- In order for You to be eligible for commission for a
customer, a customer that You or one of your sub-affiliates
refer to Us must remain active as a customer of TERAPOWER for
at least thirty (30) from the date he or she pays for his or her
first order for TERAPOWER service. If the customer terminates

5. Commission Payment.
5.1. Commissions will be paid only directly to your PayPal account that you provided at registration. You may change
this preference within the affiliate administration area. TERAPOWER shall not be liable for any loss or damage sustained as the
result of any dealings with or otherwise arising out of disputes
with PayPal, Inc.
5.2. There are no minimum or maximum Affiliate commission payments,
however You must have at least Fifty USDollars (u$s 50.00) of commissions
payable to You in a given month for Us to pay You for that month. If
Your commissions payable are less than Fifty USDollars (u$s 50.00) in a
given month, We will carry over Your commissions into the next month
and subsequent months until commissions payable to You equal or
exceed Fifty USDollars (u$s 50.00). TERAPOWER, in its sole discretion,
reserves the right to modify the terms of this commission payment
method or schedule.
5.3. Commissions shall be paid in United States Dollars (USD). No
interest shall be accrued or payable upon Affiliate commission

month and carried over from earlier months, if applicable,
provided that the balance in Your commission account is at least
Fifty USDollars (u$s 50.00).
5.5. In the event that any customer that You or one of your
sub-affiliates send to Us issues a chargeback for which We are
charged, You will not earn any commission for that customer. If We
have already paid You a commission for that customer, then We will
debit Your commission account by the amount of commission we paid to
You for that customer. You understand and agree that Our debiting
Your account for chargebacks could result in Your commission account
having a negative balance. In the event that Your commission account
has a negative balance, You will not receive any further commission
payments until Your commission account has a positive balance of at
least Fifty USDollars (u$s 50.00).

firstname.lastname@example.org In Your message to Us, please include a
complete and accurate copy of the message that You consider to be
spam, along with full message headers and routing information for
e-mail, a message board provided by a Web site or an online service,
Usenet, interactive chat message, or instant message service, as the
case may be.
7.5. Definition of Spam.
Unsolicited commercial e-mail and electronic messages are
colloquially referred to as “spam.”Other common names for spam
include “spam e-mail,”“junk e-mail,”“bulk e-mail,”“direct
e-mail,”and “mass e-mail.”Spam is the electronic equivalent of the
direct mail you receive in your postal mailbox frequently.
In its most general terms, and as used in this NO-SPAM Policy
(the “Policy”), spam is:
- a commercial e-mail message or other electronic message,
including, but not limited to, messages that are:
- posted to an electronic mailing list (other than an
“opt-in”e-mail list as described below),
- posted on an online bulletin board system or Web-based
message board system or “guest book”,

Pager, Yahoo! Instant Messenger, or AOL Instant Messenger),
- sent through e-mail or another Internet means of
communication when the message’s ultimate destination is a
facsimile (“fax”) machine, cellular or wireless telephone, or
- a commercial e-mail message or other electronic message that
is addressed to one or more recipients with whom You do not have
a preexisting business or personal relationship,
- a commercial e-mail message or other electronic message that
is sent to a mailing list of addresses that You purchased or
that were otherwise distributed, or any list of e-mail addresses
whose owners did not sign up for Your specific mailing list,

is not sent at the request of, or with the express consent of,
- a commercial e-mail message or other electronic message that
is sent to a recipient who has opted out of receiving further
commercial electronic messages from You, or
- a commercial e-mail message or other electronic message that
contains forged headers, compromised mail server relays, or
false contact information.
For purposes of this Policy, spam also includes any e-mail or
other electronic message that is sent in violation of any applicable
Federal, state, or local law regulating unsolicited commercial
e-mail, unsolicited fax transmissions, or any other type of
unsolicited commercial electronic message, regardless of whether
that message fits the definition of “spam”provided above. For
purposes of this Policy, all the terms and conditions of this
No-Spam Policy shall apply to any online solicitations You may make
to sell TERAPOWER’s products and services.
7.6. “Opt-in”E-mail Lists.
Please note: messages sent to “opt-in”e-mail lists are not spam,
for purposes of this Policy, provided that those messages meet all
of the following criteria:
- the messages are sent to an “opt-in”e-mail list in which ALL
subscribers have VOLUNTARILY agreed to receive announcements and
advertisements about products and services;
- the messages STRICTLY COMPLY with ALL the requirements and
regulations of the “opt-in”e-mail list; and
- upon request of any subscriber to the “opt-in”e-mail list,
You immediately stop sending that subscriber any e-mail
regarding Your products and services.
If You choose to use an “opt-in”e-mail list, please be aware that
TERAPOWER will consider ANY violation of the requirements or
regulations of such any third party provider of software or services
for such a list to be a violation of this NO SPAM Policy.
7.7. Zero Tolerance for Spam.
TERAPOWER will not tolerate any spamming by any of its
Affiliates. This prohibition of spam extends to the sending of
unsolicited mass mailings from another service, which in any way
implicates the use of TERAPOWER’s services whether or not the
message actually originated from our network.
Violation of this NO-SPAM policy will result in TERAPOWER
taking one or more of the following actions:
- A warning via e-mail or telephone, or
- Termination of this Agreement and forfeiture of any unpaid
commissions otherwise payable to You.
TERAPOWER reserves the right to take all legal and technical
steps available to
prevent unsolicited bulk e-mail or other unauthorized e-mail from
being sent from
or transmitted through the TERAPOWER Network.

against the sender, under various federal, state, and local laws and
regulations, including the federal CAN-SPAM Act of 2003.
