"Site" means a World Wide Web site and, depending on the context, refers either to BellissimaBridalShoes.com's site, located at the URL www.BellissimaBridalShoes.com, or to any site that you will link to our site (and which you will identify in your BellissimaBridalShoes.com Affiliate Program application). "Products" mean items sold to consumers via the www.BellissimaBridalShoes.com site.
1. ENROLLMENT IN THE PROGRAM
To begin the enrollment process, you will submit a complete Affiliate Program Application. We will evaluate your application in good faith and will notify you of your acceptance or rejection. We may reject your application if we determine (in our sole discretion) that your site is unsuitable for the Program. Unsuitable sites may include, but are not limited to, those that include the following:

2. LINKS ON YOUR SITE
Once you have been notified that your site has been accepted into the Program, you may place any graphics, images or text obtained in connection with this Agreement ("Content") on your site.
To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and referral fee accrual, we will provide you with special "tagged" link formats to be used in all links between your site and our site. You must ensure that each of the links between your site and our site properly utilizes such tracking link formats. Links to our site placed on your site pursuant to this Agreement and which properly utilize such tracking link formats are referred to as "Tracking Links." You will earn referral fees only with respect to activity on our site occurring directly through Tracking Links. We will not be liable to you with respect to any failure by you to use Tracking Links, including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction of amounts that would otherwise be paid to you pursuant to this Agreement.
In addition, you acknowledge that we (and our corporate partners) may crawl or otherwise monitor your site for the purpose of ensuring the quality and reliability of Tracking Links on your site (for example, to detect links that are broken or non-functional, links to products that are out of stock or otherwise unavailable, etc.). Therefore, you agree that we and our corporate partners may take such actions and that you will not seek to block or otherwise interfere with such crawling or monitoring (and that we and our corporate affiliates may use technical means to overcome any methods used on your site to block or interfere with such crawling or monitoring).
