9. AFFILIATE PROGRAM

A. Affiliate Links  We will provide You with a specific link or links which correspond to certain products we are offering for sale (collectively, the "Affiliate Link").  The Affiliate Link will be keyed to Your identity; the Affiliate Link will send online users to the Company's website or websites.
You agree to comply with this Agreement and all terms related to the use of the Affiliate Link at all times.  We may modify the Affiliate Link and will notify You if We do so.  In the event that a Prospect has multiple Affiliate cookies (“Cookies”), the most recently acquired Cookie will determine which Affiliate is credited with a Sale (defined below).

B. No Cookie Stuffing  You agree not to use cookie "stuffing," or other techniques which may incorporate a tracking code without specific knowledge of the online user.  You agree not to install adware or spyware that redirect all search queries for Products to Affiliate’s Site or the Website.  You may not utilize fake or stolen information to generate Sales.

C. No Fraudulent Practices  Affiliate is not permitted to engage in any unlawful or deceptive actions with respect to search engine optimization, including, but not limited to, using any technique that generates paid search results based on any trademarks of Company, any brand name of Company, or based on the trademarks or brand name of any competitor of Company, or any other third party.

D. Qualified Purchases  In order to be eligible for payment, a Prospect’s purchase must be a "Qualified Purchase".  A Qualified Purchase is each time a Prospect clicks through the Affiliate Link posted on the Affiliate Site and completes a sale (“Sale”) of the Product through the Company’s Website, however, Qualified Purchases:

i. Must not be referred by any other partner or affiliate links of the Company (in other words, Qualified Purchases are only available through Your specific Affiliate Link);
ii. Must not be purchased by an already-existing partner or affiliate of the Company;
iii. Must not be purchased prior to the Affiliate being accepted into the Affiliate Program;
iv. Must only be purchased through a properly-tracking Affiliate Link;
v. Must not be purchased in violation of any of our legal terms or Service Agreement;
vi. Must not be fraudulent in any way, in the Company's sole and exclusive discretion;
vii. Must not have been induced by the Affiliate offering the Prospect any coupons, discounts, cash rebates, or other monetary incentives.

For each Qualified Purchase You will be eligible to receive a percentage of the sale (“Commission”) as described in the Commission Schedule located in the Affiliate Center portion of our Website.  The Company may unilaterally change or modify the Commission Schedule at any time, for any reason, with or without notice.  A change to the Commission Schedule will be effective as of the date the new Commission Schedule is posted, and such changes will not be retroactive (i.e., for Sales completed prior to a change the governing Commission Schedule at the time of the Sale will control).

Commissions are paid only for transactions that actually occur between Company and a Prospect and in which payment is actually received by the Company.  You will not be paid a Commission on a Product that is returned, refunded or canceled.  If You are paid a Commission on a Product that is later returned, refunded or canceled, Company may deduct the amount of the Commission previously paid to You from future Commissions

You will not be paid any Commissions for purchases made on Your own account(s).  You are not permitted to make Product purchases from Company under the name of another person or entity, under a fictitious name, or under any name merely for the purpose of obtaining Commissions.  You may not pay for another person’s or entity’s Product purchase.

E. Company Discretion  We will determine in our sole and exclusive discretion whether a Sale is a Qualified Purchase eligible for Commission.  We reserve the right to reject Sales that do not comply with the terms of this Agreement.

If the Company, in its sole and exclusive discretion, determines that any Sale was procured fraudulently or as a result of any violation of this Agreement or applicable law, no Commission will be paid for such Sale and for past sales determined to be in violation, and such payments may be deducted from your future Commissions.  For a violation by You under this Section, Company may terminate this Agreement immediately and Company shall have no further obligation or liability to You.
