Enrollment

I understand and agree that…

In order to enroll in the Rootsy Affiliate Program I must submit an application and be approved.

Applications are processed every Friday and I will be notified of the acceptance status as soon as possible after the information is reviewed.

Upon acceptance I must submit a completed W-9 before any commissions will be paid.

 

Qualifying Sites

Rootsy reserves the right to refuse any site entry into the Rootsy Affiliate Program based on site content. Sites that do not qualify for the Rootsy Affiliate Program include sites which:

  • Promote sexually explicit material
  • Promote violence
  • Promote illegal activities
  • Infringe or otherwise violate any copyright, trademark or other intellectual property right of Rootsy or any other site or author.

 

Compensation

I understand and agree that…

  • I will receive 20% commission for each membership sold using the affiliate code made available to me by the Organizers. This includes promotion on my website(s), blog(s), social media site(s), email list(s) and any other internet and/or marketing properties that I own or have access to.
  • As an affiliate, I will receive free access to the homesteading library.
  • I will gain one month of access to the complete membership site for every 5 sales made during a one month time period.
  • I will receive no additional compensation, other than that explicitly stated above.
  • Tracking cookies expire in 30 days.
  • I am ultimately responsible for verifying that I use the correct affiliate codes provided to me by the organizers when promoting rootsty.org. My compensation is explicitly and exclusively tied to my affiliate code, and I will only be compensated for sales made through that affiliate code.
  • I will receive my earnings within 11 days of the end of the second calendar month when the sales were made. For example, all sales made within January are payable by March 11th at the latest. This allows time for all e-checks to clear, and for the majority of credit card chargebacks and refunds to be processed. All payments will be sent to the Paypal account that I have provided to the organizers.
  • I am entitled to purchase any number of rootsy.org memberships through my own affiliate links, as gifts, blog giveaways, or for any other reason. My final payment will include the commissions from these sales at the same rate as any other sale.

 

Taxes

I understand and agree that…

  • The Organizers will not take deductions of any kind off of my earnings for this sale (i.e. income tax, insurance, pension, etc.).
  • It is my sole responsibility to track any income that I make during the year, including from rootsy.org, and claim it in compliance with the tax laws in my country of citizenship and/or residence.
  • Rootsy, LLC will require a W-9 prior to my payment as an affiliate. Rootsy, LLC will issue 1099s as appropriate.

 

Distribution, Duration, and Customer Service

I understand and agree that…

  • Rootsy will be solely responsible for processing every order placed by a customer via affiliate links.
  • Affiliates are not authorized to collect payments or sell any Rootsy products or memberships from other websites as a “reseller” and no “resale” rights are granted in ANY way.
  • Affiliates are not authorized to give away any Rootsy products or memberships without first purchasing that product or membership for the purpose of giving it to one person.
  • Rootsy customer service can be contacted at customer.care@rootsy.org

 

Sales Statistics

I understand and agree that…

  • I will have constant access to my sales statistics through an affiliate dashboard. Sales made through my affiliate code may take up to 24 hours to show up, but are usually instantaneous. I can review these at any time by logging into the affiliate system.
  • Although I am welcome to share my sales numbers with other Contributors, and they are welcome to share theirs with me, I understand that I will not be provided with the total sales stats for rootsy.org.

  • Affiliates are permitted to use the graphical banners and design resources located at http://rootsy.org/affiliates/ .
  • If a specific size banner ad is not available, the affiliate may contact the Rooty Affiliate Program manager at affiliates@rootsy.org and request a new banner graphic be added to the available resources.
