This allows you to interact with customers while keeping your information private.

The domain we create may include your business name and location and other identifiable to us information so we can identify your business based on information found in the domain name.

There you will have access to your lead performance data, billing information including the ability to reject leads from invoices prior to the invoice being submitted for payment, and the ability to update your contact and payment information.
In order for us to accurately keep track and for you to receive all leads from our marketing of your business, you must maintain accurate phone and email contact information for your business on file with TCC. TCC is not responsible for any missed conversions if any supplied contact information is no longer accurate or has become unreachable (including but not limited to your voice mailbox is full, your email inbox is full or email to your email address bounces due to improper configuration, etc.) or has been modified in any way by you that causes a communication failure (i.e. your email or phone number forwarding fails to forward the information properly, you have set up call blocking or are limited unknown numbers, etc.).
It is entirely your responsibility to comply with all applicable intellectual property and other laws that pertain to your site. TCC will provide upon request any contact information we may have for your business if requested by any law enforcement personnel or agency. You must have express permission to use any person's copyrighted material, whether it be a writing, an image, or any other copyrightable work. We will not be responsible (and you will be solely responsible) if you use another person's copyrighted material or other intellectual property in violation of the law or any third-party rights.
It is your obligation to review this Agreement regularly. You must stay aware of any changes to this Agreement, although TCC will use its reasonable efforts to notify you of any major changes.
TCC Rights and Obligations
We have the right to monitor your site at any time to determine if you are following the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
It is your responsibility to ensure that all leads are from legitimate sources and could possibly lead to a new customer for your business. Upon registration and acceptance, your business will be assigned a unique phone number that we use to market your business. Any contact to this phone number assigned to your business either by voice call, text or sms message message, etc. will be determined to be a potential lead and you will be billed accordingly. We do offer a grace period for you to review the upcoming billable leads. Should you decide the lead is not applicable to becoming a customer for your business you will have the option and responsibility to reject the lead and prevent from being billed for payment. Once your lead has been submitted to a payable invoice it can no longer be rejected.
Rejecting a lead will block the specific phone number or email address from future leads to your business. Note that this is for a single business entity and not for your account. If the same phone number or email address attempts to contact a different business in your account you will be required to reject the contact from each business.
Term and Termination
This Agreement will begin immediately upon your submission of the application and will continue unless terminated hereunder. Either you or we may terminate this Agreement immediately at any time and for any reason. Termination notice may be provided via phone call, text message, and/or email and if so, we will do our best to terminate all leads to your business. Should you decide to terminate our agreement, you must notify use either by phone call or email as well as by logging in to your account and removing any business(es) you wish to terminate the agreement. Upon termination, either by you or TCC, we are under no obligation to remove existing business listings or other marketing information that we have distributed during our agreement for your business. All lead payments then due at the time of termination will be included on the next billable invoice and will be issued in the normal manner.
If you are also a referring agent of the Company, you may be subject to termination if your activity within your account is in violation of any corresponding terms of service.
We may modify any of the terms and conditions in this Agreement at any time at our sole discretion. In such event, you will be notified by email, (sent to the email address provided in the course of your registration with the Company). Modifications may include, but are not limited to, changes in the payment procedures and the TCC Program rules. If any modification is unacceptable to you, you may terminate this Agreement. Your continued participation in the Program following the email of the change notice and the new Agreement on our site will indicate your agreement to the changes.
TCC is a PPL (pay-per-lead) program. We expect payment in full for all non-rejected leads provided to your business. Delay in submitting payment my result in your business not receiving new leads until your account returns to good standing. Continued late payments and/or high lead rejection rates may result in your business or account being terminated from the program.
Lead payments are due with the generation of a new invoice which occurs every Monday. The lock period being a week ago Sunday through two weeks ago Monday. For example, all leads received between Monday May 4th through Sunday May 10th will be invoiced and due for payment on Monday May 18th. You should have at least 1 full week to review any suspect leads prior to their being due for payment. TCC may, in its discretion, withhold any affiliate payments until such time as referred customers have completed payment for our service. Payments shall be made by Company check or digital payment (such as PayPal). All payments are made in U.S. Dollars only. Additional payment options (including, but not limited to, electronic payments whether directly or via a 3rd-party provider) may be added at any time. Should this occur, a notice will be sent via email with details and instructions for enrollment. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that your payment information, regardless of means of transmission, is current and correct especially you have agreed to auto-payment. Digital payments (such as PayPal, Venmo, Apple Pay, Andoid Pay, Amazon Payments) paid from a valid email address or business cannot be reversed or refunded for any reason. Additionally, digital payments may be subject to total dollar amount limits as imposed by the payment provider, and if that limit should be exceeded, you will be required to issue as many separate payments as necessary to reach the full amount due your business in the given invoice period and prior to the 5 day pending suspension date. If full payment cannot be received within 5 days it will be handled by a case by case basis. Multiple payment methods may need to be established for faster payment (pre-payment, various payment methods, etc.).
Company shall compile and calculate the data required to determine your eligible lead amount due. This information will be available for your review via the Customer Lead Control Panel (i.e. your Dashboard). Any questions or disputes regarding the data or payout provided by Company must rejected via the portal prior to the current invoice payment due date, otherwise the information will be deemed accurate and accepted as such by you.
TCC will only invoice you for customer leads that are earned and tracked while you are an active participant in the Program. If you are removed from the Program because of non-compliant behavior, you will no longer receive leads but will be billed for all leads received prior to the termination of this agreement. If you voluntarily close your account or you are removed from the Program or are not responsive to outreach attempts, you will cease earning leads and all payments will be due immediately.
As required by U.S. Law, U.S. Residents may be required to submit a W-9 form to the Company (as required by the Internal Revenue Service).
Any missing payments, regardless of method of transmission or cause of loss, are subject to a reissuing request. If the previous payment cannot be voided, special arrangement will need to be made to investigate the failure. Your account or business status may be suspended until payment issues can be resolved.
In addition to any other remedies that may be available to Company, in the event of any breaches by you of this Agreement, you shall forfeit your rights to any leads owed by TCC to you. TCC may also withhold access to past lead information.
