This Agreement relates to your responsibilities as an affiliate and our responsibilities to you. Please ensure that you read and understand this document in its entirety and, if necessary, seek the assistance of an attorney, as each of the terms of this Agreement is important to our working relationship.
The Parties referred to in this Agreement are defined as follows:

You must be at least 18 (eighteen) years old to apply for our Affiliate Programme or use this website.

4) REGISTRATION FOR THE PROGRAMME
To apply for our Affiliate Program, you will first be asked to submit an Affiliate Application. The Affiliate Application can be found at the following website: bambooimport.com/.
Submission of an Affiliate application does not guarantee inclusion in the Affiliate Programme. We evaluate each application and are the sole and exclusive decision-maker regarding the admission of an Affiliate. If we decide not to admit you to the Affiliate Programme, we will endeavour to give you reasonable notice. If you do not receive notice from us within a reasonable time, your application will be deemed rejected. We are under no obligation to provide you with an explanation for the rejection, but we may reject applicants for any reason or in any way, including, but not limited to, a website or social media page that violates our Acceptable Use Policy.
If your Affiliate application is rejected, you may not reapply. If your Affiliate application is accepted, all terms and conditions in this Agreement will apply to your participation. We may also ask you for additional information to complete your Affiliate application or ask you to take additional steps to ensure your eligibility for the Affiliate Programme.
This agreement does not create an exclusive relationship between you and us. You are free to work with similar affiliate programme providers in any category. This agreement does not restrict us from working with any individual or company of our choice.

The Link will be associated with your identity and will direct online users to the Company's website or websites. You hereby agree to cooperate fully with us with respect to the Link and that you will at all times explicitly abide by all the terms of this Agreement for the promotion of the Link. We may change the specific link or links and will notify you if we do so. You agree to only use links that have been pre-approved by us and to post the Link prominently on your website or social media page as described in your Affiliate Application (collectively, the "Affiliate Site").
Each time a user clicks on the Link placed on the Affiliate Site and completes the sale of the product or service, and we determine it to be a Qualifying Purchase as described below, you will be eligible to receive the following percentage of the sale: 10% (ten percent).
All products, photos, texts, colours and logos must be used from the Bamboo Import Fire Kit.
7) SPECIFIC CONDITIONS APPLICABLE
