We expected 3rd party service providers to deliver on agreed services and support facilities.
We take non-payment of agreed affiliate commissions extremely seriously. We take non-provision of 3rd party services, including but not exclusively: hosting, scripting, programming, software, support provision, and consultancy, extremely seriously.
We will give affiliate partners a reasonable time to pay commission and support providers reasonable time to provide agreed support.
Non-payment of agreed affiliate fees; non-provision of agreed services; communications ghosting, gas-lighting, or obfuscation; lying, misleading, or deception; will be treated as a material breach of terms.
In egregious cases, and as a last resort, we reserve the right to inform the BDSM/kink community of such practices and to expose them in the public domain.
