1) Register for the Program at www.activerideshop.com/jointhecrew
We understand that you may use the Program through your own URL, website, social media account, or other digital form of communication, or simply by sharing your Code via email, text, or otherwise (collectively, “your website”) and your website and use of the Code must at all times comply with this Agreement.
In addition to any other requirements we may impose from time to time, and without limiting our ability to reject an application for any or no reason, at a minimum, to be eligible to participate in the Program, your website must:
- Have a top level domain name;
- Be fully functional, without any “under construction” or similar sites or sections; and
- Be aesthetically pleasing, with no banner farms or pages full of affiliate links.
Please read this Agreement carefully, and please consult with your counsel if you have any questions at all. It is very, very important to note that the failure to comply with this Agreement, whether on purpose or by accident, may result in the forfeiture of payment that would otherwise be due to you. Our decision is absolute and final as to any payments made hereunder, and we reserve the right in our sole and absolute discretion to forfeit payment, even if you believe it has already been accrued. Compliance with the terms of this Agreement is a material condition of receiving any payments hereunder.
Please contact us if you have any questions about this or any part of this Agreement via email at [email].
After receiving your application to register for the Program, we will review your application and notify you by email if your application has been approved, with your Code. Please allow up to 72 hours for your application to be reviewed. We reserve the right to reject any application; however we encourage you to contact us if you feel we have made an incorrect decision. Although we make the effort to review and respond to each application to participate in the Program, sometimes applications do fall through the cracks. You are not enrolled in the Program until you receive a specific approval from us. In the event you do not receive any response, you are not yet enrolled in the Program. Please feel free to follow up if you have not received a response after 72 business hours. You may not at any time promote yourself or your website as being a part of the Program unless and until you have received an affirmative confirmation that you were accepted into the Program, with your Code. You must be honest in your application, and any inaccurate or untruthful representations in your application may lead to your rejection from the Program, or your suspension from the Program, or further penalties as we see fit in our sole and absolute discretion.
The Program permits you to monetize the Code by sharing the Code with your friends and family or other third parties. The Code must be exactly as we provide to be included in the Program. The Code will link to our website, or our Goods that are offered for sale to end customers.
When customers click a Code to successfully purchase Goods, you may be eligible to receive Points as a result of that sale, and as set forth in more detail in this Agreement. We need to ensure that you are aware that the Points are not guaranteed and you cannot rely on receiving the Points.
In order for Points to accrue, the sale of Goods must originate from your Code, and the sale must be to a New Customer. If a customer has our product in their e-basket, and they clink your Code after the fact, you will not be eligible for Points.
Your own purchase of our product is not subject to Points, nor are sales to anyone at the billing or shipping address you provide in your Account.
Duplicate or fraudulent transactions, as determined solely by us, are not eligible for any Points, may be removed and the transaction may be reversed. Points are a one-time payment per New Customers using your Code for completed transactions.
[Discuss timing and how Points are redeemed.]
We will award Points for a completed transaction placed within the cookie life of ninety (90) days, unless the customer makes a purchase after clicking on another affiliates link or a link or advertisement placed by us. The Point redemption rates are subject to change at any time, in our sole discretion, without notice, however we will make a reasonable attempt to notify you of the change.
Cookie life begins when a user clicks your Code and enters our site. Points are only awarded if it can be tracked to you with your Code. We cannot track referrals for users who do not accept cookies or if they delete our cookie. While the cookie life is 90 days, the cookie may continue to track all orders for the duration of your participation in the Program.
You must comply with this Agreement. You must promptly provide us with any information that we request to verify your compliance with this Agreement.
If you violate this Agreement, we reserve the right to withhold (and you agree you will not be eligible to receive) any and all Points or other amounts otherwise payable to you under this Agreement, whether or not directly related to such violation.
We reserve the right to reverse Points and/or orders due to order cancellations, duplicate tracking, returns, disputed charges, and Program violations as outlined in this Agreement. All decisions regarding Points is at ACTIVE’S sole and absolute discretion. ACTIVE has broad discretion to determine how and when to award Points, and in the event we believe that you are violating this Agreement, we may hold back some or all Points that have already accrued, or forfeit some or all Points.
