No part of the Program or the Service is directed to persons under the age of 18. IF YOU ARE UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE, PLEASE DO NOT USE OR ACCESS THE PROGRAM OR THE SERVICE AT ANY TIME OR IN ANY MANNER.
Individuals may participate in the Program to recommend the Services to their friends, family or colleagues ("Users"). To do this, Users must necessarily submit personal information about themselves and their friends, family members or colleagues, such as name and e-mail address information, so that Gazelle can send these recommendations on their behalf. The personal information will be collected, processed and used in accordance with Company’s Privacy Statement, which can be found at http://www.gazelle.com/privacy_policy. In addition, personal information may be used by Gazelle to contact Users with regards to their participation in the Program and to receive other communications from Gazelle. Where a User provides personal information about its friends, family members or colleagues to receive communications via the Program, the provided personal information will be used by Gazelle for sending these communications on behalf of the User and User understands that Company may send out additional follow-up communications on behalf of the User to encourage or remind the friends, family members or colleagues to complete the purchase or registration process.
2. How the Program Works.
To participate, visit http://gazelle.extole.com and follow the on-screen instructions to refer friends, family members or colleagues to the Service by entering their names and email addresses in the "Refer A Friend" box.
Users who refer are called "Referrers." Individuals who receive a referral are called "Referred Customers." An "eligible" Referrer who is fully compliant with these Terms and Conditions may receive "Reward(s)" for every "Qualified Referral", as defined below.
Making a Referral
An individual must register at http://gazelle.extole.com/micro/microsite to make a referral, but no purchase is required. Once an individual refers a friend, family member or colleague, he/she becomes a Referrer and will be provided with a unique referral link ("Personal Link") that allows the Referrer to receive credit for Qualified Referrals ("Credit"). Personal Links will be issued only to individuals. Each Referrer will also be provided with a unique and personal Gazelle "Refer-a-Friend" page or account to view the status of his/her Qualified Referrals and manage his/her account.
Referrers must respect the spirit of the Program by only referring real individuals who meet the requirements of these Terms and Conditions. Referrers cannot refer themselves. For example, a Referrer may not create multiple or fake accounts with Gazelle or participate in the Program using multiple or fake email addresses or identities.
Eligible Referrer. To be "eligible," a Referrer must:
1) be a legal resident of the United States of America; and
2) be at least 18 years old.
Employees of Gazelle, its Service Provider or any of its or their subsidiaries, affiliates or promotional agencies, including immediate family and household members, are not eligible.
Qualified Referrals. A Qualified Referral means that all the following conditions are met, as determined by Gazelle and/or the Service Provider in their sole discretion:
The Referred Customer completed a purchase or trade in using the Service through the Referrer's "Personal Link", in an amount in excess of USD $25.00. If a Referred Customer sales or registers with the Service using any other link or method, the registration will not count as a Qualified Referral and the Referrer will not earn Credit;
The Referred Customer was not previously registered with the Service under any email address or alias;
The Referred Customer is a) a legal resident of the United States of America and b) at least 18 years old; and
Only one Qualified Referral can be earned for each Referred Customer during the operation of the Program.
Any additional or subsequent purchases made by a Referred Customer will not be Qualified Referrals.
The value of the Referred Customer's trade-in or purchase must be greater than twenty five dollars (USD $25.00).
The Referred Customer is a new Gazelle customer.
Credit for Qualified Referrals. Credit can only be awarded for Qualified Referrals.
Earning Rewards. Referrer shall receive one (1) Reward valued at ten dollar (USD$10.00) for each verified Qualified Referral generated by Referrer. A Referrer may not earn more than twenty (24) Qualified Referrals per calendar year or more than six hundred dollars ($240) in Rewards per calendar year.
Each $10 Referral Reward will be sent to the Referrer in the form of a Virtual Visa® Reward card. Restrictions may apply. For example, if the Reward is in the form of a gift card, gift certificate or voucher, it may be subject to the issuer’s terms and conditions.
