From this page, you can edit/change your Affiliate and Sub-Affiliate keywords, and change your cookie settings. By default you will see “affid” for your affiliate keyword, “sid” for your sub-affiliate keyword, and “30” days as your default lifespan. These can all be changed as necessary to meet your specific needs.
