of Use And
read and signup below
Below is a detailed description of our affiliate agreement,
but I especially want to highlight 2 points right upfront.
We send payments ONLY via Paypal. If you don't
already have a Paypal account please click
here to make sure that Paypal is available in your country
and signup for one. (It's free and fast!)
B. Under no circumstances are you to promote
our sites using unsolicited emails (Spam). That would
be a really bad idea.
now continue to the more detailed agreement below...
We maintain this web site as a service and business opportunity
for our visitors.
a perfect world I'd be able to ignore writing this page, you'd
sign up and start making millions every day promoting our products
and we'd eat candy all day long without fear of cavities...
we don't live in a perfect world and I have certain things I have
to say by law to set the stage before we can get to the good stuff.
try to make this as plain and non-gibberish sounding as possible.
I apologize if you mistake that for bluntness but I have to clearly
establish the rules for playing.
like to think that I'm a very fair and reasonable guy and so are
these terms... So nothing here is placed as a 'catch' or to take
advantage of you -- I'm just trying to cover my butt from people
who aren't so fair and reasonable.
participating in this program is an open opportunity it's not
really for everyone: Only for those with the common sense to
accept and treat with it as a real business opportunity.
if you're in business you'll know that I can't openly accept liability
for anything that you (or another third party) do/don't
do, does/doesn't do and I can't promise you anything specific
-- For example, I can't promise you hands-free guaranteed financial
results or immunity to cavities.
I offer is a chance to promote our websites by the fair rules
for a cut of the dough, based on the results you actually produce.
Fair isn't it?
let me spell out each of these terms out in plain English:
1. First off,
our affiliate program is intended and provided for individuals
who are at least 18 years old. By joining you're stating that
you are at least 18 and are eligible legally for an affiliate
account and to accept this agreement.
has the right to change the commission structure at any time without
prior notice. We currently pay out a standard 45% commissions
on the net sale of a "Bass Guitar Secrets Super Course"
(Digital Download Version) and specific announced commissions
on any other products we later launch.
As most all
affiliate programs do, we may also sell some products we do not
pay commissions on. Stuff for example like (but not limited to) other people's affiliate
products we endorse, or seminars, e-classes and other things where
we have a high cost of promotion etc.
We may also
offer services that we do not pay commissions on, like
consulting and teleseminar training etc. Other offerings may come
out with a commission other varied commissions structures.
3. You DO NOT
make commissions on your own purchase of our products.
If you're signing
up as an associate in order to earn a commission on your own purchase
for a product then please don't bother completing the form.
We don't pay
out a commission on your own purchase for any of our products.
This applies to orders from your spouse, children, immediate family
members or relatives placed through your affiliate link.
sales tracked to the same IP address, company address, physical
mailing address or household are not eligible for commission payments.
In the event of a discrepancy, we reserve the right to withhold
commission payments until past the product guarantee period. (See
4. We reserve
the right to make occasional faxes and prerecorded message calls
to resellers to announce new products and so forth. We also send
out emails. If you can't deal with being notified about new chances
to make sales and beef up your commission payments, then don't
sign up as a reseller. We also send out a periodic Affiliate Update.
does NOT in any way represent that you'll make even a dime from
this program. There is even the possibility of loss of capital
from promoting it (Surprise, surprise... Can you say 'business').
If you find
a guaranteed way to make money with no risk and no investment,
wake up -- you're not living on the same planet I am.
6. We accept
no responsibility for losses or inconvenience of any kind due
to technical problems or failure. We do our best to ensure the
highest possible "uptime" of our services and should
a fault be found, we will attempt to solve it at the earliest
possible convenience, on a time scale dependent by us.
7. You agree
not to misrepresent the program in any way.
you agree not to go around guaranteeing folks that if they study
our course(s) they will become a bass recording superstar next
week. You get the idea right? But just to be safe BassGuitarTips.Com
is the sole judge of what is considered as misrepresentative.
8. You also
may not represent any of our services, websites, products or any
other relationship in a way which is considered vulgar, unethical,
immoral or unprofessional, based on our sole judgment. We reserve
the right to terminate an affiliate at any time if they are considered
to be in violation of this.
can revoke the reseller rights from any reseller without advance

