These Affiliate Terms and Conditions contain all the terms and conditions that apply at the time of enrolling in the SkillS4i Affiliate Program (the "Affiliate Program"). The purpose of these Affiliate Terms and Conditions is to enable Affiliates to earn commissions through sales generated by their websites of Our services in the manner described herein.
2. How it works
Briefly, the Affiliate can connect to any SkillS4i page with their affiliate ID and receive the commission if the referred customer purchases an item. Specifically, this happens through personalized links related to the SkillS4i web pages and its products.
It is important to emphasize that when a Customer accesses our site, a 30-day cookie will be generated, thanks to which the Affiliate's commission is guaranteed for all 30 days following the first click. This means that even if the Customer does not purchase one or more products immediately, but does so within the next 30 days, the commission will still be paid to the Affiliate.
3. Subscription to the Affiliate Program
(a) Completion of the registration form. You must complete an Affiliate Program application in which you must identify your website and provide certain contact information. The registration form is accessible at https://www.skills4i.com/affiliate-home/affiliate-register/.
(b) Acceptance of the Registration Application. If we decide to accept the Application, we will send a notification email confirming the approval of the Application. The Affiliate understands that whether or not to accept the Application is at our sole discretion. The Application will be rejected if the information provided is incorrect or incomplete, or if the website promotes material of an inappropriate, violent or defamatory nature, or if the Affiliate or its website is discriminatory, violates any applicable law, violate the intellectual property rights of any person or for any other reason we consider it appropriate to reject the Application for registration.
(c) Access to the Affiliate Program. If we accept the Membership Application, we will send you a welcome email and you will be able to access our secure affiliate area from then on. From this area the Affiliate will be able to download specific links, as well as access his reports regarding the calculation of the affiliate commissions that are due to him. It is the Affiliate's responsibility to keep their username and password secure. For the sake of clarity, specific links mainly mean banners and text links.
(d) The Affiliate must ensure that his information, including his e-mail address, is always complete, accurate and up to date. We may send communications to the email address associated with the Affiliate's account. The Affiliate will be deemed to have received all notifications, approvals and other communications sent to such email address even if the email address associated with his account is no longer current.
