All Affiliates must read and agree to the following terms...

This Affiliate Agreement ("Agreement") contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to an individual's or entity's participation in the Calendar Updates Affiliate Program (the "Program"). As used in this Agreement, "we" means Calendar Updates Company, ("Calendar Updates") and "you" means the applicant. "Site" means a World Wide Web site and, depending on the context, refers either to Calendar Updates' site or to the site that you will link to our site.

1. Enrollment in the Program

To begin the enrollment process, you will submit a completed Program application via the site. We will evaluate your application in good faith and will notify you of your acceptance or rejection. We may reject your application if we determine (in our sole discretion) that your site is unsuitable for the Program.


  • DO NOT promote violence or sexually explicit materials

  • DO NOT promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age

  • DO NOT promote illegal activities

  • DO NOT violate intellectual property rights

In this regard, you understand that we reserve the right to conclude that your Site is unsuitable in accordance with our standards, and we may come to such a conclusion even if it is based upon our opinion or mere suspicion or belief, without any duty to prove that our opinion or suspicion is well-founded and even if our opinion or suspicion is proven not to be well-founded or if others' sites have been accepted despite having the same or similar characteristics as your Site. You also understand that if we accept your application, such acceptance shall not imply that your Site does not meet one or more of the criteria that would have permitted us to reject your application. If we reject your application, you are welcome to reapply to the Program at any time.


2. Anti-Spam Policy

By accepting the Calendar Updates Affiliate Agreement you also agree not to promote your affiliate website through any of the following means.

  • Sending unsolicited email for commercial purposes (aka "SPAM")

  • Posting a single article or advertisement, about which we receive multiple complaints, to Usenet or other Newsgroups, forums, email mailing lists or other similar groups or lists

  • Posting to any Usenet or other newsgroup, forum, email mailing list or other similar group or list articles which are off-topic according to the charter or other owner-published FAQ or description of the group or list

  • Engaging in any of the foregoing activities using the service of another provider, but channeling such activities through a service provided by Calendar Updates (such as using an Calendar Updates-supplied mailbox as a maildrop, or referring to a URL hosted on our server)

  • Falsifying user information, including the falsification of e-mail return addresses

Calendar Updates considers the above practices to constitute abuse of its service and of the recipients of such unsolicited mailings and/or postings, who often bear the expense. Therefore, these practices are prohibited by the terms and conditions of the services offered by Calendar Updates. Engaging in one or more of these practices may result in:

  • Termination of the offender's account and/or access to services provided by Calendar Updates

  • Dropping of mail messages that do not contain the proper and necessary information

  • Informing any or all authorities of offender's actions upon receipt of appropriate subpoena

  • Informing any or all recipients of offender's SPAM of the personal and public information of the user

NOTE: This Anti-Spam Policy is based on the Anti-Spam Policy of our Internet Service Provider. Calendar Updates will immediately notify authorities of any actions taken in regard to this Anti-Spam Policy. Calendar Updates reserves the right to implement any and all of the above actions as it may deem appropriate at any time, without limitation, in regard to upholding this Anti-Spam Policy. However, by not implementing a specific action, Calendar Updates is not implying consent, lack of wrongdoing by the offender, nor limiting its response in the future. Nothing contained in this policy shall be construed to limit the actions or remedies of Calendar Updates in any way concerning the foregoing activities.


3. Referral Fees

For every customer who purchases one or more schedules or other related products from our Site, Calendar Updates will pay you or your company a referral fee. Calendar Updates shall pay you a referral fee on click-throughs from your Site to ("click-throughs") that result in sales on For each click-through sale we shall pay Participant a referral fee.


4. Fee Schedule


Referral Fee % Per Sale

1st Tier 20%
2nd Tier 5%


5. Cookies

The Program offers a 30-day return day cookie policy for affiliates. This means that you will get credit for all sales you referred to us up to 30 days after the initial visit. If a customer visits your site, clicks on a link, and doesn't purchase that day, but does place an order within the next 30 days - you still earn commissions.


6. Fee Payment

Referral fees are paid on a monthly basis. Within thirty (30) days after the end of each month during the term of this Agreement, we shall pay you the applicable referral fee for the preceding month. The referral fee is contingent upon any cancellations, chargebacks, refunds, and credits.

We will send you a check for the referral fees earned on products that were funded during that pay period. In the event that the monthly applicable referral fee is less than $25.00, payment of such referral fee will be deferred until the cumulative amount exceeds $25.00. All payments under this Agreement shall be in US dollars.

If a product that generated a referral fee is returned by the customer after we have paid you the referral fee, we will deduct the corresponding fee from your next payment. If there is no subsequent payment, we will send you a bill for the fee.

You agree not to utilize spam (unsolicited e-mail) to advertise our services. If we believe that you are spamming and we may come to such a conclusion even if it is based upon our opinion or mere suspicion or belief, without any duty to prove that our opinion or suspicion is well-founded and even if our opinion or suspicion is proven not to be well-founded, we can terminate this Agreement immediately. Payments made to you will be reported on Form 1099 as required by law.


7. Policies and Pricing

Customers who buy products through this Program will be deemed to be customers of Calendar Updates. Accordingly, all Calendar Updates rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service, and product sales will apply to those customers. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. For example, we will determine the prices to be charged for products sold under this Program in accordance with our own pricing policies. Product prices and availability may vary from time to time. Because price changes may affect products that you already have listed on your site, you may not include price information in your product descriptions. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to present accurate information, but we cannot guarantee the availability or price of any particular product.


8. Identifying Yourself as an Associate

We will make available to you a banner image that identifies your site as a Program participant. You must display this logo or the phrase "In association with Calendar Updates" somewhere on your site.

We may revoke your license at any time by giving you written notice.