Additionally, if we ask you for clarification or more information on any orders or clicks that we suspect may be in violation of our terms and conditions; we expect that you will respond in a timely and honest manner. Below are violations of our communications policy:
Upon your acceptance into the program, if ever, the Code will be made available to you through the Program interface. Your acceptance in our Program means you agree to and abide by the following:
If you are enrolled in our Program and participate in paid search engine advertising or PPC, you must adhere to our PPC guidelines as follows:
Promotion on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms is permitted following these general guidelines:
If you are enrolled in our Program and participate in social advertising, you must adhere to our social advertising guidelines as follows:
If you are enrolled in our Program and your website promotes coupon codes, you must adhere to our Coupon Guidelines as follows:
All transactions that utilize a non-authorized coupon code during purchase will not be granted Points for that transaction. Valid codes are defined as codes that are made available to the affiliate channel in general, through newsletters or the Deals Database in Shareasale, to that affiliate directly/privately or short term site-wide offers. Publishing coupon codes obtained from customer e-mails, social media, print media, or any other publication by our website other than those codes that are displayed on our website is strictly prohibited. Coupon codes that are not valid, phony, or expired will not be given Points on these orders.
In addition, if you publish a prohibited coupon code, you will be notified of the violation and will forfeit all future Points until an ACTIVE team member has determined that your website is no longer publishing the prohibited coupon code. All valid transactions without a coupon code used are considered subject to Points.
Promoting us through a sub-affiliate network is permitted, however you must be completely transparent with regards to where traffic from your sub-affiliates originated. Sub-affiliate networks must ensure that all sub-affiliates promoting the Program adhere to our Program terms and conditions. This includes restrictions on advertising through toolbars, browser extensions, and through any paid placements such as a pay-per-click campaigns. Sub-affiliate networks must also receive approval prior to allowing any type of coupon sub-affiliate to promote the Program.
Failure to comply with our sub-affiliate network terms may result in a loss and/or reduction of Points from sales made through any sub-affiliate that does not comply with our program terms.
All sales will remain in a “sales pending period” and will not lock until at least 30 days following the date of transaction. ACTIVE reserves the right to change the date, or hold Points or payments for longer for any or no reason.
Use of any of our trademark-related terms as part of the domain or sub-domain for your website is strictly prohibited (e.g. ACTIVE.website.com or www.ACTIVE-coupons.com).
Prohibited trademark-related terms and targeted interests include, but are not limited to: ACTIVE, ACTIVE CLOTHING, ACTIVE STORE, ACTIVE RIDE SHOP, and any/all closely related variations or misspellings.
You shall not create, publish, distribute, or print any written material that makes reference to our Program without first submitting that material to us and receiving our prior written consent. If you intend to promote our program via e-mail campaigns, you must adhere to the following:
Abide by the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 (Public Law No. 108-187) with respect to our Program.
E-mail must be sent on your behalf and must not imply that the e-mail is being sent on behalf of ACTIVE.
As an internet marketer you should be familiar with disclosure requirements by the FTC. You shall include a disclosure statement within any and all pages, blog/posts, or social media posts where affiliate links for our affiliate program are posted as an endorsement or review, and where it is not clear that the link is a paid advertisement. This disclosure statement should be clear and concise, stating that we are compensating you for your review or endorsement.
Disclosures must be made as close as possible to the claims.
Disclosures should be placed above the fold; scrolling should not be necessary to find the disclosure. (e.g. Disclosure should be visible before the jump).
Pop-up disclosures are prohibited.
For more information about FTC disclosure requirements, please review the FTC's "Dot Com Disclosures" Guidelines at http://www.ftc.gov/os/2013/03/130312dotcomdisclosures.pdf ; and the FTC's Endorsement Guidelines at
As a condition of its participation in the Program, if you are a corporate entity with a place of business in one of the following states and/or of you are an individual who is a resident of one of the following states agrees that its activities on behalf of ACTIVE shall be limited to providing the Code on your website to our website: Arkansas, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, Tennessee and Vermont (hereinafter “Non-Solicit States”). You acknowledge that under current laws in these Non-Solicit States, solicitation and promotional activities by you may render ACTIVE liable for collecting sales tax on all sales to customers in these states. Therefore, as a condition of participation in the Program, you are prohibited from engaging in any solicitation activities in the Non-Solicit States intended to refer potential customers to ACTIVE, including, but not limited to: (i) distributing flyers, coupons, newsletters and other printed materials, or electronic equivalents of such materials; (ii) engaging in verbal solicitation, including in-person referrals or initiating telephone calls; and (iii) sending emails, text messages or maintaining social network sites intended, directly or indirectly, to solicit or refer customers to ACTIVE. If you reside in a Non-Solicit State, we require you to provide ACTIVE with a written statement of compliance with this provision on an annual basis (by May 31 of each year). If you fail to provide this written statement of compliance, or if ACTIVE learns you have not complied with your obligations, we will remove you from the Program. We reserve the right to require you to provide a written statement of non-solicitation should events require, including but not limited to, if the state of your residence adopts a law placing limits on solicitation, or if you relocate to a Non-Solicit State. You agree to cooperate with completing any forms which may be required for tax purposes, including statements or certifications regarding its activities. You further acknowledge that tax laws are subject to change at any time and such changes may render participants in certain states ineligible for continued participation in the Program. We reserve the right to remove you from the Program at any time for any reason or to revise this understanding prohibiting affiliate solicitation on its behalf.
