Operating Agreement

This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to an individual's or entity's participation in the Reviewer Program (the "Program").

Ownership of Reviews
You agree to submit to only reviews that you have written or have been asked to submit by the author. You agree not to submit any reviews which, for any reason, could not legally be posted on the web site. Your submission of a review grants the Program permission to publish the review on the web site. We reserve the right to reject any review that we deem to be unsuitable.

Commission Credits will distribute one-third of the commissions it receives from its affiliates to the reviewers. This includes commissions from the sale of items that are not specifically reviewed on our site (more than half of our affiliates sales are from books, videos etc. that have not yet been reviewed on our site!). However, any advertising fees we collect will not be subject to this distribution. The share distributed to each reviewer will be based on the number of reviews he/she has written; if a reviewer has written 10% of the total reviews, that reviewer will receive 10% of the distributed amount.

Commission Schedule
The amount of commission any reviewer receives is affected by the commission that collects. The amount collects is based on the commission schedule of each affiliate. These schedules are controlled solely by the affiliates and are subject to change without notice. All of the commission information is summarized in the table below. The share distributed to each reviewer will be based on the number of reviews he/she has written; if a reviewer has written 10% of the total reviews, that reviewer will receive 10% of the distributed amount.

Affiliate Commission Comments 5%-20% Bargain books earn the 20% rate 5% Some book purchases can earn 15% 5% 7% 5% -- $10 if a new customer; otherwise 0 15%  

Note that for to earn a commission from one of our affiliates a reader must 1) follow a link on our site directly to the affiliate site (via a hyperlink, logo, or search box), 2) purchase the product without first leaving the site and then 3) accept delivery of the product.

Commission Payments
We will pay you commission fees on a quarterly basis. Approximately 45 days following the end of each calendar quarter, we will send you a check for the commission fees earned during that quarter, less any taxes that we are required by law to withhold. However, if the commission fees payable to you for any calendar quarter are less than $30.00, we will carry-over the referral fees until the total amount at the end of the quarter reaches at least $30.00.

Terms of the Agreement
The term of this Agreement will begin upon our acceptance of your application and will end when terminated by either party. Either you or we may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause, by giving the other party notice of termination. However, because the publishing of reviews on our site is a time-intensive process, we will not remove reviews previously posted. Should terminate your account or terminate business, we will pay you any existing commission fees as long as your account contains a minimum of $10.

We may modify any of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, at any time and in our sole discretion, by posting or emailing a change notice or posting a new agreement on our site. Modifications may include, for example, the percentage of commissions allocated to you, the scope of what products are subject to earn commissions, payment procedures, and Program rules. If any modification is unacceptable to you, your only recourse is to terminate this agreement. Your continued participation following our posting of a change will constitute acceptance of the change.

Relationship of Parties
You and we are independent contractors and nothing in this Agreement will create any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative, or employment relationship between the parties. You will have no authority to make or accept any offers or representations on our behalf. You will not make any statement, whether on your site or otherwise, that reasonably would contradict anything in this Section.

Limitation of Liability
We will not be liable for any damages (loss of revenue, profits, or data) arising in connection with this Agreement or the Program. Further, our aggregate liability arising with respect to this Agreement and the Program will not exceed the total referral fees paid or payable to you under this Agreement.

We make no express or implied warranties or representations with respect to the Program or any products recommended through the Program. In addition, we make no representation that the operation of our site will be uninterrupted or error-free, and we will not be liable for the consequences of any interruptions or errors.
