Referral Program Terms

Last updated: June 06, 2019

Under the Mercating’s Salesfinity Referral Program, partners and visitors of Mercating.com (the “Advocate”) are invited to earn Referral Rewards (“Rewards”) by inviting Referees (as described below) to purchase a Professional Subscription Plan of our Salesfinity Solution. The following Salesfinity Referral Program Terms (“Referral Terms”) apply to the Advocate and Referees (together referred to as the “Participants”) participating in the Salesfinity Referral Program (“Referral Program”).

Mercating™ may suspend, terminate, or change the terms and requirements of the Referral Terms at any time and for any reason. Mercating™ shall honor any Referral Rewards already earned before such change, suspension, or termination occurs.

Information about the Referee

By participating in the Referral Program, the Referee acknowledges that Mercating™ may, at its sole discretion, share the Referee’s first name and status of the Eligible Subscription in the Advocates user account setting to inform the Advocate about the status of the earned Referral Reward. Mercating™ shall not share the accommodation name or specific check-in/check-out dates. If you do not want the Advocate to receive the information about you, please do not finalize the Referral Form after clicking on the Referral Link. Mercating™ will stop your participation in the Referral Program.

Eligibility

Participants must be at least 18 years old, working within the industrial sector, or managing a website or blog related to manufacturing. Only individuals from the states of California, USA, and Mexico are directly eligible for this program.
Staff members of Mercating, and its affiliates, as well as participants (including their representatives and staff members) of other marketing programs of Mercating™, are excluded from participation. Participants need to be natural persons.

Referral Reward

Advocates can earn Rewards as follow:

  • The Advocate must have an account in Mercating.com that complies with our Terms of Service.
  • The Advocate must send an e-mail to Mercating™, providing the contact information of the potential Referees. The contact information must include, at least, the full name, occupation, e-mail, and company name.
  • The Advocate shares the referral link or information of Salesfinity Solutions https://mercating.com/collections/salesfinity to their potential Referees. Participants are not entitled to use the Referral Link for any promotions, including online advertising.
  • The Referee, in this case, the company representative, usually, a director, manager, or buyer, purchases a Professional Subscription Plan via the Mercating.com website after receiving the referral link or information.
  • The Referee purchases the Professional Subscription Plan for over three consecutive months; the minimum period required to consider a Subscription as “Eligible.”
  • The Advocate is rewarded within a reasonable time after the stay, getting an account, and submitted the contact information.

Mercating™ will only recognize one Eligible Subscription per Referee to count for a Referral Reward. Referees must always be different people. There is no maximum of Referral Rewards an Advocate can earn. The Referral Program can only be used for personal, non-commercial purposes.

Rewards notices

Mercating™ will confirm, in its sole discretion, when the Advocate has earned the Reward if it has determined that the Advocate and Referee have complied with and fulfilled the Referral Terms.

Mercating™ will notify via e-mail the Advocate who earned whether a Free Professional Subscription Plan or an Amazon Gift Card.

The Free Professional Subscription Plan not redeemed within 13 months after its confirmation by Mercating.com will automatically expire. The Amazon Gift Card will expire based on Amazon Gift Card Terms and Conditions.

Participants cannot transfer, sell, or exchange for cash or money their Referral Reward.

Mercating.com retains the right to, at its sole discretion, review the compliance with the Referral Terms.

Referral links

The Advocate will not share or publish the Referral Links or any information on Salesfinity Solution where there is no reasonable basis for believing that recipients are genuine industrial members, and appreciate the invitation stated through the Referral Link, and not in violation of applicable anti-spam laws.
The Advocate will indemnify and hold Mercating™, its directors, officers, employees, shareholders, agents, and successors harmless, from and against any claims that may arise from any unlawful forwarding or sharing of the Referral Link or Information.

Anti-bribery

By sharing the Referral Link, creating an Eligible Subscription, and being eligible for the Referral Reward, each Participant agrees to and accepts the following anti-bribery terms:

You are not a government official. “Government officials” include any government employee, candidate for public office, and any employee of (a wholly or partly) government-owned or government-controlled company, public international organization, and political party (including any official or representative thereof).

Government officials are not eligible for the referral bonus. You must immediately inform us if you are a government official. In respect to (or as an award for) the referral activities (including the solicitation of new users, accommodations, and/or the promotion and marketing of Mercating.com) and the Referral Bonus, you will (i) not directly or indirectly (a) offer, promise, or give to any third party (including any governmental official or political party (‘s official, representative or candidate)), or (b) seek, accept, or get promised for itself of for another party, any gift, payment, reward, consideration, or benefit of any kind that would or could be construed as bribery or an illegal or corrupt practice, and (ii) comply with all applicable laws governing anti-bribery and corrupt gifts and practices.

Miscellaneous

Mercating™ retains the right to investigate your participation in the Referral Program for any fraudulent activities and take the necessary measures to end them. These measures may include that Mercating™ can, at its discretion, cancel an Eligible Subscription. Referral Rewards earned through fraudulent activities or activities in violation of these Referral Terms will be null and void, and Mercating™ may request repayment.

If any provision of these terms is or becomes invalid, unenforceable, or non-binding, you will remain bound by all other provisions hereof. In such an event, invalid provisions will nonetheless be enforced fully permitted by applicable law, and each Participant will at least agree to accept a similar effect as the invalid, unenforceable, or non-binding provision given the contents and purpose of these terms and conditions.

To the extent permitted by law, these Referral Terms shall be exclusively governed by and construed by the laws of Mexico. Any disputes arising out of or in connection with these Referral Terms shall be exclusively submitted to and dealt with by the competent court in Mexico City.
