Partner Terms and Conditions
Partner Program Terms and Conditions
Centerpointe Research Institute has a policy of allowing even the smallest of sites with low traffic counts to join and make money through our Partner (Affiliate) Program. All qualifying sites are welcome.
Partner commissions can be earned in the following ways:
- Sales through a website that links to www.centerpointe.com
- Sales by phone
- Sales by mail
These terms and conditions apply to your participation in the Centerpointe Affiliate Program (the “Program”).
Enrollment in the Program
To begin the enrollment process, you must submit a completed Program application via Partner (Affiliate) Signup page. By completing and submitting this form, you are agreeing to these terms and conditions.
We will evaluate your application in good faith and will notify you of its acceptance or rejection. We may reject your application if we determine (in our sole discretion) that you or your website is unsuitable for the Program. You should also note that if we accept your application and you or your site is thereafter determined (in our sole discretion) to be unsuitable for the Program, we may terminate this Agreement without notice.
Unsuitable websites/individuals/businesses include, but are not limited to, those that:
- · Use “Centerpointe,” “Holosync,” or any other trademark of Centerpointe Research or its affiliates, or any variation or misspelling of any such trademark, in its URL to the left of the top-level domain name (e.g., “.com,” “.net,”, “.uk,” etc.). [For example, a URL such as “centerpointe.mydomain.com,” “centerpointe.com,” or “centerpointeresearch.net” would be unsuitable.]
· Engage in any form of typosquatting or cybersquatting.
· Violate or have violated the intellectual property rights of Centerpointe Research or of any other individual or business.
Centerpointe demands that its affiliates not in any way infringe the trademark, copyright or other intellectual property rights of anyone else so long as the affiliate works with Centerpointe. Violation of this rule is grounds for termination.
Sales Through Your Website
Once you have been accepted into the Program, we grant you a revocable, nonexclusive, worldwide, royalty-free license for the duration of the term of this Agreement to use Centerpointe Research trademarks solely for the purpose of providing a link to www.centerpointe.com on your site.
Centerpointe Research will pay a $30 commission on each sale of Awakening Prologue made to visitors coming from your site. The buying customer must first land on your website, newsletter or email before being directed to the www.centerpointe.com website through the Centerpointe Research link or banner on your site. Links through PPC search engines must first lead to your website and then to www.centerpointe.com through the Centerpointe Research link or banner on your website. Sales coming directly from affiliate links placed on search engines are not eligible for commission. Cookies are used to track commissions on sales, which allows commissions to be correctly paid even if a user does not purchase the item until after many repeat visits.
Except for the license granted in this section, you do not obtain any rights under this Agreement in any intellectual property, including, without limitation, any intellectual property with respect to the www.centerpointe.com domain name.
You also acknowledge that we may monitor your site at any time for the purpose of ensuring compliance with these terms and conditions. Therefore, you agree that we may take such actions and that you will not seek to block or otherwise interfere with such monitoring (and that we may use technical means to overcome any methods used on your site to block or interfere with such monitoring).
In order to protect and preserve our goodwill, we have the right, but not the obligation, to pre-approve any graphics, logos, text and other content used on your website. You will make all deletions and modifications on your website requested by us. Your website will use all appropriate copyright, trademark and other intellectual property notices.
If your site specifies a price point for any Centerpointe Research product, you will ensure that your website is regularly updated to reflect all price changes.
We reserve the right to terminate any specific banner hosting without payment or other consideration if, in our sole discretion, we deem that particular hosting to be inappropriate to the host site traffic.
To permit accurate tracking, reporting and fee accrual, you must ensure that the links between your site and the www.centerpointe.com site are properly formatted. We will not be liable for paying referral fees on purchases that are not correctly tracked and reported because the links between your site and the www.centerpointe.com site are not properly formatted.
Sales by Phone or Mail
Each sale of the Awakening PrologueProduct by phone or mail is eligible for a $30 commission if and only if the customer identifies the affiliate name and number at the time the order is made. It is your responsibility to notify the customer of this requirement. Under no circumstances will we pay commissions on orders where the affiliate or customer advises us of the referral subsequent to the order.
