Point of contact: email@example.com
Please read these terms carefully and make sure you understand all the terms conditions before accepting to become an ambassador.

Your Role as an ambassador
Your participation as a UGAMI’s ambassador is solely to legally advertise our brand and products to receive store credit based on products purchased by individuals referred to UGAMI by your own channels.
Your tools as an ambassador
As an ambassador, you will receive an ambassador url linking to Ugami’s website and a specific discount code linked to your profile. Every time, a visitor comes to the website by using your referral link and make a purchase, you will be awarded by a referral. Every time a user is purchasing using the discount code linked to your profile, you will be awarded by a referral.
The ambassador url
How does it work?
When an ambassador promotes your products and services they use a referral URL which typically looks like this: “https://www.ugami.be/?ref=1”.
When a customer clicks this link and lands on our website, the ambassador’s ID (1 in the example above) is stored in a cookie, within the customer’s browser. If the customer makes a purchase, the ambassador that the customer is tracking is awarded by a commission on the sale.
The cookie is considered as a necessary and the visitor does not have the ability to deactivate it within the Site’s options.
Is the referee tracked across all pages of the site?
Definitely. Since the ambassador’s ID is stored in a cookie, the visitor is tracked across all pages on the site.
How long does the tracking cookie stay in the customer’s browser?
The cookie’s expiration is set to 7 day.
Note: A visitor may clear their browser cookies at any time, in which case this visitor will no longer be tracked.
If a visitor clicks on 2 different ambassador links from 2 different ambassadors, which one is saved?
The last referrer will be saved in the cookie and be rewarded on the eventual purchase.
Risks of non-tracking people
There is a small risk that the referrals are not tracked properly if the visitor’s browser has removed the referral cookie. In that specific case, the referral will not be tracked, and the ambassador will not be awarded by the referral. Ugami is not responsible in that case and the referral will be lost.
Note: To make sure you the ambassador is capturing all the referees, we are advising to promote to use both the referral link and the discount code.
How does it work?
Every ambassador is getting attributed with a unique and custom discount code for a value of 5%. Every time a purchase is made with this discount code, the ambassador is getting a referral.
Ugami’s discount code policy – monopoly through ambassadors
We will never communicate publicly any discount codes which are equal or above 5%. By doing so, we want to give a monopoly to the ambassadors for which they can always provide the best discount code existing on the market.
We reserve the right to create and communicate, for specific events, discount codes offering the free shipping to the client. Client would be then able to cumulate these codes with the ambassadors’ one.
If a visitor clicks on an ambassador link and uses a discount code assigned to that ambassador, does the ambassador receive double referrals?
No, the coupon’s owner will always win the referral, including if it is assigned to a different ambassador. The ambassador assigned to the coupon or discount code will always receive the referral, regardless if an ambassador link was used.
Can affiliates refer themselves and earn commission on their own purchases?
Yes. They can use their own discount code and would be also rewarded on their own referral.
We will not be liable for indirect or accidental damages (loss of revenue, commissions) due to affiliate tracking failures, loss of database files, or any results of intents of harm to the Program and/or to our website(s).
We make no claim that our website will be error-free and we will not be liable for any interruptions or errors.
Store credits of the sales are won when a visitor is making a purchase using one of the two ambassador’s tools.
The store credits are calculated on a percentage of the subtotal of the cart before any shipping fees.
If the customer asks for a refund or cancel his order the store credit will be cancelled. If the store credit has already been used by the ambassador, it would be deducted from the next referral.
The store credit rate is a progressive one, based on cumulative sales. Goal is to reward longer and stronger partnerships.
The progressive rate model applied for this agreement is the following:
|Ambassador’s credits threshold||Rate applied||Cumulative net sales value from (in €)||to||Average orders needed to reach the tier from 0*|
Ambassador’s credits threshold: The amount of credits the ambassador needs to reach to be bumped to the next rate.
Cumulative sales value from/to: Value of the cumulative sales before shipping fees.
Rate applied: Commission rate applied to the threshold of sales.
Average orders needed: Represents the average orders needed to reach the tier from 0. Average order amount used is 30€.
E.g. the ambassador starts from 0 sales at a rate of 4%, if he refers 125€ in sales, he would have made 125 x 4% = 5.00€ as a credit store, all the next sales he will generate up to 625€ would be rewarded at 5%, etc.
Note: The commission rate applied is not split by orders. If the ambassador does not meet the requirements for going to next threshold, the lower rate will be applied.
|Order||Amount||Rate applied||Credit||cumulated credits|
|1||30 €||4%||1,20 €||1,20 €|
|2||90 €||4%||3,60 €||4,80 €|
|3||30 €||4%||1,20 €||6,00 €|
|4||30 €||5%||1,50 €||7,50 €|
|5||30 €||5%||1,50 €||9.00 €|
Ambassador’s credits threshold
The ambassador’s credits threshold is based on the cumulative credit won since the beginning of this agreement. The credits cumulation stops when the partnership agreement stops and is not renewed.
