    The Affiliate shall not develop, maintain or operate the Affiliate website in any manner as to copy or resemble the appearance of the TCG website or as to create the impression that the Affiliate website is part of the TCG website or that the Affiliate website is owned, operated or maintained by TCG. The uniform resource locators (URLs), domain names, and other identifiers of the Affiliate website including, without limitation, website names, website descriptions, and meta information, shall not contain, in whole or in part, any trademarks, trade names, product names, company names, corporate names, or logos which are owned by TCG or its affiliated companies or which are derivatives thereof or confusingly similar thereto without the expression written permission of TCG.

TCG shall have the right to “spider” or “crawl” the Affiliate website or use any other program, device, script or tool to monitor or explore the Affiliate website in order to ensure the quality and reliability of the Links and the Affiliate’s compliance with the terms of this Agreement.

    TCG disclaims and shall have and assume no liability whatsoever arising from the ownership, development, operation, maintenance, and use of the Affiliate website.

    8. ORDER PROCESSING.

    TCG shall have the sole right and responsibility for processing and fulfilling product orders placed by Customers through the use of the Links as hereinafter provided. TCG’s responsibilities shall include order entry, payment processing, packing, shipping, cancellations, returns, and customer service. All such product orders and sales are at the price and subject to such terms and conditions as TCG shall determine in its sole discretion. TCG reserves the right to refuse an order for any reason and shall have no liability to the Affiliate for any order so refused.

    The parties acknowledge and agree that all users who visit the TCG website, including, without limitation, all Customers who place product orders through the use of the Links, are customers of TCG and are subject to the guidelines, policies, procedures, codes of conduct, and other terms and conditions imposed by TCG.

    9. CONSIDERATION.

    In consideration of the Affiliate establishing, placing, and maintaining the Links on the Affiliate website, and of all other obligations and agreements of the Affiliate hereunder, TCG shall pay to the Affiliate during the term hereof a fee based on the Net Sales Price for all products and services purchased by a Customer through the use of the Links in accordance with the following schedule:

    Total Sales

    Affiliate Fee All Physical Products 8% Digital Downloads and Media Access 5%

    Notwithstanding the foregoing, the fee payable to the Affiliate for purchases of digital downloads and all other forms of media for which access is provided electronically shall be five (5%) percent. Additionally, Affiliate purchases that include TCG discount or other special offer code will receive no fee on such purchases unless the offer is pre-approved for the Affiliate in writing by TCG, in which case the affiliate fee for approved discount promotions shall be five (5%) percent.

    Notwithstanding the foregoing, in order to qualify for a fee in excess of five (5%) percent, the Affiliate may not sell, directly or indirectly, or provide for the sale of, directly or indirectly, products or services which are substantially similar to those products and services offered for sale through use of the TCG website without the prior written approval of TCG.

    In order to qualify for the fee provided herein above, the Customer must have connected directly to the TCG website through the use of the Links created by an active affiliate account in the Link Builder and placed items in their shopping cart during the timed browsing session commencing with the Customer’s connection to the TCG website and terminating upon the expiration of the timed browsing session. The browsing session will remain active for four (4) hours after the last link is clicked on the TCG website. If the Customer leaves the TCG website and returns within this four (4) hour period, their browsing session will be reset and the Customer will still be deemed a referral of Affiliate. All items placed into the Customer’s shopping cart during an active affiliate browsing session will be credited to Affiliate if such items are purchased before the expiration of thirty (30) days from the date an item was placed in the shopping cart. If the Customer leaves the TCG website and returns to the TCG website during the active affiliate browsing session through the link of another TCG Affiliate, Partner, or other referral source tracked by TCG, the original active affiliate browsing session will end for Affiliate and no further sales will be credited to Affiliate for this Customer.

    The term “Net Sales Price” as used herein shall mean the gross revenue received by TCG from Customers for products and services purchased from TCG through the use of the Links as herein provided less sales taxes, duties, other taxes, shipping fees, handling fees, gift-wrapping charges, service charges, returns, and other charges incurred by the Customer.

    No fee shall be due to the Affiliate for the purchase of gift certificates, imprinting, membership fees or other non-merchandise sales.

    TCG will make payment to the Affiliate of all fees due, less any taxes required to be withheld under applicable law, within fourteen (14) days of the end of each calendar month. In the event that the fees due are less than Twenty-five ($25.00) Dollars, no payment shall be made that month and the balance of the fee due will be carried to the next calendar month. TCG may deduct and set-off from any fee due to the Affiliate any over-payment previously made by TCG to the Affiliate and any other amounts due from the Affiliate to TCG under this Agreement or otherwise.

    All checks issued by TCG to the Affiliate in payment of the fees due to the Affiliate hereunder shall be void if not cashed within sixty (60) days of the date of issue. All such checks shall be mailed by TCG to the Affiliate at the address provided by the Affiliate on the Affiliate Application. The Affiliate is solely responsible for keeping its address information as is on file with TCG current and accurate. In the event that a check issued by TCG to the Affiliate is returned to TCG or otherwise not received by the Affiliate due to inaccurate or non-current address information provided by the Affiliate to TCG or if the Affiliate fails to cash a check prior to such check becoming void, TCG shall have no obligation to provide a replacement check to the Affiliate or to otherwise pay to the Affiliate the fees represented by such check and the Affiliate shall be deemed to have waived its rights to receive such fees. In the event the Affiliate requests that TCG provide a replacement check to the Affiliate for a check that was returned to TCG or otherwise not received by the Affiliate due to inaccurate or non-current address information or for a check which has become void, TCG shall determine in its sole discretion whether to so provide a replacement check provided that TCG shall be under no obligation to do so.

    TCG will post information regarding sales generated as a result of product orders placed through the use of the Links in a password protected area of the TCG Affiliate Lobby which is available at http://affiliates.thechristianbookgroup.com
