Diapers-4-Less.Com Affiliate Program
Terms of Service


This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to an individual's or entity's participation in the Diapers-4-Less.Com Affiliates Program (the "Program").
As used in this Agreement, "we" means Diapers-4-Less.Com, and "you" means the applicant. "Website" means a World Wide Website and, depending on the context, refers either to Diapers-4-Less.Com's Website located at the URL http://www.Diapers-4-Less.Com , or to the Website that you will link to our Website (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 Website. 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 Website is unsuitable for the Program. Unsuitable sites include those that:
 
  • Promote violence
  • Promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age
  • Promote illegal activities
  • Promote pornography
  • Include "Diapers-4-Less" or variations or misspellings thereof in their domain names
  • Otherwise violate intellectual property rights
  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 Website is thereafter determined (at our sole discretion) to be unsuitable for the Program, we may terminate this Agreement.

  • Product Links
  • Category Links
  • General Link To Diapers-4-Less.Com Home Page
  We will provide you with guidelines and graphical artwork to use in linking to our home page. To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and commission fee accrual, we will provide you with special "tagged" link formats to be used in all links between your Website and our Website. You must ensure that each of the links between your Website and our Website properly utilizes such special link formats. Links to our Website placed on your Website pursuant to this Agreement and which properly utilize such special link formats are referred to as "Special Links." You will only earn commission fees with respect to activity on our Website occurring directly through 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 which would otherwise be paid to you pursuant to this Agreement. You will, however, earn commission fees with respect to all product purchases on our Website once from that “tagged” link.

In addition, you may not:

(g) Use all existing or future software products and services (including without limitation any computer programming code that is an add-on or bundled with any browser or other host application) that will replace, intercept, interfere, hinder, disrupt or otherwise alter in any manner the Web user's access, view or usage of, or other aspect of the Web user's experience at any Diapers 4 Less Affiliate Websites in a manner that causes or otherwise results in a different experience from what was otherwise intended by Diapers 4 Less Affiliates;

If we determine, in our sole discretion, that you have engaged in any of the foregoing activities, we may (without limiting any other rights or remedies available to us) withhold any referral fees otherwise payable to you under this Agreement and/or terminate this Agreement.

3. Order Processing 
  We will process product orders placed by customers who follow special links from your Website to our Website. 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 to customers who purchase products using special links from your Website to our Website 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. Commission Fees 
  We will pay you (in accordance with Sections 5 and 6 below) commission fees on certain Product sales to third parties. For a Product sale to be eligible to earn a commission fee, the customer must follow a Special Link from your Website to our Website, select and purchase the Product using our automated ordering system, accept delivery of the Product at the shipping destination, and remit full payment to us.
5. Commission Fee Schedule 
  You will earn commission fees based on qualifying revenues according to commission fee schedules to be established by us. "Qualifying revenues" are revenues derived by us from our sales of qualifying products including tin signs, refrigerator magnets, light switch plates and thermometers. “Qualifying revenues” do not include shipping & handling, taxes, and service charges.

Diapers-4-Less.Com pays monthly commissions on a set 10%. At the end of each month we will add all of your sales together for that month and arrive at your total commission for the month: You must have at least $100.00 in commisions before DIapers 4 Less will issue payment.
 

15% of every sale you make for life

 

Each time you refer a visitor to Diapers-4-Less.Com and they complete a purchase, you earn commission on that sale. If the visitor does not purchase immediately, but comes back within 30 days and purchases, we still credit you with the sale.

Diapers-4-Less.Com will also pay you commission on sales made by all Websites you recruit to the Diapers-4-Less.Com Affiliates Program. To qualify, the Websites you recruit must reference your Account Number or Website ID when they fill out our Affiliates Program application. This reference can be made manually whereby the applicant enters your Account Number or Website ID into the field marked "Referrer Account Number or Website ID" on the Affiliates Application or automatically using our recruitment banners that contain special links.

For each Website you recruit, you will earn: 5% off all sales generated by your recruit.

  5% of every sale they make for life
 

Affiliates may not sign-up Websites owned by them or beneficially owned by them.

Affiliates that sign-up for the Diapers-4-Less.Com Affiliates Program must have a valid URL that they are responsible for.

Affiliates may not directly or indirectly offer any person or entity any consideration or incentive to sign up Websites to the Diapers-4-Less.Com Affiliates Program.

If we determine, at our sole discretion, that you are abusing the system in the manner stated above, we may (without limiting any other rights or remedies available to us) withdraw your participation and withhold any commission fees payable to you for Websites you recruit.

6. Commission Fee Payment 
  We will pay you commission fees on a monthly basis. 30 days following the end of each calendar month, we will send you a check for the commission fees earned on your sales of Qualifying Products that were sold during that month, less any taxes that we are required by law to withhold. However, if the commission fees payable to you for any month are less than $100.00 for affiliates, we will hold those commission fees until the total amount due is at least $100.00 or (if earlier) until this Agreement is terminated. If a Product that generated a commission fee is returned by the customer, we will deduct the corresponding commission fee from your next monthly payment. If there is no subsequent payment, we will send you a bill for the commission fee.

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 prices and availability may vary from time to time. Because price changes may affect products that you already have listed on your Website, you may not include price information in your product descriptions.
