This agreement describes the entire terms and conditions for participation in the Susan Russo Affiliate Program.
In this agreement, the term “Affiliate” refers to you (the applicant). Wherever the agreement refers to “you” or “your”, it means “the Affiliate”; “we” or “our” refers to Susan Russo
ClickBank will create a unique URL for you when you submit a complete Affiliate Enrollment Form.
You will receive 50% of the revenue as a commission from orders placed through your Affiliate Site (unless noted otherwise for a particular product) less the charges outlined by ClickBank in their agreement http://www.clickbank.com/paychecks.html . For a sale to generate a commission to an Affiliate, the customer must complete the order form and remit full payment for the product ordered. Commissions will only be paid on sales that are made through qualified Affiliate links.
ClickBank will send a check for the applicable commissions within the framework of their policies http://www.clickbank.com/paychecks.html . If any order that generated a referral fee is returned by the customer, or if there are any returned checks or charge backs, the amount will be deducted by ClickBank from the next payment due affiliate.
Susan Russo will be solely responsible for processing every order placed by a customer on the Affiliate Site. You are not authorized to sell any of these products from your site as a “reseller” and no “resale” rights are granted in ANY way on these products unless otherwise noted.
Customers who purchase products and services through the Affiliate Program will be deemed to be customers of Susan Russo. Accordingly, all rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders and service will apply to those customers. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. Prices and availability of our products and services may vary from time to time. Susan Russo policies will always determine the price paid by the customer.
Qualification for Commissions
Affiliates must have an active link from their website to their Affiliate link in order to qualify for commissions.
Susan Russo reserves the right not to accept any site into the Affiliate Program based on site content. Sites that Do Not Qualify for the Affiliate Program include sites which:
- Promote sexually explicit materials
- Promote violence
- Promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age
- Promote illegal activities

Unsolicited Commercial Email or SPAM
Susan Russo in no way participates in mass unsolicited emailing (i.e. spamming), and all Affiliates are expected to adhere to this policy as well. Violation of this policy will result in the termination of this contract and immediate dismissal from the Susan Russo Affiliate Program, with no refund.
Bottom line: If you spam you’re out!

We may reject your application or terminate you if we determine (in our sole discretion) that your site is unsuitable for the Program for any reason, including, harmful, threatening, defamatory, obscene, sexually explicit harassing, or racially, ethically, or otherwise objectionable, such as sites that:

Limitation of Liability
We will not be liable for indirect, special, or consequential damages (or any loss of revenue, profits, or data) arising in connection with this Agreement or the Program, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Further, our aggregate liability arising with respect to this Agreement and the Program will not exceed the total commissions paid or payable to you under to this Agreement.
We make no express or implied warranties or representations with respect to the Affiliate Program or your potential to earn income from the Affiliate Program. In addition, we make no representation that the operation of our site or the Affiliate links will be uninterrupted or error-free, and we will not be liable for the consequences of any interruptions or errors.
If a dispute arises under this agreement, we agree to first try to resolve it with the help of a mutually agreed-upon mediator in the following location: Russo, PA. Any costs and fees other than attorney fees associated with the mediation will be shared equally by each of us.
If it proves impossible to arrive at a mutually satisfactory solution through mediation, we agree to submit the dispute to binding arbitration at the following location: Russo, PA, under the rules of the American Arbitration Association. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitration may be entered in any court with jurisdiction to do so. Mediation will be shared equally by each of us.
You may not assign this Agreement, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. Subject to that restriction, this Agreement will be binding on, inure to the benefit of, and enforceable against the parties and their respective successors and assigns.

Failure to do so may (at the sole discretion of Susan Russo) result in immediate termination of your affiliate account, and forfeiture of any commissions accrued.
Our failure to enforce your strict performance of any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of our right to subsequently enforce such provision or any other provision of this Agreement.
