Introduction This Agreement (hereinafter the "Agreement") is made by and agreed to between Performance-Based.com. ("Performance-Based.com"), and you ("You"). As an application service provider, Performance-Based.com facilitates "Performance Marketing Programs" through provision of services ("Network Service") via the Internet. A "Performance Marketing Program" (or "Program") is where a person, entity, publisher or its agent operating one or more "Web site(s)" (domain or portion of a domain within the Internet and/or subscription email list(s) ("Publisher") may earn financial compensation ("Payouts") for "Transactions" (actions by Visitors as defined by the Advertiser) made from such Publisher's Web site or subscription emails through a click made by a "Visitor" (any person or entity that is not the Publisher or the Publisher's agent) through an Internet connection ("Link") to a Web site or Web site content operated by another person or entity ("Advertiser"). The Advertiser compensates the Publisher, in accordance with this Agreement and the Program Payout specifications. 1 Relationship. As a Publisher, You agree: (a) not to mislead others; and/or (b) no to engage in spamming via UBE or UCE or scumware. (c) That beastiality sites are not allowed (d) That child pornogrophy is not allowed, and if noted, will be reported immediately to the appropriate local and federal authorities. Performance-Based.com may deem Your promotional activities inappropriate and a material breach of this Agreement based upon the foregoing, and/or on reasonable Internet business standards as they may evolve. If You are in breach of this Section 1, Performance-Based.com shall provide You with notice and the opportunity to cure (in accordance with Section 6.2 below), except that no opportunity to cure shall be provided if You are in breach of Section 1(b) . Any suspected fraudulent, abusive or otherwise illegal content or activity by You on Your Web site or in Your subscription emails, or that is perpetrated through use of the Network Service, is grounds for immediate termination of this Agreement or deactivation of "Your Account" (a memo account kept by Performance-Based.com on Your behalf), without prior notice by Performance-Based.com and may include referral to the appropriate law enforcement agencies (as Performance-Based.com deems appropriate). Performance-Based.com may not review all content on Your Web site or in Your subscription emails. You shall remain solely responsible for Your Web site and subscription email content. Performance-Based.com is, under no circumstances, responsible for the practices of any Advertiser or Publisher or such Advertiser or Publisher's Web site(s) and/or the content that an Advertiser makes available through the Network Service and/or the content of Publishers' subscription emails. 2.1 Linking to Advertisers. During the Term You may apply to Advertiser Programs for the opportunity to earn Payouts through running one or more Advertiser "Campaigns" (pay-per-Transaction promotions). Upon approval by the Advertiser for acceptance into its Program, You may post (and remove) Links from Your Web site or subscription emails to Advertiser's Web site or Web site content. If such Links are not dynamically updated through the Network Service, You are obligated to update Links to an Advertiser's Web site or Web site content when notified to do so in order to earn Payouts. 2.2 Use of Links to Advertisers. You may not place Links to a Advertiser's Web site or Web site content in unsolicited email and other types of spam. You must place Links to the Advertiser's Web site or Web site content such that it is unlikely that the Links will mislead the Visitor, and such that it is reasonably likely that the Links will deliver bona fide Transactions by the Visitor to Advertiser from the Link. None of Your promotional activities may infringe an Advertiser's intellectual property rights (including but not limited to trademark rights), intellectual property rights of a competitor of a Advertiser, or Performance-Based.com's intellectual property rights. You shall not cause any Transactions to be made that are not in good faith. You shall be responsible for ensuring that each Sub-Publisher you recruit meets Performance-Based.com's eligibility requirements (as established from time to time), is bound by and complies with Publisher duties (and where stated Sub-Publisher duties) as specified in this Agreement, and for payment of Payouts due to Sub-Publisher that shall accrue in Your Account. You shall indemnify Performance-Based.com for all acts of Your Sub-Publishers without limitation. The details of a Advertiser's Program and any Campaigns shall be available through the Network Service. An Advertiser may prohibit You from receiving compensation for a Payout attributable to Transactions made directly by You or on Your behalf by Your agent by Linking to Advertiser from Your Web site or in Your subscription email. A Advertiser may permit You to serve the Advertiser's ad content