AFFILIATE PROGRAM AGREEMENT

Thank you for your interest in the Hardcore Italians Affiliate Program (the "Affiliate Program"). This agreement ("the Agreement") is made by and between Hardcore Italians, Inc. (hereinafter "the Company"), a corporation organized and existing under the laws of the state of Illinois, with its principal place of business located at 6804 Hobson Valley Drive STE 120, Woodridge, Illinois 60517 and the affiliate whose information has been provided (hereinafter "Affiliate") and will be deemed effective on the date the Affiliate applies for the program

In consideration of the terms and covenants of this agreement, and other valuable consideration, the parties agree as follows:


RECITALS

1. This Agreement may be executed online by submitting the applicable information and clicking the apply button. Clicking said button has the same force and effect as signing the Agreement by hand. The Affiliate should not click the "Apply" button unless the Affiliate has read, understood and agreed to every provision in this Agreement and its attachments, schedules, and exhibits.

2. The Affiliate acknowledges that Affiliate will not be able to participate in the Affiliate Program unless and until the Company accepts the Affiliate’s application. Company may reject an application if it is determined (in Company’s sole discretion) that the Affiliate’s website is unsuitable for the Affiliate Program. If the Company accepts an application and Affiliate’s website is thereafter determined (in Company’s sole discretion) to be unsuitable for the Affiliate Program, the Company may terminate this Agreement.

3. It is the goal of the Company to uphold the highest possible ethical standards. This goal applies to the Company’s relationship with its Affiliates as well as its relationship between Affiliates and the public.  The Terms of Service attached hereto as Schedule A were created to set a minimum threshold, but they are no substitute for Affiliate’s own investigation of the law as well as Affiliate’s own sense of what is right and wrong.  If there is ever any doubt, Affiliates should err on the side of not taking the questionable action.  Affiliates are asked to go above and beyond the requirements of this Agreement and the Terms of Service to ensure that they maintain the highest level of integrity.  The company is proud of the hardworking, honest, and dedicated Affiliates that serve on behalf of the Company.

CONTRACTOR RELATIONSHIP

This is a non-exclusive independent contractor agreement. The Affiliate is free to work (as an employee, agent, independent contractor, or owner) for any other company or individual. The Company welcomes competition and does not object or in any way restrict your ability to market for any other company, including a competitor, so long as the Affiliate is not required to terminate this agreement in order to do so. The Affiliate observes the terms of this Agreement, including the non-disclosure and non-solicitation provisions. The Affiliate acknowledges that the Company may work with other affiliates.


CONFLICTING OPPORTUNITIES

It is understood and agreed that outside opportunities requiring the termination of the Company's Affiliate Program are in direct conflict with the integrity of the agreement. 



LEAD GENERATION AND MARKETING

1. Once accepted to the Affiliate Program, Affiliates are compensated for generating purchases of the Company's products and services through the Company's website www.hardcoreitalians.com (the "Company Websites") by incorporating "Links" into the Affiliate's sites or offers that are associated with their unique Affiliate campaign ID. "Links" include the graphic and textual links, hyperlinks, lead capture forms, swipe files, text ads, and banner ads linked to Company’s Websites that Company will make available to the Affiliate directly or through other means such as the Affiliate Program webpage, dashboard or app (the “Affiliate Page”). All Links are tracked by placing a cookie or other tracking technology on the user’s web browser.

2. It is the sole responsibility of the Affiliate to properly implement, test, and fix (if necessary) Links on its sites or offers. It is not the responsibility or liability of the Company to ensure that Links are working correctly.  If the Affiliate does not properly implement the Links, the Affiliate will not be able to generate leads or purchases for Company.

3. All Links may be modified and/or expanded from time to time throughout the term of this Agreement pursuant to the mutual agreement of the parties hereto. Affiliate is not allowed to post any refunds, credits or discounts, or other content concerning the Company unless the Company has given its written permission in each instance. Affiliates may only use coupons, rebates, incentives, and discounts that are provided exclusively through the Affiliate Program using banners and links. Any violations of the terms surrounding links, coupons, rebates, incentives, credits, or discounts shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement, and may result in termination from the Affiliate Program or withholding of Commissions.

3. Affiliate acknowledges that, by participating in the Affiliate Program and placing any of the Links within offers or sites, Company may receive information from or about visitors to Affiliate’s site. Affiliate’s participation in Affiliate Program constitutes specific and unconditional consent and authorization for Company to access, receipt, storage, use, and disclosure of any and all such information, consistent with the policies and procedures set forth in the Company Privacy Policy.

4. The Affiliate consents to the Company monitoring the Affiliate’s sites or offers to determine continued compliance with this Agreement.

NOTICES:

In the event that the Affiliate is required in a civil, criminal, or regulatory proceeding to disclose any part of the Confidential Information, the Affiliate will give to Hardcore Italians a prompt written notice of such request so Hardcore Italians may seek an appropriate remedy or alternatively to waive the Affiliate’s compliance with the provisions of this Agreement in regard to the request.
