Effective date: May 26th, 2022
1. Program Overview
Qwick uses technology to connect businesses with ready-to-work hourly temporary workers to work on-demand daily shifts across the United States (the “Qwick Platform”), featuring automation of workforce management and staffing functions.
Qwick offers referral programs to current Professionals and Businesses on the Qwick Platform (each, a “Referrer''). Referrers can refer individuals or businesses to join the Qwick Platform as a new Professional or new Business (each, a “Referred Professional'” or “Referred Business”, and generically as used herein from time to time, a “Referred User”). These Referral Program Rules apply to both Referrers and Referred Users, so please read carefully to understand your respective rights and obligations.
2. Referrer Eligibility
To be eligible to participate in the Referral Programs as a Referrer, you must (a) be a legal resident of the United States, (b) be at least 18 years old, (c) be legally able to participate in the Referral Programs, and (d) maintain a Qwick account in good standing (e.g., if you are referring on behalf of a current Business, the Business must not be delinquent or overdue on any fees owed to Qwick; if you are referring as a Professional, you must have a Qwick account that is eligible to work on the Qwick Platform (“Good Standing”)).
Further, if you are referring on behalf of a current Business, you must have all necessary authorizations to participate in the Referral Program on behalf of that Business, and you may not be an employee of Qwick or its subsidiaries, affiliates, or promotional agencies, including immediate family and household members.
If you violate the Referral Program Rules, the Qwick Terms or any other applicable terms (such as having more than one Qwick account), Qwick may in its sole discretion suspend or terminate your ability to participate in any Referral Programs (now or in the future). Qwick reserves the right to change, end, or pause, in whole or in part, any Referral Program, as well as any Referrer’s ability to participate in any Referral Program or receive Referral Rewards (as defined below) at any time for any reason, including for suspected fraud (including by either the Referrer and/or Referred Users), abuse, or any violation of the Qwick Terms.
3. Referred User Eligibility
Your friends, family, and other people and businesses you know (but not yourself) may be eligible to be Referred Users. To be a Referred User, the referred individual or business (a) must be a new user of the Qwick Platform (i.e., has never created a Qwick account or been contacted by Qwick’s sales team), (b) has not been previously referred by any other party (including yourself), and (c) meets the conditions Qwick has for using the Qwick Platform.
Please note that each Referred user can be referred only once, so if someone else has already referred them and they have accepted that invitation, they will not be able to accept yours. If you are providing Qwick with the contact information for your Referred Users, you represent that you have the right to provide that information.
4. Your Qwick Referral Code
Under any Referral Programs, Qwick may provide you with a unique numeric code (a “Qwick Code”) to distribute to eligible individuals or businesses to become new Professionals or Businesses. Qwick may also provide you with the ability to create additional Qwick Codes. Qwick owns all rights to any Qwick Code whether provided to you or created by you. You acknowledge and agree that (a) Qwick may limit the number of Qwick Codes you may create or that are made available to you based on the Referral Program in which you participate, or for any other reason in Qwick’s sole discretion, (b) you have no ownership rights in any form over the Qwick Code, (c) Qwick may reclaim, deactivate, invalidate and/or terminate your Qwick Code at any time at its sole discretion, and (d) you will only use your Qwick Code for personal and non-commercial purposes. To see if your Qwick Code has a limit, refer to the terms and conditions of the specific Referral Program in which you are participating.
5. How to Refer New Users to the Qwick Platform
a) Invitations through the Qwick Platform
You may invite individuals and businesses to become new users of the Qwick Platform directly through the Qwick Platform by navigating to the section of the Qwick mobile app (the “App”) that is designated as “Referrals.” Inviting an individual or a business through the Qwick Platform may generate an automatic invitation text (SMS) (standard rates and fees apply – check with your carrier for details) to the person and business which may be sent through your phone number. You represent that you have the necessary consent from your Referred Users to send them the invitation.
b) Other invitations
You may invite individuals and businesses to become new users of the Qwick Platform by distributing your Qwick Code directly to them and instructing them to manually input your Qwick Code into the Qwick Platform as a promotional code (a “Promo Code”) when they register to be a user on the Qwick Platform. An individual or business will not be able to apply your Qwick Code if (i) they’ve already applied another Qwick user’s Qwick Code or a different Promo Code, (ii) they’ve already received credit from Qwick or another source on their Qwick account prior to entry of your Qwick Code, or (iii) if the Qwick Code is not added onto the Referred User’s account prior to completion of their (the Referred User’s) first shift. If a Referred User does not enter your Qwick Code you will not receive attribution for the referral and they will not be considered your Referred User.
6. Referral Reward
Referrers are eligible to earn a referral incentive (“Referral Reward”) for each Referred Professional and/or Referred Business that they refer to the Qwick Platform, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in these Referral Program Rules and the specific Referral Program (“Reward Criteria”). Referred Users are eligible to earn a Referral Reward for signing up on the Qwick Platform, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in these Referral Program Rules and the specific Reward Criteria.
