Affiliate Terms

Last updated on 15th November, 2023

As an authorised affiliate (Affiliate) of PDLC Tech Ltd (Link My Books), you agree to abide by the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement (Agreement). Please read the entire Agreement carefully before registering and promoting Link My Books as an Affiliate.

Your participation in the Program is solely to legally advertise our website to receive a commission on memberships and products purchased by individuals referred to Link My Books by your own website or personal referrals.

By signing up for the Link My Books Affiliate Program (Program), you indicate your acceptance of this Agreement and its terms and conditions.

1. Approval or Rejection of the Application

We reserve the right to approve or reject ANY Affiliate Program Application in our sole and absolute discretion. You will have no legal recourse against us for the rejection of your Affiliate Program Application.

2. Commissions

Link My Books pays the Affiliate a Commission on each Qualified Purchase made by a Referred Customer during the calculated month.

The Commission is 20% of the gross revenue, excluding taxes, from monthly base rates for subscription or fees for one-time purchases of features.

If the Qualified Purchase is a monthly or annual subscription, the Commission is payable for the entire subscription period. The Commission does not apply to non-Qualified Purchases.

Qualified Purchases are tracked through Company Trackers, indicate the Affiliate's unique ID as the source, and must be made within 60 days of the Referred Customer's first visit to the Company Website after being referred by the Affiliate.

Canceled, returned, refunded, or chargeback-related purchases are not considered Qualified Purchases.

A "Referred Customer" is a new and unique customer referred by the Affiliate through Company Trackers.

Commissions will be paid once a month. For an Affiliate to receive a commission, the referred account must remain active for a minimum of 60 days.

You cannot refer yourself, and you will not receive a commission on your own accounts.

Payments will only be sent for transactions that have been successfully completed. Transactions that result in chargebacks or refunds will not be paid out.

Payouts are made on a Net-30 basis, meaning commissions earned in one month will become valid for payout the following month and the payout will be made 30 days later. For example, commissions incurred anytime during March will become valid for payout on 1st April and then paid out on 30th April.

When we make a payout you will receive an email confirming it.

Payouts will only be made via PayPal. Promoters must ensure they have entered the correct PayPal email address they want to receive payouts to. No corrections can be made once a payout has been sent.

If commissions due on a payment date are less than £25, the Company may withhold them until the total Commissions meet or exceed £25.

You must pay any sales, use, or similar tax or VAT associated with the payments received.

3. Termination

Your affiliate application and status in the Program may be suspended or terminated for any of the following reasons:

  • Inappropriate advertisements (false claims, misleading hyperlinks, etc.).
  • Spamming (mass email, mass newsgroup posting, etc.).
  • Creating websites, promotions or emails which create the impression that they have been created by Link My Books.
  • Using any form or paid advertising containing Link My Books branded keywords or the branded terms of competitors.
  • Advertising on sites containing or promoting illegal activities.
  • Failure to disclose the affiliate relationship for any promotion that qualifies as an endorsement under existing guidelines and regulations, or any applicable country/state laws.
  • Violation of intellectual property rights. Link My Books reserves the right to require license agreements from those who employ trademarks of Link My Books in order to protect our intellectual property rights.
  • Offering rebates, coupons, or other form of promised kick-backs from your affiliate commission as an incentive. Adding bonuses or bundling other products with Link My Books, however, is acceptable.
  • Self referrals, fraudulent transactions, suspected Affiliate fraud.

If your affiliate account is terminated for one of the above reasons you may forfeit any commissions earned to date and commissions paid out already may be recalled.

In addition to the foregoing, Link My Books reserves the right to terminate any Affiliate account at any time, for any violations of this Agreement or no reason.

4. Affiliate Links

You may use graphic and text links both on your website and within in your email messages. You may also advertise the Link My Books site in online and offline classified ads, magazines, and newspapers.

You may use the graphics and text provided by us, or you may create your own as long as they are deemed appropriate according to the conditions and not in violation as outlined in Condition 3.

5. Coupon and Deal Sites

Link My Books occasionally offers coupon to select affiliates and to our newsletter subscribers. If you’re not pre-approved / assigned a branded coupon, then you’re not allowed to promote the coupon. Below are the terms that apply for any affiliate who is considering the promotion of our products in relation to a deal or coupon:

  • Affiliates may not use misleading text on affiliate links, buttons or images to imply that anything besides currently authorised deals to the specific affiliate.
  • Affiliates may not bid on Link My Books Coupons, Link My Books Discounts or other phrases implying coupons are available.
  • Affiliates may not generate pop-ups, pop-unders, iframes, frames, or any other seen or unseen actions that set affiliate cookies unless the user has expressed a clear and explicit interest in activating a specific savings by clicking on a clearly marked link, button or image for that particular coupon or deal. Your link must send the visitor to the merchant site.
  • User must be able to see coupon/deal/savings information and details before an affiliate cookie is set (i.e. “click here to see coupons and open a window to merchant site” is NOT allowed).
  • Affiliate sites may not have “Click for (or to see) Deal/Coupon” or any variation, when there are no coupons or deals available, and the click opens the merchant site or sets a cookie. Affiliates with such text on the merchant landing page will be removed from the program immediately.

6. Pay Per Click (PPC) Policy

PPC bidding is NOT allowed without prior written permission. Any affiliate found using PPC may have their account terminated and forfeit all commissions earned to date.

7. Liability

Link My Books will not be liable for indirect or accidental damages (loss of revenue, commissions) due to affiliate tracking failures, loss of database files, or any results of intents of harm to the Program and/or to our website(s).

We do not make any expressed or implied warranties with respect to the Program and/or the memberships or products sold by Link My Books. We make no claim that the operation of the Program and/or our website(s) will be error-free and we will not be liable for any interruptions or errors.

8. Term of the Agreement

The terms and conditions of this agreement may be modified by us at any time. If any modification to the terms and conditions of this Agreement are unacceptable to you, your only choice is to terminate your Affiliate account. Your continuing participation in the Program will constitute your acceptance of any change.
