Herbstrong Strong Squad Program Agreement
These are the terms and conditions for joining our Strong Squad Program. The terms of this agreement are subject to change without prior notice, but we will try to notify you of such changes in advance. PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY.
1. Applying for our Program
You are applying for our Strong Squad (Affiliate) Program. We reserve the right to decline or remove enrollment from our program at our discretion. As soon as your application is accepted, you can start sharing your affiliate link and earning affiliate commissions.
2. Affiliate Commissions
Each link provided by Herbstrong 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. Our social sharing shortcuts have your affiliate link embedded in their posts.
When a prospect visits our site from your affiliate link, we will be able to register their purchase (if/when they make one), and credit the sale to you.
As your referrals generate sales, you will earn affiliate commissions. Please contact our affiliate manager for the most up-to-date commission percentages.
Commission checks are issued once a month after 1 month of purchase. This is to make sure that the customer doesn't return the product during our money-back period. We can pay you via PayPal, Check, or other preferred methods of payment.
a) Search Engine Marketing. We already run search engine marketing (SEM) campaigns on Google; therefore, we ask our affiliates not to run SEM campaigns for our products and services on Google.
To clarify the availability of campaigns on secondary search engines, please contact our affiliate manager.
PLEASE DO NOT DO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING - THESE ACTIONS WILL RESULT IN TERMINATION FROM THE PROGRAM:
• Send unsolicited email messages (be sure to only send email to friends/family who you have permission to email) * Please ensure all emails have an "opt out" option*
Advertise unreasonable or unsubstantiated results;
Use any celebrity names (such as Oprah, Dr. Oz, etc.) without their approval;
Use any news source logos (such as CNN, Fox News, etc.) without their approval;
Utilize fake news source websites (where it appears to be an objective report);
Create any false sense of urgency (such as stating that the stock may run out); or
• Use any fake testimonials (where the writer did not review the specific product).
4. User-Generated Content
The affiliate agrees that you will not: (i) submit material that is copyrighted, protected by trade secret or otherwise subject to third party proprietary rights, including privacy and publicity rights, unless you are the owner of such rights or have permission from their rightful owner to post the material and to grant Herbstrong all of the rights granted herein; (ii) publish falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage Herbstrong or any third party; (iii) submit material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, pornographic, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate; or (iv) post advertisements or solicitations of business.
Additionally, all affiliates agree to represent Herbstrong in a positive manner and to maintain the dignity of the brand. Any and all conversations on social media, email, phone, or in person regarding Herbstrong should NOT be unlawful, obscene, defamatory, threatening, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or is otherwise inappropriate.
If any Herbstrong staff find out about any content or conversations that are not reflecting the brand properly, the affiliate account will be put on hold while an investigation is conducted. If the staff deem the agreement to be breached, the affiliation with Herbstrong will be terminated immediately and all mention of Herbstrong must be removed from social media, email signatures, and any other personal platforms.
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.
We can end this relationship at any time, and so can you. This affiliate agreement has been designed to ensure the highest quality relationship between us. Hopefully, we have demonstrated our obligations for you to become a highly prosperous Affiliate.
