HotspotRF Affiliate Terms of Service
This Affiliate Agreement (this “Agreement”) contains all of the terms and conditions between HotspotRF, LLC (“HotspotRF”) and the individual or organization (the “Affiliate”) participating in the HotspotRF Affiliate Program (the “Program”).
In this Agreement, “we”, “us”, and “company” means “HotspotRF” and “You” means the Affiliate participating in the Program. “Our Site” means the Website located at www.hotspotrf.com and “Your Site” means the Web site which you establish through the Program.
Upon execution of this Agreement, you will become an Independent Affiliate of HotspotRF established for purposes of marketing and distributing HotspotRF products and services (the “HotspotRF Products and Services”).
Setting Up an Affiliate Account and Earning Commission
To set up an Affiliate Account please fill in the online sign-up form on our Website. We will then provide you with a unique link to post on your website and social media platforms and to pass on to others. Each ‘click’ on this link will be registered on your Affiliate Account using a cookie which is set on the user’s computer, and for each sale made through that link you will earn commission at the rate set out on our agreement with you. We pay commission on the sale price of our products.
Relationship of Parties
You are hereby engaged by HotspotRF as an Independent contractor to act as an Affiliate for HotspotRF. As between you and HotspotRF, you are an independent contractor, and nothing in this Agreement will create any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative or employment relationship between the parties. You have no authority to make or accept any offers or representations on HotspotRF’s behalf.
Commissions and Payment of Commissions by HotspotRF
For the services performed by you during the term of this Agreement, HotspotRF shall pay the stipulated commission fee – 20% of the first month’s revenue when a customer signs up – on a monthly basis provided that the commission during the scheduled payout period is at least twenty-five dollars ($25.00). This rate schedule and agreement shall not be construed to have established or implied an employer-employee relationship but is agreed upon by both parties as a convenient method of paying the contractor for the services provided herein this Agreement.
You may be entitled to other bonus and benefits in the event such bonus and/or benefits have been sanctioned by HotspotRF. You shall be solely responsible for any and all taxes due and fees applicable to such compensation paid to you by HotspotRF.
You are not an employee or agent of the company for any purpose whatsoever, and therefore, shall not be entitled to paid vacation days, holidays, sick days or any other benefits provided to the Company’s employees
Your Obligations as a HotspotRF Affiliate
You understand and agree that violation of any of the following conditions may result in the forfeiture of any accrued commissions and immediate termination of your account:
- Unsolicited e-mail: You shall not use Unsolicited Commercial E-mail, referred to as “Spam”, or any form of unsolicited e-mail to promote any of the Services associated with HotspotRF. Spam means unsolicited e-mail sent to persons with whom you have no relationship and/or who have not requested your information
- Inappropriate Content: You may not link to HotspotRF from any website which contains content that is slanderous, libelous, threatening, pornographic, obscene and or infringing that could give rise to any civil or criminal liability.
- You will not make any statement, representation or warranty, whether vocally or in writing, about HotspotRF or our products and services other than those statements and representations contained in materials provided by us to you or set out on our Website.
- You will not make statements about HotspotRF products and services that are not true. Up-to-date information about our products and services can be found on our website, or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Termination and Closure of Inactive Accounts
Our Affiliates are not obligated to meet quotas or guarantee sales. However, if any Affiliate Account is inactive for a period of more than one (1) year, then we will close that account, meaning any clicks using the unique link associated with that account will no longer be registered to that account and no commission will be payable in respect of any sales coming through that link.
You can choose to end your membership of our Affiliate program at any time, for any reason, by notifying us that you wish to do so. We will then close your account, meaning any clicks using your unique link will no longer be registered to your account. Any commission which has not already been paid to you at the date that your account is closed will be paid through to you within two (2) months of your account being closed.
We can terminate your membership of our Affiliate program at any time, for any reason, by giving you thirty (30) days’ written notice. At the end of this thirty (30) day period we will close your account, meaning any clicks using your unique link will no longer be registered to your account. Any commission which has not already been paid to you at the date that your account is closed will be paid through to you on our next payment date.
We can also terminate your membership of the Affiliate program with immediate effect if you breach any of these Terms and do not remedy that breach (if capable of remedy) within fourteen (14) days of notice from us. If you do not correct the relevant breach within this time period we will close your account, meaning any clicks using your unique link will no longer be registered to your account. Once your account has been closed no further commission will be payable, including any commission which has accrued to your account but not yet been paid to you.
In addition to the termination provisions above, either you or we will be entitled to terminate your membership immediately by notifying the other in writing if the other is declared bankrupt, enters into insolvency or administration proceedings.
If your membership of our Affiliate Program is terminated for any reason you will be entitled to receive any unpaid commission registered on your Affiliate Account, unless payment is excluded for any reason set out in the above paragraphs. You will not be entitled to, or have any claim against HotspotRF for, compensation of any sort.
Unless these Terms state otherwise, on termination of your Affiliate Account neither you nor we will have any further obligation to the other under these Terms.

If you continue to use your unique Affiliate link after we have notified you of new or updated Terms then you will be deemed to have accepted those Terms.
This Agreement will be governed by the internal laws of the State of California, without regard to the choice of law provisions thereof. Any dispute between the parties arising under this Agreement will be resolved by binding arbitration by an arbitrator to be conducted in Pleasanton, California, in accordance with the then-current Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The arbitrator shall have the discretion to order that the cost of arbitration, including the arbitrator’s fees, or other costs, and reasonable attorneys’ fees, shall be borne by the losing party. The award of the arbitrator shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Entire Agreement: These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the HotspotRF Affiliate Program, and supersede all other communications between us in relation to your involvement in our Affiliate Program.
Neither you or we will incur any liability to the other for any loss or damage resulting from a delay or failure to perform any of these Terms (or any part of them) if the delay or failure is caused (whether in whole or in part) by events, occurrences, or causes beyond the control of that party, including without limitation acts of God, strikes, lockouts, riots, acts of war, earthquakes, fire and explosions.
Assignability: These Terms are personal to you as our Affiliate and you may not assign or otherwise transfer any of your rights or obligations to anyone else.
Waiver: If we agree to waive any of, or any part of, these Terms then that waiver must be in writing to be effective. Any waiver by us of any of, or any part of, these Terms will not be considered a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision of these Terms and failure, neglect or delay by you or us to enforce these Terms (or any of them) or any rights or remedies at any time will not be deemed to be a waiver of the rights under these Terms.
