This Agreement shall not be interpreted or construed to create an association, agency, joint venture or partnership between the Parties or to impose any liability attributable to such a relationship upon either Party.
3. TERM AND TERMINATION. This Agreement between You and Kajabi shall begin upon Your acceptance of its terms and shall continue thereafter until terminated by either You or Kajabi as follows:
Either you or Kajabi, or any successor or assign of Kajabi, in its sole and absolute discretion, may also cancel Your Agreement at any time with or without cause or for any reason in either Party’s sole discretion. Kajabi reserves the right to cancel or modify this Partner Program Agreement in its entirety, including all compensation, at any time.

COMMISSIONS. Upon acceptance into the Partner Program, You will be assigned one or more unique Partner URLs, which You will use to advertise Kajabi. When another person (a “Prospect”) clicks through that URL, a cookie (or similar tracking technology (hereinafter “Cookie”)) will be set in the Prospect’s browser. When the Prospect creates a Kajabi account by using Your Partner URL, the Cookie on the Prospect’s browser, corresponding to Your unique URL, registers a “Sale,” and each such account is a “Sold Account.” In the event that a Prospect has multiple Partner Cookies, the most recently-acquired Cookie will determine which Partner is credited with a Sale. You will be paid a commission for each Sold Account that generates a payment to Kajabi monthly or annually. The Commission amount is 30% of all fees received by Kajabi for a Sold Account. Commission payments will be made to You on or before sixty (60) days following Kajabi’ receipt of payment for a Sold Account, subject to the other terms set forth herein.
BONUSES. For each level that a partner obtains, Kajabi may, in its sole discretion, also reward you based on status. The actual bonuses rewarded, and the value thereof, shall change from time to time as Kajabi may choose in its sole discretion. In this regard, Kajabi shall also have the right to take away any bonus or reward at any time, for any reason, or to terminate the bonus program in its entirety. Any such change shall not affect your entitlement to Commissions already earned.
MINIMUM COMMISSION AND BONUS PAYMENT. Your combined commission and bonus amount must equal or exceed one hundred ($100) before You receive a payment from Kajabi. If Your combined commissions and bonuses for a given month are less than $100, Your commissions and bonuses will be held until Your combined commissions and bonuses equals or exceeds $100.
COMMISSION AND BONUSES PAID FOLLOWING LEGITIMATE SALE. Commissions and Bonuses are paid only for transactions that actually occur between Kajabi and a Sale. If the transaction does not actually occur, or if payment from a Sale is not actually received by Kajabi, You will not paid a Commission or Bonus on the transaction. If payment for a Sold Account later results in a refund or charge-back, and if a commission or bonus was paid to You for that Sold Account payment, then the commission or bonus will be deducted from Your future commissions. If Kajabi determines, in its reasonable discretion, that any Sale was procured fraudulently or as a result of any violation of this Agreement, no Commission or Bonus will be paid for such Sale. If any Commissions or Bonuses are paid for a Sale that was produced fraudulently or as a result of any violation of this Agreement, and the fraud or violation is discovered by Kajabi after payment, such payment amounts shall be deducted from Your future commissions and bonuses.
TAXES. You hereby warrant to Company that You are engaged in an independent business enterprise, and that You have complied with all business requirements necessary to operate Contractor’s business, if any, such as licensing, tax and other business operation requirements. You shall be solely and entirely responsible for Your own acts and omissions relative to the performance of services under this Agreement, and You shall determine the manner and method of performing such services, and shall set Your own hours in which to perform and complete such services. The parties hereto understand and agree that You are free to perform work in any capacity for other clients of You in Your sole discretion as You see fit, except as may otherwise be prohibited by the non-solicitation and/or confidentiality provisions set forth below.
Before You can be paid any Commission or Bonuses, You must provide Kajabi a completed W-8 or W-9, as instructed by Kajabi.
