This text introduces the My Tax Digital Affiliate Programme Agreement, which outlines the terms and conditions of the My Tax Digital Affiliate Program offered by Open Answers Ltd. Individuals or companies interested in participating must agree to the terms and conditions of this agreement by clicking the “Enrol” button on the affiliate application. It is advised that the agreement is read carefully before accepting its terms.
To enrol in the My Tax Digital Affiliate Programme, the Affiliate must submit and complete an application on mytaxdigital.co.uk. Open Answers Ltd will evaluate the application and inform the Affiliate of its acceptance or rejection. The company may reject the application or terminate the agreement for any reason, with or without notice to the Affiliate, including a determination that the Affiliate’s site is unsuitable for or incompatible with the program.
According to the agreement, the Affiliate must post at least one Link to the My Tax Digital Site on their owned or operated website(s), social media account, email signature or other public-facing internet-based platform within ten business days after being accepted into the programme. The use of any masking of URLs to make the Affiliate’s link appear as an official mytaxdigital.co.uk link is prohibited. The Link must not mislead visitors and should be intended to direct users to the My Tax Digital Site for that particular Link. The Affiliate Site must include the My Tax Digital Brand Features, which cannot be altered, removed, or customised by the Affiliate. The Affiliate is also not allowed to use or display the Link(s) or My Tax Digital Brand Features in any way that could potentially damage the reputation or goodwill associated with My Tax Digital, including defamatory, misleading, libellous, or obscene manner.
The Affiliate is solely responsible for the development, operation, and maintenance of their website and ensuring that its content is appropriate and does not infringe on any third-party rights. The Affiliate is prohibited from purchasing or using domain names that incorporate any part of the My Tax Digital Brand Features, purchasing search engine keywords that outrank My Tax Digital’s brand features, identifying the Affiliate site as an official site, and changing any My Tax Digital product price or offering additional Affiliate discounts or rebates. The Affiliate agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold Open Answers Ltd and its officers, directors, employees, agents, partners, successors, and assigns harmless from any claims, losses, liabilities, damages, or expenses arising from the development, operation, maintenance, and contents of their website.
This clause sets forth that if the Affiliate is approved, Open Answers Ltd would prefer that the Affiliate does not promote or sell products that compete with My Tax Digital Products. However, if the Affiliate does promote or sell competitive products, they agree to place My Tax Digital’s Content in a location and manner on their Site that is equal to or better than the location and manner in which they place a competitor’s Content. This ensures that My Tax Digital’s Content is given equal or greater visibility than that of competitors, helping to maintain My Tax Digital’s brand reputation and customer base.
