Operational and Technical Details

A private, secure URL (Uniform Resource Locator) on the Web, with a unique Partner ID and password, will be provided to the Partner to effect this access.
3.3 Greenstar will provide the Partner with regular messages via email about Greenstar's activities worldwide in the areas of renewable energy, ecommerce and international development. These specially-formatted messages may be used by the Partner in any manner it deems most effective. This includes sending the message as an email, including it in a newsletter, flyer, bill insert or other publication, or any other medium either physical or electronic.
3.4 The Partner may edit the message and/or add to it in any way it deems fit to best communicate the information to its customers, provided that information provided about Greenstar, its products and special offers, is accurate. If such inaccuracies are found, the Partner agrees that it will make the necessary corrections immediately. Each message will contain one or more hyperlinks to a specific custom page, designed for the Partner on Greenstar's website.
3.5 The Partner will also receive from Greenstar a set of automated text links and graphic banners, in JPEG, GIF and/or hypertext form, which the Partner's customer's may use to connect with the Greenstar website. These links and/or banners may be placed on the Partner's website, or any website controlled by it without limitation, on any page, and combined may be with any other explanatory information the Partner chooses.
3.6 The Partner understands that it needs to maintain the accuracy of the message links, and hypertext links in the messages it sends and the Greenstar images and words that it uses or displays, (as described in parts 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5 above) in order to guarantee the correct operation of the Premium Partner tracking software for payment of commissions due to the Partner.
3.7 Greenstar will maintain a custom information page on its website, in order to perform the linking function. The information and images on this page which describe the Partner's programs may be modified at any time, at the Partner's request, in any reasonable way consistent with both the purposes of Greenstar and of the Partner.

Greenstar Premium Partners Program:
Greenstar is founded on a simple idea: that people, no matter where they live, have the same basic needs: for food, shelter, caring for their children and families, building their future, leading a life of learning, creativity and dignity, living in harmony with the earth.
Where people in emerging nations don't enjoy the social and economic conditions to support these basic needs, all they need is the tools to grow by themselves, some assistance and startup resources.
Greenstar invests in these communities, and provides the people with practical tools.
The Greenstar Premium Partner program is designed to financially benefit organizations that share these ideals. Premium Partner organizations use email, or other media, to generate income for themselves. The program also benefits Greenstar and its programs in developing countries around the world.
Eligible organizations include those involved in the fields of environment, health, education, renewable energy, telecommunications, international development, the Web, ecommerce and associated technologies. They may be businesses or non-profit, government or international organizations.
