Terms of Partner Program

Effective: January 1, 2017 Last Updated: January 1, 2018



Below, you will find the terms and conditions under which we operate Woodpecker.co Partner Program. We’ve tried our best to keep it simple, nonetheless we sometimes have to use terms and expressions normally found in legal documents. In case of any questions, contact our Partner Program Manager directly at [email protected].

1. Introduction

We’re happy that you’re interested in Woodpecker.co Partner Program. These Terms of Partner Program (henceforth referred to as the “Terms”, “Agreement”, “Document”) regulate your access to and participation in Woodpecker.co Partner Program (“Program”) accessible via website www.woodpecker.co/partner-program/ (“Website”) or direct email, and hosted by Woodpecker.co (“Woodpecker”, “we”, “us”, “our”, “ours”). This Document does not alter in any way the Terms of Service or any other possible agreement you may have with Woodpecker.

Partner (“Partner”, “You”, “Your”) means any entity or affiliated person that has registered with the Program via the Website or direct email to Woodpecker, which will also be contracted by the general Woodpecker.co Terms of Service and this Document.

Referral fee (“Referral fee”, “Commission”) means any outstanding payment earned by the Partner during their participation in the Program.

Referral link (“Referral link”, “handle”, “link”) means a unique link to Woodpecker’s Website and blog granted to every Partner participating in the Program. The link is used to track new customer’s registrations and link them with the Partners sharing the link in accordance with the guidelines of these Terms.

Income (“Income”) means any payments received by Woodpecker from the customers.

Seat (“Seat”, “subscription”) means one access to Woodpecker platform given to a paying customer. One customer can occupy multiple Seats if they extend the usage to their coworkers and/or connect additional email accounts for themselves.

Customer (“Customer”, “client”) means a paying Woodpecker.co customer with active subscription.

Please note that this Agreement affects your legal rights and obligations. If you do not agree to be bound by all of its contents, do not participate in the Program.

2. General Statements

To participate in the Program, the Partner:

a) must be at least 18 years old,
b) must have an active and verified PayPal account,
c) if you are a Polish citizen, you must represent a registered company and not participate in the Program as a natural person (pl. “Osoba fizyczna”).

We reserve the right at our sole discretion at any time to refuse anyone’s participation in the Program and change any of the Terms of Partner Program. You agree that every change We may make to this Agreement will affect you as well if you choose to continue to participate in the Program after the changes are made. Of course, We will inform You about the changes via email.

Providing false information in the registration form will result in immediate termination from the Program and will forfeit all due Referral fees.

3. Partner Program Rules

You, as our Partner participating in the Partner Program, are entitled to Referral fee based on the Income that customers referred by you generate for Woodpecker.

To generate Referral Fee the customer brought by Partner must:

a) use a browser that has its cookies settings enabled.
b) follow a Referral link.
c) purchase any amount of subscriptions (“Seats”) for Woodpecker service and successfully pay Woodpecker a subscription fee.
d) remain Woodpecker’s customer for at least 30 days.

You will receive a Referral fee in the amount of 20% Gross of Net Income of every subscription of Woodpecker that is connected to You through the referral link that You used in the process for your first 3 years in the Program. For the subsequent 4 years, the commission rate will decrease from 20% to 10 %.

A referral fee is reported as due to you within 30 days from the beginning of the subscription term of the customer to avoid any technical issues and refunds that might happen.

Referral fee may be a subject for adjustments for the credit card chargebacks and refunds. Canceled, fraudulent or voided transactions do not qualify as a basis for Referral fee.

We can transfer You Referral fees gathered during Your participation in the Program to your PayPal account when a total of granted commissions exceeds 100 USD.

We trace the Referral fees through the use of cookies. If it is not possible to track traffic from your site to the Woodpecker’s Website, because the visitor is using cookie-blocking software, or the link was altered in ways that do not follow the official guidelines, Woodpecker will only pay commissions on sales that can be traced by cookies back to You.

Only the Partner whose link is automatically reported by Woodpecker as connected to the customer will get Referral fee for the sale. Woodpecker does not connect customers to Partners with manual actions.

We reserve our exclusive right and responsibility for processing all subscriptions and payments made by customers. Partner acknowledges that all agreements relating to sales to Customers will be between Woodpecker and the Customer and that the prices for the Woodpecker service will be set solely by Woodpecker at its discretion.

If the total amount of Referral fees exceeds 100 USD, You may request a transfer of the funds from Your partner account for up to the value of the funds earned. The funds will be transferred to Your PayPal account within the first week of next month after your request (eg. If You request the transfer on April 29th, we will realize it in the first days of May).

You will not be entitled to receive any Referral fees for a subscription of the customer who:

a) has been introduced in breach of any term of these Terms,
b) makes a payment which is subject to a chargeback or which is reversed for any reason,
c) has an insufficient amount of credit to continue their subscription,
d) is located in a territory from which the Woodpecker may not accept customers,
e) is suspected by Woodpecker of acting in breach of the Terms of Service and conditions governing his/her account or any fraudulent or dishonest activity,

All payments made by Woodpecker under this Agreement are deemed inclusive of any VAT or other tax payable and will be paid in USD exclusively via PayPal. Any additional fees connected with withdrawing funds, such as PayPal transaction fee, will be covered by the Partner.
