The Publisher shall not make any representations, warranties or other statements concerning the Advertisers, the Advertiser’s site or the Advertiser’s products beyond what is reasonable and accurate. The Publisher understands that the Advertiser owns and shall retain all rights to its names, logos, trademarks, service marks and copyrights.

These rights give Advertisers the ability to restrict Publisher’s use of their names, logos, trademarks, service marks and copyrights. This Agreement gives the Publisher limited, non-exclusive rights to Advertiser links and/or other promotional materials provided through the Network.

Publisher understands and agrees that in connection with providing the Services, Katalys may share Publisher’s first and last name, company name, or other identifying information with Advertisers.

5. Use of Links and Promotional Materials.

The Publisher will link their site to areas within the Advertiser’s site using special URLs obtained through the Network. The Publisher may use as many links or as much Network content or marketing materials as required.

Use of links and marketing content is non-transferable. The Publisher may not allow links or Network content to be used by other sites or URLs outside of the Publisher’s account. The Publisher may not alter the links in any way, aside from any alteration that is conducted through the sub-tracking add-on and campaigns.

Katalys may terminate Advertiser links at any time. If such an action occurs, the Publisher must remove the terminated links and corresponding promotional materials from the Publisher’s approved site.

6. Content and Link Placement.

Katalys marketing materials and/or links cannot be placed on sites that contain the following content (or links to pages with such content): Any pornography, nudity, or any other sexual or adult material. Any content that violates or infringes in any way upon the statutory, common law, or proprietary rights of others, including but not limited to, copyrights, trademark rights, patents, or any other third party intellectual property, contract, privacy, or publicity rights. Any gambling, hate propaganda, or material that encourages or promotes illegal activity or violence. Any material that promotes or utilizes software or services designed to deliver unsolicited e–mail. Any misrepresentations or material that is threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, obscene, profane, indecent, or otherwise objectionable, offensive, or harmful. Any material that violates any local, state, or national law or regulation. Any other material that Katalys, in its sole discretion, determines to be inappropriate.

Links provided will be placed on pages that use only the English language, where the majority of traffic is generated from online users who reside in the United States, and which are generally seen by users age 18 and older.

Links and/or content from Katalys must be placed on web pages that can be freely accessed by Katalys without having to login or supply a password.

Links cannot be placed in misleading formats or used in fraudulent methods, including but not limited to any program or device that would otherwise manipulate traffic or the accuracy of advertiser campaigns.

In the event that advertiser links are desired to be used in a non-web page format that is not viewable through the Internet, such as through newspapers, television ads, or other media, prior approval from Katalys is required.

Publishers may not place Links to an Advertiser’s Website or Website content in third party newsgroups, message boards, blogs, unsolicited email or other types of spam, link farms, counters, chat rooms, or guest books.

Publishers using IRC channels, instant messages or similar Internet resources must designate their program through an email within 48 hours, as special, requiring manual review and acceptance by Katalys and/or the Advertiser.

No Publisher can place links to or promote an Advertiser’s Website or their own Affiliate Website or Craigslist.

Transactions generated from the same IP address or from the same individual may be considered as fraudulent transactions and will not receive compensation.

Content provided through the Katalys network cannot be swapped with advertising links found through other networks for the same or similar products or services. Publishers are granted licensing rights to use the content provided through the Katalys network only in conjunction with the advertising links provided through the Network. Failure to comply can result in the immediate termination of the Publisher’s account with Katalys.

Publishers that participate in search engine marketing may not link directly to the Advertiser’s website using affiliate links unless the Advertiser’s individual terms and conditions specifically state that direct linking is allowed.

Unless exempted by special request and documented in writing, Publishers are not permitted to utilize pop-ups, pop-unders, interstitials, or any other advertising unit which opens a new browser window or interrupts or covers normal site content.

Traffic submitted to Katalys’ campaign must be provided transparently and the referring URL must be an accurate, complete and unmasked URL from the referring site. Traffic that does not meet this requirement may be considered fraudulent.

7. Payments.

Payments are sent to the Publisher either by ACH payment, Check, wire transfer, or PayPal. Payments issued to Publishers located outside of the United States will be subject to a $20 service fee. There are no processing fees for checks or ACH payments made in the USA, however, any fees charged to Katalys for PayPal payments or Wire transfers are deducted from the Publishers account, from future payments.

