Ambassador/Affiliate Program Policy
Thanks for considering our Brand Ambassador Program! Since the Internet is a wild place and we don’t know every one of our brand ambassadors super personally, we’ve created some terms to set everyone’s expectations.
PLEASE READ THIS DOCUMENT IN ITS ENTIRETY BEFORE AGREEING TO BECOME OR TO CONTINUE AS A Cloudy BRAND AMBASSADOR.
When we say “Company,” “Cloudy,” “we,” “our,” or “us” in this document, we are referring to Hive Endeavors, LLC.
When we say “Products,” we mean any product created by Cloudy.
When we say “Ambassador”, “you” or “your,” we are referring to the individual who wishes to be a Cloudy brand ambassador, and his or her employees, agents and business affiliates (as applicable).
We sometimes refer to Ambassador and Company individually as a “Party” or collectively as the “Parties.”

THESE TERMS WILL GOVERN YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH Cloudy AND YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE Cloudy BRAND AMBASSADOR PROGRAM (THE “PROGRAM”).

IF AT ANY TIME YOU NO LONGER WISH TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS, YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY PROVIDE WRITTEN NOTICE TO Cloudy AND CEASE ACTING AS A BRAND AMBASSADOR.

Cloudy reserves the unconditional right to deny or terminate an Ambassador. It is understood and agreed that by becoming an Ambassador, Cloudy is under no obligation to provide you with any free Product. Ambassador is responsible for purchasing any Product in order to fulfill your obligations under the Terms.
In exchange for certain compensation, products and/or experiences, and other good and valuable consideration (the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged), you agree to use your best efforts to market and promote the Products and Cloudy brand on your Accounts (the “Services”), subject to these Terms.
By accepting these Terms, you agree to perform the following Services:
- Create and post photo, video and/or written content promoting Cloudy, Products and/or any related campaigns or services as Cloudy may request from time to time (“Content”). For avoidance of any doubt, Content includes any and all content, posts, photos, videos, pictures, writings, or any other work product that you create as part of the Services or otherwise related to the work product you create for Cloudy or at Cloudy’s request.

20% net commission on all sales by third parties generated using your Promo Code, subject to change by the Company at any time.
Commissions may be paid out upon request, as long as your commissions earned are at least ten dollars ($10) (in other words, your commission may be paid out as soon as it reaches $10). You may request payout of your commission no more than once daily. Commissions paid on a daily basis will be based on the previous day’s sales. Commissions will not be paid based on any sales or amounts for any returned Product or any orders that Cloudy, in its sole discretion, determines to be attributed to spam, credit card fraud, unauthorized use of your Promo Code, unauthorized use of Cloudy’s trademarks, copyrights, logos or other intellectual property, or use of any unauthorized claims. If a sale is canceled or refunded for any reason, any paid commission will be deducted from the amount Cloudy owes to you and any subsequent payout of your commissions. Commissions are counted and final numbers are deemed final at the sole discretion and decision of Cloudy. Cloudy also reserves the right to change the frequency and dates of your commission payouts.
You should clearly advise your followers/customers to use your Promo Code to purchase Cloudy Products in order for you to receive commissions. While Cloudy makes every reasonable effort to accurately track and pay commissions for all Ambassador sales, Cloudy is not responsible for and will not be held liable for any technical difficulties, outside events, actions by other ambassadors, or other uncontrollable events that may disrupt or interfere with Cloudy’s ability to track sales or pay commissions. Cloudy has the right to pay commissions to any other person, in its sole discretion.
You are solely responsible for any and all tax obligations, if any, due to any taxing authorities arising from or in connection with commissions paid to you by Cloudy in connection with the Program. Cloudy reserves the right to withhold payment pending an investigation of suspected fraud or misrepresentation of associated commissions for orders or referrals that were obtained fraudulently or through misrepresentation.
