Referrer Program Policies
- Compliance with GlobalFront Policies:
Agreement and willingness to comply with GlobalFront policies is
a requirement for participation in all of our associate programs. In particular, spamming
(unsolicited bulk messaging in the internet) by email, spamming the newsgroups, or
mis-representation of GlobalFront services or its policies would cause immediate
cancellation of your associate ID and you will loose any remaining balance that you have
in your account at the time of the cancellation.
- Commissions: Once you get an associate ID
from us, either your referrals or you can use your ID while ordering a qualified account
from us. We will use your ID to track your sales, and will credit your account with
your commission for all your qualified sales, at the beginning of the second month of your
referral's signing up with us, according to our referrer commission
schedule, provided we have received payment from your referral's behalf for the second
month's of hosting fees.
- Rendering of Services: We will treat your
referrals as our own clients, provide our services and bill them at our regular prices
that we post in our website. Your referrals will qualify to receive any special pricing
and features that we offer to our direct clients time to time.
- Taxes: If you are a US resident, you would
need to provide your Tax ID if we ask for it. We reserve the right to withhold payments
unless we receive your Tax ID. Also, if total commission paid to you during any calendar year
approaches $600.00 or more, IRS form 1099-MISC may be issued to you by GlobalFront
showing the commissions paid to you during that calendar year. It will be your responsibility
to account for any commissions that you receive from GlobalFront on your US tax returns.
If you live in a foreign country, then you are exempt from this requirement
for providing your Tax ID, but you agree to pay any taxes due to your
local, state or federal government on earnings made from referral
commission paid to you by GlobalFront.
- Tracking Your Sales: We use two methods to
track your sales: (a) referrer ID field in our order form; and (b)
link, banner or button in your site embedded with your associate ID. Our order forms for
qualified accounts have a referrer ID field for entering referrer or ad ID in the order
form. If you or your referrals enter your associate ID while placing an order, we can
track the sale as your sale. Also, even if your referrals do not enter your ID in our
order form, but use a link, banner or button on your site with your ID embedded in the
link, banner or button, and place the order during the same session when they clicked the
link on your site, we will be able to track the sales as yours. However, this second
method of tracking is based on IP address of the visitor. Since many ISPs dynamically
reassign IP addresses for their clients' specific internet sessions, this method of
tracking may not always work accurately if your referral orders during a later session by
directly visiting our site and does not include your referrer ID while placing the order
in our website. We guarantee to credit you for the sale, if we can track the sale based on
either your ID or your link, banner or button. If your referral does not enter your ID in
the order form AND does not order our service during the same session when your referral
clicked your link, we will be unable to track the sale as your sale unless your referral
has a fixed IP address from his/her ISP or your referral explicitly mentions your name on
the order form or while your referral contacts us.
- Modification and Cancellation: GlobalFront
reserves the right to modify or cancel its referrer associate program or the commission
schedule anytime. If we modify the program, the modified rules will be posted in our
website. If we cancel the program, we will pay you any remaining balance that you have in
your account, provided your account is in good standing with us. You can cancel your
participation in our referrer associate program by emailing your intention to firstname.lastname@example.org anytime. For your security,
we require that you include your referrer ID and password in your cancellation email
before we can accept your cancellation request. You agree not to promote, represent or
mis-represent GlobalFront, its services or policies anytime to any parties, if either we
or you cancel your participation in our associate programs due to any reason at any time.
