Terms & Conditions
PainfulPleasures.com Affiliate Agreement
This PainfulPleasures.com Affiliate Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to an individual's or entity's participation in the PainfulPleasures.com Affiliate Program (the 'Program'). This Agreement is made and entered into by PainfulPleasures.com, and you, the applicant. As used in this Agreement, "we" means PainfulPleasures.com and "you" means the applicant. "Site" means a World Wide Web site and, depending on the context, refers either to (a) the PainfulPleasures.com site located at the URL http://www.PainfulPleasures.com or such other site as PainfulPleasures.com might designate, or (b) the site that you will link to our Site and which you have identified in your Program application.
Agreement Following Acceptance
The following terms and conditions will be effective if and only if PainfulPleasures.com accepts your application. By applying to be a PainfulPleasures.com affiliate, you agree to be bound and abide by such terms and conditions.
1. Links on Your Site. To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and referral fee accrual, we will authorize special link formats ("Special Links") to be used in all links between your Site and our Site. You must ensure that each of the links between your Site and our Site properly uses such special link formats. We will not be liable to you with respect to any failure by you to use Special Links, including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction of amounts that would otherwise be paid to you pursuant to this Agreement. Each Special Link, as viewed by a customer, will be in the form of a PainfulPleasures.com logo, text link or graphic provided by us. The PainfulPleasures.com logo for each Special Link will be served by the PainfulPleasures.com servers, which can only be accessed by using the special "tagged" link formats. You agree only to use the PainfulPleasures.com logos, text links and images provided by us, and you further agree not to obtain or use PainfulPleasures.com logos or images from any other source. Your Site's title and other trademarks and linking logos must appear at least as prominently as the PainfulPleasures.com logo that is used to create the Special Link.
2. Order Processing. We will process product orders placed by customers who follow Special Links from your Site to our Site. We reserve the right to reject orders that do not comply with any requirements that we periodically may establish. We will be responsible for all aspects of order processing and fulfillment. Among other things, we will prepare order forms, process payments, cancellations, and returns, and handle customer service. PainfulPleasures.com will track sales made to customers who purchase products using Special Links from your Site to our Site and will be solely responsible for making available to you reports summarizing this sales activity through our reporting site. The form, content, and frequency of the reports may vary from time to time at our discretion. You hereby agree not to disclose the information contained in these reports to any third party without prior written consent from PainfulPleasures.com.
3. Referral Fees. We will pay you referral fees on certain product sales to customers as provided in Section 4. For a product sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must follow a Special Link from your Site to our Site, select and purchase the product using our automated ordering system, accept delivery of the product at the shipping destination, and remit full payment to us ("Qualifying Purchase"). We will not, however, pay referral or other fees on any products that are subsequently purchased after the customer has reentered the PainfulPleasures.com Site other than through a Special Link from your Site, even if the customer previously followed a Special Link from your Site to the PainfulPleasures.com Site. You may not purchase products during sessions initiated through the Special Links on your Site for your own use, resale, or commercial use of any kind. This includes orders for customers or on behalf of customers or orders for products to be used by you or your friends, relatives or associates in any manner. Such purchases may result, in our sole discretion, in the withholding of referral fees or the termination of this Agreement.
4. Referral Fee Schedule. You agree and acknowledge that the referral fees you earn pursuant to Section 3 will be in amounts established by us and posted on our reporting site together with the application materials. The Referral Fee Schedule is incorporated into this Agreement by reference. We reserve the right to modify the Referral Fee Schedule at any time in our sole discretion upon prior notice to you. Referral fees shall be limited to a maximum of 10% per item unless otherwise provided in the Referral Fee Schedule. The referral fees shall be calculated as a percentage of "qualifying revenues", which are revenues derived by us from Qualifying Purchases, excluding revenues derived from and costs associated with shipping, handling, gift-wrapping, taxes, service charges, credit card processing fees, bad debt, and promotional discounts as advertised.
5. Referral Fee Payment. Approximately 30 days following the end of each calendar month, we will send you a check for the referral fees earned on net sales of products that were shipped during that month, less any taxes that we are required by law to withhold. However, if the referral fees payable to you for any calendar month are less than $25.00, we will hold those referral fees until the total amount due is at least $25.00 or until this Agreement is terminated. If a product that generated a referral fee is returned by the customer, we will deduct the corresponding referral fee from your next monthly payment. If there is no subsequent payment, we will send you a bill for the returned product referral fee.
6. Policies and Pricing. Customers who buy products through this Program will be deemed to be our customers. Accordingly, all PainfulPleasures.com rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service, and product sales will apply to those customers. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. For example, we will determine the prices to be charged for products sold under this Program in accordance with our own pricing policies. Product prices and availability may vary from time to time. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to present accurate information, but we cannot guarantee the availability or price of any particular product.

We disclaim all liability for the matters stated in this Section 9. Further, you will indemnify and hold PainfulPleasures.com, its officer, directors, employees and agents, harmless from all claims, damages, and expenses (including, without limitation, attorneys' fees) relating to the content development, operation, maintenance, and contents of your Site or any breach of your obligations under this Agreement.
10. Use of the PainfulPleasures.com name. You may not use the PainfulPleasures.com name, or any variation thereof, in any manner not expressly authorized by this Agreement. In particular, you may NOT use PainfulPleasures.com's name, or any variation thereof, in metatags; you may NOT use PainfulPleasures.com's name, or any variation thereof, in hidden text or source code; you may NOT use PainfulPleasures.com's name, or any variation thereof, in your domain or sub-domain; you may NOT engineer your site in such a manner that pulls Internet traffic away from PainfulPleasures.com.