Publisher will be paid based on the payment terms set forth by each Advertiser as displayed within the Network. Katalys shall make payments to Publisher for all commissions earned after receiving payment from Advertisers. Katalys cannot guarantee payments on behalf of any Advertiser and Publisher understands and agrees that Katalys shall not be liable for payment unless and until payment has been made by Advertisers.

Publishers must ensure they have submitted accurate and complete payment information within their Katalys affiliate portal, as well as an applicable, relevant tax form to receive commission payments. If Publishers have not supplied accurate, updated payment information and tax documentation to us by the 20th of the following month in which they are eligible for commissions, Katalys reserves the right to postpone any commission payments until the following month’s pay period, or whichever applicable pay period when such information is provided.

In the event that payments are reversed from the Advertiser for whatever reason, the Publisher understands that the existing balance will be credited back to Katalys, even if those sales are not related to the exact Advertiser reversing the sales. For example, if Katalys has already paid the Publisher on “ABC” sales, and if advertiser “XYZ” must reverse the sales, Katalys will credit back to Katalys from the Publisher’s existing balance of all sales. Katalys also holds the right to credit back from any other account the Publisher has with Katalys if so required. A credit is defined as a reversal of ACH payment, a stop payment on a check, wire reversal, and/or charge backs applied to the entire Katalys Publisher Account. Payment for Commissions is ultimately dependent upon Advertisers providing such funds to Katalys, and therefore, you agree that Katalys shall only be liable to you for Commissions to the extent that Katalys has received such funds from the Advertisers. You hereby release Katalys from any claim for Commissions if Katalys has not received such funds from the Clients.

It is the Publisher’s responsibility to maintain accurate payment information, which can be updated through electronic mail to [email protected]. Failure to maintain accurate payment information may result in delay of payment.

All payments made to Publishers require a minimum balance prior to payment based on payment type. $500 minimum for ACH and $5,000 for wires. In the event that you do not have at least the minimum in earnings, your payment will be sent the following payment cycle once the minimum earnings threshold is met.

Reporting of sales or leads in the client interface ( will show approved transactions for the Publisher’s account. However, these approvals are pending final verification from auditing processes, any possible chargebacks due to any Advertiser mistakes or possible fraudulent transactions, and final payment from the Advertiser. Payments to Publishers are considered 100% approved and final once payment is sent to the Publisher.

Publishers understand that any chargebacks of sales, regardless of the reason, can be credited back to Katalys against the existing Publisher account, regardless if the sales are from another Advertiser, as long as they are for the same Publisher account or Publisher entity (if more than one account is on file with Katalys).

8. Privacy Policy.

Each Publisher site must contain a privacy policy that is viewable by the online community. The privacy policy should comply with all regulations and laws and disclose whether and how any user information is captured, and also how it is used as well as an affiliate disclosure per the FTC regulations.

9. Support Services.

Katalys will provide all Publishers with support services, such as, but not limited to: Online support through the Katalys Ticket System, messaging support, phone support and general email support services during regular business hours, except holidays.

It is understood that any communications will be responded to within 72 hours, however, there may be times in which such communications may take longer. In the event that the Publisher does not hear back from a request, it is the Publisher’s responsibility to contact the support team at [email protected] or through the ticket system service provided through

The support team provided to the Publishers of the Katalys Affiliate Network will do their best to answer any and all inquiries to the best of their knowledge, but the Katalys owners, shareholders, and chairpersons do not guarantee that all information provided by customer service is 100% accurate and may at times be subject to change, adjustment, or additional inquiries. In the event that the support team has misinformed the Publisher due to incorrect information provided to the support team by the advertiser and/or a mistake on their part, the support team will do their best to clarify any and all mistakes within a reasonable amount of time.

Publishers are not allowed to recruit services, employ, or otherwise contract employees, or former employees of Katalys, for any service. This applies to both active Publishers of Katalys and non-active Publishers, regardless of existing or current status.

