The affiliate program allows our affiliates to make profit by referring customers to AvaHost through a link or banner on their web sites. Referrals will be counted whenever the customer purchases a web hosting account with us. Referrals will be paid for the customer's first year of hosting only, and will not be paid for subsequent renewals of the same service.
Commissions will be paid once a month. For an AvaHost to receive a commission, the referred account must remain active for a minimum of 40 days. You cannot refer yourself. You will not receive a commission on your own accounts.
Revocation of Affiliate Status
Your affiliate application and status in the Program may be suspended or terminated for any of the following reasons:
- Inappropriate advertisements (false claims, misleading hyperlinks, etc.)
- Spamming (mass email, mass newsgroup posting, etc.)
- Advertising on sites containing or promoting illegal activities
- Violation of intellectual property rights
You may use graphic and text links both on your website and within in your email messages. You may also advertise the AvaHost site "offline" in classified ads, magazines, and newspapers. You may use the graphics and text provided to you by us, or you may create your own images.
When a visitor clicks through your affiliate link, a cookie is set in their browser that contains your affiliate ID. Also, their IP address is tracked in the database along with your affiliate ID. When this person decides to buy a product or service from AvaHost, the script will look for this cookie and try to match their IP address to identify the affiliate who will be awarded the commission. Visitors sent through your affiliate link may make a purchase later in time and the commission will still be awarded if the cookie is present in their browser and/or the are using the same IP address as the one logged in the database.
AvaHost will not be liable for indirect or accidental damages (loss of revenue, commissions) due to affiliate tracking failures, loss of database files, and any results of "intents of harm" to the Program and/or to our website(s). We do not make any expressed or implied warranties with respect to the Affiliate Program and/or the products or services sold by AvaHost. We make no claim that the operation of the AvaHost Program and/or our website(s) will be error-free and we will not be liable for any interruptions or errors.
