Welcome to the ‘Powered by Ninety’ Affiliate Program
Ninety.io operates software as a service (SaaS) that enables customers to leverage a collection of cloud-based business building and awareness tools, helping them build extraordinarily productive, humane and resilient companies. The “Powered by Ninety Affiliate Program” or “Px90” provides affiliates with specific training and resources about Ninety.io to encourage and enable participation in the Px90 Program (as described below).
To be eligible to participate as a Px90 Affiliate, you must review and accept this Px90 Affiliate Agreement (this “Agreement”) by clicking on the “Submit” button or other mechanism provided. PLEASE REVIEW THESE TERMS CAREFULLY. BY ACCEPTING THIS AGREEMENT OR PARTICIPATING IN THE Px90 AFFILIATE PROGRAM, YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS WITH NINETY. (“NINETY” OR “WE”). IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS, YOU SHOULD NOT CLICK THE “SUBMIT” BUTTON AND YOU SHOULD NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE Px90 AFFILIATE PROGRAM.
If you are registering as a Px90 affiliate in your individual capacity, then references to “Affiliate” or “you” herein refer to you. If you are registering as a Powered by Ninety.io affiliate on behalf of an entity or other organization, you are agreeing to this Agreement for that entity or organization and representing to Powered by Ninety that you have the authority to bind that entity or organization to this Agreement (and, in which case, references to “Affiliate” or “you” herein refer to that entity or organization).
- NINETY DOES NOT PROVIDE WARRANTIES OR INDEMNITIES HEREUNDER, AND THESE TERMS LIMIT NINETY’S LIABILITY TO YOU.
- DISPUTES RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, YOUR ACCOUNT OR NINETY MUST BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION AND ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS ONLY.
We may modify any of the terms and conditions within this Agreement at any time and at our sole discretion. These modifications may include without limitation changes in the scope of available referral fees, fee schedules, payment procedures and program rules. If any of the modifications are unacceptable to you, your only recourse is to terminate this Agreement. If you continue participation in the program, it will be considered as your acceptance of the modifications. Subject to the foregoing, no amendment or modification to this Agreement, nor any waiver of any rights hereunder, will be effective unless assented to in writing by both parties.
2. Enrollment & Set-up
60-Day Set-up Period:
The first 60 days of enrollment (defined as 60 calendar days following partner acceptance of terms and conditions) are considered the set-up period where it is the responsibility of the affiliate partner to confirm their existing client referrals (referrals pre-dating the affiliate partnership) via email@example.com. Once the 60 day window has closed, no retro payments for missing client referrals will be processed.
30-Day Client Connection Period:
For new clients who join Ninety outside of the 60 day set-up window, the affiliate partner has 30 days from account creation to get the client added to PartnerStack to avoid missed rewards. No retroactive rewards will be given outside of the 30 day window.
Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Ninety hereby grants Affiliate a non-exclusive license during the term of this Agreement to display one or more links specifically assigned to Affiliate (whether in the form of text, or a logo or other graphic) provided to Affiliate by Px90 (the “Affiliate Link” or “Link”), which will link to your Affiliate URL (as defined below), in a manner consistent with Ninety.s trademark policies promulgated from time to time. If Ninety objects to the manner in which Affiliate displays the Link or any other content relating to Ninety or its software or services, Affiliate will remedy the issue in the manner requested by Ninety as soon as reasonably practicable. All use of Ninety’s name or its other trademarks will insure to the sole benefit of Ninety. Affiliate agrees to comply with any referral or opportunity registration process that Ninety may promulgate from time to time.
4. Affiliate URL
You will be issued a special URL (“Affiliate URL”) once you become an approved member of the Px90 Affiliate Program which will be unique to you and you only, and will allow you to be automatically registered for affiliate referrals. Additional Links may be generated that serve the same purpose but are separately tracked.
Affiliate will receive the percentage of Net Revenue (as defined below) received by Ninety, as set forth below:
For customers that first sign-up for Ninety via your valid Affiliate Link and then become a paying client by entering their credit card, a percentage of Net Revenue received for the lifetime of the account (unless affiliate transition occurs, see section 7), is payable on a monthly basis upon receipt of such Net Revenue by Ninety.
“Net Revenue” means license fees received by Ninety.io from a referred customer through a valid Affiliate Link (for clarity, excluding consulting, integration or other professional services), discounts, commissions, taxes, refunds and the like.
For example, if the then-applicable commission percentage were 20%, a monthly license fee of $99 would result in an affiliate payment of $19.80.
Commissions earned by Affiliate may vary. Please reach out to Parnter@ninety.io to confirm your commission percentage.
For a sale to generate a commission to Affiliate, the customer must click through your Affiliate URL and sign-up for Ninety.io, becoming a paying client before the end of their 30-day trial period, by entering their credit card. Word of mouth referrals will not result in an affiliate commission being generated, except as otherwise agreed upon by Ninety.io in its sole discretion. 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 Affiliate. For clarity, and without limitation, referrals and Net Revenues collected as follows or in any of the following situations will not qualify for a commission hereunder:
- from third parties that were already customers of Ninety at the time of sign-up;
- from third parties that were referred to Ninety previously by you or any person or entity related to you;
- from referrals of yourself;
- from referrals in violation of this Agreement; or
- if you have a marketing or consulting relationship with Ninety for which you receive any compensation.
Ninety may utilize third party payment processors or service providers in order to facilitate payments under the Px90 affiliate program. Affiliate is solely responsible for keeping its recipient address for the payment processor used by Ninety current. Ninety will have no liability for, and will not resend payments returned due to incorrect payment email addresses. Payments will be made within forty five (45) days after the end of the month in which the corresponding amounts are collected by Ninety.
7. Customer Relationship & Affiliate Transitions
Customers who sign-up for Ninety through Px90 Affiliate Links will be deemed to be customers of that Px90 Affiliate (the originating Affiliate). If the Affiliate relationship changes, and the customer is no longer working with the originating Affiliate, but has not engaged with a new Affiliate, the originating Affiliate remains as the Affiliate for that customer. If the Affiliate relationship changes and the customer engages with a new Px90 Affiliate, the new/transitioning Affiliate will become the Affiliate for that customer upon request. It will be the responsibility of the new/transitioning Affiliate to inform Ninety.io, through partner@Ninety.io, to become the Affiliate for that customer. Payment to the new/transitioning Affiliate will commence at the next earliest billing cycle for that customer.
We may change our policies, pricing structure and/or operating procedures at any time and at our sole discretion.
8. Qualifying Sites
Ninety reserves the right to refuse any site entry into the Px90 Affiliate Program based on site content. Affiliate will not place any Links on any sites that do not qualify for or are otherwise refused for the Affiliate Program. Sites that do not qualify for the Affiliate Program include, but are not limited to, sites which:
- Promote sexually explicit materials

- Promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age
- Promote illegal activities
- List coupon codes or discounts that were not officially provided to them by Ninety.

Ninety may investigate any Affiliate conduct and, at its sole discretion and with or without cause or prior notice, terminate this Agreement. In addition, Affiliate will indemnify and hold harmless Ninety against any liability arising from Affiliate’s breach of any obligation, representation or warranty of Affiliate under this Agreement.

The parties are independent contractors, and nothing in this Agreement will create any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative, or employment relationship between the parties. Affiliate has no authority to make or accept any offers or representations on our behalf. Affiliate will not make any statement, whether on its sites or otherwise, that reasonably would contradict the foregoing.
13. Disclosure of Affiliate Relationship

14. Term and Termination
The term of this Agreement will begin when you accept and will end when terminated by either party. Either Ninety or Affiliate may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause, upon written notice to the other (which notice may be sent by email (1) in the case of notices from Ninety to you, to the email address associated with your account, or (2) in the case of notices from you to Ninety.io, to partner@Ninety.io). Upon the termination of this Agreement for any reason, all licenses granted hereunder shall immediately terminate and you will immediately cease use of, and remove from all of Affiliate's sites, all links to the Ninety.io websites (including all Links), and all Ninety.io trademarks and logos, other Ninety.io marks and all other materials provided in connection with this Agreement. Termination results in the immediate closure of the Affiliate’s account and, if Affiliate breaches any term or condition of this Agreement, the loss of all rights regarding referrals and the forfeiture of any unpaid commissions. In addition, upon termination, all rights and obligations will immediately terminate except that any terms or conditions that by their nature should survive such termination will survive, including terms and conditions relating to intellectual property rights and confidentiality, disclaimers, indemnification, limitations of liability and termination, arbitration, class action waivers and the miscellaneous provisions below.
15. Limitation of Liability
NINETY.IO WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (OR ANY LOSS OF REVENUE, PROFITS, EXPENDITURES OR DATA) ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE PROGRAM, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. FURTHER, OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING WITH RESPECT TO THIS AGREEMENT AND THE PROGRAM WILL NOT EXCEED THE TOTAL COMMISSIONS PAID OR PAYABLE TO THE AFFILIATE UNDER TO THIS AGREEMENT IN THE TWELVE(12) MONTHS PRECEDING THE DATE THE CLAIM AROSE.
NINETY.IO HEREBY DISCLAIMS ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING THE NINETY.IO SITE AND PRODUCTS, ANY LINKS, THE AFFILIATE PROGRAM OR AN AFFILIATE'S POTENTIAL TO EARN INCOME FROM THE AFFILIATE PROGRAM, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT AND/OR WARRANTIES ARISING FROM ANY COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE.

