  1. First, for clarity’s sake, here are definitions of some terms that we will use in the agreement.
    1. “Advertising Material” means the banners and product information in the Affiliates’ resource area of World Niche websites, to be used for promotional activities.
    2. “Affiliate” means an independent, non-employee of World Niche who has been granted the rights described below for promoting the Products of World Niche in exchange for a Commission, subject to all the terms and conditions of the Agreement. On occasion, the term “you” may be employed.
    3. “Affiliate Website” means the site operate by the Affiliate, as distinct from this website or any other website operated by World Niche itself.

    13. “World Niche” is the name of an affiliate marketing program owned and operated by a corporation named Marabou Limited (which we will abbreviate here as “Marabou”).
    14. “World Niche Website” means a website (including this one) owned and operated by Marabou, as opposed to Affiliate Websites that are owned and operated by Affiliates as independent legal entities.
  2. SPAMMING IS PROHIBITED!
    1. World Niche defines spamming with a broader scope than other affiliate programs with lower marketing standards and principles. The World Niche definition of spam includes not only e-mail spamming, but most other forms of unsolicited advertising as well. Our ban on unsolicited advertising includes any quantity of recipients. Whether it is 1, or 1 million, it is prohibited.
    2. The following forms of unsolicited advertising are considered spam and strictly prohibited by World Niche:
      1. Unsolicited commercial e-mail of any kind is strictly prohibited, even if it complies with the U.S.CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 (“Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act”) and the anti-spam laws of all other jurisdictions;
      2. Unsolicited instant messages;
      3. Electronic newsletters of any kind;
        1. This ban includes double opt-in newsletters, unless you receive prior written authorization from World Niche;
      4. Unsolicited postings on public forums such as newsgroups, message boards, chat rooms, instant chat programs, guest books, web pages, or any other public forum.
        1. The only exceptions to this policy are:
          1. Posting in public forums of which you are the 100% owner.
          2. Posting in public forums where the owner has given you written permission.
          3. Posting in public forums in the “business opportunities” forum, if applicable.
    3. World Niche does NOT pay on hits from spamming.
      1. If World Niche confirms you have promoted any of its products via any of the unsolicited advertising methods noted above, we will immediately invalidate all current sales and terminate your account without notice. Let us say it again for effect: IF YOU ARE CAUGHT PROMOTING OUR SITES WITH ANY FORM OF SPAM AS DEFINED ABOVE, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE TERMINATED, ALL AMOUNTS OWING WILL BE FORFEITED, and WE WILL PURSUE LEGAL ACTION. World Niche has a zero tolerance approach towards violators of this policy.
        1. This policy will be fully enforced regardless of the “status” of the affiliate. This policy will be applied equally to all, and compliance is mandatory for all affiliates - no excuses by violators will be accepted - no affiliate is considered too “new” to the program to understand this policy, and no affiliate is considered too “important” to respect this policy.
    4. Why is World Niche so strict with its anti-spam measures and enforcement of its anti-spam policy?
      1. The reasons are simple. First of all, it is illegal. Secondly, we want you to be successful and make more money in the World Niche program. Spamming equates to a poor gamble on minor short term gains at the expense of assured long term success.
        1. Programs that condone spamming end up being blacklisted and relegated to bottom feeding with slow and unreliable web hosting options - low on speed and high on downtime.
        2. We are able to secure top level, fast, reliable web hosting to serve our web pages and order pages to your productive, targeted audience because we have not sacrificed these privileges by hammering an unproductive and poor target audience with unsolicited marketing.
        3. Programs that condone spamming end up with product URLs, domains, and websites being content-filtered by block lists and anti-spam software, which means that critical e-mail such as Commission notifications, Affiliate newsletters, and order confirmations will not get through.
        4. If a website is deemed to be generating spam, third-party testing services, such as McAfee Site Advisor, can render a negative review of the website.
          1. This can result in the denial of paid search term advertising.
    5. If you have any questions about whether or not your marketing methods are banned by this policy, contact us BEFORE you start your campaign.
    6. Therefore, this policy is in the best interests of all Affiliates, is a commitment to your long term success, and ensures the World Niche program will remain a leader in the industry.
  3. Personal Information
    1. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that the personal details that you provide on the application are true and accurate, and that you will inform us if they change. You hereby also warrant that you are who you say you are in your application.
    2. In some places, there is a minimum age requirement for dealing in products of an adult nature, and for making any binding contract at all. It is your sole responsibility to determine whether the place from which you operate your website or the place of your residence has a minimum age requirement for both of these matters. It is, naturally, your sole responsibility to comply with any such requirements. By agreeing to this contract, you warrant that you are old enough.
    3. You warrant that you also possess all other rights, permissions, and competencies to run a website that deals in products of an adult nature.
    4. You hereby consent that we may use the information that you provide in your application in order for us to carry out any checks that we consider necessary to confirm your identity and suitability for the program, or for any other purpose which World Niche in its sole discretion deems necessary.