10. Maintaining Content.

The Publisher is responsible for making sure that all information promoting any of the products provided by Katalys is accurate. Depending on the format in which the Publisher has chosen to display Katalys content, Publishers may be required to manually maintain their content on a regular basis. The content maintenance requirements vary per format used and are as follows:

HTML Links and Banner Scripts – Publishers are responsible for accessing links on a weekly basis and whenever a notice regarding product updates is sent by Katalys.

Spreadsheet Downloads – Publishers are responsible for downloading the most recent information on a weekly basis and whenever a notice regarding product updates is sent by Katalys.

XML Downloads – Publishers are responsible for downloading XML files to their database whenever content needs to be updated.

Web Services – Once the Web Services feed is established, content will update automatically.

JavaScript Code – Once the script is copied, content will update automatically.

Templates – All information hosted on the Katalys server is updated automatically. Any customization that is done by the design team of Katalys or by the publisher directly is thereafter, once live, the responsibility of the publisher to maintain and keep accurate.

Katalys will periodically monitor Publisher sites to assure accuracy in the use of all content provided through the various content formats. Publishers who are contacted by Katalys for content usage adjustments must abide by all requests within 48 hours of notification or risk having their links expired for the advertiser to which the issue pertains or their account suspended. Katalys reserves the right to adjust this grace period without notice.

11. Approved URL(s).

If Katalys finds that a Publisher signed up for the Network using a site that they are not affiliated with, Katalys reserves the right to terminate the account or refuse payment.

Only approved sites will be accepted into the Network. Approvals are based on a variety of factors, including but not limited to, website content and URL(s). None of the URL(s) submitted or any of the website pages that reside under the registered URL can contain any of the content mentioned in the Content and Link Placement sections of this Agreement.

12. Approval Process for Specific Advertisers.

Once a Publisher is approved for the Katalys network, they are granted access to a variety of tools and services, and the opportunity to apply for a number of Advertiser affiliate programs. Approval for Katalys does not guarantee approval for the Advertiser programs offered. Within the client interface, Publishers must select and apply for each individual program, and abide by the terms and conditions for selected Advertisers. An email regarding the Application status will be sent to the Publisher within several business days.

The terms and conditions provided by Advertisers for their individual programs represented in the Network are in addition to the terms and conditions of the Katalys Affiliate Network (this Agreement), and a violation of either the Advertiser’s terms and conditions or the Katalys Affiliate Network terms and conditions can result in the termination of the publisher’s account and the removal of any pending payments.

13. Downtime.

Katalys will provide services to allow for 100% uptime for both link activity and content delivery. Katalys cannot be held liable for any link downtime due to hardware or software related issues, or in the event that the landing pages or links provided by the Advertisers are down. The Katalys technical staff will, however, work diligently to resolve any issues in the event that any downtime occurs and will coordinate such efforts, if need be, with the Advertiser.

Though Katalys regularly monitors all links for programs on a scheduled basis, it is strongly recommended that Publishers occasionally check their links once live on their website. Once a link is live on the Publisher’s website, it is the Publisher’s responsibility to inform the Katalys support team at [email protected] within 24 hours of any link problems.

14. Link Tracking Software.

In the event that the Publisher chooses to use a 3rd party tool to check links or otherwise verify links that have been provided by Katalys, it is the Publisher’s responsibility to notify the Katalys support team at [email protected] in the event that such checking may alter reporting results.

Failure to report the usage of such tracking that may alter the reporting for Katalys may result in the termination of the account based on the auditing procedures that are done, which in part focus on Publisher accounts that generate a large number of reported click-throughs with no validation of sales.

16. Email Marketing.

Publishers who promote advertisers via e-mail must adhere to all applicable legislation and regulations governing e-mail marketing in the jurisdictions that the Publisher targets. Katalys advertising links and banners may not be promoted through unsolicited e–mail in any form including, but not limited to, stand-alone e-mail (text or HTML) or newsletters. Spamming is not allowed and all Publishers must comply with the CAN SPAM Act of 2003. Any Publisher found to be generating applications/requests for services and/or sales through unsolicited e-mails will not be paid for those applications/requests/sales. E-mails must contain accurate sender information and subject lines, include functioning Internet-based opt-out mechanism, and not be false or misleading.

