One of the most common questions we get asked is the ownership, privacy, and security of content submitted on the site for a new venture. To be clear, if you add content about a venture of yours, that content - at all times and for any/all steps of the framework - is owned by you and protected by industry-standard web hosting and security practices.
In addition, you must be at least eighteen years of age to use our site and agree to be personally responsible for your use of the site, and not use the site in any manner that is either unlawful or unethical. If you cannot agree to any portion of this Policy, please refrain from using the site.
We expressly reserve the right to update this Policy at any time and without notice. If you sign-up for service on the Site, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with the account; you may not license, sublicense, sell, resell, rent, lease, transfer, assign, distribute, time share or otherwise commercially exploit or make the service available to any third party. You are responsible for all information, data, text, messages or other materials that you post or otherwise transmit via the service. You agree and acknowledge that your login may only be used by one (1) person. You are responsible for all content posted and activity that occurs under your account even when content is posted by others who have accounts under your account. Optional paid services may be available on the Site (any such services, an "Upgrade"). By selecting an Upgrade you agree to pay Startup Rocket the fee indicated for that service. Payments will be charged on a pre-pay basis on the day you sign up for an Upgrade and will cover the use of that service for a monthly or annual subscription period as indicated. Upgrade fees are not refundable. Unless you notify Startup Rocket before the end of the applicable subscription period that you want to cancel an Upgrade, your Upgrade subscription will automatically renew and you authorize us to collect the then-applicable monthly subscription fee for such Upgrade (as well as any taxes) using any credit card. Upgrades can be canceled at any time in the Upgrades section of your site’s dashboard. Startup Rocket may terminate your access to all or any part of the Site at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately. If you wish to terminate this Agreement or your account (if you have one), you may simply discontinue using the Site.

When you register for the Service, or when using the Service, we may ask for information such as your name, e-mail address and credit card information. If you sign up for a trial account, you are not required to enter your credit card information until you decide to continue with a paid plan.

Although we own the software, code, databases, all rights to the Startup Rocket application, you retain all rights to your data.
Customers may participate in our Referral "Affiliate" Program. As as Startup Rocket affiliate you may earn a one-time referral commission ("Reward") each time a referred customer makes a payment for the Founder Plan and has passed the 7-day guarantee window. All orders must be for the purchase of Startup Rocket services by a new and unique customer who arrives at StartupRocket.com by clicking on your referral tracking link (found in your profile), completes the signup process within thirty (30) days of clicking on the affiliate tracking link, and maintains an active paid account with Startup Rocket for a minimum of 7 days.
In the event that multiple affiliates refer the same unique customer, only the last referrer before the customer orders Startup Rocket services will receive credit for the referral.
Referred customers must maintain an active service during any free trial and/or moneyback guarantee periods applicable in order for the affiliate Reward to be considered earned. Affiliates will not receive Rewards from customers who cancel/disable their service, receive a refund, or become suspended during any free trial and/or moneyback guarantee periods.
As an affiliate, once your balance reaches and/or exceeds $50 USD, you are solely responsible for keeping all information up to date, including postal and email addresses, name, payment information, tax information and any other personal information that will impact the ability to issue a valid payment. Each Affiliate is required to submit an accurate and up to date W8/W9 tax form. If we do not receive the necessary tax or payment information from you within ninety (90) days of reaching the minimum balance for a Reward Payout, such Reward shall not accrue and no resulting Reward will be owed with respect to such sale. Your tax information is required to be on file in order for your Rewards to become payable.
For affiliates who have an earnings balance in excess of $49.99 USD, earned Rewards will be paid out via PayPal at the end of the month where the balance has reached this qualifying amount. Such Rewards payments are subject to a 5% Paypal processing fee.
Affiliates are responsible for making sure they are able to accept payments. Please ensure that your bank or PayPal account can accept payments from USA-based companies.
Affiliates are responsible for all fees, taxes, exchange rates, surcharges and other expenses incurred in order to receive their Rewards. Please check with your bank or PayPal to find out if any of these apply to your account.
In the event of possible credit card fraud and high cancellation rates, Startup Rocket reserves the right to hold Rewards for up to two (2) additional months for verification. At Startup Rocket's sole discretion, we reserve the right to cancel Rewards in the event that we are unable to collect funds from the referred customer, the order is fraudulent, the customer cancels within the first 7 days, or if it is found that the Reward was earned improperly for any other reason.
