Terms and conditions
You may terminate your affiliate account at any time, without prior notification and without explanation.
ProtWare, Inc. may terminate your affiliate account at any time, without prior notification and without explanation. In such case you will receive your pending payments as usual.

Commissions, payments and reporting

You will get your payments from our reseller, not from ProtWare, Inc.
You will receive statistics and notifications about the sales made through your affiliate account from our reseller , not from ProtWare, Inc.
For any questions about payments and your sales statistics, please contact

Initially, each affiliate is assigned a 20% commission of HTML Guardian's sales price.
On 15th of each month, we will re-calculate commission rates for the next month based on the sales statistics for the previous month. Most successful affiliates(top 20%) will get a better percentage, least successful affiliates may get a lower percentage. The accounts of least successful affiliates might be terminated, if they remain in this category for more than 3 consequent months. The new commission rates will become effective one month later (let's say you're in the top 20% for May - your commission rate will be re-calculated on 15th of June - you will start getting a better percentage for the sales generated in July). ProtWare will not inform you about the changes in your commission rates. You can see them after logging to your affiliate account.

Each affiliate may negotiate a custom commission percentage with ProtWare, Inc. This can be done at least 3 months after your affiliate account is activated.

Most successful affiliates may use another form of sales - they can purchase pre-paid license packs at a much better commission percentage. If you are interested in obtaining a pre-paid license pack, please email

Note: the first order only generated through your affiliate links gets 0% comission. This is so to make it useless to join the affiliate program only to get a discount for a single purchase.
