- Members agree prominently display fellow members' banners by including
the unmodified code (provided by Banner-Index at sign up) on their web site,
in as many or few pages as they wish. All Banner-Index banners must be
placed above the fold on a page or pages frequently seen by your website's
visitors. Above the fold means that someone opening up your web page will
see the banner without needing to scroll. Normally it is placed at the
top of the page, but you may browse this website to see examples of how the
banner can be placed at the bottom of the page, yet remain above the fold.

advertising with your banner

placing more than one banner on your page at a time or by using a device,
program, or any other means. A member may not display more than one
Banner-Index exchange banner on any page. A member may not include the
banner on any pages that auto reload, redirected, or on a page which is not
linked from other parts of your site. If you willfully attempt to defraud
Banner-Index by violating this stipulation you agree to reimburse
Banner-Index for the cost of administration of your site's banners, not
limited to but including: cost of server throughput for each banner
fraudulently downloaded to your site by the devices mentioned above for both
the banners you obtained illegally as well as the banners wasted by display
on your site at a rate of $15.00 per thousand banners, administration fees
pertaining to tracking your site and discovering your fraud, and all legal
and collection fees. You also agree to indemnify Banner-Index for all losses
incurred due to your fraud.
