How does the referral program work?

  • How does the referral program work?

    Students who wish to refer a friend can simply copy a referral link from their account and send it to the individual they are referring. To be eligible for the referral incentive (a $100 Amazon Gift Card for the referrer and a $100 tuition savings for the referred student), the referred student must use your unique referral link to schedule a consultation call with our team. Referral incentives will be administered only if your friend enrolls in the Academy or Scholarship Support Package.

  • How do I refer a friend?

    You can navigate to your account to find a referral link. Copy your link and send it to your friend!

  • How many people can I refer?

    You can refer as many friends as you'd like!

  • When will I receive my incentive?

    Upon successful referral, you will be notified via email that your referral has been successful and will receive a $100 Amazon Gift Card within 3-5 business days.

  • I have previously referred a friend and they signed up for the platform, am I eligible for the referral incentive?

    Unfortunately, we are unable to administer referral incentives retroactively. To be eligible for the referral incentive, the referred student must schedule a consultation with our team using your referral link.

  • Who will receive the gift card?

    The gift card will be administered to the email address associated with the user account belonging to the referral code used.

GRANTME REFERRAL PROGRAM TERMS & CONDITIONS

Last Updated: [07/09/21]

BY PARTICIPATING IN THE GRANTME REFERRAL PROGRAM (THE “PROGRAM”), YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS (“TERMS”) STATED HEREIN, WHICH ARE IN ADDITION TO AND SUBJECT TO GRANTME’S TERMS OF USE AND PRIVACY POLICY, AND TO COMPLY WITH ALL APPLICABLE LAWS AND REGULATIONS.  IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, PLEASE DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM.  GRANTME EDUCATION CONSULTING, INC. (“GRANTME”) RESERVES THE RIGHT TO MODIFY OR TERMINATE THE PROGRAM AT ANY TIME AND IN ANY MANNER, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, AS OUTLINED BELOW. 

ELIGIBILITY 

Anyone may be a referrer in the Program (“Advocate”) so long as (a) you are a legal resident of Canada; and (b) you have a GrantMe account in good standing.  The Program is void elsewhere and where prohibited. Employees, officers and directors of GrantMe, along with businesses, corporations or other entities of any kind, are eligible to participate in the Program only at the discretion of GrantMe.  

HOW TO PARTICIPATE AND REDEEM REWARD 

To participate in the Program as an Advocate, you must refer a friend or family member who has not previously paid for GrantMe services (“Friend”).   

Advocates may make referrals by logging into their GrantMe account, navigating to https://app.grantme.ca/matching-criteria/student, and following the on-screen instructions to refer Friends by:

1.   Advocate copies their unique referral link (“Referral Link”) and shares it with Friends via the Advocate’s personal communication channels, such as email, social media, or short message service (SMS); such message is referred to herein as a “Referral Message.”   In each Referral Message, Advocate must clearly explain that he or she will receive a reward for each Friend that makes an eligible purchase using the Referral Link.  Failure to make this disclosure is a violation of these Terms and may result in your immediate termination from the Program, disqualification from future participation, and forfeiture of any reward owed to you as a result of your participation in the Program.   

If a Friend enrolls in GrantMe’s Academy Program or Scholarship Support Package (as defined below), using an Advocate’s Referral Link, then the Friend will receive a reward (“Friend Reward”) that consists of a $100 discount on the advertised price of GrantMe’s Academy Program or Scholarship Support Package.  In turn, for every Friend that redeems a Friend Reward in this manner, the Advocate who referred such Friend will receive a $100 Amazon Gift Card. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Advocate Rewards may only be applied to a new purchase of a GrantMe’s Academy Program or Scholarship Support Package (as defined below).

TERMS OF REDEEMING REWARD 

Advocate Rewards and Friend Rewards (collectively the “Rewards” and each, a “Reward”) cannot be sold, transferred, or redeemed for cash, and they may not be combined with other offers, promotions or discounts.  

Limit: There is no limit to the Reward redemptions per person.

Redemption of Rewards is predicate on the enrollment of the Friend into GrantMe’s Academy program (“Academy Program”) or Scholarship Support Package ("Scholarship Support Package").

In the event that a Friend receives multiple Referral Links, GrantMe will only provide Rewards for the first Referral Link through which the Friend makes an eligible purchase.  This means that if multiple Advocates refer the same Friend, only one of those Advocates will be entitled to receive an Advocate Reward ( i.e., the Advocate whose Referral Link is used first by the Friend to make an eligible purchase) and the Friend will only receive one Friend Reward; all other referrals will automatically be invalidated. 

