Affiliate Agreement

Creative Fires Studio Inc. Affiliate Agreement

This agreement is designed with you in mind and to protect Creative Fires Studio, Inc. and our customers.

Affiliate Registration

We review and moderate all affiliate registrations, and we appreciate your accurate and honest information. However, please note that the review process may take a few days – we know you are eager to join our team of affiliates, and we appreciate your patience!

If you're approved, awesome! We'll give you a unique affiliate ID that you can use to promote Creative Fires Studio, Inc.'s digital products via share links. Check out your private Affiliate Area reports!

Commissions and payouts

You'll earn a commission when a customer purchases an included digital product from Creative Fires Studio, Inc. using your referral link or designates you as their referrer at the time of purchase. The commission percentage may vary by product and is subject to change at any time.

We pay affiliate commissions in USD directly to your bank account or debit card in the first week of every month. As we have a 14-day money-back guarantee, we only pay commissions older than fourteen days from the delivery of the product. The minimum payout balance is $50.00. And there's no maximum payout balance, so don't hesitate to promote us!

To receive a payout for your referrals, you must register your PayPal email address with our payouts service.

We do not allow referrals on your own purchases. Additionally, we do not offer recurring referrals.

Here are the details of our program in summary:

You'll receive a commission for every new sale you refer

Minimum payout balance of $50.00, and no maximum payout (we pay in USD)

We pay commissions older than fourteen days within the first week of each month.

We make payouts to your PayPal account.

We do not allow referrals on your own purchases (this includes using a different email address).

Referral cookie lifetime

When a potential customer clicks on your referral link, a cookie is stored in their browser to track your referral. The cookie is then stored for a generous 30 days to give your referred customers time to decide if they wish to purchase from Creative Fires Studio, Inc., or ask us any pre-sale questions they may have.

We can't award a referral if:

  • The customer uses a different browser to purchase than the one they initially used to visit our site (because the cookie does not exist in that browser)
  • The customer purchases after 30 days (because the cookie will expire).
  • We refunded the purchase.
  • If a purchase is refunded, we won't pay a commission for that referral.

 

We will pay a commission on all referrals older than fourteen days from the purchase date, in good standing (i.e., we haven't refunded the purchase.) 

We reserve the right to reject affiliate commissions for any reason. Commission rejections may occur for the following reasons:

  • We refunded the sale that the referral was based on.
  • The referral was generated in violation of our promotional policies (see below) or violated the spirit of the Affiliate Agreement.

Affiliate news and updates

By becoming an affiliate, you agree to receive emails from Creative Fires Studio, Inc. These emails will be sent to affiliates only, on an ad-hoc basis, and may include important information regarding the Creative Fires Studio, Inc. affiliate program. 

These emails will also provide you with relevant news and updates to help you effectively promote Creative Fires Studio, Inc.. As an affiliate, you may be privy to embargoed or time-sensitive information in these emails (this information may only be promoted after an embargo is lifted). And we won't spam you, ever – promise!

Affiliate application rejection

We reserve the right to reject affiliate applications for any reason. We also reserve the right to choose whether we explain or reason for affiliate application rejection. Below are just a few reasons why an application may be rejected (this is not an exhaustive list):

  • Affiliate applications for websites that sell, advertise or engage in pornography, phishing scams, spamming, illegal business practices or that include any material infringing on National or International Copyright will be rejected.
  • Affiliate applications for websites that we do not believe are aligned with our industry or business may be rejected.
  • Affiliate applicants with websites that re-sell any of our products will be rejected.
  • Websites considered inappropriate by Creative Fires Studio, Inc. will be rejected.

Inappropriate websites:

The following types of sites are not permitted to become an affiliate: adult sites, sites that display adult material or banners, sites that promote violence, hatred, or bigotry, sites that promote or engage in illegal activity, including (but not limited to), hacking, cracking, nulled, and warez sites. Affiliate applications for inappropriate websites will be rejected, and we reserve the right to choose whether or not to provide a rejection reason.

Questions regarding your application

When you apply to become an affiliate, we may email you at the email address you have supplied with some questions regarding your application. We may do this because:

We didn't understand something in your application, or,

We want to learn more about how you will promote Creative Fires Studio, Inc. and need a little more detail.

If we reach out to you and haven't heard back within seven days, your application may be rejected. If your initial application is rejected, you are welcome to reapply to become an affiliate and provide us with more detail for reconsideration.

Dormant affiliate accounts

Please don't leave us! We encourage our affiliates to actively promote Creative Fires Studio, Inc. to keep earning referrals. If we can help you develop ideas on how to promote Creative Fires Studio, Inc., please let us know – we're here for you! An affiliate account is considered dormant if no visits have been generated after a 6-month period. A dormant affiliate account may be temporarily deactivated if no visits have been generated after six months. Before deactivation, we will attempt to contact you to determine whether you want to retain your affiliate account.

Prohibited promotional methods

We love and back our programs 100%, and we are cautious with how they are promoted, so we want affiliates who are 100% behind us too! The prohibited promotional methods listed below aren't meant to scare you off – they're here to protect you, us, and our customers from any freaky or fraudulent activity, which is something we take pretty seriously. We know you'll understand. But here they are in writing just in case you're not sure what is and what isn't allowed.

Creative Fires Studio, Inc. may not be promoted on coupon sites

Paid advertising using your affiliate link is prohibited

Buying ads through services like Google AdWords, social ads, or retargeting ads and using our brand keywords and your affiliate link will result in affiliate account deactivation.

Pretending to actually be Creative Fires Studio, Inc. is prohibited

Again, false promotion to customers that you are endorsed or operated by Creative Fires Studio, Inc. is prohibited (and super uncool).
