JVZOO AFFILIATE AGREEMENT
This JVZoo Affiliate Agreement (this "Agreement") is entered into by and between BBC Systems Inc., a Florida corporation, d/b/a JVZoo or JVZoo.com ("JVZoo" or "Us" or "We"), and you, as an affiliate participating in the JVZoo network and associated services ("Affiliate" or "You").
You must agree to abide by the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement in order to participate in the JVZoo network, access the JVZoo Product Library, or otherwise use the services provided by JVZoo. Please read this Agreement carefully before registering FOR the JVZoo Affiliate program. By signing up for the JVZoo Affiliate Program, You indicate Your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If You do not accept this Agreement, do not register for the JVZoo Affiliate Program.
1. Definitions. The following is a list of defined terms used throughout this Agreement.
a. Affiliate. An "Affiliate" is an individual or entity that registers with JVZoo and agrees to display Links (hereinafter defined) and otherwise market products or services for Sellers (hereinafter defined) in order to generate approved sales by such Sellers, in exchange for commissions.
b. Insertion Order. An "Insertion Order" is the form describing the particular specifications by which a Seller is willing to allow an Affiliate to market its products or services. Insertion Orders may specify types of media used (e.g., Links or banner ads), details of approved sales, and commissions available for such approved sales. Insertion Orders may appear under a Seller's page in the Product Library or may be supplied separately to an Affiliate.
c. JVZoo Knowledgebase. "JVZoo Knowledgebase" is the information available at https://jvzoo.zendesk.com/hc/en-us.
d. JVZooPay. "JVZooPay" is a service offered by JVZoo through which commissions attributable to Affiliates can be facilitated in accordance with the terms and conditions as set forth herein, in the sole and absolute discretion of JVZoo.
e. Link. A "Link" is a hyperlink placed by an Affiliate that, when clicked on, serves the Seller's website to the internet user's browser. The Link may be in the form of text, a product image, a button, a banner, or any other format acceptable to the Seller and defined in an applicable Insertion Order.
f. Product Library. The "Product Library" is the section of the JVZoo.com website where Sellers list the products or services for which they are willing to enter into an arrangement with an Affiliate for purposes of allowing that Affiliate to post Links and otherwise market the Seller's products or services.
g. Seller. A "Seller" is an individual or entity that registers with JVZoo and agrees to pay a commission for approved sales to a customer or user generated by an Affiliate registered with JVZoo. A Seller may also be referred to as a "Vendor."
As part of the Affiliate Program and the service offered on the Site, JVZoo may publish ratings for the Affiliates and/or the Sellers participating in the Affiliate Program, based on information supplied by the Affiliate or the Seller during the registration process and on information relating to sales performance for such Affiliate or Seller. Such ratings are based on criteria chosen by JVZoo, in its sole discretion. You acknowledge and agree that JVZoo has the right to evaluate information relating to You and to publish on the Site the ratings for You, based on the criteria, information, and methods JVZoo chooses, in its sole discretion. In no event does JVZoo warrant or guarantee correctness, comprehensiveness, completeness, accuracy, timeliness, or fitness for a particular use or purpose of any ratings on the Site, nor does JVZoo warrant or guarantee any results or performance based on any particular ratings. Such ratings are provided solely as a tool to aid Affiliates and Sellers in their decision about who they would like to work. You are solely responsible for investigating and determining the Sellers with which You choose to work and for the consequences of such determination. In no way shall any rating be deemed an endorsement by JVZoo of any particular Seller.
You agree that You will not intentionally solicit any Seller directly or indirectly via an ad agency, broker, or any other person or entity. JVZoo will promptly reply in writing to any inquiries received from Affiliate regarding the status of any person or entity as a Seller registered with JVZoo so as to aid Affiliate in its efforts to comply with the non-solicitation provisions of this Agreement. Because JVZoo will be irreparably harmed by Affiliate's conduct and because the true extent of such harm will be impossible to quantify, monetary damages will not be an adequate remedy for any such conduct. Affiliate agrees that JVZoo may be entitled to injunctive relief without the necessity of posting bond or required demonstration of failure of monetary damages. Such injunctive relief is in addition to and not exclusive of all other rights and remedies available to JVZoo. The ability to seek and obtain injunctive relief is a bargained for provision of this Agreement.

Additionally, You must comply with all the requirements for creating a valid JVZoo approved payment processing account and/or a JVZooPay approved payment processing account, as applicable, and linking such account(s) with the JVZoo payment system, as detailed in Section 6. JVZoo reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to (i) deny any person or entity the right to register with JVZoo or participate in the Affiliate Program and/or (ii) terminate any person or entity's participation in the Affiliate Program at any time.
As part of the registration process, You will select a username and password combination that You use to access Your account within the Affiliate Program (Your "JVZoo Account"). You shall provide JVZoo with accurate, complete and updated registration information. You may not select the name of another person or entity with the intent of impersonating that person or entity or deceiving Sellers , other Affiliates, or other users as to Your true identity.

You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of Your username and password and are solely responsible for all usage and activity on or through Your JVZoo Account, including use of Your JVZoo Account by a third party authorized by You.

