If you have any questions regarding the above summary of the Program, please contact us at [email protected]. Please carefully review the below Terms and Conditions for this Agreement. In order to participate or attempt to participate in our Program, you must accept this Agreement without change, in whole, as well as any agreement required by Refersion to create and maintain a Refersion Account. By registering for or using the Program, you expressly agree to this Agreement and all uses of the Program will comply with this Agreement, as may be amended from time to time.

of communication, or simply by sharing your Code via email, text, or otherwise (collectively, “your website”)
and your website and use of the Code must at all times comply with this Agreement.
In addition to any other requirements we or Refersion may impose from time to time, and without limiting our ability

Please read this Agreement carefully, and please consult with your counsel if you have any questions at all.

Compliance with the terms of this Agreement is a material condition of receiving any payments from Refersion in connection with use of the Code.
Please contact us if you have any questions about this or any part of this Agreement via email at
After receiving your application to register for the Program, we will review your application and notify you by email if your application has been approved. Please allow up to 72 hours for your application to be reviewed. We reserve the right to reject any application; however we encourage you to contact us if you feel we have made an incorrect decision. Although we make the effort to review and respond to each application to participate in the Program, sometimes applications do fall through the cracks. You are not enrolled in the Program until you receive a specific approval from us. In the event you do not receive any response, you are not yet enrolled in the Program. Please feel free to follow up if you have not received a response after 72 business hours. You may not at any time promote yourself or your website as being a part of the Program unless and until you have received an affirmative confirmation that you were accepted into the Program. You must be honest in your application, and any inaccurate or untruthful representations in your application may lead to your rejection from the Program, or your suspension from the Program, or further penalties as we see fit in our sole and absolute discretion.
2. ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Program, along with your Refersion Account, permits you to monetize the Code by sharing the Code with your friends and family or other third parties.
When customers click a Code to successfully purchase items from the HIPPO7 Collection, you may be eligible to receive payment from Refersion as a result of that sale, and as set forth in more detail in this Agreement and the Refersion agreement. Any payment earned from Refersion is referred to as a “Fee”. We need to ensure that you are aware that the Fee is not guaranteed and you cannot rely on receiving a Fee.
In order for a Fee to accrue, the sale of items from the HIPPO7 Collection (“Goods”) must originate from your Code. If a customer has our product in their e-basket, and they click your Code after the fact, you will not be eligible for a Fee.
Your own purchase of our product is not subject to a Fee, nor are sales to anyone at the billing or shipping address
you provide in your Account.
Duplicate or fraudulent transactions, as determined solely by us or Refersion, are not eligible for any Fee, may be
removed and the transaction may be reversed.
3. PAYMENTS. The payment will be made once per month via PayPal, to your email address of record. If your current payment due is less than $20, we may roll over the payment until the next month.
You must comply with this Agreement. You must promptly provide us with any information that we request to verify your compliance with this Agreement.
If you violate this Agreement, we reserve the right to withhold (and you agree you will not be eligible to receive) any and all of the Fee or other amounts otherwise payable to you under this Agreement, whether or not directly related to such violation; to rescind any Credit previously issued.
5. REVERSAL & COMMUNICATION POLICY
We reserve the right to reverse Fee and/or orders due to order cancellations, duplicate tracking, returns, disputed charges, and Program violations as outlined in this Agreement. All decisions regarding violations and Fee revocations is at HIPPO7’S sole and absolute discretion. HIPPO7 has broad discretion to determine how and when to allow a Fee, and in the event we believe that you are violating this Agreement, we may hold back some or all of the Fee that have already accrued, or forfeit some or all of the Fee.
Additionally, if we ask you for clarification or more information on any orders or clicks that we suspect may be in violation of our terms and conditions; we expect that you will respond in a timely and honest manner. Below are violations of our communications policy:
(a) You are not forthcoming, intentionally vague or are found to be lying. (b) You are not responsive within a reasonable time period and after multiple attempts to contact with information listed in your network profile.
(c) You cannot substantiate or validate the source of your traffic to our Program with clear and demonstrable proof.
(d) If any of the above conditions apply, then we reserve the absolute right to reverse orders, reduce your Fee, extend the pending period for your Fee, or suspend you from the program for the period or orders in question. We know that many violations are a result of automated processes; however it is incumbent upon you to ensure that you have the appropriate checks and balances in place to proactively address these issues and adhere to our program rules.

EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE AND OUR PARTNERS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO THE HIPPO7 MATERIALS, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF ANY COURSE OF DEALING, PERFORMANCE, OR TRADE USAGE.

FURTHER, OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THE HIPPO7 MATERIALS WILL NOT EXCEED THE TOTAL FEES PAID OR PAYABLE TO YOU IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT IN THE TWELVE MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE DATE ON WHICH THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE MOST RECENT CLAIM OF LIABILITY OCCURRED.

Any dispute relating in any way to the Program or this Agreement will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law and the laws of the state of California, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern this Agreement and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and us.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of this Agreement as a court would.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, we may seek injunctive or other relief in any state, federal, or national court of competent jurisdiction for any actual or alleged infringement of our or any other person or entity’s intellectual property or proprietary rights. You further acknowledge and agree that our rights in the Content are of a special, unique, extraordinary character, giving them peculiar value, the loss of which cannot be readily estimated or adequately compensated for in monetary damages.
We reserve the right to modify any of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement at any time and in our sole discretion by posting a change notice or revised Agreement, on our website or by sending notice of such modification to you by email to the primary email address then-currently associated with your Associates account (any such change by email will be effective on the date specified in such email but will in no event be less than two business days after the date the email is sent). YOUR CONTINUED PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM FOLLOWING THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF SUCH NOTICE WILL CONSTITUTE YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE MODIFICATIONS. IF ANY MODIFICATION IS UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU, YOUR ONLY RECOURSE IS TO TERMINATE THIS AGREEMENT.
Please contact us if you have any questions about this or any part of this Agreement via email at [email protected].
