Links/graphics on your site, in your emails, or other communications
Once you have signed up for the Fundraising Program, you will be assigned a unique Fundraising Code. You are permitted to place links, banners, or other graphics we provide with your Fundraising Code on your site, in your emails, or in other communications. We will provide you with guidelines, link styles, and graphical artwork to use in linking to WA Cellars. 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 WA Cellars. You must ensure that each of the links between your site and the WA Cellars properly utilizes such special link formats. Links to the WA Cellars 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 WA Cellars 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 Fundraising 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.
Fundraising links should point to the page of the product being promoted.
Fundraising donations and payment
For a Product sale to be eligible to earn a fundraising donation, the customer must click-through a Special Link from your site, email, or other communications to https://wacellars.com.au and complete an order for a product during that session.
We will only pay a donation on links that are automatically tracked and reported by our systems. We will not pay the donation if someone says they purchased or someone says they entered a referral code if it was not tracked by our system. We can only pay donations on orders generated through properly formatted special links that were automatically tracked by our systems.
We reserve the right to disqualify donations earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods.
Identifying yourself as a WA Cellars Fundraising Affiliate
You may not issue any press release with respect to this Agreement or your participation in the WA Cellars Affiliate Program without the prior written consent from the WA Cellars fundraising co-ordinator; 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 WA Cellars 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.
Donation Payment schedule
You must request a pay out of the donations applicable through the WA Cellars authorised fundraising co-ordinator via email. That donation will be made to the nominated account of the Not for Profit organisation that you provided on the application form. We will not pay any donations into a personal bank account. The payment of the donations applicable from WA Cellars will occur within 5 business days from the written email request.
Customers who buy products through this Program will be deemed to be our customers. Accordingly, all of our rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning liquor licensing laws, responsible service of alcohol guidelines/policies, customer orders, customer service, and product sales will apply to those customers.
We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. For example, we will determine the prices to be charged for products sold under this Program in accordance with our own pricing policies. Product prices and availability may vary from time to time. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to present accurate information, but we cannot guarantee the availability or price of any particular product.
You will be solely responsible for;
– Ensuring the display of Special Links on your fundraising affiliate page does not violate any agreement between you and any third party (including without limitation any restrictions or requirements placed on you by a third party that hosts your site)
– The accuracy, truth, and appropriateness of materials posted on your fundraising affiliate page (including, among other things, all Product-related materials and any information you include within or associate with Special Links)
– Ensuring that materials posted on your fundraising affiliate page do not violate or infringe upon the rights of any third party (including, for example, copyrights, trademarks, privacy, or other personal or proprietary rights)

Compliance with Laws
As a condition to your participation in the Program, you agree that while you are a Program participant you will comply with all laws, ordinances, rules, regulations, orders, licenses, permits, judgments, decisions or other requirements of any governmental authority that has jurisdiction over you, whether those laws, etc. are now in effect or later come into effect during the time you are a Program participant. Without limiting the foregoing obligation, you agree that as a condition of your participation in the Program you will comply with all applicable laws (federal, state or otherwise) that govern marketing email, including without limitation, all anti-spam laws.
Term of the Agreement and Program
The term of this Agreement will begin upon our acceptance of your Program application and will end when terminated by either party.

WA Cellars, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Program, or any other WA Cellars service, for any reason at any time.
