2. How to participate in the Ledger Affiliate Program?

Ledger Internal Affiliate Platform

To create your account you need to provide a Bitcoin Address and create a password on the Affiliate Interface.

Note: The Bitcoin Address you provide will be the Bitcoin address to which Ledger will send the rewards. Please be aware that Ledger is not responsible in case of mistake with the Address.

Note: The details you provide are your own responsibility, please contact Impact support for any difficulties.

What extra-documents will be required from You to redeem the reward? The following documents may be requested from you at the moment of the creation of your account or when you chose to receive your compensation:

  • Additional information and documents regarding your residence address or headquarters address (as relevant), on whether or not you are subject to VAT, GST or other sales taxes, and relevant identification number if any, and a copy of identification document, i.e. if you are an individual, official ID or passport, as well as, if address is different in these documents than residence address, a written proof of the residence address, and if you are an entity, a copy of the registration document (KBIS extract or equivalent);
  • Valid invoice in respect of the services performed and duly fulfilled by You. To this end, You will be able to use the example form provided by Ledger, it being understood that this process has been set up solely as a platform intended to facilitate the relationship with Affiliates and to help them with the issuance of their invoices under their control, subject to the completion by themselves of any mandatory information, subject to their corrections of any erroneous information contained in the draft invoice that the helping platform has generated, and subject to their validation of that invoice as containing a true and complete information and as being their invoice. For the avoidance of doubt, it is further specified that it is the responsibility of the Affiliates to add in these invoices all VAT, GST or any other sales tax to be levied under any applicable laws on the affiliation services that Affiliates provide, and to remit such taxes to the appropriate tax authorities in a timely manner and following the proper return process. In no event Ledger is to be considered as having been mandated by the Affiliates to do their invoicing or is in any manner whatsoever to be considered as responsible for the content of the invoices issued by the Affiliates with the help of Ledger’s platform, and it is the responsibility of any Affiliate who would generate its own invoices in its own invoicing system to send these invoices to Ledger on the dedicated invoicing platform. You agree in advance that if Ledger considers the invoice received as invalid, the document generated with the help of Ledger’s platform will be considered by the parties as the invoice received by Ledger from You.

3. How does the Ledger Affiliate Program work?

How do I earn an Affiliate Reward? Once your account is created you can obtain a Link that you will be able to share. By clicking on the Link, the Visitor will be redirected to the Website and a custom “Ledger e-shop”. Once redirected, the Visitor can purchase a Product. If the purchase of the Product becomes a Qualified Affiliation you will be able to claim the Affiliate Reward.

To participate in the Ledger Affiliate Program, You must comply with all the rules set out in articles 4 and 5 of these Terms regarding the Link and the authorized/unauthorized uses.

What is Qualified Affiliation? A Qualified Affiliation is considered valid when a Visitor concludes a payment according to Ledger’s payment instructions. In case the Visitor cancels his order or requests a refund for any legitimate reason, after Ledger paid the Affiliate for its compensations owed in connection with such order, the amounts paid to the Affiliate on the basis of this order will be deducted from the next payments owed to the Affiliate.

What is the reward? For each Qualified Affiliation, you will earn a minimum 10% compensation of the final sales price (after applied discounts, and excluding VAT, GST and similar sales taxes and delivery costs excluded) as actually paid by the Visitor, provided that the payment is requested and the conditions provided for hereafter are satisfied. The compensation rate may be changed by Ledger.

How can I claim and receive my reward? In order to receive the compensation payments for the Qualified Affiliations, you shall:
