I am just noticing now as I make the switch on my end for some of the merchants that have migrated from the BeFree platform to CJ's that the links contain a whole bunch of extra parameters anyone else noticing this?

For example this simple text link to BrookStone.com has all these extra parameters

http://www.***********/click-XXXX-10...e.com+Homepage

?cm_ven=CJ
&cm_cat=xxxxx&cm_pla=xxxxx <- CJ PID
&cm_ite=Brookstone.com+Homepage

Anyone know why and if all of these are needed?

Sorry if this has already been posted but I did do a search and couldn't find anything.

Thanks in Advance!
