Affiliate Program, including the most up-to-date version of the Affiliate
Program Operating Agreement (collectively, the “Program Documents”). For example, no Program Fee are payable for a
purchase that is not correctly tracked or reported because the links from your

Affiliate Link that violates the terms of the Program Documents.

some other affirmative action on that intermediate site (a “Redirecting Link”),
(f) any Product purchased by a customer, where such customer
does not comply with the terms and conditions applicable to the Etha Site.
(g) any Product purchased by a customer who is referred to the

primary account holder as it appears on the account. If you have chosen payment
by direct deposit and you do not provide this information, or it is not valid
(for example, the account has been closed or changed), or the payment is
otherwise rejected by your bank, you may instead receive payment by check which
will be subject to the processing Fee described below until you provide valid
account information. If you select this
option, we reserve the right to hold Fee until the total amount due to you is

then-current Terms and Conditions. If
you select this option, we reserve the right to hold Fee until the total amount
due to you is at least $50.
If you do not select and maintain information for a payment
option, we will hold earned Fee until you make your selection.
If at any time there has been no substantial activity on your

$10. Further, any unpaid accrued Fee in your account may be subject to
escheatment under applicable law.

described in the Agreement, will constitute full payment and settlement to you
of amounts payable under the Agreement.

whatsoever, we reserve the right to adjust or offset the same against any
subsequent Fee payable to you under the Agreement.

(a) Affiliate Links
After you have been notified that you have been accepted into
the Affiliate Program, you are permitted to display Affiliate Links and

We will have no obligation to pay you fees if you fail to
properly format the links on your Site to the Etha Site as Affiliate Links.
(b) General Requirements Applicable to All Affiliate Links
Affiliate Links may be made available to you by us. If we inform
you that your Site or Customer Communications does not qualify to use certain
types of links, you must cease displaying those types of links on your Site and
Customer Communications. You are solely responsible for the content, style, and
placement of each link that you place on your Site or Customer Communications and
for ensuring that Affiliate Links include the appropriate formatting necessary
for us to properly track referrals of our customers from your Site or Customer
Communications. You must not encourage customers to bookmark your Affiliate

You may add or delete Products (and related Affiliate Links)
from your Site at any time without our approval.
You must remove from your Site any links and related references
to limited time promotions on or before the expiration date of that promotion.

You must not make inaccurate, overbroad, deceptive or otherwise
misleading claims about any Product, the Etha Site, or any of our policies,
promotions, or prices.

Site may change, your Site may only show prices and availability if: (a) we
serve the link in which that price and availability data are displayed.
In addition, if you choose to display prices for any Product on
your Site in any “comparison” format (including through the use of any
price-comparison tool or engine) together with prices for the same or similar
products offered through any web site or other means other than the Etha Site,
you must display both the lowest “new” price and, if we provide it to you, the
lowest “used” price at which the Product is available on the Etha Site.

separate written agreement referencing this Section 6, you will not use any

that does not materially alter the meaning of the text or cause the text to

available to you may contain a link to an informational page on an Etha Site

other identifiers, including the word “etha,” or any other trademark or
otherwise participate in keyword auctions on any Search Engine if the resulting

dispute relating in any way to the Affiliates Program or this Agreement will be
resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert
claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration
Act and federal arbitration law and the laws of the state of California,
without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern this Agreement
and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and us.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and
court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can
award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including
injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the
terms of this Agreement as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must
send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our
registered agent, Ethos Natural Medicine LLC, 401 Ryland St., STE 200-A, Reno, NV
89502. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration
Association (“AAA”) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary
Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available
at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing,
administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. We will
reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the
arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, we will not seek
attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the
claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by
telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you
live or at another mutually agreed location.
We each agree that any dispute resolution
proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class,
consolidated, or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in
arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also
both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or
other misuse of intellectual property rights.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in
this Agreement, we may seek injunctive or other relief in any state, federal,
or national court of competent jurisdiction for any actual or alleged
infringement of our or any other person or entity’s intellectual property or
proprietary rights. You further acknowledge and agree that our rights in the
Content are of a special, unique, extraordinary character, giving them peculiar
value, the loss of which cannot be readily estimated or adequately compensated
for in monetary damages.

may be given by us under this Agreement can be made, taken, or given in our

statement, whether on your Site or otherwise, that contradicts or may
contradict anything in this paragraph. If you authorize, assist, encourage, or

matter of this Agreement, you will be deemed to have taken the action yourself.
We reserve the right to modify any of the terms and
conditions contained in this Agreement (including those in any Terms and
Conditions and Privacy Policies) at any time and in our sole discretion by
posting a change notice, revised Agreement, or revised Program Policy on the Affiliates
Site or by sending notice of such modification to you by email to the primary

change by email will be effective on the date specified in such email but will
in no event be less than two business days after the date the email is sent).
YOUR CONTINUED PARTICIPATION IN THE AFFILIATES PROGRAM FOLLOWING THE EFFECTIVE
DATE OF SUCH NOTICE WILL CONSTITUTE YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE MODIFICATIONS. IF
ANY MODIFICATION IS UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU, YOUR ONLY RECOURSE IS TO TERMINATE
THIS AGREEMENT IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 6.
