Material Connections and Compensation Disclosure Policy
You should always conduct your own investigation (perform due diligence) before buying products or services from anyone via the internet. This includes products and services sold on this website and all other websites.
Unless otherwise expressly stated, you should assume that all references to products and services on http://mikescherermarketing.com are made because material connections exist between the website’s owner(s) (“Owner”) and the providers of the mentioned products and services (“Provider”).
Good Faith Recommendations
The Owner recommends products and services on http://mikescherermarketing.com based in part on a good faith belief that the purchase of such products or services will help purchasers in general. The Owner has this good faith belief because (a) the Owner has tried the product or service mentioned prior to recommending it or (b) the Owner has researched the reputation of the Provider and has made the decision to recommend the Provider’s products or services based on the Provider’s history of providing these or other products or services. The representations made by the Owner about products and services reflect the Owner’s honest opinion based upon the facts known to the Owner at the time a product or service is mentioned on http://mikescherermarketing.com.
Potential Bias and Due Diligence
The Owner’s opinion about a product or service may be partially formed (consciously or subconsciously) in part based on the fact that the Owner has been compensated or will be compensated because of the Owner’s business relationships with the Providers.
In some instances, the Owner and a Provider will have a business or personal relationship that does not involve the Owner receiving compensation related to products and services mentioned on http://mikescherermarketing.com. However, the nature of the relationship is sufficient to establish a material connection between the Owner and the Provider.
Because there may be a material connection between the Owner and Providers of products or services mentioned on http://mikescherermarketing.com, you should always assume that the Owner may be biased because of the Owner’s relationship with a Provider and/or because the Owner has received or will receive something of value from a Provider.
Perform your own due diligence before purchasing a product or service mentioned on http://mikescherermarketing.com (or any other website).
The type of compensation received by the Owner may vary. In some instances, the Owner may receive complimentary products, services, or money from a Provider prior to mentioning the Provider’s products or services on http://mikescherermarketing.com.
In other instances, the Owner may receive a monetary commission or non-monetary compensation when you take action based on the content of http://mikescherermarketing.com. This includes, but is not limited to, when you purchase a product or service from a Provider after clicking on an affiliate link on http://mikescherermarketing.com.

Commissions and Referral Fees
Whenever someone orders through your Affiliate link, your Affiliate ID is credited with a referral fee if one is specified on our Website.

Income Tax Liabilities
Each Affiliate acts as an independent contractor and as such is responsible for any or all United States, state, or foreign income taxes and any other tax liabilities that affect or concern the sales of the products or services, in your state or location. If you are NOT a resident of the United States, the Program Operator will withhold the appropriate U.S. income tax applicable to foreign nationals, prior to your receipt of any commissions. The Program Operator does so pursuant to the United States Internal Revenue Service laws (also known as the United States Tax Code) and other applicable laws and regulations. It is the Affiliate’s sole responsibility, and not the responsibility of the Program Operator, to take any steps necessary to recover these sums under the Tax Code and other applicable laws and regulations.
Embargoed Nations & Specially Designated Nationals
The United States controls the export of products and information. Each Affiliate agrees to comply with such restrictions and to not export or re-export the materials (including software) to countries or persons prohibited under the export control laws. By becoming an Affiliate, you are agreeing that you are not in a country where such export is prohibited or are not a person or entity to which export is prohibited. You are responsible for compliance with the laws of your local jurisdiction with regard to the import, export, or re-export of the materials (including software).
Each Affiliate is responsible for compliance with all applicable U.S. laws and regulations, including but not limited to, those laws pertaining to export control. By registering as an Affiliate, you warrant that you are not a citizen or resident of a country designated as having Embargoed Nation Status and further, you also warrant that you are not on the list of Specially Designated Nationals or Blocked Persons maintained by the U.S. Treasury Department. The products and/or services are exported from the United States in accordance with the Export Administration Regulations. Diversion to other countries is contrary to U.S. law and is prohibited.
In compliance with the United States Patriot Act, only those who have provided appropriate identification information and do not reside within an embargoed nation and who are not listed on the Specially Designated Nationals list may receive commission checks paid by either the Program Operator or its agent.
