Affiliate Program - Terms of Use

This Terms of Use is designed with you in mind, as well as to protect Balsam Health Services DWC-LLC and our customers. ❤️

Affiliate Registration

We review and moderate all affiliate registrations, and we appreciate your accurate and honest information. Please note that the review process may take a few days – we know you are eager to join our team of affiliates, and we appreciate your patience!

If you’re approved, awesome! You’ll be given a unique referral ID that you can use to promote Balsam via referral links. Check out your private Affiliate Area for visits and referrals information, creatives, graphs and more!

Commissions and payouts

You’ll earn a sweet 20% commission when a customer purchases a new Balsam Services subscription using your referral link.

We pay out affiliate commissions in AED directly to your bank account or debit card in the first week of every month. We only pay commissions that are older than 30 days. The minimum payout balance is 200 AED, so you receive a decent chunk of cash when payouts come around. And there’s no maximum payout balance, so go nuts!

In order to receive a payout for your referrals, you must register your bank account or debit card with our payouts service.

We do not allow referrals to be generated on your own purchases. We do not offer recurring referrals.

Here are the details of our program in summary:

  • You’ll receive 20% commission for every new sale you refer
  • Minimum payout balance of 200 AED, and no maximum payout (we pay in AED)
  • Commissions older than 30 days will be paid within the first week of each month
  • Referrals are paid out to your bank account or debit card
  • Referrals cannot be generated on your own purchases (this includes using a different email address).

Referral cookie lifetime

When a potential customer clicks on your referral link, a cookie is stored in their browser to track your referral. The cookie is then stored for a generous 30 days to give your referred customers time to decide if they wish to purchase Balsam Services or ask us any pre-sale questions they may have.

A referral won’t be awarded if:

  1. The customer uses a different browser to purchase than the one they originally used to visit our site (because the cookie does not exist in that browser)
  2. The customer purchases after 30 days (because the cookie will expire).

Direct Link Tracking

We use our own Direct Link Tracking pro add-on, so you can skip the referral link (e.g. ?ref=123 or /ref/123) when you link to our site from your https:// website. You can submit a direct link to your own website in the Settings tab of your Affiliate Area. We’ll review your direct link submission, and when it’s approved you’ll no longer need to use a referral link when linking to Balsam.com directly from your site! Awesome!

Note: Direct Link Tracking is only available if your site has an SSL certificate, and therefore the https:// protocol. We will only approve websites that are 100% owned by you.

Refunded purchases

Referrals older than 30 days and in good standing (i.e. the purchase has not been refunded) will be included with each commission payout (if the commission balance totals 200 AED or over). If a purchase is refunded, a commission won’t be paid out for that referral.

We reserve the right to reject affiliate commissions for any reason. Commission rejections may occur for the following reasons:

  1. The sale that the referral was based on was refunded
  2. The method by which the referral was generated was in violation of our promotional policies (see below) or violated the spirit of the Affiliate Agreement.

Affiliate news and updates

By becoming an affiliate you agree to receive emails from Balsam. These emails will be sent to affiliates only, on an ad-hoc basis, and may include important information regarding the Balsam affiliate program. These emails will also provide you with relevant news and updates to help you effectively promote Balsam. As an affiliate you may be privy to embargoed or time-sensitive information in these emails (this information may only be promoted after an embargo is lifted). And we won’t spam you, ever – promise!

Affiliate application rejection

We reserve the right to reject affiliate applications for any reason. We also reserve the right to choose whether we provide an explanation or reasoning for affiliate application rejection. Below are just a few reasons why an application may be rejected (this is not an exhaustive list):

  • Affiliate applications for websites that sell, advertise, or engage in pornography, phishing scams, spamming, illegal business practices, or that include any material infringing on National or International Copyright will be rejected.
  • Affiliate applications for websites that we do not believe are aligned with our industry or business may be rejected.
  • Affiliate applicants with websites that re-sell any of our products will be rejected.
  • Websites considered inappropriate by Balsam will be rejected.

Inappropriate websites:

The following types of sites are not permitted to become an affiliate: adult sites, sites that display adult material or banners, sites that promote violence, hatred or bigotry, sites that promote or engage in illegal activity, including (but not limited to), hacking, cracking, nulled, and warez sites. Affiliate applications for inappropriate websites will be rejected, and we reserve the right to choose whether or not to provide a rejection reason.

Questions regarding your application

When you apply to become an affiliate, we may email you at the email address you have supplied with some questions regarding your application. This may be because:

  • We didn’t understand something in your application, or,
  • We’d like to learn a bit more about how you will promote Balsam and need a little more detail.

If we reach out to you and we haven’t heard back within 7 days, your application may be rejected. If your initial application is rejected, you are welcome to reapply to become an affiliate and provide us with more detail for reconsideration.

Dormant affiliate accounts

Please don’t leave us! We encourage all of our affiliates to actively promote Balsam Services to keep earning referrals. If we can help you come up with ideas on how to promote Balsam, please let us know – we’re here for you! An affiliate account is considered dormant if no visits have been generated after a 6-month period. A dormant affiliate account will be temporarily deactivated if no visits have been generated after 6 months. But we don’t even want to go there right now, right?! Let’s work together to help you start earning some cash!

Balsam Affiliate Program Policies

Allowed promotional methods

How you promote Balsam is reflected in the commission you earn! We encourage the use of promotional methods that add value to Balsam and bring us legitimate, loyal customers. We love it when our team of affiliates blog about affiliate marketing and mention Balsam.

