No Frames: Affiliate may not put our websites in frames under any circumstances.
Referral URL: Affiliate may advertise our services using Affiliate's assigned URL (Universal Resource Locator) rather than, or in addition to, placing a link to our site on a Referring Website. Affiliate is solely responsible for ensuring that Affiliate's assigned URL is used in Affiliate's advertising, and Affiliate agrees that we can not calculate referral fees otherwise.
Bidding on Keywords: While Affiliate is allowed to promote our affiliate program by bidding on keywords in different search engines, Affiliate cannot bid on any keyword that contains words and phrases like trainpetdog, trainpetdog.com, train pet dog, dogtraininginstitute, dog training institute, dogtraininginstitute.com or any derivatives of such words and phrases. Affiliate cannot also directly link to our web site from the affiliate's ad in the search engines; the Affiliate must promote Affiliate's own web site which may in turn promote our site.
Affiliate agrees that we will terminate this Agreement, withhold all referral fees due and recover the referral fees arising from such activities that have already been paid to Affiliate, if Affiliate is found in violation of this policy.
No Spamming: Promoting our Products via unsolicited email is strictly prohibited, and affiliate agrees to not reference us in any way, shape, or form, in any email that Affiliate sends in which the recipient has not specifically asked to receive it. In the case of mailings which are conducted by a third party on Affiliate's behalf, Affiliate assumes full responsibility and is advised to perform due diligence to ensure that the mailing list is in fact 100% opt-in. Furthermore, Affiliate may not link to our site from any URL that is promoted via unsolicited email. Affiliate may reference our services in discussion groups, message boards, social networks, blogs, USENET newsgroups and other such online communities as long as this is done in a way that does not violate the conditions of participation in those communities.

Affiliate will not attempt to receive referral fees for any purchase made directly or indirectly by him/herself or by any person who is directly or indirectly related to the affiliate in a personal or professional capacity. Affiliate will not receive referral fees if Affiliate places an order on behalf of a Customer - for receiving referral fees, the Customer must place the order him/herself.
If Affiliate is found to have attempted to defraud us by trying to receive referral fees for any purchase made directly or indirectly by him/herself or by any person who is directly or indirectly related to the affiliate in a personal or professional capacity, such determination to be made by us at our sole discretion, Affiliate agrees that we will terminate this Agreement, withhold all referral fees due to Affiliate, and recover the referral fees arising from such activities that have already been paid to Affiliate.
Prices: Prices of our Products may be changed at any time, solely at our discretion, by posting the revised prices in our Website.

Definition Of Second-Tier Affiliates: A Second Tier Affiliate is defined as a third party that is in no way personally or professionally related to Affiliate. Affiliate is not permitted to register for our Affiliate Program more than once, and any attempt to artificially inflate Affiliate's referral fees will be grounds for immediate termination of this Agreement.
Affiliate understands that we monitor all affiliate registrations and orders, and agrees that we will terminate this Agreement and withhold all referral fees due if Affiliate is found in violation of this policy.
Referral Fee Payments: All referral fee payments are made through PayPal. We will send a PayPal payment in U.S. dollars for the applicable referral fees on or before the 10th day of each calendar month for the previous month's referral fees, as long as the amount due to Affiliate is more than or equal to the minimum payment amount noted in our web site. If the amount due to Affiliate is less than the minimum payment amount, the amount will be carried forward to the next month. Referral fee overpayments may be deducted from future payments or shall be reimbursed by the Affiliate within 7 days from the time that Affiliate receives a notice from us for such reimbursement, such reimbursements also being made using PayPal. An online statement of customer purchase activity is available to Affiliate at all times.
Returns And Cancellations: If referral fee qualifying orders are cancelled by Affiliate's customer, or if we have to issue a refund to Affiliate's customer for any reason, the corresponding referral fee(s) will be deducted from Affiliate's next monthly referral fee payment. If the said referral fee(s) are less than the amount due to Affiliate, the Affiliate will be billed for the balance amount and Affiliate will reimburse this balance amount to us within 7 days from the time that Affiliate receives a notice from us for such reimbursement, such reimbursements being made using PayPal.
Tax Reporting: Affiliate shall be responsible for all taxes and other similar levies applicable to the referral fees pursuant to any law or regulation. The Affiliate shall report the referral fees to its taxation authorities as required by law.

We are not responsible for any representations made by Affiliate which contradict our policies, and our policies will always determine the purchase price of our Products.
Service Interruption and Tracking: We will make every effort to ensure that our website is operational, and to track Affiliate's referred customers.

Please note that it is our intention never to terminate the Affiliate Program. However, we reserve the right to do so in response to changes in market conditions. The Affiliate may terminate the Agreement at any time by notifying us through email.

Agreement Modification: We may, in good faith, modify any of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement (including, but not limited to, the Referral Fee Amounts), at any time and in our sole discretion. It is our intention to keep Referral Fee Amounts as stated. However, we reserve the right to alter the Referral Fee Amounts at any time. Any credit accumulating after such change will be at the new rate, i.e. the Affiliate is not guaranteed to have the same rate as the one started with. This is not a loophole to defraud Affiliate, but a way for us to prepare for anything unforeseeable in the rapidly changing world of the Internet and electronic commerce. If any modification to this Agreement is not acceptable to the Affiliate, its only recourse is to terminate this Agreement.
Independent Investigation: Affiliate acknowledges that it has reviewed this Agreement and agrees to all its terms and conditions.
