1. Affiliate Agreement
These Terms and Conditions (the “Affiliate Agreement” or “Agreement”) govern participation in the CuttingFluid.online Affiliate Program (the “Affiliate Program” or the “Program”) that is made available by CFO Distributors (“CuttingFluid.online”, “we” or “us”). These Terms and Conditions represent the whole agreement and understanding between CuttingFluid.online and the individual or entity who participates in the Program (the “Affiliate” or “you”).
CuttingFluid.online may modify the Affiliate Agreement at any time and at our sole discretion. These modifications may include, but not be limited to changes in the scope of available referral fees, fee schedules, payment procedures and Affiliate Program rules. If any of the modifications are UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU, your only recourse is to terminate this Agreement. If you CONTINUE PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM, it will be considered as your acceptance of the change.
To enroll in the Affiliate Program you must fill out an application and be approved. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance status as soon as possible after the application is reviewed.
4. Affiliate Links and Referral Tracking
Once your Affiliate Program application has been approved, you will be able to access your unique referral link(s) by logging into the affiliate area. CuttingFluid.online will track users who have visited the site using these referral links using cookies which expire after 30 days. Only referred users who make a purchase while the cookie is active will be credited with the referral for the sale.
CuttingFluid.online is not responsible for any missed referrals that may result from the Affiliate’s modification of the referral link(s) or the cookies.
Affiliates will receive 10% of the revenue of qualified sales as a commission from referrals through properly coded Affiliate links. Commissions will not be given on taxes or shipping charges. The commission rate may change at any time at the discretion of the product publisher. Commissions are calculated in Canadian dollars as that is the currency that orders are charged in.
CuttingFluid.online pays Affiliates through Sandhills Development’s Payouts Service. Information required to facilitate payment needs to be entered in the affiliate area. If this information is not filled out, payment cannot be made. Please ensure that all payment information is entered accurately. CuttingFluid.online cannot resend payments returned due to incorrect payment information.
Qualified commissions will become eligible for payout at the end of the next calendar month after the sale takes place. CA$50 is the minimum amount that Affiliates need to have accumulated in order to be paid. If the balance owing is less than $50, it will carry over to the next month. Balances will continue to carry forward until they meet the minimum payout balance.
