1. Definitions. The following is a list of defined terms used throughout this Agreement.
a. Affiliate. An "Affiliate" is an individual or entity that registers with JVZoo and agrees to display Links (hereinafter defined) and otherwise market products or services for Sellers (hereinafter defined) in order to generate approved sales by such Sellers, in exchange for commissions.
b. Insertion Order. An "Insertion Order" is the form describing the particular specifications by which a Seller is willing to allow an Affiliate to market its products or services. Insertion Orders may specify types of media used (e.g., Links or banner ads), details of approved sales, and commissions available for such approved sales. Insertion Orders may appear under a Seller's page in the Product Library or may be supplied separately to an Affiliate.
c. Link. A "Link" is a hyperlink placed by an Affiliate that, when clicked on, serves the Seller's website to the internet user's browser. The Link may be in the form of text, a product image, a button, a banner, or any other format acceptable to the Seller and defined in an applicable Insertion Order.
d. Product Library. The "Product Library" is the section of the JVZoo.com website where Sellers list the products or services for which they are willing to enter into an arrangement with an Affiliate for purposes of allowing that Affiliate to post Links and otherwise market the Seller's products or services.
e. Seller. A "Seller" is an individual or entity that registers with JVZoo and agrees to pay a commission for approved sales to a customer or user generated by an Affiliate registered with JVZoo. A Seller may also be referred to as a "Vendor."
As part of the Affiliate Program and the service offered on the Site, JVZoo may publish ratings for the Affiliates and/or the Sellers participating in the Affiliate Program, based on information supplied by the Affiliate or the Seller during the registration process and on information relating to sales performance for such Affiliate or Seller. Such ratings are based on criteria chosen by JVZoo, in its sole discretion. You acknowledge and agree that JVZoo has the right to evaluate information relating to You and to publish on the Site the ratings for You, based on the criteria, information, and methods JVZoo chooses, in its sole discretion. In no event does JVZoo warrant or guarantee correctness, comprehensiveness, completeness, accuracy, timeliness, or fitness for a particular use or purpose of any ratings on the Site, nor does JVZoo warrant or guarantee any results or performance based on any particular ratings. Such ratings are provided solely as a tool to aid Affiliates and Sellers in their decision about who they would like to work. You are solely responsible for investigating and determining the Affiliates with which You choose to work and for the consequences of such determination. In no way shall any rating be deemed an endorsement by JVZoo of any particular Affiliate.
3. Registration. In order to register as a Seller with JVZoo and to participate in the Affiliate Program, You must be at least eighteen (18) years of age and must complete the required application form found on the Site, which requires supplying a name, supplying a valid e-mail address and creating an acceptable password. Additionally, You must comply with all the requirements for creating a valid Payment Processing Account (hereinafter defined) and linking that account with the JVZoo payment system, as detailed in the following section.

You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of Your username and password and are solely responsible for all usage and activity on or through Your JVZoo Account, including use of Your JVZoo Account by a third party authorized by You. Any fraudulent, abusive or otherwise illegal activity may be grounds for termination of Your JVZoo Account by JVZoo, in its sole and absolute discretion, and referral to the appropriate law enforcement agencies.

8. Product Library and Insertion Orders. Once You have registered for the Affiliate Program, You are free to list as many of Your products or services in the Product Library for which You would like to have Affiliates post Links and otherwise advertise. For each listing, You are free to determine the types of advertisements You would like Affiliates to use (including Links, banner ads, and other advertising materials), the kinds of media in which Your approved advertisements can appear, and how much of a commission fee per completed sale will be paid to an Affiliate for advertising such product or service. You must provide this information through an Insertion Order, which You and the Affiliate or Affiliates of Your choosing must sign.
9. Affiliate Commission Fee. An Affiliate with whom You have approved to sell your products or services through your program will be entitled to receive its agreed-upon commission fee for each completed sale that it sends to You through the Links or materials it posts in the approved media.

For each order that completes the preceding process, Affiliate will receive the agreed upon fee, and You agree to allow Your selected JVZoo supported payment processor to provide such commission fee for each such completed sale.
10.Delayed Affiliate Fee. As a Seller, You may have the option through Your JVZoo Account to elect a delayed payment plan for any commission fees to an Affiliate. Before You can elect to use a delayed payment plan, You must first provide JVZoo with Your valid credit card information. If You are an existing Seller electing to use a delayed payment plan for the first time, You will be required to provide Your valid credit card information before you can re-access Your JVZoo Account. By electing such a delayed payment plan and providing Your credit card information to JVZoo, You represent and warrant that the information You provide is valid, accurate, and complete, and You specifically authorize JVZoo to use such credit card information to secure payment for any commission fees or other amounts owed by You to JVZoo. You shall notify JVZoo immediately of any changes to the credit card information You supply. Failure to provide valid, accurate, and complete credit card information or to notify JVZoo of any changes to that information will cause You to lose eligibility for any delayed payment plan, in addition to any other remedies available to JVZoo.
