Referral Program Terms and Conditions
Referral Program Terms and Conditions
Novolink, Inc., operator of ShopNovolink.com and Novolink LS app (“Novolink” or “We”) offers brand supporters (“Referrer” or “You”) the opportunity to participate in its referral program (the “Program”). The Program is administered by Novolink. Novolink reserves the right to amend or terminate the Program at any time, for any reason without prior notice.
Referrers are bound by these Terms and Conditions by participating in the Program. By participating in the Program, Referrers agree to use the Program in the manner specified in these Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions in their entirety, you are not authorized to register as a Referrer or to participate in the Program in any other manner. Referrers may not participate in the Program where doing so would be in violation of any applicable law or regulations or prohibited by any preexisting contractual obligation.
Novolink reserves the right to modify or amend at any time these Terms and Conditions and/or the methods through which rewards are earned. We reserve the right to disqualify any Referrers from participation in the Program at any time at our sole discretion, including without limitation if he/she does not comply with any of these Terms and Conditions or otherwise fails to comply with any applicable laws (including, without limitation, through any failure to include any disclosures as required by the FTC or otherwise required by Novolink).
I. How the Program Works
A. General Terms.
To participate in the Program, Referrers should open the Novolink LS app and follow the on-screen instructions to refer friends to the program by entering their email address, or displaying to the Friend their unique QR code. Referrer’s friend whose email address had been entered, or who reads the Referrer’s unique QR code, will receive invitation to purchase the referred Novolink product.
Individuals who receive a referral via a Referrer are "Friends" or a “Friend”. An "Eligible" Referrer who is fully compliant with these Terms and Conditions may receive "Reward(s)" for every "Qualified Referral” (all terms in quotes to be understood as defined below).
By participating in the Program, a Referrer represents that he or she has her Friends’ prior consent to provide their contact information.
B. Eligible Referrer
To be "Eligible," a Referrer must:
- Be a legal resident of the United States of America; and
- Be at least 18 years old. No part of the program is directed to persons under the age of 18. IF YOU ARE UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE, YOU MAY NOT USE, ACCESS OR PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM AT ANY TIME OR IN ANY MANNER.
C. Making a Referral
A Referrer must register using the Novolink LS smart device application to make a referral. No previous purchase is required (purchasers and non-purchasers alike are eligible). Once a Referrer refers a Friend, he/she will be contacted if a Qualified Referral is made by the referred Friend within 12 months.
Referrers may only refer real individuals who meet the requirements of these Terms and Conditions. A Referrer may not create multiple or fake accounts with Novolink or participate in the Program using multiple or fake email addresses or identities.
Referrers cannot refer themselves.
D. Qualified Referrals
A “Qualified Referral” means that all the following conditions are met:
- The Friend completed the purchase of a Qualified Product in one order using the referral link and through ShopNovolink.com. If a Friend purchases from or registers with Novolink using any other method, the registration will not count as a Qualified Referral and the Referrer will not earn Credit.
- The Friend referred to the Novolink Referral Program may only use one referral link.
- The Friend had not previously made a purchase with Novolink using another referral link. If a Friend receives links from multiple ShopNovolink.com users, only the Referrer of the first order by the Friend will received a referral reward.
- The Friend is a legal resident of the United States of America and at least 18 years old.
- Any additional or subsequent purchases made by a Friend will not be considered Qualified Referrals and thus not be entitled to the benefits of Qualified Referrals.
E. Earning Rewards
Referrer shall receive one (1) reward (each, a “Reward”) in the form and value determined by Novolink for each verified Qualified Referral generated by Referrer.
Rewards may be redeemed in various forms in Novolink’s sole discretion, including, but not limited to in the form of: Credit that, in accumulation, can be exchanged for Novolink products or ShopNovolink.com store credit.
F. Verified Qualified Referrals
Rewards are subject to verification. Novolink may delay a Reward for the purposes of investigation. Novolink may also refuse to verify and process any transaction Novolink deems, in its sole discretion, to be fraudulent, suspicious, in violation of these Terms and Conditions, or believes will impose potential liability on Novolink, its subsidiaries, affiliates or any of their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents. All of Novolink's decisions are final and binding, including decisions as to whether a Qualified Referral, or Reward is verified.
G. Claiming Rewards
When a Friend make a purchase through your referral link, you will receive a notification informing you someone made a purchase using your link, automatically. We will review the referred order within 35 days from the date of purchase for verification and qualification of the referral. Once a referred purchase is verified, you will receive notification in the Novolink LS application to collect your referral reward.
II. Privacy Notice.
Referrers may participate in the Program made available by Novolink in order to refer their Friends to Novolink as potential new Novolink customers. To do this, Referrers must necessarily submit personal information about themselves and their Friends, such as name and e-mail address information, so that Novolink can send communications to the Friends on the Referrers’ behalf. The personal information will be collected, processed and used in accordance with Novolink’s Privacy Statement, which can be found at https://shopnovolink.com/pages/privacy-policy.
