This Affiliate Program Agreement ("Agreement") provides terms and conditions applicable to your membership in the QuoteHero MyProtectionHero Affiliate Program ("QMAP") that are in addition to any terms and conditions that you may have agreed to pursuant to an agreement with a QuoteHero Marketing Affiliate Program Agreement. QuoteHero and Affiliate Member each acknowledge that they may be parties to agreements with "QuoteHero Marketing Affiliates" (i.e. Insurance Companies, Warranty Companies, Health, etc.) and may be participants in a QuoteHero Marketing Affiliate Network ("Program").
PinPoint Insurance Services Inc., A California Corporation, DBA QuoteHero ("QuoteHero"), operates www.MyProtectionHero.com and all branded versions as a Financial Wellness platform providing access to various insurance, warranty, health and other consumer and business products and services “shop and compare” Web site. As part of its Web site, QuoteHero offers QMAP, through which approved Individuals and companies operating their own Web sites or apply and are approved by QuoteHero to use the branded QMAP Web site("Affiliate(s)") are granted a revocable, limited and non-exclusive right to:
lawfully advertise and promote QuoteHero services and the QMAP Web site(s) solely in a manner approved by QuoteHero;
lawfully post an approved graphical or textual Internet hyper-link ("Link") to the QMAP Web site; and
lawfully direct visitors from the Affiliate’s Web Site to a specific URL or landing page designated by QuoteHero ("Destination Site").
Affiliates are offered the opportunity to earn an "Advertising Fee or Revenue Share" (noted on Addendum 1 and may be changed in QuoteHero’s sole discretion by notifying QMAP members of a different Advertising Fee via email communication).
All participation in QMAP is subject to QuoteHero approval, which may be withheld in QuoteHero' sole discretion. In addition, each approval is made on an Affiliate by Affiliate and Web site by Web site basis, for those Affiliates operating more than one Web site. Affiliate must submit the URL for each Web site for which the Affiliate is seeking approval, regardless of whether Affiliate maintains a separate QMAP account on the Program for such Affiliate Web site.
Unless notified to the contrary, in writing from QuoteHero, all prospective Affiliates must submit an application to QuoteHero in order to become an "approved" Affiliate eligible to participate in QMAP and post Links to the QMAP Web site and earn Advertising Fees.
Unless notified to the contrary, QuoteHero will notify each prospective Affiliate in writing (by e-mail) whether or not it has been approved. Affiliate is not authorized to participate in QMAP or to post Links to the QuoteHero Web site until approved in advance by QuoteHero.
Limited License to Use QuoteHero Marks.
Upon receiving a written notice of approval, QuoteHero grants to Affiliate a limited, revocable, non-transferable, non-exclusive license during the term of this Agreement to use (in the United States) only those QuoteHero and QMAP marks, trademarks, service marks, trade names, trade dress, logos, graphics and icons specifically designated and provided by QuoteHero ("Marks") solely in connection with the marketing, advertising, and promotion of the QuoteHero QMAP advertisements posted on the Affiliate’s Web site (which advertisements must be approved by QuoteHero) and in connection with the graphical/textual Links to the Destination Site.
Affiliate’s use of the QuoteHero' Marks will at all times be subject to the prior written approval of QuoteHero and in accordance with the following:
Affiliate shall comply with all reasonable guidelines provided by QuoteHero with respect to the graphic reproduction, appearance, and "look and feel" related to the marketing and representation of QuoteHero, QMAP and its products and services.
Affiliate’s use of the Marks shall include the appropriate trademark/service mark symbols and Affiliate shall not remove such symbols.
Nothing in the Agreement gives Affiliate any right, title or interest in the "QuoteHero®" logo or mark, or any other QuoteHero owned marks. QuoteHero reserves all rights, title and interest in the Marks and the goodwill associated with use of the Marks shall inure solely to the benefit of QuoteHero. All rights not expressly granted in the Agreement are reserved by QuoteHero.
The Affiliate’s right to use the Marks is limited to and arises only out of the license granted hereunder. This license may be immediately terminated upon notice from QuoteHero and shall automatically terminate upon any termination or expiration of this Agreement.
Affiliate shall not assert the invalidity, unenforceability, or contest the ownership by QuoteHero of the Marks in any action or proceeding of whatever kind or nature, and shall not take any action that may prejudice QuoteHero's right, title or interest in the marks, render the same generic, or otherwise weaken their validity or diminish their associated goodwill.
