2. DESCRIPTION OF THE PROGRAM

Hostinger Türkiye grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable limited license to use the Affiliate Program in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth herein. The Affiliate Program allows you to provide a platform for advertising Hostinger Türkiye via your "Web Site" or "Publishing Location" (such as an electronic newsletter or blog), thereby driving traffic to Hostinger Türkiye's Web Site or Web Site content, whereby you may earn a portion of the revenue generated (a "Commission Payment") if a person or entity that is not you (a "Visitor") purchases a Hostinger Türkiye product or service after being referred to Hostinger Türkiye's Web Site or Web Site content from an internet hyperlink (a "Link") contained on your Web Site or Publishing Location. After being referred to Hostinger Türkiye's Web Site or Web Site content from a Link contained on your Web Site or Publishing Location, Visitors have forty-five (45) days to complete their purchase in order for you to receive a Commission Payment. Please note that you will only receive a Commission Payment for purchases completed through your Web Site or Publishing Location’s Link; subsequent purchases made by the same Visitor (by accessing Hostinger Türkiye’s Web Site directly) will not be commissionable. Additionally, should the Visitor click on another Web Site or Publishing Location's Link that is not controlled by you, or return to the Hostinger Türkiye Web Site via another source-coded advertising Link during the initial forty-five (45) days, your Link will be overwritten and you will not receive a Commission Payment for that Visitor's purchase. Only Hostinger Türkiye Shared and Reseller Hosting products will be eligible for a Commission Payment.

Commission Payments Generally

Hostinger Türkiye shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide you with accurate daily estimates of the revenue your Web Site or Publishing Location generates.

The Commission Structure may be comprised of (i) a percentage rate per product or service, (ii) a fixed amount per product or service. The Commission Structure may vary by Affiliate. The Commission Structure applicable to you may be found by signing into your affiliate area (your "Hostinger Türkiye Affiliate Area"). Hostinger Türkiye expressly reserves the right to change or modify the Commission Structure at any time, and such changes or modifications shall be effective immediately upon posting to your Hostinger Türkiye Affiliate Area without need for further notice to you. Hostinger Türkiye will hold the initial Commission Payment on orders for all products and services for sixty (60) days from the purchase date. After this time, Commission Payments will be paid out in accordance with the provisions below and will represent Commission Payments earned in the immediately preceding month or quarter, as the case may be, less any applicable fees and/or chargebacks. Hostinger Türkiye reserves the right to extend the payment date on orders suspected of fraudulent or abusive activity.
