DETAILED USER EXAMPLE
Here is a detailed example of the lifecycle of Speedwrite subscriber referred by you, an affiliate.
The lifecycle starts by an internet user clicking your affiliate link to the Speedwrite website.
The visitor's browser is then tagged with a 30-day cookie. Please note this cookie works on a "last click" attribution model. (Think of it this way: the "last click" wins.) This is similar to how most other affiliate programs work, for example, Amazon Associates, and ShareASale.
The visitor does not have to be logged into Speedwrite when he/she visits our website, however, to be attributed to you, the visitor must either make a new Speedwrite account, or log into an existing Speedwrite account, within 30 days of his/her first visit. At this time, if this Speedwrite account does not already have a paid subscription, the user's account will be tagged with your affiliate code.
After the user has been tagged with your affiliate code, if the user then signs up for a paid subscription within 30 days, the subscription will be credited to you.
You will receive a 30% revenue share for up to 12 (twelve) months, for any payments made by this user, for this subscription. Similar to Amazon Associates, so as to protect against chargebacks and other kinds of fraud, affiliate payments are delayed until the 2nd (second) month following the subscription.
Affiliate payments are made during the first week of each month, for all commissions generated two months before. Example: If a user signs up with your affiliate code on April 15th, then you will receive your first payment for this subscription on or before June 7th.
Payments are made (subject to the timing described above), when your total commissions exceed $50 (fifty US dollars).
Payments are made via PayPal. you will be asked to provide a PayPal address when you sign up for the program.

However, we reserve the right to reverse orders due to order cancellations, duplicate tracking, returns, disputed charges, and program violations as outlined in these terms and conditions.
Additionally, if we ask you for clarification or more information on any orders or clicks that we suspect may be in violation of our terms and conditions, we expect that you will respond in a timely and honest manner. Below are violations of our communications policy.
🚫 You are not forthcoming or intentionally vague.
🚫 You are not responsive within a reasonable time period and after multiple attempts to contact with information listed in your network profile.
