The TheBookYard Affiliate Terms

By filling out the signup form you acknowledge that you have read the terms and conditions below for thebookyard.com AFFILIATE Program and that you understand, and agree with them.

1. Joining the Program
By filling out the signup form you will automatically become an AFFILIATE and are bound by the terms of this agreement. Your participation in the program is solely for this purpose: to legally advertise our website to receive a commission on products purchased by your referral individuals. By joining this program, you agree to receiving affiliate email news bulletins and communications from us as required.

2. Payment Schedule

  1. Validation period - all AFFILIATE monies due for orders generated as a result of AFFILIATE links/Web Site will be held for 30 days after the Shipping Date of an order. Payments are only made for completed sales that have not been cancelled or returned within this period. Orders are typically shipped 1-3 days after an order is placed. This allows us ample time to compensate for returns, exchanges or canceled orders. Payments will be calculated and sent out to the AFFILIATE during the last week of any given month according to the terms and conditions of this document.
  2. Eligible payments - Orders placed by customers holding trade accounts are not eligible for AFFILIATE commission. Commission is applied to the net product value of eligible orders i.e. excluding any shipping charge or VAT.
  3. AFFILIATE Payments - payment to AFFILIATE will not be rendered for amounts less than £50.00 (GBP) unless requested by AFFILIATE. Example: if you have a total of £100.00 in sales you might have £5.00 in your affiliate account, thus your account will carry over ino the next months cycle. When your account total reaches £50.00 or more you will be sent a payment at the next payment date provided all orders associated with this revenue meet the condiditons set forth in (a) above.

3. 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)
  • Spamming (mass email, mass newsgroup posting, etc...)
  • Advertising on sites containing/promoting illegal activities or offensive material.
  • Violation of intellectual property rights.

    4. AFFILIATE Links
    You may use graphic and text links both on your Web Site and in emails. The site may also be advertised "offline" in classified ads, magazines, and newpapers. You may use the graphics and text provided to you by us, or you may create your own as long as they are approved by us first.

    5. AFFILIATE Tracking
    When a web surfer clicks through your AFFILIATE link, a cookie is set in their browser that contains your AFFILIATE username and which has an expiry period of 168 hours. The visitors IP address is also tracked in the database along with your AFFILIATE name. When this person decides to buy a product, the script will look for this cookie and/or 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 they are using the same IP address as the one logged in the database provided the time elapsed is less than the expiry period.

    6. Terms of the agreement
    These terms will begin upon your signup with the AFFILIATE program and will end when your AFFILIATE account is terminated. The terms of this agreement may be modified by us at any time. If any modification to the terms is unnacceptable to you, your only choice is to terminate your AFFILIATE account. Your continuing participation in the program will constitute your acceptance of any change.