7. Seller Links. As a registered Affiliate in the JVZoo Affiliate Program, You will have the opportunity to arrange with Sellers to place Links, banner ads, and related materials advertising the Seller's products or services on Your websites or in other media approved by the Seller. You are free to place such Links and related materials on Your websites or other approved media as You see fit, provided that You comply with all requirements posted by the Seller in the Product Library or in the relevant Insertion Order. Any page containing a Seller's Link, banner, or materials must be written in English. Affiliates are prohibited from displaying Sellers' Links or materials on newsgroups, chat rooms, unsolicited emails, ICQs, message boards, banner networks, hit farms, counters, or guestbooks. Affiliates are also prohibited from displaying a Seller's web site in any way that is not the result of a direct click by the end-user. Desktop advertising schemes are strictly prohibited, including any and all third-party advertising platforms that use a desktop application to display advertisements in any form.
8. Commission Fee. Each Seller with whom You have been approved to sell such Seller's products or services has agreed to pay the percentage specified by the Seller in the Product Library or in the relevant Insertion Order for each completed sale that You send through the Links or materials posted on Your websites, and in other approved media (the "Commission Fee"). If a Seller does not require that a Commission Fee is only available to You through JVZooPay (as detailed in Section 9 below), and a Seller does not elect to use a delayed payment plan to pay Commission Fees to an Affiliate (as hereafter detailed), You will receive a Commission Fee attributable to You once a customer or user completes an order form on the Seller's checkout page for the relevant product or service, completes the relevant form on the JVZoo supported payment processor website, and remits full payment for the product or service ordered from the Seller. For each such order that completes the preceding process, You will receive the percentage specified by the Seller in the Product Library or in the relevant Insertion Order for each such completed sale. Alternatively, if a Seller not using JVZooPay elects a delayed payment plan for payment of a Commission Fee to You, Seller will be responsible for paying such Commission Fee to You for each completed sale within seventy (70) days of the date the customer or user completes an order form on the Seller's checkout page for the relevant product or service, completes the relevant form on the JVZoo supported payment processor website, and remits full payment for the product or service ordered from the Seller.
9. JVZooPay Commission Fee. A Seller may designate in the Product Library or in the relevant Insertion Order that the Commission Fee is only available to You through JVZooPay. In such case, a Commission Fee attributable to You will be credited to Your JVZooPay account balance once a customer or user completes an order form on the Seller's checkout page for the relevant product or service, completes the relevant form on Your selected JVZooPay supported payment processor's website, and remits full payment for the product or service ordered from the Seller. A Commission Fee in JVZooPay attributable to You will first become reflected in Your JVZooPay available balance within thirty (30) days of the date such Commission Fees were credited to Your JVZooPay account balance. The length of this delay will depend, in JVZoo's sole and absolute discretion, upon such factors as the length of time You have had a JVZoo Account, the number of sales You have made with the Affiliate Program, and Your refund and/or chargeback rate. In order to request a payment from Your JVZooPay available balance, (i) You must have sales from at least 5 unique users or customers of JVZoo; (ii) Your available balance must be greater than any minimum amount specified in the JVZoo Knowledgebase, which amount shall not be less than $50.00; and (iii) You must provide any additional information regarding Your business and/or identity that is requested by JVZoo. Even if You satisfy all of the foregoing requirements in this Section 9 and without limiting JVZoo's other remedies under this Agreement or by law, JVZoo reserves the right at any time and in its absolute and sole discretion to (x) deny a request for a payment from Your JVZooPay available balance due to pending investigations or violations of JVZoo's Terms of Service or this Agreement or other activities that JVZoo deems harmful to JVZoo or its customers or users, or (y) offset against Your JVZooPay available balance any amounts previously received by You that are the subject of a refund or chargeback from a customer or user. If your JVZooPay available balance is not sufficient to fully satisfy any amounts owed by You to JVZoo, Your JVZooPay available balance will reflect such deficit. If Your JVZooPay available balance reflects a deficit of up to $-50.00, future Commission Fees attributable to You in JVZooPay will be deducted until such deficit is eliminated. If Your JVZooPay available balance reflects a deficit of $-50.00 or greater for more than forty-eight (48) hours, You will be required to provide Your valid credit card information, which You represent and warrant is valid, accurate, and complete, and You specifically authorize JVZoo to use such credit card information to secure payment to eliminate the deficit in Your JVZooPay available balance. Further, if Your JVZooPay available balance reflects a deficit in any amount for longer than thirty (30) days and You do not provide Your valid credit card information to eliminate such deficit, You will be placed on administrative probation with JVZoo. If the deficit in Your JVZooPay available balance is not eliminated within sixty (60) days of being placed on administrative probation, You will be permanently prohibited from utilizing JVZoo in any manner, including but not limited to, utilizing a JVZoo Account, and JVZoo may seek all remedies under this Agreement or by law to collect all outstanding amounts owed by You to JVZoo.
10. SPAM. SPAM, OR UNSOLICITED COMMERCIAL EMAIL, IS ABSOLUTELY PROHIBITED. We will terminate Your Account and immediately dismiss you from the Affiliate Program if We determine that You have sent SPAM or Unsolicited Commercial Email, whether in connection with the Affiliate Program or otherwise, and You will not be entitled to any payment or reimbursement for funds remaining in Your JVZoo supported payment processing account or Your JVZooPay supported payment processing account. Further, You agree to comply with all U.S. state and federal SPAM laws, including, but not limited to, the Federal CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, as amended from time to time, and any rules or regulations promulgated under the Federal Trade Commission or any other federal agency thereunder.
