Affiliate Terms and Conditions

Affiliate Terms and Conditions

We have created these Terms and Conditions to ensure a smooth collaboration, by making our affiliate partnership requirements clear and upfront.

Please read the entire agreement. By joining the Friends of the Original Constitution® “FOTOC” Affiliate Program you agree that you have read and understand this agreement and that you have the full right, power and authority to enter into and be bound by the Terms and Conditions of this agreement without the approval or consent of any other party.

1. Registration

Your application to become a FOTOC affiliate is subject to a manual review process in order to assess whether we’d make a good fit. The review process can take up to 5 business days and you will be notified via email with our decision.

By becoming an affiliate you agree to receive occasional emails from FOTOC regarding changes in the affiliate program Terms and Conditions, news and updates or other information relevant to you as a FOTOC affiliate.

You must provide us with accurate information regarding who you are, your location details and the real world methods and/ or website(s) and/ or platforms you intend to promote FOTOC.

Reasons for rejected applications include but are not limited to any real world methods and/ or websites and/ or businesses that:

  • promote or display violence, discrimination, sexually explicit materials, copyright and trademark infringement, spamming, scamming, or any other illegal activities;
  • include in their domain name Friends of the Original Constitution® “FOTOC”, its variations or misspellings;
  • replicate or resemble our website design (explicitly or implied) in a manner which leads customers to believe you are FOTOC or any other affiliated business;
  • resell any of our products; or collect donations directly;
  • are not aligned with our business standards or that are inappropriate for the donations to the movement we are seeking or the products that we sell.

Please note that this list is not exhaustive and that we reserve the right to decline your application at our sole discretion, without providing a rejection reason.

2. Commissions and payouts

Standard commission rate is 20% of each donation (“payments” “purchase”) to FOTOC and 20% of the profit margin on our products such as t-shirts, caps, promotional items, etc. made by customers through your referral link. The commission is applied only for one-time payments. For additional or recurring payments; commissions will only be generated if customers pay through your referral link.

Standard cookie duration is 30 days. Therefore, the customers have a 30 day time frame from the moment they clicked on your affiliate link to decide whether to purchase from FOTOC or not. If they purchase after the cookie has expired, commissions will unfortunately not be registered (unless customers use your affiliate link again).

Moreover, the commission will go to the first affiliate whose link was clicked (if the purchase is completed in the 30-day time frame).

Example: if the customer clicks first on your affiliate link and later on, when he or she decides to purchase, uses another affiliate’s link, the commission goes to you.

There are no refunds for donations and our products are fulfilled by Printful® which policy is: “Printful only offers refunds for damaged or mislabeled products, not for buyer’s remorse”, so FOTOC only offers to exchange the damaged or mislabeled product our customer’s order from us; therefore your commissions should not be affected in this regard (there may be some exceptions).

Minimum payout is $100 USD. Payments will be made in USD into your bank account monthly (Payments to Bitcoin accounts coming), between the 15th day of the month and the last day of the month. In order for our accounting department to pay you, we need you to provide us with an invoice reflecting the respective amount due that month, by sending it via email between the 1st and 14th day of that month.

Example: by March 31st you have an amount of $250 USD accepted and unpaid commissions in your balance. Between 1-14th of April you send us an invoice for the $250 USD. We transfer the amount to your bank account between 15-30th of April.

If you wish to reach a certain higher amount before getting paid, you can wait up to 3 months before invoicing us.

You have the full obligation to comply with any laws and taxes you might be subject to in your country of residence as a result of rendering affiliate services to us.

We reserve the right to lower or increase our standard commission rates at any moment and for any reason. You shall be notified via email 30 days in advance before such changes go into force.

All commissions are subject to approval in order to be subsequently paid. Each commission’s status will be available in your affiliate program dashboard as “Pending”, “Unpaid”, “Rejected” or “Paid”.

You are allowed to use your own affiliate link to make purchases and donate to FOTOC.
