B. THE PROGRAM
Spigot will permit the Affiliate to participate in the Program, subject to compliance with the terms and conditions in this Agreement and in any policies or additional terms and conditions established by Spigot, from time to time, and incorporated by reference in this Agreement.
The Affiliate will be issued a unique username and password to access the Program Site, neither of which may be used by any person other than the Affiliate. Affiliate shall be solely responsible for ensuring the confidentiality of its username and password and for any actions undertaken with respect to the Program arising out of the use of such username and password.
The Affiliate may engage Sub-Affiliates to distribute Campaigns in accordance with the Program, provided that:
(a) the Affiliate has written approval from a Spigot Representative to contract Sub-Affiliates;
(b) a verifiable name, address and telephone number for each Sub-Affiliate is delivered to Spigot immediately upon request;

(d) at no time will the Affiliate engage a Sub-Affiliate who, in the opinion of Spigot is likely to bring the reputation or standing of Spigot into disrepute or is otherwise unsuitable.
(e) at no time will the Affiliate allow an approved Sub-Affiliate to have further sub-Sub-Affiliates unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Spigot.
Any breach by a Sub-Affiliate of the Sub-Affiliate Provisions will be deemed to be a breach of this Agreement by the Affiliate.
It is expressly agreed that the parties intend by this Agreement to establish a relationship between Spigot and the Affiliate, but that it is not the intention of either party to undertake a joint venture or to make the Affiliate (or any Sub-Affiliate) in any sense an agent, employee, or partner of Spigot. The parties expressly agree that they are independent contractors, and that this Agreement does not in any way create a partnership, nor have the parties granted to each other any right or authority to assume or create any obligation of responsibility, express or implied, on behalf of or in the name of the other, or to bind the other in any manner whatsoever.
It is further agreed that the Affiliate has no authority to create or assume in Spigot's name or on its behalf any obligation, express or implied, or to act or purport to act as its agent or representative for any purpose whatsoever, and the Affiliate shall not hold itself out as having any such authority.
Spigot may, in its sole discretion, confirm or otherwise verify or check, the truth and accuracy of any registration information provided by Affiliate and/or any of its Sub-Affiliates. If at any time Spigot, in its sole judgment and discretion, determines such registration information to be misleading, inaccurate or untruthful, Spigot may restrict, deny or terminate Affiliate's account, Affiliate's access and use of, and/or any benefits derived from Affiliate's participation in the Program; Spigot may also withhold payment of any commissions and/or other fees that may be or become due or payable to Affiliate.
Affiliate will be solely responsible for the development, operation, and maintenance of the Affiliate website and for all materials that appear on the Affiliate website. Such responsibilities include, but are not limited to, the technical operation of the Affiliate website and all related equipment; creating and posting product reviews, descriptions, and references on the Affiliate website and linking those descriptions to the Program Site; the accuracy and propriety of materials posted on the Affiliate website; ensuring that materials posted on the Affiliate website do not violate or infringe upon the rights of any third party and are not libelous or otherwise illegal. Spigot disclaims all liability and responsibility for such matters and Affiliate shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Spigot from and against any and all claims, actions, proceedings, costs, claims, damages and/or losses arising therefrom.
Other than as provided in this Section B, Affiliate may not sublease, rent, lease, sell, resell, outsource or service any Offer, and any attempt to do so shall be null and void.
Spigot's Policies, specifications, and/or recommendations with respect to Affiliate websites, email distribution lists and/or marketing channels used by Affiliate should not be construed as legal advice, or as sufficient guidelines to ensure that such websites, email distribution lists, and/or marketing channels comply with applicable law. Spigot does not represent or warrant that such Spigot Policies, specifications, and/or recommendations are legally compliant or appropriate. Spigot assumes no obligation and hereby disclaims any liability for Affiliate's use of and/or reliance upon any such Spigot Policies, specifications, and/or recommendations.
Spigot operates the Program and Spigot is not responsible or liable for the acts, omissions, agreements or promises of or by any Affiliate using the Spigot Program to enter into any arrangement or otherwise work with any other person or entity, including without limitation, any Sub-Affiliate.
The Affiliate shall not acquire any ownership rights to the Program, Campaigns and/or Program Site. The availability of the Program, Campaigns and Program Site does not constitute a waiver of any rights related thereto. No part of the Program or Program Site may be reproduced in any form or incorporated into any information retrieval system, electronic or mechanical. The Affiliate may not remove any proprietary notices, copyrights, trademarks, or labels contained on or within the Program or Program Site or any graphical representation thereof. The Affiliate may not use, copy, emulate, clone, rent, lease, sub-license, distribute, sell, modify, decompile, disassemble, reverse engineer or otherwise transfer rights to access and use the Program or Program Site content or any portion thereof to any third party. Spigot reserves any rights not explicitly granted in this Agreement.
