AFFILIATE AGREEMENT

Commission
MPC will pay commissions as stated from time to time in the postings upon the website. These will be subject to change at the discretion of MPC and rates of commission may vary between individuals or groups at any one time.

An affiliate commission will apply in respect of third party paid membership transactions indicated within the website as attracting affiliate commissions.  MPC may from time to time apply affiliate commission structures to other products available through this website – to which additional and  / or alternative terms and conditions may apply. Affiliates may not refer themselves for the receipt of affiliate commissions. MPC offers no warrant as to who or how many parties may take up an opportunity to make a purchase and no guarantee as to any income can therefore be given to affiliates.

Cookies
MPC have structured the website system to leave cookies upon the browser of the computers of individuals to whom affiliates make referrals. It is the intention that those referrals may make purchase transactions through the website and that the referring affiliate will be recognised for commission eligibility. However, no such system is infallible and individuals may also take steps to ensure that an affiliate is not recognised for a referral. The cookie system also allows that cookies from a subsequent referring affiliate implant to the computer of an individual and so the subsequent referring affiliate would then gain the credit and take the commission. Whilst we expect the system to work fairly and to the satisfaction of all affiliates most of the time, MPC makes no warrant that the original referrer will achieve the commission they might desire. Cookies are designed to last indefinitely, although individuals may well clear out their cookies from their computer from time to time.

Spam 
AT ITS SOLE DISCRETION, MPC SHALL TERMINATE THE ACCOUNTS AND MEMBERSHIP WITHOUT REFUND OF ANY  AFFILIATE SUSPECTED OF TARGETING AFFILIATE COMMISSIONS USING SPAM EMAILS OR ANY OTHER UNDESIRABLE MARKETING TACTICS (IN THE OPINION OF MPC). IN ADDITION, MPC RESERVES THE RIGHT TO TAKE LEGAL ACTION AGAINST ANY SUCH INDIVIDUAL TO RECOVER COSTS AND DAMAGES ARISING AS A CONSEQUENCE OF ANY SUCH ACTIVITIES BY AN AFFILIATE.

THE ‘INVITE A FRIEND’ FORM ON THE MPC WEBSITE SHALL ONLY BE USED TO INVITE FAMILY AND FRIENDS GENUINELY KNOWN TO THE AFFILIATE AND NOT FOR SPECULATIVELY APPROACHING ANY OTHER CONTACTS OR AQUANTANCE OR PERSON NOT WELL KNOWN TO THE AFFILIATE. SUCH APPROACHES MAY AT THE DISCRETION OF MPC BE TREATED AS SPAM. COMPLAINTS WILL BE TAKEN VERY SERIOUSLY!

Payments
Commissions will be paid by MPC to the affiliate on a monthly basis and may be subject to a minimum payment amount at the discretion of MPC. All payments shall be by Paypal masspay unless alternative payment arrangements are made from time to time at the discretion of MPC. It is the responsibility of the affiliate to ensure that they have a valid Paypal account and enter their Paypal email address in the User Profile form in their member area. MPC shall not be responsible for delivery of payments by Paypal or other delivery organisation selected for delivery and MPC shall not be responsible for any fees charged to the recipient by Paypal or other organisation delivering payments. Commission payments shall only become valid for scheduling after 30 days following the date of the third party transaction to which the affiliate commission relates, trusting that the third party transaction is not cancelled or reversed at any time. A cancelled or reversed third party transaction shall not result in an affiliate commission being payable or if already paid, may be reclaimed or offset against future payments to the affiliate by MPC.

Thankfully, the exercise modules we have designed are very carefully structured to lead you on a journey of physical development.
