These terms govern your use of our Affiliate Program that we provide via the onlinedirectory.network website.

By participating in the Online Directory Network Affiliate Program (“Program”), you agree with the terms and policies set forth in the agreement (“Agreement”) below.

Please read the entire Agreement, as it is a legal agreement between you and the Online Directory Network (“we”, “us”, “our”, onlinedirectory.network).

By submitting the online application, you are agreeing that you have read and understood the terms and policies of this Agreement, and that, if we accept your application, you agree to be legally responsible for each and every term and policy.

Your participation in the Program is solely for the purpose of legally advertising onlinedirectory.network to receive a commission on products purchased by your referrals.

This Agreement begins when we accept you into the Program and will end when your participation is terminated.

We may change the Program or this Agreement at any time without notice.

If any change to the Program or the Agreement is unacceptable to you, your only choice is to terminate your participation.

Your continuing participation in the Program will constitute your acceptance of any change.

You or onlinedirectory.network may suspend or terminate your participation in the Program at any time for any reason.

You are only eligible to earn commissions while you are participating in the Program in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.

Referrals

We will attribute referrals to you based on a tracking code embedded in your affiliate links.

When a referral clicks through your affiliate link, we set a cookie that contains your tracking code in the browser.

We may also record the IP address of the browser or use similar technology to identify the browser.

When the referral decides to buy a product at onlinedirectory.network, a script will look for the cookie or use similar technology to identify you and award the commission.

Referrals from your affiliate link may make a purchase up to 120 days later and we will still award the commission, as long as the cookie is still present in the browser.

We reserve the right to refuse service to any referral.

Commissions

For each new referral that purchases any qualifying Online Directory Network subscription-based product or service, you earn 20% recurring lifetime commissions for as long as they renew their subscription.

For each new referral that purchases any qualifying Online Directory Network non-subscription product or service, you earn a 10% one-time commission.

We use an affiliate tracking system to tabulate and track sales and commission payments due to our affiliates after the tracking process and purchases are completed.

Through the affiliate tracking system website, you will have access to the information that we use to determine commissions we owe you.

We reserve the right to increase or decrease commission rates from time to time as it sees fit.

There is no maximum commission limit.

If a referral cancels their subscription or if the referral requests a chargeback on the purchase, you will not receive a commission.

Qualifying Products and Services

Subscription Based

Non-Subscription Based

Payouts

We pay all of our affiliates that have successfully registered for affiliate payments, at the end of each month.

Payouts will disperse to affiliates within 2-14 days and each affiliate will be notified when their earnings are deposited.

There are no minimums to be eligible for a payout.

Reversals

We reserve the right to reverse referrals due to order cancellations, duplicate tracking, returns, disputed charges, and Program violations as outlined in these terms and policies.

Additionally, if we ask you for clarification or more information on any orders or clicks that we suspect may be in violation of Program terms and policies, we expect that you will respond in a timely and honest manner.

Below are violations of our communications policy.

  1. You are not forthcoming, you are intentionally vague, or you are found to be dishonest.
  2. You are not responsive within a reasonable time period and after multiple attempts to make contact using your email address associated with your Online Directory Network account.

If either of the above applies, then we reserve the absolute right to suspend you from the Program, reverse referrals, modify payouts, set your commission to 0%, or immediately terminate your participation in the Program.

We know that many violations are a result of automated processes, however, it is incumbent upon each affiliate to ensure that it has the appropriate checks and balances in place to address such issues proactively and to adhere to the terms and policies of this Agreement.
