Affiliate Program Terms & Conditions

By filling out the signup form you acknowledge that you have read, understood and agree with the terms and conditions below for the CaliConnected Affiliate Program.

1. Joining the Program: By completing the signup form you will automatically become an Affiliate and be bound by the terms of this agreement. Your participation in the program is solely for this purpose: to legally advertise our website and receive a commission on products purchased by your referral customers. Every Affiliate Account will be approved upon registration, CaliConnected holds the right to remove any Affiliate at any time.

2. Payment Schedule: All Affiliate monies due for orders generated as a result of Affiliate links/web site will be held for 30 days after the shipping date of an order. Orders are typically shipped 1-7 days after an order is placed. This allows us ample time to compensate for returns, exchanges or canceled orders. Once a payment request has been submitted, commissions will be calculated within 3-7 days and payment sent out to Affiliate. Payments will be made via PayPal. The initial payment must be at least $100.00 USD. All subsequent payments can be requested at any amount. Store Credit can also be issued upon request in lieu of payment. 3. Revocation of Affiliate Status: Your Affiliate application and status in the program may be suspended or terminated for any of the following reasons: 1. Inappropriate advertisements (false claims, misleading hyperlinks). 2. Spamming (mass email, mass newsgroup posting, etc...).

3. Advertising on sites containing/promoting illegal activities. 4. Violation of intellectual property rights. 5. Excessive amount of re-directing links (ex/ Site A links to Site B links to Site C links to Affiliate Site links to CaliConnected). 6. Sending traffic from a Coupon Website (ex/ Retailmenot.com). 7. Using Search Engine Advertising to send traffic (ex/ Google Adwords, Yahoo Advertising, Bing Advertising, etc.). 8. Any other reason that CaliConnected finds to be a violation of the Affiliate Program.

4. Affiliate Links: You may use graphic, text and social links on your web site and in emails. You may use the graphics and text provided from us or you may create your own (if they comply with the rules shown above).

5. Affiliate Tracking: When a visitor clicks through your Affiliate link, a cookie is set in their browser that contains your Affiliate code. In addition, their IP address is tracked in the database along with your Affiliate name. When this person decides to buy a product, the javascript will look for this cookie and/or try to match their IP address to identify the Affiliate, who will then be awarded the commission. Visitors sent through your Affiliate link may still make a purchase at a later time and the commission will still be awarded if the cookie is present in their browser and/or they are using the same IP address as the one logged in the database.

6. Terms of the agreement: These terms will begin upon signup with the Affiliate Program and end when your Affiliate account is terminated. The terms of this agreement may be modified by CaliConnected.com at any time with or without notice to the Affiliate. If any modification to the terms is unacceptable to the Affiliate, the Affiliate may terminate the account at any time. Your continuing participation in the program will constitute your acceptance of any changes. Affiliates must be able to provide and prove all sources (websites) for incoming traffic that result in eligible commissions.

7. Restrictions: Certain products and brands are not eligible for the 10% commission rate. These currently include products by Storz and Bickel (Volcano) and Herbalizer (5% commission rate). Any purchases resulting from a coupon code added to a third party website (retailmenot.com) will not earn a commission. We reserve the right to change these commission rates at any time. Affiliate monies are calculated with reference to the product price charged to the customer AFTER reduction of Shipping Costs and other fees.

8. Liability: We will not be liable for indirect or accidental damages (loss of revenue, commissions, etc.) due to Affiliate tracking failures, loss of database files, and any results of "intents of harm" to the program or our website.
