Tidant Partner Program Agreement
Welcome to Tidant’s website for Partners, where you can manage your affiliate marketing relationship with the relevant Tidant entities as set forth in Schedule 1 (“Tidant” or “us” or similar terms).
Any person or entity that participates or attempts to participate in our partner marketing program (the “Partner Program” and such person or entity, “you”, or a “Partner”) must accept this Partners Program Operating Agreement (this “Agreement”) without change. By registering for or using the Partners Site, you agree to this Agreement, including the Program Policies (defined in Section 12), which are incorporated by reference (for example, our Partners Program Participation Requirements, Partners Program IP License, Partners Program Fee Statement, and Partners Program Trademark Guidelines.) Please read them carefully.
- Description of the Partners Program
The Partners Program permits you to monetize your website, social media user-generated content, or online software application (referred to here as your “Site“), by placing on your Site links to a Tidant Site in Schedule 1 or, if applicable for the location, any other site which is included in the Partners Program Fee Statement (each a “Tidant Site“). The links must properly use the special “tagged” link formats we provide and comply with this Agreement (“Special Links“)
When our customers click through the Special Links to purchase an item sold or services offered on the Tidant Site or take other actions, you can receive program fees for qualifying purchases, as further described in (and subject to the limitations in) the Partners Program Fee Statement. In order to facilitate your advertisement of these items or services, we may make available to you data, images, text, link formats, widgets, links, marketing content, and other linking tools, application program interfaces, and other information in connection with the Partners Program (“Program Content“). Program Content specifically excludes any data, images, text, or other information or content relating to product offerings on any site other than the Tidant Site.
- Partners Program Compliance Requirements
You must comply with this Agreement to participate in the Partners Program and receive fees.
You must promptly provide us with any information that we request to verify your compliance with this Agreement.
If you violate this Agreement, or if you violate terms and conditions of any other applicable Tidant marketing agreement, then, in addition to any other rights or remedies available to us, we reserve the right to permanently (to the extent permitted by applicable law) withhold (and you agree you will not be eligible to receive) any and all fees otherwise payable to you under this Agreement, whether or not directly related to such violation without notice and without prejudice to any right of Tidant to recover damages in excess of this amount.
- Tidant Customers
Our customers are not, by virtue of your participation in the Partners Program, your customers. As between you and us, all pricing, terms of sale, rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service, and product sales set forth on the Tidant Site will apply to those customers and may be changed at any time. You will not handle or address any contacts with any of our customers, and, if contacted by any of our customers for a matter relating to interaction with a Tidant Site, you will state that those customers must follow contact directions on that Tidant Site to address customer service issues.
You represent, warrant, and covenant that (a) you will participate in the Partners Program and create, maintain, and operate your Site in accordance with this Agreement, (b) neither your participation in the Partners Program nor your creation, maintenance, or operation of your Site will violate any applicable laws, ordinances, rules, regulations, orders, licenses, permits, guidelines, codes of practice, industry standards, self-regulatory rules, judgments, decisions, or other requirements of any governmental authority that has jurisdiction over you (including all such rules governing communications, data protection, advertising, and marketing), (c) you are lawfully able to enter into contracts (e.g. you are not a minor or otherwise legally prevented from contracting), (d) you have independently evaluated the desirability of participating in the Partners Program and are not relying on any representation, guarantee, or statement other than as expressly set forth in this Agreement, (e) you will not participate in the Partners Program or use any other Service Offerings if you are the subject of U.S. sanctions or of sanctions consistent with U.S. law imposed by the governments of the country where you are using any Service Offering; (f) you will comply with all U.S. export and re-export restrictions, and applicable non-US export and re-export restrictions consistent with U.S. law, that may apply to goods, software, technology and services, and (g) the information you provide in connection with the Partners Program is accurate and complete at all times. You can update your information by logging into your account on the Partners Site and selecting “Account Settings”.
We do not make any representation, warranty, or covenant regarding the amount of traffic or fees you can expect at any time in connection with the Partners Program, and we will not be liable for any actions you undertake based on your expectations.
- Identifying Yourself as a Partner
You must clearly state the following, or any substantially similar statement previously allowed under this Agreement, on your Site or any other location where Tidant may authorize your display or other use of Program Content: “As a Tidant Partner I earn from qualifying purchases.” Except for this disclosure, you will not make any public communication with respect to this Agreement or your participation in the Partners Program without our advance written permission. You will not misrepresent or embellish our relationship with you (including by expressing or implying that we support, sponsor, or endorse you), or express or imply any affiliation between us and you or any other person or entity except as expressly permitted by this Agreement.
- Term and Termination
The term of this Agreement will begin upon your registration for or use of the Partners Site. Either you or we may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause (automatically and without recourse to the courts, if permitted under applicable law), by giving the other party written notice of termination provided that the effective date of such termination will be 7 calendar days from the date notice is provided. You can provide termination notice by logging into your account on the Partners Site and selecting the option to close your account in “Account Settings”. In addition, we may terminate this Agreement or suspend your account immediately upon written notice to you for any of the following: (a) you are in material breach of this Agreement, (b) you otherwise fail to cure within 7 days of our notice to you regarding any other breach of this Agreement (including any Program Policy); (c) we believe that we may face potential claims or liability in connection with your participation in the Partners Program; (d) we believe that our brand or reputation may be tarnished by you or in connection with your participation in the Partners Program; (e) your participation in the Partners Program has been used for deceptive, fraudulent or illegal activity; (f) we believe that we are or may become subject to tax collection requirements in connection with this Agreement or the activities performed by either party under this Agreement; (g) we have previously terminated this Agreement (or suspended your account) with respect to you or other persons that we determine are affiliated with you or acting in concert with you for any reason, or (h) we have terminated the Partners Program as we generally make it available to participants. For the avoidance of doubt and without limitation for purposes of the foregoing subsection (a) any violation of Section 5 and as specified in the Program Policies will be deemed a material breach of this Agreement.
We may hold accrued unpaid advertising fees for a reasonable period of time following termination to ensure that the correct amount is paid (for example, to account for any cancelations or returns).
Upon any termination of this Agreement, all rights and obligations of the parties will be extinguished, including any and all licenses granted in connection with this Agreement, except that the rights and obligations of the parties under Sections 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, and 11 of this Agreement and as specified in the Program Policies, together with any payable but unpaid payment obligations under this Agreement, will survive the termination of this Agreement. No termination of this Agreement will relieve either party for any liability for any breach of, or liability accruing under, this Agreement prior to termination.

However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of this Agreement as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent, Corporation Service Company, 300 Deschutes Way SW, Suite 304, Tumwater, WA 98051. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, we will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, we may seek injunctive or other relief in any state, federal, or national court of competent jurisdiction for any actual or alleged infringement of our or any other person or entity’s intellectual property or proprietary rights. You further acknowledge and agree that our rights in the Program Content are of a special, unique, extraordinary character, giving them peculiar value, the loss of which cannot be readily estimated or adequately compensated for in monetary damages.
