The term of this Agreement will begin upon our acceptance of your Affiliate application and will end when terminated by either party.

You are only eligible to earn referral fees on sales occurring during the term of this agreement
To begin the enrollment process, Affiliate register at Affiliates page. DesignHost may reject Affiliate's application if DesignHost determines that Affiliate's site is unsuitable for the Affiliate Program. Reasons for rejection can include, but are not limited to the Affiliate's site promoting violence, discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age, or the Affiliate's site promoting illegal activities and/or violating intellectual property rights.
We will not be liable for indirect, special or consequential damages, or any loss of revenue, profits or data, arising in connection with this Agreement or the Program, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Further, our aggregate liability arising with respect to this Agreement and the Program will not exceed the total referral fees paid or payable to you under to this Agreement.
You acknowledge that you have read this agreement and agree to all its terms and conditions. You understand that we may at any time (directly or indirectly) solicit customer referrals on terms that may differ from those contained in this agreement or operate web sites that are similar to or compete with your website. You have independently evaluated the desirability of participating in the program and are not relying on any representation, guarantee or statement other than as set forth in this agreement.
Spamming, or the sending of unsolicited email, is STRICTLY prohibited. For general reference, we consider spam any email that is sent to more than 10 people at a time that did not ask for it to be sent to them. DesignHost will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. "Opt-in," or email sent with permission from the receiver, is acceptable as long as opt-out/removal requests are fully honored. DesignHost has a zero tolerance policy for SPAM. Any Affiliate found to be SPAMMING will be immediately removed from our affiliate program. The only recourse you will have to maintain your affiliate relationship is proof of the receiver's "opt in" (explicit permission from the receiver for any emails in question) that will nullify the validity of the SPAM complaint. Valid SPAM complaints will result in the immediate termination of your account and forfeiture of any commissions owed you.
When you visit DesignHost or send e-mails to us, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you by e-mail or by posting notices on this site. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.

You agree to display the Link Materials appropriately on your Web site and in advertisements, and to respect our trademarks, service marks, and other rights in the Link Materials.

DesignHost will endeavor to do its best to ensure accurate tracking of referrals made by affiliates.

Notwithstanding the above statement of responsibility by DesignHost to track sales, affiliates hereby acknowledge and accept that the tracking system employed by DesignHost is not 100% fail-safe and that there may on occasion be instances of referral sales made that are not credited to an affiliate for any of the following possible reasons:

Minimum affiliate payout only $20, for the total amount of 'approved' funds in your affiliate account. Payments are made via PayPal, or at the affiliate's option - in the form of a service credit towards DesignHost hosting products and services.
