Affiliate program Agreement

This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to an individual's or entity's participation in the NextIQ.com Affiliates Program (the "Program").

As used in this Agreement, "we" means NextIQ.com , Inc., and "you" means the applicant. "Website" means a World Wide Website and, depending on the context, refers either to NextIQ.com 's Website located at the URL www.NextIQ.com , or to the Website that you will link to our Website (and which you will identify in your Program application). For purposes of this Agreement, “our Website” also includes any NextIQ Website operated by us other than www.NextIQ.com .

1. Enrollment In The Program
To begin the enrollment process, you will submit a complete Program application via our Website. We will evaluate your application in good faith and will notify you of your acceptance or rejection. We may reject your application if we determine (at our sole discretion) that your Website is unsuitable for the Program. Unsuitable Websites include those that:

* Promote violence;
* Promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age;
* Promote illegal activities or are intended to harass or defame anyone;
* Include "NextIQ" or variations or misspellings thereof in their domain names; or
* Otherwise violate our intellectual property rights or the intellectual property rights of others.

If we reject your application, you are welcome to reapply to the Program at any time. You should also note that if we accept your application and your Website is thereafter determined (at our sole discretion) to be unsuitable for the Program, we may terminate this Agreement immediately without prior notice.

2. Links On Your Website
Once you have been notified that your Website has been accepted into the Program, you may provide on your Website one or more of the following types of links to our Website:

* Product Links
* Category Links
* Search Box Link
* General Link To Our Website Home Page

We will provide you with guidelines and graphical artwork to use in linking to our home page. To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and commission fee accrual, we will provide you with special "tagged" link formats to be used in all links between your Website and our Website. You must ensure that each of the links between your Website and our Website properly utilizes such special link formats. Links to our Website placed on your Website pursuant to this Agreement and which properly utilize such special link formats are referred to as "Special Links." You will only earn commission fees with respect to activity on our Website occurring directly through Special Links. We will not be liable to you with respect to any failure by you to use Special Links, including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction of amounts which would otherwise be paid to you pursuant to this Agreement.

3. Restrictions and Prohibited Activity
You may not:

(a) Purchase or register search engine keywords, AdWords, search terms or other identifying terms or domain names that include the word "NextIQ" or any variations thereof for use in any search engine, portal, sponsored advertising service or other search or referral service. Specifically, this policy prohibits You from bidding on:


* Any form of our trademarks, "NextIQ", “NextIQ.com ” or any keyword string that includes these terms, for example, "next IQ business plan", "NextIQ coupons", "NextIQ and coupons", "NextIQ business plans", etc.;
* Variations or misspellings of our trademarks: for example "nextq", "nextiqi", "www.NextQ.com ", "Next_IQ", "NEXTI-IQ", "www.NextIQ", "ww.nexitq.com", "anextiq.com", "www.nexiq.com", "nexti.iq", "wwwNextIQ.com ", "nextiqcom", etc.; or
* Any form of our trademarks or variation or misspelling thereof in connection with foreign country or other domain extensions.

(b) Dilute, blur or tarnish the value of our trademarks, and/or products and services. (For example, you are not allowed to say that you offer better and/or more promotions, products and services than NextIQ.com .);

(c) Misrepresent NextIQ.com ’s brands including our URL, logos, trademarks and tradenames;

(d) Engage in indiscriminate or unsolicited commercial advertising emails;

(e) Cause or enable any sales to be made that are not in good faith, including, but not limited to, by means of any device, program, robot, Iframes, hidden frames or redirects;

(f) Establish or cause to be established any promotion that provides any rewards, points or compensation for sales, or that allows third parties to place Links to our Website or our Website content, without our prior written permission;

(g) Use any existing or future software products or services (including without limitation any computer programming code that is an add-on or bundled with any browser or other host application) that will replace, intercept, interfere, hinder, disrupt or otherwise alter in any manner the Web user's access, view or usage of, or other aspect of the Web user's experience at the Website of any affiliate of ours in a manner that causes or otherwise results in a different experience from what was otherwise intended by our affiliate; or

(h) Use any existing or future software products and services that will block, alter, direct, redirect, substitute, insert, append itself to, or otherwise intercept or interfere in any manner with any click through or other traffic-based transaction that originated from the Website of any affiliate of ours with the result of reducing any compensation or other payment earned by or owing to such affiliate.

In addition to the foregoing, you must also abide by the provisions of the rules set forth at the end of this agreement concerning Press Releases and Other Communications, Other Website Promotion, Using Our Trademarks and Paid Search Listings.

If we determine, in our sole discretion, that you have engaged in any of the foregoing activities or violated any of our rules, we may (without limiting any other rights or remedies available to us) withhold any referral fees otherwise payable to you under this Agreement and/or terminate this Agreement. If we are required to enforce any of the foregoing restrictions, you will be obligated to reimburse us for any attorneys’ fees reasonably incurred in connection therewith.

