Company Principals agree that by joining CommissionCrowd during Beta you will:
- Test the platform and provide feedback during our beta phase
- Take reasonable steps to build, manage and retain a successful commission-only sales team within the CommissionCrowd platform
- Take reasonable steps to learn how to work with a commission-only sales team and take a pro-active partnership approach
- Communicate with agents and run all new business generated by agents found within CommissionCrowd through the CommissionCrowd platform
- Pay an admin fee* of between 1-2% to CommissionCrowd in addition to the commission amount that you pay an agent on the back of closed business.
- Never subtract CommissionCrowd's admin fee from the commissions owed to an agent. This fee is always in addition to their commission payment.
- CommissionCrowd do not offer refunds on the cost of your subscription type or membership fee. Our membership fees are structured in a way that cover the cost of on-boarding into the CommissionCrowd App. We'll always work with you if assistance is needed, including an option to upgrade your membership type/length if appropriate.
Premium Monthly Memberships - You must make a minimum commitment of 3 months. If you've found an agent within the first 3 months then you must complete all 12 installments for a minimum term of one year. If you fail to meet your payment installments your agents may be notified that you are not a company who is able to meet their monthly commitments and your account may be closed. This is to protect the agent against fraudulent companies who are not interested in win/win partnerships.
Sales agents agree that by joining CommissionCrowd during Beta you will:
- Test the platform and provide feedback during our beta phase
- Take reasonable steps to build, manage and retain a successful commission-only sales partnerships with Company principals using the CommissionCrowd application

*Admin Fee: In addition to paying the regular commissions to your sales agents on the back of closed business, you'll also pay CommissionCrowd an additional 1-2% depending on the membership you choose.
Note: Part of this fee is used to seed our business development fund which works to attract more sales agents from around the world to work on your opportunity. It aligns to the pay-on-performance commission model and many companies find it helpful to view it as a recruitment expense that they only have to pay on the back of closed business.
Subscription to Beta Service
We may offer certain Services as closed (private) or open beta services ("Beta Service" or "Beta Services") for the purpose of testing and evaluation. You agree that we have the sole authority and discretion to determine the period of time for testing and evaluation of Beta Services. We will be the sole judge of the success of such testing and the decision, if any, to offer the Beta Services as commercial services. You will be under no obligation to acquire a subscription to use any paid Service as a result of your subscription to any Beta Service outwith any purchase you made to participate. We reserve the right to fully or partially discontinue, at any time and from time to time, temporarily or permanently, any of the Beta Services with or without notice to you. You agree that we will not be liable to you or to any third party for any harm related to, arising out of, or caused by the modification, suspension or discontinuance of any of the Beta Services for any reason.
User Sign up Obligations
You need to sign up for a user account by providing all required information in order to access or use the Services. If you represent an organization and wish to use the Services for corporate internal use, we recommend that you, and all other users from your organization, sign up for user accounts by providing your corporate contact information. In particular, we recommend that you use your corporate email address. You agree to: a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the sign up process; and b) maintain and promptly update the information provided during sign up to keep it true, accurate, current, and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, outdated, or incomplete, or if we have reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, outdated, or incomplete, we may terminate your user account and refuse current or future use of any or all of the Services.
Organization Accounts and Administrators
When you sign up for an account for your organization you may specify one or more administrators. The administrators will have the right to configure the Services based on your requirements and manage end users in your organization account. If your organization account is created and configured on your behalf by a third party, it is likely that such third party has assumed administrator role for your organization. Make sure that you enter into a suitable agreement with such third party specifying such party's roles and restrictions as an administrator of your organization account.
You are responsible for i) ensuring confidentiality of your organization account password, ii) appointing competent individuals as administrators for managing your organization account, and iii) ensuring that all activities that occur in connection with your organization account comply with this Agreement. You understand that we are not responsible for account administration and internal management of the Services for you.
You are responsible for taking necessary steps for ensuring that your organization does not lose control of the administrator accounts. You may specify a process to be followed for recovering control in the event of such loss of control of the administrator accounts by sending an email to email@example.com, provided that the process is acceptable to CommissionCrowd. In the absence of any specified administrator account recovery process, CommissionCrowd may provide control of an administrator account to an individual providing proof satisfactory to CommissionCrowd demonstrating authorization to act on behalf of the organization. You agree not to hold CommissionCrowd liable for the consequences of any action taken by CommissionCrowd in good faith in this regard.
Spamming and Illegal Activities
You agree to be solely responsible for the contents of your transmissions through the Services. You agree not to use the Services for illegal purposes or for the transmission of material that is unlawful, defamatory, harassing, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, abusive, threatening, harmful, vulgar, pornographic, obscene, or is otherwise objectionable, offends religious sentiments, promotes racism, contains viruses or malicious code, or that which infringes or may infringe intellectual property or other rights of another. You agree not to use the Services for the transmission of "junk mail", "spam", "chain letters", "phishing" or unsolicited mass distribution of email. We reserve the right to terminate your access to the Services if there are reasonable grounds to believe that you have used the Services for any illegal or unauthorized activity.
Inactive User Accounts Policy
We reserve the right to terminate unpaid user accounts that are inactive for a continuous period of 120 days. In the event of such termination, all data associated with such user account will be deleted. We will provide you prior notice of such termination and option to back-up your data. The data deletion policy may be implemented with respect to any or all of the Services. Each Service will be considered an independent and separate service for the purpose of calculating the period of inactivity. In other words, activity in one of the Services is not sufficient to keep your user account in another Service active. In case of accounts with more than one user, if at least one of the users is active, the account will not be considered inactive.
We respect your right to ownership of content created or stored by you. You own the content created or stored by you.
