Retail Partner and Affiliate Program Terms and Conditions
Who is this for and why?
This is for all Hamboards affiliates, existing and new.
At Hamboards, we like to keep things transparent. We have the same policy for our Retailer and our Affiliate programs.
We’d like to treat our Retailers and Affiliates as a part of the Hamboards family and hence expect them to adhere to certain guidelines we follow.
There is no fine print and the ‘Terms Of Service’ which are quite rudimentary and common-sense. The aim here is to make sure that all Hamboards Retailers and Affiliates benefit from this program without anyone trying to gain advantage using unfair SEO tactics or ‘Black Hat SEO’.
At Hamboards, we have spent a number of years on improving our ranking organically and reaching a wider audience. To be clear, we will not accept any Affiliate using black hat techniques to gain an unfair edge. Any Affiliate suspected of using such practices will receive an email from Hamboards with a request to answer some basic questions. If no reply is received within 48 hours, their commission will be lowered to 0% and their Affiliate account may be temporarily or permanently suspended or terminated.
The terms are stated clearly below and we highly recommend all current and future affiliates to go through them carefully.
This Agreement contains the terms and conditions that apply to you as an affiliate in Hamboards Affiliate Program. The purpose of this Agreement is to allow HTML linking between your website and the Hamboards web site. Please note that throughout this agreement, “we”, “us”, and “ours” refer to Hamboards, and “you”, “your”, and “yours” refer to the affiliate.