Verified Qualified Referrals. Rewards are subject to verification. Gazelle may delay a Reward for the purposes of investigation. They may also refuse to verify and process any transaction Gazelle deems, in its sole discretion, to be fraudulent, suspicious, in violation of these Terms and Conditions, or believes will impose potential liability on Gazelle, its subsidiaries, affiliates or any of their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents.
*All of Gazelle’s decisions are final and binding, including decisions as to whether a Qualified Referral, Credit or Reward is verified.
Transfer and Value of Credit and Rewards. Credit and Rewards have no monetary value and may not be redeemed for cash. Credit and Rewards are not transferable and may not be auctioned, traded, bartered or sold. Upon termination of the Program or any portion thereof for any reason, or upon cancellation of a Referrer’s Gazelle account for any reason, any unredeemed Credit and Rewards accumulated by the Referrer are forfeited.
Conduct. If a solution cannot be found to restore the integrity of the Program after the occurrence of prohibited conduct, we reserve the right to cancel, change, or suspend the Program. Users agree not to use the Program to:
Violate applicable law;
Infringe the intellectual property rights of Gazelle, its Service Provider or any third parties;
Stalk, harass, or harm another individual;
Collect or store personal data about other Users;
Impersonate any person or otherwise misrepresent User's identity;
Interfere with, disrupt or violate the Terms and Conditions, Service Terms or servers or networks connected to the Program; or disobey any requirements, procedures, policies, or regulations of such networks;
Interfere with another User's use of the Program;
Attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Program, other accounts, computer systems, or networks connected to the Program;
Transmit any file that contains viruses, worms, Trojan horses, or any other contaminating or destructive features;
Conduct any illegal activity or solicit the performance of any illegal activity or other activity that infringes the rights of others;
Resell, barter, trade, auction or otherwise generate income by providing access to the Program to others
Bulk Distribution ("Spam"). If a Referrer provides a Personal Link to a Referred Customer by email, the email must be created and distributed in a personal manner that is appropriate and customary for communications with friends, colleagues and family members. By submitting the email addresses, the Referrer represents that he/she has their prior consent. Bulk email distribution, distribution to strangers, or any other promotion of a Personal Link in a manner that would constitute or appear to constitute unsolicited commercial email or "spam" in Gazelle's sole discretion is expressly prohibited and may be grounds for immediate termination of the Referrer’s account and deactivation of the Personal Link. We have a no tolerance spam policy.
Gazelle has no obligation to monitor the content provided by Users; however, Gazelle may choose to do so and block any email messages, remove any such content, or prohibit any use of the Program. Each Referrer is the actual sender of the emails and must comply with applicable law. Referrers who do not comply with the law, including anti-spam laws, are obligated to indemnify the Program Entities against any liabilities, costs and expenses it incurs as a results of such spam.
Fraudulent and Suspicious Behavior. Gazelle may prohibit a User from participating in the Program or receiving a Credit or Reward, in their sole discretion, if they determine such User is attempting to undermine the fairness, integrity or legitimate operation of the Program in any way by cheating, hacking, deception, or any other unfair playing practices of intending to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other users or representatives of the Gazelle. Use of any automated system, script, or macro to participate is strictly prohibited and will result in disqualification.
Users may not enter with multiple or fake emails addresses or accounts, use fictitious identities or use any system, bot, crawler or other device or artifice to participate in the Program or receive a Reward. Gazelle reserves the right to disqualify any User and/or cancel any Reward(s) if they find a User to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Program or violating these Terms and Conditions.
Sign-In Credentials. To see the personal Gazelle "Refer-a-Friend" page or account or to use the Program, Users will need to sign in with their credentials. Users are responsible for maintaining the confidentially of their sign-in credentials and are fully responsible for all activities that occur through the use of them. Users agree to notify Gazelle immediately if they believe the confidentiality of their sign-in credentials has been compromised or if they suspect unauthorized use of their account. Users agree that Gazelle will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from unauthorized use of their credentials.
*Gazelle reserves the right to cancel or suspend the Program should it determine, in its sole discretion, that the administration, security or fairness of the Program has been compromised in any way.
