Terms and Conditions

Referral Program

Effective Date: January 1, 2019

These Terms and Conditions (the “Terms”) are effective immediately for anyone that has enrolled in the Trusted Ambassador Campaign (the “Campaign”) at invite.trustedhealth.com (the “Ambassador” or “you”).

If you are using the Campaign on behalf of a company or other legal entity, then “you” also means such company or legal entity, and you agree to be bound by these Terms even if we have a separate agreement with you. You may not use the Campaign if you do not agree to the version of the Terms posted at the time you enrolled in the Campaign. (The terms “Trusted” “we” and “us” refer to Trusted, Inc., a Delaware corporation.)

1. Campaign Overview

The Trusted Referrer Campaign (the “Campaign”) is a non-exclusive arrangement between Trusted and the Referrer. Participation in the Campaign by the Referrer allows the Referrer to promote services rendered by Trusted in exchange for the opportunity to earn commissions and/or rewards.

The Referrer represents to Trusted that they have read and understand the contents of this Agreement. The Referrer represents that they understand that participation in the Campaign is voluntary and contingent upon their full compliance with the Agreement.

2. Campaign Scope

Upon execution of this Agreement, Trusted will grant the Referrer the non-exclusive right to promote the employment placement services rendered by Trusted and made available on the Trusted website (www.trustedhealth.com) (the “Trusted Services”).

  1. The Referrer may identify potential users of the Trusted Services (“Friends”) and use any available channels to market, promote, and solicit sales of the Trusted Services (“Referral Activities”).
  2. The Referrer’s membership in the Campaign is non-exclusive, and Trusted reserves the right to solicit and accept other members into the Campaign. Further, Trusted may use its own personnel to market, promote, and solicit Friends without restriction.
  3. The Referrer will receive an “Invite Bonus” for every Friend that becomes employed through the Trusted Services and completes a contract (“Eligible Referral”), as described in this Agreement.
  4. Trusted makes no representations or warranties regarding the potential income that may result through participation in the Campaign.

The Referrer will be fully responsible for any and all costs and expenses associated with their participation in the Campaign. Trusted is under no obligation to reimburse the Referrer for any expenses related to their participation in the Campaign, for Referral Activities or otherwise.

4. Responsibilities to Properly Direct Traffic to Trusted

The Referrer will be provided with a unique Referrer link (“Referrer’s Link”) that must be used by any Friend to create an account at trustedhealth.com for the Trusted Service. A Friend can only become an Eligible Referral, and thus eligible for commissions, if a valid Referrer’s Link was used when the Friend first created their account Trusted.

5. Authority to Bind Trusted

The Referrer will be solely responsible, and Trusted will not be liable, for any acts, omissions to act, agreements, contracts, commitments, promises, or representations made by the Referrer.

    • Otherwise obligate or commit Trusted in any manner; or
    • Except for permitted use in Referral Activities, develop, distribute, or use any marketing, promotional, advertising, or sales material for the Trusted Services.

6. Eligible Referral

An “Eligible Referral” is a Friend referred to the Trusted website by your Referral Activities who creates an account with Trusted’s web application (at https://www.trustedhealth.com) and subsequently accepts and completes at least 400 hours of work through the Trusted Services and in accordance with their employment contract(s).

  1. A Friend will only be considered an Eligible Referral if they were first directed to Trusted through a Referrer’s Marketing Activities.
  2. Any Friends not properly identified through the use of the Referrer’s Link OR that first created an account on the Trusted website through means other than the Referrer’s Link will NOT be considered an Eligible Referral.
  3. Trusted will use its internal tracking systems to determine the channel that a Friend used to first enter the Trusted website.
  4. Trusted shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to accept or reject any Friend.
  5. No Friend shall become an Eligible Referral, or otherwise have any right to use the Trusted Services, unless Trusted enters into a legally binding agreement with such Friend.
  6. Having satisfied all other terms in this Agreement, a Friend will become an Eligible Referral when they complete their first 400 hours of work through the Trusted Services.
  7. The duration between the first time a Friend clicks on a Referrer’s link, and when they start an employment contract through the Trusted Services (“Cookie Length”), must be no more than one hundred and eighty (180) days to be considered an Eligible Referral for the Referrer.

7. Referrer's Invite Bonus

For the duration of this Agreement, Trusted will pay the Referrer the applicable Invite Bonus for each Eligible Referral.

For each Friend invited by the Referrer that starts an employment contract through the Trusted Services, the Referrer shall be eligible for a $1000 Invite Bonus when that Friend becomes an Eligible Referral.

  1. The Invite Bonus will be paid within sixty (60) days of becoming an Eligible Referral.
  2. Referrers who are due an Invite Bonus will be notified by email, telephone, and / or homing pigeon within fourteen (14) days following their Friend becoming an Eligible Referral.

If Referrer cannot be contacted, is ineligible, fails to claim the prize within thirty (30) days from the time that the award notification was sent, or fails to timely return required payment documentation, the Invite Bonus may be forfeited.

Trusted will retain all right, title, and interest in and to the Trusted websites, the Trusted Services, and all equipment, software, documentation, databases, development tools, know-how, methodologies, processes, and technologies provided by Trusted or its third-party suppliers for use in connection therewith, and all present and future worldwide copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, patent applications, moral rights, contract rights, and other proprietary rights therein. Trusted will own all data submitted by any Friend, and Trusted alone shall own the customer relationship with each Friend.

9. Confidentiality

The Referrer acknowledges that the fees set forth in this Agreement reflect the allocation of risk set forth in this Agreement and that Trusted would not enter into this Agreement without these limitations on its liability.
