Special Program Commission Income
From time to time, we may run general special programs that may provide all or some Associates the opportunity to earn additional or alternative commission income(“Special Program Commission Income”). For the avoidance of doubt (and notwithstanding any time period described in this section), Amazon reserves the right to discontinue or modify all or part of any special program at any time. All such special programs (even those which do not involve purchases of Products) are subject to disqualifying exclusions substantially similar to those identified in Section 2 of this Commission Income Statement, and any restriction under the Program Documents applicable to a Product purchase will also apply on a substantially similar basis as restrictions for special programs.
As described in the table below, you will earn Special Program Commission Income described in this Section 4(a) in connection with “Bounty Events” which occur when (1) our customer, who must be eligible for the Bounty Event as described in Table 2 below, clicks through a Special Link on your Site to a bounty-specific homepage on an Amazon Site, and (2) during the resulting Session our customer completes the bounty action described in Table 2 below:

Amazon will determine in its sole discretion, in each case, whether a Bounty Event has occurred or has been disqualified due to a violation or other abuse (for example, registrations made using invalid email addresses, use of bots or automated software, multiple Bounty Events by a single person, repetitive Bounty Events, Bounty Events from your IP address, and Bounty Events that do not result from Special Links on your Site).
Special Links to the bounty-specific homepages listed in Table 2 are permitted in connection with the corresponding bounty, notwithstanding the Associates Program Participation Requirements.
