master and servant or principal and agent shall exist between ClickFunnels and You

3. TERM AND TERMINATION. Your contract with ClickFunnels
begins when You click “I Agree,” and will continue month-to-month until either:
A. ClickFunnels cancels Your account due to
Your breach of any of the terms of this Agreement. In the event this Agreement

When another person (a “Prospect”) clicks through that URL, a cookie (or
similar tracking technology (hereinafter “Cookie”)) will be set in the
Prospect’s browser. When the Prospect creates a ClickFunnels account by using
Your Affiliate Link, the Cookie on the Prospect’s browser, corresponding to
Your unique URL, registers a “Sale,” and each such account is a “Sold Account.”
In the event that a Prospect has multiple Affiliate Cookies, the most
recently-acquired Cookie will determine which Affiliate is credited with a
Sale. You will be paid a commission for each Sold Account that generates a minimum
payment of $97.00 to ClickFunnels in a month. The Commission amount is 40% of
all fees received by ClickFunnels for a Sold Account. Commission payments will
be made to You on or before forty-five (45) days following

that arise from or in any way relate to any commissions or bonuses You receive