Referred customers that issue a chargeback or are found to be fraudulent (e.g. false information, fake/stolen credit cards, selling counterfeit goods etc.), as determined at Startup Rocket's sole discretion, will be reversed regardless of the amount of time that has passed since the signup occurred.
Affiliates are responsible for ensuring that their tracking code is working properly before sending traffic to Startup Rocket's servers. Any modification to the links is the sole responsibility of the affiliate. Rewards may not be paid for tracking errors caused by editing, masking, redirecting, or tampering with affiliate links, as determined at Startup Rocket's sole discretion.
Domain forwarding is prohibited. You may not purchase a domain and set it to forward directly to our site using your affiliate link.
Affiliates MAY NOT copy Startup Rocket's website or any portions of it, including, without limitation, any of Startup Rocket's trademarks or other intellectual property, and display them on their own site or subdomain or use them in any way without Startup Rocket's prior expressed written permission.
Purchasing, either directly or indirectly, the search name "Startup Rocket" or any misspelling or variant thereof from websites, search engines or other directory referral services is prohibited.
Violations of our Terms of Service will result in immediate forfeiture of all Rewards payments. Additionally, you are prohibited from (1) outranking Startup Rocket's internal paid search ad on any keywords, (2) direct linking to Startup Rocket.com from any paid search ads, and (3) using Startup Rocket.com as a display URL.
Gaining referrals through misrepresentation, improper use of Startup Rocket intellectual property (ie. Startup Rocket trademarks and copyrighted material) or impersonation of Startup Rocket personnel is strictly prohibited and can result in loss of accrued Rewards and/or removal from the program.
Referred accounts must use different billing and payment methods than the referrer to qualify for Rewards.
Customers cannot refer themselves or their spouse/civil union partner. No exceptions will be made. Violations can result in the loss of all accrued Rewards and dismissal from the program.
It is our intent to treat our customers fairly. Accordingly, we require all Startup Rocket affiliates to comply fully with all applicable laws, regulations and guidelines concerning advertising and marketing, including without limitation, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Endorsement Guides (See the FTC Endorsement Guide for more information.), which require that material connections between advertisers and endorsers be disclosed. This means that all affiliate websites (e.g. directories, review/rating sites, blogs and other websites) and any email or collateral that provide an endorsement or assessment of Startup Rocket, must prominently disclose the fact that you may receive compensation for referring customers to Startup Rocket.
For more information and suggestions about how to comply with these guidelines, please click the "FTC Disclosure" tab under the Terms tab when logged in to your affiliate account. Please note that the FTC Disclosure page is only intended to provide guidance. It does not purport to provide legal advice and it does not guarantee that you will be in compliance with FTC regulations if you follow the suggestions presented. You are advised to seek and obtain your own legal advice on how these rules apply to your website or other promotional activities for which you receive compensation.
At our sole discretion, we reserve the right to withhold referral fees and/or terminate the affiliate relationship for your failure to comply with Startup Rocket's FTC disclosure policy or with any other applicable regulations or guidelines, as determined by Startup Rocket at our sole discretion.
Affiliate accounts may be deactivated at any time, without warning or notice, and at our sole discretion. Any affiliate who violates any of Startup Rocket's Terms of Service policies, including without limitation, these Affiliate Program Terms, or any applicable law, is subject to having their affiliate account deactivated immediately, and any and all accrued, but not yet received, Rewards will be forfeited.
At our sole discretion, any false or misleading advertising or suspected fraudulent activity associated with your affiliate account will result in immediate deactivation.
Affiliate accounts generating a large number of fraudulent accounts, as determined in our sole discretion, will be deactivated.
If you would like to discontinue your participation in the Affiliate Program at any time, simply remove your affiliate links from your website and no longer promote them. For accounting purposes, our systems will retain your account and personal information.
We reserve the right to modify or cancel our Affiliate Program at any time. Please make sure to check this page often! Your continued use of this service after modifications have been made constitutes an acceptance of the updated terms. If you do not agree with the updated terms, your only recourse is to stop utilizing our services and to terminate your account with us.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between Startup Rocket and you concerning the subject matter hereof, and will not be construed against its drafter. Any and all claims or disputes under this Policy, not able to be informally resolved, will be individually resolved by binding arbitration, under the Commercial Rules of the American Arbitration Association, applying the law of the State of Washington and conducted in Washington State, unless agreed to do so over the phone, prevailing party to pay all costs, including reasonable attorney’s fees, injunctive relief in court also being authorized.
