- Infringe on our or any other person's or entity's intellectual property, publicity, privacy or other rights.
- Violate any law, rule or regulation.
- Contain any content that is threatening, harassing, defamatory, obscene, harmful to minors, or contains nudity, pornography or sexually explicit materials.

LINKING TO OUR WEBSITE
Upon acceptance into the Program, links will be made available to you through the affiliate interface. Your acceptance in our program means you will agree to and abide by the following:
- You agree that you will only use linking code obtained from the affiliate interface without manipulation.
- All domains that use your affiliate link must be listed on your affiliate profile. You hereby agree that your Website will not in any way copy, resemble, or mirror the look and feel of our Website. You will also not use any means to create the impression that your Website is our Website or any part of our Website including, without limitation, framing of our Website in any manner. Cookie stuffing, pop-ups, false or misleading links are strictly prohibited. In addition, wherever possible, you will not attempt to mask the referring URL information (i.e. the page from where the click is originating).
- Using redirects to bounce a click off of a domain from which the click did not originate in order to give the appearance that it came from that domain is expressly prohibited and is a direct violation of the program terms.
- If you are found redirecting links to hide or manipulate their original source, your current and past commissions will be voided or your commission level will be set to 0%. This does not include using "out" redirects from the same domain where the affiliate link is placed.
If you are enrolled in our Program and participate in Pay Per Click advertising, you must adhere to our PPC guidelines as follows:
- You may not bid on any of our trademarked terms, including any variations or misspellings thereof for search or content based campaigns on Google, Bing, Yahoo or any other network.
- You may not use our trademark terms in sequence with any other keyword (e.g. ForYourParty.com Napkin Coupons).
- You may not use our trademarked terms in your ad title, ad copy, display name or as the display URL.
- You may not direct link to our website from any PPC ad or use redirects that yield the same result. Affiliates must be directed to an actual page on your website.
If you automate your PPC campaigns, the responsibility is yours to exclude our trademark terms from your program and we strongly suggest you add our trademarked terms as negative keywords. We have a strict no tolerance policy on PPC trademark bidding. We will not enter into a discussion about when the violation started and when it stopped; you will forfeit all commissions for a minimum of the past 30 days and your commission will be set to 0% without warning.
Trademarked Terms: ForYourParty.com; ForYourParty.com Napkins; ForYourParty.com Personalized Party accessories; ForYourParty.com Favors
If you are enrolled in our Program and your Website promotes coupon codes, you must adhere to our Coupon Guidelines as follows:
- You may ONLY advertise coupon codes that are provided to you through the affiliate program or network.
- You may NOT advertise coupon codes obtained from our non-affiliate advertising, customer e-mails, paid search or any other campaign.
- On click through, you must link directly to our website. Framing of our website is strictly prohibited.
You must not mislead customers into clicking on an offer or coupon that does not exist or practice similarly deceptive tactics that are generally accepted as "cookie stuffing." These include, but are not limited to:
- Using knowingly expired offers or presenting offers that do not exist or are not affiliate offers
- Making claims that a user must click on a link first to activate or receive an offer
- Presenting a button that claims to show all offers and sets the affiliate cookie in the background
- Technology that generates a click or sets the cookie from the action of copying a coupon code or through a pop-up
Additionally, if your website ranks on the first page of Google for terms related to our website or company name(s) combined the words coupon, coupons, coupon code, promo code, etc and/or your conversion rate exceeds 25%, you may be offered a lower commission than our standard rate to offset the reduced profitability of orders. The current rate is 3%.
Use of any of our trademarked terms as part of the domain or sub-domain for your website is strictly prohibited i.e. ForYourParty.com.website.com or www.ForYourParty.com-coupons.com
ADVERTISING & PUBLICITY
You shall not create, publish, distribute or print any written material that makes reference to our Program without first submitting such material to us and receiving our prior written consent. If you intend to promote our Program via e-mail campaigns, you must adhere to the following:
- You must abide by the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 (Public Law No. 108-187) with respect to our Program.
- E-mail must be sent on your behalf and must not imply that the e-mail is being sent on behalf of For Your Party.
- E-mails must first be submitted to us for approval prior to being sent or we must be sent a copy of the e-mail.
REVERSAL & COMMUNICATION POLICY
For Your Party takes pride in our very low reversal rate, which we attribute to open communication with our affiliates. However, we reserve the right to reverse orders due to order cancellations, duplicate tracking, returns, disputed charges and program violations as outlined in these terms and conditions. Additionally, if we ask you for clarification or more information on any orders or clicks that we suspect may be in violation of our terms and conditions, we expect that you will respond in a timely and honest manner. Below are violations of our communications policy:
- You are not forthcoming, intentionally vague or are found to be lying
- You are not responsive within a reasonable time period and after multiple attempts to contact by the information listed in your network profile.
- You cannot substantiate or validate the source of your traffic to our program with clear and demonstrable proof.
If any of the above apply, then we reserve the absolute right to reverse orders, set your commission to 0% or suspend you from the program for the period or orders in question. We know that many violations are a result of automated processes; however, it is incumbent upon each affiliate to ensure that they have the appropriate checks and balances in place to pro-actively address these issues and adhere to our program rules.

How does the For Your Party Affiliate Program work?
Once you are accepted as an Affiliate of ForYourParty.com, you can place links via banners, text links and other creative assets on your website. When your visitors click through to the For Your Party website via these links, that visitor is tracked until they place an order. When an order is placed by the visitor, it is associated with your website as the referring source and your affiliate account is credited for 10% of the entire product ordered. At the end of each month, the Affiliate Network will send you a check for the entire amount of revenue share you have earned in the previous month, once you have reached the minimum threshold. The more visitors you refer to ForYourParty.com and the more of those visitors that turn into FYP customers, the more revenue you make. Unlike many other websites, you get paid each time that customer places an order within 90 days, not just their first!
Are there any fees or costs associated with becoming an Affiliate of For Your Party?
No, there is not a fee to join the FYP Affiliate Program.
What commission levels does For Your Party offer?