we are under no obligation to continue to operate a program. We
can also suspend new affiliate applications and/or reserve the
right to accept/decline new affiliates at out discretion.
can change the product offering or the specifics of the product
offered at any time. We can also change the commissions offered
at any time. Both without prior notice. If there's a screw up
(not probable but we are human) on commissions sent to you and
we send you too much, we may subtract out commissions on the next
payment to adjust for it.
can change this agreement at any time without prior notice. It
is the reseller's responsibility to check for changes in this
13. In the event
of a refund, the reseller will be charged back the amount of commissions
paid. These are taken from the next commission payout or, if the
refund occurs prior to the associate being paid for the sale,
then they are deducted from the amount due to be paid. If no commissions
are earned by the associate during the next 3 months, an invoice
will be sent to you for the amount owing.
pays commissions twice monthly (every two weeks) by PayPal...
Usually on the 1st and the 16th of each month. No payments are
made on weekends or holidays, so if either payout day is a weekend
or holiday, we'll process it on the next working day. Sales made
from the 1st to the 15th of one month are usually paid on the
16th of that month... Sales from the 17th to the calendar end
of the month is sent on the 1st of the following month.
are paid solely through PayPal. We do not send checks or money
orders if you are not able to accept a payment through PayPal.
At the time of joining please make sure that your country is listed
with PayPal. We cannot be held responsible if you sign up for
the program without first having checked to make sure you are
listed and can be paid commissions this way.
If your country
is not listed then you will not be able to receive payments and
as a result, you should refrain from completing the application
form. If you do not check first to make sure that your country
IS listed, then make sales and cannot accept PayPal, we are under
no obligation to send payments outside of PayPal.
15. You agree
not to hold Alex Sampson nor BassGuitarTips.Com liable for failure
to perform or make sales.
16. You agree
not to engage in any fraudulent practices in order to increase
Doing so forfeits
all commissions due. Causes for termination as a reseller can
include but are not limited to fraud, suspected fraud involving
your reseller id, spam complaints attributed to your reseller
ID, and claims or representations that are inaccurate, invalid
If any affiliate
is found to have blatantly processed fraudulent transactions through
any of our chosen processing gateways, or we suspect that they
may be doing so, we reserve the right to immediately refund or
void any orders without prior notice, and immediately terminate
their account. Your details may be passed on to any government,
anti-fraud, police or legal agency or department to further look
into the situation. We reserve the right to use your personal
details in any way we deem acceptable in order to combat fraud
- which includes, but is not limited to, informing our processing
company(s) and seeking loss from damages against you.
But most people
need not worry about this - Be a nice guy and all will be well.
This is placed here strictly for the very conning, scamming, low
down dirty tricksters there are out there.
17. You agree
not to send unsolicited offers or spam my offer to anyone for
any reason and doing so forfeits all commissions due. This applies
to newsgroup spamming and FFA sites also. It is against the terms

or by purchasing any type of SAFE LIST.
We reserve the
right also to terminate an affiliate at any time for this, as
well as charge a fee of up to $500.00 US dollars per incident

in any way or set up on any of your own servers, websites, or
any other platform unless we specifically give you permission.
has given you the rights to resell this product through our program
without first requiring you to buy the product. We're pretty nice
20. This program
stands by itself. Having promotion rights through this program
does not give you the rights to resell any of BassGuitarTips.Com's
nor those of Alex Sampson outside of the program.
In other words
you do NOT, unless otherwise stated have any rights and/or ownership
whatsoever over any of our products, and selling/giving them away
outside of promoting them through a valid affiliate link are violations
of our copyright which we take very seriously! Want it put even
more plainly? Ok. You can't sign up for the affiliate program
then go make copies of our work and sell it from the street corner,
put up another website and sell the downloads there or any such
21. Should any
provision, section or part of this agreement be ruled illegal,

rightfully yours and won't hold Alex Sampson and/or BassGuitarTips.Com
liable for any lawsuits.
