Secret Sales provide a variety of linking methods, including banners. It is recommended that affiliates take links directly from the linking methods section of their account.
Affiliates may not alter any of the creative or text links available through the Affiliate Window interface. Affiliates are also requested not to hardcode banners into their sites, so that any creative updates take immediate effect.
Bespoke creative or banners are available on request, please contact the Affiliate team if you would like to set this up.
Affiliates are requested to make every effort to maintain the most current pricing information in their promotions.

1.Affiliates are only permitted to use voucher codes that are specifically assigned to them, or made available explicitly to Affiliates through Awin.
2.If a voucher code has been supplied to a specific Affiliate, any sales attributed to another Affiliate using this voucher code may not be approved and commission will therefore be withheld.
