The following are the terms and conditions of participating in the Jouer Cosmetics Affiliate Program (the “Affiliate Program”). Please read this Affiliate Agreement (“Agreement”) carefully before registering and using the Affiliate Program. By signing up for the Affiliate Program, you indicate your acceptance of this Agreement and that you have read, understand, acknowledge and agree to be bound by its terms and conditions.
This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to you becoming an affiliate in the Affiliate Program. The purpose of this Agreement is to allow HTML linking between your web site and the jouercosmetics.com web site. Please note that throughout this Agreement, “Jouer Cosmetics,” "we," "us," and "our" refer to Jouer Cosmetics, and “Affiliate,” "you," "your," and "yours" refer to the Affiliate.
To begin the enrollment process, you will complete and submit the online application at the refersion.com server. We may reject your application at our sole discretion. We may cancel your application if we determine that your site is unsuitable for our Affiliate Program for any reason, including if it:
Promotes sexually explicit materials;
Promotes discrimination in any way, including based on race, sex, religion, nationality, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation, or age;
Promotes illegal activities;
Incorporates any materials which may infringe or may assist others to infringe on any copyright, trademark or other intellectual property rights or to violate the law;
Includes "Merchant" or variations or misspellings thereof in its domain name;
Could otherwise in any way be perceived as unlawful, harmful, threatening, defamatory, obscene, harassing, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable to us in our sole discretion.
Contains software downloads that potentially enable diversions of commission from other affiliates in our program; or
resembles our website in a manner which leads customers to believe you are JouerCosmetics.com or any other affiliated business.
As a member of the Affiliate Program, you will have access to the Affiliate Account Manager. Here you will be able to review our Affiliate Program’s details, download HTML code (that provides for links to web pages within the jouercosmetics.com web site) and banner creatives, browse and get tracking codes for our coupons and deals. 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.
Jouer Cosmetics 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.
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.
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 third party’s copyrighted material or other intellectual property in violation of the law or any third party rights.
An affiliate who receives commissions is not required to repay those draws if the commission does not become finally due and payable to the affiliate.
Affiliate further agrees and warrants that it will comply with all local, state and federal laws (including, but not limited to, the "CAN-SPAM" Act, effective January 1, 2004) regarding the sending of e-mails.
a. You will be sent an “Affiliate Link” which allows us to identify commissions originating from you. To receive commissions, you must use the provided Affiliate Link. You are solely responsible for insuring that your Affiliate Link is setup properly to qualify for commissions.
b. Links: When a web surfer clicks through your Affiliate link, a cookie is set in their browser that contains your Affiliate username. Also, their IP address is tracked in the database along with your Affiliate name. When this person decides to buy a product, the script will look for this cookie and/or try to match their IP address to identify the Affiliate who will be awarded the commission. Visitors sent through your Affiliate link may make a purchase within 30 days and the commission will still be awarded if the cookie is present in their browser and/or the using the same IP address as the one logged in the database.
c. Coupon Code: When a consumer uses a certain coupon code that has been generated for the Affiliate by Jouer Cosmetics that code usage is tracked and added to the Affiliate sales so as to include promoted sales brought in from other locations that are not able to embed traditional tracking links. If it occurs that a coupon code is used and a link cookie is present, the AFFILIATE link governs earning the commission.
Jouer Cosmetics Rights and Obligations
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 web site 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 Affiliate Program.
Jouer Cosmetics reserves the right to terminate this Agreement and your participation in the Affiliate Program immediately and without notice to you should you commit fraud in your use of the Affiliate Program or should you abuse the Affiliate Program in any way. If such fraud or abuse is detected, Jouer Cosmetics shall not be liable to you for any commissions for such fraudulent sales.
This Agreement will begin upon our acceptance of your Affiliate application and submission of W9 and will continue unless terminated hereunder.
Either you or we may end this Agreement AT ANY TIME, with or without cause. In addition, this Agreement will terminate immediately upon any breach of this Agreement by you. In the event of termination of this Agreement, Jouer Cosmetics shall have no further obligations to you.
We may modify any of the terms and conditions in this Agreement at any time at our sole discretion. Modifications may include, but are not limited to, changes in the payment procedures and Affiliate Program rules. If any modification is unacceptable to you, your only option is to end this Agreement. Your continued participation in the Affiliate Program following the posting of the change notice or new Agreement on our site will indicate your agreement to the changes.
Jouer Cosmetics uses a third party to handle all of the tracking and payment in connection with the Affiliate Program. The third party is the refersion.com affiliate network. Kindly review the network’s payment terms and conditions.
Affiliate monies due for orders generated as a result of Affiliate links or coupon code use will be held for 30 days after the shipping date of an order. This delay is necessary to allow Jouer Cosmetics ample time to compensate for returns, exchanges or canceled orders. Payments will be calculated and sent out to Affiliate on approximately the 15th of the month for the previous month according to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, provided that we reserve the right to modify the payment schedule so long as Jouer Cosmetics provides public notice of any modifications to the affiliates.
Payments to Affiliate will be rendered through PayPal and affiliate must provide an active PayPal account email upon registration into the Jouer Cosmetics Affiliate Program.
Access to Affiliate Account Interface
You will create a password so that you may enter refersion's secure affiliate account interface. From their site you will be able to receive your reports that will describe our calculation of the commissions due to you.
You are free to promote your own web sites, but naturally any promotion that mentions Jouer Cosmetics 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 Jouer Cosmetics. 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 Jouer Cosmetics so long as the recipient is already a customer or subscriber of your services or web site, and recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings. Also, you may post to newsgroups to promote Jouer Cosmetics 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 Jouer Cosmetics. 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 Affiliate Program. Any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.
Affiliates that among other keywords or exclusively bid in their Pay-Per-Click campaigns on keywords such as Jouer Cosmetics, jouercosmetics.com, wwww.jouercosmetics.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 re-directing it to ours, will be considered trademark violators, and will be banned from Affiliate Program. 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.
Affiliates are not prohibited from keying in prospect’s information into the lead form as long as the prospects’ information is real and true, and these are valid leads (i.e. sincerely interested in Jouer Cosmetics products).
Affiliate shall not transmit any so-called “interstitials,” “Parasiteware™,” “Parasitic Marketing,” “Shopping Assistance Application,” “Toolbar Installations and/or Add-ons,” “Shopping Wallets” or “deceptive pop-ups and/or pop-unders” to consumers from the time the consumer clicks on a qualifying link until such time as the consumer has fully exited JouerCosmetics.com.com site (i.e., no page from our site or any jouercosmetics.com’s content or branding is visible on the end-user’s screen). As used herein a. “Parasiteware™” and “Parasitic Marketing” shall mean an application that (a) through accidental or direct intent causes the overwriting of affiliate and non affiliate commission tracking cookies through any other means than a customer initiated click on a qualifying link on a web page or email; (b) intercepts searches to redirect traffic through an installed software, thereby causing, pop ups, commission tracking cookies to be put in place or other commission tracking cookies to be overwritten where a user would under normal circumstances have arrived at the same destination through the results given by the search (search engines being, but not limited to, Google, MSN, Yahoo, Overture, AltaVista, Hotbot and similar search or directory engines); (c) set commission tracking cookies through loading of jouercosmetics.com site in IFrames, hidden links and automatic pop ups that open jouercosmetics.com’s site; (d) targets text on web sites, other than those web sites 100% owned by the application owner, for the purpose of contextual marketing; (e) removes, replaces or blocks the visibility of Affiliate banners with any other banners, other than those that are on web sites 100% owned by the owner of the application.
