Voucher Code Promotion Guidelines
Affiliates may only promote voucher/discount codes that are provided through the Thompson & Morgan Affiliate Programme. This constitutes codes either supplied through our account and associated marketing material or codes agreed directly with the Affiliate Programme Manager.
We do not guarantee that our Site, or any content on it, will always be available or be uninterrupted. We may suspend or withdraw or restrict the availability of all or any part of our Site for business and operational reasons. We will try to give you reasonable notice of any suspension or withdrawal.
We may suspend or withdraw or restrict the availability of all or any offers on our Site for business and operational reasons. We will try to give you reasonable notice of any suspension or withdrawal.
Thompson Morgan reserves the right to withhold the payment of commissions if unauthorised codes are used within an affiliate sale. We appreciate that consumers may use voucher codes that they have found via a site other than that which is awarded the sale and this will be investigated before decisions on commission payments are made.
Affiliates will be contacted if found to be promoting unauthorised codes. Affiliate commission maybe set to zero if affiliates are found not be cooperating with the removal of unauthorised codes.
Where voucher codes are issued with an expiry date this should be clearly displayed and codes should be removed or explicitly marked as expired after this date unless you are advised otherwise. Any affiliates displaying expired codes without marking them as being expired may be suspended from the programme. Please also ensure that you observe the IAB voucher code best practice guidelines.
Affiliates are permitted to use the content that we supply directly through our product data feeds, which includes both the supplied product copy and product images. We do not permit affiliates unlimited use of our main website content, whether copy or image related. Please ensure you check with us if you are unsure of what is approved and prohibited, prior to publishing on the internet.
Tracking of subdomains
Affiliates can create affiliated links to the search.thompson-morgan.com subdomain and sales will continue to track correctly. However, please be aware that tracking will not work when using affiliated links to land directly on the blog.thompson-morgan.com subdomain - However, standard linking to the main website which includes cross-domain browsing of the blog will continue to track correctly.
We look forward to working with you. If you would like any further information about our programme, please do not hesitate to contact us. firstname.lastname@example.org