Affiliate agrees not to register or attempt to register any phrases, marks or logos that would cause confusion, or be likely to cause confusion, with any of the QuoteHero' Marks.
Affiliate acknowledges QuoteHero’s rights in and to the Marks and any display by Affiliate of Marks will inure to the sole benefit of QuoteHero.
Affiliate may not make any specific representations concerning the quality of any QuoteHero products or services, nor that QuoteHero "officially" endorses Affiliate in any way, nor that QuoteHero recommends Affiliate’s products or services over those of any other company or person.
Affiliate is not permitted to use the Marks to disparage or parodize QuoteHero, its subsidiaries, products, or services, or for promotional goods, or for products which in QuoteHero reasonable judgment may diminish or otherwise damage QuoteHero goodwill in the Marks, including but not limited to uses that could be deemed to be obscene, violent or otherwise in poor taste or unlawful, or which purpose is to encourage unlawful activities.
QuoteHero requires that Affiliate obtain original digital or camera-ready artwork directly from QuoteHero. No re-sampling or other attempted duplication is allowed and no alterations, modifications, cropping or additions to the Marks are permitted.
All printed materials or visual displays that involve any graphics or color should be presented in color the original colors provided.
The "QuoteHero®" logo may only be displayed as provided by QuoteHero. Black and white can only be used in approved materials that are less than 4-color.
The typeface for the Marks will only be the typeface supplied by QuoteHero.
Original logo art supplied by QuoteHero can be enlarged or reduced in size, but must be done in exact proportion to the original height and width. The Marks should always have the "®" registered mark symbol or "SM" service mark symbol near the right shoulder of the mark.
The "QuoteHero®" logo must only appear in standard size for the allowed Affiliate materials, such size to be pre-approved by QuoteHero in accordance with the terms of the Agreement.
The Affiliate’s mark(s), name(s) and/or logo(s) must not touch or be placed inside of any part of the "QuoteHero®" logo.
The "QuoteHero®" logo may not be violated or touched by any other text or graphics in any way and there must be a border of space of at least 15 percent of the total height of the letter "Q" surrounding the "QuoteHero®" logo on all sides in every instance the Logo appears.
Any marketing materials or visual display for the Affiliate’s products or services that use the "QuoteHero®" logo must (in the sole opinion of QuoteHero) be consistent with the following brand attributes of the products and services offered by QuoteHero (e.g. easy-to-use, trusted, financial and very high quality.)
Any colors, fonts, images or graphics that are used in materials that visually display the "QuoteHero®" logo should reflect those same brand attributes without copying the overall QuoteHero trade dress that appears on the QuoteHero' Websites or other QuoteHero created materials.
In QuoteHero review of Affiliate’s marketing materials, QuoteHero may provide input about whether said materials or displays conform to the brand character. If marketing materials or visual displays are, in the sole opinion of QuoteHero, inconsistent with QuoteHero brand character, QuoteHero can require that such materials be changed prior to any public distribution as set forth in the Agreement.
The "QuoteHero®" logo is a service mark of QuoteHero and its parent PinPoint Insurance Services Inc., a California Company and must appear with the ® symbol placed on the right "shoulder" of the mark. Thus, the correct symbol placement generally is as follows: "QuoteHero®". The symbol must appear in every iteration of the mark in logo form, but may be omitted after the first mention in prose/plain-text materials.
In addition to the above, the appropriate ownership legend must be included in the "legal notices" section of any materials in which the "QuoteHero®" logo or mark is displayed. This legend must read generally as follows: "QuoteHero® is a registered mark of PinPoint Insurance Services Inc., a California Company, displayed with permission." In advertising and promotional materials, the legend is typically placed at the bottom of the ad or layout. The legend may appear in small type, but must still be legible.
Affiliate should attempt to use the "QuoteHero®" mark as an adjective in at least its first iteration in said materials (i.e., "QuoteHero service"). Subsequently, the generic word which the "QuoteHero®" mark modifies may be omitted where the immediate context shows that the word is intended, such as during repetitive mentions of the software within a single paragraph or section. For example: First iteration: We recommend using the QuoteHero® MyProtectionHero Web site. Subsequent uses: QuoteHero® allows users to better organize their businesses.
QuoteHero reserves the right to object to unfair uses or misuses of the "QuoteHero®" mark or other violations of applicable law.
Permission to use the "QuoteHero®" logo and marks are subject to written approval by an authorized representative of QuoteHero as to each of Affiliate’s uses.
