All endorsements, reviews, and testimonials on RD2RD’s products and services, as well as relationships between RD2RD and other types of content websites, including but not limited to forums, blogs, microblogs, and other social media channels, must be clearly disclosed in a separate policy on the affiliated sites. FTC mandates that when a connection exists between an endorser and the seller of an advertised product, it is imperative that such a connection is fully disclosed. It is the FTC’s position that an end-user has the right to be informed of and understand the existence of an endorser-sponsor relationship. We agree with this underlying idea and approach and strongly encourage our Affiliates to adhere to the FTC’s rules. We also reserve the right to terminate our relationship with any Affiliate whom we deem to be noncompliant with these FTC rules.
Rights and Obligations of RD2RD
- RD2RD reserves the right to monitor your site at any time during your participation in the Program to ensure that your site is up-to-date and is in compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. In the course of our review, we may notify you of any changes that we feel can and should be made to your site to ensure that the use and/or placement of Your Links are appropriate and comply with RD2RD guidelines. In some instances, we may feel that certain changes to your site are necessary, and failure to implement the changes may result in termination of your Affiliate status.
- RD2RD may modify any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement at any time and at our sole discretion. Modifications may include, but are not limited to, changes in the payment procedures and Program rules. In such an event, you will be notified by email to the address in our records. If any enacted modification is unacceptable to you, your only option is to terminate this Agreement. Your continued participation in the Program or use of Affiliate Services, following notice of the modification and posting of the modified Agreement on the RD2RD website, will constitute your agreement to the pertinent modifications.
- Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause, by providing the other party written notice in the form of mail, email, or fax.
- This Agreement will immediately terminate upon any breach of this Agreement by you. RD2RD reserves the right to terminate this Agreement and your participation in the Program immediately and without notice to you for any fraud or abuse of Your Link or the Program. If such fraud or abuse is detected, RD2RD shall not be liable to you for any commissions resulting from such sales.
Payment and Returns
- All monies due to Affiliates pursuant to the Program will be paid to such Affiliates within approximately twenty-one (21) days following the last day of the month in which a qualifying sale is made. RD2RD reserves the right to delay payment. Monthly payments will be made through registered PayPal accounts for all Affiliates. RD2RD reserves the right to add, remove or otherwise alter the specified payment method used by the Program as detailed in this Agreement.
- You are free to promote your own websites, but naturally any promotion that mentions RD2RD could be perceived by the public or the press as a joint effort. Be advised that certain forms of advertising are generally prohibited by RD2RD, as they could cause damage to our brand and reputation, these include, but are not limited to: (i) advertising commonly referred to as “spamming”, (ii) the use of unsolicited commercial email (UCE), (iii) postings to non-commercial newsgroups, (iv) cross-posting to multiple newsgroups at once, (v) the use of Pay-Per-Click campaigns and do not direct the traffic from such campaigns to their own website prior to redirecting it to ours, and (vi) cybersquatting or typo-squatting on trademark-related domains. 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 RD2RD so long as the recipient is already a customer or subscriber of your services or website, and recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings. Also, you may post to newsgroups to promote RD2RD.com so long as the news group specifically welcomes commercial messages. At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your websites as independent from RD2RD. If it comes to our attention that you are spamming, or are otherwise in violation of the above Promotion Restrictions, your participation in the Program will be immediately terminated, and any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.
- RD2RD does not accept Coupon Affiliate websites. A “Coupon Affiliate” is defined as a user whose business model substantially consists of making coupons available. Whether a site is classified as a Coupon Affiliate shall be determined by RD2RD in its sole discretion. Factors that may lead to classification as a “Coupon Affiliate” include, but are not limited to (i) the presence of coupon offerings, especially from many different merchants, on the affiliate’s website, especially if such coupons represent many different merchants and/or are indexed or are organized in a directory; (ii) the presence of certain words (or variations or misspellings thereof) in the website’s URL or prominently featured in the website’s content, such as “coupons,” “deals” or “savings”; or (iii) a website that is focused on other merchants and the discounts or promotions offered by them, rather than on products, and that features little original, human-generated content.
- Affiliate shall not transmit any so-called “interstitials,” “Parasiteware™,” “Parasitic Marketing,” “Shopping Assistance Application,” “Toolbar Installations and/or Add-ons,” “Shopping Wallets,” or “deceptive pop-ups and/or pop-unders” to consumers from the time the consumer clicks a qualifying link until such time as the consumer has fully exited RD2RD’s site (i.e., no page from our site or any RD2RD content or branding is visible on the end user’s screen). As used herein “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 RD2RD’s site in IFrames, hidden links, and automatic pop ups that open RD2RD’s site; (d) targets text on websites, other than those websites 100 percent owned by the application owner, for the purpose of contextual marketing; or (e) removes, replaces or blocks the visibility of Affiliate banners with any other banners, other than those that are on websites 100 percent owned by the owner of the application.
- RD2RD grants to you a nonexclusive, nontransferable, revocable right to (i) access our site through HTML links solely in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, and (ii) solely in connection with such links, to use our logos, trade names, trademarks, and similar identifying material (collectively, the “Licensed Materials”) that we provide to you or authorize for such purpose. You are only entitled to use the Licensed Materials to the extent that you are an Affiliate in good standing with the Program. You agree that all uses of the Licensed Materials will be on behalf of RD2RD and the goodwill associated therewith will inure to the sole benefit of RD2RD.
