During sessions initiated through any of your Affiliate Links, you may not purchase products for resale or for commercial use of any kind without our written permission.

You may not form any combination marks with the Mark. You agree that title to, and ownership of, the Mark shall remain with us at all times.

You agree that any benefits and goodwill arising from your use of the Mark shall inure solely to our benefit. 8. Referral Fees 8.a. Calculation of Referral Fees. For as long as you are a Participant, we will pay you a Referral Fee based on the merchandise sales volume calculated separately for each month. The Referral Fee you receive will be the sum of 10% of each Referral Order’s Sale Price (defined in sections 8.a.1). Shareasale.com handles all commission payments. Please visit Shareasale.com for more information regarding minimum payouts and timing of payments. 8.a.1. Identifying Referral Orders. You understand and agree that each Referral Order is based on a visitor clicking on an Affiliate Link posted on your website and, subsequently, placing an order with us during the same session or within 30 days of first linking to our site, if and only if, the session cookie is still active. A session cookie persists 30 days unless the visitor declines the Cookie or deletes the Cookie from his or her hard drive. Further, if the same customer returns to our site through by linking through another Leisure Arts marketing partner or affiliate within 30 days of first linking through your site during a later session and makes a purchase, the purchase will not generate revenue for you despite the fact that the customer previously entered our website via one of your Affiliate Links. If a cookie is deleted, declined or overwritten, no sale will be associated with your Affiliate account. In addition, purchases paid for with Gift Certificates are not considered Referral Orders and are not eligible to earn Referral Fees. 8.a.2. Determining the Sale Price. For purposes hereof, Sale Price means money actually received by us from the sale of our products, less discounts, shipping, handling, returns, and sales tax charges. Purchases paid for with Gift Certificates are not considered Referral Orders and are not eligible to earn Referral Fees. 8.b. Referral Fee Restrictions. You may not attempt to circumvent the Referral Fee Schedule or artificially increase your Referral Fees by intentionally featuring or purchasing, or requesting or encouraging any third party to purchase, low-price items offered on our website (as determined by us) for the purpose of exceeding any Referral Fee threshold. With respect to returned products, an amount equal to the applicable Referral Fees previously paid to you will be deducted from future payments; or, if there are no future payments, you will be billed for any such amount. 9. Monthly Bonuses Leisure Arts may develop bonuses for qualifying Participants by means of monthly or other referral promotions. Compensations may vary depending on the promotion. All Participants will be informed of upcoming promotions via an Affiliate newsletter, email messages, and/or the Affiliate Website. 10. Publicity 10.a. You shall not create, publish, distribute, or permit any written material that makes reference to Leisure Arts without first submitting such material to us and receiving our prior written consent. 10.b. We may publish and promote your name as an Affiliate with your prior written consent. 11. Agreement Cancellation/Termination Either party may cancel or terminate this Agreement at any time and for any reason by written notice to the other party. Upon termination of this Agreement, you will immediately cease use of, and remove from your website, all links to our websites and all trademarks, trade dress, and logos, as well as all other materials provided by, or on behalf of, us to you pursuant hereto or in connection with the Program. We may withhold payment of the final Referral Fee for a reasonable amount of time to allow for product returns. Sections 10 and 12-16 shall survive the termination of this Agreement. 12. Agreement Modifications We may modify any of the terms of this Agreement (including, without limitation, the Referral Fee) upon seven (7) days' notice by posting such change on the Share A Sale Affiliate Network Website and/or by providing you with written notice of such change. Your continued participation in the Program after such notice shall be deemed acceptance of the revised terms. 13.
