OMNISCAPE Rights and Obligations
We have the right to monitor your site and social media accounts at any time to determine if you are following the terms and conditions of this Agreement. We may notify you of any changes to your site or social media that we feel should be made, or to make sure that your links to our web site are appropriate and to notify you further of any changes that we feel should be made. If you do not make the changes to your site that we feel are necessary, we reserve the right to terminate your participation in the OMNISCAPE™ Affiliate Program.
Transmira reserves the right to terminate this Agreement and your participation in the OMNISCAPE™ Affiliate Program immediately and without notice to you should you commit fraud in your use of the OMNISCAPE™ Affiliate Program or should you abuse this program in any way. If such fraud or abuse is detected, Transmira shall not be liable to you for any commissions for such fraudulent sales.
This Agreement will begin upon our acceptance of your Affiliate application and will continue unless terminated hereunder.
Customers who buy products through this Program will be deemed to be our customers. Accordingly, all of our rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service, and product sales will apply to those customers. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. For example, we will determine the prices to be charged for products sold under this Program in accordance with our own pricing policies. Product prices and availability may vary from time to time. Because price changes may affect Products that you have listed on your site, you should not display product prices on your site. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to present accurate information, but we cannot guarantee the availability or price of any particular product.
You will receive commission for Qualified Referrals to OMNISCAPE™. The percentage and type of commission may change at any time and without notice.
“Qualified Referrals” mean customers referred by you to OMNISCAPE™ who: (1) click on your unique tracking link; (2) within ninety (90) days of clicking on your unique tracking link, successfully purchase and remit payment for an OMNISCAPE product; and (3) maintain an active account.
Affiliates who share the same personal/company details, including but not limited to, last name, email address, IP address, website details, or commission payment details, as their referred customer will be deemed to have made a “Self-Referral.” Referral commission and any earnings associated with this type of “Self-Referral” will not be paid. Transmira, in its sole discretion, will determine the classification of any referral as a “Self-Referral.”
Referrals made to current OMNISCAPE™ customers will be considered “Current Customer Referrals” and referral commission and any earnings associated with Current Customer Referrals will begin accruing after the referral was made. You will not receive referral commission for a Current Customer Referral for any payments the customer made to OMNISCAPE before the referral. Transmira, in its sole discretion, will determine the classification of any referral as a “Current Customer Referral.”
For a sale to generate a commission to an Affiliate, the customer must complete the order form and remit full payment for the product. Commissions will only be paid on sales that are made when the customer clicks through qualified, correctly structured Affiliate links. Properly coded links are the sole responsibility of the affiliate. Commissions can be viewed on the Affiliate Dashboard in the Affiliate Area on omniscape.com.
For a Product sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must click-through a Special Link from your site, email, or other communications to a Product Site and sign up for the product during that session. The session ends once someone closes their web browser, navigates away from the Product Site, or otherwise leaves the Product Site without signing up for a product before leaving the site. If they leave the site without making a purchase, you will not earn a commission. If the customer is already designated as a referral of another Affiliate, you will not earn a commission. Customers must click through your affiliate link and complete a purchase to be designated as your referral, otherwise they may come back later on their own, and then purchase a product, you will not earn a commission.
If the Affiliate is on a one-time payment option, they will receive a commission for each new signup.
If the Affiliate is on a recurring payment schedule, they will continue to accumulate commissions for each paid transaction by the customer for as long as the customer remains a paying customer. For Affiliates participating in the recurring program, commissions will also accumulate for plan upgrades if offered.
The current commission chart may be found at: https://www.omniscape.com/affiliate/affiliate-program The commission structure is subject to change at our discretion. We will notify all Affiliates in advance to a commission structure change. Commissions earned under the previous structure will be paid under the previous structure. Commissions under the new structure will be paid under the new structure.
We will only pay commissions on links that are automatically tracked and reported by our systems. We will not pay commissions if someone says they signed up or someone says they entered a referral code if it was not tracked by our system. We can only pay commissions on business generated through properly formatted special links that were automatically tracked by our systems.
We reserve the right to disqualify commissions earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods.
Payments are only made via PayPal.
As long as your current affiliate earning are over $100, you’ll be paid roughly every 45 days. If you haven’t earned $100 since your last payment, we’ll pay you roughly 45 days after you’ve crossed the threshold. Commissions earned on referrals become payable and added to your earnings 30 days after the referred customer becomes a Qualified Referral.
If your affiliate account never crosses the $100 threshold, your commissions will not be realized or paid. We are only responsible for paying accounts that have crossed the $100 threshold.
If at any time a Qualified Referral files a credit card dispute, any earned Affiliate commission on the disputed charge shall become frozen in your account until the dispute is settled. You will not receive any interest on commissions that have been frozen. If the dispute is settled in Transmira’s favor, any associated earned Affiliate commission will become payable to you. If the dispute is settled in the Qualified Referral’s favor, any associated earned Affiliate commission shall not be paid to you. If commissions have already been paid out to you, the amount of earned commissions on the disputed charges shall be debited to your account.
Commission payments will be paid in US Dollars and only via Paypal. You are responsible for paying all applicable fees associated with accepting payments, including but not limited to, currency conversion fees, transaction fees, withdrawal fees, deposit fees, and other related fees. Commissions are generally paid out on the last Thursday or Friday of each month, subject to change at our discretion based on the month, holidays, or other events that may delay payments.
In order to receive payments for earned commissions, you must provide Transmira a completed Form W-8, Form W-9, or other applicable form as instructed by Transmira. You will be deemed to have permanently waived all rights to Commissions that were earned more than 120 days before submitting a completed the appropriate form to Transmira. You are responsible for any and all tax liabilities, including, without limitation, income tax liabilities, that arise from or in any way relate to any commissions paid out to you by Transmira.
Transmira reserves the right to request documentation in order to approve your account. These requests may be made during the OMNISCAPE™ Affiliate Program application process or at any time while you have an active account in the Affiliate Program. If requests for documentation are not responded to in a timely manner, Transmira reserves the right to terminate, deactivate, or not approve your account.
We have a strict no refunds policy.
However, in the event a refund must be made due to a dispute or other valid reason for a transaction for which the Affiliate has earned commissions, any commissions earned on the refund amount will be deducted from the Affiliate’s balance.
Payments by Paypal
Commissions are paid by PayPal and only by PayPal. We cannot send checks, credit cards, or send cash. You are required to have a PayPal account to receive commissions. If you don’t have a PayPal account you can sign up for one at any time, but you will not be paid until you have one.
You shall bear your own costs and expenses related to marketing and promoting OMNISCAPE™ and/or the OMNISCAPE™ Affiliate Program. Transmira is not obligated to reimburse or credit you for any marketing expenses. If Transmira does reimburse you for any marketing expenses, such reimbursement shall not create a duty or obligation to reimburse any future marketing expenses.

