WHEREAS, Affiliate desires to become an affiliate member of the Program, subject to the terms and conditions stated herein; and,
WHEREAS, Reliable Servers and Affiliate have determined that it is in their respective interests to enter into this Agreement.
NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, and in consideration of the mutual covenants and conditions herein set forth, and with the intent to be legally bound thereby, Reliable Servers and Affiliate hereby agree as follows:
The Reliable Servers Affiliate Program is second to none in the gaming industry. The goal of the Reliable Servers Affiliate Program is to allow Affiliates the opportunity to generate revenue by advertising and marketing the SITE without dealing with the complexities of running a file server company of their own. SITE agrees to provide access to, and membership in, the Program to Affiliate and to provide Affiliate with the ability to market, advertise and promote certain content, images, recordings, video, audio, links, computer script, advertising banners, and other promotional materials (hereinafter, “Materials”) that are associated with the Program from time to time, and hereby grants a non-exclusive, restricted, revocable license to use such Materials solely for the purposes set forth in this Agreement. The SITE reserves the unequivocal right to select, alter, delete, add to, or remove any and all Materials for use by Affiliate. SITE's Materials may not be used in violation of any term contained in this Agreement. Affiliate's license to use the Materials shall automatically terminate, and all such rights shall automatically revert to SITE upon cancellation of the Affiliate's membership or withdrawal from the Program by the Affiliate. Affiliate may not copy, reproduce, alter, modify, change, broadcast, distribute, transmit, disseminate, sell or offer for sale in any manner, the Materials at any time anywhere in the world except as expressly authorized by the SITE in writing. Upon acceptance into the Program, SITE will begin providing users with the information necessary to participate in the Program. Logos, graphics or text may be created by the Affiliate, with SITE's permission. The SITE reserves the right to require any text, online agreement, documents, notices, disclaimers, or age verification devices that may be necessary or desirable to protect the SITE's or the Affiliate's legal interests.
The Affiliate shall be solely responsible for all content available on or through its website served by Reliable Servers' services, and shall at all times be subject to the terms of this Agreement. Affiliate further warrants that its website and Materials served by Reliable Servers' Services will not infringe or contain any content that infringes upon or violates any intellectual property rights, or otherwise violates any applicable law, rule or regulation. Reliable Servers shall have no obligations with respect to the content available on or through any participating website, including but not limited to, any duty to review or monitor any such content. Thus, Affiliate is solely responsible for the content on Affiliate's website. Reliable Servers owns the rights to any and all content and Materials located on Affiliate's site, whether or not provided by Reliable Servers. As more fully described infra, Reliable Servers shall remain the owner of all intellectual property rights pertaining to the Materials, which may be licensed from third party content producers. Any and all derivative works generated by Affiliate shall inure to the benefit of Reliable Servers, which shall be considered the owner or license holder of such derivative works, to the extent permitted by law.
Affiliate's license to use this material shall automatically terminate, and all such rights shall automatically revert to Reliable Servers upon cancellation of the Affiliate's membership or withdrawal from the Program by the Affiliate.
Upon acceptance into the Program, Reliable Servers will begin providing users with the information necessary to participate in the Program and begin promoting the Reliable Servers Website.
To begin the enrollment procedure, you must submit a completed Application form through our Affiliate Website located at: http://www.reliableservers.com/corporate/affiliate.php . When you sign up, you must provide a valid email address. Failure to do so will result in your account being deleted. We will evaluate your application in good faith and will notify you of your acceptance or rejection. We reserve the discretion to accept or reject applications for any reason including, but not limited to: 1) unlawful content appearing on your website; 2) defamatory, obscene, harassing or otherwise objectionable content appearing on your website; 3) if your website promotes or facilitates illegal activity, or violates the rights of others such as copyright, trademark or other intellectual property infringement; 4) if you encourage password theft or hacking; 5) if your site does not refer a sufficient number of orders; or 6) if Reliable Servers deems your application or website to be unsuitable for any reason.
