Please also note that you may not purchase products during sessions initiated through the links on your site for your own use, for resale or commercial use of any kind. This includes orders for customers or on behalf of customers or orders for products to be used by you or your friends, relatives, or associates in any manner. The reason behind this policy is that the Harshrutu Enterprises Affiliate Program is an advertising program rather than a discount program. Our goal is to have our affiliates refer new customers to us in return for referral fees. Affiliates are not eligible for referral fees when they place orders themselves, or ask people they know to routinely place orders through their affiliate links so they can earn referral fees. If you are found in violation of these policies, then Harshrutu Enterprises has the right to terminate your registration, as well as revoke all payments linked to your account, unless you can show that the purchases were genuine.
For Paid Search Ads through Google AdWords campaigns or of other search engines, Affiliates cannot send users directly to the Harshrutu Enterprises Site through keyword bidding or other paid search activities. However, if your Paid Search Ads, without using any Harshrutu Enterprises trademarks or variations and misspelling of such trademarks, send users to your own website and then your website displays affiliate links to Harshrutu Enterprises Site, you may earn referral fees for eligible purchases made by users who click through your Paid Search Ads to your website and then click through to the Harshrutu Enterprises Site. You shall not include Harshrutu Enterprises domain name (www.Harshrutu Enterprises.com) as Display URL or Destination / Landing Page URL in the ad copies of your AdWords campaigns. Any affiliate found / identified by us (we have systems in place to identify) directing users / traffic to Harshrutu Enterprises Site directly through Paid Search Ads will be penalised.
