You can review the most current version of the Terms of Service at any time at: https://surfshopbox.com/pages/ambassador-terms
Violation of any of the terms below will result in the termination of your Account and for forfeiture of any outstanding Ambassador rewards or commission payments earned during the violation. You agree to use the Ambassador Program at your own risk.
You must be a human. Accounts registered by "bots" or other automated methods are not permitted.
You must provide your legal full name, a valid email address, and any other information requested in order to complete the signup process.
You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and password. Surf Shop Box cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with this security obligation.
You are responsible for all Content posted and activity that occurs under your account.
One person or legal entity may not maintain more than one account.
You may not use the Ambassador Program for any illegal or unauthorized purpose. You must not, in the use of the Service, violate any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws).
Links/graphics on your site, in your emails, or other communications
Once you have signed up for the Ambassador Program, you are permitted and encouraged to place links, banners, or other graphics we provide on your site, in your emails, in social media posts or in other communications. We will provide you with guidelines, link styles, and graphical artwork to use in linking to Surf Shop Box. We may change the design of the artwork at any time without notice, but we won't change the dimensions of the images without proper notice.
To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and referral fee accrual, we will provide you with special link formats to be used in all links between your site and the Surf Shop Box. You must ensure that each of the links between your site and the Surf Shop Box properly utilizes such special link formats. Links to the Surf Shop Box placed on your site pursuant to this Agreement and which properly utilize such special link formats are referred to as "Special Links." You will earn referral fees only with respect to sales on a Surf Shop Box product occurring directly through Special Links; we will not be liable to you with respect to any failure by you or someone you refer to use Special Links or incorrectly type your Ambassador Code, including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction of amounts that would otherwise be paid to you pursuant to this Agreement.
Ambassador links should point to the page of the product being promoted.
Identifying yourself as a Surf Shop Box Ambassador
You may not issue any press release with respect to this Agreement or your participation in the Program; such action may result in your termination from the Program. In addition, you may not in any manner misrepresent or embellish the relationship between us and you, say you develop our products, say you are part of Surf Shop Box or express or imply any relationship or affiliation between us and you or any other person or entity except as expressly permitted by this Agreement (including by expressing or implying that we support, sponsor, endorse, or contribute money to any charity or other cause).
You may not purchase products through your Ambassador links for your own use. Such purchases may result (in our sole discretion) in the withholding of referral fees and/or the termination of this Agreement.
Rewards & Rewards Redemption
Each month, you will be provided with Ambassador Challenges and a set of rewards which will be earned if you complete these challenges before the expiration date. All Challenges, Rewards and Guidelines will be provided to you via email from Surf Shop Box. Challenges include tasks such as “Posting a photo of yourself wearing an item from your most recent box on Facebook or Instagram” or “Post an Unboxing Video on Facebook or Instagram”. Each challenge will have a set of guidelines which include a completion date, i.e.) On or before October 31, 2017, and guidelines such as “Tag @surfshopbox in the photo”. If these guidelines are not followed, Surf Shop Box will not be able to track your participation and therefore will not be responsible for issuing that reward. The Challenges and Rewards will be decided upon by Surf Shop Box at it’s sole discretion. These Challenges and Rewards may change from month to month.
You do not have to complete a challenge to remain as part of the Surf Shop Box Ambassador program, but you will not be able to earn the rewards for that given month.
When you complete the Ambassador Challenge(s) in a given month, you will earn the Rewards that were designated for that month. These rewards will be applied to your following box. For example, if the rewards for October included a bonus tee and a 10% discount, your November box would include the bonus tee and the 10% discount would be applied to the next box. If you cancel your Surf Shop Box subscription before the billing date of the next box, you will also forfeit the upcoming rewards that you have earned.
Rewards are only available to you as the ambassador and are non-transferrable to any other accounts.
Payment for Referral Commission
As long as you are a current Ambassador earning are over $25, you'll be paid each month. If you haven't earned $25 since your last payment, we'll pay you the following month after you've crossed the threshold.
