PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY, AS IT CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES.1. OVERVIEW
This CashParking® Service Agreement (this “Agreement”) is entered into by and between GoDaddy.com, LLC and you, and is made effective as of the date of electronic acceptance. This Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions of your use of GoDaddy’s CashParking services (“CashParking” or the “Services”).
Your electronic acceptance of this Agreement signifies that you have read, understand, acknowledge and agree to be bound by this Agreement, along with (i) GoDaddy’s Universal Terms of Service, and (ii) any plan limits, product disclaimers or other restrictions presented to you on the CashParking landing page of the GoDaddy website (this “Site”), both (i) and (ii) of which are incorporated herein by reference.
The terms “we”, “us” or “our” shall refer to GoDaddy. The terms “you”, “your”, “User” or “customer” shall refer to any individual or entity who accepts this Agreement. Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to confer any third-party rights or benefits.
You acknowledge and agree that (i) GoDaddy, in its sole and absolute discretion, may change or modify this Agreement, and any policies or agreements which are incorporated herein, at any time, and such changes or modifications shall be effective immediately upon posting to this Site, and (ii) your use of this Site or the Services found at this Site after such changes or modifications have been made (as indicated by the “Last Revised” date at the top of this page) shall constitute your acceptance of this Agreement as last revised. If you do not agree to be bound by this Agreement as last revised, do not use (or continue to use) this Site or the Services found at this Site.

Additionally, in calculating your Commission Payment, amounts may include fractions of a cent.

GoDaddy may provide you with reports detailing information related to clicks, impressions or revenue your website generates. In the event such data is provided, you agree not to disclose such data, except to employees or agents who need to know and who have agreed in writing to keep it confidential.6. PAYMENT OF COMMISSION PAYMENTS
“Commission Payment(s)” are paid monthly and represent commissions earned in the preceding second month, less any applicable fees, refunds and/or chargebacks. For example, commissions earned in January 2021 would be paid in March 2021.
Commission Payments can be cancelled or suspended at any time due to chargebacks or suspicion of fraud.
In order to receive Commission Payments you will need to set up a payee and assign it to your CashParking account.
A list of supported payment methods, applicable fees, and minimum payment thresholds are published here:
