As well as selling our murder mystery games directly through this site, we also sell them via affiliates. Affiliates earn commission on every game bought by a customer who has been referred to our site via them.
We have a range of affiliation options – from simple links, through banner ads, up to dedicated pages. You can choose whatever you think will be most effective and most acceptable for your visitors.
How it works: We pay up to 20% commission for all sales that we get from your site. If a customer downloads an intro from your site, we create a cookie (that lasts for a year – so you don't have to worry that they don't buy a game immediately) that identifies that they came from your site, and if they then buy a game we use that cookie to credit the sale to you.
All you have to do is set up the links to our pdf files – we provide the code for you do to this. (If you don't want to link to our pdfs, we have a banner graphic code as well – but we pay only 10% commission for that.)
Note that if a visitor with your cookie goes to another site and downloads another pdf from there, your cookie will be overwritten and we won't credit you with the sale.

The Agreement between Freeform Games LLP and the person or company listed below (hereafter called the affiliate) is outlined here:
Freeform Games LLP will pay commission of not less than 10% on sales that arrive in a manner that can be tracked back directly to the affiliate. Freeform Games LLP will provide the affiliate with baner advertisements and download links specially for this purpose which the affiliate is expressly forbidden to tailor, adapt or alter in any way shape or form – either electronically or by hand. The affiliate may never attempt to deceive any person as to the intended contents of the downloadable file. At no time does copyright of any material pass to the affiliate.
When a customer makes a purchase trackable to one affiliate via a banner advertisement, and to a second affiliate via a download link, the download link will take precedence and the second affiliate will receive the whole of the affiliate referral fee.
We reserve the right to reject orders that are for products or services that we do not provide. We will be responsible for all aspects of order processing and fulfilment. We will track sales made to customers who purchase products having visited your site.
Freeform Games LLP will pay commission quarterly by PayPal or by direct bank transfer. Evidence of transfer will be sufficient evidence that payment has been made. Commission amounts will be calculated in UK pounds. Quarterly payment dates will be within two weeks of the last days of March, June, September and December. If commission values amount to less than £18, commissions may be held over until the next quarter.
The affiliate will, on demand, be entitled to be told what commission is currently due to them at that time. The affiliate also retains the right to send in qualified UK auditors should they dispute any commissions arising.
The affiliate is responsible for any taxes or duties that they may owe as a result of commissions paid by Freeform Games LLP to the affiliate. Freeform Games LLP also has the right to demand a valid tax receipt for any moneys paid out to affiliates.
The affiliate must use only the highest ethical methods for promoting the sale of the games, as interpreted by Freeform Games LLP. The agreement may be terminated by the affiliate by informing Freeform Games LLP that they wish to do so. The agreement will be deemed to be lapsed if no commissionable sales come from the affiliate for 12 months. Freeform Games LLP reserve the right to change the terms of this agreement by giving at least two weeks notice to the affiliate in the event that changes in domestic or international law affect this agreement. Freeform Games LLP may always terminate this agreement by giving 3 months notice, or immediately if the terms have been breached.
You and we are independent contractors, and nothing in this Agreement will create any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative, or employment relationship between the parties. You will have no authority to make or accept any offers or representations on our behalf. You will not make any statement, whether on your web site or otherwise, that reasonably would contradict anything in this Section.
We will not be liable for indirect, special, or consequential damages (or any loss of revenue, profits, or data) arising in connection with this Agreement or the Programme, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Further, our aggregate liability arising with respect to this Agreement and the Program will not exceed the total referral fees paid or payable to you under this Agreement.
We make no express or implied warranties or representations with respect to the Programme or any products sold through the Programme (including, without limitation, warranties of fitness, merchantability, non-infringement, or any implied warranties arising out of a course of performance, dealing, or trade usage). In addition, we make no representation that the operation of our site will be uninterrupted or error-free, and we will not be liable for the consequences of any interruptions or errors.
This agreement shall be interpreted under English law. Completing the affiliate sign-up form will imply acceptance of these terms by the affiliate, and provision to the affiliate of a unique Affiliate ID number by Freeform Games LLP will donate acceptance by Freeform Games LLP.