We will process product orders placed by customers who follow links from your site to the www.centerpointe.com site or who purchase by mail, fax or phone, though we reserve the right to reject orders that do not comply with any requirements that we periodically may establish. All purchases and sales of Centerpointe products take place in Oregon. As an affiliate, you will merely be a referral source for our product(s). Affiliates are not involved in any other part of the transaction with our clients. We will be responsible for all aspects of order processing and fulfillment. We will track sales made to customers who purchase Products by using links from your site to the www.centerpointe.com site and will make available to you reports summarizing this sales activity. The form, content and frequency of the reports may vary from time to time in our discretion.
Payment of Referral Fees
We will pay a $30 commission on each eligible (as defined above) collected sale of Awakening Prologue. Commissions paid on sales later returned by the customer for a refund will be deducted from future earned commissions. Payment will only be issued once the $90 commission amount has been reached. Commission checks will be sent on or before the fifteenth day of each month for previous month’s sales for which payment has been received.
Please note that federal law requires us to obtain tax information from Program participants who are U.S. citizens, U.S. residents or U.S. corporations and from Program participants who are not U.S. citizens or residents but whose businesses are taxable in the United States. If we believe you are a Program participant from whom we are obligated to obtain tax information and you do not provide this information to us after we have requested it, we may withhold your referral fee payments until you provide this information or otherwise satisfy us that you are not a person from whom we are required to obtain tax information. You will fill out and send us a Form W9 (which we will send you).
Policies and Pricing
Customers who buy Products through this Program will be deemed to be our customers. Accordingly, all of our rules, policies and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service and Product sales will apply to those customers. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. You will refer all Product-and purchase-related questions, requests and queries to us.
Limited License; Intellectual Property
We grant you a nonexclusive, revocable right to use the banner and text we provide to you for use on your website and such other text or images for which we grant express permission, solely for the purpose of identifying your site as a Program participant and to assist in generating Product sales. We reserve all of our rights in the graphic image and text, any other images, our trade names and trademarks and all other intellectual property rights. You agree to follow our Trademark Guidelines, as those guidelines may change from time to time. We may revoke your license at any time by giving you written notice.
You acknowledge that all proprietary information, trademarks, copyrights and similar rights in, to and arising out of Centerpointe Research products and services are the exclusive property of Centerpointe Research. You will not in any manner represent that you have any ownership in such rights and/or materials.
If you learn of any claim or allegation that a Centerpointe Research product infringes upon or violates any intellectual property or other rights of a third party, or contains any unlawful, libelous or untrue statement, or if you learn that any third party is infringing upon or violating any intellectual property or other rights of Centerpointe Research, or contains any unlawful, libelous or untrue statement, you will immediately notify us in writing.
Term of the Agreement
The term of this Agreement will begin upon our acceptance of your Program application and will end when terminated by either party. Either you or we may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause, by giving the other party written notice of termination. Upon the termination of this Agreement for any reason, you will immediately cease use of and remove from your site all links to the www.centerpointe.com site, and all of our trademarks, trade dress, logos and all other materials provided by or on behalf of us to you pursuant hereto or in connection with the Program. You are eligible to earn referral fees only on sales of qualifying Products that occur during the term, and referral fees earned through the date of termination will remain payable only if the related orders are not canceled or returned. We may withhold your final payment for a reasonable time to ensure that the correct amount is paid. If we terminate this Agreement due to your breach, we will not be required to pay any outstanding commissions.
We may modify any of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, at any time and in our sole discretion, by posting a change notice or a new agreement on the www.centerpointe.com site. Modifications may include, for example, changes in the scope of available referral fees, referral fee schedules, payment procedures and Program rules. IF ANY MODIFICATION IS UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU, YOUR ONLY RECOURSE IS TO TERMINATE THIS AGREEMENT. YOUR CONTINUED PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM FOLLOWING OUR POSTING OF A CHANGE NOTICE OR NEW AGREEMENT ON THE WWW.CENTERPOINTE.COM SITE WILL CONSTITUTE BINDING ACCEPTANCE OF THE CHANGE.
Relationship of Parties
Whereas, if you are accepted into the Program, nothing in this Agreement will create any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative or employment relationship between you and us. You will have no authority to make or accept any offers or representations on our behalf. You will not make any statement, whether on your site or otherwise, that reasonably would contradict anything in this section.
