4.2.6 Affiliates cannot use the materials supplied for actions and/or conduct that violate the applicable law or these terms and conditions. This will include, but is not limited to, the following actions and conduct, among others:
- Sending large amounts of unsolicited e-mails with identical content

- Deceiving third parties involved
- Unprofessional, discriminatory or offensive conduct
- Misusing the texts, logos or information of Ellebogen.
4.2.7 Among other things, the content of the affiliate’s website may not:
- Entail illegal activities, or promote or incite to incur therein
- Damage the good name and reputation of Ellebogen®
- Violate the copyrights, registered trademark rights or other rights of Ellebogen or third parties
- Be of a violent, pornographic or derivative nature
- Discriminate based on race, gender, religion or life philosophy.

4.2.9 If Ellebogen establishes that the installation and use of the Ellebogen® link or promotional code made by the affiliate is not appropriate, it will be entitled to block this link or promotional code.

5.2.15 Unless Ellebogen® has expressly given its permission in writing, the affiliate may not transfer or promise their rights and/or duties under contract or agreement with Ellebogen®, in whole or in part, to a third party, without the prior written consent of Ellebogen®. The approval required for this may be subject to specific terms and conditions imposed by Ellebogen®.
4.2.16 In order to prevent fraud, Ellebogen® may occasionally delay the payment of commissions to the AFFILIATE if it suspects that the sales causing these commissions have been made due to an incorrect use of the resources, materials and/or promotional links provided by Ellebogen® to the AFFILIATE. Some examples of these incorrect, illegal, prohibited practices and/or practices that may endanger the company’s reputation are:
- publishing the promotional material (such as images, links and/or graphs) on platforms where they do not have the proper authorisation to make these publications (for example, spamming in forums, mailing lists, among others).
- publishing the promotional material (such as images, links and/or graphs) without properly specifying that it is an advertisement and/or affiliate link. The AFFILIATE must notify their users that it is a link, graph and/or banner whose final link is an affiliate, and the mere contracting of a product and/or service through that link will result in a monetary commission for the AFFILIATE.
- any other activity that lies about our products and/or services, is not within current legislation and/or endangers the reputation of Ellebogen®.
4.2.17 If Ellebogen® detects fraudulent activity by the AFFILIATE in relation to the promotional resources provided by Ellebogen®, understanding as such the assigned links, assigned graphics and provided images, Ellebogen® will immediately cancel the AFFILIATE’s account and will reserve the right to take the corresponding legal actions against the AFFILIATE in order to be compensated for the activities that may have endangered the public image and/or reputation of the brand due to the bad practices exercised by the AFFILIATE.
Article 4.3 – Remuneration
4.3.1 This contract will accrue, as the only remuneration in favour of the affiliate, a commission for the individual and specific sales transactions carried out by Ellebogen directly through the links and promotional codes inserted on the affiliate’s website, in accordance with the conditions established in this contract.
The affiliate accepts that the commissions generated in their favour are invoiced through the “self-invoicing” system through which Ellebogen® will create the payment notifications and invoices; in such a way that the affiliate will not have to generate their own invoices.
4.3.2 The recording of transactions represented on the Ellebogen® website will be binding for the affiliate.
The transaction recording system used by Ellebogen is YITH WooCommerce Affiliates. In the event that it changes to another, Ellebogen will inform the affiliate of this change within 10 days, so that the affiliate can verify that the new system is safe and reliable for them.
If the affiliate is not satisfied with the new system, they must express it by e-mail to Ellebogen, leading to the end of this Affiliate Programme. If the affiliate does not declare their objection within the 10-day period, it will be understood that they accept it.
4.3.3 The billing periods are monthly.
4.3.4 The commission to be received by the affiliate will be determined based on the link or code specifically used in the transaction, in accordance with the table made available to the affiliate by Ellebogen. It will be a commission on the amount actually paid by the customer (not including taxes, discounts or shipping costs), without prejudice to the other sections of this article.
4.3.5 Cookies, which underlie the affiliate programme’s operating system, are stored for 15 days.
4.3.6 The affiliate will only be paid if Ellebogen has approved the transaction and received its price first. The approval of transactions corresponds to Ellebogen and to predefined criteria set by it.
4.3.7 The commission will be paid through Paypal (direct deposit into a bank account, transfer) once the term established in section 4.3.9 has elapsed.
4.3.8 If the user returns the product or service and/or cancels it, the affiliate will not be able to claim the commission in question. The affiliate will not receive any commission in that case.
4.3.9 Given that there is a 60-day guarantee for returns, commissions will not be paid immediately to the affiliate until after these 60 days have passed.
4.3.10 If the case contemplated in Article 4.3.8 arises and the affiliate has already collected the commission for that transaction, it will be deducted from the commission amount to be paid in the following billing period.
4.3.11 If the commission for one month is less than fifty euros (€50), no payment will be made during that month and the commission will be accumulated. Payment thereof will be made during the month in which the total accumulated amount is €50 or more.
4.3.12 Ellebogen® will pay the total commission earned by the affiliate for their participation in the various affiliate programmes in euros after the final billing period.
4.3.13 Ellebogen® will have a right, at all times, to set the amount owed to the affiliate against any amount owed by them to Ellebogen® for any reason.
4.3.14 The accumulated balance will be cancelled if the affiliate earns a total commission of less than €50, as well as if no transaction has been made in a twelve-month period.
4.3.15 If the affiliate is a natural person residing in the Spanish territory, a current personal tax withholding will be imposed on the total invoice in order to comply with the law of the Spanish Tax Agency. For affiliates who are natural or legal persons not residing in Spain and living in countries with no double taxation agreements with Spain, a current non-resident income tax withholding will be applied to the total invoice in order to comply with the law of the Spanish Tax Agency. The affiliate (who does not meet the requirements of the previous two paragraphs) will be responsible for paying all taxes and Social Security payments in their respective countries, through the invoices issued by Ellebogen®. Ellebogen may require the affiliate to truthfully complete a tax questionnaire for the purpose of providing tax information.
4.3.16 All persons residing in the Canary Islands who wish to invoice Canary Islands indirect tax must let us know through the traditional means of communication, as, by default, this tax is not invoiced.
4.3.17 Neither party to this agreement creates or presumes the creation of an employment, agency or distribution relationship between Ellebogen® and the affiliate.
4.3.18 Commission in favour of the Affiliate will only accrue through sales transactions specifically made through the specific links and promotional codes inserted on the Affiliate’s website at any time, so long as this insertion is authorised by this contract and meets its requirements. In the event that a transaction is performed through these links, it will not attribute any right in favour of the affiliate over other transactions that Ellebogen may perform with the same customer, before or in the future, over any kind of products and services, whether or not they are included in these links, when these transactions are made outside the links inserted on the affiliate’s website.

