Thanks for referring people to purchase our products. The products are sold by Family Rations, LLC, located San Diego, California. By being an Affiliate, you are agreeing to these terms. Please read them carefully.

"Product" refers to the Family Rations product, which is more fully described at https://familyrations.com. "Buyer" means someone (an individual or organization) who purchases the Product.
- Payments and Commissions
Family Rations pays Affiliates 10% commission of the purchase price of purchases made through an Affiliate Link.
Family Rations will pay Affiliates 10% commission for each sale of the Product which is identified by a visitor from the Affiliate’s web site using their unique Affiliate Link. Family Rations does not pay commissions on tax or shipping amounts.
Affiliate Commissions will be paid by Paypal to an email specified by Affiliate for this purpose, or by company check or Visa rewards card. Payments will be mailed to the address indicated on the Affiliate signup form, or as otherwise directed in writing. Family Rations reserves the right to pay commissions 45 days out to allow for refunds and chargebacks. (For instance, commissions for March should be paid around the 15th of May or later.) Family Rations reserves the right to delay paying Commissions until the balance owed Affiliate reaches $100.00. Although the Affiliate Program is not limited to the United States, all payments will be made in U.S. dollars.
Affiliates who reside in the US must provide a tax identification number (such as EIN or SSN) before issuance of payment. Family Rations will report to the IRS any payments that equal or exceed $600.00 on a calendar year.
If you refer someone to Family Rations and the person you refer cancels their purchase, the related Commission will be “clawed back” in case the customer receives a refund for the cancellation.
Affiliates cannot refer themselves or their spouse/civil union partner to qualify for commissions. No exceptions will be made.
All Affiliate applications are subject to approval by Family Rations.

Family Rations, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Affiliate program, or any other Family Rations service, for any reason at any time. Such termination will result in the deactivation or deletion of your Affiliate Account, and the forfeiture and relinquishment of all potential or accrued referral fees in your Account if they were earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods.

- Independent Businesses
As an Affiliate, you are not an employee of Family Rations, you’re an independent contractor. You have to take care of paying any applicable taxes on income you earn from Affiliate Commissions. As an independent contractor, you cannot make decisions for Family Rations.
The relationship between Family Rations and Affiliate established by this Agreement is that of independent businesses in a contract, and nothing in this Agreement creates any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative or employment relationship between Affiliate and Family Rations. Family Rations and Affiliate shall each conduct its respective business at its own initiative, responsibility and expense, and shall have no authority to incur any obligations on behalf of the other, except as otherwise provided herein.
The term "Affiliate" shall not be interpreted as a legal partner or affiliate, simply as an independent business doing marketing for Family Rations under this agreement. Affiliates are NOT employees of Family Rations, and are responsible for their own local, state, or country taxes. Affiliate understands that Affiliate does not have authority to make or accept any offers or make any representations on behalf of Family Rations. Affiliate shall not misrepresent Family Rations products or services.
- Limitation of Liability
Our liability is limited to the total value of Commissions. We do our best to track and pay Affiliates accurately and fairly, but we can’t guarantee 100% accuracy. We recommend that you log into your account to ensure that you are accruing Affiliate commissions properly.
Family Rations shall not be held liable for any indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages or any loss of revenue or profits arising under or with respect to this agreement or program, even if Family Rations has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Family Rations aggregate liability arising under or with respect to this agreement or the program shall in no event exceed the total Commissions paid or payable by Family Rations to Affiliate under this agreement. In no event shall Family Rations be liable to any party for costs of procurement of substitute goods, lost profits or any other special, consequential, incidental, 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 Family Rations has been advised of the possibility of such damages, losses, costs or expenses.
Affiliate understands that Family Rations is not responsible for inaccuracies that might occur in commission tracking. Tracking of Affiliate sales depend on several factors which are out of the control of Family Rations, such as the server uptime of our vendors. It is the goal of Family Rations to make Affiliate tracking as accurate as possible; however, Family Rations cannot guarantee 100% tracking for situations beyond its control. We strongly advise Affiliate Partners to periodically revise their account to ensure that they are accruing Affiliate commissions properly.
Since we’re based in California, if you have any legal issues with this agreement, any disputes will need to be resolved in San Diego County, California. By being a Family Rations affiliate, you agree to this jurisdiction.
This agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California and the United States, without regard to conflict of law principles. All disputes arising out of or related to this Agreement shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the California state courts of San Diego County and the parties consent to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of these courts.
This is the entire Agreement between Affiliate and Family Rations with respect to the subject matter hereof. Affiliate may not assign this Agreement, by operation or law or otherwise, without Family Rations’ prior written consent. Subject to that restriction, this Agreement will be binding on, inure to the benefit of and be enforceable against the parties and their respective successors and assigns. Family Rations ‘failure to enforce Affiliate’s strict performance of any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of Family Rations’ right to subsequently enforce that provision, or any other provisions of this Agreement. No waiver of any provision hereof will be effective unless in writing and signed by the party against whom such waiver is sought to be enforced.
