Affiliate Terms & Conditions
Thank you for your interest in becoming an Affiliate. Please read these Affiliate Terms & Conditions carefully. We appreciate you as our Affiliate, and we want you to succeed in your promotions. We also want to serve you and our clients with 100% integrity and compliance with the law. As an Affiliate, we expect you to conduct yourself with professionalism and care as set forth in these Affiliate Terms & Conditions.
The purpose of these Affiliate Terms & Conditions is to set forth the details about our Affiliate relationship so that you can be clear at the outset as to how our communication and relationship works.
By becoming an Affiliate of Integrative Women’s Health Institute (“IWHI”) of JDRHC, LLC, you agree to abide by these Affiliate Terms & Conditions, as well as the general Terms & Conditions that appear on our website.
For purposes of these Affiliate Terms & Conditions, these terms are defined as follows:
- “Program” is defined as any online program of the Integrative Women’s Health Institute (“IWHI”) for which an Affiliate Commission is offered.
- “Enrollee” is any person who signs up as an enrollee in the Program.
- “Affiliate Link” means a unique URL designated by us for you which allows us to identify Enrollees to the Program as originating from you.
- “Commission” is the amount of money that will be paid by us to you based on a percentage of the total amount of the sales that originate through your unique Affiliate Link, based on the information below.
- “Confidential Information” shall include any information, whether oral, written or observed, regarding the terms of this Agreement or content of the Program.
1. Affiliate Link
You are participating as an Affiliate by invitation only. All Affiliate designations are subject to approval by us in our sole discretion.
Once you have been selected to be an Affiliate, you will be issued a unique “Affiliate Link”, or unique URL, which allows us to identify Enrollees as originating from you. These Enrollees are tracked with this unique URL and sales are recorded accordingly.
To receive Commissions, you must use the provided unique Affiliate Link. You are solely responsible for insuring that the Affiliate Link is set up properly to qualify for Commissions.
2. Affiliate Commissions and Payment
Affiliate Commission Amount. We will pay you a Commission of 10% for each enrollment in the Program for each Enrollee who signs up using your unique Affiliate Link. Although the Affiliate Program is not limited to the United States, all payments will be made in U.S. dollars.
Enrollees to Whom Commission Applies. This Commission applies to any Enrollee in the Program (including you) who signs up using your unique Affiliate Link as a result of your own e-mail, website and/or social media marketing promotions, or through other means of communication by you, provided that the Enrollee signs up for the Program through your unique Affiliate Link. You may earn a Commission on your own enrollment in the Program. If an Enrollee has signed up for marketing promotions and/or a Program through multiple Affiliate links, credit will be given the Affiliate whose link was used first, rather than last.
Payment Lapse. For a sale to generate a Commission to you, the Enrollee must remit payment and have their enrollment in the Program paid, whether in full or by installment. The first Affiliate Commission will not be made until after the 14-day refund period
Payment of Commission. The Commission shall be paid by us to you via Paypal or by check. We reserve the right to make payments using other standard payment formats if necessary, at our discretion. You are authorizing us to make such payments to you. All Commissions earned will be paid on a quarterly basis on or around the 15th of the month in April, July, October and January, once at least $100 in Affiliate Commissions has been earned. Affiliate Commissions subsequently will be made quarterly in minimum amounts of $100, as they are earned.
- For Enrollees who pay in full, Affiliate will receive his/her Commission on a quarterly basis once at least $100 of Commission has been earned.
- For Enrollees who pay in installment payments, Affiliate will receive his/her Commission on a quarterly basis once at least $100 of Commission has been earned. Additionally, Affiliate Commissions earned on installment payments by Enrollees will not be made until after the Company has first recouped the interest payments for the installment plan, which amounts vary by Program.
Last Date to Earn a Commission. The last date by which an Enrollee may purchase the Program and thus the Affiliate will be eligible to receive a Commission is the date the enrollment closes, as determined by us, regardless of whether the Enrollee is paying in full or in installments.
3. Intellectual Property Rights
We reserve all rights in and to our Program name and all related trademarks, trade names, logos, taglines, slogans, images and similar identifying marks related to the Program and Integrative Women’s Health Institute (“IWHI”) of JDRHC, LLC (collectively, the “Trademarks”).
We grant you a non-exclusive right to display the Trademarks on your website, e-mail and social media communications in connection with the unique Affiliate Link and promotion of the Program, because we want you to use them in promoting the Program, of course.
You understand that you may not change the proportion, color or font of the Trademarks, or otherwise alter the Trademarks because that would be changing the branded look of the Program.

You further agree to take all actions necessary to effect such assignment. Whenever you stop being an Affiliate, you must cease to use the Trademarks.
You agree not to frame the your website to look like our website or to utilize our branding or Trademarks in any way that would confuse customers or the general public as to who is hosting or promoting the Program.
You agree to not purchase or register any keywords, search terms or other identifiers related to our Trademarks or the trade or service marks or names of our primary competitors, including misspellings or variations thereof for use in any search engine, portal, sponsored advertising service or other search or referral service.
You agree to not purchase or register any domains or other identifiers that include variations on our Trademarks or names intended to approximate misspellings or typographical mistakes of same or which otherwise would constitute typo or domain squatting, including variations thereof for use in any search engine, portal, sponsored advertising service or other search or referral service unless otherwise agreed to by us.
4. Anti-SPAM (UCE)
You agree to not send unsolicited mail or SPAM mail to promote the Program or any of our products or services.