- by making use of the materials provided by Ellebogen in accordance with good marketing practices, avoiding using them in a way that is invasive or occurs without the prior consent of the recipient (on the means and/or platforms where it is necessary to obtain their prior consent, it will be necessary to keep these records of consent in the event of any inconvenience).
- by avoiding inciting fraud and/or returning any future purchase.
Article 7 – Intellectual Property

14.1 These terms and conditions and the entire contract between Ellebogen® and the affiliate will be exclusively subject to Spanish law, and lawsuits will be brought before the corresponding court in Spain. Both parties expressly acknowledge that this agreement does not have the nature of an agency contract. The application of Law 12/1992, of 27 May, on Agency Contracts, is therefore completely excluded.
This Contract does not give the affiliate any exclusive rights to Ellebogen’s products or services, nor does it restrict Ellebogen’s freedom to recruit other affiliates. It also will not generate, in the Affiliate’s favour, any kind of customer rights, portfolio, compensation or remuneration due to the termination of the contract.
14.2 Any lawsuit, including those seen as such only by one of the parties, which may arise between Ellebogen® and an AFFILIATE under the affiliate programme, and these terms and conditions are applicable in whole or in part, or based on other agreements, as well as other lawsuits related to the contract, legal or factual, will be summoned without exception before the Courts of Donostia-San Sebastián. If the parties fail to reach an agreement, they may, expressly waiving their own jurisdiction, with the exception of Ellebogen, at its sole discretion, initiate proceedings at the courts of the AFFILIATE’s jurisdiction or where they are active.
14.3 All lawsuits will be brought before the competent court to investigate the dispute, always having jurisdiction over the place where the registered office of Ellebogen® is located, except in the event that the applicable legislation regarding that particular case requires it to be presented before a different court, and unless Ellebogen®, as the complainant, chooses to bring the matter in question to the competent court that has jurisdiction over the district in which the affiliate has their registered office.
14.4 If any provision contained in this contract violates the applicable legislation, it will be modified in such a way that it conforms to this legislation, properly taking into account the meaning of the original provision, and it will not affect the validity and effectiveness of those clauses that are not affected.
