Affiliate Network Operating Agreement
This Affiliate Network Operating Agreement ("Agreement") contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to your participation in Net Apparel’s Affiliate Network, which is administered by The LinkShare Network, and the establishment of Links from your web site to the Net Apparel Site.
"Affiliate" means any business, individual or entity whose application to participate in the Affiliate Network has been accepted, and that displays and/or provides Links to the Net Apparel Site in exchange for receiving remuneration from Net Apparel for sales resulting from such display in accordance with this Agreement.
"Affiliate Network" means the Affiliate Sites of all Affiliates, collectively.
"Affiliate Site" means each Affiliate's web site which, pursuant to an agreement with Net Apparel, provides Links to the Net Apparel Site.
"Net Apparel" means Net Apparel LLC.
"Net Apparel Site" means Net Apparel's web site, www.justmysize.com.
2. Enrollment in the Affiliate Network
To begin the enrollment process, submit a complete Affiliate Membership Agreement via the LinkShare Site or the Net Apparel Site. Net Apparel will notify you of its acceptance or rejection in a timely manner. Net Apparel may reject your application for any reason, in its sole discretion. Without limiting the foregoing, Net Apparel will reject your application if your web site includes content that is in any way unlawful, harmful, threatening, defamatory, obscene, harassing, or racially, ethnically, or otherwise objectionable.
A. Once your web site has been accepted into the Affiliate Network and becomes an Affiliate Site, Net Apparel will make available to you a variety of graphical and textual links that point to specific URLs ("Links"), which, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, you may display on your Affiliate Site. The Links will identify your Affiliate Site as a member of the Affiliate Network and will establish a link from your Affiliate Site to the Net Apparel Site. You may display on your Affiliate Site any number or combination of Links.
B. You agree to:
(i) cooperate fully with Net Apparel in order to establish and maintain the Links;
(ii) display on your Affiliate Site only those Links to the Net Apparel Site that are provided to you by Net Apparel;
(iii) upon request by Net Apparel, promptly replace any Link with a new Link provided by Net Apparel from time to time; and
(iv) display such Links prominently in the relevant sections of your Affiliate Site.
C. You acknowledge that, through your use of the Links, Net Apparel may receive information from or about users of your Affiliate Site, and you consent that Net Apparel may use and disclose any such information.
D. You will in no way alter the look, feel or functionality of a Link, nor will you alter the URL to which it points.
E. In addition, Net Apparel encourages (but does not require) you to include a Link to the home page of the Net Apparel Site.
A. You will receive commissions only with respect to those Net Apparel products that are (i) sold by Net Apparel via the Net Apparel Site during the term of this Agreement, (ii) purchased by a customer during a visit to the Net Apparel Site that was accomplished either (a) via a Link from your Affiliate Site, or (b) within seven days after accessing the Net Apparel Site via a Link from your Affiliate Site; provided that, (I) the customer used the same computer and browser during both the initial visit and the visit during which the purchase was made, and (II) the customer did not, during the seven-day period following the initial visit, delete (or set the computer to automatically delete) the cookie placed by Net Apparel on the customer’s computer at the time of the initial visit, (iii) shipped by Net Apparel, and (iv) for which Net Apparel has received full payment; (each, an "Eligible Purchase"). You acknowledge that Net Apparel, in its sole discretion, may reject any order that it receives via your Affiliate Site. Eligible Purchases must occur during the term of this Agreement (i.e., before you give or receive notice of termination), and commissions earned before the date of termination will remain payable only if the applicable orders are not canceled or returned. Commissions will be based on the aggregate amount actually paid to Net Apparel for Eligible Purchases, excluding amounts collected by Net Apparel for sales and other taxes, duties, gift-wrapping, shipping, handling, and similar charges, amounts due to credit card fraud and bad debt, and credits for returned products ("Net Sales"). Affiliates receive a commission of 5% of Net Sales for each Eligible Purchase.
B. Within thirty (30) days after the end of each calendar month, Net Apparel will send you (i) a commission check for applicable commissions earned by you during such month (less any taxes required to be withheld under applicable law), and (ii) a statement of activity, provided, however, that Net Apparel will not send you a commission check unless you have accumulated at least $25 in commissions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if this Agreement terminates before you have accumulated at least $25 in commissions, Net Apparel will send you a check for the total commissions accumulated by you after such termination, in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 8(B)(ii).
C. You shall be responsible for any taxes required to be paid with respect to commissions Net Apparel pays to you.
5. Net Apparel's Obligations
A. You shall not be a party to any transaction between Net Apparel and a customer who purchases from Net Apparel via your Affiliate Site. All such customers shall be subject to Net Apparel's standard applicable polices and procedures, as such polices and procedures may change from time to time. Net Apparel will be solely responsible for all customer service related to any order placed by a customer via your Affiliate Site.
B. Net Apparel will give you a password that will allow you to access a web site that is updated each business day with a record of Eligible Purchases made via your Affiliate Site. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Net Apparel may, at any time, change the method by which it informs you of sales activities generated by your Affiliate Site.

Basicly that they updated thier affiliate operating agreement to establish a program policy for search marketing efforts, coupon code use, and email marketing on their behalf.
Kind of on point to various different topics blowing around on ABW at the moment.
Other than that, Just trying to keep a turkey in suspense.
