Acceptance of Terms

CampusBlvd.com provides its services to you subject to the following Terms of Service (TOS) which may be updated from time to time. You can receive the most current version of the TOS at any time by contacting us at links@campusblvd.com and requesting the most recent version.

1.       Family-Friendly Content

You agree to notify us when you place your order if your site is related to Adult, Pharmaceuticals, or Gambling, defined as:

  • Adult sites: Sites that display nudity or are sexually explicit.
  • Gambling sites: Sites that require customers to pay money to win money. Some exceptions do exist such as raffles. For additional information please contact us at links@campusblvd.com or your Account Manager, if you are uncertain.
  • Pharmaceutical: Any site that sells prescription medications, including but not limited to, sites featuring drug brand names such as Viagra, Phentermine, etc.

You also agree not to knowingly link to any sites involving Adult, Pharmaceuticals or Gambling unless your site is directly related to these topics. You understand that linking to off-topic Gambling, Pharmaceutical, or Pornography sites puts you at extremely high risk of receiving a Google penalty and/or criticism from the visitors to family-friendly sites that form the bulk of our inventory partners. You understand that if your site incurs a Google penalty during the link term - indicated by a drop to PageRank of zero and accompanied by questionable SEO practices - we will remove your link and you will be given no refund. Please do not engage in activities that will get you banned. If you are unsure of what activities will get you banned, we suggest you research this prior to purchasing your links.

2.        PageRank (PR) Guarantee

CampusBlvd.com agrees to place your advertisement on your selected site with the PR as listed in our inventory at the time of your order. Google has been known to perform PR updates on a periodic basis. Since there are no clearly defined schedules as to when, how frequent, or which sites will be affected by the PR updates, CampusBlvd.com updates the PR and any pricing adjustment of our Inventory Partners’ sites on approximately a bi-annual basis. The PR and pricing for links will remain as is in our inventory until all the adjustments are complete. 

PLEASE NOTE: Reductions in PR does not mean that the site has any less link popularity, less traffic or less quality. It only means Google is counting things differently.

3.       Site Replacement Flexibility / Refunds

Because we work with a “live” inventory there will be times one or more of the sites in your order may need a replacement for various reasons (i.e. the webmaster has rejected your site for content reasons, the PR has changed, the page you are ordering has become full, etc.). We will attempt to contact you with replacement options via e-mail. If we do not hear back from you with your selected replacement(s) within 5 business days we will then select a suitable replacement(s) for you. We will always do our best to ensure the replacement(s) selected will be 1) as closely related as possible 2) the same PR 3) the same or close to the same pricing of your original order. In the event we can not find a suitable replacement of the same PR and price we will properly adjust your billing.

4.       3rd Party

You understand that CampusBlvd.com works with other webmasters to place your links on their sites. We have an agreement with these webmasters to place and maintain links. If at any time a webmaster breaches the agreement, we are not responsible for their actions. This includes removing or moving links without our prior consent or knowledge. It is the responsibility of the client to notify CampusBlvd.com in writing at links@campusblvd.com should they discover a problem with the links they are renting. Should it be determined that the links were not up or modified without the consent of the client; CampusBlvd.com will either provide a replacement link, a credit, or a refund of the amount equivalent to one month’s purchase for that link for the month in which CampusBlvd.com was contacted. 

5.       Contact

You agree not to contact the webmaster or inventory partner of the site where your advertisement is displayed for any reason whatsoever during the term hereof and for a period of two (2) years from the date your campaign has been terminated. All communications, negotiations, and contact must go through CampusBlvd.com. If for any reason you are directly contacted by any Inventory Partner where your sites are placed on or by anyone previously affiliated with Cityopoly Inc. and CampusBlvd.com you agree to inform them of your contractual obligations and notify us immediately. Our inventory partners and anyone previously affiliated with us have also agreed to the same said terms.

6.       Changes to Site after Acceptance

Your site is originally accepted on the grounds that we deem it acceptable for the specific site(s) that your page(s) will be placed on. Once we accept your site for placement, you may not change material elements of the site in a way that can be construed as using questionable SEO techniques that may cause your site and more importantly our inventory partner’s sites to possibly get penalized. In addition, you may not add Adult, Gambling, Pharmaceutical links or content on your site if it was not originally an Adult, Gambling, or Pharmaceutical site when it was accepted.

If we find that you have changed your site to use what we deem as questionable SEO techniques (meaning it would lead to a penalty by Google) or add Adult, Gambling, Pharmaceutical links, we will allow you seven (7) business days to change it or we will be forced to remove your links and you will not be entitled to a refund of any payments we have received up to that point.

7.       Order Process

Upon receipt of payment we will begin to place your order with our inventory partners. You will then begin to receive notification of the location of your rented link(s). Depending on the size of your order it may take up to five business (5) days to place your entire order. On some occasions it may take longer and we will contact you to determine whether you would like a replacement site or wish to wait for that site to place. “.edu” and “special authority site(s)” may take up to 10 days for the link(s) to place from the time payment is received due to the fact that .edu and authority sites are extremely selective and must undergo a review and approval process. If you are purchasing a combination of products, in addition to .edu link(s) and/or special authority site(s), after forty five (45) days from the date your payment was received we will review your account to charge in accordance with the Billing standards stated above. If the link(s) have not been placed, at that point we will charge you for the remainder of your order and adjust your billing once the link(s) have been placed.

Some of our inventory sites may contain “sitewide” linking strategies, particularly news and blog sites. If this is a concern to you please notify us PRIOR to placing your order. 

8.       Link Text Changes

It is the client’s responsibility to verify the link text placed for their link(s) is correct. In the event that there was an error in your link text you are required to contact us immediately or within three (3) business days from the date of placement so that we may correct the text. No refunds will be given as a result of link text errors.

Link text changes are very time consuming to our webmasters and frequent modifications may negatively affect your campaign. Therefore, you are permitted to make three (3) link text changes per link throughout the link’s duration by going to the Active Links tab under your My CampusBlvd account and clicking “Edit”. Link text modifications can take up to five (5) business days to complete. Any additional link text changes are subject to a $20 per link text change fee.

9.       Disclaimers and Limitations of Liability

You agree that Cityopoly Inc. and CampusBlvd.com are not liable or responsible for any penalties, lost income, or legal matters that may arise due to your linking campaign. We cannot control what Google or other search engines consider to be acceptable at any given time.
