Advertiser will define the types of Transactions taken by Customers for which Publisher will be compensated. A Customer may not be Publisher, any officers or employees of Publisher, or Publisher’s agent unless specifically agreed to by Advertiser. An agent is anyone who follows Publisher’s directions or takes specific action reasonably knowing that such action will benefit Publisher. Payment of compensation by Publisher to any person based on that person’s visitation to a Web Site or to Web site content will be evidence of “agent” status but agent status may also be determined based on legal and familial relationships. Advertiser will specify the type of marketing and promotional method that is to be used by Publisher to drive sales traffic. Publisher’s compensation is paid in accordance with this Agreement.
(b) Acceptance by Advertiser. During this Agreement, Publisher may apply to Advertiser to become part of and to promote Advertiser’s Programs and earn Payments in accordance with Advertiser’s Program terms and in compliance with this Agreement. Advertiser’s approval is not guaranteed and is in Advertiser’s sole discretion. Upon approval by Advertiser for acceptance into its Program, Publisher may display (and remove) Links to Advertiser’s Web site or Web site content in accordance with the Advertiser’s Program terms and this Agreement. An Advertiser’s acceptance of Publisher is only applicable to the entity, or individual, that enters into this Agreement with ActionPay as an Publisher.
(c) Program Terms. The details of an Advertiser's Program shall be available through ActionPay’s Network Service. The Advertiser will define the Transactions that qualify for a Payment through ActionPay’s Network Service.

(b) Provision of Info to Advertisers/Third Parties. Publisher agrees that ActionPay may, but is not obligated to, provide Publisher’s email address(es) and basic Publisher Account detail (including but not limited to Publisher’s address, phone and fax number, Web site name, the date the website or subscription email first entered into operation, and visitor demographics) to Advertisers. ActionPay may provide any and all Customer, Transaction, and/or Tracking Code data to the Advertiser to which Publisher referred such Customer, and to any third party in ActionPay's sole discretion, including but not limited to all regulatory, legislative, and judicial bodies, and pursuant to allegations and claims of proprietary rights infringement.
(c) Nonsolitication. During the term of this Agreement and for six months thereafter, Publisher shall not knowingly solicit any on-line advertiser, publisher, Website, or email provider that is a member of the ActionPay. In the event Publisher does so directly contract with such a party, Publisher shall pay Company an additional commission equal to what Company would otherwise have earned had Publisher not violated this Section 15(c).
(d) Noncompetition. During the term of this Agreement and six months after termination of this Agreement, Publisher shall not enter into any agree to provide or provide services similar to the services Publisher is providing under this Agreement with a person or entity offering services and products similar to those offered by any Advertiser which accepted Publisher into its program. The six month time period stated above shall be suspended during each period of time in which Publisher is in breach under this Section. ActionPay further reserves the right to reduce the scope of the obligations under the restrictive covenants in this section unilaterally and without the consent of any other person or entity, effective upon giving notice thereof. The provisions of this Section constitute separate and distinct covenants on the part of Publisher. The restrictions set forth in this Section shall be deemed severable and the invalidity or unenforceability of any restriction shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any of the other restrictions of this Section or any other provisions of this Agreement. If any court or arbitrator of competent jurisdiction determines that any restriction under this Section is unreasonable in scope, duration or geographic area or is unenforceable under applicable law, ActionPay and Publisher agree that the court or arbitrator shall rewrite, strike or eliminate the portion of such restriction that is unreasonable or unenforceable, in which event the remaining portions of such restriction shall continue in force and effect. In the event of any breach by Publisher of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including this Section, ActionPay shall have the right, among any other rights or remedies at law or in equity, to seek and receive injunctive relief to restrain Publisher from continuing with such breach. As the ActionPay and Publisher’s business is primarily conducted over the internet, Publisher acknowledges that the geographical scope and other restrictive covenants of this noncompetition provision are fair, reasonable and necessary to protect ActionPay and Advertiser’s legitimate interests and investment in its business. Publisher represents and warrants that Publisher’s experience and skills are such that the restrictive covenants set forth in this Agreement, including this Section, will not prevent Publisher from earning as a business person an adequate livelihood for Publisher and those dependent upon Publisher should such restrictive covenants be specifically enforced against Publisher.
