Updated on September 16, 2020

 

Thank you for considering Hypeach LLC’s (“Hypeach”) Style Ambassador Affiliate Program. The following represents the terms and conditions (“Affiliate Terms”), which apply to your participation in Hypeach’s Style Ambassador Affiliate Program (“Affiliate Program”). The purpose of these Affiliate Terms is to allow you to make affiliate commissions, bonuses, and/or other perks through sales generated from your website and/or other approved and designated platform(s) (hereinafter, the “Sites”) from our products in the manner set forth herein.

 

1. Execution of Agreement. By participating in the Affiliate Program, you represent that you have read, fully understand, and agree to be bound by all the terms and conditions of the Affiliate Terms.

 

2. Incorporation by Reference. The Affiliate Terms are subject to Hypeach’s website Terms and Conditions of Use and Privacy Policy, which are incorporated by reference into the Affiliate Terms along with the Master Campaign Agreement terms and conditions [https://app.impact.com/content/MCA.ihtml]. If there are conflicts between the website Terms and Conditions of Use, Privacy Policy, Master Campaign Agreement, and the Affiliate Terms, the website Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy shall govern only to the extent of the conflict unless related to the dispute resolution procedures. 

 

3.  Enrollment in Affiliate Program. To be enrolled in Hypeach’s Affiliate Program, an application must be completed and submitted to Hypeach. Once your application has been reviewed and approved, Hypeach will provide you with details to establish yourself as a “Style Ambassador” Affiliate with Hypeach, which will include your unique URL and commissionable link(s) (links that track activity back to your affiliate account) that can be accessed from your affiliate account page. All clicks driven to Hypeach via your unique URL or commissionable links have a cookie (click referral) window valid for up to 5 days for a purchase to be made and credited to your Affiliate Program account. Such cookie (click referral) window will continue to remain valid as long as potential purchasers visit and utilize the URL and commissionable link(s) tied to your Affiliate Program account (i.e., a 5-day window for crediting purchases to your Affiliate Program account is in effect from the last click that occurred through your unique URL or commissionable links tied to your Affiliate Program account). You must ensure that your information, including your e-mail address is complete, accurate, and up to date at all times. Hypeach may send communication to the e-mail address associated with your account. Even if the e-mail address associated with your account is no longer current, you will be deemed to have received all notifications, approvals, and other communications sent to that e-mail address.  

 

4. Linking to Hypeach’s Website.   Acceptance into the Affiliate Program means Affiliate agrees to and abides by the following:

 

  1. Affiliate will only use the URL obtained from Hypeach without manipulation.

 

  1. All Affiliate Sites that use the URL must be listed in your affiliate profile in your Hypeach Affiliates Program account.

 

  1. Affiliate’s website(s) will not in any way copy, resemble, or mirror the look and feel of Hypeach’s website(s) or create the impression that Affiliate’s website(s) is in any way a part of Hypeach’s website(s).

 

  1. Affiliate may not engage in cookie stuffing or include pop-ups, false or misleading links on Affiliate’s Sites. Wherever possible, Affiliate will not attempt to mask the referring URL information, such as the page from where the click is originating.

 

  1. Affiliate is prohibited from using redirects to bounce a click off of a domain from which the click did not originate in order to make it appear that it came from that domain. If it is uncovered that Affiliate is redirecting links to hide or manipulate the original source, Affiliate’s current and past commissions, bonuses, other earnings, and/or perks will be voided or the Affiliate Commissions (defined herein) will be set to zero and/or zero percent (0%).

 

  1. At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your Sites as independent from Hypeach.
