The following agreement, terms, clauses and conditions govern your ("The Client") participation in this SSA Inc. Online Store Agreement. By working with Spirit School Apparel Inc. a Washington corporation (SSA Inc.) and executing this SSA Inc. Agreement (the "Agreement"), SSA Inc. and the Client agree to abide by all of the terms, clauses and conditions set forth herein.
SSA Inc. shall develop and manage a custom online e-commerce website for The Client. SSA Inc. does not charge a fee for the development or management of such e-commerce website. SSA Inc. will provide The Client with easy to follow instructions and links provided by SSA Inc. referred to as ("Materials"). In the event that any such SSA Inc. Materials are provided to the Client, all of the provided materials, links, data or other creative, graphic, text or html content shall remain at all times the sole property of SSA Inc. In the event of a breach of any provision of this Agreement by The Client, The Client agrees to immediately discontinue use of any SSA Inc. Materials upon notice of such breach to The Client.
(1) The term of this Agreement shall be for Twelve months from the date of its first execution, however, this Agreement shall automatically renew at the end of the initial twelve month period unless: (a) a party notifies the other in writing, email or fax, that it does not wish to renew this Agreement; at that point a party may remove any and all links, advertisements, or materials from websites, or (b) this Agreement is earlier terminated pursuant to the provisions hereof.
(2) SSA Inc. may discontinue this Agreement, and The Client's participation at any time and for any reason, or for no reason upon written, email, or fax notice. In the event of a cancelation of this Agreement, any revenue earned through the date of such termination of this Agreement will remain payable to The Client (but only if the amounts paid by any consumer are not refunded to such consumer and if amounts owing to us from consumers are actually received).
Through our proprietary tracking system ("Tracking System"; the Tracking System is sometimes referred to herein, by use of the general term "Tracking"), we will determine which sales generated through The Client's websites originated from Links on The Client's sites or referral client's sites (such generated sales are referred to herein as "Revenue Share Events or Transactions") For each Revenue Share Event, we will pay The Client the amounts due for the given Transaction. Revenue share may be variable and is determined by the type of e-commerce store and product pricing. The Tracking System calculates revenue share due based on sales generated from Links on The Client's sites or referral client's sites, and is the final and binding source of all determinations of payments due to The Client.
To help ensure proper crediting of Revenue Share Events to The Client, The Client will have full access to the Tracking System and have full access to The Client's sales data and referral client's revenue share data. SSA Inc. reserves the right to delay payment to The Client until after the collection from consumers of amounts owing in respect of such Revenue Share Events.
(1) Within 30 days, (Thirty Calendar Days) after the end of each Quarter (Quarterly Payouts) SSA Inc. will mail checks to the address provided by The Client during registration, for the payment of Revenue Share Events that The Client has earned during each quarter together with any other amounts owed to The Client in respect of sales or referral sales hereunder during such quarter, less any taxes required to be withheld under applicable law, provided: (i) The Client has not breached any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. (ii) The Client has provided us with The Client's valid taxpayer identification number. Revenue Share Events are based from actual sales from The Client's sites or referral client's sites. Shipping, handling and any applicable sales taxes will never be considered as a Revenue Share Event.
(2) If the payment owed to The Client is less than one hundred dollars ($100) payment will be withheld until the next quarterly payment cycle or until the total payment to The Client is greater than $100. SSA Inc. is a Washington State based corporation and will charge the applicable sales tax for merchandise sold by SSA Inc. and shipped to addresses in Washington State.
(3) SSA Inc. shall not be liable to The Client as a result of failure by The Client's website or webmaster to use Links properly, including to the extent that such failure results in inaccurate reports. The Client acknowledges that the accuracy, completeness and timeliness of the data included in The Client's Revenue Share Report are a function of the accuracy and completeness of the underlying data that SSA Inc. obtains from the tracking system. SSA Inc. shall not be responsible or liable for any errors in or omissions from such underlying data or sales tracking reports.
When The Client refers potential clients to SSA Inc. and such potential clients become clients of SSA Inc., The Client will be eligible for a share of the referral client's revenue share events. Referral clients must state during registration they were referred to SSA Inc. by The Client in order for The Client to be eligible for revenue share from sales generated from referral client's websites. Referral revenue share shall be 5% of every sale generated from the referral client's websites excluding shipping, handling and any applicable taxes.