Campaigns will be posted to the Program Site.
Spigot grants the Affiliate a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable right to download Campaigns from the Program Site and to publish the same, which must be done in accordance with this Agreement, the Spigot Policies, as amended from time to time, and the additional terms and conditions affixed to each of the said Campaigns.
The Affiliate agrees not to modify, alter, misrepresent or embellish the Campaign or any part of the Campaign including without limitation any text or images provided by or on behalf of Spigot in any way, directly or indirectly, without the express prior written consent of Spigot.
It is the Affiliate's responsibility to check the Program Site often and to ensure the Campaign or any part of the Campaign that the Affiliate publishes on the Affiliate's websites and in electronic mail correspondence matches what is posted on the Program Site, even if the Campaign or any part of the Campaign has been modified in the Program Site since the Affiliate initially downloaded the tracking link.
Spigot will pay to the Affiliate a commission (the "Commission"), calculated in accordance with the payment terms outlined in each Campaign posted by Spigot on the Program Site.
Spigot may, in its sole discretion and from time to time, elect to advance to the Affiliate part or all of the Commissions, but in no event will Spigot be obligated to do so.
The Affiliate acknowledges and agrees that payment of Commissions may be delayed where the Affiliate has not provided Spigot with current particulars in accordance with paragraph F.2 of this Agreement and that in no case will Spigot be liable to the Affiliate for any penalties, loss, costs or expenses directly or indirectly incurred by the Affiliate as the result of such delay.
In no circumstance will Spigot be obligated to pay by bank transfer/wire Commissions to an Affiliate unless and until the aggregate amount of the Commissions due and payable to that Affiliate exceeds One Thousand ($1000.00) US Dollars, or such greater amount established by Spigot, from time to time. Other forms of commission payment are available and up to discussion between Spigot and Affiliate.
Commissions due and payable by Spigot to an Affiliate will not accrue interest.
Payments to an Affiliate in accordance with this Section will be based upon the records kept by Spigot and reported in Spigot's online reporting system.
Payments to an Affiliate in accordance with this Section shall be made within thirty (30) days following the end of the month in which such Commissions were earned by Affiliate, unless a shorter timeframe is set forth in the Campaign, subject in all cases Section E.2 hereof.
Affiliate acknowledges and agrees that the Commissions to be paid, as outlined in the Campaign, are intended as user data base creation activities on behalf of Spigot. Any failure of the Affiliate to comply with the terms of the Campaign could result in the Campaign not constituting a user data base creation activity, and, accordingly may result in non-payment of Affiliate of the applicable Commission in the event of such failure.
If Spigot determines, in its sole discretion, that the Affiliate or Sub-Affiliate has engaged in any activity that Spigot considers to be fraudulent activity (including without limitation, as defined in Section E.3 below) or which might bring the reputation or standing of Spigot into disrepute either with the general public or potential clients of Spigot, or otherwise that the Affiliate or Sub-Affiliate has engaged in activities which might be considered fraudulent, Spigot may, but will not be obligated to: (a) suspend or terminate the Affiliate's membership in the Program, without notice; and (b) release to any third party, information relating to the identity and location of the Affiliate if required to do so in order to enforce these terms and conditions.
In the event of a suspension or termination in accordance with paragraph E.1 above, any Commission due and payable to the Affiliate in accordance with Section D at the time of suspension or termination will be deemed to be forfeited. In the event of a suspension or termination in accordance with paragraph E.1 above, any Commission already paid to the Affiliate in accordance with Section D at the time of suspension or termination with respect to activity constituting a breach of Section E.1 hereof will be deemed to be forfeit and Affiliate shall promptly (not to exceed five (5) days), return all such amounts to Spigot. Spigot reserves all rights and actions to recover such amounts and to seek damages from Affiliate arising out of a breach of paragraph E.1.
For the purposes of this Agreement, “fraudulent activity” includes but is in no way limited to:
(a) any activity which Spigot reasonably deems to have occurred in violation of the terms of this Agreement or the Affiliate Guidelines attached hereto as Exhibit A and hereby incorporated by reference (the “Affiliate Guidelines”)
(b) activity by the Affiliate or anyone for whom in law the Affiliate is responsible and/or its Sub-Affiliates, which is directly or indirectly intended to inflate the Commissions payable to the Affiliate;
(c) the generation of actions for which a Commission is otherwise payable other than by a mechanism approved by Spigot;
(d) activity by the Affiliate or anyone for whom in law the Affiliate is responsible and/or its Sub-Affiliates which is not in accordance with the Program; and
(e) activity which is determined by Spigot or the parties who have engaged Spigot to promote the Offers (hereinafter, the “Advertisers”), in their discretion, to be fraudulent.
