This agreement describes the entire terms and conditions for participation in the Retirement Calculator, Inc. Affiliate Program. In this agreement, the term "Participant" refers to you (the applicant), and "sponsoring website" refers to the website from which you will link to Retirement Calculator, Inc. Wherever the agreement refers to "you" or "your", it means "the Participant"; "we" or "our" refer to Retirement Calculator, Inc. and the terms "product" or "products" refer to the Retirement Calculator. You can add or remove links at any time: You may add as many links to the Retirement Calculator, Inc. website, or remove such links, at anytime and without prior approval from Retirement Calculator, Inc. Referral Fee Qualifying Product: Retirement Calculator Version 3.0 software sold by Retirement Calculator, Inc. originating from a special link or links at your sponsoring website qualify to earn you referral fees. The following product will be considered a "qualifying product":

Product that meets the following criteria:
Product sold to customers who follow a special link from your sponsoring website to our site and submit that order by using the Retirement Calculator, Inc. online order form.

The following product will not be considered qualifying for referral fees:
Retirement Calculator Version 3.0 sold through any other special link to our site other than the specific URL's that you are assigned to your sponsoring website.

Referral Fee Amount: The purchase price of referral fee qualifying product will count toward the total sales during the calendar month in which such product is sold. Only qualifying product that is sold by Retirement Calculator, Inc., sent (e-mail, download, electronic data interchange EDI) to a customer and for which Retirement Calculator, Inc. has received full payment will qualify for a referral fee.

The total of such Business to Consumer sales in any given month will generate referral fees, based upon the applicable flat rate referral fee, according to the following schedule:

Business to Consumer: $7.50 referral fee for online orders. Once you have reached 10 sales each month, you're referral fee will increase to $10.00.
For example, suppose you sell 100 Retirement Calculators during a 30-day month at $24.95 per Retirement Calculator. That's $2495 in sales, for which your referral fee will be: $1000.00

100 orders online = $1000.00
Total = $1000.00

In addition to your referral fee Retirement Calculator, Inc. will pay a bonus for affiliates that sign the Retirement Calculator, Inc. Affiliate program under you which means by recruiting more affiliates you earn a $5.00 bonus for every affiliate that signs up under you.
For example, suppose you sign up 25 affiliates under you in the same 30-day month at no cost to the new affiliate you will receive an additional $125.00 dollars that month.

25 affiliates under you = $125.00 Bonus + $1000.00 Referral Fee = $1125.00 Total

Referral Fee Payment: Retirement Calculator, Inc. will send a referral fee check for the applicable referral fee approximately 5 days after the 1st of each calendar month. A statement of customer purchase activity to the Participant will be sent each quarter of the calendar year.