We do not make any representation, warranty, or covenant regarding the amount of traffic or Points you can expect at any time in connection with the Program, and we will not be liable for any actions you undertake based on your expectations.
The term of this Agreement will begin upon your registration on or use of the Program and will end when terminated by either you or us. Either you or we may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause, by giving the other party written notice of termination.
WE WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR ANY MATTER DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY RELATING TO THE CREATION, MAINTENANCE, OR OPERATION OF YOUR WEBSITE OR YOUR VIOLATION OF THIS AGREEMENT, OR THE PROGRAM AND YOU AGREE TO DEFEND, INDEMNIFY, AND HOLD US, OUR PARTNERS, AND OUR AND THEIR RESPECTIVE EMPLOYEES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AND REPRESENTATIVES, HARMLESS FROM AND AGAINST ALL CLAIMS, DAMAGES, LOSSES, LIABILITIES, COSTS, AND EXPENSES (INCLUDING ATTORNEYS’ FEES) RELATING TO (A) YOUR WEBSITE OR ANY MATERIALS THAT APPEAR ON YOUR WEBSITE OR SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS, INCLUDING THE COMBINATION OF YOUR WEBSITE OR THOSE MATERIALS WITH OTHER APPLICATIONS, CONTENT, OR PROCESSES, (B) THE USE, DEVELOPMENT, DESIGN, MANUFACTURE, PRODUCTION, ADVERTISING, PROMOTION, OR MARKETING OF YOUR WEBSITE OR ANY MATERIALS THAT APPEAR ON OR WITHIN YOUR WEBSITE, (C) YOUR USE OF ANY CONTENT, WHETHER OR NOT SUCH USE IS AUTHORIZED BY OR VIOLATES THIS AGREEMENT, ANY OPERATIONAL DOCUMENTATION, OR APPLICABLE LAW, (D) YOUR VIOLATION OF ANY TERM OR CONDITION OF THIS AGREEMENT (INCLUDING ANY PROGRAM POLICY), OR (E) YOUR OR YOUR EMPLOYEES' OR CONTRACTORS’ NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT.
Any dispute relating in any way to the Program or this Agreement will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law and the laws of the state of California, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern this Agreement and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and us.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of this Agreement as a court would.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, we may seek injunctive or other relief in any state, federal, or national court of competent jurisdiction for any actual or alleged infringement of our or any other person or entity’s intellectual property or proprietary rights. You further acknowledge and agree that our rights in the Content are of a special, unique, extraordinary character, giving them peculiar value, the loss of which cannot be readily estimated or adequately compensated for in monetary damages.
We reserve the right to modify any of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement at any time and in our sole discretion by posting a change notice or revised Agreement, on our website or by sending notice of such modification to you by email to the primary email address then-currently associated with your Associates account (any such change by email will be effective on the date specified in such email but will in no event be less than two business days after the date the email is sent). YOUR CONTINUED PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM FOLLOWING THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF SUCH NOTICE WILL CONSTITUTE YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE MODIFICATIONS. IF ANY MODIFICATION IS UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU, YOUR ONLY RECOURSE IS TO TERMINATE THIS AGREEMENT.
Please contact us if you have any questions about this or any part of this Agreement via email at ________.
I have read and understand the FTC requirements related to affiliate disclosures. It is my responsibility to know and understand FTC requirements, and the below are provided merely for my convenience. I will seek independent counsel as necessary so that I may comply with all FTC requirements, and I will review the FTC requirements at https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/ftcs-endorsement-guides-what-people-are-asking.
In material consideration for being an affiliate in connection with the Program, you agree to comply with ACTIVE’S Trademark Guidelines (“Guidelines”).
