This agreement contains the terms and conditions between us,
E-Soft Inc (the publishers of SecuritySpace), and you, the applicant,
regarding your application to participate in
the SecuritySpace Affiliate Program (the "Program"). Upon our
acceptance of your application, these terms will be part of the overall
terms and conditions you are required to agree to when using our site.
In this Agreement, "we, us, our, E-Soft or SecuritySpace" means E-Soft Inc,
and "you" means the Affiliate participating in the Program.
"SecuritySpace Web Site" or "Our Site" means the web site located at
http://*.securityspace.com or https://*.securityspace.com, and "Your Site"
means the web site upon which you establish the Links to Our Site as
part of this Program.
To begin, complete the online application via our site. We will review
applications in good faith and notify you if your application is accepted.
We reserve the right to reject your application for any, or without any reason.
Possible reasons for rejection include, but are not limited to, advertising our
services on media that contains sexually explicit, violent, discriminatory, or
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 (in our sole discretion) to be unsuitable for the Program, we may terminate this Agreement.
|Links in Your Media|
To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and referral fee accrual, we will
provide you with special "tagged" link formats to be used in all links
between your media and our site. You must ensure that each of the links
between your media and our site properly utilizes such special link formats.
Links to our site placed on your site pursuant to this Agreement and which
properly utilize such special link formats are referred to as "Links."
You will earn referral fees only with respect to activity on our site
occurring directly through Links; we will not be liable to you with
respect to any failure by you to use Links, 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 orders placed by customers who follow 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. We will be responsible for all aspects of order processing and fulfillment
including order entry, payment processing
cancellations, and returns, and related customer service. We will track sales made to customers who purchase Products by using Links from your site to our site and will make available to you reports summarizing this sales activity. The form, content, and frequency of the reports may vary from time to time at our discretion.
Those customers are deemed to be and you agree that
they are customers of E-Soft and not customers of the Affiliate with
to the sale of our products and
services. The Affiliate has no right to information that we
have regarding these customers. All of our rules, operating procedures and
policies regarding customers, including product availability, pricing and
problem resolution, apply to any orders received through this Program. We
may change those rules, procedures and policies ("Policies") at any time
without prior notice to Affiliate. We do not authorize the
Affiliate to make and we are not responsible for any
representations made by Affiliate that conflict with the
Policies. We reserve the right to reject any order for any reason.
For the purposes of this agreement, an Active Customer is any subscriber
to SecuritySpace that has been subscribed for less than 15 months year, or
has made any purchase within the last 15 calendar months
from SecuritySpace. Customers that do not have any purchase activity for
a period of 15 consecutive calendar months will no longer be eligible for
generating referral fees.
Your entitlement to a referral fee will accrue only if the customer (i)
accesses Our Site through the use of a Link on Your Site; (ii) before exiting
our site, registers an account with us. Once a customer has created an
account, they are considered to be an Active Customer
and are eligible for generating referral fees so long as they remain
an Active Customer, regardless of what path they use to visit our site.
You will earn a minimum of a 35% referral fee based on the price
of our products/services actually purchased and paid for by the customer.
You are eligible to participate in a volume incentive program that will
increase your referral fee based on eligible sales made in the last 90
days by Active Customers originally referred to us by you.
The volume based commission schedule is shown below:
Sales will be termed as "Completed Orders" only after verification, credit check, or other criteria have been
completed on the account. Services cancelled or refunded within
90 days from date of purchase will be considered returns and associated
commissions will be deducted from your account.
We will pay referral fees on a monthly basis. Approximately 30
days following the end of each month, we will send you a check for
the referral fees earned, with minimum of $30 Canadian (approximately $20 US).
However, if the referral fees is
less than $30, we will hold payment until the total amount due is at least $30 or (if earlier) until this Agreement is terminated.
|Reports of Sales|
On an ongoing basis, we will provide Affiliate reports that show you the number of
clicks through to our site, the number of customer signups, the sales made to these customers,
and the commission accrued. The format of the
reporting statistics are subject to change upon the sole discretion of

In addition, products/services, product/service prices, and availability may
vary from time to time. You agree to direct Customers to SecuritySpace for
