Any dealer/company coming in as a Security Affiliate must abide by several rules...
IMPORTANT: To register, you must read and agree to our guidelines. If you accept the guidelines, complete and submit a registration application that we will link you to at the bottom of this page.
By sending in your application, you are indicating your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. RGS Technologies will evaluate your application and, upon acceptance, enroll you into our dealer program(s).
The Security Affiliates dealers listed on our sites will be fully insured bonded and licensed (if applicable in your state). If you install any fire systems, you must be fire licensed. All Affiliates will add RGS Technologies, Security Affiliates and Security Partners LLC as an "also insured" on their basic policies.
The Security Affiliates Affiliates will help promote our group and each other. We will direct interested Affiliates to classes on Internet marketing. To beat the "big guys", we have to work on a strong Internet presence. Our group must show up on the first and no more than the second page of all security related Internet searches.
For monitoring, our Central Station partner provides you with an 800 receiver number that your dealership owns. Should you ever sell your accounts or move to another receiver, you only have to make one phone call instead of reprogramming all your panels.
Billing & Collections
You may be able to have the Central Station or third party do billing under your name for a small charge. This can help a lot of smaller companies that occasionally experience cash-flow problems. The only thing you have to do is tell the Security Affiliates how much to charge your customers and how often they should charge them.
Relationship of Parties:
You and Security Affiliates are independent contractors, and nothing in this Agreement will create any 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 behalf of Security Affiliates. You will not make any statement, whether on your web site or otherwise, that reasonably would contradict anything in this Section.
Security Affiliates reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to reject your application or terminate your enrollment in the dealer program for any reason. Security Affiliates generally will reject or terminate Affiliates that are unethical, dishonest, exhibit consistent poor workmanship in their service or installation, operate sites containing pornographic or adult-themed material, get rich quick schemes, products or services involving deceptive marketing practices, hate messages or any other content which fails to maintain Security Affiliates high standards, good image and reputation, or which Security Affiliates believes to be obscene or indecent or otherwise objectionable.
Terminated dealers may still use our discounted dealer services, but will not be able to display our name or logos, or be listed in any of our web sites or referred new customers.
Links to Security Affiliates Web sites:
If you are listed on our sites, you must provide at least one link on your main Web site to Security Affiliates.. Security Affiliates will make available to you, at its discretion, graphic images, text links or other material that will identify your web site as an affiliate and create a link to the Security Affiliates Web site.
You may use links to Security Affiliates Web site in your regular, daily personal or professional e-mail communications, for example by inserting a Special Link in your e-mail "signature."
You also may provide a link to The Security Affiliates Web site as described above, in your e-mail correspondence, subject to the following limitations:
LINKS TO ANY OF OUR WEB SITES IN ANY UNSOLICITED BULK, JUNK, HATE OR SPAM E-MAIL COMMUNICATIONS MAY RESULT IN IMMEDIATE TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OR TERMINATION.
Commissions (Future use)
Security Affiliates may soon be starting an affiliate program by partnering with several major Internet companies. Dealers deciding to join may be pay a small commission to an Internet company for each customer referred by them through this program, provided that such customer qualifies, signs up for and pays for monitoring service from your company. We will make details available as we close our partnership agreements with these companies.