ACTIVE may change these Guidelines at any time and will provide you with an updated copy of these Guidelines.
The trademarks owned or used by ACTIVE, as well as any other trade dress owned by or used by ACTIVE are the “Trademarks”. ACTIVE routinely creates photographs and images of ACTIVE’S products, goods and clients (“Photographs”) used to promote, market and/or sell ACTIVE’S goods. ACTIVE sometimes grants its referral program participants limited licenses to access and use the Photographs solely under this Agreement. Based on your relationship with ACTIVE, you may be granted a non-exclusive, limited, revocable license to use the Photographs, strictly subject to your compliance with these Guidelines.
If you do not agree with these Guidelines, you cannot use or access the Photographs or the Trademarks.
In the event any Trademarks are licensed to ACTIVE, the trademark owners’ terms and conditions take precedence over these Guidelines and you understand and agree that the trademark owners’ terms and conditions may be more restrictive than these Guidelines.
Email. During and after the term, you will not use any Trademarks in connection with an email account without ACTIVE’S prior written approval. If you set up an email account incorporating the Trademarks, you will do so only as an agent of ACTIVE, and you assign and will assign and transfer the email account and any passwords to ACTIVE at ACTIVE’S request. If you fail to assign and transfer the email account and any passwords to ACTIVE within a reasonable time from ACTIVE’S request, you hereby grant ACTIVE a limited Power of Attorney to transfer the email account and will execute any documents reasonably necessary to effect the transfer.
Websites, Domain Names and Keywords. During and after the Term, you will not use any Trademarks in connection with any websites, domain names and/or keywords without ACTIVE’S prior written approval. If you register or use any websites, domain names or keywords incorporating the Trademarks, you do so only as an agent of ACTIVE, and you assign and will assign and transfer the websites, domain names and keywords, and any passwords to ACTIVE at ACTIVE’S request. If you fail to assign and transfer a website, domain name and/or keyword, and any passwords to ACTIVE within a reasonable time from ACTIVE’S request, you hereby grant ACTIVE a limited Power of Attorney to transfer the website, domain name or keyword and you will execute any documents reasonably necessary to effect the transfer.
Social Media Account. If you register any social media accounts incorporating the Trademarks (i.e. a Twitter account or a Facebook account), you may only use the account during the Term. After the Term, you must transfer the account, and any passwords, to ACTIVE. You assign and will assign and transfer the social media account to ACTIVE at ACTIVE’S request at any time after the Term. If you fail to transfer and assign any social media accounts, and any passwords, to ACTIVE within a reasonable time from ACTIVE’S request, you hereby grant ACTIVE a limited Power of Attorney to transfer the social media account and you will execute any documents necessary to effect the transfer.
Advertising and Promotion of Goods. If you use the Trademarks in any way and ACTIVE believes that the use does not represent the quality of the brand, ACTIVE will advise you to remove and/or modify the use of the Trademarks. You must comply with any such request within five (5) business days of notice from ACTIVE.
Use of Trademarks After Term: You will cease all uses of the Trademarks as soon as this Agreement has ended, whether by expiration or termination. You will not make any further use of the Trademarks after the Term has ended.
Use of Similar Trademarks. During or after the Term, you agree not to use any trademarks or trade dress that is confusingly similar to any of the Trademarks.
Modifications. You agree to use the Trademarks only as set forth herein. All rights in and to the Trademarks are retained exclusively by ACTIVE. Any of my use of the Trademarks inures to the benefit of ACTIVE. You will not modify, change or alter the Trademarks or the Photographs or any uses of the Trademarks or Photographs.
Limited Use. You will only use the Photographs and the Trademarks under this Agreement.
Cessation of Use. Upon receipt of written notification from ACTIVE, you will immediately stop all use of the Photographs and the Trademarks and remove all Photographs and Trademarks.
Ownership. You agree that, as between you and ACTIVE, ACTIVE owns all right, title and interest in and to the Photographs and the Trademarks and any derivatives of the Photographs.
License. You agree that you are using the Photographs and the Trademarks under a limited license from ACTIVE and any of your use of the Photographs and Trademarks inures to the benefit of ACTIVE.
Not Transferrable. You will not share access to the Photographs or the Trademarks with any third party without ACTIVE’S prior written approval.
Restriction and Termination. ACTIVE may restrict or terminate your access to the Photographs and Trademarks at any time.
