2.7. The Parties intend that the Affiliate will be engaged as an independent contractor of Altered. Nothing contained in this Agreement will be construed to create the relationship of employer and employee, principal and agent, or any other fiduciary relationship. The Affiliate may not act as agent for, or on behalf of, Altered or represent Altered, or bind Altered in any manner. The Affiliate will not be entitled to worker's compensation, retirement, insurance or other benefits afforded to employees of Altered. Unless otherwise agreed or required by law, the Affiliate is solely responsible for filing all tax returns and submitting all payments as required by any federal, state, local, or foreign tax authority arising from the payment of fees to the Affiliate under this Agreement, and agrees to do so in a timely manner. Any amount due to the Affiliate is considered as a gross payment and any tax or cost associated with such payment will be taken out of the calculated due amount.

3.1. Participation in the Affiliate Program may require that you create an account through a third–party affiliate tracking and reports service provider called First Promoter.

3.4. During the term of this Agreement the Affiliate may use Altered marketing material, including registered trademarks, which are provided by Altered through the First Promoter portal, solely for the purpose of promoting the Platform. The Affiliate will ensure that the use of Altered’s marketing material will not cause any confusion as to the Platform or service provider, nor can the marketing material be used in a way that is not appropriate to promote Altered and their core values, or to promote any service provider other than Altered.

184.108.40.206 In some cases, Altered can give credit to an Affiliate even if the above does not apply. This will be at the discretion of Altered, and supporting evidence needs to be provided before a customer can qualify as a Qualified Customer.
3.5.3. Expiration. Commission is paid only for a certain period of time. A Customer remains a Qualified Customer for a duration of 360 days, starting from the moment of their first purchase.
4.1. Commission is calculated based on the net amounts received from Qualified Customers for a Qualifying Plan. For the purposes of this Agreement, net amount represents the total payments from a Qualified Customer to Altered minus (i) any sales or other applicable taxes and (ii) any reclaimed or refunded amounts.
4.2. Commission becomes due for payment one month after purchase by a Qualified Customer.
4.3. Due commission is paid during the last five business days of each month.

4.6. Commission is agreed in the amount of 15% of the net amount of the payments made by a Qualified Customer which relate to a Qualifying Plan.
