Best Snus Affiliate Program
Last Updated: January 2021
Your membership in the BestSnus program is intended to encourage you to sell and promote our products and to attract new customers. As such, the service you provide to BestSnus is recognized and remunerated within the framework of a customer-supplier relationship where we represent the customer and you, the supplier. Stated clearly, BestSnus has no other obligation nor liability beyond this limited agreement where you are neither our employee nor our partner. In such a case where we chose to endorse your membership in our affiliate program, this will only be done within the above mentioned framework. Nonetheless, all services rendered will be remunerated and commissions paid upon presentation of an invoice and within a delay mutually agreed upon.
As an independent affiliate, it is expected that all applicable taxes and duties be paid on your behalf and in accordance with your place of business. It is just as relevant to state the importance of an insurance policy acquisition on your behalf, offering proper liability coverage and notwithstanding any disclosures on our behalf.
Scope of the affiliation relationship
The account that will be assigned to you if your application is accepted will be unique and personal. Under no circumstances will you be allowed to share this account with other people. Joining the affiliate program upon acceptance provides you with affiliate status and the ability to recommend our products to potential new customers. Your role as an affiliate renders you independent from Bestsnus and you may not present yourself as part of Bestsnus.
Your participation is personal, meaning that you may not have sub-affiliates or share your affiliate fees with anyone else.
You must use all the means in your possession to promote our products with due diligence. We reserve the right to terminate your membership in the program if we regard your promotional material as offensive, illegal or objectionable. Your participation in the Affiliate Program is warranted only to this extent. You must also agree to only act legally and in good faith and not to violate any intellectual property rights or engage in any deceptive practices.
Promotional Tools and Intellectual Property
We expect you to respect our intellectual property all the while allowing certain limited uses as follows:
In case you need to, you may only use the permitted banners and promotional material that we provide you as a part of our gallery.
Termination and Suspension
We reserve the right to end this agreement at any moment and the ability to terminate your membership in the Affiliate Program at any time, as we see fit. If this should happen, you will receive a notice of termination at the e-mail address you provided us with when you joined. The termination will take effect immediately at the sole discretion of BestSnus. As soon as your membership is terminated, you may no longer use any promotional tools that would have been made available to you up until this point. As such, you may not claim any commission on sales made after this date.
If we suspect you of breaking our rules, we may suspend your account until the suspicion is clarified. We may also claim your account book from you before your suspension is lifted.
Unless you are terminated for inactivity, your commissions will be held in your account following termination due to violating membership rules.
Termination for Inactivity
After six month of inactivity, we will close your account and only pay out the outstanding balance over a certain amount.
If we find that your account is inactive, that is, there has been no sale or visit in the last six months using your referral code, then we may decide to close your account. In this case, your pending balance, if it does not exceed the payment threshold, will not be paid. We will not exercise this right without giving you at least 14 days notice, allowing you sufficient time to reactivate your account by promoting our products through regenerating visits and sales.
Commissions are calculated and paid according to a specific cookie measurement and none otherwise.
Each affiliate will be provided with a rated affiliate commission of which we will notify in writing. We may change this commission rate at any time and at our own discretion. Such changes will not be retroactive.
Commissions will only be paid for sales made using your affiliate code. We will not pay commission for self-dealing, i.e using the affiliate program to get discounts.
Commissions are calculated based on total sale, not including Shipping Fees. We will not pay commission on sales cancelled by a client or that may have been refunded. Commission will still be paid to you in the case of a parcel not arriving to the client and deserving a refund.
You will be remunerated according to the turnover that you will have obtained on the sale of our products through your affiliate code. The accounts will be closed on the 15th of each month and your commission will be paid on the 1st of the following month on the basis of your turnover over the last period. This payment can only be made on presentation of an invoice corresponding to the amount of your commission.
As long as the payment is not made, the sums indicated in your account are not considered as debts, and will only be paid when you reach this threshold.This threshold is set at 10 €. No payment will be made if this threshold is not reached.
You shall bear all taxes and expenses relating to the payment, including any fees which may be incurred by your bank.
You are required by law to provide us with an invoice upon payment.
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.
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.
The following practices are considered bad practice: (i) use of deceptive practices, encouraging users to click on banners or using any automated means to generate traffic; (ii) portraying yourself as part of Bestsnus; (iii) using the Bestsnus Trademark, either in violation of the Trademark Guidelines while displaying unauthorized banners, or when using the Bestsnus Trademark as part of your domain name, website name, banners or in any form of paid advertising; (iv) using domain names which imply a link to the Bestsnus brand, including the word “Bestsnus” or similar names having a similar sound, appearance or font style; (v) spam; (vi) buying traffic; (vii) using paid search or keyword advertising, using our intellectual property rights or our brand name to drive traffic to your site or to the banners; (viii) offering a portion of your commission to others; (ix) using words such as “offer”, “sale” or “discount” in a manner that is misleading or indicates that there is a discount, rebate, cash back or other reduced payment for their products when there is none.
This list is non-exhaustive, and we may block any practice that we believe is bad and terminate or suspend your account due to it. 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.
You may not publicize your earnings from the affiliate program.
Being as our agreement is confidential, any commissions paid to you should also be kept as such. You may however disclose that you receive a commission for every click on our banner, if you are required to do so by law, albeit without divulging your specific commission.
