In order to permit accurate tracking, reporting, and Commission Fee (as defined below) accrual, MGID will provide you with a special unique link or some banner tools (collectively the "Referral Link") which must be used in all links between your Website and this Referral Program. Subject to these Terms and Conditions, when (and if) such Referred Client, referred by you via the Referral Link, generates revenues to MGID, you, the participant are eligible for a Commission Fee for such qualifying revenues as described in Section 3 (Commission Fees) below. All Referred Clients must be approved by us at our sole discretion and accept our standard terms of service It is your sole responsibility to ensure that the unique Referral Links are integrated properly on your website(s).
Subject to compliance with the Terms and Conditions, we will pay you a commission fee (the "Commission Fee") on each Qualifying Referred Client (as defined below). For purposes of this Referral Program, "Qualifying Referred Client" means a first-time publisher (meaning publishers who have never registered with MGID, nor were active leads, or have not interacted with our marketing, support or sales teams in the past 6 months prior to their registration as a consequence of this Referral Program), which is not affiliated in any manner to you, and which were referred to MGID via the Referral Link.
The Commission Fee shall be 5% of the amounts paid to Qualifying Referred Clients by MGID ("Qualifying Referred Client Earnings") during the whole campaign period from the date of referral (the "Commission Fee", and "Referral Period"). If Qualifying Referred Clients' Earnings for which a Commission Fee is paid to you is later refunded, deemed fraudulent or charged back, the relevant Commission Fee will be deducted from the next payment sent to you following such event; if such future payment isn't due, you hereby consent to refund such amount to us immediately upon our request.
