8.1. You are free to promote your own web sites, but
naturally any promotion that mentions NoriLights.com could be perceived by the
public or the press as a joint effort. You should know that certain forms of
advertising are always prohibited by NoriLights.com. For example, advertising
commonly referred to as "spamming" is unacceptable to us and could
cause damage to our name and/or search engine rankings. Other generally
prohibited forms of advertising include the use of unsolicited commercial email
(UCE), copying and pasting text from posts, etc. In addition, you may not advertise
in any way that effectively conceals or misrepresents your identity, your domain
name, or your return email address.
You may use mailings to customers to promote NoriLights.com so long as the
recipient is already a customer or subscriber of your services or web site, and
recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings. Also, you
may post to newsgroups to promote NoriLights.com so long as the news group
specifically welcomes commercial messages. At all times, you must clearly represent
yourself and your web sites as independent from NoriLights.com. If it comes to our
attention that you are spamming, we will consider that cause for immediate
termination of this Agreement and your participation in the NoriLights.com
Affiliate Program. Any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your
account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.

alterations of these – be it separately or in combination with other keywords –
and do not direct the traffic from such campaigns to their own website prior to
re-directing it to ours, will be considered trademark violators, and will be
banned from Nori Lights’s Affiliate Program. We will do everything possible to
contact the affiliate prior to the ban. However, we reserve the right to expel
any trademark violator from our affiliate program without prior notice, and on
the first occurrence of such PPC bidding behavior.
