Affiliate Agreements

The second essential clause is the “payment/compensation/commission structure”. This is the cornerstone not only of affiliation agreements, but of any agreement as a whole. The terms of payment of the agreement are usually defined in percentages that must be paid within a set period. An affiliate agreement is about the terms of use between an advertiser and an affiliate (usually a publisher or website) that monitor and define the affiliate relationship. The affiliate agreement defines the responsibilities of each party as well as the payment or commissions which generally depend on the number of people who click on the advertiser`s link on the Affiliate`s website. Another term for the affiliate agreement is the affiliate program agreement. New media forms have also diversified the way businesses, brands and ad networks serve ads to visitors.

(d) Intellectual Property Rights – Simply put, this clause gives the Affiliate a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use/access/market the other party`s product. These rights exist as long as the contract is valid. If it is established that the Affiliate can modify, modify or manipulate the intellectual property in question, it may be held liable subject to the conditions agreed in the contract. An affiliation agreement is an agreement between two parties that defines the conditions between the two parties and defines and governs the affiliation relationship. The affiliate agreement defines the obligations of both parties, including the duration of the agreement, the terms of payment and the commissions to be paid to the Affiliate based on sales or traffic on a website, etc. The affiliation contract must not be solely for commercial purposes. For example, an affiliation agreement may be concluded between institutions, universities, non-profit organizations to promote academic or research activities. The final agreement defines the relationship between the parties in which the Affiliate acknowledges that he understands and encourages the policies of the company/institution. Affiliate sites are often categorized by merchants (advertisers) and affiliate networks. Currently, there are no industry standards for categorization.

The following types of websites are generic, but are often understood and used by affiliate distributors. Affiliate marketing is an agreement between a seller and another company that grants the Affiliate a sales commission for the promotion of a product or line of products for the other company. Amazon`s partner programs are an example of this type of marketing. “Marketing Partner Program” means our Marketing Partner Program as described in this Agreement. If the agreement exists between an advertiser and a related company (usually a publisher or website), the agreement must contain a clause relating to “content on the affiliate site”. . . .
