AGREEMENT
Affiliate Program Agreement

This Agreement contains the terms and conditions that apply to your participation in the Affiliate Program of World Language Resources, Inc. (WLR), and the establishment of links from your web site ("Affiliate Site") to WLR's web site, WorldLanguage.com ("Host Site").

1. Enrollment in the Affiliate Program
To begin the enrollment process, the affiliate will submit a complete Affiliate Program application via the Host Site. WLR will evaluate the affiliate's application in good faith and will notify the affiliate of the affiliate's acceptance or rejection in a timely manner. WLR may reject the affiliate's application if WLR determines (in WLR's sole discretion) that the Affiliate Site is unsuitable for the Affiliate Program for any reason, including, but not limited to, inclusion of content that is in any way unlawful, harmful, threatening, defamatory, obscene, harassing, or racially, ethnically, or otherwise objectionable. If WLR rejects the affiliate's application, the affiliate is welcome to reapply to the Affiliate Program at any time.

2. Promotion of WLR's Affiliate Relationship
a. As an Affiliate Site, WLR will make available to the affiliate (via WorldLanguage.com's affiliate program" pages) a variety of graphic and textual links ("Link" or "Links"), which, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the affiliate may display as often and in as many areas on the Affiliate Site as the affiliate desire. The Links will serve to identify the Affiliate Site as a member of WLR's Affiliate Program and will establish a link from the Affiliate Site to the Host Site. The Links may connect to specific places or products on the Host Site.
b. Agreements Regarding Links: In utilizing the Links, the affiliate agrees that the affiliate will cooperate fully with WLR in order to establish and maintain such Links. The affiliate also agrees to display in the Affiliate Site only those graphic or textual images (indicating a Link) that are provided by WLR, and the affiliate will substitute such images with any new images provided by WLR from time to time throughout the term of this Agreement. All Affiliate Sites shall display such graphic and/or textual images prominently in relevant sections of their site. All Links may be modified and/or expanded from time to time throughout the term of this Agreement pursuant to the mutual written agreement of the parties hereto. Each Link connecting users of the Affiliate Site to the pertinent area of the Host Site will in no way alter the look, feel, or functionality of the Host Site. In addition, WLR encourage (but do not require) the affiliate to include a Link to the home page of the Host Site.

3. WLR's Responsibilities
WLR will be responsible for providing all information necessary to allow the affiliate to make appropriate Links from the Affiliate Site to the Host Site. WLR will be solely responsible for processing every order placed by a customer following a special Link from the Affiliate Site, for tracking the volume and amount of sales generated by the Affiliate Site, and for providing information to Affiliate Sites regarding sales statistics. WLR will be responsible for order entry, payment processing, shipping, cancellations, returns, and related customer service.

4. Other Responsibilities and Opportunities of Affiliate Sites
a. If the affiliate qualify and agree to participate as an Affiliate Site, the affiliate shall display Links prominently throughout the Affiliate Site as the affiliate see fit and with WLR's consent.
b. Contests and Promotions: As an Affiliate Site, the affiliate will be entitled to participate and promote on the Affiliate Site any sweepstakes, contests, and special promotions WLR may offer, and in connection therewith, WLR shall make such contests and promotions available to users of the Affiliate Site. In addition, the affiliate will be entitled to earn commissions as set forth in sections 6 and 7 below.
c. Compliance with the Agreement: WLR has the right in WLR's sole discretion to monitor the Affiliate Site at any time and from time to time to determine if the affiliate are in compliance with the terms of this Agreement.

5. Commission Determination
a. Only products that are (i) sold by WLR, (ii) purchased by users linking to the Host Site from the Affiliate Site pursuant to a Link ("Linked Users"), and (iii) for which WLR has received full payment will qualify for a commission (each, a "Qualifying Purchase"). Commission rates will be based on the aggregate amount actually paid to WLR for Qualifying Purchases of the WorldLanguage.com Products, excluding amounts collected by WLR for sales taxes, duties, gift-wrapping, shipping, handling, and similar charges, amounts due to credit card fraud and bad debt, and credits for returned goods ("Net Sales"). All available items on the Host Site will be included in the computation of Net Sales.
b. Sales commission to be 3% of net sales on electronic items and 8% of net sales of all other items.

6. Reports and Payment of Commissions from Sales
a. The affiliate will be given a password and have the ability to enter a password-protected site to receive the affiliate's sales statistics on a daily basis.
b. When the total commissions due to the affiliate (based on Section 6 above) exceed one hundred dollars (USD $100), WLR will send a commission check for the applicable commission (less any taxes required to be withheld under applicable law) and a statement of activity to the affiliate. Such commission checks and statements of activity will be sent approximately thirty (30) days after the end of each three-month anniversary of the date of this Agreement. Sums less than $100 will be paid at the conclusion of the Agreement regardless of the amount owed.

7. Policies and Pricing
Customers who buy WorldLanguage.com Products through the Affiliate Program will be deemed to be customers of WorldLanguage.com. Accordingly, all of WLR's rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service, and WorldLanguage.com Product sales will apply to those customers. WLR may change WLR's policies and operating procedures at any time. For example, WLR will determine the prices to be charged for WorldLanguage.com Products sold under the Affiliate Program in accordance with WLR's own pricing policies. Prices and availability of WorldLanguage.com Products may vary from time to time. Because price changes may affect products that the affiliate already have listed on the Affiliate Site, the affiliate may not include price information in the affiliate's product descriptions. WLR will use commercially reasonable efforts to present accurate information, but WLR cannot guarantee the availability or price of any particular product.

8. Publicity
The affiliate shall not create, publish, distribute, or permit any written material that makes reference to WLR without first submitting such material to WLR and receiving WLR's written consent, which WLR agree shall not be unreasonably withheld.

9. No Ownership Interest of the Linked Site Conveyed to Affiliate
a. The Agreement in no way infers that the Linked Site belongs to Affiliate. No such ownership interest is intended or conveyed. All of the materials and information appearing on the Linked Site are copyrighted and are owned by World Language. The mere fact that the name of the Linked Site may appear as "Affiliate," for the purposes of this Agreement, shall not serve to convey any ownership interest in the Linked Site to Affiliate. Any trademarks used in the Linked Site remain the sole and exclusive property of World Language.
b. The affiliate and WLR are independent contractors, and nothing in this Agreement will create any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative, or employment relationship between the parties. The affiliate will have no authority to make or accept any offers or representations on WLR's behalf. The affiliate will not make any statement, whether on the Affiliate Site or otherwise, that reasonably would contradict anything in this Section.

10. Obligations Regarding Your Site

11. Term of the Agreement
The term of this Agreement will begin upon WLR's acceptance of this Affiliate Program application and will end when terminated by either party. Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause, by giving the other party written notice of termination.

WLR may withhold the affiliate's final payment for a reasonable time to ensure that the correct amount is paid.

12. Modification

If any modification is unacceptable to the affiliate, the affiliate's only recourse is to terminate this Agreement. Your continued participation in the Affiliate Program following WLR's posting of a new Agreement on the Host Site will constitute binding acceptance of the change.
