Affiliate Agreement

Last Updated January 20th, 2020.

Shenpire Group LLC, DBA SkillSuccess.com Affiliate Agreement 

SkillSuccess.com may offer you an opportunity to become an independent SkillSuccess.com Affiliate (“Affiliate”), wherein you have the opportunity to earn additional money for SkillSuccess.com accounts that you sell to other users. SkillSuccess.com reserves the sole and exclusive right to determine the amount of remuneration each Affiliate will receive in exchange for the Affiliate’s efforts.  Affiliate commission is further discussed herein. See also SkillSuccess.com Terms of Use, which apply to you in your role as Affiliate, unless otherwise expressly provided for.   

This Affiliate Agreement (“Agreement”) governs Your application for, and any subsequent participation in, SkillSuccess.com’s Affiliate program.  By completing your Affiliate account registration, You thereby accept the terms of this Agreement, You indicate that You have read and understood this Agreement, and agree that You are bound by its terms. 

SECTION 1 – PARTIES  All references to “SkillSuccess.com” herein means and refers to Shenpire Group LLC, doing business as SkillSuccess.com.  All references to “You” and “Your” mean and refer to the person or entity who has executed this Agreement.  SkillSuccess.com and You are each referred to herein as a “Party,” and collectively as the “Parties.”

SECTION 2 – APPLICATION  You agree to provide all information requested by SkillSuccess.com in connection with Your Affiliate application, and You affirm that all information that You provide is truthful and accurate.  You understand and agree that SkillSuccess.com retains sole and exclusive discretion to determine whether You qualify for participation in SkillSuccess.com’s Affiliate program. Not everyone who applies for SkillSuccess.com’s Affiliate program will qualify to participate.  

SECTION 3 – CONSENT TO BE CONTACTED  You expressly consent to be contacted at the email address and the phone number You provide in Your application about Your application and the Affiliate program, including through automated dialing systems, texts and artificial or pre-recorded messages.  This consent is a material condition of this Agreement and may not be revoked except in writing by both Parties.

SECTION 4 – COMPENSATION   If Your application to become an Affiliate is approved by SkillSuccess.com, You will receive a unique Affiliate ID. The Affiliate ID will be incorporated within each URL which You will use to advertise SkillSuccess.com.  You will have the opportunity to receive a commission for each sale (“Sale”) that is registered using Your Affiliate ID. 

In the event that a potential new user (“Prospect”) has multiple Affiliate cookies (“Cookies”), the most recently-acquired Cookie will determine which Affiliate is credited with a Sale. There are some products sold that do not have trial periods.

Provided that the Sold Account (as defined below) remains in good status within sixty (60) days from the Sale, You will be paid a commission for each Sold Account that generates a payment to SkillSuccess.com in the initial paid renewal month (“Commission”).  Except as otherwise provided herein, Commission payments will be paid between the 10th – 15th of each month following SkillSuccess.com’s receipt of payment for a Sold Account, subject to the other terms of this Agreement.  All Commission payments are based on the amount of fees received by SkillSuccess.com, less sales taxes.

The amount of Commissions are as follows:

  1. Monthly: 100% of first paid renewal. No recurring commissions.
  2. Annual: 20% of first paid renewal. No recurring commissions.

All Commissions are paid in U.S. Dollars (USD) or otherwise in currencies offered by the payment provider.  Some payment methods may incur processing fees that may be deducted from Your Commissions. Your Commission must equal or exceed One Hundred and 00/100 Dollars ($100.00) (USD) before You receive a payment from SkillSuccess.com. 

Once a Commission of $100 (USD) or more is earned, You will need to register with our third-party payment provider to receive payment of Commissions. This means You are authorizing third party companies to contact You.  Before You can be paid any Commission, You must provide SkillSuccess.com a completed W-8 or W-9 tax form, as instructed by SkillSuccess.com, as well as any supporting documentation requested by SkillSuccess.com or its third-party payment provider. 

Affiliates will not be paid any Commissions for payments made on Affiliate’s own user account(s).  Affiliates are not permitted to open a SkillSuccess.com account under the name of another person or entity, under a fictitious name, or under any name merely for the purpose of obtaining Commissions or any other compensation.  Affiliates may not pay for another person’s or entity’s account. Affiliates are not permitted to offer cash rebates or other monetary incentives to obtain Sales. 

Commissions are paid only for transactions that actually occur between SkillSuccess.com and a Sale in which payment is received by SkillSuccess.com.  If payment for a Sold Account later results in a refund or chargeback, and if a Commission was paid to You for that Sold Account, then the Commission will be deducted from Your future Commissions.  

If SkillSuccess.com determines, in its sole and exclusive discretion, that any Sale was procured fraudulently or as a result of any violation of this Agreement or applicable law, no Commission will be paid for such Sale and, for past sales, such payment amounts shall be deducted from Your future Commissions, and SkillSuccess.com may terminate this Agreement immediately without SkillSuccess.com having any liability to You.

SECTION 5 – TERM AND TERMINATION  The term of this Agreement will begin the earlier of (i) when You click “Create Your Account” and submit; or (ii) Your participation in the Affiliate program is approved. Your participation in the SkillSuccess.com Affiliate program will continue month-to-month until terminated. Either Party may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause, by giving the other Party thirty (30) days’ written notice of termination.  If, in our sole discretion, You fail, or we suspect that You have failed, to comply with any term or provision of the Agreement or the Terms of Service, or violated any law, whether in connection with Your use of SkillSuccess.com or otherwise, we may terminate the Agreement or suspend Your access to the Affiliate website (“Website”) at any time without notice to You. In such an instance, and in our sole discretion, we may also for the aforementioned reasons, terminate our relationship and suspend any accounts owned/controlled by You.  For the avoidance of doubt, and without limitation for purposes of the foregoing, any violation of the required disclosure will be deemed a material breach of this Agreement. In the event this Agreement is canceled due to Your breach, You immediately forfeit all Commissions and any other payments owed to You or that may in the future be owed to You without any further liability by SkillSuccess.com to You. 

If this Agreement is terminated or canceled, then all provisions that, by their nature, should survive, will survive, including, but not necessarily limited to, all limitations of liability, disclaimers of warranties, indemnity obligations, mandatory arbitration and class action waiver provisions, and exceptions to arbitration.  All representations and warranties undertaken by You shall also survive termination or cancellation of this Agreement and/or Your SkillSuccess.com account.

SECTION 6 – ADDITIONAL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES  In addition to Your other representations and warranties herein, You further represent and warrant that there are no prior or pending government investigations or inquiries of, or prosecutions against You by the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”), any other federal or state governmental agency, or any industry regulatory authority, anywhere in the world, nor any prior or pending private lawsuits against You which relate to alleged intentional torts or alleged violation of any consumer protection or advertising laws.   

SECTION 7 – ENTIRE AGREEMENT This Agreement, Appendix A below, along with SkillSuccess.com’s standard Terms of Use, represents the entire agreement between the Parties and supersedes any other written or oral agreement between the Parties as pertaining to Your Affiliate application and, if approved, Your rights and responsibilities as an Affiliate.
