terms and conditions that apply to your participation in the MyPilotStore.com Affiliate Program (the "Affiliate
Program" or "Program")
in the Program
You will submit
a complete Affiliate Program application from our site. After we
carefully review your application, we will notify you of your
acceptance or rejection to the Program. We may reject your
application (at our sole discretion) if we feel your site is
unsuitable or inconsistent with the mission of MyPilotStore. If

acceptance as an Affiliate Site, we will make available to you a
variety of graphic and textual links (the "Links"),
which, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, you may
display as often and in as many areas of your site as you
desire. The Links will serve to identify your site as a member
of our Affiliate Network and will establish a link from your
site to ours.
will process Product orders placed by customers who follow Special
Links from your site to our site. We reserve the right to reject
orders that do not comply with any requirements that we may
establish periodically. We will be responsible for all aspects of
order processing and fulfillment. Among other things, we will
prepare order forms, process payments, cancellations, and returns,
and handle customer service. We will track sales made to customers
who purchase Products by using Special Links from your site to our
site and will make available to you reports summarizing this sales
activity. The form, content, and frequency of the reports may vary
from time to time in our discretion.
We will pay you referral fees on certain Product sales to third parties. For a Product sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must follow a Special Link from your site to our site, select and purchase the Product using our automated ordering system, accept delivery of the Product at the shipping destination, and remit full payment to us. We will not, however, pay referral fees on any Products that are added to a customer's Shopping Cart after the customer has reentered our site (other than through a Special
Link from you), as determined by us, even if the customer previously followed a link from your site to our site, or for Products that are purchased through any device (an "Internet Access Appliance") that provides Internet access but does not present our site, or permit users to access and interact with our site, in the same manner as a desktop computer (e.g., mobile devices such as cellular telephones or PDAs that may access only limited or modified versions of our site). In addition,
on chart subscriptions or
other re-occurring sales, you will receive 5% of the initial
You will earn
referral fees based on Qualifying Revenues according to referral fee
schedules to be established by us. "Qualifying Revenues" are
revenues derived by us from our sales of Qualifying Products,
excluding costs for shipping, handling, gift-wrapping, taxes,
service charges, credit card processing fees, and bad debt. Referral
fees are limited to a maximum of $20 per item, regardless of the Qualifying Revenues derived from the sale of any such item.
You may not purchase products during sessions initiated through the links on your site for your own use, for resale or commercial use of any kind. This includes orders for customers or on behalf of customers or orders for products to be used by you. Such purchases may result (in our sole discretion) in the withholding of referral fees or the termination of this Agreement. Products that are eligible to earn referral fees under the rules set forth above are referred to as "Qualifying Products."
- $0.05 per click that you refer from your site
for qualifying sites.
- Five percent
(5%) of Qualifying Revenue.
We will pay you referral fees on a quarterly basis. Approximately
thirty (30) days following the end of each calendar quarter, we will send you a check for the referral fees earned
on sales of Qualifying Products that were shipped during that quarter, less any taxes that we are required by law to
withhold. However, if the referral fees and bonus payable to you for any calendar quarter are less than $50, we will hold payment until the total amount due is at least $50 or (if earlier) until this Agreement is terminated. In calculating referral fees, we
will deduct the corresponding referral fee from your next quarterly
payment if a Product that generated a referral fee is returned by
the customer. If there is no subsequent payment, we will send you a
bill for the referral fee.
who buy products through this Program will be deemed to be customers
of MyPlane, Inc.. Accordingly, all MyPlane, Inc. rules, policies,
and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer
service, and product sales will apply to those customers. We may
change our policies and operating procedures at any time. For
example, we will determine the prices to be charged for products
sold under this Program in accordance with our own pricing policies.
Product prices and availability may vary from time to time. Because
price changes may affect Products that you already have listed on
your site, you may not include price information in your Product
descriptions. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to present
accurate information, but we cannot guarantee the availability or
price of any particular product.
In order to ensure high quality traffic, your Per Click Commissions
will be limited to a maximum of 50% of the total sales commissions
generated in any given period. For example, if you generated
$100 in sales commissions in a given period and $200 in Per Click
Commissions, your Per Click Commissions would be limited to $50.00
(50% of $100) giving you a a total payment of $150.00.
