SECTION 1 – PARTIES All references to “Quizpro” herein means and refers to Quizpro. All references to “You” and “Your” mean and refer to the person or entity who has executed this Agreement. Quizpro and You are each referred to herein as a “Party,” and collectively as the “Parties.”
SECTION 2 – APPLICATION You agree to provide all information requested by Quizpro in connection with Your Affiliate application, and You affirm that all information that You provide is truthful and accurate. You understand and agree that Quizpro retains sole and exclusive discretion to determine whether You qualify for participation in the Quizpro Affiliate program. Not everyone who applies for the Quizpro Affiliate program will qualify to participate.
SECTION 3 – CONSENT TO BE CONTACTED You expressly consent to be contacted at the email address and the phone number You provide in Your application about Your application and the Affiliate program, including through automated dialing systems, texts and artificial or pre-recorded messages. This consent is a material condition of this Agreement and may not be revoked except in writing by both Parties.
SECTION 4 – COMPENSATION If Your application to become an Affiliate is approved by Quizpro, You will receive a unique Affiliate ID. The Affiliate ID will be incorporated within each URL which You will use to advertise Quizpro. You will have the opportunity to receive a commission for each sale (“Sale”) that is registered using Your Affiliate ID.
In the event that a prospect (“Prospect”) has multiple Affiliate cookies (“Cookies”), the most recently-acquired Cookie will determine which Affiliate is credited with a Sale. There are some products and services sold that do not have trial periods.
Provided that the Sold Account (as defined below) remains in good status within thirty (30) days from the Sale, You will be paid a commission for each Sold Account that generates a payment to Quizpro in a month (“Commission”). Except as otherwise provided herein, Commission payments will be paid on the 1st of each month following Quizpro’s receipt of payment for a Sold Account, subject to the other terms of this Agreement. In the event the 1st of the month falls on a holiday, Commission payments will be paid on the business day preceding the holiday. All Commission payments are based on the amount of fees received by Quizpro, less sales taxes if applicable.
The amount of Commissions are as follows:
Quizpro Standard, Pro and Premium accounts: 25% commission
2nd Tier Commissions (from your affiliates sales): 5% Commission
All Commissions are paid in U.S. Dollars (USD) or otherwise in currencies offered by the payment provider. Your combined Commissions must equal or exceed One Hundred and 00/100 Dollars ($100.00) (USD) before You receive a payment from Quizpro.
Once total commissions of $100 (USD) or more is earned, You must provide Quizpro a completed W-8 or W-9 tax form, as instructed by Quizpro, as well as any supporting documentation requested by Quizpro or its third-party payment provider. If You are not a resident of the United States, Quizpro may withhold tax (including without limitation VAT) where required by applicable law. You are solely responsible for complying with all tax laws in Your respective jurisdiction(s) including, but not limited to, the payment of all required taxes, and filing of all returns and other required documents with, the applicable governing body(ies).
Affiliates will not be paid any Commissions made on Affiliate’s own user account(s). Affiliates are not permitted to open a Quizpro account under the name of another person or entity, under a fictitious name, or under any name merely for the purpose of obtaining Commissions. Affiliates are not permitted to offer cash rebates or other monetary incentives to obtain Sales.
Commissions are paid only for transactions that actually occur between Quizpro and in which payment is received by Quizpro. If payment for a Sold Account later results in a refund or chargeback, and if a Commission was paid to You for that Sold Account, then the Commission will be deducted from Your future Commissions.
If Quizpro determines, in its sole and exclusive discretion, that any Sale was procured fraudulently or as a result of any violation of this Agreement or applicable law, no Commission will be paid for such Sale and, for past sales, such payment amounts shall be deducted from Your future Commissions, and Quizpro may terminate this Agreement immediately without Quizpro having any liability to You.
SECTION 5 – TERM AND TERMINATION The term of this Agreement will begin the earlier of (i) when You click “I agree to the Terms and Conditions” and submit; or (ii) Your participation in the Affiliate program is approved. Your participation in the Quizpro Affiliate program will continue month-to-month until terminated. Either Party may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause, by giving the other Party thirty (30) days’ written notice of termination. If, in our sole discretion, You fail, or we suspect that You have failed, to comply with any term or provision of the Agreement or the Terms of Service, or violated any law, whether in connection with Your use of Quizpro or otherwise, we may terminate the Agreement or suspend Your access to the Affiliate website (“Website”) at any time without notice to You. In addition, if, based on our data, you have a dispute rate greater than 10%, we may terminate this Agreement or suspend your access to the Website at any time without notice to You. In such an instance, and in our sole discretion, we may also for the aforementioned reasons, terminate our relationship and suspend any accounts owned/controlled by You. For the avoidance of doubt, and without limitation for purposes of the foregoing, any violation of the required disclosure will be deemed a material breach of this Agreement. See Appendix A, Section 2, Disclosure. In the event this Agreement is canceled due to Your breach, You immediately forfeit all Commissions and any other payments owed to You or that may in the future be owed to You without any further liability by Quizpro to You. This Agreement will terminate automatically if You earn no (zero) Commissions over a 12 month period.
If this Agreement is terminated or canceled, then all provisions that, by their nature, should survive, will survive, including, but not necessarily limited to, all limitations of liability, disclaimers of warranties, indemnity obligations, mandatory arbitration and class action waiver provisions, and exceptions to arbitration. All representations and warranties undertaken by You shall also survive termination or cancellation of this Agreement and/or Your Quizpro account.
SECTION 6 – ADDITIONAL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES In addition to Your other representations and warranties herein, You further represent and warrant that there are no prior or pending government investigations or inquiries of, or prosecutions against You by the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”), any other federal or state governmental agency, or any industry regulatory authority, anywhere in the world, nor any prior or pending private lawsuits against You which relate to alleged intentional torts or alleged violation of any consumer protection or advertising laws. If You become the subject of such an investigation, inquiry, prosecution, or lawsuit any time after this Agreement is executed, You are required to notify Quizpro of the same within 24 hours. Quizpro, in its sole and exclusive discretion, may immediately terminate Your participation in Quizpro’s Affiliate program, as well as immediately terminate this Agreement, based on any investigation, proceeding, or lawsuit identified pursuant to this paragraph.
SECTION 7 – ENTIRE AGREEMENT This Agreement, Appendix A below, along with Quizpro’s standard Terms of Service, represents the entire agreement between the Parties and supersedes any other written or oral agreement between the Parties as pertaining to Your Affiliate application and, if approved, Your rights and responsibilities as an Affiliate.
Additional Terms of the Affiliate Agreement and Advertising Rules
These Advertising Rules apply to all activities of Affiliate:
General Compliance. Affiliate shall publish or otherwise distribute advertisements in strict compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including without limitation, laws prohibiting deceptive and misleading advertising and marketing, email marketing laws (including the federal CAN-SPAM Act (15 U.S.C. § 7701)), laws governing testimonials (including the FTC’s Revised Endorsements and Testimonials Guides (16 CFR Part 255 of the Code of Federal Regulations)), and all guidelines issued by the FTC. Affiliate is solely responsible for ensuring Affiliate’s compliance with all laws. Affiliates are strictly prohibited from making claims concerning the products and services offered by Quizpro that are inconsistent with, or beyond the scope of marketing materials produced and made available by Quizpro on Quizpro’s website, Quizpro.net.

