2. CallRail Partner Program
The CallRail Partner Program is designed for internet marketing services professionals, creative services firms, ad agencies, PR firms, marketing agencies, web design and development companies and other marketing professionals who provide marketing services to other companies. Partners can benefit from a variety of services and resources provided by CallRail. Partners may generate income by reselling the CallRail Service and also by referring sales leads to CallRail and earning commissions on each sale that results.
Partner agrees to join, and CallRail agrees to accept Partner into, the CallRail Partner Program as provided in this Agreement, and each party agrees to perform its obligations under and act in compliance with this Agreement.
This Agreement does not create an exclusive agreement between you and us. You will have the right to work with and recommend products and services similar to ours, and likewise, we have the right to work with and recommend products and services similar to yours.
4. Partner Transactions
a. Partner Rights and Obligations. We grant you, subject to the limitations set forth below, a non-transferable, non-exclusive right to provide End Users access to use the CallRail Products in accordance with this Agreement and the Customer Terms of Service, provided that End Users agreed to the Customer Terms of Service. We may provide limited sales support to you, such as occasional participation on a call with you and a prospect. You will comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement at all times, including the Program Policies, which are incorporated herein by reference. The Program Policies may include requirements that Partner must complete in order to qualify for a certain partner tier.
b. Partner Program Limits. We will pay you a Revenue Share for as long as the End User maintains a subscription to the Subscription Service, provided that you remain eligible to receive a Revenue Share pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.
c. Eligibility. To be eligible for a Revenue Share, a customer must be accepted in accordance with the ‘Customer Acceptance’ section.
You are not eligible to receive a Revenue Share based on transactions with a CallRail Lead (as defined below) or if: (i) such compensation is disallowed or limited by federal, state or local law or regulation in the United States or the laws or regulations of your jurisdiction; (ii) the applicable End User objects to or prohibits such compensation or excludes such compensation from its payments to us; or (iii) the End User has paid or will pay such commissions, referral fees, or other compensation directly to you. We may discontinue Revenue Share payment should any of the eligibility criteria set forth in this subsection fail to be met at any time.
d. Customer Acceptance. After the Free Trial begins, but no later than fourteen (14) days after we send the first invoice to the End User, you must complete our customer registration form, located at https://www.callrail.com/partners/registration/, and include valid and complete information in all required fields. We typically accept a customer who, in our sole determination, (i) is a new potential customer and (ii) is not a pre-existing customer (iii) is not currently and has not in the last 90 days been involved with the sales process with us. We may choose not to accept a customer at our discretion. A customer is not considered valid: (i) if it is not registered, (ii) if it is not accepted, or (iii) after this Agreement is expired or terminated.
e. Acceptable Use. You will take all reasonable steps to ensure that End Users do not use the CallRail Products in violation of the Customer Terms of Service. If you discover or have reason to believe that any End User is making use of the CallRail Products in violation of the Customer Terms of Service, then you will immediately notify us in writing.
5. Revenue Share and Payment.
In order to receive payment, you must: (1) have fully executed an Partner Program Agreement with CallRail (this agreement must be signed by you and us, typically via an e-signature), (2) complete all information in our partner registration form, and (3) submit to us a completed Form W-9 (for U.S.-based companies) or Form W-8BEN (for non-U.S. based companies.) The account information form, along with a Form W-9 or Form W-8BEN must be returned to us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You must comply with all the requirements in this section in order to receive payment, and failure to do so will result in non-payment by us.
We will pay the Revenue Share amount due to you within forty-five (45) days after the end of each fiscal quarter in an amount equal to the Commissionable Revenue we recognize as revenue from Partner Transactions during such quarter, times the Revenue Share percentage. (For example, pre-payment in full by an End User for an annual commitment will be recognized by us as revenue quarterly on a pro-rata basis for the length of time the Subscription Service was provided during each quarter during the annual term, and you will receive the Revenue Share on that same quarterly pro-rata basis.) The Revenue Share will be paid in USD. We will not pay more than one Revenue Share or other similar referral fee on any given partner sale (unless we choose to in our discretion) and we may apportion a Revenue Share if more than one of our partners has contributed to the close of a sale.
You are responsible for payment of all taxes applicable to the Revenue Share. Any amount paid to you by us may be offset by any amount you owe to us.
6. Partner Training and Support
We will make available to you the resources at https://www.callrail.com/partners/. We may also choose to make benefits available dependent on the applicable partner tier and status. We may change or end these benefits at any time without notice.
