Affiliate Terms & Conditions
This agreement will start when we notify you that we have accepted your application to join the Worldcare affiliate program.
By joining this program you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions, which will become a legally binding agreement between you and Worldcare.
1. Website hyperlink
We authorise you as our representative affiliate to refer customers to the Worldcare website by providing a hyperlink to it from your website.
You must comply with any reasonable directions we give you about the placement of banners, the hyperlink and text on your website. This authorisation is non-exclusive and you are not our partner or employee.
You must not do anything in relation to the program that is not expressly authorised under this agreement. Specifically, you must not create any partnership or agency sales relationship with any other person in relation to the program.
Unless otherwise agreed, you do not have authority from us and you are prohibited from making or accepting any offers or representations on our behalf.
2. No recommendations or opinions
You must not provide any recommendations, opinions or endorsements (implied or express) about Worldcare travel insurance products. You may confirm that Worldcare provides the travel insurance and a hyperlink to the Worldcare website where the customer can buy travel insurance.
You must not offer to sell (or imply that you are able to sell) travel insurance products on behalf of Worldcare.
For each Worldcare travel insurance policy issued to a customer who has been referred to the Worldcare website from your website, we will pay you commission calculated as 10% of the Gross Premium.
Commission as calculated is inclusive of goods and services tax (GST) payable on supplies made by you to us.
You have the option during the registration process to contribute part or all of your commission to a discount on the gross premium for your customers.
If a Worldcare travel insurance policy for which commission is payable to you is varied or extended (but not renewed) we will pay you commission on any additional premium.
If a Worldcare travel insurance policy for which commission is payable to you is cancelled by the customer we are entitled to a refund of any commission already paid to you for that policy and we are entitled to offset this commission from any further payments due to you.
We may vary how we calculate commission by giving you 30 days notice in writing. We may increase or reduce the percentage rate of commission or change the way we calculate commission. If you do not agree to the change, you may terminate this agreement by giving us seven days notice in writing.
To qualify for commission, the Worldcare travel insurance policy must be issued over the Worldcare website. Commission is not payable if the Worldcare travel insurance policy is issued over the phone.
We will pay you commission monthly in arrears within 30 days after the end of the month in which the Worldcare travel insurance policy was issued to the customer.
We will adjust any commission paid or payable for refunds on cancellation of the Worldcare travel insurance policy, or commission for variations/extensions. We will deduct (or pay) the adjustment amount in your next commission payment.
Our calculation of your commission and your entitlement to payment depends on the hyperlink to the Worldcare website being operational for us to collect the necessary data. If the hyperlink does not enable us to collect the necessary data you will not be entitled to any commission on any sales.
We will issue a recipient created tax invoice for supplies made by you to us under this agreement and you must not issue a tax invoice for those supplies. You must notify us if you cease to be registered for GST or cease to satisfy the requirements of the Goods and Services Tax Ruling GSTR 2000/10.
5. Banners and resources
We will make available website banners, quote panels, technical support details and other web based resources to support your activities as our representative affiliate. You may use the banners and resources only to provide the hyperlink on your website that links to the Worldcare website. You may only use the banners and resources in a way that's approved by us and you must not alter or tamper with the banners and resources in any way.
We own all intellectual property in the banners and resources, the Worldcare website and the Worldcare trade marks. We grant to you a non-exclusive and non-transferable revocable licence for the duration of this agreement to use these for the purpose of providing the hyperlink on your website. You are not authorised to use the Worldcare trade marks, and you must not use any names or marks that are deceptively similar to or that resemble the Worldcare trade marks.
You are solely responsible for the implementation of all URLs that are linked to the Worldcare website. Once your application is approved, we will send you an email confirmation with banner/s, text links and a tracking URL to monitor your website referral and sales. We will be unable to track your website sales if you make any changes to the tracking URL. You hereby agree that when and if the URL used in tracking sales is modified, erased, corrupted for whatever reason we will not be able to track your website sales and we will not be liable for payment of any commission.
You must not bid on the Worldcare name or trade marks or the Insurer's name or trade marks in any search engine marketing campaigns.

We are not liable for the consequences of any interruptions or error in the Worldcare website or the program.
7. Term and termination
This agreement will commence on the commencement date and will continue until terminated under this clause 7.
Either you or we may terminate this agreement at any time by giving seven days notice in writing without having to give reasons.