4. Order Processing
We will process product orders placed by customers who follow a Special Link from your Website to our Website. We reserve the right to reject orders that do not comply with any requirements that we periodically may establish. We will be responsible for all aspects of order processing and fulfillment. Among other things, we will prepare order forms; process payments, cancellations, and returns; and handle customer service. We will track sales made to customers who purchase products using Special Links from your Website to our Website and will make available to you reports summarizing this sales activity. The form, content, and frequency of the reports may vary from time to time at our discretion.

5. Commission Fees
We will pay you (in accordance with Sections 6 and 7 below) commission fees on certain Product sales to third parties. For a Product sale to be eligible to earn a commission fee, the customer must follow a Special Link from your Website to our Website, select and purchase the Product using our automated ordering system and remit full payment to us.

6. Commission Fee Schedule
Direct Commissions.

You will earn commission fees based on Qualifying Revenues according to commission percentage schedules established by us from time to time. "Qualifying Revenues" are revenues derived by us from our sales of products such as business plan, financials documents, consulting services or special E-books as a result of purchases made by visitors to our Website that come directly through a Special Link on your Website. “Qualifying Revenues” do not include taxes or service charges.

NextIQ.com pays commissions on a sliding scale. At the end of each month we will add all of your sales together for that month and arrive at your commission percentage for the month according to our commission percentage schedule, which is currently:

Total Sales/Month Commission Percentage

> Less than $500 = 30%
> $500 to $2000 = 31%
> $2000 to $5000 = 34%
> $5000 to $10,000 = 35%

Each time you refer a visitor to NextIQ.com and they complete a purchase, you earn commission fees on Qualifying Revenues related to that sale. If the visitor does not purchase immediately, but comes back within 30 days and purchases a product not in response to our own or another’s marketing activities, we still credit you with the sale.

7. Commission Fee Payment
We will pay you commission fees on a monthly basis. 30 days following the end of each calendar month, we will send you a check for the commission fees earned on your Qualifying Revenues during that month, less any taxes that we are required by law to withhold. However, if the commission fees payable to you for any month are less than $20.00 (for domestic affiliates) or $100.00 for (international affiliates), we will hold those commission fees until the total amount due is at least $20.00/$100.00 or (if earlier) until this Agreement is terminated. If a Product that generated a commission fee is returned by the customer, we will deduct the corresponding commission fee from your next monthly payment. If there is no subsequent payment, we will send you a bill for the commission fee.

8. Policies And Pricing
Customers who buy products through this Program will be deemed to be customers of NextIQ.com . Accordingly, all of our rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service, and product sales will apply to those customers. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. For example, we will determine the prices to be charged for products sold under this Program in accordance with our own pricing policies. Product prices and availability may vary from time to time. Because price changes may affect products that you already have listed on your Website, you may not include price information in your product descriptions. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to present accurate information, but we cannot guarantee the availability or price of any particular product.

9. Identifying Yourself As An Affiliate
We will make available to you a small graphic image that identifies your Website as a Program participant. You must display this logo or the phrase "In affiliation with NextIQ.com " somewhere on your Website. We may modify the text or graphic image of this notice from time to time. In addition, we encourage (but do not require) you to include a Special Link on your Website to our home page at www.NextIQ.com .

You may not make any press release with respect to this Agreement or your participation in the Program without our prior written consent, which may be given or withheld in our sole discretion. Please review our Rules Regarding Press Releases and Other Communications. In addition, you may not in any manner misrepresent or embellish the relationship between us and you, or express or imply any relationship or affiliation between us and you or any other person or entity except as expressly permitted by this Agreement (including by expressing or implying that NextIQ.com supports, sponsors, endorses or contributes money to any charity or other cause).

10. Limited License
You may not modify the graphic image or text, or any other of our images, in any way. We reserve all of our rights in the graphic image and text, any other images, our trade names and trademarks, and all other intellectual property rights. You agree to follow our Trademark Guidelines, as those guidelines may change from time to time. We may revoke your license at any time by giving you written notice.

In addition, we grant you a nonexclusive, non-sublicensable, worldwide right to reproduce and use all graphic images and other materials provided to you, solely for the purpose of creating Links connecting your Website to our Website and promoting our products for sale. These product images must be served by our Website and cannot be used in any form other than the form provided by us.

12. Resale And Special Incentive Restrictions
You may not purchase Products during sessions initiated through the Special Links on your Website for resale or commercial use of any kind. This includes orders for or on behalf of other customers. Such purchases may result (in our sole discretion) in the withholding of commission fees or the termination of this Agreement.

In addition, you may not: (a) directly or indirectly offer any person or entity any consideration or incentive (including, without limitation, payment of money (including any rebate), or granting of any discount or other benefit) for using Special Links on your Website to access our Website (e.g., by implementing any "rewards" program for persons or entities who use Special Links on your Website to access our Website). If we determine, in our sole discretion, that you have offered any person or entity any such consideration or incentive, we may (without limiting any other rights or remedies available to us) withhold any commission fees otherwise payable to you under this Agreement and/or terminate this Agreement.
