Terms and Conditions

This Affiliate Program Agreement (the “Agreement”) is made and entered into by and between Detailed Vehicle History (“Detailed Vehicle History” or “we”), and the party submitting an application to become a Detailed Vehicle History affiliate (“Partner”). The terms and conditions contained in this Agreement apply to Partner’s participation withdetailedvehiclehistory.com/affiliate-program (“Affiliate Program”). In connection with the Affiliate Program, Partners may see offers (each, an “Offer”) by Detailed Vehicle History or a third party (each such third party a “Client”) that may link to a specific web site for that particular Offer (“Program Web Site”). Furthermore, each Offer may have additional terms that are incorporated as part of this Agreement. By submitting an application or participating in an Offer, Partner expressly consents to all the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the individual accepting this Agreement represents that he or she has the authority to bind the Partner to the terms of this Agreement.

Enrollment in the Affiliate Program

Partner must submit a Affiliate Program application from Detailed Vehicle History’s website. Partner must provide accurate and complete information in Partner’s application. After Detailed Vehicle History reviews Partner’s application, Detailed Vehicle History will notify Partner of Partner’s acceptance or rejection to the Affiliate Program. Detailed Vehicle History may accept or reject Partner’s application at Detailed Vehicle History’s sole discretion for any reason.

Obligations of the Parties

Subject to Detailed Vehicle History’s acceptance of Partner as an affiliate and Partner’s continued compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Detailed Vehicle History agrees as follows:
  1. Detailed Vehicle History will make available to Partner via the Affiliate Program graphic and textual links to the Program Web Site and/or other creative materials (collectively, the “Links”) which Partner may display on web sites owned or controlled by Partner, in emails sent by Partner and in online advertisements (collectively, “Media”). The Links will serve to identify Partner as a member of Detailed Vehicle History’s Affiliate Program and will establish a link from Partner’s Media to the Program Web Site.
  2. Detailed Vehicle History will pay Partner for each Qualified Action (the “Commission”). A “Qualified Action” means an individual person who (i) accesses the Program Web Site via the Link, where the Link is the last link to the Program Web Site, (ii) is not a computer generated user, such as a robot, spider, computer script or other automated, artificial or fraudulent method to appear like an individual, real live person (as determined by Detailed Vehicle History), (iii) is not using pre-populated fields, (iv) completes all of the information required for such action within the time period allowed by Detailed Vehicle History, and (v) is not later determined by Detailed Vehicle History to be fraudulent, incomplete, unqualified or a duplicate user.
  3. Detailed Vehicle History will pay Partner any Commissions earned on a monthly basis, provided that the total Commissions to be paid by Detailed Vehicle History  is greater than $25. Accounts with a balance of less than $25 will roll over to the next month and will continue to roll over monthly until the $25 minimum is reached. Detailed Vehicle History reserves the right to charge back to Partner’s account any previously paid Qualified Actions that are later found not to have met the requirements to be a Qualified Action.
  4. Payment of Commissions is dependent upon Clients providing such funds to Detailed Vehicle History, and therefore, Partner agrees that Detailed Vehicle History shall only be liable to Partner for Commissions to the extent that Detailed Vehicle History has received such funds from the Clients.
  5. Detailed Vehicle History shall automatically generate an invoice on behalf of Partner for all Commissions payable under this Agreement and shall remit payment to Partner based upon that invoice. All tracking of Links and determinations of Qualified Actions and Commissions shall be made by Detailed Vehicle History in its sole discretion. In the event that Partner disputes in good faith any portion of an invoice, Partner must submit that dispute to Detailed Vehicle History in writing and in sufficient detail within thirty (30) days of the date on the invoice. If Partner does not dispute the invoice as set forth herein, then Partner agrees that it irrevocably waives any claims or challenges based upon that invoice. In the event that Partner is also tracking Qualified Actions and Partner claims a discrepancy, Partner must provide Detailed Vehicle History with Partner’s reports within three (3) days after the 30th day of the calendar month, and if Detailed Vehicle History’s and Partners reported statistics vary by more than 10% and Detailed Vehicle History reasonably determines that Partner has used generally accepted industry methods to track Qualified Actions, then Detailed Vehicle History and Partner agree to make a good faith effort to arrive at a reconciliation. If the parties are unable to arrive at a reconciliation, then Detailed Vehicle History’s numbers shall govern.
  6. If Partner has an outstanding balance due to Detailed Vehicle History under this Agreement or any other agreement between the Partner and Detailed Vehicle History, whether or not related to the Affiliate Program, Partner agrees that Detailed Vehicle History may offset any such amounts due to Detailed Vehicle History from amounts payable to Partner under this Agreement.
Partner also agrees that:
  1. It has sole responsibility for the development, operation, and maintenance of, and all content on or linked to, the Media.
  2. All materials posted on the Media or otherwise used in connection with the Affiliate Program (i) are not illegal, (ii) do not infringe upon the intellectual property or personal rights of any third party, and (iii) do not contain or link to any material which is harmful, threatening, defamatory, obscene, sexually explicit, harassing, promotes violence, promotes discrimination (whether based on sex, religion, race, ethnicity, nationality, disability or age), promotes illegal activities (such as gambling), contains profanity or otherwise contains materials that Detailed Vehicle History informs Partner that it considers objectionable (collectively, “Objectionable Content”).
  3. It will not make any representations, warranties or other statements concerning Detailed Vehicle History or Client or any of their respective products or services, except as expressly authorized herein.
  4. The Media does not copy or resemble the look and feel of the Program Web Site or create the impression that the Media is endorsed by Detailed Vehicle History or Clients or a part of the Program Web Site, without prior written permission from Detailed Vehicle History.
  5. It will comply with all (i) obligations, requirements and restrictions under this Agreement and (ii) laws, rules and regulations as they relate to its business, its Media or its use of the Links.
  6. It will comply with the terms, conditions, guidelines and policies of any third-party services used by Partner in connection with the Affiliate Program, including but not limited to, email providers, social networking services and ad networks.
  7. It will always prominently post and make available to end-users, including prior to the collection of any personally identifiable information, a privacy policy in compliance with all applicable laws that clearly and thoroughly discloses all information collection, use and sharing practices, including providing for the collection of such personally identifiable information in connection with the Affiliate Program and the provision of such personally identifiable information to Detailed Vehicle History and Clients for use as intended by Detailed Vehicle History and Clients.