Affiliate agrees to notify Reliable Servers of the URL's where the Reliable Servers Website(s) will be promoted.
This Agreement and the provisions hereof, shall be in full force and effect commencing on the date accepted by Reliable Servers and continuing until terminated by either of the parties in accordance with the Termination provisions set forth infra.
Affiliates will be compensated with a “referral” fee for each person who meets the following two requirements: (1) any person who has been directed as a "referral" through a hyperlink on Affiliate's website, in the form of a banner or promotional link supplied by Reliable Servers; AND (2) who in turn orders services from the SITE. Affiliate will be compensated with a commission or referral fee according to the terms of this Agreement. The Clanserver's Affiliate Program is a revenue-sharing relationship between the SITE and its Affiliate. The SITE will pay Affiliate fifteen dollars (15) of the initial signup for each referral to the SITE or 100% comission on the referral's first month fee. Affiliate's payouts will be debited for cancelled “referral” orders. Affiliates will receive no commission for activity determined to be fraudulent by Reliable Servers, including but not limited to credit card numbers in a negative bin number data base, multiple orders from a single email address, orders with the same credit card number, sequential names or patterns of names, many orders from a specific website in a short time span, and multiple attempts to order from the same credit card. Affiliates agree that Reliable Servers, in its sole discretion, may deny or withhold payment and terminate Affiliate's website due to suspicious behavior including but not limited to numerous charge backs or subscription cancellations.
Reliable Servers will track each referral from an Affiliate and will provide an Affiliate login page so that Affiliate can monitor its account. The login will, at a minimum, show the Affiliate each subscriber referred as well as the amount of revenue each Affiliate has generated.
Affiliate agrees to periodically review this Agreement for any changes, which are effective immediately upon posting.
Reliable Servers and Affiliate acknowledge that “time is of the essence” in the commencement of this Agreement. Reliable Servers will devote all commercially reasonable efforts to provide Affiliate with all necessary Materials as soon as reasonably possible.
Reliable Servers reserves the right to determine the manner in which payments will be processed, and the identity of any third party processor used for billing purposes, which will be posted on the SITE at: https://my.reliableservers.com/affiliate/payout.php. Disbursements are made to Affiliates by Reliable Servers twice a month.
Affiliate warrants that Affiliate is the sole owner of any and all necessary rights, title, and interest to the content contained on the Affiliate's Website, and that such Website is free of claims to the content by third parties. Affiliate further warrants, under the penalties of perjury of the laws of the United States, that Affiliate is at least eighteen (18) years of age, and can submit proof of age upon request by Reliable Servers. Affiliate also warrants that all Materials shall only be transmitted and distributed by Affiliate's website to willing adults and in compliance with the SITE's spam policy.
Reliable Servers makes no representations or warranties other than those specifically contained herein, and specifically disclaims any implied warranties, including merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Reliable Servers makes no representations of success or profitability and does not monitor or supervise the SITE.
Affiliate agrees to be bound by the following general policies in connection with all content with which Reliable Servers' Materials are associated:
Suspected violation of any of the Acceptable Use Policies may result in termination from the Program and forfeiture of any future commissions or payments, whether earned or unearned.
Affiliate may use any reasonable promotional tool desired, with the following exceptions:

Please do not sent other inquires or information to our Designated Agent.
The following termination rights are in addition to the termination rights that may be provided elsewhere in this Agreement:
In no event shall either party be liable to the other for any indirect, special, incidental, punitive or consequential damages, including but not limited to, loss of profits, loss of data, loss of business or other loss arising out of or resulting from this Agreement, even if the other party has been advised of the possibility of such damages. The foregoing shall apply regardless of the negligence or other fault of either party and regardless of whether such liability sounds in contract, negligence, tort or any other theory of liability. Notwithstanding the aforementioned limitations of liability, you agree that if Reliable Servers is held liable to you for damages, the total amount of liquidated damages for any and all claims shall not exceed ten dollars ($10.00).
Affiliate shall remain solely responsible for the operation of its own site, and Reliable Servers shall remain solely responsible for operation of the Program.