Commissions are paid once per month by payment processor on the Weekly on Friday day of the month for sales made through the Weekly on Friday day of the previous month, and are paid by the Program Operator.
There is a minimum commission amount of 25. This is the minimum amount that you must earn before you will be paid commissions. In any commission period, your commission must exceed this amount before you will receive any sums for that period. Commissions below this minimum amount will be held until such time as the commission equals or exceeds this amount.
Commissions are not paid for any sales for which payment has not been received, or for any transaction that has been rejected for any reason.
We are not responsible for paying interest to Affiliates for accrued but not yet delivered commission payments.
If a transaction incurs a charge-back, or if an online transaction is not completed in every way, no commission payment is due to the Affiliate. If a commission has already been paid, then it will be deducted from an active Affiliate’s future commissions.
All commissions are paid in US Dollars by PayPal or check. Affiliates requesting bank drafts will have a processing fee of $10.00 deducted from the check. This fee may change at any time.
Each Affiliate is responsible for selecting the payment processor, through which to receive their commissions/referral fees, from the payment processors supported by the Program Operator. If you elect a payment processor through which to receive your commissions and you later terminate the account or the account becomes unavailable for any reason, the Program Operator is not responsible for your not receiving the money.
Each Affiliate is responsible for always maintaining the payment processor through which they receive their commissions/referral fees OR selecting an alternate method of payment supported by the Program Operator. This election is entirely made by the Affiliate and the Program Operator assumes no responsibility for non-receipt of payments made according to the payment processor elected by the Affiliate, or the Affiliate’s lack of ability to then conform to the payment processors or processes supported by the Program Operator.
The Program Operator assumes no responsibility for an Affiliate not electing a payment processor. If an Affiliate fails to elect a payment processor, any sums due will be paid via check and any fees applicable to payments by check or bank draft will be deducted.
Mixing Of Products
As an Affiliate of the Program Operator, your website on which you advertise any products or services of the Program Operator may only include products that are not capable of being viewed by persons 13 years of age or younger unless the Program Operator specifically allows such products. Your website may NOT contain any content or images that are NOT suitable for being viewed by persons 13 years of age or younger if you include any reference whatsoever to the Program Operator, the Website, the eBook(s), or your Affiliate Link. On any website on which you include any reference whatsoever to the Program Operator, its products, services, and eBooks, you may NOT include any reference whatsoever to any form of “Adult” content. Any violation of these requirements will result in immediate termination of your Affiliate status and you shall forfeit any commissions/referral fees that may be due. In the event that any violation of these requirements results in the suspension or termination of any payment processor for the Program Operator, you shall be liable for liquidated damages in the amount of $10,000 as well as actual and any consequential or actual damages that the Program Operator may incur.
Payment Processor Fees
All commissions are calculated based on the net transaction. In other words, all taxes, shipping, and payment processing fees are first deducted from the sums collected from the customer. The remaining amount is a commissionable sale. The commission rate listed on the Website is then applied to determine the amount due the Affiliate. Any sums paid for taxes, shipping, and payment processor fees are not commissionable. The Program Operator may also charge a per transaction fee for every transaction processed. In the event that a per-transaction fee is applied, the amount of the fee can be seen on the Website. Any such fee is not commissionable and is also deducted from the sums paid by the customer, prior to the calculation of any commission.
Spam And Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE)
The Program Operator does not tolerate the sending of unsolicited commercial emails (UCE a.k.a. junk email or spam email) which promote, or make reference to the Program Operator, or any of their associated companies or Websites, Partners, or employees, the Websites, products or services. The provisions of the Program Operator’s Anti-Spam Policy shall apply to each Affiliate. Any Affiliate who, in the opinion of the Program Operator, breaches this rule will have their Affiliate status canceled and any outstanding commissions will be forfeited.
Investigations by Law Enforcement or Government Agencies
The Program Operator reserves the right to reject any Affiliate application or immediately terminate any Affiliate from the Program who has ever been investigated by any law enforcement or government agency for the Affiliate’s marketing or advertising practices in online or offline business ventures. Every applicant for the Program must make full disclosure to the Program Operator of any such investigations, including the results of such investigations so that the Program Operator can make an informed decision as to whether the applicant is eligible for the Program.
