Web Designer Program
- 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 clients 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
client's signing up with us, according to our web designer
commission schedule, provided we have received payment from your client's behalf for
the second or subsequent months of hosting fees.
- Rendering of Services: We will treat your
clients as our own clients, provide our services and bill them at our regular prices that
we post in our website. Your clients will qualify to receive any special pricing and
features that we offer to our direct clients time to time. We will answer technical
support questions from both you and your clients. However, to avoid answering twice the
same support question that you and your clients might have regarding your clients'
accounts, we may send copies of our answers to your questions to your clients, if we feel
- 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 web designer 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 associate ID in the order form.
If you or your clients enter your associate ID while placing an order, we can track the
sales as your sale. Also, even if your clients do not enter your ID in our order form, but
they 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 client orders during a later session by directly visiting our site and
does not include your web designer 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 client does not enter your ID in the order form AND does not
order our service during the same session when your client clicked your link, we will be
unable to track the sale as your sale unless your client has a fixed IP address from
his/her ISP or your client explicitly mentions your name on the order form or while your
client contacts us.
- Modification and Cancellation: GlobalFront
reserves the right to modify or cancel its web designer 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 web designer associate program by emailing your intention to firstname.lastname@example.org anytime. For your security,
we require that you include your web designer 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.
