When you signup to our affiliate program, we receive some personally identifiable information about you such as your email address, first name and last name. This is the information which you add in the signup form for joining our affiliate program.
So, what we do with your information?
Simply put, we do not share or rent your personal information to third parties for spamming you. However, we may share your personal information with third parties when we use their services. This includes PayPal, MailChimp and Klaviyo. MailChimp and Klaviyo are email services. We may store your email address in our emails list and can send you periodic emails about our products, new releases, promotions and anything else that can help you with your affiliate marketing. You can unsubscribe from these emails anytime.
Also please note that, when you signup to our affiliate program, you are also registered as an affiliate in the database of Affilo. Affilo.io is the software which we use to track your affiliate orders and pay commissions. The team at Affilo.io may also send you periodic emails which can help you do affiliate marketing more efficiently. You can unsubscribe from these emails anytime.
These Terms and Conditions (the "Affiliate Agreement") govern the Affiliate Program that is made available by GIST: Yarn & Fiber "we" or "us").

2. Referral Tracking
GIST: Yarn & Fiber will provide the Affiliate (you) with specific Referral Links to link products, pages and other marketing content to GIST: Yarn & Fiber. Affilo.io (which is a referral tracking software) will track users who have visited these Referral Links using cookies which expire after 7 days. Only users who make a purchase while the cookie is active will be considered referrals of the Affiliate and recorded as such in the Affiliate Dashboard.
The Affiliate is not authorized to modify or alter the Referral Links or the cookies in any way. Affilo.io and GIST: Yarn & Fiber is not responsible for any tracking or reporting errors that may result from any modifications to the Referral Link or the cookies.
3. Affiliate Fees and Payouts
We payout to our Affiliates on the 30th day of every calendar month.

The payment of the order is paid in full by the referred customer.
The referral's account remains active and in good standing.
The referral's account has not had any of its payments refunded, charged back or otherwise reversed.
The Affiliate is entitled to receive a one-time payment of 5% for each active Eligible Referral for a customer purchase that is recorded in the Affiliate Dashboard. All eligible referrals are payed out collectively on the 30th of every calendar month.
All Affiliate Fee payments will be payable in USD only. Payment will be made through PayPal to the email address specified by the Affiliate in the Affiliate Dashboard. The Affiliate is responsible for providing GIST: Yarn & Fiber with the full and accurate details that are required to remit the Affiliate Commission, and is solely responsible for any delays in payment resulting from its failure to do so.
Referrals will become void, and any unpaid Affiliate Commissions will be forfeited, after 12 calendar months.
