NETILUM acts only as an intermediary, handling the functionalities of the Affiliate Marketing Software that allows the Affiliate and the Advertiser to enter into a relationship in the context of an Affiliate Program.
Thus, the Affiliate and the Advertiser recognize that NETILUM will not intervene in any manner in their relationship. The definition, uploading, and the operation of the Advertisers’ Affiliate Programs, as well as any and all possible modifications and interruptions thereof, remain the exclusive responsibility of the Affiliate and of the Advertiser.

The Affiliate Marketing Software records each visit to the Advertiser’s site, as well as each conversion performed by web users. It is agreed between the parties that the records made by the Affiliate Marketing Software are evidence of the visits and conversion transactions in execution of the Affiliate Marketing Program.

The parties recognize that the results determined by the Software are actionable.

Each Affiliate must implement all appropriate technical and legal measures in order to guarantee an adequate level of security with regard to personal data that is collected, stored, and/or transmitted, as well as to the risks inherent in these processes, such as loss, theft, and deletion of said data.
As in general, one must ensure compliance with current regulations regarding the data protection and security of the advertisers whom they promote.
The Affiliate commits to obtaining the prior, free, unequivocal, revocable consent of web users regarding AFFILAE tracking (placement of cookies).
The Affiliate agrees not to transmit the Advertiser’s personal data without the latter’s agreement.
The Affiliate acknowledges that by joining an Advertiser’s Affiliate Program, the Advertiser is solely responsible for the commissions generated and definitively validated through its Affiliate Program.
Consequently, the Affiliate acknowledges that NETILUM does not act as an intermediary or agent in the payment of affiliate commissions.
Affiliates are informed that NETILUM can benefit from a power of attorney granted by the Advertiser. In this case, it acts on behalf of the latter in its capacity as “paying agent”, in accordance with the provisions of Law No. 93-122 of 29 January 1993.
NETILUM will provide evidence of this power of attorney to the Affiliate by producing a POA certificate at the Affiliate’s first request.
The Affiliate authorizes NETILUM to generate on its behalf the invoices of its commissions definitively validated in “Auto-billing”, and as such, it is specified that the Affiliate retains full responsibility for its invoicing obligations.
The Auto-Billing process is based on the Affiliate’s complete contact information entered in the configuration of its AFFILAE account. It is therefore the Affiliate’s responsibility to ensure that these details are complete and up to date with any changes.
The Affiliate will send its invoices directly to NETILUM to which payment has been entrusted. It will also report to the latter on the conditions in which the dissemination of the affiliate program took place.
The affiliate undertakes to accept any payment from NETILUM, even partial, made on behalf of the Advertiser. The latter will be released from the Advertiser’s undertaking.
In any case, NETILUM, acting in its capacity as agent, cannot under any circumstances be required to pay the Affiliate’s invoices, which is the responsibility of the Advertiser.
Membership allows access to the Affiliate Marketing Software for a period of one (1) month from confirmation of membership.
The Advertiser’s commitment shall subsequently be renewed automatically for new periods of one (1) month, in the absence of termination of the membership carried out by the Advertiser in his/her personal space. The Advertiser’s termination of membership ends the membership as of the start of the following contract term.
This termination forbids any pursuit or maintenance of services offered by NETILUM.
It should be noted that, if the Advertiser does not validate the subscription for the AFFILAE service at the end of the free trial period, NETILUM will automatically freeze access to the advertiser’s account. The user can log in to its AFFILAE account but will be redirected to a subscription page.
Partnerships formed during the 20-day free trial period are deactivated in order to avoid any misunderstanding regarding the continuation of affiliate program activities with the Affiliates.
For these reasons, the tracking of conversions, clicks, and impressions are also stopped.
The Advertiser is notified in advance by email of the trial period end date and asked to subscribe to avoid its account being frozen.
If the advertiser activates its subscription a posteriori, the account, partnerships, and trackings will be reactivated.
The Advertiser’s commitment is billed at the beginning of the month, under any and all circumstances.
The bills are payable in advance, within 15 days of the date of issue, via the method of payment selected by the Advertiser upon initiating membership. The billing address is that of the Advertiser’s headquarters.
Services not included in the Affiliate Marketing Software are excluded from the subscription bill and will be billed separately.
In the event of non-payment by the due date, penalties shall be applied, which shall be equal to the interest rate of the Central European Bank in its most recent refinancing operation, augmented by 10 percentage points, starting from the day following the settlement date appearing on the bill, or, failing that, from the 31st day following the date of the end of the execution of the provision of service.
Late penalties are payable without any reminder required.
Pursuant to Article D. 441-5 of the Code of Commerce, in the event of a delay in payment, the debtor shall be fully liable to the creditor, aside from the lateness penalties already provided for under the law, for a lump sum of 40 euros for collection fees.
The failure to pay a bill causes the outstanding amount billed to be immediately due to NETILUM. Therefore, NETILUM reserves the right to deactivate any Advertiser account that falls into a state of non-payment.
No refund or credit can be granted by NETILUM on the amount of current, payable subscriptions.
The account deactivated is then frozen, the partnerships formed during the period of activity are deactivated in order to avoid any misunderstanding on the continuation of the affiliation program with the Affiliates.
In the case of the advertiser activates his subscription again afterwards, partnerships will have to be reactivated manually.
The Advertiser shall define his/her Affiliate Marketing Program on his/her personal space and is responsible for the design, uploading, and termination thereof. He/she sets the amount of the commissions to be paid to the Affiliate and the methods of payment.
The uploading of the Affiliate Marketing Program takes effect as of the validation carried out by the Advertiser.
NETILUM reserves the right to access the Advertiser’s personal space for the purpose of verifying its proper functioning, as well as the validity and in particular the conformity of the present terms with the information transmitted by the Affiliate Marketing Program.
Any and all modifications of the Advertiser’s site, its hosting arrangement, or any other matter might be brought to the attention of NETILUM.
The Advertiser commits to actively collaborating with NETILUM, in particular by providing all of the information and all of the elements necessary for the use of the Affiliate Marketing Program.
The Advertisers alone are responsible for the content and the functionality of their Affiliate Marketing Program and guarantees that neither NETILUM nor any entity affiliated with NETILUM shall be subject to any claims or legal actions undertaken in relation to the Affiliate Marketing Program.
In particular, the Advertiser affirms that he/she holds all intellectual and industrial property rights to the elements circulated and commits to ensuring that the content of his/her Affiliate Marketing Program complies with prevailing legislation.

This power of attorney will be granted to NETILUM only when the Advertiser activates the option “paying agent” in its personal account.
A power of attorney compliant with legal provisions and a POA certificate will be issued to allow NETILUM to prove its capacity to its Affiliates.
