9. Promotion Restrictions
9.1. You are free to promote your own web sites, but naturally any promotion that mentions ReMarksPDF.com could be perceived by the public or the press as a joint effort. You should know that certain forms of advertising are always prohibited by ReMarksPDF.com.
9.2 Advertising commonly referred to as "spamming" is unacceptable to us and could cause damage to our name and reputation. We have zero tolerance towards any affiliate associated with spam. If it comes to our attention that you are spamming and that this can be verified, we will consider that cause for immediate termination of this Agreement and your participation in the ReMarksPDF.com Affiliate Program. Any pending commission owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.
For the purposes of this Agreement SPAM is defined as e-mailing anyone, in bulk, or by single mailing, about ReMarksPDF.com, our products or services, who has not specifically requested the information directly from the affiliate. Mailings to names or lists that have been purchased, including but not limited to so called co-reg lists, regardless of the opt-in procedures, are not permitted.
ReMarksPDF.com considers any type of advertisement about RemarksPDF.com, its products or services, posted to a Newsgroup or Chat Room, in violation of their posting rules, to be spam. Other generally prohibited forms of advertising include the use of unsolicited commercial email (UCE), postings to non-commercial newsgroups and cross-posting to multiple newsgroups at once.
You agree to comply with all U.S. State and Federal spam laws, including but not limited to the Federal CAN_SPAM Act. You agree to indemnify ReMarksPDF.com for any damages or fines it may be liable to pay as a result of any breaches of anti-SPAM legislation caused by you.
9.3 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 ReMarksPDF.com so long as the recipient is already a customer or subscriber of your services or web site, and recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings. You may post to newsgroups to promote ReMarksPDF.com so long as the news group specifically welcomes commercial messages. At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your web sites as independent from ReMarksPDF.com.
9.4 Affiliates that among other keywords or exclusively bid in their Pay-Per-Click campaigns on keywords such as ReMarksPDF.com, ReMarks, ReMarksPDF, ReMarksXML, www.remarks, www.remarkspdf, www.remarksxml, www.remarks.com, www.remarkspdf.com, remarksxml.com, and/or any misspellings or similar alterations of these – be it separately or in combination with other keywords – and do not direct the traffic from such campaigns to their own website prior to re-directing it to ours, will be considered trademark violators, and will be banned from ReMarksPDF’s Affiliate Program. We will do everything possible to contact the affiliate prior to the ban. However, we reserve the right to expel any trademark violator from the ReMarksPDF Affiliate Program without prior notice, and on the first occurrence of such pay-per-click bidding behavior.
9.5 Affiliates are not prohibited from keying in prospect’s information into the lead form as long as the prospects’ information is real and true, and these are valid leads (i.e. sincerely interested in ReMarksPDF’s products or services).
9.6 Affiliates 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 on a qualifying link until such time as the consumer has fully exited ReMarksPDF’s site (i.e., no page from our site or any ReMarksPDF.com’s content or branding is visible on the end-user’s screen).
In this Agreement, “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 ReMarksPDF site in IFrames, hidden links and automatic pop ups that open ReMarksPDF.com’s site; (d) targets text on web sites, other than those web sites 100% owned by the application owner, for the purpose of contextual marketing; (e) removes, replaces or blocks the visibility of Affiliate banners with any other banners, other than those that are on web sites 100% owned by the owner of the application.
9.7 Affiliates agree not to register a domain name including the words “ReMarks”, “Remarkspdf” or “Remarksxml” or and/or any misspellings or similar alterations of these words.
