This agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to an individual’s or entity’s participation in the Ninja Blog Setup Affiliate Program (the “Program”). As used in this Agreement, “we” means NinjaBlogSetup.com, and “you” means the applicant. “Site” means a World Wide Web site and, depending on the context, refers either to Ninja Blog Setup located at the URL www.ninjablogsetup.com, or to the site that you will link to our site (and which you will identify in your Program application).
1. Enrollment in the Program
To begin the enrollment process, you will submit a complete Program application via our site. We will evaluate your application in good faith and will notify you of your acceptance or rejection. We may reject your application if we determine (at our sole discretion) that your site is unsuitable for the Program. Unsuitable sites include, but shall not be limited to, those that:
- Promote violence;
- Promote pornography and sexual content;
- Promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age;
- Promote illegal activities;
- Attempt to copy and/or assume the creative or business identity of Ninja Blog Setup in any manner; and/or,
- Otherwise violate intellectual property rights.
- Utilize parasite software Spam
If we reject your application, you are welcome to reapply to the Program at any time. You should also note that if we accept your application and your site is thereafter determined (at our sole discretion) to be unsuitable for the Program, we may terminate this Agreement at any time.
2. Links on Your Site
Once you have been notified that your site has been accepted into the Program, you may provide on your site one or more of the various links to our site that will be made available to you through our Affiliate Web Site. NinjaBlogSetup.com will occasionally change the appearance and type of links made available to Affiliates. NinjaBlogSetup.com may change the appearance of these links and may make changes to their appearance at any time without your prior consent or notification.
To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and referral fee accrual, we will provide you with special “tagged” link formats to be used in all links between your site and our site. You must ensure that each of the links between your site and our site properly utilizes such special link formats. Links to our site placed on your site pursuant to this Agreement and which properly utilize such special link formats are referred to as “special links.” You will only earn referral fees with respect to activity on our site occurring directly through these special links. We will not be liable to you with respect to any failure by you to use special links, including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction of amounts that would otherwise be paid to you pursuant to this Agreement.
3. Order Processing
We will process product orders placed by customers who follow special links from your site to our site. We reserve the right to reject orders that do not comply with any requirements that we periodically may establish. We will be responsible for all aspects of order processing and fulfillment. Among other things, we will prepare order forms; process payments, cancellations, and returns; and handle customer service. We will track sales made by customers who purchase products using special links from your site to our site and will make available to you reports summarizing this sales activity. The form, content, and frequency of the reports may vary from time to time at our discretion.
4. Referral Fees
We will pay you (in accordance with Sections 5 and 6 below) referral fees on certain sales to third parties. For a sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must follow a special link from your site to our site, select and purchase the product or service using our online shopping cart system and remit payment to us. Referral fees are not paid on technical support requests. Affiliates are not eligible for commissions on their own purchases.
The affiliate referral cookie expires after thirty (30) days. This means that a customer that you refer to us has up to 30 days to make a purchase and you will still be eligible for the commission.
5. Referral Fee Schedule
You will earn referral fees based on qualifying revenues according to referral fee schedules to be established by us. “Qualifying revenues” are revenues derived by us from sales of certain NinjaBlogSetup.com services. The current referral fee schedule is:
The Base Commission rate on NinjaBlogSetup.com will be equal to twenty percent (20%) of Net Sales for Qualifying Revenues. The commission on Free Blog Installations will be a flat twenty dollars ($20) and will only be paid after Ninja Blog Setup is paid its referral fee from the hosting company.
6. Referral Fee Payment
If your earned commission has reached US$100 or more, we will send your payment by the 15th of the following month. If your commission balance is less than US$100, your commission will be rolled over into the next month’s earnings. We will send you a PayPal payment for the referral fees earned on your sales of NinjaBlogSetup.com products and services that were purchased during that month, less any taxes that we are required by law to withhold. The parties agree the referral fees include all applicable tax(es) chargeable, including Goods and Service Taxes. You will remit the tax(es) as required by law.
7. Reports of Sales
You will be given the ability to enter a password-protected site to receive your sales statistics on a daily basis.
8. Policies and Pricing
Customers who buy products or services through this Program will be deemed to be customers of NinjaBlogSetup.com. Accordingly, all NinjaBlogSetup.com rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service, and product sales will apply to those customers. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. For example, we will determine the prices to be charged for products sold under this Program in accordance with our own pricing policies. Product/Service prices and availability may vary from time to time.
It is further the policy of NinjaBlogSetup.com that marketing of any of its products by way of “SPAM” e-mail is prohibited. Any and all affiliates (and prospective affiliates) who participate in the use of “SPAM” e-mailing for anything pertaining to the business of selling orchids will be disqualified from our affiliate program without notice. NinjaBlogSetup.com will not accept responsibility for any “SPAM” e-mails sent by an affiliate pertaining to NinjaBlogSetup.com. SPAM, for the purposes of this agreement is defined as the sending of unsolicited e-mail on the internet. From the sender’s point of view, it is a form of bulk mail, often to a list culled from subscribers to a usenet discussion group or obtained by companies that specialize in creating e-mail distribution lists. Some apparently unsolicited e-mail is, in fact, e-mail people have agreed to receive when they register with a site and check a box agreeing to receive postings about particular products or interests. This is known as both opt-in e-mail and permission based e-mail.
We grant you a right to use the graphic image and text provided for Affiliates on the Affiliates Web Site and such other images for which we grant express permission, solely for the purpose of identifying your site as a Program participant and to assist in generating product sales. You may modify the graphic image or text, or any other of our images, with prior approval from us.

Either you or we may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause, by giving the other party written notice of termination via email.

We may withhold your final payment for a reasonable time to ensure that the correct amount is paid.
