Enrolment in the Programme
To begin the enrolment process, you will submit a complete Affiliate Application via our site. We will evaluate your application in good faith and will notify you of your acceptance or rejection upon the conditions set out in this Agreement. We may reject your application at our sole discretion without obligation to provide a reason.
Lazu will make available HTML code and script for affiliate links which may be included on the Affiliate’s website or websites for the purpose of referring customers to the Lazu retail site.
All images used in affiliate banners shall be served from the Lazu server and Lazu reserves the right to change or rotate banners at any time and without prior notification.
Lazu will make its best endeavour not to rotate banners in such a manner that disrupts the layout of the Affiliate’s website, e.g. change of size. However, Lazu reserves the right to discontinue any particular size of banner at 30 days’ notice.
All content of affiliate links is copyright to Lazu and is the intellectual property of Lazu.
Affiliates may not modify the code or content of affiliate links without permission in writing or email from Lazu.
Lazu shall be entitled to, at any time and without notice add further products to the programme and remove obsolete and/or discontinued products.
Customers who purchase products through the Programme will be deemed to be customers of Lazu. Accordingly, all the Lazu rules, policies and operating procedures concerning those products, including the dispute policy will apply to those customers.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you will be paid referral fees for each unique user who, having been referred from your site through an affiliate link, successfully purchases a retail product or service from Lazu’s site.
For the purposes of this Agreement Lazu will be the sole judge of the number and amount of sales generated by unique users referred from your site using the affiliate link. All contact of whatever nature with referred clients shall be carried out by Lazu.
The applicable affiliate fee will be calculated using the referral fee rate applicable at the time of purchase of the qualifying product. The affiliate fee will be calculated on the US Dollar price of the product regardless of the price for the product or service in the currency with which it was purchased. The affiliate fee will be paid in US Dollars.
Lazu reserves the right to offer at its sole discretion variant rates to different classes of affiliates in recognition of the volume of business provided and such other matters that Lazu considers appropriate.
Limitations of Technology
Lazu is not able to control the circumstances under which customers who click your affiliate links operate their computers. Security settings and firewalls on the customer’s system may prevent us from receiving a referral, and cookies may be deleted from the customer’s computer by security software or by direct action. Therefore Lazu cannot accept any liability for failure to track a referral.
Like any service on the Internet, the Lazu Affiliate site may from time to time be unavailable and unable to record purchases which result from an affiliate referral. Lazu is not liable for affiliate fees lost in such circumstances.
Suitable Display of Affiliate Links
You must, upon request, inform Lazu of all Internet URLs on which affiliate links are displayed.
You must not include affiliate links on web pages which:
- Promote or contain or link to material which is illegal.
- Promote violence.
- Promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age.
- Promote illegal activities.
- Violate or potentially violate the intellectual property rights or trademarks of any third party.
- Contain any libellous, defamatory or disparaging materials or materials which are potentially so.
- Contain little or no original content.
- Bring or have the potential to bring Lazu or any retailer into disrepute.
- Contain affiliate links to a competitor for any product promoted by Lazu’s affiliate links.
- Any other page that Lazu in its sole discretion deems inappropriate from time to time.
Your site maybe subject to periodic review. If we determine at any point after acceptance into our Programme that a web page carrying an affiliate link is not suitable for the Programme, we may suspend service for that URL or the entire site at our discretion, or terminate this Agreement.
You must not engage in spamming or any other activity that might cause damage to our brand name and reputation, either directly or via your website.
You may not operate at any time to conceal or misrepresent your identity, your domain name or your return email address. You must not engage in mass emailing unless to existing clients of your business who have authorised the sending of such emails.
Any breach of any of these standards may give rise to us deciding to immediately terminate this Agreement with you without prior notice.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement you will be paid the referral fees by direct credit to the Paypal account that you specify.
Any referral fees due will be paid out monthly but if the amount due is less than $200.00 it will be accumulated and carried forward into succeeding months until the referral fees earned exceed this amount.
All referral fees are subject to adjustment for cancellation, fraudulent credit card use or similar cases.
Lazu may delay payment of any referral fees where it suspects that the transaction for which the fees are to be paid may be fraudulent or otherwise improperly earned.
All affiliate fees are exclusive of Sales Tax.
