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.

Term

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Program will run until December 31, 2018, or until CommunityProfit posts a message on this page that the Program is no longer in effect.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.

Your referrals

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 are legal. You should only contact people who have given you their consent to be contacted. You agree and represent that you will always be mindful to respect the privacy of others (i.e. do not spam), be honest, open, and transparent about who you are and what you are offering (i.e. do not mislead). Make sure to tell your friends, colleagues and others who you invite to join CommunityProfit to check the laws that may apply to them and that you educate them about what it takes to be a responsible Expert. More details are available at https://modernparentproject.com/experts/.

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.

Payment

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:

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.

Additional Incentives and Programs

From time to time, CommunityProfit may publicize additional incentives and programs applicable to particular markets. Such announcements will include specific information regarding the requirements for receiving such incentives in that market.

Taxes

Tax regulations may require us to collect appropriate tax information from Referring Experts, or to withhold taxes from payouts, or both. For instance, IRS regulations stipulate that we must collect an IRS Form W-9 from US persons who receive payment. You are solely responsible for keeping the information in your tax forms current, complete and accurate. If you fail to provide us with documentation that we determine to be sufficient to alleviate our obligation (if any) to withhold payments to you, we reserve the right in our sole discretion to freeze all payouts to you until resolution, to withhold such amounts as required by law, or to do both.

You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining (i) your applicable Tax reporting requirements, and (ii) the Taxes that should be included, and for including Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes. You are also solely responsible for remitting to the relevant authority any Taxes included or received by you. CommunityProfit cannot and does not offer Tax-related advice to you. Where applicable, or based upon request, CommunityProfit may issue a valid VAT invoice to you.

Nature of Relationship

You acknowledge and agree that it is a fundamental term and condition precedent of your participation in the Program that you are not an employee, intermediary or agent of the Company, and you will not hold yourself out as, or give any person reason to believe, that you are an employee, intermediary or agent of the Company. You agree nothing in your participation will be construed as establishing an employment or agency relationship between Company and you. Accordingly, you have not at any time been and are not entitled to, and hereby irrevocably waive any right or claim to, the benefits provided by the Company to its employees from time to time, including vacation time, benefits, salary, bonus, stock or stock options, profit sharing, insurance, or medical and health benefits. The Company will not carry any liability or other insurance on behalf of you or in your favor.

Warranties

You represent and warrant that: (a) you have all necessary consents and permits to participate in this Program, (b) you have no pre-existing obligations or commitments (and will not assume or otherwise undertake any obligations or commitments) that would be in conflict or inconsistent with or that would hinder your performance of your obligations under this Agreement, (c) you will fully comply at all times with all applicable laws and you will not infringe on any third-party (including CommunityProfit) rights.

Indemnity

You will defend, indemnify and hold CommunityProfit harmless from and against all claims, damages, liabilities, losses, expenses, and costs (including reasonable fees and expenses of attorneys and other professionals) arising out of or resulting from your negligence or intentional misconduct with respect to your participation in the Program.

Termination

CommunityProfit may terminate your participation in the Program at any time, for any reason or no reason. The rights and obligations of the parties under these Terms will survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement.

Exclusion and Limitation of Liability

In no event will CommunityProfit be liable for any special, incidental, punitive, exemplary or consequential damages of any kind in connection with this Agreement, even if the Company has been informed in advance of the possibility of such damages. In no event will the Company’s aggregate liability to you in connection with this Agreement exceed the aggregate amount of the payments made by the Company to you in accordance with this Agreement.

Modification

CommunityProfit reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify the program at any time by posting an update on this page. By continuing to access the Dashboard or recruit Referred Experts, you agree that the Terms are acceptable to you and binding on you. If the modified Terms are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Dashboard and to terminate your Program participation.
