Acceptance as an Affiliate
When reviewing your application to become an Affiliate, we reserve the right to request an interview with you to discuss topics such as your website’s reach and engagement numbers, follower count, number of views, awareness of ethical and unethical strategies, promotion strategy for our product and more. If we do not do this during the application process, we still reserve the right to request it at a subsequent time during your Affiliate relationship with you.
- You must be 18 years or older to be part of this Program.
- You must be a human. Accounts registered by “bots” or other automated methods are not permitted.
- You must provide your legal full name, a valid email address and street address, a verifiable website URL and any other information requested in order to complete the signup process.
- Your login may only be used by one person – a single login shared by multiple people is not permitted.
- You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and password. Pro Medical English cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with this security obligation.
- You are responsible for all Content posted and activity that occurs under your account.
- One person or legal entity may not maintain more than one account.
- You may not use the Affiliate Program for any illegal, fraudulent or unauthorized purpose. You must not, using this Service, violate any laws in your jurisdiction, including but not limited to any copyright laws.

Links/graphics on your site, in your emails, or other communications
Once you have signed up for the Affiliate Program, you will be assigned a unique Affiliate Code. You are permitted to place links, banners, or other graphics we provide with your Affiliate Code on your site, in your emails, or in other communications. We may provide you with guidelines, link styles, and graphical artwork to use in linking to Pro Medical English. We may change the design of the artwork at any time without notice.
To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and referral fee accrual, we will provide you with special link formats to be used in all links between your site and the Pro Medical English. You must ensure that each of the links between your site and the Pro Medical English properly utilizes such special link formats. Links to the Pro Medical English placed on your site pursuant to this Agreement and which properly utilize such special link formats are referred to as “Special Links.” You will earn referral fees only with respect to sales on a Pro Medical English product occurring directly through your Special Links; we will not be liable to you with respect to any failure by you or someone you refer to use your Special Links or incorrectly type your Affiliate Code, including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction of amounts that would otherwise be paid to you under this Agreement.
Affiliate links should point to the page of the product being promoted.
Referral fees/commissions and payment
For a Product sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must click-through the Special Link from your site, email, or other communications to https://promedicalenglish.com and complete an order for a product during that session.
We will only pay commissions on links that are automatically tracked and reported by our systems. We will not pay commissions if someone says they purchased or someone says they entered a referral code if it was not tracked by our system. We can only pay commissions on business generated through properly formatted special links that were automatically tracked by our systems.
We reserve the right to disqualify commissions earned by the affiliate through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods. Fraudulent means includes but are not limited to the affiliate:
- running paid ads using our name or logo without prior BPME explicit approval
- making false claims about services BPME offers
- attaching affiliate trackable link in the browser of a user or redirecting a user to a fake website with a closely similar name to “promedicalenglish.com” with the express purpose of attaching tracking cookies to the user and subsequently, fraudulently earing commissions from any user purchases directly from the BPME.
- purchase of BPME products by the affiliates themselves
Payments only begin once you’ve earned more than $20 in affiliate income. If your affiliate account never crosses the $20 threshold, your commissions will not be realized or paid.
Identifying yourself as a Pro Medical English Affiliate
You may not issue any press release with respect to this Agreement or your participation in the Program; such action may result in your termination from the Program. In addition, you may not in any manner misrepresent or embellish the relationship between us and you, say you develop our products, say you are part of Pro Medical English or express or imply any relationship or affiliation between us and you or any other person or entity except as expressly permitted by this Agreement (including by expressing or implying that we support, sponsor, endorse, or contribute money to any charity or other cause).
You may not purchase products through your affiliate links for your own use. Such purchases may result in BPME’s withholding of referral fees and/or the termination of this Agreement.
As long as your current affiliate earning are over $20, you’ll be paid at the end of the moth following the month in which the commission was paid. If you haven’t earned $20 since your last payment receipt, we will pay you the following month after you’ve crossed the threshold.
Customers who buy products through this Program will be deemed to be BPME customers. Accordingly, all of our rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service, and product sales will apply to them. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. For example, we will determine the prices to be charged for products sold under this Program in accordance with our own pricing policies. Product prices and availability may vary from time to time. Because price changes may affect Products that you have listed on your site, you should not display product prices on your site. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to present accurate information, but we cannot guarantee the availability or price of any particular product.
You will be solely responsible for the development, operation, and maintenance of your site and for all materials that appear on your site. For example, you will be solely responsible for:
– The technical operation of your site and all related equipment
– Ensuring the display of Special Links on your site does not violate any agreement between you and any third party that hosts your site or has jurisdiction over your site
– The accuracy, truth, and appropriateness of materials posted on your site (including, among other things, all Product-related materials and any information you include within or associate with Special Links)
– Ensuring that materials posted on your site do not violate or infringe upon the rights of any third party (including, for example, copyrights, trademarks, privacy, or other personal or proprietary rights)
– Ensuring that materials posted on your site are not libelous or otherwise illegal
Compliance with Laws
As a condition to your participation in the Program, you agree that while you are a Program participant you will comply with all laws, ordinances, rules, regulations, orders, licenses, permits, judgments, decisions or other requirements of any governmental authority that has jurisdiction over you, whether those laws, etc. are now in effect or later come into effect during the time you are a Program participant.

Arbitration under this agreement shall be conducted under the rules then prevailing of Germany. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.

Subject to that restriction, this Agreement will be binding on, inure to the benefit of, and be enforceable against the parties and their respective successors and assigns. Our failure to enforce your strict performance of any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of our right to subsequently enforce such provision or any other provision of this Agreement.
The failure of Pro Medical English to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. The Terms of Service constitutes the entire agreement between you and Pro Medical English and govern your use of the Service, superseding any prior agreements between you and Pro Medical English (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms of Service).
