In using the Links, you agree that you will cooperate fully with us in order to establish and maintain the Links. Further, you agree that you will use the Links strictly in accordance with any specific instructions which we may provide you with from time to time. If during the term of this Agreement you wish to place the Links on Web sites other than those Web sites which you have previously reported to Elite Answers and which Elite Answers have approved ("Alternative Sites"), you shall be obligated to request and receive Elite Answers’s permission for the placement of the Links on Alternative Sites. You may not modify a Link, unless you have received prior written consent from Elite Answers to do so. In the event that we determine that your use of any Link is not in compliance with the terms of this Agreement, we shall be entitled to take such measures as to render inoperative the Links used by you. You may not advertise the Sites in any way not authorized herein or not approved in advance by Elite Answers including, without limitation, the use of Links in connection with site-scraping, spam e-mails, blog spamming or any other illegal or unethical marketing practices. In addition to your use of Links you may promote the Sites by means of (i) distribution of CDs or other digital media containing Site-related promotional material (the "CDs") to potential Real New Clients, as defined below, (ii) the publication of bonus codes and (iii) any other method of promotion approved at any time by us (each a "Promotion" and collectively the "Promotions"). Your activities in relation to a Promotion shall be strictly in accordance with Elite Answers’s relevant guidelines as such shall exist and be amended from time to time. Your offering of a Promotion at any time shall be conditional on your receipt of our prior written approval for the Promotion and in the event that you do not receive our approval in relation to the Promotion, you shall not be permitted to receive any commissions generated on account of Real New Clients who have become such in connection unapproved Promotions.

3. Real New Clients.   A "Real New Client" shall mean an Internet user who accesses one of the Elite Answers Sites directly through a Link, opens a new account and makes a valid purchase. Neither you nor your relatives are eligible to become Real New Clients and should you or they do so you will not be eligible to receive the relevant commission. For this purpose, the term "relative" shall mean any of the following: spouse, partner, parent, child or sibling. The number of Real New Clients per individual household computer is strictly limited to one.

In the event that you provide Elite Answers with incorrect or incomplete details in relation to your preferred payment method and Elite Answers is not able to transfer the commissions to you, Elite Answers reserves the right to subtract from the commissions due to you an amount of money to reflect the required investigation and additional work created by your having provided incorrect or incomplete details.
