Hotspot Shield Referral Program Terms

Effective date: April 30, 2020

These Hotspot Shield Referral Program Terms (”Terms”) govern your participation in the Hotspot Shield Referral Program (“Program”) offered by Pango. These Terms supplement, are subject to, and are incorporated into the Hotspot Shield Terms of Service at https://www.hotspotshield.com/terms/. Capitalized terms that are otherwise undefined in these Terms have the meanings given to them in the Hotspot Shield Terms of Service.

1. Program Description and Eligibility

The Program offers basic users of the Hotspot Shield VPN app for Windows (“Referrers”) an opportunity to earn rewards when they refer eligible persons who then subscribe to the Service (“Referees”). By participating in the Program, you agree to be bound by the Hotspot Shield Terms of Service, including these Terms.

To be eligible as a Referee, a person must not be an existing user (whether paid or free) to the Service.

2. Earning Referral Rewards

As part of the Program, Pango will provide Referrers with a unique referral link (“Referral Link”). All Referral Links will expire on August 1, 2020, unless extended by Pango. A Referrer may share their Referral Link in accordance with these Terms.

Each Referrer will be eligible to receive Referral Rewards (defined below) once the following conditions are met: (a) a Referee clicks on that Referrer’s Referral Link, and (b) that Referee then installs the Service through the Referral Link on one of the following platforms: macOS, Windows, iOS or Android (each, a “Qualifying Referral”).

If a Referee clicks on multiple Referral Links before subscribing, the Qualifying Referral will only be attributed to the last Referral Link they clicked on before subscribing.

For each Qualifying Referral, the following “Referral Reward” will be issued at no additional cost:

(i) the applicable Referrer will be given a 7 day Hotspot Shield premium subscription; and

(ii) the applicable Referee will be given a 3 day Hotspot Shield premium subscription (in addition to any free trial period that the Referee may sign up to for Hotspot Shield Premium immediately following the end of the 3 day subscription).

Referral Rewards for Referrers are capped at a maximum of 70 days of Hotspot Shield premium under the Program.

We will determine, in our sole discretion, whether a Qualifying Referral completes the subscription process to a Hotspot Shield plan using a Referral Link and whether a Referrer or Referee are eligible to receive a Referral Reward, in each case, in accordance with these Terms.

3. Restrictions and Limitations

Referral Links may only be shared for personal and non-commercial purposes. Referrers may not share their Referral Links in any manner prohibited by applicable law.

We may investigate any suspicious or inappropriate activity relating to the Program. Notwithstanding any provision of these Terms, we are not obliged to grant any Referral Rewards if we determine, in our sole discretion, that: (a) you have breached these Terms; or (b) you have engaged in any abusive, fraudulent or deceitful behavior in connection with the Program. Referral Rewards have no cash value.

4. Non-Exclusive

The Program is non-exclusive. You agree that we may, at any time, solicit customer referrals via any method in our sole discretion.

5. Modification, Termination or Suspension of Referral Program

We may modify these Terms from time to time in our sole discretion, subject to applicable law. When we revise these Terms, we will post the revised version at this URL (or a successor URL). You are free to decide whether to accept a revised version of these Terms, but if you do not agree to any revised version of these Terms, your sole recourse is to terminate your participation in the Program, provided however you will retain any Referral Rewards you may already have earned prior to termination.

We also may, in our sole discretion, suspend or terminate the Program, or your right to participate in the Program, for any reason at any time.