Once an applicant is approved, the applicant must also make full disclosure to the Program Operator immediately of any such investigations that occur during the term such approved applicant is an Affiliate. Any violation of the provisions of this paragraph shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement, the Affiliate’s status as an Affiliate under this Program shall terminate without notice, and the Affiliate shall forfeit all Affiliate commissions as partial compensation for the damages inflicted to the Program Operator by Affiliate’s breach.
The Program Operator and their associated companies operate with the strictest codes of professional conduct. Any Affiliate who brings the Program Operator or their employees, partners, or associates into disrepute, or who promotes any form of slander, racism, or unfair business practices, will have their Affiliate status canceled and any outstanding commissions will be forfeited.
The Program Operator reserves the right to reject any Affiliate application if, in the Program Operator’s opinion, that person or entity violates established laws or commonly held standards of decency. For example, we will reject applications from any person or company that promotes any form of violence, illegal activities, or from applicants who the Program Operator prefers not to be associated with.
Keywords and Promotion
Without express prior written approval from the Program Operator, no Affiliate shall register, own, or use a domain name that includes key words or key phrases that includes the Program Operator’s trademarks, service marks, and/or words contained in the Program Operator’s domain name http://mikescherermarketing.com. Without express prior written approval from the Program Operator, no Affiliate shall use any of these words either in a pay-per-click (PPC) or cost-per-action (CPA) campaign. Any violation of the provisions of this paragraph shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement, the Affiliate’s status as an Affiliate under this Program shall terminate without notice, and the Affiliate shall forfeit all Affiliate commissions as partial compensation for the damages inflicted to the Program Operator by Affiliate’s breach.
Negative Promotional Content
Affiliates shall not use negative content to promote products or services sold by the Program Operator. This includes, but is not limited to, use of reviews or ads that refer to Program Operator products or services as a “scam,” “fraud,” “bogus,” “fake,” “sucks,” or synonyms or phrases that convey the same meaning. The Program Operator is aware that this marketing tactic may generate leads for an Affiliate but it does so at the expense of the Program Operator’s good name. Any violation of the provisions of this paragraph shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement, the Affiliate’s status as an Affiliate under this Program shall terminate without notice, and the Affiliate shall forfeit all Affiliate commissions as partial compensation for the damages inflicted to the Program Operator by Affiliate’s breach.
Monetary Incentives Prohibited
Affiliates shall not use cash rebates or other monetary incentives to promote products or services sold by the Program Operator. This includes, but is not limited to, offering to rebate a portion of the purchase price to anyone who purchases via the Affiliate’s link for the Program. Such monetary compensation devalues the Program at the expense of the Program Operator. Any violation of the provisions of this paragraph shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement, the Affiliate’s status as an Affiliate under this Program shall terminate without notice, and the Affiliate shall forfeit all Affiliate commissions as partial compensation for the damages inflicted to the Program Operator by Affiliate’s breach. However, nothing in this paragraph shall prevent an Affiliate from providing non-monetary bonuses to purchasers as an inducement to purchase through the Affiliate’s link provided that such bonuses are otherwise permitted by law.
Affiliate Sales and Tracking
After signing up for the Affiliate program, you will receive a unique Affiliate URL (“Affiliate Link”) which you will use to advertise the Website. When someone clicks through this URL, a cookie will be set in their browser with your Affiliate ID and their IP address may also be logged with your Affiliate ID. During that visit to the Website or any later visit, when a purchase is made the commission will be given based on the existence of the cookie.
In order to receive proper credit for sales, a person or entity must purchase through your unique Affiliate URL. Masking or cloaking of the links (whether done by software or by a script, and sometimes referred to as “Affiliate link cloaking”) may or may not work with parts of the Website and this Affiliate program. The Program Operator allows masking or cloaking but you must provide a repeatable process for our verification of the cloaked link, otherwise the use of the masked or cloaked link is disallowed.
Term and Termination

These changes will come into force immediately upon posting. The Affiliate’s continued participation in the Affiliate program following the said posting of a change notice or new agreement shall constitute binding acceptance by the Affiliate of the change.
