Affiliate Program - Terms and Conditions
DISCLAIMER: Content made available on www.tinyeasy.co.nz is for general information purposes only. Although all Materials have been drafted by a team of knowledgeable design experts and regularly undergo reviews and updates, Materials are created for a large range of users from many different countries that all have different laws and requirements for tiny homes. Accordingly, the information contained in the Materials does not constitute architectural advice, nor are they a substitute for architectural advice. Furthermore, any assistance and customer support provided by us does not establish an architect-client relationship. Tiny Easy cannot guarantee the Materials will be compliant with any applicable law in your jurisdiction. Our Materials are intended to provide ideas and inspiration, but you cannot rely on the Materials for your tiny home project — you must seek advice from engineers, licensed building practitioners, and/or architects in your country. Before purchasing any Materials it is your sole responsibility to determine the legal requirements and restrictions attached to tiny homes in your country and any compliance issues that you might encounter.

Responsibility for the security of any user names and passwords issued (including those of any Invitees) rests with you.

2.3 You will be solely responsible for the development, operation, and maintenance of your site and for all materials that appear on your site

2.5 You may not issue any press release with respect to this Agreement or your participation in the Program; such action may result in your termination from the Program. In addition, you may not in any manner misrepresent or embellish the relationship between us and you, say you develop our products, say you are part of Tiny Easy or express or imply any relationship between us and you or any other person or entity, except as expressly permitted by this Agreement.
3. Referral Fees
3.1 For the sale of a product to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must click through a link from your site, email, or other communications to the Tiny Easy website and purchase within 90 days of the initial click-through. If they fail to purchase within those 90 days and later return without following your link, you will not earn a referral fee.
3.2 We will only pay referral fees on links that are automatically tracked and reported by our systems. For our systems to track the referral, the visitor must have cookies enabled. We will not pay referral fees if someone says they signed up through you but it was not tracked by our system.
3.3 The referral fee is 30% of our revenue from customers that you refer. The referral fee will be credited to your Affiliate account once the customer pays for their product. Referral fees are only earned if a customer makes a payment in full.
4.1 Accrued referral fees are paid via bank transfer roughly once per month and only when your accrued referral fees total 100USD or more. The Affiliate will then raise an invoice to Easy Software for the indicated amount. You must have a valid bank account to receive referral fees, as we do not offer payment via cheque/check, credit card, cash, or any other method.
4.2 Customer payments refunded or payments charged back due to credit card fraud do not qualify for referral fees. We may delay crediting of referral fees subject to risk analysis considerations and Anti-Money Laundering procedures.
4.3 A summary of purchases and statement of referral fees is available to the Affiliate by logging into their Affiliate account.
4.4 The referral fee structure is subject to change at our discretion.
4.5 We reserve the right to disqualify referral fees earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods.
4.6 All fees are exclusive of all taxes, charges, levies, assessments, and other fees of any kind imposed on your involvement in this Agreement and shall be the responsibility of, and payable by you.
