Legal Stuff

Under Australian law, when sharing an affiliate link you MUST let everyone who sees your link know that you MAY receive a commission for providing the link.

SPAM is bad! If you post your links everywhere and anywhere it may be classed as spam. It looks bad for you and it looks really bad for CarGaurd. There are also laws that govern spam in Australia that can include large fines and possible jail time for serial offenders. 

CarGuard reserve the right to cancel your affiliate account, if we determine that you have breached any laws or may act in a way that may tarnish or damage the reputation of CarGuard while acting as an affiliate we WILL cancel your affiliate account immediately without warning.

To get any idea of what is OK and what isn't, the section below gives examples of the right times to use your affiliate links.

In order to be an affiliate you must have an ABN (If in Australia) or other business entity registration in order to be paid for your referrals. Payments are made like any other business transaction around the world and applicable taxes, tariffs or duties on any income earned is the affiliates responsibility to comply and pay.

You are not permitted to purchase goods for yourself on the CarGuard website using your own affiliate code to get discounts. If we detect this has occurred, your affiliate account will immediately be terminated and any commissions owing will be NOT be paid out!

When and when NOT to share your affiliate links

Part of being an affiliate means that you earn cash by referring CarGuard to potential customers. This is done via links that are generated in the affiliate portal. It may seem logical to post your affiliates everywhere. This is not always a good idea as there is a fine line between trying to help someone out and being a spammer.

Let's take a look at some examples of when and when not to share you affiliate links

✔️Examples of when it's OK to share your links

A user has made a post on social media such as Facebook asking about protecting their car from theft. It would be OK for you to provide your affiliate link in the comments.

Example Post:

"Hi everyone, my neighbours car was stolen last night and they didn't even break in to steal the key! What can I do to protect my car. it also has a keyless entry system?"

Your comment:

""Hey, sorry to hear!  CarGuard are based in Australia and have simple enclosures for your keys that block the signals.
 You can check out the range here"
You make a YouTube video or social media video post OR post a video on your own feed. It is OK for you to post a link to your affiliate profile.

Examples of when NOT to share your links

Example Post

"Check out CarGuard, they have heaps of cool stuff.
