Affiliate Program Scope

The Lab401 Affiliate Program is intended to provide pentesting experts and creators that collaborate with Lab401 a means to earn commission on sales resulting from content that they have created. 

Account Registration & Terms

You must provide your legal full name, a valid email address, and any other information requested in order to complete the sign up process for an Affiliate account (“account”)

You must be 18 years of age or older to join this Program.

Each account is for use by either a single legal entity (e.g. a company or a partnership) or an individual user. We do not permit you to share your user name and password with any other person nor with multiple users on a network. Responsibility for the security of any user names and passwords issued (including those of any Invitees) rests with you.

You may not use the Program for any illegal or unauthorized purpose. You must not, in the use of the Program, violate any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws).

Referral Links & Promotion

Once you have signed up for the Program you will be provided with links and / or codes that must be used to identify you when placing a link or promotion from your site, video contents, video description or tutorials. It is your responsibility to ensure each such link is correctly formatted.

Promotional links and codes may not be used outside the scope of your content unless we have given our advanced written consent. This includes, but is not limited to : email promotion, distribution of codes in online forums (reddit, discord, etc). We may terminate the Agreement if there is substantiated proof of such activity.

You may not in any manner misrepresent or embellish the relationship between us and you, say you are part of Lab401 or express or imply any relationship between us and you or any other person or entity, except as expressly permitted by this Agreement.

Referral Fees

For the sale of a subscription to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must click-through a link from your content, or use a code on your content, and make a complete purchase on Lab401.

We will only pay referral fees on links that are automatically tracked and reported by our systems. We cannot pay referral fees if someone says they signed up through you but it was not tracked by our system.

Commissions on transactions that are refunded, cancelled, voided or flagged as fraudulent will be automatically removed from commission calculations.

There are three types of referrals offered by Lab401:

  • 0% / 10% : 0% commission paid to the Affiliate, 10% discount given to customers.
  • 5% / 5% : 5% commission paid to the Affiliate, 5% discount given to customers.
  • 10% / 0% : 10% commission paid to the Affiliate, 0% discount given to customers.

Affiliates can select their preferred commission basis when they register for the Affiliate Program.


Accrued referral fees are paid via bank transfer once per month and only when your accrued referral fees total €10 or more. You must have a valid bank account to receive referral fees, as we do not offer payment via cheque/check, credit card, cash or other method.

Customer payments refunded or payments charged-back due to credit card fraud do not qualify for referral fees. We may delay crediting of referral fees subject to risk analysis considerations and Anti-Money Laundering procedures.

A summary of commissions and statement of referral fees is available to the Affiliate by logging into their Affiliate account.

We reserve the right to disqualify referral fees earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods.

All fees are exclusive of all taxes, charges, levies, assessments and other fees of any kind imposed on your involvement in this Agreement and shall be the responsibility of, and payable by you.

We reserve the right to check and change commissions on the basis of orders actually paid, the notification e-mail is not understood as a confirmed commission - this is only a notification, and every payment will be verified based on real transactions.

Pricing & Availability

We will determine the prices to be charged for services sold under this Program in accordance with our own pricing policies. Services prices and availability may vary from time to time. Because price changes may affect services that you have listed on your site, you should not display services prices on your site. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to present accurate information, but we cannot guarantee the availability or price of any particular service.

Product Eligibility

Certain products sold on Lab401 have margins that do not allow for discounts to be applied. Products in this category are exempt from commissions. Products may be added and removed from this list at the discretion of Lab401.
