Raidboxes Affiliate Conditions of Participation
We are very pleased that you are interested in our Raidboxes affiliate programme. Here are our current terms and conditions for your start as an Raidboxes affiliate partner.
§ 1 Scope of application
These conditions of participation apply between the registered user and Raidboxes GmbH.
The conditions of participation are aimed at both entrepreneurs and consumers, provided that they are at least 18 years old and have full legal capacity, as defined by the German Civil Code. Please note that the income generated by the program must be declared for tax purposes and that you alone are responsible for this.
2. Subject matter of the contract
The subject of this agreement is the participation in the affiliate partner program, which is intended to increase the sale of our products via our website. The participation in the partner program is free of charge for you.
For the promotion and successful brokerage of transactions (e.g. orders), you receive a brokerage commission that depends on the selected contract of the end customer. Information on commissions can be found here.
The Partner Program does not establish any other contractual relationship between the Parties beyond the scope of this Agreement.
§ 3 Advertising media and online advertising media
An advertising medium enables a link between your online advertising medium and Raidboxes by means of a hyperlink, via which visitors to your site who click on the respective advertising medium are taken to the Raidboxes website.
The formats and the design of the advertising material are defined and provided solely by Raidboxes and may not be changed.
§ 4 Registration/Conclusion of Contract
The use of our affiliate network is only possible after prior registration in our Dashboard. You can then submit an offer to participate in our Partner Program by writing to us or calling us. By submitting your offer, we may assume that you have read and accepted these conditions of participation. A contract is only concluded when we declare acceptance of the offer by activating you as an affiliate.
The data entered during registration must be truthful. In the event that these details change, you are obliged to correct the entries immediately. If incorrect information is provided during registration or if a correction is omitted, you can be excluded from further use of our affiliate program.
There is no entitlement to participate in the partner program and to conclude a contract with us. We can reject individual partners at any time without giving reasons. In particular, we reserve the right to terminate already activated affiliate partners at any time without observing a period of notice.
You will receive a performance-related commission from us.
The claim for payment of the remuneration arises under the following conditions:
- Your advertising activity has resulted in a Box contract between an end customer and us,
- the sale has been recorded ("tracked") by us
- the sale has been released and confirmed by us and
- there is no abuse within the meaning of § 8 of these Conditions of Participation.
A sale shall be deemed to be an order placed in full on our website by an end customer which has also been paid for in full by the end customer. Reversals - for whatever reason - shall not be deemed to be a sale if the end customer has not paid or if payments made by the end customer are refunded. The end customer must continue to be an active customer of ours for a fixed period of time depending on the respective commission model (minimum customer retention). Orders placed by yourself, your relatives or employees of Raidboxes GmbH are not subject to remuneration.
The amount of remuneration depends on the contract tariff selected by the end customer and your affiliate partner level. You can view the underlying table here.
All commissions stated are net and are paid plus VAT. You alone are responsible for the proper taxation of the income as well as the payment of postsfor social security. For possible additional claims by a public authority resulting from false information provided by the partner, Raidboxes will claim for reimbursement.
Only the first contract concluded by the end customer is remunerated. If this contract does not meet the minimum customer retention requirement, the claim shall be forfeited.
- If the contract selected by the end customer is upgraded within the minimum customer retention period, a payout takes place, but at the conditions of the contract first concluded.
- If the contract selected by the end customer is downgraded within the minimum customer retention period, a payout takes place, but at the conditions of the downgraded contract.
The right to payment of a commission expires after one year.
§ 6 Settlement
Provided that you have successfully referred us, you are entitled to a payout claim within the scope of a reimbursement of advertising costs. The credit created in the process will be sent to you via e-mail as a PDF file to your stored email address. This statement must be checked immediately. If there are objections to a settlement, these must be made to us in writing within four weeks. After this period has expired, the statement of account shall be deemed correct.
Claims for remuneration shall become due for payment one month after the expiry of the minimum customer commitment at the latest.
The payment is made by bank transfer or PayPal payment with debt-discharging effect to the bank details stored in the customer account or your PayPal account. Any fees (e.g. for bank accounts abroad, PayPal fees) shall be borne by you.
The statement is drawn up on the 15th of each month and paid out immediately thereafter.
§ 7 Our duties
We provide you with a selection of advertising media (e.g. advertising banners, text links and images) at our discretion.
We will track in an appropriate manner the visitors who come to our website through the advertising material you have integrated on your website and assign them to your account.
We operate our website and the services offered on it, such as the provision of product data, at our own discretion within the framework of the technical possibilities available to us.

In the event of a claim for alleged or actual infringement and/or violation of third party rights by actions taken by the partner in connection with the Partner Program , Raidboxes, as well as all employees, shall be exempt from all third party claims. All costs incurred by us as a result of such a claim by a third party are to be reimbursed by you. Reimbursable costs also include the costs of a reasonable legal defence.
Should you violate an abuse regulation according to § 8 of these participation obligations, you are obliged to pay a contractual penalty to be determined by us at our reasonable discretion and to be reviewed by a court in the event of a dispute. Further claims for damages remain unaffected by this provision.

The cancellation can be made by email. We can also declare the termination by restricting access to the customer account. The partner may also declare the termination by deleting the customer account. The contract is terminated upon receipt of the notice of termination.
After termination of the contract, all advertising material and other links and content from us must be removed from your partner website immediately. This also applies to websites or other advertising media in which the advertising material or links have been integrated without having been authorized to do so.
Leads and/or sales generated after the termination of the contract do not lead to a payment obligation.
§ 14 Final provisions
Should the contract contain ineffective regulations, the effectiveness of the rest of the contract remains unaffected.
We reserve the right to adapt these conditions of participation at any time. Any changes will be communicated to the Partner by email. If you do not agree with the changes, you are entitled to inform us of this within four weeks of receipt of the notification of change. We have a special right of termination in this case. If no such notification is made within that period, the amendments shall be deemed to have been accepted and shall enter into force on expiry of the period.
German law is exclusively applicable to the present contract.
If the partner is a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, Münster is agreed as the place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from or in connection with contracts between us and the partner.
