This policy was last updated

When you become a member of HitPulse.com,
you agree to be bound by the following terms
of agreement. These terms are in place to keep
HitPulse.com a friendly and respectable place
to earn free traffic. Most of these terms will
never apply to the majority of our members however
it is important that you are familiar with them.
1) Any individual, company, or
other organization may hold only ONE membership
to HitPulse.com and that membership is NON-TRANSFERRABLE.
2) HitPulse.com reserves the right
to refuse membership or cancel the membership
of any member found to be abusing the service
in any way. This includes but is NOT limited
to any of the following actions:
A) using, promoting, or linking
to any of the automatic surfing programs, software,
B) using your surf link for anything other than
your own personal surfing of our network. This
includes posting your surf link with other traffic
exchanges as well as putting your surf link
in a rotator on our network. Please understand
that we will NOT accept pleas of innocence in
defence of such action.
C) putting your hitpulse referral link in rotation
in our network in an attempt to gain extra power
D) any other action which we deem to be innapropriate
and harmful to our traffic network.
Any account in violation of any
such actions will be terminated immediately
without notice. Any member who has had their
membership terminated will lose all hits owing
to them and will NOT be allowed to join again.
3) HitPulse.com will not be responsible
for "lost" or "misdirected"
hits, nor for the "loss" or incorrect
placement of members in another member's downline,
regardless of the cause, including negligence
4) HitPulse.com accepts NO liability
with respect to any actions taken or expressed
by any of our members on any other members or
their websites. It is YOUR responsibility to
ensure that your website is secure.
5) HitPulse.com will not be held
responsible for any damages, loss of data, or
other problems associated with the use of our
website or the viewing and use of other members'
websites (this should never be a concern, but
we still need to address the issue).
6) Members may only advertise
their site if it is TOTALLY free from any pornographic,
racist, illegal (such as warez, pyramid schemes,
etc) or other inappropriate material, which
includes linking to such material. Furthermore,
you must ensure that your site does NOT prompt
the user to download anything and does NOT attempt
to set the users home page or ask to do so.
Finally, your site must be at least 90% in English.
HitPulse.com will immediately terminate the
membership of any member found to be advertising
any such inappropriate site and this member
may be subjected to prosecution according to
7) HitPulse.com makes NO guarantee
that any or all the sites posted by our members
will be free from pornographic, racist, or other
inappropriate material (as stated in clause
6 above). HitPulse.com does make every effort
to ensure that ALL sites are free from such
material, however we can not guarantee this
to be the case.
8) SPAM (unsolicited advertising)
of any sort is NOT permitted when recruiting
new members. Any members found to be spamming
will have their membership revoked and will
be subjected to local laws.
9) We do NOT allow sites that
include any special code causing multiple pop-ups,
pop-unders, additional pages to load, or other
such annoying forms of additional advertising.
Since we are allowing you to advertise a SINGLE
website (and the members only agreed to view
a SINGLE website), we consider multiple pop-ups
to be equivalent to SPAM and we will treat it
as such. In very extreme and deliberate circumstances
this may include reporting it to authorities.
****NOTE: As we have mentioned we do NOT allow
multiple pop-ups, however we will allow a SINGLE
pop-up only on
the condition that it meets the following criteria:
A) The pop-up must take up a MAXIMUM
of 50% of the total screen size. It can NOT
be full size as that obscures the main window.
B) The pop-up must display the "X"
in the top right hand corner to permit the user
to delete it with ease.
C) The pop-up must NOT give rise to any other
pop-ups, pop-unders, etc. as it is closed.
D) The pop-up must meet all the same criteria
as the main website you are advertising.
These modifications were made
to accomodate the great variety of users that
we have including those whose website is hosted
on a free server that requires a small pop-up
in order to use their service for free. We hope
that we have been able to best suit the needs
of the majority of our members.
10) We do NOT allow sites that
include a code causing them to "take over" the
top frame of the window thereby removing our
bar at the top. We have provided a "framebreaker"
test in your account manager so that you can
test your site yourself to be sure that it does
not break out of the frame. Please test your
site immeditely following your account activation
if you are not sure.
11) Members should note that there
is a bandwidth limitation placed on their referral
link. The limitation allows all free accounts
to send 1,000 visitors to their referral link
every day (500 every 12 hours), and all Premium
accounts to send 4,000 visitors to their referral
link every day (2,000 every 12 hours). Once
a member has exceeded this limitation, all other
visitors sent to their referral link will be
directed to an error page and the member will
NOT receive any credit for the visitor. This
limitation is in place because of the size of
the member base and in an effort to keep costs
down (thereby preventing the need to increase
membership prices), as well as to keep the servers
running fast for all members. Hitpulse will
NOT assume responsibility for lost revenues
or money lost in advertising costs due to this
limitation. Please note that although we allow
members to send up to 4,000 hits per day to
their referral link, it does not mean that we
are offering credits or power points for all
these hits. Please refer to the terms of your
membership to see what you actually can earn
from your referral hits.
**NOTE: any member found to be
breaking any of these conditions will have their
membership revoked without notice and they will
lose all credits associated with that account
(this includes any additional credits purchased
as well as purchased banner exposures). Bottom
line is do NOT violate these and you will be
fine. These measures are in place to maintain
the integrity of the advertising for ALL members
as well as those who are purchasing advertising
with us. We WILL enforce these measures, no
We reserve the right to modify
this policy at any time without notice. It is
the member's responsibility to check here periodically
for any updates. The continuance of your membership
indicates your continued acceptance to these
terms including any and all updates made to
them. If you no longer aggree to these terms,
then you may cancel your membership at any time
by logging into your account and under your
account settings, click on the button to delete
your account. Deleting your account is NON-reversible..
As a member of HitPulse.com you
