How to get started
Please provide us with the following
information to get started.
By filling out the signup form, you acknowledge that you have read and agree with the terms and conditions associated with this affiliate program. This Affiliate Agreement will form a legally binding contract between you (the Affiliate) and SmiteWorks USA LLC (the Company), whereas the Affiliate will refer traffic to the Company and will be granted an agreed consideration; and
WHEREAS, you desire to participate in the Program, as evidenced by your application, which application the Company may approve or disapprove, at its sole discretion.
THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises herein, the Parties agree as follows:
It is understood that the Affiliate will introduce Company products and services to their current and prospective customers and will comply with all laws, including those that govern email marketing and anti-spam laws.
The Affiliate will be fully responsible for any costs related to maintaining or marketing the Affiliate Program, including but not limited to costs associated with creation, hosting, modification, or improvements to the Affiliate's website; cost of internet marketing; offline marketing costs; postage; and all other costs and expenses.
The Company reserves the right to accept or reject any prospective customers. It will pay the Affiliate a commission per customer referred using an affiliate code and according to a designated payment schedule for qualified purchases.
OSI Affiliates software records purchases generated from affiliate links through various means. The full nature of how this works is undisclosed, but it relies upon cookies that are set when a referral link is followed. These are recorded on the referred customer's device and a checkout from the Company storefront communicates with OSI affiliates to credit the Affiliate. The Company only records purchases for the main Company store page and not for any third-party orders, purchases from Steam, purchases from the self-publishing Forge system, Subscriptions, or other purchases. Purchases may not be credited to the Affiliate if the referred customer completes the purchase from a different device, they block the OSI cookie, or if the integration with OSI Affiliates and the Company is somehow interrupted. The Company has performed tests of successful integration with OSI Affiliates, but the Company makes no warranty as to the accuracy of the affiliate referrals. Qualified Purchases will be reflected instantly upon completion within the Affiliate's dashboard.
The Affiliate will act as an agent on behalf of the Company by placing links on their website(s) to direct traffic to the Company website(s) registered at (fantasygrounds.com). In addition, the Affiliate shall coordinate with the Company to carry out successfully the marketing, publicizing, and promotion of the Company's products or services.
Any Affiliate Program may be amended or terminated at any time. Information about the Affiliate Program will be available on the Company website. Accordingly, the Affiliate must keep themselves informed of any amendments of Affiliate Programs, particularly if a registered website has terminated its Affiliate Program or changed the conditions for remuneration to Affiliates.
The Affiliate promises and agrees to hold any confidential information in strict confidence and trust for the sole benefit of the Company, both during the term of this Agreement and at all times thereafter, and shall not use such confidential information for any purpose, whether or not for consideration, business or personal, other than as may be reasonably necessary for the performance of its duties according to this Agreement, without the Company's prior written consent.
The Affiliate shall not disclose any confidential information to any person or entity, other than to such of its employees or consultants as may be reasonably necessary for purposes of performing its duties hereunder and have executed agreements of confidentiality no less protective than this Agreement without the Company's prior written consent.

The Affiliate understands that the Company may change the payout amount at any time. The Affiliate is responsible for determining if the payout for a link they placed on their site has changed or been discontinued. The percentage paid as commissions is outlined in Schedule A (attached to this agreement). Payments are made monthly.
The Company reserves the right to deduct the costs for any products that are returned or refunded in the subsequent months, attributable to credit card fraud or bad debt write-off, or for any other reason if the previous commission was overpaid.
