Ě          Uses any of the following words: "network," "affiliate," "partnership," "reseller," "alliance," or "relationship agreement," or any other words which may lead one to confuse the USAbox.com Associates Program with any other selling initiatives or which could otherwise be misleading;

Other Web Site Promotion

  1. To protect the integrity of the reputation of USAbox.com Associates as well as the USAbox.com brand name, you may not promote your site via certain forms of indiscriminate advertising, commonly referred to as "spamming." Accordingly, you may not promote your site via unsolicited commercial e-mail (UCE), postings to non-commercial newsgroups, or cross-postings to multiple newsgroups at once. In addition, you may not promote your site in any way that effectively conceals or misrepresents your identity, domain name, or return e-mail address.
  2. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may promote your site via mailings to recipients who are already customers or subscribers to your site's services, provided that the recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings. Further, you may promote your site via newsgroup postings to newsgroups that specifically welcome commercial messages (when in doubt, consult the newsgroup FAQ or moderators to be sure that such a message is acceptable in that newsgroup).
  3. In all promotion, you must clearly represent yourself and your site as entities independent from USAbox.com, USAbox.com's affiliated companies, the USAbox.com site, and any of USAbox.com's affiliated companies' Web sites.
  4. Generally, in any forum or media, you must honor the advertising practices and restrictions that are commonly considered acceptable by its readers.

USAbox.com, Inc., reserves the right at its sole discretion to modify the foregoing rules at any time and from time to time. USAbox.com, Inc., reserves the right to take action against any person or entity that does not conform to these rules.
