This Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions under which Global Network Services Ltd (“GNS”) makes the My Private Network Affiliate Programme (“Programme”) available to you. By becoming an affiliate you expressly agree to be bound by and follow all terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement.
We reserve the right to modify, add or delete any of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, at any time and at our sole discretion. If any modification is unacceptable to you, your only recourse is to terminate this Agreement and your participation in the Programme. Your continued participation in the Affiliate Programme following posting of a change notice or new agreement on our website will constitute binding acceptance of the changes.
We may reject your application or cancel your membership in the Programme if we determine that your organization or website is not suitable for the Programme or have violated the spirit of the Programme. You agree to only promote the Service for lawful purposes. This means that you agree not to promote the use of the service for transmitting or receiving any illegal, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, obscene, sexually explicit, profane, violent, racially or ethnically disparaging remarks or otherwise objectionable material of any kind, including but not limited to any material that encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to a civil liability, or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, national or international law.
You, the affiliate, agree not to:
- Engage in any ‘SPAM’ campaign or inappropriate newsgroup posts featuring the GNS / MPN name or website.

- Violate any of our intellectual property rights, copyright, trademarks or those of any third party.
- Promote misleading or false information about any aspect of our service.
You may not use the affiliate programme for your own personal account with My Private Network to affect a discount on a subscription. The affiliate programme is intended as an incentive for 3rd parties to recommend and promote our service.
GNS will terminate your agreement immediately and cancel all unpaid referral fees if you violate the above conditions. All complaints will be reviewed on a one-to-one basis and we will be the final arbiters on what constitutes abuse.
GNS will process payments to affiliates at the end of each month following the original payment. Payments will be made via PayPal with any fees being borne by the affiliate, subject to a minimum payment amount of £20.
