Mission Market Fundraising Affiliate Program Terms & Conditions
Joining the Program
By filling out the signup form, and upon acceptance, you will become an affiliate and are bound by the terms of this agreement. Your participation in the program is solely for this purpose: to legally advertise our website and to receive a commission on donation items purchased by your referred individuals, which will be paid out to your nonprofit of choice.
To sign up as a Fundraising Affiliate of Ordinary Hero and to use the Service as an Affiliate Partner you will be asked to supply a tax-id, which should preferably be a federal tax-id for the Adoption Agency, School, Ministry, or Nonprofit with which you are associated as the payee.
If you are raising support for an Ordinary Hero Mission Trip, you will receive a credit toward your trip cost - no checks will be sent to you personally. If your trip is fully funded through your fund raising efforts, all additional income will be considered a donation to Ordinary Hero.
All commissions earned by you (the Affiliate) will be sent by check on your behalf to your Adoption Agency, School, Ministry, or Nonprofit 501c3 Organization with which you are associated and raising funds for. We do not give the commissions to individuals alone. We must have proof of 501c3 tax exempt status with your associated organization. If you (the Affiliate) earn commissions through this Affiliate program and we(Ordinary Hero), at any time, are unable to confirm or approve your association, and/or affiliation with a 501c3 organization for payout, then all commissions earned by you (the Affiliate) will immediately become the sole earnings of Ordinary Hero Foundation, Inc. Be sure to put your agency information, school, or mission organization under the "Payee" during sign up.
It is understood that you will introduce the Ordinary Hero Mission Market and it's donation merchandise, to your current and prospective donor relationships (customers) and will comply with all laws as well those that govern email marketing and anti-spam laws.

Either you or Ordinary Hero may terminate the Affiliate relationship at any time. You are only eligible to earn Affiliate payments during your time as an approved Affiliate. Ordinary Hero may change the program or service policies and operating procedures at any time.
This Affiliate relationship is one of independent contractors. Ordinary Hero will not be liable for indirect, special or consequential damages arising in connection with this program and our aggregate liability arising with respect to this program will not exceed the total referral fees paid or payable to your listed payee. Ordinary Hero makes no express or implied warranties or representations with respect to the program. In addition, Ordinary Hero makes no representation that the operation of the service will be uninterrupted or error-free, and Ordinary Hero will not be liable for the consequences of any interruptions or errors.
