Pond5 Referral Program Terms & Conditions
As a Pond5 Member, you can send a Program link with a free $10 Pond5 credit (a "Friend Credit") to any or all of your friends, family, co-workers and other personal contacts who have not already or previously signed up to be a Pond5 Member (personally or on behalf of a company, organization or other entity) (a "Friend"). If the referred Friend clicks on the link and using the link within 30 days, (i) creates a valid Pond5 account that complies with the Website Terms and provides all required information, and (ii) spends at least $15 for Pond5 Content (only $10 of which may be paid using the Friend Credit or any other form of Pond5 credit), you will earn the $25 rewards credit towards your future Pond5 purchases (the "Pond5 Reward Credit").
The Pond5 Reward Credit will be available to you to spend when the Friend purchase transaction is complete, fully paid for and not subject to a charge-back, and the Friend does not ask for or receive a refund. Pond5 Reward Credits that you earn will appear as a coupon on your checkout page and must be used on a purchase from the Website within one year from the date they were issued. After one year, the Pond5 Reward Credits will expire.
Referrals should only be made for personal and non-commercial purposes, and Program links should only be sent to persons with whom you have a pre-existing personal relationship who you have good reason to believe will appreciate receiving the referral. Program links may not be sent as part of spam or publically displayed, published, broadcast or distributed, including on coupon websites, Reddit, or Wikipedia. You may not use any Program links in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair the Website or any other site or interfere with any other party's use and enjoyment of the Website, their own site or their use of Program links.
Your and the Friends' right to receive or use any credits available under the Program is conditioned upon you providing the information required by our account process, where required clicking though your acceptance of these Terms and the Website Terms in the place provided by us and complying with the same and your compliance with these terms.
Pond5 reserves the right to (i) change, suspend or terminate the Program at any time and for any reason by posting notice of the same on the Website, and/or (ii) refuse, suspend or terminate any Pond5 Member purchase transaction or account or any person's ability to participate in the Program, in its discretion, without notice or any communication to you. We will not be required to provide you with any information or updates regarding the Friend, except to confirm the Pond5 Reward Credit.
In order to qualify as an effective referral under the Program the Friend must have cookies (including the cookie that was placed on their computer when clicking on the Program Link (the "Program Cookie")) enabled and not expired on his/her browser when clicking on the Program link, when accessing the Website, when completing the Pond5 account sign-up process, when purchasing a license to Content from the Website (otherwise we can't track it).
Pond5 Reward Credits may not be transferred to anyone and may not be redeemed for money. In addition, Pond5 Reward Credits accrued in multiple Pond5 accounts cannot be combined into one Pond5 account, and no person (personally or on behalf of a company, organization or other entity) will be entitled to more than one Friend Credit. We will be entitled to determine in our sole good faith discretion any questions as to who, if anyone, made an effective referral for a person or is eligible to receive a credit under the Program.
