Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Affiliate is granted a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and download such promotional material and other designated promotional materials for placement on the Affiliate Site for the sole and exclusive purpose of promoting websites owned, operated or controlled by the Company. In utilizing the promotional material, the Affiliate agrees to cooperate fully with the Company in order to establish and maintain approved promotional material.

  • Using the Company advertising materials, trademark or name in a way that is deteriorating for the Company's image.
  • Using iframes or any other techniques or technology that places your affiliate tracking cookie by any means other than an actual click-through.
