Affiliate Program Terms and Conditions
This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply
to an individual's or entity's participation in the Macroom Land Trust
Affiliates Program (the 'Program'). As used in this Agreement, 'we'
means Macroom Land Trust, and 'you' means the applicant. 'Site' means
a World Wide Web site located at the URL www.apieceofireland.com
or to the site that you will link to our site (and which you will identify
in your Program application).
Enrollment in the Program
To begin the enrolment process, you will complete the application form
above. 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 site is unsuitable
for the Program. Unsuitable sites include those that:
Promote sexually explicit materials
Promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability,
sexual orientation, or age
Promote illegal activities
Promote the use of bulk e-mail or spam
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 site is thereafter determined (at our sole discretion) to be
unsuitable for the Program, we may terminate this Agreement.
Links on Your Site
You will be provided with a unique affiliate identification code which
must be used in all pages that generate sales. We will not be liable
to you with respect to any failure in the use of the unique identification
code including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction
of amounts that would otherwise be paid to you pursuant to this Agreement.
We will process product orders placed by customers who follow the links
from your site to our site. 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. The form, content, and frequency
of the reports may vary from time to time at our discretion. All of
our rules, operating procedures and policies regarding customer orders
and accounts will apply to orders we receive through the special link
from your sponsoring Web site. We reserve the right to reject any order
for any reason, including any order that does not comply with our rules,
operating procedures and policies or that violates applicable law.
Tracking of Sales
We will track sales made to customers who use the unique Affiliate
code from your sponsoring Web site. You will be solely responsible for
ensuring that your special link includes your unique Affiliate code and
is formatted properly, a necessary prerequisite for us to track such sales.
Statements of referral product sales activity are available to you at
any time and you will have private access to yours stats, which are updated
daily. All statements after 30 days shall be deemed correct unless you
give us notice of any error prior to that date. We shall not be responsible
for any errors you or your customers make which result in any loss of
any tracking information contained in the special link. To protect our
customers' privacy, the names or other personal information about specific
customers will not be provided to you.
Policy Applies to All Orders: Every customer who buys a product through
this program is deemed to be a customer of Macroom Land Trust. You do
not have the authority to make or accept any offer of purchase on our
behalf. All of our policies regarding customer orders, including product
availability, pricing and problem resolution, will apply to these customers.
We are not responsible for any representations you make which conflict
with our policies.
Product Prices and Availability
The price charged for every product sold under this program will be determined
by us according to our own pricing policies. Product prices may vary from
time to time, including suppliers' price increases and special discounts
offered by us on products that may already be listed by you. You may not
specify product prices in your descriptions and our policies will always
determine the price paid by the customer. Product availability changes
frequently and we will endeavour to present our best available information
regarding product availability. We cannot guarantee the availability or
price of any product.
We will pay you referral fees on certain product sales to third parties.
For a product sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer
must follow a link from your site to our site, select and purchase the
product using our ordering system, accept delivery of the product at the
shipping destination, and remit full payment to us.
Referral Fee Schedule
You will earn referral fees based on qualifying revenues according to
referral fee schedules to be established by us and based around the minimum
and maximum prices for items that are available through the program.
Referral Fee Payment
We will pay you referral fees on a quarterly basis. Approximately 7 days
following the end of each quarter, we will send you payment for the referral
fees earned on our sales of qualifying products that were shipped during
that month. However, if the referral fees payable to you for any quarter
are less than US$25.00, we will hold those referral fees until the total
amount due is at least $25.00 or (if earlier) until this Agreement is
terminated. If the customer returns a product that generated a referral
fee, we will deduct the corresponding referral fee from your next quarter
payment. If there is no subsequent payment, we will send you a bill for
the referral fee.
Policies and Pricing
Customers who buy products through this Program will be deemed to be customers
of Macroom Land Trust. Accordingly, our policies, and operating procedures
concerning customer orders, customer service, and product sales will apply
to those customers. 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. We will use
commercially reasonable efforts to present accurate information, but we
cannot guarantee the availability or price of any particular product.
We grant you a nonexclusive, revocable right to use the graphic images
and text we supply and such other images for which we grant express permission,
solely for the purpose of identifying your site as a Program participant
and to assist in generating product sales. You may not modify the graphic
image or text, or any other of our images, in any way. We reserve all
of our rights in the graphic image and text, any other images, our trade
names and trademarks, and all other intellectual property rights. You
