The Sleep Sense Affiliate Program Terms and Conditions
This is the fine print, finicky details, and stuff that lawyers want me to include. It is, however, super-important that you read it over and understand what you're agreeing to when you sign up as an affiliate. Especially the stuff about spam and keywords.
By participating in the Sleep Sense affiliate program, operated by Sleep Sense Publishing Inc. (the "Program"), you agree with everything below.
In consideration of participating in the Program, You agree to the following terms:
Under no circumstances shall You send commercial electronic mail messages as defined in the new Federal spam law, the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 [the "Act"], with respect to the Sleep Sense Affiliate Program. For clarification, this does not prohibit You from sending transactional or relationship messages as defined in the Act. Sleep Sense Publishing Inc. reserves the right to collect, withhold, or cancel any and all compensation related to the content You send via commercial electronic mail messages.
2) Tracking Tags.
The tools, resources and creative assets (collectively, "Assets") that are provided to You by Sleep Sense Publishing Inc. contain important information that helps make sure Transactions generated by You are properly attributed to (so that you can get paid.) You agree not to corrupt, modify or disable the tracking functionality provided to You in these Assets.
You shall not purchase search engine keywords or domain names that use the words "Sleep Sense" , "SleepSense" , "Obleman" , or "Dana Obleman" and/or certain variations and misspellings thereof.
You shall not purchase or register keywords, Pay Per Click advertising, AdWords, search terms, domain names, or other identifying terms that include the word "Sleep Sense" , "SleepSense" , "Obleman" , or "Dana Obleman" or certain variations and misspellings thereof for use in any search engine, portal, sponsored advertising service or other search or referral service.
Specifically, this policy prohibits You from:
Bidding on the words "Sleep Sense" , "SleepSense" , "Obleman" , or "Dana Obleman" and any keyword string that includes these terms. For example, "SleepSense book", "SleepSense program", "Dana Obleman book", "Obleman sleep training", "Sleep Sense method", etc.; and
Bidding on variations of "Sleep Sense" , "SleepSense" , "Obleman" , or "Dana Obleman": for example "Sllep Sense", "Sleep-Sense", www.SleepSense.com", "dana-obleman", "obelman", www.sleepsense", "ww.sleepsense.com", "sleep-sense.com", "www,SleepSense.com", "sleep.sense", "dana.obleman", etc.
Purchasing domain names based on "Sleep Sense" , "SleepSense" , "Obleman" , or "Dana Obleman" or any variations thereof: for example "sleeepsense.com", "sleepcents.com", "obelman.com", "sleepsenseproducts.com", "danaoblemanresources.com" etc.

If Sleep Sense Publishing Inc. determines, in its sole discretion, that You have purchased or attempted to purchase "Sleep Sense" , "SleepSense" , "Obleman" , or "Dana Obleman" keywords or domain names, or any one of the three cited examples above, then Sleep Sense Publishing may (without limiting any other remedies available to it) pursue any or all of the following actions:
- Withhold all compensation otherwise payable to You beginning with the date on which You purchased the prohibited terms;
- Remove You from the Sleep Sense Affiliate Program permanently; and/or
- Contact the search engine in which your ad was found to ask that these ads be removed immediately and permanently.
4) Joining the Program
After you've filled out the application form and are accepted as an affiliate, you are bound by the terms of this agreement. Your participation in the program is solely for this purpose: to legally advertise our website to receive a commission on products purchased by your referral individuals.
I will not pay a commission on a purchase of a product that you make through your own affiliate account. If you want a review copy of any of my products, just e-mail me and we'll take it from there.
5) Revocation of Affiliate Status
Your affiliate application and status in the program will be suspended or terminated for any of the following reasons:
* Inappropriate advertisements (False claims, misleading hyperlinks)
* Spamming (mass email, mass newsgroup posting, etc.)
* Advertising on sites containing/promoting illegal activities
* Violation of intellectual property rights.
* Tampering with any affiliate codes, cookies or the affiliate tracking system in any way.
This program can be cancelled at any time, at my sole discretion, with no notice. Sorry, that's just the way it has to be.
6) Payment Details
You will earn 35% of the cost of any product sold through your affiliate tracking link.
I retain the right to change the product pricing at any time, including price testing and special discounts.
I will payout all owing affiliate payments on the first business day of each month, via PayPal. I will reverse any commission paid to you, and subtract said commission from future payments to you, for refunds or chargebacks.
Affiliate commissions are based on and paid in US Dollars.
7) Cookie Expiry and Overwrite Policy
Like most affiliate programs, this system works by leaving a cookie on the visitor's computer after they visit this site through your link. This cookie is set to expire after 60 days.
If the visitor comes to this site through your link, and then revisits this site through another affiliate's link, you cookie will be overwritten by theirs, and they will be credited with any sale that happens after this.
8) Terms of the agreement
These terms will begin upon your sign up with the affiliate program and will end when your affiliate account is terminated. The terms of this agreement may be modified by me at any time, and posted on this page. If any modification to the terms is unacceptable to you, your only choice is to terminate your affiliate account. Your continuing participation in the program will constitute your acceptance of any change.
I will not be liable for indirect or accidental damages (loss of revenue, commissions) due to affiliate tracking failures, loss of database files, and any results of "intents of harm" to the program or our website. I do not make any expressed or implied warranties with respect to the affiliate program and/or products sold at this site. We make no claim that the operation of the affiliate program and our website will be error-free and we will not be liable for any interruptions or errors.
This Affiliate Program provided is provided on an 'as is', 'as available' basis without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose or Non-Infringement.
