Once You have signed up for the Affiliate Program, You will be assigned a unique affiliate code ("Affiliate Code").

To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and Referral Fee accrual, we will provide You with special link formats to be used in all links between Your site and Sharetribe ("Special Links").

Customers who land on the Sharetribe web site via Special Links and who choose to purchase Sharetribe products and services within the applicable validity period ("Eligible Customers") shall entitle You to Referral Fees as set out herein.
Eligible Customers are identified by cookies placed on the Customer's computer system. Such Cookies are the only way Sharetribe identifies Eligible Customers, and Sharetribe shall not be liable in any way, of any non-payment of Referral Fees caused by circumstances outside the control of Sharetribe, such as the Eligible Customer's deletion of the relevant cookies or the purchase of Sharetribe products and services from another computer system. The cookies are valid for ninety (90) days. Any purchase of Sharetribe products and services after the expiry of such cookies shall not result in the payment of any Referral Fees.

iii. The Referral Fee is ten percent (10%) of the payments made by the Eligible Customer to Sharetribe during the first twelve (12) months of the Eligible Customer's agreement with Sharetribe.
