1. AFFILIATES. Company operates multiple affiliate marketing programs to market its various products. You hereby acknowledge and agree to abide by the following restrictions if and when you engage in affiliate marketing for Company.

a. For email and email newsletter campaigns, Company will provide you with the text, graphics and subjects lines for your use in such campaigns. Prior to starting each and any type of new email or email newsletter campaign promoting Company’s services, Affiliate MUST forward a copy of the email or email newsletter to Company for Company’s approval. Until Affiliate has been notified that Affiliate’s request to send the email or email newsletters is approved, Affiliate agrees not to conduct any type of emailing relating to Company’s services.

b. SPAMMING IS NOT PERMITTED. Spamming is any form of emailing for a commercial purpose that is unsolicited. If Affiliate spams, Company reserves the right at any time and without notice to terminate Affiliate’s status as an affiliate and to notify any third party affiliate programs to terminate Affiliate as an affiliate of Company. To prevent this from happening, Company has instituted an Anti-Spam Policy that sets forth the minimum standards to which Company requires its Affiliates to adhere in light of current laws, rules and regulations governing the transmission of email and the best practices in the industry. In the event any state or federal law, rule or regulation governing email communications is enacted or amended after the effective date of the Agreement, setting forth standards more restrictive than those set forth herein, the more restrictive standards contained in such enacted or amended law, rule or regulation shall apply to all Affiliates, notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Anti-Spam Policy. Any emails, email newsletters, or other forms of marketing campaigns by Affiliate MUST be conducted with “permission” or “opt-in” emails lists and must meet the following standards to prevent Affiliate’s account from being labeled as “SPAM”.

i) Affiliate may distribute emails solely to those persons who have actively opted-in to receive the email. The content of each email shall include (a) Affiliate’s correct point-of-origin email address, transmission information and routing information, (b) clear, prominent opt-out instructions in the email and in the first line of the text, if required by applicable law; (c) a toll-free telephone number or valid email address at which recipient may contact Affiliate to file complaints and/or opt-out; (d) accurate information regarding the manner in which the recipient opted-in to receive the email, (e) a valid postal address for Affiliate, and (f) the identifier and any disclaimers that Company assigned to the email. Affiliate shall not, without Company’s prior written approval, include any redirect links or frames in an email. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in no event may Affiliate forge email header information or otherwise engage in false or misleading conduct.

ii) Affiliate shall (a) make adequate disclosures as required by law to those on its email list(s) regarding Affiliate’s email and privacy and security policies; (b) respond to all complaints within one (1) business day after Affiliate becomes aware of the complaint, (c) provide Company with a copy of every complaint, immediately upon Affiliate’s receipt thereof, (d) implement any corrective action Company may require and (e) comply with any legal and/or other requirements Company may reasonably specify.

iii) Affiliate must provide a simple method for subscribers to the emails to opt-out of their subscriptions with clear and effective instructions for unsubscribing. As such, emailing from a list must cease promptly, but in no case more than three days, after a subscription is terminated.

iv) Affiliate must provide a manual opt-out procedure (e.g., an email address to which messages may be sent for further contact via email or telephone) available for those who wish to terminate their subscriptions but are unable or unwilling to follow standard automated procedures.

v) Affiliate must ensure that the impact of its email is minimized by proper list management procedures such as pruning of invalid or undeliverable addresses.

vi) Affiliate must take adequate steps to ensure that its lists are not used for abusive purposes such as emailing malicious emails or chain letters. Affiliate must use its lists and run its campaigns in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

vii) Affiliate must not email to an unsubscribe list. As such, Affiliate should maintain a “suppression list” of email addresses from which all subscription requests are rejected to prevent subscription of addresses appearing on the suppression list by unauthorized third parties.

viii) Affiliate shall examine the terms and conditions under which the email addresses on all third party lists were originally compiled to ensure that all recipients have in fact opted-in to the type of mailing list Affiliate intends to operate. Affiliate shall ensure that all third party lists used by or on behalf of Affiliate were collected by the third party source in accordance with the same standards listed above, and Affiliate must create a new emailing list when there is a substantive change in either the subject matter or frequency of messages. A notification about the new emailing list may be appropriate on the existing emailing list, but existing subscribers should never be subscribed automatically to the new list.

k. Affiliate also has the obligation to ensure that materials posted on its site or within emails do not violate or infringe upon the rights of any third party (including, for example, copyrights, trademarks, privacy or other personal or proprietary rights). Affiliate also must ensure that materials posted on its site are not in any way illegal, abusive, libelous, discriminatory, obscene, offensive, fraudulent, deceptive, or misleading.

7. COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT. Company has in place certain legally mandated procedures regarding allegations of copyright infringement occurring on the Site or with the Service. Company has adopted a policy that provides for the immediate suspension and/or termination of any Site or Service user who is found to have infringed on the rights of Company or of a third party, or otherwise violated any intellectual property laws or regulations. Company’s policy is to investigate any allegations of copyright infringement brought to its attention. If you have evidence, know, or have a good faith belief that your rights or the rights of a third party have been violated and you want Company to delete, edit, or disable the material in question, you must provide Company with all of the following information: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works; (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringed or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit Company to locate the material; (d) information reasonably sufficient to permit Company to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and if available, an electronic mail address at which you may be contacted; (e) a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. For this notification to be effective, you must provide it to Company’s designated agent at:
