Overview of our Policies
Our affiliate program policies are designed to protect our affiliates, the end users, and ourselves from the consequences of bad faith and unlawful activities. Activities such as spam, fraud, or false promises not only hurt the end users, but might lead to serious legal consequences from the Federal Trade Commission or other law enforcement agencies. To help our affiliates make money long term and avoid violations, we listed out some typical must-do’s and don’ts for our affiliates. While you don’t need to worry too much if you perform good faith and responsible affiliate marketing, you should definitely go through these in detail.
Please note the policies outlined in this document serve as a quick sample only. This is not the exclusive list by any means, but as examples of the sort of activities that are regulated. For full details of our policies and guidelines, please make sure you have thoroughly read through our Strikingly Affiliate Program Agreement. Violation of any of the terms of this Agreement will result in the termination of your participation in the affiliate program, and forfeiture of any outstanding payments earned during the violation.