Rewards are subject to verification.  GrantMe reserves the right to delay or refuse to issue a Reward for reasons that GrantMe may deem relevant, such as noncompliance with the Terms or any deceptive behavior.  

PROHIBITION ON BULK DISTRIBUTION (“SPAM”)

An Advocate’s Referral Link may not be shared, sold, or used in any way except to obtain Advocate Reward(s), and it must be used only for personal and non-commercial purposes.  

If an Advocate sends a Referral Message, such Advocate is considered the actual sender of the Referral Message and must comply with all applicable laws and regulations (collectively, “Relevant Laws”), including without limitation the CAN-SPAM Act.  Referral Messages must be created and distributed in a personal, non-commercial manner that is appropriate and customary for communications with friends and family members. By sending a Referral Message, the Advocate represents that he or she has the appropriate permission and consent to send such Referral Message to their Friend(s).  Bulk distribution of Referral Messages, distribution to strangers, or any other conduct that is contrary to these Terms or to the spirit of the Program is expressly prohibited and may be grounds for immediate termination and further legal action. Advocates who do not comply with the Relevant Laws are obligated to indemnify GrantMe and its parent companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, representatives, consultants, contractors, website providers, and their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives, and agents against any liabilities, costs and expenses it incurs as a result of such non-compliance with Relevant Laws.

RESTRICTIONS

Exploiting the Program or assisting others to exploit the Program is strictly prohibited, and will result in disqualification from the Program.  Advocates cannot refer themselves or create multiple, fictitious or fake accounts with GrantMe. In addition, Advocates and Friends may not (i) use the Program to violate any law, infringe or violate the rights of any third party, or otherwise act in a manner that is deemed unfair, disruptive, harassing, harmful, illegal, hateful, obscene or outside the spirit and intent of the Program; (ii) tamper with the Program; (iii) collect or harvest any personally identifiable information from the Program or associated website(s); or (iv) use any system, bot or other device or artifice to participate or receive any benefit in the Program.  CAUTION: ANY ATTEMPT TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE PROGRAM MAY BE IN VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS. SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, GRANTME RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK REMEDIES AND DAMAGES (INCLUDING ATTORNEY FEES) TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW, INCLUDING CRIMINAL PROSECUTION.

MODIFICATION OR TERMINATION OF PROGRAM

The Program is offered at the discretion of GrantMe, and GrantMe reserves the right to terminate, suspend, or modify the Program, these Terms, the Rewards, conditions of participation, or any other aspect of the Program, in whole or in part, at any time, with or without notice, even though such changes may affect Rewards already earned.  You understand that the most recent version of the Terms will be available within this document.  Your continued participation in the Program following any modification of these terms indicate your acceptance of any modification to the Terms hereof.  You may object to the modification to the Program and/or its Terms by no longer participating.  

LIMITATION ON LIABILITY AND DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES

By participating in this Program, you agree that GrantMe and its agents, representatives, affiliates, officers, directors and employees will have no liability whatsoever for any injuries, losses, claims, damages or any special, exemplary, punitive, indirect, incidental or consequential damages of any kind, whether based in contract, tort, strict liability or otherwise, resulting from any use of the Program, any failure or delay by GrantMe in connection with the Program, or the performance or non-performance of the Program by GrantMe, even if GrantMe has been advised of the possibility of damages.  This disclaimer of liability applies to any damages or injury caused by any failure of performance, error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation, computer virus, communications line failure, theft or destruction, or unauthorized access to, alteration of, or use of your information.  

GrantMe makes no warranty of any kind regarding the Program, which is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis.  GrantMe expressly disclaims all warranties, including implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, non-infringement, and those arising by statute or otherwise in law or from a course of dealing or usage of trade.  GrantMe is not responsible or liable for any warranty, representation, or guarantee, express or implied, in fact or in law, relative to the Program, including without limitation that the Program will be error-free, or as to the accuracy, completeness and timeliness of any content or information distributed with respect to the Program.  WHERE JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY AND DISCLAIMER OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, THE DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS ABOVE, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.   

ADDITIONAL TERMS

Information collected from you will be used in accordance with the GrantMe’s Privacy Policy, located at https://grantme.ca/privacy-policy/

These Terms make up the entire agreement between you and GrantMe relating to the Program, and replace any prior understandings or agreements (whether oral or written) regarding the Program.  Any disputes arising from the Program or these Terms will be subject to the relevant provisions in GrantMe’s Terms of Use, located at https://app.grantme.ca/legal.
