    Cingular Heads in the Right Direction
    Got this today from them:

    Please be aware that Cingular does not allow any adware/download of any kind without explicit approval, as specified in Section 4.9 of the Affiliate Terms and Conditions.

    Section 4.9 - Affiliate may not utilize the services of any contextual network (AKA behavioral networks.) Contextual (or behavioral) networks are defined as any party serving pop-up ads, banner ads, page views or other forms of media based on user behavior, including search queries or visits to specific URLs, as a result of software downloaded by the user. Contextual networks forbidden include but are not limited to Claria, WhenU, HotBar, Exact Advertising, 180 Solutions, MarketMaker, Best Offers, Zone Media, Tremor Network and Contextweb.

    Any affiliate found in violation will be immediately removed from the program, denied commissions, and potentially face additional repercussions.



    I do however, wonder, what Specific Approval means...

    Seems like "any publicity is good publicity" will stay in Hollywood with record companies.

    Hopefully this is a trend where merchants start waking up and running clean programs.

    or maybe CYA'ing to comply with a court settlement. The proof will be in the pudding in seeing how well they are able to enforce their new TOS. Only time will tell on that. They do have a bit more motivation to do so.
