What is a parasite? What is your policy regarding parasites?
The term "parasite" refers to technology (including browser plug ins, helpers, popups, etc.) that intercepts and changes or alters in any way an affiliate link. Such technology is also known as "unsolicited commercial software" and is commonly found in Adware and Spyware. Parasite activity essentially "hijacks" affiliate links, and can redirect affiliate commissions to the parasite source. Malicious softwares like these are normally installed secretly/unknowingly, and almost always without user or affiliate consent.