- Spigot may at any time audit Affiliate and/or its Sub-Affiliates for compliance purposes. Affiliate agrees to provide Spigot with any reasonable information necessary to conduct an investigation into Affiliate's and its Sub-Affiliate’s compliance with law and this Agreement.

The obligation of the Affiliate to defend and indemnify as set out in this paragraph will survive termination of this Agreement for any reason and will not be otherwise limited by any other term or condition of this or any Agreement. Spigot may, at its election in its sole discretion, assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by Affiliate. Spigot may participate in the defense of all claims as to which it does not assume defense and control, and Affiliate shall not settle any such claim without Spigot's prior written consent.
H. DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
Spigot or its directors, may, from time to time, disclose to the Affiliate certain information relating to Spigot's business or to Spigot's Advertisers, customers, affiliates, subsidiaries, Affiliates, agents, or employees; business and marketing plans, strategies and methods which may not be standard industry practice or which are not generally known in the industry; or studies, charts, plans, tales or compilations of business and industrial information acquired or prepared by or on behalf of Spigot; or any data as found on the Program Site (all collectively referred to as the "Confidential Information"). The Affiliate acknowledges that Confidential Information will be provided at the sole discretion of Spigot, and nothing in this Agreement obligates Spigot, its directors, agents or employees to disclose or grant to the Affiliate access to any Confidential Information.
Unless expressly authorized in writing by Spigot, the Affiliate covenants and agrees:
(a) to use the Confidential Information solely for the purposes expressly contemplated in this Agreement; and
(b) that no Confidential Information will be disclosed to any third party, affiliate, subsidiary, Sub-Affiliate, agent, or employee of the Affiliate without the prior written consent of Spigot, which may be unreasonably and arbitrarily withheld.
The Affiliate acknowledges that Spigot remains the sole and exclusive owner of all right, title and interest in and to the Confidential Information. The Affiliate agrees that the Confidential Information will not be copied or otherwise reproduced without the express prior written consent of Spigot.
Upon termination of this Agreement, or otherwise on demand by Spigot, the Affiliate agrees that it will promptly deliver to Spigot all notes, data, tapes, reference items, sketches, drawings, memoranda, records, diskettes, electronic communications in any form and any other materials in any way relating to any of the Confidential Information in the possession of the Affiliate or any affiliate, subsidiary, Sub-Affiliate, agent, or employee of the Affiliate.
The Affiliate acknowledges and agrees that:
(a) the provisions of this Section and the Affiliate's agreement with the same are of the essence and constitute a material inducement to Spigot to enter into this Agreement;
(b) the provisions of this Section shall be construed independently of any other provision of this Agreement, and the existence of any claim or cause of action the Affiliate may have against Spigot, whether predicated on this Agreement or otherwise, shall not constitute a defense to the enforcement by Spigot of the provisions of this Section;
(c) that any breach of this Section would cause irreparable harm to Spigot for which damages might not be an adequate remedy, and the Affiliate therefore agrees that in the event of any such breach Spigot will be entitled to seek, in addition to any other right accruing to Spigot under this Agreement or otherwise in law or equity, injunctive relief against the Affiliate without the necessity of proving actual damages; and
(d) notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, this Section shall survive the termination of this Agreement, however caused.
- The Affiliate agrees to indemnify and save harmless Spigot against any and all loss, costs or expenses, inclusive of court costs and legal fees which Spigot may incur as the direct or indirect result of any unauthorized disclosure of the Confidential Information by the Affiliate or any person for whom the Affiliate is responsible, in law.
During the term of this Agreement and for a period of six (6) months thereafter, the Affiliate will not seek, in any way, to undermine the goodwill of Spigot, and in particular, the Affiliate will not, directly or indirectly: (1) solicit or entice or attempt to solicit or entice, work away from Spigot, including without limitation, with respect to any Advertisers; or (2) solicit or entice or attempt to solicit or entice any of the employees of Spigot to enter into employment service with the Affiliate or a competitor of Spigot.
Affiliate will not (i) copy, create derivative works of or modify the extensions and/or other Spigot Applications or any parts thereof for the purposes of competing directly with Spigot; (ii) modify, remove or interfere with the extensions; and (iii) attempt to disassemble, decompile, attempt to derive the source code of, or otherwise reverse engineer the extensions or any part thereof, in whole or in part, or permit, authorize or encourage any other person or entity to do so.
