Our Rights & Responsibilities
We have the right to monitor your referral activities at any time to determine if you are following the terms and conditions of this Agreement. We may notify you of any changes to your site and social sharing platforms that we feel should be made, or to make sure that your links to our website are appropriate and to notify you of any changes that we feel should be made.

Tracking of Affiliate Sales
Life Skills Instructor uses a third party to track all affiliate sales. The third party is the SendOwl.com affiliate platform. Kindly review the SendOwl's terms and conditions.
You will create a password so that you may enter SendOwl secure affiliate account interface. From their site you will be able to receive your reports that will describe our calculation of the commissions due to you.
Life Skills Instructor uses the third party payment processor, PayPal, to process sales purchases and affiliate payments. All affiliates must have an active account with PayPal in order to receive commission payments. Commission payments will not be made via other methods. All applicable record of payments will be displayed to your affiliate account when a referrer (someone referred by you) makes a purchase by clicking on your affiliate link which takes them to our website. Once on our site, if purchase is successful, you will be credited the appropriate commission. Commission payments are paid EVERY TWO WEEKS.
You are free to promote your own web sites, but naturally any promotion that mentions Life Skills Instructor could be perceived by the public or the press as a joint effort. You should know that certain forms of advertising are always prohibited by Life Skills Instructor. For example, advertising commonly referred to as "spamming" is unacceptable to us and could cause damage to our name. Other generally prohibited forms of advertising include the use of unsolicited commercial email (UCE), postings to non-commercial newsgroups and cross-posting to multiple newsgroups at once. In addition, you may not advertise in any way that effectively conceals or misrepresents your identity, your domain name, or your return email address.
You may use mailings to customers to promote Life Skills Instructor so long as the recipient is already a customer or subscriber of your services or web site, and recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings. Also, you may post to newsgroups to promote Life Skills Instructor so long as the news group specifically welcomes commercial messages. At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your web sites as independent from Life Skills Instructor. If it comes to our attention that you are spamming, we will consider that cause for immediate termination of this Agreement and your participation in the Life Skills Instructor Referral Program. Any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.
Affiliates that among other keywords or exclusively bid in their Pay-Per-Click campaigns on keywords such as LifeSkillsInstructor.com, Life Skills For Young Adults, Life Skills For YA, www.LifeSkillsInstructor, www.LifeSkillsInstructor.net, and/or any misspellings or similar alterations of these – be it separately or in combination with other keywords – and do not direct the traffic from such campaigns to their own website prior to re-directing it to ours, will be considered trademark violators, and will be banned from LifeSkillsInstructor Referral Program. We will do everything possible to contact the affiliate prior to the ban. However, we reserve the right to expel any trademark violator from our affiliate program without prior notice, and on the first occurrence of such PPC bidding behavior.
