WE EXPECT THAT YOU WILL USE CAUTION AND COMMON SENSE AND EXERCISE PROPER JUDGMENT WHEN USING DISCUSSION FORUMS.

You agree that you will not upload or transmit any communications or content of any type to a Forum that infringe or violate any rights of any party. Further, you may have entered into an agreement with COMPANY that requires you to maintain the confidentiality of certain material or information of COMPANY.

Unless a Forum specifically notes that all members of the Forum who are able to view posts are bound by confidentiality obligations, and further notes what types of information may be discussed, you may not post information which COMPANY has required you to preserve as confidential.
To the extent you are the original copyright holder of any post or submission by you to a Forum and such post or submission does not contain any of the information or material of COMPANY or other information you are required to preserve as confidential by COMPANY, then; i) you remain owner of such post or submission to the extent you were the owner; ii) you automatically grant on behalf of yourself or otherwise warrant that the owner of such content or intellectual property has expressly granted COMPANY, a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, world-wide nonexclusive license to use, reproduce, create derivative works from, modify, publish, edit, translate, distribute, perform, display, and/or otherwise exploit, the post, submission, communication or content in any media or medium, or any form, format, or forum now known or hereafter developed; and iii) you agree and warrant that COMPANY may sublicense or assign its rights through multiple tiers of sublicenses or assigns.

III. Special Notes with regard to Product and Service Purchases
Products shipped by COMPANY, Inc. ("COMPANY") may be shipped by UPS Standard or by any other method in the discretion of COMPANY. A shipping charge will be imposed. Orders shipped to PR will have a 6.6% duty tax.
Sales tax is only required for orders shipping within our resident states of business. Therefore, all orders shipping within California will be charged applicable sales tax according to your area's tax rate.
Orders shipped to PR will have a 6.6% duty tax applied. Exact delivery times to PR cannot be guaranteed.
COMPANY strives for accuracy in all item descriptions, photographs, compatibility references, detailed specifications, pricing, links and any other product-related information contained herein or referenced on our website. Due to human error and other factors we cannot guarantee that all item descriptions, photographs, compatibility references, detailed specifications, pricing, links and any other product-related information listed is entirely accurate, complete or current, nor can we assume responsibility for these errors. In the event a product listed on our website is labeled with an incorrect price due to some typographical, informational, technical or other error, COMPANY shall at its sole discretion have the right to refuse and/or cancel any order for said product and immediately amend, correct and/or remove the inaccurate information.

COMPANY does not assume responsibility for the claims and/or representations made on these or any other websites.
COMPANY is not responsible for changes or variations in product specifications and/or physical appearance, since in some cases COMPANY acts as a distributor for others. In the interest of our customers, COMPANY puts forth its best efforts to ensure that all product information is up-to-date and factual. Unfortunately, there are varying determinates which, although infrequent, could cause the information on our website to become outdated without our immediate knowledge. This includes but is not limited to new versions or revisions, color deviations, retail package alterations and other variations that may be considered inconsequential by the manufacturer. In some cases, COMPANY relies on the manufacturer of a product to communicate these differences. Presently we have no way of alerting customers prior to purchase in the event the manufacturer fails to do so. Consequently, COMPANY will not be held responsible for product revision changes.

By signing up to be an Affiliate in the The Potty School® Affiliate Program (“Program”) you are agreeing to be bound by the following terms and conditions (“Terms of Service”).
The Potty School® reserves the right to update and change the Terms of Service from time to time without notice.

Continued use of the Program after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes.
Violation of any of the terms below will result in the termination of your Account and for forfeiture of any outstanding affiliate commission payments earned during the violation. You agree to use the Affiliate Program at your own risk.
Once you have signed up for the Affiliate Program, you will be assigned a unique Affiliate Code. You are permitted to place links, banners, or other graphics we provide with your Affiliate Code on your site, in your emails, or in other communications. We will provide you with guidelines, link styles, and graphical artwork to use in linking to The Potty School®. We may change the design of the artwork at any time without notice, but we won’t change the dimensions of the images without proper notice.
To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and referral fee accrual, we will provide you with special link formats to be used in all links between your site and the The Potty School®. You must ensure that each of the links between your site and the The Potty School® properly utilizes such special link formats. Links to the The Potty School® placed on your site pursuant to this Agreement and which properly utilize such special link formats are referred to as “Special Links.” You will earn referral fees only with respect to sales on a The Potty School® product occurring directly through Special Links; we will not be liable to you with respect to any failure by you or someone you refer to use Special Links or incorrectly type your Affiliate Code, including to the extent that such failure may result in any reduction of amounts that would otherwise be paid to you pursuant to this Agreement.
Affiliate links should point to the page of the product being promoted.
For a Product sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must click-through a Special Link from your site, email, or other communications to http://test.thepottyschool.com and complete an order for a product during that session.
We will only pay commissions on links that are automatically tracked and reported by our systems.

We reserve the right to disqualify commissions earned through fraudulent, illegal, or overly aggressive, questionable sales or marketing methods.
Payments only begin once you’ve earned more than $50 in affiliate income. If your affiliate account never crosses the $50 threshold, your commissions will not be realized or paid. We are only responsible for paying accounts that have crossed the $50 threshold.
You may not issue any press release with respect to this Agreement or your participation in the Program; such action may result in your termination from the Program. In addition, you may not in any manner misrepresent or embellish the relationship between us and you, say you develop our products, say you are part of The Potty School® or express or imply any relationship or affiliation between us and you or any other person or entity except as expressly permitted by this Agreement (including by expressing or implying that we support, sponsor, endorse, or contribute money to any charity or other cause).
You may not purchase products through your affiliate links for your own use. Such purchases may result (in our sole discretion) in the withholding of referral fees and/or the termination of this Agreement.
As long as your current affiliate earning are over $50, you’ll be paid each month. If you haven’t earned $50 since your last payment, we’ll pay you the following month after you’ve crossed the threshold.

Accordingly, all of our rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service, and product sales will apply to those customers. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. For example, we will determine the prices to be charged for products sold under this Program in accordance with our own pricing policies. Product prices and availability may vary from time to time.
