Boostapal Booster Member Agreement
As used in this Agreement, the term “student member” refers to a student who uses BAP to generate traffic to BAP through a qualified link provided by BAP and receives a boost when a qualifying purchase is made with any of our affiliate merchants. The terms “you”, “Booster”, or “user” all refer to the person or entity who uses a qualifying link supplied by a student member to make a purchase with an affiliate merchant.
Boostapal allows users/boosters to access the Boostapal mall and make purchases through its qualifying links. When a Booster makes a qualified purchase at a participating merchant through a qualifying link supplied to him by a BAP student member the student member will receive a monetary boost. A boost is a dollar amount given to a student member when a qualifying purchase is made through a qualified link at the BAP mall and is a percentage of the total qualifying sales price excluding shipping, handling and tax
A Booster is an individual who makes a qualifying purchase through a qualified link that was supplied by a student member. A"BAP merchant", “affiliate merchant” or “participating merchant” is any merchant currently participating as a merchant in the Mall at www.Boostapal.com.
No Cost to participate
There is no cost to participate in this program. BAP offers a boost by working with online retailers utilizing affiliate marketing.
A Booster must be at least 18 years old and must create and maintain an account with BAP. Boosters may not have more than one account and are prohibited from selling, trading, or otherwise transferring their BAP account to another party. Boosters are prohibited from attempting to receive boosts resulting from their own purchases. Using BAP to receive “cash back” on purchases is not permitted and will result in termination from the program and forfeiture of all balances in the BAP account. Only Student members may receive monetary boosts.
Use of the BAP Program
As a Booster, the student member(s) who you are boosting receives a monetary boost when a qualifying online purchase is made by you via a qualified link provided to you by a student member from a merchant participating in our program. You must start eacj shopping session at the Boostapal Mall and you must have cookies enabled on your web browser. A 'Qualified Purchase', must also satisfy the following criteria:
- You must log on to Boostapal with your username to be properly linked to a student member’s portal. You may be linked to more than one student member.
- You must make all qualified purchases by clicking on the participating merchant’s link that appears on the BAP website, and be successfully connected to the participating merchant’s website as a result of that click.
- You must complete the qualified purchase during the same session immediately following the initial click-through to the participating merchant's site.
- Discount codes, coupon codes or promotion codes that are not supplied by BAP will likely disqualify a purchase as a qualified purchase per merchant agreements.
- Purchase must not be made with gift card or gift certificate as part of the payment method.
Common reasons why a purchase may not qualify for a boost include:
- You do not meet eligibility requirements listed above.
- You do not have cookies enabled on your computer.
- You complete multiple transactions without returning to the BAP mall. (Completing each transaction ends your Booster’s "boost session" with BAP, and you must return to the BAP mall for boosts to be received on additional items or from additional stores).
- You do not log onto Boostapal.com prior to initiating a transaction.
- You click on any "special offers" or toolbars from other websites while shopping.
- You contact the merchant to change an order.
- You used a coupon or offer code obtained outside of BAP.
All purchases may be disqualified, at the sole discretion of BAP, if the booster member or his student member attempts (1) to use BAP through any means other than through participating sign-up pages; (2) to disrupt BAP and/or circumvent the terms and conditions of this Agreement; (3) to use automated means to create entries/registrations; (4) register on behalf of another person; (5) provide false or unverifiable information to Boostapal.com; or (6) sign up multiple times. And, if any of the above or other attempts to defraud advertisers or BAP occur, BAP reserves the right to remedy any such action, disruption or circumvention in a manner, determined solely by BAP that is fair and equitable to other members, advertisers, and nonprofits. BAP may not give notice in such an instance.
Occasionally purchases at our affiliated merchants' websites will not generate commissions for Boostapal. These may include, but are not limited to, gift certificates, gift cards, and other items determined by the merchant. Boostapal can not pay boosts on purchases that do not generate a commission for Boostapal or for which a merchant cancels a commission. However, Boostapal will, without exception, always disburse at least 50% of the commissions it receives as boosts.
You are responsible for maintaining accurate account information at all times, including valid email address information. You are responsible for keeping your email address, password and all other information concerning your account confidential. BAP is entitled to act on instructions received under your username and password. BAP is not responsible for any changes made to your account by someone else who uses your username or password. BAP will not be responsible for any losses or liabilities incurred through the use of your password by a third party.
We will provide you with links on Boostapal.com to the websites of affiliate merchants. When you click one of these links and make a qualifying purchase at that merchant's website, your chosen student member(s) will receive a boost. The boost is a percentage of the total purchase price less shipping, handling and tax. We will make every effort to accurately track and report your qualifying purchases, but you will not hold us liable for any delays or failures in tracking or reporting that are the fault of the merchant in reporting your purchase to us. Furthermore, you will not hold us liable for any technical failures that delay or prevent your purchase, and therefore your student’s possible boosts from being reported to us. If you have disabled cookies or other technologies used in tracking purchases, this may be the cause of such technical failure.
In the event of a dispute between you and a merchant listed on this website, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you release Boostapal, its respective affiliates and any third parties under contract with Boostapal and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents and legal representatives from and against claims and damages of any kind, known or unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such a dispute.
Non Member specific boosts – Community boost fund
Nearly all of the merchants on our site allow Boostapal to track purchases to specific boosters so that a boost may be forwarded to the booster’s student(s). A limited number of merchants agree to pay Boostapal a commission but do not permit us to track and link a booster’s purchase to his student(s). This prevents us from directing a boost from a booster’s purchase to his student(s). These merchants are labeled “Community Boost Merchant.”
We place at least 50% of the commission Boostapal receives from these merchants into the Boostapal Community Boost Fund and distribute the contents to all student members four times per year (March, June, September, December).
To help insure fairness, the fund will be distributed based on each student’s boosters’ participation in Boostapal. Each student’s share of this fund will be based on the total available boosts that the student received during that quarter as a percentage of the total available boosts received by all students during the quarter.
Also, individuals who use the Boostapal mall but are not members will still generate a boost with each purchase. These boosts will be deposited into the Community Boost fund and distributed as noted above.
