IAP Affiliate Agreement
Before submitting an application to participate in the International Association of Professions Career College (“IAP College”) Affiliate Program (the “Program”), an applicant must read this IAP College Affiliate Agreement (the “Agreement”) in its entirety.
IAP College is a Division of FabJob Inc. (“FabJob”). FabJob produces, owns and sells courses through the IAP College website (www.IAPCollege.com). This Agreement is a binding agreement between the individual or entity submitting the application to become an affiliate (“you” or the “Affiliate”) and FabJob. This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions which you, the Affiliate, agree to be bound by as a participant in the Program and which shall apply once your application to participate in the Program has been accepted by FabJob.
ARTICLE 1 Application to the Program
1.1 Once you have read and agree to be bound by all of the terms of this Agreement, complete and submit an Affiliate Program Application via www.IAPCollege.com. Your application will be reviewed by FabJob and FabJob/IAP College will notify you if you have been accepted into the Program.
1.2 Affiliates must provide the address(es) of the website(s) on which they intend to display information about IAP College courses. Any websites that display any material that may be considered to be pornographic or legally obscene, violent, abusive, harassing, discriminatory in anyway, hateful, libelous, defamatory, promoting illegal activities, violating intellectual property rights, or potentially damaging to IAP College’s or FabJob’s reputation through association will not be considered acceptable for the Program.
ARTICLE 2 IAP College Courses
2.1 FabJob is the owner of all right, title and interest in and to the IAP College courses (including all future courses) on the IAP College website (hereinafter referred to singularly as a “Course” or collectively as the “Courses”).
2.2 FabJob intends to sell the IAP College Courses online using, in part, third party affiliates who will establish links to the IAP College website where the Courses will be offered for sale.
2.3 As FabJob adds additional courses for sale at www.IAPCollege.com, the Affiliate shall have the right to become an affiliate of such courses. Such courses shall be included in the term “Courses” and this Agreement shall also apply to such courses. However, the affiliate shall have no right to sell or receive commissions on any other products or services sold separately through the IAP College website including FabJob textbooks or any IAPO association memberships.
2.4 FabJob shall establish all procedures relating to the sales of the Courses including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the pricing, placement of orders, payment terms, processing, delivery, returns, money back guarantees, etc. FabJob shall have the right to cancel, suspend or delay any order for the Courses including the right to discontinue to sell the Courses at any time.
ARTICLE 3 Participation and Affiliate Links
3.1 Upon acceptance into the Program, FabJob will grant to the Affiliate the non-exclusive and revocable right to promote and market the Courses through the affiliate’s website and to establish a link to IAP College’s website, in accordance with this Agreement.
3.2 All sales of the Courses shall be effected through the IAP College website. All sales proceeds will be payable directly to IAP College.
ARTICLE 4 Payment of Affiliate Commissions
4.1 FabJob will pay the Affiliate a commission of 35% (the “Affiliate Commission”) on sales made by the Affiliate through a link identifying the Affiliate to the IAP College website, less any taxes required to be withheld by law, of the sales price paid and received by IAP College of any Courses sold (excluding any shipping and handling charges, if applicable). In no circumstances shall FabJob be liable to pay an Affiliate Commission to more than one affiliate on any one sale.
4.2 FabJob will set the retail sales price of the Courses sold by IAP College. FabJob reserves the right to adjust the sales price of the Courses as it deems appropriate.
4.3 The Affiliate shall be responsible for all taxes and other similar levies applicable to the Affiliate Commission pursuant to any law or regulation.
4.4 The tracking of Affiliate sales and Affiliate Commissions will be automated by FabJob through the IAP College website. All sales by the Affiliate will be identified electronically.
4.5 Payment of Affiliate Commissions will be made via PayPal.
4.6 Affiliate Commissions will be accumulated monthly based on sales for the particular month (the “Sales Month”). Payment will be made to the Affiliate via PayPal to the email address provided to FabJob by the Affiliate for PayPal payments.
