    • NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, and in consideration of the mutual covenants and conditions herein set forth, and with the intent to be legally bound thereby, the Parties hereby agree as follows:
  • INTRODUCTORY PROVISIONS:

 

    • This Agreement is a conditional contract as between You and Us, and We are not bound by its terms until such time as We accept You into the Program. This Agreement and the provisions hereof, shall be in full force and effect commencing on the date You are accepted into the Program by Us and continuing until the Agreement is terminated by either of the Parties in accordance with the termination provisions set forth elsewhere in this AgreementYour acceptance of this Agreement is effective upon Your registration to become an Affiliate via the link at: webmasters.gotprofits.com/signup, or any other location which may allow You to register as an Affiliate.  Should You not be accepted into the Program, You will receive notice of same, and this Agreement will be considered void as between You and Us.
    • Defining This Agreement – This Agreement is a legal contract between You (the Affiliate) and Us (the Operator).  You should treat it as any other legal contract by reading its provisions carefully, as they will affect Your legal rights.  By assenting to this Agreement or by taking advantage of any of the benefits of membership in Our Program should You be accepted, You are affirmatively agreeing to be bound by all of the terms contained in this Agreement.  You may not pick and choose which terms apply to You.  If You do not agree to be bound by all of the terms in this Agreement, You must cease all activities contemplated by this Agreement, participation in the Program, and forfeit all commissions that may be due. 

 

    • Electronic Signatures / Assent Required – Nobody is authorized to act as an Affiliate for this Site unless they have signed this Agreement and have been accepted into the Program by Us.  Such signature does not need to be a physical signature, since electronic acceptance of this Agreement is permitted by the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (E-Sign Act) and similar federal and state laws.  You manifest Your agreement to this contractual Agreement by taking any act demonstrating Your assent thereto.  Most likely, You will click a button containing the words “I agree” or some similar syntax.  You should understand that this act has the same legal effect as You placing Your physical signature on any other legal contract.  If You fail to electronically sign, or otherwise agree to this Agreement, You will not be considered for acceptance into the Program, and, if already accepted as an Affiliate, You will be terminated from the Program immediately.  Any funds otherwise due will be forfeited, and You will be required to refund any payments made by Us to You resulting from your unauthorized participation in the Program.  If You fail to remit this refund within thirty (30) days of Our demand for repayment, We will take legal action against You.
    • Revisions to This Agreement

 

      • From time to time, We may revise this Agreement.  We reserve the right to do so, and You agree that We have this right.  You agree that all modifications or changes to this Agreement are in force and enforceable immediately upon posting.  Any updated or edited version supersedes any prior versions immediately upon posting, and the prior version is of no continuing legal effect unless the revised version specifically refers to the prior version and keeps the prior version or portions thereof in effect.  To the extent any amendment of this Agreement is deemed ineffective or invalid by any court or arbitrator, the parties intend that the prior, effective version of this Agreement be considered valid and enforceable to the fullest extent.
      • We agree that if We change anything in this Agreement, We will change the “Last Modified” date at the top of this Agreement.  You agree to periodically re-visit this web page to view this Agreement, and to use the “Refresh” button on Your browser when doing so.  You agree to note the date of the last revision to this Agreement.  If the “Last Modified” date remains unchanged from the last time You reviewed this Agreement, then You may presume that nothing in the Agreement has been changed since the last time You read it.  If the “Last Modified” date has changed, then You can be certain that something in the Agreement has been changed, and You should review it carefully before continuing to participate in the Program. Any continued participation in the Program or acceptance of any payments after modification of this Agreement shall constitute your express consent to the new Agreement.

 

      • Waiver – if You fail to periodically review this Agreement to determine if any of the terms have changed, You assume all responsibility for such omission and You agree that such failure amounts to Your affirmative waiver of Your right to review the amended terms.  We are not responsible for Your neglect of Your own legal rights.
