3. Suitability for the Pakaloa Affiliate Program
3.1) Pakaloa reserves the right to terminate this Agreement and the Affiliate’s status at any time for any reason whatsoever at its sole discretion.
3.2) In particular, if Pakaloa deems that the Affiliate’s website is inappropriate for the Programme, then this Agreement shall be terminated. The Affiliate’s website may be considered as inappropriate if in the view of Pakaloa it contains, promotes or contains links to sites that are:

3.7) Upon Clicking on the ‘apply button,’ you are automatically accepted on the Programme. Pakaloa reserves the right to withdraw Affiliate status at any time after you have been received onto the Programme for any reason that Pakaloa deems relevant. Acceptance into the Programme does not mean that Pakaloa has specifically approved the Affiliate or its website.
4. Legitimate methods of advertising
4.1) To receive a commission for referring customers to Pakaloa, the Affiliate must engage in proper advertising. Affiliates found to be participating in improper advertising shall have their agreement terminated and their affiliate status revoked. Pakaloa shall be the sole and absolute judge of what constitutes proper advertising.
4.2) A non-exhaustive list of examples of improper advertising shall include but not be limited to:
4.2.1) the forwarding of any URLs direct to Pakaloa.com (this includes misspells of the above trademark domain); and
4.2.2) forcing cookies through iframes;
4.2.3) advertising through third party networks; with the exception arising from Clause 4.3 below;
4.2.4) brand bidding (including misspells) for PPC advertising,
4.2.5) including your Pakaloa affiliate link within Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE) or SPAM,
4.2.6) including any of Pakaloa URLs in search adverts.
4.3) Affiliates are permitted to promote Pakaloa through various social media communities, as a limited exception to Clause 4.2.3 above. However, Affiliates are not allowed to create groups or specific web pages in social communities whereby they purport or hold themselves out to be representatives of Pakaloa.
4.4) Pakaloa reserves the right to conclude that you have engaged in an improper method of advertising according to our standards, at our sole discretion. We may come to such a conclusion even if it is based upon our opinion or mere suspicion or belief and is without any duty on Pakaloa to prove that our opinion or doubt is well-founded; and even if our idea is shown not to be well-founded or if another hosting/domain name companies have not deemed it to be an improper method of advertising.
4.5) Any Affiliate found to be adopting improper practices of advertising for the Programme shall be thought to have been in breach of this Agreement and shall have their Affiliate status revoked. Such an Affiliate will, therefore, immediately cease in being an Affiliate of Pakaloa.
4.6) Any sales that have been generated through improper advertising will not qualify for commission or credit from Pakaloa.
4.7) Any Affiliate found to be utilizing these or any other inappropriate methods of advertising may be required to pay back any such commission that has been paid by Pakaloa to them. If Pakaloa elects not to enforce this right, it shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any other rights that it may have under this Agreement.
5. The Procedure
5.1) Subject to the terms of this Section, we will provide to you all Links, and any related banners, graphics, or text advertisements necessary to promote and offer the Pakaloa Services to your site’s visitors and its members. The Pakaloa link may contain any picture, text, logo, graphic, that maybe be attributed with Pakaloa.
5.2) Pakaloa reserves the right to change the content and or display of the Link from time to time in our sole discretion. The link will connect your site with the area on our website (the landing page) where your referral may apply for Pakaloa products directly with us. The presence of the Pakaloa link on your site will serve to identify you as a member of our Affiliate Programme.
6. The Payment of Commission
6.1) Once a customer has arrived at our website, having followed the Link, their actions on our website will be tracked for 90 days using a cookie. You will earn a commission on their first order that is placed during the 90 days. Pakaloa will not be responsible for commissions missed due to the cookie being deleted or blocked or in any other way failing to track the customer from the Link.
6.2) Affiliates will only earn commission fees concerning activity on our site occurring directly through the link that will appear on their website.
6.3) Pakaloa is under no obligation whatsoever to pay any commission to any Affiliate who does not strictly follow this Agreement as published from time to time.
6.4) Pakaloa reserves the right to take legal action against any Affiliate that commits fraud, or conspiracy to defraud and to recover any commissions paid to an Affiliate which was earned as a result of such fraud. For this agreement, fraud shall include but not be limited to wittingly violating the terms of this Agreement.
6.5) Pakaloa will only make a payment to the Affiliate when the level of commission due at the end of a given calendar month is above the commission balance threshold.
6.6) Pakaloa reserves the sole right to change the commission balance threshold at any time it sees fit without the prior consent of its affiliates. In the event of a commission balance threshold change, Pakaloa shall notify all its affiliates of the change beforehand. If any modification to the commission balance threshold or the Agreement as a whole is not acceptable to an Affiliate, the Affiliate shall be entitled to terminate this Agreement. If an Affiliate terminates this Agreement for any reason whatsoever, then it shall not be entitled to any commission payments earned after it has terminated this Agreement.
6.7) The Affiliate’s continuing participation in the Programme constitutes its acceptance of any change to the commission balance threshold or any other part of this Agreement.
6.8) Pakaloa will only pay out commissions on sales that are 60 days old.
6.9) Commissions shall be sent to Affiliates by transfer or PayPal payment. Affiliates shall allow up to 28 days to receive their payment. It is the sole responsibility of an Affiliate to make sure that their contact details are up to date and accurate on the Pakaloa system to facilitate the payment reaching them.
6.10) Affiliates will only be paid Commissions for the first order made by their referral customer only. Commissions will be not paid on orders made by existing Pakaloa customers. Pakaloa will not pay commission for products that an Affiliate purchases for itself through the Link. The Pakaloa system will not recognize this as an Affiliate sale. Web agencies or resellers purchasing domains or products through their accounts for other people are encouraged to contact Pakaloa directly for information on how they can become eligible for commission.
6.11) The rates of commission payable to the Affiliate from time to time shall be published on the Site, and this shall be included in this Agreement as Schedule 1 to it. Schedule 1 may be amended or varied by Pakaloa at any time without reference to the Affiliate. Any revised rates of commission payment shall take effect from the day that the modified Schedule 1 is published on the site.
