Linqia Terms: http://www.linqia.com/terms-use/
“Linqia will track all visitors who click on the embedded link in the Campaign post (each, a “Click”). Influencer(s) shall maintain absolute traffic integrity by not taking any action to manipulate Click traffic and ensure, to the greatest extent possible, that all Clicks originate from unique human page views that are initiated through legitimate interest in the Campaign. Specifically, in this regard, Influencer(s) shall not generate Clicks through any automated, deceptive, fraudulent or other invalid means, including but not limited to, repetitive manual Clicks, the use of robots (bot traffic) or other automated query tools and/or computer generated search requests, and/or the unauthorized use of other search engine optimization services and/or software and/or solicitation of fraudulent Clicks. Links and posts must be generated internally and limited to properties owned by the Influencer(s) and cannot be shared with other distributors, advertisers, or Influencers. Influencers are prohibited from purchasing ads from any third party service, including without limitation Facebook, Twitter and Pintrest, which include any links that are paid through Linqia. Linqia may, in its sole and absolute discretion, refuse to transact or complete any payment to the offending Influencer and may terminate such Influencer from the Campaign at its sole discretion.
