If you are not a member of The BrillKids Community, you must complete a registration form to join The BrillKids Community and then read and agree to this Agreement. BrillKids will evaluate your registration form and notify you whether you and/or your website ("Site") is accepted for participation in the BrillKids Affiliate Program ("Program).

This agreement governs participation in the BrillKids Affiliate Program only.

Once you are accepted into the Program, you will be able to participate in the Program subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. You should also note that if you are accepted to participate in the Program and your Site is thereafter determined (in our sole discretion) to be unsuitable based on the criteria herein for the Program, we may terminate this Agreement.


This Master Agreement ("Agreement") is made between BrillKids Inc. ("BrillKids") and you ("Affiliate").


The Affiliate is registered as a member of The BrillKids Community.

Affiliate and BrillKids each desire to establish the general terms and conditions that shall govern advertising and commission arrangements between Affiliate and BrillKids resulting from Affiliate's participation in The BrillKids Community.


In consideration of the promises set forth below, BrillKids and Affiliate agree as follows:


1.1. From time to time, BrillKids may post on The BrillKids Community offers to pay to other participants a specified commission in return for certain advertising services leading to a Qualifying Link, as defined in Section 3.2 below. If such offers receive an identification number from The BrillKids Community, they shall be deemed to be an "Offer" for purposes of this Agreement. The term "Offer" shall also include any counter-offers resulting from an Offer.

1.2. If an Offer made by one party is accepted by the other party in accordance with the Offer's terms via The BrillKids Community, an "Engagement" will have been formed. Each Engagement shall have the same identification number as the original Offer that lead to the Engagement and shall be governed by the terms and conditions of this Agreement. However, in the event of any inconsistency between the terms of the specific Engagement and the terms of this Agreement, the terms of the Engagement shall govern.

1.3. At any time prior to Affiliate providing a Qualifying Link, BrillKids may with or without notice (a) change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of an Offer or an Engagement or (b) remove, alter, or modify any graphic or banner ad submitted by BrillKids for an Offer or an Engagement. Affiliate agrees to promptly implement any request from BrillKids to remove, alter or modify any graphic or banner ad submitted by BrillKids that is being used by Affiliate as part of an Engagement.

1.4. If the Affiliate creates a public presence (this clause covers online domains and third party sales websites), the Affiliate must follow the retail pricing as shown in the BrillKids Online Store to create a level competition for all affiliates and non-conflict with official partners and distributors.


2.1. Affiliate will link its site to areas within BrillKids's Website or Online Store ("Store") using special URLs specified in the Engagement (the "Required URLs"). Affiliate may post as many links to the Required URLs and the rest of BrillKids as it likes on Affiliate's site. The position, prominence and nature of links on the Affiliate's site shall comply with any requirements specified in the Engagement and this Agreement, but otherwise will be in the discretion of Affiliate.
Affiliate must ensure that the proper graphics are used with the appropriate URLs, and that the URLs link to the correct pages. Affiliate promptly shall remove links to the Required URLs and BrillKids's site upon BrillKids's request.

2.2. Affiliate may not bid on search terms or keywords utilized by any internet search engine or other directory or referral services (e.g. Yahoo Search Marketing, Google, etc. collectively "Search Engines") to return or prompt internet search results if such keyword is, includes, or is confusingly similar to any BrillKids trademark or service mark, (including but not limited to BrillKids, Little Reader, Little Math, BrillKids Store, Little Musician, BrillBaby, ParentWeb and BrillKids Forum). Affiliate may be required to employ negative keyword matching to prevent violation of this guideline. Affiliate may bid on generic search terms (babies, teach baby, baby reading, etc.) from Search Engines provided that Affiliate's search terms, listing titles, and descriptions, and the content of their websites do not violate the copyright or any other rights of BrillKids or third party, as determined by BrillKids at its sole discretion, or otherwise violate the Terms of Service for the Search Engine that will display the advertising.

2.3. Affiliate shall not make any representations, warranties or other statements concerning BrillKids, BrillKids's site, any of BrillKids's products or services, or BrillKids's site policies, except as expressly authorized by the Engagement.

2.4. Affiliate is responsible for notifying BrillKids and The BrillKids Community of any malfunctioning of the Required URLs or other problems with Affiliate's participation in the Engagement.

2.5. Affiliate will not present or use any content at its site, including, without limitation, graphical images, logos, text copy, editorial copy, press releases or marks, that (i) could be interpreted to suggest that such content has been authored or otherwise provided by, or represents the views or opinions of, BrillKids; (ii) is misleading, defamatory, libelous, obscene, or otherwise objectionable; (iii) infringes, derogates, dilutes, or impairs the rights of BrillKids or any third party; (iv) refers to BrillKids but is used as part of a name of a product or service of a company other than BrillKids; or (v) is used in any other manner inconsistent with any term of this Agreement or with any provision of law.

2.6. Affiliate will not engage in deceptive software download or computer settings practices to promote BrillKids, BrillBaby or BrillKids's sites. The prohibited deceptive practices included, but are not limited to, installing software without user knowledge, changing a user's home page without securing user permission, and offering downloadable software that does not install.


3.1. BrillKids agrees to pay Affiliate the commission specified in the Engagement if BrillKids sells to a visitor to BrillKids.com (a "Customer") a product or service that is the subject of the Engagement and if that Customer has accessed BrillKids.com and purchased the product or service via a Qualifying Link.

3.2. A "Qualifying Link" is a link from Affiliate's site to BrillKids.com using one of the Required URLs or any other URL provided by BrillKids for use in The BrillKids Community if it is the last link to BrillKids that the Customer uses during a Session where a sale of a product or a service to Customer occurs. A "Session" is either (a) a period of 72 hours from the time of a Customer's initial contact with BrillKids via a link from the Affiliate's site or the Engagement expires or is terminated or (b) if a Customer links to BrillKids from more than one affiliate site within a 72-hour period, then the period of time beginning from a Customer's initial contact with BrillKids via a link from the Affiliate's site and terminating when the Customer either returns to BrillKids via a link from a site other than Affiliate's site or the Engagement expires or is terminated.

3.3. BrillKids shall have the sole right and responsibility for processing all orders made by Customers. Affiliate acknowledges that all agreements relating to sales to Customers shall be between BrillKids and the Customer.

3.4. All determinations of Qualifying Links and whether a commission is payable will be made by The BrillKids Community and will be final and binding on both BrillKids and Affiliate. Prices for the products will be set solely by BrillKids in its discretion.

3.5. BrillKids Affiliates can earn commissions via PayPal, and commission is may be withdrawn or transferred once a minimum of US$50.00 has been earned by Affiliate.

3.6 Each Referral Sale will have a 30-day guarantee period before it is reflected in actual Earnings Reports - this is to ensure that the buyer does not file for a refund after BrillKids has already paid Affiliate.


4.1. Each party owns and shall retain all right, title and interest in its names, logos, trademarks, service marks, trade dress, copyrights and proprietary technology, including, without limitation, those names, logos, trademarks, service marks, trade dress, copyrights and proprietary technology currently used or that it may use or develop in the future.

4.4. Affiliate's use of BrillKids's name, logos, trademarks, service marks, and trade dress pursuant to Section 4.2 and 4.3 must be in a manner that is clearly less prominent than that of Affiliate's name, logos, trademarks, service marks, trade dress, products and/or site name.
