Codeage LLC Affiliate Program Terms and Conditions
This Publisher Agreement (this "Agreement") is made between You ("You" or “Your”) and Codeage LLC ("We" or "Us" or “Our”).
Both parties desire to establish the general terms and conditions which shall govern advertising and commission arrangements between You and Us.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
In consideration of the promises set forth below, each party agrees as follows:
1. Offers and Engagements.
1. From time to time, We may post on the Refersion Marketplace offers (each, an "Offer") to pay to other participants a specified commission in return for certain advertising services leading to a Qualifying Link (defined below).
1.2. If You accept one of Our Offers, We will have entered into an "Engagement." Each Engagement shall have the same identification number as the original Offer that led to the Engagement and shall be governed by the terms and conditions of this Agreement. However, in the event of any inconsistency between the terms of the specific Engagement and the terms of this Agreement, the terms of the Engagement shall govern.
1.3. At any time prior to You displaying a Qualifying Link on one of Your websites, We may, with or without notice (a) change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of an Offer or an Engagement or (b) remove, alter, or modify any graphic or banner ad that We have submitted for an Offer or an Engagement. You agree to promptly implement any request from Us to remove, alter or modify any such graphic or banner ad.
1.4. Medical or Disease Claims.
1.4.1. Do not make medical or disease claims OR any unsubstantiated health claims in association with Our related brand properties, including but not limited to Codeage LLC products unless otherwise approved by Us. The only health claims that may be made or used by You are those We provide regarding individual products.
1.4.2. No disease claims are permitted concerning Our products, per FDA/FTC standards. Because the products and/or programs We provide are not medications, but dietary supplements, no disease claims, either explicit (referring directly to a disease) or implied (referring to potential disease symptoms) may be made in conjunction with any products and/or programs provided by Us. Per FDA/FTC guidelines, this also means that no disease claims should appear in a single article in which Our products and/or programs are discussed, even if the disease claim doesn’t refer specifically to a product and/or program provided by Us. For more information on what constitutes a disease claim, read the FDA’s Guidance for Industry: Structure/Function Claims HERE.(https://www.fda.gov/Food/GuidanceRegulation/GuidanceDocumentsRegulatoryInfo rmation/DietarySupplements/ucm103340.htm)
1.4.3. At Our sole discretion, We have the right to remove, or request removal of any and all posts that make unsubstantiated health claims and/or any disease claims that may put Our company at risk.
1.5. Reciprocal Promotion. You are neither guaranteed nor entitled to any reciprocal promotion by Us for any of Your products, services or brands.
1.6. Bonuses. If You are going to offer a bonus for someone to purchase one of Our products, You must deliver what You promised and do so in a timely manner. You may not discount or rebate against the retail price of Our products. You also take responsibility for all customer service issues related to bonus offers and indemnify Us from any liability relating to Your bonus/es.
1.7. Affiliate Disclosures. To comply with current FDA and FTC guidelines governing supplements and truth-in-advertising, please be aware of and adhere to the following guidelines, if and when You choose to review any of Our products and/or programs or recommend Our products on Your site:
1.7.1. Be honest with Your readers about Your experiences, and know that We, in no way, want to influence Your writing to reflect anything but Your actual experience.
1.7.2. Use disclosures. The FTC has specific requirements about disclosures to meet truth-in-advertising standards. The FTC’s Endorsement Guides: What People Are Asking can be found HERE.( https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/ftcs-endorsement-guideswhat-people-are-aski...)
Here are some basics of how this applies to You:
a. Affiliate Disclosure Statement. If You use affiliate links to Our (or any other) products in an article or on Your site, the FTC requires You include a clear affiliate disclosure, such as: “This page contains affiliate links, meaning I may receive a small commission from any purchases You make from clicking on a link on this page.” For full transparency, We suggest You also provide a link identifying what brands You are affiliated with.
b. Disclosure Locations: According to the FTC, Your endorsement and/or affiliate disclosures should appear clearly near the top of the page and near the information about the product and/or program You are reviewing or selling. Footer text, vague links to other pages, or unclear wording aren’t enough. For results, dosage, and/or time frame disclosures, the disclosure should be found very close to the related information. Guidelines may be found at the FTC website article link located above.
2. Your Responsibilities.
