Here is an example of an ad that is in compliance with our Terms:
E3Live Organic Nutrition
High-Quality Superfood,Fast Shipping
Klamath Lake AFA, edible blue-green algae

8. USING CONTENT FROM E3LIVE.COM
As an E3live affiliate, you are permitted to use content in good faith from our www.e3live.com website (photos, testimonials, recipes, etc) as long as it is for purposes of the affiliate program. However, you may not "copy" the look of our site (design or code), replicate our site, or otherwise use the same or similar design and layout of our site as your own. Your site needs to clearly be identified by the viewer as being yours, the viewer should never have any confusion as to whether they are on the official E3Live corporate page (owned and operated by E3Live) or not. In other words - your site should have a look & feel (design elements, layout, colors, etc.) that is distinctly different from that of www.e3live.com, but you may use our content on your site to promote the affiliate program.
