Ambassador Program


Ambassador: you

Company: us (Your Small Biz Accountant, LLC)

Posting opportunity: a successful transaction resulting in a payment to you

Please read the Ambassador terms before submitting your Form W-9. The continued participation in our program shows your acceptance of these terms. If you object to or disagree with a provision, then do NOT sign up for the program.

Project Objectives. The Ambassador and the Company are collaborating to promote a marketing campaign for the Company’s product(s) or service(s). The Company will alert the Ambassador of posting opportunities with the terms and payment, and the Ambassador may elect to take part or not.

Payment Distribution. The Company will make payments to the Ambassador on the 15th of each month via Paypal or a check based on the Ambassador's choice. The payment covers the prior calendar month's activity without regard to a minimum payment threshold. 

Posting Content. To maintain the integrity of the marketing campaign, the Ambassador agrees to

use a post from the Company’s curated content catalog,

meet the posting deadline, 

keep the content in its original state, and  

not repurpose or otherwise alter the content without prior written permission.

Relationship Disclaimer. Per the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) laws, the content must contain a disclaimer alerting the reader or viewer of the Ambassador's financial relationship with the Company.

Social media posts — insert these hashtags immediately after your message: #ad #Ambassador #sponsored

Emails, videos, or blog posts — display this statement immediately before the link: When you click on the link to make a purchase, you may get a discount, and I will earn a commission or referral fee.

Texts to family and friends — add these words before displaying the link: If you use my link to make a purchase, you may get a discount, and I will earn a commission or referral fee. 

Podcasts — before you start, say: I have an affiliate relationship with “Deducting The Right Way” and may receive a commission or referral fee for mentioning their company name and displaying their link.

Review the FTC’s Endorsement Guides for further details.

Independent Contractor. The Ambassador is not an employee nor partner of the Company or its related entities. The Ambassador agrees to complete IRS Form W-9 and maintain accurate details with the Company. We cannot release payments without W-9 information.

Negative Reviews. The Ambassador must refrain from speaking poorly of the Company’s product(s) or service(s) while holding an ambassador title, as it would be in direct conflict with the project’s objectives.

Poor Limelight. When a party falls into poor limelight or has involvement in conduct deemed morally offensive by public standards, the non-offending party may provide a written request for content removal to limit the other party's exposure to bad publicity. It includes removing content that contains the non-offending party's image or likeness. Upon written notification, the offending party must complete the removal process within ten (10) days.


Intellectual Property. The Ambassador may not manipulate, alter, or use the Company’s proprietary assets in any manner other than specifically allowed in a posting opportunity.

Confidentiality. The terms of this agreement must remain confidential and proprietary during and after the contractual relationship. 

Hold Harmless. The Ambassador will hold the Company harmless for the Ambassador's willful, knowing, fraudulent, unethical, criminal, reckless, or grossly negligent actions that lead to a legal matter or case.

Proprietary and Confidential Data. The Ambassador understands that the Company’s documents, communications, and processes are proprietary and confidential and will not disclose or share the intellectual property, trade secrets, and processes with unapproved third parties during or after the contractual relationship, without the Company’s written permission. The Ambassador must notify the Company upon receiving a subpoena or order from a government agency, regulatory body, or legal process, so the Company may seek appropriate remedies before the disclosure.

Alternative Dispute Resolution. Both parties agree to work together to resolve any differences or disputes arising out of this agreement. If an amicable solution is not available, the parties will entrust the matter to out-of-court alternative dispute resolution (ADR) as final and binding. It is the sole means for resolving disputes for any past, current, or future issues, whether it is subject to this agreement or otherwise. THIS CONSENT WAIVES THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT, A JURY TRIAL, OR AN APPEAL.

The parties assign the case’s arbitrability solely to the arbitrators applying the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and not a court of law.

A party has only one (1) year to file a demand for arbitration after the date such party first knows or reasonably should know of the omission, act, or default giving rise to the claim. 

Each party will split into equal parts the cost of a three-judge panel of arbitrators from the AAA for only one 8-hour day. All other expenses, including an attorney, witness, or interpreter fees, are the party’s direct responsibility. 

Each party must select one commercial arbitrator unknown to them within fifteen (15) days of the initial filing date. Those two arbitrators will appoint the third arbitrator within ten (10) days. If the two selected arbitrators cannot agree upon an arbitrator unknown to them, the AAA must choose the third impartial person.

The three-arbitrator panel must be practicing licensed lawyers specializing primarily in wills and trusts for at least ten (10) years and must apply the substantive law (and the law of remedies, if applicable) of the State of Florida.

The arbitrator(s) cannot combine more than one claim. It may only award compensatory damages (except as required by law) directly and solely caused by errors, acts, or omissions committed in violation of the party’s duties. The arbitrators must limit monetary damages to the payments (in U.S. dollars) arising under the agreement and no more. The arbitrators may provide preliminary or temporary injunctive relief for immediate relief matters.

The exclusive venue shall be in Orange County, Florida, in the United States, but the winning party may file the arbitration award in any court with jurisdiction. A party, arbitrator, or witness may join the hearing via telephone, web conference, or in-person.

The performance of the agreement terms must continue during the ADR. The Company cannot withhold any payment payable under this agreement during a pending ADR unless such amount is the dispute’s subject.

No party, arbitrator, or witness may divulge the arbitration’s existence, subject, or results without both parties’ prior written consent (except as required by law). The parties must not communicate with the media, publication entities, or public forums about the ADR.

Assignment. The Ambassador may not assign, transfer, or sell their rights and responsibilities to another party without the Company’s written permission. The Company may assign its rights and duties during a sale or merger with a third-party by giving the Ambassador a thirty (30) day written notice.

Headings. Paragraph headings are for reference only and cannot interpret the agreement.

Heirs. This agreement binds both parties’ representatives and successors in interest.

Termination. Either party may end their participation in this program by providing written notice to the other. At such time, the Ambassador must stop posting content. The Company will not pay Affiliate commissions or referral fees for transactions occurring after the termination date.

Effective Date and Updates. The Company may change these terms without advance notice. Please check for changes regularly — your continued use of the Site and participation in the program confirms your agreement to the modifications.
