If the quality standards for the submission are not achieved, we reserve the right to perform the remaining steps internally using our own resources, and also, we may adjust the rate depending on the amount or work that needs to be done.  We reserve the right to request variations on submitted content from Contributors for the purposes of adding additional content to our store, if the Contributor is unresponsive, unable, or unwilling to create the variation, we reserve the right to create the variation and post the content ourselves. For such variations that we create ourselves, we reserve the right to set revenue share rates at our sole discretion. Contributors earning revenue share on submissions may continue to earn for as long as their Contributor membership remains active.  Memberships may be revoked for illegal behavior or any inappropriate conduct.  Contributors ARE allowed to promote their own products through appropriate advertising channels.  Emailing, Cold Calls, Excessive posts to 3rd party websites or forums, or any other Spamming technique is strictly prohibited.  We value our public image.  If Contributors promote in any method deemed inappropriate or in violation of any laws or any other business's terms and conditions, we reserve the right to revoke that Contributor's membership.
