THIS AGREEMENT REQUIRES THAT ANY DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND OSH ARE SETTLED BY BINDING ARBITRATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 9 BELOW. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU READ AND UNDERSTAND THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND SECTION 9 BEFORE PARTICIPATING IN THE PROGRAM.
1. Description of the Program
The purpose of the Program is to encourage our affiliates (“you”) to promote the use of the OSH site by members of your community, in an effort to increase the adoption and availability of goods, products and services that comply with the halal requirements of the Islamic faith. Upon registration in the Program, you will be given a unique identifier code that you can then provide to members of your community and other referral sources. Prior to checking out and completing their purchase orders on the OSH site, customers will be prompted to input the unique identifier code that you have previously provided them.
Only those individuals or entities that successfully complete the registration form and receive a unique identifier code will be considered participants in the Program.
2. Monthly Donations
Within thirty (30) days after the conclusion of each calendar month, OSH will donate to your designated charity (the “Designated Recipient”) an amount equal to ten percent (10%) of the amount of purchases made by users utilizing your unique identifier code at the time of check out, minus OSH’s costs and expenses (the “Earned Donations”). Upon request, OSH will provide you with a report reflecting the amount of purchases made during the designated period and the amount donated to the Designated Recipient, provided that for privacy reasons such report will not include any information which identifies the customers who made such purchases or the products purchased.
OSH expressly reserves the right to refuse to make the Earned Donations to your Designated Recipient if OSH determines, in its sole and absolute discretion, that such Designated Recipient and/or its values, stances, policies do not align with OSH’s social guidelines and policies or with applicable laws. In such case, OSH shall notify you and you will be permitted to designate an alternate Designated Recipient. Furthermore, in no event shall the Designated Recipient be deemed to be a third-party beneficiary of this Agreement or have any rights to the Earned Donations except as expressly provided for herein, and subject to the terms of this Agreement.
3. OSH Customers
Our customers are not, by virtue of your participation in the Program, your customers. As between you and us, all pricing, terms of sale, rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service, and product sales set forth on the OSH site will apply to those customers and may be changed at any time. You will not handle or address any contacts with any of our customers, and, if contacted by any of our customers for a matter relating to interaction with the OSH site, you will state that those customers must follow contact directions on that OSH to address customer service issues. We will strive to provide excellent service and products that earn your trust and the trust of our customers.
You represent, warrant, and covenant that (a) you will participate in the Program in accordance with this Agreement, (b) your participation in the Program will not violate any applicable laws, ordinances, rules, regulations, orders, licenses, permits, guidelines, codes of practice, industry standards, self-regulatory rules, judgments, decisions, or other requirements of any governmental authority that has jurisdiction over you (including all such rules governing communications, data protection, advertising, and marketing), (c) you are lawfully able to enter into the Agreement (e.g. you are not a minor or otherwise legally prevented from contracting), (d) you have independently evaluated the desirability of participating in the Program and are not relying on any representation, guarantee, or statement other than as expressly set forth in this Agreement, (e) you will not participate in the Program if you are the subject of U.S. sanctions or of sanctions consistent with U.S. law imposed by the governments of the country where you are using our services; and (f) the information you provide in connection with the Program is accurate and complete at all times.
