1. Himarac Affiliate Program is not an investment and was never an investment, we have gotten various reports of members tagging their payments as an “Investment”.

2. On the Information page created for the Affiliate Program, it was clearly stated that “Terms & Conditions” apply to the the program, and we take our Terms of service very seriously. Also, I believe that Terms & Condition was made available to all users during registration & checkout process, of which we believe was read, digested before agreeing to it.
