PARTICIPATION IN THE AFFILIATE PROGRAM
To participate in the Affiliate Program, you must submit your application via the affiliate registration form on the CJS GALLERY website (the Site). All affiliate registrations are reviewed by us before making a decision regarding acceptance of the application. If we determine that your application is not suitable for our Affiliate Program, it may be rejected for any reason.
As a CJS GALLERY Affiliate, you agree that:
It is your sole responsibility to provide us with correct information regarding your account, and it is your responsibility to keep this information up to date. Such information includes, but is not limited to: contact details, payment details, tariff and tax information, all URLs of websites on which CJS GALLERY is promoted, promotional means and practices and any other details we request. CJS GALLERY reserves the right to request any additional information about each site on which CJS GALLERY is promoted and any additional information about the practices used to promote CJS GALLERY on such sites. If, for any reason, you fail to provide the requested data, or if the data is not accurate, it may result in your exclusion from the Affiliate Program, temporary suspension or termination of your Affiliate account, and loss of Commissions.
The Affiliate must act in good faith and refer reputable customers. Reputable customers are account owners who have provided valid contact information, activated accounts that do not exceed limitations – as stated in the CJS GALLERY Terms of Service, and who are not flagged for fraud risk. An active account indicates those new users who have created an account and have not canceled it in more than 45 (forty-five) days.

You should not use any marketing practices that may attract customers who do not have a good reputation.

You must not use self-referencing methods, you cannot click on your own affiliate links and/or banners. Same IP addresses that have been used to log in to the Affiliate panel and to hire will be considered as self-referencing and no exceptions will be made. Additionally, the use of VPN services to make a purchase through the affiliate link will also be considered a violation. Violations may result in the loss of all rewards accrued in the program.

If after the affiliate program, violations continue, knowing that CJS GALLERY would not have entered into an affiliate agreement with the partner, CJS GALLERY reserves the right to terminate the collaboration immediately and/or withhold payment for as long as the program was used.
Only promotional materials approved by CJS GALLERY may be used on its affiliated website to promote CJS GALLERY. Approved materials are those related to the elements offered on your Affiliate Panel. Approved promotional materials may contain CJS GALLERY trademarks, service marks, logos and slogans for you to display on your affiliated website. By signing this agreement, we grant you a non-exclusive, limited, non-transferable license to access, download and display approved promotional materials on your website for the sole purpose of promoting the products operated, controlled and owned by CJS GALLERY.
If, by decision of either party, the Affiliate Agreement is terminated, your non-exclusive, limited, non-transferable license to access, download and display approved CJS GALLERY promotional material will be immediately and automatically withdrawn and terminated.
