Scary Email From Amazon

A couple of hours after I was dancing with glee for making $2.95 from Amazon, Amazon Associates dropped me this scary email:

Thank you for your interest in the Amazon Associates Program.

We have completed our review of your application to the Amazon Associates Program, which included a visit to the website where you planned to create links to our store.

We found you listed the URL for your web site as: https://www.nigelchua.com. Your web site includes the unapproved use of Amazon.com trademarked words, images, or reviews.

We do not allow the use of URLs, trademarks, logos, etc. that include words that are trademarked by Amazon.com LLC. This includes variations or misspellings of any trademarked words. We are therefore unable to approve your application. Accordingly, we have closed the account under which you had been temporarily approved and that approval has now ended.

If your website has been further developed and now contains appropriate content, you are welcome to submit another application by using the following URL:

https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/join

Please review our Operating Agreement for further details:

https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/agreement

We hope to see you again.

Of course I was shocked, and I wrote them back, saying:

Hi Amazon Associates

I'm sorry to hear that - can you advise me which parts are the parts that has unapproved use of Amazon.com trademarked words, images, or reviews?

Do let me know so I know how to amend/correct and update them accordingly, please advise, thanks
