We encourage you to contact your Affiliate Manager to discuss any aspects of the program at any time and explore new and unique opportunities for promotion. We are here to help you succeed.

2. Affiliate Commissions
Your affiliate dashboard is unique to you. It contains everything you'll need to promote our site and our product, including:
  • Your affiliate links
  • Creative Links
  • Banner downloads
As you send traffic to our website via your affiliate link, you will receive credit for each unique visitor and purchase you send our way. Your progress for each category of referral will be reflected in real-time on your affiliate dashboard.
Each link provided has an Affiliate ID attached. We can't track your sales and traffic without you posting the full URL, so please be sure to use your affiliate link. 
When a prospect visits our site from your affiliate link, we will be able to register their purchase and credit the sale to you. As your referrals generate sales, you will earn affiliate commissions. The amounts and total commissions are reported in your affiliate dashboard.
Commission checks are issued once a month on a net-15 schedule. As customers have a 30-day return policy, any commissions which are paid for a sale later reversed will be deducted from the next month's commission. We can pay you via company check, or via PayPal, whichever you prefer.
Affiliates are welcome to use their own affiliate link for making their own purchases and will be eligible for commissions provided the total self-purchases are less than 10% of all referred sales in the month. 
3. Fraud.
We actively monitor all traffic for Fraud. If we detect fraud, your account will be made inactive pending further investigation.
If you fraudulently add leads or clicks or inflate leads or clicks by fraudulent traffic generation (as determined solely by Company, such as pre- population of forms or mechanisms not approved by Company), you will forfeit your entire commission for all programs and your account will be terminated. Company reserves sole judgment in determining fraud, and you agree to this clause.
It is the OBLIGATION of the Affiliate to prove to Company that they are NOT committing fraud. Company will hold your payment in 'Pending Status' until you have satisfactorily provided evidence that you are not defrauding the system. We flag accounts that:
Have click-through rates that are much higher than industry averages and where solid justification is not evident.
Have ONLY click programs generating clicks with no indication by site traffic that it can sustain the clicks reported.
Have shown fraudulent leads as determined by our clients.
Use fake redirects, automated software, and/or fraud to generate clicks or leads from our programs.
 
3. Restrictions
PAID SEARCH (PPC) GUIDELINES. We welcome working closely with affiliates experienced in paid search and are always open to discussing unique and innovative opportunities. That said, here are the standard rules: You may not bid on any of our trademarked terms, including variations and misspellings, or bid on any trademarked terms in sequence with another keyword without express written permission from us. Our trademarked terms cannot be used in the display URL, and no ad title or ad copy may give the impression that your site is the HempMy Pet, LLC. site. Any ads must link directly to your own site, and automatic redirects to HempMy Pet site are not allowed. Please consult with your Affiliate Manager for any unique opportunities you wish to explore.
COUPON GUIDELINES. We will periodically make coupons available and only those issued directly to affiliates through the network or from your Affiliate Manager may be used by affiliates. The posting of coupons not issued to you, bogus coupons, or posting on sites not affiliated and approved for your account will result in the reversal of any associated coupons and possible termination of your account.
NEXUS AFFILIATE RESTRICTIONS. We expect all affiliates to be familiar with and comply with their local state affiliate nexus prohibitions where applicable and may require annually signed affidavits agreeing to such. This may currently include but may not be limited to the states of Arkansas, California, Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island. Prohibitions may include engaging in any solicitation activities in your state that refer potential customers to the HempMy Pet website including, but not limited to, distributing flyers, coupons, newsletters and other printed promotional materials or electronic equivalents, verbal soliciting (for example, in-person referrals), initiating telephone calls, and sending emails.

4. Disclosures
All affiliates must adhere to the rules and regulations set forth by the Federal Trade Commission, specifically regarding disclaimers about any paid compensation for the content or links referring to HempMy Pet, LLC. services and products. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has endorsement rules in place for affiliate marketing. In short, they want you to disclose that you have a business relationship with us when you promote and post your link. You can read the full FTC rules about affiliate marketing here.
When posting or sharing your link, you should make it known to your readers and followers that you will receive compensation if they buy a product via your link. This declaration should be clear and conspicuous (and reiterated as needed). Again, you can read the FTC rules (and their quick FAQ) here.
