Program Terms and Conditions
IMPORTANT: THIS AFFILIATE AND BRAND AMBASSADOR PROGRAM AGREEMENT CONTAINS A BINDING ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND WAIVER OF THE RIGHT TO LEGAL CLAIMS.
PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE AGREEMENT CAREFULLY.
BY SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION TO THE AFFILIATE AND BRAND AMBASSADOR PROGRAM HOSTED BY LIV ARONIA, YOU AGREE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT YOU UNEQUIVOCALLY AGREE TO BE LEGALLY BOUND EACH AND EVERY TERM AND CONDITION.
This AFFILIATE AND BRAND AMBASSADOR Program Agreement (the “Agreement”) is a legally binding contract between you (“Affiliate/Brand Ambassador”, “you”, or similar terms) and Liv Aronia trading under The Rennix Limited (“Liv Aronia”, “us”, “we”, or similar terms) and applies to your participation in the Liv Aronia Affiliate and Brand Ambassador Program (the “Program”). Any person or corporate entity that participates or attempts to participate in the Program must accept this Agreement without change. By registering for the Program, you agree to this Agreement.
1. Description of the Program
The Program permits you to monetise your social media and other social media or website generated content by placing on your social media profiles (“Your Profiles”) a personalised Affiliate/Brand Ambassador coupon code or link (“Your Code/Your Referral Link”). When our customers purchase eligible goods from https://livaronia.com (the “Liv Aronia Site”) using Your Code or Your Link, you are eligible to receive a commission for “Qualifying Purchases”, as further described (and subject to the limitations in) Section 3 below.
We periodically modify the terms of this Agreement. We might also choose to replace these terms in their entirety if, for example, the Program changes, ends, or becomes part of an existing program, including our partner programs. If you don’t agree to the modification or replacement, you can choose to terminate your participation in the Program.
YOUR CONTINUED PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM FOLLOWING ANY CHANGES TO THIS AGREEMENT WILL CONSTITUTE YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE MODIFICATIONS. IF ANY MODIFICATION IS UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU, YOUR ONLY RECOURSE IS TO TERMINATE YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM.
You and we are independent contractors, and nothing in this Agreement will create any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative, or employment relationship between you and us or our respective affiliates. You will have no authority to make or accept any offers or representations on our affiliates’ behalf.
You will ensure that the information in your Program application and information otherwise associated, including your email address, mailing address, and other contact information, is at all times complete, accurate, and up-to-date. We may send notifications (if any), approvals (if any), and other communications relating to the Program and this Agreement to the email address then-currently associated with your Program account. You will be deemed to have received all notifications, approvals, and other communications sent to that email address, even if the email address associated with your account is no longer current.
You can update your information by emailing us at: email@example.com
2. Eligibility To Participate In The Program & Prohibited Activities

In that case, you represent and warrant that the minor is of legal age to participate in the Program, you are the legal parent or guardian of the minor whose rights are covered by this Agreement, that you have read the terms of this Agreement and consent to the terms herein and you will not revoke your consent.
- You must have an Instagram account.
- You must have a PayPal account or a valid international bank account.
- You must comply with this Agreement to participate in the Program and to receive Commissions.
- You must promptly provide us with any information that we request to verify your compliance with this Agreement.
- You must clearly state the following, or any substantially similar statement (the “Disclosure”) on Your Profiles: “As a Liv Aronia Brand Ambassador, I earn from qualifying purchases.
- You must be kind and respectful to all other Brand Ambassadors.
- Your Code is for you to post solely in Your Profiles. Participation in the Program does not grant you any rights to sell Liv Aronia items at events of any kind (ex. farmer’s markets, beauty exchanges, roadshows, retail stores etc.) unless you have received express written permission by us.
- You must not comment with Your Code on any Liv Aronia social media posts or channels (i.e. Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc.), even if you see another Brand Ambassador doing it.
- You must not post Your Code in the comments of any stores that promote our products.
- You must not enter into any retail stores that sell Liv Aronia goods and share Your Code with customers.
- DO NOT add Your Code to coupon sites, it’s cheating! We check these sites frequently.
