We want to help you understand what will and will not be accepted for a landing page. The following guidelines should be followed:
Landing pages must not attempt to represent themselves as IdentityForce, the company. It is not acceptable for a landing page to contain IdentityForce images or logos, to have site similarities (color schemes, style sheets, etc.) to the IdentityForce.com site or anything that could make the public think that the landing page belongs to IdentityForce, or IdentityForce.com. Permission to use certain pre-approved IdentityForce logos will be given after site approval. Each landing page must prominently state that it is an affiliate of IdentityForce and that it does not belong to IdentityForce itself. The exact following text must be used: This site is run by XXXX, a contracted Affiliate of IdentityForce, and is not owned or operated by IdentityForce. This text must appear in a minimum of an 8 point font above the fold for pages optimized to 1024x768 and higher. Blog postings (but not entire Affiliate blog sites) are exempt from this requirement, however all copy must be approved by IdentityForce. However, upon approval, affiliates may use cobranded landing pages, where their logo appears next or close to the IdentityForce logo.
Landing pages must represent accurate, authorized discounts and/or IdentityForce service offerings.
Affiliates may not copy any portion or the complete content or code of IdentityForce.com
The use of trademarked terms is no longer allowed in bidding or in anchor, headline and display/description text showed in the search results for both Affiliates and IdentityForce competitors. Trademark terms include: Identityforce, Identityforce.com, 877-IDFORCE, 877-MYIDFORCE, SmarterIdentity, SmarterIdentity.com, SmarterPrivacy, SmarterPrivacy.com.

All Affiliate email marketing for IdentityForce MUST be CAN SPAM ACT compliant. All Affiliates must abide by the following requirements:
No false or misleading header information. - The email should appear to come from the exact sender/ Affiliate. This means that the email cannot appear to come directly or indirectly from IdentityForce. No deceptive subject lines. The subject line cannot mislead the recipient about the contents or subject matter of the message. The subject line should only represent IdentityForce products and services in the truest form.
You must give recipients an opt-out method. You must provide a return email address or another Internet-based response mechanism that allows a recipient to ask you not to send future email messages to that email address, and you must honor the requests. IdentityForce reserves the right to compile these opt-out requests in order to populate an opt-out exclusion database.
Affiliates must scrub their lists against IdentityForce's suppression list manager. Furthermore, Affiliates must submit additional opt-out requests to IdentityForce's suppression list manager. For information, please email email@example.com.
Your email marketing must be identified as an "advertisement" and must clearly provide the sending affiliate's valid physical postal address. If Affiliates would like to create their own IdentityForce html emails, they must submit the email for approval to affiliates@IdentityForce.com with the exact subject line "REVIEW - Affiliate HTML Email Review." In a manner similar to the Landing Page review detailed above.
