Refer-A-Friend Terms and Conditions

Effective:  November 23, 2005

These terms and conditions apply to Dynadot's Refer-A-Friend program ("Program").  By referring a friend, purchasing services, or otherwise participating in the Program, the referring customer and/or referred friend, as the case may be, agree to be bound by these terms and conditions, the Dynadot Service Agreement, and Privacy Policy.

Program Period

The program begins at 12:00 AM (PST) November 1, 2005, subject to applicable law, and extends until termination of the Program by Dynadot (Program Period), subject to the following terms and conditions.

Eligibility and Program Requirements

You are an Eligible Referrer if you are both a registered Dynadot account holder and meet all of the following requirements:  (A) you must have a Dynadot account that is in Qualified Standing; and, (B) you are of legal age to enter into agreements, or you are at least thirteen (13) years of age and have your parents' permission to submit to the terms and conditions of this Program.  In order for your account to be deemed to be in Qualified Standing in accordance with the requirements of this Program, (a) your Dynadot account must have been in existence for at least 10 days at the time of your participation in this Program; (b) you must not have a "hold" or "disabled" status on your Dynadot account or on any service that you purchased from Dynadot; (c) your Dynadot account must not be suspended, deactivated, disabled, or past due during the Program Period; and, (d) you must have completed at least one (1) Qualifying Purchase prior to your participation in the Program.

If you are not and have never been a registered Dynadot account holder, then you are eligible to participate in this Program as an Eligible Referred Friend, subject to the requirement that: you are of legal age to enter into agreements, or you are at least thirteen (13) years of age and have your parents' permission to submit to the terms and conditions of this Program.  To qualify as an Eligible Referred Friend under this Program, you must satisfy the following requirements:  (A) you sign up for a Dynadot account at http://www.dynadot.com as a result of the Eligible Referrer's referral; and, (B) you complete at least one (1) Qualifying Purchase as a result of the Eligible Referrer's referral, and using the Eligible Referrer's Referral Code.

A "Qualifying Purchase" means a purchase of at least $2.99 in U.S. dollars by a Dynadot account holder for Dynadot services through the legitimate completion of a transaction on the Dynadot website, and remittance of full payment thereof.  As of August 25, 2011, prepay order items will not be considered a part of the "Qualifying Purchase" and will not be counted towards the $2.99 minimum purchase amount.  Completion of a Qualifying Purchase requires that Dynadot receive payment in full, and that there be no chargeback of payment, rejection of payment, or return of services for a period of one (1) calendar year following the initial transaction date.  Purchases of Dynadot services through third party vendors are ineligible for this Program.

Participation in the Program

To participate in the Program, Eligible Referrers must provide their Referral Code to their Eligible Referred Friends.  Referral Codes are unique series of numbers and letters, which are assigned to your account by Dynadot.  Subject to the requirements set forth herein, the Eligible Referrer will receive ten percent (10%) back in the form of account credit ("Referral Reward") of their Eligible Referred Friend's first (1st) completed Qualifying Purchase.  In order for an Eligible Referrer to qualify for a Referral Reward, an Eligible Referred Friend must provide the Eligible Referrer's Referral Code during the order checkout process on the Friend's first completed Qualifying Purchase.

Eligible Referred Friends do NOT qualify to receive any credit or Referral Reward under this Program.  However, after completing at least one Qualifying Purchase and subject to meeting any other eligibility requirements as stated herein, the Eligible Referred Friend may qualify to participate in this Program as an Eligible Referrer.

An Eligible Referrer will not receive any credit or Referral Reward if his or her referrals through the Program are rejected or are not received for any reason, or if he or she fails to comply with any of the obligations of the Program or these Terms and Conditions.  Upon the Eligible Referrer's qualification for a Referral Reward, only one (1) Referral Reward will be given to an Eligible Referrer per Eligible Referred Friend, regardless of how many Dynadot accounts or customer ID's the Eligible Referrer may have.  Referral Rewards are only available for referrals resulting in new Dynadot accounts by Eligible Referred Friends who complete a Qualifying Purchase.  Only the Eligible Referred Friend's first completed Qualifying Purchase through the Refer-A-Friend email or Referral Code will be eligible for credits and participation in the Program. 

Referral Rewards

Referral Rewards will be in the form of account credit, and may be used towards the purchase of services from Dynadot at http://www.dynadot.com.  Referral Rewards are calculated based on the amount of the Eligible Referred Friend's Qualifying Purchase. 

