These terms and conditions (the "Affiliate Program Terms") shall govern your rights and obligations in relation to your participation in the Affiliate Program in addition to Apify General Terms and Conditions (the "General Terms").

Terms starting with a capital letter used in these Affiliate Program Terms have the meaning defined either here or in the General Terms. Provisions of the General Terms regarding liability, indemnity, governing law and choice of jurisdiction are incorporated herein by reference.

1. Joining the Affiliate Program

1.1. You may join the Affiliate Program by creating an account on Apify's FirstPromoter portal ("FirstPromoter"). By ticking the box "I agree to the Apify Affiliate Program terms", you claim that you are over 18 years old and agree to adhere to these Affiliate Program Terms, in addition to the General Terms. If you act on behalf of a company when accepting these Affiliate Program Terms, you also hereby declare to be authorized to perform such legal actions on behalf of the company (herein the term "you" shall mean the relevant company).

2. Apify's obligations

2.1. Upon joining the Affiliate Program, Apify will make available to you your unique referral link (the "Referral Link") and promotional materials, which you may use in promoting Apify's services.

2.2. Apify shall pay to the Affiliate Partner a commission (the "Commission") for referred users' use of the Platform according to the provisions below.

3. Referred Customers

3.1. "Referred Customer" is a natural person or a company who subscribed to Apify's Platform using the Referral Link in compliance with these Affiliate Program Terms.

3.2. Tracking of the potential Referred Customer is performed by cookies lasting 45 days. If the cookies expire or are deleted, a customer may not be recognised as a Referred Customer.

3.3. If the Affiliate Partner identifies any customer that, in their opinion, shall be considered Referred Customer but has not been recognised by the tracking, the Affiliate Partner may report this information to Apify together with sufficient evidence. Apify shall in its discretion in good faith consider the Affiliate Partner's report and evidence, and decide whether or not such a customer shall be deemed Referred Customer.

3.4. In case of any uncertain or suspicious circumstances, Apify shall have the right to ultimately decide whether a customer is to be deemed Referred Customer or not, in its sole discretion.

4. Commission

4.1. Unless agreed otherwise, the Commission shall be computed as 20% of all payments made by each Referred Customer to Apify in the first 3 months from the date when that Referred Customer started paying for Services (as defined in the General Terms) and then increased to 30% for all payments made by each Referred Customer to Apify, up to 2,500 USD per Referred Customer.

5. Payment terms

5.1. Apify shall pay the earned Commission to the Affiliate Partner monthly, within 10 business days after the end of each calendar month, based on an invoice that shall be issued to Apify. The minimum Commission payable is 49 USD. Commission in any given calendar month lower than 49 USD will be rolled over to the following month.

5.2. The Commission may be paid either via PayPal or bank transfer. The Affiliate Partner shall specify the chosen payment method.

5.3. Invoices are generated automatically through FirstPromoter by Apify. The Affiliate Partner shall provide and maintain up-to-date information required for this purpose in the portal. Apify may request that the Affiliate Partner issues an invoice using a different method, if the method through FirstPromoter portal is not available (e.g. due to missing Affiliate Partner's personal information).
