Radisson Hotels Affiliate Program Terms & Conditions
The agreement below governs the relationship between “You” (the affiliate) and “We” or “Us” (the Radisson Hotels campaign).
By agreeing to the below, you agree that you will comply to all conditions outlined and understand that any breach of these Terms & Conditions may result in your removal from the campaign and commissions being declined.
Unless specifically agreed in writing with The Radisson Hotels Group or Accenture Interactive Affiliation Channel, affiliates must not:
i) purchase, license or operate any domain name which is confusingly
similar to “radissonhotels.com/en-us” or “radissonhotels.com”
ii) bid on the “radissonhotels.com/en-us” or “radissonhotels.com” keyword, or any of its misspellings or Radisson Hotels or Radisson Hotels brands on any of the search engines that currently operate web services; a non-exhaustive list of possible derivatives of the brand term are:
- Park inn
- Radisson Hotels.com
- Www. radissonHotels.com
- Radisson Hotels
- Radisson Hotels.co.uk
iii) use the keyword “radissonhotels.com/en-us” to perform paid search activity across any search engines that operates web services and to that effect.
Affiliates must add the “radissonhotels.com/en-us” keyword and its derivatives as above as negative matches to their PPC campaigns.
iv) use the term “radissonhotels.com/en-us” or its derivatives in the affiliate's ad text for driving traffic from either Radisson Hotels' competitors' brand terms to Radisson Hotels site or the affiliate's sites.
v) drive paid or unpaid traffic from search engines directly to Radisson Hotels' pages or the “radissonhotels.com/en-us” site overall. The affiliate has to use their own sites for traffic from search engines.
For the avoidance of doubt, the above restrictions or the specific terms of agreement regarding authorised PPC activity shall supersede any conflicting provision that may be found in any section of this Agreement.
