This site is owned and operated by Plumrocket, Inc (the "Software Provider" or "Provider"). These Partner Program Terms of Service (the "PTOS") apply to and govern your use of the Site, Products and the Services (collectively referred to as the "Software"). Your use of the Software signifies your agreement to be bound by these PTOS, the Privacy Policy (the "Privacy Policy") and the Refund Policy (the "Refund Policy") which is hereby incorporated by reference.

Changes to these PTOS will be effective when posted. You agree to review these PTOS periodically to be aware of any changes. Your continued use of the Software after any changes to these PTOS are posted will be considered acceptance of those changes and will constitute your agreement to be bound thereby.

 

2. PARTNER PROGRAM RULES

  • Your status as a Partner is effective as soon as your application is approved and the registration fee is paid. The fee is taken for the period of one year starting from the date of payment.
  • The Provider badge can be placed on the Partner's website after the application form is filled and approved by the Provider.
  • The resale price advertised by the Partner must not be lower than the product price listed on Provider's store (store.plumrocket.com). 
  • The Partner is responsible for delivering support and providing refunds to end-customers. Provider does NOT provide support or refunds to the Partner's end-customers.
  • Partner's discount is the amount taken off the original price. If a product is already on a promotion, Partner will benefit from the higher discount rate only.
  • Once a Partner establishes a certain volume of sales, it is possible to move to a higher discount level. For the volume of sales tiers, check the table at the partner program page.
  • In case Partner does not reach a minimum revenue commitment, the Partner account will be downgraded to the lower level. 
  • In case of violation of the PTOS, Provider reserves the right to terminate the Partner relationship, or alter the terms of the Partner Program, or quit the Program at its own discretion.

 

3. CONFIDENTIALITY

The Partner and Provider may disclose confidential information one to the other to facilitate work under this PTOS.  Such information shall be so identified in writing at the time of its transmittal, and shall be safeguarded and not disclosed to third parties by the receiving party.  Confidential information shall not include information that:

  • is already known to the party to which it is disclosed;
  • is or becomes part of the public domain without breach of this PTOS;
  • is obtained from third parties, which have no obligations to keep confidential to the parties to this PTOS.

 

4. DISCLAIMERS

4.1. Third Party or Partner Script Modification

Provider can take no responsibility for services provided by third parties through us or otherwise, including the web hosting of the Partner's Software. Partner may desire to independently edit or update his Software, note however, Provider is not responsible for any damage created by the Partner, agent of the Partner or any third party.

4.2. Consequential Loss

Under no circumstances will Provider be responsible or liable for financial or other loss or damage caused by the failure or use or misuse of its Software. The Partner should ensure that data on their site is regularly backed up and that a contingency plan is in place to minimize possible losses as a result of Software failure.

4.3. Security

Provider will make reasonable attempts to protect the integrity of the Partner's Software. As no software or server is 100% safe from security breach, the Partner understands that the Provider cannot be held accountable for all security breaches should they occur.

4.4. Status and Duration of Offers

Proposals and offers are valid for a period of two weeks from the date issued. Provider is not bound to honor offers that have expired. Offers are not legally binding until an acceptable timetable for the work has been agreed by both parties. This timetable must be agreed within the two weeks that the offer is valid. If an acceptable timetable has not been approved by both parties within two weeks of the offer being made, the offer is deemed to have expired. Provider reserves the right to adjust timetable and all project dates accordingly or treat offer as invalid and therefore terminated if Partner fails to pay first deposit before the start date specified in offer.

 

5. RATINGS AND REVIEWS

When Partner submits content for posting on Provider's Site, Partner permits Provider to post his submission with his name, city, country and website address. By submitting any content to Provider, Partner represents and warrants that:

  • Partner is the sole author and owner of the intellectual property rights thereto;
  • all "moral rights" that Partner may have in such content have been voluntarily waived by Partner;
  • all content that Partner posts is accurate;
  • use of the content Partner supplies does not violate these TOS and will not cause injury to any person or entity.

Partner further agrees and warrants that Partner shall not submit any content:

  • that is known by Partner to be false, inaccurate or misleading;
  • that infringes any third party's copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights or rights of publicity or privacy;
  • that violates any law, statute, ordinance or regulation (including, but not limited to, those governing export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, anti-discrimination or false advertising);
  • that is, or may reasonably be considered to be, defamatory, libelous, hateful, racially or religiously biased or offensive, unlawfully threatening or unlawfully harassing to any individual, partnership or corporation;
  • for which Partner was compensated or granted any consideration by any third party;
  • that includes any information that references other websites, addresses, email addresses, contact information or phone numbers.

Partner agrees to indemnify and hold Provider (and its officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures, employees and third-party service providers), harmless from all claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown including reasonable attorneys' fees, arising out of a breach of Partner's representations and warranties set forth above, or Partner's violation of any law or the rights of a third party.

All content that Partner submits may be used at Provider's sole discretion. Provider reserves the right to change, condense or delete any content on Provider's website that Provider deems, in its sole discretion, to violate the content guidelines or any other provision of these TOS. Provider does not guarantee that Partner will have any recourse to edit or delete any content that Partner has submitted. Ratings and written comments are generally posted within two to four business days. However, Provider reserves the right to remove or to refuse to post any submission for any reason. Partner acknowledges that Partner, not Provider, is responsible for the contents of Partner's submission.
