Amazon Associates Question

Hi to all,

Happy New Year!
I'm planning to build some sites for the amazon associates program.
I've read that only the top level domain and sub domains are not permitted to have "amazon" and the other trademarks of Amazon.

Just to be sure, I'd like to ask if it's okay to include "amazon", etc. to the rest of the url, or also on the Page title.

for example:
url: http://www.samplesite.com/amazon/product-page
title: "Product" in Amazon (something like this)

I might have missed something on the Associates TOS.

Thanks!

    Why don't you just contact Amazon?

    I've always found them quite helpful and quick to respond.

    From my experience its completly okay. As 'Amazon' is not in your TLD, you are good to go.

    I believe it's okay to do that.

    They do not want Amazon or any brand name keywords in your TLD.

      Some of my sites have a similar structure with www. mysite.com/amazonreview/... I have never had a problem with it.
