As an Affiliate Partner, we expect you to comply with all applicable rules, regulation laws, statutes, ordinances, codes, and guidelines, including those of the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) (collectively, “Applicable Laws”) and exhibit honesty and integrity when dealing with clients and prospective clients.
By participating in promoting (the “Promotion”) any of our products or programs (the “Products”) conducted by the Face Yoga Method (the “Promoter”), you (the “Affiliate Partner”) agree to abide by the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
Affiliate Partner must be 18 years or older to participate in Promotion. Promoter reserves the unconditional and irrevocable right to accept or deny any Affiliate Partner in its sole discretion or terminate anyone’s participation that enters the Promotion on the Promoter’s website at https://www.faceyogamethod.com/partner/ (the “Enrollment Site”) or who drives traffic to the Promoter’s marketing websites under the Face Yoga Method or enters the Promotion elsewhere. Promoter may terminate participation of any Affiliate Partner with or without cause.
Affiliate Partner agrees and understands that if its marketing, websites, emails, or any other communications associated with or for this Promotion are deemed inappropriate by Promoter for any reason, that Affiliate Partner will be deemed, at the sole discretion of Promoter, ineligible to participate in the Promotions and disqualified from receiving any recognition, commissions, prizes, or any other compensation or further communication from Promoter.
At the sole discretion of Promoter, Affiliate Partner will be immediately removed from this Promotion and from Promoter’s Affiliate Partner Program and will be in violation of this Agreement if its marketing for this Promotion or for its own sites:
a) promotes or links to sexually explicit or violent material;
b) promotes, depicts, or links to material that promotes or depicts discrimination based on race, gender, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, sexual orientation, or age;
c) contains unlawful material, including, but not limited to, materials that may violate another’s intellectual property rights or links to a site that contains such material;
d) contains information regarding, promotes, or links to a site that provides information or promotes illegal activity;
e) uses, without Promoter’s prior permission, Promoter’s intellectual property, including without limitation, videos, brochures, images, banners, likenesses, content, or brand name (collectively, “Promoter Property”) in or on their websites, thus creating market and consumer confusion (which is illegal and generally referred to as copyright or trademark infringement). To be clear, you may not use the Promoter Property as if it is your own on your own sites or any other sites, as it may cause customers to opt-in thinking they are opting in to our communications rather than yours. Clearly, the best practice to generate sales is to establish your own brand, identity, and sites, then to authentically recommend our program, not pretend to be us;
f) is otherwise deemed to be unsuitable by Promoter. Promoter reserves the right to disqualify Affiliate Partners from our Affiliate Partner program, cancel pending commissions based on inappropriate behavior or marketing by the Affiliate Partner, and amend this Promotion or Agreement at any time without notification to Affiliate Partner;
g) offers a cash incentive or discount on Products as a means of promotion;
h) Our Face Yoga Method Affiliate Partners are NOT authorized to teach the Face Yoga Method, unless they have passed our Teacher Certification Course.
To summarize, you can only use honest, ethical means for promoting our Products and if you have a creative idea about using the Face Yoga Method name or any of our Promoter Property in a unique way to promote our Products, please contact us first at email@example.com.
Promoter reserves the right to revoke Affiliate Partner standing at any time. If Promoter terminates Affiliate Partner from the Promotion for violation of this Agreement, Affiliate Partner will not receive any pending commission and will be disqualified from receiving any recognition, commissions, prizes or any other compensation from Promoter.
Spam and Unsolicited Email
Affiliate Partner agrees NOT to send any unsolicited email to any party during the Promotion. Promoter has ZERO tolerance toward any Affiliate Partner who spams any party or individual, period. If Affiliate Partner is caught spamming, they will be removed from the Promoter’s Affiliate Partner Program, and the Affiliate Partner’s commissions or pending commissions will be forfeited. Spam is defined as emailing or posting to anyone who has not requested information via email or any website, and also includes “spamming search engines” with links. As noted above, Affiliate Partner agrees to abide by all Applicable Laws, including without limitation, the CAN-SPAM Act.

Commissions will be paid once there is a balance of $100 or more. Smaller commissions will accumulate until the amount reaches the payout minimum ($100). Affiliate Partner commissions will not be paid based on any sales or amounts that are attributed to spam, credit card fraud, or returned Product. Promoter reserves the right to change the dates of the commission payout at any time.

Promoter is NOT responsible for Affiliate Partner using or maintaining his or her Affiliate Partner links, and only sales tracked through Promoter’s system will count towards Affiliate Partner’s commissions. All sales and commission numbers are tallied by Promoter, and credit due to Affiliate Partner and all the final sales and commission numbers are at the sole discretion of Promoter. Promoter makes every reasonable effort to accurately track and pay commissions for all sales that come from Affiliate Partners, but is not responsible, nor under any circumstances will be held liable for, any technical difficulties, outside events, actions by other affiliate partners, or other uncontrollable events that may disrupt or interfere with Promoter’s ability to track sales or pay commissions.
