Affiliate Agreement
Updated May, 2020

Ellevon Productions Affiliate Agreement 


Ellevon Productions LLC ("Ellevon") may offer you an opportunity to become an independent Ellevon Affiliate (“Affiliate”), wherein you have the opportunity to earn additional money for Ellevon products, services and accounts that you sell. Ellevon reserves the sole and exclusive right to determine the amount of remuneration each Affiliate will receive in exchange for the Affiliate’s efforts. Affiliate commission is further discussed herein. See also Terms of Service, which apply to you in your role as Affiliate, unless otherwise expressly provided for.   

This Affiliate Agreement (“Agreement”) governs Your application for, and any subsequent participation in, Ellevon’s Affiliate program. By clicking “I Accept the Terms and Conditions” and submit, You thereby accept the terms of this Agreement, You indicate that You have read and understood this Agreement, and agree that You are bound by its terms. 

SECTION 1 - PARTIES 
 All references to “Ellevon” herein means and refers to Ellevon Productions LLC, doing business as Ellevon and including www.EditingRecipes.com. All references to “You” and “Your” mean and refer to the person or entity who has executed this Agreement. Ellevon and You are each referred to herein as a “Party,” and collectively as the “Parties.”

SECTION 2 - APPLICATION 
 You agree to provide all information requested by Ellevon in connection with Your Affiliate application, and You affirm that all information that You provide is truthful and accurate. You understand and agree that Ellevon retains sole and exclusive discretion to determine whether You qualify for participation in Ellevon’ Affiliate program. Not everyone who applies for Ellevon’ Affiliate program will qualify to participate.  

SECTION 3 - CONSENT TO BE CONTACTED 
 You expressly consent to be contacted at the email address and the phone number You provide in Your application about Your application and the Affiliate program, including through automated dialing systems, texts and artificial or pre-recorded messages. This consent is a material condition of this Agreement and may not be revoked except in writing by both Parties.
 
SECTION 4 - COMPENSATION
 If Your application to become an Affiliate is approved by Ellevon, You will receive a unique Affiliate ID. The Affiliate ID will be incorporated within each URL which You will use to advertise Ellevon. You will have the opportunity to receive a commission for each sale (“Sale”) that is registered using Your Affiliate ID. 

In the event that a prospect (“Prospect”) has multiple Affiliate cookies (“Cookies”), the most recently-acquired Cookie will determine which Affiliate is credited with a Sale. There are some products and services sold that do not have trial periods.

Provided that the Sold Account (as defined below) remains in good status within thirty (30) days from the Sale, You will be paid a commission for each Sold Account that generates a payment to Ellevon in a month (“Commission”). Except as otherwise provided herein, Commission payments will be paid on the 1st and 15th of each month following Ellevon’s receipt of payment for a Sold Account, subject to the other terms of this Agreement. In the event the 1st or 15th of each month falls on a holiday, Commission payments will be paid on the business day preceding the holiday. All Commission payments are based on the amount of fees received by Ellevon, less sales taxes. 

All Commissions are paid in U.S. Dollars (USD) or otherwise in currencies offered by the payment provider. Some payment methods may incur processing fees that may be deducted from Your Commissions payment. 

Once a Commission of $100 (USD) or more is earned, You will need to register with our third-party payment provider to receive payment of Commissions. This means You are authorizing third party companies to contact You. Before You can be paid any Commission, You must provide Ellevon a completed W-8 or W-9 tax form, as instructed by Ellevon, as well as any supporting documentation requested by Ellevon or its third-party payment provider. You will be deemed to have permanently waived all rights to Commissions that were earned more than 120 days before submitting a completed W-8 or W-9 tax form or any ancillary supporting documentation that is requested to confirm the information on your tax form. If You are not a resident of the United States, Ellevon may withhold tax (including without limitation VAT) where required by applicable law. You are solely responsible for complying with all tax laws in Your respective jurisdiction(s) including, but not limited to, the payment of all required taxes, and filing of all returns and other required documents with, the applicable governing body(ies). 

Affiliates will not be paid any Commissions for payments made on Affiliate’s own user account(s). Affiliates are not permitted to open a Ellevon account under the name of another person or entity, under a fictitious name, or under any name merely for the purpose of obtaining Commissions or any other compensation. Affiliates may not pay for another person’s or entity’s account. Affiliates are not permitted to offer cash rebates or other monetary incentives to obtain Sales.
 
Commissions are paid only for transactions that actually occur between Ellevon and a Sale and in which payment is received by Ellevon. If payment for a Sold Account later results in a refund or chargeback, and if a Commission was paid to You for that Sold Account  payment, then the Commission will be deducted from Your future Commissions.

If Ellevon determines, in its sole and exclusive discretion, that any Sale was procured fraudulently or as a result of any violation of this Agreement or applicable law, no Commission will be paid for such Sale and, for past sales, such payment amounts shall be deducted from Your future Commissions, and Ellevon may terminate this Agreement immediately without Ellevon having any liability to You.

