Agreement

This agreement describes the terms and conditions for participation in the Ready to Send Affiliate program. In this agreement, the term “Affiliate” refers to you (the applicant). In this agreement, “Ready to Send” refers to FOG Communications t/a Ready to Send, with whom you are entering this agreement.

By applying to the Ready to Send affiliate program, you are confirming that you have read the agreement and agree to the Terms of Service.

Ready to Send reserves the right to update and change the Terms of Service from time to time without notice. Any new features that augment or enhance the current Program, including the release of new tools and resources, shall be subject to the Terms of Service. Continued use of the Program after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes.

Violation of any of the terms below will result in the termination of your Account and for forfeiture of any outstanding affiliate commission payments earned during the violation. You agree to use the Affiliate Program at your own risk.

Account Terms

  • You must be 18 years or older to be part of this Program.
  • You must live in South Africa to be an Affiliate.
  • You must be a human. Accounts registered by “bots” or other automated methods are not permitted.
  • You must provide your legal full name, a valid email address, and any other information requested in order to complete the signup process.
  • Your Affiliate Dashboard login may only be used by one person – a single login shared by multiple people is not permitted.
  • You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and password. Ready to Send cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with this security obligation.
  • You are responsible for all content posted and activity that occurs under your account.
  • You may not maintain more than one Affiliate account with Ready to Send.
  • You may not use the Affiliate Program for any illegal or unauthorized purpose.
  • You must not, in the use of the Service, violate any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws).
  • You may not use the Affiliate Program to earn money on your own product accounts.

Links/graphics on your site, in your emails, or other communications

Once you have been accepted into the Affiliate Program, you will be assigned a unique Affiliate Code.  Links to www.readytosend.com placed on your site pursuant to this Agreement and which properly utilize such special link formats are referred to as “Referral Links.”

You are not authorized to modify or alter the Referral Links or the cookies in any way.

Ready to Send will provide you with specific links to link advertisements and other marketing content to www.readytosend.com. You must ensure that each of the links between your site and www.readytosend.com properly utilizes such Referral Link formats.  You are permitted to place these links, banners, or other graphics we provide with your Affiliate Code on your site, in your emails, or in other communications. We will provide you with guidelines, link styles, and graphical artwork to use in linking to www.readytosend.com.

Referral Tracking

Ready to Send will track users who have visited Referral Links using cookies which expire after 45 days.

Only users who make a purchase while the cookie is active will be considered referrals and recorded as such in your Affiliate Dashboard. If a potential client clears their cookies during this period, Ready to Send shall not be liable for any commissions that may have been owed to you.

Referral Fees / Commissions

For a subscription sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the client must click-through a Referral Link from your site, email, or other communications to  www.readytosend.com and complete their account opening during that session.

Commissions are earned on subscriptions generated through properly formatted referral links that were automatically tracked by our systems.  We reserve the right to disqualify commissions earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods.

Commissions can be viewed on your Affiliate Dashboard.  Commissions are calculated as a percentage of amount of the subscription (excluding VAT).

Identifying Yourself as an Affiliate

You may not in any manner misrepresent or embellish the relationship between us and you, say you develop our products, say you are part of or express or imply any relationship or affiliation between us and you or any other person or entity except as expressly permitted by this Agreement.

You may not purchase a subscription through your affiliate link for your own use. Such purchase may result (in our sole discretion) in the withholding of referral fees and/or the termination of this Agreement.

Payment schedule

A referral will become eligible for payout (“Eligible Referral”) at the end of the next calendar month if it meets all of these criteria:

i.  The referral makes a purchase of a new subscription and has paid in full.
ii.   The referral’s account remains active and in good standing.
iii.  The referral’s account has not had any of its payments refunded, charged back or otherwise reversed.
iv.   The referral is not a pre-existing client of Ready to Send.

In the event a client requests a refund or reverses payment for a transaction for which you have earned commissions, any commissions earned on the refunded / reversed amount will be deducted from your balance.

Payments only begin once you’ve earned more than R500 in affiliate income. As long as your current affiliate earnings are over R500, you’ll be paid each month. If you haven’t earned R500 since your last payment, we’ll pay you the following month after you’ve crossed the threshold.

If the client is on a recurring payment schedule, you will continue to accumulate commissions for each paid subscription of that client for as long as the client remains a paying client and you remain an affiliate.

If your affiliate account never crosses the R500 threshold, your commissions will not be realized or paid.  Unpaid Affiliate Fees below the threshold will be forfeited after 12 calendar months.

Client definition

Clients who enter into subscriptions through this Program will be deemed to be our clients. Accordingly, all of our rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning client orders, customer service, and subscriptions will apply to those clients. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. For example, we will determine the prices to be charged for subscriptions sold under this Program in accordance with our own pricing policies. Subscriptions and availability may vary from time to time.

You will be solely responsible for the development, operation, and maintenance of your site and for all materials that appear on your site. For example, you will be solely responsible for:

In this respect you may not, without limitation: (i) use the Service to manage any illegal operations, (ii) use any type of spider, virus, worm, Trojan-horse, time bomb or any other codes or instructions that are designed to distort, delete, damage or disassemble the technology underlying the Service (including Ready to Send’s proprietary software and apps which may be available for download on the Website), (iii) use the Service to send any unsolicited commercial communication not permitted by applicable law; (iv) endanger any part of any system or Internet connection of Ready to Send or any third party through use of the Service; or (v) infringe any applicable laws (including without limitation any Privacy Laws) when using the Service or in respect of information collected by you through the use of the Service.

Term of the Agreement and Program

The term of this Agreement will begin upon our acceptance of your Program application and will end when terminated by either party. Either you or we may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause, by giving the other party written notice of termination. Upon the termination of this Agreement for any reason, you will immediately cease use of, and remove from your site, all links to www.readytosend.com, and all of our trademarks and logos, and all other materials provided by or on behalf of us to you pursuant hereto or in connection with the Program. Ready to Send reserves the right to end the Program at any time. Upon program termination, Ready to Send will pay any outstanding earnings accrued above R500.

Termination

Ready to Send, in its sole discretion, may terminate your Affiliate Account at any time, with or without notice, for conduct that is in breach of this Affiliate Agreement, for conduct that Ready to Send believes is harmful to its business, or for conduct where the use of the Affiliate Program is harmful to any other party.

Such termination of the Service will result in the deactivation or deletion of your Account or your access to your Account, and the forfeiture and relinquishment of all potential or to-be-paid commissions in your Account if they were earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods.

Upon termination, you will lose access to your Affiliate Dashboard.  Ready to Send will not be obligated for any future payments of recurring commissions after termination.

Ready to Send reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.