Partner shall filter its email list by removing any entries appearing on the Suppression List and will only send emails to the remaining addresses on its email list. Detailed Vehicle History will provide an opt-out method in all Links, however, if any opt-out requests come directly to Partner, Partner shall immediately forward them to Detailed Vehicle History at support@detailedvehiclehistory.com. Partner’s emails containing the Links may not include any content other than the Links, except as required by applicable law.
    1. Partner agrees that failure to download the Suppression List and remove all emails from the database before mailing may result in Commission withholdings, removal or suspension from all or part of the Affiliate Program, possible legal action and any other rights or remedies available to Detailed Vehicle History pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise. Partner further agrees that it will not mail or market to any suppression files generated through the Detailed Vehicle History network, and that doing so may result in Commission withholdings, removal or suspension from the Affiliate Program, possible legal action and any other rights or remedies available to Detailed Vehicle History pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise.
  2. Advertising Campaigns. No Links can appear to be associated with or be positioned on chat rooms or message or bulletin boards unless otherwise agreed by Detailed Vehicle History in writing. Any pop-ups/unders used for the Affiliate Program shall be clearly identified as being served by Partner in the title bar of the window and any client-side ad serving software used by Partner shall only have been installed on an end-user’s computer if the function of the software is clearly disclosed to end-users prior to installation, the installation is pursuant to an affirmatively accepted and plain-English end user license agreement and the software be easily removed according to generally accepted methods.
  3. Partner Network Campaigns. For all Partners that maintain their own partner networks, Partner agrees to place the Links in its partner network (the “Partner Network”) for access and use by those partners in the Partner Network (each a “Third Party Partner”). Partner agrees that it will expressly forbid any Third Party Partner to modify the Links in any way. Partner agrees to maintain its Partner Network according to the highest industry standards. Partner shall not permit any party to be a Third Party Partner whose web site or business model involves content containing Objectionable Content. All Third Party Partners must be in good standing with Partner.

Partner shall promptly terminate any Third Party Partner who takes, or could reasonably be expected to take, any action that violates the terms and conditions of this Agreement. In the event that either party suspects any wrongdoing by a Third Party Partner with respect to the Links, Partner shall promptly disclose to Detailed Vehicle History the identity and contact information for such Third Party Partner. Partner shall promptly remove any Third Party Partner from the Affiliate Program and terminate their access to future Offers of Detailed Vehicle History in the Partner Network upon written notice from Detailed Vehicle History. Partner shall remain liable for all acts or omissions of any Third Party Partner.
