Good Authority Co. Affiliate Terms

Please read this Agreement carefully!

It covers all of the details of your participation in the Affiliate Program, including how you can use our information, links, images, and content.

By signing up to become an Affiliate, you are acknowledging that you have read, understood, and agreed to these terms. 

The Basics

What this Agreement is for:

Good Authority Co. (the Company) spends substantial time and resources marketing its products and services to appropriate clients online, including identifying people who may be interested in legal information and support.

This Agreement is made so that Affiliates (You and others we admit to the program) can earn a fee for referring people who purchase from Good Authority Co. There is no guarantee you will make sales under this Agreement. 

This Agreement is also made to specify how you may discuss Good Authority Co.’s products and services with potential clients and how the parties’ intellectual property will be treated. 

What this Agreement *does not* do:

This Agreement does not make the parties general partners, co-owners, principals or agents, or employers or employees of one another.

This Agreement does not sell or otherwise transfer ownership of either party’s respective business or intellectual property.

This Agreement does require either party to refrain from changing or reducing existing business lines and it does not create obligations to maintain certain business lines or act exclusively with one another.

This Agreement does not require us to accept a client and/or to provide (or not provide) a certain service. We maintain control over who may purchase from us.  

This Agreement does not allow you to share in fees for legal services performed by a lawyer. 

How to Become an Affiliate

You will complete an Affiliate Signup Form, accessible at GoodAuthority.co/Affiliate-Signup.

Once logged into the portal, you will have access to marketing materials and your unique tracking links for our programs.

Products and Services Available for Promotion by Affiliates

Good Authority offers four products: a physical book, a book club, a support-only membership, and a signature program which contains legal agreements for coaches. 

Our offerings are subject to change, repricing, or discontinuation at any time, in our sole discretion. 

At this time, affiliate commissions are payable for the purchase of the signature program only. 

You may not promote the Good Authority Co. affiliate program itself. 

How to Promote Good Authority’s Products and Services

Your promotions should be legal, fair, and follow our guidelines to protect our intellectual property.

We will provide you with an affiliate tracking link. Your right to use these links is non-transferable and revocable. 

You may not create your own links or sales pages, but must directly link to Good Authority’s site using your affiliate tracking link. 

If you wish to create images promoting the products or services, they must be approved for use in advance by contacting licensing@goodauthority.co.

You must prominently state that you will receive an affiliate commission for the sale of Good Authority’s products and services near the link, and in email or social media promotions. 

You may not offer your customers discounts, rebates, kick-backs, coupons, or any other monetary amount in exchange for the use of your affiliate link to purchase. However, you may offer a bonus to your customers, such as access to a program of yours for free or a reduced rate if they purchase through your affiliate link. 

You may not share your affiliate link with any other person who is not an intended customer (for example, with a friend for the purpose of sharing commissions). 

Please be aware that any tactic which violates the spirit of a referral relationship (i.e., your good faith promotion of Good Authority’s products to people who have expressed an interest in hearing from you, such as your email subscribers), as determined in our sole discretion, will result in termination of this agreement and forfeiture of any commissions earned using these tactics, as determined by Good Authority in its sole discretion. 

If you wish to use paid advertising to promote Good Authority’s products or services, or use SEO techniques that use our names or other intellectual property, you must contact licensing@goodauthority.co in advance. 

How to Get Paid

To get paid, you must provide us certain information, your referred sales must meet the criteria below, and we must accept the client. 

You must provide certain information to us on request to be paid under the terms of this Agreement. The requirements may change from time to time, but will always include a valid, United States mailing address and an updated W-9 (taxpayer ID) form. If you are an individual, you will receive a 1099 form at the end of the tax year. 

Good Authority will process valid orders (see “How to Promote…” above) placed through your unique tracking link and will pay you published rates of commission at the time of the sale. Orders not placed through your link will not be compensated. There are no exceptions due to the difficulty in proving the referral source.

Your affiliate payment will be payable after the fee is collected from the customer. If they pay in full, you will receive your complete affiliate payment. If they pay in installments, you will receive payment as a percentage of each installment. If they do not complete the payment program, you will not receive the entire commission. There are no circumstances in which you will receive two referral commissions for the same client for the same product. 

All aspects of order processing and fulfillment, including Good Authority’s services, cancellation, processing, refunds and payment processing will be our responsibility. Occasionally, in our sole discretion, we may have to refund a customer. You will not be compensated for such a sale.  

Commissions will be processed approximately forty-five (45) days after the end of the month in which they accrue. They will be paid via Paypal.

If you have a question about a commission, contact us within thirty (30) days from the day the payment would have been due at licensing@goodauthority.co.

We maintain sole rights to its links, sales pages, and offerings, including the rights to:

  1. Determine whether to offer, or continue to offer, a product or service; 
  2. Set pricing and availability of products and services; 
  3. Withhold commissions temporarily for Affiliates who refer clients with an excessive cancellation or chargeback rate;
