or Access Memberships.

Membership converts to an Access Membership.
“Short-Term Membership” generally means a Membership, which
provides a user short-term access (the initial term is always less
than thirty days, but typically three or seven days) to the relevant

a condition of your participation in the Program, you acknowledge and
agree to the following limitations and restrictions. Failure to
adhere to these limitations and restrictions and/or other breach of
this Agreement may result in immediate suspension or termination of
your account, disabling of your Affiliate Code, and/or termination of
this Agreement. You hereby acknowledge and agree that you shall not
be entitled to a Referral Fee for any referrals sent while in
violation of the these restrictions or the terms of this Agreement,
related to any Fraudulent Activity (as defined below), or for any
prohibited users. The foregoing shall not interfere with LTI’s
ability to pursue all other rights and remedies available to it under
the law. LTI shall not be responsible for monitoring, supervising or
reviewing your sites and shall further not be responsible for any
content appearing on or available through your site(s) other than
unaltered Licensed Content.
In connection with your participation in the Program, you will comply
with all applicable laws, including local, state, federal, or
international laws, rules, and regulations. You agree that all
content on your site, including Licensed Content, may only be
accessed by consenting adults in locations where such content does
not violate community standards. All unlawful content is strictly
prohibited. You are responsible for all content posted on your site
and are prohibited from posting any unlawful content. You further
agree to the following:
post on your web site, or provide any links to any matter that
involves depictions of nudity or sexuality by a minor, an age
inappropriate-appearing performer (i.e., a performer who looks
younger than 18 years of age) or by a performer who is portrayed or
made to appear to be a person under the age of 18 by virtue of the
script, make-up, costuming, demeanor, setting, etc.
post on your web site, or provide any links to any inappropriate
material, including without limitation any material depicting
bestiality, rape, torture and/or content which is obscene.
You WILL NOT be entitled to a commission or referral fee for any
subscription that LTI determines is the result of possible fraudulent
activity (“Fraudulent Activity”). You acknowledge and agree that
LTI shall have the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, at any
time to expand or modify what it determines to constitute possible
Fraudulent Activity. Possible Fraudulent Activity shall include
without limitation, the following circumstances or activities:
Where a user has used or attempts to use a credit card number that is
in a negative database;
Where there are multiple subscriptions from a single IP address
within a short period of time;
Where there are sequential or multiple subscriptions under different
names, or variations of the same name using the same credit card
number, or sequential names or patterns of names using different
credit card numbers;
Where there is a pattern of numerous subscriptions from a website in
a relatively short period of time (a "Sales Surge Period"),
where there has been history of few subscriptions from that website
before or after the Sales Surge Period.
Where there has been an attempt to process a credit card with a bin
number that is listed in a negative bin number database; or
Where there have been sequential or multiple attempts to register or

has the right to deny or withhold payment from you and to terminate
you from the Program if there has been an abnormal number of
chargebacks or cancellations of memberships referred to LTI through
your site. You further acknowledge and agree that LTI shall have the
right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to determine what
constitutes an abnormal number of chargebacks or cancellations of
Spam in connection with the Program. Although U.S. federal and state
law may not prohibit all forms of spamming, LTI imposes a stricter,
no-spam policy for Affiliates of the Program. What constitutes
spamming will evolve over time as new technologies and methodologies
emerge for spammers to find new ways to abuse the Program. Some of
the factors that LTI takes into account when determining what
constitutes spamming are:
If you have violated a U.S. federal or state anti-spamming law,
including any portion of the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 (15 U.S.C. § 7701
et seq.) or any of the federal regulations promulgated
b. If you have violated the anti-spamming
policy of any third party;
c. If you have sent
unsolicited bulk messages to non-consenting recipients;
If you have misleading or false information contained in your
messages, subject line, or message-headers;
If you use automated means to collect, transmit and/or sell the
electronic addresses of others;
If you use a third party site or program to automatically generate
and send messages or content;
If the primary purpose of your message is commercial in nature;
h. The number of spam or abuse complaints that have
been lodged against you.
one factor is controlling, and LTI will look to the particular
circumstances of each case to determine what constitutes spamming.
When in doubt, don't do it. Bottom line: If you Spam, you are out.

Parties agree that any and all disputes or controversies of any
nature between them arising at any time that cannot be resolved
between the Parties themselves shall be determined by confidential
(to the extent permitted by law), final and binding arbitration in
Los Angeles County, California, in accordance with the Commercial
Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA")
before three (3) neutral arbitrators ("Arbitrators")
mutually agreed upon by the Parties. If the Parties are unable to
agree on Arbitrators, then AAA shall appoint the Arbitrators. The
Parties shall be entitled to conduct discovery in accordance with the
California Code of Civil Procedure then in effect, provided that (i)
the Arbitrators must authorize all such discovery in advance based on
findings that the material sought is relevant to the issues in
dispute and that the nature and scope of such discovery is reasonable
under the circumstances, and (ii) discovery shall be limited to
depositions and production of documents unless the Arbitrators finds
that another method of discovery (e.g., interrogatories) is the most
reasonable and cost efficient method of obtaining the information
sought. The Arbitrators shall have the power to enter monetary
damages and equitable relief as determined by the Arbitrators.
Judgment upon the award rendered in any such arbitration may be
entered in any court of competent jurisdiction, or application may be
made to such court for a judicial acceptance of the award and
enforcement, as the law of such jurisdiction may require or allow.
Nothing in this section shall prevent either Party from seeking
interlocutory and/or injunctive relief from a court of competent
jurisdiction. Class action lawsuits and/or class-wide arbitrations
aren’t allowed. Nor is combining individual proceedings without the
consent of all Parties. If the class action waiver is found to be
illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a dispute, then
those parts won’t be arbitrated, but will proceed in court, with
the rest proceeding in arbitration.
fees payable to AAA and the Arbitrators hereunder shall be borne
equally by the Parties, provided that the prevailing Party shall be
entitled to reimbursement by the other Party for reasonable
attorneys' fees, expert witness fees, and any and all other
reasonable costs and expenses incurred in the arbitration.
PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR RIGHT TO JURY TRIAL WITH RESPECT TO ALL
CLAIMS AND ISSUES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT
WHETHER SOUNDING IN CONTRACT OR TORT, AND INCLUDING ANY CLAIM FOR
FRAUDULENT INDUCEMENT THEREOF.