Email Campaigns. For all email campaigns, Affiliate must request the “Suppression List” from a Katalys account manager. Affiliate shall filter its email list by removing any entries appearing on the Suppression List and will only send emails to the remaining addresses on its email list. Katalys will provide an opt-out method in all Links, however, if any opt-out requests come directly to Affiliate, Affiliate shall immediately forward them to Katalys at [email protected]. Affiliate’s emails containing the Links may not include any content other than the Links, except as required by applicable law. Affiliate agrees that failure to download the Suppression List and remove all emails from the database before mailing may result in Commission withholdings, removal or suspension from all or part of the Affiliate Program, possible legal action and any other rights or remedies available to Katalys pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise. Affiliate further agrees that it will not mail or market to any suppression files generated through the Katalys network, and that doing so may result in Commission withholdings, removal or suspension from the Affiliate Program, possible legal action and any other rights or remedies available to Katalys pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise.

17. Chargebacks/ Refunds.

In the event that the Advertiser or Katalys has reported duplicates or other inaccuracies in the reporting of sales or leads, these may be reversed in the Publisher’s account. Chargebacks and/or refunds can occur at any time and can be applied at any time to the Publisher’s account.

If such an event occurs, it is up to the Publisher to contact the support team at [email protected] to find out the reason behind such occurrences.

In the event that such chargebacks occur for sales that have already been paid in full to the publisher, Katalys reserves the right to reverse the credit on future sales or pending payments to the Publisher.

In the event that it is determined that such chargebacks are due in part to fraudulent activity or a violation of the terms and conditions of either the Advertiser’s program or the Katalys Affiliate Network, future payments and/or credits to the Publisher’s account will be reversed and the account will be immediately deactivated.

18. Unauthorized Telemarketing / Offline Marketing.

In order for a Publisher to receive credit for applications/requests and/or sales that are generated from their site, the consumer must personally complete the application/action and agree to the terms and conditions that are set forth by the Advertiser for the product/service for which they are applying/requesting/purchasing. No one other than the consumer can complete an application for that consumer.

Publishers cannot market advertising materials or links provided by Katalys through telemarketing, where their representative/telemarketer collects a consumer’s personal and/or private information for the purpose of using that information to fill out an application, request a service or purchase goods using the Publisher’s advertising link(s).

Any source other than online exposure and approved URL(s), such as printed applications for specific credit card or financial products, requests for services, or the purchase of goods cannot be used for the purpose of having the consumer complete the application/request/purchase so that someone other than the consumer can submit the information online at a later time.

No specific product name or Advertiser name may be used within the text or images for any print advertising campaign.

Publishers who choose to market materials or links through other marketing sources that are not approved by Katalys may result in non–paid applications and/or termination of the account.

19. Fraud / Suspicious Activity.

All accounts are regularly monitored for fraudulent transactions and suspicious activity. In the event that your account is flagged for fraud or suspicious activity by the Katalys Internal Fraud and Suspicious Activity Department (FIFASA), any payment due will be held for a maximum of 120 days while the investigation process is underway, which may involve a multitude of verifications of the publisher account and cross-referencing of data supplied by the merchant. Fraud or suspicious activity in regards to transactions can be caused by a number of instances, such as, but not limited to, breaking the Terms and Conditions of an Affiliate program, using non-approved software applications, using non-approved domains, providing false information during registration, or providing false information once approved.

Katalys holds the right to reduce or completely remove any approved transactions or payments in the event that the Publisher has created a violation to produce such sales or if the publisher is unable to produce evidence to contradict the violation.

Once an action or actions have been determined by the FIFASA Department to be fraudulent or otherwise in violation of the Advertiser’s terms and conditions or the Katalys Publisher Terms and Agreements Policy, the Publisher’s account will be permanently deactivated and banned from applying again to the Katalys network, and any credits shown on the account will be 100% reversed.

In the event your account is deactivated, and you thereafter open another account with Katalys, or have other accounts with Katalys, using the same or similar information, Katalys reserves the right to deactivate all your related accounts and remove any approved transactions or future applicable payments.

