We are writing to update you with some changes to the Amazon Associates Program Operating Agreement, which governs your participation in the Amazon Associates Program. All changes are effective on May 15, 2016.

Close MyHabit: As many of you already know, MyHabit will close on May 20, 2016 and, as of May 15, 2016, we will no longer pay any advertising fees for sales related to MyHabit. However, its visitors have unrestricted access to purchase similar Amazon Fashion brands, backed by Amazon's award-winning service, free shipping and returns, and exclusive benefits for Prime members.

Consent Update: We have added an associated consent so that we can collect and present examples of implementations of your great program. This includes the use, reproduction, distribution and display of the implementation of the Content displayed on your site as examples of best practices in our educational materials.

Update third-party Amazon video subscriptions: With the expansion of Amazon's third-party video program, we've added even more subscription reward events: eligible associates can earn a one-time reward of $ 3.00 for each successful subscription to a third-party network. For more information, visit the Bounties section at Central Associates.

Disclosure update: We extended the requirement to disclose our affiliation relationship to any medium in which you can take advantage of the content of the Associates.
