Expert Referral Program
Terms and Conditions for Referring Experts
Last Updated: September 1, 2017
Description of the Program
The CommunityProfit Expert Referral program (“Program”) permits select, invited CommunityProfit Experts to earn money (see Payment section below) by referring to CommunityProfit first time, new Experts (“Referred Experts”) who upload Content, provide Consultations and successfully complete bookings. Only Experts who have accepted at least one reservation are available to participate. A “Completed” booking is a booking that is accepted by the Referred Expert and paid for by the Consumer and which is not canceled by either the Consumer or the Referred Expert at any time before or after the scheduled check-in for such booking.
Referred Experts will be attributed upon Referring Expert’s invite. To participate, Referring Experts must agree to these Terms. The Program may not be combined with other CommunityProfit referral programs or incentives. When you refer a Referred Expert, the Expert will see your CommunityProfit listing and profile on the landing page for your Referral Link.
Use of the Dashboard
You agree that you will not use the Expert Referral Dashboard (“Dashboard”) for any purpose other than tracking your own progress and the progress of others in your geographic area. You will respect the privacy of others and comply with applicable laws.
This Program will run until December 31, 2018, or until CommunityProfit posts a message on this page that the Program is no longer in effect. If an Expert that you Referred before the end of the Program gets their first booking, you will still receive Payment for the referral.
You agree to (i) use best efforts to refer Referred Experts to upload Content and provide Consultations through the CommunityProfit platform; and (ii) educate Referred Experts on how to use the CommunityProfit platform, including how to accept bookings through the CommunityProfit platform, by pointing them to resources at modernparentproject.com. You may not represent yourself as an employee, intermediary or agent or as being authorized to bind the Company. You may not create materials (including business cards, websites or email addresses) bearing Company branding or that imply any affiliation or agency relationship between you and CommunityProfit. However, you must state that you are a Referring Expert who is encouraging Experts to contribute to CommunityProfit. For clarity, this includes CommunityProfit’s “The Modern Parent Project” or “MPP” branded site.
You agree and represent that you will use referral methods and techniques that people will appreciate and that
You agree that you will not set up accounts, create appointments, or prepare Content on behalf of Referred Experts and that you will not be eligible for payments if you are in breach of these Expert Referral Program Terms.
You will receive payments for bookings Completed by Referred Experts, and Experts they refer in turn three deep (three degrees of separation). Payments are calculated as a percentage of the amount of each booking that the Company has made eligible for referral payments (“Available Referral Pool”) as follows.
- For each Completed Booking by your Referred Expert (your “R1”): 50% of the Available Referral Pool
- For each Completed Booking by a Referred Expert of your R1 (your “R2”): 30% of the Available Referral Pool
- For each Completed Booking by a Referred Expert of your R2 (your “R3”): 20% of the Available Referral Pool
Should you establish a viable virtual community of Experts on the CommunityProfit Platform, you are eligible to receive 100% of the Available Referral Pool for each Completed Bookings by either you or your R1. In no case will total payments exceed the Available Referral Pool.
The Available Referral Pool is calculated on a per-bookings basis as follows:
- A maximum of forty-five percent (45%) of the Community Expert Service Fees
If you are based outside the US, you may receive the equivalent in your local currency (i.e., the currency of the payment method that you have selected for payouts). Where applicable, the local currency equivalent will be calculated using a system-wide rate, known as the base exchange rate, for currency conversion using data from one or more third parties, such as OANDA. We regularly update the base exchange rate, but it may not be identical to the real-time market rate.
To qualify for any payouts, the Referred Expert’s first received booking must have a value (excluding taxes, and special offers) of at least $100 USD (or the equivalent in your local currency). The Referred Expert has 120 days from the date they are invited to Complete their first booking in order to earn the Payment.
No payment will be made for Consultations created by current or former CommunityProfit Experts, or for bookings made by family or friends of the Referred Expert. All Referred Experts must be new, first time Experts. Payouts of qualifying events will be made within five (5) business days of each month end, to the payout mechanism you designate on your CommunityProfit account. The CommunityProfit Terms of Service as it relates to the application of taxes applies to any Program payout.
Whether a payout is due shall be a decision made in the sole discretion of CommunityProfit. CommunityProfit reserves the right to any remedy, including denial of payout or cancellation of your account, if fraud, tampering or other violations of CommunityProfit’s Terms of Service or these Terms are suspected.
