Last Modified On: July 4, 2022
This Affiliate Agreement (“Agreement” or “Affiliate Agreement”) sets out the terms and conditions governing your application for, and (if accepted in writing by us) participation in, the DataCamp Affiliate Program (“Affiliate Program”). This Agreement is non-exclusive and does not prevent or restrict us from entering into the same or different agreement with any third parties.
This Agreement is entered into by DataCamp, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“DataCamp”, “we”, “our”, “us”) and you ("Affiliate", “you” and “your”). By applying to participate in the DataCamp Affiliate Program, you are confirming that you have read this Affiliate Agreement and that you agree to all of the terms and conditions set out in it. If you do not agree to the terms in our Affiliate Agreement, please do not submit an application to us.
How the DataCamp Affiliate Program works:
If your application to use our Affiliate Program is accepted by us in writing, you will be entitled to receive a credit if:
an individual who is entitled to access and use our online education service ‘clicks’ directly on the unique affiliate link that we provide to you (“Affiliate Link”) and you have placed on your website; and
that same individual purchases an Individual Plan from us within a cookie window of up to 30 days (depending on the affiliate category) of first ‘clicking’ on that same Affiliate Link; and
that same individual’s purchase completes successfully without any chargebacks or refunds.
(“Converted User”) (“Conversion”).
Provided all of the above actions occur (and provided you comply with all of the terms of this Affiliate Agreement at all times), the amount of your credit will be equal to:
15-20% of the applicable Converted User’s first year of a yearly subscription for an Individual Plan; or
50-80% of the applicable Converted User’s first month of a monthly subscription for an Individual Plan.
In this Agreement we refer to the above credit as a “Commission”.
1.1. Commission amounts may be changed by DataCamp at any time in its sole discretion. This information is available to you in the Affiliate Dashboard. You are solely responsible for monitoring and determining if the Commission amount for an Affiliate Link you have placed on your website has changed or been discontinued
1.2. Accrued Commission will be paid to you by the last day of the month immediately following the date of the applicable Conversion. Commissions are calculated based on the statistics and balance collected, calculated and displayed on the Affiliate Dashboard. The only valid statistics used for determining Commissions will be those displayed in the Affiliate Dashboard.
1.3. You are responsible for any and all charges, fees, taxes, exchange rates, surcharges and other expenses arising out of the Affiliate relationship with us including those incurred in order to receive any Commission.
1.4. The only available payment options for Commissions are described in Impact. We may decline any other payment options at our sole discretion.
1.5. You acknowledge that the Commission is payable on a receipts, not accrual basis, so if we do not receive any revenue from a Conversion, no Commission will be payable to you.

Your websites will not have “Click for (or to see) Deal/Coupon” or any variation, when there are no coupons or deals available, and the click opens the DataCamp Website or sets a cookie.

You will not bid in their pay-per-click campaigns on keywords such as datacamp.com, datacamp, DataCamp, Datacamp, DataCamp coupons, DataCamp Discounts, data camp, www.datacamp, www.datacamp.com and/or any misspellings or similar alterations of these – be it separately or in a combination with any other keywords – this will be considered to be in material breach of the Affiliate Agreement. Using “doorway pages” in such instances or overall as part of DataCamp promotional activities is also strictly prohibited.
You will not transmit any so-called “interstitials,” “Parasiteware,” “Parasitic Marketing,” “Shopping Assistance Application,” “Toolbar Installations and/or Add-ons,” “Shopping Wallets” or “deceptive pop-ups and/or pop-unders” to consumers from the time the consumer clicks on a qualifying link until such time as the consumer has fully exited the DataCamp Website (i.e., no page from our site or any DataCamp content or branding is visible on the end-user’s screen).

through accidental or direct intent causes the overwriting of affiliate and non-affiliate commission tracking cookies through any other means than a customer initiated click on a qualifying link on a web page or email;
intercepts searches to redirect traffic through an installed software, thereby causing, pop ups, commission tracking cookies to be put in place or other commission tracking cookies to be overwritten where a user would under normal circumstances have arrived at the same destination through the results given Internet search and directory engines (services referred here as examples include, but are not limited to, Google, MSN, Yahoo, Overture, AltaVista, Hotbot);

Here you will have an option to review the details of our Affiliate Program including our promotional materials, such as affiliate links to web pages within the DataCamp Website and banner creatives.

2.6. You can only create, and use, one account. Although you can list multiple domains within that one account, only one account is allowed.
2.7. Self-referrals for affiliate purchases are strictly prohibited.
