Affiliation Agreement

Your consent to the terms of this Agreement with Cygnus Software Ltd. ("Cygnus") is signified by checking the box entitled "I have read and agreed to the Affiliation Agreement" in our affiliate sign-up form.

Definitions
Site: www.FetchBook.Info.
Affiliate: A person or entity that has received an email confirmation from Cygnus, as determined by Cygnus at its sole discretion, that its website is included in the Program, and such website is linked to the Site in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
Program: Cygnus Affiliate Program.
Qualified Visitor: A human visitor who visits the Site directly from the Affiliate's website through a link, which is in accordance with Section 5 of this Agreement, provided the Affiliate's website is confirmed by Cygnus as included in the Program. A Qualified Visitor does not include the Affiliate itself or any person acting on its behalf. A visitor is uniquely identified by an IP address, which means that any number of visitors using the same IP address will be deemed and counted as one Qualified Visitor.
Qualified Visit: A visit to the Site by a Qualified Visitor, starting when the Qualified Visitor first shows activity on the Site and ending after 4 hours in which there was no activity from the Qualified Visitor. For the purposes of this section, activity shall mean any http request the visitor's browser issues to the Site.
Shop Link: A link in the "price comparison results" page on the Site that leads to a store's website.
Trademarks: FetchBook, all names containing FetchBook and all other trademarks, service marks and logos displayed on the Site.

Referral Fees
Cygnus will pay a referral fee of $0.50 to an Affiliate for each Qualified Visit, during which a Qualified Visitor, originating from such Affiliate's website, compared the price of one or more books in the Site, and then clicked-through one or more Shop Links.

No matter how many books a Qualified Visitor compares and no matter how many Shop Links a Qualified Visitor clicks during one Qualified Visit, the Affiliate will receive only a Referral Fee in the amount of $0.50 for such visit.

If a Qualified Visitor is referred from two or more different Affiliates during one Qualified Visit, only the Affiliate which referred such Qualified Visitor first will receive the respective Referral Fees.

Cygnus will pay this Referral Fee regardless of whether or not the Qualified Visitor actually buys the books.

Payment terms are subject to sections 3, 4 and 5 below, and under no circumstances will Cygnus pay in any calendar month fees that result in the aggregate payments by Cygnus to allof its Affiliates in connection with the Program to exceed $2000 during such month (in which case Cygnus shall allocate all Referral Fees pro-rata among all Affiliates on the basis of the fees to which each Affiliate is entitled during the calendar quarter including such month).

Tracking; Payment
Cygnus tracks, by the 10th of every month, how many Qualified Visitors were referred from the Affiliate's website (excluding visitors who disable the operation of Cygnus' tracking device) and calculates the Referral Fees to which the Affiliate is entitled. Payment is sent via checks, after the end of each calendar quarter, provided that the balance is at a minimum of $75. If the balance does not meet the minimum $75 requirement, it will be carried over to the next quarter, without bearing any interest or fines. An Affiliate that has breached any of the terms of this Agreement, will not receive any payment whatsoever.

It is the Affiliate's sole responsibility to comply with any tax laws that apply to the Referral Fees, and Affiliate consents, to the extent required by any applicable law and regulations, that Cygnus may provide information regarding Affiliate's fees to any government agency.