Affiliate may, however, offer Prospects information and materials of tangible value including, but not limited to, quiz templates, information about e-commerce, quiz design, and online marketing, for reduced or no charge, but only so long as Affiliate accurately describes and delivers such information and materials to the Prospect. Quizpro retains the sole and exclusive discretion to determine whether Affiliate’s advertising and conduct is in compliance with all laws.
Disclosure. On any website that Affiliate advertises any Quizpro service or product, Affiliate must plainly display (i.e., not in a link, or in small font) disclaimer language, such as:
Disclosure: I am an independent Quizpro Affiliate, not an employee. I receive referral payments from Quizpro. The opinions expressed here are my own and are not official statements of Quizpro.
Non-Disparagement. Affiliate is not permitted to comment negatively about or disparage the products or services of Quizpro or any other person or entity, including without limitation the products or services of a Quizpro competitor. Affiliate is not permitted to engage in any unlawful or deceptive actions with respect to search engine optimization, including, but not limited to, using any technique that generates paid search results based on any trademarks of Quizpro, any brand name of Quizpro, or based on the trademarks or brand name of any competitor of Quizpro, or any other third party. Affiliate shall not direct link to a Quizpro sales page from any paid advertising.

If Affiliate’s recruiting efforts include claims related to income Affiliate has made from using Quizpro or as an Affiliate, the following guidelines must be adhered to:
(a) Affiliate’s statements must be completely true and accurate and supported by evidence of Affiliate’s experience; and
(b) Affiliate’s statements must be accompanied by the following disclaimer in clear and conspicuous font and placement: “These were my results. Your results will vary based on a variety of factors including Your education, effort, and market factors. There is no guarantee You will make any money.”
Affiliate is also expressly prohibited from making any express or implied claims that Quizpro is or provides a business opportunity, franchise opportunity, a “business-in-a-box,” or an assisted marketing plan.

