This Referral Program Agreement between You and Careerist governs your participation in the Careerist Referral Program. This program provides Users with an opportunity to direct customers to Careerist as Referrals using a Referral Link. We advise You to read this Agreement carefully. Any capitalized terms used but not defined in Section 8 of this Referral Program Agreement have the meaning provided in the Careerist Platform Agreement. We obtain the right to update and/or replace this Referral Program Agreement by posting a new version on our website.
In order to be eligible to participate in the Referral Program You must follow this Referral Program Agreement and be a Careerist User with a Careerist Account in good standing; a person over 18 years old legally permitted to receive Referral Credits. You are prohibited to participate in the Referral Program if you are a User with a Careerist Account that was terminated for any reason or if you are legally or contractually prohibited to receive Referral Credits. Careerist determines if you violated any provision of this Referral Program Agreement, guidelines related to the Referral Program, or other agreement you have with Careerist.
Permitted to participate in the Referral Program, you will be provided with one or more Referral Links which may be provided to potential Careerist customers. These individuals must use your Referral Links to qualify as a Referral. Careerist has the right to approve or reject any applications submitted by Referrals using any criteria that, in their sole discretion, are considered to be appropriate whether publicized or not. Referrals will not qualify for Referral Credits if they made an attempt to open a Careerist Account at any time, are engaged in activities identified on the Prohibited Activities List, or do not satisfy any criteria we establish for approval. If an application is submitted by another Referral, You will receive a Referral Credit if your Referral Link is associated with the application approved by Careerist.
You can use these Referral Links only in conjunction with this Referral Program. You may not transfer Referral Links or sell them to a third party. In its sole discretion, Careerist may limit Your access or usage of Referral Links, or establish maximum Referral Credits at any time. Careerist owns the right in Referral Links and any content or intellectual property connected with it. You will be provided with any earned Referral Credits by Careerist in the way stated on your referral page (e.g. as points attributed to the Careerist Account or as a gift card). Careerist may withhold the Referral Credits if we believe that you breached this Referral Agreement or other agreements with Careerist. In the case of releasing Referral Credits to a bank card, you agree that the transfer should be made to a bank card which is owned personally by you. Careerist does not make transfers to bank cards of third parties.
Participating in the Referral Program, You agree:
This Referral Program Agreement is effective as of the time you first send or generate a Referral Link and will terminate upon notice by either you or Careerist to the other party. Careerist may terminate this Referral Program Agreement upon notice to you at any point in time at its sole discretion.
By entering this Referral Agreement You have full responsibility for all applicable taxes for all earned Referral Credits under this Agreement, including any withholding requirements that apply to any such taxes, and for compliance with all applicable tax laws. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold Careerist harmless from any liability for, or assessment of, any claims or penalties or interest with respect to such taxes, including any liability for, or assessment of, taxes imposed on Careerist by the relevant taxing authorities with respect to any Referral Credits paid to You or any liability related to the withholding of such taxes.
Referral Credits are considered taxable income and are subject to local, state, and federal taxes. When the value of the Referral Credits you have earned reaches $600 or more in a calendar year, a 1099 tax form will be generated and mailed to you for your tax reporting purposes. In this case to comply with applicable tax requirements and before releasing the Referral Credits, you agree to provide Careerist by its request via email (QB link) within 5 (five) business days with the following information:
