Terms and Conditions
This agreement describes the terms and conditions to be part of the Great Lakes Gelatin® Company's affiliate program. In this agreement, the term "Affiliate" refers to you (the applicant). In this agreement, “Great Lakes Gelatin® Company” refers to the party with whom you are entering this agreement. By applying to the Great Lakes Gelatin® Company affiliate program you are confirming that you have read the agreement and agree to the terms and conditions.
1. Enrollment in the Affiliate Program
You must submit an Affiliate Program application from our website. You must accurately complete the application to become an affiliate (and provide us with future updates) and not use any aliases or other means to mask your true identity or contact information. After we review your application, we will notify you of your acceptance or rejection to the Affiliate Program, generally within five (5) business days. We may accept or reject your application at our sole discretion for any reason.
For a sale to generate a commission to an Affiliate, the customer must complete the order form and remit full payment for the product(s). Commissions will only be paid on sales that are made when the customer clicks through qualified, correctly structured Affiliate links. Properly coded links are the sole responsibility of the affiliate. Commissions can be viewed on the Affiliate Dashboard.
Commissions will be held for 30 days from the date of the transaction and be paid via PayPal from that date forward provided that your account is greater than $50 at the time of payout request and a valid Paypal email address has been provided for your account. We reserve the right to chargeback to your account any previously paid Qualified Actions that are later determined to have not met the requirements to be a Qualified Action.
In the event that Affiliate disputes in good faith any portion of a commission, Affiliate must submit that dispute to Great Lakes Gelatin® Company in writing and in sufficient detail within thirty (30) days of the date on the commission. If Affiliate does not dispute the commission as set forth herein, then Affiliate agrees that it irrevocably waives any claims based upon that invoice.
Great Lakes Gelatin® Company will send 1099 forms to those who earn more than $600 in commissions in one calendar year.
In the event a customer requests a refund for a transaction for which the Affiliate has earned commissions, any commissions earned on the refund amount will be deducted from the Affiliate’s balance.
