NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises, covenants, warranties, and other good and valuable consideration set forth herein, the Parties agree as follows:

  1. Promotional Materials. TEFL UK shall make available to Affiliate certain text links, and/or other graphic or textual material for display and use on the Affiliate website or social media (the “Promotional Materials”). Affiliate shall display the Promotional Materials on Affiliate’s website or social media prominently and as Affiliate sees fit, provided that the manner of display shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
