Welcome to the Deputy Partner Program! Deputy delivers world-class cloud-based workforce scheduling, time and attendance and management solutions. Details about Deputy including our solutions, partners, people, security settings and pricing are located at www.deputy.com.
These Deputy Partner Program Terms (Terms) have been created so that program partners like you can enjoy the benefits of the Deputy Partner Program (Deputy Partner Program) and they govern your participation in the Deputy Partner Program.
2. Changes to these Terms
We may need to update these Terms as the Deputy Partner Program evolves, and we will provide you with notice of any changes as described in section 19 below.
3. Other terms that apply to you
4. Application & Appointment
You may only participate in the Deputy Partner Program:
by applying through the Deputy Partner Program online platform (the ParterStack Platform), submitting all requested information and certifying to the Deputy FCPA Certification (collectively, your Application);
when you receive confirmation through the PartnerStack Platform that your Application has been accepted and we offer you a place in the Deputy Partner Program; and
if you accept our offer by acknowledging that you have read and agree to these Terms and the Channel Terms, by clicking “I agree” or a similar link or checkbox displayed in the PartnerStack Platform.
If you accept our offer to join the Deputy Program, then you agree to be bound by these Terms and the Channel Terms, will become a non-exclusive Deputy Partner subject to these Terms and may call yourself a “Deputy Partner”. You may only become a Deputy Partner if you agree to these Terms.
In these Terms, when we say “you” or “your” or “Deputy Partner” we mean you, or, if you are agreeing to these Terms not as an individual but on behalf of an entity, then we mean that entity. If you are entering into these Terms on behalf of an entity, you represent that you have the legal authority to bind the entity to these Terms.
5. PartnerStack Platform
You must provide the details of each Customer or potential Customer in accordance with the method/s identified in the PartnerStack Platform and you acknowledge that you are only entitled to be paid Fees by Deputy in respect of Customers notified to Deputy via the PartnerStack Platform.
You acknowledge that Deputy may, in its absolute discretion, discontinue your access to the PartnerStack Platform, replace it, or vary any of its features or functions.
6. Partner Categories & Structure
The PartnerStack Platform contains information about the Deputy Partner Program that are specific to our different partner channels (e.g. referral or reseller channels, etc.) (each a Channel) and tiers (e.g. Advocate, Ambassador & Champion) within those Channels. The PartnerStack Platform also contains or references terms and conditions, policies, procedures and guidelines relevant to each of the partner Channels (collectively, Channel Terms).
Although you may nominate the Channel you wish to operate under, Deputy will determine (in its absolute discretion) which Channel applies to you at any particular time. For example, although you may nominate to be a reseller of Deputy Solutions, Deputy may determine that the scale and experience of your business is better suited to be a referrer of Deputy Solutions.
Deputy and you may also agree in writing to specific terms in relation to additional matters or which amend these Terms or the Channel Terms (Specific Terms).
