2. LINKING TO OUR WEB SITE AND TRACKING:
Upon your acceptance into the Program we will provide you with a unique Affiliate Member ID code (the "Affiliate Member ID") which, when properly coupled with graphic and text link(s) we provide you, and when hosted on your web site, will permit your users to link to our web site and will allow us to track that users have been passed from your web site to ours. We will also provide you with a URL from which you may select the graphic and text link(s) of your choice, which you may then properly couple with your Affiliate Member ID and host on your web site. We shall track individual users who access our web site through your use of a hyper linked graphic or text link that is embedded with your Affiliate Member ID (each a "Referral") by loading an identifying token into each Referral's web browser by means of a cookie. We will be unable (and will have no obligation) to track Referrals who refuse the token, whose browsers do not support cookies, whose token is disrupted (such as if the cookie is edited or deleted), or who obtain our Products and Services using a browser that does not use the cookie containing the token. If we receive Referrals for the same user from multiple current HomeschoolingSupply.com Affiliate Partner Program Members ("Participants"), the first Participant from whom we receive a Referral will be credited with any applicable Affiliate Revenue (earned in accordance with the methods set forth in Section 6 of this Agreement) attributed to such user. You understand and agree that each cookie and token will automatically expire after a period of time following the Referral and the applicable session on our site and, consequently (i) that no Affiliate Revenue attributed to a specific user made following such expiration will be tracked to you (and we will have no obligation to track such Affiliate Revenue), and (ii) that you will not be entitled to receive any Affiliate Revenue (as set forth in Section 6 of this Agreement) with respect to Affiliate Revenue attributed to a specific user that was made following such expiration.
