    1. This Affiliate Agreement (hereinafter the “Agreement”) is entered into by and between CompuClever Systems Inc. (“CompuClever” or “We” or “US”) and you as an individual or the entity which you represent (“Affiliate”, “You” or “Your”).
    2. This Agreement contains the terms and conditions that apply to Your activities as a sales affiliate of the CompuClever products (the “Products”) through the establishment of one or more Referral Links (defined below). This affiliate program is administered by cleverbridge AG (the “Billing Merchant”) with whom You have already or will be required to enter into a separate agreement regulating its relationship with You (the "Billing Merchant Agreement").
    3. By ticking the box which says, “I have read and agree to this Affiliate Agreement”, You agree that You have read and understood the terms of this Agreement and any CompuClever policy referenced herein, and that You agree to comply with its terms once Your Affiliate Sign-Up Form has been accepted.

  3. Referral Links
    1. A “Referral Link” is a link that contains the specific tracking information provided to You by the Billing Merchant in connection with this Agreement that You have added to a website, email or other electronic location. The Referral Link’s tracking tool will track Your referrals which result in a purchase of any Product from the CompuClever online store hosted by the Billing Merchant following navigation of the purchaser through the Referral Link (a “Referral”).
    2. You are solely responsible for the location within which the Referral Link is placed, and You shall not place any Referral Link in any inappropriate location such as on any website or page which: promotes or contains sexually explicit or defamatory materials; promotes violence or contains violent materials; promotes discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age; promotes or undertakes illegal activities; includes any trade mark of CompuClever, or a variant or misspelling of the same, in any domain name e.g. "compuclever.com"; otherwise violates intellectual property; or otherwise violates any CompuClever policies and guidelines . Furthermore, You may not place any Referral Links in newsgroups, message boards, unsolicited email or in any other location or manner which may (intentionally or unintentionally) mislead any customer or potential customer. Where the Referral Link is placed in such a way that the material connection You have with CompuClever is not reasonably expected by the customer, You must ensure disclosure of Your material arrangement with CompuClever. You must keep CompuClever informed of the primary domains where You place any Referral Link.

  4. Referral Fees
    1.

"Charge-Backs" mean the return of funds to a customer's bank account, line of credit, or credit card, forcibly initiated by the issuing bank (e.g. following a dispute).
