Terms of Use and Privacy Policy

Linksgiving.com is a collection of user-submitted links, a place where Internet users can suggest the best Web sites they have come across, so that everyone on the Internet can access and enjoy them.
The minimum number of suggested Web sites must not be less than TWO (in total, various and/or "looking for" links) and these two sites must not be connected whatsoever (e.g. same webmaster, same organisation...).
Single suggestions will NOT be accepted.

You can insert links to Web sites of different sorts (commercial sites must have a substantial useful content available at no charge), but with precise restrictions:
LINKS TO ILLEGAL WEB SITES AND OR DEALING WITH BLASPHEMY, EXTREMISM AND OR RACISM, BETTING, GAMBLING AND OR CASINO ACTIVITIES, LIBEL, OBSCENITY, PORNOGRAPHY, VIOLENCE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

Linksgiving.com is not obliged to give reasons of the non-insertion of any links into the file (even if they do not belong to the categories mentioned above) if they are considered to be of little interest in the context of the Linksgiving.com database.

Linksgiving.com is a free service. You do NOT need to register to give your links and to access the Linksgiving.com database. Anyhow, on the "input" page "Linksgiving" you can, if you wish, give some personal information, that remains confidential, like any other personal information collected by us within our Web site, and will be useful for us to create a users profile, in order to bring the site offer more accurately into line with the users demand.

Children under 13 years of age are asked not to give any personal information.

Cookies

Cookies are set by our iDevAffiliate software when you access Linksgiving.com through an affiliate link. Cookies are also set by Google Analytics, a Web analytics tool by Google.com. Cookies may be also set from ad server companies that place ads on our Web site.
You may, if you wish, prevent use of such cookies by changing the setting on your browser. However, doing so, some functionality may be lost. AboutCookies.org is a guide to deleting and controlling cookies.
Please consult the privacy policies of the sites we are affiliated with. As far as Google Analytics is concerned, you may refer to this page.

Paid Listings

Webmasters can list their own site in our Directory as a sponsor.
A yearly listing for one site costs US $29. This is a recurring fee that can be cancelled up until the day of the next scheduled payment. It is for review of the website only and does not guarantee inclusion. It is refundable only in case an eligible site is refused and therefore never listed. Refunds will not be given for websites that do not meet our editorial guidelines (see below).
Special terms may be arranged upon request in case of multiple submissions, in conjunction with affiliate membership.
We accept PayPal for payment, or you may purchase from 2Checkout.com. 2Checkout.com, Inc. (Ohio, USA) is an authorized retailer of Linksgiving.com.

Sponsor sites are listed in alphabetical order above our user-submitted sites and are recognizable by the icon sponsor site.
They are assigned a page with a category that is suitable to their themes.
We may change the location of a sponsor site to another related category (e.g. a subcategory) without the site owner/webmaster consent. Anyway, in that case the site owner/webmaster is notified by email.

WE DO NOT ACCEPT APPLICATIONS BY ILLEGAL, ADULT, BETTING, GAMBLING AND OR CASINO WEBSITES, BY VIAGRA AND SIMILAR PHARMACEUTICAL SITES, BY FREE-FOR-ALL LINKS PAGES, BANNER OR LINK FARMS OR OTHER JUNK SITES.
We reserve the right to refuse any Web site even if it does not belong to the categories mentioned above.
A sponsor site that has changed content and may be included among the categories listed above will be temporarily cancelled from our directory. After discussing the problem with its owner/webmaster, we will remove it forever, if he/she is not willing to comply with our linking policies any more.

Under no circumstances shall Linksgiving.com be liable to you or any other person for any direct, indirect or incidental damage to our database that results in loss of links or closure of our website.

Affiliate Program

Basic information about our affiliate program can be found on our Affiliate Program page.
Here you find additional, complementary information on it. Both information constitutes the terms and conditions of our program.

In order to apply for our affiliate program you must be 18 years of age or older.

The affiliate relationship between you and Linksgiving.com will begin upon our acceptance of your application and will end when terminated by either party. Either you or we may terminate it at any time, with or without reason, by giving the other party notice of termination.

We reserve the right to refuse any application if we determine a website is unsuitable for the program. Unsuitable sites include, but are not limited to, those that promote sexually explicit materials, violence, discrimination, illegal activities, that infringe or violate intellectual property rights, that include 'Linksgiving.com' or variations or misspellings thereof in their domain name.
If we reject your application, you are welcome to reapply to the Program at any time.
If we accept your application and your site is later determined, in our sole discretion, to be unsuitable, we may close your affiliate partner account at any time and will not be liable to you for any costs, lost profits or damages resulting from our closing of your account.

If your application is approved and you are given an affiliate partner account, we will provide you with detailed instructions on how to link to our site through 'tagged links' that permit tracking of clicks.
You may display those links as often and in as many areas of your site as you desire.

You are not allowed to modify in any way the TRACKING CODE (HREF tag), the TEXT of our links and the BANNERS given by us.
If you wish to better integrate a text/html link into your site, you may format it (for instance with <B>, <I>, etc...). If you do not have much experience in that field, we recommend you not to alter the HTML code at all. You are always welcome to contact us for help.

We use iDevDirect.com's iDevAffiliate software to track and report on visitors and sales. 'Cookies' and IP logs are used at this purpose.

We may modify any of the terms and conditions at any time. You will be notified by email and if the modifications are unacceptable to you, your only recourse is to terminate your participation in this Affiliate Program. Your continued participation in this Affiliate Program after a change of the terms and conditions will constitute binding acceptance of the change.

You must understand and agree that you are acting as an independent contractor and as such will be responsible for your own Income Taxes and any other tax liabilities that affect the sales of our products in your state. There will be no partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative, or employment relationship between you and us. You will have no authority to make or accept any offers or representations on our behalf.

We reserve the right to withhold any commissions it deems as fradulent such as those being earned or obtained through the use or spyware, BHO's (Browser Help Operators) or any other commission altering software program.

You are prohibited from sending SPAM or Unsolicited Commercial Email, from purchasing, harvesting, collecting email addresses from the Internet or otherwise without the consent of their owners.

Failure to adhere to our terms and conditions will result in your account being closed.