Liquidated Damages. If Affiliate breaches its Confidentiality obligations as listed above or any of the provisions in this Section, Affiliate shall pay Spigot $50,000 as liquidated damages. The parties agree that quantifying losses arising from Affiliate’s breach of Affiliate’s Confidentiality obligations as listed in this Section or any of the provisions in this Section is inherently difficult insofar as the breach may impact Spigot’s reputation and intellectual property rights, and further stipulate that the agreed upon sum is not a penalty, but rather a reasonable measure of damages, based upon the parties’ experience in the downloadable extension industry and given the nature of the losses that may result from such a breach.
J. DISCLAIMER AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Spigot disclaims all warranties, conditions, representations, indemnities and guarantees with respect to any matter, whether express or implied (including without limitation any warranty of profitability, satisfactory quality, merchantability, fitness for any particular purpose, title and non-infringement), including without limitation with respect to the Program, the Program Site, the Offers, and/or any monetary benefit that could be derived by Affiliate from its participation in the Program.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, Spigot additionally disclaims all obligations and liabilities on the part of Spigot and those for whom it is in law responsible for any damages, including, but not limited to, indirect, special, and consequential damages, attorneys' and experts' fees, and court costs (even if Spigot has been advised of the possibility of such damages, fees or costs), arising out of or in connection with this Agreement.
In no circumstance will Spigot be liable to the Affiliate and/or its Sub-Affiliates, and/or any third party (including, without limitation, any customers obtained through Affiliate's marketing efforts) for any consequential, indirect, special, punitive or incidental damages or lost profits of the Affiliate and/or its Sub-Affiliates or their successors or assigns (including without limitation claims for loss of goodwill, use of or reliance on the services provided hereunder, stoppage of other work or impairment of other assets) arising out of breach or failure of express or implied warranty, breach of contract, misrepresentation, negligence, strict liability in tort or otherwise. Without limiting the foregoing, Spigot will not be liable for any failure or delay resulting from any governmental action, fire, flood, insurrection, earthquake, power failure, riot, explosion, embargo, strikes whether legal or illegal, labor or material shortage, transportation interruption of any kind, work slowdown, actions or inaction of Affiliate or third parties, Affiliate's equipment or software and/or any third party equipment or any other condition affecting production or delivery in any manner beyond the control of Spigot.
Link Formats. Spigot will provide Affiliate with special hyperlinks or URLs which must be used in order for Spigot to track actions. Spigot will have no liability for any failure by Affiliate to properly implement such special link formats in any Offer placements and the failure to do so shall result in no Commission being payable with respect thereto.
Spigot may terminate this Agreement at any time. The Affiliate may terminate this Agreement, at any time, on forty-eight (48) hours Notice to Spigot.
Notwithstanding termination of this Agreement for any reason, the Affiliate covenants and agrees that it will continue to be bound by the terms and conditions set out in Sections D (as to Commissions earned prior to termination), E, G, H, I, J, K and L of this Agreement.
This Agreement, and any dispute arising from this Agreement or the Services, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Florida, without giving effect to principles of conflicts of law. Venue for all disputes arising out of or related to this Agreement shall be the courts located in Miami-Dade County, Florida, USA, and the parties hereby irrevocably consent to such jurisdiction.
Spigot may assign this Agreement without the Affiliate's prior consent. The Affiliate may not assign this Agreement without the express written consent of Spigot.
From time to time, Spigot may amend, supplement or replace this Agreement or the Spigot Policies in part or in whole, on Notice to the Affiliate of not less than five (5) business days. If within five (5) business days following Notice of such amendment, supplement or replacement the Affiliate has not terminated this Agreement, the Affiliate will be deemed to have consented to the same.
Any notice or other communication ("Notice") permitted or required by this Agreement will be in writing and given by personal delivery or transmitted by facsimile or electronic mail to the receiving party at the address provided to Spigot by Affiliate in its Spigot Program account. Any such Notice will be deemed to have been received on the date on which it was transmitted by facsimile or electronic mail or delivered.
No term or condition of this Agreement will be deemed waived and no breach excused, unless such waiver or consent excusing the breach is in writing and signed by both parties.
In the event that any term, covenant or condition of this Agreement is declared indefinite, invalid, illegal or unenforceable by a court having jurisdiction, then this Agreement with respect to the remaining terms, covenants or conditions will continue in force.
This Agreement will inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the respective successors, heirs and assigns of both Spigot and the Affiliate.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter of this agreement, supersedes any previous or contemporaneous representations, negotiations, understandings, and agreements, oral or written. If Spigot is required to agree to online terms and conditions in order to access the Affiliate's online interface, the terms of this Agreement shall supersede any online agreement entered into by Spigot, and the terms of such online agreement shall not apply.