and/or modify the Advertiser's Links (including but not limited to the images contained therein). For "Lead" Campaigns, the Advertiser is compensating an Publisher when a Visitor has completed an action that is defined by the Advertiser, such as completing a form or other mechanism to identify potential customers. The Advertiser shall publish on the Network Service Lead Campaign parameters, including details regarding any disqualifying Leads or Lead form content (such as multiple Lead submissions), and the components included within an individual sale Transaction that result in a Payout. Notwithstanding the preceding, no details of an Advertiser's Program may conflict with terms and conditions contained in this Agreement. Performance-Based.com shall not be obligated to enforce or honor any such conflicting terms and conditions. Breach of this Section 2.2 is cause for immediate termination from an Advertiser's Program or Campaign and/or termination of this Agreement. 2.3 Termination from Advertiser's Program/Campaign. After You have been approved by an Advertiser, the Advertiser may terminate You, one of Your Web sites or subscription email lists, and/or Sub-Publisher(s) from the Advertiser's Program or a Campaign for any of the following material breaches ("Publisher Termination for Material Breach"): (a) operation of an illegal business through such Web site and/or subscription email list; (b) engaging in any illegal activity of any type, including but not limited to displaying illegal content on Your Web Site and/or in Your subscription emails or offering any illegal good or service through Your Web Site and/or subscription emails; (c) operation of a Web site or email Link to Web sites that contain or promote, any of the following content: illegal, cracking, hacking or warez, or Link to a Web site(s) that does so; (d) engaging in indiscriminate or unsolicited commercial advertising emails; (e) causing or enabling any Transactions to be made that are not in good faith; (g) breach of the licensing provisions of this Agreement; (i) breach of any other intellectual property right provision of this Agreement or other of common law intellectual property rights of Advertiser; and/or (j) diluting, blurring or tarnishing the value of Advertiser's trademarks, tradenames, and/or service marks. Performance-Based.com may terminate You/Your Sub-Publisher from an Advertiser's Program or Campaign in Performance-Based.com's sole discretion. 3.1 Applicable Codes and Code Maintenance. In order for Performance-Based.com to record the tracking of Visitors' Transactions resulting from clicks on Advertiser Links on Your Web sites and/or subscription emailings, two types of Performance-Based.com code must be included in and maintained within the Advertiser's Links: "Impression Tracking Code" and "Transaction Tracking Code" (collectively referred to as "Tracking Code"), and all Advertiser Links and all advertisements ("Ad Content") must be in a Network Service compatible format. You, the Advertiser or the Advertiser's agent may serve standard Ad Content. If the Advertiser has any non-standard Ad Content or Link format, these must be served by the Advertiser, You or a Performance-Based.com authorized provider (contact Performance-Based.com client services for verification and authority). Performance-Based.com shall determine (where possible) actual Payouts that should be credited to Your Account, and alternatively apply an estimated amount of Payouts, if the Advertiser or its agent serves Advertiser's Ad Content and such Links are not functioning properly, or if Links to an Advertiser's Web site through the Network Service are not functioning properly due to the Advertiser's negligent or intentional act or omission. Performance-Based.com may temporarily deactivate Your Account or terminate Your Account if You or Your agent is responsible for the improper functioning of Ad Content that You serve, or if You otherwise interfere with and/or fail to maintain the Impression Tracking Code and Transaction Tracking Code. 3.2 Network Service. Subject to Section 3.1, Performance-Based.com shall provide You with access to tracking and reporting tools, and to support services. From time to time Performance-Based.com may offer optional services for a fee. Fees for such optional services are at Performance-Based.com's then-current published rates or as may be quoted by Performance-Based.com, and are payable in advance or may be off-set against Your positive Account balance (at Performance-Based.com's discretion). Tracking details regarding Visitor Transactions for all Advertisers is not available on a real-time basis and there may be reporting delays regarding Transactions for some Advertisers. Performance-Based.com may make available, for fees that Performance-Based.com shall publish from time-to-time, enhanced reporting capabilities and other services that are not included in the standard Network Service. On-line support service is available through "Help" within the members' area. Phone support is provided during the operating hours of 8am-5pm, excepting national and Performance-Based.com recognized holidays (local time and local holidays are applicable at all of Performance-Based.com's business offices). Your use of "Help" enables Performance-Based.com to respond more quickly to Your query. 