Referral terms and Conditions

We invite Members and Subscribers to earn Ellie Referral Credits ("Referral Credits") by introducing your friends and contacts to Ellie. By earning and redeeming Referral Credits you are agreeing to the following additional terms and conditions: If two people refer the same friend, the friend who sent the invitation first shall be deemed the referring friend, regardless of which link was sent to the new member first.

This offer is limited to one referral and email address per friend, although there is no limit to the number of friends you can invite. Friends who register using multiple accounts or email addresses will be subject to account termination and the $10 Referral Credits issued to you for that referral will be canceled.

You may not spam or send unsolicited emails to persons you do not know personally to collect Referral Credits and you may not collect Referral Credits by posting on message boards, blogs or other online venues to people you do not know personally. Referral credits generated from such online postings will be canceled and we reserve the right to cancel your Ellie Membership.

Redeeming Referral Credits; Expiration: Referral Credits may be used for any new purchase on (exclusive of shipping, handling, taxes or other applicable transaction costs). You may not use Referral Credits to apply against an active subscription, buy gift cards or to pay shipping, handling, taxes or any other applicable transaction costs. Unredeemed Referral Credits will expire 365 days of inactivity.

Prohibitions and Cancellations: Referral Credits are issued to a single Ellie account at our discretion and cannot be transferred, bartered, sold or used for a purchase where payment is made using payment information (e.g., a credit card number or PayPal account) that is already associated with another Ellie account.

Referral Credits are loyalty/promotional offers and are not a payment instrument; they are issued without any exchange of money or value from you and you have no vested property right or interest in Referral Credits. Referral credits may be canceled at any time for any reason or no reason.

Referral Credits have no cash value by themselves and cannot be redeemed for cash.

Ellie reserves the right to cancel your Referral Credits if we determine in our sole discretion that you have violated these terms or any of our Terms of Service, including through your fraudulent or misleading referral activity (for example, by inviting fake people to join Ellie, using false names, using multiple email accounts or email addresses, impersonating another person or otherwise providing false or misleading information to us) or if we terminate your account for any reason. You may also be liable for civil and/or criminal penalties under applicable law.

Changes to Referral Credits Terms: Ellie reserves the right in its sole discretion at any time and without prior notice to you, to add to, remove or otherwise change the terms applicable to the issuance and use of Referral Credits. Such changes may include without limitation, how you may earn and spend Referral Credits, how long Referral Credits last, minimum purchase amounts with which Referral Credits may be used and the lifetime maximum amount of Referral Credits that you may earn.

In addition, we reserve the right to terminate any referral programs at any time in our sole discretion, including without limitation, if we believe that it is impractical to administer the program in compliance with applicable law. In such case all Referral Credits will be void 30 calendar days after termination of the program is announced.
