These Dock Referral Program Rules (“Program Rules”) govern your participation in the Dock Referral Program. The Program Rules are in addition to any agreements between you and Dock Systems, Inc., including the Terms of Service, and the Privacy Policy as applicable. The Dock Terms are incorporated by reference and shall apply to your participation in the Referral Program.

Program Overview

The Referral Program (“Referral Program”) is offered by Dock Systems, Inc. and provides Users who are interested in referring their family and friends (“Referrers”) the opportunity to refer eligible individuals to join the Dock network. These Program Rules apply to both referrers and referred Users, so please read carefully to understand your respective rights and obligations.

Referrer Eligibility

To be eligible to participate in the Referral Program as a referrer, you must (a) be a legal resident of your country; (b) be at least 18 years old; (c) maintain a Dock account in good standing; (d) verify your Dock account. Referrers must have a verified account on the Dock App. A single person may use the Dock App
 in several ways, however, if you violate the Referral Program Rules or any applicable Terms of Service, Dock may suspend or terminate your ability to participate in the Referral Program under any or all of your accounts. If you engage in prohibited referral activity under your Dock account, Dock may terminate your ability to participate in the Referral Program and/or access any benefits on the Dock app and network.

Referral Codes

Under the Referral Program, Dock may provide you with a unique alphanumeric code (“Referral Code”) to distribute to eligible individuals to join the Dock network. Dock may also provide you the ability to invite your network contacts to signup with your referral code. Dock owns all rights in and to any Referral Code. You acknowledge and agree that: (a) Dock provides you a Referral Code at its sole discretion, (b) you have no ownership rights in any form over the Referral Code, and (c) Dock may reclaim, deactivate, invalidate or terminate your Referral Code at any time at its discretion.

How to Refer New Users

a. Referred Users.

You may refer eligible individuals to become new users in the Dock app. In order to be eligible for a Referral Reward (defined below) for a new User, the person must (i) have never previously created a Dock account; (ii) be at least 18 years of age, and (iii) satisfy the applicable Reward Criteria, as discussed below. If these conditions are met, the person shall be considered your “Referred User.”

b. Invitations through the Dock App.

You may invite your family and friends to become new Users directly through the Dock App by entering or providing Dock with your invitee’s contact information (all information collected by Dock under the Referral Program shall be governed by Dock's Privacy Policy). Inviting an individual through the Dock App may generate an automatic invitation email (the “Invitation”) to the person. Follow-up Invitations may be sent to remind individuals you referred of your invitation. The Invitation may contain a promotional offer of dock tokens to a new user who verifies their account. You represent that you have the necessary consent from your invitee to send them the Invitation (either directly or through the Dock App). If your invitee follows the links in your Invitation and creates a Dock account using the information provided, your Referral Code will be automatically applied on the new User's account, as applicable.

c. Other Invitations.

You may also invite eligible individuals to become new Users by distributing your Referral Code directly and instructing them to signup to the Dock App directly through your Referral Code link. A User will not be able to apply your Referral Code if (i) they’ve already applied another User’s Referral Code or a different promotion code, (ii) they’ve already received DOCK tokens from Dock on their User account prior to entry of your Referral Code, or (iii) they create a Dock account prior to entering your Referral Code in their Account. If a User does not use your Referral Code you will not receive attribution for the referral and they will not be considered your Referred User. Dock reserves the right to supply new Users with DOCK tokens at its discretion.

Referral Rewards

a. General.

You are eligible to earn a referral incentive (“Referral Reward”) for each Referred User that you refer to the Dock App (subject to certain maximum limits and the other terms in these Referral Program Rules). As discussed above, in order to qualify as your Referred User, the new User must satisfy the applicable Reward Criteria. The Reward Criteria are set by Dock in its sole discretion and are subject to change at any time. The Reward Criteria may vary by market or within a particular market. Dock, at its sole discretion, may make available certain promotions with different Reward Criteria or Referral Rewards to other Users or prospective Users. These promotions, unless offered to you, shall have no bearing whatsoever on your Agreement or relationship with Dock.

If the new User that you refer satisfies the Reward Criteria, the type of Reward you are eligible to receive may depend on (i) the timing of the signup and verification of a Referred User, (ii) changes in the Referral Rewards, or (iii) other factors as determined and communicated by Dock.

b. Earning Rewards for Referred Users.

New Users you refer may receive DOCK tokens upon creating and verifying their new Dock account (“Referral Credit”). Withdrawing DOCK tokens earned for the Referral Credit may require additional information to be provided and actions taken to withdraw the DOCK tokens. This may include, but is not limited to (i) providing information for a KYC (Know-Your-Customer) and AML (Anti-Money Laundering check, (ii) providing tax information (iii) providing additional details as requested by Dock team members.

Referral Credit may contain certain restrictions such as expiration dates which will be communicated. New Users should check the Earn section  within their Dock app and relevant articles in the Dock Help Center to determine whether they have Referral Credit and any restrictions on its use. In order to satisfy the Referral Criteria, the referred User must verify their account. All terms and conditions for the distribution and use of Referral Credit are determined by Dock in its sole discretion.

c. Resolving Disputes over Referrals.

Only one person can earn a Referral Reward for a single Referred User. In the event that multiple persons claim credit for a particular referral, Dock has full discretion to determine which person earned such referral according to Dock's systems.

f. Reservation of rights.

Dock reserves the right to withhold or deduct Referral Rewards or Referral Credit obtained through the Referral Program in the event that Dock determines or believes that the receipt of the Referral Reward or Referral Credit was in error, fraudulent, illegal, or in violation of these Referral Program Rules or any other applicable agreement between you and Dock.
