the Affiliate Program (the “Program”). “We,” “us,” or “our” means Derma-nu and
Partner Website. “You” or “your” means the applicant. A “site” means a website.
“Partner Site” means the e-commerce/retail partner using the Derma-nu affiliate
tracking software. “Your site” means any site(s), any software application(s)
and any Mobile Application (as defined hereinafter) that you link to the
partner site. "Advertising Fees" means commissions earned for a

1. Description of the Program
The purpose of the Program is to permit you to advertise
Products on your site and to earn advertising fees OR commissions for
Qualifying Purchases (defined in Section 7) made by your end users. A “Product”
is any item sold on the Partner Website, other than any products that are
explicitly defined as excluded products here (collectively, “Excluded
Products”). Product may also include certain services, if any, expressly
included on the Affiliate Program Commissions Schedule. In order to facilitate
your advertisement of Products, we may make available to you data, images,
text, link formats, widgets, links, and other linking tools, and other
information in connection with the Program ("Content"). Content
specifically excludes any data, images, text, or other information or content
relating to products offered on any site other than the Partner Site.
To begin the enrollment process, you must submit a complete
and accurate Program application. You must identify your site in your
application. We will evaluate your application and notify you of its acceptance
or rejection. We may reject your application in our sole discretion including
if we determine that your site is unsuitable. Unsuitable sites include those
(a) promote or contain sexually explicit materials;
(b) promote violence or contain violent materials;
(c) promote or contain libelous or defamatory materials;
(d) promote discrimination, or employ discriminatory
practices, based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual
orientation, or age;
(e) promote or undertake illegal activities;
(f) include any trademark of Polished Gentleman, its Partner
Sites or its affiliates, or a variant or misspelling of a trademark of Derma-nu,
its Partner Sites or its affiliates, in any domain name, subdomain name, or in
any username, group name, or other identifier on any social networking site; or
(g) otherwise violate intellectual property rights.
If we reject your application, you are welcome to reapply at
any time. However, if we accept your application and we later determine that
your site is unsuitable, we may terminate this Operating Agreement at any time
in our sole discretion.
You will ensure that the information in your Program
application and otherwise associated with your account, including your email
address and other contact information and identification of your site, is at
all times complete, accurate, and up-to-date. We may send notifications (if
any), approvals (if any), and other communications relating to the Program and
this Operating Agreement to the email address then-currently associated with
your Program account. You will be deemed to have received all notifications,
approvals, and other communications sent to that email address, even if the
email address associated with your account is no longer current.
3. Links on Your Site
After you have been notified that you have been accepted
into the Program, you may display Special Links on your site. “Special Links”
are links to the Partner Site that you place on your site in accordance with
this Operating Agreement, that properly utilize the special “tagged” link
formats we provide, and that comply with the Affiliate Program Linking Requirements
Special Links permit accurate tracking, reporting, and accrual of advertising
You may earn advertising fees only as described in Section 7
and only with respect to activity on the Partner Site occurring directly
through Special Links. We will have no obligation to pay you advertising fees
if you fail to properly format the links on your site to the Partner Site as
Special Links, including to the extent that such failure may result in any
reduction of advertising fee amounts that would otherwise be paid to you under
this Operating Agreement.
If you wish to include Special Links in a software
application designed and intended for use on mobile phones, tablets, or other
handheld devices (“Mobile Application”), you must include the name of the
Mobile Application and the link to your Mobile Application in your application
to the Program. The suitability and other requirements of this Section 3 and
the Mobile Application Policy will apply to Mobile Applications. We will
evaluate your application and notify you of its acceptance or rejection. A
Mobile Application that is accepted will be an "Approved Mobile
Application" for the purposes of this Agreement.
Special Links displayed in Approved Mobile Applications may
be served by the Affiliate API or Partner API(“Affiliate API”) or the Product
Advertising API, including any Special Links displayed within an integrated web
browser and must use the Affiliate ID we have assigned to you expressly for
your Approved Mobile Applications.

including applicable service tax or goods and services tax or other tax or levy
that you may be required to remit in connection with such services for which

making the invoices available to Partner Site;
depositing applicable taxes on a periodic basis; and

taxes recovered as well as any interest and penalties imposed on Partner Site

Account Number), the rate of tax withholding applicable to you will vary.
Further, if you are a non-resident, you agree to provide necessary
documentation, as may be required, for Partner Site and Derma-nu to satisfy any
reporting or any obligations with respect to the advertising fee payable to
you. If we deduct or withhold taxes from advertising fees payable to you, we
will issue to you the relevant withholding tax certificate, if required under
the applicable law, evidencing deposit of the taxes with the relevant
regulatory authorities (for non-resident this is subject to relevant documents
made available). If you provide us with a nil or reduced withholding tax
certificate, we will apply such nil or reduced tax rate as the applicable
withholding tax rate on advertising fees payable to you. You hereby agree that
you will not pursue any claim against P or any of its affiliates, and hereby
waive all such claims you may now or in the future have, in respect of any

requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users,
but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to
investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
