Bridal-Jewelley.co.uk AFFILIATE AGREEMENT
Terms and Agreement
This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to an individual's and/or entity's participation in the Bridal-Jewellery.co.uk Affiliate Program (hereafter known as the "Program"). As used in this Agreement, "we" refers to Bridal-Jewellery.co.uk and "you" refers to the applicant. "Site" refers to a World Wide Web site and, depending on the context, refers either to Bridal-Jewellery.co.uks site ("our site" or to the site that you will link to Bridal-Jewellery.co.uk ("your site").
Enrolment in the Program
You agree that all information in your application is true and accurate and understand and accept that any false information will result in the termination of your application. Applications are to be considered accepted and approved by us upon remittance by you. You will receive notification to confirm the approval or disapproval of your application. If your application is terminated for this or any other reason after it has been accepted, you automatically and immediately forfeit all commissions earned that have yet to be paid to you from the time of termination or decline. This is so because the commissions will have been earned under false pretences and are, therefore, invalid.
Linking To Our Site
You must use the link provided to you by Bridal-Jewellery.co.uk no substitutions or alterations are permitted. You are responsible for ensuring that the link is correct and error free. Any errors resulting in the "loss" of potential commissions are your sole responsibility and you will not be compensated for them by Bridal-Jewellery.co.uk in any form.
It is against your affiliate agreement to advertise the "Bridal-Jewellery.co.uk" URL via unsolicited email. Some people may think that your "spam" email originates from us, damaging our reputation and causing us administrative problems. DO NOT send unsolicited email to promote Bridal-Jewellery.co.uk or you will be in violation of your affiliate's operating agreement and your account will be terminated, forfeiting all outstanding referral fees.
We will process product orders placed by customers who follow program specified direct links from your site to our site. We reserve the right to reject orders that do not comply with any requirements that we may establish periodically. These requirements will be made known to you as they are established and full compliance is expected and required. We will be responsible for all aspects of order processing and fulfilment. Among other things, we will prepare order forms, process payments, cancellations, and refunds, and handle customer service. We will track sales made to customers who purchase products using special links from your site to our site and will send you periodic reports summarizing this sales activity. The form, content, and frequency of the reports may vary from time to time at our discretion. To ensure accurate tracking, reporting, and fee accrual, you must ensure that the special links between your site and our site are properly formatted.
We will pay you referral fees (commission) on product sales to third parties. For a product sale to generate a referral fee, the customer must follow a special link (in the format specified by Bridal-Jewellery.co.uk) from your site to our site, purchase the product using our automated ordering system, and remit full payment to us. The Program is intended for commercial use only, but you may purchase products through the Program for your own use. Postage and Packaing costs are not included as part of the commission. Products that are entitled to earn referral fees under the rules set forth above are hereinafter referred to as "Qualifying Products." Although Bridal-Jewellery.co.uk does, and may at any time, sell products for other companies and suppliers, you may not in any way earn a commission for these; only products stocked or on our displayed website by Bridal-Jewellery.co.uk are eligible for the Program.
You will earn referral fees based on the number of items of Qualifying Products (as defined above), according to fee schedules to be established by us. Any discount issued to a customer for any reason (as determined and issued solely by us) will be deducted from the commission due and will, therefore be reflected in your referral fees.
We will pay you referral fees on a quarterly basis insofar as the fees meet our minimum payment criteria. Approximately 30 days following the end of each quarter, we will send you a cheque for the referral fees earned on products that were sold during the previous quarter, not including any chargebacks made by the customers prior to the end of the period. If a product that generated a referral fee is returned by the customer after payment has been made to you, we will deduct the corresponding fee from your next payment. If there is no subsequent payment, we will send you a bill for the fee. You are solely responsible for the payment of any taxes acquired on fees that are paid to you.
Policies and Pricing
Customers who purchase products through this Program will be deemed to be customers of Bridal-Jewellery.co.uk Accordingly, all Bridal-Jewellery.co.uk rules, 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 grant you a non-exclusive, fully revocable right to use the Bridal-Jewellery.co.uk name and product name as we (at out discretion) 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 link, the product description, or any of our images in any way. We reserve all of our rights to the link, the product description, any other images, our trade names and trademarks, and all other intellectual property rights. You agree to follow our Trademark Guidelines, as those may change from time to time. We may revoke your license at any time by way of an email generated notice.

We may withhold your final payment for a reasonable time (as determined by us) to ensure that the correct amount is paid.
Modification Of Agreement
We may modify any of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, at any time and at our sole discretion, by posting a notice of change(s) or a new agreement on our site.

Sales that were attempted but failed during periods of interruption (announced or otherwise) will not be compensated for by us.
