOTIQ's website and merchandise on the applicant's website or social media profiles in compliance with the Affiliate Program policies and procedures and the terms of this Agreement. The license so granted is subject to complete compliance with all terms and conditions of this Agreement and any policies NOTIQ may create and amend from time to time regarding the Affiliate Program.

14: TERMINATION

If this Agreement is terminated as a result of the applicant's failure to comply with the terms of this Agreement or any policies and procedures of the Affiliate Program that may be established and amended by NOTIQ in its discretion from time to time, the applicant will forfeit all right to receive past referral fees that may have accrued to the applicant. If this Agreement is terminated for any other reason, the applicant will have the right to receive their accumulated referral fees through the effective date of termination. NOTIQ has the right to withhold final referral fee payments for sufficient time to ensure that the amount paid to the applicant is accurate and not subject to later adjustment for returns or any other reason. If following final payment, NOTIQ determines that the amount of referral fees paid to the applicant was in excess of referral fees payable and due to the applicant, as a result of subsequent returns or any other adjustment or reason, the differential shall be a debt from the applicant to NOTIQ. NOTIQ shall have the legal right to receive a refund for such overpaid referral fees from the applicant.

 

15: MODIFICATIONS

NOTIQ reserves the right, at its sole and absolute discretion, to modify any terms and conditions of the Affiliate Program and the terms and conditions of this Agreement upon notice to the applicant. Notice of any changes may be given via email to the applicant or by posting such changes in the Affiliate Program sections of NOTIQ's website. Such changes and modifications will take effect upon transmission of email or posting on NOTIQ's website or affiliate portal.
