know that certain forms of advertising are always prohibited by Maxwell Designs. For
example, advertising commonly referred to as “spamming” is unacceptable to us and could
cause damage to our name. Other generally prohibited forms of advertising include the
use of unsolicited commercial email (UCE), postings to non-commercial newsgroups and
cross posting to multiple newsgroups at once. In addition, you may not advertise in any
way that effectively conceals or misrepresents your identity, your domain name, or your
return email address. You may use newsletters or emails to customers to promote Maxwell
Designs as long as the recipient is already a subscriber of your services or web site, and
recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings. Also, you may
post to newsgroups to promote Maxwell Designs as long as the news group specifically
welcomes commercial messages. You must clearly represent yourself and your website
as independent from Maxwell Designs at all times. If it comes to our attention that you are
spamming, we will consider that cause for immediate termination of the Agreement and
your participation in the Maxwell Designs Ambassador Program. Any pending balances
owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to unacceptable advertising or
