This Affiliate Program Agreement (the “Agreement”) is a binding agreement between adam.ai Inc. (“adam.ai”, the “Company”) and you, the business entering into this Agreement, (“Affiliate”), (collectively “the Parties”). This Agreement governs your participation in the adam.ai Affiliate Program as further described herein (the “Program”).
PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY. IT CONTAINS ARBITRATION PROVISIONS AND LIABILITY LIMITS, AMONG OTHER CLAUSES. IF YOU ARE ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT ON BEHALF OF A COMPANY OR OTHER LEGAL ENTITY, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO BIND SUCH ENTITY AND ITS AFFILIATES TO THIS AGREEMENT, IN WHICH CASE THE TERMS “YOU” OR “YOUR” SHALL REFER TO SUCH ENTITY AND ITS AFFILIATES. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE SUCH AUTHORITY, OR IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE TERMS, YOU MUST NOT ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT AND MAY NOT USE THE PROGRAM. BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU ARE AT LEAST THE AGE OF MAJORITY IN YOUR STATE OR PROVINCE OF RESIDENCE, OR THAT YOU ARE THE AGE OF MAJORITY IN YOUR STATE OR PROVINCE OF RESIDENCE AND YOU HAVE GIVEN US YOUR CONSENT TO ALLOW ANY OF YOUR MINOR DEPENDENTS TO USE THE PROGRAM.
YOU MAY NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT. To enroll in the Program the Affiliate must accept the Program terms available on the PartnerStack platform.
Company is in the business of offering a meeting management platform to businesses. Affiliate is in a position to refer prospective customers to Company. This Agreement provides the terms and conditions under which Affiliate will do so as part of the Program.
By accepting this Agreement and participating in the Program, Affiliate may, from time to time, refer new prospective customers (the “New Customers”) to Company on a non-exclusive basis. Company will pay Affiliate a Referral Fee for each Successful Referral. A “Successful Referral” occurs where: (a) a New Customer signs up for the adam.ai services directly using Affiliate’s dedicated “Affiliate Link” provided by Company and (b) the New Customer converts to a paid adam.ai account directly following the New Customer’s access to the adam.ai services following the use of the dedicated Affiliate Link to Company. Further, a referral will only be a “Successful Referral” if the New Customer is not a customer that (i) the Company has already contracted with or contacted about its services or (ii) has already been referred to Company by a third party.
For each Successful Referral, Company shall pay Affiliate a payout based on the upgraded subscription of each New Customer that Affiliate refers. For the specific payouts, see here: https://adamai.partnerstack.com/.
Payments in the adam.ai Partner Program are handled by PartnerStack (the “Payment Provider”). In order to receive payments under this Agreement, Affiliate must create and maintain an account with Payment Provider in the Payment Provider’s online or app-based dashboard (“Payment Provider Platform”), which is provided pursuant to terms directly between the Payment Provider and Affiliate. Affiliate must keep all information updated and complete within the Payment Provider Platform to receive proper payments. Payments returned due to incorrect payment email addresses or other incorrect information will not be returned. The Payment Provider Platform will reflect payment history to Affiliate, and the parties agree that: (a) the data shown in the Payment Provider Platform will govern payments to be made, subject to Company’s right to correct errors based on its own records and (b) records and payments will be deemed complete, incontestable, and final twelve (12) months after the applicable Successful Referral occurs.
Affiliate is an independent contractor of Company and nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to create any association, partnership, joint venture, employee, or agency relationship between the Company and Affiliate for any purpose. Affiliate has no authority (and shall not hold itself out as having authority) to bind Company and Affiliate shall not make any agreements or representations on Company’s behalf. Either Party is solely responsible for paying all of its costs and expenses related to this Agreement.
This Agreement is an annual contract and shall commence upon the date that Affiliate joins the Program, and will continue unless otherwise terminated by one of the Parties pursuant to paragraph 8 of the Agreement.
During the course of this Agreement, it may be necessary for either Party to share proprietary and/or confidential information with the other Party, including, but not limited to trade secrets and non-public industry knowledge (the “Confidential Information”). Either Party will not share any Confidential Information with any third party at any time. Affiliate will also not use any Confidential information for his/her or a third party’s personal benefit at any time. This section remains in full force and effect even after termination of the Agreement.
This Agreement may be terminated at any time by: (a) either Party upon 30 days written notice to the other Party or (b) by Company immediately upon notice if Affiliate breaches any provision of this Agreement. If Company terminates the Agreement , payment obligations of the Agreement for Successful Referrals shall survive for a period of one (1) month after termination of the Agreement; provided that Affiliate is only entitled to Referral Fees for New Customers which it has referred to Company through a Successful Referral sent prior to the effective date of termination of the Agreement.
Both Parties represent that they are fully authorized to enter into this Agreement and that each Party shall comply with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations and will not violate or infringe upon any third-party rights in its performance of its rights and obligations under this Agreement. Affiliate further represents and warrants that:
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL COMPANY BE LIABLE TO AFFILIATE OR ANY THIRD PARTY UNDER ANY CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LABILITY OR OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT OR SPECIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION AND THE LIKE), WHETHER FORESEEABLE OR UNFORESEEABLE, REGARDLESS OF THE BASIS OF THE CLAIM AND EVEN IF THE PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.COMPANY WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR THE ACTS OR OMISSIONS OF THE PAYMENT PROVIDER OR THE PAYMENT PROVIDER PLATFORM.
