7.2 The Commission amounts is calculated as a 10% commission of the Veremark services that your affiliated company/companies have subscribed to and used within the first two (2) years of them opening their account on Veremark’s platform.

(i) the total accrued unpaid Commissions must exceed the minimum threshold of £500 GBP / $1000 SGD.

8. Affiliate Promotional Materials
8.1 You are free to promote what you deem appropriate on your own website(s), but any promotion that mentions Veremark and any associated trademarks may be perceived by the press or the public as a joint effort. You should therefore note that certain forms of advertising are always prohibited by Veremark. Any promotions by Affiliate should never contravene promotional laws in their location.
8.2 Advertising commonly known as "spamming" is inappropriate and unacceptable to us and constitutes a material breach of this Affiliate Agreement. Other prohibited forms of advertising include the use of unsolicited commercial email (UCE), postings to non-commercial newsgroups and cross-posting to multiple newsgroups at once.
Additionally, you may not advertise in any way that effectively hides or misrepresents your own identity, your domain name, or your email address. You may use emails or other messages to customers to promote Veremark’ Services if the recipient is already a customer or subscriber of your services or website, and recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings and such emails or other messages are otherwise sent in compliance with the laws applicable to them.
8.3 In any direct marketing messages sent by the Affiliate, the Affiliate must identify itself and its contact details. Affiliate warrants that it complies with applicable data protection legislation including General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 when processing personal data. Furthermore, Affiliate warrants that it has informed data subjects about their personal data processing including possible disclosures and it has obtained data subjects’ consents to the processing of those personal data if required by applicable data protection legislation.
8.4 Also, you may only post to newsgroups to promote Veremark if the news group specifically welcomes commercial messages. You must always clearly represent yourself and your websites as independent from Veremark.
8.5 Affiliates that bid in their pay-per-click campaigns on keywords such as Veremark.com, Veremark, Veremark, Veremark coupons, Veremark Discounts, super metrics, www.Veremark, www.Veremark.com, Data Grabber and/or any misspellings or similar alterations of these – be it separately or in combination with any other keywords – and do not direct the traffic from such campaigns to their own website prior to redirecting it to our website, will be considered to be in material breach of the Agreement. In order to use any Veremark related keywords through paid advertising you need prior approval from one of Veremark Affiliate managers. Using “doorway pages” in such instances or overall as part of Veremark promotional activities is also strictly prohibited.

Further, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, in no event shall Veremark’ cumulative liability to you arising out of or related to this Agreement, whether based in contract, negligence, strict liability, tort or other legal or equitable theory, exceed the total Commission fees paid to You under this Agreement during the preceding three (3) months period.
11.1 Affiliate will defend, indemnify and hold harmless Veremark, and its subsidiaries and affiliates, and their directors, officers, employees, agents, shareholders, Affiliates, members, and other owners, against any and all claims, actions, demands, liabilities, losses, damages, judgments, settlements, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) (any or all of the foregoing hereinafter referred to as "Losses") insofar as such Losses (or actions in respect thereof) arise out of or are based on

For instance, whether or not the Affiliate targets any identified or identifiable natural persons as a part of its marketing efforts, or otherwise processes personal data for Affiliate marketing purposes, is solely determined by the Affiliate. As a consequence, the Affiliate serves as a data controller with regard to any personal data processed by it for the purpose of the conclusion and performance of this Agreement.
