The maintenance and the updating of your site will be your responsibility. We may monitor your site as we feel necessary to make sure that it is up-to-date and to notify you of any changes that we feel should enhance your performance.
It is entirely your responsibility to follow all applicable intellectual property and other laws that pertain to your site. You must have express permission to use any person's copyrighted material, whether it be a writing, an image, or any other copyrightable work.

III. CANDID TEA RIGHTS & OBLIGATIONS
We have the right to monitor your site at any time to determine if you are following the terms and conditions of this Agreement. We may notify you of any changes to your site that we feel should be made, or to make sure that your links to our web site are appropriate and to notify you further of any changes that we feel should be made. If you do not make the changes to your site that we feel are necessary, we reserve the right to terminate your participation in the Candid Tea Brand Advocate Program.

Your continued participation in Candid Tea Brand Advocate Program following the posting of the change notice or new Agreement on our site will indicate your agreement to the changes.
V. PROMOTION RESTRICTIONS
You are free to promote your own web sites, but naturally any promotion that mentions Candid Tea could be perceived by the public or the press as a joint effort. You should know that certain forms of advertising are always prohibited by Candid Tea. For example, advertising commonly referred to as "spamming" is unacceptable to us and could cause damage to our name. Other generally prohibited forms of advertising include the use of unsolicited commercial email (UCE), postings to non-commercial newsgroups and cross-posting to multiple newsgroups at once. In addition, you may not advertise in any way that effectively conceals or misrepresents your identity, your domain name, or your return email address. You may use mailings to customers to promote Candid Tea so long as the recipient is already a customer or subscriber of your services or web site, and recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings. Also, you may post to newsgroups to promote Candid Tea so long as the news group specifically welcomes commercial messages. At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your web sites as independent from Candid Tea. If it comes to our attention that you are spamming, we will consider that cause for immediate termination of this Agreement and your participation in our Brand Advocate Program. Any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.