Payment will be made within 45 days following the end of the Sales Month provided that the Affiliate’s accumulated Affiliate Commissions equal U.S. $50.00 or more, or in the case of termination of this Agreement by either FabJob or the Affiliate. If the Affiliate’s accumulated Affiliate Commissions is less than U.S. $50.00 in a month, payment shall be made in a subsequent month once the Affiliates accumulated Affiliate Commissions equal U.S. $50.00 or more. Affiliate Commission overpayments may be deducted by FabJob from future payments or shall be reimbursed by the Affiliate. The Affiliate may receive payment of the Affiliate Commission where the amount in question is less than U.S. $50.00 by requesting FabJob pay same provided that the Affiliate assumes FabJob’s costs of making the payment.
4.7 The Affiliate acknowledges that a sample portion of the Courses, selected by FabJob/IAP College, may be distributed by IAP College at no cost for promotional purposes and there will be no Affiliate Commission paid to the Affiliate with respect to this distribution. In addition, the Affiliate further acknowledges that no Affiliate Commission shall be payable to the Affiliate on any Courses sold through the Affiliate’s website that are refunded pursuant to IAP College’s money back guarantee. If a Course is paid for in part with one or more promotional gift certificates (gift certificates that FabJob/IAP College has distributed free for promotional purposes), the Affiliate Commission will be based on the actual revenue received by IAP College from the sale of that Course (excluding any shipping and handling charges, if applicable).
4.8 Upon request, FabJob will provide to the Affiliate a report of the Affiliate’s sales via email when a monthly payment is made and FabJob will provide any further reasonable information relevant to sales of the Courses upon which the Affiliate’s Affiliate Commissions are based within one month of a request for such information by the Affiliate, provided such request is made within 2 years of the date such Affiliate sale took place.
4.9 The Affiliate accepts the responsibility to provide FabJob with current information concerning the Affiliate’s mailing address and electronic mailbox address for as long as the Affiliate is a member of the Program. The Affiliate must provide FabJob with an email address through the Affiliate’s domain or an Internet Service Provider (not a free, web-based, or email forwarding service). Failure of the Affiliate to provide FabJob with current address information and/or current email address information where the Affiliate may be contacted, shall, after one year of FabJob becoming aware of inaccurate information, result in the accumulated proceeds from the Affiliate’s Affiliate Commissions being donated to a charity of FabJob’s choice. If the Affiliate subsequently notifies FabJob of their address change, FabJob shall resume the payment of Affiliate Commissions to the Affiliate, beginning with the Affiliate Commissions accruing for the month in which such notification is given to FabJob. In such a case, FabJob shall not be responsible to pay retroactive Affiliate Commissions to the Affiliate.
ARTICLE 5 Affiliate’s Website
5.1 The Affiliate shall be solely responsible for all materials that appear on its website. The Affiliate shall strictly adhere to all applicable laws and regulations in conducting its business and more specifically in promoting, advertising and marketing the Courses. Without restricting the generality of the foregoing, the Affiliate shall not send unsolicited e-mail (or spam) and shall not send e-mail or any other communication to a recipient if the recipient has requested that it discontinue such communication, nor shall it send or display on its website any material that may be considered to be sexually explicit, legally obscene or pornographic, violent, threatening, abusive, harassing, discriminatory in any way, hateful, libelous, defamatory, promoting illegal activities or violating intellectual property rights.
5.2 FabJob shall have the right to monitor the Affiliate’s website at any time and from time to time to determine if it is in compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If the Affiliate’s website is determined by FabJob at any point in time to be unsuitable for the Program, FabJob may terminate this Agreement forthwith.
5.3 The Affiliate may have limited use of the FabJob and IAP College logo and trademarks to promote IAP College and/or the Courses on the Affiliate’s website. FabJob shall have the right, but not the obligation, to approve the graphics, trademarks and logos used on the Affiliate’s website.

ARTICLE 6 Goodwill Preservation
6.1 FabJob shall have the right, but not the obligation, to approve, in its sole and absolute discretion, any marketing, promotional or advertising items used by the Affiliate in connection with the sale of the Courses.
