The purpose of this Agreement is to allow HTML linking to ChangeMint.com from your website or other communication mediums (such as email).

YOUR OBLIGATIONS

To begin your enrollment process, you will complete and submit the online application here. The fact that we auto-approve applications does not imply that we may not re-evaluate your application at a later time. We may reject your application at our sole discretion. We may cancel your application if we determine that your website or communications are unsuitable for our Champions Program, including if they:

  • Promote sexually explicit materials.
  • Promote violence.
  • Promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age.
  • Promote illegal activities.
  • Incorporate any materials which infringe or assist others to infringe on any copyright, trademark or other intellectual property rights or to violate the law.
  • Include "ChangeMint" or variations or misspellings thereof in its domain name or business name.
  • Are otherwise in any way unlawful, harmful, threatening, defamatory, obscene, harassing, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable to us in our sole discretion.
  • Contain software downloads that potentially enable diversions of commission from other affiliates in our program.

You may not create or design your website or any other website that you operate, explicitly or implied in a manner which resembles our website nor design your website in a manner which leads customers to believe you are ChangeMint.com or any other affiliated business.

As a Participant in the Program, you will have access to your own Program Dashboard. Here you will be able to review relevant Program content, access banners and other creative materials, as well as your own personal tracking link (your “Link”). In order for us to accurately keep track of all guest visits from your site to ours, you must use your personal tracking Link on your website and on every communication. If your personal tracking Link is not used, we have no way to credit sales to you!

ChangeMint reserves the right, at any time, to review your placement and approve the use of your Link and require that you change the placement or use to comply with the guidelines provided to you.

The maintenance and the updating of your website will be your responsibility. We may monitor your website and communications as we feel necessary to make sure that it is up-to-date and to notify you of any changes that we feel should enhance your performance.

It is entirely your responsibility to follow all applicable intellectual property and other laws that pertain to your website. You must have express permission to use any person's copyrighted material, whether it be a writing, an image, or any other copyrightable work. We will not be responsible (and you will be solely responsible) if you use another person's copyrighted material or other intellectual property in violation of the law or any third party rights.

OUR OBLIGATIONS

We have the right to monitor your website at any time to determine if you are following the terms and conditions of this Agreement. We may notify you of any changes to your site that we feel should be made, or to make sure that your links to our website are appropriate and to notify further you of any changes that we feel should be made. If you do not make the changes to your site that we feel are necessary, we reserve the right to terminate your participation in the Program. This Agreement will begin upon our acceptance of your Affiliate application, and will continue unless terminated hereunder.

TERMINATION

Either you or we may end this Agreement AT ANY TIME, with or without cause, by giving the other party written notice. Written notice can be in the form of mail, email or fax. ChangeMint reserves the right to terminate this Agreement and your participation in the Program immediately and without notice to you for any breach of this Agreement, including fraud in your use of the Program or should you abuse this Program in any way. If such fraud or abuse is detected, ChangeMint shall not be liable to you for any commissions for such fraudulent sales.

MODIFICATION

We may modify any of the terms and conditions in this Agreement at any time at our sole discretion. In such event, you will be notified by email. Modifications may include, but are not limited to, changes in the payment procedures and Program rules. If any modification is unacceptable to you, your only option is to end this Agreement. Your continued participation in the Program following the posting of the change notice or new Agreement on our site will indicate your agreement to the changes.

PAYMENT

You shall receive a 10% commission on all sales (exclusive of shipping charges and taxes) generated via your personal link if the sales transaction is completed within 90-days of the buyer accessing ChangeMint.com via the link. In other words, if a buyer accesses ChangeMint.com via your personal link and makes a purchase within 90-days, you get paid. ChangeMint uses a third party, ShoutOut, to handle all of the tracking and payment. Kindly review the network’s payment terms and conditions on your Program Dashboard.

PROGRAM ACCOUNT ACCESS

You will create a password so that you may access your Program Dashboard (your Account interface). From there you will be able to receive your reports that will describe our calculation of the commissions due to you. Yay!

PROMOTION RESTRICTIONS

We want you to succeed, and are here to help in anyway we can! However, you should know that certain forms of advertising or promotion are always prohibited by ChangeMint. For example, advertising commonly referred to as "spamming" is unacceptable to us and could cause damage to our name. 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. 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 ChangeMint 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 ChangeMint so long as the news group specifically welcomes commercial messages. At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your websites as independent from ChangeMint. If it comes to our attention that you are spamming, we will consider that cause for immediate termination of this Agreement and your participation in the Program. Any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.

Please do not violate our trademarks. Trademark violators, and will be banned from the Program. We will do everything possible to contact the affiliate prior to the ban and collectively fix the problem. However, we reserve the right to expel any trademark violator from the Program without prior notice, and on the first occurrence of such infringement.

You 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 ChangeMint’s products and services).

You 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 our website (i.e., no page from our website or any ChangeMint 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 Program and non-Program 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 our website in IFrames, hidden links and automatic pop ups that open our website; (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 Program banners with any other banners, other than those that are on web sites 100% owned by the owner of the application.
