The world of internet marketing can be a bit tricky, especially when it comes to tracking cookies. There are some common misconceptions about how tracking cookies function. To dispel the myths surrounding this complex topic, we have put together a guide detailing how the process works.
First we should cover the two basic types of cookies involved in the process. The two types of cookies we will be covering in this article are “session” and “extended.” Session cookies are applied when an affiliate sends a customer to Teeshirt21 with a marketed link, containing their affiliate ID. Session cookies are active for two hours our until an item is purchased.
Teeshirt21 has a 45 day extended cookie. The extended cookie is also applied to a customer’s tracking data when they are sent here by an affiliate link. Extended cookies remain active and will refresh session cookies when customers return to the site directly.
Following the Customer
When a customer visits our website for the first time they will be assigned a tracking cookie from the affiliate who drove them to Teeshirt21. For the purpose of this article let us assume the traffic arrived from aff ?1234. This will start a two hour session cookie that will remain active until a transaction is made. If the customer leaves the page the session cookie will remain active, and if they return within two hours the session cookie will re apply. If the customer clicks on another affiliate link while the session cookie is active, they will remain set to aff ?1234.
If a product is purchased or the session cookie expires the rules change. A customer returning to our website, directly, will still have the extended cookie in their cache. As long as they reach Teeshirt21 without clicking on any outside links, the original aff, ?1234, will earn commission on anything the customer purchases. However, if the customer is surfing Facebook and finds a link to a different shirt they like and aff ?5678 drives to the customer to Teeshirt21 a new session cookie will be applied. ?5678 will now have their ID applied to the customer’s tracking data along with the 45 day extended cookie.
10.1 If you place Links on a website or section of a website that is covered by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), You must notify Teeshirt21 in writing (either by First Class U.S. Mail or electronic mail) or those websites or sections of those websites, and You must not use interest-based advertising to target: (a) past or current activity by users known by You to be under the age of thirteen (13) years or (b) past or current activity on sites directed at users under the age of thirteen (13) years.
10.2 You must comply with the Federal Trade Commission guidelines, rules, and laws regarding commercial advertising, including advertising by placing Affiliates Links on websites and social media sites (e.g. Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram). You are required to disclose the commercial nature of your Affiliates Link posts or emails by a clear and conspicuous indicator (e.g. “Affiliates Link,” or “Advertisement”) included in the post or email. You may not engage in any false advertising, and your posts must not infringe upon the rights of third parties. If you are stating that a design is to be offered only for a limited period of time, You must use My Manager to actually limit the time a design is available in conformity with your statement.
11.CAN-SPAM ACT OF 2003.
11.1 You must comply with the Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act of 2003 (the “CAN-SPAM Act”). The CAN-SPAM Act does not only apply to bulk email or targeted email marketing campaigns, but applies to “any electronic mail message the primary purpose of which is the commercial advertisement or promotion of a commercial product or service,” including email that promotes content on commercial websites.
11.2 All email messages containing an Affiliates Link must comply with the following requirements:
a. You may not use false or misleading subject lines conveying the content of the message.

c. You must clearly and conspicuously disclose commercial email messages as advertisements.
d. You must include a valid, physical postal address in your email containing a Affiliates Link. This can be your current street address, a post office box you’ve registered with the U.S. Postal Service, or a private mailbox you’ve registered with a commercial mail-receiving agency established under Postal Service regulations.
e. You must provide clear and conspicuous instructions whereby recipients may opt-out of receiving future email form you, and you must honor those requests within ten (10) business days. You may not charge a fee, require the recipient to give You personal information beyond an email address, or make the recipient take any step other than sending a reply email or visiting a single page on a website as a condition of honoring the opt-out request.
f. You may not sell or transfer a recipient’s email address once that recipient has requested to opt-out of future emails, except to transfer the address to a company you’ve hired specifically to help you comply with the CAN-SPAM Act.
11.3 Violations of the CAN_SPAM Act may be subject to penalties of up to $16,000.00 per individual occurrence (i.e. per email). Moreover, violations may result in the immediate termination of Your account and the withholding of Commissions generated as a result of each violation.
