The Makisu Referral Program (“Referral Program”) is offered by Makisu.co LLC, and its affiliates (together referred to as “Makisu”) and provides Users who are interested in referring their family and friends (“Referrers”) the opportunity to refer eligible individuals to join the Makisu community as new Users. These Program Rules apply to both referrers and referred Users, so please read carefully to understand your respective rights and obligations.
To be eligible to participate in the Referral Program as a referrer, you must (a) be a registered Makisu User; (b) be of legal age in your residing country; and (c) maintain a Makisu account in good standing. Referrers may be any User of the service. A single person may use the Makisu Platform in several ways (for example, as a client and virtual assistant). However, if you violate the Referral Program Rules or any applicable Terms of Service, Makisu may suspend or terminate your ability to participate in the Referral Program under any or all of your accounts. For example, if you are a User and virtual assistant and you both engage in prohibited referral activity under your User account, Makisu may terminate your ability to participate in the Referral Program under all of your Makisu accounts.
a. Referred Users
Through the Makisu Website, you may refer eligible individuals to become new Users on the Makisu Platform. In order to be eligible for a Referral Reward (defined below) for a new Rider, the person must (i) have never previously created a Makisu account; (ii) be at least the age of majority in your territory of residence, and (iii) satisfy the applicable Reward Criteria, as discussed below. If these conditions are met, the person shall be considered your “Referred Invite.”
b. Invite Link through the Makisu Platform
You are eligible to earn a referral incentive (“Referral Reward”) for each Referred User that you refer to the Makisu Platform (subject to certain maximum limits and the other terms in these Referral Program Rules). You may refer any person of your choice provided that they are not engaging in malicious or illegal activities (for example, drugs or smuggling) and compel Makisu to be involved in such activities. Makisu, at its sole discretion, may make available certain promotions with different Reward Criteria or Referral Rewards to other Users or prospective Users. These promotions, unless offered to you, shall have no bearing whatsoever on your Agreement or relationship with Makisu.
b. Earning Rewards for Referred Users
Referrers may receive Makisu free work credit upon the creation of the Referred Users new Makisu account (“Referral Credit”). Referral Credit is only valid for use on the Makisu Platform and is not transferable or redeemable for cash. Referral Credit may contain certain restrictions such as expiration dates or geographical use limitations which will be communicated to the User. New Users should check their user profile within the Makisu Website to determine whether they have Referral Credit and any restrictions on its use. Your credit is automatically used when you assign your next task. For example, if you have 60 minutes worth of work credit, it will only be consumed after the completion of a task. All terms and conditions for the distribution and use of Referral Credit are determined by Makisu in its sole discretion.
c. Maximum Rewards for Referrers
The maximum amount of Referral Rewards that Makisu will give for Users. You can earn up to 480 minutes or 8 hours of work credit. For every referral that creates an account on the Makisu site, you earn 20 minutes of free work credit. This maximum Referral Reward amount shall apply across all of your Makisu accounts. You may not create multiple Makisu accounts to circumvent the Referral Reward maximum, and Makisu may withhold or deny any amounts above the maximum Referral Reward. Makisu reserves the right to change this maximum amount, and it is your responsibility to review the Referral Program Rules for the current maximum limits.
d. Resolving Disputes over Referrals.
Only one person can earn a Referral Reward for a single Referee or Referred User. In the event that multiple persons claim credit for a particular referral or has not received any of the free work credit, Makisu has full discretion to determine which person earned such referral according to Makisu’s systems and address the problem.
e. Reservation of rights
