4) NON-EXCLUSIVITY

This Agreement does not create an exclusive relationship between you and us.  You are free to work with similar affiliate program providers in any category.  This agreement imposes no restrictions on us to work with any individual or company you may choose.

5) AFFILATE PROGRAM

Once you AGREE TO THE TERMS, and submit, you will receive an email with instructions to set up your AFFLIATE ACCOUNT where you’ll provide the AFFILATE INFORMATION NEEDED TO RECEIVE FUNDS THROUGH PAYPAL and LEARN HOW TO REVIEW YOUR DASHBOARD and see DAILY, WEEKLY, MONTHLY or YEARLY SALES ACTITITIES.  Inside your account you’ll be able to GET YOUR AFFILATE LINKS that are ASSIGNED TO YOU so you POST and SEND OUT TO EVERYONE.

Each time a user clicks your ASSIGNED AFFILATE LINK, they come to the GeekKnights.com site and someone DONATES and PLEDGES to support the Episodes/Series will get paid a commission.  You’ll be eligible to receive a 10 % commission of the total billing price . 

We currently have 8 DONATE/PLEDGE LEVELS where commission payouts happen.

Example: $200 Level = $20 Commission

$5, $10, $20, $50, $100, $200, $1500, $2500

6) PAYOUT INFORMATION

Payouts will only be available when the Company has your current complete set up information.  We will be using PAYPAL ONLY for payment.  Please follow the Affiliate Set Up Steps.

Payouts will be available the month after they accrue.   For example, since payments are made monthly, payouts are made 10 days from the month ends.  If your commissions are over $20K for the months end, you’ll be paid in batches.   Example: Earnings for 1 month:  $35K.  1st Batch $20K, & 2nd Batch $15K.

We explicitly reserve the right to change payout information in our sold and exclusive discretion. If we do so, you will be notified.

Payouts are also subject to the following restriction:

  1. Payouts are only available when a threshold for the month reaches $100 dollars.   If your commissions don’t reach $100 dollars for the month ending, we will process the following months batching as long as you hit $100 dollars. 

7) REPORTS

You may log into your account with us to review reports related to your affiliation, such as payout reports and purchase information.  Please be advised, however, that not all listed qualify purchases have been fully reviewed for accuracy in the reports viewable by you in real-time and therefore may be subject to change prior to payout.

8) TERM, TERMINATION & SUSPENSION

The term of this Agreement began when you AGREED and SUBMITTED into the Affiliate Program today.   It can be terminated by either Party at any time without cause.

You may only earn payouts as long as you are an Affiliate in good standing during the term.  If you terminate this Agreement with us, you will qualify to receive payouts earned prior to the date of termination.

If you fail to follow the terms of this Agreement or any other legal terms we have posted anywhere on our website or websites, you forfeit all rights, including the right to any unclaimed payout.

We specifically reserve the right to terminate this Agreement if you violate any of the terms outlined herein, including, but not limited to, violating the intellectual property rights of the Company or their party, failing to comply with applicable laws or other legal obligations, and/or publishing or distribution illegal material.
