A Taxbot Partner (hereinafter referred to as “Partner”) is an Independent Contractor. This program does not create any partnership, joint venture, or co-entity whatsoever between Partner and Taxbot. Partner does not have the right to accept or make any agreements or decisions on behalf of Taxbot. Likewise, Taxbot has no say in the manner or methods Partner uses to run their business. The Partner Program is non-exclusive; there are no territories or defined groups to market to. This agreement shall not prohibit Taxbot or any other party from marketing Taxbot.
Partner acknowledges that Taxbot’s name and reputation are inextricably intertwined in the marketing of Taxbot’s products. Partner may not make any inflammatory or untrue statements in its marketing campaigns including, but not limited to, any savings guarantee claims. To avoid conflicts and to protect the integrity of the Taxbot brand, Taxbot reserves the right to suspend any Partners activities, and thus their Commissions, for phrases that Taxbot determines make untrue or inflammatory claims of our products, services or websites. Taxbot shall provide Partner with written notice of any objections. The Partner shall resolve any issues, to Taxbot’s full satisfaction, within two weeks of the date of notice. Failure to resolve these issues will result in termination of the Partner account and forfeiture of Commissions.
Taxbot will provide Partner with banners and logos for use on their website. Partner acknowledges these materials are the sole property of Taxbot and will not modify nor fraudulently use these materials. All materials will only be used in an effort to market Taxbot. Partner will not include Taxbot materials, logo, or links in any marketing considered SPAM and will conform to all CAN-SPAM standards. Taxbot reserves the right to hold any Commissions on any account suspected of fraudulent activity. Any accounts found to have participated in any fraudulent activity will be terminated and Commissions will be forfeited.
Taxbot, Taxbot.com, AuditSafe, Taxbot University, TaxbotU, TaxbotUniversity.com, and Sandy Botkin are copyrighted and trademarked property of Taxbot LLC and are NEVER to be bid on as keywords in any Paid Search Network by a Partner, including but not limited to Google Adwords, Overture.com, MSN.com, Findwhat.com, etc. This includes all derivatives, misspellings and/or phrases that include trademarked properties. This prohibition also extends to Paid Inclusion into Search engines as well. All violators' accounts will be terminated immediately and Commissions will be forfeited.
A. You may use the following trademarked name(s) in the text but NOT the headline of advertisements that are bought/bid on at pay-per-click search engines. For instance:
ii. Sandy Botkin
You may use trademarked terms in the Display URL of Paid Search Engines ONLY if they are displayed after the "slash" following a URL that you are the owner of. (See below examples). At no time can 'Taxbot.com’ appear in the Display URL; even if it is after the slash. Display URL Examples allowed:
All ads placed with either Paid Search Networks or Paid Inclusion Search Engines must include “aff” or “Partner” in the body text or headline of the advertisement. This is to identify the ad as a Partner reseller to potential clients. Where the Paid Search Network or Paid Inclusion Search Engine provide a field for you to identify your link as a sponsored listing (i.e. Google Adwords), you must complete that field and identify yourself as a Partner. You then do not have to add the text indicated above in the body of your advertisement or headline. Failure to follow this guideline will be grounds for suspension from the program and possibly forfeiture of all Commissions.
Protected Keywords (cannot be used): Taxbot, Taxbot.com, AuditSafe, Sandy Botkin, TaxbotU, Taxbot University, or TaxbotUniversity.com (inclusive of case sensitivity)
Recommended Keywords: Mileage tracking, expense tracking, business apps, tax app, small business tax software, tax tracking software.
Taxbot will process Qualified Orders placed through your unique Partner links. All aspects of order processing and fulfillment, including Taxbot service, cancellation, processing, and refunds will be our responsibility. We will track Qualified Orders generated by your links and will make this information available to you through our Partner back office. To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and Commissions accrual, you must ensure that your unique Partner links are properly formatted.
Partner Commissions will be paid on any new Qualified Orders placed through your Partner links. A Qualified Order is on new customer accounts only, not currently enrolled customers. Since the link a customer uses to place a new Qualified Order is beyond Taxbot’s control, we are unable to switch a Qualified Order from one Partner to another. Also, a customer may, at his or her own discretion, join a 3rd party vendor that includes Taxbot in their membership. In this circumstance, Commissions would not be available through your Partner account. All Qualified Orders will be subject to Taxbot's refund policies. Any refunds will be deducted from Partners Commissions.
Partner Commissions will accrue at the amount set on their account. For more information on your account, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org Partner Commissions will be paid via PayPal on the 15th of the month for the previous months earnings. If you do not currently have a PayPal account, an email will be forwarded with instructions for setting up an account. Taxbot reserves the right to hold Commissions and investigate any account that has an excessive refund rate or violations of this agreement.
From time to time, the terms of our Partner program may be modified, at our discretion, to ensure the integrity of the agreement. Written notification of any amendments to these terms will be sent to the Partner’s email on file.
Use of the Partner programs or collection of any Commissions constitutes your agreement to the terms of our Partner program.
