The following are the terms and conditions governing your (hereinafter "Affiliate") relationship with CPL network AdHooked LLC, (hereinafter "AdHooked LLC") and the use of any website associated with AdHooked LLC services (hereinafter "Site"). Affiliate agrees to use the Site and any additional services offered by AdHooked LLC only in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. AdHooked LLC reserves the right to make changes to the Site and these Terms and Conditions at any time. Affiliate's continued use of the Site after any such modification and notification thereof (which may be provided by e-mail to the email address provided in the course of Affiliate's registration with AdHooked LLC) shall constitute Affiliate's consent to such modification.
These Terms and Conditions for Affiliates are effective as of 03th December 2008
Registration with AdHooked LLC shall not confer any right on Affiliate to market or promote any Programs (as defined under section 2) made available by AdHooked LLC on the Site on behalf of its clients (the "Advertisers"). Participation by Affiliate in the AdHooked LLC affiliate lead generation program is subject to review and approval by AdHooked LLC. All prospective affiliates need official approval from AdHooked LLC before they can become Affiliates. Official approval requires meeting the criteria listed under Sections 1.1 and 1.2 below, however approval is not automatically granted upon fulfillment of said criteria. AdHooked LLC reserves the right to withhold or refuse approval for any reason at AdHooked LLC sole discretion. Once Affiliate has been accepted into the Program, Affiliate's continued right to participate is conditioned upon Affiliate's ongoing compliance with all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Failure of the Affiliate to observe the terms and conditions of this Agreement will disqualify Affiliate from participating in the Program. Affiliate may re-qualify for program upon proof of compliance with terms and conditions of this Agreement, subject to approval by AdHooked LLC. Affiliate shall promptly notify AdHooked LLC in the event of a material change in its business practices or strategy. Approval of a Affiliate can be withdrawn by AdHooked LLC, at any time for any reason.
In order to be eligible to become a Affiliate, all websites, affiliated websites and e-mail distribution lists (collectively the "Media") must meet the following criteria, at a minimum: All Affiliates that wish to send advertisements via email must have the consent of the consumer to send such email and each Affiliate shall maintain records evidencing such consent including, without limitation:
The content of Affiliate's Media shall be subject to AdHooked LLC subjective approval and must comply with all applicable laws and regulations (including all laws respecting intellectual property rights) and, in any event, shall not include the following:
2.1. The Site allows AdHooked LLC to post offers of advertising programs sponsored by AdHooked LLC or its affiliates on the system ("Program(s)"). The Programs will specify the amount and terms under which Affiliate will receive payment when the applicable Program's requirements are fulfilled. Compensation is derived from a specified event ("Event") identified in a Program, such as clicks, click-throughs, sales, registrations, impressions and leads. If Affiliate accepts a Program, Affiliate agrees to place that Program's advertising creative (including designated "subject" and "from" lines, the Advertiser's CAN-SPAM Act of 2003; Regulation (EU) 2016/679 [GDPR] disclosures and any other disclosures provided therein) ("Specified Advertising Materials") on Affiliate's Media. Affiliate shall display the Specified Advertising Materials exactly as they appear on the Site and will not alter them in any way. Failure to adhere to this requirement may, in addition to all other remedies available to AdHooked LLC, result in termination of Affiliate. AdHooked LLC may terminate a Program at any time, at AdHooked LLC`s sole discretion. AdHooked LLC shall take reasonable efforts, including but not limited to e-mail communications, to notify Affiliate of such termination. AdHooked LLC is responsible for displaying and administering all active Programs and tracking the payments owed.
2.2 (b). Affiliate may not use an advertiser's name (including any abbreviation thereof) in the originating email address line or subject line of any email transmission.
2.2 (c). No Misleading Headers or Other Masking of E-mail Origin. An email may not include falsification of header information, false registrations for e-mail accounts or IP addresses used in connection with e-mail ads, and retransmissions of an e-mail ad for the purpose of concealing its origin. Affiliate and/or their e-mail delivery providers are prohibited from relaying or retransmitting e-mails from a computer or computer network that was accessed without authorization.
2.2 (d). Subject lines may not be false or misleading such that it would likely mislead a reasonable recipient as to the contents or subject matter of the message. Affiliate may only use approved Specified Advertising Materials, including subject lines available provided by AdHooked LLC or subject lines for which Affiliate has documented approval from AdHooked LLC.
