Links/graphics on your site, in your emails, or other communications

Once you have signed up for the Affiliate Program, you will be assigned a unique Affiliate Code. You are permitted to place links, banners, or other graphics we provide with your Affiliate Code on your site, in your emails, or in other communications. We will provide you with guidelines, link styles, and graphical artwork to use in linking to The Summit Vanuatu. We may change the design of the artwork at any time without notice, but we will not change the dimensions of the images without proper notice. To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and referral fee accrual, we will provide you with special link formats to be used in all links between your site and the The Summit Vanuatu. You must ensure that each of the links between your site and the The Summit Vanuatu properly utilizes such special link formats. Links to the The Summit Vanuatu placed on your site pursuant to this Agreement and which properly utilize such special link formats are referred to as “Special Links.” You will earn referral fees only with respect to sales on a The Summit Vanuatu product occurring directly through Special Links; we will not be liable to you with respect to any failure by you or someone you refer to use Special Links or incorrectly type your Affiliate Code, including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction of amounts that would otherwise be paid to you pursuant to this Agreement. Affiliate links should point to the page of the product being promoted.

Referral fees/commissions and payment

For a Product sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must click-through a Special Link from your site, email, or other communications to www.thesummitvanuatu.com and complete an order for a product during that session. The session ends once someone closes their web browser, navigates away from the www.thesummitvanuatu.com, or otherwise leaves www.thesummitvanuatu.com without ordering a product before leaving the site. If they leave the site, come back later on their own, and then purchase a product, you will not earn a commission. We will only pay commissions on links that are automatically tracked and reported by our systems. We will not pay commissions if someone says they purchased or someone says they entered a referral code if it was not tracked by our system. We can only pay commissions on business generated through properly formatted special links that were automatically tracked by our systems. We reserve the right to disqualify commissions earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods. Payments only begin once you’ve earned more than $100 in affiliate income. If your affiliate account never crosses the $100 threshold, and after a period of inactivity the length of which is decided at the sole discretion of The Summit Vanuatu, your status as an Affiliate will be reviewed.   If this Agreement is then terminated pursuant to these terms and conditions, any unpaid commissions will be paid to you.
