Our Policy on Affiliate Links in our Forums:
In an effort to maintain the integrity and trustworthiness of our community, we have established a policy prohibiting the use of affiliate links within our forums. We understand that affiliate marketing can be a legitimate way of promoting products and earning revenue. However, it’s crucial to ensure that our forums remain a place for genuine discussion and exchange of ideas rather than promotional purposes. The use of such links can often lead to biased posts, compromising the unbiased information-sharing spirit of our community. Therefore, any post found to contain affiliate links will be removed, and the poster may face penalties including, but not limited to, warnings, suspension, or permanent exclusion from the forums. We appreciate your understanding and adherence to this policy.
Our Policy on Affiliate Links in Groups:
In the spirit of fostering collaboration and entrepreneurship within our Embrasure Space community, we permit the use of affiliate links in groups. An affiliate link is a URL that contains an affiliate’s ID or username. Affiliate ID or username are provided by the affiliate program. Affiliates are paid a commission for the sales they generate, which is tracked with the affiliate links.
However, the use of such links must not contradict the custom policies of the respective groups. It remains the responsibility of the user posting the affiliate link to ensure their post aligns with both the group’s custom policies and Embrasure Space’s Community Policies and Terms of Service. We encourage all members to be transparent about their use of affiliate links and remind them that non-compliance with this policy may lead to removal from the group or the Embrasure Space platform.
Disclosure of Affiliate Links in Groups:
For the purpose of transparency and trust within our Embrasure Space community, we require that all affiliate links shared in groups be clearly identified as such. When posting an affiliate link, it is mandatory that the user states explicitly in the post that the link provided is an affiliate link. This is to ensure that all members are aware that the user may earn a commission from their purchases made through that link. We believe in creating a community that is based on openness and mutual understanding, hence the importance of this full disclosure. Non-compliance with this policy may lead to penalties, including possible removal from the group or the Embrasure Space platform.
Use of Affiliate Links in User Activity Feeds:
Embrasure Space also allows the use of affiliate links in user activity feeds, under certain conditions. The purpose of this policy is to maintain transparency and honesty in our community while offering our users an opportunity to share valuable resources and earn commission.
When sharing an affiliate link in the activity feed, the shared products or services must be relevant and beneficial to the Embrasure Space community. Any form of spamming or excessive posting of affiliate links is strictly prohibited and may result in immediate suspension or termination of the user’s account.
Non-Disclosure Affiliate Link Policy in User Activity Feeds
Embrasure Space acknowledges that in certain circumstances, users may prefer not to disclose their affiliate links in their activity feed. To accommodate this, we are implementing a Non-Disclosure Affiliate Link Policy.
Despite not requiring a disclosure, it remains essential for the shared products or services to be valuable, relevant, and beneficial to the Embrasure Space community. We will not tolerate any form of spamming, excessive posting of affiliate links, or any other practices that may disrupt the user experience on our platform.
To ensure the integrity of our platform and the safety of our users, all non-disclosed affiliate links will be subject to scrutiny and approval by our team. This is to verify that these links do not pose any security risk and are in line with our community standards.
Failure to comply with these terms may result in penalties, including but not limited to removal from the Embrasure Space platform. It is every user’s responsibility to adhere to this policy.
Prohibition of Link-Shortening Services for Affiliate links:
The use of link-shortening services to conceal an affiliate link in groups and forums is strictly prohibited within Embrasure Space. This is to preserve the transparency and integrity of our community. It is crucial that every link’s destination is immediately clear to our users. Using a link-shortening service to hide an affiliate link disguises the nature of the link, violating our commitment to openness and mutual understanding.
Any attempt to circumvent this policy by employing such services will be considered a breach of our rules. Non-compliance will result in sanctions, ranging from warnings to permanent removal from our groups, forums, and potentially the Embrasure Space platform itself. We implore all users to adhere to this policy and maintain the trust that forms the core of our vibrant community.
