ShopCanal Inc. (“Canal”, "we," "us" the "Company") offers you the opportunity to earn rewards by referring friends to use Canal’s Applications and Services. Your participation in the Canal Referral Program ("Referral Program" or "Program") can earn you credits to use in conjunction with Canal Services, and may also grant you additional rewards. We reserve the right to terminate the Program at any time for any reason. The Program is administered by Canal, which may outsource certain elements of administration to third parties (collectively "Administrator").
These terms ("Terms") apply to a user's participation in the Program. Capitalized terms shall have the respective meanings ascribed to them in these Terms or in Canal’s Terms of Service. By participating in the Program, users agree to use the Program as outlined herein, and consistent with any other terms we may apply to the Program. If you do not agree to these Terms in their entirety, then you cannot register and participate in the Program. Users also cannot where in so doing, they would violate any applicable law or regulations.
Companies and employees of Canal Entities or their subsidiaries, affiliates or promotional agencies, including immediate family and household members, are not eligible.
How It Works
To participate, once you have joined Canal’s platform as a Storefront or Supplier, visit /refer within the Storefront or Supplier app and follow the on-screen instructions to start referring. You will be provided a link which you can share with your friends and partners as much as you want. If a user uses your Company Link and signs up and makes 10 sales via Canal in 90 days, each of you will receive a credit ("Credit") worth $100.00 US, to use for designated products and services on Canal’s Rewards Store. There is a limit of 10 unique lifetime referral Credits that a Referrer may receive, and Credits may only be used for designated Canal products and services and may never be redeemed for cash.
From time to time, Referrers may be offered special promotions ("Special Promotion"), and special links ("Bonus Links") to use. These Special Promotions may be offered to some, but not all Users, depending upon your Credit status, your geographic location, or for other reasons. Such Special Promotions are for a limited time and will give Referrers (and in some cases, Referred Customers) additional perks and rewards. Additional terms, including expiration dates for any Special Promotion will be provided with the Special Promotion. During Special Promotions, Referrers may use their Company Link and will receive Credit based upon the specific link used. Sorry, during any Special Promotion, the Referrer will only receive the identified credit outlined Special Promotion only if the Referred User completes the task prior to the end date of the Special Promotion period.
Referrers will be provided with a unique referral link ("Company Link") that allows Referrers to receive Credit. Each Referrer will be able to check his/her status on referrals by logging in to the Canal Application and checking the Referral Status. Referrers will also be provided with a unique Canal "Referral Status" page to check the status of his/her Qualified Referrals and to manage his/her referrals within the Application. Links will be issued one per company, and can be used by any user with Canal access. Referrers must respect the spirit of the Program by not engaging in spamming or other unfair or otherwise problematic practices, including creating fake accounts or harassing potential referral sources.
Conditions for Receiving Credit
Credit will be awarded for Qualified Referrals who meet the following conditions:
The Referred Customer must use the Company Link from a Referrer in good standing with Canal.
If a Referred Customer receives more than one Company Link, Canal will provide the Credit to the person whose Company Link is used to complete the Canal registration process regardless of when the Company Links were sent. If a Referred Customer registers for Canal using any other method, the registration will not count as a Qualified Referral and Referrer will not earn Credit;
The Referred Customer must not be previously registered with Canal under any email address or alias;
The Referred Customer must be eligible to join Canal’s platform as a Storefront or Supplier and otherwise be qualified. Canal reserves the right to deem any such Referred Customer as ineligible.
The Referred Customer must register using a valid and current email address that has not been used to register for Canal within the last 12 months.
How Credits Work
Referrers are allowed up to $1,000 in unique Credits (10 unique Qualified Referrals).
Credit is subject to verification and will generally be awarded within 60 days of verification. Canal Entities may withhold a Credit if it reasonably believes additional verification is required. Canal may also withhold or invalidate any potential it deems fraudulent, suspect, or in violation of these Terms. If Canal in its sole discretion believes awarding a Credit or verifying and approving a transaction will impose liability on Canal, its subsidiaries, affiliates or any of their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents.
All Canal Entities' decisions are final and binding, except where prohibited, including decisions as to whether a Qualified Referral, or Credit is valid, when and if to terminate the Program, and whether, if at all, to change the program. Any changes to the program will be sent via email to registered Referrer's and, except where prohibited, will become effective as of the date the email is sent. If a Referrer has referrals pending qualification at the time that updates are sent, those pending referrals shall be validated and Credits given under the terms that were valid at the time the Referred Customer signed up for Canal.
Use of Credits
Credits may only be used for qualified Canal products and services, which can change at any time. They may not be traded and have no monetary value, and may not be redeemed for cash, or traded. Credits are not transferable, salable, or auctionable. If the Program is terminated by Canal, Referrers will have 6 months to use any Credits before they are forfeited. If a Referrer's account is canceled for any reason, unredeemed Credits are forfeited immediately. If Referrer's account is suspended for any reason, upon resumption of account privileges.
