INK GAMES Referral Program Rules
Last Updated: February 9, 2020
These INK GAMES Referral Program Rules (“Program Rules”) govern your participation in the INK GAMES Referral Program. The Program Rules are in addition to any agreements between you and INK GAMES, including the INK GAMES Terms of Service, as applicable (collectively, the “INK GAMES Terms”). The INK GAMES Terms are incorporated by reference and shall apply to your participation in the INK GAMES Referral Program, including, if necessary, to resolve any disputes between you and INK GAMES related to or arising out of the Referral Program.
The INK GAMES Referral Program (“Referral Program”) is offered by INK GAMES, and its Ambassadors (together referred to as “INK GAMES”) and provides Users who are interested in referring their family and friends (“Referrers”) the opportunity to refer eligible individuals to join the INK GAMES community as new users. These Program Rules apply to both referrers and referred Users, so please read carefully to understand your respective rights and obligations.
To be eligible to participate in the Referral Program as a referrer, you must (a) be a legal resident of your country; (b) be the age of majority in your territory of residence; and (c) maintain an INK GAMES account in good standing. Referrers may be Users or Influencers. A single person may use the INK GAMES Platform in several ways (for example, as a User or Influencer). However, if you violate the Referral Program Rules or any applicable Terms of Service, INK GAMES may suspend or terminate your ability to participate in the Referral Program under any or all of your accounts. For example, if you are a User and Influencer, and you engage in prohibited referral activity, INK GAMES may terminate your ability to participate in the Referral Program under all of your INK GAMES accounts.
INK GAMES Codes
Under the Referral Program, INK GAMES may provide you with a unique alphanumeric code (“INK GAMES Code”) to distribute to eligible individuals to become new Users or Influencers. INK GAMES may also provide you the ability to create additional INK GAMES Codes. INK GAMES owns all rights in and to any INK GAMES Code whether provided to you or created by you. You acknowledge and agree that: (a) INK GAMES may limit the number of INK GAMES Codes you may create or are made available to you, (b) you have no ownership rights in any form over the INK GAMES Codes, and (c) INK GAMES may reclaim, deactivate, invalidate or terminate your INK GAMES Code at any time at its discretion.
How To Refer New Users
a. Referred Users or Influencers
Through the INK GAMES Referral app, you may refer eligible individuals to become new Users or Influencers on the INK GAMES Platform. In order to be eligible for a Referral Reward (defined below) for a new User, the person must (i) have never previously created a INK GAMES account; (ii) be at least thirteen years of age and (iii) satisfy the applicable Reward Criteria, as discussed below. If these conditions are met, the person shall be considered your “Referred User.”
b. Invitations through the INK GAMES Platform
c. Other Invitations
You may also invite eligible individuals to become new Users by distributing your INK GAMES Code directly and instructing them to manually input your INK GAMES Code into the INK GAMES App. A User will not be able to apply your INK GAMES Code if (i) they’ve already applied another User’s INK GAMES Code or a different promotion code, (ii) they’ve already received INK GAMES credit from INK GAMES or another source on their User account prior to entry of your INK GAMES Code. If a User does not enter your INK GAMES Code you will not receive attribution for the referral and they will not be considered your Referred User. INK GAMES reserves the right to supply new Users with INK GAMES credit or sign-on bonuses at its discretion.
You are eligible to earn a referral incentive (“Referral Reward”) for each Referred User that you refer to the INK GAMES Platform (subject to certain maximum limits and the other terms in these Referral Program Rules). As discussed above, in order to qualify as your Referred User or Referred User, the new User must satisfy the applicable Reward Criteria. The Reward Criteria are set by INK GAMES in its sole discretion and are subject to change at any time. The Reward Criteria may vary by market or within a particular market. INK GAMES, at its sole discretion, may make available certain promotions with different Reward Criteria or Referral Rewards to other Users or prospective Users. These promotions, unless offered to you, shall have no bearing whatsoever on your Agreement or relationship with INK GAMES.
If the new User that you refer satisfies the Reward Criteria, the type of Reward you are eligible to receive may depend on (i) which INK GAMES User account you used to refer the new user (in general, Users and Influencers can earn cash for Referred Users paid out in their monthly payment. (ii) the INK GAMES region associated with your INK GAMES account, (iii) the INK GAMES region associated with the Referred User when they apply your INK GAMES Code, or (iv) other factors as determined and communicated by INK GAMES in its sole discretion.
b. Earning Rewards For Referred Users Or Influencers
New Users or Influencers you refer may receive INK GAMES credit upon creating their new INK GAMES account (“Referral Credit”). Referral Credit is only valid for use on the INK GAMES Platform and is transferable or redeemable for cash according to criteria set up by INK GAMES. Referral Credit may contain certain restrictions such as geographical use limitations, which will be communicated to the new User. New Users or Influencers will be able to check the Promos tab within their INK GAMES app (when active) to determine whether they have Referral Credit and any restrictions on its use. All terms and conditions for the distribution and use of Referral Credit are determined by INK GAMES in its sole discretion.
c. Resolving Disputes Over Referrals
Only one person can earn a Referral Reward for a single Referred User or Referred User. In the event that multiple persons claim credit for a particular referral, INK GAMES has full discretion to determine which person earned such referral according to INK GAMES’s systems.
d. Reservation Of Rights
INK GAMES reserves the right to withhold or deduct Referral Rewards or Referral Credit obtained through the Referral Program in the event that INK GAMES determines or believes that the receipt of the Referral Reward or Referral Credit was in error, fraudulent, illegal, or in violation of these Referral Program Rules or any other applicable agreement between you and INK GAMES.