SECTION 5 - TERM AND TERMINATION 
 The term of this Agreement will begin the earlier of (i) when You click “I accept the Terms and Conditions” and submit; or (ii) Your participation in the Affiliate program is approved. Your participation in the Ellevon Affiliate program will continue month-to-month until terminated. Either Party may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause, by giving the other Party thirty (30) days’ written notice of termination. If, in our sole discretion, You fail, or we suspect that You have failed, to comply with any term or provision of the Agreement or the Terms of Service, or violated any law, whether in connection with Your use of Ellevon or otherwise, we may terminate the Agreement or suspend Your access to the Affiliate website (“Website”) at any time without notice to You. In addition, if, based on our data, you have a dispute rate greater than 10%, we may terminate this Agreement or suspend your access to the Website at any time without notice to You. In such an instance, and in our sole discretion, we may also for the aforementioned reasons, terminate our relationship and suspend any accounts owned/controlled by You. For the avoidance of doubt, and without limitation for purposes of the foregoing, any violation of the required disclosure will be deemed a material breach of this Agreement. In the event this Agreement is canceled due to Your breach, You immediately forfeit all Commissions and any other payments owed to You or that may in the future be owed to You without any further liability by Ellevon to You. 

If this Agreement is terminated or canceled, then all provisions that, by their nature, should survive, will survive, including, but not necessarily limited to, all limitations of liability, disclaimers of warranties, indemnity obligations, mandatory arbitration and class action waiver provisions, and exceptions to arbitration. All representations and warranties undertaken by You shall also survive termination or cancellation of this Agreement and/or Your Ellevon or Editing Recipes account.
 

SECTION 6 - ADDITIONAL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES 
 In addition to Your other representations and warranties herein, You further represent and warrant that there are no prior or pending government investigations or inquiries of, or prosecutions against You by the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”), any other federal or state governmental agency, or any industry regulatory authority, anywhere in the world, nor any prior or pending private lawsuits against You which relate to alleged intentional torts or alleged violation of any consumer protection or advertising laws. If You become the subject of such an investigation, inquiry, prosecution, or lawsuit any time after this Agreement is executed, You are required to notify Ellevon of the same within 24 hours. Ellevon, in its sole and exclusive discretion, may immediately terminate Your participation in Ellevon’s Affiliate program, as well as immediately terminate this Agreement, based on any investigation, proceeding, or lawsuit identified pursuant to this paragraph.  


SECTION 7 - ENTIRE AGREEMENT
 This Agreement, Appendix A below, along with Ellevon’ standard Terms of Service, represents the entire agreement between the Parties and supersedes any other written or oral agreement between the Parties as pertaining to Your Affiliate application and, if approved, Your rights and responsibilities as an Affiliate.

These Advertising Rules apply to all activities of Affiliate: 

General Compliance.

Affiliate is prohibited from publishing or otherwise distributing advertisements by telemarketing, fax, or text messaging in any form to any device.

Affiliate may, however, offer Prospects information and materials of tangible value including, but not limited to, website templates, information about e-commerce, website design, and online marketing, for reduced or no charge, but only so long as Affiliate accurately describes and delivers such information and materials to the Prospect. Ellevon retains the sole and exclusive discretion to determine whether Affiliate’s advertising and conduct is in compliance with all laws.

Disclosure. On any website that Affiliate advertises any Ellevon service or product, Affiliate must plainly display (i.e., not in a link, or in small font) disclaimer language, such as:

Disclosure: I am an independent Ellevon Affiliate, not an employee. I receive referral payments from Ellevon. The opinions expressed here are my own and are not official statements of Ellevon Productions.

Non-Disparagement. 
 Affiliate is not permitted to comment negatively about or disparage the products or services of Ellevon or any other person or entity, including without limitation the products or services of an Ellevon competitor.

Affiliate shall not direct link to a Ellevon’s sales page from any paid advertising.


If Affiliate is advertising on social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, Instagram, YouTube), Affiliate must comply with all rules of each social media platform that Affiliate uses.

Income and Business Opportunity Claims. 
 Affiliates are expressly prohibited from making any claims that use of Ellevon will guarantee that the user will make money. If Affiliate’s recruiting efforts include claims related to income Affiliate has made from using Ellevon or as an Affiliate, the following guidelines must be adhered to:

(a) Affiliate’s statements must be completely true and accurate and supported by evidence of Affiliate’s experience; and 

(b) Affiliate’s statements must be accompanied by the following disclaimer in clear and conspicuous font and placement: “These were my results. Your results will vary based on a variety of factors including Your education, effort, and market factors. There is no guarantee You will make any money.”

Subject to the restrictions below, approved Affiliates are granted a limited, revocable, non-transferrable, and non-assignable license to use the “Editing Recipes™️” trademark, Registered with the USPTO, to advertise Ellevon and Editing Recipes online. Any time Affiliate uses the word "Editing Recipes" it must be immediately followed by “™️”. Affiliate may not use “Editing Recipes” or other Ellevon’s trademarks (including those at this link, which may be updated from time to time ) as part of any URL, domain or website name. 

Ellevon retains exclusive ownership of all Ellevon’s Trademarks and other intellectual property and all of its rights therein. Affiliate shall not promote or provide services to any other business or person that is infringing any of Ellevon’s intellectual property.

It is the express understanding and intention of the Parties that no relationship of master and servant nor principal and agent shall exist between Ellevon and You by virtue of this Agreement. You have no right to act on behalf of or bind Ellevon in any way, nor share in the profits or losses of Ellevon. The only compensation available to You is set forth in this Agreement. You are solely and exclusively responsible and liable for all of Your acts or omissions.

NO WARRANTY; NO LEADS.

You understand and agree further that this is not a business opportunity, a franchise opportunity, a “business-in-a-box,” or an assisted marketing plan. You are responsible for procuring and paying for any and all materials and resources necessary to operate as an Affiliate as You determine in Your sole discretion.
