4.1) In order to receive commissions for referring customers to Reco, the Affiliate must engage in proper advertising. Affiliates found to be engaging in improper advertising shall have their agreement terminated and their affiliate status revoked. Reco shall be the sole and absolute arbiter of what constitutes proper advertising.
4.2) A non-exhaustive list of examples of improper advertising shall include but not be limited to:
4.2.1) the forwarding of any urls direct to (this includes misspells of the above trademark domain); and

4.4) Reco reserves the right to conclude that you have engaged in an improper method of advertising according to our standards, at our sole discretion. We may come to such a conclusion even if it is based upon our opinion or mere suspicion or belief and is without any duty on Reco to prove that our opinion or suspicion is well-founded; and even if our opinion is proven not to be well-founded or if other subscription box companies have not deemed it to be an improper method of advertising.
4.5) Any Affiliate found to be adopting improper methods of advertising for the purpose of the Scheme shall be deemed to have been in breach of this Agreement and shall have their Affiliate status revoked. Such an Affiliate will therefore immediately cease in being an Affiliate of Reco.
4.6) Any sales that have been generated through improper advertising will not qualify for commission or credit from Reco.
4.7) Any Affiliate found to be utilising these or any other improper methods of advertising may be required to pay back any such commission that has been paid by Reco to them. If Reco elects not to enforce this right it shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any other rights that it may have under this Agreement.