Referral Rewards will be credited to your Dynadot account within approximately ninety (90) days of the completion of a Qualified Purchase by your Eligible Referred Friend, subject to satisfaction of these terms and conditions and delays due to technical difficulties or other unforeseen circumstances.

Referral Rewards may be revoked, reversed, adjusted, or otherwise modified, at Dynadot's sole discretion, subject to the terms and conditions of this Program. 

Referral Rewards may not be sold, transferred, assigned, redeemed for cash, or combined with any other offer, discount, or promotion.  Referral Rewards are not transferable upon death, as part of a domestic relations matter, or otherwise by operation of law.  Referral Rewards may not be applied retroactively to prior purchases.  The awarding and use of Referral Rewards are subject to the Dynadot Service Agreement, and any other policies or terms of use set forth by Dynadot.  The use of Referral Rewards is also subject to current prices, limitations, and terms as set forth on the Dynadot website at http://www.dynadot.com.

Upon cancellation of service or closure of your Dynadot account for any reason, any unused Referral Rewards will automatically expire and may not be transferred, assigned, or redeemed for cash.  AS WITH ALL ACCOUNT CREDIT WITH DYNADOT, REFERRAL REWARD CREDITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE, NON-RETURNABLE, AND MAY NOT BE REDEEMED FOR CASH.

Additional Terms and Conditions

Dynadot reserves the right to modify, suspend or terminate the Program in its entirety or in part at any time and for any reason in its sole discretion, notice of which may be provided through revisions posted on Dynadot's website.

Dynadot reserves the right to void any Referral Rewards or credits issued by Dynadot in the event of payment rejections or failures, or ineligibility of a participant, or in the event Dynadot decides in its sole discretion that you have violated any of these Terms and Conditions or the Dynadot Service Agreement (and any policies incorporated therein).

If in Dynadot's opinion, there is any suspect or actual evidence of electronic or non-electronic tampering with any portion of the Program or the Referral Rewards, or if a computer virus, bugs, unauthorized intervention, fraud, or technical difficulties or failures compromise or corrupt or affect the administration, integrity, security, fairness, or proper conduct of the Program, Dynadot reserves the right at its sole discretion to disqualify or discontinue the participation privileges of any individual involved in any such harmful or illegal activities, and to modify or suspend the Program, or to terminate the Program.  Discontinued participation privileges may result in the loss of all accumulated rewards benefits.  Any attempt by an entrant or any other individual to deliberately damage any website or undermine the legitimate operation of the Program is a violation of criminal and civil laws and should such an attempt be made, Dynadot reserves the right to seek damages and other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law.  Any attempts by an individual to access any website associated with this Program via a bot script or other brute force attack or any other unauthorized means will result in the IP address becoming ineligible, in addition to any other remedies available in law or in equity.  Use of automated, programmed, falsified or the like entry devices or programs is prohibited and all such entries are void.

By participating in this Program, you agree and give consent to Dynadot to transmit emails and other communications to you concerning this Program and your participation therein.  Under this Program, an Eligible Referrer is able to use a Dynadot fillable form web interface to transmit emails to Eligible Referred Friends ("Referral Emails"), and to receive automatic updates about their Eligible Referred Friends' participation, including but not limited to email address, delivery confirmation of email invitation to referral, successful completion of Qualifying Purchase, amount of Qualifying Purchase, cancellation of service, failure to complete payment on a Qualifying Purchase, and other information about the Eligible Referred Friends as related to the administration of this Program.  By participating in this Program, an Eligible Referred Friend agrees that Dynadot may share such information with the Eligible Referrer.  Program participants agree to not use the Referral Email system to transmit spam or any other communication that is unrelated to this Program or that is not for the purpose of promoting Dynadot's services, as determined in Dynadot's sole discretion.  Dynadot is not responsible for any incorrect or inaccurate information supplied by customers or referred friends while participating in the Program.

By participating in this Program, you agree to Dynadot's collection, use, and disclosure of any personal information you may submit for the purposes of administering the Program and Referral Rewards, set forth in these Terms and Conditions, and set forth in our Privacy Policy.  To learn additional information on how the personal information collected in connection with the Program may be used, individuals should refer to the Dynadot Privacy Policy, located at http://www.dynadot.com/privacy_policy.html.  The terms of the Dynadot Privacy Policy are incorporated herein by reference.