3.3 Advertiser's Payout Rate. The Advertiser shall establish through the Network Service a Payout rate for a qualifying Transaction for each of the Advertiser's Campaigns. Your Account will be credited with each Payout in accordance with the Advertiser's Campaign Payout rate for the relevant Campaign for each such Visitor action resulting directly from Links from each of Your or Your Sub-Publisher's Web sites or subscription emails to each Advertiser's Web site or Web site content. Advertisers may discontinue Campaigns or Programs, or decrease any Payout rate upon 7 days written notice with effect from the 8th day from such notice. Performance-Based.com will send You a notice through the Network Service messaging system regarding each change in Payout rate(s) or Campaign or Program discontinuation. If You have a custom Payout rate or other arrangements it is the Advertiser's responsibility for notifying You through the Network Service messaging system of a change in Payout rate or discontinuation of a Campaign or Program. 3.4 Payment. If on the 20th day of the month for Publishers located in the US or Canada and on the last day of the month for Publishers located elsewhere Your Account exceeds Performance-Based.com's "Minimum Balance Amount", as set by Performance-Based.com from time to time (currently US$10 for Publishers located in US or Canada, and up to US$25 for Publishers located elsewhere), for Transactions reported for the previous month, Performance-Based.com will issue to You any positive balance in Your Account. Performance-Based.com shall have no obligation to make payment of any Payouts for which Performance-Based.com has not received payment from the relevant Advertiser. If Performance-Based.com elects, in its own discretion, not to make payment to You for amounts not received from an Advertiser, those amounts shall not be included in the Minimum Balance Amount. Your recourse for any earned Payouts not received by Performance-Based.com and not paid to You shall be to make a claim against the relevant Advertiser(s) and Performance-Based.com disclaims any and all liability for such payment. Your Account balance shall appear in US Dollars although a courtesy calculation of foreign currency conversion is enabled through the Network Service. Foreign currency conversion shall be provided as a convenience and is an estimate only. Payment in Your local currency may be available (consult the information that is available through Your Account). The conversion rate shall be determined in accordance with Performance-Based.com's and Performance-Based.com's vendor's operating standards using the rates prevailing upon the date that payment is made to You, or upon the basis of historical conversion rates if rates are unavailable at such time. Any questions (including disputes) regarding Payouts and/or payment should be directed to Performance-Based.com client services. 3.5 Charge-backs. An Advertiser may request that Performance-Based.com, or Performance-Based.com may on its own initiative, debit Your Account with an amount equal to a Payout previously credited to Your Account in circumstances of : product returns; duplicate entry or other clear error; non-bona fide Transaction where there is no Publisher failure to comply with the this Agreement; non-receipt of payment from, or refund of payment to, the Visitor by the Advertiser; or Publisher failure to comply with the terms of an Offer or Advertiser Click-through Agreement ("Charge-back"). Charge-backs requested by an Advertiser in accordance with the preceding sentence may be applied up to and including the 60th day after the end of the month in which the Payout was earned ("Charge-back Period"). Performance-Based.com may apply at any time Charge-backs for all Transactions from Publisher's Web site(s) and/or subscription emails for Publisher's or its Sub-Publisher's failure to comply with this Agreement. An Advertiser may request that a Payout be postponed 1 payment cycle where Advertiser is verifying a Lead (for Lead Campaigns) or the Advertiser has a product return policy or offer to the Visitor that allows the Visitor to return the product during the Charge-back Period. 4.1 Proprietary Rights and Licenses. For each Advertiser whose Program You have been accepted to, Performance-Based.com grants to You a revocable, non-transferable, royalty free, international sublicense to display and Link to the Advertiser's Web site or Web site content, and all trademarks, service marks, tradenames, and/or copyrighted material ("Content"), from each of Your Web Sites and/or subscription email for the limited purposes of Promoting the Advertiser's Program and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
