Please read our Nordic Oil Affiliate Copyright Note here:
Any violations of the affiliate program terms and conditions will lead to an immediate cancellation of the affiliate partnership and the rejection of all generated orders.
In case of violation of either of the above listed, the competition law or the general data protection regulations, Nordic Oil® reserves the right to terminate all working relationships with the affiliate. Furthermore, Nordic Oil® reserves the right to take legal action for any violations of this agreement and claim compensation for any damages made to the affiliate code of conduct and the Nordic Oil® Brand.
It is the affiliate's sole responsibility to keep up to date with any changes of the T&Cs and ensure that their actions are fully compliant with these at any given time.
These terms also apply for sub- and partner brands of Nordic Oil (e.g. Nordic Cosmetics®).
The payment of the confirmed affiliate commission is made every month, usually in the middle (15th) of each month (+/- 2-3 business days). In order to evaluate all commissions correctly, we need a retroactive time window of at least 45 days to determine the status of the orders (e.g. whether a return/partial return has taken place etc.). The confirmed commission is therefore paid retroactively and only if it reaches a total amount of at least 100 EUR. Any amount below 100 EUR will be deposited as credit in the account.
All orders are displayed in the account of UpPromote as "approved". This is the default setting of the network. However, it does not mean that the order will be paid out or confirmed if, for example, a return takes place. Please see this explained Payout Example
All commissions are tracked and paid in EUR.
Nordic Oil does not accept charges for bank transfers. Please provide your bank information in UpPromote and make sure to fill in all necessary or missing information in your Affiliate Profile.
