6. Online Ads, Keywords, Pay Per Click Advertising, and Domain Names Involving THE EDGE’S Product Names, Ingredients, Trademarked Names, and Variations Thereof.
6.1 You shall not purchase or register keywords, Pay Per Click advertising, AdWords, search terms, domain names, or other identifying terms that include the word “THE EDGE” or THE EDGE’s product names, ingredients, trademarked names, certain variations and misspellings thereof for use in any search engine, portal, sponsored advertising service or other search or referral service. Any affiliate doing this will be suspended and commissions will not be paid on this type of activity. If you have purchased or attempt to purchase or register keywords, Pay Per Click advertising, AdWords, search terms, domain names, or other identifying terms that include the word “THE EDGE” or THE EDGE’s product names, ingredients, trademarked names, certain variations and misspellings thereof, you will need to cease this activity immediately.
6.2 You may not, under any circumstances, purchase online ads via search engines or otherwise that show www.TheEdgeUp.ca as the url with your affiliate link behind it – this is impersonating our company and will result in account suspension. Online ads (i.e. Google Ads and similar) that clearly state your own url are allowed as long as the viewer is clear that your url is the source of the ad, do not use “www.TheEdgeUp.ca” in the ad.
6.3 Ads that are in violation are subject to flagging & removal by Google under the terms of their trademark infringement rules and may jeopardize your account standing with Google. THE EDGE is not liable for any action that Google decides to take against you or your account as a result of these violations, including but not limited to, Google account termination.
7. Using Content From THEEDGE.CA
As an EDGE affiliate, you are permitted to use content in good faith from our www.TheEdgeUp.ca website (photos, testimonials, recipes, etc.) as long as it is for purposes of the affiliate program. However, you may not “copy” the look of our site (design or code), replicate our site, or otherwise use the same or similar design and layout of our site as your own. Your site needs to clearly be identified by the viewer as being yours, the viewer should never have any confusion as to whether they are on the official THE EDGE corporate page (owned and operated by THE EDGE) or not. In other words – your site should have a look & feel (design elements, layout, colors, etc.) that is distinctly different from that of www.TheEdgeUp.ca, but you may use our content on your site to promote the affiliate program.