Reward Criteria may require that certain eligibility, criteria and/or conditions be met for the Referral Reward to be earned. Reward Criteria may include entry instructions and any other specific details, rules or conditions relating to a particular Referral Reward, and may be published on the Qwick Platform, Qwick’s website, social media platforms, advertising materials, or in any other media that features the applicable Referral Reward. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between these Referral Program Rules and the Reward Criteria, the Reward Criteria shall prevail. The Reward Criteria are set by Qwick at its sole discretion and are subject to change at any time. The Reward Criteria may vary by time, conditions, and/or service area (or within a particular market). The type of Referral Reward you are eligible to receive may depend on (i) the Qwick region associated with the Referred User when they apply the Referrer’s Qwick Code, (ii) the Qwick region where the Referred User posted or performed their first approved job, or (iii) other factors as determined and communicated by Qwick. Qwick, 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 Qwick.
In the Qwick Platform or Qwick websites, both the Referrers and the Referred Users may be presented with estimated amounts of the Referral Reward they may receive if all the Reward Criteria and other conditions described herein are met. These amounts are calculated based on certain assumptions, such as, without limitation, the Referrer’s or the Referred User’s location at the time they posted or performed their first job or downloaded the Qwick Platform, and may not be accurate based on the actual behavior of the Referred Users. Such amounts, therefore, are only estimates and may differ based on a number of factors. Qwick will make a good faith calculation of such amounts based on the location of the applicable Referrer and the Referred User. The Referrer and the Referred User will see the final applicable amount of their respective Referral Reward at the time when such Referral Reward is applied to their Qwick accounts and/or paid out.
b) Earning Referral Reward for Referrals between Qwick Professionals
In order to be eligible for a Referral Reward as a Referrer of a Professional, the Referred Professional must meet the eligibility criteria set forth in these Referral Program Rules in addition to the specific Referral Reward terms and conditions set forth by the applicable Reward Criteria.
The Referral Reward for both the Referrer and Referred Professional will be deposited to the Stripe Account (or similar account) associated with their Qwick account. Qwick reserves the right to change the method of payment, including but not limited to, Gift Card(s), Cash, and Digital Currency.
In order for a Referral Reward to be issued, a referral must be considered successful. A successful referral is subject to, without limitation, the condition that the Referred Professional complete the requirements outlined in the applicable Reward Criteria, and that they remain eligible on the Qwick Platform for 24 hours following the completion of the outlined requirements. Qwick has sole discretion to determine whether the above conditions have been met.
c) Earning Referral Reward for Referred Qwick Business Partners
When you refer a new Business to the Qwick Platform using your Qwick Code, you may receive a Referral Reward in the form of gift cards, direct payment to your Stripe (or similar) account, or any other method applicable to the specific Referral Program, at Qwick’s sole discretion. In order to receive a Referral Reward, the Referred Business must complete the signup process with Qwick and all requirements outlined in the applicable Reward Criteria, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in these Referral Program Rules and the applicable Reward Criteria. After a Referred Business has satisfied all such requirements, the Referrer will receive a notification from Qwick informing them of the completion. Your receipt of the actual gift card (if that is your specific form of Referral Reward) is conditioned upon Qwick’s receipt of your information necessary for the receipt of the gift card. The gift card will be sent out generally within 60 days after Qwick’s receipt of your verification and confirmation. Qwick cannot guarantee that a Referred Business will meet the requirements outlined in the applicable Reward Criteria as any Business’ usage of the Qwick Platform is entirely within their control.
If you are a Referred Business, you may receive Qwick credit (“Referral Credit”) if you complete Qwick’s signup process using a Referrer’s Qwick Code, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in these Referral Program Rules and the applicable Reward Criteria. Referral Credit is only valid for use on the Qwick Platform for qualified Qwick products and services, which can change at any time at Qwick’s sole discretion. The Referral Credit may noy be traded, has no monetary value, and is not transferable or redeemable for cash. The Referral Credit is subject to verification and will generally be awarded within 60 days of verification. Upon termination of the applicable Referral Program, the Referral Credits have a 6 month expiration date for use before they are forfeited. If a Referred Customer’s account is canceled, suspended, or closed for any reason, unredeemed Referral Credits are forfeited immediately. Qwick has sole discretion to determine whether the above conditions have been met.
d) Resolving Disputes over Referrals
Only one Qwick user can earn a Referral Reward for a single Referred Professional or Referred Business. In the event that multiple users claim credit for a particular referral, Qwick has full discretion to determine which person earned such referral according to Qwick’s systems.
e) Reservation of rights
Qwick reserves the right to withhold or deduct Referral Reward or Referral Credit obtained through the Referral Programs in the event that Qwick determines or believes that the receipt of the Referral Reward or Referral Credit was in error, fraudulent, illegal, or in violation of the Qwick Terms or any other applicable agreement between you and Qwick.
