All the Best
The following are the terms and conditions of participating in the Garlic Gold® Affiliate Program. "Affiliate" refers to yourself, and "Seven Oaks Farm" refers to the manufacturer of Garlic Gold, Seven Oaks Ranch, located at 2568 Channel Drive, Ventura CA 93003 and available by phone at 805-641-0441.
Payments and Commissions
Seven Oaks Farm will pay the Affiliate a 10% commission on all “Product Sales” (excluding shipping & handling) which are identified by a visitor from Affiliate using their unique Affiliate Coupon Code (the “Coupon Code”). If that customer referred from the Affiliate repurchases at least once every 12 months a 10% commission (the “Commission”) on all Product Sales will continued to be paid REGARDLESS if they use your unique Affiliate Coupon Code on their subsequent purchases because you introduced them to us.
You are aware that Coupon Codes will be periodically updated, as often as every 30 days, to provide different benefits to the customers the Affiliate refers to Seven Oaks Farm and who purchase on the Garlic Gold website which will insure your customers receive great promotions because of you (e.g. some months they’ll receive shipping discounts, other months they’ll receive percentage discounts and sometimes could receive both). The key point to be aware of is that once a customer has used your unique Affiliate Coupon Code they will be tracked from that point onward in order to provide you with a commission for their sales provided they purchase at least once every 12 consecutive months. What they receive when they purchase will depend upon which promotion Seven Oaks Farm is running at that time, in Seven Oaks Farm’ exclusive determination, and will be changed from time to time.
In addition to a Commission being paid for sales by individuals that you refer to us by using the Coupon Code, Seven Oaks Farm will also pay a 5% Commission on all sales (excluding shipping & handling) to any wholesale customer who purchases directly from Seven Oaks Farm through the website, or otherwise, where the product is shipped directly to that wholesale customer, provided that the prospective wholesale customer is “cleared” for an approach by the Manager of Affiliate Relations (the “Affiliate Manager”) prior to initial contact. The process of “clearing” a prospective wholesale customer is to contact the Affiliate Manager by email with the name and location of the prospective customer, and receiving written clearance back from the Affiliate Manager that a contact with the prospective customer is approved.
Affiliate commissions shall be paid by company check for Commissions earned in a given calendar month, calculated approximately 15 days after the end of the month to which the Commission relates, less any sums held back for sales which may be deemed by Seven Oaks Farm to not yet be “final.” Seven Oaks Farm reserves the right to modify the payment schedule, and all other terms of this Affiliate Agreement, at any time at their sole discretion as set forth below.
Although the Affiliate Program is not limited to the U.S. all Commissions will be paid in U.S. dollars. If a qualifying sale is canceled or refunded, the related Commission will be deducted from the next monthly Commission payment.
Independent Contractor Status
Affiliates are NOT employees of Seven Oaks Farm and are responsible for their own hours of work, places and methods of working and otherwise controlling their own behavior, including being solely responsible for all local, state, or country taxes of any type. All Affiliate applications are subject to approval by Seven Oaks Farm, and any such application once accepted can be revoked at any time, for any reason, at Seven Oaks Farm’ exclusive discretion. Term "Affiliate" shall not be interpreted as a legal partner or affiliate, but simply as an independent contractor for Seven Oaks Farm under this Agreement.
Affiliate Coupon Code
As noted above, you will be issued a unique Affiliate Coupon Code" which allows Seven Oaks Farm to identify visitors as originating from you. These visitors are tracked by initial use of the Affiliate coupon code and sales are recorded with your Affiliate account. To receive the above referenced Commissions, the first order from a referral of yours must use your distinct Affiliate Coupon Code. The coupon itself may be issued to prospective customers verbally or in various written or electronic forms such as a Facebook posting, banner, image, or text link.
