If a publisher is found to be promoting voucher codes that have not been issued through the affiliate channel pending commission payments may be zeroed and transactions may be declined (where a voucher code has been used).

 Should you be found to be using the product feed for any other reason than promoting Wiggle products you will be in breach of the terms and conditions.
