Anyone accepted into the Company's affiliate program will be subject to additional terms and conditions under this section (to be provided in writing before an affiliate agreement is signed) and also includes the following:
28.1 A person may apply to be an affiliate, or may be invited to assume the role of an affiliate. Affiliates receive commissions when they refer a new client to the Company who then orders a product or service. Commissions under this condition are paid on a net 30 calendar day basis.

It is expected that in submitting referrals, the Client observes the Company policy regarding discrimination (Item 21.2), reputation (Item 26.6), refusal (Item 21.3) and exclusivity (Item 29)
The Client understands that his or her company stands to benefit from the Company's policy to enforce exclusivity. Under this policy:
29.1 The Company will not provide or accept funds for paid advertising campaigns of the Client's direct competitors within the same area and within a 12 mile radius of the area. In other words, two competing companies in the same niche will not be featured in our strategic traffic campaigns at the same time.
29.2 Two or more niche-related companies can purchase advertising services for different geographical areas, since targeting consumers residing in the same areas, or in the same demographic categories in this instance will not be allowed.
29.3 Specifically, Nebraska targeting for ABC Company and New Jersey targeting for another ABC Company is allowed. However, both ABC Companies cannot pay for targeting the same areas and demographics. This will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis) This will remain until the company with the winning bid decides to close their campaign, thereby making the campaign strategy and production slot available for another competitor.
29.4 Two companies can purchase ad campaigns for the same exact areas provided that they operate in two different niches or industries. Exclusivity is a special service that the Company offers to help clients stand out from their competitors. The rates and fees for this service are subject to change and may go up or down depending on promotional packages being offered and other services being added to the traffic campaign.
29.5 Exclusive traffic campaigns shall not be confused with the term, Lead Generation. It is not a practice of the Company to promise leads for traffic campaigns as that depends on off-page and off-line factors beyond the Company’s control. If a client needs leads for their business specifically, this must be expressed prior to the onset of traffic campaigns in order that the Company may provide alternative service options. The Company does have strategic partnerships, and affiliate entities that offer focused lead generation services. The prices vary and are not set by the Company herein. If alternative services are selected for the purpose of generating leads, the client will be bound to the terms of service issued by the lead provider. The Company will not be credited with the success, or liable for the failure of such lead generation campaigns as they are not issued directly from the Company.
29.5a Lead Generation for Agencies
The company utilizes proprietary software that provides data for corporations both large and small. Based on this data, the Company can provide agencies and trainees a calling list with specific objectives to educate or provide services for corporations/owners who want to achieve specific marketing objectives. This form of lead acquisition is not made available to the general public. The offer to supply such leads can be safeguarded or suspended without notice and without explanation at any time. This is exclusively for agencies and success coaches operating in the B2B space.
29.6 Monthly Website Maintenance Service
The monthly maintenance of the website fee will be billed exactly 30 days following the final payment of a service. If the client wishes to discontinue the maintenance fee payments, a written notice must be submitted via email or postal mail within 14 calendar days of the next billing due date. Cancellation of the maintenance fee automatically releases No Limits Today LLC of obligation to monitor, back up content and images, provide SSL Certification and update the website. It will remain as-is. This is also explained in the Terms of Service.