    5. On submission of an application to become an Affiliate, the applicant shall be deemed to have accepted and to be bound by the terms of this contractual Agreement.
  4. The Permission We Allow You
    1. Upon accepting your application to become an Affiliate, World Niche grants you permission market the World Niche Products, as offered on a World Niche Website, pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, on a strictly independent contractor basis.
    2. The permission to market includes a non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty free, revocable license to use World Niche Intellectual Property in conjunction with Advertising Material, for the sole purpose of Promotional Activities.
  5. World Niche Rights
    1. All data supplied via the Link either to or from the Affiliate and/or the Affiliate Website and all Intellectual Property Rights in the same, and any and all goodwill generated by the Affiliate’s activities shall accrue to and belong to World Niche exclusively.
      1. World Niche is entitled to monitor the Affiliate Website to make sure that the Link to the World Niche Website and/or the Affiliate Website and/or the Affiliate’s participation in the World Niche Affiliate program is/are appropriate.
        1. If, in the sole discretion of World Niche, World Niche considers the Link and/or the Affiliate Website or the Affiliate’s participation in the program inappropriate, World Niche may either:
          1. notify the Affiliate of the changes it requires the Affiliate to make, or
          2. terminate this Agreement without notice to the Affiliate and without penalty for World Niche and Marabou.
    2. All Intellectual Property used in accordance with this Agreement by either or both parties shall remain the exclusive property of the respective originating or issuing party.
      1. No transfer of intellectual property ownership or conveyance of rights is intended or conferred in this Agreement.
    3. Interests in this Agreement may not be transferred or sold to any other entity, and all business between the parties is subject to the terms of this Agreement.
    4. Both parties will be held to confidence in any matters of business with regard to this Agreement.
    5. World Niche will own all right, title and interest in and to all information that is created or collected in the operation of the World Niche Websites.
  6. Affiliate Obligations
    1. General
      1. The Affiliate shall conduct him/herself with honesty and integrity.
      2. The Affiliate shall comply with every applicable law, ordinance, rule, case law precedent, administrative ruling and/or regulation of every applicable country, federation of countries (such as the European Union), state, province, county, municipality and/or other jurisdiction in which the Affiliate attempts to conduct his/her affiliate affairs.
        1. For greater certainty, this obligation applies to the rules, regulations, case law precedents, and administrative rulings of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, and all other consumer protection bodies in and outside the United States.
    2. Links
      1. The Links shall be displayed throughout your Affiliate Website.
      2. The Link that World Niche will provide for the Affiliate from the World Niche Website identifies the linked site as the Affiliate Website, and therefore:
        1. It is the Affiliate’s sole responsibility to ensure that this unique link is used and maintained, for otherwise the Commission may not be tracked, recorded and/or paid, and
        2. World Niche is not liable for any Commission lost, unearned, or unpaid resulting from the failure to use or maintain the unique Link.
    3. WorldNiche’s policy is not to use pornographic images on a World Niche Website; if the Affiliate decides to use pornographic materials on the Affiliate Website, that Affiliate alone is responsible for compliance with all applicable statutes and regulations, including Title 18, Part 1, Chapter 110, Section 2257 of the U.S. Code, inter alia with respect to the duty to maintain certain records regarding persons appearing in the pornographic materials.
      1. The Affiliate shall also solely be responsible for ensuring that he/she does not infringe the intellectual property rights of the owners of such materials, just as the Affiliate is solely responsible for ensuring that he/she does not infringe the intellectual property rights of the owners of any materials used on the Affiliate Websites.
    4. You may not make any representations, descriptions, or claims about the Products, including claims about Product efficacy, that are not contained on a World Niche Website.
      1. World Niche might change Product claims from time to time.
        1. It is your duty to review World Niche Websites regularly and bring your claims into conformity.
        2. Failure by World Niche to send you actual notice of a change in Product claims does not relieve you of the responsibility to stay current with World Niche’s Product claims and make sure that your Affiliate Websites stay conformed.
          1. An example of a forbidden Product claim would be that a male enhancement supplement can provide permanent enlargement of a flaccid penis (as opposed to temporary enhancement of an erect penis).
    5. The Affiliate must update the content of the Affiliate Website as and when the Advertising Material on the World Niche websites is updated, in order to maintain consistency between the Affiliate Website and the World Niche Websites.
      1. All maintenance and updating of the Affiliate Website is the sole responsibility of the Affiliate.
      2. Your assent to the Agreement includes your assent to a continuing obligation by you to review the World Niche websites from time to time in order to maintain consistency between your Affiliate Websites and the World Niche Websites.
    6. The Affiliate shall not frame any pages or parts of any pages of the World Niche Website or any other website nor will the Affiliate create the impression that the Affiliate Website is a World Niche Website, part of a World Niche Website, or part of any website that is not the Affiliate’s own Affiliate Website.