We reserve the right to cancel your participation, withhold or cancel your Affiliate Commissions, or take any other action at our sole discretion should you conduct any of the behavior above or fail to operate with integrity or within the guidelines of the FTC.

All Confidential Information shall remain the exclusive property of us. You shall hold all Confidential Information in trust and confidence for us and shall not disclose such Confidential Information or use it for any purpose other than as required by these Affiliate Terms & Conditions.

Even after termination, all of the terms of these Affiliate Terms & Conditions will still apply indefinitely.
We reserve the right to terminate you as an Affiliate if: (1) you violate any of the terms of these Affiliate Terms & Conditions, (2) if you are doing something unethical, even if it wasn’t explicitly disallowed by these Affiliate Terms & Conditions.
If we exercise our right to terminate your Affiliate relationship with us, we reserve the right to not pay any Commission earned that has not previously been paid to you.
Within 48 hours after termination, whether by you or us, you must remove all references to the Affiliate Link from your website, marketing materials and email lists.
8. Disclaimer & Release of Claims
We will make every reasonable effort to track and pay Commissions for all sales that apply to you. However, we are not responsible for technical problems, acts by third parties, or other events outside our reasonable control which may temporarily disrupt or diminish this service. You understand that Affiliate tracking can never be 100% accurate and tracking of your sales depends on several factors. Therefore, we cannot guarantee 100% tracking for situations that may happen beyond our control.
We shall not be held liable for any indirect, incidental, special, equitable or consequential damages or any loss of revenue or profits by you arising under or with respect to serving an Affiliate, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
In no event shall we be liable to any party for costs of procurement of substitute goods, lost profits or any other special, consequential, incidental, equitable, or indirect damages, losses, costs or expenses of any kind, however caused, and whether based in contract, tort (including negligence), or any other theory of liability regardless of whether we have been advised of the possibility of such damages, losses, costs or expenses.
WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, AND ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE WITH RESPECT TO THIS AFFILIATE AGREEMENT.
We will not be held responsible in any way for the information that you request or receive through our Affiliate program. You fully and completely releases us and any other of our staff from any and all liability, damages, causes of action, allegations, suits, sums of money, claims and demands whatsoever, in law or equity, that you ever had, now have or will have in the future against us and/or our staff, arising from your participation in the Program, unless arising from the gross negligence on our part.
By serving as an Affiliate, you also consent to all of the terms as stated in our general Terms & Conditions found on our website.
9. Independent Businesses
The Affiliate relationship between you and us is as independent businesses in a contractual relationship, and nothing in these Affiliate Terms & Conditions creates any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative or employment relationship between you and us. Each of our respective businesses is conducted at our own initiative, responsibility and expense, and each shall have no authority to incur any obligations on behalf of the other, except as otherwise provided in these Affiliate Terms & Conditions.
The term “Affiliate” shall not be interpreted as a legal partner or affiliate, but rather, simply as an independent business doing marketing for us pursuant to these Affiliate Terms & Conditions. You understand that you are NOT an employee of us, and therefore, you are responsible for your own local, state, province and/or country taxes.
You understand that you do not have authority to make or accept any offers or make any representations on behalf of us. You agree that you will not misrepresent our Program, products or services.
10. Other Important Terms
Entire Agreement, Assignment and Waiver: These Affiliate Terms & Conditions contain our entire agreement. These Affiliate Terms & Conditions may be modified or amended at any time by us. You may not assign your rights or obligations to any party. In the event that any part of these Affiliate Terms & Conditions are deemed unenforceable, the remaining portions shall be severed and remain in full force. The failure to enforce any provision of these Affiliate Terms & Conditions shall not be construed as a waiver or limitation of the right to later enforce and compel strict compliance with every part of these Affiliate Terms & Conditions.
Governing Law: This Agreement shall be construed according to the laws of the State of Texas and Harris County, Texas.
Dispute Resolution: It is hoped that should we ever have any differences, we could be able to work them out through a phone conversation or e-mail correspondence. However, should a dispute ever arise between us, we agree now that we will submit to binding arbitration before a single arbitrator, selected jointly, in accordance with the American Arbitration Association Rules. Any judgment on an arbitrator’s award, if made, is binding and may be entered into any court having the appropriate jurisdiction. Prior to seeking arbitration, you must submit your complaint to me via e-mail. You understand and agree now that the only remedy that can be awarded to you through arbitration is a full refund of your Payment made to date. No award of consequential or of any other type of damages may be granted to you. By signing this Agreement you are agreeing to a modification of the statute of limitations such that any arbitration must be commenced within one (1) year of the date of the act, omission, or other conduct complained of as submitted by you in e-mail, or shall otherwise be forfeited forever. You also agree that should arbitration take place, it will be held in Harris County, Texas, and the prevailing party shall be entitled to all reasonable attorney’s fees and costs necessary to enforce the Agreement.
Non-Disparagement: In the event of a dispute between us, you agree to not engage in any conduct or communications, public or private, designed to disparage the Program, Integrative Women’s Health Institute (“IWHI”) of JDRHC, LLC, or any of the Program enrollees. Where requested by law or arbitration, of course, you are not prohibited from sharing your thoughts and opinions as a part of the legal process.
By agreeing to become an Affiliate you, acknowledge that you have read, understand, agree to and accept all of the terms of these Affiliate Terms & Conditions.
