You may not bid on any of our trademarked terms (which are identified below), including any variations or misspellings thereof for search or content based campaigns on Google, MSN, Yahoo, Facebook or any other network.2.

In the event of breach, we will forfeit all your commissions for a minimum of the past 30 days and your commission will be set to 0% without warning if you engage in PPC trademark bidding that uses our trademarked terms.

Trademarked Terms: “Little Bundle” (including capitalized variations thereof, the “Little Bundle Keywords”) are trademark-protected marks of Little Bundle. The use of these Little Bundle Keywords for bidding purposes or otherwise are strictly prohibited as the promotion of competing products from the use or association with Little Bundle Keywords is likely to cause customer confusion and violate Little Bundle's rights in its mark.

You may ONLY advertise coupon codes that are provided to you through the affiliate program.2. Posting any information about how to work around the requirements of a coupon/promotion (i.e. first time customers only) will result in removal from the program.3. Coupons must be displayed in their entirety with the full offer, valid expiration date and code. 4. You may NOT use any technology that covers up the coupon code and generates the affiliate click by revealing the code(s).5. You may NOT advertise coupon codes obtained from any non-affiliate marketing channel, including coupon codes from our email, paid search or any other non-affiliate advertising campaigns. 6. You may NOT give the appearance that any ongoing offer requires clicking from your website in order to redeem. For example, if all items on the site have free shipping over $100, you may not turn this into an offer that infers that the customer must click from your site to get this deal.
COUPON ATTRIBUTION & AUTHENTICATIONAffiliates whose primary business is posting coupons, who are viewed by the program as being a coupon site, and/or who are tagged as coupon in our system, may not be paid commissions for sales generated without a corresponding valid coupon code. Valid codes are defined as codes that are made available to the affiliate channel in general, through newsletters, and directly or privately to affiliates. Coupon codes that are not real, expired, not specific (i.e. up to 40% off sale items) or are long-term sitewide offers that do not require a code may not be considered as valid codes and the affiliate will not be given commission on these orders.
SUB-AFFILIATE NETWORKSPromoting Little Bundle through a sub-affiliate network is permitted, however you must be completely transparent with regards to where traffic from your sub-affiliates originated. Sub-affiliate networks must ensure that all sub-affiliates promoting the Little Bundle program adhere to our program terms and conditions. This includes restrictions on advertising through toolbars, browser extensions, and through any paid placements such as a pay-per-click campaigns. Sub-affiliate networks must also receive approval prior to allowing any type of coupon sub-affiliate to promote the Little Bundle program.

REVERSAL & COMMUNICATION POLICYLittle Bundle takes pride in its very low reversal rate, which we attribute to open communication with our affiliates. However, we reserve the right to reverse orders due to order cancellations, duplicate tracking, returns, disputed charges, and program violations as outlined in these terms and conditions.
Additionally, if we ask you for clarification or more information on any orders or clicks that we suspect may be in violation of our terms and conditions, we expect that you will respond in a timely and honest manner. Below are violations of our communications policy.
1. You are not forthcoming, intentionally vague or are found to be lying. 2. You are not responsive within a reasonable time period and after multiple attempts to contact with information listed in your network profile. 3. You cannot substantiate or validate the source of your traffic to our program with clear and demonstrable proof.
If any of the above apply, then we reserve the absolute right to reverse orders, set your commission to 0% or suspend you from the program for the period or orders in question. We know that many violations are a result of automated processes; however it is incumbent upon each affiliate to ensure that it has the appropriate checks and balances in place to pro-actively address these issues and adhere to our program rules. For the avoidance of doubt, the forfeiture of your commissions or suspension of your participation from the program shall not: (a) restrict us from perusing other remedies or reliefs legally available to us; or (b) prejudice any rights that have accrued and/or breaches that have arisen prior to such breach and which will remain fully reserved by us.
