This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to you becoming an affiliate in Social Rocket’s Affiliate Program. The purpose of this Agreement is to allow HTML linking between your web site and the Social Rocket web site. Please note that throughout this Agreement, “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to Social Rocket, and “you,” “your,” and “yours” refer to the affiliate.
2.1. All Social Rocket customers are enrolled in our Affiliate Program at the time of purchase. The fact that we auto-approve applications does not imply that we may not reevaluate your application at a later time. We may reject your application at our sole discretion. We may cancel your application if we determine that your site is unsuitable for our Program, including if it:
2.1.1. Promotes sexually explicit materials
2.1.2. Promotes violence
2.1.3. Promotes discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age
2.1.4. Promotes illegal activities
2.1.5. Incorporates any materials which infringe or assist others to infringe on any copyright, trademark or other intellectual property rights or to violate the law
2.1.6. Includes “Social Rocket” or variations or misspellings thereof in its domain name
2.1.7. Is otherwise in any way unlawful, harmful, threatening, defamatory, obscene, harassing, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable to us in our sole discretion.
2.1.8. Contains software downloads that potentially enable diversions of commission from other affiliates in our program.
2.1.9. You may not create or design your website or any other website that you operate, explicitly or implied in a manner which resembles our website nor design your website in a manner which leads customers to believe you are Social Rocket or any other affiliated business.
2.2. As a member of Social Rocket’s Affiliate Program, you will have access to an Affiliate Area within your account. Here you will be able to review our Program’s banner creatives and obtain personalized tracking codes. In order for us to accurately keep track of all guest visits from your site to ours, you must use the HTML code that we provide for each banner, text link, or other affiliate link we provide you with.
2.3. Social Rocket reserves the right, at any time, to review your placement and approve the use of your links and require that you change the placement or use to comply with the guidelines provided to you.
2.4. The maintenance and the updating of your site will be your responsibility. We may monitor your site as we feel necessary to make sure that it is up-to-date and to notify you of any changes that we feel should enhance your performance.
2.5. It is entirely your responsibility to follow all applicable intellectual property and other laws that pertain to your site. You must have express permission to use any person’s copyrighted material, whether it be a writing, an image, or any other copyrightable work. We will not be responsible (and you will be solely responsible) if you use another person’s copyrighted material or other intellectual property in violation of the law or any third party rights.
3.1. We have the right to monitor your site at any time to determine if you are following the terms and conditions of this Agreement. We may notify you of any changes to your site that we feel should be made, or to make sure that your links to our website are appropriate and to notify further you of any changes that we feel should be made. If you do not make the changes to your site that we feel are necessary, we reserve the right to terminate your participation in the Social Rocket Affiliate Program.
3.2. Social Rocket reserves the right to terminate this Agreement and your participation in the Social Rocket Affiliate Program immediately and without notice to you should you commit fraud in your use of the Social Rocket Affiliate Program or should you abuse this program in any way. If such fraud or abuse is detected, Social Rocket shall not be liable to you for any commissions for such fraudulent sales.
3.3. This Agreement will begin upon our acceptance of your Affiliate application, and will continue unless terminated hereunder.
Either you or we may end this Agreement AT ANY TIME, with or without cause, by giving the other party written notice. Written notice can be in the form of mail, email or fax. In addition, this Agreement will terminate immediately upon any breach of this Agreement by you.
Social Rocket pays affiliate commissions during the first week of every month, as long as your balance is $50 or higher. Balances below $50 will carry over to the next month.
Payouts are sent via PayPal. Affiliates are responsible for keeping payout email addresses up to date. Social Rocket will not be held liable for lost or unclaimed payouts.
6.1. You are free to promote your own web sites, but naturally any promotion that mentions Social Rocket could be perceived by the public or the press as a joint effort. You should know that certain forms of advertising are always prohibited by Social Rocket. For example, advertising commonly referred to as “spamming” is unacceptable to us and could cause damage to our name. Other generally prohibited forms of advertising include the use of unsolicited commercial email (UCE), postings to non-commercial newsgroups and cross-posting to multiple newsgroups at once. In addition, you may not advertise in any way that effectively conceals or misrepresents your identity, your domain name, or your return email address. You may use mailings to customers to promote Social Rocket so long as the recipient is already a customer or subscriber of your services or website, and recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings. Also, you may post to newsgroups to promote Social Rocket so long as the news group specifically welcomes commercial messages. At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your web sites as independent from Social Rocket. If it comes to our attention that you are spamming, we will consider that cause for immediate termination of this Agreement and your participation in the Social Rocket Affiliate Program. Any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.
6.2. Affiliates that among other keywords or exclusively bid in their Pay-Per-Click campaigns on keywords such as wpsocialrocket.com, social rocket, socialrocket, wpsocialrocket.com, and/or any misspellings or similar alterations of these – be it separately or in combination with other keywords – and do not direct the traffic from such campaigns to their own website prior to redirecting it to ours, will be considered trademark violators, and will be banned from Social Rocket’s Affiliate Program. We will do everything possible to contact the affiliate prior to the ban. However, we reserve the right to expel any trademark violator from our affiliate program without prior notice, and on the first occurrence of such PPC bidding behavior.