Here are a few examples of awesome promotional methods to earn more commission:

  • Tell clients, customers, or friends about Balsam, and give them your affiliate referral link
  • Write a review or a blog post about Balsam’s Products & Services and link to our site with your referral link
  • Reach out to a broad audience with your social network accounts. Tweet about us on Twitter with your affiliate referral link, post about us on Facebook with your affiliate link, or communicate to your LinkedIn followers about affiliate marketing with your affiliate link. Spam-free promotion is a great way to get more referrals!
  • Provide value to others by answering related questions on other sites with helpful responses and using your referral link in your replies.

Prohibited promotional methods

We love and back our product/services 100%, and we are very careful with how it’s promoted, so we want affiliates who are 100% behind us too! The prohibited promotional methods listed below aren’t meant to scare you off – they’re here to protect you, and us, and our customers from any freaky or fraudulent activity, which is something we take seriously. We know you’ll understand. 🙂 But here they are in writing just in case you’re not totally sure what is and what isn’t allowed.

  • Balsam may not be promoted on coupon sites
    Customers who are searching for a coupon are already in the market for Balsam, so this method adds no value to Balsam.
  • Paid advertising using your affiliate link is prohibited
    Buying ads through services like Google AdWords, social ads, or retargeting ads using our brand keywords and your affiliate link will result in affiliate account deactivation.
  • Promoting incorrect or misleading information
    Any promotional activity that shares incorrect or misleading information will result in affiliate account deactivation. This includes false information intended to click-bait potential customers. If you are unsure of the correct information or details for promoting Balsam, please contact us.
  • Any type of spam is prohibited
    Links, ads, emails, comments… any type of spam. Please respect the posting rules of any 3rd-party websites you use to promote Balsam. P.S. This is not an exhaustive list of spam methods; if we decide that your activity is spam, it’s spam.
  • Any illegal activity or activity deemed offensive by us is prohibited
    This may result in referrals being rejected and/or your affiliate account being deactivated. See above for allowed and super cool promotional methods!
  • We’re flattered, but please don’t pretend to be professionally associated with Balsam
    Affiliates aren’t employees of Balsam or Sandhills Development and have no employee rights.
  • Pretending to actually be Balsam is prohibited
    Cloning our site, copying our site, using our copyrighted site assets, and pretending that a site created by you is an official Balsam site is unethical and prohibited (this includes using services that automatically clone websites, or place them into iframes).
  • Again, false promotion to customers that you are endorsed or operated by Balsam is prohibited (and super uncool).

If you’re unsure or concerned that some activity you’re about to proceed with may be considered prohibited, please ask us. 🙂

Consequences of not-cool promotional methods

If your promotional methods step outside of these terms, your referrals may be rejected, and we may disable your affiliate account. We reserve the right to do this and may or may not notify you in the instance that this occurs. Please use allowed promotional methods and help us to help you succeed as an affiliate!

Inappropriate websites

The following types of sites are not permitted to become an affiliate: adult sites, sites that display adult material or banners, sites that promote violence, hatred or bigotry, sites that promote or engage in illegal activity, including (but not limited to), hacking, cracking, nulled, and warez sites. Affiliate applications for inappropriate websites will be rejected, and we reserve the right to choose whether or not to provide a rejection reason.

The important stuff

The affiliate relationship does not represent a professional or formal agreement, and as an affiliate you are not an employee of Balsam Health Services DWC-LLC.  You agree that this is not a legally binding relationship and as a result may not take legal action against Balsam Health Services DWC-LLC. These affiliate terms and conditions are subject to change without notice.

hPG80 Logo

hPG80 Cancer Screening test; Recommended for people with a high risk of cancer (age over 45, family history of cancer, smokers, etc)

3rd Medical Opinion; In case of a major difference between the first and second opinion

Tele-ICU: command centers staffed with intensivists and critical care nurses who electronically aid and deliver real-time information to frontline clinicians

hPG80 is an early cancer detection test developed by the brilliant Prof. Dr. Dominique Joubert, researcher and executive board member of ECS Progastrin, France. This revolutionary test is the only blood-based tumor marker to detect more than 16 types* of cancer via a blood test to date. It also detects cancer earlier than any other test. This is because hPG80, or circulating progastrin, is released by cancer stem cells. hPG80 is essential for the survival and growth of cancer.

Having such a routine cancer screening is extremely important for at-risk persons. Its measurement detects the presence and the activity of cancer in all stages. 

Factors that increase the risk of cancer include but are not limited to: being 45 years old and above, having a family history of cancer, lack of physical activity, unhealthy diet, smoking, drinking alcohol, and more.

 

Cancer screenings are essential for such people, as cancer usually does not present any symptoms until later stages when it is more challenging to treat. Undergoing a routine hPG80 cancer screening test increases remission rates and saves lives, time, and money.

At Balsam Health Services, providing you with access to the best healthcare is our utmost priority. That is why we have partnered with some of the best hospitals worldwide, such as Harvard/UCLA-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital, the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and the Ronald Reagan Medical Center, LA California.

In the unfortunate event that you should suffer from a critical illness, you can rest assured knowing you are in the best medical hands. You will be able to select from some of the best hospitals and doctors in the world to provide a detailed second medical opinion and consultation with re-diagnosis and a comprehensive treatment plan. If required, your samples can also be sent to their top-ranked labs in the US for repeat biopsies or pathology tests and a review of radiology images by their top radiologists can be provided.

Furthermore, should your second medical opinion provide a completely different diagnosis, you will be recommended to request a third medical opinion from another one of Harvard/UCLA-affiliated hospital’s top doctors for confirmation. Even in the case of admission into the ICU, you will receive access to our Tele-ICU service where physicians from these top institutions will be following your condition and providing medical advice to your local doctor, in real-time.
