8. Promotion Restrictions
8.1. You are free to promote your own web sites, but naturally any promotion that mentions rebel n rose could be perceived by the public or the press as a joint effort. You should know that certain forms of advertising are always prohibited by Alternative Cosmetics. For example, advertising commonly referred to as “spamming” is unacceptable to us and could cause damage to our name. Other generally prohibited forms of advertising include the use of unsolicited commercial email (UCE), postings to non-commercial newsgroups and cross-posting to multiple newsgroups at once. In addition, you may not advertise in any way that effectively conceals or misrepresents your identity, your domain name, or your return email address. You may use mailings to customers to promote Alternative Cosmetics so long as the recipient is already a customer or subscriber of your services or web site, and recipients have the option to remove themselves from future mailings. Also, you may post to newsgroups to promote Alternative Cosmetics so long as the news group specifically welcomes commercial messages. At all times, you must clearly represent yourself and your web sites as independent from Merchant.com. If it comes to our attention that you are spamming, we will consider that cause for immediate termination of this Agreement and your participation in the Alternative Cosmetics's Affiliate Program . Any pending balances owed to you will not be paid if your account is terminated due to such unacceptable advertising or solicitation.
8.2. Affiliates that among other keywords or exclusively bid in their Pay-Per-Click campaigns on keywords and do not direct the traffic from such campaigns to their own website prior to re-directing it to ours, will be considered trademark violators, and will be banned from Alternative Cosmetics' Affiliate Program . We will do everything possible to contact the affiliate prior to the ban. However, we reserve the right to expel any trademark violator from our affiliate program without prior notice, and on the first occurrence of such PPC bidding behavior.
8.3. Affiliates are not prohibited from keying in prospect’s information into the lead form as long as the prospects’ information is real and true, and these are valid leads (i.e. sincerely interested in Merchant’s service).
8.4.

As used herein a. “Parasiteware™” and “Parasitic Marketing” shall mean an application that (a) through accidental or direct intent causes the overwriting of affiliate and non affiliate commission tracking cookies through any other means than a customer initiated click on a qualifying link on a web page or email; (b) intercepts searches to redirect traffic through an installed software, thereby causing, pop ups, commission tracking cookies to be put in place or other commission tracking cookies to be overwritten where a user would under normal circumstances have arrived at the same destination through the results given by the search (search engines being, but not limited to, Google, MSN, Yahoo, Overture, AltaVista, Hotbot and similar search or directory engines); (c) set commission tracking cookies through loading of Merchant site in IFrames, hidden links and automatic pop ups that open Merchant.com’s site; (d) targets text on web sites, other than those web sites 100% owned by the application owner, for the purpose of contextual marketing; (e) removes, replaces or blocks the visibility of Affiliate banners with any other banners, other than those that are on web sites 100% owned by the owner of the application.

Alternative Cosmetics is a luxury bath and body company that produces high quality bath and skin care products made locally in Edmonton Alberta.
We’ve always believed in the idea that what we put onto our skin should always be of extremely high quality. As it should be! Everyone’s face and body are a work of art and we wanted to create magical products that help you get in the mood and go nude.
It's SO important to take even just a few minutes a day to take care of your mental, emotional, and physical health. Whether it's taking a long hot bath, or sparking up that joint after the kids have gone to bed, our goal is to create products that help induce you to crack down and love your soul, body and mind.
Through countless hours of research and experimentation with different formulas, we came across the incredible properties of hemp. Hemp, which is a strain of the Cannabis Sativa plant, has specific natural oils that are not produced by the body, but are fundamental in skin health, helping with aging skin, moderating oil production and keeping the face and body at a perfect moisture.
We pride ourselves in using professional developed recipes containing only skin nourishing goodness. Free from sulphates, parabens and vegan friendly options!
You'll notice every single product that comes into our hands infused with love. We feel it's equally as important for us to work with and partner with suppliers and companies who share the same values as we do.
So here we are. Don’t take our word for it, try it yourself. If you love it like we do, tell someone about it. If not, we don’t blame you. Some secrets are best kept for ourselves.
CANNABIS INFUSED BATH BOMBS COMING SOON!
Meet Celine, the CEO and Founder, a sassy and lil' badassy self-care enthusiast who shares her love for all things self love and cannabis. As a busy mom of 4 who started this company knitting baby hats to keep herself busy after the birth of her first child, Alternative Cosmetics then evolved from a small knitting hobby, to making soap in her kitchen to now one of Edmonton's top bath and body brands.
Next is Cory, Celine's husband who plays a crutial part in our packaging and delivery department. You can find him packaging our products and your orders.
Meet Heather, our assistant and brand ambassador. When she is not helping hand making bath bombs or packaging orders, you can find her at social media bringing awareness to cannabis and all things bath!
We wouldn't be able to showcase our amazing products without the aid of professional photography done by Monica from Gracious Chaos Photography.
