In these terms and conditions, Sifi and you are each referred to as a “party” and collectively as the “parties”.
By participating in the Affiliate Program, you will have the opportunity to earn money from Commissions (as defined below) when people you refer to Sifi (each new and unique customer referred by you to Sifi, a “Referred Customer”) purchase any of Sifi Eligible Products (as defined below). This Agreement sets forth your rights and obligations as a member of the Affiliate Program.
You acknowledge and agree that your rights under this Agreement, including the right to identify as a member of the Affiliate Program, begin only when you agree to be bound by the provisions of this Agreement by submitting and clicking “I Agree” on the Application (the “Effective Date”), and only for as long as you are a member in good standing with the Affiliate Program.
- REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES.
1.1 By submitting the Application to Sifi, you agree to be bound by the provisions of this Agreement and you represent and warrant to Sifi that:
(a) you have reviewed and fully understand the provisions of this Agreement;
(b) your acceptance of this Agreement and participation in the Affiliate Program will not violate (i) any provision of law, rule, or regulation to which you are subject; (ii) any order, judgment, or decree applicable to you or binding upon your assets or properties; (iii) any provision of your by-laws or certificate of incorporation; or (iv) any agreement or other instrument applicable to you or binding upon your assets or properties;
(c) the referral services provided by you hereunder, including with respect to the marketing and advertising materials created or used by you, will not infringe the intellectual property rights or plagiarize any work (or part thereof) of any third party, and you will comply with and ensure that any and all advertising and promotional materials prepared by you in the course of providing the referral services hereunder are compliant with the requirements of all applicable intellectual property, advertising and marketing laws, regulations and policies; and
(d) you are at least 18 years of age.
- INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR.
(a) As a result of the relationship created by this Agreement, you are an independent contractor of Sifi. Nothing contained in this Agreement will be interpreted to create any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative, or employment relationship between the parties. You have no the authority to bind Sifi in any respect, it being intended that you will remain responsible for your own actions. You are retained only for the purposes and to the extent set out in this Agreement.
(b) Sifi will not make any statutory source deductions from the Commission payable to you under this Agreement and You are solely responsible for withholding and remitting any federal, state, provincial or local payroll-related or other income associated taxes, payments, or assessments related to the performance of the referral services hereunder, including in respect of workers’ compensation insurance premiums and you acknowledge that Sifi is not required to make, and will not make, any remittances and payments required of employers by statute on your behalf.
- ELIGIBLE PRODUCTS; COMMISSION.
3.1 “Eligible Products” means any products and services offered by Sifi; provided that Sifi may at any time and from time to time at its sole discretion, add, remove, amend, or replace any of the Eligible Products, and you agree that such addition, removal, amendment, or replacement will not frustrate this Agreement.
3.2 Sifi will pay you a commission fee equal to 40% (the “Commission”) of the gross sales proceeds collected by Sifi from the sale of any Eligible Products to a Referred Customer in accordance with Section 1 hereof, net of any customer refunds, chargebacks and other uncollectable amounts. For greater certainty, if Sifi does not actually receive full payment from a Referred Customer for the sale of an Eligible Product, you will not be paid a Commission on the transaction.
- REFERRAL TRACKING.
4.1 You will receive a unique Affiliate URL (the “Affiliate Link”), which you will use to advertise and promote the Eligible Products. When a Referred Customer clicks through your Affiliate Link, a cookie or similar tracking technology (a “Cookie”) will be set in the Referred Customer’s browser for a period of 60 days after the Referred Customer clicks through your Affiliate Link (the “Active Period”). When the Referred Customer creates a Sifi account by using your Affiliate Link within the Active Period, the Cookie on the Referred Customer’s browser that corresponds to your Affiliate Link will be tracked. If the Referred Customer completes the purchase of an Eligible Product during the Active Period, then a sale (each, a “Sold Account”) will be registered on your Sifi Affiliate profile and a Commission in connection with such Sold Account will be payable by Sifi to you in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement. For greater certainty, if a Referred Customer purchases an Eligible Product after the expiration of the Active Period, then a Sold Account will not be registered on your Sifi Affiliate profile.
4.2 In the event that:
(a) a Referred Customer has active Cookies for multiple Affiliates, the most recently acquired Cookie will determine which Affiliate is credited with such sale and which Affiliate will have a Sold Account registered on their SIFI Affiliate profile; and
(b) a Referred Customer is using cookie blocking software, pixel blocking software or other similar software which prevents SIFI from tracking your Affiliate Link, or if the Affiliate Link is altered in anyway, then a Sold Account will not be registered on your SIFI Affiliate profile with respect to any Eligible Products purchased by such Referred Customer.
- COMMISSION PAYMENTS; MINIMUM COMMISSION.
5.1 Commissions payable in accordance with Section 2 will be paid by SIFI to you within 45 days after the end of the calendar month that payment was received by SIFI for the Sold Account from which such Commission was earned.
5.2 The total amount of Commissions payable to you by SIFI must equal or exceed USD $100.00 before you are eligible to receive payment from SIFI for any Commission earned. If your Commission is less than USD $100.00, your Commission will be withheld by SIFI until your Commission exceeds USD $100.00.
5.3 All Commissions are paid in US Dollars. All Commissions are payable by way of electronic payment, including PayPal, Automated Clearing House (ACH) payment or such other form of payment as may be determined by SIFI, and any fees resulting from the payment transaction will be your responsibility and SIFI will not be responsible or liable for any such costs and expenses.
5.4 You will provide SIFI with current payment information, from time to time, and you agree to forfeit all Commissions owed to you if SIFI is unable to make payment to you for a period of more than 60 days as a result of your payment information being outdated or otherwise incorrect.
- REFUNDS AND CHARGEBACKS.
6.1 If payment for a Sold Account later results in a refund or charge-back, as determined by SIFI in its sole discretion, and if a Commission was paid to you for such Sold Account, then SIFI will have the right to deduct the Commission paid to you with respect to such refunded Sold Account from future Commissions payable by SIFI to you. Alternatively, you agree to make payment to SIFI for the full amount of the Commission paid to you with respect to such refunded Sold Account within five (5) days of receiving notice of same from SIFI.

Any payments made by you to SIFI under this Section 2 will be made in accordance with the payment instructions provided to you by SIFI.
7.1 SIFI will not be required to make payment to you for any Commissions until you provide SIFI with, as applicable, a valid Goods & Services Tax Registration number (GST), a completed Form W-8 or Form W‑9, or such other form or information in relation to same may be required by SIFI. You will be deemed to have irrevocably waived all rights to Commissions that were earned more than 120 days before submitting a valid GST number or a completed Form W-8 or Form W-9 to SIFI.
