This Affiliates Program Participation Requirements page is part of the Operating Agreement that governs your participation in the Affiliates Program. This page describes requirements and restrictions applicable to you as a Program participant. From time to time, we may modify the participation requirements described on this page in accordance with the Operating Agreement. All capitalized terms used below that are not defined on this page have the meanings given to them in the Operating Agreement.
You will ensure that your site is not unsuitable (as described in Section 2 of the Operating Agreement).
You will not display or otherwise use our or our affiliates’ trademarks or logos (including any UEPAKI Mark) except solely as expressly permitted under and in accordance with the Operating Agreement.
You will not remove, obscure, or alter, or make invisible, illegible, or indecipherable to visitors of your site, any “Privacy Information” link or any of our or our affiliates’ trademarks or logos (including any UEPAKI Mark) that we include in an Affiliate Link.
You will not sell, resell, redistribute, sublicense, or transfer any Content or any application that uses, incorporates, or displays any Content. For example, you will not use, or enable or facilitate the use of, Content on or within any application, platform, site, or service (including social networking sites) that requires you to sublicense or otherwise give any rights in or to any Content to any other person or entity, nor will you create links formatted with your Affiliate’s tag for, or display such links on, a site that is not your site.
You will promptly remove from your site and delete or otherwise destroy any Content that is no longer displayed on the UEPAKI Site or that we notify you is no longer available for your use.
You will not use any Content, including any name or likeness embodied in that Content, in a manner that implies a person’s or company’s endorsement or sponsorship of, or commercial tie-in or other association with, any product, service, party, or cause (including by placing unrelated third party materials in close proximity to Content).
You will not seek to purchase or register any Proprietary Term for use in any Search Engine; purchase, register, or otherwise use any Proprietary Term as or in a domain or subdomain name; or register or use any Proprietary Term as or in any Affiliates ID or “tag.” In addition to any other rights or remedies available to us, upon our request you will cause any Search Engine designated by us to exclude Proprietary Terms from keywords used to display your advertising content in association with search results (e.g., request exclusion by negative keyword bidding), assuming the Search Engine offers such exclusion capabilities.
You will not bid on or purchase keywords, search terms, or other identifiers (including Proprietary Terms) or otherwise participate in keyword auctions on any Search Engine if the resulting paid search advertisement is a Prohibited Paid Search Placement. You may purchase paid search advertisements and submit links to Search Engines to appear in response to a general Internet search query or keyword (i.e., in natural, free, organic, or unpaid search results), so long as you comply with the Operating Agreement and those paid or unpaid search results send users to your site and not directly or indirectly, via a Redirecting Link, to the UEPAKI Site.
You will not offer any person or entity any consideration or incentive (including any money, rebate, discount, points, donation to charity or other organization, or other benefit) for using Affiliate Links (e.g., by implementing any “rewards” or loyalty program that incentivizes persons or entities to visit the UEPAKI Site via your Affiliate Links).
You will not intercept, record, redirect, read, interpret, or fill in the contents of any electronic form or other material submitted to us by any person or entity.
You will not modify, redirect, suppress, or substitute the operation of any button, link, or other feature of the UEPAKI Site.
You will not make any orders or engage in other transactions of any kind on the UEPAKI Site on behalf of any other person or entity, or authorize, assist, or encourage any other person or entity to do so.
You will not take any action that could reasonably cause any customer confusion as to our relationship with you, or as to the site on which any functions or transactions (e.g., search, browse, or order) are occurring.
You will not include on your site, display, or otherwise use Affiliate Links or Content in connection with any spyware, malware, virus, worm, Trojan horse, or other malicious or harmful code, or any software application not expressly and knowingly authorized by users prior to being downloaded or installed on their computer or other electronic device.
You will not frame the UEPAKI Site, or any part of it, within your site. However, displaying an Affiliate Link on your site in accordance with the Operating Agreement will not be considered framing the UEPAKI Site.
You will not post or serve any Affiliate Links or other content promoting the UEPAKI Site within any pop-up or pop-under windows, transitional page ads, or layer ads around or in conjunction with the display of any site that is not your site.
You will not include any Affiliate Links in any content that you place on the UEPAKI Site (for example, in connection with any advertising service available through the UEPAKI Site or in a customer review, forum, list mania, guide, or any other customer-generated context available on the UEPAKI Site).
You will not attempt to circumvent the Affiliates Program Advertising Fee Schedule or artificially increase your advertising fees (e.g., by intentionally featuring, purchasing, or requesting or encouraging any other person or entity to purchase, low-price items offered on the UEPAKI Site (as determined by us) for the purpose of exceeding any advertising fee threshold, or by causing any page of the UEPAKI Site to open in a customer’s browser other than as a result of the customer clicking on an Affiliate Link on your site).
You will not attempt to intercept or redirect (including via software installed on users’ computers) traffic from or on, or divert advertising fees from, any site that participates in the Program.
You will not artificially generate clicks or impressions on your site or create Sessions on the UEPAKI Site, whether by way of a robot or software program or otherwise.
You will not display or otherwise use any of our customer reviews or star ratings, in part or in whole, on your site unless you have obtained a link to that customer review or star rating through the Product Advertising API and you comply with the requirements set forth in the License Agreement.
You will not cloak, hide, spoof, or otherwise obscure the URL of your site containing Affiliate Links (including by use of a redirecting page) such that we cannot reasonably determine the site from which a customer clicks through such Affiliate Link to the UEPAKI Site.