      3. infringes third party intellectual property rights;
      4. violates any law or which is otherwise reasonably objectionable;
      5. contains information or claims about the Products other than information about the Products supplied on the World Niche Websites;
      6. contains any material that would mislead or cause confusion about the Products or the relationship between the Affiliate and World Niche;
      7. is a "flog" (a.k.a. "fake blog" or a "flack blog"), defined as a promotional blog posing as a non-promotional, unbiased source of information; or
      8. appears to be unbiased journalism when in fact it is part of a marketing campaign.
    8. The Affiliate shall not authorize any third party to use the World Niche Intellectual Property, or any text, graphics, or photos that bear a likeness to World Niche Intellectual Property;
    9. The Affiliate shall not engage in or facilitate any Promotional Activities that use any technology that has any virus including, but not limited to, any Trojan horse, worm, logic bomb, time bomb, back door, trap door, keys or other harmful elements.
    10. The Affiliate shall not use consumers’ personal data for activities that fail to comply with personal data protection legislation or regulations in any relevant jurisdiction.
    11. The Affiliate shall not create, or attempt to create, a Transaction by any means other than that permitted in this Agreement.
      1. All Transactions shall be made by World Niche and subject to World Niche’s terms of sale.

    17. You may not refer yourself or your company under your own existing affiliate account(s).
    18. You shall not, directly or indirectly, attempt to recruit, solicit, or induce other affiliates to terminate their affiliate relationship with World Niche.
    19. Traffic theft and any use or distribution of software that overrides or steals tracking cookies to generate sales for him/herself is strictly prohibited.

    1. World Niche shall pay an Affiliate his/her Commission at the level specified for such Affiliate in his/her Affiliate account interface.
    2. World Niche reserves the right to vary Commissions at any time.
    3. No Commission shall be payable to the Affiliate for any customers or transactions secured otherwise than in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and/or for any customers or transactions which are not genuine or which involve use of fraudulent means.
      1.

      2. Under such circumstances, World Niche may also cancel this Agreement without notice and without penalty to itself, and may take any appropriate legal measures against the Affiliate for, inter alia, fraud and breach by the Affiliate.
    4. No Commission shall be payable to the Affiliate for any customers or transactions that occur by visits made to the World Niche Website by a link which is not the Link and/or by visits made to the World Niche Website otherwise than via the Link even if those customers have followed the Link previously.