NINETY.IO WILL MAKE REASONABLE EFFORTS TO TRACK AND PAY COMMISSIONS TO AFFILIATE. HOWEVER, NINETY.IO IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR TECHNICAL PROBLEMS, ACTS BY THIRD PARTIES, OR OTHER INACCURACIES OR EVENTS OUTSIDE NINETY.IO’S REASONABLE CONTROL.
17. Proprietary Information
Affiliate acknowledges that, in connection with this Agreement or the Affiliate Program, it may obtain business, technical or financial information relating to Ninety.io (“Proprietary Information”). Affiliate and its employees and agents shall, at all times, both during the term of this Agreement and after its termination, keep in trust and confidence all such Proprietary Information, and shall not use such Proprietary Information other than in the course of its duties as expressly provided in this Agreement; nor shall Affiliate or its employees or agents disclose any such Proprietary Information to any person without Ninety.io’s prior written consent. Affiliate shall not be bound by this Section with respect to information it can document has entered or later enters the public domain as a result of no act or omission of Affiliate, or is lawfully received by Affiliate from third parties without restriction and without breach of any duty of nondisclosure by any such third party.
18. Agreement to Arbitrate; Class Action Waiver
You and Ninety.io agree to resolve any dispute arising under this Agreement by binding arbitration in the State of Delaware, or in another location that both parties agree to. This applies to all claims under any legal theory, unless the claim fits in one of the exceptions below. It also applies even after termination of this Agreement. If the parties have a dispute about whether this agreement to arbitrate can be enforced or applies to such dispute, the parties agree that the arbitrator will decide that too.
You and Ninety.io agree that the parties will go to court to resolve disputes relating to your or Ninety.io’s intellectual property (e.g., trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights or patents). Also, either party can bring a claim in small claims court either in Delaware or the county where you live, or some other place both parties agree on, if it qualifies to be brought in that court. In addition, if either party brings a claim in court that should be arbitrated or either party refuses to arbitrate a claim that should be arbitrated, the other party can ask a court to force the parties to go to arbitration to resolve the claim (i.e., compel arbitration). Either party may also ask a court to halt a court proceeding while an arbitration proceeding is ongoing.
Prior to filing any arbitration, both parties jointly agree to seek to resolve any dispute between the parties by mediation conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), with all mediator fees and expenses paid equally by the parties. If mediation is not successful, either party may initiate an arbitration proceeding with AAA. You can look at AAA’s rules and procedures on their website http://www.adr.org or you can call them at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration will be governed by the then-current version of AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules (the "Rules") and will be held with a single arbitrator appointed in accordance with the Rules. To the extent anything described in this agreement to arbitrate conflicts with the Rules, the language of this agreement to arbitrate applies.
Each party will be entitled to get a copy of non-privileged relevant documents in the possession or control of the other party and to take a reasonable number of depositions. All such discovery will be in accordance with procedures approved by the arbitrator. This agreement to arbitrate does not alter in any way the statute of limitations that would apply to any claims or counterclaims asserted by either party.
The arbitrator’s award will be based on the evidence admitted and the substantive law of the State of Delaware and the United States, as applicable, and will contain an award for each issue and counterclaim. The award will provide in writing the factual findings and legal reasoning for such award. The arbitrator will not be entitled to modify this Agreement.
Except as provided in the Federal Arbitration Act, the arbitration award will be final and binding on the parties. Judgment may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Our failure to enforce your strict performance of any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of our right to subsequently enforce such provision or any other provision of this Agreement. Neither party shall have any right or ability to assign, transfer, or sublicense any obligations or benefit under this Agreement without the written consent of the other (and any such attempt shall be void), except that Ninety.io may assign this Agreement to any third party who succeeds to substantially all its related business or assets. This Agreement contains the entire understanding of the parties regarding its subject matter and can only be modified or waived by a subsequent written agreement signed by both parties.
If any of the provisions of this Agreement are determined by a court to be unenforceable, they shall be severed from this Agreement, and the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect.
Any dispute or claim arising out of this Agreement or related thereto (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Delaware without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provisions or rules.
By signing up with the Px90 Affiliate Program, you acknowledge that you have read this agreement and agree to all its terms and conditions. You have independently evaluated this program and are not relying on any representation, guarantee or statement other than as set forth in this agreement.
