Affiliate Terms and Conditions

The Host Like Toast affiliate program is designed to help you generate income in exchange for referring new hosting clients to us. Listed below are the terms and conditions associated with our affiliate program.

Affiliate Payments

Affiliates are paid either on a one-time commission or recurring monthly payment basis, for each hosting account referred to our services. A signup is counted when a customer first clicks on an affiliate referral link, completes the signup process and stays active for 90 days.

Affiliate accounts must be active at the time of the referral. No credit will be given to your affiliate account for sales that occurred before you joined the affiliate program.

It is not the responsibility of Host Like Toast to ensure you are accredited for each referral. The system uses cookies to track clicks on your referral links. If the client wipes cookies, or uses another referral link before purchasing, it is not the responsibility of Host Like Toast to honour your referral. If a good case can be made as to the legitimacy of a referral claim, we may, at our sole discretion awardthe affiliate referral.

Payments are processed and sent out from the 16th through the last day of the month or until all payments have been sent. Once your payment has been processed its status will change from pending to sent. EXAMPLE: All referrals made in January will will be sent starting on the 16th of March. Affiliates with January commissions should receive their payment around the end of March.

Affiliates must generate a balance of £75 or more before their account is eligible for payment.

Currently affiliates can choose only to receive commission payments via PayPal. For larger affiliates with balances of over £5,000 per month we offer Wire Transfer.

Affiliates are responsible for ensuring that all payee information is up to date in the affiliate system. We are not responsible for lost/stolen payments. The affiliate is responsible for keeping all information up to date including postal and email addresses, name, payment information, tax information or any other personal information that will impact the ability to issue a valid commission payment. Failure to provide current information may result in forfeiture of any commissions due to you. Commissions that are left unclaimed or are returned for invalid or insufficient address information or for other reasons may be forfeited as well.

There is a £35 charge to re-issue payment and it will be deducted from the affiliate earnings. Payments will only be reissued within 120 days of original issue date. After 120 days the payment will be forfeited.

Affiliates are responsible for making sure they are able to accept payments. Please ensure that your bank or PayPal account can accept payments from UK based companies.

Affiliates are responsible for any and all fees, taxes, exchange rates, surcharges and other expenses incurred in order to receive their commissions. Please check with your local banking institution or PayPal to find out if any of these apply for your account.

Affiliate Awards Reversals

Referrals must have an active hosting account for 90 consecutive days or commissions will be reversed.

Referrals that downgrade their hosting package below 1 year will be reversed.

Referrals that are found to be fraudulent (false information, fake/stolen credit cards etc.) will be reversed regardless of the amount of time that has passed since the signup occurred.

Referrals that issue a credit card charge back will be reversed.

Referrals that cancel before you have met the $100 payout minimum will be reversed.

Advertising Compliance:

Affiliates MAY NOT offer cash back, rewards or incentives.

Affiliates MAY NOT bid on trademark, trademark +, or misspelled keywords for the purpose of PPC on the search engines (Google, Yahoo, MSN, Ask etc.).

Affiliates MAY use the approved banners and ad text code found in the affiliate management center.

Affiliates are responsible for ensuring that their tracking code is working properly before sending traffic to our servers. Any modification to the links is the sole responsibility of the affiliate – commissions will not be paid for tracking errors caused by editing, masking or tampering with your links.

Affiliates MAY NOT use cookie stuffing techniques that set the tracking cookie without the user actually clicking on the referral link (for example a 1×1 pixel iframe).

The use of redirected pages and links to send a user to our site is prohibited. Example: you may not have a PPC link on a search engine that redirects the user to our site.

Domain forwarding is prohibited – you may not purchase a domain and set it to forward directly to our site using your affiliate link.

Affiliates MAY NOT copy our website or portions of it and display them on their own site or subdomain.

We reserve the right to withhold commission fees and/or cancel the affiliate relationship for failure to comply with any of the mentioned guidelines or other legal regulations.

Affiliate Account Deactivation

Affiliate accounts may be deactivated at any time without warning or notice. Your account WILL BE DEACTIVATED and commissions set to $0 for failure to comply with the Affiliate Terms and Advertising Compliance contained herein.

Any false or misleading advertising or suspected fraudulent activity associated with your affiliate account will result in immediate deactivation.

Affiliate accounts generating a large number of fraudulent accounts will be deactivated.

Affiliates may not resell hosting. All clients must provide their own payment method and contact information to be eligible for affiliate commissions.

If you would like to discontinue your affiliate status, simply remove your affiliate links and no longer promote them. For accounting purposes your account and personal information will not be removed from our system.