2.2 (e). Specified Advertising Materials consisting of e-mail messages must contain clear identification. Messages containing advertisements or solicitations must identify themselves as such, and do so by "clear and conspicuous" means, for example, by stating in the message body "This advertisement is brought to you by (Your Company)". Further, the sender must identify itself as the initiator and sender of the e-mail including company name, e-mail and physical address.
2.2 (f). Effective Method of Opting Out of Future Mailings. Senders of commercial e-mails must give recipients an effective means of requesting not to receive future e-mail ads from that sender. At a minimum, the affiliate must give the recipient the ability to send a reply message to unsubscribe, opt out via postal letter and provide a functioning unsubscribe link that must remain in operation for thirty (30) days from the date of the original e-mail transmission.
2.2 (g). All unsubscribe requests must be implemented within ten (10) business days from their receipt. You may not sell or transfer an e-mail address once someone has opted out of receiving future communications, whether from only the advertiser or globally.
2.2 (h). No Random or Invalid Generation of E-mail Addresses. Affiliate is responsible for knowing the source of its e-mail list. E-mail addresses may not be obtained by the use of a program for random generation of e-mail addresses, and/or "scraping" websites or online services. Affiliate must have full opt-in data for all recipients in its database.
AdHooked LLC shall be constantly monitoring, on its own or with the assistance of third parties, the Affiliates for compliance with these Terms and Conditions, without limiting the generality of the foregoing:
3.1. All Affiliates will be monitored by AdHooked LLC (or a third party retained by AdHooked LLC for such purposes) for compliance with applicable legal requirements, with respect to honoring unsubscribe requests and compliance with the use of the Specified Advertising Materials. If the monitoring is done by a third party, such third party will share all such information with AdHooked LLC.
3.2. Each unsubscribe list furnished to a Affiliate shall be separately and technologically identified so that AdHooked LLC will be able to ensure that each Affiliate is not disseminating or otherwise using the unsubscribe list other than in a manner required by applicable law. Affiliate must not send further e-mails to names already on or newly added to the unsubscribe list.
AdHooked LLC grants Affiliate a revocable, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, non-exclusive limited license to use the Site (including any Specified Advertising Materials posted thereon) and any data, reports, information or analyses arising out of such use (the "Site Data") solely for the purpose of marketing or promoting the Programs hereunder and subject to these Terms and Conditions and the applicable Program Terms. If a Affiliate also maintains its own network of affiliates, such Affiliate may not provide the Program to its affiliates, without the prior written consent of AdHooked LLC. Under such conditions, Affiliate will require its affiliates to agree to and comply with these Terms and Conditions. If a Affiliate fails to adhere to the foregoing requirements, in addition to any other remedies available to AdHooked LLC, Affiliate shall forfeit its rights to any amounts owed by AdHooked LLC to Affiliate. Affiliate acknowledges and agrees that Affiliate does not have, nor will it claim any right, title or interest in the Site software, applications, data, methods of doing business or any elements thereof, or any content provided on the Site (including the Specified Advertising Materials). Affiliate may only access the Site via web browser, e-mail or in a manner approved by AdHooked LLC. Affiliate will not attempt in any way to alter, modify, eliminate, conceal, or otherwise render inoperable or ineffective the Site tags, source codes, links, pixels, modules or other data provided by or obtained from AdHooked LLC that allows AdHooked LLC to measure ad performance and provide its service. In addition, Affiliate acknowledges that all non-public information, data and reports received from AdHooked LLC hereunder or as part of the services hereunder is proprietary to and owned by AdHooked LLC. If instructed to do so by AdHooked LLC and/or if Affiliate shall be terminated by AdHooked LLC, Affiliate will immediately destroy and discontinue the use of any AdHooked LLC data, including Site Data, and any other material owned by AdHooked LLC or the Advertisers.
Affiliate agrees that Affiliate will not approach or attempt to engage in a contract with any of AdHooked LLC`s clients (each such client, individually a "Client" and all such clients, collectively "Clients") directly or indirectly via a Client's ad agency, broker or any other person or entity. AdHooked LLC will promptly reply in writing to any inquiries received from Affiliate regarding the status of any person or entity as a AdHooked LLC Client so as to aid Affiliate in its efforts to comply with the non-solicitation provisions of this Agreement. Because AdHooked LLC will be irreparably harmed by Affiliate's conduct, and because the true extent of such harm will be impossible to quantify, monetary damages will not be an adequate remedy for any such conduct. Affiliate agrees that AdHooked LLC shall be entitled to injunctive relief precluding Affiliate from taking or continuing any action or conduct in violation of this provision, to be issued by any court of competent jurisdiction upon a showing of any such violative conduct by Affiliate.
