The Chefcipes Affiliate Program enables any member of Chefcipes Affiliate Program with a confirmed profile (the “Affiliate”) to be rewarded for subscriptions made by his/her Users. Every Affiliate is assigned a unique code (a "Refferal ID"). The “Affiliate Link” is an internet hyperlink or web link pointing to the Website that contains a Affiliate’ Referral ID. A “User” is anyone who subscribes to a plan on the Website after acting upon a recommendation made by the Affiliate and clicking on a Affiliate’ Link. The “Affiliate Cookie” is a web browser cookie left on a User’s web browser by the Website in response to the User’s clicking through a Affiliate’s Link.
If You refer a User to the Website, and the User clicks through Your Affiliate Link to the Website, thereby identifying You as the Affiliate via Your Referral ID, Your account will be credited as a commissionable account. User fees, as described below, will be credited to Your account.
The Affiliate relationship between the Affiliate and its User is activated the first time the User clicks on the Affiliate’s Link. If the User makes a purchase within 60 days of the Affiliate activation, the Affiliate will be rewarded with a commission on said purchases by this User. If the User makes no purchase during this 60-day period, the relationship between the Affiliate and the User will expire.
When a User clicks on a Affiliate’s link, the Website attempts to store the Affiliate Cookie on the User’s web browser. If the User’s browser does not accept cookies, or if the Affiliate Cookie is removed or has expired, the User will not be identified as Your User. In order for Users to be recognized as Your Users, and for User fees to accrue, Users must have an unexpired Affiliate Cookie in their browser when they complete their purchases.
The Affiliate’s revenues are held in an account exclusively for their Affiliate Program commissions and are calculated as a percentage of the Chefcipes commission on each purchase made by the User. The Affiliate may receive revenues from an unlimited number of Users into their Affiliate Program account.
The revenue percentage will be 20% on initial subscriptions and their recurring monthly amounts.
The Affiliate may request withdrawals from the Affiliate Program account any time the account total is $50 or more. Payment of any such balance, requested before the end of any month, will be made by the fifteenth of the following month.
The Affiliate commission payment will be issued in United States Dollars (US$) through the payment method the Affiliate has specified in the Affiliate Program account. If Chefcipes makes an overpayment of commissions to the Affiliate for any reason, Chefcipes reserves the right to deduct the amount of such overpayment from the Affiliate’s account and/or to require the immediate repayment of such overpaid Affiliate’s commissions.
Chefcipes may modify reward percentages and/or payment schedules at any time and notify the Affiliate by a posting the modified percentages or schedule on the Chefcipes Affiliate Program Agreement page of the Website. If Chefcipes modifies any percentage, only Your commission earned after the effective date of change will be affected by the changed percentage.
The Affiliate is not allowed to use the Referral or API programs while simultaneously using the Affiliate Program.
The Affiliate shall not be affiliated to himself/herself. The Affiliate is not authorized to make any commitment on behalf of Chefcipes. The Affiliate shall not reward or pay directly or indirectly in any way other parties to influence them to become Users or to otherwise increase his or her Affiliate' rewards.
The Affiliate shall agree not to buy or bid on any Chefcipes -trademarked company names or any spelling variations of those names, or the same with various spellings or similar terms, etc., for any search-engine keywords, domain names, other search terms and/or titles. The Affiliate shall further agree that he/she will never outrank or outbid Chefcipes on any web or search-engine keywords.
The Affiliate shall agree not to use, cloak or mask any domain names owned by Chefcipes LLC. for any display URL listings in paid search campaigns. The Affiliate shall agree never to create any direct link to Chefcipes.com or any subsidiary pages in the Chefcipes.com website or any other websites owned by Chefcipes in paid search campaigns.