In the event you are deactivated from a specific advertiser program from another network, or removed from that network entirely, and then come through Katalys to promote programs that you were previously removed from promoting, Katalys holds the right to deactivate your entire account, and remove any pending future payments on transactions, for all programs that you violated such actions.

20. Capturing User Information.

Publishers are not allowed to alter the sub-tracking code or otherwise use software or any means designed to capture personal identifiable information of online visitors that would then be viewable to Katalys.

Publishers are not allowed to request that visitors to their site complete any form that may be hosted on the Publisher’s website or a third-party service, through which the user’s information will be redirected or otherwise used to generate a lead or sale for the Advertiser program.

All leads and sales for Advertiser programs must be completed on the Advertiser website or through the link that is provided from Katalys. Any alterations to misdirect or otherwise pass information to the application process of the Advertiser form will result in the immediate termination of the Publisher account, and all credits will be reversed.

21. Termination.

The Network retains the right in its sole discretion to terminate the Publisher’s account at any time, and for any reason that the Network sees fit or for no reason. Publishers are not bound to Network usage and can close their account with 72 hours’ notice to Katalys for standard link usage. The right to terminate does not apply to any special agreements, such as Insertion Orders, Bonus Offers, or any other written agreement between the Publisher and Katalys, which may include special pricing and/or placements, that said agreements have including specific terms that apply during the time period of that agreement.

Any pending payments that are due to the Publisher will be paid thereafter until current payment balance owed to the Publisher is made in full and it is determined that no fraudulent activity or chargebacks occurred per the transactions generated by the Publisher’s account. In the event it is determined there was fraudulent activity on the Publisher’s account, this will void any and all current or future payments owed to the Publisher.

Publisher understands that once an account is closed, all advertising links will be expired, all Advertiser relationships will be closed, and previous historical information such as sales and click-thru data may not be available.

In the event that the Publisher wishes to re-open their account, they will be required to complete a new registration. In the event that the account is deactivated due to suspicious or fraudulent activity, payments will be held during investigation.

20. Mutual Indemnification.

Affiliate hereby agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Katalys and its Clients and their respective subsidiaries, affiliates, partners and licensors, directors, officers, employees, owners and agents against any and all claims, actions, demands, liabilities, losses, damages, judgments, settlements, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs) based on (i) any failure or breach of this Agreement, including any representation, warranty, covenant, restriction or obligation made by Affiliate herein, (ii) any misuse by Affiliate, or by a party under the reasonable control of Affiliate or obtaining access through Affiliate, of the Links, Offers or Katalys or Client intellectual property, or (iii) any claim related to your Media, including but not limited to, the content contained on such Media (except for the Links), your breaches of this Agreement which result in claims made by Advertisers as against Katalys.

26. Publisher Referral Program.

The Publisher will earn a standard 3% of any profit generated to the network from Publishers they refer that are approved for the Katalys Network and programs within the Network. For example, if the Publisher that was referred generates $1,000 in network profit in a month, then $30 will go towards the Publisher account that referred the new client. This payment amount will last for the first 12 months after the new referred Publisher has joined the Network.

In the event that a promotional tier level program is offered, the Publisher tier earnings referral rate will be based on the promotional details per the period in which the offer is provided.

There is no minimum amount to be earned, though payments are not issued to Publishers unless there is a minimum of $500 in earned referrals. Payments are made during the next payment period for the Publisher.

The maximum referral amount, regardless of any promotional material sent out, is up to 10% of the Katalys profit.

At times our accounting may need to make adjustments to payouts, such as, but not limited to incorrect amounts appearing for payouts for referred Publishers, 10% thresholds being exceeded, fraud, etc. In the event such an occurrence takes place, we will notify the Publisher prior to sending out payments.

Earnings are only paid out on approved sales or leads. In the event that the merchant reverses the sales, due to returns or other adjustments, the referral earnings will be adjusted accordingly.

It is the Publisher’s responsibility to provide the proper link to referred Publishers. Those Publishers must register with the link to allow for proper tracking of revenue back to the original Publisher who recruited the additional Publishers.

In the event it is determined that the Publisher account is fraudulent or has otherwise not abided by the terms and conditions of Katalys or merchant accounts, in addition to the Publisher account being terminated, all earned referral revenue will also be forfeited.
