7. Promotion Restrictions/ Forbidden Actions
You are free to promote your own web sites, Apps or Social Media accounts but naturally any promotion that mentions paw-five.com could be perceived by the public or the press as a joint effort. You should know that certain forms of advertising are always prohibited by paw-five.com. For example, advertising commonly referred to as "spamming" is unacceptable to us and could cause damage to our name. Other generally prohibited forms of advertising include the use of unsolicited commercial email (UCE), postings to non-commercial newsgroups and cross-posting to multiple newsgroups at once. In addition, you may not advertise in any way that effectively conceals or misrepresents your identity, your domain name, or your return email address. You may use mailings to customers to promote paw-five.com so long as the recipient is already a customer or subscriber of your services or web site, and recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings. Also, you may post to newsgroups to promote paw-five.com so long as the news group specifically welcomes commercial messages. At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your web sites as independent from paw-five.com. If it comes to our attention that you are spamming, we will consider that cause for immediate termination of this Agreement and your participation in the paw-five.com Affiliate Program. Any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.
All confidential information, including, but not limited to, any business, technical, financial, and customer information, disclosed by one party to the other during negotiation or the effective term of this Agreement which is marked "Confidential," will remain the sole property of the disclosing party, and each party will keep in confidence and not use or disclose such proprietary information of the other party without express written permission of the disclosing party.9.
