Affiliate Agreement

Last Updated 10/12/2005

By joining the InternetSupervision Affiliate Program you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions and are becoming a “party” to this Agreement with Emergency Twenty Four, Inc. (EM24).

  1. EM24 owns and operates website monitoring services known as InternetSupervision (IS). Visit for a full description of the individual services and current pricing. EM24 wants you to offer and or promote one or more of its InternetSupervision services to your members, subscribers, constituents and/or the public at large.  In exchange of your promotion of IS, EM24 will share 30% of all the subscriber fees for as long as the generated subscriber continues to pay for the services from the initial time of sign-up and continuing into the future.
  1. Method of Referral: A link to the IS website will be provided to you to place in your website.  You can then direct your members, subscribers, constituents or the public at large to use the IS services.  When they press on the link, the prospect will transition to the IS web pages via that link in order to enroll in one or more of the services.  EM24 will attempt to place a “cookie” onto the computer of the visitor. That cookie will identify that computer’s user as being referred to EM24 by your website. If the person immediately enrolls, that person will forever be linked to you. If the person does not immediately enroll in a service, the cookie will identify your website as the referrer for a period of 90 days.  If the person returns directly to the IS web pages at any time during the 90-day period to enroll in the service(s), he/she will be automatically identified and assigned to your website as the referrer. The cookie will only work if that computer has its cookies enabled and if the cookie is not erased at some later date.
  1. Requirements of the Transition: The following describe the requirements of all visitor transitions emanating from your website.
    1. ANY type general advertising campaign, brochures, email campaign, and use of a “pop-up”, “pop-under”, or “banner” window or display that promotes InternetSupervision Services must be approved by EM24 prior to implementation.
