Halo Board Affiliate Program Agreement
In order to be accepted by Halo Board to their Affiliate Program, it is important that affiliates both understand and agree to the terms and conditions we have provided herein.
Should you find the need to inquire on a certain point further prior to your application, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Program Manager, Kian at [email protected].
This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to you becoming an affiliate in the Halo Board Affiliate Program. The purpose of this Agreement is to allow HTML linking between your web site and the haloboard.com web site. Please note that throughout this Agreement, "we," "us," and "our" refer to Halo Board, and "you," "your," and "yours" refer to the affiliate.
2.1. To start getting you on board our affiliate program, you must complete and submit the online application at the refersion.com server. We reserve the right to reject your application at our sole discretion. We reserve the right to cancel your application if it is determined that your site is not suitable for our program, for reasons including but not limited to:
2.1.1. Promotes violence of sexually explicit content.
2.1.2. Promotes discrimination based on sex, race, religion, nationality, disability, age, or sexual orientation
2.1.3. Promotes any illegal activity
2.1.4. Is otherwise in any way unlawful, harmful, threatening, defamatory, obscene, harassing, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable to us in our sole discretion
2.1.5. Contains software downloads that potentially enable diversions of commission from other affiliates in our program
2.1.6. Includes content which infringes or assists others to infringe on any copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property rights or to violate the law
2.1.7. Includes “Halo Board” or variations or misspellings thereof in its domain name.
2.2. Affiliates should not be involved or charged with fraud or dishonesty.
2.3. 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 Halo Board or any other affiliated business.
2.4. Affiliates must consent that no fees or payments will be made to any customers who are referred to Halo Board.
2.5. As a member of the Halo Board Affiliate Program, you will have access to Affiliate Account. Here you will be able to review our Program’s details, download the HTML code (that provides for links to web pages within the haloboard.com web site), various creatives and browse and get tracking codes for specific deals. In order for us to accurately keep track of all guest visits from your site to ours, you must use the HTML code that we provide for each banner, text link, or other affiliate link we provide you with.
2.6. Haloboard reserves the right, at any time, to review your placement and approve the use of Your Links and require that you change the placement or use to comply with the guidelines provided to you.
2.7. The maintenance and updating of your site will be your responsibility. We may monitor your site as we feel necessary to make sure that it is up-to-date and notify you of any change that we feel should enhance your performance.
2.8. It is entirely your responsibility to follow all applicable intellectual property and other laws that pertain to your site. 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.
2.9. We strongly advise affiliates to stay compliant with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) guidelines on testimonials and endorsements. All endorsements, reviews, testimonials on Halo Board products and services, as well as relationships
between other types of content websites (forums, blogs, microblogs, and other Social Media channels) and Halo Board must be clearly disclosed in a separate policy on the affiliate sites. FTC points out that “when there exists a connection between the endorser and the seller of the advertised product” it is imperative that such connection is “fully disclosed”. FTC deems the
relationship in an endorser-sponsor light and believes that the end user has the right to understand that one exists. We share the undergirding idea of this approach and strongly encourage our affiliates to adhere to the FTC’s rules. We also reserve the right to terminate the relationship with any non-compliant affiliates.
2.10. If you decide to leave the affiliate program, you must remove the advertising graphics from your website.
2.11. Affiliates must have permission from Halo Board to use branded URLs.
Halo Board Rights and Obligations
3.1. We have the right to monitor your site at any time to determine if you are following the terms and conditions of this Agreement. We may notify you of any change to your site that we feel should be made, or to make sure that your links to our web site are appropriate. 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 Halo Board Affiliate Program.
3.2. Halo Board reserves the right to terminate this Agreement and your participation in the Halo Board Affiliate Program immediately and without notice to you should you commit fraud in your use of the Halo Board Affiliate Program or should you abuse this program in any way. If such fraud or abuse is detected, Halo Board shall not be liable on paying you out any commission for such fraudulent sales.
3.3. Commissions can be changed at any time and the rate of commission is up to the discretion of Halo Board. Any affiliates who
are found to be fraudulent or gained commissions fraudulently could be subject to legal action and be removed from the program.
3.4. We will actively screen affiliates who send poor-quality traffic to us. We reserve the right to remove these affiliates.
3.5. This Agreement will begin upon our acceptance of your Affiliate application and will continue unless terminated hereunder.
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. In addition, this Agreement will terminate immediately upon any breach of this Agreement by you.
Halo Board reserves the right to amend, modify or change any of the terms and conditions at any time and without prior notice by posting the amended terms on this Website. The amended terms shall automatically be effective upon posting on our Website and by any continued access of our Website and/or making use of the services provided, you shall be deemed to have accepted these revised terms. You should therefore review these Terms and Conditions from time to time so that you will be aware of such amendments, modifications or change.
4.1. Halo Board uses a third party affiliate network, Refersion.com, to handle all of the tracking and payment. Kindly review the network’s payment terms and conditions.
4.2. Affiliates will be attributed with a conversion based on a last-click attribution model. This meaning that the affiliate website must be the last traffic source for the conversion. In the event that another website was the last source, the affiliate will not be rewarded for the conversion.
5.1. You are free to promote your own web sites but naturally, any promotion that mentions “Halo Board” could be perceived by the
public or the press as a joint effort. You should know that certain forms of advertising are prohibited by Halo Board. 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 Halo Board 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. Also, you may post to newsgroups to promote Halo Board so long as the newsgroup specifically welcomes commercial messages. At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your web sites as independent from Halo Board. 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 Halo Board Affiliate Program. Any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.
5.2. Keyword "HALO" “HALO BOARD” must be set as a broad negative keyword across all PPC campaigns in search engines or in sponsored listings. Affiliates are strictly prohibited from bidding in their Pay-Per-Click campaigns on such branded keywords as Halo, Halo Board, haloboard.com, www.halo, www.haloboard.com, as well as any misspellings or variations of these - be it in "TM" or "TM+" manner. Affiliates are not allowed to use the term 'official' in any search content on their website. Failure to comply will result in immediate expulsion from our Affiliate Program, and forfeiture of all commissions. While we will do everything possible to contact the violating affiliate prior to banning them from our affiliate program, we reserve the right to expel any Trademark violator from our affiliate program without prior notice, and even on the first occurrence of such PPC bidding behavior.
5.3. Direct Linking is strictly prohibited. The use of a merchant's display URL on any PPC engine is strictly prohibited.
5.4. The use of 3rd party tracking pixels on our site is not allowed which also falls as one of the emerging requirements on Data Privacy Compliance.
5.5. Affiliates are strictly prohibited from promoting Halo Board through coupon sites. We reserve the right to expel any violator of this clause from our affiliate program without prior notice, even on the first occurrence of such promotional behavior.
5.6. Affiliates shall not earn commission for any personal sales whether through friends, neighbors, or family.
5.7. Affiliate shall not transmit any so-called “interstitials”, “ Parasiteware™”, “Parasitic Marketing”, “Shopping Assistance Application”, “Toolbar Installations and/or Add-ons”, “Browser Extensions”, “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 haloboard.com website (i.e. no page from our site or any Halo Board content or branding is visible on the end-user’s screen.
