Signed up and paid for 1 year of service for the Live Drive product Feb 2013.
Also signed up for their affiliate program that they say pays affiliates $200 on a $7.95 trail of their prodcut.
I had generated 20 sales and had generated over $4,000 in commissions when on Feb 13h I recieved this email from Live Drive
We are writing to notify you that your affiliate account with Livedrive will be terminated with immediate effect.
Your unacceptable use of the affiliate system is in direct breach of our affiliate terms and conditions. Therefore you will no longer have access to your account nor will you be eligible for any commission payments.

The Affiliate Team
So they terminated my affliate account with a flimsy excuse and will not tell me what specifically of their terms I did violate...but they have no problems in not paying me my $4k in commisions.
They actually terminated the affiliate accounts of every member that I referred..some had done nothing yet except install the software.
Their email posture about the decsion is NOT open for discussion and that I should not atttempt to contact them to discuss this matter speaks ot the integrity of this company...especially the part that I cannot even use the product that I paid for 1 year upfront in advance.
So to recap...4k in commisions that were rightfully earned and now NOT going to be paid and I am no longer able to access the product that I paid 1 year upfront for.
Let what happened to me serve as a lesson to anyone that is considering doing business with Live Drive!