No logo, tagline, trademark, trade name, or trade dress (collectively, the “Quizpro Trademarks”) owned by Quizpro may be used, copied, or reproduced by any Affiliate except as set forth below. No Quizpro intellectual property (or any mark confusingly similar to any Quizpro intellectual property) is to be registered as a trademark in any country or registered as a domain name by Affiliate in any way in any country.
Subject to the restrictions below, approved Affiliates are granted a limited, revocable, non-transferrable, and non-assignable license to use the “Quizpro®” trademark, to advertise Quizpro online. Any time Affiliate uses the word “Quizpro” it must be immediately followed by “®”. Affiliate may not use “Quizpro” or other Quizpro’ trademarks (including those at this link, which may be updated from time to time) as part of any URL, domain or website name.
Quizpro retains exclusive ownership of all Quizpro’s Trademarks and other intellectual property and all of its rights therein. Affiliate shall not promote or provide services to any other business or person that is infringing any of Quizpro’ intellectual property.

It is the express understanding and intention of the Parties that no relationship of master and servant nor principal and agent shall exist between Quizpro and You by virtue of this Agreement.

You are solely and exclusively responsible and liable for all of Your acts or omissions.
NO WARRANTY; NO LEADS. Quizpro does not promise, guarantee or warrant Your business success, income, or sales. You understand and acknowledge that Quizpro will not at any time provide sales leads or referrals to You. You understand and agree further that this is not a business opportunity, a franchise opportunity, a “business-in-a-box,” or an assisted marketing plan. You are responsible for procuring and paying for any and all materials and resources necessary to operate as an Affiliate as You determine in Your sole discretion.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION, CLASS ACTION WAIVER, & GOVERNING LAW.
Any controversy or claim arising out of or related to this Agreement or Your relationship with us that cannot be resolved through negotiation within 120 days shall be resolved by binding, confidential arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), and judgment on the award rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
PLEASE READ THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION CAREFULLY TO UNDERSTAND YOUR AND YOUR BUSINESS’ RIGHTS. EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW, YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS AGREE THAT ANY CLAIM THAT YOU OR YOUR BUSINESS MAY HAVE IN THE FUTURE MUST BE RESOLVED THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING CONFIDENTIAL ARBITRATION. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY. THE RIGHTS THAT YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT, SUCH AS DISCOVERY OR THE RIGHT TO APPEAL, MAY BE MORE LIMITED OR MAY NOT EXIST. YOU AGREE THAT YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS MAY ONLY BRING A CLAIM IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF (LEAD OR OTHERWISE) OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE PROCEEDINGS OR CLAIMS OR OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING.
THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. HOWEVER, AN ARBITRATOR CAN AWARD ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF AS A COURT (INCLUDING INJUNCTIVE AND DECLARATORY RELIEF OR STATUTORY DAMAGES), AND MUST FOLLOW THESE TERMS AS A COURT WOULD.
Indemnity. You agree to protect, defend, indemnify and hold harmless Quizpro, its officers, directors, employees, owner(s), and parent company(ies) and assigns from and against all claims, demands, and causes of action of every kind and character without limitation arising out of Your conduct, acts, or omissions related to Your application and/or performance of this Agreement including, but not limited to, any breach of this Agreement. Your indemnity obligation includes, but is not limited to, any third party claim against Quizpro for liability or payments for damages caused by, or other liability relating to, You. This provision expressly survives the termination of this Agreement.
Severability. In the event any provision of this Agreement is inconsistent with or contrary to any applicable law, rule, or regulation, the provision shall be deemed to be modified to the extent required to comply with the law, rule, or regulation, and this Agreement and the Terms of Service, as so modified, shall continue in full force and effect.
Modification/Amendments. This Agreement and Quizpro’s standard Terms of Service may be modified by Quizpro at any time, with or without prior notice to You. Amendments or modifications to this Agreement or the Terms of Service will be binding on You when they are sent to You via email, or are posted in the affiliate center. No amendment to this Agreement or the Terms of Service shall be valid unless prepared or signed by Quizpro. Your continued acceptance of Commission payments constitutes Your acceptance to any modifications or amendments to this Agreement and/or the Terms of Service.