- Affiliates shall not use malware or spyware to market or promote Transmira or OMNISCAPE™ Services or Products.
You are free to promote your own web sites, but naturally any promotion that mentions OMNISCAPE™ or Omniscape.com could be perceived by the public or the press as a joint effort. You should know that certain forms of advertising are always prohibited by Omniscape.com. For example, advertising commonly referred to as “spamming” is unacceptable to us and could cause damage to our name.
Other generally prohibited forms of advertising include the use of unsolicited commercial email (UCE), postings to non-commercial newsgroups and cross-posting to multiple newsgroups at once. In addition, you may not advertise in any way that effectively conceals or misrepresents your identity, your domain name, or your return email address. You may use mailings to customers to promote Omniscape.com so long as the recipient is already a customer or subscriber of your services or web site, and recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings. Also, you may post to newsgroups to promote Omniscape.com so long as the news group specifically welcomes commercial messages.
At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your web sites as independent from Omniscape.com. If it comes to our attention that you are spamming, we will consider that cause for immediate termination of this Agreement and your participation in the OMNISCAPE™ Affiliate Program. Any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.
Affiliates that among other keywords or exclusively bid in their Pay-Per-Click campaigns on keywords such as Omniscape.com, Omniscape, www.omniscape, www.omniscape.com, and/or any misspellings or similar variations or alterations of these – be it separately or in combination with other keywords – and do not direct the traffic from such campaigns to their own website prior to re-directing it to ours, will be considered trademark violators, and will be banned from Transmira’s OMNISCAPE™ Affiliate Program. We will do everything possible to contact the affiliate prior to the ban. However, we reserve the right to expel any trademark violator from our affiliate program without prior notice, and on the first occurrence of such PPC bidding behavior.
Affiliate shall not transmit any so-called “interstitials,” “parasiteware,” “parasitic marketing,” “shopping assistance application,” “toolbar installations and/or add-ons,” “shopping wallets” or “deceptive pop-ups and/or pop-unders” to consumers from the time the consumer clicks on a qualifying link until such time as the consumer has fully exited OMNISCAPE’s site (i.e., no page from our site or any omniscape.com’s content or branding is visible on the end-user’s screen).
As used herein a. “parasiteware™” and “parasitic marketing” shall mean an application that (a) through accidental or direct intent causes the overwriting of affiliate and non-affiliate commission tracking cookies through any other means than a customer initiated click on a qualifying link on a web page or email; (b) intercepts searches to redirect traffic through an installed software, thereby causing pop ups or commission tracking cookies to be put in place, or other commission tracking cookies to be overwritten; (c) set commission tracking cookies through loading of the OMNISCAPE™ site in IFrames, hidden links and automatic pop ups that open omniscape.com’s site; (d) targets text on web sites, other than those web sites 100% owned by the application owner, for the purpose of contextual marketing; (e) removes, replaces or blocks the visibility of Affiliate banners with any other banners, other than those that are on web sites 100% owned by the owner of the application.

You are permitted to place links, banners, or other graphics we may provide with your Affiliate Code on your site, in your emails, or in other communications. We may change the design of the artwork at any time without notice, but we won’t change the dimensions of the images without proper notice.
To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and referral fee accrual, we will provide you with special link formats to be used in all links between your site and social media accounts and the OMNISCAPE™. You must ensure that each of the links between your site and omniscape.com properly utilizes such special link formats. Links to OMNISCAPE™ placed on your site or social media accounts pursuant to this Agreement and which properly utilize such special link formats are referred to as “Special Links.” You will earn referral fees only with respect to sign-ups on omniscape.com occurring directly through Special Links; we will not be liable to you with respect to any failure by you or someone you refer to use Special Links or incorrectly type your Affiliate Code, including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction of amounts that would otherwise be paid to you pursuant to this Agreement.

The Terms of Service constitutes the entire agreement between you and Transmira and govern your use of the Service, superseding any prior agreements between you and Transmira (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms of Service).
