Referral Program Terms and Conditions

Periodically, Nuvera may offer payment for new business referrals. For the purpose of this document, all terms below will be referred to as a “referral program.” The referral program is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations. This referral program will be void where prohibited.

Eligibility: The referral program is free to participate, and the referrer does not need to be a current customer of Nuvera. The referral cannot already be a Nuvera customer or have had Nuvera services within that last 12 months. The referral program is open only to those who fill out the referral form to his or her best abilities (subjective) on the business referral page and who are at least 18 years old as of the date of entry. Approved referrals will only be paid out to the business not to an individual.

Agreement to Rules: By participating, referrer agrees to be bound by these Rules, and represents and warrants that he or she meets the eligibility requirements set forth herein. In addition, referrer agrees to accept the decisions of Nuvera, as final and binding as it relates to this content.

How to Enter: The business owner or manager must fill out the referral program form completely to be eligible for referral payment. Entries that are not complete or do not adhere to the rules or specifications may be disqualified at Nuvera’s sole discretion. Referrer may have unlimited entries including multiple entries at once. If referrer spams the referral program with disqualified leads, Nuvera reserves the right to suspend referrer from further participation. If referrer uses fraudulent methods or otherwise attempts to circumvent the rules of the program, referrer’s submission may be removed from eligibility at Nuvera’s sole discretion.

Rewards: The two types of rewards available include a monthly recurring revenue award and a non-monthly recurring revenue reward. The monthly recurring revenue reward grants 1 month of the monthly recurring revenue that the referrer generated for Nuvera excluding cost of taxes and fees. The non-monthly recurring revenue reward grants the referrer a 25% commission on the referral sale excluding taxes and fees. The max earnings on any individual referral is $5,000. Monthly recurring revenue is defined as monthly recurring revenue Nuvera receives from services it provides to the customer. Non-monthly recurring revenue is defined as revenue Nuvera receives for a one-time purchase of goods or services from Nuvera. Reward payments will be made to a referrer only after the referral signs a business agreement, Nuvera services are installed, and the referral’s first bill is mailed to them. Nuvera has at minimum 45 days to send the payment to the referrer after correct referral criteria has been met. Nuvera pays out to businesses only. Nuvera will not reward individuals. Actual/appraised value may differ at time of prize reward. The specifics of the reward shall be solely determined by Nuvera. The reward is nontransferable. Any and all reward-related expenses, including without limitation any and all federal, state, and/or local taxes shall be the sole responsibility of the participant. No substitution of reward or transfer/assignment of reward to others is permitted. Acceptance of reward constitutes permission by the referrer for Nuvera to use referrer’s name, photo, testimonial, and entry for purposes of advertising and trade without further compensation, unless prohibited by law.

Terms: Nuvera reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel, terminate, modify, or suspend the referral program should a virus, bugs, non-authorized human intervention, fraud, or other causes beyond its control corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, or proper conduct of the referral program.

Nuvera has the right, in its sole discretion, to maintain the integrity of the referral program, to void referrals for any reason, including, but not limited to, instances where a business owner transfers new service to an entity replacing his or her prior business, the referral submitted was not serviceable, the referral was being asked to pay an individual rather than a business entity, the referral is not a net new customer and has had services with Nuvera within the last 12 months.

Nuvera reserves the right at its sole discretion to disqualify any individual who tampers or attempts to tamper with the entry process or the operation of the referral program or website or violates these Terms & Conditions.

Any attempt by an entrant to deliberately damage any website or undermine the legitimate operation of the referral program may be a violation of criminal and civil laws and should such an attempt be made, Nuvera reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law.

By entering the referral program, referrer agrees to receive emails periodically from Nuvera. Referrer can opt out of receiving this communication at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in the newsletter.

Limitation of Liability: By entering, referrer agrees to release and hold harmless Nuvera and its subsidiaries, affiliates, advertising and promotion agencies, partners, representatives, agents, successors, assigns, employees, officers,  directors and stakeholders from any liability, illness, injury, death, loss, litigation, claim, or damage that may occur, directly or indirectly, whether caused by negligence or not, from (i) such entrant’s participation in the referral program and/or his/her acceptance, possession, use, or misuse of any reward or any portion thereof, (ii) technical failures of any kind, including but not limited to the malfunctioning of any computer, cable, network, hardware, or software; (iii) the unavailability or inaccessibility of any transmissions or telephone or Internet service; (iv) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the entry process or the referral program; (v) electronic or human error which may occur in the administration of the referral program or the processing of entries.

Disputes: THIS REFERRAL PROGRAM IS GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA, WITHOUT RESPECT TO CONFLICT OF LAW DOCTRINES. As a condition of participating in this referral program, the participant agrees that any and all disputes which cannot be resolved between the parties, and causes of action arising out of or connected with this referral program, shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, exclusively before a court located in the State of Minnesota. Further, in any such dispute, under no circumstances will participant be permitted to obtain awards for, and hereby waives all rights to claim punitive, incidental, or consequential damages, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, other than participant’s actual out-of-pocket expenses (i.e. costs associated with entering this referral program), and participant further waives all rights to have damages multiplied or increased.
