2. DESCRIPTION OF THE PROGRAM
000WEBHOST.COM grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable limited license to use the Affiliate Program in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth herein. The Affiliate Program allows you to provide a platform for advertising 000WEBHOST.COM via your "Web Site" or "Publishing Location" (such as an electronic newsletter or blog), thereby driving traffic to 000WEBHOST.COM's Web Site or Web Site content, whereby you may earn a "Referral Point" if a person or entity that is not you (a "Visitor") uses a 000WEBHOST.COM product or service actively after being referred to 000WEBHOST.COM's Web Site or Web Site content from an internet hyperlink (a "Link") contained on your Web Site or Publishing Location. After being referred to 000WEBHOST.COM's Web Site or Web Site content from a Link contained on your Web Site or Publishing Location, Visitors have forty-five (45) days to signup in order for you to receive Referral Points. Please note that you will only receive a Referral Point for referrals completed through your Web Site or Publishing Location’s Link; subsequent signups by the same Visitor (by accessing 000WEBHOST.COM’s Web Site directly) will not be awarded. Additionally, should the Visitor click on another Web Site or Publishing Location's Link that is not controlled by you, or return to the 000WEBHOST.COM Web Site via another source-coded advertising Link during the initial forty-five (45) days, your Link will be overwritten and you will not receive a Referral Point for that Visitor.
