Be conscious of forum rules! If a forum owner or moderator complains that an affiliate has spammed,
the affiliate account may be permanently terminated after investigation.
- Content posted on free blog websites for the sole purpose of keyword spamming, or comments posted to legitimate blogs
that violate the comment policy of the blog owner.
- Solicitations posted to chat rooms, or to groups or individuals via Internet Relay Chat or "Instant Messaging" system.

or leaflets on private property or where prohibited by applicable rules, regulations, or laws.

- Account Termination: Upon the receipt of a credible complaint, the Amazon Canvas Affiliate Program manager may investigate the complaint,

Termination results in the immediate closure of the member and affiliate account, the loss of all referrals,
and the forfeiture of any unpaid money on account.
