Effective Date: October 24, 2018
- Definitions. “Eligible Referrer” is (a) a legal resident of the fifty (50) United States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, who is 18 years of age or older; or (b) a business operating in the United States. Existing and former Brokermint customers cannot refer themselves, neither can businesses and their employees. Brokermint Partner Program participants are ineligible for a Reward.
“Eligible New Customer” is an individual or business that (a) is not currently in the sales funnels; (b) signs up for a Brokermint plan while this Referral Program is still active; and (c) maintains an active Brokermint account in good standing for at least sixty (60) days after activation of Eligible New Customer’s account in compliance with the relevant Terms of Service.
“Parties” are Eligible Referrer and Brokermint.
- Scope. Eligible Referrer will refer to Brokermint Eligible New Customers in exchange for a Reward.
- Referrals. Registration for the Referral Program can be made via the Brokermint Referral form. (https://brokermint.com/referral-program). To be eligible for a Reward, an Eligible Referrer must identify Eligible New Customers directly to the Brokermint via an Eligible Referrer by submitting them directly to Brokermint via the referral form provided by Brokermint. Sending mass email messages (to multiple recipients at the same time) is strictly prohibited. When referring customers, Eligible Referrer must always disclose that Eligible Referrer is participating in this Referral Program and create posts and emails in a personal manner that is appropriate and customary for communications with friends, colleagues, family members and business associates. any invitation to a potential new Brokermint customer must comply with all applicable laws including, but not limited to, CAN-SPAM.
Should an Eligible New Customer be referred by more than one Eligible Referrer, only the original Eligible Referrer validated by Brokermint shall be entitled to be considered to receive all or any portion of the Reward. Referrals are considered active for one (1) year and shall expire after such time. If a prospective Brokermint customer has neither activated nor installed Brokermint products or services within one (1) year after the Eligible Referrer submits a referral, said referral shall expire and the requisite Eligible Referrer shall not be entitled to a Reward if the prospective Brokermint customer subsequently purchases Brokermint products or services.
Brokermint also reserves the right to disqualify and deregister any Referrer in the event that Brokermint determines that Referrer has violated any of these Rules, which determination shall be final. In the event of such disqualification or deregistration, Referrer forfeits the rights to receive, and Brokermint is not obligated to honor or pay any Rewards which vest on or after the date of such effective disqualification or deregistration.
- Reward. Rewards is $500 split in two payments, first $250 paid when referral becomes Eligible New Customer, additional $250 paid when Eligible New Customer maintains an active Brokermint account in good standing for sixty (60) days after activation of Eligible New Customer’s account.
If there is a preferred Reward issuance method within the Program (e.g., cash or account credit), it is the sole responsibility of the Eligible Referrer to promptly communicate the desired method of Reward issuance to firstname.lastname@example.org If no specific election of Reward issuance method has been made, the Reward will be issued to the Eligible Referrer in the form of a check. A W-9 form must be completed, submitted and approved for all Rewards, regardless of method, and the W-9 form must match the name of the person or company receiving the reward. If a valid and complete W-9 form has not been received and approved within sixty (60) days after registering for the Referral Program, the Reward shall be deemed forfeited.
In the event the Eligible Referrer’s account has a past due balance (in the case where the Eligible Referrer is a Brokermint customer), Brokermint may elect to offset the Reward against any such past due balance.
- Brokermint Marks. Referrer acknowledges that Brokermint’s names, logos, trademarks, service marks and other intellectual property (and the names of certain products and packages that are provided by Brokermint) (collectively, “Brokermint Marks”) are the exclusive property of Brokermint and that you do not have any proprietary rights therein.
