Purchasing of domain names
Affiliates cannot use any domain names that include the Boots.com brands.

Boots will decline commission on sales which contain an unauthorised code, or an exclusive code that has tracked through a different publisher to whom the exclusive code was assigned to. Any vouchers which have been added to the ‘My Offers’ section of Awin, communicated through our Awin newsletters or by a member of the Boots affiliates team are eligible for commission.
Customers must be logged in to redeem voucher codes.
Please make sure any URL strings you grab from the Boots site that are to be placed into the deep link generator via your own affiliate account that the URL does not contain any additional tracking information/tags as this will cause the link to not track correctly examples below:
Link to DG fragrance normal URL (which is fine):
Same link with additional tracking which does not track correctly on program (if entire url string was placed into deep link builder):
You need to make sure when creating deeplinks that you keep an eye out for these additional tracking tags, this would only appear if you reach the Boots site via an online marketing channel such as a display ad or PPC links.