- Do NOT share the “Refer a Friend” 50% off promotion! You don’t earn sales from it, so it’s not worth it.
- Remember that the purpose of the Program is to bring new clients to the brand and help spread the Liv Aronia movement!
3. Commissions on Qualifying Purchases
We will pay you a commission with a base amount of no less than 15% of the price paid by the customer and actually received by Liv Aronia, after taxes and shipping, on all Qualifying Purchases (your “Commission”). A “Qualifying Purchase” occurs when (i) a customer uses Your Code to purchase eligible goods from the Liv Aronia Site; (ii) the customer’s payment is successfully processed.
For example, if a customer uses Your Code to purchase a face oil priced at GBP£39.95 and Your Code provides the customer with a 20% discount, then once Liv Aronia receives that customer’s payment of GBP£31.96 (£39.95 less the 20% discount of £7.99), Liv Aronia would then pay VAT of 20% in the UK so in this case VAT of £5.33 which leaves a net amount of £26.63 to Liv Aronia. At this point, you will be eligible to receive a 15% commission deducted from the net amount (example £26.63 – 15%) to the amount of GBP£3.99 paid directly to you.
From time to time, we like to incentivise our Brand Ambassadors by offering increased commission rates for particular periods of time. For example, we may notify you that for a period of time, all Brand Ambassadors will earn a 25% Commission on Qualifying Purchases.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Qualifying Purchases are disqualified and no Commission shall be due whenever (a) they occur in connection with a violation of this Agreement, or any other terms, conditions, specifications, statements, and policies that we may issue from time to time that apply to the Program; (b) any purchases that occur after termination of your Agreement; (c) any order where a cancellation, return, or refund has been initiated; (d) any purchase by a customer who is referred to the Liv Aronia Site through any advertisement that you purchased through participation in bidding or auctions on keywords, search terms, or other identifiers that include the word “Liv Aronia”, or “Berry Blossom Face Oil”, or any other Liv Aronia trademark (or variations or misspellings of any of those words, (e) any purchase by a customer who is referred to the Liv Aronia Site by a link that is generated or displayed on a search engine (including Google, Yahoo, Bing, or any other search portal, sponsored advertising service, or other search or referral service, or any site that participates in such search engine’s network); (f) any purchase by a customer who is referred to the Liv Aronia Site by a link that sends users indirectly to the Liv Aronia Site via an intermediate site, without requiring the customer to click on a link or take some other affirmative action on that intermediate site; (f) any purchase by a customer, where such customer does not comply with the terms and conditions applicable to the Liv Aronia Site; or (g) any purchase that is not correctly tracked or reported because the Your Code is not properly formatted or inserted in the Liv Aronia Site’s checkout process.
We will use commercially reasonable efforts to accurately and comprehensively track Qualifying Purchases for the purposes of our internal tracking, and creating and distributing your Commissions. We may hold accrued Commissions for a reasonable period of time following any termination of this Agreement to ensure that the correct amount is paid.
We will pay Commissions in GBP via PayPal or in your local currency by bank transfer approximately 30 days following the end of each calendar month in which they were earned. You may be permitted to elect to receive payment in a currency other than GBP Great British Pounds. If you choose to do so, you agree that the conversion rate will be determined in accordance with the standard forex rates at the time of transfer from GBP to your selected currency. You are solely responsible for any PayPal fees, and any and all taxes. We are not responsible for any Commissions that you do not receive due to any suspension or termination of your PayPal account or selected bank account.
Payments made to you, as reduced by all deductions or withholdings described in the Agreement, will constitute full payment and settlement to you of amounts payable under the Agreement.
Suppose any excess payment has been made to you for any reason whatsoever. In that case, we reserve the right to adjust or offset the same against any subsequent fees payable to you under the Agreement or any other agreement between you and us.
We may deduct or withhold any taxes that we may be legally obligated to deduct or withhold from any amounts payable to you under this Agreement. From time to time, we may request tax information from you. If we request tax information from you and you do not provide it to us, we reserve the right (in addition to any other rights or remedies available to us) to hold any amounts otherwise payable to you in connection with the Program until you provide this information or otherwise satisfy us that you are not a person from whom we are required to obtain tax information.
