a. To begin the enrollment process, you must submit a completed Affiliate Program Signup Form. The Signup Form can be found at https://garysvitamincloset.refersion.com
We will evaluate your application in good faith and will notify you of your acceptance or rejection in a timely manner. We may reject your application if we determine (in our sole discretion) that your Site is not suitable for the Affiliate Program for any reason, including, but not limited to, its inclusion of content that is, in our opinion, unlawful or otherwise in violation of our policy.
b. If we reject your application for any reason, you may not re-apply to the Affiliate Program utilizing the same domain name/URL or reapply using a different domain/URL name and then add the previously rejected domain name/URL to your affiliate account. GNA, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to notify or to not notify any prospective affiliate of their rejection or removal from the Affiliate Program at any time.
3. Promotion of Our Affiliate Relationship Use of Links.
If you qualify and agree to participate as an Affiliate, we will make a variety of graphic and textual links available to you (each referred to herein as a "Link" or collectively, as the "Links"). The Links will serve to identify your site as a member of the Affiliate Program and will establish a link from your website or e-mail to GNA’s website. Visitors to your site who click on a Link and get re-directed to GNA’s website shall be “Referred Customers.” You agree to cooperate fully with us in order to establish and maintain such Links. You further agree that your use of the Links must be in compliance with this Agreement at all times. GNA may modify the Links from time to time in its sole discretion. You will not use graphic or textual images (indicating a Link) or text messages to promote GNA that are not approved in advance by GNA. All Affiliate Sites shall display the Links prominently in relevant sections of their website. Furthermore, you agree not to use cookie stuffing techniques that set the affiliate tracking cookie without the Referred Customer's knowledge (e.g. iframe). Any information with respect to GNA that is going to be displayed on the Affiliate Site must be preapproved by GNA in writing. Each link connecting users of your Site to the GNA Site shall not alter the look, feel, or functionality of the GNA Site. Affiliates that create or generate their own creative materials in an effort to promote GNA through the Program must get GNA’s written approval of all such materials prior to publishing.
4. Obligations Regarding Your Affiliate Site
