Trademarks - Please let Angelica know if you need any promotional materials (physical/digital) to help you promote your You (The Affiliate) link. Please DO NOT use images or logos from our website. We are happy to supply you with images and logos that you may use freely with proper licensing and permissions.
Offer Placement - You are free to promote your own web sites, but naturally any promotion that mentions The Vince and Soph Shop could be perceived by the public or the press as a joint effort. You should know that certain forms of advertising are always prohibited by The Vince and Soph Shop. 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 mailings to customers to promote The Vince and Soph Shop so long as the recipient is already a customer or 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 The Vince and Soph Shop so long as the news group specifically welcomes commercial messages. At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your web sites as independent from The Vince and Soph Shop. If it comes to our attention that you are spamming, we will consider that cause for immediate termination of this Agreement and your participation in the The Vince and Soph Shop You (The Affiliate) Program. Any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.
