Affiliate Agreement Terms & Conditions

 

By participating in the marketing launch (the “Promotion”) of any of our products or programs (the “Product”) conducted by Women on the Leading Edge, Inc. (the “Promoter”) you (the “referral partner”) agree to the following Terms and Conditions (the “Agreement”).

ELIGIBILITY
Affiliate Partner must be 18 years or older to participate in Promotion. Promoter reserves the unconditional right to accept or deny any Affiliate Partner who enters the Promotion on the Promoter’s website at http://womenontheleadingedge.net (the “Enrollment Site”) or who drives traffic to any of the Promoter’s marketing websites (the “Sites”).

Affiliate Partner must be in good standing with the Federal Trade Commission (the “FTC”) and the Promoter, and in compliance with all FTC guidelines and the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

Affiliate Partner agrees and understands that if its marketing, websites, emails or any other communications associated with or for this Promotion are deemed inappropriate that Referral partner will be deemed, at the sole discretion of the Promoter, ineligible to participate in the Promotions and disqualified from receiving any recognition, commissions, prizes or any other compensation or further communication from the Promoter.

Affiliate Partner will be immediately removed from all Promotions and from Promoter’s Affiliate Partner Program — resulting in a forfeiture in all contests and commissions — and will be in violation of this Agreement IF its marketing for this Promotion or for its own sites:

  1. contains, promotes or links to sexually explicit or violent material;
  2. promotes, depicts or links to material that promotes or depicts discrimination based on race, gender, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, sexual orientation, or age;
  3. contains unlawful material, including but not limited to materials that may violate another’s intellectual property rights, or links to a site that contains such material;
  4. contains information regarding, promotes or links to a site that provides information or promotes illegal activity; or
  5. uses Promoter’s videos, images, banners, likeness, or brand name in or on their websites, thus creating market and consumer confusion (which is illegal and generally referred to as copyright or trademark infringement). To be clear, you may not use our banners, images or videos, unless specifically supplied to you, as if they are your own on your own sites or any other sites, as it may cause a customer to opt-in thinking they are opting in to our communications rather than yours. Clearly, the best practice to generate sales is to establish your own brand, identity, and sites, then to authentically recommend our program, not pretend to be us.
  6. uses any “bots” or automated link generating, spamming, or social media spamming techniques to perpetuate their links automatically or anonymously. You should only participate in this competition by sending your link directly to your email list, your social media contacts, or through ads you have placed that comply with all the rules on this page.
  7. defames, slanders, or posts rude or inappropriate comments about Promoter or any public figure or member of our community. Any rude communication with Promoter’s staff also warrants termination of the referral partner agreement and a forfeiture of all standings, prizes, and commissions.
  8. uses any of our brands in the root of a URL link. This means you cannot use, for example, “womenontheleadingedge.com” in your website domain before the (dot), However, this would be okay: www.YourSite.com/womenontheleadingedge.com. So, to be clear, you cannot have any of our brand names, or any mis-spelling or alternative use/spelling of our brand names, before the (dot) in .com,
  9. Promoter reserves the right to disqualify Affiliate partners from our Affiliate Partner Program, cancel pending commissions based on inappropriate behavior or marketing by the Affiliate Partner, and to amend this Promotion or Agreement at any time without notification to Affiliate Partner. SPAM AND UNSOLICITED EMAIL
    Affiliate Partner agrees NOT to send any unsolicited email to any party during the Promotion. Promoter has ZERO tolerance toward any Affiliate Partner who spams any party or individual, period. If Affiliate Partner is caught spamming by “bots” or automated or anonymous social media posting, they will be removed from the Promoter’s Affiliate Partner Program, and their commissions or pending commissions will be canceled and/or forfeited. Spam is defined as emailing or posting to anyone who has not requested information via email or any website, and also includes “spamming search engines” or social media with links. Affiliate Partner agrees to abide by all Federal Trade Commission Guidelines and the U.S. Federal Can-SPAM Act.EARNING DISCLAIMER
