For purposes of this Referral Program Agreement, references to Company include any Users authorized to participate in the Referral Program on Company's behalf. Company shall be fully responsible for the acts or omissions of its Users. By requesting or sending a Referral Link (defined below), you will be deemed to have accepted and be bound by this Agreement. The Terms of Service, as amended from time to time, is incorporated into and forms part of this Referral Program Agreement and shall apply to your participation in the Referral Program. In the event of any inconsistency between any of the provisions of the Terms of Service and this Referral Program Agreement, this Referral Program Agreement will control.

2. Qualifying Referrals
Tranch will provide you with a unique URL that can be provided to prospective Tranch customers (the "Referral Link"). Referred customers must be businesses or individuals engaging in commercial activity for the sale of goods and/or services. Referral Bonuses will only be awarded for Qualifying Referrals. A "Qualifying Referral" must meet all of the following conditions:
  1. The referred customer is not registered, and was not previously registered, with Tranch under any email address or alias;
  2. The referred customer is approved to use the Services, subject to Tranch's Know Your Customer ("KYC") process and Tranch approval policies in place at the time of the referred customer's application to register;
  3. The referred customer completes the registration process with Tranch using the referrer's Referral Link. If a referred customer registers with Tranch using any other link or method, the registration will not count as a Qualifying Referral; and
  4. The referred customer pays a minimum of $5,000 of invoices via Tranch and completes the first payment of their Initial Advance as defined as the first invoice funded via the platform over $5,000.
  5. The company will receive their bonus after their final repayment on their first invoice.

The Referral Link should only be provided directly to your Users' personal acquaintances. Additionally, you and your Users may not use any paid advertisement to promote the Referral Program, including but not limited to, paid search marketing, advertisements, affiliate networks, paid email campaigns or other similar methods. You may not use a Referral Link to create a new Tranch Account for Company, its affiliated entities, or yourself. By participating in the Referral Program, you represent and warrant that (i) each of your Users has a personal relationship with his/her referral or otherwise has the necessary consents to submit their information to the Referral Program; and (ii) each of your Users will comply with all applicable Tranch policies and terms, and any and all applicable laws or regulations.

3. Redemption Process
You may be eligible to earn a Referral Bonus for each qualified referral that you refer. The Referral Bonus changes from time to time and will be set forth on the relevant promotion page (e.g as a stored-value card or statement credit). The Referral Bonus is set to the value displayed on the relevant promotion page at the time the Referral Link is sent to the prospective customer.

You will receive a Referral Bonus when a Qualifying Referral is made. You will not be notified of whether a referred customer who has used your Referral Link has applied for a Tranch Account, or whether an application for a Tranch has been approved or denied. You will receive a notification, which may be in the form of a Referral Bonus delivered by a third party, if the Referral Bonus criteria are met. Please allow 8 weeks to receive the Referral Bonus. Your use of the Referral Bonus may be governed by additional or third party terms and conditions. Please note that the Referral Bonus may be issued to you or one of your authorized Users.
