AFFILIATE REGISTRATION PROCESS
Once You complete an application to become an Affiliate, we will review Your application and notify You whether You have been accepted to participate in the Marketing Affiliate Program, or not. Before we accept an application, we may want to review Your application with You, so we may reach out to You for more information. We may require that You complete certain requirements or certification(s) before we accept Your application.
If You are accepted to participate in the Marketing Affiliate Program, then upon notification of acceptance, the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall apply in full force and effect, until terminated, pursuant to the terms set forth below. Further, You will need to complete any enrolment criteria set out in the Program Policies, if applicable. Failure to complete any enrolment criteria within thirty (30) days of Your acceptance will result in the immediate termination of this Agreement and You will no longer be able to participate in the Marketing Affiliate Program.
You will comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement at all times, including any applicable Program Policies.
Marketing Affiliate Program Limits. Each accepted Affiliate Lead will expire according to the information provided on the Program Policies Page from the date the Affiliate Lead clicked on the Affiliate Link that was made available by You. A Customer Transaction made with an Affiliate Code will override an Affiliate Lead, and the Commission will be associated to the Affiliate with the associated Affiliate Code. We will pay You Commission for each new Customer who completes a Customer Transaction after clicking on an Affiliate Link made available by You, or that have entered Your Affiliate Code, provided that You remain eligible to receive Commission pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. You will receive a Commission payment for that Customer Transaction only. The Affiliate will not be entitled to receive Commission on any additional purchases of Weret Products by that same Customer via other links.
Eligibility. To be eligible for Commission (i) an Affiliate Lead must be accepted and valid in accordance with the ‘Acceptance and Validity’ section, and (ii) a Customer Transaction must have occurred. Any transactions occurring on other domains not owned by Weret will not be eligible for Commission.
Acceptance and Validity. You will only be eligible for a Commission payment for any Customer Transactions that derived from Affiliate Leads generated by the Affiliate Link that We make available to You and are accepted by Weret. An Affiliate Lead will be considered valid and accepted if, in our reasonable determination: (i) it is a new potential customer of ours, and (ii) is not, at the time of submission or sixty (60) days prior, one of our pre-existing customers. An Affiliate Lead is not considered valid if it’s first click on the Affiliate Link is after this Agreement has expired or if the Agreement has terminated.
Cookie Duration. Cookies used as part of this marketing affiliate program have a 20 day duration. If a potential customer clears their cookies during this period or use another web browser in which the cookie was not activated prior to the signup, We shall not be liable for any commissions that may have been owed to You.
Engagement with Prospects. Once We have received the Affiliate Lead information, We may elect to engage with the prospect directly, regardless of whether or not the Affiliate Lead is valid. If an Affiliate Lead is not valid then We may choose to maintain it in our database and We may choose to engage with such Affiliate Lead.

We will not pay more than one Commission payment or other similar referral fee on any given Customer Transaction (unless We choose to in our discretion).
