– Once you start sharing your Affiliate Link with others, you will be able to see the following information in the Affiliate Centre on the Link Tracking Stats tab (1) Number of people who have clicked on your links and (2) Number of sales you’ve referred.
The following is a summary of the services that you will provide to us as an Affiliate:

– You will receive express written permission to use any third party’s copyrighted material, whether it be a writing, an image, or any other copyrightable work.
– You will disclose all endorsements, reviews, testimonials on our products and services, as well as relationships between other types of content websites (forums, blogs, microblogs, and other Social Media channels) in a separate policy on the affiliate sites. When there exists a connection between the endorser and the seller of the advertised product, it is imperative that such a connection is “fully disclosed.” We encourage the underlying idea of this approach and strongly encourage our partners to adhere to these principles.
– We also reserve the right to terminate our relationship with any non-compliant affiliates.
– We have the right to monitor your site at any time to determine if you are following the terms and conditions of this Agreement. We may notify you of any changes to your site that we feel should be made or to make sure that your links to our website are appropriate and to notify you further of any changes that we feel should be made. If you do not make the changes to your site that we feel are necessary, we reserve the right to terminate your participation in the Affiliate Program.
– You must not promote, include or incorporate in your site or advertising any sexually explicit materials, violence, discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age, illegal activities, any materials which infringe or assist others to infringe on any copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property rights or to violate the law, use of “American Posture Institute” “API” “Dr Krista Burns” “Dr Mark Wade” “CPE” “Certified Posture Expert” “CPN” “Certified Posture Neurologist” “Posture Neurology” “The Spinal Push Test” “The Neurological Scan” or variations or misspellings thereof (or our intellectual property) in its domain name, or are otherwise in any way unlawful, harmful, threatening, defamatory, obscene, harassing, or racially, ethnically, or otherwise objectionable to us in our sole discretion or the use of software downloads that potentially enable diversions of commission from other affiliates in our program.
– You may not create or design the Affiliate Website or any other website that you operate, explicitly or in a manner that resembles our website nor design the Affiliate Website in a manner that leads customers to believe you are us.
– You are free to promote your own websites, but naturally any promotion that our Intellectual Property and any related products could be perceived by the public or the press as a joint effort. You should know that certain forms of advertising are always prohibited by us. For example, advertising commonly referred to as “spamming” is unacceptable to us and could cause damage to our name. Other generally prohibited forms of advertising include the use of unsolicited commercial email (UCE), postings to non-commercial newsgroups, and cross-posting to multiple newsgroups at once. In addition, you may not advertise in any way that effectively conceals or misrepresents your identity, your domain name, or your return email address. You may use mailings to customers to promote us so long as the recipient is already a customer or subscriber of your services or website, and recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings. Also, you may post to newsgroups to promote us so long as the news group specifically welcomes commercial messages. At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your Affiliate Websites as independent from us. If it comes to our attention that you are spamming, we will consider that cause for immediate termination of this Agreement and your participation in the Affiliate Program. Any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.
– Affiliates that exclusively bid in their Pay-Per-Click campaigns on keywords such as “American Posture Institute” “API” “Dr Krista Burns” “Dr Mark Wade” “CPE” “Certified Posture Expert” “CPN” “Certified Posture Neurologist” “Posture Neurology” “The Spinal Push Test” “The Neurological Scan” and/or any misspellings or similar alterations of these – be it separately or in combination with other keywords – and do not direct the traffic from such campaigns to their own website prior to redirecting it to ours, will be considered trademark violators and will be banned from the Affiliate Program. We will do everything possible to contact the partner prior to the ban. However, we reserve the right to expel any trademark violator from our Affiliate Program without prior notice and on the first occurrence of such PPC bidding behavior.
– Affiliates are not prohibited from keying in prospect’s information into the lead form as long as the prospects’ information is real and true and these are valid leads (i.e. sincerely interested in our services).
– Affiliates shall not transmit any so-called “interstitials,” “ParasitewareTM” “Parasitic Marketing,” “Shopping Assistance Application,” “Toolbar Installations and/or Add-ons,” “Shopping Wallets,” or “deceptive pop-ups and/or pop-unders” to consumers from the time the consumer clicks a qualifying link until such time as the consumer has fully exited your site (i.e. no page from our site or any [or our content or branding is visible on the end user’s screen). As used herein “ParasitewareTM” and “Parasitic Marketing” shall mean an application that (a) through accidental or direct intent causes the overwriting of partner and non partner commission tracking cookies through any other means than a customer-initiated click on a qualifying link on a web page or email; (b) intercepts searches to redirect traffic through an installed software, thereby causing pop ups, commission tracking cookies to be put in place, or other commission tracking cookies to be overwritten where a user would under normal circumstances have arrived at the same destination through the results given by the search (search engines being, but not limited to, Google, MSN, Yahoo, Overture, AltaVista, Hotbot and similar search or directory engines); (c) set commission tracking cookies through loading of Merchant site in (Frames, hidden links, and automatic pop ups that open our site; (d) targets text on websites, other than those websites 100 percent owned by the application owner, for the purpose of contextual marketing; (e) removes, replaces or blocks the visibility of affiliate banners with any other banners, other than those that are on websites 100 percent owned by the owner of the application.
