Setting Up an Ambassador Account
To set up an Ambassador Account, you will be required to complete the online sign-up form (the “Application”) on our Website. In completing the application, we may require you to share additional information about your website, social media information and other information we deem relevant.
We consider all ambassador applications that we receive. We will access your submitted application and we reserve the right to accept or reject an application based on reasonable grounds that we deem fit. Our application assessment guidelines will be determined by us and may be subject to change from time to time.
We will then provide you with a unique link to post on your website and/or social media platforms and other acceptable means to pass on to others. Each ‘click’ on this link will be registered on your Ambassador Account using a cookie that is set on the user’s computer, and for each referral received through the link associated with your ambassador account, you will earn a commission at the rate set out on our Website.
Social Tuto Pro Ambassador
Pro Ambassador level is open to every Ambassador in the Social Tuto Ambassador Program and is chosen manually by Social Tuto upon request. Acceptance into the Pro Ambassador level is based on the participant’s skill set level and experience, high amount of views on provided content submissions, high earning and/or high community engagement.
Pro Ambassador eligibility is regularly evaluated by Social Tuto to ensure that quality standards and expectations of our Pro Ambassadors are maintained. We also have the right to review our Pro Ambassador policies and criteria.
Relationship of Parties
You are hereby engaged by Social Tuto as an Independent contractor to act as an Ambassador for Social Tuto. As between you and Social Tuto, you are an independent contractor, and nothing in this Agreement will create any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative or employment relationship between the parties. You have no authority to make or accept any offers or representations on Social Tuto’s behalf.
Commissions and Payment of Commissions by Social Tuto
For the services performed by you during the term of this Agreement and for each completed referral registration that arrives through your link, the sole and exclusive commission to be paid by Social Tuto to you shall be as specified within the Ambassador program description as described on the Social Tuto website. The commission rate shall be subject to the program description which outlines the payment structure, percentages per person and minimum payouts with respect to any commission you will receive. This rate schedule and agreement shall not be construed to have established or implied an employer-employee relationship but is agreed upon by both parties as a convenient schedule of paying the Ambassador for the services provided herein this Agreement. Social Tuto reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to make modifications to the program from time to time.
You shall not be entitled to any commission in the event that a sale is not completed, received after the termination of this Agreement, or not approved by Social Tuto. Commissions shall be paid to you via Paypal, except otherwise agreed and you shall be responsible for any incurring transaction charges.
You may be entitled to other bonuses and benefits in the event such bonuses and/or benefits have been sanctioned by Social Tuto. You shall be solely responsible for any and all due taxes and fees applicable to such compensation paid to you by Social Tuto.
As an Ambassador of Social Tuto, you shall be responsible for the payment of all income-based taxes relating to your earnings under this Agreement. In any event, where Social Tuto have to make such taxes paid on your behalf, you shall have to repay such amounts to Social Tuto.

Termination and Closure of Inactive Accounts
Our Ambassadors are not obligated to meet quotas or guarantee sales. However, if any Ambassador Account is inactive for a period of more than one (1) year, then we will close that account, meaning any clicks using the unique link associated with that account will no longer be registered to that account and no commission will be payable in respect of any sales coming through that link.
You can choose to end your membership of our Ambassador program at any time, for any reason, by notifying us that you wish to do so. We will then close your account, meaning any clicks using your unique link will no longer be registered to your account. Any commission which has not already been paid to you at the date that your account is closed will be paid through to you within two (2) months of your account being closed.
We can terminate your membership of our Ambassador program at any time, for any reason, by giving you thirty (30) days written notice.

Any commission which has not already been paid to you at the date that your account is closed will be paid through to you on our next payment date.
We can also terminate your membership of the Ambassador program with immediate effect if you breach any of these Terms and do not remedy that breach (if capable of remedy) within fourteen (14) days of notice from us.
