Sales Agent Program
Terms And Conditions
Our Sales Agent Program (the “Program”) is meant to encourage you to promote our services, to bring us to new audiences and to make sure that you are rewarded for your activity. It does not create any relationship between us apart from independent contractors; you are not our employee, nor do we have a partnership: if we approve your participation in this program, you are an independent contractor.
This means you should pay all applicable taxes, make sure that you have proper insurance, and not make any statement on our behalf. It also means that we will pay you the sums we agree upon specific dates.
Please understand that our liability to you is limited, as stated in our terms of service, and that we are non-exclusive; we can find other sales agents, and you can market other products.
Scope of the Relationship
In plain English: We’re independent contractors, you can’t share your account with others.
When joining the program, and upon our approval, you will be appointed as a non-exclusive sales agent, and you shall act to refer new potential customers to purchase our products and services. As our sales agent, you may not present yourself as a part of Business Growth Direct, and may not create any obligation on behalf of Business Growth Direct.
Your participation is personal, meaning that you cannot have sub-sales agents or share your sales agents fees with anyone else.
You shall invest reasonable time in promoting our services, and do it with good quality; if we find that your promotional material is problematic, offensive, illegal or otherwise objectionable, we may terminate your participation in the program.
You represent and warrant that you are able to participate in the program, that you will only act in a legal, bona fide manner and that you will not infringe on any intellectual property right or act in any deceptive practice when participating in it.
Promotional Materials and Intellectual Property
In plain English: Respect our intellectual property, we give you limited permission.
We reserve all our Intellectual Property Rights; and we provide our sales agents a limited, temporary, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to use our trademark, brand name, and promotional materials, and such license is limited only to the use in promoting our products and services with our permitted banners according to our Trademark Guidelines.
This means that you cannot use our Intellectual Property Rights with another brand name or as a bundled project. It also means that you cannot allow others to use the content we licensed to you.
You may only use the permitted banners and promotional material that we provide you as a part of our gallery.
All promotional materials must include a link to our website.
In plain English: We may stop this relationship at any time.
We reserve the right to terminate your connection with Business Growth Direct (i.e., your membership in the Program), at any time, by providing you with notice of such termination (to the email account with which you applied to the Program), and with immediate effect, at Business Growth Direct sole discretion. When we terminate our relationship, you must cease using all of our Intellectual Property Rights.
Upon termination due to breach (save for termination due to inactivity), we shall retain all funds in your account.
Termination for Inactivity
In plain English: If your account is inactive for an extended period, we will terminate your account and only pay the outstanding balance if it is over a specific sum.
In case we believe that your account is inactive, meaning it did not earn any commission or receive any visits using your referral link, then we may decide to close down your account. In such case, your pending balance, if not exceeding the payment threshold, will not be paid. We will not use this right without providing you notice of at least 14 days, allowing you the time to market and promote your referral links and restore your “active” status.
In plain English: Don’t act bad and keep our reputation. Don’t Distribute Business Growth Direct On Your Own.
In plain English: We will pay you according to our specific program.
Your commission is calculated only upon payment to you. Until then, the expected payment is not an obligation from us to you, but an estimation of future revenues.
We pay our sales agents 45 days after the purchase of one of our services when their commissions reach a threshold that we determine and post on our website. The payment shall be made via PayPal or any other method we agree upon.
Until the payment is made, the sums specified on your account are not considered debt and shall not be paid until you reach that threshold.
You shall bear all taxes and expenses relating to the payment, including any fees which may be incurred by your bank.
If we provide a refund, then we will deduct the commission from your future payment, or request that you return such fees. You also agree that we may offset any sums that you may owe us from any future payments.
Each party shall bear its own expenses, and the commission you are entitled to is the sole payment you receive in relation to your services.
In plain English: We will kick you out if you are a bad actor.
Please note that if at any time we believe that you acted in bad faith or illegally, we may also cancel your participation and withhold all payments.
This list is non-exhaustive, and we may add any practice that we believe is bad. Bad Practices also include any illegal or unauthorized advertising, infringing intellectual property rights, invading users’ privacy, or otherwise using any advertising in violation of local laws and regulations.
