3. IvyBloom.co.uk 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 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.

7. Commission %
The standard commission rate is currently 15%. However, we have the right to change this depending on the circumstances. Each account can have a different commission rate. The commission is not product based. That means you will get commission on any product purchase if it comes from a link on your website. The cookie time is 30 days.
8. Promotion Restrictions
8.1. You are free to promote your own web sites, but naturally any promotion that mentions IvyBloom.co.uk could be perceived by the public or the press as a joint effort. You should know that certain forms of advertising are always prohibited by IvyBloom.co.uk. 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 IvyBloom.co.uk 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 IvyBloom.co.uk so long as the news group specifically welcomes commercial messages. At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your web sites as independent from IvyBloom.co.uk. 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 IvyBloom.co.uk Affiliate Program. Any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.
