Life Credit shall track users who access Life Credit properties from the Affiliate’s website via a custom link or forms with a cookie containing the Affiliate’s identification, and that expires in ninety (90) days following said visit. The cookie containing the Affiliate identification will be replaced with the cookie of another affiliate if the user subsequently accesses Life Credit from the link of the other affiliate. A website visit prior to the expiration of the cookie will be attributed to the Affiliate link provider whose Affiliate identification is recorded in the cookie associated with that website user.
a) All rewards are disbursed in US Dollars.

c) In the event a reward is disbursed to Affiliate in error, Life Credit reserves the right to charge back such reward for a period of up to 90 days from the loan issue date (the “Error Charge Back Period”). Any resulting amount owed to Life Credit by Affiliate may, in Life Credit’s sole discretion, be deducted from rewards earned by Affiliate that are undisbursed as of the date Life Credit charges back the reward disbursed in error. If no rewards are owed by Life Credit to Affiliate during the Error Chargeback Back Period, Life Credit may invoice Affiliate for the reward disbursed in error before the expiration of the Error Charge Back Period and Affiliate agrees to pay such invoice promptly notwithstanding the expiration of the Error Charge Back Period. In addition, Life Credit may, in its sole discretion, deduct any reward disbursed in error from rewards earned by Affiliate after the expiration of the Error Charge Back Period so long as Life Credit has invoiced Affiliate for the reward disbursed in error before the expiration of the Error Charge Back Period.
d) Life Credit will have the sole right and responsibility for issuing all loans to its borrowers, and Affiliate acknowledges that all agreements between Life Credit and its borrowers shall be solely between Life Credit and its borrowers.
e) Life Credit reserves the right to withhold or reverse rewards if Affiliate is in breach of this agreement, or has engaged in any fraudulent activity, including, but not limited to, cookie stuffing, cloaking, or forcing pop-ups.
f) Life Credit reserves the right to adjust the terms of this Program Addendum at any time and will notify Affiliate via email with at least 30 days’ notice.
g) Acceptable Methods to Refer Leads
i. Affiliates may refer leads through their unique tracking links.
ii. Affiliates may register leads at any Life Credit web properties
iii. Life Credit will pay a reward to Affiliate only when a customer is referred through either of these two acceptable methods.
h) Cookie and Lead Registration Length
i. A click on Affiliate’s tracking links will set Affiliate as latest referring partner and will set cookies that expire after 90 days, after which time Affiliate’s latest referring partner status will expire.
i) Partner Assignments
i. Affiliate may request an audit of the latest original partner up to 90 days after loan issuance. If an audit reveals another Life Credit partner is the actual original referring partner, Life Credit reserves the right to make the correction. If another Life Credit partner requests an audit that results in a determination that Affiliate was incorrectly treated as the original
referring partner, Affiliate agrees to reimburse Life Credit for the reward disbursed in error in accordance with Section (d) above. After 90 days from the date of sale, no changes to the latest referring partner will be accepted.
ii. All sales are subject to an audit of the original referring partner.
