In consideration of participating in the Program, You agree to the following terms:
The affiliate program pays percentage commissions on customer purchases completed through your unique referral code to click through and buy any Strands' listed products. The program commissions are presented on the "Commission & Business Details" section of the Program Application page. This program begins on May 1, 2020, and will continue without expiration until Strands manually terminates the offer. Strands reserves the right to cease affiliate marketing operations at any time for any reason with one or all affiliates. Although not explicitly followed as a matter of policy, if Strands ceases any affiliate operations, we will provide fair and ample termination notice and individually evaluate existing affiliate campaigns to determine exact end dates on a case-by-case basis.
Payouts will not occur until after each referral’s 30 day return period expires to ensure such purchases are genuine. Supply chain times may vary due to raw material sourcing, manufacturing, and shipping from Los Angeles, CA to respective destinations. Please understand these times as part of customized product business constraints. Also, note that Strands aims to maintain a constant inventory of products and materials to mitigate any shipping delays.
Under no circumstances shall You send commercial electronic mail messages as defined in the new Federal spam law, the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 [the “Act”], concerning Strand’s Program. For clarification, this does not prohibit you from sending transactional or relationship messages as defined in the Act. Strands reserves the right to collect, withhold, or cancel any and all compensation related to the content an affiliate sends via commercial electronic mail messages if marketing methods are unethical or otherwise unprofessional from a marketing campaign perspective. If marketing campaigns are found to be below the standards of Strands' preferred marketing tact, we may request that You alter marketing methods to continue a business relationship with Strands.
The tools, products and creative assets (collectively, “Assets”) that is provided to You by Strands, Refersion and Shopify provide valuable information vital to the success of the Program, including information that helps make sure transactions generated by You are properly attributed to You for Payout calculations. Thus, each of these Assets must be used in their intended manners as instructed by Refersion. You agree that You will not corrupt, modify or disable the tracking functionality provided to You related to the Program.
Promotion on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Reddit, TikTok and other social media platforms is permitted, following these general guidelines:
You ARE ALLOWED to promote offers to your lists; more specifically, you’re welcome to use your affiliate links on your social media pages. For example, you may post, “$10 off sale at Strands with code EXAMPLE10.”
You ARE PROHIBITED from posting your affiliate links on Strands' Social Media company pages in an attempt to turn those links into affiliate sales.
You shall include a disclosure statement within any and all pages/posts where affiliate links for our affiliate program are posted as an endorsement or review, and where it is not clear that the link is a paid advertisement. This disclosure statement should be clear and concise, stating that we are compensating you for your review or endorsement. If you received the product for free for review, this also must be clearly stated in your disclosure.
Strands reserves the right to reverse orders due to order cancellations, duplicate tracking, returns, disputed charges, and program violations as outlined in these terms and conditions.
Additionally, if we ask you for clarification or more information on any orders or clicks that we suspect may be in violation of our terms and conditions, we expect that you will respond in a timely and honest manner. Below are violations of our communications policy:
