SMILEDIRECTCLUB - "INVITE-A-FRIEND" PROGRAMME
We (SmileDirectClub, 414 Union St., 8th Floor, Nashville, TN 37219) are pleased to be able to offer you the opportunity to take part in our invitation-rewards scheme (the "Invite-a-Friend Programme"), which is described in greater detail below. If you are making the invitation, you are the "Inviting Friend". If you are the person invited, you are the "Invited Friend". These are the terms applicable to our Invite-a-Friend Programme, and by participating in the Invite-a-Friend Programme you (whether you are an Inviting Friend or an Invited Friend) agree to abide by these terms. There terms are governed by English law.
2. How the Invite-a-Friend Programme works in practice?
To refer our products and/or services to an Invited Friend using our Invite-a-Friend Programme, the Inviting Friend should go to the following link: https://smiledirectclub.co.uk/invite. The Inviting Friend is then able to insert their email address where indicated to reveal their personalised URL, which they can share with any of their friends (being the Invited Friends) through email, Facebook Messenger or SMS with a pre-populated or personal message. Please mark all personalised messages at the start with the word "Ad". The pre-populated message is currently as follows (but may change from time to time): SmileDirectClub is giving friends of the Club £75 off their purchase of clear aligners. In addition, I get a gift card when your aligners ship. Win-win!
An Invited Friend will then receive the Inviting Friend's message, and if any such Invited Friend clicks-through the link that is provided to them (alongside the Inviting Friend's message) then they will be redirected to one of our webpages where they will have the option of entering their email address and obtaining a unique discount code which will entitle them to £75 off their purchase of clear aligners ("Invitee Benefit").
If any Invited Friend chooses to use that unique discount code when purchasing aligners from us (which they will have the option to do), then in addition to the Invited Friend receiving the Invitee Benefit, the Inviting Friend will receive a £75 Mastercard® gift card ("Inviter Benefit") after the Invited Friend’s purchase ships. If the Invited Friend does not complete a purchase of aligners from us, or the Invited Friend cancels their purchase before shipment, the Invited Friend will not be entitled to the Inviter Benefit.
3. If a successful invitation is made, when will the Invite-a-Friend Programme benefits be received?
The Invitee Benefit will be received as a discount off the price that the Invited Friend is required to pay to us for the aligners that they have purchased. This discount is applied at the point of payment by the Invited Friend.
The Inviter Benefit will only be sent to the Inviting Friend (electronically or by post) shortly after we have sent the Invited Friend's aligners out for delivery (either to their postal address or to the address of their dental practice). The Inviting Friend should receive the Inviter Benefit within within 2-3 weeks of us having sent the Invited Friend's aligners out for delivery, but we cannot guarantee this will always be the case.
4. Other significant terms
An Invited Friend is only ever be entitled to one Invitee Benefit (irrespective of how many invitations to participate in the Invite-a-Friend Programme they receive). In other words, if an Invited Friend has already received an Invitee Benefit as a result of an invitation made to them by an Inviting Friend, then they will not be entitled to the Invitee Benefit again in any future purchases or orders they place with us.
An Inviting Friend is only ever entitled to one Invitee Benefit, as it relates to any invitations made to an Invited Friend under the Invite-a-Friend Programme. In other words, if the Inviting Friend has already received the Invitee Benefit as a result of an Invited Friend having received an Invitee Benefit, then such Inviting Friend will not be entitled to receive the Inviter Benefit again as a result of any future purchases or orders that such Invited Friend places with us (irrespective of whether those purchase or orders are made pursuant to separate invitations).
Neither the Invited Friend nor the Inviting Friend will be entitled to the Invitee Benefit or the Inviter Benefit if such persons are in fact the same person. For example, you cannot refer our products and/or services to yourself (by using a different email address, social media account or otherwise) in order to obtain the Invitee Benefit and/or the Inviter Benefit.
Use of the Inviter Benefit will at all times be subject to the terms imposed by Mastercard® directly between them and the Inviting Friend as a recipient of that benefit. These terms can be located here: MasterCard® Terms. We do not accept any responsibility or liability for the failure of MasterCard® to provide the Inviting Friend with the Inviter Benefit or fulfil its obligations under its own terms.
We do not accept any responsibility or liability for any infrastructure or third-party failure which results in the Inviting Friend not receiving the Inviter Benefit (including internet or email service failures).
We do not accept any responsibility or liability for any tax liability resulting from the Inviter Benefit. Any such liability is solely the Inviting Friend's responsibility.
Only individuals may use the Invite-a-Friend Programme. The Invite-a-Friend Programme is not open to any businesses or corporations, and no benefits shall be awarded to any such businesses or corporations.
To participate in the Invite-a-Friend Programme you must be a legal UK resident who is 18 years of age or older. Employees of SmileDirectClub are not eligible to participate in the Invite-a-Friend Programme.
5. We have strict rules against spamming, ensuring the protection of personal data, and compliance with advertising standards
Any Inviting Friend participating in the Invite-a-Friend Programme, must at all times comply (and warrants that they will comply) with anti-spamming and data protection legislation and advertising rules and regulations in the United Kingdom (including, without limitation and as amended, the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679, the Data Protection Act 2018, the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003, and the Advertising Standard Agency's CAP Code ("Example Data, Communication and Advertising Standards")). Emails should be created and distributed on an individual basis (and the consent of all Invited Friends should be obtained in advance of sending any personalised messages to them) and bulk email distribution is strongly discouraged. Any distribution of an Inviting Friend's personal URL that could constitute unsolicited commercial email, a data protection breach, breach of advertising rules or regulations or "spam" under any applicable law is expressly prohibited and will be grounds for immediate termination of an Inviting Friend's account with us and exclusion from our Invite-a-Friend Programme.
Inviting Friend hereby indemnifies us for any losses, damages or costs that we may incur which arise a result of Inviting Friend's breach of any applicable law, rule or regulation or any act or omission by Inviting Friend which results in our breach of any applicable law, rule or regulation (including, without limitation and as amended, the Example Data, Communication and Advertising Standards).
6. Cancellation Rights
We reserve the right to cancel the Invite-a-Friend Programme or to change these terms at any time on one (1) months' notice. We will honour any Invitee Benefits or Inviter Benefits validly owed (in accordance with these terms) during such one (1) month notice period.
We reserve the right to close an Invited Friend and/or Inviting Friend account at any time in our sole discretion if such Invited Friend and/or Inviting Friend uses the Invite-a-Friend Programme in a suspicious or unscrupulous manner (for example, if a personalised message sent with an invitation is inappropriate or offensive) or for breaches any of these terms or for breaches of any applicable law, rules or regulations (including, without limitation and as amended, the Example Data, Communication and Advertising Standards). If we do cancel any such account for any of the above reasons, then such Invited Friend and Inviting Friend will immediately pay to us an amount equal to the value of any Invitee Benefits and/or Inviter Benefits that have been received from us by such Invited Friend and/or Inviting Friend.
We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability under the Invite-a-Friend Programme for (i) death or personal injury caused by negligence, or (ii) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
Subject to the above paragraph, we shall under no circumstances whatsoever be liable to any Invited Friend or Inviting Friend, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, for any indirect or consequential loss arising under or in connection with these terms, and our total liability to any Invited Friend or Inviting Friend in respect of all other losses arising under or in connection with these terms, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, shall in no circumstances exceed the value of a single Invitee Benefit or Inviter Benefit, as applicable.
