Referral Program Participation Requirements

This Referral Program Participation Requirements page is part of the Operating Agreement that governs your participation in the $99 Social Referral Program. This page describes requirements and restrictions applicable to you as a $99 Social Referral Program Participant. From time to time, we may modify the participation requirements described on this page in accordance with the Operating Agreement. All capitalized terms used below that are not defined on this page have the meanings given to them in the Operating Agreement.

  1. You will ensure that your site is not unsuitable (as described in Section 2 of the Operating Agreement).
  2. You will not display or otherwise use our trademarks or logos (including any $99 Social Mark) except solely as expressly permitted under and in accordance with the Operating Agreement.
  3. You will not remove, obscure, or alter, or make invisible, illegible, or indecipherable to visitors of your site, any of our trademarks or logos (including any $99 Social Mark) that we include in a Referral Link.
  4. You will use Content solely in accordance with the terms of the Operating Agreement and within the express scope of the license granted in Section 10 of the Operating Agreement. Without limiting the foregoing, you will use Content solely to send end users and sales to the $99 Social Site and will not link any Content to, or in conjunction with any Content direct traffic to, any page of a site other than the $99 Social Site (however, parts of your site that are not closely associated with the Content may contain links to sites other than the $99 Social Site).
  5. You will not engage in any promotional, marketing, or other advertising activities on behalf of us, or in connection with the $99 Social Site or the Program, that are not expressly permitted under the Operating Agreement without express written consent from $99 Social. For example, you will not engage in any promotional, marketing, or other advertising activities in any offline manner, including by using any of our trademarks or logos (including any $99 Social Mark), any Content, or any Referral Link or Referral Code ID in connection with an offline promotion or in any other offline manner (e.g., in any printed material, mailing, SMS, MMS, or other document) without our consent. Upon our request, you will provide us with written certification that you have complied with this Section 5. We will specify the form of, and content required in, that certification in our request. Any failure by you to provide the certification in accordance with our request will constitute a material breach of this Operating Agreement.
  6. Except as agreed between you and us in a separate written agreement referencing this Participation Requirement, you will not use any Content or Referral Link or Referral Code ID, or otherwise link to the $99 Social Site, on or in connection with any client-side software application (e.g., a browser plug-in, helper object, toolbar, extension, or component or any other application executable or installable by an end user) on any device, including computers, mobile phones, tablets, or other handheld devices.
  7. You will not add to, delete from, or otherwise alter any Content in any way, including by adding additional information (e.g., you may not insert words into a customer review), except that you may resize Content consisting of a graphic image in a manner that maintains the original proportions of the image or truncate Content consisting of text in a manner that does not materially alter the meaning of the text or cause the text to become factually incorrect or misleading.
  8. You will not sell, resell, redistribute, sublicense, or transfer any Content. For example, you will not use, or enable or facilitate the use of, Content on or within any application, platform, site, or service that requires you to sublicense or otherwise give any rights in or to any Content to any other person or entity.
  9. You will promptly remove from your site and delete or otherwise destroy any Content that is no longer displayed on the $99 Social Site or that we notify you is no longer available for your use.
  10. You will not use any Content, including any name or likeness embodied in that Content, in a manner that implies a person’s or company’s endorsement or sponsorship of, or commercial tie-in or other association with us or our services (including by placing unrelated third party materials in close proximity to Content).
  11. You will not include in or on, or cause to be included in or on, your site anything that directly or indirectly promises or implies a promise of any results or benefits of a customer’s use of the $99 Social Services, except as may be contained within or on the Content (e.g. you may not say or imply the Services “will increase sales,” “drive leads,” “increase site traffic,” or “increase business”).
  12. You will not seek to purchase or register any Proprietary Term (as defined in Section 7 of the Operating Agreement) for use in any Search Engine; purchase, register, or otherwise use any Proprietary Term as or in a domain or subdomain name; or register or use any Proprietary Term as or in any Referral Code ID or “link tag.” In addition to any other rights or remedies available to us, upon our request you will cause any Search Engine designated by us to exclude Proprietary Terms from keywords used to display your advertising content in association with search results (e.g., request exclusion by negative keyword bidding), assuming the Search Engine offers such exclusion capabilities.
  13. You will not bid on or purchase keywords, search terms, or other identifiers (including Proprietary Terms) or otherwise participate in keyword auctions on any Search Engine if the resulting paid search advertisement is a Prohibited Paid Search Placement as defined in Section 7 of the Operating Agreement. You may purchase paid search advertisements and submit links to Search Engines to appear in response to a general Internet search query or keyword (i.e., in natural, free, organic, or unpaid search results), so long as you comply with the Operating Agreement and those paid or unpaid search results send users to your site and not directly or indirectly, via a Redirecting Link, to the $99 Social Site.
  14. You will not offer any person or entity any consideration or incentive (including any money, rebate, discount, points, donation to charity or other organization, or other benefit) for using Referral Links (e.g., by implementing any “rewards” or loyalty program that incentivizes persons or entities to visit the $99 Social Site via your Referral Links).
  15. You will not intercept, record, redirect, read, interpret, or fill in the contents of any electronic form or other material submitted to us by any person or entity.

  20. You will not take any action that could reasonably cause any customer confusion as to our relationship with you, or as to the site on which any functions or transactions (e.g., search, browse, or order) are occurring.
  21. You will not include on your site, display, or otherwise use Referral Links, Referral Code IDs or Content in connection with any spyware, malware, virus, worm, Trojan horse, or other malicious or harmful code, or any software application not expressly and knowingly authorized by users prior to being downloaded or installed on their computer or other electronic device.
  22. You will not frame the $99 Social Site, or any part of it, within your site, including by display within an integrated web browser (e.g., WebView) within a Mobile Application.

Further, you will not offer any Services on your site for resale or commercial use of any kind.
  29. You will not cloak, hide, spoof, or otherwise obscure the URL of your site containing Referral Links (including by use of a redirecting page) or the user agent of the application in which Content is displayed or used such that we cannot reasonably determine the site or application from which a customer clicks through such Referral Link to the $99 Social Site.
  30. You will not use any content from or about $99 Social unless explicitly designated for use by our referral program participants including, but not limited to: images, names, copy, or anything else relating to our staff or company ownership, images or copy taken directly from any page of our website or any pages that promote $99 Social services or the company, and images, copy, or anything else from $99 Social’s social media pages or social media pages of our staff.
