|AFFILIATE MEMBER AGREEMENT
MOVIEPOSTER.COM AFFILIATE PROGRAM AGREEMENT
This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to an individual or entity's participation in the Movieposter.com Affiliates Program (the "Program"). As used in this Agreement, "we" means Movieposter.com, and "you" means the applicant. "Site" means a World Wide Web site and, depending on the context, refers either to Movieposter.com's site or to the site that you will link to our site.
1.Enrollment in the Program
To enroll in the Program you will submit a complete Program application via our site. We will evaluate your application and will notify you of your acceptance or rejection. If your site is not yet functioning ("live"), we will reevaluate it periodically. Upon acceptance of your enrollment, we reserve the right to cancel your application at our discretion if we determine that your site is unsuitable (as described in section 10) for the Program.
If we reject your application, you are encouraged to reapply to the Program at any time after your site has been modified.
2.Links on Your Site
The following methods may be used to link your site to Movieposter.com:
· General Link: You may provide a general link on your site to our home page, which will be provided by Movieposter.com.
· Customized Banner: Any banner created by your site for the purpose of linking to Movieposter.com must be approved by Movieposter.com and used at our discretion.
We will process product orders placed by customers who follow special links from your site to the Movieposter.com site. We reserve the right to reject orders that do not comply with any requirements that we may establish periodically. We will be responsible for all aspects of order processing and fulfillment. Among other things, we will prepare order forms, process payments, cancellations, and returns, and handle customer service. We will track sales made to customers who purchase products using special links from your site to ours, and will send you reports summarizing this sales activity. To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and fee accrual, you must ensure that the special links between your site and our site are properly formatted; proper coding on the affiliate's site is the responsibility solely of the affiliate.
We will pay you referral fees on all product sales. For a product sale to generate a referral fee, the customer must first follow a special link (specified by Movieposter.com) from your site to the Movieposter.com site. After going through this link, the customer must purchase a product(s), accept delivery, and make the full payment to us. After a visitor accesses our site through yours, a "cookie" will be set which will identify that user when they access the Movieposter.com site regardless of whether they came back through your site or not. The cookie will persist indefinitely with your affiliate ID number, unless a) another site overwrites the cookie with its own affiliate ID number, b) a purchase is completed or c) the cookie expires or is erased due to changes made on the user's computer. The sale of any listed Movieposter.com product is entitled to earn referral fees - these products are referred to as "Qualifying Products."
You will earn referral fees in US dollars based on the sale price and type of Qualifying Products based on the product price - schedules set forth by Movieposter.com. The current sale prices of Qualifying Products are listed on our site; the costs exclude shipping, handling, and taxes.
The current fee schedule is:
· 8% of the sale price for sales of each Promotional Qualifying Product added to the customer's order.
· 8% of the sale price for sales of each Regular Qualifying Product added to the customer's order.
· 4% of the sale price for sales of each Product that is part of a Rare Section added to the customer's order
Referral fees will be paid on a monthly basis. If the fees payable to you for any calendar month are less than $50.00,
we will hold those fees until the total amount due is at least $50.00 or until this Agreement is
terminated. Commissions will be withheld for a minimum of sixty days, but no more than ninety days, after each sale to ensure delivery has been made, products have not been returned, and the order is not fraudulent. If the customer returns a product, which has generated a referral fee, we will deduct the fee from your next payment. If you are owed less than the amount being deducted and the agreement is ended, we will send you a bill for the fee.

Customers purchasing products through this Program will be deemed customers of Movieposter.com exclusively.