AdHooked LLC shall provide Affiliate with material to create a website for the purpose of search engine optimization, or Affiliate can create its own website. In either event, no website shall be released online, and non-submission, inclusion or any traffic can be sent to it, prior to AdHooked LLC`s review and approval of it. If Affiliate already has its own website, Affiliate's website will be subject to AdHooked LLC's review and approval. Approval shall be written or by electronic submission. All Program related websites will contain links ("Links") provided by AdHooked LLC directing traffic to product sales web pages served by AdHooked LLC. Affiliate's selection of entities to be included on any such website is also subject to AdHooked LLC's review and approval, of which shall not be unreasonably withheld. Should any of AdHooked LLC's Client(s) provide content which includes imbedded bots, Data Miners, links or other creative, graphic, text or html, all content shall remain at all times the sole property of AdHooked LLC.
Affiliate agrees to comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including but not limited to, those enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the state attorneys general. Failure to comply with such laws and regulations will result in termination of a Affiliate's account. Compliance shall be determined by AdHooked LLC at its sole discretion.
Affiliate agrees to use the Links in the exact form that AdHooked LLC delivers them to Affiliate. Affiliate agrees not to modify, alter, delete, or adapt the Links in any manner without AdHooked LLC's written approval. Links must be served from the AdHooked LLC server, unless otherwise permitted in written form by AdHooked LLC. Affiliate shall not take any actions to impede the action of or to disable any such links. Affiliate agrees to, if requested by AdHooked LLC, modify or alter Links or Tracking devices in the manner requested by AdHooked LLC. Affiliate further agrees that it shall in no event modify or interfere with Tracking devices unless specifically instructed to do so by AdHooked LLC in accordance with the previous sentence.
AdHooked LLC owns all rights, title, and interest to Links and user data collected and derived through the activities countenanced pursuant to this Agreement. AdHooked LLC may choose to imbed certain data mining tools within Links from time to time ("Data Miners"). Any data derived by any such Data Miner shall be the sole property of AdHooked LLC. AdHooked LLC may, from time to time, opt to share data derived from Data Miners with Affiliate to help Affiliate optimize the quality of leads generated from Affiliate's activities or to otherwise improve the quality, functionality and mutual profitability of the activities of the parties under this Agreement. If AdHooked LLC does share data derived from Data Miners with Affiliate, Affiliate agrees that this data will be used solely by Affiliate for the purposes for which it is provided to Affiliate and will not be shared by Affiliate with any other third party or entity without the written approval of AdHooked LLC. Should AdHooked LLC choose to provide advertising creative content, web design services or other web content of any type ("Web Content") to Affiliate, Affiliate shall use such Web Content: (i) in exactly the form that it is delivered to the Affiliate by AdHooked LLC without modification unless approved by AdHooked LLC in written form; (ii) only in the manner expressly permitted by AdHooked LLC in written form and only until AdHooked LLC shall request that Affiliate discontinue its use of such advertising creative, at which time Affiliate shall discontinue such use within two (2) business days of being requested by AdHooked LLC to do so.
AdHooked LLC actively monitors traffic for deceptive or fraudulent activity. If deception or fraud is detected as determined by AdHooked LLC sole discretion, Affiliate's account will be made inactive pending further investigation. Affiliate accounts are flagged that, among other things:
All the campaigns, using co-registrations will be considered as fraudulent and won't be paid.
Affiliate will be paid per the terms of each Program. AdHooked LLC shall pay any amounts due approximately fifteen (15) days after the cash out request done at the platform, less any taxes required to be withheld under applicable law, provided that AdHooked LLC may, in its discretion, withhold payments until such time as the Advertiser has paid AdHooked LLC for any Program. In addition to any other remedies that may be available to AdHooked LLC, in the event of any breaches by Affiliate of these Terms and Conditions, Affiliate shall forfeit its rights to any amounts owed by AdHooked LLC to Affiliate. AdHooked LLC reserves the right to withhold or reduce any payments owed to Affiliate as a consequence of any offsets taken by Advertisers for fraudulent traffic, invalid Events, technical errors, tracking discrepancies and the like. AdHooked LLC shall compile, calculate and electronically deliver data required to determine Affiliate's billing and compensation. Any questions regarding the data provided by AdHooked LLC need to be submitted in written form within ten (10) business days of receipt, otherwise the information will be deemed accurate and accepted as such by Affiliate. AdHooked LLC will not pay for any Events that occur before a Program is initiated, or after a Program terminates.
