  1. Promotion Restrictions

8.1. You are free to promote your own web sites, but naturally any promotion that mentions Alice&Patrick could be perceived as a joint effort.

The following forms of advertising are prohibited by the Alice&Patrick Affiliate Program:

  • Any use of “spamming”, pay per click apps or use of a third party or otherwise automatic means of contacting customers
  • All contact must be completed by you in line with the rules and regulations detailed in the terms and conditions of the Alice&Patrick Affiliate Program
  • Advertising the product along with any competitor products where the competitor product has been prioritised or favoured as more desirable
  • 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 Alice&Patrick so long as the recipient is already a customer or subscriber of your services or web site, and recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings.
  • Also, you may post to newsgroups to promote Alice&Patrick so long as the news group specifically welcomes commercial messages.
  • At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your web sites as independent from Alice&Patrick, identifying yourself as an affiliate, not a staff member.
  • 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 nymphandco.com Affiliate Program.
  • Any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.

We will do everything possible to contact the affiliate 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.

As used herein a. “Parasiteware™” and “Parasitic Marketing” shall mean an application that (a) through accidental or direct intent causes the overwriting of affiliate and non-affiliate 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 Alice&Patricks site in IFrames, hidden links and automatic pop ups that open Alice&Patricks site; (d) targets text on web sites, other than those web sites 100% 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 web sites 100% owned by the owner of the application.
